Ted Yoho: Boehner's Leadership Reminiscent Of A 'Communist Country'

Rep. Ted Yoho, the Florida Republican who helped lead yesterday’s unsuccessful revolt against John Boehner’s re-election as House speaker, warned after the vote that attempts by the House GOP leadership to punish defectors by removing them from committee posts are akin to communist oppression.

“We’ve grown up in a country that honors free speech,” Yoho told WorldNetDaily’s Radio America. “If I can’t speak what’s on my mind, if I can’t do what the people of my district sent me up here [to do] and have that voice of dissension without fear of retribution, I’m not in a free country. That would be something you would expect in China, Cuba or any other communist country.”

Yoho also suggested that several GOP House members told him that they would join him in opposing Boehner but ended up voting for the speaker’s re-election.

He told host Greg Corombos that “there are members that said ‘if you hit twenty votes, we’ll jump on and vote with you, but if you don’t have that many we’re not going to,’ and when we hit that, you can’t find them.”

Pat Robertson: Bob McDonnell, Like Adam, Was Seduced By A Woman Into Corruption

Televangelist Pat Robertson today put a new spin on former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s failed “throw the wife under the bus” defense strategy: comparing McDonnell to Adam. “The 700 Club” host explained that just as Eve seduced Adam into eating fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, McDonnell’s wife, Maureen, likewise led the governor astray.

“He’s like Adam, you know, Eve was the one that got seduced by the snake but Adam ate the fruit and I think Bob McDonnell got seduced,” he said.

Robertson, reacting to the sentencing of McDonnell to two years in prison, also repeated his previous allegation that the Republican governor was the victim of a political prosecution.

McDonnell attended Robertson’s Regent University (then Christian Broadcasting University Network University), where he wrote his notorious thesis on “The Republican Party's Vision for the Family,” and has remained close to the televangelist. A Robertson-led charity offered McDonnell a job as a way to help him avoid jail time.

Ken Ham Demands Taxpayers Pay For 'One Of The Greatest Evangelist Outreaches Of Our Day'

Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis was a guest on American Family Radio today, where he discussed with Tim Wildmon his new project building a Noah’s Ark theme park in Kentucky. Ham insisted that the theme park, a complement to Ham's Creation Museum, has come under attack from “intolerant” liberals who want to deny it taxpayer funding.

Last month, Kentucky’s tourism board announced that the Noah’s Ark park wouldn’t be eligible for an $18 million tourism tax break because Answers In Genesis intends to use the site to proseletize and refuses to promise not to discriminate based on religion in its hiring. The board noted that “[s]tate tourism tax incentives cannot be used to fund religious indoctrination or otherwise be used to advance religion," but Ham cried persecution, complaining that Kentucky had violated his “fundamental rights” by witholding the tax break.

In the American Family Radio interview, Ham continued to portray himself as the victim of “intolerant” liberals (like Bill Nye) while also inadvertently bolstering the tourism board’s case by announcing that the Noah’s Ark park will be “one of the greatest evangelist outreaches of our day, of our period in history.”

Far-Right Pundit: Leelah Alcorn's Death Proves LGBT Advocates Are 'Satan's Little Soldiers'

Renew America pundit Louie Verrecchio reacted to the death of 17-year-old transgender girl Leelah Alcorn today by lashing out at LGBT rights supporters as “nothing more than Satan’s little soldiers.”

Verrecchio, who refused to use Alcorn’s name and preferred gender pronoun, said that her parents deserve “admiration” for rejecting her transgender identity, which was cited in Alcorn’s suicide note.

He wrote that Alcorn was “mentally-ill” and a “victim of the LGBT war” on truth.

Predictably, the LGBT lobby and their friends in the media and elsewhere, having once successfully spun the drug-related murder of meth addicted dope dealer Matthew Shepard into a cause célèbre for the gay rights movement, are now attempting to make of Joshua Alcorn a poster boy for the so-called "transgender" cause.

Likewise predictable is the shameless behavior of professional homo-agitators, like Dan Savage, who have embarked full throttle on a campaign to vilify his grieving parents; people who may very well deserve, in addition to our sympathy, our admiration.

