AFA Official Agrees With Caller Who Wants Red States To Secede From America

American Family Association news director Fred Jackson served as the guest host for “Sandy Rios in the Morning” this week, and used the opportunity to agree with a caller who said that “red states” should leave the United States.

The caller, who identified himself as a member of the radical group Oath Keepers, said secession is “the only solution that we have because voting doesn’t work,” calling for red states specifically to separate from the union. He also didn’t miss a chance to call Obama a Muslim: “And I would make a comment about the ISIS spokesman who said that they wanted to raise the flag of Allah over the White House, my personal opinion: it was raised six years ago.”

Jackson said the caller actually had a good idea, only regretting that not enough Americans have the drive to secede.

“James, your suggestion is a good one and I’m hearing what you’re saying. But I’m wondering if there is enough gumption to do that given the fact that this country re-elected President Barack Obama in 2012,” Jackson responded. “So if you can’t get people to go out and vote for someone who is opposed to the policies of the existing politician in power, do you think there’s really a chance that they are actually going to say, ‘well I won’t take the time to go out and vote but yeah let’s go ahead and secede from the nation’?”

“I’m not trying to be critical of your suggestion, I am just wondering if there is the heart of the American people yet, and I say yet because I don’t think that we should ever give up. I think sometimes a country has to hit a wall before they realize that there is something that we must do. I’m not sure enough Americans have realized that we are about to hit that wall.”

AFA: Archie Is Destroying America's Youth

Tim Wildmon and Ed Vitagliano of the American Family Association are upset about the direction of Archie Comics, and spoke with Religious Right pundit Larry Tomczak on today’s edition of “Today’s Issues” about how Archie is corrupting young people with messages promoting “the occult and homosexuality.”

Tomczak described how in a recent issue Archie dies while taking a bullet for his gay friend, something Wildmon apparently found hilarious as he cracked up while Tomczek detailed the plot.

“I know I sound like an old crank but when kids grow up being fed lies, why should we surprised if they believe lies? Why should we be surprised if they say there is nothing wrong with same-sex marriage?” Vitagliano said. “These kids grew up watching their parents laugh at Will & Grace, which changed people’s opinions, and now the kids don’t have a problem with it.”

Bryan Fischer Agrees With ISIS That Yazidis Are Devil Worshipers And That's Why Obama Defends Them

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer is outraged that the U.S. is intervening in Iraq to stop ISIS, who has been attacking Christians and other Muslims throughout the country.

Fischer believes that President Obama only intervened to stop the extermination of the Yazidis, who practice an ancient religion yet are considered by ISIS fighters and others to be “devil worshipers.” He began today’s edition of “Focal Point” by railing against Obama, saying the president only decided to launch airstrikes in Iraq in order to defend “devil worshipers.”

“They go after devil worshipers and all of the sudden the entire weight of the United States government is sent in there to relieve them and to avenge them,” he said. “Those are the Yazidis.”

Fischer added: “President Obama will fight for Satan worshipers but he will not fight for Christians.”

“In a rare point of theological accord, both Muslims and Christians agree that the archangel revered by the Yazidis is in fact the Prince of Darkness,” he writes in his column today. “The New Testament describes him this way, “Satan (who) disguises himself as an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14), eager to deceive the gullible into believing that he is good rather than evil. The Yazidis have fallen for his lies.”

The persecution of Christians and other minorities in Iraq began long before Obama took office, and Fischer relayed other right-wing myths about the Obama administration supposedly refusing to help people like pastor Saeed Abedini and Meriam Ibrahim.

The Christian Science Monitor explains:

Ethnically Kurds, the Yazidis' faith combines elements of Zoroastrianismfrom ancient Persia, Sufi Islam, Judaism and Christianity along with beliefs from ancient Mesopotamia. It’s a closed and still secretive religion – members have to be born into the faith and cannot marry outside of it.

Yazidis believe that God entrusted the world to seven angels – the chief angel known in earthly form as the peacock angel who refused to bow down before Adam. While Yazidis see it as proof of his devotion to God, the narrative’s parallels with the fallen angel have led some Muslims to accuse them of devil worship.

Bryan Fischer: Obama And Holder Are Racists, And Anyone Who Calls Someone A Racist Is A Liar

Within one minute today, American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer slammed President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder as “racists” … and then said that anyone who uses terms like “racist” in politics are desperately “calling people names,” engaging in “gutter” politics and “don’t have an argument.”

