Glenn Beck To GOP Hopefuls: 'I Don't Think You Have A Chance' Of Winning Without Coming On My Show

Last year, Glenn Beck was telling everyone who would listen that he hated politics and was tired of talking about it, so he wasn't going to waste his life anymore and was, instead, going to change his direction completely.

But that was last year.  So far this year, it feels to us as if Beck has spent show after show talking about almost nothing but politics, especially the question of who will be the GOP's presidential nominee in 2016. To that end, Beck's network has started taking a monthly poll of whom Beck's followers want to see win the nomination and today they released the results of second monthly poll, which finds Ted Cruz and Scott Walker taking the top spots.

While discussing the results on his radio show today, Beck noted that lots of the candidates have appeared on his program in the past, with the exception of Walker. Walker's apparent reluctance to come on Beck's show, Beck warned, could spell disaster for Walker's presidential aspirations because "I don't think you have a chance" of winning without doing so.

When Beck asked co-host Stu Burguiere if, were he running for president, he would agree to appear on Beck's show, Burguiere noted that his campaign advisers would probably recommend against it but that, as a co-host of the show, he believes that "if you could get this audience behind you, you have a strong chance."

"I don't think you have a chance without it," Beck responded. "I just don't think you can get the Tea Party to be excited. If you're not going to actually address them where they live - and I'm not just saying our audience, I mean the people like us - if you don't come and court the audience where they live, we won't believe you."

Refusing to appear on Beck's show, he said, "shows something about your courage":

PFAW Foundation and Allies Submit Brief to Supreme Court in Support of Marriage Equality

On Friday PFAW Foundation joined the Anti-Defamation League and an expansive coalition of religious and civil rights organizations in submitting an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to rule state-level marriage bans unconstitutional in the four marriage cases before them this term. One specific religious conception of marriage, the signers argue, should not define our nation’s laws on it.

The brief outlines instances in our country’s history in which discriminatory laws have been justified on the grounds of “religious and moral disapproval,” from laws supporting slavery to segregation to discrimination against women. But, the signers note, the Supreme Court has rejected these types of arguments over and over – and should again with regard to the marriage bans.

The brief also takes apart the “religious liberty” arguments of those opposing marriage equality, noting that overturning the bans will not threaten freedom of religion since religious groups will still be able to define what marriage means in their tradition:

[C]ontrary to the arguments of some who defend the marriage bans, invalidating the bans will not jeopardize religious liberty. As an initial matter, the cases before this Court concern whether same-sex couples are entitled to the benefits of civil marriage. Religious groups will remain free, as they always have been, to choose how to define religious marriage and which marriages to solemnize…. Religious liberty should serve as a shield, not as a sword to discriminate against members of a disadvantaged minority group.

This amicus brief was one of a stunning array of briefs filed in the Supreme Court last week in favor of marriage equality, including briefs signed by more than 2,000 clergy; 200 police officers, EMTs, and firefighters; 400 companies, including  forty of the nation’s largest corporations; more than 200 mayors; and more than 300 conservative leaders.

Lively: America Will Face 'Calamity And Judgment' If Gay Marriage Is Legalized

On Friday, rabidly anti-gay activist Scott Lively joined Bryan Fischer in-studio for several segments, where the two argued that homosexuality is worse than murder and genocide and that acceptance of gay marriage is "a harbinger of wrath of God."

In a later segment, Lively warned that while other nations may have already legalized gay marriage, it will be different when America does so because "we're the only nation established on the Bible." As such, America will face a massive "calamity" and wholesale collapse of our national infrastructure if gay marriage ever becomes legalized throughout the country, he said.

"When the United States, in its official policy, establishes homosexual sodomy as a basis for marriage under the Constitution," Lively warned, "that's a whole new ballgame and I'm predicting that we're going to see some kind of calamity and judgement is going to occur ... We're going to suffer the consequences of this and we're going to see a rapid meltdown of the infrastructure of the country, especially anything related to the Christian infrastructure of America."

"When they pass this, if God doesn't intervene, they're going to come out of the gate," he continued, "the entire leftist block is going to declare complete victory for their entire agenda and they're going to shift to the last part of their stage of their conquest, which is punishing dissenters. You haven't seen anything yet":

'Coach' Dave Daubenmire: Bar People Who Believe In Evolution From Sitting On Creationist's Jury

Kent Hovind is a right-wing folk hero known as "Dr. Dino" from his days running Dinosaur Adventure Land, a young earth creationist theme park in Florida, who has spent nearly the last decade in prison for refusing to pay federal income tax on the grounds that all of the money generated by his theme park belonged to God.