According to Savage, Joshua Alcorn's parents "threw her [sic] in front of that truck. They should be ashamed – but 1st they need to be shamed. Charges should be brought ... Child abuse. Neglect. Reckless endangerment. Manslaughter."

Their real crime?

Failing to consent to their mentally-ill teenaged son's desire to have his penis surgically removed, and worse still, being self-identified followers of Christ.

While no one knows every detail concerning Joshua Alcorn's upbringing, this much is certain; this confused child is just one more in a growing number of victims of the LGBT war on anything and everything that even hints at the existence of objective truth, in particular, as it concerns human sexuality.

Writing in his suicide note, Joshua Alcorn pled, "My death needs to mean something," and indeed it does:

It means that LGBT activism has never really been about authentic compassion for those who suffer with what mental health professionals call "same sex attraction" and "body dysmorphic disorder."

At its most basic, the objective toward which the movement labors extends no further than attempting to legitimize a claim of absolute personal autonomy in determining what constitutes morally acceptable behavior.

In other words, even if only in ignorance, the LGBT warriors of the world are truly nothing more than Satan's little soldiers; revelers in a cause founded squarely upon the greatest lie ever told; namely, that humankind, apart from the Creator, shall be as gods, "knowing good and evil."

Tony Perkins Regrets Direct Election Of Senators Because It Led To Gay Marriage

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, who was once a candidate for U.S. Senate in Louisiana, seems upset that voters can directly elect their state’s two senators, a power that was held by state legislatures until the adoption of the 17th Amendment in 1913. Speaking on his radio program yesterday, Perkins called the amendment “one of the first places we got off in terms of how our government is functioning,” lamenting that “senators are no longer accountable to the states.”

Having voters instead of state lawmakers elect senators, Perkins lamented, “had a drastic impact upon judicial appointees that the Senate has signed off on that overturned state laws, like we’ve seen this rash of overturning these state marriage amendments, that never would’ve happened if these senators who approved these judges were still held accountable to state legislatures.”

Maybe the drafters of the 17th Amendment were just playing the long game for the radical homosexual agenda.

GOP Rep. Blasts Anti-Boehner Group As 'Bad Actors' Who 'Thrive' On 'Media Attention'

Rep. Renee Ellmers blasted Tea Party Republicans yesterday for launching a half-baked movement to unseat House Speaker John Boehner in today’s leadership election. In an interview on Newsmax TV yesterday, the North Carolina Republican called the group challenging Boehner, which is led by Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, and Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., “bad actors” who are “acting out” because they “thrive” on “media attention.”

“Those who are acting out right now, though, are getting some media attention,” she said. “That’s all it is. It’s media attention. These are folks that thrive on it. They’re bad actors right now because they’re acting as if they’re going against the party and there’s really no substance to it whatsoever. If they truly meant what their plan was for a new speaker of the House or moving an agenda in a different way, then they should have acted months ago and they did not.”

When host Ed Berliner asked Ellmers, who was elected in the 2010 Tea Party wave, if the rebelling members of Congress were Tea Party members, she distanced herself: “I don’t know what they associate themselves with, but I can tell you that they get a lot of media attention.”

Phyllis Schlafly: Introduce Male Quotas And End Student Loans To Reduce Female College Enrollment

Distraught that women are outpacing men in college enrollments, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly took to WorldNetDaily this week to float the idea that colleges should enforce a gender quota to even out admissions to the benefit of men. Responding to a 2010 New York Times article, Schlafly wondered if colleges should set male admissions quotas to ensure that student bodies are “half women and half men.”

Another proposal Schlafly put in the mix is to “stop granting college loans, thereby forcing students to take jobs to pay for their tuition and eliminate time for parties, perhaps even wiping out time for fraternities and sororities.”

Schlafly also called for colleges to stop enforcing Title IX, which prevents sex discrimination in education, as a way to attract men, alleging that the anti-discrimination measure “removes a primary motivation for young men to go to college, many of whom want to try out for a sport even if they are not good enough to make the team.”

All of this, the right-wing activist insists, would actually benefit women because it would give them more available men to date.

