In an interview with Newsmax today, conservative activist Star Parker — who has spent this week repeatedly accusing President Obama of “verbal rape” — attacked the president for his comments about the attack on a Jewish deli in Paris, saying that what “the radical extreme of Muslims and this president and all secularists have in common is they hate that biblical worldview, so therefore they hate America and they hate Israel.”
Parker said that the president’s actions have awakened those who “did not notice that we have been as a country taken over by extremists, by secular humanists who have a worldview in statism,” comparing the current political climate to the years before the Civil War.
“Some think the Tea Party is over and it’s not,” she said. “This is a momentum in our society that is not going to blow away any time soon, because most Americans who are the hard-working, who are the diligent, the god-fearing, understand that we’re in a very prayerful crossroads similar to an 1850s, where we can’t go on like we’ve been going for the last 50 or 60 years.”
“I believe that [Obama’s comment] builds the resolve in the American people that Israel’s values are our values, the core fundamental beliefs of America, our exceptionalism, our national allegiance, our limited role of government, our free markets, and our tradition,” she said. “This is what we have in common, and this is what secularists don’t like, and Barack Obama’s a secularist. And, in fact, it’s what he and the Muslims have in common, the radical extreme of Muslims and this president and all secularists have in common is they hate that biblical worldview, so therefore they hate America and they hate Israel.”
Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., is upset that congressional Republicans are using legal action and threatening to cut funding to the Department of Homeland Security in their effort to undermine President Obama’s executive actions on immigration.
Instead, Jones said yesterday, they should pursue impeachment.
Jones told Newsmax host J.D. Hayworth, a former Republican congressman, that members of Congress have a “constitutional duty” to reprove and penalize Obama for allegedly violating the Constitution: “I said that to John Boehner when Mr. Obama made this presidential order, I said why don’t we follow the Constitution, in the Constitution, articles of impeachment? I’m sorry, I don’t like the idea of impeaching anyone, but for goodness sakes when you make those kinds of executive decisions to the detriment of our country, of telling people who came here illegally, ‘You’re now illegal because I just signed an order,’ that’s why we’re in the situation we’re in now, we don’t follow the Constitution.”
Across Alabama, local judges are openly defying a federal judicial order to grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The New York Times reported yesterday that 44 of the state's 67 counties were not granting licenses. The state is a checkerboard, where gay and lesbian Alabamans are locked out of full citizenship across vast swaths of the state based on the whims of local officials.
As many observers have pointed out, this week's events make Americans recall the state's historic resistance to federal court orders striking down segregation. But they show us an image of the future, as well ... or at least the future as the Far Right would have it.
Emboldened by the Supreme Court's distortion of religious liberty in the Hobby Lobby case, some state legislatures are considering bills that would allow government officials to decline to perform marriages that offend them religiously. A number of states are also considering legislation to let people exempt themselves from anti-discrimination and other laws if compliance would offend them religiously. While misleadingly framed as protecting religious liberty, these bills are really intended to allow discrimination and to let conservatives impose their religious beliefs on others.
So what would America look like if we allowed such massive holes to be poked in laws that are supposed to protect everyone? What if lesbian and gay couples were legally treated as outsiders in their home communities, had fewer legal rights than anyone else in those communities, and had to travel anywhere from another neighborhood to another county to find a bakery willing to make a cake for them, a hotel willing to rent them a room for the night, or an employer willing to grant them spousal employment benefits? What if a woman's ability to find adequate healthcare depended on finding an employer and a pharmacist with compatible religious beliefs? What if people's basic rights varied depending on where they were, and upon the prevailing religious beliefs of people in the area? What would such a religiously balkanized nation look like?
It would look a lot like Alabama does today. And it would be ugly.
For decades, the Far Right has fought tooth and nail to impose their religious beliefs through government fiat. They have fought to prevent gays from marrying, to prevent women from exercising reproductive choice, to have public schools indoctrinate other people's children with their own religious beliefs, ... the list goes on. And when they fail at changing the laws to match their religion, they seek exemptions from those laws in the name of "religious liberty."
As People For the American Way Senior Fellow Peter Montgomery has written in his most recent report, that isn't what religious liberty is about. And it isn't a vision of America that is true to our founding principles.
