Sandy Rios: Detained Ferguson Journalist A 'Punk' Who Was 'Causing Trouble'

On Friday, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association attacked journalists Wesley Lowery and Ryan Reilly, who were detained by police officers while working in a McDonalds in Ferguson, Missouri.

Speaking on her American Family Radio program, Rios called Lowery a “punk of a reporter” who was “causing trouble, trying to make the officer mad,” adding: “These are the men, these are the young men of our country, these are the guys who are going to defend the next generation, these are the future fathers of America’s children. That’s pretty scary, isn’t it?”

Todd Starnes: Obama Administration 'Orchestrated' Ferguson Incident, Made It 'A National Issue'

Only in the world of Fox News commentator Todd Starnes is President Obama responsible for making the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri into a national story.

In an interview with Sandy Rios on American Family Radio today, Starnes said Obama administration officials “are actually orchestrating a lot of this stuff and they turned this local tragedy into a national issue.”

“It appears that the administration is trying to play politics with this,” Starnes said.

Rick Wiles: Obama Using Gay Rights And ISIS To Destroy America

On Friday, “Trunews” host Rick Wiles said that President Obama is “waging jihad” on America through gay rights advocacy and the extremist group ISIS, which Wiles believes is a U.S. government proxy. During an interview with Walid Shoebat, an anti-Muslim commentator who is the favorite of many conservative groups and media outlets, Wiles claimed that “Barack Obama is more than a Muslim, he is a jihadist.”

“He is waging jihad from inside the White House, his foreign policy is 100 percent pro-Islam, he has waged jihad on this country, he has shredded the Constitution, he has defiled the U.S. military by forcing the military to accept homosexuality,” he said.

“Obama is destroying Christian America, that’s his assignment as a jihadist, it is to destroy Christian America.”

After Wiles said that CIA director John Brennan is also “an Islamist,” Shoebat claimed that the U.S. government is feeling the effects of an Islamist “infiltration.” Shoebat added that God is punishing America with Obama’s presidency: “America has abandoned its Judeo-Christian ethics and so God has given them to their own desires and that’s why we have Obama. When Americans wake up and God removes Obama and we have a different president, maybe God will have mercy on us.”

Wiles also alleged that “ISIS and the U.S. government are the same, you cannot separate the two. The U.S. government created ISIS just like it created Al Qaeda, but Al Qaeda wasn’t bloody enough for them so they had to create a worse monster to get the job done.”

After Wiles asked if there is “a super-secret, dark, sinister force above all of this stuff that is guiding this process to set the Middle East on fire,” Shoebat said Obama’s supposedly pro-Islamist worldview is motivated by Satan.

“This is a demonic influence and the more America becomes liberal, the more that kind of influence prevails in America,” he said, warning that liberals will dispose of the First Amendment in order to ban criticism of Islam and “the homosexual agenda.”

Molly Smith: Gay Games Were In Fact 'Very Melancholy'

This weekend, Linda Harvey welcomed to her radio show Molly Smith, the Cleveland anti-choice activist who’s heading up a new national splinter group that thinks that the major anti-choice groups aren’t extreme enough. One of the issues that separates Smith from the major anti-choice groups is her insistence on linking anti-gay and anti-choice activism, a divide that came to a head when she was rebuked by National Right to Life Committee for attacking anti-choice advocate Sen. Rob Portman when he came out in favor of marriage equality.

Smith and Harvey discussed the Gay Games, which took place over the weekend in Cleveland and which Smith contended were “not gay” but in fact “very melancholy” because they featured participants in a “sad and destructive lifestyle.”

Later in the interview, Smith lashed out at the Cuyahoga County GOP for officially welcoming the Gay Games, saying that opposition to LGBT rights must always be paired with anti-choice activism because homosexuality is an “anti-family lifestyle.”

Ex-Gay Pastor: 'Anyone With A Brain' Realizes Gay People Shouldn't Be Treated Equally

On this weekend’s edition of “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell,” ex-gay activist Stephen Bennett joined Linda Harvey in denouncing the “miniscule” group of “militant activists who are trying to turn this country upside down” by advocating for LGBT equality.

“They’re basically marching in with their fist shaking, saying, ‘We demand equality, homosexuality is equivalent to heterosexuality.’ Folks, it is not, anyone with a brain realizes it is not equal,” he said. “People have strayed so far away from God’s design of marriage. Marriage isn’t to be decided by a government or judges or courts, this is God, God is the one who designed this.”

