Pat Robertson: Child Of Woman Who Had An Abortion Might Worry She'll 'Kill Me Later On'

Today on “The 700 Club,” a viewer sought advice from host Pat Robertson about how she should break the news to her children that she once had an abortion.

“It’s up to you as to what to tell your children,” Robertson said. “I don’t know their level of maturity, if they start thinking, ‘Maybe it would have been us and she might want to kill me later on.’ You want to make sure they are mature enough and old enough to handle this. To say, ‘You’ve got a baby sister in Heaven,’ that might handle it, but you have got to be careful how you phrase it.”

Religious Right Pundit: Hillary Clinton Too Ugly To Be President

Don Feder of the World Congress of Families is out today with a column titled “Top Ten Reasons Why Hitlery Will Never Be President,” in which he calls the former secretary of state “a frustrated, middle-aged feminist who's perpetually incensed.”

Feder, decrying Clinton as an elitist and a radical ideologue, ends his piece by asserting that Clinton will be brought down by “the hideousness factor.”

The “pro-family” activist writes that “Lyndon Baines Johnson was the last profoundly ugly candidate to be elected president,” adding that “voters don't want a leader who looks frazzled or frumpy.”

Think Evita after Botox treatments. Think Madame Defarge on a bad hair day. Think Lady Macbeth with serious issues ("Out, out, damned bimbo!").

To listen to the babbling heads, you'd think the Goldwater girl-turned-Alinsky-disciple could start preparing her acceptance speech (maybe Eleanor Roosevelt will help her write it). "Ooh, she'll raise so much money." "Ooh, women want a woman president." In the immortal words of General Anthony McAuliffe: "Nuts!"

Win the White House? Hillary couldn't win a popularity contest if she was the only contestant.



10. The Hideousness Factor – Lyndon Baines Johnson was the last profoundly ugly candidate to be elected president, and he was a legacy of the martyred JFK. Voters don't want a leader who looks frazzled or frumpy. We're told that Lincoln was too homely to be elected president in an age of television and paparazzi. But Lincoln's homely face had a dignity, a gravitas. If nothing else, we want a face that reassures us, not one that scares us, a la Night of the Living Alinskyites.

Conservatives might as well get in their licks in now. After Iowa, we won't have Hillary to kick around any more [sic].

Christian Nation Activist David Lane Asks Pastors To Pray For Anti-Marriage-Equality 'Miracle'

Christian-nation activist and would-be presidential kingmaker David Lane is urging pastors affiliated with his American Renewal Project to preach about “Biblical Marriage” on Sunday, April 26, and hold a two-hour prayer service on Tuesday, April 28, the day the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments on the constitutionality of state bans on same-sex couples getting married.

Lane’s email letter asserts that Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan should recuse themselves since they “have performed homosexual marriage ceremonies,” but that they have refused to because “secularists lack virtue.” Lane, who advocates for making the Bible a primary textbook in public schools, blames Supreme Court decisions upholding church-state separation for a “complete moral breakdown in America.”

America has become drugged by the cup of Secularism -- a false and wicked religion -- articulated in the Humanist Manifesto, a creed that denied supernatural relevation, and so the revelation of God in Jesus Christ. The "religion" -- as it was called in the Humanist Manifesto (1933) -- was imposed by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1963, an 8-1 decision, in Abington School District v. Schempp. Lone dissenting Justice Potter Stewart prophesied, "...[the decision to remove the Bible from public schools] led not to true neutrality with respect to religion, but to the establishment of a religion of secularism."

That proud and tragic decision has given birth to a complete moral breakdown in America, those doing this to our country must be held accountable. The wise Solomon says, "Where there is no revelation the people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who heeds wisdom's instruction."(Proverbs 29:10) America's Founders laid the foundation on biblical virtue, His Word. Udo W. Middleman, president of the Francis A. Schaeffer Foundation says, "He has told us in his Word how we should live and order our lives, set our priorities, and what sense to make of being human." A Christian nation once, America is now ruled by an oligarchy, a majority of nine, representing, "Vice stalking in virtue's garb."

