American Decency Association: Gays And Lesbians 'Deserve The Death Penalty'

In a column today criticizing growing support for marriage equality in the U.S., Chris Johnson of the American Decency Association said that gay people, like other egregious sinners, “deserve the death penalty.”

Johnson, commenting on a recent blog post by Southern Baptist Convention official Albert Mohler, insists “we must love our fellow sinners, but it is not loving to call good what a just God has called evil.”

“The laws of God cannot be overruled or deemed unconstitutional,” he writes. “Of course, we ALL break those laws and being a homosexual doesn't make a man a sinner any more or less than being a gossip. Both crimes deserve the death penalty, and only the one who relies on the righteousness of Christ can escape it.”

We've moved a long way from 1996 when Democrat president Bill Clinton signed the Defense of Marriage Act into law, which solidified marriage as being between a man and a woman for federal purposes. Eighteen years later, the executive office is not defending that law, a portion of it has been ruled unconstitutional, and 19 states recognize homosexual "marriage."

According to Gallup, support for homosexual marriage has doubled in the same time frame. In '96, 27% of those polled said that homosexual "marriages" should be recognized by the law as valid. In 2014, 55% expressed that sentiment.

In the midst of this tidal shift of morality - when, as Dr. Mohler says, "the refusal to celebrate [homosexuality] is now condemned" - Christianity is left out to dry.



The church is not a Christian congress or Supreme Court. The laws of God cannot be overruled or deemed unconstitutional.

Of course, we ALL break those laws and being a homosexual doesn't make a man a sinner any more or less than being a gossip. Both crimes deserve the death penalty, and only the one who relies on the righteousness of Christ can escape it.



Yes, we must love our fellow sinners, but it is not loving to call good what a just God has called evil.

Even if all other arguments were to escape us, i.e. church tradition, science, and logic, our faith would require obedience.

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/27/14

  • Pastor Steve Kern, husband of rabidly anti-gay Oklahoma legislator Sally Kern, lost his own bid for state office yesterday.
  • William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is organizing "71 rallies across the country this weekend to rally support for the nation's beleaguered law enforcement officers and veterans."
  • Mat Staver says the fact that judges keep striking down gay marriage bans is undermining the legitimacy of the judiciary: "When judges begin to cross the line - and I think they certainly do when they have the audacity to say that you cannot affirm the natural, created order of marriage as between a man and a woman - that ultimately undermines confidence of the people in the judiciary."
  • The American Decency Association is targeting Michigan Governor Rick Snyder for agreeing to speak to The Islamic Society of North America because ISNA "is a radical Muslim organization that owns and runs mosques throughout North America, functioning as an 'umbrella organization' and 'clearinghouse' to connect all Muslim activities in the United States."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer spent an entire segment of his radio broadcast today discussing Michael Sam's showering habits.

For Conservatives, Boycotts Are Noble Efforts When They Support Them, Otherwise It's 'Economic Terrorism'

It was only two years ago that conservative activists were irate that gay rights supporters dared to boycott Chick-fil-A because of donations to anti-gay groups.

Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel, for example, said he was outraged by liberals “intimidating” the restaurant chain, and described a similar pressure campaign against the Charity Give Back Group, which was also making contributions to anti-gay political organizations, as “economic terrorism” and proof that gay rights advocates “want to see us behind bars.”

Today, the same Matt Barber called for a boycott of Target over the company’s public support for marriage equality:

Target is filing legal briefs in court cases intended to win marriage rights for homosexuals and lesbians. Matt Barber, Vice President of Liberty Counsel Action and Founder of Barbwire.com, tells OneNewsNow it's a slap in the face to millions of pro-family customers who support true marriage between one man and one woman.

“It is just poor business,” he says. “Target, just like other corporations across the country, should at least remain neutral in this ongoing culture war. And at best, they should be endorsing the age old institution of natural marriage, which is the cornerstone to any healthy society.”

He says it's time for the public to speak up with a strong and united voice.

“I hope people will go into Target stores across the country and tell them that they are no longer going to buy products there because Target has joined in the attack on the institution of natural marriage,” he says. “They need to let it be known that they will take their business elsewhere and tell why they are doing so. That's what individuals can do about this.”

In fact, Barber’s boycott hypocrisy was already well established, as he and his group have previously backed boycotts and pressure campaigns against McDonalds, Starbucks, Lowe’s, Pay Pal, and companies that say “Happy Holidays.”

The National Organization for Marriage, which led boycotts against Starbucks and General Mills, yesterday launched a Boycott Target campaign.

The American Decency Association is also backing the Target boycott and urging supporters to cut up their Target credit cards:

Besides not shopping at Target, here a couple of other suggested actions to take:

- If you have a Target credit card, cut it up and return it to the company, or send copies of past receipts, with a note expressing your displeasure at the company’s choosing to align with the LGBT agenda instead of remaining neutral on this issue.

- If you know of a family member planning a wedding or expecting a baby, urge them not to use Target’s bridal and baby registry.

The group directs members to email the Minnesota-based company the following message:

For years Target has worked hard to provide quality products at a reasonable price. You have treated your employees and your customers well. Yet with Target’s recent decision to choose sides in the divisive cultural debate over homosexual marriage, you have put your focus on politics over products.

In 2012 Target affirmed its neutral position on this issue as a Target spokesperson stated: “We recognize that there is a broad range of strongly held views on the Minnesota Marriage amendment.”

