Wilson: God will Curse America for Re-Electing Obama

Yesterday, Buster Wilson of the American Family Association said that God will punish and curse America for re-electing Obama over his supposed mistreatment of Israel. He also lamented that health care reform will not be repealed and that if Obama has the opportunity to appoint new justices to the Supreme Court then Roe v. Wade will not be overturned any time soon. Later, he added that “homosexuality and the demand for protected and equal rights will now succeed and sweep the nation” as schools will teach children “as young as kindergartners that homosexuality is an accepted lifestyle.”

Because of America’s choice last night, there are a few things I know. First, I know that the Supreme Court will now have the possibility of two, maybe three, justices that will be appointed by President Obama. During the next four years he will have definitely one Supreme Court justice retire, possibly two, and there is a possibility of a third that would retire. So that will give him the opportunity to appoint, as he has already done, ACLU-type liberal lawyers for the Supreme Court justices, if he gets the chance to appoint two or three he could change the balance of the court and that will be that way for the rest of our lives. It will take the rest of our lives before the court could be changed again. Because of that, what do we know? One thing that we know for sure, the long sought after and deeply longed for overturn of Roe v. Wade by those of us that believe that abortion is murder probably won’t happen. If you get more liberal justices in the Supreme Court you’re not going to see Roe v. Wade overturned. We’ll have to continue to fight that battle in different directions. Second thing I know for sure—number one the court will change and become more liberal for the rest of our lifetimes—he second thing I know is that Obamacare will not be repealed, Obamacare will be fully implemented in our lives.



The third thing I know is homosexuality and the demand for protected and equal rights will now succeed and sweep the nation. Four states voted for it in some fashion yesterday and that means that when they teach that homosexuality is an accepted lifestyle to your kindergartners like they did, I think it was in New Jersey or Chicago I don’t remember where it was, but it does happen even though they mock us and say we’re making this up. We’re not, they teach as young as kindergartners that homosexuality is an accepted lifestyle, when they do and you don’t like it, you’re not going to have any chance to do anything about it because this country is going to be swept off its feet in this direction by this president. The fourth thing I know, you can look for the sure judgment of God against our nation, the curse of Genesis 12, because we won’t treat Israel any better than we did before.

Owens: If Marriage Equality Passes the 'Whole Gamut of the Family is Going to be Destroyed'

William Owens of the virulently anti-gay Coalition of African-American Pastors and the National Organization for Marriage talked to Sandy Rios and Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association for their organization’s election night special about the “unbelievable” impact if Maryland voters approve their state’s marriage equality law, which did indeed pass. He said if we “change God’s law” by legalizing same-sex marriage and adoption then “the whole gamut of the family is going to be destroyed and all areas of the social life will be destroyed from what has been for thousands of years.”

Election Night With the AFA: Obama Won Because he Harnessed People's Capacity for Envy, Hate, & Greed

Like Glenn Beck, the American Family Association also hosted a live election night broadcast which took on a somber and sour mood once it became clear that the conservative agenda was going down in defeat all across the board, prompting Sandy Rios to say that Elizabeth Warren was elected to the Senate because Massachusetts had been inundated by gays who destroyed the educational system as she watched in horror the breaking news that Todd Akin was being "blown out" in his bid for the Senate.

Morton Blackwell was then brought in to explain that President Obama was going to win re-election because he "did not underestimate the capacity of people to harbor envy and hate and greed for something for nothing," while Bryan Fischer suggested that perhaps we ought to just split the country in half and let conservatives run their half and liberals run the other ... with a massive wall in between, of course, to keep out all the liberals who would try to sneak in.  

For Tim Wildmon, Obama's re-election could best be explained by the fact that he was re-elected by the states where people don't go to church before finally simply declaring that "it's a tragic night":

Fischer Blasts Gov. Christie, Says That Not Allowing Price-Gouging is 'Socialism'

On today's broadcast, Bryan Fischer blasted New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for praising the Obama Administration's response to Hurricane Sandy and for refusing to campaign for Mitt Romney in the midst of the recovery.  And if that wasn't bad enough, Fischer also criticized Christie for taking a strong stand in support of the state law that bans price-gouging on gasoline during an emergency, saying that not allowing sellers to charge whatever they want amounts to "socialism" and only serves as a disincentive to the production of more gasoline:  

Kirk Cameron: Defeat Obama to 'Hold Back the Flood of Moral and Spiritual Evil that has been Pouring into the Country'

Kirk Cameron told his fellow anti-Obama activists Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association that Christians must use the election to “hold back the flood of moral and spiritual evil that has been pouring into the country and give moms and dads and grandparents the opportunity to begin rebuilding morality and spirituality.” Wildmon added that Obama must be defeated for “freedom to reign.”

