Religious Right Preacher: God Using Donald Trump And Fox News To Save America

Os Hillman, the right-wing preacher behind the dominionist “Reclaiming the Seven Mountains” website, took to Charisma magazine today to ask the question that has been on everyone’s minds: “ Is God using Donald Trump to wake up the nation?

“Only God knows the answer to that,” Hillman vaguely concludes, while suggesting that Trump through his “prophetic voice” may be the American equivalent of King Cyrus, the Persian ruler who liberated the Jews. Hillman writes that “God is using” Trump “to uncover the veil of the current political leadership and culture in America to show us the corrupt nature of what is under that veil” and “bring the nation back to some semblance of sanity.”

Hillman also writes that “God seems to be using Fox News to bring light to moral injustices.”

“Fox News has become a prophetic mouthpiece to call the nation back to some sense of moral behavior,” he gushes. “They are bringing attention to issues that the anti-God liberal press refuses to own up to.”

I believe part of this is that God is using him to uncover the veil of the current political leadership and culture in America to show us the corrupt nature of what is under that veil.

Trump is articulating what we all felt was under that veil—deception, lying, lack of accountability and pandering to what is politically correct. Trump is seeking to represent something that is the exact opposite.



Now, along comes Donald Trump. He is espousing a new way of operating because he is sounding a trumpet to the nation that our nation is broken and needs to be fixed. He is becoming a new prophetic voice, albeit not necessarily spiritual, but certainly based on truth. What are those values?

Stop pandering—start solving problems. The first problem he is speaking out about and committed to fixing is our failed immigration policy. He is calling out all the politicians who refuse to recognize the problem that our open borders have created and they have been unwilling to do anything about. Trump is proposing specific action steps that involve accountability from Mexico.



Fox News has become a prophetic mouthpiece to call the nation back to some sense of moral behavior. They are bringing attention to issues that the anti-God liberal press refuses to own up to.

Recently Fox News exposed things like the flood of dangerous immigrants into so-called "Sanctuary Cities," giving proven murderers sanctuary.

They are sounding the moral outrage over Planned Parenthood's selling of body parts. God seems to be using Fox News to bring light to moral injustices. Yet, they are a minority voice in the world of media.

I do not know how God is going to use Donald Trump in the nation. Will He use him like He used Cyrus in the Old Testament? He was a secular king, but ruled righteously. King Cyrus was an extremely important person, because God destroyed the Babylonian empire through him, and brought a close to a 70-year punishment of the Jews that God imposed on them for their rebellion against him.

Will God use a secular businessman like Donald Trump to bring the nation back to some semblance of sanity? Can this be done without a spiritual awakening in its people? Only God knows the answer to that. However, one thing is for sure, he is stirring up the political establishment and may, at a minimum, infuse some accountability from the political leadership in this nation.

The Voting Rights Act: Yesterday and Today

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act (VRA) of 1965 by President Lyndon Baines Johnson. The Act, which passed then and has passed since with strong bipartisan support, provided necessary protections from discriminatory voting practices by Southern states aimed at African Americans. That was yesterday. Today's VRA is barely recognizable.

Yesterday, protection was needed against poll taxes (barred in federal elections with the ratification of the 24th Amendment), literacy taxes, and things like “white primaries” in Texas. Today protection is needed against voter identification laws, purging of voting rolls, the disenfranchisement of voting rights for formerly incarcerated persons, big money in politics, and redistricting.

Yesterday, Jim Crow was to have retired in 1964 with the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 also signed by President Johnson. Today Jim Crow is “James Crow, PhD,” – CEO of the prison industrial complex, instigator of the war on women and card carrying, dues paying member of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), determined to re-define democracy in this country.

Yesterday, 50 years ago on March 7, 1965, courageous women and men were a part of a nonviolent march attempting to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge, which became known as “Bloody Sunday.” Five months later the Voting Rights Act was signed. 

Today, 50 years later I stand here in Dallas with Ambassador Andrew Young, Martin Luther King, III, officers, clergy, laity, and Dr. James Perkins, President of the Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc. at its 54th annual conference, the convention of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., with great clarity and without doubt that the Voting Rights Act of yesterday is still needed in its fullness today!  

Yesterday, on November 22, 1963, here in Dallas at the Dealey Plaza, John F. Kennedy was assassinated and then Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson was sworn in as this country’s 36th president. Blood and tears of Kennedy and the nonviolent marchers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge were mingled at the raising of a pen to try to finish what Kennedy started - the righting of a wrong. Today, blood and tears of the Emmanuel Nine were mingled in the lowering of the confederate flag on the grounds of the South Carolina state capital.

