Tony Perkins: 'I Fear For The Country And What May Occur' If Congress Doesn't Defund Planned Parenthood

The Family Research Council's Tony Perkins appeared on Glenn Beck's television show last night to promote his new book, "No Fear," and both men warned that God's judgment will rain down upon this nation if Congress fails to defund Planned Parenthood.

"I fear God much more than I fear man," Beck said. "I believe that the Lord has made it so clear on Planned Parenthood, couldn't be more clear on Iran, more clear on 'black lives matter' versus 'all lives matter.' I fear that we are at Jeremiah."

Perkins agreed, saying that God always "presents the evidence before He passes judgment" and that the Planned Parenthood smear videos are God's evidence of America's wickedness.

"This is why it is so important what Congress is doing," Perkins said. "I've had this discussion with congressional leaders, this is our moment, our opportunity. If we say this is just another political deal and we're going to back down, I fear for the country and what may occur."

Mat Staver Claims 'The View' Called For Kim Davis To Be Killed [UPDATED]

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver asked listeners to pray for his client Kim Davis because she is supposedly receiving vile death threats from the hosts of the television show "The View."

Davis, a Kentucky county clerk who was jailed earlier this month for repeatedly prohibiting her office from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples, was the subject of a segment on "The View," Staver said, where one of the hosts called her a "monster" and said that she should be killed.

"I would encourage you to pray for Kim Davis, pray for her family, pray for those that work with her, pray for Liberty Counsel," Staver said. "Kim has received just horrible death threats, even from 'The View,' amazingly. They called her a monster on national television, one of them said that someone ought to go kill her. This is on a major network. That was on 'The View' on ABC. I mean, that was astounding, that kind of language was happening on a major TV network."

We have no idea what Staver is talking about. While we can find plenty of articles reporting the "monster" comment, we haven't been able to find a single thing that supports Staver's claim that one of the hosts of "The View" called for Davis to be killed ... and one would think that if a host openly advocated murder on a national television show, that is the sort of thing that would probably have made a bit of news.

UPDATE: Liberty Counsel has informed us that Staver was mistaken and has issued a correction. Here is the explanation of what happened:

Thank you for pointing out Mat Staver's mistake in his description of 'The View' program on Kim Davis.  Here is what happened: on Mat Staver’s September 10 appearance on The Kelly File, Megyn Kelly played Mat a montage of people saying hateful things about Kim Davis. Megyn Kelly started with a clip from ‘The View,’ which led into a clip from the HLN ‘Dr. Drew’ show, on which Mike Catherwood said, “Like Mike Huckabee says, ‘Sign me up.’ I’ll do it. I’ll go kill her. I’ll go kill her and—and whatever toothless redneck . . . .”  Mat could not see the video because he was on an LTN link, and understandably thought Catherwood’s statement occurred on ‘The View.’

Here’s the Kelly File video (Catherwood’s comment is around 2:42 on the video).

Thank you for pointing out this error. We are correcting our online version of our radio program.

Glenn Beck's $10 Million Refugee Effort Aims To Save Only Christians

In conjunction with his "Never Again Is Now/Restoring Unity" rally in Birmingham, Alabama, last month, Glenn Beck announced the creation of something called "The Nazarene Fund," through which he is seeking to raise $10 million dollars to help relocate refugees who are fleeing the chaos and violence in places like Iraq and Syria.

With that money, Beck hopes to be able to save more than 2,000 refugees, which he repeatedly points out is more than the number of Jews that Oskar Schindler saved during World War II, and is even vowing to personally lead some of these refugees into the United States by marching them across the southern border, even if doing so lands him in jail.

Of course, as the name suggests, this effort is aimed only at saving Christians because, as Beck emphasized several times during his radio program today, he has no way to tell "which is the good Muslim and which is the bad Muslim."