Mission America’s Linda Harvey is urging conservatives to use Valentine’s Day to “promote true love,” which, as she explains in a WorldNetDaily column today, means opposing LGBT rights. She urges readers to mark the holiday by demanding that companies drop their support for LGBT equality and posting “an online comment challenging notions of homosexuality as ‘marriage’ or anti-Christian bigotry.”
“Don’t be afraid to say, ‘Not true!’ when some maintain that sodomy and abortion are the high ground, as is same-sex ‘marriage,’ that children should be encouraged to change genders, that Americans are all racists and that Christianity is hateful,” she writes.
Harvey also tells readers to oppose “vicious feminists” and schools that teach “anti-American, pro-Marxist lessons.”
The leftists love Valentine’s Day. This year, they will exhibit a bizarre preoccupation with the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey,” as America’s notion of “love” is stretched to unrecognizable limits.
But as Christians, we think of love in a different sense. It’s one that “does not rejoice in inquity, but rejoices in the truth.” (1 Corinthians 13:6)
So what can Christians do in 2015 to promote true love?
Despite some disturbing, jaw-dropping events of the past year, and some daunting ones in the coming months, we really aren’t at the mercy of cowardly Republicans, destructive Democrats, vicious feminists and homosexual bullies.
While designers of wickedness present great challenges to American culture, to freedom and to the rule of law, let’s never forget that those who hate godliness are in self-destruction mode.
While we pray for any individuals who can be pulled out of the coming fire, let’s lovingly assist the unworthy causes they espouse toward a sure demise.
The loony left does not represent America, and their ideas are mostly poison. Let me make it clear: I am not advocating civil unrest or violence here (like liberals sometimes do), but in the public square of reasonable debate over public policy, don’t let unhinged voices get away with calculated deception, obfuscation and other evil nonsense. Expose mythology for what it is.
Don’t be afraid to say, “Not true!” when some maintain that sodomy and abortion are the high ground, as is same-sex “marriage,” that children should be encouraged to change genders, that Americans are all racists and that Christianity is hateful. Get ready to say NO and shine the light of reality back at them.
So, how do we do this? Start with fervent and persistent prayer. Then, commit to at least one “push back” activity each week. Make one phone call to a corporate supporter of “LGBT” deviance, or send one email to a pro-abortion politician. Make an online comment challenging notions of homosexuality as “marriage” or anti-Christian bigotry. Be sure to call your child’s school and object to anti-American, pro-Marxist lessons.
Here’s a good place to start: the erroneously named “Corporate Equality Index” of the Human Rights Campaign. This pedophile-founded, multi-million dollar homosexual lobbying group is a pretender to high-minded notions of “equality” and “non-discrimination.” HRC is a vicious bully with an empire built on attacking personal sexual integrity, undermining authentic families, promoting deviance and mischaracterizing Christians.
So consult this listing of businesses that have signed on to HRC’s “gay” agenda, and make a call to one each week. Just ask: “Why is your company supporting the harmful homosexual agenda? Why are you donating to advance same sex ‘marriage’? No one needs to be homosexual, and no one is born in the wrong sex body. It’s a mistake for your company, wrong for your employees and for America.”
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins spent a good portion of his “Washington Watch” radio program on Monday praising Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore and the state probate judges who are refusing to follow a federal court order legalizing same-sex marriage in the state.
Perkins said that he, too, is “not going to listen to these courts that are wrong” when they make a ruling that is “inconsistent with nature itself, certainly inconsistent with scripture.”
The federal courts, he added, “are setting themselves up to lose credibility and put, I believe, our country into a tailspin.”
What is the rule of law? In a free society, a democratic society, the rule of law is generated, over all, [by the] Constitution and general consensus. We agree. And when you go too far out, which this administration has and these courts are, it doesn’t work. An unjust law is no law at all.
And they are setting themselves up to lose credibility and put, I believe, our country into a tailspin. Because I’m not going to listen to these courts that are wrong, when they have taken away the rights of the people and just imposed upon this nation a viewpoint that is not shared by a majority of the people. Even if it was, it’s inconsistent with nature itself, certainly inconsistent with scripture.
Last June, the Supreme Court gave certain for-profit corporations the right to deny women vitally important (and statutorily required) healthcare coverage that offends their employers' religious beliefs, claiming it was simply protecting the employers' religious liberty. Across the country, right wing extremists are seeking to empower individuals and business owners whose religious beliefs are offended by LGBT equality to exempt themselves from anti-discrimination laws — again, supposedly in the name of religious liberty. Conservative Christians aggressively seeking to deprive others of their legal rights regularly portray themselves as the victims of religious persecution.