Yesterday, under the Johnson administration, his “Great Society” vision for America, we got Medicare and Medicaid (also 50 this month), a ban on race discrimination in public facilities, the War on Poverty, and the passage of the Immigration and Naturalization Act. Today, we still must march for Medicaid expansion, an end to racial profiling and gender and sexual identity discrimination, for comprehensive immigration reform. And 50 years later we still must fight for the protection of our right to vote.

We are here in Texas on this historic day, the same state that immediately following the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Shelby County v. Holder on August 22, 2013, passed one of the country’s most oppressive, restrictive voter identification laws (SB14) at the time and was charged with violating Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act and the 14th and 15th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. 

We are here knowing from the yesterdays it is not a matter of “if” someone will test the voting laws of the land. Today it’s just a matter of “when.” Until we get to that place of protection, of security where rights will not, can no longer be denied, “let us march on,” educate, motivate, advocate, register and yes vote “till victory is won.”

Fifth Circuit Ruling on Texas Voter ID Shows Importance of Preclearance

Texas's voter ID law failed preclearance in 2012 but was implemented anyway after the Shelby County ruling. Today the 5th Circuit ruled it violates the VRA.

Ex-Rep. Steve Stockman: Obama Starting Another World War

Earlier this week, former Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman returned to End Times preacher Rick Wiles’ “Trunews” radio program, where he alleged that the U.S. is faking the military campaign against the so-called Islamic State and is instead instigating a conflict bigger than World War II.

After Stockman insisted that the Obama administration is “not bombing” ISIS, Wiles claimed that in fact “Obama created ISIS.” Wiles then charged that Obama is a Sunni Muslim, to which Stockman responded that “even the Sunnis hate him” and “most of them believe that Obama did create ISIS.”

“He’s created a war, a potential war, for the next president,” Stockman said, insisting that Obama is “pretty crazy” and may start “a war bigger than the Germans did” in World War II.

Stockman and Wiles then concluded that Obama is not a real American and that is why he honored the late Nelson Mandela, whom the former Republican lawmaker referred to as a terrorist.

In a previous appearance on “Trunews,” Stockman speculated that President Obama may have been “intentionally” spreading Ebola in order “to take control of the economy and individuals.”

Benham Brothers: Gay 'Bully Agenda' Coming At Christians With 'Guns Blazing'

David and Jason Benham, who have become Religious Right heroes since their anti-gay activism got them fired from HGTV, joined former Alaska GOP Senate candidate Joe Miller on his radio program Saturday to publicize their new book, “Whatever the Cost.”

David Benham kicked things off by warning that “all of the things that are going on in our country in the name of equality and love and tolerance,” such as marriage equality, are really “just a disguise for a bully agenda that is going to turn its guns blazing towards religious liberty in this country.”

David cautioned Miller that he should definitely be “concerned about [his] radio station” because it is “especially the voices of Christians that say homosexuality is a forbidden practice” who are at risk of censorship. “When our country no longer honors the exercise of religion, which is what that is, in the marketplace of wherever we are, it’s a very scary place to be,” he said.

Jason Benham traced marriage equality back to the end of government-sponsored prayer in public schools, which he said is the reason “sex has moved” to become “the theme of culture.”

Marriage equality, he said, is “the worst thing that could have ever happened to our nation” but “the best thing that could have ever happened to the church,” because now Christians will “get a chance to experience real persecution” which will “purify” the church by separating “the wheat from the chaff.”

“I really believe that if we are going to embrace the purification process we have to welcome the fire that purifies,” he said. “And a Supreme Court decision like this is the very thing that God’s going to use to turn his church back to him.”

Jason brought up the concept of the “doom loop,” a phrase that author Jim Collins uses to describe companies that are in a downward spiral, which he said also applies to American culture. “It takes forever to get” the doom loop “to take one revolution around,” but “then once it gets going it just spins consistently and goes faster and faster and faster,” he said.

“This is what’s happening in the culture as well,” Jason explained. “The devil has been working overtime for a long time, and now it’s just spinning out of control.”

But, he said, Christians can fight back by “lovingly” correcting people they disagree with because we’re “not yet” in “a physical fight.”