I am one that holds to the definition of marriage that has stood for all time – the union of one man and one woman. Millions of others share my beliefs. In fact, A 2013 Star Tribune Minnesota poll revealed that Minnesotans were virtually split on this issue with 46 percent in support and 44 percent opposed, with 10 percent undecided.

Yet Target has chosen to offend half of the population in Minnesota, as well as the populations in other states where the opposition to homosexual marriage is often even higher!

I simply cannot support a company that blatantly undermines my values. Unless Target returns to a position of neutrality regarding this issue, you have lost me as a customer - and I will encourage my friends and family to also shop elsewhere. I strongly urge you to stick to selling quality products, instead of taking sides in promoting a divisive ideology.

I look forward to your response.

Religious Right Group Warns 'Nebuchadnezzar' Obama Is Persecuting Christians With LGBT Rights Push

The American Decency Association is still reeling from President Obama’s executive order barring federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT employees, warning that under his administration “homosexuality trumps religious liberty.”

“There is no good news in our government affirming a lifestyle that leads to destruction,” writes Lisa Van Houten of the ADA in a recent post on the organization’s website. “As greater discrimination and even persecution comes, may you and I not bow to Nebuchadnezzar, but stand for what is faithful and true.”

On July 20 President Obama used his pen (not his phone) to once again usurp the role of Congress, mandating an executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

As the law by authoritarian decree was signed to the cheers from homosexual activists gathered in the room, someone shouted: “Amen!” to which President Obama responded. “Amen! Amen! We have the amen corner here! Don’t get me started preaching.”

What our president “preaches” certainly isn’t gospel truth. There is no good news in our government affirming a lifestyle that leads to destruction. (Romans 1)

In essence this edict from President Obama mandates that all federal contractors and subcontractors -- regardless of their religious and moral convictions -- give special treatment to homosexuals, transgenders, and cross-dressers in the workplace. Such legislation - referred to as ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act) - has long been coveted by LGBT activists.

This puts sexual behaviors on the same level of immutable characteristics as race and ethnicity. It also elevates LGBT affiliation over and above the first amendment freedom of religion and the free exercise of those religious beliefs.

Just weeks earlier the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the religious freedom of the Green family, the owners of Hobby Lobby, to not provide abortifacients to their employees (required under ObamaCare) due to their Christian convictions.

Now with a stroke of his pen, President Obama mandated that an employer doing any type of work with the federal government must leave his religious beliefs at the door. Homosexuality trumps religious liberty.



What will be the impact as our religious liberty is further stripped away? And even more importantly, what will be our response? As greater discrimination and even persecution comes, may you and I not bow to Nebuchadnezzar, but stand for what is faithful and true. Do I hear an Amen?

Cain TV Editor Doesn't Want To Think About 'Dude On Dude Action' At Burger King

The editor of Herman Cain’s website is upset by the news that Burger King is planning to sell an LGBT pride themed burger at one San Francisco location, but is consoled by the fact that his own ability to cook has landed him a “super-hot wife” who’s “a girl, by the way.”

Dan Calabrese wrote last week at Cain TV thatwhen I get ready to consume my lunch, the thing I want to be thinking about is dude-on-dude action.”

“… I don't remember the last time adulterers, murderers or drunk drivers convinced a burger chain to name a product after them, and publicly declared their pride in what they do,” he added. “You're the ones who are making it an issue, not me.”

Flaming broiled.

Sigh. I can tell you for sure that when I get ready to consume my lunch, the thing I want to be thinking about is dude-on-dude action.

Hold the pickles

Hold the lettuce

Lunch and gay sex can't upset us!

 

I actually prefer the Whopper to its counterparts at McDonald's and Wendy's, and the ice cream shakes are really good when the machine doesn't break (which is sadly not that often).

Problem, though:

You tell me not to judge you for what you do that is in blatant rebellion against the Word of God. OK. You tell me not to be a hater and not to obsess over certain sins when others are just as troubling to God. Fair enough.

But I don't remember the last time adulterers, murderers or drunk drivers convinced a burger chain to name a product after them, and publicly declared their pride in what they do. You're the ones who are making it an issue, not me. I'm just telling you what God's Word says. If you don't want to hear that, then don't insist on constantly making it a topic of public conversation. (Then again, the thieves have the Hamburglar, so there is that.)

So if Burger King wants let its affiliation be known in the culture war, again I say, fair enough. One more reason I'm glad I learned to cook in college. Not only do I not need Burger King, but it helped me to attract a super-hot wife who remains super-hot even after 17 years of marriage to me.

She's a girl, by the way.

The American Decency Association, meanwhile, is all but declaring a boycott of the chain, telling OneNewsNow, "When we hear of a corporation that is just making decisions such as this, this is clearly a time for people to use whatever means they can to express that concern at their local Burger King.”

Iowa-based talk show host Steve Deace, for his part, is suggesting that the “Proud Whopper” discriminates against Christians:

 

American Decency Association Says Children Seeking Adoption Are Better Off Without A Home Than With Gay Parents

The culture-war crusaders at the American Decency Association are now joining a slew of other anti-gay activists in arguing that conservatives have been too lenient towards the gay community and need to fight against LGBT equality even more fervently.

“[W]hile we’re wielding a knife in the gunfight, we’re leaving our gun in the holster,” the ADA’s Chris Johnson lamented in an blog post last week.

