AFA: People Who Couldn't Pray Away The Gay Weren't Trying Hard Enough

Ed Vitagliano of the American Family Association writes in this month’s edition of the AFA Journal that while he knows many people have “prayed endlessly for God to remove their same-sex attractions — to no avail,” that is because they simply haven’t called upon the power of God “to gain mastery over [their] impulses.”

Vitagliano cites “the reality of ‘ex-gay’ people” as proof that “there are clearly many who have left the lifestyle.”

He notes that while ex-gays have “reoriented their affections to the opposite sex,” nonetheless “temptation remains.”

The Bible makes clear that homosexual acts are sinful. Yet what about a same sex orientation apart from sexual activity? Is it also sinful?

The answer appears to be yes, just as a desire to fornicate is a sin. In Romans 1:26-27, Paul speaks of the homosexual’s “degrading passions” or desires themselves. He also mentions that they “burned in their desire toward one another” and then committed “indecent acts.”



Perhaps the person born blind will cry out to the Lord for a miracle, and sometimes God answers and heals. But if we are honest, most of the time God does not seem inclined – whatever the reason – to perform that miracle.

Likewise, countless people who self-identify as homosexual claim to have prayed endlessly for God to remove their same sex attractions – to no avail.

This is not the whole story, of course. Despite the media’s refusal to consider the reality of “ex-gay” people, there are clearly many who have left the lifestyle. While temptation remains, they have – by God’s grace – reoriented their affections to the opposite sex.



On the other hand, like the blind or paralyzed person who cries out to God for physical healing but does not receive it, Christians who still struggle with same sex attraction may find themselves similarly frustrated.

For some reason, God often responds to prayer requests as He did with Paul: “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9). The battle goes on. The Christian must fight against his fallen nature as the Israelites fought against the continual encroachments of the Philistines.

What, then, do we say to the gay man and the lesbian? What are they to do with their brokenness? First, if they remain defiant in it, they will eternally perish. Yet this is no different than the drunkard or the fornicator or the liar or the idolater. All who remain in their rebellion are damned.



Can a person be a Christian and still struggle against same sex attractions? Yes. When we become followers of Christ, we continue to battle the flesh in all its permutations (Galatians 5:16-17). But we have the power of Christ on our side, and we are called to gain mastery over the impulses that have plagued us, even if the impulses themselves remain. Christ will lead us in victory if we will receive His grace daily and obey Him.

Louie Gohmert Says Latinos Will Vote Republican Because They Believe In God

Rep. Louie Gohmert seems to be convinced that a spike in border crossings by unaccompanied minors is part of a sinister plot to push non-citizen children to commit voter fraud to help elect Democratic candidates.

In an interview yesterday with News Talk Florida host Dan Maduri, after suggesting President Obama invade Mexico, Gohmert once again laid out his new conspiracy theory, suggesting that undocumented immigrants unlawfully voted for Obama in the 2012 election in return for welfare benefits.

However, the Texas Republican then said that Latinos will begin voting for Republicans because the GOP is the party for those who believe in God: “Now over time I think they will eventually realize that those in favor of hard work, faith in God and belief in democracy will eventually start voting Republican, but in the meantime I’m not sure there’s a country left by the time they realize that.”

He also told Maduri that Obama broke his oath of office over immigration policy.

William Gheen Denies Calling For 'Illegal And Violent' Action Against Obama

For some mysterious reason, the Los Angeles Times has decided that William Gheen of the fringe anti-immigrant group Americans for Immigration Reform is a credible source for immigration policy stories, and last week invited him to participate in a live debate on the issue with two immigration reform advocates.

To her credit, Times report Ann Simmons confronted Gheen with the transcript of a 2011 radio interview — first reported by Right Wing Watch — in which he implied that “illegal and violent” tactics might be needed to stop President Obama’s war on “White America.” (Simmons mistakenly said that Gheen made the comments on the previous day.)

After hearing his comments read back to him, Gheen denied ever calling for violence because he is dedicated to “peaceful, civil-rights-type efforts," and said that because of his dedication to peaceful “civil rights” work, he wouldn’t discuss “those other things that are out there being discussed because of the dictates of Obama.”