Linda Harvey: LGBT Rights Ushering In 'The End Times Or The End Of America — Or Both'

Mission America’s Linda Harvey appeared on “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell” over the weekend, where she warned that LGBT rights are pushing the world into the End Times.

After discussing the purported dangers that same-sex marriage presents to children, Harvey said that “we’re heading into the End Times, and it sure looks like we may be, or the end of America—or both.”

Harvey also called on cities to ban LGBT pride parades: “We need to go to our city councils and stop these parades. I think they are a blight on the community, they communicate exactly the wrong message: that homosexuality and gender change is totally fine, that it’s a big joke, because there are men dressed in feather boas, lipstick and heels in these parades, this is such a raw message to our children especially. My opinion is gay pride parades ought to be banned and we have every reason to do so, there is no redeeming social value, that’s my belief.”

She also criticized anti-gay leaders for not standing up more aggressively to LGBT-affirming Episcopalian and United Church of Christ pastors, arguing that they need to rebuff “vicious” LGBT rights advocates.

“Pastors are going to have to realize this has a huge impact on America, on our culture and on children,” she said.

“Everything we pass regarding acceptance and embrace of homosexuality or same-sex marriage, it’s not just some little population over there, it is being mandated in our schools and now in our courts and now in our workplaces that you have to embrace this and not just embrace this, you have to honor it or else we’re going to punish you.”

BarbWire Columnist: Have More Kids To Defeat Gay Rights

Tim Brown of the conservative outlet BarbWire writes today that despite recent setbacks, anti-gay activists will win in the long run simply by having more children and shifting the country to the right by changing its demographics.

“[T]heir long-term agenda is toast if people, especially Bible believing Christians, simply woke up and took the command of the Bible seriously when it comes to children,” Brown writes, adding that “the homosexuals have chosen a side in which it is impossible for them to procreate.”

Unlike the progressive movement, which Brown believes is dominated by gays, women who have abortions and “welfare ‘baby mommas,’” conservatives should have more kids to outnumber liberals and launch a “cultural revolution.”

With the issue of homosexuality and homosexual “marriage” on the rise, it should be apparent to anyone looking at the situation that the left is hopeless on their social agenda. By hopeless I’m not saying that they don’t get some of their agenda through. I’m saying their long-term agenda is toast if people, especially Bible believing Christians, simply woke up and took the command of the Bible seriously when it comes to children.



The reason liberals will inevitably lose is because they are on the side that wants the right to murder babies before they are even born. The homosexuals have chosen a side in which it is impossible for them to procreate. They cannot have children. This is why, for many, they petition to not only redefine marriage, which would seek to legitimize them as a family, but also adopt children. In other words, the liberals have built into their worldview self-limitization.

If Christians simply took the command of God serious, in just a couple of generations there would be a mass expansion of Christianity and the gospel of Jesus Christ. The demographics of our society would undergo a significant shift.



Notice that this is one of the reasons for the distinction of the sexes. It is so that they may come together as man and wife, to be fruitful, to fill the earth, subdue it and take dominion. This is in direct contrast to men with men and women with women.

Christianity is losing ground in America because we have failed to take this seriously. In the practice of our lives we have been content to keep our “religion at the church house” rather than live it daily, being obedient to the commands of God. We have adopted the limits on children in the family based on the cultural mold rather than adhered to the Word of God and trusted God for the expansion of our families and His kingdom.



Many welfare “baby mommas” continue to churn out children as wards of the state using your tax dollars. Many of these vote for those that give them money and teach their friends to do what they do in order to get money for nothing. They engage in all sorts of lawless and sinful lifestyles, then expect taxpayers to fund them.

Christians, more than anyone, should see a tremendous opportunity here. Believe God and obey Him, have lots of children, encourage big families, encourage financial discipline to care for them, encourage good education in the home from the people that love children the most: their parents. Above that, encourage others to do the same. If this were to take root and those who read it were to take it seriously and then pass it on to their friends, we would see a tremendous change in our lifetimes and our children would witness a cultural revolution in theirs.

Christian Post Blogger Blames Terrorist Attacks On Gay Rights

This, weekend Christian Post blogger Michael Bresciani pointed out the real culprit for terrorist attacks: gay people.

