Robertson: 'Demonic' Dungeons & Dragons 'Literally Destroyed People's Lives'

Pat Robertson knows that demonic spirits are behind everything from homosexuality and Halloween to karate and secondhand sweaters, and so it came as no surprise today when he warned 700 Club viewers that Dungeons & Dragons is a “demonic” game.

In response to a question regarding whether it is ok to “enjoy video games that have magic in them,” Robertson warned that such games are part of the “occult” and urged the questioner to “flee from evil.” He said that is especially the case when it comes to Dungeons & Dragons, which has “literally destroyed people’s lives.”

'Coach' Dave Daubenmire: There Should Be No Public 'Acceptance of Sinful Private Behavior'

Recently, Peter LaBarbera was interviewed by "Coach" Dave Daubenmire of Pass the Salt Ministries for his program NewsWithViews.tv, which reminded us that we haven't written about Coach Daubenmire for several years. But that is probably about to change because, in the interim, Coach has begun regularly posting informative videos on his YouTube page with exciting titles like "Embrace The Hate!" and "Homosexual Sodomy Will Never Be Lawful" in which he calls for the criminalization of homosexuality sodomy because no society can survive once it engages in "acceptance of private sinful behavior" ... and somehow this is all related to Griswold v Connecticut, George Washington, Don't Ask, Don't Tell, women in the military, the Fourteenth Amendment, and the concept of stare decisis:

Scarborough: Christians Will Be Persecuted and Imprisoned if SCOTUS Legalizes Gay Marriage

Last week's Tea Party Unity call ended with host Rick Scarborough announcing his hope that God will confuse the minds of the Supreme Court justices so that they will "punt" on the Proposition 8 and Defense of Marriage Act cases they will soon be deciding in order to give America one last chance to get "our politics right" before God's judgment rains down on us.

Saying that homosexuality and abortion are "the twin towers of evil," Scarborough declared that homosexuality is actually far more dangerous before warning that it will only be a matter of time before pastors are rounded up and imprisoned:

The twin towers of evil in America, I believe are abortion on demand and the homosexual movement ... I believe that of the two great sins of our country, the one that's the most grievous is this whole more toward the legalization of homosexuality.

In 2002, as you recall, in Lawrence v Texas the Supreme Court struck down the prohibitions in the state of Texas and applied it across the land that no longer could the citizenry declare that sodomy was a sin. You can take a position however you like on that but that law was based on a moral fabric in the country, a belief in biblical rights and wrongs. The reason I said at the time that that was a more dangerous precedent than even Roe v Wade is because of the following: I believe, as a Christian and as a pastor,  that as horrible as abortion is - and there's just no way to describe the horror of abortion - the only ray of sunshine is that at least the baby that was aborted, which is a living human being, suddenly finds itself in heaven. 

But with sodomy, it's a different sin altogether because what you do is you allow children now to be adopted into these families.  Those children are raised in the normalization of homosexuality; if they live like that and die like that and you have a biblical understanding you find yourself with children that are basically rejecting biblical truth and that has eternal implications.

Now I am fully aware that the Left monitors our calls and I have no doubt that I likely will be the subject of derision for saying something like this, but I'm praying at best God will confuse the minds of our Supreme Court that they'll simply, as Bob alluded, punt on the issue of standing and give you and I a little more time to start getting our politics right.

...

The very first thing Obama did when he got elected president was pass hate crimes legislation inclusive of sexual orientation.  The laws are now on the books to prosecute preachers who have the audacity to say in public what I just said from their pulpits.

You will find them armed with this Supreme Court ruling, if its adverse, then rounding up anyone who says otherwise and prosecuting, perhaps with fines at first but finally with jail and imprisonment.  And the laws are now, at least the foundation of laws through hate crimes legislation is in place to bring fill-scale persecution on those of us who stand for truth.

Barton: Instead of Passing Obamacare, Congress Should Have Called on People 'to be More Religious'

On "WallBuilders Live" today, Rick Green and David Barton interviewed Frank Newport, author of the book "God Is Alive and Well: The Future of Religion in America."