Johnson insisted that the Religious Right must maintain its opposition to gay adoption, arguing that a “needy child” seeking adoption will “be better off waiting to be adopted by a heterosexual family which can give them the benefit of both a mother and father.”

When the same-sex marriage proponent says "these two people love each other; why shouldn't they be allowed to stand in front of their friends and family and make it official?" our response is that marriage has always been defined as between as a man and a woman and the state's interest in marriage is to regulate the individual units of society in the way that's most productive to society.

When they say, "why can't this loving couple adopt a needy child who just wants a family?" we answer that, statistically speaking, the child will be better off waiting to be adopted by a heterosexual family which can give them the benefit of both a mother and father.

And these arguments are solid, but the problem is that if you tell two people who really do love each other, that making the state recognize their love will fray the fabric of society, you will always look like a spiteful villain.

That is not to say that we shouldn't make those arguments. If the only result was that we would be more resolute in our own support of God-defined marriage, that would be valuable enough to focus on those aspects - and that's beside the fact that some people's emotions may still be swayed by an intellectual argument.

The issue, in my opinion is that while we're wielding a knife in the gunfight, we're leaving our gun in the holster.

American Decency Association: Gay Rights Have Turned America Into North Korea

Anti-gay activists are incensed that the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal by a New Mexico photographer who violated the state’s anti-discrimination laws, and the American Decency Association is citing the case as proof that the United States has morphed into North Korea.

“Have we been transported to North Korea? Since when do we have to check our First Amendment freedoms at the door in order to live and work as a citizen of the United States?” the group asked, lamenting that the government is bent on “forcing Christians to closet their faith and bow before our nation’s golden idol giving glory, laud, and honor to all things homosexual.”

Each week it seems the courts and the culture delivers another blow in their attempt to take down biblical truth. Yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court announced their refusal to hear the appeal case of Elaine Huguenin, the New Mexico photographer who was found guilty and punished by the New Mexico Supreme Court for putting her faith into practice – politely declining a request to take pictures of a lesbian couple’s “commitment ceremony” due to her religious beliefs.



With the U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to hear this case and weigh in on the constitutional issue of religious rights vs. “gay rights” the justices have, in essence, spoken by their silence. And the verdict is that “gay rights” wins and the First Amendment loses.

The appalling New Mexico ruling will stand. A ruling where one justice actually stated that Christian business owners are “now compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives." The ruling by this court went on to state that such coercion is "the price of citizenship."

The “price of citizenship”?? Have we been transported to North Korea? Since when do we have to check our First Amendment freedoms at the door in order to live and work as a citizen of the United States? What happened to the land of the free where we have the free exercise of religion?



Yet that is exactly what the government is doing (with a complicit stamp of approval from the U.S. Supreme Court) – forcing Christians to closet their faith and bow before our nation’s golden idol giving glory, laud, and honor to all things homosexual.

Paranoia-Rama: Satan's Gay Graham Crackers, Obama's 'Illegal Alien Hordes' & 'The Communist States Of America'

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

Every time we think we are tired and bored from hearing the constant complaints from far-right pundits about how President Obama is a communist tyrant, they always seem to find new ways to entertain us. Maybe they will eventually move on to more pressing issues, like Satan’s use of graham crackers to advance homosexuality.

5. Satanic Graham Crackers

Joining other anti-gay activists calling for a boycott of Honey Maid graham crackers because of a TV ad featuring a gay couple, the American Decency Association said this week that the company’s “This Is Wholesome” ad is proof of Satanic deception: “Satan wants us to see sin as normal and not so bad…. Honey Maid and others are putting two moms in a same-sex relationship. They are making two dads to seem normal. Both are wrong; both are unwholesome; both run contrary to the Word of God.”

The group adds:

It’s not a matter of acceptance; it’s a matter of an evil agenda which is being pushed upon America and around the world. Satan continues to attack God’s design and skew it to his own workings. He continues to take words like “wholesome” and “family” and twist them for his own purposes. He takes a symbol of God’s promise (the rainbow) and hijacks it, twisting it to his own design. Satan calls it normal; God calls it sin. We live in a day when “evil” is called “good” and “good” is called “evil.” That which is meant to glorify God (family, the church, etc) is being taken and bent out of shape until it is hardly recognizable.

Honey Maid offered this moving response to their critics:

4. Revolt Against Obama’s ‘Communist States Of America’

Liberty Counsel attorney Matt Barber’s weekly columns are so consistently ridiculous (and unintentionally hilarious) that they seem to be written by a liberal trying to make conservatives look bad. Barber didn’t disappoint with his latest commentary accusing President Obama of bringing communism to America.

“[N]early every adult who, at any time, was in any position of influence over a young, soon-to-be-radicalized Barry Soetoro was an avowed communist,” Barber writes. “To all this I say, if the jackboot fits, wear it. If it quacks like a commie and goose-steps like a commie, then a commie it is.”

He concludes by calling for a revolt against Obama: “We are no longer the United States of America. We have become The Communist States of America. Which means, for those who love liberty, revolution is once again at hand.”

3. Tea Party Group Embraces ‘Sandy Hook Truthers’

The National Liberty Foundation, a Florida-based Tea Party group, is now pushing the latest “Sandy Hook truther” conspiracy that President Obama orchestrated the school shooting in order to justify a crackdown on gun rights: “This my dear friends was all staged… we didn’t believe it at the time, but this is how far your president went to get your guns…. Don’t let anything he does surprise you… He wants to be a dictator, he doesn’t want to get out of the White House and he loves spending your money… Hmmm, I wonder where their off to next?”

