On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer praised Gordon College in Massachusetts for maintaining its policy prohibiting students, faculty and staff from engaging in "homosexual practice."
Fischer, who has long favored the criminalizationofhomosexuality, hailed the move, declaring that this is the "good kind" of discrimination that should underlie all of our public policy while laughably asserting that this sort of discrimination does not target people, but simply behavior.
"Discrimination against sexually immoral behavior is good," he said. "I'm not talking about discrimination against people here, not even talking about discrimination against people based on their sexual orientation. It's based on their behavior. We discriminate against sexually immoral behavior, not against the person because unless they act out on it, unless they do something, unless the commit an immoral act they're not properly the subject of these kind of policies. But if they engage in that kind of behavior, then it's appropriate that be a subject or a matter for discrimination of the good kind":
Alarmed by reports that more than half of those living in Los Angeles who are between the ages 18 to 34 are bilingual, Bryan Fischer declared on his radio program today that the fact that more and more people are speaking a language other than English in America is a sign of God's judgment upon this nation.
Seemingly unaware that the bilingual individuals profiled in the very article that he cited speak English in addition to another language, Fischer linked the rise of multilingualism in America to the story of the Tower of Babel in the book of Genesis in which God "confused the people with different languages" as punishment for their arrogance, saying that the same thing is now happening here.
"When God's judgment falls on a nation for turning its back on him," Fischer said, "one form that that judgment takes is that people lose their ability to talk to each other. It's a form and expression of God's judgment ... I believe God's judgment is beginning to settle in on this land in the form of linguistic isolation":
So it came as a bit of a surprise to us to hear Fischer declare on his radio show today that conservatives such as himself "believe in live and let live."
"That's the difference between liberals and conservatives," he said. "Conservatives believe in live and let live. I may disapprove of your lifestyle, but I'm not going to use force to try and stop you from making those choices. You're going to have to answer to God, you'll have to deal with the consequences of your behavior. Liberals are not like that. They want to control every decision that people make. They lust for power and politics is where they find it":
Earlier this week, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation received a complaint from a soldier at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia about the fact that military personnel manning the entrance gate were regularly wishing those who entered a "blessed day." After a call from MRFF to the commander in charge of security at the base, the gate personnel were instructed to change the welcome greeting to "have a nice day," which is not sitting well with the American Family Association.
On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer discussed this situation with Randy Sharp, the AFA's director of special projects, and after they spent a segment complaining about it, the two concluded that the person who filed the complaint must obviously be lonely, confused, and very angry and therefore in need of prayer.
"Pray for this young man," Sharp asked Fischer's radio audience, "that God would open the door for the Gospel to be presented to him and that he would come to the saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Nothing could be better."
Fischer then led the listening audience in prayer, asking that God would see "the loneliness, the confusion, the anger" in this soldier's heart as well as the "deceptions that that he has believed about you and about life and about Christ," and praying for an opportunity to arise for someone on the base to be able to minister to this soldier and "speak the truth, the life saving Gospel of Jesus Christ into his life":
On Monday, shortly after 47 Republican senators sent a letter directly to Iran’s leaders in an effort to undermine the Obama administration’s nuclear negotiations, someone posted a petition on the White House’s open petition forum calling on the government to charge the senators with treason, which has since collected over 200,000 signatures.
American Family Association governmental affairs director Sandy Rios said on her radio show today that she knows exactly who is behind the petition: President Obama.
“And now there are 148,000 people who have signed a petition charging these senators with treason. And guess who’s behind it. I know you’ll never guess. The Obama administration has set up a system that lets people submit petitions, so that’s what they’re using.”
If, as Rios implies, the White House is behind every petition on its “We the People” platform, it is also behind petitions demanding that President Obama resign and be tried for treason himself.
“It’s a huge percentage,” Rios said. “It’s just amazing, they’re experimenting and being exposed to this stuff, things they would have never thought of, so they are trying it.”
Camenker said that he is familiar with kids “who have gone into this lifestyle because of the peer pressure in the schools, and I also know kids that got into it and because of the proper intervention by their parents got out of it and are leading normal lives now.” He added that “often just bringing a kid to a normal environment for a while will help straighten the boy or girl out, just not being subjugated to the brainwash.”