He did, however, note that the president has “nullified the Constitution, nullified existing federal law, and nullified the outcomes of our elections.”

Larry Klayman Claims 'Liberal Jews' Are Just Like Adolf Hitler

Larry Klayman marked Independence Day with a column railing against liberal American Jews, calling them “self-hating” and anti-Semitic. Klayman was upset that “the Obama regime and other Western leaders were quick to blame Israeli settlers on the West Bank” for burning an Arab teenager alive, which he claims is proof that President Obama and John Kerry are anti-Semites who are out to destroy Israel. (Three of the six suspects, all Jewish, have reportedly confessed to the murder.)

Klayman went on to scold “liberal Jews” who “lose no opportunity to distance themselves from their Judeo-Christian heritage in the style of Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky and indeed the evil Fuhrer Adolf Hitler himself,” adding that “these types of Jews, some of whom are present in the Obama White House to give Obama cover for his anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli acts and practices, are among the greatest enemies of the Jewish people.”

In recent months, Israel and the world have witnessed the consequences of this retreat. Hamas had now ascended to a unity government with the Palestinian Authority and is more powerful than ever, extending its reach from Gaza into the West Bank. And, just in the last few weeks, this power has become more apparent as Hamas, in a brazen act of provocation, kidnapped and executed three Jewish Israel teenagers in this West Bank. Just days after their bodies were found, a Palestinian boy was found dead, his body bad burned and left in a forest in Jerusalem. Although the cause of this death is unknown at this time and under investigation, the Obama regime and other Western leaders were quick to blame Israeli settlers on the West Bank and thus Israel for the killing. True to form, Obama's equally anti-Semitic secretary of state, John Kerry, took the lead in gleefully blaming Jews for the killing of the Palestinian boy, while expressing only pro forma if not feigned grief for the dead Jewish teenagers.

While this type of anti-Semitic behavior is predictable from Obama and his secretary of state, what is more frightening is the reaction of many liberal Jews themselves. These Jews, indeed self-hating ones, lose no opportunity to distance themselves from their Judeo-Christian heritage in the style of Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky and indeed the evil Fuhrer Adolf Hitler himself, who many historians have concluded had Jewish roots on his father's side of the family. These types of Jews, some of whom are present in the Obama White House to give Obama cover for his anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli acts and practices, are among the greatest enemies of the Jewish people.



If we do not step in to protect Israel from its enemies, both internal as in the case of the leftist Jewish likes of Roger Cohen, and external, as in the case of the Obama, Kerry, Hamas and its Palestinian/Muslim brethren who are dedicated to its destruction, then we will have forsaken the roots of our own American revolution, which the Founding Fathers wagered on their proud Judeo-Christian heritage and spirituality – all of which, as Franklin and Jefferson recognized, have their foundation in the promised land of Moses.

Tony Perkins' Christian-Persecution Report Highlights Persecution of Tony Perkins

The Family Research Council came out yesterday with a report on "hostility to religion in America," a collection of anecdotes from the past 14 years supposedly illustrating the persecution of conservative Christians in the U.S.

Some anecdotes highlighted in the report are troubling incidents that FRC admits were later rectified. Others are incidents that we might not all count as examples of religious hostility — for instance Miss USA contestant Carrie Prejean being “mocked and ridiculed” for her answer to a question on same-sex marriage in 2009. Still others are stories of dubious accuracy — for instance, the story of a girl in Florida supposedly punished for praying at school, who just so happened to be the daughter of the man in charge of promoting Todd Starnes’ book on Christian persecution.

And then there was this:

Minister’s Invitation to National Prayer Luncheon Revoked because of His Comments on Homosexuality in the Military – February 2010*

An ordained minister and Marine Corps veteran was punished for speaking out on a topic unrelated to his planned comments at the National Prayer Luncheon at Andrews Air Force Base outside of Washington, D.C. The minister criticized President Obama’s call to end the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, resulting in his invitation to speak at the National Prayer Luncheon being rescinded. The minister criticized the action as “black-listing” to suppress unwanted viewpoints.

Who is this unnamed minister who was disinvited from the National Prayer Luncheon? He wasn’t just a minister who had criticized “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal. He was none other than the Family Research Council’s own president Tony Perkins.