The group posted an image of a the razed Sandy Hook elementary, which was demolished after the town voted to tear down the school, to claim that the administration is “destroying the evidence.” The group also advanced the conspiracy theory that the same female actress was photographed at the Sandy Hook, Aurora and Boston Marathon bombing aftermaths.

Raw Story notes that the Tea Party group also “questioned whether Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 was hijacked and taken to a ‘secret U.S. military base on a remote island in the Indian Ocean.’”

2. Obama ‘Destabilizing’ America With ‘Hordes Of Dangerous Illegal Aliens’

Fox News has jumped on a misleading Center for Immigration Studies report that dishonestly accuses the Obama administration of releasing “68,000 convicted criminal aliens” last year.

Fox pundit Todd Starnes called the report “indisputable proof that the Obama Administration is destabilizing the nation by allowing hordes of dangerous illegal aliens to invade the country,” telling listeners of his radio bulletin to “be prepared to take whatever measures necessary to protect your family and your home.

This is not a time to be politically correct so here’s the cold hard reality - the United States is being invaded. And the Obama administration has been complicit in the invasion. Instead of repelling the invasion, the Obama administration is welcoming the invaders with open arms and providing them food stamps, driver’s licenses and health insurance.

Now we know how the Ukrainians feel.

It’s beyond frightening to imagine that our own government as unleashed this kind of evil on our streets. And heaven forbid, these illegals harm our wives and children. Should that happen, their blood is on the Obama Administration’s hands.

As Media Matters has documented, Starnes was not the only Fox commentator to use the report to promote anti-immigrant views.

However, Fox News Latino pointed out the serious flaws in the report, which unfortunately will go unnoticed by most Fox viewers.

1. Celebrating Health Insurance Enrollments Proves Obama’s A Dictator

Glenn Beck is so outraged that the “sociopath” President Obama organized a press conference to hail the millions of people who enrolled in health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act, that he insisted he is “not going to pay attention” to Obama anymore… but nonetheless went on an epic rant where he criticized the “rat bastards” in the media and attacked Obama as a “full-fledged dictator.”

American Decency Association: Satan Behind Graham Cracker Ad Featuring Gay Couple

The American Decency Association is joining the anti-gay boycott of Honey Maid graham crackers, led by the American Family Association subsidiary One Million Moms. The groups are upset that the cracker company’s “This Is Wholesome” ad features a same-sex couple with their children, which the ADA’s Steve Huston claims is Satan’s doing.

“With Nabisco, Coca-cola, Chevrolet and the plethora of advertisers out there trying to make homosexuality look normal and wholesome, you’d think that this issue has become a cultural wave that has taken in a very large percentage of the population,” Huston writes.

“It’s not a matter of acceptance; it’s a matter of an evil agenda which is being pushed upon America and around the world. Satan continues to attack God’s design and skew it to his own workings. He continues to take words like ‘wholesome’ and ‘family’ and twist them for his own purposes.”

When I think of graham crackers I think of the camping I may do this summer and the smores I might eat around a campfire. I fondly remember eating a bowl full of soggy graham crackers for breakfast and talking with my mom. They were an easy snack to give my children with a little frosting on them. Yes, I have some wholesome memories of graham crackers, Nabisco graham crackers.

Apparently Nabisco and I have a fondness for different things now. Of course they wanted to sell crackers and I was really just interested in eating them; but now Nabisco wants to change definitions like family and wholesome. Now I am older and more interested in protecting definitions like family and wholesome; I’m interested in being a conscientious consumer, watching where I spend my dollar.



Satan wants us to see sin as normal and not so bad. He delights in taking what God has made “good” and was meant to glorify God and change it, counterfeit it, making it to please Satan himself instead of the Creator God. The fallen one desires men to see themselves as gods, having to answer to no one but themselves.

As Honey Maid explains on their Youtube page,

“Today we celebrate all families. From working moms to two moms;” I can’t help but think how far we have come. Do you realize we’ve been accepting two moms for a long time? Granted, we’ve been accepting two moms in different homes because of divorce; but now Honey Maid and others are putting two moms in a same-sex relationship. They are making two dads to seem normal. Both are wrong; both are unwholesome; both run contrary to the Word of God. Satan whispers, “Did God really say…?” “YES, HE DID!” should be our quick and relentless cry.

With Nabisco, Coca-cola, Chevrolet and the plethora of advertisers out there trying to make homosexuality look normal and wholesome, you’d think that this issue has become a cultural wave that has taken in a very large percentage of the population. THIS IS NOT THE CASE! The fact is that homosexuals account for less than 2% of the population of the United States of America. You can see the numbers of this 2011 study for yourself here.

It’s not a matter of acceptance; it’s a matter of an evil agenda which is being pushed upon America and around the world. Satan continues to attack God’s design and skew it to his own workings. He continues to take words like “wholesome” and “family” and twist them for his own purposes. He takes a symbol of God’s promise (the rainbow) and hijacks it, twisting it to his own design. Satan calls it normal; God calls it sin. We live in a day when “evil” is called “good” and “good” is called “evil.” That which is meant to glorify God (family, the church, etc) is being taken and bent out of shape until it is hardly recognizable.