“The first thing you gotta recognize, at least here in America, is we’re not in a physical fight, at least not yet,” he said. “It’s a spiritual battle going on, so we’re not trying to kill people or pull guns on people or anything like that. What we’re doing is saying to Christians, get involved in the spiritual battle. Get involved with ideas that present themselves against the knowledge of God. Stand up and say ‘no, that’s not true,’ while you reach out lovingly to the people who hold those ideas. That’s what Christ is calling for today: cultural warriors who will stand strong for him on truth.”

Bryan Fischer: 'I Just Don't See How We Escape God's Judgment For What We Are Doing With Abortion'

American Family Radio host Bryan Fischer warned yesterday that God will most likely judge America for legal abortion, leading to “a complete cultural and societal collapse.”

“I would have to say, I think, given what I’m seeing in these videos and how that just brings into plain relief the moral collapse of this nation for decades now, I just don’t see how we escape God’s judgment for what we are doing with abortion. I just don’t see how that’s possible,” he said, referring to the recent series of videos smearing Planned Parenthood.

“I fear that we have passed the point of no return and we are going to wind up with a complete cultural and societal collapse,” he warned.

Sarah Palin On Donald Trump: 'I Thank God That He's Running'

Last week, Donald Trump told the hosts of “The Palin Update,” a webcast dedicated to all things Palin, that he would consider tapping the former-half-term governor for a post in his presidential administration. This week, Palin returned the favor, stopping by the program to praise the “awesome” Trump.

Palin, who once hailed Trump as a “hero,” didn’t hold back on praising the GOP presidential frontrunner: “He’s awesome. I thank God that he’s running. He’s stirring it up, he’s coaching, he’s educating the other candidates saying, ‘This is how you tap into the good part of a populist movement.’”

She urged other Republican candidates to “emulate” Trump rather than being “so stubborn and not humble enough to admit, ‘Oh, he’s right about that.’”

Palin also lauded Trump for his “boldness” in describing her as a “special person,” calling him a courageous truth-teller.

“Donald Trump is the art of the deal in so many respects, he wrote that book called ‘The Art of the Deal,’ but he literally knows the art of the deal and here in America we are losing deals left and right,” Palin said. “We’ve lost our industrial base, we’re losing our friends and allies, we’re losing obviously respect around the globe, we’re losing morale in the United States military with the troops whom we so respect and love and we want them to be able to respect and love their commander in chief and organization and all of these things that we’re losing deals on. Donald Trump is one who is saying, here’s how you fix the problem, here’s how you seal the deal to win.”

She added: “I do know Donald Trump well and personally even I can vouch for his character, his love of country and his intelligence when it comes to these solutions that he proposes.”

Liberty Counsel: Enforcing Marriage Equality Decision Violates The Constitution

Liberty Counsel, the right-wing legal group which has called for civil disobedience and a revolution to resist the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality, has been defending a county clerk in Kentucky who was sued for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The group’s founder, Mat Staver, who argues that the states and cities should simply ignore the marriage equality ruling, announced today that his group is now filing a lawsuit on behalf of the Kentucky clerk, Kim Davis, against the state’s governor, alleging that his enforcement of the Supreme Court’s decision violates the U.S. Constitution. The suit [PDF] argues that because the clerk opposes same-sex marriage, she should not have to perform her job duties and comply with the state’s marriage laws because doing so “would violate her deeply and sincerely held religious beliefs.” 

The group adds that Davis’ belief in divine laws trumps the court’s recent decision: “Before taking office as County Clerk in January 2015, Davis swore an oath to support the constitutions and laws of the United States and the Commonwealth of Kentucky ‘so help me God.’ Davis understood (and understands) this oath to mean that, in upholding the federal and state constitutions and laws, she would not act in contradiction to the moral law of God, natural law, or her sincerely held religious beliefs and convictions.”

By enforcing the marriage equality decision, Liberty Counsel claims, the state is violating the U.S. Constitution’s First and 14th Amendments. The group even alleges that the state is violating Article VI by trying to “impose a religious test as a qualification to hold the office of county clerk.”

1. The Commonwealth of Kentucky, acting through Governor Beshear, has deprived Davis of her religious conscience rights guaranteed by the United States and Kentucky Constitutions and laws, by insisting that Davis issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples contrary to her conscience, based on her sincerely held religious beliefs. Because of Governor Beshear’s open declaration that Davis has no such rights, Governor Beshear has exposed Davis to the Plaintiffs’ underlying lawsuit, in which the Plaintiffs claim a constitutional right to a Kentucky marriage license issued specifically by Davis. Governor Beshear is not only liable to Davis for Plaintiffs’ claims, but is also obligated to effect Kentucky marriage licensing policies that uphold Davis’s rights of religious conscience.



