Huelskamp: Supreme Court Legalized Polygamy

Yesterday, while speaking with Janet Mefferd, Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) expanded on his claim that the Supreme Court Justices who ruled on Prop 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act should’ve flunked law school.

Huelskamp said Justice Anthony Kennedy’s decision on DOMA was “outrageous” and based on smearing gay rights opponents: “If you’re writing for the left and you’re not gonna follow the Constitution you have to make it up as you go along so you inject name-calling into a constitutional decision, I mean that’s an outrageous decision.”

He also called Chief Justice John Roberts’ ruling on Prop 8 “crazy” and described it as an example of left-wing bias. Huelskamp even argued that the DOMA ruling effectively tossed out state laws barring marriages between a mother and her daughter, adding that “polygamy should be allowed under this decision.”

“What’s the impact on our children? That’s what the left doesn’t care about,” Huelskamp said, repeating his earlier claim that “children will be hurt” by the rulings. “That’s why this is showing up in these decisions that you know what just because two adults or three adults desire one thing that doesn’t mean it’s best for our children.” 

The congressman also told Mefferd that Republicans are too timid in their opposition to gay rights and should also focus on the “fiscal impact” of gay marriage and what he believes is the legalization of polygamy: “There’s a real big fiscal impact, we’re going to extend 1,100 benefits to homosexual and polygamous couples, perhaps, what’s the impact on that?”

Chipping Away at Choice: Five Growing Threats to Women’s Healthcare Access and Autonomy

The “War on Women” currently being waged by conservatives in the U.S. Congress and state legislatures is well documented. From attacking contraception to insulting rape survivors to threatening funding for reproductive healthcare, anti-choice legislators and activists are staging an assault on women’s health, privacy and autonomy.

Ex-Gay Pride Month to Push for Congressional Resolution, Organizing Music Video Contest

Voice of the Voiceless, the “ex-gay” group led by DL Foster and Christopher Doyle, is working with the Family Research Council to host the upcoming Ex-Gay Pride Month dinner. As Doyle explained in an interview with Janet Mefferd yesterday, attendees will lobby Congress to “pass a resolution for tolerance for the ex-gay community” and condemn its supposed persecution at the hands of gay rights supporters. He also wants Congress to approve a resolution sanctioning sexual orientation conversion therapy, which is rejected and deemed dangerous by all major psychological organizations, and to oppose state efforts to limit conversion therapy on minors. 

Ex-Gay Pride Month is also organizing a music video contest to find “a voice that sings about the struggles and victories of ex-gays”: 

Ex-Gay Pride Leader: Gays Like Slave Owners, Ku Klux Klan

DL Foster, a keynote speaker at the Family Research Council’s Ex-Gay Pride Month, is unhappy with all the attention surrounding the event. In a new blog post, he compares being gay to being a slave and likens ex-gay activists like himself to Harriet Tubman…while painting gay rights advocates as modern-day slave holders.

Thus, I’ll be publishing a series of articles on the parallels of slavery our forefathers faced from white slaveowners and their supporters in politics. They hated escaped slaves and did everything they could to stop them. I’ll discuss how anti-EXhomosexual gay activists have become the new oppressors, driven by their hatred of former homosexuals. I’ll highlight brave abolitionists who risked much to help freed slaves and how pastors can help freed homosexuals stay free by creating safety networks. Finally, I will talk about how EXGLBT can work together to expand the promise of freedom for all.

“I freed a thousand slaves and I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.” —Harriet Tubman

The parallel of Harriet Tubman’s statement hit me really hard. Like the unflinching Mrs. Tubman, Ive led many homosexuals out of that slavery into the freedom of holiness. But it comes with the sobering realization that many more will never be free simply because they refuse to acknowledge the bondage of their sin.



The same prayer and faith in the promise of freedom given by God that brought Harriet Tubman and other EXslaves out of physical bondage, brought EXhomosexuals out of spiritual bondage. But now, our prayers of freedom are being widely mocked by the bigoted oppressors as “praying away the gay”. Our efforts to help other homosexuals gain their freedom are being branded “fraudulent and dangerous”. They highlight those who have fallen back into homosexuality as proof that our efforts for freedom are little more than snake oil tactics.

Interestingly enough, after Harriet Tubman escaped the first time from slavery Sept 17, 1849 with her two brothers, she went back. Its believed that her brothers influenced her to go back because they had familial ties they were very hesistant [sic] to be separated from. Under this new white hot standard of judgment homosexual activists use against EXhomosexuals who return to homosexuality because they experience separation anxiety, Tubman would be considered a failure and a fraud. She would be considered discredited and thus unqualified to tell other slaves they could be free.