Brian Camenker of the anti-LGBT group MassResistance appeared on “Sandy Rios In The Morning” yesterday to discuss how marriage equality is ruining Massachusetts, a problem that Camenker previously described in great detail to “The Daily Show.” Rios, the American Family Association’s governmental affairs director, said that people need to know the facts about gay marriage’s supposedly disastrous consequences since people “watch HGTV and they see gay couples happily cohabitating and they don’t understand what’s behind all of this.”
“This is kind of like trying to talk about the Holocaust without showing pictures,” Rios said. “They killed Jews. So that’s bad, but if you don't understand what they actually did — you need to know, ladies and gentlemen, what is actually being taught to the kids because really, some of it Brian can’t even say, most of it you can’t even say.”
Rios was especially upset about a pamphlet on sexual health designed for the gay community, known as “The Little Black Book.” While the pamphlet is geared towards adults, Camenker said that it was pushed on children.
“This book is focused on teenagers and it tells them very graphically how to perform the most ridiculous, horrible homosexual sex acts,” Camenker said. “There’s no way I can tell you this because they are so disgusting…. You’ll get sick just reading them.”
On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer responded to reports of ocular syphilis cases among gay men in California by declaring that homosexuality is now turning people blind. This led Fischer to promote the myth that immigrants are bringing measles and polio-like illnesses into the U.S and to claim that immigrants and gay people are bringing back diseases once thought to be eradicated.
Fischer eventually connected the health story back to a popular slogan used to protest racial discrimination: “All we’ve heard over the last number of months is ‘black lives matter,’ ‘black lives matter,’ ‘black lives matter.’ I agree, black lives matter. If you’ve got a behavior, you’ve got a conduct, you’ve got a lifestyle that is resulting in potentially blinding health risks for black males and their risk is five times higher than white males, I would say if black lives matter, it is time we started doing something about that.”
Fischer, who supports criminalizing homosexuality, said that by “warning homosexuals of the consequences of homosexual behavior,” he is showing them far more love “than those who are urging them to engage in conduct, celebrating conduct, promoting conduct, providing special privileges on the basis of conduct that can leave its practitioners both blind and dead.”
Mike Huckabee, who once vowed to fight the purported secular theocracy running America, spoke yesterday to American Family Association President Tim Wildmon about how the left seeks to “impose” its “secular values” on conservative Christians, who Huckabee insisted do not want to impose their views on anybody.
He added that liberals simply cannot and will not understand the intellectual principles found in his book “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy.”
“We’re never going to be fully understood by people on the secular left,” Huckabee said. “They don’t want to understand us, they want to ridicule us, they want to hold us in contempt, they want to hold us up to scorn and so they’re going to because we represent a direct threat to their worldview. If there really is an alternative to the secularist’s mind and we can articulate it, defend it and do it in a way that even can be intellectually defensible, then that’s a direct threat to their worldview.”
Huckabee said people on the left resist such views because “their version of diversity is really uniformity; they don’t want diversity, they don’t want a different point of view, they want everyone to agree with their point of view.”
The potential GOP presidential candidate went on to rail against groups like Right Wing Watch for quoting remarks he makes on conservative media: “Every time I’ve come on this radio show, as you know your show is monitored by the secular left, they listen to every word that is uttered on AFA…. Every time I’m on this show there is something I say that will just end up getting picked up by the secularists and they’ll blow it up and it will go viral.”
“So let me go ahead and give them one just so they’ll have something that they can write down and Twitter out right now,” Huckabee continued. “The second reason that a lot of this reaction comes against believers is because of the New Testament principle of ‘don’t cast your pearls before the swine.’ I’m going to let them look that up, they’ll get the context, they won’t use the context, they won’t understand the context but it’s a metaphorical device that Jesus used to explain why people can’t see the obvious.”
“The point is that for many of us we’re accused of wanting to impose our religious values on someone else; the fact is we just don’t want someone’s secular values imposed upon us,” he said.
Right-wing pastor, radio host, and Tea Party activist C.L. Bryant was a guest on Bryan Fischer's radio program yesterday, promoting his film "Runaway Slave," which seeks to woo black voters away from the Democratic Party:
Using leading black conservatives as "conductors," Rev. Bryant believes it is time for a new Underground Railroad to help liberate all Americans from the Government plantation that has left the black community dealing with a new form of slavery: entitlements.