"There is no differentiation between them that we can actually tell," Beck explained. "I wish we could take the Muslims who have been marked for death because they will not play the game of ISIS, but I don't know whose side you're on because you have not stood up en masse and differentiated yourself. So I can't figure that one out, that's beyond me to figure out. So I can try to help those we can figure out ... The right thing is to save people's lives, especially those who you know are not here to kill us, not here to convert us or behead us. Again, I wish I could say this about others, but the only ones I know for sure don't want to convert or kill us are those Christians in the Middle East who have been marked for death."

Like His Wife, Joe Davis Has Now Become A Religious Right Celebrity

Yesterday, the Family Research Council announced that Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who became a Religious Right hero for prohibiting her office from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples, would be receiving an award at its upcoming Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C.

It turns out that Kim is not the only member of the family who has been transformed into a Religious Right celebrity, as her second/fourth husband Joe Davis will be a featured speaker at an upcoming "Stand in the Gap for Truth" rally being organized by the Tennessee Pastors Network, which is an arm of the American Pastors Network.

Davis will be speaking along with Richard Land, E.W. Jackson, Rafael Cruz and several others:

Joe Davis had been living a quiet life in Kentucky with his wife, Kim. But this summer, the Davises were thrown into the national spotlight over religious freedoms and the rights all Americans have when it comes to their closely held religious convictions.

As Kim returned to work in the Rowan County’s clerk’s office yesterday, after being jailed for six days for refusing to issue marriage licenses to any couple, Joe is traveling to Nashville to rally others to stand for their freedoms like his wife did.

On Thursday, Joe Davis, often seen wearing his signature straw hat and overalls, will be a part of an exciting and much-needed event that will help motivate Tennesseans to defend their religious freedom and uphold God’s design for the nation at the “Stand in the Gap for Truth” Rally, hosted by the Tennessee Pastors Network (TNPN, www.tnpastors.net).

Starting at 11 a.m. Sept. 17, the rally will take place at the Legislative Plaza, 301 6th Ave N in Nashville. Pastors throughout Tennessee who are part of TNPN will partner with state legislators to host the event that will engage Tennesseans to address the most talked-about issues of the day such as shifting marriage and family foundations, an unworkable immigration system, weak terrorism laws, failing education, a damaging nationalized health care system, lack of religious freedom protections and the blatant violation of the U.S. Constitution.

“This summer, Kim and Joe Davis have been a part of a religious freedom battle of a lifetime,” said TNPN President Dale Walker. “And now, we are honored to welcome Joe to the ‘Stand in the Gap for Truth’ Rally, as he has shared about their experiences that have essentially changed this nation’s history. We are thankful for those like the Davises who have stood for freedom—not only for themselves, but for all Americans. In Nashville on Thursday, we want to fill the Legislative Plaza with thousands who want to take that stand, too.”

Fischer: Impeach Judge Bunning For Imposing An Unconstitutional 'Religious Test' On Kim Davis

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer called on Congress to remove U.S. District Judge David Bunning from office for supposedly imposing a "religious test" on Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis by requiring her to do her job.

As Fischer sees it, the Constitution prohibits requiring a religious test to hold public office and so by holding Davis in contempt for preventing the county clerk's office from issuing marriage licenses, Bunning was unconstitutionally imposing a religious test by declaring that Christians are not allowed to hold public office.

It is Davis, of course, who is imposing her religious views on everyone else, but Fischer thinks that not allowing her to do that amounts to the imposition of an unconstitutional religious test.

"He imposed a religious test on Kim Davis," Fischer said. "He said if your religion does not allow you to affirm homosexual behavior and homosexual marriage, you can't work here. So basically, he instituted a ban on Christians serving in public office because of your religion. I'm applying a religious test to you, you've got to have a religious view that is okay with gay marriage are you are not going to be allowed to serve in public office."

Therefore, he said, "it would clearly be appropriate for Judge Bunning to be impeached and to be removed from office."

Glenn Beck: A 'Massive Crisis' Is Coming That Will Unleash The Worst Evil The World Has Ever Seen

Glenn Beck issued yet another dire warning on his radio program today, telling listeners that a "massive crisis" is on its way which will unleash the worst evil that the world has ever seen.  But people shouldn't give up hope, Beck said, because it'll all work out for the glory of God.

