Fischer: Our Prayer During Anti-Gay Rally Played A Role In Republican Election Victories

On Sunday evening, anti-gay Religious Right activists gathered in Houston, Texas for an "I Stand Sunday" event, designed to protest subpoenas issued by the city government to five local pastors in response to a lawsuit filed by activists attempting to overturn the city's nondiscrimination ordinance.

The American Family Association's radio broadcasting arm was among the main sponsors of the event and Bryan Fischer was there in person to cover the rally, so naturally he declared on his radio broadcast today that this prayer event played a key role in the Republican victories in last night's election.

"It occurred to me last night," Fischer said, that "a good part of Sunday night was a lot of these pastors in Houston and a lot of people all around the country kneeling in prayer on the floor of that auditorium, repenting of sins, seeking God for forgiveness for ourselves and for this land. And then, on Tuesday, we have this dramatic victory. I've got to believe there's a connection there":

Allen West Says Democrats Are Still The Party Of Voter Intimidation And The KKK 'Except With A Different Type Of Tactic'

Allen West was a guest on Newsmax's "MidPoint" radio program today where he declared, with the help of some absurdly leading questions from host Ed Berliner, that Republicans were victorious last night because black voters have finally started to realize that everything the Democrats have said for the last half-decade is nothing but a collection of lies.

After Berliner declared that the Democratic strategy in this election amounted to little more than hateful fear-mongering, West said that such tactics should not come as a surprise to anyone who knows anything about history.

"You look at the history of the Democrat Party and it's always been about fear-mongering, intimidation of the voters, coercion," West said. "They're the party of segregation. They're the party of the Ku Klux Klan. They're the party of Jim Crow. They're the party of poll taxes and literacy tests and things of this nature, it's just that they continue to do it except with a different type of tactic in the Twenty-First Century."

When Berliner asked West if black voters are now finally starting to see that "what the Democrats have been telling them for the last fifty or sixty years are just a collection of lies that are finally coming back to haunt them," West readily agreed, saying "I do believe so."

Of course, according to exit polls, nearly 90 percent of African American voters backed Democratic candidates:

Meet 'Dr. Chaps' Gordon Klingenschmitt: Colorado's New Anti-Gay, Demon Hunting State Legislator

Gordon "Dr. Chaps" Klingenschmitt, a radical anti-gay Religious Right activist who brags of having once tried to rid of woman of the "foul spirit of lesbianism" through an exorcism and who openly proclaims that "American law needs to reflect God's law" and that our foreign policy must be based on the Bible, won election to the Colorado House of Representatives last night.

Klingenschmitt, who wrote a book about how President Obama is possessed by demons and once performed an exorcism of Obama, ran an utterly embarrassing campaign yet nonetheless managed to defeat his Democratic opponent by nearly 40 points.

Since Klingenschmitt is now officially an elected Republican legislator, it seems like a good opportunity to take a look back at the radical views he will now be bringing into the Colorado legislature.

Klingenschmitt is a viciously anti-gay theocrat who believes that gay people "want your soul" and may sexually abuse their own children, which is why he says they should face government discrimination since only people who are going to heaven are entitled to equal treatment by the government:

He has declared that judges who strike down gay marriage bans are "imposing the Devil's law upon people" and are deceiving people into Hell, warning that these rulings will eventually be overturned by Jesus, who will send all gay people to Hell:

Klingenschmitt has declared that the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy should never have been repealed since gay soldiers cannot serve effectively in combat because they are constantly "taking breaks on the combat field to change diapers all because their treacherous sin causes them to lose control of their bowels." He also proclaims that those who are not welcome in the church should not be entitled to use public restrooms.