This attempt to gloss over Perkins’ identity to make him seem like an innocent bystander to a vast anti-Christian agenda highlights a key strategy in the Religious Right’s persecution narrative. Like David and Jason Benham, who lost a TV contract with HGTV after Right Wing Watch reported on their vocal and public anti-gay, anti-choice activism (and who are also featured in FRC’s report), Tony Perkins is not just a private citizen who holds anti-gay views. He’s the leader of a major organization that opposed the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” with misleading claims and demeaning rhetoric. You can agree or disagree with Perkins being disinvited from the prayer luncheon. But FRC would like us to believe that disagreement with Tony Perkins is the very same thing as hostility to religion.

WorldNetDaily Pundit Claims Obama Will Unleash The Military On Conservatives

Another day, another WorldNetDaily column predicting that President Obama is going to confiscate firearms, impose martial law and imprison conservatives.

Today’s warning comes from Morgan Brittany, who writes that Obama will use the increase in child migrants as a calculated way to incite an anti-Obama revolution, giving the president a justification to introduce “martial law,” start “confiscating our guns and ammo,” create a “totalitarian state” and begin a spate of “military arrests”

Supposedly, the NDAA broadens the scope and power of the federal government to fight the War on Terror, and under this law the military has the power to carry out domestic anti-terrorism operations on U.S. soil. This means it allows the detaining of U.S. citizens domestically without trial if they are considered a threat. The question then becomes: Who is a threat? Is it a member of the tea party? Someone who speaks out against Obamacare or takes issue with the administration’s policies? Someone the NSA has listened to and feels is a problem? We saw what happened with the IRS targeting – can military arrests be far behind? This idea would be considered folly except for the fact that in 2009 there was a DHS report entitled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalism and Recruitment.” It specifically stated that conservatives and the unemployed represent a clear and present danger.



So when you put the pieces of this puzzle together and you see what is happening on our border, am I crazy to think that this was all a plan that has been put in motion to overwhelm the system and create anger and chaos among the American people? With the influx of illegal children surrendering to the Border Patrol, the officers can no longer protect the border because they are too busy changing diapers and tending to sick kids. They are overwhelmed and cannot feed, house or nurse these thousands of people.



We all know the truth, that none of these people are going to be returned to their home countries. They will disappear into the shadows as millions before them have, and we the taxpayers will pick up the bill as we always do. This is a giant poke in the eye to an already angry American tiger, and it will only take one spark to blow the whole thing up.

Ah, but this is what the left and this administration wants. It is classic Cloward-Piven. Overwhelm the system, anger the populace, create chaos, and then, martial law takes over. Through his executive orders, the president gave himself the authority to use the military as he sees fit. We saw just a taste of it after the Boston Marathon bombing when there was a huge over-reaction by closing down the city, storming homes and property and keeping people prisoners in their own homes. That was just a test to see how compliant people would become.

If Obama gets his way and the system collapses through illegal immigration or financial means, if he succeeds in confiscating our guns and ammo so that no one but the government has them, then we the people will be at their mercy, and the sad thing is that many people will welcome their control. At that point the American people will be helpless against a totalitarian state, and they will have succeeded in the full transformation of this country.

Louie Gohmert Suggests Obama 'Do What Woodrow Wilson Did' And Send Troops To Mexico

Rep. Louie Gohmert is pretty sure that President Obama is pushing for minors to cross the border as part of a giant voter fraud scheme, and thinks that if the president were serious about cracking down on illegal immigration, then he would send troops to the Southern border … and perhaps into Mexico.

“If he wanted to, he could do what Woodrow Wilson did,” the Texas congressman told News Talk Florida host Dan Maduri, referring to Wilson’s military intervention in Mexico.

“He sent John Pershing with troops into Mexico and you can read different versions, tens of thousands of national guard were put on the border and nobody came in that we didn’t want to come in. This president could do that just as well.”

Gohmert added that the Southern border is now “wide open for drugs” and suggested that the child migrants may include radical Islamist terrorists.