God defines sin, not the U.S. Supreme Court. Having removed the fixed point in order to judge in 1963, the esteemed Justices, in hubris, decided to challenge God's rule, God's throne, and God's rightful Honor. America is on the verge of learning something that can be learned in no other way, rebellion against God brings consequences. There is no safety in distance from God.

Like many Religious Right leaders, Lane blames the state of America on the fact that pastors have not been preaching or praying aggressively enough:

Why are not the churches of America filled with prayer services, led by senior pastors, asking God for mercy of what we have allowed to a once Christian nation? Who will, by faith, help America's pastors track down the weapons of warfare? Prayer and tears are the Christians weapons of war, very little cannonading and bombardment appears to be occurring in America's sanctuaries today.

Lane seems to think that, without divine intervention, the Supreme Court is likely to rule that marriage bans for same-sex couples violate the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:

For those of the flock who cannot attend the prayer service led by the shepherd, please ask that they stop where they are and pray; we need a miracle.

GOP Committeewoman: Muslim, Wiccan Statehouse Prayers Show Need For Christianity In Public Schools

Last year, the Religious Right largely celebrated the Supreme Court’s decision in Town of Greece v. Galloway, in which the court ruled that municipalities can open meetings with sectarian prayers as long as minority faiths aren’t excluded and attendance isn’t mandatory.

But the protections for minority religions don’t seem to have completely sunk in for everybody in the movement, as was made clear last week at a Republican presidential forum hosted by the influential Iowa conservative group The Family Leader. As we noted earlier, the message at the forum centered on claims that conservative Christians are losing religious liberty in America, but that didn’t stop The Family Leader President Bob Vander Plaats from warning that a Wiccan prayer at the Iowa statehouse that morning might cause God to withdraw His blessing from America.

Tamara Scott, an Iowa member of the Republican National Committee who is also a lobbyist for The Family Leader, struck a similar note in her remarks to the forum, saying that the Wiccan prayer and the invocation delivered by a Muslim imam the previous day showed the need to teach Christian-nation history in public schools.

Scott joked that she had prayed for a storm to greet the Wiccan woman that morning, before telling the audience that the non-Christian prayers at the statehouse showed that “when we’re not willing to defend our God in the public square, we shouldn’t be surprised when others try to replace Him.”

“What you don’t know is that yesterday, the imam prayed,” she said. “That one didn’t make the press. You see, when we’re not willing to defend our God in the public square, we shouldn’t be surprised when others try to replace Him. When we fail to teach it in the public school, the history of this nation, the God mentioned in our Declaration, the Supreme Being mentioned in the preamble of this constitution of the state. And we not only don’t teach it, but we surpress it and refuse to allow it to be taught.”

“We shouldn’t be surprised when others do differently and expect differently and think that religion is just about equality, because it’s not,” she continued. “There’s only one true God. And the Bible’s quite clear about what happens when we refuse to tell the truth and we allow others to tell a wrong truth. That’s where we’re at. We’ve been neglectful, we’ve been very neglectful. So no one even spoke about the imam being there yesterday or the Muslims that were all around the center of the capitol, talking and evangelizing about their way of life.

“Do they have that freedom? Absolutely. But the shame is that so little people know the truth about the heritage, the Christian heritage — I’m sorry, Mr. President, but we are, we were a Christian nation and we were founded on Christian values.”

Bob Vander Plaats Warns Of Divine Retribution For Wiccan Prayer In Iowa State Capitol

The decision of an Iowa state representative to invite a Wiccan priestess to give an opening invocation at the state capitol last week put the Religious Right group The Family Leader in a bit of a bind, since although the group was unhappy with the decision, it was that very day set to host four potential GOP presidential candidates at a forum centering on supposed threats to religious liberty in America.

In the end, the group responded by holding a voluntary alternative prayer service in the capitol for legislators who wanted to skip what ended up being a fairly mundane invocation from the priestess. Family Leader president Bob Vander Plaats warned that it was a “stunning development” with a potential “spiritual ramification” and quoted a verse from Ephesians about spiritual warfare against the “forces of evil,” but didn’t go so far as to say that the Wiccan priestess didn’t have the right to pray at the capitol.