But soon after she returned to slavery, she escaped again —without her brothers— to freedom. It was the genesis of her amazing courage to return numerous times to rescue black slaves and lead them to freedom.

In another post, Foster likens gay rights advocates to the Ku Klux Klan and police officers who violently repressed civil rights marchers, wondering if “gay activists will resort to dogs, water hoses and bombs”:

Case in point, two EXGLBT advocacy organizations declared July as “Exgay Pride Month” and consequently planned a celebration event to highlight the contributions and ongoing struggles of American citizens who are EXhomosexual. They made no demands on the gay community and asked nothing of them. In fact this was just a group of people who felt the need to encourage themselves and their families. Fair enough? Nope, not for homosexual activists. The announcement set off a frenzy of attacks. From theBoston Edge to jittery RightWingWatch, the online gay allied world exploded with numerous reports, blogs and oped pieces [sic] about the event. Even NBC News mentioned it! The stories were jammed with missiles named mockery, condemnation, bullying, discrimination, judging, unwarranted name calling, bigotry, intolerance and all the detestable vices homosexuals claim have no place in a fair and equal America. But it became very clear that in the eyes of homosexuals, they are the only ones who can simultaneously engage in such vicious behavior while at the same time pretending to decry it.



Remember, the nonexistence of EXhomosexuals is incontrovertible dogma in gay orthodoxy. Exgays can’t exist because if they do, then it destroys their other parallel lie that all homosexuals are born gay and cannot change. Perhaps this premature shock and awe attempt is because they sense a serious threat to their foundational mistruths. And of course you can couch your fear in shallow comedic bullying:

“In case, you’ve never heard of VoV [Voice of the Voiceless], it’s basically an anti-ex-gay defamation group, or, in other words, a group of self-haters who feel picked on.”

That’s exactly the way the Klan reacted when African Americans showed up to vote or to march for their right to be recognized as full US citizens. If this doesn’t work, maybe the gay activists will resort to dogs, water hoses and bombs. Another favorite tactic of racists were to employ vicious written caricatures of their black victims. Likewise, gay activists use grotestque sexual caricatures against Exhomosexuals (and their supporters)

Buchanan: Immigration Reform Will Cause US to Break Up Like Soviet Union

Pat Buchanan continues to go all-out in his opposition to new bipartisan immigration policy, claiming in a recent interview with conservative radio host Andrea Tantaros that immigration reform will cause the United States to break apart like the Soviet Union.

The Daily Caller posts a clip of Buchanan warning that if “you put 100 million Hispanic folks in the United States,” the southwest will become “as much a part of Mexico as it is of the United States.”

“If they have a different language, different culture, different faith, basically you get two peoples and two peoples eventually become two countries,” he said.

Buchanan went on to offer an alternate history of the United States, which he said became “one nation back around 1960, when all the immigrants who had come from eastern and southern Europe 1890-1920 had been assimilated and Americanized” through the Depression, World War II and television programming. “That brought us all together, and now we’re falling apart,” he said.
 

What you get is a growing disintegration of the country, a fragmentation into different parts. And we see this happening all over the world in the last few decades, where ethnic groups and linguistic minorities, ethnic minorities, cultural minorities, given the pressures of ethno-nationalism, are breaking up countries all over the world. It’s happening all over the Middle East; it happened in the Balkans, where Yugoslavia broke up into seven countries; the Soviet Union broke up into 15 countries.

You put 100 million Hispanic folks in the United States, and say 70 million of them on the southwest border, that becomes as much a part of Mexico as it is of the United States. If they have a different language, different culture, different faith, basically you get two peoples and two peoples eventually become two countries.

This is what I see as the future of America is the balkanization and disintegration of the country that had become one nation back around 1960, when all the immigrants who had come from eastern and southern Europe 1890-1920 had been assimilated and Americanized. We’d all gone through the Depression together, heard radio together, went through World War II together, and American television together. That brought us all together, and now we’re falling apart.

WND: George Soros Behind Muslim Brotherhood and Muslim Brotherhood Opposition

In 2011, WorldNetDaily reporter Aaron Klein warned that George Soros, by way of the International Crisis Group ICG (Soros is a member of its executive committee), aided the Muslim Brotherhood and even authored several articles alleging that Soros was helping the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups.

But now that the Muslim Brotherhood was thrown out of power in Egypt, Klein is out with a new “exposé” on Soros’ alleged connections to their opponents.

Klein even cites the International Crisis Group as a way to link Soros to the new government…the same group which Klein claimed tied Soros to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Essentially, Soros and the ICG had a hand both in the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power and also its ouster.