American Decency Association: Marriage Equality Will Put Society 'On The Edge Of Destruction'

The right-wing American Decency Association is out with a new warning that marriage equality will pave the way for the legalization of “polygamy, pedophilia and bestiality” and contributes to a “societal erosion” that will result in an increase in gang membership and beliefs in “the lie of evolution.”

“As a nation we have grown in arrogance and pride, leaving God’s pattern for society – not just marriage – and substituting our own evil design for it. Do we think we can poke our finger in God’s eye without any repercussion?” the group asks. “Our nation, our society is on the edge of destruction; the walls are crumbling as those who see the danger shout out warnings.”

Remember when, as a kid, you’d build a wall with building blocks and then you or someone else would come along and knock it down? The one who knocked it down was usually laughing while the one who built it wasn’t very happy at all. Ah, those were the days.

God has built such a wall. Man has been tearing at this wall and laughing all the while; however, God is not amused. While people want to point fingers of blame in every direction we should stop long enough to recognize that perhaps the finger should really be pointing at us.

Society is made up of building blocks, the most basic of which is the family. God designed what that block should look like, one man and one woman in a covenantal relationship with Himself until death do they part. This is the fundamental building block of society and our nation. As we move away from God’s boundaries for marriage we are knocking down the wall of protection for society and are watching its demise.

Can I tell you that societal erosion started long before this homosexual movement? It started when we allowed “little” changes to the definition of marriage decades ago. When we refuse to honor all parts of God’s definition, why should any part be held as sacred? Remember God’s definition of marriage is this: one man and one woman in a covenantal relationship with God until death do they part. Society and the church started mutilating the definition of marriage by attacking its end, then disposed of the middle part as if irrelevant; so today we see the attack on marriage at its basic blocks, the beginning of God’s definition -- the man and the woman.



God is pushed further out of marriage and society. Schools and gangs became the most stable influences in many a young person’s life. The school indoctrinates on sexuality, false religions and societal norms. Television and its unbiblical influences mold minds of young and old alike until they come to the conclusion that there are no absolute truths - other than the lie of evolution which is taught as truth, and the definition of marriage (and many other words) doesn’t matter. As children watch adults move from one sexual relationship to another they themselves mimick [sic] parents and television believing that sex is free and for everyone with no negative consequence.

One man and one woman: This brings us to the beginning of God’s definition of marriage. Society and church has already removed God completely from the definition; so why should it matter? It matters because to add wrong upon wrong isn’t right. It matters because it’s unnatural and where will all the unnaturalness end? We’ve already seen people make stands for polygamy, pedophilia and bestiality. It’s wrong because we have current laws which are in accordance with the word of God and such laws need to be enforced. It’s wrong because the very fiber of our society is already being torn to shreds and it needs to be mended, not mutilated more.

It’s been wrong since the beginning of time and even from the beginning of this nation. Homosexuality (sodomy) was viewed by George Washington with “abhorrence and detestation.” Noah Webster defined “sodomy” as “a crime against nature.” (To see where other founding fathers stood on the issue click here.) As a nation we have grown in arrogance and pride, leaving God’s pattern for society –not just marriage- and substituting our own evil design for it. Do we think we can poke our finger in God’s eye without any repercussion? Our nation, our society is on the edge of destruction; the walls are crumbling as those who see the danger shout out warnings. These watchmen on the walls are called haters, judgmental, and labeled as “…phobes,” depending on which issue they take a stand for.

Bill Johnson: Marriage Equality Leads To 'Chaos And Dysfunction'

Reacting to the legal challenge of Michigan's marriage equality ban, American Decency Association head Bill Johnson last week told the ABC affiliate WZZM that there will be divine repercussions for legalizing same-sex marriage and blamed the "mainstream media" for its "relentless" promotion of "this alternative lifestyle."

He added: "I believe that as we turn our back upon God and upon his standard, it opens this culture, it opens our families, it opens each of us as individuals to increasing lawlessness, chaos and dysfunction."

The ADA also said that gay "special rights" will lead to "despotism" and the end of freedom:

How things have changed since President Reagan so eloquently spoke of that first constitutionally guaranteed right – our religious liberty. What do we now see from our current president, his administration, and imperious judges? A commanded worship at the altar of political correctness. A mandated belief in special “rights” for homosexuals that supersedes religious liberty. A stripping away of freedom “to speak and act” on our beliefs and “apply moral teaching to public questions.”

...

Like dominoes falling, each day we see another example of lawlessness and despotism kicking at the legs of liberty.

American Decency Association: Marriage Equality Gains Mean 'We Could Be Watching The Fall Of A Nation'

The American Decency Association is adding its voice to the chorus of anti-gay activists angered by a federal judge’s ruling against Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage.

In a statement yesterday, the group said that the gay rights supporters are removing God’s blessing from America and bringing down the country through “lawlessness, which defies both republic [sic] and democratic rule.”

“As the delicate balance of powers tilt we could be watching the fall of a nation,” the group warns. “Lawlessness of the heart is what has led to lawlessness in the land.”

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." The pledge has been recited countless times; yet, how many even know what a Republic is? Benjamin Franklin, upon being asked what kind of government we had after signing the Constitution replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”



Perhaps a simplistic definition of “Republic” and “Democracy” would be as follows: A Republic is representative government ruled by law (the Constitution). A democracy is direct government ruled by the majority (mob rule). A Republic recognizes the inalienable rights of individuals while democracies are only concerned with group wants or needs (the public good).