Gays, he says, have something inhuman and demonic inside of them, which is why he declares that teaching kids about gay marriage is mental rape and advocates for Christians to print anti-gay Bible verses on the backs of gay wedding photos:

Klingenschmitt is a man who thinks that "Obamacare causes cancer," that the Bible commands people to own guns in order to "defend themselves against left wing crazies," that ISIS is a sign of the End Times, and that the FCC is allowing demonic spirits to "molest and visually rape your children" ... and now, thanks to the votes he received from more than 17,000 citizens, he is also an elected Republican legislator in the state of Colorado:

Gheen: GOP's 'Immediate Focus' Should Be Impeaching And Prosecuting Obama

In the wake of last night's elections, which saw Republicans gain control of the Senate and gave the party complete control of Congress, William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is wasting no time in calling upon the GOP to use its newfound power to "investigate, impeach, and prosecute Obama."

Gheen, a radical anti-immigration activist who once threatened that violence may be necessary to stop President Obama's war on "White America," sent out an email early this morning declaring that the GOP's victories "will be short lived" if it does not immediately take steps to remove Obama from office:

The mandate from the American public in 2014 is not to go to DC to "work together" with Democrats, but to stop Obama and to stop Obama's abuses of power and violations of the existing federal laws and US Constitution on immigration and other matters.

ALIPAC is encouraging lawmakers to build and sustain the momentum of the 2014 elections by making the immediate focus investigating the Obama administration and proceeding to impeach and prosecute all who are found to be in violation of US laws!

"America's problems are not legislative, they are structural! We need Constitutional governance restored in America, illegal activity in the Obama administration stopped and those responsible brought to justice more than we need any legislation from the new Republican Congress!" said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "If the GOP pursues amnesty, the party will split and be dashed upon the political rocks of history in 2016. If they investigate, impeach, and prosecute Obama, Holder, and Lerner, then the criminal revelations could permanently destroy the Democratic Party which could go the way of Acorn!"

The Obama administration has engaged in many impeachable and criminal activities that were major driving forces in the historic Republican backlash against Obama that manifested in the 2014 elections.

These scandals that need investigation and justice applied include, but are not limited to, the Fast and Furious Gunwalker scandal, Eric Holder's contempt of Congress charges, the mishandling of the Benghazi crisis, Obama's first DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) amnesty decree, the Obama border surge federal smuggling ring, ATF Grenade Smuggler scandal, using the IRS to target Obama's political opponents, spying on members of the media, refusing to enforce existing immigration and border laws, DOJ lawsuits and other decrees designed to protect and encourage illegal immigrants in America, recess appointments made by the President when Congress was not in session, and DHS efforts to demonize Obama's political opponents and conservatives as domestic terrorists, to name a few!

Fischer: Conservative Christians Must Vote Because America Is 'Turning Into Nazi Germany'

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer declared that it was imperative for conservative Christians to get out and vote today because America is "turning into Nazi Germany."

Fischer, who once declared that calling your opponent a Nazi was proof that you had lost the argument, stated that just as Adolf Hitler was legitimately elected, so too were "the Nazi-esque mayor of Houston [and] the Nazi-esque mayor of Coeur d'Alene."

Upon taking office, Fischer continued, Hitler's first order of business was to tell the church to stay out of politics and to accept that it was to have no influence on the operation of the government and now the same things are happening in America today.

"Is this the United States in 2014 or Nazi Germany of 1933?" Fischer asked. "I'll let you decide":

Laurence White: With Houston Subpoenas, Satan Has Finally 'Tipped His Hand'

Laurence White, pastor of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Houston, Texas, was the guest on today's broadcast of "WallBuilders Live" where, predictably, the controversy over the city government having subpoenaed documents, including sermons, from a few local pastors came up for discussion.

White remarked that by issuing these subpoenas, which have since been withdrawn, Satan had finally "tipped his hand."

"What's happening is The Adversary, in his arrogance and his pride, has become so bold that he's tipped his hand," White said. "He's usually the great masquerader who hides his real goal, bit in this case, he made the mistake of revealing his true agenda."