Perkins, who once claimed Obama voters must “repent,” described a conversation he had with prominent conservative pastor Jim Garlow about how God will grant America a “reprieve” and delay judgment if Obama is ousted. “I see what could happen here today if we are successful in removing someone from office who has basically set themselves in defiance to everything that is biblically oriented in terms of the history of our country and the word of God,” Perkins said, “that it’s a reprieve, it’s not a solution.”

He claimed that voters in 2008 “chose the economy over the moral foundation of the country when we selected Barack Obama as president,” arguing that an Obama defeat now could allow the church to “begin focusing on the moral and spiritual condition of our nation.”

Starnes: Obama to Blame that 'Gangs of Roving Thugs' Have Taken Over New York in Storm Aftermath

Today on "Focal Point," Bryan Fischer welcomed Fox News' Todd Starnes to provide an update on the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which Starnes insisted was Hurricane Katrina multiplied by five.  While Fischer asserted that the Red Cross "has been virtually useless," Starnes insisted that the Obama administration's response has likewise been an utter failure because New York is now a "jungle" overrun by lawlessness where people have to sleep with baseball bats and knives because they are terrified of "these gangs of roving thugs."

After Starnes declared that "this is a very clear example of Barack Obama's America; this is his Katrina," Fischer again wondered if this "lawlessness" was something the nation would see on a larger scale if President Obama does not win re-election, which prompted Starnes to assert that members of his family are fully prepared to defend themselves in such an event, which is all Obama's fault: 

Inhofe: Obama 'Has Tried to Destroy Every Institution that Makes America Great'

Today, Sen. James Inhofe stopped by "Focal Point" to give Bryan Fischer his predication about next week's election, saying he wanted it on the record that not only is Mitt Romney was going to win "by a substantial margin," but that Republicans will also win control of the Senate because, even though people don't want to say it, "they realize this president has tried to destroy every institution that makes America great." 

"This is still America and they can't get by with that," Inhofe declared, before predicting that Todd Akin would win the Missouri Senate race because his "legitimate rape" gaffe "was a long time ago":

Fischer: 'There Will be Blood' and 'Civil Unrest' if Obama Loses

On yesterday's radio program, Bryan Fischer expounded on a tweet he sent out the other day predicting that there would be organized "flash mobs" who would loot and riot if Mitt Romney wins the election.  Fischer based this theory on reports of looting in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, saying such looting "is just a preview of what's going to happen if President Obama loses the election" and warning that "there will be blood" and "civil unrest":  

Beisner: Hurricane Sandy was Sent By God as 'a Matter of Grace'

Today on "Focal Point,"  Bryan Fischer brought on Dr. Cal Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance to discuss the impact of Hurricane Sandy.  Beisner, who received his doctorate in Scottish History, is the Religious Right's favorite climate change "expert" primarily because his entire agenda is rooted in the belief that environmentalism is a religion that is out to destroy Christianity.

Back in 2011, after a massive tornado devastated parts of Missouri and killed more than 300 people, Beisner claimed that it was sent as "a little taste" of God's judgment, which is a claim he reiterated this time around, saying that through Hurricane Sandy, God is alerting mankind that "there is an eternity of suffering ahead" for those who do not repent and is therefore really "a matter of grace."  That prompted Fischer to declare that Americans now need to "search our hearts, we need to go before God, we need to fast and pray to see if we can understand why we may be, at this time, the object of God's wrath": 

Perkins: Lena Dunham's 'Disgusting' Obama Ad 'Takes Politics to a New Low'

Today, Tony Perkins and Tim Wildmon welcomed Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn onto their "AFA Today" radio program to discuss the open letter she recently wrote to President Obama expressing her outrage over the "offensive [and] repulsive" campaign ad featuring HBO's Lena Dunham.

Like Blackburn, both Wildmon and Perkins were deeply offended and disappointed by the ad, but were not shocked by it because what can you really expect from a party that "booed God." Perkins said the ad was just the latest example of the Democratic Party treating women as "sex objects," calling it "disgusting" and "demeaning to women" and saying that this ad featuring a woman from such a "sleazy show" just "takes politics to a new low":  

Fischer: Obama 'May in Fact be a Closeted Muslim'

While taking calls from listeners yesterday, Bryan Fischer was asked by "Chip in Fitzgerald, Georgia" why nobody in the mainstream media was reporting on the fact the WND-based conspiracy theory claiming that President Obama's wedding ring proves that he is a Muslim.