"The arm of God is starting to move," Beck said, "and I'm sorry to say that I think massive crisis is coming our way ... It will happen, I think sooner rather than later, but a massive crisis is coming."

"I truly believe ... Man, there's times that I say things that I know are true and this is one of them," he continued, later in the broadcast. "8/28 is more than a date, it is a lifestyle, but it is also a promise. Romans 8:28. Summary: No matter what happens, all of it is going to be for Him. All of it will work into His plan."

"He is going to take some of the worst things that we have ever seen in our lifetime and, quite honestly, some of the worst things that any human being has seen that is alive today — now think about all of those people who survived the Holocaust who are still living today — worse things than anyone who is alive today has ever seen, we will see in the next five to eight years," Beck said. "But understand, have great faith because all of it will be to His good and glory."

Theodore Shoebat: Force Gays To Submit To Christianity Through 'Death And Strong Suppression'

Last week, virulently anti-gay activist Theodore Shoebat posted a video declaring that gays have a deeply demonic desire to murder Christians and warning all the "sodomites" that they will one day be violently forced to submit to Christian values.

Citing reports that Kentucky clerk Kim Davis had received death threats for refusing to allow the county office to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, Shoebat said that this should come as no surprise because every gay person harbors a violent desire to kill Christians.

"When we see these threats, it really shines a light on the demonic and satanic and violent desires that these homos have," he said. "Do not think for a second that the sodomites would treat us peacefully! Do not think for a second that the sodomites do not want to commit persecution against Christians. I do not hesitate at all to say that the sodomites — and I say this with confidence — that the sodomites would not hesitate to kill people like me, to kill Kim Davis, to kill other Christians, to kill anyone who is opposing their agenda."

But gay activists will not be allowed to get away with persecuting and murdering Christians, Shoebat vowed, because right-wing militias are already rising up to protect people like Davis and to force gays to submit to Christianity.

"It's either/or," Shoebat declared. "You either make the sodomites submit to Christian morality, to the law of God, to the law of Heaven or they will force you to submit. There is no other choice ... This is a message to you sodomites out there, if you are listening, expect to one day submit to us and submit to the law of God."

And just in case Shoebat wasn't clear on how exactly he intends to make gays submit to the law of God, he wrote a separate post once again calling for them to be put to death:

Since homosexuality is against the sacrament of marriage, which is the building block of society, then it is against the common good, and the very Faith of our civilization, and thus is an enemy to the Christian people and should be treated as sedition. Let the heretics who believe in such license read where St. Paul refers to these sodomites as “deserving of death,” and also those who “approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:32), and let them dare say that homosexuality should be allowed in a Christian society ... A small step is a great fall, and a little leaven spoils the whole batch; if we allow such wickedness to be done in incriminates [sic], then they will soon be done in great numbers. Crush the eggs of the baby serpents before they hatch. The sodomite, the atheist, the fanatic feminist, the Muslim — all such must be deemed as criminals and enemies to civilization, for they war against the Faith, promote death and hate life.

They should be told to leave their wicked ways under coercion, and if that does not work, then death and strong suppression is the only solution. We cannot allow someone the freedom to do evil, for this will only increase the presence of darkness in the society, and it will become an internal enemy ... Let the governments take up the Holy Cross, and destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8) Let it destroy the advancers of antichrist, and utterly annihilate the acolytes of the evil doctrines of Sodom. Christus vincit!

Allow us to point out once again that Shoebat is not just some fringe zealot, but was actually featured in Janet Porter's anti-gay documentary "Light Wins" along with several Republican members of Congress and GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rand Paul.

Ray Comfort To Use Kim Davis' Return To Work To Promote His Own Anti-Gay Movie

On Monday, Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis is scheduled to return to work after having been freed from jail for repeatedly refusing to allow her office to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Davis has been ordered not to interfere with the issuing of such licenses going forward, but it seems pretty clear that she has no intention of obeying that court order and so lots of media outlets are expected to be on hand to see how she responds if faced with another gay couple seeking a marriage license.