This is not a political debate, White declared, but rather proof that the "godless humanism of the religion that has come to predominate throughout our culture" believes itself to be so powerful that it can now openly seek to destroy Christianity.

"Christians may finally begin to recognize how much is at stake here and what we stand to lose," White hoped. "This is about the integrity of our faith as Christians":

Glenn Beck Reveals The Intricate George Soros Plot To Make Hillary Clinton The Next President

When he is not talking about how much he hates talking about politics, Glenn Beck spends a lot of time talking about politics; so much so that he spent the entire first hour of his radio program yesterday laying out a scenario through which expected Republican gains in today's election will result in Hillary Clinton becoming the next president in 2016.

As Beck envisions it, if Republicans take control of Congress, our political system will then become a showdown between President Obama, who will become increasingly radical, and the Republicans, which will allow Clinton to stake out the middle ground between the two and coast into the White House.

In fact, Beck said, he is pretty sure that this plan was all laid out in a secret meeting between Clinton, Obama, and George Soros way back in 2008.

Admitting that he has absolutely no evidence to back any of this up, Beck nonetheless spun out his theory about how Soros ordered the unions to back Obama in the Democratic primary as a message to Clinton to "back off" and get out of the way so that Obama could become president, at which point he would implement so many radical policies that he would transform the nation but also become wildly unpopular as a result.

That would then allow Clinton to run in 2016 by pretending to be a moderate who can save the nation, thereby allowing her to waltz into the White House and complete the total transformation of our country.

"You will be the mother of the country, where [George] Washington was the father of the country," Beck imagines Soros having told Clinton. "And [Obama] will be remembered as the mother-blank of the country."

"I believe a conversation like that is likely that it happened" he said:

'God Is Not Done With America': Ted Cruz Rallies Religious Right Voters To Save The Nation

For the last two days, Sen. Ted Cruz has been the guest on "Life Today," telling host James Robison that it is vitally important for Christians to vote so that America can continue to enjoy God's blessings.

On yesterday's program, the Texas Republican declared that Christians are required by Scripture to vote and cast their votes based on biblical values. After praising his father's efforts to mobilize right-wing pastors and get them involved in politics, Cruz said that Christians could fundamentally reshape this nation is they simply voted according to the Bible.

"Can you imagine how different our country would be if an additional 70 million Evangelical Christians simply showed up and voted biblical values?" Cruz asked. "We would be on a fundamentally different path": 

On today's program, Cruz wholeheartedly agreed with Robison's assertion that the Founding Fathers "were under some kind of powerful umbrella of divine providence influence" when they created this nation.

"From the founding of our country, America has enjoyed God's providential blessing at every stage," Cruz said. "When the Declaration and Constitution were drafted, they were drafted on the knees of the Founding Fathers through prayer."

"I'm convinced," he continued, that "God is not done with America. That his blessings are still on this nation, and that the American people when the challenges are great, rise to the occasion":

Jeffress: Christians Are Being 'Persecuted' In America Because Satan Is Trying To Destroy Christianity

While filling in for Bryan Fischer on the "Focal Point" radio program today, guest host Fred Jackson interviewed pastor Robert Jeffress about last night's "I Stand Sunday" event in Houston. Jeffress said he hoped that the event would wake Christians up to the fact that their religion is under attack by Satan and that this nation is well on its way the wholesale persecution of Christians.

When Jackson asked why Christians are being attacked in America while there are no similar sorts of attacks against Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists, or "Islamics," Jeffress said that it was obviously due to the fact that Satan "has been trying to extinguish the Christian message ever since he inspired Herod to try to kill the Christ child."

"There is a spiritual reason why Christianity is uniquely under attack like this," he said, as he and Jackson both hoped that the controversy in Houston will wake Americans up to the fact that "spiritual warfare is very real."

Jeffress admitted that the so-called "persecution" of Christians in America is nothing like what is experienced by Christians in other countries, but warned that this nation is still marching down the path toward that same sort of persecution happening here in the very near future.