The New York Times published a provocative news story called “The New Math on Campus.” No, it’s not about the failure of Common Core to teach arithmetic; it’s about the changing ratio of males to females on most college campuses.

Long ago when I went to college, campuses were about 70 percent male, and until 1970 it was still nearly 60 percent. Today, however, the male percentage has fallen to the low 40s on most campuses.

Colleges claim they grant admissions based on academic merit, and girls come out of high school with better grades than boys. But that doesn’t always mean they are smarter or more capable of doing college work or succeeding after graduation.

Boys do far better on average than girls on the SAT test for mathematics, which means that boys are better prepared than girls for STEM majors in college. This has been true every year for more than 40 years.

Nearly twice as many boys as girls attain very high scores on the math SAT, with an immense difference at the high end. But the job market for STEM graduates is not as good as it should be, due to corporations’ preference for hiring lower-paid, easy-to-control foreigners on H-1B visas, so many American guys decide that the high cost of an engineering degree is not worth it.

A shocking 46 percent of recent college graduates work in jobs that do not require a college degree. Boys are more likely than girls to look at the cost-benefit tradeoff of going to college. The imbalance of far more women than men at colleges has been a factor in the various sex scandals that have made news in the last couple of years.

So, what’s the solution? One solution might be to impose the duty on admissions officers to arbitrarily admit only half women and half men. Another solution might be to stop granting college loans, thereby forcing students to take jobs to pay for their tuition and eliminate time for parties, perhaps even wiping out time for fraternities and sororities. I went through college while working a full-time manual-labor job, and I don’t regret a minute of it; it was a great learning experience.

Another solution would be to reinstate all the men’s sports that were canceled by an extremist feminist application of Title IX, the federal law that prohibits discrimination against female students. The feminists have misused that law to abolish many men’s sports in order to achieve a statistical equality between the percentage of men playing on college sports teams and the percentage of male enrollment in college.

The feminists have abolished more than 2,200 men’s college sports teams since 1981, such as wrestling, gymnastics, track, golf and even some football in order to limit the number of male players to Title IX guidelines. That removes a primary motivation for young men to go to college, many of whom want to try out for a sport even if they are not good enough to make the team.

The popularity of the new college football playoff system illustrates how successful men’s college sports can be for participants and fans alike. But when colleges eliminate men’s sports, women are hurt by the resulting gender imbalance in enrollment.

Troy Newman: Replace Satanic Abortion Providers With Anti-Choice Crisis Pregnancy Centers

In an interview with Adam McManus of Generations Radio last week, Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman described his group’s work targeting abortion providers as a “remove and replace” operation to shut down abortion clinics, which he equated with Satan, and replace them with anti-choice crisis pregnancy centers.

“We’re saving over 600,000 babies a year by removing these horrible death centers and replacing them with Christ-centered pregnancy help centers,” Newman boasted to McManus. Operation Rescue, which keeps thorough records of abortion providers in its efforts to shut them down, recently reported a 23 percent drop in surgical abortion providers over the past five years, the result of a variety of forces.

He cited a passage from John comparing Jesus — the crisis pregnancy centers — to “the thief,” or Satan — the abortion providers: “This is the ‘remove and replace.’ Remember, John 10:10 says that ‘the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy but I’ve come to give life, and it to the fullest.’ So, who’s the abortionist? He steals the women’s money, he kills their baby and destroys their life, but as a Christian, we’re going to give you life and it to the fullest. It’s the ultimate remove and replace operation.”

Movie Night With Glenn Beck's Cohosts: 'Imitation Game' Was Too Gay, Taya Kyle Should 'Get Back In The Kitchen'

Glenn Beck’s cohost Jeff Fisher had a few words today for Taya Kyle, the wife of the late Chris Kyle, whose autobiography is the basis for the movie “American Sniper”: “Get back in the kitchen, woman.” 

Fisher made the remark during a discussion of the marital problems between Chris and Taya Kyle, which play a prominent role in the film, comments that were quickly mocked by the other commentator.

Gray mocked Fischer’s comments, but had his own issues with current cinema, complaining that “The Imitation Game,” a biopic about British codebreaker and computer scientist Alan Turing, who was forced to undergo chemical castration because he was gay, “went too far on the whole, this is about a gay agenda thing.”