But in a speech that evening to a forum that included likely GOP presidential contenders Rick Perry, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum and Bobby Jindal, Vander Plaats — after declaring the supposed threats to the religious liberty of conservative Christians would be "the key issue of the 2016 campaign"  made it clear that while it was “totally within the religious right” to invite a Wiccan to deliver a prayer at the capitol, it might in fact give God reason to withdraw his blessing from America.

Vander Plaats led into the story by recalling that after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, there was “red, white and blue everywhere,” churches “were filled to overflowing,” and lawmakers of both parties were joining together to sing “God bless America.”

“Almost 14 years later, where are we at?” he demanded. “Just this morning, in the Iowa capitol, which is totally within the religious right, but you had a state representative invite someone to deliver a Wiccan prayer. Now, you may say that’s religious liberty, but I’d say you’d better be careful if you want to start mocking the God that you’re asking to bless this country. That’s a huge concern.”

Jeb Bush Defends Terri Schiavo Actions, Flaunts Religious Right Record In Focus On The Family Interview

Bachmann: End Times Are Here, Thanks Obama

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann suggested in an interview this weekend that President Obama’s “anti-Israel” and “pro-the goals of Islamic jihad” policies have brought the world into the biblical End Times. 

Bachmann made the comments in an interview with radical talk show host Jan Markell in which she also warned that God is about to punish the U.S. due to President Obama’s foreign policy.

Insisting that Obama lied about disputed reports that Iran’s supreme leader issued a fatwa against nuclear weapons, Bachmann said that “our president is as ignorant of Islamic scripture as he is of Islamic history, or he is trying to intentionally lie to the American people.”

“He constantly talks about perverting Islam,” she said, “but we have literally centuries and centuries of theory and practice of the Koran and the Hadith, which are traditions, the works of Islamic jurisprudence, that say one complete, consistent truth and that’s that they want to have a nuclear weapon,” Bachmann said (apparently forgetting that nuclear weapons have been in existence for less than one century).

“There is no fatwa out there,” she added. “This is a lie, in my opinion, that the president is perpetrating. But that’s what we’ve seen, a doctrine of deception. From the time Barack Obama has come in, I have witnessed firsthand a doctrine of deception.”

However, Bachmann saw a silver lining in all of this in that now the End Times are upon us: “The good news that I want to transition to is that, remember the prophets said in the Old Testament, they longed to look into the days that we live in, they long to be a part of these days. That’s why these are not fearful times, these are the most exciting days in history.”

“Every single day we can talk about God’s time clock and the fact that Jesus Christ’s return is imminent,” Bachmann continued. “We have very little time, in my opinion, left before the second return of Christ. That’s good news. Maranatha, come Lord Jesus. So do we despair? The despairing is that we see that our world is not going the way of salvation and the way of blessing, the world is embracing degeneracy.”

Bachmann told Markell that just as some Muslim leaders are pulling for the Apocalypse, Christian pastors must also preach about “God’s time clock.”

Lindsey Graham Says We Need an Amendment to Fix Money in Politics

At an event with a local television station in New Hampshire this weekend, Sen. Lindsey Graham was asked a question about what he would do to fight big money in politics. In his response, Graham pointed to the need for a constitutional amendment to address the Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United:

Well, Citizens United has gotta be fixed. Y'all agree with that? You're gonna need a constitutional amendment to fix this problem. I was for McCain-Feingold, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that provisions in McCain-Feingold basically no longer apply.

You're gonna get sick of watching TV in New Hampshire. So the next President of the United States needs to get a commission of really smart people and find a way to create a constitutional amendment to limit the role of super PACs because there's gonna be like $100M spent on races in New Hampshire — which'll be good for this TV station — ripping everybody apart. You don't even know who the people are supplying the money, you don't even know their agenda. Eventually we're gonna destroy American politics with so much money in the political process cause they're going to turn you off to wanting to vote. [emphasis added]

This is not the first time Sen. Graham has spoken out against the big money takeover of our elections. In March, Bloomberg’s David Weigel wrote about a comment Graham made to a voter — again, in New Hampshire — about his desire to see some “control” over money in politics so it won’t “destroy the political process.”

