Barber & Staver Outraged That Chris Christie Thinks He Knows Better Than God

Shortly after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed legislation banning the use of "ex-gay" therapy on minors, the anti-gay activists at Liberty Counsel announced that they would be filing suit.

On today's "Faith and Freedom" broadcast, Mat Staver and Matt Barber discussed their forthcoming lawsuit and were particularly outraged that, in signing the legislation, Christie said that he doesn't believe that homosexuality is a sin.

Staver vehemently disagreed, stating that homosexuality "is a disordered situation; it is sin; t is wrong."

Barber was likewise outraged, blasting "the hubris behind him saying that he knows better than God, that he knows better than thousands of years of tradition, the Catholic Church, the Christian church, the Bible about homosexuality and the sin inherent in those behaviors":

Klingenschmitt: The FCC Is Letting Demonic Spirits 'Molest And Visually Rape Your Children'

Citing a campaign launched by Morality In Media to ensure that Tom Wheeler, President Obama's nominee to head the Federal Communications Commission, will enforce decency standards, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt said on his "Pray In Jesus Name" show that demonic spirits are using lax FCC enforcement of these standards to "molest and visually rape your children."

"Dr. Chaps" said that former FCC chairman Julius Genachowski failed to adequately enforce the decency standards during his time in office and that was because there was a "demonic spirit of tyranny or immorality inside of him."

And even though Genachowski outwardly appears very polished and successful, "the demonic spirit influences him to abuse and, dare I say, molest and visually rape your children":

Fischer Tries To Mock Rep. Carol Shea-Porter And Fails Miserably

As we have noted several times before, self-awareness is not one of Bryan Fischer's strong suits and his cluelessness was on full display once again this afternoon when he attempted to mock Rep. Carol Shea-Porter for saying that the corporate tax rate in America was "just a suggestion."

The point that Shea-Porter was making was entirely accurate, as she was simply acknowledging that the effective tax rate actually paid by corporations is far lower than the set federal rate.  In essence, the tax rate is "just a suggestion" because corporations don't really pay that.

But Fischer played a clip of Shea-Porter making this true statement and then mocked her for it, saying "tell that to Martha Stewart, tell that to Bernie Madoff, tell that to who knows how many people are in prison for treating the tax code as if it were just a suggestion."

Of course, Stewart went to prison for insider trading and Madoff went to prison for running a massive Ponzi scheme ... so any connection between these examples and the issue of corporate tax rates exists only in Fischer's "twisted mind":

Beck: 'If Anyone Does Anything In This Company Because Of Global Warming, They're Fired'

Outraged that employees in his organization had begun placing recycling bins throughout The Blaze's headquarters and studio and replaced individual water bottles with a water cooler, Glenn Beck brought the Vice President of Studio Operations onto his radio program today to explain why these changes were taking place.

When she claimed that doing so was saving the company money, Beck not only didn't buy it but also didn't really care and instead issued a new company-wide policy that any employee who buys a compact fluorescent light bulb when non-CFL options are available will be fired.

"Global warming is a pile of crap," Beck declared, adding that he would be issuing a memo informing everyone that "if anyone does anything in this company because of global warming, they're fired":

Barber: 'It May Be A Time For Civil Disobedience'

Matt Barber appeared on the "Today's Issues" broadcast this morning to discuss his most recent column about a bakery in Oregon which has had a complaint filed against it for refusing to provide a wedding cake to a same-sex couple.

In light of this and similar instances around the country, Barber declared that it has become obvious that gay marriage and religious liberty cannot coexist and so "in much the same fashion as did the civil rights activists of old - Martin Luther King and others - Christians are going to have a decision to make; it may be a time for civil disobedience."

"Christians have been persecuted for 2000 years by radical leftists," he said, adding that just as King spent time in jail, anti-gay Christians today might have to suffer the same fate, knowing that they will be rewarded by God for upholding his law and refusing to "pretend that somehow a man can marry a man, a woman can marry a woman."