Today, Ray Comfort appeared on Bryan Fischer's radio program to announce that he intends to take advantage of the anticipated media presence next week to promote his own anti-gay film, "Audacity," by traveling to Kentucky to hand out books, t-shirts, and copies of the movie while a plane towing a massive banner flies overhead.

The media has not paid much attention to his film, Comfort complained, nor to its message to gays that God will hold them "morally accountable" and send them to Hell for their behavior and so he intends to bring his message directly to the media gathered at the Rowan County clerk's office.

Prepare For The End Times To Start Next Week ... Possibly ... But Maybe Not

For months, various Religious Right activists have been warning that some sort of calamity will strike America in September as God unleashes His judgment for abortion, and gay marriage, and general disrespect, possibly even bringing about the End Times.

These same activists, of course, have also been very careful to hedge their bets, repeatedly acknowledging that nothing at all might happen because God "doesn't have to work according to our schedule or understanding." But the feeling that some  sort of spiritually significant event is about to occur seems to be one that is widely shared among the Religious Right's End Times fanatics, such as Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries.

Markell appeared on American Family Radio's "Today's Issues" earlier this week, where she was asked whether Christians should expect the End of Days to begin next week and she declared that indeed they should ... possibly ... but maybe not ... but, still, it might be wise to be prepared just in case.

"I think because there are about 25 things converging in September," she said, "I think the question is: Could all of this be coincidence? Of the 25 — and we can't go through them all — between the Shemitah, the Jewish high holy days, the Pope's visit, and so much more, a global government, the discussion of the United Nations at the end of September, the list goes on and on and on and on."

"Having said that," she hedged, "do we go out on a limb and start predicting end of the world type things? I think we've got to be really careful with that because, remember, there had been some people who have tried the date setting throughout the last 50 years or so and then those dates don't come to pass and then Christians stand with egg on their face."

"But, on the other side of the coin," Markell then pivoted, "when you've got between 20 and 30 things converging in September ... at the very least, we need to sound a warning to be prepared."

Christians should store up food and water and money, Markell recommended, "but I don't think we should go off the deep end."

A Contrite Glenn Beck Apologizes For Calling Sarah Palin A 'Clown'

Near the beginning of his radio broadcast yesterday, Glenn Beck unloaded on Sarah Palin, calling her a "clown" and declaring that he was embarrassed that he ever supported her.  By the end of the program, Beck's fury had subsided and he began to feel remorseful that he had lost his temper and said such harsh things, but by then it was too late.

Last night, Beck sought to make amends, writing an absurdly long piece on Facebook apologizing for having called her a clown and explaining the source of their strained relationship, while also defending his position that her support for Donald Trump makes no sense:

We all have bad days and bad moments.

Today was one of mine.

I stand by all of my comments on Sarah Palin EXCEPT when I called her a clown. It was unkind, childish and wrong of me to name call.

What I should have said is this:

I don't know what she really believes. I don't think she is who I thought she was and haven't for sometime.

When I saw her interview Donald Trump on her tv show I was stunned. Not that she interviewed him, but that she agreed with him and backs him.

I have seen her speak many times about many topics and I just don't understand her. But I am sure she doesn't agree or understand me often as well.

I haven't had a relationship with Sarah since about the time of the shooting of Gabby Giffords. Nothing to do with that at all, but it was around that time that she withdrew from me and my team and it was because, as Todd told me on the phone, "we have been told who our real friends are." I was stunned. I had backed her hard in every way I knew how. At that time I really believed in her and in fact I really believed she had the ability to change the world for the better.

While I have reached out since we have not spoken in an any meaningful way since.

I don't know what they were told or by whom, but I can guess as it most likely was the same person that tried to drive a stake through my relationship with mark Levin and Sean Hannity and did for several years.

Thank God, I finally reached out to them, because I had been "told" things about them and they were the same lies that they were told about me.

Celebrity, fame and TV/radio are poison to humans I believe. At least it has been to me. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

...

 I have not reached out to Sarah for quite some time as I do not believe there is a repairable relationship but I also have never said anything publicly or privately about her that I would regret until today.