Speaking on his “Focal Point” radio program today, Fischer said Obama has become an unfettered tyrant who, along with Holder, has created a racist Justice Department:

He’s got an activist attorney general, Eric Holder, who said, ‘Look, I’m an activist attorney general. I make no bones about that; I am proud to be identified as an activist attorney general. I am not going to prosecute a single case where a white person is the victim. If a white person is the victim I don’t care if they get justice, that’s no concern of mine. The only cases I am going to prosecute are where blacks are the victims. That makes him a racist…. Martin Luther King lost his life campaigning against that racist attitude.

He then shifted gears to attack Juan Williams for his recent remarks that the people advocating for Obama’s impeachment are “a white, older group of people” and minorities “see it as an attack on the first black president.”

Fischer, a supporter of impeachment, was disgusted that Williams would dare to mention race:

I thought Juan Williams was better than this. It is just disappointing to me to see him slide into the gutter of playing the race card because that is the card you play when you are out of ammunition, when you don’t have an argument, when the truth is not on your side, when the facts are not on your side, when logic is not on your side, when the Constitution is not on your side, when the law is not on your side, that is when you start accusing people and calling people names. It is very disappointing to me to see Juan Williams stoop to this level.

Anti-Gay Activist Gary Glenn Wins GOP Primary In Michigan

American Family Association of Michigan president Gary Glenn won a Republican primary for a seat in the Michigan state House yesterday, making him potentially the second most virulently anti-gay GOP candidate in the country, behind Colorado demon-hunter Gordon Klingenschmitt.

Glenn was a prominent supporter of Michigan’s 2004 constitutional amendment banning marriage equality and was a big backer of his “very special friend” Mike Huckabee’s 2008 presidential bid. As the head of the American Family Association’s Michigan affiliate, Glenn has pushed any number of extreme anti-gay positions:

This, of course, is all run of the mill for someone associated with the American Family Association.

Bryan Fischer Suggests Treating Muslims Like KKK Members

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer said yesterday that he wants to reach out to liberals and find common ground with them, and came up with a plan to treat Muslims like members of the Ku Klux Klan. He lamented that Muslims have a “zone of protection similar to the zone of protection that homosexual activists have, you can’t criticize them or they will come after you hammer and tongs,” even though Islam is driven by a “dark religious impulse.”

“It’s a cancer, it’s a toxin and yet here it is infiltrating our culture and you can’t criticize it,” Fischer said of Islam.

Then, Fischer made an appeal to liberals: “I would say to my friends on the left, whatever you think we ought to do to the KKK, that’s what we ought to do to Islam.... If you think we shouldn’t give building permits to the KKK to build some kind of convention center where they can have their conferences and their rallies, then fine, let’s not issue building permits for mosques for exactly the same reason.”

Bryan Fischer: Creationism Is The Truth As Plurality Of Americans Believe In It

On his radio program yesterday, the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer cited a recent poll finding support in the U.S. for Israeli military action in Gaza, despite what Fischer claims is rampant anti-Israel “propaganda” in the media, to make a point about steady support for Creationism among the American public.

“The American public has been propagandized for over one hundred years with evolution and still forty percent of the American people believe that man was created substantially as he is today by God about 6,000 years ago,” Fischer said. “You just cannot kill the truth, there is no roundup that you can take to the truth that will kill it, it is relentless, it is going to keep breaking the surface.”

AFA: America Must Push Gays 'Back Into The Closet' Or Risk Total Destruction

The American Family Association today is promoting a 2013 article by research director Ed Vitagliano, who warns that the rise of gay rights in the U.S. “is a sign of a deep spiritual sickness” and “a downward death spiral” that will incite divine wrath.

“[H]omosexuality often becomes the barometer of a culture rotting out from the inside,” Vitagliano writes, lamenting that “[s]traight America has embraced homosexuality because straight Americans first embraced the sexual revolution for the satisfaction of their own perverse sexual appetites.”

He concludes that pushing gays “back into the closet (if that were possible)” is not “enough to forestall judgment,” but that conservatives must go even further in driving out the “underlying wickedness that permeated the entire culture.”

It is sometimes difficult for Christians to comprehend the breathtaking speed with which the gay movement has succeeded in America. While the political movement itself began in 1969, it has only been over the last decade that homosexual activists have seen virtually every one of their dreams come true.