"You guys can put on two tuxedos or two wedding dresses and play house and get pretend married 'til your heart's content," Barber said, "but marriage is what God says it is.  We can no more change the laws of gravity than can we change the laws of marriage": 

Klingenschmitt: Madonna Is Possessed By A Demonic Spirit Of Adultery

On his most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program, "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt dedicated an entire segment to investigating the question of whether pop star Madonna is possessed by demons.

Citing lyrics from her song "Revolver," which he judged against the "Warning Against the Adulterous Woman" from Proverbs 7, Klingenschmitt concluded that, in fact, Madonna is possessed by a demonic spirit of adultery.

Klingenschmitt then added that he has heard of people being cured of liver cancer after repenting for this sin of pornography, before politely declining Madonna's invitation to engage in intercourse because he has been happily married for 22 years:

Fischer: 'I Think We May Be Headed Toward Bloodshed In America'

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who warned that the American people will one day wake up to what is being done to them by the government and when that day comes, it will lead to revolution.

Fischer shared the caller's concerns, saying "I think we may be headed toward bloodshed in America."

"There are a number of avenues," Fischer stated, "starting right where we're at right now that could lead to bloodshed, could lead to anarchy, could lead to chaos in America."

After insisting that he does not want to see anything like that happen, Fischer warned that the fact that members of Congress are reluctant to hold town hall meetings during the August recess could lead to a revolution.

"If our elected officials will not listen to us, if they will not meet with us, if they will not respond to the urgent appeal of their own constituents, the people that elected them to office, then eventually you might get to the point [where] people will just get fed up and then you'll start having some very, very unpredictable things that will happen":

Wildmon: Secular Progressives 'Hate The God Of The Bible'

Birther king Joseph Farah of WND was a guest on the "Today's Issues" program this morning where he and AFA President Tim Wildmon discussed "Obama's war against Christians."

Wildmon admitted that Christians in America are not suffering the same sort of persecution as Christians in other nations around the world, but warned that if America continues to follow this path, that same sort of persecution will soon be happening here "if you continue to denigrate people and their beliefs and their Bible."

Wildmon blamed it all on secular progressives who are "progressing toward anarchy ... or communism" and who "hate the Judeo-Christian worldview; in essence, they won't tell you this necessarily, but they hate the god of the Bible " and seek to rebel against him:

Klingenschmitt: 'American Law Needs To Reflect God's Law'

A large portion of "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt's most recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program was dedicated to replaying an interview he recently gave to Alan Colmes over his assertion that gays ought to be discriminated against.

After having played the entire interview, Klingenschmitt commented that he and Colmes disagree on the role that the Bible should play in our public policy, with Klingenschmitt saying that "American law needs to reflect God's law."

If it does not, Klingenschmitt warned, "American law is telling some people, oh this is really legal, when it's actually illegal under God's law ... [and that] does a disservice even to the homosexual community who will face that on Judgment Day":

Staver: Legal Abortion Is An 'Absolutely Atrocious Holocaust,' Akin To Nazi Germany

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast, Mat Staver and Daniel Schmid of Liberty Counsel were discussing the investigation launched by the General Accounting Office into how organizations like Planned Parenthood spend public funds.

While Staver welcomed the investigation, he was dismayed that it didn't go nearly far enough, demanding to know when America "is going to wake up to this absolutely atrocious holocaust." Likening legal abortion to what happened in Nazi Germany, Staver demanded that politicians stand up and ask "how can humanity continue to condone this kind of barbaric behavior against our own human species!"

Schmid added that it was all rooted in "the wickedness of America and our need to repent and turn back to the Lord" because, just like in Nazi Germany, "those who hate God, love death."

Staver concluded by urging viewers not to "just get frustrated by this bloodthirsty administration," but rather to take a stand and get involved in the fight to outlaw abortion:

Fischer & Mihet: Those Who Oppose ENDA Will Be Charged With Crimes Against Humanity

Last week, a judge refused to dismiss the lawsuit against Scott Lively stemming from his anti-gay advocacy in Uganda.  Today, his lawyer, Harry Mihet of Liberty Counsel, appeared on Bryan Fischer's radio program to discuss the lawsuit, where the two of them speculated that if it succeeds, then anyone who would dare to testify against or oppose a law like the Employment Nondiscrimination Act could be prosecuted for committing crimes against humanity.