She is not a clown. Obviously.

This however is the only thing I regret saying.

I do not understand her position and love of Trump. He is clearly a progressive, not a small government constitutionalist.

He was for the bailouts, he is for the idea that the government can just take private land from someone and give it to someone else because they will pay more taxes. Shameful.

There are so many warning signs, policy wise, that the size of the list is frankly shocking.

But he is also a bully, sexist, cruel, an ego manic and narcissist in ways that makes Barack Obama seem like Saint Francis.

He is so thin skinned that he destroys anyone who crosses him. It should be noted that this is a trait held by some of the 20th centuries greatest dictators and absolutely NOT something that I find comforting in a president.

As Sarah Palin holds a unique place with the tea party, I expect more from her. Perhaps this is wrong of me. To support Trump and ignore his very disturbing policies makes you a populist at best. But I am almost alone in this it seems. At least with almost anyone in my job. Maybe they all have a personal relationship with him or I am just wrong.

As I told her once off air, "you have a great power and while I'm not deeming you Spider-Man, with that power and pulpit comes great responsibility."

What principles that the tea party is founded on is she promoting with her love of trump?

So how did I get from disagreement to "clown?"

My -- unrighteous -- anger came from her speech at the Iran rally.

I am at a point that I cannot see past the dying children at the hands of Isis, and I truly believe that we are at a point of no return with God if we don't act now to stand for His principles.

I heard her speech after Donald's speech, which his was a clown show, and I couldn't believe that this is how we are dealing with this issue.

This was wrong of me.

Who do I think I am by thinking that everyone should see this issue the same way or adopt the same approach?

It was wrong of me, but because I know she is religious - in a very real way - I again expected more from her.

So today, what you heard was a very old frustration that I have never voiced where I feel wrongly accused and judged by her and Todd which frankly is no ones business and should not have been discussed on air, at least not in the heat of a moment. That is my problem not hers.

It was Coupled with total confusion on her love affair with Donald Trump (made worse in my head by my lack of ability to grasp what 30% of small government Self proclaimed constitutionalist, values and religious people see in him.

Coupled with His speech and combining hers with his in my head,

coupled with my unwillingness to play the stupid "game" one second longer -- because I truly believe that we are at a point of choosing and the consequences are much more grave than ever before as God will not be mocked.

So, the truth is:

I don't have a relationship with her and most likely now never will. That is okay, she is not losing any sleep over this, I am sure;

We don't see eye to eye on things. That is okay but some of them are large ticket items;

I do hear her speak sometimes and I don't know what I saw in her. But, that is probably my fault because I probably projected many things that I wanted to believe she stood for.

With all of that said: none of that makes her a clown.

Saying what you mean and meaning what you say is a rough road to walk if you want to have lots of friends in
Powerful places. Especially if you are as weak in the restraint in the tongue as I am.

It may mean that I don't have a single listener left in the end but I would rather be true to myself, principles and to my God than to parties, cliques or popularity. But I never want to lose anyone because I said something cruel or untrue.

I am okay with losing friends or popularity over the truth. What I am not okay with is spouting off in anger or frustration and being a poor example to my children.

That is where I owe Sarah Palin an apology. I was unkind and inaccurate.

It is really ironic, I am the one looking for and preaching unity.

I just held an event called restoring unity. But unity on principles. We don't all have to agree but we do have to recognize the time and answer to a higher call.

In some cases it may even mean we lose an election. But I think it is high time we lose elections for what we believe and stand for. Not because we backed horses or policies that made us think we could win.

'Sarah Palin Has Become A Clown': Glenn Beck Is Now 'Embarrassed' That He Ever Supported Her

Yesterday, Glenn Beck traveled to Washington, D.C., so that he could be seen by God speaking out against the nuclear deal with Iran. Following the event, Beck was disappointed that nobody is really listening to his message and later that evening, after he appeared on CNN, he grew even more despondent that what he felt were some of the best parts of his discussion with Don Lemon were ultimately edited from the broadcast.