8. The Commonwealth of Kentucky has a body of democratically-enacted law memorializing the millennia-old, natural definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. In 1998, the Kentucky legislature codified at Ky. Rev. Stat. § 402.005 the natural definition of marriage, previously entrenched in Kentucky common law, that “‘marriage’ refers only to the civil status, condition, or relation of one (1) man and one (1) woman united in law for life, for the discharge to each other and the community of the duties legally incumbent upon those whose association is founded on the distinction of sex.” In 2004, the Kentucky legislature proposed a constitutional amendment, which was subsequently enacted on the approval of seventy-four percent (74%) of the voters, memorializing that “[o]nly a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Kentucky” KY. CONST. § 233A.



16. Davis is a professing Christian who is heavily involved in her local church, attending weekly Bible study and worship services there, and who leads a weekly Bible study for women at a local jail. 17. As a Christian, Davis possesses a sincerely held religious belief and conviction, based upon the Bible which she believes to be the Word of God, that “marriage” is exclusively a union between one man and one woman. According to her beliefs, there is no arrangement of people other than one man and one woman that is, or can be called, “marriage.”

18. As county clerk, as a matter of Kentucky law, Davis authorizes, and signifies her authorization and approval by affixing her name to, each and every marriage license issued from her office. But Davis can neither authorize nor approve the “marriage” of a same-sex couple according to her conscience, because even calling the relationship of a same-sex couple “marriage” would violate her deeply and sincerely held religious beliefs. Nor can Davis allow her name to appear as the source of authority and approval for any marriage license issued to a same-sex couple because providing such approval would violate her sincere religious beliefs and convictions.

19. Before taking office as County Clerk in January 2015, Davis swore an oath to support the constitutions and laws of the United States and the Commonwealth of Kentucky “so help me God.” Davis understood (and understands) this oath to mean that, in upholding the federal and state constitutions and laws, she would not act in contradiction to the moral law of God, natural law, or her sincerely held religious beliefs and convictions. Davis also understood (and understands) the constitution and laws she swore to uphold to incorporate the constitutional and other legal protections of all individuals’ rights to live and work according to their consciences, as informed by their sincerely held religious beliefs and convictions, including without limitation such rights she holds in her own individual capacity.

20. Davis’s sincerely held religious belief regarding the definition of “marriage” was perfectly aligned with the prevailing marriage policy in Kentucky at the time she took office, as provided in the Kentucky Constitution, Kentucky statutes, and controlling court decisions, and as effected by the Commonwealth through Governor Beshear and Commissioner Onkst.

...

38. Governor Beshear’s targeted and discriminatory marriage policy pronouncements constitute government-imposed pressure on Davis to act contrary to her religious beliefs, and expose Davis to potential liability if she refuses to compromise her religious beliefs and violate her conscience.



59. Davis’s sincerely held religious beliefs prohibit her from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Davis’s compliance with her religious beliefs is a religious exercise.



86. Kentucky’s marriage policies, as effected by Governor Beshear and Commissioner Onkst, violate Davis’s rights secured to her by the Free Exercise and Establishment Clauses of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and by the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.



99. Kentucky’s marriage policies, as effected by Governor Beshear and Commissioner Onkst, require persons with religious beliefs like those of Davis to renounce such beliefs as a condition to holding the office of county clerk, and thereby impose a religious test as a qualification to hold the office of county clerk.

100. Kentucky’s marriage policies, as effected by Governor Beshear and Commissioner Onkst, violate Davis’s rights secured to her by Article VI of the United States Constitution and the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Donald Trump: America Is 'Being Attacked' By 'Bad Hombres' Coming Across The Border

In an interview with a right-wing television network today, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump warned that America may not survive "being attacked" by “bad hombres and bad dudes” coming into the country through the southern border.

One America News Network pundit Graham Ledger asked Trump whether he would use his “bully pulpit” as the leader in presidential primary polls to address “this attack that’s coming to us every day from illegal immigrants and what we have to do to secure our sovereignty down at the border.”

“You use the word ‘attack,’ and it is an attack, we’re being attacked,” Trump agreed, citing two cases of American citizens being killed by undocumented immigrants that have received a lot of attention from conservative media.