Following the discussion, Barton commented that the problem in America today is that while the vast majority of people consider themselves to be Christians, not enough are reading the Bible regularly and applying it to their daily lives.

After comparing the Bible to an owner's manual for a car, Barton said that "the more religious you are, the better your health is" and suggested that instead of passing health care reform legislation, Congress should have passed legislation "calling on people to be more religious":

Part of the problem we have is we've not shown then applicability. It's like saying "why don't you sit down and read the owner's manual for your car."  They say "no way, if I need something, I'll go there and get it" and so we wait until we think there's a need but actually, if you read it ahead of time, you'll find there's a ton of stuff that applies before you get there. You'll find when you read it that there's a whole lot more features on your car than you knew about that helped you maximize ... and so we have that same kind of mental hurdle to get over.  People think, man, if I get in a crisis, I'll go get this and read it.  No, no, no, read it before you get in a crisis because it is going to apply to stuff you don't even imagine right now and it will elevate and benefit your life.

And by the way, I thought it was really cool that he pointed out that the more religious your are, the better your health is. Now, instead of passing Obamacare, why didn't we pass a bill calling on people to be more religious and therefore help health over all?

That's the benefits of using God's word and applying God's word is it does provide tangible, measurable benefits not the least of which is health.

Staver: Labeling Us As 'Hate Groups' Is Just Like What Happened in Nazi Germany

On a recent "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Matt Barber and Mat Staver were discussing the current Religious Right outrage over an Army Reserve briefing in which "Evangelical Christianity" was listed among various kinds of "religious extremism."

A spokesperson said the slide was not produced by the Army and was removed and the person responsible for it has apologized, but Staver and Barber know who is really to blame: the Southern Poverty Law Center.

In fact, Staver said, what the SPLC is doing by labeling Religious Right organization as hate groups "it's just like in Nazi Germany" where Jews were dehumanized and demonized so that when they were ultimately killed, "people turned a blind eye":

Beck: Muslims Responsible for Boston Bombing Because American Terrorists Always Target the Government

Last night, Glenn Beck went on the air shortly after the bombing at the Boston Marathon happened and even though very little was known at the time, Beck understandably felt obligated to cover it

It was fascinating to watch the reporters who actually work for The Blaze try to do their job of reporting what is actually known while answering questions from Beck, who is under no such constraints and feels free to just randomly speculate about how this couldn't have been carried out by an America, because Americans who do things like this always target the government, not streets filled with people [tell that to Eric Rudolph.]

Beck also speculated that we might never know the "true story" of what happened because the Obama administration is soft of Islamic terrorism and doesn't think al Qaeda exists, so they will have to "spin this" to hide the truth if it was carried out by Islamic extremists:

Erik Rush: Kill All Muslims in Response to Boston Marathon Attack

Fox News contributor goes too far in the wake of the tragic violence at the Boston Marathon.

Beck: Society Is Going to Hell and the National Organization for Women is to Blame

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck spent a bit of time discussing the case of Kermit Gosnell and the media's supposed refusal to adequately cover the story.  Despite that fact that until last week, Beck's The Blaze had barely mentioned the story, Beck blamed the media for failing to cover it and announced that he was going to delve into it in potentially graphic detail on tonight's television program.

In Beck's view, the Gosnell case and "almost everything that is going on in our society, I think, was hastened by the National Organization of Women" [sic] because the organization convinced women that they were no different than men. 

And when that happens, "society goes to hell" because men stop respecting women "and society starts to careen out of control":

Fischer on Praying for Adolf Hitler and President Obama

On Friday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer was discussing the importance of praying for elected leaders, especially President Obama since "virtually every single one of his policies is out of alignment with the will and the word of God."

The discussion prompted Fischer to make a bizarre point involving Adolf Hitler in which he asserted that the fall of the Nazi regime and the suicide of Hitler himself "happened in response to the prayers of God's people."