While voicing support for an amendment is important, when the Senate voted in September on the Democracy for All Amendment, a proposal that would overturn decisions like Citizens United and help get big money out of politics, Sen. Graham voted against it.

So here’s a follow-up question for Sen. Graham: Will you back up your words with action? Will you work with your colleagues in Congress who are already pushing for an amendment and help tackle the issue of big money in politics?

Bachmann: God Punishing US With 'Economic Disasters, Natural Disasters' Due To Obama Presidency

Former Rep. Michele Bachmann appeared on the End Times broadcast “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell” over the weekend, where she claimed that America is facing the wrath of God in the form of natural disasters” because of President Obama’s Mideast policy. Later in the program, Bachmann said that Obama has thrown the world into the End Times.

Warning that Obama “embraces the ideas of an economic Marxist” and “a one-world-government point of view,” she said the president is deliberately weakening the country. Even worse, Bachmann claimed, Obama “in effect declared war on Israel from the United States” and is paving the way for divine “cursing” of America.

“If the United States turns its back on Israel, as our president is doing today, in my opinion, we cannot continue to indulge in the fantasy that the United States will be free from receiving the negative blowback, or curses, in biblical parlance, that could come our way and they could be severe,” Bachmann said.

After Markell pointed to economic troubles, the California drought and “unprecedented snowstorms on the East Coast” as signs of such divide punishment, Bachmann told her that such occurrences “are only the threshold or down payment.”

“If we actually turn our back on Israel, as we are seeing Barack Obama do today, if that happens then I think we will see a scale and a level of pushback in the United States, negative consequences. I don’t know what they are, but I believe that the Bible is true and I believe that what the Bible says is that our nation and the people of our nation will reap a whirlwind,” Bachmann said. “We could see economic disasters, natural disasters. The United States does not want to be in that position and unfortunately the people put into office Barack Obama, not only once but twice, and the people have to rise up against his actions and demand their leaders take steps accordingly.”

In previous interviews with Markell, Bachmann has claimed that Obama is a supporter of Al Qaeda who wants to impose Sharia law and restore the Caliphate.

William Owens: 'Cult-Like' LGBT Rights Movement 'Intends To Brainwash' Us

Conservative groups are once again gearing up their annual campaign to convince parents to pull their children from school on the Day of Silence, an anti-bullying event sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).

In an interview with Breitbart News published over the weekend, Rev. William Owens of the National Organization for Marriage-affiliated Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP) warned that the Day of Silence is part of an effort by the “cult-like” LGBT rights movement “to brainwash Americans into believing that homosexuality is alright.”

“Until we the people join together on the Day of Silence and oppose it,” he warned, “those who support the LGBT political agenda will know they own our youth.”

Supporters of the DOS Walkout include the American Family Association, Concerned Women of America, Faith, Family & Freedom Alliance, Liberty Counsel, and the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP).

In an interview with Breitbart News, Rev. Bill Owens, president of CAAP, said, “What we would like to say is, instead, this will be a day of silent prayer.”

“The homosexual agenda intends to brainwash Americans into believing that homosexuality is alright, but it has become cult-like,” he said. “Let’s make it a day of silent prayer to promote Christianity and faith in general. What’s the difference”

“Those of us who have our faith should be as vocal as those promoting the LGBT agenda – and they are using the same techniques as the Civil Rights Movement,” Owens added. “In fact, they have hijacked the Civil Rights Movement – a movement they know nothing about.”

“But this is yet another nail in the coffin of ‘we the people’ if we fail to act,” he continued. “Until we the people join together on the Day of Silence and oppose it, those who support the LGBT political agenda will know they own our youth.”