Glenn Beck: Save America And The GOP By Electing Louie Gohmert Speaker Of The House

After failing to recruit Rep. Louie Gohmert to make a bid for the U.S. Senate, Glenn Beck is now cheering on the Texas congressman’s attempt to unseat John Boehner as Speaker of the House.

“Louie is not going to compromise, Louie is the guy. We have another chance, America, we have another chance. Please don’t pass this signpost, please, there’s another exit, take it,” Beck said on his show today, adding that conservatives should consider themselves “done with the Republican Party” if Boehner secures re-election.

“Shut the switchboard down, tell everybody you know in the freedom movement, ‘Louie Gohmert.’ Call them now,” he said.

Gohmert also appeared on Beck’s show to outline his policy agenda, which would include gutting the social safety net and stopping the House from turning into a “dictatorship.”

God Came To Jim Bakker In The Bath To Tell Him That He's Punishing America For Abortion Rights

On New Year’s Day, televangelist Jim Bakker informed viewers of his show about what God has in store for America in 2015, including increased tensions with North Korea and violence from Islamist extremists, something that no one else could have predicted.

He warned, however, that the U.S. military will fail to ever win a war because Americans are “mocking God, taking God out of schools, making it legal to murder the babies, [taking] the Ten Commandments down and literally denying the word of God.”

Bakker also told his audience that he received divine revelations while he was taking a bath.

Todd Starnes: 'Repugnant' Newsweek 'Blasted The Bible' By Disagreeing With Conservatives

Fox News commentator Todd Starnes is outraged that the recent Newsweek cover story on the Bible poked holes in the many ways right-wing activists use scripture to try and push their political agenda.

Since the Religious Right often frames criticisms of their political and social views as direct assaults on religion and God, it came as no surprise that Starnes told American Family Radio host Kevin McCullough last week that the magazine is actually attacking the Bible.

“They’ve got a 16-page diatribe blasting the Bible and evangelical Christians, it is the most repugnant, repulsive thing I have ever read,” Starnes said. “This is exegesis excrement.”

Starnes wrote in his Fox News column last week that he’s outraged that the magazine “portrays Evangelical Christians as homophobic, right-wing fundamentalist hypocrites” and seems to take joy in “bashing the Baby Jesus and Sarah Palin.”

Linda Harvey Marks The New Year By Railing Against Gay Rights

Mission America’s Linda Harvey decided to ring in the new year by celebrating the GOP’s midterm election victory, calling it a “hopeful sign” that Americans are ready to rise up against “cowardly Republicans, destructive Democrats, vicious feminists and homosexual bullies.”

“These folks are showing all the signs of self-destruction,” she said. “The loony left does not represent America and their ideas are mostly poison.”

After calling on conservatives to get “ready for battle,” Harvey warned that gay rights supporters are bent on harming children, claiming that “our toxic culture is stealing the innocence and dimming the futures of our offspring.”

Anti-Gay Activist Wrote A Poem About Michael Sam Kissing His Boyfriend

Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, the anti-gay activist who once claimed that people were “forced” to watch Michael Sam kiss his boyfriend and urged Sam to seek ex-gay therapy or face “notoriety among millions of us,” has now penned a poem about seeing Sam’s kiss.

LaBarbera has regularly posted censored photos of Sam kissing his boyfriend and apparently hasn’t gotten over the kiss.

The poem is really something, and includes memorable lines such as, “We don’t want to see this man-on-man!” and “why are so many diseases linked to ‘sex’ in the anus?”

Since it’s New Year’s Eve, we’re having a little fun here at AFTAH: below is a poem I wrote playing loosely off the lyrics, rhythm and meter of Dr. Seuss’ “Green Eggs and Ham” (you know, the one with “Sam I am”). Although it’s light, the message is serious: public celebration of perversion is indecent–and another harmful and obnoxious by-product of “gay” and “same-sex marriage” advocacy. Sure, I’ll be chided by humorless homosexuals and “progressive” hacks who bristle at anything characterizing homosexuality as immoral, destructive and changeable. But who cares: LGBTQ activists attack, slander and lie about AFTAH all the time anyway. So enjoy…or not. Happy New Year!