With his 10-year prison sentence set to come to an end soon, Hovind now finds himself facing even more legal troubles stemming from his alleged efforts to illegally prevent the government from selling off properties seized from him in the original tax case.

"Coach" Dave Daubenmire has long been one of Hovind's most vocal defenders and he has posted several videos in recent days claiming that the government is persecuting Hovind simply for being a Christian, including one today in which he argued that it is unconstitutional for Hovind to be judged by a jury that does not share his particular Christian worldview and belief system.

Daubenmire said that any potential juror who believes in evolution ought to be barred from sitting on Hovind's jury because that would mean that Hovind would not be judged by a "jury of his peers."

"Wouldn't a jury of Kent Hovind's peers be those who believe the same way that he does?" Daubenmire asked. "Wouldn't it be germane that if you put Kent Hovind on trial, that you would have people on the trial who think like he thinks so that they could, in fact, judge the merits of the case rather than their own biases about creationism or the Bible or Christians or whatever?"

To further demonstrate the rock-solid logic of his position, Daubenmire said "it would be like putting a drug dealer on trial [and] you find somebody on the jury who is totally, one hundred per cent against any type of drugs and thinks drug dealers should be prosecuted and thrown in jail."

"That would not be a jury of peers of that drug dealer":

Lively: Homosexuality Is 'Worse Than Murder And Worse Than Genocide'

Last month, rabidly anti-gay activist Scott Lively warned that if the Supreme Court strikes down state bans on same-sex marriage, it could lead to the rise of the Antichrist by the end of the year.

Naturally, Bryan Fischer decided to have Lively join him in-studio for his radio program today so that he could discuss his warning to America as well as promote the upcoming prayer vigil that he will be holding outside of the Supreme Court.

Lively told Fischer that America is about to cross "a line with God that hasn't occurred in the entire history of the world since Noah's flood," which he once again asserted was brought about by the celebration of "homosexual marriage."

"The final straw for God was when they started celebrating and engaging in homosexual and bestial marriages," he said.

Lively went on to declare that homosexuality is "the most egregious form of rebellion against God" and is a sin that is "worse than murder and worse then genocide."

"It's not just another sin," he continued. "It's really a harbinger of the judgment of God ... The celebration by the society [of homosexuality] is a harbinger of the wrath of God":

Glenn Beck Says Ben Carson's Prison Sex Comment Is 'The Dumbest Thing I've Ever Heard'

Glenn Beck has been traveling for the past few days and away from his radio studio, meaning that his daily radio program has been audio-only for most of the week.  On today's broadcast, Beck addressed Ben Carson's recent statement that prison sex proves that homosexuality is a choice and declared that Carson's possible presidential campaign is now over because his statement was "the dumbest thing I've ever heard."

"Goodbye to his presidential career," Beck said. "It's over. It's over. There is no way to recover from that. That just sounds like a lunatic ... That is just a ridiculous statement on a million fronts. A ridiculous statement."

"It's not just that he didn't see [the question] coming," Beck continued. "It's that he just thought that was a good answer. That was good enough for him. Just [imagine] I'm at a cocktail party and I'm talking to a friend and they say 'well yeah, you know, you go to prison and you're straight, you get out and you're gay,' don't you look at your friend — I don't care if he's the guy who works at the 7-Eleven and he's not running for president ever — don't you go, 'That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard'?"

Theodore Shoebat Says ISIS Is A Gay Cult And 'Fags' Want To Molest Children

Theodore Shoebat is the sort of viciously anti-gay activist who openly calls for gays to be put to death and who recently became something of a Religious Right hero for his unsuccessful effort to find a bakery that would make a cake for him featuring anti-gay messages.

Earlier this week, Shoebat posted a new article on his website titled "Islam is a homosexual cult, that wants to bring the world into a homosexual pagan empire," which featured a video in which he argued that ISIS is run by gays while asserting that a nondiscrimination ordinance recently defeated in Charlotte, North Carolina, was being pushed by "fags" who want to molest children.

"I love it when people tell me, 'I don't see gay people beheading others,'" Shoebat said, affecting a stereotypical gay voice. "'Why are you fighting against gay people? I don't see gays decapitating people.' Ummm, yeah, there are gay people beheading others. It's something called ISIS. ISIS consists of many homosexuals. Some of their top leaders are homosexual."