Herman Cain's Website: Demon-Possessed Gays Need Exorcisms

Dan Calabrese, the editor-in-chief of Herman Cain’s website CainTV, warned last week that President Obama will keep gay people “in a state of demonic oppression” since he backs efforts to curtail the practice of conversion therapy on minors.

Warning that homosexuality is “demonic” and that a gay person is in need of “a deliverance minister [who] can help him to get rid of the evil spirit,” Calabrese claimed that “it is not Obama’s place to try to keep them in spiritual bondage.”

“Any who supports a bill like this is saying that families who want help for a person oppressed by homosexuality should not be allowed to seek it,” he wrote, claiming that Obama’s stance on conversion therapy is one more clue that the president is a phony Christian.

Since the Bible says homosexuality is an abomination in the sight of God, and yet many people obviously feel homosexual urges, how do you square the two facts? You square them in the same way you explain any person's desire for sin. The person who craves heroin, or alcohol, or unhealthy quantities of food, or to hurt other people - these are all desires of the flesh that are in opposition to God's will for your life. The driving force behind all sin is spiritual - and yes, Right Wing Watch, I mean demonic - and the cure for it is deliverance by the authority of Jesus Christ.

How does that work? It has to start with the person wanting to be delivered. A deliverance minister can take authority over a demon in the name of Jesus, but if the person who is oppressed by the demon wants to remain in that state, then no deliverance minister can stop the demon from coming right back. (Luke 11:24-26) If a homosexual person wants to be free from this desire of the flesh because he knows it puts him in opposition to God, he can be free of it through repentance and surrender to Christ, and a deliverance minister can help him to get rid of the evil spirit.

If Obama has his way, a deliverance minister trying to free people from evil spirits would be forbidden by law from doing so. A person in a state of demonic oppression could not be helped because the official position of the United States government is that this state of demonic oppression is a good way to be, and no one should try to change it.

I don't think Obama understands it this way. I don't think he believes in any spiritual world whatsoever, nor do the people who will portray a commentary like this as odd, weird, crazy, etc. When you're not intelligent or curious enough to understand something, you mock the whole idea of it. Any who supports a bill like this is saying that families who want help for a person oppressed by homosexuality should not be allowed to seek it.

That is not their decision. I don't think any homosexual should be forced into therapy, ministry or anything else - especially since I know it won't help them if they're not willing. But if they want to be free, it is not Obama's place to try to keep them in spiritual bondage. The fact that he doesn't even understands that notion really gives the lie to his claim of being a Christian.

Rafael Cruz Continues To Blame Church-State Separation For Violent Crime, Teen Pregnancy

In an interview with Iowa-based conservative radio host Steve Deace on Friday, Rafael Cruz, father of Sen. Ted Cruz, repeated his frequent assertion that Supreme Court rulings limiting government-sponsored prayer in schools led to spikes in violent crime and teen pregnancy, claiming that until then, the “Bible was the principal textbook in all schools all the way to universities.”

Cruz, who spent the first half of the interview telling Deace that his son is the presidential candidate who most loves America, discussed his work travelling the country to convince conservative pastors to become more involved in politics.

“The church is actually more responsible to the place where America is today than anybody else,” he said. “Because if we go back to 1962 and 1963, two abominable decisions of the Supreme Court. 1962, prayer was taken out of schools; 1963, Bible teaching was taken out of schools. You know, for generations kids prayed in school before starting the day. The Bible was the principal textbook in all schools all the way to universities.”

The “church remained silent” in the face of those Supreme Court decisions, he said. “The consequence of that, we can see it in the statistics. Teen pregnancy skyrocketed after 1963 and so did violent crime, all as a result of taking Bible-reading and prayer out of schools.”

Cruz, as usual, did not mention that rates of violent crime and teen pregnancy have actually been plummeting in recent years, without the imposition of government-mandated religious education.

Cruz also went back to one of his favorite Bible verses, Proverbs 29:2, which he quotes as, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, people mourn.”