"If that is allowed to succeed in the Scott Lively case," Mihet said, "then the very next and logical step would be to take anyone that would oppose legislation in ENDA in the US and to have the charged with international human rights violations, the most heinous of crimes, crimes against humanity, or persecution for doing nothing more than exercising their rights to speak their minds on an issue of public importance in the public square.  At some point, we have to ask ourselves are we still a free country, governed by a constitution with a First Amendment or are we entering an era of fascism when it comes to this issue":

Stemberger: New Anti-Gay Scouting Organization Like The Resurrection Of Jesus

John Stemberger was the guest on "WallBuilders Live" today, discussing the new anti-gay alternative to the Boy Scouts that will be announced later this Fall.

During the discussion, Stemberger stated that with the formation of this new organization, something good will finally result from the vote by the Boy Scouts of America to allow gay scouts, likening it to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.

"Sometimes things have to die," Stemberger said, "before there's a new birth and it comes back better than before. And, not to extend the analogy too far, but even our Lord went through that process":

Later, co-host Rick Green asked Stemberger what he would say to a Boy Scout leader who was thinking of remaining with the Scouts because this is not an issue for them because they don't have any openly gay boys wanting to join their troop.  Stemberger responded by warning that gay activists will begin to "strategically place openly gay boys in troops, especially very conservative troops and see if they will, you know, deny them membership based on the fact that they are flaunting their sexuality" in order to file lawsuits:

Near the end of the broadcast, David Barton picked up on Stemberger's warming to issue a warning of his own that "little sins always grow to become big sins that will turn and devour you."  To illustrate this point, Barton cited  naturalist Joy Adamson, who wrote the book "Born Free" about her experience raising a lion cub.

"Joy Adamson is a name back years ago out of Africa.  She did the famous movie and the book 'Born Free' and then 'Living Free' where she raised the lion cubs and Elsa was a lion cub and she ends up getting killed by her favorite lions that she's raised from cubs":

Of course, like so much of what Barton says, this is not true at all, as Adamson was actually murdered by a former employee, not killed by lions. 

A Lesson For 'Dr. Chaps' On How The Internet Works

Over the last week or so, we have written several posts featuring statements that have been made by "Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt on his daily "Pray In Jesus Name" program and elsewhere, including one in which he asserted that Texas state Senator Wendy Davis is "ruled by a demon of murder" and ought to be prosecuted.

As we generally do, we uploaded that video to YouTube so we can embed it in our post and so others can do the same.  Of course, since this is the internet, things posted on it sometimes attract unfriendly and unpleasant comments ... but according to a statement put out by Klingenschmitt on Friday, we are going to be held criminally liable for a few random comments left by completely anonymous users on one of the internet's most popular and heavily trafficked sites because, by failing to remove them, we are now supposedly encouraging "the assassination of pro-life Christian leaders":

In their most recent post on YouTube.com, RWW plagiarized (without consent) and posted (using their own web-site logo) part of an original PIJN NEWS television broadcast created and copyrighted by Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, PhD, in which he criticized a pro-abortion Texas legislator. Within 24 hours, six anti-Christian followers of RWW published written death threats against the chaplain on RWW's youtube page.

Three of those posts, still active on YouTube as of 16 Aug, call upon RWW's followers to kill Chaplain Klingenschmitt:
1.       can we murder this fu**
2.       I don't think he's a fetus. So yeah, you could murder him and still be pro-life.
3.       Another white a** cracker pu*** that needs a .45 Caliber renovation.

Three other followers of RWW stated they wished the Chaplain would die, or had been murdered by an abortionist, or praised the demon of murder.
4.       What a pathetic little bi***. Can't wail till these people die out.
5.       Don't diss the "deamon of murder", I've met him. He's not a bad guy.
6.       This guy is a sh** person and would have been better if he was aborted.