We’ve seen such lawlessness, which defies both republic [sic] and democratic rule rear its ugly head most recently in the marriage issue. When the Federal Attorney General strips away State sovereignty and the State Attorney General strips away the rights of the people with no repercussion, you are left with lawlessness. Judges are to rule BY the law, not throw off their black robes, and impose their own philosophies, personal preferences, cultural ties, or political agendas. When these things happen, you have lawlessness.

Recently in Virginia an Attorney General and an activist judge, appointed by President Obama, put their personal feelings and opinions above the marriage laws of Virginia that affirm marriage as the union of one man and one woman. In 2006 the people of Virginia, with a 57% vote, amended their constitution upholding natural marriage.



No matter which side you take, on any controversial issue, the lawlessness of our system should greatly bother you. It should raise your ire that our balanced powers are unbalanced and that the separation of the powers are not so separated. As the delicate balance of powers tilt we could be watching the fall of a nation.

Lawlessness of the heart is what has led to lawlessness in the land. It’s only God who can replace the lawless stony heart with a heart of flesh that loves Him and desires to do His will. It’s the grace filled heart that truly desires the best for every man, woman, and child. Instead of giving way to personal preference, we must once more give way to Biblical preference. If we desire to see our nation’s powers separated and balanced once more it must return to the foundation it has forsaken and the God whom it has ignored. Let us pray for God’s grace to transform the lawless heart into a grace-filled loving heart. Then as America blesses God, may God bless America again.

American Decency Association: Gays Are 'Disgusting'

After claiming that the Supreme Court’s ruling on DOMA was comparable to the attack on Pearl Harbor, the American Decency Association put out a statement today from president Bill Johnson calling gays and lesbians “disgusting.”

“How many men would stoop to having intimacy with another man?” Johnson asks. “How disgusting. How unnatural.”

Johnson adds that homosexuality “defies natural law” and criticizes TV networks for “shoving their pro-homosexual programming down our throats.”

It is unbelievable to me to see how those who lead us lack righteous indignation. They lack righteous indignation. How can this be?

Years ago when network television began shoving their pro-homosexual programming down our throats, some ministries began early to oppose the pro-homosexual movement.

I thought seriously? What’s to worry about? How many men would stoop to having intimacy with another man? How disgusting. How unnatural.

Having sex with someone with the same anatomy as their partner defies natural law. Natural law - God’s law.

Substituting the truth for a lie. Decisions of huge magnitude guided by a lie, by irrationality, foolishness. We are now led by multitudes of so-called leaders who have exchanged the truth for a LIE.

American Decency Association: DOMA Decision Just Like Pearl Harbor

The American Decency Association’s Lisa Van Houten is warning that the Supreme Court’s DOMA decision “will live in infamy” just like Pearl Harbor. Van Houten claims that pastors will “be prosecuted for preaching” against homosexuality and refusing to perform same-sex weddings, people will be “charged with discrimination” if they don’t “embrace homosexuality,” anti-gay groups will lose their non-profit status, and, worst of all, America will face divine punishment.

As we look back on history there are dates which we now see were crossroads, turning points for nations and cultures. July 4, 1776; June 6, 1944. December 7, 1941; January 22, 1973. Battles fought, decisions made – some establishing goodness and justice, others are dates that “will live in infamy.”

I believe today, June 26, 2013, is the latter. A date when the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of same sex marriage, and undermined true marriage – one man and one woman – which was instituted, not by any government, but by God.



The homosexual agenda cannot and will not abide peaceably alongside the true, biblical institutions of marriage and family as ordained by God. As the homosexual agenda is legitimized – even by the United States Supreme Court - marriage, family, and our religious liberty will be undermined.

Consider the following short list of what may be in our future :

1. Hate crime laws will be increasingly instituted and enforced. Will pastors be prosecuted for preaching what God’s Word says regarding homosexuality and refusing to perform same sex “marriage” ceremonies?

2. Homosexuality will be a protected class by the government. Christian school teachers and administrators, pastors, business owners, etc. could be charged with discrimination if they speak out against or refuse to embrace homosexuality.

3. Organizations such as our own American Decency could easily lose their (c)3 tax-exempt, non-profit status as we continue to call homosexuality what it is - SIN.

4. God will not bless a nation that puts a stamp of approval upon that which he calls an abomination. The evidences of God’s displeasure are evident and becoming more so with each passing day.

We are rapidly coming upon a time when a handful of unelected, increasingly politicized appointees are demonstrating that their allegiance to the U.S. Constitution and to natural law is under question.

However, God’s law supercedes [sic] man’s. As Christians, we must defy man’s law if it requires us to break the law of God.

American Decency Association: 'God's Wrath' Coming to America Because TV Shows 'Shove Homosexuality Down Our Throats'

Bill Johnson of the American Decency Association apparently was surprised by the pushback his group received after the ADA attacked Magic Johnson for showing support for his openly gay son, and the watchdog group is, naturally, blaming the media.

“We once were a people largely united under what was right and what was wrong,” but then, Johnson claims, “Network television began to shove homosexuality down our throats.”

Johnson concludes that “America is deserving of God’s wrath” as a result of the media’s alleged promotion of gay people’s “destructive lifestyle.”

God blesses a nation whose God is the Lord. As we Americans turn our back upon the Lord, deny and mock His Word, and blaspheme His Holy Name, we set ourselves up for judgment.