Mohamed ElBaradei, the favored candidate to head a transitional government in Egypt, was a longtime member of a George Soros-funded “crisis” group with deep ties to the Middle East revolutions.

Soros himself is one of eight members of the executive committee of the International Crisis Group, or ICG.



ElBaradei is also the reported pick of the main alliance of liberal and left-wing parties youth groups that led the anti-Morsi protests.

He is a former United Nations nuclear agency chief and a Nobel Prize winner for his work as head of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

ElBaradei was also a longtime member of the ICG board alongside Soros.

Gallagher: Supreme Court DOMA Decision a 'Declaration of War' Against Half of America

Not content with just claiming that Justice Anthony Kennedy has proclaimed a “fatwa” against opponents of gay marriage, National Organization for Marriage founder Maggie Gallagher is now blasting the Supreme Court for issuing a “head-on declaration of war against at least half of the American people.”

In an interview with Lars Larson, Gallagher said that the court’s pro-marriage equality rulings limit the “democratic rights” of activists who seek to ban same-sex unions and argued that the justices could “not name” where gay and lesbian couples are protected in the Constitution.

Rand Paul: 'Fire the CBO' For Finding that Immigration Reform Reduces the Deficit

Sen. Rand Paul says he neither believes nor understands the Congressional Budget Office report which found that the Senate immigration bill would reduce the deficit, mostly through the new revenues that come with an expansion of the tax base.

The Kentucky Republican told conservative talk show host Lars Larson that he doesn’t comprehend the CBO analysts’ math… and therefore they should be fired.

He said that “we ought to fire the CBO” and “go ahead and just get it done” without paying attention to their fancy, elitist math.

Paul: The bill is going to cost $6.5 billion. How do you spend $6.5 billion and it saves money?

Larson: I don’t know. I asked a Senator about that and said, what’s the logic that the CBO uses that this will cut the deficit? He said that in the CBO’s report it doesn’t actually explain the mechanism. Is it that they think that more illegals made legal will pay taxes, or that their costs will be lower in American society or they won’t use as much welfare? Do you have any idea what they mean by ‘this will cut the deficit’?

Paul: No, but I don’t believe it. It’s sort of like, they tell me they’re going to give everybody free health care in the country and that’s supposed to cut the deficit too.

Larson: Well that was a lie that a lot of Americans bought not once but twice, didn’t they?

Paul: Yeah I’m not sure anybody believes that stuff anymore. It’s partly why we ought to fire the CBO and just sort of tell people what we want to do and let’s go ahead and just get it done.

Joyner: 'Get Ready for a Second American Revolution'

Rick Joyner is once again predicting a “second American Revolution.” In his latest “prophetic bulletin,” Joyner accuses the Obama administration of establishing “tyranny” by “suppressing political opposition and even destroying the businesses and wealth of those who support causes counter to the Administrations.”

He cites the increasingly debunked claims that the White House used the IRS to target conservative groups. Joyner warns that we are “doomed” if people don’t rise up and prevent the creation of “the most oppressive totalitarian state in history.”

“The things our own Government is doing to us now are worse” than in the colonial era, Joyner writes. “We have all been duped, but now we need to all wake up or we may never wake up.”

He accuses liberals of supporting the Marxist police state, which he fears will be realized unless Americans “get ready for a second American Revolution to recover the principles and the freedoms won by the first one.”

We have a growing mountain of evidence that this most basic violation of every American’s privacy is already being used for other sinister purposes, like suppressing political opposition and even destroying the businesses and wealth of those who support causes counter to the Administrations. This is tyranny at its most basic level and the foundation of every police state. If we buy into the good intentions excuse, we are the most naïve sheep ever led to the slaughter.



What our Government is doing spying on Americans through the NSA is appalling. Yet when you combine it with the other cascading revelations about the use of the IRS, the FBI, and the DOJ to undermine or destroy political opponents, we must see that not only is the apparatus of the most terrible police state now in place, but the tactics of a police state are already being used.



All that our country was founded and built upon is at stake, and our fate will be decided over the next few months. We are now facing something much bigger than any Democratic or Republican Party issue. If this is allowed to stand, our Republic is doomed. We will soon be under the yoke of the most oppressive totalitarian state in history, made possible by our modern technology.

It has now fallen upon us to do what our Founders did when they risked their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to throw off the yoke of the oppressor. The American Revolution was not a tax revolt as those who twist history would have us believe. The stifling and increasing taxation was number seventeen on their list of grievances. Far worse for the colonists were things like having their children kidnapped and made servants on British ships, having their property abused and even confiscated, and being treated like an occupied people by the British army. The things our own Government is doing to us now are worse.