People For the American Way has released a new report examining the many ways that religious liberty issues are increasingly coming up in public policy debates in communities across the nation. But this isn't religious liberty as it has been understood throughout our nation's history.
Authored by Senior Fellow Peter Montgomery, Religious Liberty: Shield or Sword? examines how the Far Right is working to transform this core American value from a shield protecting individuals' religious freedom into a sword that harms other people and undermines measures to promote the common good.
The report provides vital factual background and analysis to help readers better understand how religious freedom principles have traditionally been regarded, as well as how they are being twisted by a far right movement in an effort to reverse its fortunes as their substantive arguments are increasingly rejected by the American public. These distorting efforts come from conservative advocacy organizations, state and federal legislators, and even a narrow majority of the United States Supreme Court.
This report is an important tool to help understand and confront the Right in public policy debates across the country, as they increasingly seek to use religious liberty as a sword to deny rights to others, and as they continue to portray themselves as victims of religious persecution.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has issued a couple of statements over the past two weeks explaining that if Congress were to target his department’s funding in an effort to stop the enforcement of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, a whole host of programs would be hurt, including “non-disaster assistance grants” to local law enforcement. This raised the ire of a Colorado county sheriff, who wrote a Facebook post calling Johnson’s remarks a “veiled threat” to sheriffs, which has since been picked up by many in the right-wing media.
Among those who are outraged by Johnson’s matter-of-fact statement on department funding is the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios, who claimed on her radio program today that the Homeland Security secretary is “threatening sheriffs." She also complained about a new DHS hotline that allows people to ask about the new immigration actions and report mistreatment by immigration enforcement, and about the fact that some undocumented immigrants who are now able to file federal tax returns will get refunds.
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is thug life,” she declared.
“It is thuggery. It is thuggery at the federal level.”
Last month, David Duke stopped by the white nationalist radio show “The Political Cesspool” to discuss his relationship with House Republican Whip Steve Scalise, who reportedly spoke at a 2002 gathering held by Duke’s European-American Unity and Rights Organization when he was a state lawmaker in Louisiana. Duke blamed the controversy on the supposed Jewish establishment, which he claimed controls the media and wants to throw “European-Americans” into gulags, and which he said sees Scalise as a potential threat down the road.
Duke said that he consistently won “over 60 percent of the popular vote in [Scalise’s] congressional district” in his various campaigns for elected office, and therefore people who condemn Scalise “for meeting with me or voting for me, they are condemning the people of Louisiana.”
Referencing Scalise’s reported 1999 statement that he was “like David Duke without the baggage,” Duke said the congressman “agreed with all of my ideas, but my God, you got to be able to get elected.”
“They think anybody out there who agrees with my ideas, they will destroy them, it’s not going to help you to run like a rabbit with the tail between your legs,” Duke said. “Now he’s really going to be careful, he’s not going to do anything.”
Duke added: “They’re just afraid Scalise is really like me underneath and he may someday be their enemy because just about everybody in my district understands the real power behind the throne in this country, they understand the real ethnic racism that runs this nation and controls our foreign policy.”
Duke, of course, was referring to the “Zionists” whom he claims control both political parties.
“The real problem in America is racism,” Duke said. “Now, that sounds funny coming from David Duke; the problem is racism, there is a racism that rules America, but it’s not white racism, it is what you can just plainly say is Jewish racism, Jewish supremacism. They have literally taken over our Hollywood media, our news media, our entertainment media, our music media.”
Claiming that the supposed Jewish “control of the media” has made African Americans more violent, Duke went on to describe Nicki Minaj as “the most obscene individual, degraded individual, filthy individual I’ve ever heard in my life. I think she’s pretty much rivaled, though, by Miley Cyrus, who is unfortunately one of our own.”
Duke warned that “Jewish power” is sowing political conflict and using mass immigration to throw America into civil war by “getting rid of the people who were the vast majority of America, even though we’re fading fast, that is European-Americans.”
“There is no other question” than “the Jewish question,” Duke continued, alleging that Jews who control all segments of influence will turn America into a “Bolshevik state.”