As Fischer explained it, God was trying to do everything in his power to reach Hitler while also respecting his free will "just like God is doing with Barack Obama," citing Ben Carson's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast as proof.

But, Fischer said, it is not doing any good as God has been "giving Barack Obama opportunity after opportunity to hear and respond to the truth and, trust me, the day could come when God says 'I have given him enough chances ... it's time to bring about some kind of a change'" before quickly adding that the change might be nothing more than a new president in 2016:

Klingenschmitt: Allowing Openly Gay NFL Players is 'a Demonic Use of the Sporting Industry'

Charisma news editor Jennifer LeClaire is not the only one concerned about the prospect of openly gay athletes playing in the NFL, as "Doctor Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt is also sounding the alarm, warning that if NFL players come out as gay, youth coaches will start "recruiting children into the homosexual lifestyle and punishing Christians because they voice an opposition to that sort of thing in the locker room."

"I think the Devil is afoot here," Klingenschmitt warned, saying it "is a demonic use of the sporting industry":

Barber's Incoherent 'Plan B' Conspiracy Theory

Back in 2011, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius overruled a recommendation made by the Food and Drug Administration to make the morning-after pill, known as "Plan B," available without a prescription and without restrictions.

Earlier this month, a federal judge ruled that the restrictions put in place on Plan B by the HHS were "arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable" and struck them down.

And to Matt Barber, this all smacks of "collusion" between the judge and the Obama administration (starting at 3:23):

It seems a little redundant to me, in fact, that this Federal District Judge Edward Korman that he required, ordered, the Food and Drug Administration to lift any age and sale restrictions on Plan B. 

Well, this is the Obama FDA, so that's in perfect keeping with what this radical, pro-abort president is trying to do.  You know, you even have to wonder what kind of collusion is going on.  So I'm sure this is a "don't throw me in that briar patch" kind of situation in terms of this judge ordering the FDA to do something that President Obama would be inclined to do and has shown he's inclined to do in the first place.

Barber's theory, literally, makes no sense.

It was the Obama administration that placed the restrictions on Plan B, overruling the recommendations made by the FDA.  And those restrictions, put in place by the Obama administration, have now been struck down by a Regan-appointed judge.  So obviously, the Obama administration was not inclined to do this in the first place.

Maybe Barber ought to do a bit of research before filming these daily commentaries so that he might actually have an idea what he is talking about instead of incoherently spinning out illogical conspiracy theories. 

It Is Not News That FRC is Urging a Donor Boycott of the RNC

In an email sent out earlier this week, the Family Research Council urged activists not to make any donations to the Republican National Committee until it "grows a backbone" and starts defending the Religious Right's agenda with more vigor:

Until the RNC and the other national Republican organizations grow a backbone and start defending core principles, don't give them a dime of your hard-earned money. If you want to invest in the political process, and I encourage you to do so, give directly to candidates who reflect your values and organizations you trust--like FRC Action. At least then you can relax, knowing that your money will be spent advancing faith, family, and freedom!

This announcement is generating lots of press for FRC, so we feel that it ought to be pointed out that FRC has been saying this since at least 2008, when it first grew outraged that then-Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, Rep. Pete Sessions, met with the Log Cabin Republicans (emphasis added):

According to a press release from the pro-gay "marriage" group, Log Cabin Republicans, one of the first stops for the newly elected Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), Congressman Pete Sessions (R-Texas), was the fundraising dinner for the homosexual organization. The release states that Representative Sessions said that the GOP cannot win elections and reach out to voters if it continues to oppose the issues that Log Cabin stands for, presumably including same-sex "marriage." My team sought clarification from Sessions' office and was told he did speak to the Log Cabin group, but that a copy of his remarks was not available. If the Log Cabin portrayal is true, it is disturbing on a number of accounts. One, Sessions' new position as the head of the NRCC is to train and recruit new candidates for the Republican Party. If this is his idea of "campaign advice" then the Republicans better prepare for a longer term in the minority then they faced prior to 1994. Secondly, if the GOP is serious about reaching out to new voters, especially African-Americans and Hispanics, then it should look closely at the exit polls on issues important to families. Both minority groups strongly support traditional family values that embrace life and protect marriage, two things the Republican Party once stood for also. Under these circumstances, pro-family voters should reserve judgment about giving their financial support to either political party.