Marx detested liberals, calling them “useful idiots.” He knew they were so naïve and easily manipulated that they could be used until absolute power had been seized. Then the liberals and the intelligentsia would be the first to be snuffed out. That has been the case with every totalitarian power to date. Why would anyone continue to think it would be different this time?

Remember Einstein’s definition of insanity—doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results? How is it that those who are supposed to be the smartest get so fooled every time? We should be encouraged that the ACLU woke up so fast to this unprecedented threat. Liberals are actually the most at risk from totalitarian control, but like the Jews in the Holocaust going to the showers thinking they were actually going to get a shower, the same tragedy is repeated over and over.

Idealism is a drug that makes you feel good while it is killing you. There is no political party, group, or single American that is not at risk from what we now have hanging over us. Everything America was born for and stands for is now threatened. We have all been duped, but now we need to all wake up or we may never wake up.



The abuses that have just been revealed about how the IRS was used to target this Administration’s political opponents are already looking like the tip of the iceberg. With Obamacare set to be managed by the IRS, it will put all of our records, health and financial, in their hands and in their control, with the authority to draw from our accounts without our permission. Might that explain why the head of the IRS visited the White House over 160 times in this Administration, three times more than even the most frequently visiting Cabinet member? We would have to be the most blind and naïve people of all time not to see the pattern of where this is headed.



Americans, get ready to arise. Get ready for a second American Revolution to recover the principles and the freedoms won by the first one.

We must also know that, in such times as these, some of the greatest patriots will be branded traitors, and some of the worst traitors can be branded patriots. We must resolve now that we will not be swayed by how we are portrayed by our Government, by our media, or even by the majority of Americans. We must resolve to just do the right thing with the conviction that liberty is worth paying any price to preserve.

If we go down in history as traitors while trying to do the right thing, we can be comforted that it will all be straightened out at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Regardless of what men may think of us now, we must take a stand for what is right for the sake of what is right and for our children. We must not be the generation that lost what so many paid such a dear price to give us. We must do the right thing because it is the right thing, leaving the consequences to the One in whom we have put our trust.

Iowa Religious Right Leader Defends Trump, Praises His Birther Crusade

Bob Vander Plaats, head of the Iowa-based Religious Right group The Family Leader, spoke with conservative Des Moines radio host Jan Mickelson last week to defend his invitation of twice-divorced casino magnate Donald Trump to speak at the group’s upcoming Family Leadership Summit. (The event is also sponsored by the Heritage Foundation’s advocacy arm and the National Organization for Marriage.) After all, Vander Plaats is the same man who tried to get Republican presidential candidates to sign a pledge swearing personal fidelity to their spouses and vowing to make it tougher to get a divorce.

But Vander Plaats insisted that “we’re not lowering our standards by bringing in Donald Trump. Donald Trump is coming up to our standards.” Vander Plaats went on to praise Trump for “being bold and saying some stuff that others just don’t want to say” including his insistence that President Obama “prove to us that you were born here.”

Vander Plaats was previously caught on video during the Republican presidential primary praising Trump’s birther efforts.

Vander Plaats: Trump has made no, I mean, he’s basically said he’s very interested in running for president. Part of our job is to vet. And we’re not lowering our standards by bringing in Donald Trump. Donald Trump is coming up to our standards. And so what we’re saying is, hey, if he wants to have a microphone and to speak to our audience, let’s see what he’s got to say. And I guarantee you….

Mickelson: You are going to have a dump button, aren’t you?

Vander Plaats: I will definitely. If Donald Trump says things that we just definitely don’t agree with, I will speak after him, and I will basically…

Mickelson: You will fire him.

Vander Plaats: You are fired! But he’s an intriguing fellow, and he’s been on the money with regards to international trade and our relationship with China, how that impacts the family. You remember just over the year ago, people were basically applauding Trump because at least he was being bold and saying some stuff that others just didn’t want to say. And even the deal of Obama’s birth certificate, whether people think that was ridiculous or not, at least he said, ‘Prove to us that you were born here.’

Robertson: Facebook Should Have 'Vomit' Button for Pictures of Gay Couples

After warning that the land will “vomit” out gays, Pat Robertson said that he vomits at the sight of gay couples. Responding to a viewer who wondered whether it was sinful to ‘Like’ Facebook photos of same-sex couples, Robertson said that Facebook needs a ‘Vomit’ button for such pictures: “You’ve got a couple of same-sex guys kissing, do you like that? Well that makes me want to throw up. To me I would punch ‘Vomit’ not ‘Like’ but they don’t give you that option on Facebook.”