During the interview, Fischer and Bryant asserted that President Obama is not an authentically black American and so his election was actually a "slap in the face" to all those who are.
After Fischer wondered how things would have been different if someone with an authentically black American experience had been elected president, Bryant asserted that "Al Sharpton would have been a more legitimate first black president than Barack Hussein Obama" because Sharpton "has a slave history."
"When you look at Barack Hussein Obama, whose father was Kenyan, his mother is white," Bryant said, "he does not have that history to tell about how he overcame. ... See, black people are so emotionally attached to the color of skin that sometimes we will accept the fact that well, he's black. Not in the sense that you're talking about."
Fischer then went on to assert that Obama "experienced privilege all along the line" and never experienced any sort of mistreatment and therefore cannot serve as "a living testimony to the promise and the possibility that the United States offers, that these things are no longer things that need to hold you back or restrain you or restrict you [because] in Obama's case, they never did."
"His election," Bryant responded, "over anybody like a Herman Cain or an Alan Keyes or someone of that nature is actually a slap in the face":
Sandy Rios of the American Family Association took to her radio show today to blast President Obama for making remarks in favor of gay rights in his speech at the event marking the 50th anniversary of the Selma civil rights march. Rios said Obama, along with Attorney General Eric Holder and Rev. Al Sharpton, would never have marched in the Selma protests because they are too comfortable with their wealth and power.
“I can’t imagine the president and Eric Holder marching, knowing on that bridge that they might be giving their lives,” Rios said. “I find myself thinking that there is way too much privilege and pleasure and wealth in this new generation of black leaders to understand the sacrifices of their founding fathers of the Civil Rights Movement like Dr. Martin Luther King.”
Rios claimed Obama and Holder simply don’t understand the civil rights struggle since they have “gotten wealthy complaining about things they’ve never experienced” and are “privileged men who have been to great universities, accumulating great wealth, great privilege.”
“They do very well and yet they complain,” Rios said. “They stoke at the sores of the real grievances, the real legitimate grievances of black Americans and they make money off of it, they get rich off of it, they upset people over it in order to take power over them, to make them think that they actually care and they actually want to do something when all they really want is their vote and their massive support so that they can do other things that really and truly will undermine and destroy the black community.”
Last week, Oklahoma state Sen. Joseph Silk made news by defending a bill that he had introduced that would allow Christian business owners to discriminate against gay customers under the guise of protecting religious liberty, telling the New York Times that gay people "don’t have a right to be served in every single store."
Naturally, Silk was a guest on Bryan Fischer's radio program today, where he declared that such legislation is necessary because gay activists "do not want people to have freedom"
"I tell people this all the time," Silk said, "the LGBT activists do not want people to have freedom. They do not want people to be able to exercise their religious convictions. They don't at all and people really don't understand that."
After warning that "there is a tremendous amount of spiritual warfare going on" in the fight over his legislation, Silk went on to call upon the church "to get vocal" in support of this bill before the government shuts them down.
Gays "want their behavior condoned and they want their behavior accepted," Silk said, "and the church doesn't understand it's coming to the church. If we continue to lose this, very, very soon the church will not have the right, according to the government, to preach that homosexuality is wrong. That's where this road is going. That's why it's so important":
On Friday, rabidly anti-gay activist Scott Lively joined Bryan Fischer in-studio for several segments, where the two argued that homosexuality is worse than murder and genocide and that acceptance of gay marriage is "a harbinger of wrath of God."
In a later segment, Lively warned that while other nations may have already legalized gay marriage, it will be different when America does so because "we're the only nation established on the Bible." As such, America will face a massive "calamity" and wholesale collapse of our national infrastructure if gay marriage ever becomes legalized throughout the country, he said.
"When the United States, in its official policy, establishes homosexual sodomy as a basis for marriage under the Constitution," Lively warned, "that's a whole new ballgame and I'm predicting that we're going to see some kind of calamity and judgement is going to occur ... We're going to suffer the consequences of this and we're going to see a rapid meltdown of the infrastructure of the country, especially anything related to the Christian infrastructure of America."