"You start, first of all, by marginalizing Christians," he said, "which Christians are increasingly being marginalized. And then you paint them as extremists, which is what is happening right now. And then once you've succeeded in turning the public's attitude toward Christians as that of being extremists, then it's okay to launch a persecution against them. And I believe that's what's happening right now and I believe we're going to see it increasingly occur":

Perkins: Protecting Anti-Gay Discrimination In America Will 'Give The World Hope'

It is worth remembering that the entire impetus behind last night's "I Stand Sunday" rally was an effort by anti-gay activists to repeal a nondiscrimination ordinance passed by the city of Houston that extended protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, because it puts in context Tony Perkins' statement that protecting "religious liberty" at home will go a long way toward protecting Christians in the Middle East from religious persecution.

As the Family Research Council president sees it, failure to allow anti-gay Christians in America to discriminate in the name of "religious freedom" is feeding the persecution of Christians worldwide.

"There is a connection between the growing hostility toward biblical Christianity here at home and persecution abroad," he said. "And the reason is very simple: if the policies of our own government toward Christians in America is intolerant, the message that that is sending to despots and to dictators in far-away places is that religious freedom is no longer a priority or even a concern for America."

By standing up for anti-gay Christians who seek to deny equal rights to gays in America under the guise of religious liberty, Perkins said, "you will give hope to far-away places around the world."

"It's time that we stand once again for religious freedom here in America and give the world hope," he said:

Eric Metaxas Is Not At All Being 'Hyperbolic' When He Warns That America Is At Risk Of Turning Into Nazi Germany

During last night's "I Stand Sunday" event, organizers showed a video featuring Eric Metaxas, author of a recent biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in which he warned that if the church does not stand together against government oppression, America will follow the path of Nazi Germany.

Just as Bonhoeffer tried to get churches in Germany to link arms and fight Hitler, Metaxas said, so too must churches in America rally together to push back against the government's increasing tyranny.

"The parallel today is simply that you have a government, a state, which is getting larger and larger and more and more powerful and it is beginning to push against the church," he warned. "There's a window of opportunity where we can fight. If we don't wake up and fight before then, we won't be able to fight. That's just what happened in Germany and that's the urgency we have in America now. And people think that's incendiary or I'm being hyperbolic. I'm sorry, I wish, I wish, I wish I were. I'm not":

Houston Pastors Say America Is Becoming A Police State Like Cuba and Vietnam

Last night's "I Stand Sunday" rally opened with remarks from some of the Houston pastors who had their sermons subpoenaed by the government as part of the lawsuit seeking to overturn the city's nondiscrimination ordinance, with pastors from Cuba and Vietnam warning that America was now falling under tyranny, just like the nations they had fled.

Magda Hermida declared that she and her husband had fled Cuba's police state because their rights to free speech and free exercise of religion were oppressed by the government only to discover that now the same thing is happening in America.

"This mayor wants to use her power to see the sermon of our pastor and use them against us," she said. "The police state this creates is that same that my husband and I experienced in Cuba."

Khanh Huynh echoed that statement, declaring that he and millions of others had fled Vietnam because "the freedom of speech and freedom of religion were among the first to be lost in Vietnam and now I'm facing the same marching boot of tyranny right here where I live."

Finally, Willie Davis railed against the city's nondiscrimination ordinance, asking "how can you call something right when it's all wrong" and declaring that since the city had no problem with anti-gay discrimination, the ordinance has ended up needlessly dividing the city because gay rights is not a civil rights issue.

"I'm deeply offended simply by this ordinance," Davis stated, because "it piggy-backs on the 1964 Civil Rights Act which has nothing to do with this [issue]." With the crowd giving him a standing ovation, Davis declared that they will continue to fight against this ordinance until it is repealed "for we know it's what's right in the sight of God":

Alan Robertson Warns That Satan Is Out To Destroy 'Duck Dynasty'

Following his father's pledge not to "take a leak" in the women's restroom at last night's "I Stand Sunday" event, conservative pastor Alan Robertson of the reality TV show "Duck Dynasty"doubled down on his comments from last week that the "Evil One" is out to destroy his family.