Yet Scripture is clear that embracing homosexuality is a sign of a deep spiritual sickness. In particular, three important passages warn cultures about taking this step.



How can a reasonable person do this? How can a society clearly see that humanity is divided into male and female genders, with corresponding, rather than identical, genitalia, and shrug its collective shoulders?

Romans 1:18 states that this is done because they “suppress the truth in unrighteousness.” The Greeks did this. America is on the verge of doing so.

A downward death spiral results from such suppression. These individuals (and, we must assume, the cultures such individuals create) sink into further darkness and eventually (unless God intervenes) become hardened and blinded to the truth.



In Jude 7 the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah is made even more explicit: The inhabitants “indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh,” and what could be stranger than men fornicating with other men?

But the Genesis account takes note of the utter depravity of these particular homosexual men, for it was the violence of their predatory behavior that seems most abhorrent in the passage. They literally threatened to have forcible homosexual intercourse with Lot’s visitors – i.e., to rape his guests.



Straight America has embraced homosexuality because straight Americans first embraced the sexual revolution for the satisfaction of their own perverse sexual appetites. Judgment came to Sodom because violent homosexuality was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. As a prevalent sin, however, it was the manifestation of an underlying wickedness that permeated the entire culture – a wickedness that was not limited to the homosexual.

Thus homosexuality often becomes the barometer of a culture rotting out from the inside. If the problem were only homosexuality, then the simple act of pushing it back into the closet (if that were possible) would be enough to forestall judgment.

But what Ezekiel 16 teaches us is this: By the time a culture accepts idolatry, abortion and homosexuality, it is already ripe for the devastation wrought by God’s wrath.

Sandy Rios Explains How Undocumented Children Are Like Adulterers

On her radio program this morning, the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios compared undocumented children to married people who commit adultery.

“I have compassion and love, I know that many of them are desperate, some of them just want to better their lives,” she said.

“People make the argument that immigrant children go on to make such great citizens, and they do, and I’m all in favor of that when it’s legal,” she said. “But to kind of say it’s not so bad because they’re all very nice, and very nice people…is to kind of say, like when people commit adultery because another person is more compatible with them and they go on to have a happy marriage, it’s kind of like, it’s apples and oranges.”

Rick Santorum Presents Latest 'Religious Persecution' Movie

Two current Religious Right fixations — the “persecution” of American Christians and the need for conservatives to do more to influence the pop culture — have come together in movies like “Persecuted” and “We the People—Under Attack.” The latest entry, “One Generation Away: The Erosion of Religious Liberty,” was screened by Rick Santorum at the Heritage Foundation on Monday night.

Santorum said the movie will be released in September. His EchoLight Cinemas is trying to create an alternative to Hollywood distribution channels by building a network of thousands of tech-equipped churches who will sell tickets for "One Generation Away" and other movies. He says the long-term strategy is to bring more people into churches and put the church back at the center of the culture.

"One Generation Away" is described as a documentary, but it’s really a preaching-to-the-choir call to arms for conservative Christians and pastors to get more involved in culture war battles while they still have the freedom to do so. Among the film’s producers are Donald and Tim Wildmon from the American Family Association, which Santorum said is packaging a shorter version of the movie into more of an activist tool.

The title comes from Ronald Reagan – specifically from a speech to the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce in 1961, a time in which Reagan was working with conservatives to rally opposition to Medicare – “socialized medicine”:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

The thrust of "One Generation Away" is that religious freedom in the United States is disappearing fast, and if the church doesn’t fight for it now, it will soon be gone forever. Before running the film on Monday, Santorum quoted Cardinal Francis George, who said during the debate about insurance coverage of contraception, “I expect to die in my bed. I expect my successor to die in prison. I expect his successor to be a martyr.” That’s just the kind of hyperbolic “religious persecution” rhetoric we have come to expect from Religious Right leaders and their allies in the Catholic hierarchy.

At one point toward the end of the movie, it seems as if the filmmakers might be striking a more reasonable tone, with a couple of speakers saying that Christians should stand up for the rights of people of different faiths — even though the AFA’s chief spokesman opposes First Amendment protections for non-Christians— and others actually acknowledging that it is problematic for American Christians to be complaining of “religious persecution” over policy disputes when Christians and others are facing horrific, deadly persecution in many other parts of the world.