Shoebat eventually turned his attention to the proposed anti-discrimination ordinance in Charlotte, which he claimed was designed to allow gay men to gain access to women's restroom so they could molest young boys.

"According to this new bill that these fags want to pass, you will be allowed to go into the woman's bathroom," he said. "The homosexuals want to go into a woman's bathroom so they can molest little boys. That's what this is about. They want to molest children. They want to do so peeping tom stuff on women in the bathroom. They want to be perverts ... The bottom line is that this is nothing but another incremental step to bring the civilized world back to pederasty [and] institutionalized pedophilia."

Why Shoebat thinks that gay men would be seeking access the women's restroom in order to have access to young boys and spy on women is anybody's guess.

From Selma to Shelby County to Ferguson

This op-ed was originally published at The Huffington Post.

Fifty years ago in Alabama hundreds of peaceful marchers calling for voting rights were violently attacked by state police. Fifty years later Americans from all walks of life are expected to gather this weekend to mark the anniversary of what became known as Bloody Sunday and embrace the spirit for courage, sacrifice and justice of those women and men who marched, were beaten and no doubt underestimated the impact that their bruises would have on future generations.

The events of that day and the tense days and weeks that followed shocked our national consciousness and became a catalyst for passage of what some call the "crown jewel" of the civil rights movement, the 1965 Voting Rights Act. It's a law that held bipartisan support and helped protect countless Americans from discrimination at the ballot box for almost five decades.

Every year since that bloody day we have honored those 600-plus marchers who put their lives on the line in pursuit of basic democratic rights and racial justice. But this year, with a passion as never before, we must do more than just give lip service. This time marchers of today must clearly connect with the purpose in the pain that started in prayer on a Sunday morning and ended on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, with blood and tears in the afternoon. Why? Because as John Legend so eloquently put it last week, "Selma is now."

The shadow of Bloody Sunday is there, nearly two years after a core provision of the Voting Rights Act was gutted by the Supreme Court in the Shelby County case, as we practice patience for Congress to restore and strengthen what was taken away. When our leaders say that they honor those who refused to turn around, will they also commit to restoring the kinds of voting protections that they were marching for?

Today, 40 bills to restrict voting rights have been introduced in states across the country, from voter ID legislation to proposals reducing access to absentee ballots to bills that would make it more difficult for those with past criminal convictions to vote. When our leaders say they honor those who were beaten and bruised with billy clubs 50 years ago, will they also commit to voting against proposed laws that would make it harder for all people to have an equal voice in our democracy? Will they commit to confirming the highly qualified Loretta Lynch, a woman with a strong commitment to civil rights, to lead -- as the first female African American -- the Justice Department in effectively monitoring and enforcing the voting rights laws we already have and those yet to come?

Today, African Americans and Latinos, especially males, endure being routinely profiled, targeted, and attacked by the police. The report released this week from the Department of Justice about policing in Ferguson, Missouri, revealed that 93 percent of arrests were of African Americans, though they make up only 67 percent of the city's population. It showed and confirmed that African Americans in Ferguson were disproportionately likely to have force used against them by the police. When our leaders say they honor those who were hospitalized for peaceful protest 50 years ago, will they also commit to fighting against discrimination and violence at the hands of those meant to serve and protect our communities?

Selma is now, and the march continues. Selma needed protection for voting rights then, and Selma needs protection for voting rights now. Many civil rights leaders, past and present, and even future leaders, will be in Selma this weekend. But thousands of others who can't be there in person will not be excluded from being a part of a new march. Men and women will with great intent make sure every registered voter gets to the polls to vote in every election, will minister with an activist heart to their neighborhoods when violence upends daily life, will use social media as a tool to motivate participation in work aimed at ending all forms of discrimination in the name of religion, and will organize their communities in active opposition when yet another bill is introduced to undermine, restrict, or deny basic civil and human rights.

On the evening of that Sunday, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. informed the media that ministers would march and called for clergy from around the country to join them. He said, "The people of Selma will struggle on for the soul of America, but it is fitting that all Americans help to bear the burden. ... In this way all America will testify to the fact that the struggle in Selma is for the survival of democracy everywhere in our land."