Many astute believers state that America is already experiencing the judgment of God; that God has removed His hand of protection from America.

It is difficult to ignore this as a reality. America is deserving of God’s wrath.



We once were a people largely united under what was right and what was wrong. It was a nation under God.

However, there has been a RELENTLESS attack upon God and upon godliness. The evidences of the spiritual/moral slide has been lengthy and increasingly the “chickens have come home to roost.”

Americans love their televisions, stories and sitcoms and with the passing years knowing the difference between right and wrong has eroded through the concerted campaign of Hollywood.

Network television began to shove homosexuality down our throats years ago: America’s most powerful influence makers have intensified their public relations blitz aimed at convincing Americans that homosexual behavior is normal and more specifically, that homosexual “marriage” should be legalized.



In the book of Judges, Israel turned their backs upon God. Every man did what was right in his own eyes. To get man’s attention, God allowed the natural consequences of godlessness to have its way. Godlessness includes homosexuality, same-sex marriage, abortion, adultery, premarital sex, polygamy, pedophilia, … the list goes on and on.



Yet Magic Johnson, whose illicit sexual lifestyle resulted in his HIV status, is “proud” of his son for choosing an equally destructive lifestyle. Sin degrades, addicts, devastates, divides, destroys and is judged and will be ultimately be judged by a Holy God when we go before him when our life here comes to an end.



Network television and cable TV will trumpet, promote, propagandize and bully their way by continuing to spend billions of dollars to fool a godless generation. Untold numbers will be duped and will follow darkness rather than follow the light.

American Decency Association: Magic Johnson Should Be Ashamed of His Gay Son

Bill Johnson of the anti-gay American Decency Association is angry that Magic Johnson has shown his openly gay son love and support rather than condemnation.

“Would you be proud to hear that your loved one had chosen a life that God calls an abomination?,” Johnson writes, “Maybe if you yourself had lived a life of reprobation – and yourself had lost the ability to think and act morally any longer.”

Johnson goes on to say that gay rights will lead to the acceptance of “pedophilia” and “beastiality [sic]” and called homosexuality a “sin which degrades, addicts, destroys.”

Would you be proud to hear that your loved one had chosen a life that God calls an abomination? Maybe if you yourself had lived a life of reprobation – and yourself had lost the ability to think and act morally any longer.

If Magic Johnson says he’s proud of his son for being a homosexual does his statement make it right in your heart and mind?



For those who say there is no God, it’s fine to screw around, play around, commit adultery, engage in homosexuality. There is no right or wrong so do what’s right in your own eyes; do what comes “naturally.” And if what you want to do isn’t considered politically correct today, just wait awhile then it will be okay in the near future. Polygamy? Pedophilia? Same-sex marriage? Beastiality [sic]?

For those who say there is a God, they believe there is a God in Heaven who created man and woman and who created all things. They also believe there is TRUTH - that there is such a thing as right and wrong; that life is precious; that the chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.

Therefore, God’s warnings in His word are reasonable and wise. God made us and He knows what’s best. He gives strong warnings regarding illicit sex: pre-marital sex, promiscuity, adultery, homosexuality, polygamy.

Why? Because He loves His people and doesn’t want His people to be damaged and to damage other people through that sin which degrades, addicts, destroys.

And the sin of homosexuality DOES damage! You could provide your accounts as well – multiple , multiple accounts but somehow we seldom to never hear these accounts. Do you? We just see Magic Johnson types with their “warm smiles” saying all is well and I’m proud. GAY PRIDE.

...

Other societies have turned their backs upon God. That’s what America is doing - substituting the truth for a lie.

In closing, I live in the real world. I have had loved ones break my heart. I have deeply disappointed my own parents – nearly broken their hearts.

I have been loved, even when I have done wrong. I have and I will do the same. But I will never say that I am proud of an act or a behavior that dishonors God and degrades His people.

American Decency Association: 'Glee Is Poisoning Our Youth'

The American Decency Association is once again calling on advertisers to pull their support from Glee, warning that the show is “poisoning our youth” with its “destructive messages.”

In a radio alert, ADA founder Bill Johnson alleged that Glee is “a gruel of illicit sexuality, secular humanist ideology, and the promotion of homosexuality and deviant behavior.”

Whose values will your children and grandchildren catch? If they’re watching “Glee,” there’s a good chance that they’re reeling in values antithetical to yours.

Each week “Glee” producer Ryan Murphy stirs together a gruel of illicit sexuality, secular humanist ideology, and the promotion of homosexuality and deviant behavior - and then spoon feeds it to millions of youth across the nation.

And, sadly, many parents are just sitting back in their La-Z-boys while this proverbial poison is swallowed by their children.

Even the liberal MSN recently referred to Glee as “overtly politically correct and borderline preachy…the series has turned itself into one giant public service announcement” for sexual promiscuity and deviancy.

Will Calvin College Play Host to Fake Ex-Terrorist Kamal Saleem…Again?

UPDATE: It appears that Calvin College will no longer be hosting the event.

The American Decency Association plans to host Kamal Saleem, who claims to be a former terrorist, at Calvin College as part of a tour of Michigan. Saleem’s story of working as a terrorist all over the globe has been thoroughly debunked, but he continues to be an idol of Religious Right groups. He even spoke at last year’s Values Voter Summit following Paul Ryan where he warned that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton plans to “shut down” churches and synagogues.