“We’re moving towards Bolshevism, we’re moving towards tyranny. Every day we’re losing our rights and it’s the same as what happened in the Soviet Union and the day will come when they’ll haul millions of us out to the gulags and die,” he said. “Unless we stand up and defeat them.”
David Horowitz was invited to Newsmax today to discuss a new DHS information service for people with questions about the implementation of President Obama’s executive actions on deportation relief, which he said showed that “we let all aggressors of color get to be victims.”
“I mean, it’s not just the immigration issue,” he continued. “It’s the race issue, too. We had a lynch mob out there in Ferguson for months that spread then to the rest of the country, and they were called protesters, and it’s like there was some hurt inflicted on them. What is the hurt in taking down a criminal like Michael Brown, who’s assaulting a police officer?”
“So the left has successfully changed the equation so that if you’re here illegally, somehow we should be sympathetic to you, and somehow you have rights, and somehow we want to heed your complaints. This is suicidal,” he said.
Later in the interview, Horowitz declared that “the president of the United States is a racist” and claimed that President Obama had appointed Rev. Al Sharpton, the “chief racist” and “chief lynch-mob leader in the country,” as his “race relations advisor.” The president is “backing these lynch mobs,” he added.
Southern Baptist megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress is out with a new book, “Countdown to the Apocalypse: Why ISIS and Ebola Are Only the Beginning,” and shared with Janet Mefferd yesterday some of the signs, besides ISIS and Ebola, that we are witnessing the Last Days.
One of the signs of the impending End Times, according to Jeffress, is the success of the gay rights movement, which he claimed is making people “desensitized” to the persecution of Christians and “will pave the way for that future world dictator, the Antichrist, to persecute and martyr Christians without any repercussions whatsoever.”
According to Jeffress, gay marriage has incontrovertibly driven down the marriage rate and is therefore undermining society.
“It is absolutely no coincidence that last year the marriage rate in the United States was the lowest it’s been in 93 years, and the reason is very clear,” he said. “If marriage is anything you want it to be, why bother to get married at all? Whenever you counterfeit something, you cheapen the value of the real thing, and gay marriage is a counterfeit marriage. What you’re doing is you’re causing all kinds of societal problems where there is not a stable family situation, where there are no marriages, partners come and go, and trying to rear children in that kind of involvement is a prescription for disaster.”
Jeffress and Mefferd also agreed that the book and film “Fifty Shades of Grey” — or as Jeffress called it, “Fifty Shades of Perversion” — is are signs that we are seeing the End Times.
Last week, Iowa-based radio host Steve Deace invited conservative activist Star Parker to discuss her new book, “Blind Conceit,” a collection of her columns in which she argues that liberals are waging “wars against our American culture” in pursuit of “revenge and redistribution, the antithesis of Dr. King’s Dream.”
Parker told Deace that when it comes to fixing America, “the first step would be to admit that there’s good and evil”… and that the evil is progressivism.
“Socialism is inconsistent with the Scripture because the 10th Commandment says don’t covet, and what we have today is covetousness,” she explained. “Somebody has something that somebody else doesn’t have, so now we’re going to hire politicians to take it from them. So now, you’ve violated a couple of commandments, because the 8th Commandment says don’t steal.”
“So, yeah, the first step is we have to recognize that there is evil, and America is at a crossroads between good and evil,” she continued. “We’ve become so secularized that we’ve got this idea of moral relativism and think that there are no natural consequences to the choices that we make.”
She outlined the “three wars on American culture” that she believes liberals are waging: a “war on religion,” a “war on marriage where they told women, you can do whatever you want to with your sexual being,” and a “war on poverty” that “began to pay people for their sin, if you will, the natural consequences of illicit sexual bad behavior.”
“In their own blind conceit, they’re so arrogant, they can’t even see how evil or wicked they are. They actually believe that progressivism and socialism in a free country is going to work,” she said.
World Congress of Families spokesman Don Feder is joining in the Religious Right outrage over the National Prayer Breakfast speech in which President Obama dared to mention that many people have distorted the Christian faith to justify violence and oppression, much like how groups such as ISIS distort Islam today. While Feder wonders in a column published yesterday if Obama will become an “imam” or “Sheik of Chicago” in “the coming Caliphate,” he writes that he does not believe Obama is a Muslim.