But that caution is quickly abandoned as the movie makes a direct comparison of the status of the Christian church in America with the church in Germany as the Nazis came to power. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a pastor who tried to mobilize German Christians to resist Nazi tyranny and was executed by the regime, is held up as the model that American Christians need to be willing to follow.

Eric Metaxas, a Bonhoeffer biographer who became a Religious Right folk hero when he questioned President Obama’s faith at a National Prayer Breakfast attended by the president, warned that if the church doesn’t link arms to fight, all will be lost. “The good news,” he said, “is that the American church is slightly more attuned to the rumbling heard in the distance than the German church was in the 30s. The bad news is, only slightly, right?”

The movie cuts to Mike Huckabee saying that Bonhoeffer could have saved his life if he had been willing to soften his faith, but that instead he resisted and rebuked the Nazi regime. And then we’re back to Metaxas to complete the Nazi analogy:

 “The parallel today is simply that. You have a government, a state, which is getting larger and larger and more and more powerful, and is beginning to push against the church. There’s a window of opportunity where we can fight. If we don’t wake up and fight before then, we won’t be able to fight. That’s just what happened in Germany. And that’s the urgency we have in America now. And people that’s incendiary, or I’m being hyperbolic. I’m sorry, I wish, I wish, I wish I were. I’m not.”

Filmmakers said at the screening that they had conducted 75 interviews for the movie, and it sure feels like it.  It includes names that will be well-known to RWW readers, like Mike Huckabee, Tony Perkins, Harry Jackson, Tim Wildmon, Alveda King, Robert George, Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention, Eric Teetsel of the Manhattan Declaration, and Ryan Anderson and Jennifer Marshall of the Heritage Foundation.

Also appearing are Rep. Doug Collins; Rick Perry backer Robert Jeffress; Matthew Franck of the Witherspoon Institute, which sponsored the infamous and discredited Regnerus “family structures” study; Stephen McDowell of the dominionist Providence Foundation; Gregory Thornbury of Kings College; lawyers from the Alliance Defense Fund, the Beckett Fund, the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund; and a number of pastors.

The film also includes interviews with some opponents of the Religious Right, including Barry Lynn of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, Princeton’s Peter Singer, and Dan Barker of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Santorum told the audience at Heritage that he wishes he had even more of his opponents included in the film because “they scare the hell out of me” and would help motivate the right-wing base.

In order to keep the movie from being one brutally long succession of talking heads, the filmmakers resort to a tactic of constantly shifting scenes, a couple of seconds at a time, in a way that feels like they got a volume discount on stock images of Americana: boats on the water, kids playing softball, families walking together. There are also odd random fillers, like close-ups of the pattern on a couch in the room in which a speaker is sitting. The endless, repetitive succession of images actually makes the film feel even longer than it actually is. (Zack Ford at ThinkProgress had a similar reaction to this technique.)

The meat of the film, or the “red meat,” mixes the personal stories of people being  victimized by intolerant secularists and/or gay activists with miniature David Bartonesque lectures on the Christian roots of America’s founding; the fact that the phrase “separation of church and state” never appears in the U.S. Constitution; the notion that the American government is trying to replace “freedom of religion” with “freedom of worship” and require any expression of faith to take place behind church walls; and the disgracefulness of making any analogies between the civil rights movement and the LGBT equality movement. The 1947 Supreme Court decision in which Jefferson’s “separation of church and state” phrase was invoked by the Court and “changed everything” is portrayed as nothing more than a reflection of Justice Hugo Black’s hatred of Catholics.

Featured “persecution” stories include:

  • a long advertisement for Hobby Lobby and its owners, the Green family, which recently won its legal battle against the contraception mandate;
  • a baker and florist who ran afoul of their state’s anti-discrimination laws when they refused to provide services for a same-sex couple getting married;
  • cheerleaders at a public high school in Texas who were challenged by the Freedom From Religion Foundation for creating football game banners featuring Christian scriptural quotes;  
  • Catholic Charities being “forced” to give up adoption services rather than place children with same-sex couples;
  • an ACLU challenge to a large cross at the Mt. Soledad war memorial; and
  • the supposed frontal attack on the religious freedom of military chaplains as a result of allowing LGBT members of the armed forces to serve openly. On this issue, Tony Perkins declares, “The military is being used as a vanguard of radical social policy. And in order for that policy to permeate and to take root, you’ve got to take out the religious opposition.”