Robertson Cites Levitical Death Penalty for Gays, Warns the Land Will 'Vomit You Out'

Today on the 700 Club, televangelist Pat Robertson reflected on a recent reading of the Old Testament and warned gays and lesbians that the land will “vomit you out.” Robertson said that Leviticus lists homosexuality as an “abomination” on par with incest and bestiality, “and those who do that in the Old Testament were stoned to death.”

He feared that the US is not heeding the Bible’s teaching that “the nations who were doing these things were vomited out of the land and the land vomited them out.”

“For some reason now the Supreme Court has said homosexuality is now a constitutional right and this decision that was handed down recently by the majority glorifies this activity and talks about the civil rights and all this, well the Bible didn’t talk about civil rights it talked about this was an offense against God and it was an offense against the land and the land would vomit you out.” Robertson continued. “Which is going to take precedence, the Supreme Court of the United States or the holy word of God?”

Of course, Robertson also believes that we should ignore what the Old Testament said about slavery.

Watch:

Keyes: Case for Gay Marriage Same as the Case for Slavery

Alan Keyes believes that Justice Antonin Scalia didn’t go far enough in his dissent in Windsor, the decision which struck down a key component of the Defense of Marriage Act, maintaining that he should’ve argued that gay marriage, which Keyes called a “tyrannically defined fabrication,” is unconstitutional.

According to Keyes, gay marriage advocates are using the same line of reasoning of slavery proponents who argued that “the notion of unalienable rights did not apply to black people” and did so “by denying black people their share in human nature.” “In like fashion, the advocates of homosexual so-called marriage now seek to deny the nature of marriage” and “override right and justice as endowed by the Creator.” Since same-sex unions violate God’s laws, Keyes reasons, it is therefore unconstitutional and allow government to undermine unalienable rights.

The advocates of slavery in the United States often attempted to justify that institution by denying black people their share in human nature. On this account, they pretended that the notion of unalienable rights did not apply to black people, and that they therefore had no rights government was obliged to respect and secure. In like fashion, the advocates of homosexual so-called marriage now seek to deny the nature of marriage. They do so on the excuse of promoting equal treatment for homosexuals. But the necessary and intended result of their advocacy is to deny the family's functional claim to be an expression of human nature, indeed the primordial expression of its social aspect. This, in turn, allows them to deny that the individuals who make up the family are engaged in an exercise of right, according to the laws of nature and of nature's God. Once this is successfully denied, the activities arising from their exercise of right need no longer be respected as unalienable rights, antecedent to all human governments, which it is government's aim to secure.

In what amounts to an effort to overturn the whole idea of unalienable rights that gives rise to constitutional self-government, some elements of America's judiciary have moved to proclaim as law that marriage must be redefined in a way that accommodates homosexual relationships. But this means that a human relationship in no way rooted in the Creator's provision for our nature must be allowed to usurp the name, authority, and rights of the God-endowed institution.



Once this effect upon the unalienable rights of the natural family is understood, it becomes clear that the Constitution is not neutral with respect to the approval or disapproval of same-sex marriage, in the name of law. There is an explicit constitutional prohibition against denying or disparaging rights unenumerated in the Constitution but retained by the people. Since the unalienable rights of the family arise from the individual's commitment to fulfill the natural law by propagating humanity, they are certainly among these unenumerated rights. Therefore, Congress simply did its duty, in accordance with the 9th Amendment, when it moved to prevent the denial and disparagement of the rights of the natural family by judges and justices seeking to replace the natural family with a tyrannically defined fabrication.

Why did Justice Scalia fail to take note of this constitutional justification for DOMA, utterly ignored by the Windsor majority? Why, instead, did he pretend that the issue involved can simply be decided by majority vote of the people in their respective states, as if the human sovereignty that constitutes government, at any level, has authority to override right and justice as endowed by the Creator? In this respect, neither the Windsor majority nor Justice Scalia's dissent shows any respect for the premises that informed the deliberations of the Framers of the U.S. Constitution. Yet without those premises, the declared purposes and essential features of the constitution they devised cannot be properly understood.

The ENDA is Near: The Top Five Religious Right Claims About the Employment Non-Discrimination Act

With the Employment Non-Discrimination Act scheduled for a Senate committee vote this week, here’s a look at Right Wing Watch’s collection of recent – and classic – claims from the Religious Right about ENDA.  Because ENDA is common-sense civil rights legislation that would expand federal employment protections against discrimination to include sexual orientation and gender identity, the Right cannot gain much traction by opposing ENDA on its merits.  Instead, resorting to fear-mongering and lies, they contend that ENDA will lead to everything from the end of religious freedom to sexual assault and death.