In 2010, FRC explicitly told activists to stop donating after it was reported that the RNC had spend nearly two thousand dollars at a bondage-themed strip clup in California (emphasis added):

The Republican National Committee (RNC) is at the center of another controversy, this one regarding nearly $2,000.00 spent at a bondage-themed strip club outside of Los Angeles. Information about the $1,946.00 dollar expenditure at Voyeur West Hollywood became public when the RNC released its most recent financial disclosure report. The public controversy over the expenditure led to the firing of the staffer yesterday who had incurred the expense. This latest incident is another indication to me that the RNC is completely tone-deaf to the values and concerns of a large number of people from whom they seek financial support.

Earlier this month the RNC made a big deal about hiring "renowned Supreme Court lawyer" Ted Olson to represent the RNC in a campaign finance case that is expected to go to the U.S. Supreme Court. Yes, this is the same Ted Olson that is trying to overturn the results of the marriage amendment in California. The outcome of Olson's challenge to Prop 8 goes far beyond nullifying the votes of nearly 7 million voters in California; his efforts could lead to the overturning of amendments and laws in all 45 states that currently define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

I've hinted at this before, but now I am saying it--don't give money to the RNC. If you want to put money into the political process, and I encourage you to do so, give directly to candidates who you know reflect your values. Better yet, become a member of FRC Action and learn about the benefits it offers, including participating in the FRC Action PAC which can support candidates who will advance faith, family and freedom!

For years now, FRC and others in the movement have been issuing idle threats to the GOP about withholding support and leaving the party, but every time an election comes around, they all dutifully fall right in line.

Fischer: 'Homofascists' Will Force Christians to Wear Patches, Just Like Nazis Did to the Jews

Yesterday, Janet Meffered responded to reports that a Michigan high school had canceled a speech by Rick Santorum by declaring that soon "Christian who supports real marriage might be made to wear a yellow patch on the sleeve, a ‘badge of shame’ to identify us as ‘anti-gay haters.’ Kind of like the Jews in Nazi Germany.”

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer discussed the same story and made a similar prediction, saying "we're getting to the point where these homofascists are going to force us to wear on our sleeve some kind of identifying marker so people will know who the racists and the homophobes and the bigots are":

Beck: Because Of Common Core, 'I am Not Sending Another Child to College'

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck continued his truly unhinged crusade against Common Core by pointing out that Exxonmobil supports it while alleging that the company is only doing so because someone in the government called in a favor and maybe even secretly promised them drilling rights for doing so.

The all-encompassing reach of Common Core has led Beck to decide that he will not allow his children to ever attend college because he will not allow them to be indoctrinated and become part of "the system that is coming." Beck then became very serious and cautious, telling his audience to "just be aware that there are many ways to mark people" and warning them to "be very careful":

Beck: 'I Have a Feeling We're Headed for a Monarchy'

On Tuesday evening, the President and the First Lady hosted the latest "In Performance at the White House" event which consisted of a tribute to Memphis soul music.

And Glenn Beck was reasonably outraged about it on last night's program, demanding to know why the Obama's are living like royalty when global economic and social collapse is imminent.  Beck even posted paintings of Barack and Michelle dressed like Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette while warning that "we're headed for a monarchy," only this time "maybe Marie Antoinette and King Louis keep their heads while all of their subjects lose theirs":

Barton Backtracks, Falsely Claims He Wasn't 'Justifying' Brutal Treatment of Native Americans

A few weeks ago, we posted some audio clips from a "WallBuilders Live" radio program in which David Barton explained the concept of just war theory during which he justified the brutal treatment of Native Americans by white settlers and the American government on the grounds that they needed to be destroyed in order to be taught a lesson and eventually made civilized.