In spite of the parade of horrors, the movie tries to end on an upbeat note, saying that the early Christian church expanded while it was being suppressed, and that it will only take “one spark of revival” to change the nation.  A familiar theme at Religious Right conferences is that blame for America’s decline rests with churches that don’t speak up and pastors who don’t preach or lead aggressively enough. One Generation Away ends on this point, telling Christian pastors it is their responsibility to wake up and challenge their congregants to live their faith “uncompromisingly.”

During the Q&A after the screening, Santorum said the fact that Hobby Lobby was a 5-4 decision demonstrated the importance of the 2016 election. “Part of me almost wishes we’d lost,” says Santorum, because that would have made the threat clearer to conservative activists. “We are one judge away,” he said, adding that “if we get a Democratic president, our five, or four-and-a-half, justices are not going to hold out forever.”

“I just worry,” he said to the young people in the audience, “that the longer we delay, and America sleeps, and your generation is indoctrinated the way it is, the harder it will be to come back.”

Dinesh D'Souza: Obama Should Be Grateful He Wasn't Born In A Hut In Kenya

In an interview with the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios this morning, Dinesh D’Souza accused President Obama of having an antipathy towards the United States when he could be living in a “hut” in Kenya.

“Here’s the strange thing, you know Obama’s born in America, he’s the walking embodiment of American exceptionalism. If Obama had been born in Kenya like his brother George, he probably would be living in the hut next door in the Huruma slum of Nairobi. And yet even though America has given our president all of this privilege, all of this opportunity, he’s always deriding American exceptionalism,” D’Souza said.

He went on to explain that his movie will expose how “the vast progressive movement that is powerful not just in politics but in education, in media, in Hollywood” has been imposing upon the country a “distorted story of America, a story of American shame that I challenge and refute in this film.”

Later in the interview, Rios said she was “amazed” and “mystified” by the “plotting and scheming” of liberals, something that conservatives would never, ever take part in because they are good, honest Christians: “Christians primarily don’t plot like that. We trust God, so we open every day in prayer, we plan our lives — I’m not saying we’re disorganized, but we don’t scheme, we don’t manipulate in the same way. And I find myself wondering if we can ever overcome that kind of skill. They think this life is all there is, so if they don’t control and scheme and manipulate, that is what they think they have to do in this life, in the now.”

“Well, we do have truth on our side,” D’Souza insisted. “I do think that we have to fight better, smarter.”

Bryan Fischer: 'It Will Be Impeachment Or The End Of America'

The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer is one conservative who doesn’t agree with John Boehner that impeaching president Obama would be a huge political mistake.

In a blog post today, Fischer writes that “dull of mind” Republicans who have rejected impeachment have “stupidly dropped the one weapon they could use to save America.”

“Now if the Republicans don’t want to save this country, they won’t attempt to impeach,” he writes. “If they do love this country, they will.”

“In the end, it will be impeachment or the ruin of America.”

America has a political problem: a renegade president, unbound by either Constitution or conscience.

America has a political problem. But it also has a political solution: impeachment.

In fact, it’s impeachment or nothing. In the end, Republicans will have absolutely no other alternative if they wish to keep this president from transforming this once great nation into a banana republic.

Lawsuits won’t work, because the president has already shown a cavalier disregard for the rule of law. Defunding won’t work, because the president has already shown a cavalier disregard for budgetary restraints of any kind.

In the end, it will be impeachment or the ruin of America.

Now if the Republicans don’t want to save this country, they won’t attempt to impeach. If they do love this country, they will. In the end, the equation will be as simple as that.

John Boehner, goaded by the Democrats, has unwisely taken impeachment off the table. The reality is that the Democrats are scared to death of impeachment - they know the public is growing increasingly disaffected with Obama - and thus tried to goad Republicans into prematurely surrendering its powers of action. The GOP has been outwitted again.

The outsmarted Republicans, too dull of mind to realize they have been gamed, have stupidly dropped the one weapon they could use to save America.

The Democrats are using guns in this fight, while convincing the Republicans to voluntarily disarm. America now lies defenseless before a marauder.

Sandy Rios Wants To Impeach Obama For Something That Bush Did

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association spent today criticizing the Obama administration for pushing the narrative that House Republicans may try to impeach President Obama, while at the same time insisting that Republicans should seriously consider impeaching the president.

Upset that Fox News host Andrea Tantaros came out against impeachment, Rios cited the release of a Guantanamo Bay detainee, Abu Sufian bin Qumu, who was later implicated in the 2012 Benghazi attack, as proof that Obama is guilty of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

Qumu, however was released in 2007, two years before Obama took office.