On his radio program today, Beck let loose on just about everything and everyone, including Sarah Palin, who also spoke at the Iran rally, calling her a clown and declaring that he is embarrassed that he ever supported her.

"I'm going to say it," Beck declared, "I don't care what Sarah Palin says any more. Sarah Palin has become a clown. I'm embarrassed that I was once for Sarah Palin. Honestly, I'm embarrassed."

"I don't know who she is any more, I don't know what she stands for," Beck continued. "I saw a clip of her talking to Donald Trump. What the hell is that? I don't even know who she is any more ... Don't care. I don't care."

Brian Brown: Gay Marriage Is 'The Supreme Lie Of The Land'

The National Organization for Marriage's Brian Brown was among the speakers at this week's rally in support of Kim Davis, where he likened her stand to the fight against slavery and compared her to Rosa Parks while declaring that gay marriage is "the supreme lie of the land."

Christians have always refused to "bow down to pagan idols," Brown declared, and Davis refused to allow her office to issue marriage licenses to gay couples because "we know in our hearts, we know in our minds, that same-sex marriage is not the supreme law of the land, it is the supreme lie of the land."

"When one person stand up and says, 'I will not be bullied, I will not comply,'" Brown continued, "that person is Kim Davis and I hope she is a hero and a message for all of us. Stand for truth, regardless of what happens. Do not comply with unjust authority!"

Hagee: Iran Deal Puts America In The 'Direct Line Of Fire To Receive The Judgment Of God'

On this week's "Hagee Hotline," John Hagee continued to issue dire warnings that America will face the wrath of God if this nation reaches any sort of nuclear deal with Iran.

"I want you to hear this verse, it's God's foreign policy statement toward Israel," Hagee declared, "'I will bless those who bless you and I will curse those who curse you.' This nuclear treaty is America's curse on the future of Israel. If our Congress does not vote this down ... we, the United States of America, are in direct line of fire to receive the judgment of God. The day America turns its back on Israel will be the day God turns his back on us."

Young Elected Officials Network Crosses 1,000 Member Threshold

This month People For the American Way Foundation’s Young Elected Officials (YEO) Network, the first and only national initiative to provide a network of support to the newest generation of progressive leaders at every level of elected office, surpassed the 1,000 member mark. Recently, hundreds of those members from across the nation gathered at the YEO Network National Convening 2015 to participate in collaborative discussions and issue-based training sessions.

The YEO Network began ten years ago as a small group of elected officials dedicated to promoting progressive values, and has since grown to over 1,000 members making a difference in local school boards, state legislatures, and the United States Congress. Past and current members of the Network include rising stars like Congressman Joaquin Castro and his brother, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro, who attended the first YEO convening a decade ago.

“The commitment and passion young elected officials bring to their offices every day proves that this 1,000 member mark is only the beginning for our network,” said Andrew Gillum, director of youth leadership programs at People For the American Way Foundation. “Ten years in, we are continuing to build and grow each day to build a stronger, more equal, more just country.”

“The YEO Network has come to symbolize the power of young, progressive leadership,” said Michael Keegan, president of People For the American Way Foundation. “Each elected official in this network is making real change in their community. But this isn’t only about the work that 1,000 young leaders are doing all across the country—it’s about the collective force of a movement that’s literally changing the face of our nation. I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together in the next ten years.”

Anti-Gay Psuedo-Historian David Barton Tapped To Run Ted Cruz's Super PAC

David Barton is a long-time Religious Right activist and Christian nation pseudo-historian whose 2012 book about Thomas Jefferson so shoddy that it was pulled from circulation by its Christian publisher. Promoting inaccurate, misleading, and downright false information has been a hallmark of Barton's career and a centerpiece of his effort to institute a virtual theocracy in America in which our nation's laws are literally based upon the Bible.

Naturally, he has now been tapped to take over the super PAC supporting Ted Cruz's presidential campaign:

David Barton, an influential Christian author and activist, is taking charge of the leading super-PAC supporting Ted Cruz.