Instead, Feder claims that Obama is “slavishly devoted to Dar-al-Islam” because he’s a “devout leftist” who reveres Islam “as the religion of the downtrodden and the dispossessed.”
“So good progressives are able to overlook its flagrant misogyny, rampant homophobia and genocidal rage,” Feder writes. “A shared hatred of the West trumps everything else.”
Obama’s leftism and powers as president, according to Feder, make him even more dangerous than Islamist extremists: “That Barack Hussein Obama commands the US military, controls the apparatus of national security and has the world’s bulliest pulpit, makes him far more dangerous to the survival of Western Civilization than Jihad-this, Islam-that, and Abu-whatever.”
Our president has been called Islam's principal Western apologist. But that's like calling the Chief Rabbi of Israel kind of Jewish, or Lindsay Lohan sort of messed up. In fact, from his 2009 Cairo speech to last Friday's Sermon on the Mosque, it's been nothing less than slavish devotion: the Muslim Brotherhood is "secular," the Ft. Hood massacre was "workplace violence," the Taliban is "an armed insurgency" (but not terrorist), initially, Benghazi was caused by an anti-Mohammed video, "the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam," the muezzin's call to prayer is "one of the sweetest sounds on earth," and on and on ad nauseam.
In the coming Caliphate, maybe he'll be the Sheik of Chicago or the Imam O.
At the Prayer Breakfast, after his faux Buddhist greeting to the Dali Lama, the alleged leader of the Free World pledged to "push back against those who would distort our religion for their nihilist ends." Which religion?
Lest you think the president was referring to the religion of peace (against whose adherents we occasionally undertake overseas contingency operations), Obama was quick to point out that around the world, every faith has, from time to time, been "hijacked" by violent extremists "for their own murderous ends."
Obama is so slavishly devoted to Dar-al-Islam, that many think he's a Moslem himself. To the contrary, he is a devout leftist.
Two strains converge to shape Obama's attitude toward Islam. There's nostalgia – for his Moslem boyhood in Indonesia (so innocent, so carefree, so harmonious) and his absentee dad – combined with the left's worldview.
The left views Islam as the religion of the downtrodden and dispossessed – the faith of victims of Western colonialism and capitalist exploitation. Besides, it's so charming and quaint. So good progressives are able to overlook its flagrant misogyny, rampant homophobia and genocidal rage. A shared hatred of the West trumps everything else.
The liberation theology preached at Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United Church is a consequence of the left's Islamophilia, as is Obama's anti-Zionism.
That Barack Hussein Obama commands the US military, controls the apparatus of national security and has the world's bulliest pulpit, makes him far more dangerous to the survival of Western Civilization than Jihad-this, Islam-that, and Abu-whatever.
An exasperated Pat Robertson challenged President Obama and 99 percent of climate scientists over their belief in climate change today since, after all, the televangelist explained, it is snowing in Boston.
Robertson claimed that the Boston snowstorm helps prove that climate change is a myth created by scientists who have been manipulating data, even though climate change has actually been linked to growing storm intensity.
“The president goes in an interview with Vox, whatever that is, and said our real challenge is not ISIS, it’s not terrorists, it is global warming,” Robertson said. “Go to Boston, Mr. President.”
In an interview on Newsmax today, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee complained about President Obama’s National Prayer Breakfast speech — in which he said that groups like the so-called Islamic State “pervert and distort” the Muslim faith — by claiming that the president refuses to say that the Islamic State's ideology is a “perversion” of Islam, and implying that the president has blamed Christians for the group's violence.
“It is just unimaginable why he feels that he has to be the number one defender of all things Islam,” Huckabee said. “I’m not an anti-Islamicist, I’m not. But I feel like I can call something out for what it is."
"And there are many moderate Muslims across the world who are appalled by this," he continued. "Thank god for King Abdullah, thank God for President al-Sisi in Egypt, thank God here in America for Dr. Zuhdi Jasser and others who are willing to speak out. But they’re willing to say something that the American president won’t say, that it is Islam and that there is a perversion of it that is very deadly and dangerous, and that it isn’t Christians’ fault that people are having their heads cut off.”
President Obama and members of his administration, of course, have repeatedly stated that terrorist groups like the Islamic State distort Islam, something for which they get endlessly attacked by the Religious Right.