I was not there then, but today as with every day, especially because of the Shelby Counties and the Fergusons, I give thanks and will not forget that struggle. On March 7, 1965, the world watched as nonviolent mothers, fathers, students, workers, faith leaders were beaten, tear gassed and hospitalized. On March 7, 2015, let the world watch as this next generation genuinely honors those who had the courage to take a stand that Bloody Sunday "for the survival of democracy." How? By registering, advocating, teaching, speaking up, marching and continuing their work in pursuit of voting rights, freedom, and justice as if our unseen bruises, our lives, our souls depend on it.

Fischer: Ben Carson 'May Have Done Fatal Damage To His Campaign' By Apologizing For Anti-Gay Remarks

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer spent two segments heaping praise upon Ben Carson for his statement that prison sex proves that homosexuality is a choice. But that was before Carson apologized for his remarks and declared that he was simply not going to discuss the issue of gay rights any more.

Needless to say, Carson's retreat is not sitting well with Fischer, who spent two segments of his program today criticizing Carson for his refusal to defend his statement and saying that he may have fatally offended his base with his apology.

"Dr. Carson seems to be not considering the possibility that some people could be offended because he apologized," Fischer said. "They're disappointed in him because he apologized."

He went on to criticize Carson for listening "to the wrong people ... instead of worry about what the base thinks about what they have done and what they have said."

"He may have done fatal damage to his campaign with his apology last night," Fischer said. "The bottom line is that on homosexuality and maybe on everything else, Ben Carson needs to decide right now whether he is going to listen to God or his handlers. His career is in the balance":

Barber: People Who Support Reproductive Choice 'Are Modern-Day Nazis'

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Mat Staver and Matt Barber praised an anti-choice effort to outlaw a specific abortion procedure in Kansas by defining it as a "dismemberment abortion," with Barber declaring that anyone who supports reproductive choice is a "modern-day Nazi."

"There are very few things you can directly compare to Nazi Germany and the Holocaust," he said. "This is one of them. Modern-day pro-aborts, pro-abortionists who support this and other gruesome procedures are the modern-day equivalent — if they are doing it, they are the Nazis, and if they're supporting it, they're the equivalent of the German people who looked the other way, allowed it to happen, even rationalized it in their mind. This is as black and white, it is as cut and dry ... and they use the same tactics. They dehumanize these little people just like the Nazis dehumanized the Jews so that it would blunt the impact of what they're actually doing; murdering them, torturing them. Pro-aborts are modern-day Nazis":

Presumably this includes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whom Barber hailed as the "leader of the free world," but whose government approved public funding for abortions.​

Pat Robertson Urges Parents Not To Attend Their Gay Child's Wedding

On today's "700 Club," Pat Robertson took a question from a viewer who sought his advice on whether she and her husband should attend their gay child's upcoming wedding, which Robertson predictably urged them not to do.

The viewer said that while one parent was adamant about not attending "because it's against the Lord's plan," the other felt that they should attend in order to show support and love for their child.  In the past, Roberson has been very clear that Christians should not attend gay weddings and he repeated that advice today.

"You don't agree with it. You've got to stand there and be a witness to it," Robertson said. "By your attendance at the ceremony, you are agreeing with it ... I just wouldn't go. I would tell your child, 'I love you but I cannot condone this. We will always love you but I don't condone this activity.'"

Robertson urged the parents to be unified in opposition and not to allow the parent who wished to attend the wedding to do so "because that indicates that [your child's] conduct is splitting your marriage."

"Be in unity," Robertson said, "and I would say don't go":

Bryan Fischer Demands That Every GOP Candidate Be Asked If Being Gay Is A Choice

Bryan Fischer was so enamored with Ben Carson's statement that prison sex proves that homosexuality is a choice that he spent two segments on his radio program today heaping praise upon Carson and defending his statement.

In fact, Fischer was so impressed with Carson's statement that he declared that Carson has now set "the benchmark for the other Republican candidates" and called for every other possible GOP candidate to be asked the same question so that they are all forced to state for the record whether they believe that being gay is a choice.

"I hope they are asked this question," Fischer said. "I want every single Republican candidate on record: Do you think that homosexual conduct is a choice? I want every GOP presidential candidate to be asked that question and to be put on record. Do you believe that homosexuality is a choice? What is your answer?"

Chuck Pierce's Prayer Effort Got Sam Brownback Re-Elected

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has had deep ties to the modern day "prophets" and "apostles" within the New Apostolic Reformation going back to his days in the United States Senate. So deep are Brownback's ties to NAR that he actually lived with NAR leader Lou Engle for several months and his ties to the movement even became an issue when he was first running for governor back in 2010.