Madison Project: 'Illegal Invasion,' 'Anti-Family Agenda' Make Conservatives 'Strangers In Our Own Country'

The Madison Project, the Tea Party group backed by Sen. Ted Cruz that’s pushing far-right challengers in Republican congressional races, marked the Fourth of July this year by lamenting that the “illegal invasion,” the “anti-family agenda,” Social Security, and the rest of the social safety net make them “feel like strangers in our own country.”

Sadly, many of us are spending this 4th of July wondering if our Founders would recognize that republic – that beacon of freedom built upon a strong civil society and ordered liberty. So many ordinary Americans feel our republic is long lost to a foreign socialist utopia centrally managed by an elitist oligarchy in the form of two corrupt political parties.

This small minority of radicals has completely vitiated our most fundamental characteristic as a republic – our sovereign borders. We are now languishing from the flood of over 100,000 illegal immigrants teaming over our southern border, adding to the millions of illegals already here. At stake is nothing less than the preservation of our civil society, sovereignty, and solvency as a nation and as a stable economy. They drain our resources, health care, education, and criminal justice system.

We feel like strangers in our own country.

Even without the illegal invasion, our republic is hanging on by a thread.

Almost every American is involuntarily subservient to the federal government for his or her retirement security and healthcare. Over 46 million people, and one-in-four children, rely upon government for food stamps. Under the new Obamacare mandates, an estimated 79 million Americans will be enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP. This culture of dependency, an anathema to our spirit of independence, has saddled us with over $1 million in debt and unfunded obligations for every American taxpayer.

Meanwhile, ordered liberty in a constitutional republic needs a strong civil society and strong families in order to thrive, much like fish in water. Yet, the cultural degeneration, promulgated and encouraged by this small societal elite, has permeated every aspect of American life – to the extent that those of us who adhere to traditional family values are now ostracized and castigated. We have reached the point where we need a group of unelected judges to grant us small morsels of religious liberty from their high benches in Washington. The small minority who push this invidious anti-family agenda now seek to eradicate the very existence of gender to the degree that private individuals and businesses are now being forces to accommodate bizarre and licentious practices.

The “Republican” Party was supposed to serve as the bulwark against attempts to supplant our republican form of government, yet they have become part and parcel of the problem. Decades’ worth of treachery directed towards the party faithful from its leadership has finally culminated with the Mississippi election last week. A long-serving Republican, with the blessing of the entire party establishment, engaged in fraud and race-baiting to repudiate his own party base and steal the election.

We are now living through the worst consequences of elective despotism that James Madison warned about in Federalist 48. Indeed we are strangers in our own country and in our own party.

Rodney Howard-Browne Fears America 'Has Become Demon Possessed'

During last weekend’s “Celebrate America” convention, televangelist Rodney Howard-Browne called on Religious Right activists to free America from the clutches of Satan before the country turns into a jail for Christians.

“We have allowed the Devil to come in and take over every realm of society,” Howard-Browne lamented. After dismissing the separation of church and state as “a bunch of garbage” and peddling some Christian Nationalist pseudo-history, Howard-Browne warned that people will soon flee America. “If we do not see another Great Awakening, people are going to want to leave here because this place is fast becoming a prison,” he said.

Later, he called on conservatives to take back the government, warning that “it is like our nation has become demon possessed in every realm.”

Louie Gohmert: Obama Is Bringing In Central American Immigrants To Vote Illegally For Democrats

Speaking with Newsmax host Steve Malzberg yesterday about the influx of Central American children and families at the Southern border, Rep. Louie Gohmert implied that President Obama was orchestrating the crisis in order to recruit millions of people to cast fraudulent ballots for Democrats and seize Texas from Republican control.

“In the end, they have said that they want to turn Texas blue, they want to turn America blue,” he said. “And if you bring in hundreds of thousands or millions of people and give them the ability to vote and tell them — as Quico Canseco said, he had illegals in his district that were told, ‘If you want to keep getting the benefits, you have to vote, and President Obama’s lawyers are not going to allow them to ask for an ID, so go vote or you’re going to lose the benefits you’re getting now.’ That drives people to vote and it will ensure that Republicans don’t ever get elected again.”

The Texas Republican also told Malzberg that the Central American refugees, combined with the end of the gold standard during the Nixon administration, will bankrupt the country.
 