Bresciani writes that LGBT “perversion” is bringing the world “in danger of judgment” and, in fact, “these judgments have already begun and terrorism is part of it.”

Bresciani adds that evolution and the separation of church and state, which he claims is the invention of Satan, are also responsible for inciting divine punishment.

The sin and failing of Sodom was always homosexuality and it is a sign in today's world that Israel and any other nation that gives in to LGBT agenda have passed the mark and is due for God's intervention.

Homosexuals see injustice on every level of society because they are not fully accepted and their normal is seen by most as damaging perversity. They don't realize that the more their plight becomes accepted as the norm, the closer the rest of the world is in danger of judgment.



The days of warning about judgments due to perversion are over, these judgments have already begun and terrorism is part of it.

Make no mistake the judgments that perversions bring are not exclusive. Modern man has been on a downward spiral in all areas of morality for an entire generation. We are the most highly educated generation in history, but at the same time we are the most spiritually dumbed down generation as well.

We have primed our offspring with a blind adherence to the evolutionary model to explain our origins. Next, we have believed the exaggerated promise of empiricism and technology to solve all of man's problems.

Statesmanship has given way to greedy irresponsible and corrupt politicians who are more than willing to abandon the constitutional principles upon which this nation was founded.

Bringing up the rear are the godless, the perverted, conjoined with the fallen and apostate preachers of the gospel and leaders of the church. The push for the enforcement of the separation of church and state is now being handled by the god of this world himself (Satan) who escapes the notice of most. His real agenda is the very separation of man and God.

Larry Klayman: Obama Wants To Rename The White House 'The Black House,' Start A 'Race War'

Unhinged right-wing legal advocate Larry Klayman believes that President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have created a “race war in the nation.” Klayman wrote in a WorldNetDaily column on Friday that the president and Holder are “racist” against white people “and in favor of their black brothers.”

According to Klayman, the administration is deliberately fomenting and ignoring “racially motivated crimes against whites,” while using Obamacare to “have whitey pay reparations to blacks.”

“At this rate, it is remarkable that Obama has not renamed the White House ‘the Black House.’”

The reality is that we do not presently know who if anyone was at fault in provoking or causing the death of Michael Brown, who last Saturday was accused by the local police of having engaged in a convenience store robbery, just before his fatal shooting. But what makes my blood boil is that our so-called president and his attorney general jump to judgment, on a consistent and regular basis, against “whitey” and in favor of their black brothers.

A president and his attorney general were elected and appointed and confirmed to represent all of the American people, not just their people. But the opposite has been true in this administration and whites have been afraid to speak out because of fear of being branded racists, or having black vigilantes attack them verbally or physically. The racist Obama and his henchmen like Eric Holder have succeeded in creating what in effect is a huge racial divide and race war in the nation, pitting black against white and vice versa. This race war has manifested itself not just through gratuitous comments that favor blacks over whites, but in his deeds. Here are just a few examples:

First, it has become clear that Obama’s economic policies and eventual legislation, such as the disastrous Obamacare, have been designed to favor blacks over whites, and to in effect have whitey pay reparations to blacks for the insidious years of racial discrimination. Obama’s intention is to melt down the gold in America and redistribute it to his people.

Second, Obama ignores racially motivated crimes against whites, some of which is manifest in the rising anti-Semitism and anti-Christian bigotry here and worldwide. It is an undisputed fact that hate crimes against Jews far exceed those against blacks. But Obama couldn’t care less, particularly since his Muslim roots and sympathies skew his objectivity and interest in doing anything for either Jews or Christians. This also explains why Obama has not spoken out about the persecution of Christians in the Muslim world with any force. He is a Muslim through and through in the mold of his Chicago friend Rev. Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam. Ironically, Obama is less honest than Farrakhan, who says it as he feels it. Obama’s hatred of Christians, Jews and whites in general is more nuanced and subtle, but it has become obvious that in his heart the feelings are not dissimilar from those of Farrakhan and his ilk, like Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Rev. Al Sharpton, to name just a few other black anti-white bigots. At this rate, it is remarkable that Obama has not renamed the White House “the Black House.” Clearly, in his way of thinking, the Founding Fathers must have had conspiratorial racist motives in naming the people’s house accordingly.