"When they pass this, if God doesn't intervene, they're going to come out of the gate," he continued, "the entire leftist block is going to declare complete victory for their entire agenda and they're going to shift to the last part of their stage of their conquest, which is punishing dissenters. You haven't seen anything yet":
Last month, rabidly anti-gay activist Scott Lively warned that if the Supreme Court strikes down state bans on same-sex marriage, it could lead to the rise of the Antichrist by the end of the year.
Naturally, Bryan Fischer decided to have Lively join him in-studio for his radio program today so that he could discuss his warning to America as well as promote the upcoming prayer vigil that he will be holding outside of the Supreme Court.
Lively told Fischer that America is about to cross "a line with God that hasn't occurred in the entire history of the world since Noah's flood," which he once again asserted was brought about by the celebration of "homosexual marriage."
"The final straw for God was when they started celebrating and engaging in homosexual and bestial marriages," he said.
Lively went on to declare that homosexuality is "the most egregious form of rebellion against God" and is a sin that is "worse than murder and worse then genocide."
"It's not just another sin," he continued. "It's really a harbinger of the judgment of God ... The celebration by the society [of homosexuality] is a harbinger of the wrath of God":
Needless to say, Carson's retreat is not sitting well with Fischer, who spent twosegments of his program todaycriticizing Carson for his refusal to defend his statement and saying that he may have fatally offended his base with his apology.
"Dr. Carson seems to be not considering the possibility that some people could be offended because he apologized," Fischer said. "They're disappointed in him because he apologized."
He went on to criticize Carson for listening "to the wrong people ... instead of worry about what the base thinks about what they have done and what they have said."
"He may have done fatal damage to his campaign with his apology last night," Fischer said. "The bottom line is that on homosexuality and maybe on everything else, Ben Carson needs to decide right now whether he is going to listen to God or his handlers. His career is in the balance":
In fact, Fischer was so impressed with Carson's statement that he declared that Carson has now set "the benchmark for the other Republican candidates" and called for every other possible GOP candidate to be asked the same question so that they are all forced to state for the record whether they believe that being gay is a choice.
"I hope they are asked this question," Fischer said. "I want every single Republican candidate on record: Do you think that homosexual conduct is a choice? I want every GOP presidential candidate to be asked that question and to be put on record. Do you believe that homosexuality is a choice? What is your answer?"
After telling listeners last month to prepare for martyrdom, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association today warned that Christians in America may soon face death at the hands of terrorists.
Rios, reeling over yesterday’s collapse of the GOP effort to defund part of the Department of Homeland Security in order to block President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, said Obama’s immigration policy could lead to the death of Christians at the hands of ISIS.
“Some of us, honestly, may face martyrdom, there’s no question,” Rios said. “I’m not sure in our lifetime although it could be with ISIS waging — you know, now the borders are so porous and we are being so careless with our immigration policy, there are many things that may unfold more quickly than we think.”
On her radio program this morning, the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios claimed once again that young immigrants are responsible for a recent outbreak of Enterovirus D68, even though health experts have found that thereisnolink between immigrants and the debilitating illness. After reading a Washington Post story about the illness that didn’t mention any connection with immigration, Rios went ahead and suggested that Central American children who “were shuttled to unknown place around the country” spread Enterovirus D68 to other kids.
Rios backed up this assertion by claiming that immigrant children don’t have any basic understanding of hygiene and are largely unvaccinated, despite the fact that Central Americans have a higher vaccination rate than U.S. youth. She even claimed that the kids don’t even know how to use the bathroom.
“We have vaccinations and hygiene and cleanliness and we teach people in western civilization how to go to the bathroom properly, how to take care of things, how to do things in a sanitary way,” Rios said. “Do you not think that when we open our borders to a glut of people from another world who have never been trained, don’t know that, that that’s not going to bring in disease?”
Potential GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina stopped by “Sandy Rios In The Morning” on Friday at CPAC, where she and Rios discussed reports that the Clinton family’s charitable foundation received donations from foreign countries. Fiorina, who has close ties to the foundation, dedicated part of the interview to attacking Hillary Clinton over the contributions.
Towards the end of the interview, Rios told Fiorina to “remember that Hamas and Hezbollah does [sic] charity work too, I’m not talking about yours, but you said that the Clinton Foundation does good work, that’s the way the left always operates, they do some good stuff.”
Fiorina said that she will at least credit the foundation for doing “some good work in Haiti,” but “now we see that there is a corruption in that foundation that is truly problematic.”