“You look at beautiful Kate [Steinle] and what’s going on like in San Francisco and Jamiel [Shaw] and so many people being killed and hurt badly. And people are coming through the border that are really bad hombres and bad dudes and these are people that Mexico doesn’t want and other countries where they come from, they don’t want them.”

Other countries, he said, are “forcing” these “bad hombres” into America, where they will either go to jail or “go around killing people in our streets.”

“Another four years, another eight years of this kind of stuff, and we’re not going to have a country anymore,” he added.

Trump told Ledger that running for president was “not anything that I wanted to do” but that he couldn’t stand by as “the Constitution of this country has been absolutely riddled with bullets from the Obama administration.”

Ledger, for one, was very impressed by Trump’s self-sacrifice, declaring that the billionaire was doing his “duty” in following his “calling” to run for president, just like the men who enlisted in the military in World War I and World War II.

Jonathan Falwell: Gay Marriage Will Legalize Bestiality & Pedophilia

Seeing that GOP congressmen and Religious Right leaders alike have appeared on Rick Wiles’ insane conspiracy theory radio program “Trunews,” we weren’t that surprised that his guest yesterday was Jonathan Falwell, Jerry Falwell’s son and successor at the pulpit of Thomas Road Baptist Church.

Falwell warned Wiles that the Supreme Court’s recent decision on marriage equality means that “I can marry a child” or “I can marry an animal” because America is making law based on “whatever seems to be popular.”

The conservative televangelist said that gay marriage can be reversed, just like America ended “the horrors of slavery.”

Falwell also predicted that the government will force pastors to perform same-sex marriages, alleging that Couer d’Alene, Idaho, has already threatening pastors with fines and jail time if they refuse to officiate same-sex couples’ weddings. The claim that Couer d’Alene authorized such a measure is actually a myth propagated by right-wing activists.

Linda Harvey: Obama And Clinton 'Pushing A Deviant Agenda' Abroad

Mission America’s Linda Harvey is steamed that the Obama administration has committed to fighting laws criminalizing homosexuality, and she is particularly upset that the president criticized a Kenyan law making homosexuality an offense punishable by a 14-year jail sentence.

Harvey took to WorldNetDaily today to blast “Obama’s obsession with exporting the ‘LGBT’ agenda,” claiming that “Obama and his administration don’t seem to care about the inevitable harm to children and families” that such a policy will cause.

Harvey also criticized Hillary Clinton, who made combating anti-LGBT bias a centerpiece of her policy program as secretary of state, for supposedly “pushing a deviant agenda” with the help of those “who seek to destroy faith and families.”

Among the important questions America puts before presidential candidates should be this: “Will you pledge to stop using the executive branch to spread inaccurate, divisive homosexual propaganda to other nations?”

Obama’s obsession with exporting the “LGBT” agenda came up again recently when he visited his ancestral country of Kenya and used his speech to plead the standard victimhood narrative, that it’s wrong to “discriminate” against harmless inborn differences that aren’t hurting anyone. Yet this denial of reality is unpersuasive to those who know better.

Obama and his administration don’t seem to care about the inevitable harm to children and families. In Kenya, elsewhere in Africa and globally, the U.S. pressure on vulnerable populations is enormous.

Our State Department under Hillary Clinton even started a private-public program, the Global Equality Fund, to plant grass-roots homosexual activists to organize for this “human right.” Obama just appointed a new envoy for global “LGBTI” rights, Randall Berry, who has already offended Christian majorities in nations like Jamaica.



The Hillary Clinton-initiated Global Equality Fund has become an arm of U.S. foreign policy. The GEF, with private advocacy donors (like Arcus, which gave $1 million in 2012), uses the imprimatur of the U.S. State Department to browbeat poor countries into embracing homosexual and transgender behavior, enacting same-sex “marriage” and encouraging these behaviors among youth. The radical Human Rights Campaign is also a donor.

Thankfully, many African countries are standing strong and resisting threats by the U.S. to withhold both foreign aid and assistance in fighting terrorism.

Here’s a question for Hillary Clinton: “If you are elected, how large do you anticipate the Global Equality Fund would become, and how much would George Soros, Kevin Jennings and the Human Rights Campaign contribute?”

Imagine what liberals would say if the BATF conducted programs funded by the National Rifle Association.