I am not a racist and neither is the majority of Americans. But Obama’s actions are creating a huge unjustified backlash against blacks in general; this is tragic and regrettable. The nation owes much to our black brothers who have enriched our society and fought side by side with whites and others in the name of freedom. But the nation owes nothing to the likes of Obama and Holder, who are low-class, racist hacks who should be removed from office and banished to hell by whatever legal means are appropriate.

The bottom line is this: It is time to speak up and act. Racism is indefensible, whether whites or blacks perpetrate it. But we are a nation of laws, and – as enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and other sacred writings and documents that gave birth to a new nation – all men are created equal.

Yes, Mr. President and Mr. Attorney General, whites, Christians and Jews have rights, too, and you either must treat them as equal to blacks or pay the legal price.

Gene Mills: Shelters Should Turn Away Transgender Domestic Abuse Survivors

Louisiana Family Forum president Gene Mills used his appearance on “Washington Watch” yesterday not only to badly misrepresent a proposed non-discrimination ordinance in Baton Rouge, but also to claim that abuse shelters should be able to discriminate against transgender women who face domestic abuse.

“What if this person who claimed to be a transgendered [sic] actually obtained one of these quote legal marriage licenses in elsewhere USA came here and then claimed battery by their spouse, should that man who has now communicated as a transgendered [sic] who has the anatomical parts of both a male and a female become a resident of the battered women’s shelter and ought they be able to say that’s not acceptable?” Mills asked.

Host Richard Land also feared that businesses won’t be able to discipline salesmen who “show up in high heels and a purse and stockings and a dress and a wig and makeup,” alleging that such ordinances are actually discriminatory by “impinging on the business owner’s right to make a living.”

Richard Land: Cities With Non-Discrimination Laws Criminalized Free Speech

Filling in for Tony Perkins on yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” former Southern Baptist Convention official Richard Land discussed the defeat of an LGBT non-discrimination measure in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with Gene Mills of the right-wing Louisiana Family Forum.

Land and Mills both claimed that the ordinance barring employment and housing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity would actually, in Land’s words, “suppress the freedom of speech.”

“Homosexuality and the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender community, that is the ultimate rebellion against God,” Land declared. “We don’t want them to take away from us the right to say that, to say that’s a rebellion against God.”

Mills replied: “And that’s exactly what they were doing, they were going to use a cause of action against us to silence — and that is what is happening in ‘everywhere USA’ — religious liberty is under assault…. Any expression, any thought, anything you just shared, could have been construed as a hate crime or an act of discrimination, and the reality is the shame and the guilt the homosexual feels is mistakenly reinterpreted as discrimination and what they attempt to do is to call it discrimination and prohibit it.”

According to the Human Rights Campaign, approximately 200 cities have non-discrimination ordinances in place. If anything Mills or Land said in the interview was true, then pastors around the country would be facing prosecution… but they’re not because the two Religious Right activists are completely dishonest.

Paranoia-Rama: Obama 'Dictator For Life,' Evils Of Facebook, And Robin Williams' Demonic Possession

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

This week, we learned about the real, sinister agendas of President Obama, the gay rights movement and Facebook.

5. Is Obama Planning To Kill 25 Million People?

No, Obama isn’t planning on killing 25 million people! “The number targeted for termination is probably much higher,” according to Sher Zieve, who posted a column this week on Obama’s genocidal plans on Matt Barber’s conservative outlet BarbWire.

Zieve claims that Obama wants to “eliminate at least 25,000,000 people” — and possibly “many more millions of us” — because he needs to make room for undocumented immigrants. She fears that after killing tens millions of Americans, Obama will then give their homes to immigrants, who will then support his political goals.

Obviously, this will happen any day now.

4. Obama Will Declare Himself ‘Dictator For Life’

In a column for Alan Keyes’ Renew America, Rev. Austin Miles said he knows for a fact that President Obama was born in Kenya because she read it on a “Kenya newspaper’s website.” Unfortunately, “it was scrubbed along with the birth certificate” as “the entire area covered up Obama’s background,” and now only Miles knows the truth.

But that is the least of his worries, as Miles also claims that the Communist Party USA stole the 2012 election and will make Obama “dictator for life.”

Let this be clear: Obama was PLACED in the Oval Office for the express purpose of destroying America. His Communist handlers (CPUSA) found him in Kenya, his birthplace, and groomed him.



The CPUSA also manipulated that second Obama "election" and if this works out like the Communists plan, that would be thelast free election in America. The plan is for Obama to use Executive Order to declare himself, Dictator for Lifein 2016.