In an interview with Jan Markell on “Understanding the Times” this weekend, anti-Muslim activist Brigitte Gabriel claimed that President Obama won’t say “anything bad about Islam” because “the most beautiful childhood memories he has” are of growing up in Indonesia and “praying just like Osama bin Laden prayed.”
After Markell played a clip from Gabriel’s recent interview with Alan Colmes, the two agreed that liberals are “deluded” about Islam. Gabriel included in that assessment the president, whom she falsely claimed changed his name as an adult (he simply dropped a childhood nickname), attended a religious “madrassa” in Indonesia (he actually attended a progressive public school for under a year and studied for four years at a Roman Catholic school), and grew up “reciting the Shahada, the praying just like Osama bin Laden prayed.”
“So this is why President Obama cannot bring himself to calling radical Islam, or anything bad about Islam, because in his mind there couldn’t be anything bad about Islam, it’s the most beautiful childhood memories he has,” she said.
What the delusional left is not taking into the equation [is] that Barack Hussein Obama, who actually changed his name to a Muslim name when he got older because he idealized his heritage and his father, and remember, he actually went to Islamic schools as a child, he went to a madrassa.
So part of his homework was reciting the Shahada, the praying just like Osama bin Laden prayed. This is exactly why President Obama said that the sweetest sounds to his ear is the sound of the muezzin, the Islamic mullah, saying that prayers from the minaret. So you cannot take that out of him. People always idealize their childhood, they always look back fondly of certain memories, especially if they were happy memories of their childhood. So this is why President Obama cannot bring himself to calling radical Islam, or anything bad about Islam, because in his mind there couldn’t be anything bad about Islam, it’s the most beautiful childhood memories he has.
Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore is on a warpath to thwart the implementation of a federal court ruling that struck down his state’s ban on same-sex marriage, telling probate judges not to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples even as the Supreme Court has allowed marriages in the state to begin.
Moore, a favorite of Religious Right activists for his anti-gay rhetoric and disregard for federal court rulings, posted a piece on his Facebook page today declaring that same-sex marriage and homosexuality are both wrong just because: “Homosexuality is wrong and we all know it. Marriage of the same sex is wrong and we all know it.”
“This is ground zero in the battle for what God has defined as marriage,” the piece continued. “What He has said about homosexuality. How do you want to leave your country? Will your children, grandchildren ask why did you not fight for what is (was) right?”
The post has since been removed, but we’ve captured it here:
Moore also posted a statement from his wife, Kayla, who leads the Foundation for Moral Law, a legal group founded by Moore. Kayla Moore’s statement cites Leviticus to condemn homosexuality as an abomination and slam the federal court’s ruling.
“Founded by Chief Justice Roy Moore, The Foundation for Moral Law's goal is to be the sword of the spirit for Christians all over who don't want to see Alabama or America become the next Sodom and Gomorrah,” she said. “We will continue our battle against evil, and judicial immorality.”
She called on gay people and their allies to turn away from their “sexual lust” and turn to God: “Today the sacred institution of marriage is being destroyed by the LGBT community and liberal politicians who ‘want change’ as did our President; and they make their rulings based on their emotions and not law. Every human being wants to find meaning in their life, some find it in religion, some find it in material things, certain people find it in sexual lust; however, all they need is Jesus Christ. We as Christians do not condemn homosexuals; instead we point them toward eternal life through Christ Jesus.”
“These are the days of Elijah! There has never been a greater time for the kingdom of God to unite. Recall the story of Elijah, particularly as he stood up to the prophets of Baal,” she said, adding that God is “calling on all of the body of Christ to make a stand against the malignant spirit that envelops our court rooms and society.”
In essence, Judge Granade's ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, is not only in direct violation of the Alabama Constitution, but it also violates "God's Natural Law", as well as the right of the people who voted to ban same-sex marriage in 2006 and won by an overwhelming 81%. In Leviticus, Moses instructs the children of Israel on what God told him, "If a man lies with a male as he does a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them" (Lev. 20:13). And in the New Testament Paul warns that same-sex activity is the result of rebellion against God and leads to destruction (Romans 1:26-27). Jesus died for our sins, but He still calls sin what it is. He did not condemn the woman taken in adultery, but He told her, "Go, and sin no more." (John 8:11).