Our government’s goal in Africa should be humanitarian aid and assistance in fighting terrorism, not pushing a deviant agenda. And certainly not with the help of Kevin Jennings and others who seek to destroy faith and families.

WorldNetDaily: Gay Marriage Will Lead To Divine 'Obliteration' Of America

Marriage equality may cause God to order the “obliteration” of America, at least according to WorldNetDaily.

As WND news editor Leo Hohmann explains today in his report, “Why Did God Order Obliteration of Ancient Canaanites?,” Canaanite approval of homosexuality is the reason that “God ordered the Israelites to wipe out the Canaanite society.”

“Isn’t it interesting that one of the oldest known references to homosexual contracts sanctioned by a government and society references a society for which God ordered its total destruction?” Carl Gallups told Hohmann. “Not only that, but God gave the reason for its destruction as being ‘defiled’ and worthy of ‘vomiting out its inhabitants.’”

Gallups added that “the current U.S. administration is exporting the Sodom spirit, in some cases by threat and force,” a development that he called a “prophetic end-time occurrence” proving that “we are living in the days of God’s final warning.”

Hohmann also spoke to anti-LGBT author Michael Brown, who alleged that homosexuality was responsible for Noah’s flood.

Has the U.S. Supreme Court placed America on a collision course with the Almighty with its 5-4 decision to legitimize same-sex marriages, putting it on equal footing with traditional marriage in all 50 states?



“Interestingly, there are three rabbinic texts from the early centuries A.D. that speak of the pagans and/or the people of Noah’s day practicing same-sex ‘marriage.’ If these traditions are accurate – and one must wonder where they came from – that would mean that societies that did make such radical changes didn’t survive,” Brown told WND.



Carl Gallups, a Baptist minister, pastor, author and radio talk-show host, has also devoted much time to this issue in light of the Supreme Court’s June 26 ruling.

He believes the fact that homosexuality was not only practiced widely in ancient Canaan but that authorities apparently gave it their stamp of approval may well have been why God ordered the Israelites to wipe out the Canaanite society.

“Isn’t it interesting that one of the oldest known references to homosexual contracts sanctioned by a government and society references a society for which God ordered its total destruction? Not only that, but God gave the reason for its destruction as being ‘defiled’ and worthy of ‘vomiting out its inhabitants,’” said Gallups, author of “Final Warning: Understanding the Trumpet Days of Revelation.”

"So, not only do we have the plain-text biblical example of Sodom and Gomorrah, but we also have the biblical/historical/Midrash example of the Canaanites," Gallups said.

Not only has the Supreme Court passed an unconstitutional and illegal gay marriage law, but also the current U.S. administration is exporting the Sodom spirit, in some cases by threat and force, throughout the world of its reach and influence."

The latest example of this exportation of the "Sodom spirit," Gallups notes, took place last week when President Obama publicly chastised the president of Kenya for not promoting the homosexual agenda in his country. As is the case in almost every African country, the mere practice of homosexuality in Kenya remains a serious crime, and there is no "marriage equality" offered to non-heterosexuals.

Like the ancient Canaanites, Gallups believes the U.S. will ultimately encounter serious consequences for its sanctioning of same-sex marriage and its exportation of the practice abroad.

"If this is not a prophetic end-time occurrence slapping us in the face – I don’t know what is," he said. "I still maintain we are living in the days of God’s final warning. We had best take heed, lest the Creator of life, marriage, and sexuality render His Court’s decision upon us – and it won’t be pretty."



"This is why God has so much to say about how we use our sexual nature – and especially when we degrade His plan for sexuality and marriage by engaging in, celebrating, and legalizing homosexual activity and marriage," Gallups said. "It never, in the entirety of history, has ended well for individuals, much less a society, that has disobeyed the Word of God in this matter."

WorldNetDaily Catches Obama's 'Demonic Spirit' In Kenya

WorldNetDaily, the same right-wing outlet that broke the earthshattering story about how a housefly that landed on President Obama proved that he is possessed by demons, has found new evidence of Obama’s Satanic nature: a grey blur, likely a boom mic, seen in a video of Obama exiting Air Force One on his recent trip to Kenya.

Start watching at the 7:50 mark in this video to see the “demon” for yourself:

Joe Kovacs, WND’s executive news editor, says he is just asking the question: “Is this a demon racing in front of Obama?

Kovacs interviews a “concerned woman” who “saw a demon run by” Obama, and reports that a “video editor who examined the footage” also wondered if it was “some type of other-worldly being.”