As governor, Brownback has maintained his ties to NAR and its leaders and on a recent episode of "God Knows," the program hosted by "respected prophet" Cindy Jacobs and her husband Mike, top NAR leader Chuck Pierce revealed that it was the prayers of their movement that helped Brownback win re-election last year.

Without ever mentioning Brownback's name, Pierce and Jacobs discussed their "good friend who was running for governor ... in Kansas," and revealed that God had told Pierce to go to Kansas in order to pray for him and salvage his struggling campaign.

Pierce, the self-proclaimed prophetic apostle who claims his prayers are so powerful that they caused earthquakes and captured Saddam Hussein, said that this candidate had called him and after the call, God told Pierce that "if you'll go there and draw my people together in that state and worship ... I will shift the environment of that entire election."

Pierce then organized various prayer events in the state, several of which featured the participation of Brownback himself, and saved Brownback's campaign.

"As a matter of fact, it's called The Lazarus Election," Pierce said, "because there was no way, they had assumed that thing was dead. That night of worship, the prophetic that came down from Heaven shifted and turned around that whole situation into a triumph like never before":

YP4 Leads Trainings at “Take Root” Reproductive Justice Conference in Oklahoma

Last week, Young People For (YP4) Director Joy Lawson, YP4 Fellowship Associate Vidushani Jayalal, and current YP4 Fellow Alyssah Roth of El Paso, TX, served as trainers during the pre-conference of the fifth annual “Take Root” reproductive justice conference in Norman, OK.

“Take Root” focuses on sharing the unique perspectives, experiences, and lessons learned from organizing around reproductive justice in conservative states. This year, YP4 developed and led the pre-conference to engage “Take Root” participants on guiding principles for social justice organizing. Participants took part in workshops and conversations on values-centered organizing, navigating ideologies in the reproductive justice movement, and more.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Additionally, several YP4 Fellows and alumni participated in the conference and led workshops and panels related to building access to the reproductive justice movement in under-resourced areas.  After the workshops, many of the participants reflected that the trainings gave them “a vision of what they wanted to accomplish and what the process might look like.”

YP4 is a year-long leadership development program that helps a diverse set of young leaders turn their ideals into actions and create lasting change on their campuses and in their communities. YP4 develops Fellows’ leadership capacity and strategic thinking through a capstone project — the Blueprint for Social Justice — and offers opportunities to connect with others creating change across the country.

Gohmert: 'We Have Put Into Place Leaders Who May Bring Down Judgment On The United States'

Following Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress yesterday, Rep. Louie Gohmert called into the "Point of View" radio program to discuss the Israeli Prime Minister's remarks. During the discussion, the Texas Congressman alleged that the Obama administration told the Nigerian government that the U.S. will not assist in the fight against the terrorist organization Boko Haram until Nigeria legalizes gay marriage.

"I don't know if you saw this story," Gohmert said, "but it was reported from Nigeria that this administration said unless you change your law to allow same-sex marriage, then we're not going to help you against the radical Islamist Boko Haram, which is killing Christians, having young girls raped and sold into sex slavery."

The "reports" that Gohmert mentioned seem to have come from right-wing outlets such as WorldNetDaily and The Gateway Pundit, so obviously they are very reliable.

Gohmert then went on to warn that God will punish America for "turning its back on Christians and Jews around the world."

"I am very afraid since I know," he said, "that the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. It doesn't matter how many people in America are faithful followers, we have put into place leaders who may bring down judgment on the United States if we don't start helping the good guys";

Beck: My 'Restoring Honor' Speech Could Have Saved The Nation 'If America Would Have Listened To It'

After comparing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress this morning to the biblical book of Esther, Glenn Beck declared on his radio program today that Netanyahu's speech was the most important one given since the one that Beck delivered at his "Restoring Honor" event on the National Mall back in 2010.

"Have you ever seen a speech that hasn't been given get this much attention?" Beck asked. "The last speech I saw get this much attention before it was given was 8/28."

Beck went on to claim that his 8/28 speech would have changed the course of the world "if America would have listened to it."

Sadly, the nation didn't listen, Beck said, but he knows that he still accomplished God's "desired outcome."