The Chaplain takes these death threats seriously, and has notified the F.B.I. and YouTube. He said, "Sadly, Right Wing Watch fails to watch themselves, or censor death threats from their blog, making them an accessory after the fact. I asked RWW to delete their death threats, but so far they refuse, which makes me believe their blogger Kyle Mantyla and his supervisors at People for the American Way (including President Michael B. Keegan and Chairman Lara Bergthold) now encourage the assassination of pro-life Christian leaders. If such fate should befall me or anyone in my family, I hold RWW immediately responsible, yet I do pray that God will show mercy upon those who hate Christians, and soften their hearts to repent, so the Lord Jesus Christ will forgive their sins. I return their curses with a sincere prayer that God will bless them and save them from their sins and demons, in Jesus' name, Amen."

The fact that Klingenschmitt thinks that our fair use of clips from his program is "plagiarism" gives you a sense of just what sort of legal scholar we are dealing with, so it is no surprise that he also thinks that we are somehow responsible for random comments posted on YouTube.

So imagine our joy when "Dr. Chaps" took his tale of intimidation straight over to Rick Wiles' End Times radio program on Friday afternoon where Klingenschmitt threatened that he was going "to file conspiracy after the fact" charges against us - whatever that is supposed to mean - while Wiles openly asserted that we are intentionally hoping to get people killed:

Klingenschmitt: I have received six death threats in the last twenty four hours from followers of Right Wing Watch, which is a subset of People For the American Way, which was I think started by Norman Lear and a lot of communist funding went into that.

But when they attack you, when they attack me, they don't police themselves.  It's funny how Right Wing Watch doesn't watch their own followers because their own followers now - the conversation on their YouTube page began something like this: 'well, I wish that Chaplain Klingenschmitt had been aborted' and then this other guy said 'can we kill him?,' no, this other guy said 'I can't wait for him to die,' and then another guy said 'can we murder him?' And then someone responded 'yes, we can murder him' and then someone else responded 'he needs a .45 caliber renovation.'

Wiles: This is on the website of Right Wing Watch?

Klingenschmitt: It is.

Wiles: This is on the comments section.  They're always accusing conservatives and Christians of being hatemongers, but the Right Wing Watch and the Southern Poverty Law Center, these are the real hatemongers and they are deliberately trying to get somebody murdered.

Klingenschmitt: I left a message with the FBI and then I left messages [with PFAW and they] still have not removed the blogs, so now I'm back on the phone with the FBI this afternoon.  If we need to, we're going to file conspiracy after the fact or accessory after the fact criminal charges against these leaders because even though they know about it, they're doing nothing to constrain these death threats when are on their site threatening to kill me with a .45 caliber weapon.

...

Wiles: What these communist groups are doing is that they are fomenting such vehement hate against Christians that they really are hoping that somebody will go off their rocker and kill one of them.  That's really what these people are trying to do.

Obviously, these comments are not posted here on Right Wing Watch, as both Chaps and Wiles repeatedly asserted, since we don't have comments on this blog! The comments were posted by anonymous viewers on YouTube, which is a forum that we do not moderate or generally even read and for which we most certainly are not responsible.

But if "Dr. Chaps" wants to waste tens of thousands of dollars attempting to hold us criminally responsbile for random comments left by strangers on the internet, we wish him the best of luck. 

Fischer Doubles Down On His Photoshop Theory And Tosses In Some Sexism To Boot

Yesterday we noted that Bryan Fischer is now promoting a theory that President Obama was photoshopped into the iconic image showing the situation room during the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

Fischer was widely mocked for the suggestion which means, of course, that he has doubled down and dedicated two segments of his radio broadcast today to defending his theory.

His defense was predictably idiotic, as perfectly exemplified by this section in which he suggests that President Obama is wearing a windbreaker in the photo because this was only image that could be found of him where was was not looking down on everyone.

Fischer literally stated that "President Obama never looks up at anything; he looks down on everybody at all times in all circumstances. He's got his nose up in the air looking down on you, looking down on me, looking down on the press, looking down on the American people."

As such, the only image that could be found of him looking in the proper direction was this one, which was why they had to concoct a phony story that Obama had been out on the golf course earlier in the day.

Amazingly, that was not the most idiotic part of his statement, as he then went on to state that because former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had her hand over her mouth in the photo, it demonstrates that she is not fit to be President.