The brave journalist also notes that a “freeze-frame analysis indicates the flash may appear to have a head and shoulders as it scurries along.”

While the notorious birther outlet may not yet have uncovered Obama’s secret Kenyan birth certificate, at least now they have found his Kenyan demonic spirit.

He’s the U.S. president who has hadflies land on his face numerous times, prompting some to call him “Lord of the flies.”
And he has been buzzed by bees.

And has had rodents running across his presidential podium while addressing reporters.

His face has even been compared to the character of Satan the devil in “The Bible” TV miniseries .

And now, a mysterious flash during Barack Obama’s visit to his ancestral homeland of Kenya last month has some people wondering once again about the president’s ties to strange phenomena.

The latest case involves video of Obama’s arrival July 24 in Kenya’s capital city of Nairobi, posted by Kenya CitizenTV.

As the president smiles and shakes hands with those greeting him at the airport after he descends from Air Force One, a strange image races across the screen from right to left, seemingly directly in front of Obama.

“My husband and I were watching this and I told him I saw a demon run by,” a concerned woman told WND.

“He didn’t believe until I rewound the video. Please take a look!”



The translucent, gray figure rushes by in the blink of an eye, and is difficult to discern at regular speed. A freeze-frame analysis indicates the flash may appear to have a head and shoulders as it scurries along.

Of course, there's a variety of possible explanations for the mystery, including a camera flash, a reflection, an out-of-focus person, a boom microphone, a bird, an insect, a glitch in the video or the always popular optical illusion.

A video editor who examined the footage told WND: "From a video editor's standpoint, it could just be some sort of glitch. However, there doesn't seem to be any logical reason as to why this glitch would appear as the rest of the video seems to be functioning fine. The image does look like some type of other-worldly being, but I'm sure everyone's own imagination will conjure up what they would like it to be."

Sandy Rios: 'Black Criminals' Targeting 'White Men,' Just As Planned Parenthood Trying To 'Do Away With Minorities'

American Family Association official Sandy Rios reacted to the shooting of a Memphis police officer yesterday by embarking on an “all lives matter” discourse in which she explained that racism goes both ways because “we have a lot of black men targeting … white men and white people,” just as Planned Parenthood “seems to target minority communities” in an effort to “do away with minorities.”

Just as the Charleston church shooting was “a white racist shooting black people,” she said on her American Family Radio program, “now we have a lot of black men targeting, it seems to me, okay, this is going to be a controversial statement, but there do seem to be a lot of acts of violence from black criminals to white men and white people.”

“But all lives matter,” she said. “All lives matter. That’s why, the whole abortion issue, Planned Parenthood seems to target minority communities more than any, whether it’s Hispanic or black. And that’s not an accident, that was part of their founding charter, to do away with minorities.”

Some Questions for the Republican Candidates

As the leading Republican presidential candidates prepare to take the stage on Thursday for the first official presidential debate, we know that they all share a common goal of promoting an far-right agenda in the White House.

We don’t expect to get much clarity on the Republicans’ extreme positions on Thursday. But if we had the chance to moderate the debate, here’s some of the questions we’d ask each of the candidates:

  • Jeb Bush: Why are you catering to the anti-immigrant base of the Republican Party by condemning undocumented immigrants to second class status through denying them any path to citizenship?
  • Scott Walker: You have an abysmal record when it comes to the environment and fighting against climate change. But just like you’ve punted on so many other critical questions, you’ve never actually told us your position on climate change. So, do you deny the science of climate change or do you accept that it’s a reality that must be addressed?
  • Mike Huckabee: You’ve compared Obama and abortion rights to the Nazis and their genocide. How and why did you think that was appropriate?
  • Ted Cruz: Why did you cook bacon on a machine gun?
  • Ben Carson: You’ve compared Obamacare to slavery. How is ensuring access to quality, affordable healthcare – as the ACA does – like slavery in any way?
  • Marco Rubio: This past April, before the Supreme Court ruled on marriage equality, you said that anyone who believes that gay people have a constitutional right to marriage has a “ridiculous and absurd reading of the U.S. Constitution.” Is that still your belief today?
  • Rand Paul: In a talk you once explained that while direct cheating is off the table, “I would sometimes spread misinformation. This is a great tactic.” What are some examples of times that you’ve “misinformed” the American people?
  • Donald Trump: How does deporting 11 million undocumented immigrants or denying spousal rape make America great again?