Conservative Christians need to warn this nation of "the dire consequences of unrestrained living against the will of God," Robertson told the crowd, because "it will destroy us all."

"I don't want to be in Sodom and Gomorrah, waiting until the last possible moment and then look up and realize that I waited too long," he said. "That my family now is on the altar of sacrifice because I didn't make a difference before the catastrophe came."

"There is an Evil One, an enemy who is against us," Robertson continued. "He is there and he is fighting us and we have to take the fight to him":

Phil Robertson Helpfully Announces That He Won't 'Take A Leak' In The Women's Restroom

Last night, anti-gay activists gathered in Houston, Texas, for an event called "I Stand Sunday" to rally against subpoenas issued by the city government to five local pastors as part of a lawsuit filed by activists in an effort to overturn the city's nondiscrimination ordinance.

The subpoenas have been withdrawn, but right-wing activists are still demanding that the petitions they had submitted to put the nondiscrimination ordinance on the ballot be honored by the city, rallying around the cry of "let the people vote!"

The main contention of the activists is that the ordinance would, in the words of one pastor featured in a promotional video played during the event, create a nightmare scenario of "a grown man going into the restroom with a six-year-old girl, standing alongside of her, using the restroom."

The fear of men using women's restrooms was played up by Phil Robertson of the reality television program "Duck Dynasty," who opened his remarks at last night's event by assuring thet women in the audience that when he needs "to take a leak," he will not use their bathroom.

"For all you ladies in Texas, trust me when I tell you this," he said, "when you're seated in your restroom, putting on your Maybelline, when I need to take a leak, I'm not going there":

President Gingrich's First Order Of Business Would Be To Call The Nation To Prayer

Right-wing pundit Gina Loudon has been guest-hosting the "Focal Point" radio program all week while Bryan Fischer has been on vacation and today she conducted an amazingly sycophantic interview with Newt Gingrich during which he declared that if he found himself elected president tomorrow, his first order of business would be to deliver a national address calling the nation to prayer.

The comment was precipitated by Loudon asking Gingrich what he would do to address America's various problems if he woke up tomorrow to discover that he had been elected president, to which he replied that his first priority would be to address the "scale of shock" the nation would be under to realize that it now had a President Gingrich.

He added that he would use Franklin Roosevelt's D-Day speech in which he called upon the nation to pray for success and for the safety of those involved as a model for his presidential address.

"I suspect the first thing I would do," he speculated, "is to say to the country, 'You're probably in as much shock as I am and we should all go to God in prayer because we're going to need it to get America out of the problems it's currently in'":

Michele Bachmann Has Big Plans For Her Future: 'I Intend To Have My Voice And My Thoughts As Far And Wide As I Possibly Can'

Appearing on Newsmax TV's "Midpoint" program today, Rep. Michele Bachmann told host Ed Berliner that she fully intends to play a significant role in public policy debates and the 2016 presidential election after leaving Congress at the end of her term, especially if Hillary Clinton wins the Democratic nomination.

As the only Republican woman to ever participate in televised presidential debates and "the only woman Republican candidate who ever won a presidential contest," Bachmann asserted that "I occupy a unique space" in public sphere and therefore she intends to be "heavily involved in the 2016 race, in particular if Hillary Clinton is the nominee for president on the Democrat [sic] side."

Bachmann, of course, won the Iowa Straw Poll in 2011 which, as its name suggests, is nothing more than a nonbinding poll, as even the official website readily admits that "the Straw Poll results have no official or legal effect."

Nonetheless, Bachmann has big plans to "be in the national media," speaking around the country, appearing on radio and writing weekly columns and perhaps even a book.