Pastor At Religious Right Event Predicts Church Will Soon Cure HIV

Televangelist Rodney Howard-Browne’s “Celebrate America” event kicked off over the Fourth of July weekend, bringing Religious Right speakers together in Washington D.C. with predictable messages about how gay rights will doom America.

One speaker, Pastor Kwabena Sarpong of Winners Chapel International Maryland, said that while the U.S. was established with spiritual “power,” the country is now in decline because “they have taken power out of it.” A Religious Right revival, Sarpong explained, would bring America back to greatness … and even cure HIV.

“Thank God for you and I that we are in this nation, we are taking the revival. Until they see power, they will not believe in your God,” he said. “When they have toiled and they can’t find any cure to HIV and they come to the church and you lay hands and they start walking, they will see power and they will all run to the House of God for the Bible says in the Last Days all shall run.”

Cliven Bundy Defends Border Militias, Tells Feds to Point Guns At 'Enemy' Immigrants

If the anti-immigrant protests in Murietta, California, and the gathering of militia groups at the border remind you of the anti-government standoff at Cliven Bundy’s ranch, that might be because the events are attracting some of the very same people.

Far-right radio host Pete Santilli, who we last saw harassing a Mexican-American reporter at Bundy’s ranch, has been broadcasting from Murietta for the past week or so and has mentioned that he has also driven down to join some groups along the Southern border, who he has been working with in an effort to shut down the Tijuana border crossing.

In fact, yesterday, Santilli interviewed Bundy himself about the similarities between the Bundy ranch standoff and the events in Murietta and at the border.

Calling the Bureau of Land Management “dirty rotten buggers,” Bundy told Santilli that the groups who faced off with the BLM at his ranch were “successful in bringing back freedom to America, at least in this area.”

Speaking of the militia groups gathering at the Southern border — including groups like the Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters, who were strongly represented at his ranch — Bundy said that like at his ranch, federal agents are “pointing their guns at we the people” and not at the “enemy,” who he said is the “encroacher that’s illegally coming in here.”

Jennifer Roback Morse: 'Thank God For The Men On The Supreme Court' Who Are 'Sticking Up' For Women

In a Christian Post column this weekend, the Ruth Institute’s Jennifer Roback Morse thanks God that the men on the Supreme Court are “sticking up for ‘everywoman’ against the Elite Women,” represented by the women on the Supreme Court who have allowed feminism to help them through their careers.

Morse argues that because Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan are childless, they don’t “understand and respect the lives and aspirations” of women who prioritize children over their careers, while Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a “lifelong radical feminist ideologue.”

Let me tell you about a friend of mine named Katie. She is a brilliant attorney, who works part-time for a non-profit public interest legal organization. Katie has nine children, whom she homeschools. She lives out in the country in coastal California. By any reasonable reckoning, Katie, is "having it all:" big family, country living in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and meaningful, intellectually challenging work.

However, it is safe to say that Katie is highly unlikely to ever be appointed to the Supreme Court. She has other concerns. She does not have the single-minded focus on her legal career that would allow her to be a serious contender.

I too, have had a wonderful advantaged life: meaningful work, good family life. But I never chaired an economics department. I never sat on any prestigious commissions. I wasn't given any political appointment as my childless or male peers have done.

Which brings me back to the subject at hand: whose interests do the women on the Supreme Court actually represent?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a lifelong radical feminist ideologue. She came of age in the short window of time when women could still get married, have kids, go to law school, and have a career after child-bearing. Her two children were born when she was 22 and 32. Thanks to radical feminism, highly educated women have a much more difficult time doing these things. They can go to law school and have a career alright. But getting married and having children sometime before menopause, not so much.

Justice Ginsburg had the lifelong support of her husband in her career aspirations. Thanks to no-fault divorce, women today cannot count on a lifetime of mutual support with their husbands. Justice Ginsburg has been safely insulated from the negative fallout of the sexual revolution which she and her radical feminist colleagues did so much to champion.

The other two women on the Supreme Court, Justices Kagan and Sotomayor, are childless. It is highly unlikely that the two of them understand and respect the lives and aspirations of women like my friend Katie and me. And for less educated women, family is everything and "career" is a job to put food on the table. Elite women know nothing of "everywoman," the people who have endured the sexual revolution, and who do not have high status jobs as compensation.