Meanwhile the cowardly republicans and democrats who are NOT members of the Communist Party, will do nothing to stop this madness, when they could have him properly REMOVED from office. He should be promptly ESCORTED out of that office which he hijacked and taken to Federal Prison.

3. Gay Marriage Will ‘Obliterate’ Religious Freedom

The group Texas Values convened a press conference to warn their fellow Texans that marriage equality proponents don’t really care about marriage, as they only care about persecuting conservativesundermining the state’s population growth and throwing thousands of pastors in jail.

Texas Values leader Jonathan Saenz, who in the past worried that the LGBT community wants to throw Christians in concentration camps and “terrorize women and children,” even alleged that gay rights advocates want to “destroy” marriage, “attack churches,” and make sure “religious liberty will be obliterated.”

We wonder if his over-the-top rhetoric has anything at all to do with news emerging that his ex-wife left him for another woman.

2. Facebook Is Persecuting Conservatives!

Janet Porter believes that Facebook is censoring conservatives from Kirk Cameron to Peter LaBarbera because of their views on homosexuality, and now is taking a stand for freedom by launching an alternative social media site, ReaganBook.

“I think there are some people that are threatened by freedom of speech,” she told Fox News this week. “People are used to the silencing of all dissent. That's not what this country is founded on…. ReaganBook is putting freedom on the offensive.”

But despite her claims that ReaganBook will be a haven for the freedom of speech, Porter took the website offline apparently because it had a little bit too much speech…from liberals who made fun of the website. The Faith 2 Action leader said ReaganBook will now take steps to become a “more secure site,” free “from obscenity, pornography, and those intent on the destruction of life, liberty, and the family.”

1. WND: Robin Williams Was Possessed

WorldNetDaily has come out with a very tasteful and respectful way to honor the late Robin Williams… by selling a movie about how Williams and other celebrities are possessed by demons.

The right-wing outlet posted an excerpt from Joe Schimmel to help promote his DVD series on Satan’s supposed role in the music industry, and Schimmel claims that Williams admitted to being possessed:

Everybody is currently talking about Robin Williams and his tragic suicide. Many are puzzled as to how a man, who made so many people laugh, could be so depressed that he would violently end his life. What people are not learning is the deeper truth about the insidious forces that tormented Robin Williams and drove him to suicide.

Robin Williams acknowledged that he had opened himself up to transformative demonic powers that aided him on stage. Without the aid of such demonic powers, it is likely that you would have never have heard of Robin Williams and many other famous celebrities. Williams also recognized that these powers had manifested a very evil influence on stage and that there could be a hefty price to pay for their assistance.

Todd Starnes: Obama Helping 'Race Hustlers' In Ferguson

While Bryan Fischer said President Obama didn’t go far enough in condemning police actions in Ferguson, Missouri, Todd Starnes today claimed that Obama helped “professional race hustlers” during his remarks on violence in Ferguson yesterday.

Reacting to the news that Michael Brown, the teenager who was killed, was a suspect in a shoplifting case, Starnes suggested that Brown was a violent criminal.

“The Mainstream Media led us to believe that Michael Brown was a lovable, college-bound teenager who was just minding his own business when he was randomly accosted by the police,” he said. “There was a rush to judgment in this case and the chief offender was our commander in chief. President Obama was all too willing to stand before the cameras and deliver another ‘Cops Acting Stupidly’ speech. I wonder who will deliver the ‘politicians acting stupidly’ speech?”

Of course, it is now being reported that the police officer who fatally shot Brown was not aware that he was a suspect in the convenience store shoplifting.

The narrative in Ferguson Missouri has taken a dramatic turn.

The Mainstream Media led us to believe that Michael Brown was a lovable, college-bound teenager who was just minding his own business when he was randomly accosted by the police.

It was a narrative advanced by professional race hustlers - and quite frankly - to some extent - by the Obama Administration.

The police now tell us Mr. Brown was the suspect in a strong arm robbery.

I doubt that's going to sway the "peaceful protesters."

"I am incensed," Laura Keys, 50, told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I can't believe this is the tactic they are using, bringing up a robbery to make the victim look like he was the person who created this whole mess."

There was a rush to judgment in this case and the chief offender was our commander in chief.

President Obama was all too willing to stand before the cameras and deliver another "Cops Acting Stupidly" speech.