The super-PAC, Keep the Promise PAC, is the umbrella for a group of related pro-Cruz political committees that raised $38 million in the first half of the year, more than the super-PACs supporting any other candidate with the exception of Jeb Bush.

"From the outset, the Keep the Promise PACs made their mission to provide a voice for the millions of courageous conservatives who are looking to change the direction of the country," Keep the Promise PAC said in a statement today. "Barton's involvement is an important step signaling that the effort will not be run by a D.C. consultant but by a grassroots activist."

A long-time vice-chairman of the Texas Republican Party, where he is based, Barton is notorious for exaggerating his own accomplishments and for regularly making outrageous statements such as his assertions that the Founding Fathers opposed the teaching of evolution, that the Bible opposes Net Neutrality, and that Jesus opposes the minimum wage.

He believes that demons control the government and is also a Second Amendment radical who insists that there should literally be no limits on what sort of weapons individuals can own, including tanks, jet fighters, or nuclear weapons.

But most of all, Barton is vehemently anti-gay, claiming that schools are forcing students to be gay and that the government should regulate gay sex. Recently, he has been telling audiences that the Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage will force all student athletes to share the same locker rooms and churches to hire pedophiles to run their nurseries while requiring the military to protect those who engage in bestiality.

Barton also believes that homosexuality is "reprehensible and disgusting" and "very repugnant" and that the government can outlaw it. He has also repeatedly asserted that a cure for AIDS will never be found because the disease is God's punishment for sin:

And now he has been placed in charge of coordinating millions of dollars to help elect Ted Cruz to be the next president.

Beck: This Is The Week America Seals Its Fate And Becomes 'An Enemy Of God'

Glenn Beck is in Washington, D.C., today to speak at a rally in opposition to the Iran nuclear deal and even though he knows the deal cannot be defeated, he is intent on speaking so that God will see him standing against it.

Beck has said that his message will be so full of dire prophetic warnings that it will sound like incomprehensible rambling to anyone listening, but God and His people will understand exactly what he is saying. He kicked things off last night on his television program with a tearful monologue warning his audience that this week will be the time when America finally seals its fate because "we are going to become an enemy of God."

"We are not hopeless because He is our hope," an emotional Beck declared, "but we have dealt with Him falsely and He is going to withdraw his protection and it is going to be stunning when it happens."

"This is it. I'm telling you this is the last call," he continued, standing in front of his chalkboard as he warned that within a year, America will be so divided that we literally will not even be able to understand one another. "I am telling you, please, Dear God, listen to me, please. Please! We are here. This is the moment that historians will look back and say, 'They would have survived, but they chose death instead.'"

"Please, grab your children, grab your friends," he warned, "and you get them in the boat right now and you stand, you declare, even in your own room by yourself, you stand up and you say the words out loud, 'Lord, I choose life. I reject what is happening in my own country, they do not speak for me.' And then you get down on your knees and you beg Him for protection because He can no longer be our God. He has to withdraw ... We're going to feel the full ramifications of what it feels like to choose death."

Barton: Jailing Kim Davis Violates The Constitution's Prohibition On 'Ex Post Facto' Laws

David Barton took to his Facebook page yesterday to pen a defense of Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis and her refusal to allow her office to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, asserting that requiring her to do so violates the Constitution's prohibition on ex post facto laws.

Ex post facto refers "to a criminal law that applies retroactively, thereby criminalizing conduct that was legal when originally performed," and Barton, like others, bizarrely argues that since gay marriage was not legal nationwide when Davis ran for her county clerk position, requiring her to issue gay marriage licenses now is unconstitutional:

The third major criticism of Davis is that she is she knew what she was getting into and therefore should never have run for office. But this is a factually inaccurate statement. Davis ran for office in 2014; the Court issued its personal opinion in 2015 – a year after she was in office. She did not know that she was going to be asked to implement a federal policy that no American in the history of the Constitution had ever before been asked to enforce: issue a license for a homosexual marriage. She is now being punished for refusing to do something that was not part of her job description when she took office. In fact, her punishment smacks of an “ex post facto” policy. As even the very progressive Wikipedia explains, “An ex post facto law is a law that retroactively changes the legal consequences (or status) of actions that were committed, or relationships that existed, before the enactment of the law.” The Constitution explicitly prohibits this in Article I, Section 9, Paragraph 3, yet this is dangerously close to, if not exactly what is happening to Davis – except that it is not a law under which she is being jailed but rather the decree of a judge; but the results are the same.