Women like Katie and I are willing to let ourselves see the harm that the Sexual Revolution had done to the poor. Our lives do not depend on defending the Sexual Revolution. By contrast, for many Elite Women, the sexual revolution has made possible their lives as they know them. They literally cannot imagine what their lives would be like without contraception, with abortion as a back-up plan.

As I say, Katie and I will never occupy the seats of power that are available to childless women. We have many achievements to our credit, but Elite Women will run the show. We have good lives: I do not regret for one moment, the choices I have made. But there is no getting around it: childless women have an advantage over mothers in the competition for power and influence.

All I can say is: thank God for the men on the Supreme Court. At least someone is sticking up for "everywoman" against the Elite Women.

Religious Right Pundit Calls For Boycott Of Independence Day Parades That Include Gay Rights Supporters

Laurie Higgins of the American Family Association’s Illinois affiliate is distraught that Boy Scouts wearing rainbow bandanas and a local Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) club participated in Independence Day parades in two Illinois towns this year.

In a column in BarbWire today, Higgins calls on parents to boycott any event that includes supporters of gay rights. “What a barbarous affront to families and an insult to our veterans,” the Illinois Family Institute cultural analyst writes. “No Christian should bring their children to any event that celebrates and affirms soul-destroying sexual perversion.”

She predicts that soon “there will be no square inch of life that will be left untouched by the sullied hands of homosexual perversity–no celebration, no public school, no career path, and no church will be left unmolested.”

Higgins laments that the founding fathers’ “vision for liberty has been twisted into a sickening defense of sexual predilections that will hurt individuals and weaken the country that so many have died to bring into existence and to defend,” turning America into an “uncivilized nation.”

A justifiably irate parent from Deerfield, a liberal community on the North Shore, contacted me to tell me that one of the scoutmasters and a couple of the scouts he leads in her son’s troop (Troop 50) decided to add rainbow-colored bandannas to their official uniforms to demonstrate their support for something. Perhaps they were showing their support for the change in Boy Scout policy which allows openly homosexual boys to become members, or maybe they were advocating for a change in policy so that men who are attracted to males can serve openly as leaders of males, or maybe they wanted to signal their affirmation of homosexuality, or perhaps they want men-wannabes (i.e., cross-dressers and the genitally mutilated) to serve as leaders.

Angry parents of young children in Wheaton, a conservative community which is home to Wheaton College and a dozen theologically orthodox churches, contacted me to express their frustration that for the second year in a row, the homosexuality-affirming organization Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) had marched in the parade. No one opposes friendships with homosexuals, but, of course, that’s not really what this deviously-named organization is promoting.



Communities now take pride in affirming shameful behaviors, with our elected leaders marching pridefully in celebration of that which no man or woman should celebrate let alone celebrate on Main Street in front of children. What a barbarous affront to families and an insult to our veterans. No Christian should bring their children to any event that celebrates and affirms soul-destroying sexual perversion. If Christians are unwilling to make even this small sacrifice, they are woefully unprepared for what’s coming.

Some will be tsk-tsking me (or worse) for criticizing these intrusions into what should be occasions to celebrate the founding of the greatest nation that has ever existed on this planet—a nation founded by men who understood that God exists and absolute, objective, transcendent, eternal moral truths exist. These men of diverse theological views would share in common a sense of outrage that their vision for liberty has been twisted into a sickening defense of sexual predilections that will hurt individuals and weaken the country that so many have died to bring into existence and to defend.



The proverbial writing has been on the wall for quite some time, and it doesn’t take a Daniel to read it. There will be no square inch of life that will be left untouched by the sullied hands of homosexual perversity–no celebration, no public school, no career path, and no church will be left unmolested.

If your community parade included participants who celebrated ideas to which no young children should be exposed, call the appropriate village, town, or city officials to express your opposition, telling them that next year you will find a child-friendly activity way to celebrate the founding of this increasingly uncivilized nation.

Todd Starnes Warns Of Anti-Duck Dynasty Violence, Links Same-Sex Marriage To Healthy Food Initiatives

In an interview last week with talk show host Jeanne Dennis, Fox News commentator Todd Starnes predicted that conservative Christians will soon organize acts of civil disobedience and street demonstrations akin to the Civil Rights Movement to protest their purported oppression.

Starnes specifically cited Phil Robertson, who was briefly suspended from the A&E show “Duck Dynasty” for making racist and anti-gay remarks in a magazine interview, as a victim of “persecution.”

He even said that criticism of Robertson will lead to violence: “If you can take someone like Phil Robertson and say, ‘Phil Robertson is preaching hate,’ or, ‘He’s speaking hate,’ eventually that is going to justify violence against those kinds of people.”

Later in the interview, Starnes linked same-sex marriage to feminism, which he said is waging “an attack on men” and “putting limitations” on women, and to Michelle Obama’s healthy diet and living initiatives, which he feared would lead to a ban on Nutter Butters and cheeseburgers.

Starnes said that feminism, same-sex marriage and the first lady’s health advocacy are all part of an attempt to “tear down the family unit” and make the government “control everything.” He finished by making a joke mocking transgender people.

Michael Peroutka, Christian Nationalist And Southern Secessionist, Wins GOP County Council Nomination In Maryland

Two weeks ago, Peter reported that Michael Peroutka, a Southern secessionist and head of the Christian Nationalist group Institute on the Constitution, was narrowly leading in the GOP primary for a seat on the Anne Arundel County, Maryland, county council. Now, after all the ballots have been counted, Peroutka appears to have come out on top of the five-way primary in his heavily Republican district, besting his closest competitor by a mere 38 votes.

In an editorial today, the Annapolis Capital Gazette notes that by nominating Peroutka, GOP voters in the district “have definitely gotten their party into a pickle.”

“Peroutka told voters the truth when he stressed that he was against taxes and stormwater fees,” the Capital Gazette writes. “He didn’t stress that he’s also a theocrat and secessionist who thinks it would be great if local officials refused to uphold state laws.”

Peroutka has certainly indicated that his national political activism will inform how he governs at the local level.

He recently presented his theory that the Maryland General Assembly is “no longer a valid legislative body” because it passed laws that he deems to be violations of “God’s law,” including a marriage equality bill and a stormwater tax. Last year, he said that state and local prosecutors should just ignore Roe v. Wade and prosecute women who have abortions or their providers for murder. 

Peroutka's spokesman told the Capital Gazette yesterday that the candidate "would evaluate each piece of legislation to be sure it was authorized by God in the Bible, the U.S. Constitution and the Anne Arundel County Charter” and would look into privatizing road repairs and the fire department.

In the general election, Peroutka will be running against Democrat Patrick Armstrong, who handily beat Peroutka’s Institute on the Constitution sidekick David Whitney in the primary.

Ben Carson Thinks Obama Is Engaging In A Leninist Plot To Intentionally Destroy The Economy

Readying for a potential presidential bid, Ben Carson has been speaking out about how everything from health care reform to gay marriage is part of a long-term communist plot to bring down America, inspired by Vladimir Lenin and Saul Alinsky and orchestrated by none other than President Obama.

In the second part of Carson’s interview with WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah last week, which he began by tying together pot use, Benghazi and the Pharrell song “Happy,” the conservative activist said “people need to wake up” about the subversive communist plot.

He suggested that communists in government, following the teachings of Lenin, have deliberately added on debts in order to destroy the U.S. economy. “Of course they don’t talk about it, I’ll tell you who does talk about it: Vladimir Lenin. One of the ways to destroy the United States? Unsustainable debt. People, you got to wake up, you got to wake up.” This, of course, would make George W. Bush the biggest Leninist of all.

However, Carson insisted that he was merely just asking the question: “I don’t know if it is intentional or not, but whether it is intentional or not doesn’t matter, we’ll still be destroyed.”

Dave Daubenmire Suggests LGBT-Affirming Adults Are Better Off Dead, Decries Democrats As 'Children Of Lucifer'

Far-right pundit Dave Daubenmire attended a gay pride parade in Springfield, Missouri, last month and posted photos of participants in his latest column, decrying “the young souls parading their sin in the public streets.”

“Homosexuality is gobbling up our young kids,” he added, warning that children “are being lured into a self-destructive behavior because they have bought the lie that homosexuality is normal.”

Alluding to a verse from the Book of Matthew, Daubenmire wrote that it “would have been better for these adults had they been drowned with a millstone around their necks than having mislead one of these little ones.”

I just returned home with a group of hearty men from witnessing at the Homosexual Pride Parade in Springfield, Missouri. As usual, I was heartbroken by the age of those who have been captured by the “lifestyle.” Take a look at these photos. Notice the young souls parading their sin in the public streets. It would have been better for these adults had they beendrowned with a millstone around their necks than having mislead one of these little ones.

These two pictures, in particular, broke my heart. These are somebody's daughters. I wonder if their Mom's and Dad's hearts' are broken too?

When we returned, I posted some of these images on my Facebook page. My intent was to prick the hearts of people to action. Homosexuality is gobbling up our young kids. There is nothing “gay” about it. They are being lured into a self-destructive behavior because they have bought the lie that homosexuality is normal. It isn't. It is deviant. Someone needs to tell them, help them, and lead them to the truth. Our churches have turned a blind eye.

In another column, Daubenmire claimed that the Democratic Party “should be called the Party of Death” due to its support for abortion rights and gay equality.

“Hedonistic” Democrats, Daubenmire explained, are the “children of Lucifer” who deny science and promote “homosex” to children.

“Smoking a Marlboro is bad but sodomizing the Marlboro Man is worse,” he said.

The Bible teaches us that Jesus is the embodiment of Truth. The American-left hates Truth. It is obvious for anyone with the courage to admit it. The Democratic Party in America should be called the Party of Death because two of their leading platforms support death if it gets in the way of Pursuit of personal Happiness.

Abortion kills an unborn baby. All of the legal linguistics and excuses that the God-haters use supplant the freedom of choice over the unalienable Right to Life. “Choice” is not an unalienable right. The God-haters love science and all the “evidence” it can provide to disprove the existence of God, yet they ignore ALL Medical Science which unquestionably proves that a “fetus” is a life.

But that doesn't matter...it is hedonistic-happiness that is paramount to the children of Lucifer...even to the denial of what is obvious to everyone. They admit that a fetus is “alive” but that it is not “viable” or “self-aware” or “unable to live on its own.” Funny, isn't it? That is the same position that the Left is taking in regards to the aged...because the Left loves death.



Help me out here...can someone tell me why our schools spend so much time teaching our kids the dangers of smoking while we laud and encourage a far more lethal behavior of male-on-male anal sex? Smoking a Marlboro is bad but sodomizing the Marlboro Man is worse.

Thousands of innocent people around the world have gotten HIV by accident. The AIDS virus is the sexual equivalent of second-hand smoke. The Left denies and lies about any science that doesn't fit their agenda. If you disagree with their interpretation of science you are intolerant, bigoted, and homo-phobic.

Ask yourself this, Mom and Dad. Would you rather your child smoked a cigarette or engaged in homosex? Which is your school teaching is worse? Both abortion and HIV is acquired. The Left wants to separate their behavior from the consequences, no matter how many innocent have to die. Happiness is more important than Life.



If abortion ended tomorrow more babies would live. If sodomy was criminalized tomorrow more people would live. The Science supports my position. But the God-haters love death more than Truth.

D’Souza: Lessons On Columbus, Slavery And Civil Rights Are Liberal Plot To Make 'Young People Hate America'

In an interview with One American News Network’s Rick Amato last week, right-wing activist and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza claimed that liberals are “teaching our young people to hate America” by including lessons on slavery, colonization and the Civil Rights Movement in school curricula.

D’Souza, who’s promoting his new movie “America: Imagine The World Without Her,” told Amato that a “generation of spoiled, overfed, affluent young people who turned bitterly against the Vietnam War” later “basically rewrote American history to make America the bad guy in all circumstances” by teaching schoolchildren about things such as the founding fathers owning slaves and Christopher Columbus’ exploitation of the native population.

“In a sense, we’re teaching our young people to hate America,” he said.

He added that this was part of a plot by leftist radicals who have figured out that “you don’t need to be a radical by blowing up a bridge” and that you can write textbooks instead.