Here are highlights of Right Wing Watch’s reporting on right-wing opposition to ENDA:

5. Tony Perkins: ‘Totalitarian Homosexual Lobby’ Out to Destroy Religious Freedom with ENDA (March 2013)

“Like a B-grade 1950’s horror-movie, ENDA is coming back from the dead,” warned Family Research Council President Tony Perkins in a recent mailing. Perkins said President Obama is working with the “totalitarian homosexual lobby” to sneak ENDA into law, and if that happens, “Our freedom of religion will be destroyed.”

“In fact,” says Perkins in his letter, “under ENDA biblical morality becomes illegal.”

4. Steve Crampton: ENDA is Insanity (June 2012)

Speaking about a Senate hearing on ENDA, Liberty Counsel’s “Faith and Freedom” radio host Steve Crampton marveled that a transgender person was actually allowed to testify on behalf of the legislation and complained that ENDA is not about “equal rights” but rather “special rights” for gays and cross-dressers.

Crampton stated that if ENDA passed, he could come into work – “God forbid,” he said – wearing a dress and would be allowed to use the women’s restroom.  “In years past,” Crampton said, “we had another word for this: it’s called insanity.”

3. Andrea Lafferty Cites CT School Shooting to Rally Opposition to Non-Discrimination Policies (December 2012)

Andrea Lafferty of the Traditional Values Coalition used the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, in order to bolster her campaign against ENDA. While speaking to Janet Mefferd about the Orange County, Florida, school system’s new non-discrimination policy that is similar to ENDA, Lafferty said that just as parents are upset about the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting and are concerned about keeping their children safe, they should also be worried about ENDA’s “devastating effects” as schools will have “people with some real issues playing out their personal problems in the classroom.”

Lafferty maintained that ENDA is part of the left’s “open season” on Christians on behalf of “fringe minorities and people that are truly sick.”  She warned that Chick-fil-A restaurants may soon be “forced” to hire “weirdos” seeking to undermine Christian businesses, warning that transgender people are committing “the ultimate act of self-hatred” and need “special medical treatment” rather than job protections.

2. Bryan Fischer: Businesses Threatened by ‘Flaming Homosexual’ Job Applicants and the ‘Return of Jim Crow Laws’ (January 2013)

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer warned in a blog post that “ENDA would represent the return of Jim Crow laws.” On his radio program Focal Point, Fischer warned that if ENDA is signed into law businesses will be faced with a barrage of “flaming homosexual” job applicants. “The homosexual lobby,” Fischer said, “will send a guy in there wearing stilettos, a dress and dangly earrings” in order to provoke Christian business-owners “not to hire him.”

1. Mat Staver: ENDA Will Result in the 'Death of Some Individuals' (June 2012)

Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver is ratcheting up the rhetoric in opposition to ENDA, even going so far as to say that if passed the legislation may lead to child molestation, sexual assault, and death. Staver told Jim Schneider of VCY America on Crosstalk that ENDA “will put individuals at risk and ultimately result in significant damage and even death of some individuals”:

Staver: So you can go into these restrooms or changing rooms, if you’re a man, and want to go in and molest, or watch, or sexually assault young girls. So, I mean, the absurdity of this is just beyond understanding how someone could be in favor of it. This will ultimately, in addition to colliding with religious liberty, in addition to forcing a radical agenda on people, this also will put individuals at risk and ultimately result in significant damage and even death of some individuals.

Kuhner: 'Homosexual Agenda Is Cultural Marxism' and A War on 'Human Nature'

Jeffrey Kuhner, the very anti-gay Washington Times columnist, is out with yet another screed targeting gays and lesbians, this time charging that the “homosexual movement” is leading “a war on religion and, ultimately, human nature itself.”

After insisting that Lady Gaga insulted veterans by “defam[ing] the national anthem,” Kuhner asserts that “aggressively promiscuous” gays and lesbians seek to “indoctrinate the youth” with the goal of turning the US into “Sodom and Gomorrah.”

“The homosexual agenda is cultural Marxism,” he writes. “Same-sex marriage is not just wrong. It goes against nature, morality and God.”

The homosexual movement is transforming America. A great cultural change has taken place. The homosexual lifestyle — once considered a moral abomination — is today not only accepted, but celebrated. The results are obvious and pernicious: The creation of a militant secular America bent on eradicating our Judeo-Christian heritage. It marks the final frontier of liberalism — a war on religion and, ultimately, human nature itself.