Barton's understanding of ex post facto laws is laughable and therefore his entire argument is ludicrous since Davis is not being punished retroactively for something that was legal at the time she did it, but is rather being held in contempt of court for violating a judge's orders to stop preventing her office from issuing licenses to same-sex couples in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision.

Davis is currently breaking the law and that is why she is facing legal troubles.

'Lock Me Up': Mike Huckabee Volunteers To Go To Jail On Kim Davis' Behalf

Today, GOP presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee joined a handful of hardcore anti-gay activists for a rally in support of Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis, who has become a Religious Right hero for briefly going to jail rather than allow her office to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

At the end of his remarks today, Huckabee sanctimoniously declared that he is willing to spend years in jail on Davis' behalf in opposition to the legalization of gay marriage.

"I have a message for the judge," Huckabee proclaimed, "and I say this with all my heart: If this judge believes that somebody must be put in jail because a person is willing to stand on the biblical definition of marriage ... Let Kim go, but if you have to put someone in jail, I volunteer to go. Let me go. Lock me up if you think that's how freedom is best served."

"I am willing to spend the next eight years in the White House leading this country," he thundered, "but I want you to know, I'm willing to spend the next eight years in jail but I'm not willing to spend one day under the tyranny of people who believe they can take our freedom and conscience away!"

Davis may indeed soon be headed back to jail as her lawyer, Mat Staver, said that she will continue to break the law in defiance of court orders when she returns to work later this week.

Staver: Requiring Kim Davis To Do Her Job Is Like Forcing Her 'To Grant A License To Sodomize Children'

Mat Staver, the Liberty Counsel attorney who is representing Kentucky clerk Kim Davis during her ongoing refusal to issue same-sex marriage licenses, appeared on the "WallBuilders Live" radio program today, where he said that requiring Davis to issue such marriage licenses is like requiring her to provide licenses to "sodomize children."

"A clerk provides licenses to do something," Staver explained. "A license to operate a motor vehicle on the road, a license to build a particular facility or a license to do this or a license to do that or a license to operate a business. So that person is licensing someone to do something and in this case, they're licensing what? They're licensing something that is directly contrary to the core of their religious convictions, to engage in sinful activity among same-sex relations and sanction something that is contrary to the Scriptures and that is marriage of two people of the same sex."

"To force someone like that to give a license for something that will legalize, that will put a stamp of approval on something that is absolute rebellion against God, sinful, then that is a direct collision of unprecedented magnitude," he continued, saying that requiring Davis to do her job is like requiring her "to grant a license to engage in pornography, to grant a license to sodomize children or something of that nature."

'We're The Government': Jerry Boykin Says Our Government Was Founded To Be Run By Christians

The Family Research Council's Jerry Boykin joined Rick Joyner for a "special update" on Sunday where Boykin asserted that Christians must be involved in politics because the Constitution came directly out of the Bible and the Founding Fathers created our system of government to be run by Christians.

Insisting that the separation of church and state is a myth, Boykin declared that the church was primarily responsible for the success of the American Revolution and as well as the abolition of slavery and suggested that Christians who refuse to get involved in politics are cowards.

"You don't have the courage to stand for what you believe in," Boykin said, "because the church has always been a dominant factor in the politics of America and the 56 men who signed that document were men of faith. When they came back and wrote that Constitution, they wrote that Constitution and derived all of the principles out of that Constitution out of the Bible. So when you hold up a Bible, you need to hold up the Constitution right next to it and say, 'This Constitution came from this Bible and every freedom that's given in this Constitution came from the Bible.'"

"When Christians say we shouldn't be involved in politics, you've got to be kidding me," he continue. "We're the government."