I wonder who will deliver the "politicians acting stupidly" speech?

Kevin McCarthy's Wife Says She Is Losing Her 'Right To Be A Christian'

David Brody has been teasing out clips of an interview he did this week with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and his wife, Judy. At one point in the interview, she played into the Religious Right’s persecution narrative by claiming that Christians like herself are losing their freedom of religion.

“People are sympathetic to different things and different causes, but when you bring up Christian, there is no sympathy whatsoever. They do not think you should be able to have that belief,” she said. “You’re not pushing that on someone else, it’s your own belief, you’re living it, I’ve never seen it the way it is now, I do think it is really scary actually, I think that they don’t want you to have the right to be a Christian.”

Allen West: 'Barack Hussein Obama Is An Islamist'

Former congressman Allen West writes today that President Obama is siding with extremist groups like ISIS because he supports their goal of building an Islamic caliphate.

Why wouldn’t the Obama administration allow Kurdish Peshmerga members to come to America and receive flight training so they could be given quality helicopter gunships and destroy ISIS? Can anyone explain what the strategy and objective is here in lifting this ban with a nation that is or should be on the terrorist watch list?

Sorry, but I can only explain this one way: Barack Hussein Obama is an Islamist in his foreign policy perspectives and supports their cause. You can go back and listen to his 2009 speech in Cairo, where Muslim Brotherhood associates were seated front and center.

All the circumstantial and anecdotal evidence points to that conclusion. The pivot away from the Middle East seems to be nothing more than an opportunity to enable Islamists and their goals. Anyone supporting this Libyan ban being lifted is indeed an enemy of this state.

The Obama administration’s foreign policy doctrine is self-described as “don’t do stupid s@#t”. But I guess that all depends on what your ultimate goal is.

He told Frank Gaffney yesterday that not only does Obama have an “Islamist perspective and viewpoint,” but so does Hillary Clinton. West alleged that the former secretary of state “never spoke out against” a proposed UN resolution barring religious defamation, which Clinton did in fact denounce as an attack on the freedom of speech.

RNC's Chad Connelly: 'God's Got A Home' In The GOP

RNC faith director Chad Connelly said during a recent interview with David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network that Republicans aren’t moving away from conservative stances on issues like marriage equality. In fact, Connelly said that the GOP adopted “the most pro-faith, pro-family, best platform ever put in in Republican Party or political party history down in Tampa in 2012.”

“The Republican Party is the natural home for people of faith,” he said. “This is the place where God’s got a home.”

Connelly also misrepresented the 2012 Democratic National Convention by claiming that delegates there “booed” God.

If only more people cast their ballots based on biblical values, he explained, then Republicans would win more elections.

Ted Cruz And Mike Huckabee Follow David Lane's Christian-Nation Road Show To Michigan

Christian-nation activist David Lane is engaged in a multi-year, multi-state project to get conservative evangelical pastors more involved in electing right-wing candidates, and he is intent on making sure that the GOP nominates a 2016 presidential candidate to the Religious Right’s liking.

In spite of his extremism, Lane regularly gets Republican presidential candidates to attend his American Renewal Project events. On Monday night, Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee spoke at a Michigan Renewal Project “Pastors Policy Briefing.”

Lane generally tries to stay out of the media spotlight, unless it’s for a friendly face like the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody. Even the media-hungry Cruz and Huckabee slipped quietly into Lansing for the event, which the Detroit News picked up on a few days later.

Also speaking at the event was Chad Connelly, the former head of the South Carolina GOP who was hired by the Republican National Committee last year to strengthen the party’s relationship with conservative evangelicals. According to news reports at the time, the Southern Baptist Connelly was brought on to energize evangelicals, some of whom were feeling disillusioned by recent national GOP candidates and by what they saw as the party’s “softening” on marriage equality.

Among the other speakers listed in a promotion for Monday’s event in the August newsletter of the American Decency Association:  right-wing radio host Dennis Prager, “historians” David Barton and Bill Federer, the American Family Association’s Don Wildmon, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver, former Congressman Bob McEwen, and Pastor Laurence White of the Texas Restoration Project.

It seems as if Cruz is equally at home in front of the camera and behind closed doors. The Detroit News reports that he “made a quiet visit to Michigan Sunday and Monday, meeting with Republican Party activists in events that were kept hush-hush until photos of the tea party stalwart and potential 2016 presidential candidate surfaced on social media.”