Recently, pop star Lady Gaga sang the national anthem at a Gay Pride event in New York City. Holding a rainbow flag, she blurted out: “O say does that star-spangled flag of pride yet wave,” and then substituted “land of the free, and the home of the gay.” She did more than defame the national anthem, insulting everyone who has ever fought or died for our country. Her words embodied America’s new MTV morality. The Stars and Stripes are out; the rainbow flag’s sexual permissiveness is in.

It is not only Lady Gaga. Our popular culture is inundated with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender agenda. Hollywood, television, academia, public schools, the arts, professional sports, many mainline churches, the media and the Democratic Party — all peddle the supposed virtues of “tolerance,” “diversity” and homosexual “marriage.”

Even “Sesame Street” is about to get in on the act. The latest cover on The New Yorker magazine depicts Bert and Ernie cuddling together on the couch. The puppets are watching members of the Supreme Court strike down the Defense of Marriage Act, thereby granting federal benefits to homosexual couples. The implication is clear: It’s time for Bert and Ernie to come out of the closet, and reveal their long-standing homosexual love affair. Leave aside that puppets aren’t real people. Hence, they can’t have sex. Why should 5-year-olds be confronted with such disturbing issues such as homosexuality, same-sex marriage and sodomy, which are grossly inappropriate for their age?

The reason is simple: The goal of secular progressives is to indoctrinate the youth. This is why public schools — even at the elementary level — are pushing the homosexual agenda. Same-sex “marriage” is not — and never has been — about expanding the benefits of marital unions. Most homosexuals, especially young males, are not interested in getting married. They are aggressively promiscuous. For many, a stable, monogamous relationship is the last thing on their minds. Rather, the purpose of same-sex marriage is to legitimate homosexual behavior, thereby making it morally acceptable and part of the social mainstream. In short, it’s about fostering a cultural revolution — one that overturns Judeo-Christian civilization.



The homosexual agenda is cultural Marxism masquerading as “progress.” Its goal is to redefine the family into an appendage of the homosexual movement, seeking to transform men and women into interchangeable parts. Children don’t need two daddies or two mommies. They need a father and a mother. Same-sex marriage is not just wrong. It goes against nature, morality and God. That’s why — like every other attempt at social engineering — it is doomed to fail. The cultural wreckage, however, will be immense. America is sliding toward Sodom and Gomorrah.

Fischer to Immigration Opponents: 'Get Busy' and Procreate

Today on Focal Point, Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association warned that the White House, Senate and Supreme Court are controlled by “lawless, immoral and godless” people and that America’s last hope lies with “conservatives in the House of Representatives; they are the last link between the American people and any shred of constitutional form of government.”

However, Fischer says if the House approves immigration reform, then “that thread is going to snap and we will be plunging at warp speed into the abyss.”

But Fischer said that America could stave off the need for more immigrants if Americans would “get busy” and have more kids: “The whole argument for immigration is, ‘We got to get workers.’ Why? Because native-born Americans simply are not reproducing at rates fast enough to increase the population. So we know what we need to do. Let’s get busy.”

Harry Jackson: Gay Marriage Will 'Destroy Children'

In a column for the Christian Post today, Bishop Harry Jackson claims that children raised by single moms often “turn to lives of crime and violence” in order gain attention from father figures.

Naturally, Jackson connects this assertion to the debate over marriage equality, warning that legalizing same-sex marriage will create “broken relationships” within families that will “destroy children.” He even pushes the consistently debunked claim that marriage rates fall in countries that pass gay marriage laws because people “simply stopped bothering to get married in the first place”:

Is it any wonder that young boys turn to lives of crime and violence, when the purveyors of such lifestyles are the only men to show them any real attention? It is about as surprising as a starving child attempting to steal bread. And no social policy that fails to take into account the deep and legitimate need that every child has for both a mother and a father can ever be considered fair or just.

What does the internal aching so many children have for their missing fathers have to do with how marriage is legally defined? Advocates of redefining marriage constantly scoff at the notion that their policy goals could have a negative effect on anyone. "How does the legal union of two homosexual men affect your marriage?" they ask mockingly.

And of course the debate has nothing to do with my marriage or yours. It has to do with how future generations of adults will approach the very idea of marriage and parenthood. We already have nearly two decades of social experimentation in Scandinavia to draw upon. And it tells us that the broader the definition of marriage is the fewer adults bother with it in the first place. Since legalizing registered partnerships and gay marriage in Scandinavia, an overwhelming number of adults have simply stopped bothering to get married in the first place.

As I have pointed out many times before, words that mean everything, mean nothing. The looser we make the definition of marriage, the fewer people will feel bound to its obligations and constraints. And while broken relationships can hurt adults, they can destroy children.