Today the sacred institution of marriage is being destroyed by the LGBT community and liberal politicians who "want change" as did our President; and they make their rulings based on their emotions and not law. Every human being wants to find meaning in their life, some find it in religion, some find it in material things, certain people find it in sexual lust; however, all they need is Jesus Christ. We as Christians do not condemn homosexuals; instead we point them toward eternal life through Christ Jesus. However, we are only a small portion on the kingdom of God; Pastors, Deacons, Youth, and Ministers, These are the days of Elijah! There has never been a greater time for the kingdom of God to unite. Recall the story of Elijah, particularly as he stood up to the prophets of Baal. Elijah's story is in the book of Kings. As you read you see how isolated and alone he felt in the culture in which he lived. Instead of conforming to the ungodly ways of his people God told Elijah to stand up and speak for him and he did.
In such times that we live in we might ask ourselves "is God in control?" Well I assure you, God is very much in control, and these days are special times when God is watching and waiting for his people to fight and stand up and speak for Him. Now we are under grace and not under the law, but the righteousness that comes by faith can be no less than the moral law that comes directly from God. These are not the days of God stepping back and allowing our state and society to submit to the rule of the wicked. Rather, these are the days He is calling on all of the body of Christ to make a stand against the malignant spirit that envelops our court rooms and society. The body of Christ, the church, is the grass roots of the Foundation for Moral Law. The sole purpose of our nonprofit organization is to uphold the Constitution and promote the moral and biblical principles to our government.
Founded by Chief Justice Roy Moore, The Foundation for Moral Law's goal is to be the sword of the spirit for Christians all over who don't want to see Alabama or America become the next Sodom and Gomorrah. The Foundation has always stood alongside God's People. We promote the biblical and moral principles that this country was founded upon. We will continue our battle against evil, and judicial immorality.
Filling in as the guest host of Linda Harvey’s “Mission America” radio show this weekend, Dave Daubenmire once again lashed out at the “homosexual activists” whom he blames for an Ohio school board’s decision not to hire him as a high school football coach, claiming that he was the victim of “a public lynching.”
“My crime was I am bold enough to say — as Linda Harvey is — bold enough to say that homosexuality is sin, homosexuality is a deviant lifestyle, homosexuality is destroying the culture,” Daubenmire said. “I was bold enough to stand up and say that and let me tell you something: Satan’s got himself a church, he’s got a church for sure and they don’t back up and they don’t back down and they don’t give a quarter and they don’t stop until they crush your skull. It’s supposed to be the other way around, isn’t it? Isn’t the seed of the woman supposed to crush the skull of the serpent? Why does this battle seem to be going the other way so much? What’s going on folks?”
He said that the “gates of hell” are now prevailing in America: “The Devil seems to be capturing turf that does not belong to him. Marriage used to be the bailiwick, the property, the ownership of the church, it used to belong to the church and we’ve yielded it to the homosexual mafia, the gay lobby in the interest of being fair…when did one’s sin get the right to fairness over others?”
Later in the program, Daubenmire described a recent presentation he delivered about marriage, in which he insisted that same-sex couples can’t get married because they don’t have the right “plumbing.”
“We were talking about marriage and gay marriage as if there can ever be anything other than a man and a woman?” Daubenmire asked. “I said the plumbing don’t even work. What is wrong with us that we would call a sex act marriage? When did sex become love and love become sex? We know better than this, right?”
In an interview on American Family Radio today, Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman claimed that low-income women use abortions “like birth control pills” and compared abortions to “Obama phones,” the name given by a racist meme to a decades-old program that provides low-cost or free phone service to some people in poverty so they can access things like emergency services.
When AFR host Ed Vitagliano asked Newman why “abortions are three times more likely to be performed on a woman with Medicaid,” he responded, “It’s free.”
“These $400 abortions, when they’re free through Medicare [sic], women just go and get them and they use them like birth control pills,” he said, adding that if abortions were more expensive, women would go instead to a “Christ-centered pregnancy counseling center” that doesn't provide abortion as an option.
In fact, the Hyde Amendment currently bars federal funds from being used to pay for abortions except in cases of rape, incest, or life endangerment. Only 17 states use their own tax dollars to fund all or most “medically necessary” abortions for women who are enrolled in Medicaid.
“It’s just like anything else, when you hand out things for free, the system becomes overwhelmed,” he said. “Look at the Obamacare, all the people who are getting it are getting subsidized, the Obama phones, etc. So as soon as you start giving something out you’re going to get more of it.”