Bush released over 500 Guantanamo Bay detainees, with a thirty percent recidivism rate.

Rios lashed out at Republicans who want to dismiss the impeachment question, comparing it to the birther issue and arguing that they are treating impeachment advocates like they have cooties: “The so-called mainstream Republicans are bending over backwards to vilify conservatives, it’s almost like the birther incident, it’s like people who are now discussing impeachment and whether the president has committed those crimes, now they are going to have cooties, we will have to think of a word for people who say that, ‘impeachables,’ I’m not sure what you call people like me who actually think it should be seriously discussed.”

GOP's Base Clamors To Impeach Obama

Nearly two years into President Obama’s second term, a do-nothing Republican Congress is focusing on its next project: the 2014 midterm elections. But that effort might be complicated by increasing pressure from the party’s base to turn Congress’ energy to impeaching President Obama. The impeachment call, which has existed on the right-wing fringe since the start of Obama’s presidency, has picked up steam in recent weeks as it has been endorsed by right-wing media figures, activists and elected officials.

This has put Republican congressional leaders in a tricky spot as they attempt to placate their base without alienating moderate voters. When House Majority Whip Steve Scalise appeared on Fox News Sunday this week, he continually dodged the question. Ted Cruz similarly batted away a question about impeachment, calling it politically unfeasible. Right-wing leaders including Pat Buchanan and Tom DeLay have urged caution in the impeachment campaign, although DeLay said he would personally “love to impeach him.” Likewise, Karl Rove has warned that when it comes to impeachment, “the politics of it are all wrong.”

Even Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas, who last year distributed to every office on Capitol Hill a book on why the president should be impeached and removed from office and hired an attorney to look into impeachment, is now backtracking and warning that impeachment proceedings could benefit Democrats in the midterm elections.

Now, House Speaker John Boehner is claiming that talk of impeachment is a Democratic “scam” to win voters…an odd claim since it’s members of his own party who have been beating the drum about impeachment.

But it might be too late for Republicans to backtrack on a steady buildup of rhetoric questioning the president’s legitimacy, love of country, and authority to govern, which has led to increasing calls for impeachment from right-wing lawmakers, activists and media personalities... although nobody can quite agree on what the impeachment should be for.

  • In a radio interview last week, Rep. Michele Bachmann said that she believed the president has "committed impeachable offenses” but that first “the American people have to agree with and be behind and call for the president’s impeachment.”
  • This month, Rep. Lou Barletta of Pennsylvania said that there are “probably” the votes in the House to impeach the president for “absolutely ignoring the Constitution, and ignoring the laws, and ignoring the checks and balances.”
  • Also last year, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan said that impeaching the president would be “a dream come true.”

Bryan Fischer Cites Mysterious Red River In China As Proof That Everything The Bible Says Is Literally True

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer seized upon a story about a river in eastern China that mysteriously turned dark red over the weekend, pointing to it as evidence that the Bible can always be trusted since this is exactly what happened in the Book of Exodus.

Saying that this situation is "exactly what you read in the Old Testament account," Fischer proclaimed that "if this could happen, a large river could mysteriously, instantaneously turn blood red in 2014, it could also happen in 1446 B.C."

"Do not abandon your belief in trustworthiness of the Word of God," he concluded.

There is one small difference, of course, since in the story in Exodus the river was turned literally into blood and was not the result of someone illegally dumping dye or chemicals into the river, which is what is suspected of having happened in China.

Tim Wildmon: Putting Michael Sam 'In With All That Beefcake' Is 'Unfair To The Straight Players'

In a fundraising email today, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon starts out by criticizing Keith Olbermann for naming as his “worst person in sports” a former NFL coach who said he would not have drafted openly gay player Michael Sam because “things will happen” and he “wouldn’t want to deal with all of it.”

But Wildmon uses the anecdote to launch into a larger indictment of the progressive movement and its “PC Gestapo,” which he asserts is “out to destroy our country as it has existed” by being “against patriotism,” “against religion,” “against our Constitutional Bill of Rights,” and “most certainly is for promoting the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender movement and punishing people who dare speak against it.”

Which leads Wildmon back to Michael Sam. Having been a sports reporter and been in locker rooms himself, Wildmon can definitively say that “[p]utting a man like Sam, who says he is sexually attracted to men, in with all that beefcake seems unfair to the straight players and a distraction to Sam.”