A Very Anti-Gay Fourth of July

Peter LaBarbara invites you to celebrate Independence Day this year by sending a donation to his anti-gay group Americans For Truth About Homosexuality.

In an email to members today, LaBarbera warns that America “is headed for tyranny” if “Big Gay Inc.” gets its way.

“As we contemplate our unique American liberties and blessings this July 4th -- and their potential to be eroded or eliminated in the name of ‘gay tolerance’ -- please consider giving to AFTAH to help us in our Truth-telling mission,” LaBarbera writes, warning, “The Big Lie of ‘gay rights as civil rights’ has taken hold in America's power centers, including, tragically, our Supreme Court.”

DEAR AFTAH READER,

As we contemplate our unique American liberties and blessings this July 4th -- and their potential to be eroded or eliminated in the name of "gay tolerance" -- please consider giving to AFTAH to help us in our Truth-telling mission. Donate online HERE (or click blue button at right) -- or send a gift by mail of $100, $50, $25 or whatever you can give to: AFTAH, PO Box 5522, Naperville, IL 60567-5522.

Americans For Truth fearlessly proclaims the hard facts about homosexualism -- including some that even many "conservatives" are reluctant to hear -- because we believe in telling it like it is. Now more than ever, AFTAH's role is critical -- because the Big Lie of "gay rights as civil rights" has taken hold in America's power centers, including, tragically, our Supreme Court (see articles below).

We don't have a fraction of the money of Big Gay Inc., and we're not even good at asking for it -- but your gifts to AFTAH go a long way in confronting "gay power," and they are a blessing to us. By our mere existence, AFTAH inspires countless hundreds of thousands of Americans (and people all over the world) NEVER to capitulate to the lies of the Homosexual/Transgender Lobby and its media cheerleaders. The pro-LGBT Left smears us as a "hate group," but if that were true, then God Himself is a "hateful bigot"! No, defending common sense and truth and exposing evil is not "hate" -- but for those who "hate the truth," we are a threat that must be extinguished!

A moral America is a free America, but an America that embraces sexual immorality and extreme gender confusion -- as "civil rights" -- is headed for tyranny. In these perilous times in which "good is evil and evil, good" (Isaiah 5:20), please help AFTAH stand as a brave and honest voice in a darkened culture. Thank you and God bless.

Glenn Beck, Food Insurance and the American Revolution

Many of Glenn Beck’s viewers might be losing a lot of money as the price of gold plummets, thanks to Beck’s aggressive and unethical promotion of gold investment firms. But Beck’s survivalist audience shouldn’t have to worry about buying food if they also heeded his call to sign up for Food Insurance, which offers customers “great tasting, nutritious meals” as part of its “emergency food supplies.”

While reading a Food Insurance advertisement on his show today, Beck got to thinking about the Founding Fathers and the American Revolution.

Much like the Founding Fathers, Beck explained, viewers who purchase Food Insurance also know the importance and value of preparation.

Unlike Egyptians and Occupy protesters who “smoke dope, live out in a park and have sex in a tent with everybody they meet,” the Founders were willing to “sit in a room for years and study and try to figure out: What does freedom mean and how do we make people free?”

“So very few people do preparation, and that’s why there’s failure, you can cut corners but you can only get away with it for so long” Beck said. He then returned to reading the Food Insurance ad: “If trouble comes, are you and your family prepared? Food Insurance offers freeze-dried entrees or dehydrated options. There’s something for everybody and every budget; it really is good.”

Beck: Obamacare an 'Evil' Satanic Islamic Communist Conspiracy to Unleash 'Chaos' on America

Glenn Beck reacted to today’s news that the Obama administration will delay the implementation of the health care reform law’s employer mandate until 2015, saying that it is all part of a plan to “keep delaying this until the [Democratic] party is out of power.” Once the law is fully put into effect, Beck predicted, the health care system will fall into “total chaos.”

Then Beck put it all together: Obamacare must be a plot connected to Communists and Twelver Shiite Muslims, including maybe President Obama himself: “Oh my gosh, who wants chaos? Our enemies; the Weather Underground types; those who are into the Twelfth Imam— I don’t know if the president, he wasn’t born in Iran, I don’t know if they believe in the twelfth Imam where he was born, Hawaii—but they want chaos too.”

Beck even managed to link the whole thing back to abortion rights protests in Austin, Texas, where one woman said “hail Satan” into a camera.

“Everybody who is on the dark side is rooting for chaos. Who is the author of chaos? Let me go to Austin,” Beck said. “If you don’t know what side you are on right now, if you don’t know who you are actually fighting—I told you before, we are not fighting with the president of the United States, we are not fighting with the Democrats, we are fighting evil.”