Liberty Counsel: Marriage Equality Imposes Unconstitutional 'Religious Test' For Public Office

The right-wing legal group Liberty Counsel has been encouraging public officials from county clerks to governors to ignore the Supreme Court’s decision striking down gay-marriage bans nationwide, and as part of this work is representing Kim Davis, a Kentucky clerk who is refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples.

Liberty Counsel’s main argument in the Kentucky case is that Davis’ religious liberty is being violated because she is being forced to do her job and issue licenses for legal marriages between people of the same sex.

In fact, LC argues in a recent court filing, marriage equality actually imposes an unconstitutional “religious (or anti-religious) test for holding office” because people like Davis who don’t want to issue marriage licenses to gay couples aren’t allowed to refuse to do so.

WorldNetDaily summarizes LC’s argument:

They want, the court filing explains, “to induce irreversible and substantial harm to the religious conscience of Davis.”

“If Davis’ religious objection cannot be accommodated under the circumstances of this case, then elected officials have no real religious freedom when they take public office,” Staver warned.

The brief argues, “There is no constitutional right to have a particular person authorize a SSM license and affix their imprimatur to that permanent public record, especially if that person holds deep religious convictions prohibiting her from participating in and approving of SSM.”

It continued, “Contrary to plaintiffs’ insatiable demands, such individual rights and freedoms so fundamental to liberty are neither surrendered at the entry door of public service nor waived upon taking an oath of office. To suggest otherwise creates a religious (or anti-religious) test for holding office – which the United States and Kentucky Constitutions expressly forbid.”

Anti-Immigrant Sheriff Claims Arpaio Lawsuit Is Attempt To Distract From Obama 'Scandals'

Thomas M. Hodgson, the Bristol County, Massachusetts sheriff who organized a sparsely attended anti-immigrant rally at the U.S. Capitol last year, defended Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio during a radio interview today, saying racial profiling charges against Arpaio are part of the Obama administration’s attempt to vilify “the people who are coming forward and telling the truth to the American people.”

Hodgson joined American Family Association official Sandy Rios on her radio program this morning, where he alleged that the case against Arpaio is just an attempt to distract Americans from Obama administration “scandals.”

“It’s a trend we’ve seen, actually, from this administration with regards to all law enforcement,” he said. “It seems that the people that are doing their job, who are standing up for what’s right are vilified, they’re attacked. We’ve seen it with the IRS scandal, we’ve seen it with all kinds of scandals where the administration was sort of trying to direct attention away from what they were doing and vilifying the people who were coming forward and telling the truth to the American people.”

A Justice Department investigation has found “a pattern or practice of unlawful discriminatory police conduct directed at Latinos in Maricopa County” under Arpaio’s leadership.

Arpaio, the self-proclaimed “toughest sheriff in America,” admitted in March to violating a court order “by continuing to allow sheriff's deputies to make traffic stops based on suspicions about individuals' immigration status.”  He offered to apologize and asked county officials to create a $350,000 fund meant to compensate those he harmed.

Rick Wiles: Texas Will Face Nuclear Attack In Next Jade Helm Training

In the run-up to the Jade Helm 15 military training exercise, “Trunews” host Rick Wiles predicted that the military would use the exercise to pave the way for a “two-month-long Night of the Long Knives,” “a round-up of patriotic men,” an illegal Obama third term and possibly a nuclear EMP attack.

Obviously, none of those things have happened, but last week the End Times prophet explained that such events will actually occur during Jade Helm 16.

Wiles, while speaking with Nathan Leal of Watchman’s Cry ministries about how Leal’s dreams foretell “divine judgment” on the U.S., alleged that the government is “going to go after Texas” (much like it tried to nuke Charleston, South Carolina) because it is the state most resistant to a federal takeover.

“I believe that they would level the state of Texas, I believe they would use an EMP against Texas,” Wiles said. Leal told Wiles that his dreams about Jade Helm, a possible civil war and the Alamo have confirmed the radio host’s warnings: “Write that down for the record, this is a warning from the Holy Spirit.”

Wiles said that Christians should avoid taking part in the impending violence “because this is God’s judgment on the land that this civil war is coming.”

“2009, when Obama went into the White House, I told our radio audience, this man, before he leaves the White House, he will take this country to civil war,” he said.

Wiles also warned listeners to flee America: “This is the time that you have to get out…. The violence will come next year and what I am telling my audience is, don’t fear Jade Helm 15 but beware Jade Helm 16.”