In addition to Lane’s event, the paper reports, “Cruz appeared at four events over the two-day period organized by Ron Weiser, the Ann Arbor developer and national Republican fundraiser with connections throughout the country.” The paper says Weisner is seeking the GOP nomination for a seat on the University of Michigan board of regents.  Among other attendees at Cruz events were Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and Tea Party activist Wendy Day, who recently lost a GOP primary bid for seat in the state House.

Alex McFarland: Homosexuality Is Satanic, Cuts Life Expectancy By Twenty Years

James Dobson invited Anne Paulk and Alex McFarland to discuss homosexuality this week on his radio show “Family Talk,” and as you could imagine they were not exactly happy with the rise of gay rights in America.

On the third and final broadcast, McFarland made the case that “clearly homosexuality is a destructive behavior,” citing “the actuarial charts of life insurance companies show that gay men live twenty years less than their heterosexual counterparts.” The claim that gay people live twenty years less than straight peers refers to a study conducted in the late 1980s and early 1990s during the AIDS crisis, and one of the authors claims that their research has been “ grossly misrepresented” by anti-gay activists.

McFarland went on to claim that Satan is using gay and transgender identity to “debase and devalue and harm the ones made in God’s image.”

Dobson also used the program to swear that he has “never said anything hateful to a homosexual” or “tried to increase that pain and that rejection.”

Gay Games Participants 'Force Themselves On People,' 'Celebrate Immoral And Dangerous Behavior'

Janet Porter is not pleased that Cleveland Republicans are “working to undermine marriage and family values” and “throwing the moral principles of the party platform under the bus,” referring to the Cuyahoga County GOP’s outreach work at the Cleveland-Akron Gay Games.

“Chairman Rob Frost released a statement about how thrilled he was to welcome the homosexual, lesbian and cross-dressing community into the Republican tent, they even paid for a booth at the Gay Games to celebrate immoral and dangerous behavior from a community that seeks to silence dissent and criminalize Christianity,” the Faith 2 Action and ReaganBook founder said today during her daily radio bulletin.

Phil Burress of the Ohio-based Citizens for Community Values is also worried that participating athletes will use the Gay Games to “force themselves on people”:

A pro-family activist says homosexual activists and their "Gay Games" will fail to turn Ohio into a mecca for homosexuals.

Beginning on Saturday, downtown Cleveland will host "Gay Games 9," which will run through August 16. Normally the event is held in more so-called "gay friendly" cities suchas Boston or Los Angeles.

Phil Burress, chairman of the Citizens for Community Values, notes that homosexuals are one percent of the population.

"And so there are going to be a lot of people in Cleveland who are not going to like what's happening," he says. "But this is typical of their behavior, to force themselves on people."

Burress says there have been negative reactions to the "Gay Games," including from Muslim car drivers who refused to drive with advertising that promotes the games.

Burress believes many people will keep their distance from the so-called "Gay Games."

Alex McFarland: 'Psychologically Destructive' Homosexuality Creates Problems In LGBT Community, Not Homophobia

On James Dobson’s “Family Talk” radio program earlier this week, Religious Right pundit Alex McFarland disputed claims that high rates of depression, suicide, and self-abuse among gay people are connected to internalized homophobia.

“Here in America, we’re told ad infinitum that depression and psychiatric illness among professed homosexuals is due to our culture of homophobia,” he said. “It’s our fault when homosexual people have mental stress.”

Furious that anyone could possibly link anti-gay activism to anti-gay bigotry, McFarland concluded that, once again, the problems lie within gays themselves: “Along with what I believe is spiritually destructive behavior and physically destructive behavior, homosexuality is psychologically destructive behavior.”

Thankfully, ex-gay activist Anne Paulk was also on the air to supplement McFarland’s wisdom with an “unscientific survey” she conducted among gay women on the causes of their own depression and poor mental health: “They didn’t even mention homophobia, their family of origin’s point of view, none of that. It was the breakup of a same-sex relationship that precipitated this sense of, ‘Oh, my life’s not worth living anymore.’”

Paulk lamented that the media routinely points the finger at anti-gay intolerance for issues many LGBT people face, yet failed to conduct their own research proving that homophobia is actually a manufactured problem. Clearly, these four accredited studies just can’t stand up to the solidity of Paulk’s “unscientific survey.”