"I intend to have my voice and my thoughts as far and wide as I possibly can," she pledged, "to bring in the perspective of the conservative movement in this upcoming race in 2016. It is the pivotal race in our lifetime and I wanna be involved":

Beck: Don't Join The Military Because 'We Have A Chance Of Losing Our Country In the Next Two To Three Years'

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck answered some questions submitted by his listeners, including one from a parent of a son who wants to join the ROTC, which the parent opposes because America's "leadership is so corrupt," asking Beck if he would allow his own son to join the military.

"I wouldn't want my son joining the military now," Beck declared, saying that no matter who becomes the next president, America is going to implode.

"Starting Tuesday, until the inauguration of the next president," he said, "this is the most dangerous time in our nation's history."

"All it's gonna take is a Black Swan event and I think we could be in deep, deep trouble," Beck warned. "We have a chance of losing our country in the next two to three years":

Getting Out the Youth Vote in the Midterms

With elections for tight races all across the country just a few days away, People For the American Way Foundation’s Young People For (YP4) program is pulling out all the stops to help young voters get to the polls and cast their vote this November 4.

As overreaching new voter ID laws threaten to stifle the voices of Americans in a number of states, getting out the vote has never been more critical. YP4 Fellows and alumni have been working hard to ensure that students, people of color, women and other underrepresented communities get their equal say in our democratic system. Our 25 YP4 Vote Organizers are spread across the country in 15 states, working to conduct community outreach, voter engagement, and volunteer recruitment to help mobilize their communities to vote.

Throughout this year, YP4 activists have also advocated for resolutions to enfranchise student voters and increased the number of young registered voters by over 2,000 through dozens of trainings and events.

YP4 has dedicated itself this election cycle to helping young leaders make informed and motivated voters out of those who are routinely overlooked by politicians. In a year in which some lawmakers have sought to discourage voter turnout, campaigns like YP4’s ARRIVE WITH 5 initiative, which encourages voters to bring five or more friends to the polls, help shape a government that actually represents the governed.

The midterm election is no time to stay at home. In a campaign season of extremely narrow races, each and every vote has an impact. We can only make our democracy work for everyone when all Americans are encouraged to engage in civic life and realize what a real difference their voices can make.

Head Of Alabama Christian Coalition Opposes Anti-Sharia Amendment: 'This Is A Tremendous Waste Of Effort'

When voters in Alabama go to the polls next week, one issue they will be asked to decide is whether the state constitution needs to be amended to outlaw Islamic Sharia law through Amendment 1, which would "prohibit the application of foreign law in violation of rights guaranteed natural citizens by the United States and Alabama Constitutions."

A similar amendment in Oklahoma was struck down as unconstitutional.

Normally, these sorts of efforts are nothing more than attempts to gin up right-wing activists by enshrining Christian privileges in states where Christians already dominate all levels of government. In fact, so obvious is this strategy and so needless is this amendment that even Randy Brinson, president of the Alabama Christian Coalition, has come out against it:

"This is a tremendous waste of effort. It's is a waste of time and it  costs money," Brinson said Thursday morning, talking with AL.com between seeing patients at his medical practice in Montgomery. "This just creates a whole new headache for people involved in foreign adoptions or who get married in another country. My frustration is that people -- good people -- get behind something like this just because they want to score political points with the Christian community. But it's redundant - you don't need to amend the constitution to address these issues. I just don't think they thought through this particular thing."

...

"I understand the sentiment behind this, but Sharia law is not going to be implemented in Alabama, it just isn't," Brinson said. "And this would just be another stigma for Alabama, another way of saying to other countries: 'We don't respect your laws.'"

"Alabama law - or laws from outside the state -- either comports with the law of the United States or they don't," Brinson said. "This is just silliness. It's all something that lawmakers can trumpet back to constituents that they're protecting Christian values, but they need to be working on other stuff."