"I do believe it did change the course with many people," Beck said. "It had its desired outcome, I believe, for the Lord":

Klingenschmitt: Murder Of North Carolina Muslim Students Was An Anti-Christian Hate Crime

Last month, three young Muslims students were murdered in an apartment in North Carolina, in a crime allegedly stemming from a long-simmering dispute over parking. The man accused of committing the murders was reportedly an atheist who frequently posted anti-religious messages on his Facebook page.

Among the things he had posted on his Facebook page was an image asserting that despite their opposition to one another, "radical Christians" and "radical Muslims" actually hold similar ideological positions on a wide array of issues ... and because of that, Colorado state representative Gordon Klingenschmitt is convinced that these three Muslims were really killed "because they were like Christians."

Taking the Religious Right's persecution complex to its absurd conclusion, Klingenschmitt cited this particular Facebook post on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today as proof that this "radical left-wing atheist who is going around killing people of faith ... killed these Muslims because they think like Christians":

Barber: Gay Marriage Will Be 'The Sledgehammer Used To Crush The Church'

On a recent episode of Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Mat Staver and Matt Barber discussed the case of a Washington state florist who is facing fines for refusing to sell flowers to a same-sex couple for their wedding, which they used to warn that if the Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage this year, it will lead to widespread Christian persecution and the destruction of the Christian church in America.

Barber declared that the push for gay marriage was never about equality but rather "about forcing Christians against their will to celebrate deviant homosexual behavior."

"This was about persecuting Christians," he said, "not about marriage equality."

Staver readily agreed, saying that gay marriage is "an oxymoron" because "same-sex relationships are harmful, they're sinful, they're contrary to the Scriptures, they're contrary to the natural created order," and warning that gay activists are intent on persecuting Christians all over America, which promoted Barber to issue a dire warning.

"If, God forbid ... the Supreme Court somehow defines and manufactures a constitutional so-called right to sodomy-based marriage this summer, in June, if they do that then the floodgates will be open," Barber said. "There will be Christian persecution widespread across the United States and the so-called gay marriage agenda will be the sledgehammer used to crush the church and to crush religious liberty and the crush individual Christians, their finances, to ruin them. That's what this agenda was always about and that's what we will see if the Supreme Court goes the wrong way in June."

Staver closed by declaring that if the Supreme Court does rule in favor of gay marriage, then Christians must treat the ruling as illegitimate and ignore it:

David Barton: The Bible Says There Will Never Be A Vaccine For HIV Because AIDS Is The Penalty For Homosexuality

In the second in a series of presentations that he recently made at Charis Bible College in Colorado, right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton reiterated his belief that God will never allow a cure or vaccine for AIDS to be discovered because the disease is divine punishment for homosexuality.

Citing Romans 1, which declares that "men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved," Barton said that God will never allow a cure to be found for AIDS because that would eliminate the "penalty" that is due for engaging in such behavior.

"Anything the Bible says is right, there is scientific basis for it now," Barton said. "The federal government, in the last several years, has spent tens of billions of dollars looking for a vaccine for AIDS and I don't think they will ever find a vaccine for HIV/AIDS. And I say that based on a particular Bible verse ... Notice this, homosexuals receive in their bodies the penalty due them. The Bible says if you engage in homosexuality, your body will do things that will penalize you. So if you can have a vaccine for AIDS, then you're keeping your body from penalizing you. I don't think they'll ever find a vaccine for AIDS":

UPDATE: Warren Throckmorton took a look at the scientific evidence that Barton subsequently cited as "proof" of this point and discovered that Barton completely misrepresented the facts.

Dave Daubenmire Blames Kardashian Family's 'Debauchery' For Bruce Jenner's Transition

"Coach" Dave Daubenmire is scandalized by Bruce Jenner's reported transition, declaring on his "News With Views" program today that Jenner has managed to go from the cover of the Wheaties box "to the cover of Froot Loops" in one generation.

And Daubenmire is pretty sure that Jenner's witnessing of the "debauchery" of the Kardashian family has something to do with it.

"What is going on in America?" he asked. "Bruce Jenner was watching as a step-dad at this debauchery going on in the Kardashian house and something has happened to Bruce Jenner that now he is transforming, I'm telling you the truth, from a man — not just a man, a man on the Wheaties box, the world's greatest athlete — to some pathetic transgendered I don't know what you call 'em."

"From Wheaties to Froot Loops," Daubenmire lamented. "Folks, what's going on in America?"