Saleem has argued that President Obama is a Muslim who is using Roe v. Wade “to bring Sharia law” to the U.S. He maintains that Obama wants to make sure that “Sharia law will be supreme in America” by working with “Hamas to import Muslim people to the United States” and “legalizing terrorism.” Saleem even claims that “there are many generals who swore to destroy the United States of America are generals in the United States [military]” and that an Islamic shadow government is secretly running the U.S. through the Obama family babysitter.

He spoke at Calvin College in 2007, where he met Professor Doug Howard, who went on to write an article for Christianity Today on the “bizarre” and fantastical claims that Saleem makes in his book, The Blood of Lambs.

Because Howard, like others, raised serious doubts about Saleem’s story, Saleem has accused him of working for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Michelle Goldberg of The Daily Beast reports that “Saleem told me that Howard is an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood” and in an interview with Tim Murphy of Mother Jones, Saleem asserted that Howard supports radical Islam:

But Saleem didn't flinch. "He's related to a special group called the Muslim Brotherhood, and he works with them, he went to DC, he was with CAIR," he said.

I mentioned that Howard is a Christian, which makes him an odd fit for the Brotherhood.

"So? He's a professor of history. Islamic history professor, and he's writing on what? On Islamic history glory. So the group he's with, there are different groups. He rallied with them in DC, and he invited an Iranian radical to Calvin University. They spoke right there." That Iranian radical, it turns out, was Reza Aslan, who in addition to being an American citizen raised in the Bay Area, is famous mostly for suggesting that democracy is a useful weapon against terrorism.

("I don't know what to say! Maybe I should add that to my faculty web page," joked Howard in an email, adding that as part of his semester in DC, he took students to meet with the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, AIPAC, the Mennonites Central Committee, and, yes, one trip to a mosque.)

But now, Saleem is once again set to speak at a college which he believes is employing a Muslim Brotherhood agent who is part of an alliance between professors and terrorists.

American Decency Association takes on Ryan Murphy's 'Glee' and 'New Normal'

The American Decency Association is going after Ryan Murphy and his two shows, Glee and The New Normal, for its stances on gay rights and supposed anti-Christian themes. The anti-gay ADA slammed Glee over its “sexualized themes and secular humanist propaganda indoctrinating viewers” and inclusion of “two openly homosexual teen boys whose lifestyle has been positively featured over the years.” The group warned that watching Glee is a violation of the Bible since the show “legitimize[s] perversity” and is “plied with such indoctrination leading young people to accept and approve of immoral lifestyles.”

The cultural waters our youth are swimming in are more than murky - a more apt description would be raw sewage. It’s hard to think of even one network television show that offers positive examples to viewers.

There is one wildly popular show watched by millions of teens, preteens, and adults which, on the surface, would seem fairly innocuous. The program is “Glee” on the Fox Network. Glee garners millions of viewers each week who tune in to watch this show about a mixed group of high-schoolers who are part of a modern-day glee club. Included with typical high school drama are entertaining song-and-dance numbers.

It sounds rather harmless, right? Think again. Glee is about as far from a “Sound of Music” production as you can get. Glee is often edgy, erotic, and extremely popular with youth – both teens and preteens. And that is why the show is especially concerning. For mixed with the catchy vocal production numbers are sexualized themes and secular humanist propaganda indoctrinating viewers.

The fourth season of Glee premiered this past Thursday evening, introducing a new male student to the cast of characters which includes two openly homosexual teen boys whose lifestyle has been positively featured over the years. This new student just happens to be a cross-dressing, makeup-wearing transsexual. But of course that barely raised an eyebrow among the show’s characters because, as one student stated, they’re “all about diversity and acceptance.”

Each week millions of teens and preteens tune in for Glee and are subtly plied with such indoctrination leading young people to accept and approve of immoral lifestyles all in the name of “diversity and tolerance.” How many Christian young people – and adults – are entertained by a show that gives approval of what God calls “debased” in Romans 1?

Romans 1:32 states: “Though they know God's righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.” This verse seems to speak not only to those who “practice” such immorality (such as the openly gay Ryan Murphy), but also to those who “approve” of it. Doesn’t it seem that being entertained by shows that legitimize perversity falls into the category of “giving approval” of it?

The ADA also criticized Murphy’s new comedy, The New Normal, and asked members to contact advertisers to withdraw from the show since it “pushes the gay agenda” and “offensively labels those who hold traditional values as bigoted homophobes.”

As a corporation that has chosen to sponsor the NBC television show “The New Normal,” I’m outraged by your support of a show that not only crosses the line with offensive, lewd verbiage and sexual imagery, but also pushes the gay agenda, while it offensively labels those who hold traditional values as bigoted homophobes.

Millions of Americans hold views regarding the gay agenda and same sex marriage that differ from the opinions pushed by Hollywood elites. This is made clearly obvious by the voters in dozens of states from the east coast to the west who have overwhelmingly upheld traditional marriage.

“The New Normal” blatantly mocks me and those millions of Americans by labeling us as “intolerant haters” when in fact the message you sponsor through this show is one of hate and intolerance toward those of us who hold a different viewpoint regarding the gay agenda.

Do you really want your company name associated with a show that mocks and offends millions of potential customers? If you continue to sponsor “The New Normal” I will do my best to tell my family and friends to include you on their “no shop” list.

I look forward to your response.