The politically correct or "progressive" crowd found a new target this week. When asked about "out and proud" football player Michael Sam, former NFL coach Tony Dungy said he would not have drafted Sam had he still been coaching. Said Dungy: "I wouldn't have [drafted] him. Not because I don't believe Michael Sam should have a chance to play, but I wouldn’t want to deal with all of it.  It's not going to be totally smooth...things will happen."

For this comment, ESPN commentator Keith Olbermann named Dungy the "Worst Person in the World" on Monday night. Condemnations of Dungy came from all over.

This is where the "progressive" movement is. If you hold a view that is not in agreement with theirs, you are to be demonized by them, the progressives, who, ironically, don't believe in demons. Why do they do this? Because they, the progressives, consider themselves morally superior to those of us who hold traditional values even though, again, ironically, progressives don’t believe in moral values unless they define them. They moralize against those who promote morality.

The progressive movement is out to destroy our country as it has existed. It is against patriotism. It is against religion in general and is in particular hostile to evangelical Christianity and traditional Catholicism. It is against borders. It is against capitalism. It is for high taxation and government control and regulation of almost everything. It wants people depending on government so they can be controlled. It believes government debt is good. It is against our Constitutional Bill of Rights, in particular the First and Second Amendments. It is for abortion on demand even through nine months of pregnancy. It wants to downgrade the American military.  It rejects the idea that Western Civilization is superior to other civilizations. And it most certainly is for promoting the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender movement and punishing people who dare speak against it.

Basically, what I have just described is the platform of the modern day Democrat Party and the philosophy/agenda of much of the New York/Washington, D.C., liberal media, Hollywood and most university campuses. When Barrack [sic] Obama said he wanted to "fundamentally transform" America, what he was saying to his fellow hardcore progressives was: "I've got the wrecking-ball ready."

Sexually, God made man for woman and woman for man. It's obvious. It's natural. Progressives can't stand this. So they are always trying to equate homosexuality with heterosexuality or elevate homosexuality over heterosexuality. When someone like Dungy makes a comment that can in any way been seen as challenging this narrative then that person must be immediately discredited or publicly shamed no matter the truth of what he is saying.

By the way, having been a sports reporter for a few years I've been in many football locker rooms where the players walk around naked or half-naked, changing clothes and going in and out of the showers. Putting a man like Sam, who says he is sexually attracted to men, in with all that beefcake seems unfair to the straight players and a distraction to Sam.

Would you put a heterosexual man in the locker room/showers with all the female cheerleaders? Would you tell the girl cheerleaders who objected to this man being in the locker room that they needed to end their bigoted and sexist attitude and treat the man with respect?

Tony Dungy will probably survive being the "worst person in the world." But the fact that he is in the crosshairs of the PC Gestapo over this comment is chilling to free speech and free thinking.

It's ironic that the people who now scream the loudest about tolerance have become the least tolerant among us.

American Family Association Advertises Off Of Its 'Extremist' Label

The American Family Association is running radio advertisements holding up its “extremist” label as a badge of honor. Of course, even while boasting about its own extremism, AFA manages to twist the facts.

The group claims in its ad — which ran today on American Family Radio — that it only is considered an “extremist” group not because of its over-the-top bigoted statements but because it supports “church on Sundays,” “intact families,” “free speech,” “freedom of religion” and “belief in Jesus Christ.”

Sandy Rios Warns Trans FBI Agents Will Come After You Following Obama's ENDA Executive Order

Sandy Rios was horrified by President Obama’s decision to sign an executive worker ensuring that federal contractors don’t discriminate against LGBT employees, and had a stark message for her listeners on her Tuesday radio program: “That means of course that maybe in six weeks or so maybe your doorbell will ring and you will have the privilege of being interviewed by an FBI agent male wearing a dress, because that’s really what this does mean, this is stunning.”

Rios, the American Family Association’s government affairs director, alleged that Obama is a “rock star” for the LGBT community and a phony Christian, claiming that she simply does not believe “the notion that Barack Obama is a Christ follower.”

“I can say I’m a ballerina, it doesn’t make it so,” she said. “A Christian, a Christ follower does not legislate ad nauseam rights and benefits and privileges for people who are in a lifestyle that is at odds with biblical truth, just doesn’t do it. There’s the president of the United States, all about homosexuality.”