"She's horrified, she frightened," Fischer said. "Is that the woman you want to get the 3am phone call? You want her to get the 3 am phone call? Seriously! She's sitting there at the table with her hand over her mouth, in shock.  Now the guys around the table, they're sober, they're focused, they're intent, but they are not freaked out.  Hillary Clinton is freaked out by what she is seeing on the screen. Do we want her taking the 3 am phone call? I don't think so":

Beck: 'Oprah Winfrey, You Disgust Me'

Over the last week, Glenn Beck has repeatedly attacked Oprah Winfrey for daring to compare the Trayvon Martin case to the murder of Emmett Till and, in response, has been focusing on a gruesome 2007 murder of a white couple that was tortured and brutalized by five African Americans, demanding to know why the media has not been covering this story.

Apparently the simple fact that it happened five years ago is no excuse for Beck, who returned to it again today on his radio program during an extended rant against Winfrey, which culminated with Beck declaring that Winfrey disgusts him as he self-righteously compared himself to the Statue of Liberty.

"Oprah Winfrey, you disgust me!" Beck fumed, as he ranted that she has overcome so much in her life and achieved wild success, only to turn around and tell us "white people are the problem."

Beck then grew very somber as he declared "Oprah, I choose to be the person that America thought you were," calling on people to gather around him as a beacon of hope.

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free," he said. "Give me the ones that you have told 'you'll never make it.' Send them to me. The tempest-tost, because I hold my lamp beside a golden door":

Fischer: Liberals Angry At Rodeo Clown's Blasphemous Idolatry

As we noted yesterday, we don't know what has gotten into Bryan Fischer lately, but he has been making statements over the last week or so that are so far out there that we don't even understand what he is talking about anymore.

For example, on his radio broadcast yesterday afternoon, he dedicated a few minutes to discussing the controversy over the Obama mask-wearing rodeo clown during which he claimed that the reason liberals are upset about it is because they see it as a blasphemous form of idolatry.

Fischer says that since liberals see Obama as the Messiah, just as the Ten Commandments declare that graven images shall not be made, they think that someone wearing an Obama mask is blasphemy and idolatry.

We literally have no idea what he is talking about:

Fischer: Obama Was Photoshopped Into Bin Laden Raid Situation Room Photo

We are not sure what is going on over at the American Family Association but for the last week or so, Bryan Fischer has been coming up with some stuff that is crazy, even by his standards. 

And that trend continues as today, on his radio broadcast, Fischer shared his theory that President Obama had been photoshopped into the iconic photo of the situation room taken during the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

As Fischer sees it, Obama wanted to be nowhere near the room while the raid took place in case anything went wrong.  But once it was a success, he had himself photoshopped into the photo:

Glenn Beck Psychoanalyzes President Obama

Glenn Beck opened his radio program today with a truly fascinating psychological analysis of President Obama during which he proclaimed that Obama is a coward who feels like he doesn't fit in and is so lacking in self-confidence that he cries himself to sleep at night, curled up in the fetal position because he is terrified that the world is going to realize that he is a total fraud.

Ironically, the entire segment seemed like little more than an exercise in projection to us:

No, Common Core Does Not Teach That 3 x 4 = 11

As we were saying just the other day, the AFA's Bryan Fischer flat out does not care about the truth of the claims that he makes on his radio program, provided that he has some source to which he can point to support them, no matter how unreliable or misleading that source may be.

And he provided another example of this on his radio program yesterday when he played a clip of some educator stating that, under Common Core, it doesn't matter if students think that 3 x 4 = 11, so long as they can explain how they arrived at that answer, they will be correct.

Fischer was outraged, saying "this is somebody that is training teachers on how to implement this Common Core curriculum and she says 'look, we will be happy if a student says 3 x 4 is 11, we will accept that answer, we will be happy with that answer, we will affirm that answer":

Of course, if you bother to do ten seconds of research, you can easily find the longer, original video that doesn't get cut off right before the speaker says that any student who answered that 3 x 4 = 11 would be wrong and would be corrected:
