PFAW’s Spanish-Language TV Ad Challenges Deal and Perdue in Georgia

Today People For the American Way launched its latest Spanish-language TV ad, this one challenging Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and Senate candidate David Perdue on their dangerous agendas on education, minimum wage, workers’ rights, and immigration reform. The ad will air starting today in Atlanta. (An English translation of the ad is available below.)

“Governor Deal and David Perdue are both too extreme for Georgia,” said Carlos Sanchez, Coordinator of Political Campaigns at People For the American Way. “They’ve both positioned themselves against policies that support and empower working families, including Latinos. They want to slash support for education, make it harder to obtain health care, and keep wages low. We’re going to make sure Latino voters know about their track record and agenda.”

This ad is the latest in PFAW’s campaign to highlight the extreme views of GOP candidates for Latino voters in key states. Georgia’s growing Latino population, which increased by more than 110 percent since 2000, can have a major impact in this close election. Latinos now represent more than 9 percent of the state’s population.

This is the third ad of the election in PFAW’s multi-state Spanish language campaign. Earlier this cycle, PFAW launched ads challenging Perdue as well as North Carolina senate candidate Thom Tillis on his own extreme views.

The script of the ad reads:

¡Los republicanos de Georgia quieren destruir nuestro futuro!

El gobernador Deal no quiere que nuestros DREAMers vayan a las mejores universidades y votó para negarle la ciudadanía a niños inmigrantes nacidos aquí.

Y el candidato para el senado David Perdue, también está en contra nosotros. ¡No quiere aumentar el sueldo mínimo!

Tenemos que votar contra estos republicanos, para lograr un futuro mejor.

Peter LaBarbera Vows 'Massive Civil Disobedience' To Block Gay Marriages

Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality is not exactly pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear appeals on several marriage equality cases, warning in a statement today that as a result of the court’s non-decision “we live not in freedom but under tyranny.”

“Now is the time for civil disobedience on a massive scale: we hope that statesmen and citizens alike -— in Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Indiana, Utah and Virginia — indeed, any state where the people’s will has been robbed by elitist judges — will reassert their state sovereignty against escalating judicial supremacy,” LaBarbera writes. “God is not mocked: the Scriptures are clear that homosexual practice is an offense against both God and the very bodies of those who practice it (as is all sexual immorality).”

We are witnessing a "gradual Roe v. Wade" by which unelected judges impose homosexual 'marriage' on the nation. Hubris rules the day as millions of Americans' votes defending actual marriage (one man, one woman) are negated by one court ruling after another. Each decision bastardizes America's noble quest for racial justice by invoking "equality" for unions based on disordered sexual behavior that can never be "equal" to God-ordained sex within marriage. Now the nation's highest court is content to let the ongoing disenfranchisement become law.

Yesterday's action by the Supreme Court only solidifies the idea that the powerful elites who dominate politics, media and culture do not care what the people think, expressed through the ballot box or their elected state legislators. And if "We the People's" votes do not count, then We live not in freedom but under tyranny.

The notion that nine men and women in black robes know more about what constitutes marriage than 76 percent of Oklahoma's voters is insulting and preposterous. Now is the time for civil disobedience on a massive scale: we hope that statesmen and citizens alike--in Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Indiana, Utah and Virginia—indeed, any state where the people's will has been robbed by elitist judges—will reassert their state sovereignty against escalating judicial supremacy.

From a moral and spiritual perspective, no court or government action can—to quote from the ill-informed ruling of Appeals Court Judge Richard Posner--"confer respectability on a sexual relationship" between two people of the same sex. Homosexual activists yearn to be told that their defining sin is not a sin at all—and legalizing genderless "marriage" is their holy grail to achieve that end. "Love is love," we are told, or rather scolded. But God is not mocked: the Scriptures are clear that homosexual practice is an offense against both God and the very bodies of those who practice it (as is all sexual immorality).

The truly loving thing for Christians to do is not to "bless" same-sex relationships but to guide men and women caught up in false homosexual identities to the One, Jesus, who will forgive them and guide them to a life pleasing to God.

Gordon Klingenschmitt: Supreme Court Letting Gays 'Recruit Your Kids'

Anti-LGBT activist and Colorado Republican state legislative candidate Gordon Klingenschmitt reacted today to the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear an appeal of lower court marriage equality rulings by asserting that “sodomy is still banned by God in all 50 states” and “God will have the last word.”

In an email to members of his Pray In Jesus Name project, Klingenschmitt lamented that “cruel judges now deny kids’ rights in 30 states,” telling his readers that conservatives must work even harder to “defend their children from such an agenda to normalize sin and recruit your kids.”

Unfair to Kids: Judges force homosexual "marriage" in 30 states

Every child has a right to a mom and dad. Cruel judges now deny kids' rights in 30 states.

Yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear any of seven possible appeals from five states that would protect traditional marriage between one man and one woman. This dereliction of duty allowed bad lower-court rulings to enforce homosexual "marriage" in 11 new states, against the will of the voters. Many children will now be told by the government, "You can't have a mother. You get two dads instead." That's unfair to kids.



THIS JUST IN: Sodomy is still banned by God in all 50 states. Gay marriage now "legal" in 30 states? Only 3 states voted for that, meaning it was imposed on kids in 27 states by oligarchs, against the voters' will. 38 states had bans before this judicial TYRANNY overruled the people's will. God will have the last word. …

Will Christians work this hard, to defend their children from such an agenda to normalize sin and recruit your kids? Legislation. Ballot Work. Courts. All fronts in all states.

Sadly, it appears some House Republicans are caving in without a fight. "The House has determined, in light of the Supreme Court’s opinion in Windsor, that it no longer will defend that [DOMA] statute," said lawyers for the House Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG).

But we are not done. We are fighting back. We will fight to defend traditional marriage as Jesus defined it in Matthew 19:4-6, between one man and one woman. We must encourage Congress to NOT give up the fight.

I met several Congressmen last year in DC, and although they are discouraged, they are not ready to quit. But they must hear from us, that we still care about traditional marriage. Let's send Congress a message today. Demand a Constitutional Marriage Amendment...

Stacy Swimp: Supreme Court Marriage Ruling Would Bring About Last Days

Anti-gay activist Stacy Swimp, a Michigan pastor, claimed last month that a Supreme Court ruling legalizing marriage equality throughout the country would bring America into the biblical Last Days.

If the Supreme Court were to issue a favorable marriage equality ruling, Swimp told Cleveland anti-gay activist Molly Smith in a September 23 interview, “I see America looking like what Jesus said the world looking like. He said, ‘As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be when the Son returns.’”

“You see,” he continued, “in Noah’s day, you had complete lawlessness, men did what was right in their own eyes, according to the Bible, and there were no moral boundaries that men respected. And so we are at the threshold in our global society.”

“If this happens to become law, you’re going to see complete chaos and lawlessness,” he said, adding that such a ruling would lead to “broken families” and “escalated crime.”

Later in the interview, Swimp argued that “homosexuality, lesbianism” is just “one component of lawlessness that we’re seeing in our society” and that the LGBT rights movement and “Islam and the global terrorism” are “working together to silence the gospel.”

He added that Christians are facing persecution in America today, while Muslims and Buddhists face none: “You don’t see Muslims, by the way, who disagree with marriage protection being persecuted in America. You don’t hear about Buddhists and all these other religions being persecuted while fighting for their religious freedom.”

“That’s right, it’s us as the Christians,” Smith agreed.

Rick Wiles: Obama 'Maliciously Infecting US Soldiers With Ebola'

Rick Wiles warned last week that a decision to send U.S. service members on a relief mission in West Africa to help contain the Ebola outbreak is more proof that President Obama’s “job is to destroy the United States of America, and he’s doing it quite well.”

The “Trunews” host said on Friday that President Obama is either out of his mind or is “maliciously infecting U.S. soldiers with Ebola so that it spreads through the American Armed Forces and they bring it back to the United States like World War I vets brought the Spanish flu back to America.”

“I’m shocked that American military commanders are letting this guy get away with it,” he added. “Are they stupid and incompetent or are they deliberately letting Ebola spread? The jury’s still out on this one. Either they are brain-dead stupid or they want Ebola to spread.”

Wiles also expressed fears that Obama will sabotage the public health response to the case of a person in Dallas diagnosed with Ebola because he is a “traitor” and a “foreign agent” who wants to bring down the U.S. from within.

Phyllis Schlafly: 'Overweight Woman In Charge Of The Secret Service' Couldn't 'Protect The President'

In an interview with Jacksonville radio host Cindy Graves on Friday, Phyllis Schlafly expressed her admiration for Rep. Michele Bachmann but seemed taken aback when Graves mentioned Joni Ernst, the Iowa Republican Senate candidate who is a lieutenant colonel in the Iowa Army National Guard.

After Schlafly heaped praise on the “wonderful” and “articulate” Bachmann, Graves asked Schlafly — a staunch opponent of allowing women to serve in the military — if she shared her admiration for Ernst “not only as a strong woman but also as a military leader, I think it’s refreshing.”

Schlafly curtly agreed before adding, “Of course, the Secret Service has taken a blow in the past week. They put this overweight woman in charge of the Secret Service and she was not able, really, to protect the president.”

Bachmann: ISIS Car Bombings Will Bring Down America, Thanks To Obama

While appearing on the Saturday broadcast of the End Times radio show “Understanding the Times with Jan Markell,” Rep. Michele Bachmann predicted that ISIS members are planning imminent attacks inside the U.S. and will make American cities experience levels of violence seen in Iraqi cities like Baghdad.

After arguing that ISIS members are entering the country as they illegally cross the southern border and “march through our United States airports,” Bachmann made the false claim that “President Obama released Baghdadi,” referring to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi. In fact, he was released during the Bush administration.

“I don’t want to see the car bombings and all of the havoc and chaos coming to the United States that we see in Baghdad,” she said. “Since we have the Islamic State come into the United States, we’ll see a wave of car bombings and bombings that occur here in the United States that would begin the process of destabilization to bring them to the point of defeating us here in the United States.”

Peter LaBarbera: LGBT Rights Advocates Want People To Be 'Ignorant'

Linda Harvey hosted Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality this weekend on her “Mission America” radio show, where the two activists warned that schools are using misleading information as part of their efforts to keep “promoting” homosexuality to children.

“This is such a betrayal of our vulnerable children,” Harvey lamented, criticizing the “mythology” surrounding homosexuality.

LaBarbera, for his part, denounced “politically correct” schools for making students “ignorant” by using LGBT-affirming lesson plans: “The kids are learning — they are so ignorant of so many basic facts and truth on this issue.”

Austin Miles: Obama Is Letting ISIS 'Set Up Training Camps' In America

Rev. Austin Miles writes in Renew America today that President Obama is allowing terrorists affiliated with ISIS “to set up training camps here, and to build mosques where the Koran is preached, supported by our tax money.”

Miles writes that Muslims are “manipulated” and under a “hypnotic” spell that leads them to commit “senseless killings,” adding that no Muslim “can be trusted” unless they leave the faith.

He does want you to know, however, that Muslims are very nice people, even though they have been “brainwashed into committing murder in the name of Allah.”

ISIS is already in America and we have already had a beheading by a Muslim in our own country with many more promised. Obama, who was PLACED in the Oval Office (not voted in) favors Islam above all other faiths. He has opened the borders to allow terrorists to enter America, to set up training camps here, and to build mosques where the Koran is preached, supported by our tax money.

The Koran is written poetically, disguising what it is actually saying. The reading of it is actually hypnotic which explains some of the senseless killings where it seems all human traits have been yanked out of these manipulated (otherwise decent) individuals.

Are there Muslims that can be trusted? Only those who renounce the Koran, and withdraw from the Mosques. Otherwise, even if they identify as "moderate," they are suspect since they all live under the dictates of The Koran and all of these terrorist crimes against humanity are by Muslims who are brainwashed into committing murder in the name of Allah.

This is personally painful since I have never met a Muslim I didn't like. Indeed, I once saved the life of a practicing Muslim in Springfield, Massachusetts. The problem is, that these people who can be so very gracious, helpful and sharing, and have contributed so much to the sciences, philosophy, architecture, art and literature, are being totally deceived into becoming what they are not. That is the real tragedy, since they are all on the road to Hell without knowing it. Hopefully they will come to their senses before it is too late. That is my prayer.

Laurie Roth: Obama Allowing ISIS To Send Ebola Patients To US So He Can Use Fake Vaccines To Track People

Right-wing talk show host Laurie Roth takes to BarbWire today to share a doozy of a conspiracy theory.

Roth starts by citing unfounded claims that Central American children are responsible for an outbreak of a respiratory disease in the U.S., which she blames on “disease flame thrower” President Obama.

That leads her to the crux of her argument, which is that ISIS has “peppered” people affected with Ebola “throughout many cities,” something that Obama has allowed to happen so that he can institute martial law and a “forced vaccination plan” that will “release something potentially fatal into our system, but also act as a tracker.”

By the way, Roth has spoken twice at the supposedly mainstream Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Now, ISIS — that we are pretending to attack — is bringing in their version of suicide bombers throughout America. According to the breaking research of Whalid and Ted Shoebat, (regular guests of my national radio show), ISIS is planning to bring in people through out [sic] America infected with EBOLA. They are most likely already peppered throughout many cities now.

Forget suicide bombers with explosives attached to them. They have evolved to the next level now. ISIS might as well join the disease party, so by Christmas we can have a nice variety package of destruction and horror…lets see, EVD 68, EBOLA, TB and Scabies. Anyone want some bloody slush with your Christmas hors d’oeuvres?

…And what is the purpose of all this disease, lack of protection and border security??? It appears to be potentially the “full meal deal” for Obama and his goals. 1) Establish over the next few years mindless, dependent and UN-American foreign voters and supporters for Obama and his goals. 2) Punish America for her achievements by riddling her with diseases and maiming her children. 3) Create a guise to declare martial law due to created outbreaks. Control speech, food, travel and health care. 4) Demand adults and children take some sort of mandated/mystery vaccination that kills off even more people.

My prediction is that a forced vaccination plan from Obama and his administration is on its way. This will not only allow someone put in control (so Obama can’t be blamed) to release something potentially fatal into our system, but also act as a tracker – the complete end of our privacy and freedom.

Larry Klayman: Deport Obama!

Right-wing legal activist Larry Klayman says President Obama must be “deported back to his native country,” arguing in a WorldNetDaily column on Friday that the president should “be tried, convicted and removed from our shores before he destroys everything the Founding Fathers bequeathed to us.”

Kentucky Activists Protest Mitt and Mitch Fundraiser

On Thursday, PFAW members joined MoveOn.org, Kentucky AFL-CIO, and other activists to protest Sen. Mitch McConnell’s pro-corporate agenda outside of a high-dollar fundraiser for the senator featuring Mitt Romney. The exclusive event was priced at $1,000-$5,000 a ticket.

Activists, standing up against big money in politics, called for Sen. McConnell to listen to Kentuckians and not just to the billionaires and corporations that fund his politics. They held signs that read “Ditch Mitch” and “Corporations are not People.”

 

Kentucky AFL-CIO President Bill Londrigan joined the protest, along with PFAW organizers and grassroots activists.

New Birther Line: 'I Would Be Focusing Real Hard On Who's The Mommy'

Nearly six years into Barack Obama’s presidency, birthers are still grasping for evidence that the president is lying somehow about who he is or where he was born.

In an interview with Denver radio host Peter Boyles this week, Mike Zullo, the “lead investigator” in Sheriff Joe Arpiao’s “Cold Case Posse” suggested a new lead for birthers: Maybe Obama’s mother wasn’t actually his mother!

Zullo told Boyles that he doesn’t know who Obama is, but “all that I can tell you is I don’t believe he is who he purports to be.”

He said that he disagreed with fellow conspiracy theorist Joel Gilbert’s assertion that the president’s real father was American labor organizer Frank Marshall DavisInstead, he said, “I would be focusing real hard on who’s the mommy.”

Allen West: Obama Will 'Flood The Country With Illegals'

Former congressman Allen West dedicated a blog post yesterday to railing against “the progressive socialists, Islamo-fascists and secular humanists” who “have all aligned themselves against our Constitutional Republic.” According to West, President Obama intends to “flood the country with illegals,” whom he suggested are to blame for a respiratory disease outbreak among children, despite having no evidence to substantiate his claim.

West is also furious that the federal government will provide $9 million in grants to groups such as the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, which are representing many of the Central American unaccompanied minors who have recently fled to the U.S.

As the American Immigration Council points out, a 2008 law requires that minors from non-contiguous nations be “placed into formal immigration court removal proceedings” and the government must also “ensure ‘to the greatest extent practicable’ that unaccompanied children in HHS custody have counsel, as described further below—not only ‘to represent them in legal proceedings,’ but ‘protect them from mistreatment, exploitation, and trafficking.’”

West, however, seems to think this is all a big slight to the troops: “It was just last week that Obama and his pen declared illegal aliens will be allowed to enlist in our military. Quite perplexing at a time when we’re ‘pink slipping’ active duty members. I guess Obama prefers illegals? Where is the $9 million for our own warriors?”

It amazes me how quickly we move from crisis to crisis with the Obama administration. Some time ago, we were glued to the news watching massive numbers of illegal aliens crossing our border, and somehow they’ve all just disappeared. Well, they always say follow the money — and it tells quite a story.

As the Washington Times reports, “The Obama administration will pay $9 million over the next two years to give taxpayer-funded attorneys to some of the illegal immigrant children who have surged across the U.S. border this year, the Health and Human Services Department said Tuesday. About 2,600 immigrants will be able to be represented by lawyers thanks to the funds, which were awarded in two grants to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, according to a notice to be published in the Federal Register on Thursday.”

Wait a minute. It was just last week that Obama and his pen declared illegal aliens will be allowed to enlist in our military. Quite perplexing at a time when we’re “pink slipping” active duty members. I guess Obama prefers illegals? Where is the $9 million for our own warriors?



“To end the surge at the border, the Obama administration should instead focus its efforts on deterring future border crossers and enforcing the laws against illegal entry into the United States,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican. “Without such actions, the flood of people attempting to cross the border illegally will only continue.” The administration’s move marks another effort to circumvent Congress.”

Sorry Chairman Goodlatte, this is exactly what Obama intends to do — flood the country with illegals — after all, that’s what he promised the radical Hispanic groups such as LULAC and La Raza. And this is being done quietly so as to not upset the midterm elections — but alas, we here will continue to expose the nefarious intents of Barack Hussein Obama and his progressive socialist acolytes. Yesterday, we asked the question about the correlation between the mysterious respiratory illness affecting our children and the influx of these illegal alien children. Makes you wonder…

Clearly Obama cares only about his progressive socialist agenda and legacy — not about American children who have dreams.



Ladies and gents, I present to you just another reason to vote out all Democrats that you can in November and remember that the progressive socialists, Islamo-fascists and secular humanists have all aligned themselves against our Constitutional Republic. Time to fight back.

Rep. Randy Weber: Can't Trust Obama On Ebola Because Of Benghazi

On Wednesday, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins invited Rep. Randy Weber to “Washington Watch” to discuss “the latest on the first Ebola case being reported in his state and what precautions are being taken to make sure it is contained.”

The Texas Republican used the opportunity to launch into long rant about how President Obama isn’t serious about fighting Ebola: “I don’t want to sound alarmist and we don’t want people to get cast into a panic but this administration, as you well know, has a real serious credibility gap on a whole lot of things when it comes to taking things serious. Whether it’s ISIL or ISIS, whether it’s IRS, Benghazi, you can go right down the list and so it doesn’t foment faith in people to think that our administration’s on top of things when they’ve got such an abysmal track record.”

Weber also claimed that President Obama’s decision to send U.S. service members to West Africa to help contain the Ebola outbreak was politically motivated, a point he illustrated with a golfing joke.

“This guy has a record of doing things from a political standpoint, whether it’s putting off the amnesty order he wants to do after the election, there’s a lot of things he does from a political standpoint,” he said. “The denial, you know, whether it’s guys jumping the fence at the White House and they’re saying their agents acted with restraint, the denial that comes out of this administration, I mean nobody getting fired. I don’t know if he’s playing golf, I don’t mean to totally disrespect the president because he’s got his job to do, but I think he needs to sit up and take notice on some of these things.”

Weber said Obama must arrive at the “day when he finally wakes up and realizes he’s not the smartest man in the room on every topic of interest there is and he should listen.”

Jody Hice: 'Who Could Possibly Be Offended' By School-Sponsored Prayer?

On his radio show earlier this week, Georgia Republican congressional candidate Jody Hice discussed the Tennessee cheerleading team that, in an effort to avoid legal action, replaced its traditional reading of a prayer over a loudspeaker with a moment of silence for individual prayer before games.

“We have a majority of people who want to have a prayer before a ballgame and yet we are rapidly becoming a society where the minority rule,” Hice lamented, adding, “If you’re in the majority in a situation like this, the minority rules. I don’t believe that is the intent of our Constitution.”

“Who could possibly be offended” by a school-sponsored sectarian prayer, Hice asked, recalling that in his school athletic years a prayer was read before every game and “I don’t recall anyone on either side of our competition every being taken off in an ambulance to the hospital.”

Jerry Boykin: 'Americans Need to Have More Babies' To Counteract Muslim Population

In a conference call this week with E.W. Jackson, Family Research Council vice president Jerry Boykin warned that to counteract the population growth of America’s Muslim minority, “Americans need to have more babies and populate this country with red-blooded patriotic Americans.”

Fearing that America would soon go the way of a Europe that he claimed is “hopelessly lost” to Muslim population growth, Boykin insisted that “Americans” (among whom he evidently doesn’t include Muslim-Americans) must increase the average birth rate to supersede that of the country’s less-than-one-percent Muslim minority. “It is a very serious issue, which is why Americans need to have more babies and populate this country with red-blooded patriotic Americans,” he said.

Boykin also claimed that President Obama’s “identity is more with Islam than with anything else,” citing myths about the president’s the so-called “apology tour” in 2009 and his supposed education in a “madrassa.”

“And I think that all goes back to his roots, to the fact that he was raised in an Islamic environment,” he said. “I think he went to a madrassa for, it’s undetermined, but at least five years of his life. I think that’s his comfort zone. And I think he was in Jeremiah Wright’s church as a matter of convenience, but his identity is more with Islam than with anything else.”

In reality, Obama attended a Catholic school and a secular public school in Indonesia.

Minnesota Anti-LGBT Activists Turn To Scare Tactics, Religious Persecution Rhetoric In Opposing School Trans-Inclusive Policy

Opponents of a proposed framework for allowing transgender students to participate in school sports in Minnesota has come under fire from anti-LGBT activists in the state, including from the Minnesota Child Protection League, which ran a full-page ad in the Minneapolis Star Tribune this week with the message: “A male wants to shower beside your 14-year-old daughter. Are YOU ok with that?”

At a hearing yesterday, the group that oversees high school sports in Minnesota tabled the proposal until December after speakers warned that the policy would amount to “transgender promotion” and because some students may have religious objections to transgender identity, it would “intentionally endorse one particular religious view over another.”

The Minnesota Child Protection League claims that its transphobic ad generated over 10,000 emails to the sports board. Andy Birkey with The Colu.mn reports that “most of the speakers in opposition” at yesterday’s hearing “had a connection with either the Child Protection League or the Minnesota Family Council,” a state affiliate of Focus on the Family’s political arm.

Birkey recorded some of the most incendiary rhetoric against the measure:

Attorney Renee Carlson was one of several speakers who were misinformed about the policy, specifically the sensitivity training element.

She said the policy forces schools to “embrace transgenderism through sensitivity training, training that the school does not have an option to decline according to this policy” and “imposes a narrative regarding human sexuality that is different from my own as a parent and leaves no other options.”

Becky Swenson asked, “How much will it cost to provide training? She lamented that OutFront Minnesota was consulted about the policy and said. “I wonder if the true goal isn’t transgender promotion… I’m sad to see that any disagreement is called hate speech.”

Religious school also testified that they objected to the proposed policy on religious ground.

Dr. Jeff Mattner of the Association of Christian Schools International asked the board not to step on the rights of religious schools to exercise their faith and convictions.”

Rev. Fredric Hinz of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, a Lutheran denomination that rejects LGBT rights and advocated ex-gay conversion therapy, echoed some of MNCPL’s misinformation. “We are also disappointed that the proposed policy makes no apparent efforts to acknowledge the financial burden that it may impose on participating schools,” he said. “We find it ironic that while going to great lengths to advocate for greater sensitivity to the concern of transgender students, the proposed policy seems to lack any sensitivity to the vast majority of student athletes who may be forced to forfeit their privacy rights in sharing public facilities.”

He added that his faith rejects people being transgender.

“It is a policy that presumes that our true essence as human beings is somehow separable from our bodies that our bodies are somehow meaningless. This is a view which stands in direct contradiction of the religious views of the vast majority of students and their parents…to adopt this policy would be to intentionally endorse one particular religious view over another.”

Brian Sullivan head of Maranatha Christian Academy and Living Word Christian Center said he opposed it because of “deeply held religious conviction… whether it’s intended or not, it discriminates against these schools on the basis of religion.”

Michele Lentz of the Minnesota Child Protection League said her group is not spreading misinformation about the issue and defended her ad. “If you ran an ad, we wouldn’t have had to. Now parents know.” She challenged the very idea of transgender people. “The underlying assumption is that gender is a choice and not a matter of biology, which is absurd but that is what is at the heart of the controversy.”

Pat Robertson Baselessly Blames Central American Kids For Enterovirus Outbreak

Pat Robertson is pretty sure that Central American youth are responsible for the outbreak of Enterovirius D-68 in the U.S., even though the report which sparked his remarks made no mention of any connection to immigrants.

As we’ve noted before, there is no evidence linking immigrants to the respiratory disease and the CDC has said there’s “no connection.” But since Dr. Rush Limbaugh thinks it’s the case, then it must be true!

“I don’t know if anybody has done an analysis and it may be way off the wall as to the fact we’ve had this flood of children coming across the border from Central America, did they carry with them viruses that we were not familiar with in the United States and haven’t built up immunity to? It’s entirely possible,” he said, before explaining that he once came down with “a severe intestinal problem” after working with Romanian children.

“There were thousands and thousands coming across the Rio Grande and then they’re spread across the states all across America, I don’t know, it’s just one of those things, but I do know what happened to me trying to love-up on those children, they are so sweet, they get in your lap, and you want to kiss them, and they want to kiss you, and they want to hug you, and all that other stuff, and it was beautiful and we were giving them toys and they were so happy but they left me with a little bug,” he said.

“We had antibiotics for it so it knocked it out pretty fast but it’s very unpleasant and that’s where it came from, according to my doctor it was those little children in Central — I mean Eastern Europe.”

At Moscow Conference, Don Feder Warned That Sexual Revolution Will Lead To Human Extinction

Last month, a number of Americans joined anti-gay and anti-abortion-rights activists from around the world at a Kremlin-backed conference on “Large Families and the Future of Humanity” in Moscow. The conference was originally organized under the name of the Illinois-based World Congress of Families, but WCF “suspended” its planning of the event after Russia seized part of Ukraine…then the event went ahead as planned with only nominal changes.

Two WCF officials, Don Feder and Larry Jacobs, attended the conference officially in their personal capacities, and Feder gave a speech on how the sexual revolution will make the human race extinct, the text of which he helpfully posted yesterday on BarbWire.

Some choice excerpts:

The effect of the Sexual Revolution on fertility has been profound, far-reaching and possibly irreversible.

For the first time in history, just under half the world’s population of child-bearing age uses some form of birth control. By 2015, the global contraceptives market will generate an estimated $17.2 billion annually.

Generally, this is financed by governments, businesses or international agencies. Many species have become extinct. Ours may be the first to finance its own extinction.

Just as the declining birth rates are the result of the Sexual Revolution, the later is a product of something called Cultural Marxism – a movement associated with Antonio Gramsci (he of the “long march through the culture”) Georg Lukacs, the Frankfurt School and Herbert Marcuse. Cultural Marxism was their answer to the failure of worldwide revolution after the First World War. Gramsci theorized that the family and the church gave workers a “false class consciousness” that made them immune to the appeals of Marxism.

The solution, then, was to destroy family and religion – and what better way to do that than to foster licentious (“free love” in the vernacular of the era), and a society oriented toward mindless pleasure, rather than childbearing, family formation and the search for higher meaning.

While there’s no proof that dramatically declining fertility is what Cultural Marxists wanted, if you think about it logically that’s the natural consequence of undermining faith and family and a highly eroticized society where family is viewed as an obstacle to self-fulfillment and children as a burden.

We won’t find our way out of the forest of demographic winter until the Sexual Revolution is overthrown – its premises rejected, its prophets exposed and its dogma debunked.

Ultimately, the Sexual Revolution is about death – abortion, contraception (preventing life from happening), sexually-transmitted disease, pornography and promiscuity, in place of marriage, fidelity and childbearing.