Shortly thereafter, WallBuilders posted a message on its Facebook page claiming that Barton was not "justifying" this sort of treatment but merely "explaining" what had happened:

David was not justifying, but merely explaining the historical context of what happened, in the same way that he explained the British march to the sea. He made a parallel between the two as to tactics and strategy that were used during war at that time. David was explaining the historical events regarding King Philip's War, not the atrocities that were in general committed against the Indian tribes and nations, which we in no way condone. There is a big difference between justifying and merely explaining or reporting.

Like so much of Barton's work, this explanation holds up only so long as one blindly accepts Barton's nonsensical interpretation and doesn't bother to verify what he says, which is pretty easy since we produced a transcript of it at the time.

As anyone can see, Barton was not merely "explaining" what happened but was actively defending it on the grounds that "you cannot reason with certain types of terrorists." As Barton said at the time, the Indians had "declared war on all the white guys" and so "we had to go in and we had to destroy Indian tribes all over" until they got the message:

You have to deal, a lot of it, with how the enemy responds. It's got to be based on what the enemy responds [to,] you cannot reason with certain types of terrorists; and see that's why we could not get the Indians to the table to negotiate with us on treaties until after we had thoroughly whipped so many tribes ... What happened was the Indian leaders said "they're trying to change our culture" and so they declared war on all the white guys and went after the white guys and that was King Philip's War.  It was really trying to be civilized on one side and end torture and the Indians were threatened by the ending of torture and so we had to go in and we had to destroy Indian tribes all over until they said "oh, got the point, you're doing to us what we're doing to them, okay, we'll sign a treaty."

...

Take, for example, what happened in the western plains wars in the late 1800s when we were taking on the plains Indians.  I'm not talking about treaties, I'm not talking about behavior of Americans toward Indians or vice versa, there were violations on both sides of nearly every treaty.  I'm talking about what happened in ending those wars after Custer and everything that went on.

People complain about the fact that the American military and buffalo hunters went out and wiped out all the buffalo in the western plains.  Doing that was what brought the Indians to their knees because the Indians lived on those wide western plains where there were very few towns; Indians didn't go into town to buy supplies, they went to the buffalo herds, that's where they got their meat, that's where they got their coats, the hides provided coats, they provided covering for their teepees.

If you don't have the buffalos, those Indians cannot live on the open western plains without those buffalo and so what happened was the military wiped out the supply line by wiping out the buffalo.  That's what brought those wars to an end, that's what brought the Indians to their knees and ended all the western conflict.

The focus of the radio program was a discussion of just war theory and Barton's purpose in bringing up this issue was to explain that these tactics were justified specifically because they do not appear to be justifiable.

Barton was not merely "explaining" what had happened, but was justifying it on the grounds that when your enemies refuse to abide by the "rules of civilization, you still have to secure the life and the property and the protection of your citizens" in whatever way you can.

Akers: Atheists Trying to 'Finish the Job' of Bringing Down the Twin Towers

Last month, a judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by American Atheists seeking to prevent a pair of beams in the shape of a cross that was pulled from the debris of the collapsed World Trade Center from being included in the official 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Mat Staver and Shawn Akers discussed the lawsuit, with Akers calling it "religious McCarthyism" and saying that it is ironic that "extremists from a particular religion brought down the Twin Towers, but the atheists are coming in to finish the job":

Harvey: Day of Silence 'Manipulating' Kids to 'Enter A Lifestyle Which Itself Will Be Incredibly Harmful To Them'

The Religious Right’s anti-anti-bullying efforts are beginning to swing into high gear as the Day of Silence, which is run by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) and centers on making schools safer for LGBT students, approaches on April 19.

Mission America’s Linda Harvey in her radio bulletin today once again criticized the day of action and called on families to keep their kids away from school that day.

The boycott campaign is backed by anti-gay groups such as Liberty Counsel, Concerned Women for America and Faith2Action, which urge public schools to resist “GLSEN's socio-political goals and its controversial, unproven, and destructive theories on the nature and morality of homosexuality.”