“Well, when the righteous, the people of principle, the people of faith, the people that have a moral compass are ruling, we see progress, we see happiness, we see moving forward,” he said. “When we have people that don’t believe any of the fundamental principles that have made America great, we see chaos. But what has happened is this, if the people of principle say ‘politics is their business, I don’t want any part of it,’ then what’s left? The wicked electing the wicked.”

Calling the idea that churches should stay out of politics a “lie,” he warned, “Politics legislates morality all the time. The problem is if we have the wicked ruling, they are going to legislate their wicked brand of morality.”

Pat Robertson: Hillary Clinton Taking Us 'Back To The 50s'

Pat Robertson kicked off "The 700 Club" today by likening Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign announcement to the movie “Back to the Future,” adding that, this time, it is a case of going "back to the past."

"Are we going back to the '50s, is that where we want to be?" Robertson asked, without a hint of irony. "Or in the '70s? Well it looks like one of the candidates wants to take us back to the future."

Cliff Kincaid: Gays And Obama Are 'Making A Raw Power Grab For Our Kids'

Accuracy In Media’s Cliff Kincaid is incensed about President Obama’s recent statement that he supports efforts to bar the practice of sexual orientation and gender identity conversion therapy on minors, writing today in BarbWire that “we are now seeing Obama and the progressives, including the homosexual movement, making a raw power grab for our kids.”

Arguing that measures to limit the pseudo-scientific practice will help “weaken the United States,” Kincaid writes that “a form of ‘conversion therapy’ will be retained, but used on those who resist the homosexual movement’s demands for our children.”

Kincaid explains that “Obama doesn’t seem concerned” about the “consequences of their immoral behavior” since “he was a heavy dope smoker.”

From Obama’s perspective, these parents stand in the way of creating an army of “LGBT” young people who will forever be grateful to the President for standing up for their “rights.” Like the dope smokers in Colorado, participating in what Obama calls an “experiment,” these young people constitute another Democratic Party constituency. Obama doesn’t seem concerned, however, about the consequences of their immoral behavior. After all, he was a heavy dope smoker and look what happened to him and where he ended up.



In other words, a form of “conversion therapy” will be retained, but used on those who resist the homosexual movement’s demands for our children. Believers in the old-fashioned values of one man and one woman marriage will be “re-educated,” or else.



Not only are the rights to freedom of the press and religion now at risk, parental rights are also in jeopardy. We are now seeing Obama and the progressives, including the homosexual movement, making a raw power grab for our kids. The parents are being labeled as the lunatics.

Yet while the Obama administration opposes counseling for young people who may want to change their sexual feelings from homosexual to heterosexual, they have no problem paying for traitor Bradley Manning to physically “change” from being a “he” to a “she.” It is reported that the Army has agreed to pay for hormone treatments, makeup, and female underwear for Manning, who is serving a 35-year sentence for espionage and other charges, so he can become “Chelsea.”

Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of America is getting downright weird. It appears to be a one-way street away from our Judeo-Christian values. Like so many other policies pursued by this President, it’s difficult to see how this one can do anything but weaken the United States.

Donald Trump: Obama Is 'Not A Good Person' Because He Says 'ISIL'

Donald Trump is furious that President Obama refers to the so-called Islamic State as “ISIL,” or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The last word in the group’s acronym, “al-Sham,” is roughly translated as Greater Syria, or the Levant, as Pamela Geller — the anti-Muslim blogger who used “ISIL” until Obama used the same acronym and then decided it was somehow a bad thing — helpfully explains in this map.

“The only one that says ‘ISIL’ is Obama,” Trump said. “Hes the only one. He talks about ‘ISIL,’ everyone else says ‘ISIS.’ He’s got a little reason because there’s a little part of the region — but he’s the only one. Just not a good person and perhaps — go ahead, you can hear it, if you believe it. I don’t know if he has the interest of the country, he probably does, but as I said, I think the whole group, led by the leader, led by the leader, is grossly, grossly, incompetent, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

This led Trump into a tirade about China “taking our jobs” and immigration, claiming that Mexico is “sending everybody right through the border and we’re taking pictures and watching them.”