…P.S. On a very serious note, please pray for Michael Sam and others caught up in homosexuality, that they would accept Christ and become overcomers who leave their sinful lifestyle behind, as many others have [see this "Ex-Gay Truth" site].

I Saw the Kiss by Michael Sam. It Made Me Mad. He Kissed a Man!

By Peter LaBarbera

I saw the kiss by Michael Sam..
It made me mad–he kissed a man!

That’s something I don’t want to see
It’s wrong, unnatural, and it’s not just me.

Many now say, “Homosexuality is OK.”
But God says there’s a better way.

He made men for women, and women for men.
So why are “gays” so prideful then?

Please, no public same-sex kisses, Michael Sam.
We don’t want to see this man-on-man!

Not in a boat, not in a car
This public perversion goes too far!

Not in the store or on a bus
This same-sex stuff, it brings disgust.

Not at the movies or on TV
It’s wrong, unnatural, can’t you see?!

I don’t want my kids to think it’s right
So please, please, keep it out of sight!

Why is it always in our faces?
This sin–celebrated in so many places?

Even at football and baseball games
We have to pretend homosexuality’s the same.

Young kids exposed to same-sex acts,
When parents just wanna’ have fun and relax.

“Well,” said Michael Sam, “let me ask you this:
“Do you get mad when men and women kiss?!”

Man and woman, that’s Nature’s way.
As long as there’s not too much PDA.

“But can’t you see, it’s who I am?!
“I’m gay, accept me!” begged Michael Sam.

I disagree–it’s not who you are, it’s what you do.
Hey, haven’t you had a girlfriend or two?

Yes, but this is now and that was then.
My “sexual orientation”…hey, it’s towards men!

No, Michael Sam insisted, I’m gay.
Can’t you see I was born that way?

Why must you hate gays like me?
“Hate?” I said. “I don’t hate you, I just disagree!”

You already changed from straight to perverse.
Why can’t the process work in reverse?

Many like you once thought they were that way.
But they left homosexuality behind and are now EX-gay!

Men like DL Foster and Stephen Black
Who lived as “gay” for years but then turned back.

And EX-lesbians, too, like Charlene Cothran.
Have left the “gay” life to follow God’s plan.

Besides, homosexuality’s not safe; you should see…
The alarming stats on MSM [men who have sex with men] from the CDC.

Almost every case of young male HIV
Is linked to the practice of gay sodomy.

Sure, the PC sports writers will all say
They couldn’t be happier that you’re “gay”

Some have compared you with the great 42.
But he broke the color barrier;
Homosexuality’s just a sin people DO!

I do not mean to pick a fight
When I say most Blacks don’t think homosexuality’s a “civil right.”

Far from a “right,” Michael. In fact, it’s wrong.
Must I put this in a song?

Michael shot back: “Not wrong at all, it’s who I am!
“I’m gay. My name is Michael Sam.”

“God made me black and blessed me with gayness.”
Blessed you?! Then why are so many diseases linked to “sex” in the anus?

No, God made you black–not ‘gay,’” said I.
“You’ve chosen to believe a lie!”

You can’t change your skin color, that’s a fact.
But homosexuality? That’s only an act.

And conduct we don’t want to see–at all!
Not on a train, or at the mall.

Not at the beach or in the gym.
Don’t be a poster boy for sexual sin!

We don’t want to see your “gay” kisses.
God’s ideal for sex and love homosexuality misses.

But I will pray for you, Michael Sam.
I’ll pray to the One who told Moses, “I AM WHO AM.”

If you believe in Jesus and turn from your sin,
Behold God’s kingdom: He’ll welcome you in!

Just remember, it’s God, not man, we answer to.
And He’s prepared a virtuous path for you.

No, He can’t bless your same-sex behavior.
But He’ll give you an “abundant life” with the Savior.

And no “hate” here–just God’s people’s love for the lost.
A price was paid for my sins and yours, at great cost.

Thanks for the chat,
I hope you see…

That you and I can disagree
Without me hating you, or you hating me.