Harvey warns that the Day of Silence “has become a central showpiece in this homosexual agenda in our schools” and offers “inaccurate and harmful information in schools about homosexuality.”

Rather than “preventing harm to kids,” Harvey warns the Day of Silence “encourages more kids to approve of or enter a lifestyle which itself will be incredibly harmful to them. So instead of allowing kids to be manipulated, it’s a good idea to keep your kids at home that day.”

“The compassionate hearts of kids are manipulated into approving of deviant lifestyles and practices,” Harvey states, maintaining that gays and lesbians do “not need to be involved in such behavior and God can rescue anyone who wants a different life.”

We’ve been telling you for several weeks about the pro-homosexual Day of Silence and why Christian families are staying home from school that day. Here’s a little more background: for a number of years Christian groups and parents nationwide have increasingly become concerned about the growth of inaccurate and harmful information in schools about homosexuality. The Day of Silence, coming up on or around Friday, April 19, has become a central showpiece in this homosexual agenda in our schools.

My overwhelming concern about this day centers around three things: 1) It encourages sympathy for homosexuality, which is wrong; 2) it implies that no one can object to homosexuality without being hateful and that’s also incorrect; 3) it does all this while pretending to be about justice and preventing harm to kids. The truth is that this is victim posturing that encourages more kids to approve of or enter a lifestyle which itself will be incredibly harmful to them. So instead of allowing kids to be manipulated, it’s a good idea to keep your kids at home that day.

We’ve called this the Day of Silence Walk Out and you can find out more at DOSWalkOut.net. Why did they start this Day of Silence protest to begin with? Students sometimes even have tape over their mouths and they pledge to remain silent all day. Why? Because they claim that homosexuals have been routinely silenced and victimized and don’t have a voice. You may be thinking, now hold on just a minute! Indeed, it’s a typical leftist victim strategy. Not that we don’t sympathize with any student who is bullied for any reason but this is pure political propaganda, manipulating a sensitive situation and we don’t have to allow our kids to sit there in class while sometimes even the teachers are going along with this.

Unlike the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) would have you believe, schools, parents and kids do not have to condone immoral and harmful behaviors like homosexuality and gender bending to prevent or stand up against bullying. This is a diversionary tactic. High moral sexuality standards are helpful, not hateful. The goal of these adult radicals though is to use vulnerable kids to carry this inaccurate message for them. Meanwhile, the compassionate hearts of kids are manipulated into approving of deviant lifestyles and practices.



So when you stand up against misinformation remember you are standing against behavior, not against the person. That person does not need to be involved in such behavior and God can rescue anyone who wants a different life.

Jacobs: Our Prayers Exposed a Terrorist Sleeper Cell

As she has several times in the past, Cindy Jacobs revealed on the most recent episode of "God Knows" that her prayers have prevented a terrorist attack.

As Jacobs recalled it, she and her husband Mike and some friends were taking a vacation in upstate New York when, while sitting at lunch one day, "the Lord began to tell me that there was a terrorist attack being planned in that little town." 

So Jacobs rose and went outside when God instructed her to share that information with a group of man standing outside the restaurant, who just so happened to be a group of local pastors. 

Together they all mobilized their prayer networks and "everybody began to pray and it was exposed; there was a sleeper cell in that area that got exposed":

Cathie Adams: UN Climate Change Treaty Is the New World Order

Yesterday, Cathie Adams, the president of the Texas Eagle Forum, delivered a presentation to the Southeast Texas Tea Party on the dangers of environmentalism and Agenda 21 in which she made the case that the environmental movement is like a watermelon: "green on the outside and Marxist red on the inside."

Adams said that environmentalists are blasphemers because "these people worship the creation instead of the Creator" and that is why "our children are being taught now in public schools to capitalize the "E" of "Earth"; it is an object of worship."

When Adams later asked rhetorically why President George H.W. Bush went to Brazil in 1992 to sign the United Nations Climate Change convention, an audience member blurted out that he did so because "he's a traitor!" which prompted Adams to declare that "this climate change treaty is exactly the New World Order":