While the obvious explanation would be that nobody has reported on it because it is nonsense, that was not the explanation that Fischer offered because he knows the real reason the media is not reporting on it is because it is evidence that Obama "may in fact be a closeted Muslim": 

Fischer: If Obama is Re-Elected, 'America has no Future'

As is his usual practice, Bryan Fischer began his radio program yesterday with a Bible reading and discussion, in this case a passage from 2 Kings.  It is Fischer's belief that the Old Testament was preserved so that we can understand "the principles by which God deals with nations," and this reading prompted him to declare that if this nation re-elects President Obama in November "I sincerely believe that America has no future" as the decision "will either delay [God's] day of judgment or it will hasten that day of judgment":

Wilson: Obama is Leading a 'War on Christian People'

Lawsuits challenging the mandate for contraception coverage have not fared well in the courts, but American Family Association general manager Buster Wilson today said that the provision is clearly unconstitutional and is proof of the Obama administration’s purported hostility towards Christians. “There’s no war on women, that’s a fantasy,” Wilson said. “The war is on Christian people.” He later warned that the government may soon “cause you to hire homosexuals” and eradicate religious freedom.

There’s no war on women, that’s a fantasy. The war is on Christian people. The war is on the First Amendment. What does the First Amendment say, let’s just go back to basics, what does the First Amendment say? The First Amendment says Congress shall impose no law that prohibits the free exercise of religion. What is this mandate out of the Obamacare law if it is not a congressional imposition on the exercise of religion?



If they win this argument then we will lose other religious liberties. Here’s the way the argument will go: we have proven through the courts and otherwise that businesses don’t have the freedom to practice the religious liberties of the First Amendment so we can cause businesses to do anything. Next will be to cause you to hire homosexuals or next will be to cause you to pay into something else you don’t agree to. I mean it will just be one thing after another. And for all the folks out there from Right Wing Watch and all their entities that want to mock us for this, you just wait, one day something is going to come that is going to infringe on some Constitutional liberty that you cherish and you’re going to start screaming bloody murder too.

Wilson: Obama acts like a 'Junkyard Dog'; 'Homosexual Practitioners' may soon Censor Pastors

Buster Wilson of the American Family Association was riled up by President Obama’s performance in the final presidential debate, attacking him on Twitter for trying to “execute the angry black man persona.” On American Family Radio, Wilson added that Obama acted like a “junkyard dog” during the debate and is the “most arrogant” president ever.

You know what, Mitt Romney is I know now is a far better man that I would ever be, I believe I would have looked around and looked at the camera and I would have looked at Bob [Schieffer] and I would have said: you know what, I don’t have to take this, you’re supposed to be the President of the United States and you’re talking to me as some Chicago-area, like some Chicago-land junkyard dog, and he did. That was the most arrogant display I’ve ever seen by anyone with the title of President of the United States. But Mitt Romney sat there and smiled, he’s a big man.

Wilson, who appears to become deeply upset every time he is featured on Right Wing Watch, was also angry that we posted his comments arguing that gays and lesbians seek to “redefine all of life.” He said that the “homosexual practitioners” at “Big Gay” seek to use anti-bullying laws to censor and punish pastors. Of course, the Religious Right also said the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act would turn pastors into criminals and censor the Bible, but since their assertions were completely bogus and never materialized, they are now apparently employing the same exact claims to oppose bullying-prevention policies.

He was also very angry about the Missouri pastor who substituted “racial integration” with “gay rights” from segregation-era speeches to demonstrate how the arguments used against desegregation and interracial marriage decades ago are now being employed to oppose gay equality. Wilson said that the pastor’s speech mocked and belittled the Bible and suggested that the pastor who delivered the address is gay; he isn’t but as we know Wilson has never cared much for basic research anyway.

Big Gay wants the government to set aside people who choose homosexuality as a style and form of sexual behavior, and please let’s be completely honest about this that is exactly all that we’re talking about here, they want these people to have special protections under the law. How does that rob us of rights? These special protections, as is being lobbied for right now by the Southern Poverty Law Center and others, would prevent an evangelical Christian pastor from having the freedom of speech and the freedom of uninhibited religious exercise. Those special gay rights would require Christians not to speak against—would require us Christians not to speak against homosexual rights, practices and etcetera because if we did we could be charged with bullying and be censored for it. Churches, they want, could lose their tax exempt status.

There are those who are right now trying to financially harm Christians who don’t want to be a part of same-sex marriages, like florists and landowners, well Big Gay won’t have any of that, homosexual practitioners should have the right to get whatever they want or else, or else you and I suffer for it, we’ll find you they say, we’ll have you put out of business if you dare say no to helping us have a same-sex marriage event. Doesn’t matter if you are a Christian florist owner and believe that homosexual marriage is wrong religiously and thus don’t want to participate in it, doesn’t matter, the homosexuals are special and they want protected rights that protect them from we Christians to bully them. And they get to accuse us of bullying them even if we refuse to serve them.

Right Wing Watch it is not baseless to say that Big Gay wants to redefine all of life, for us, for evangelical Christians. They have claimed that homosexuals should change our military, they say that homosexual students have the right to live without hearing anyone disagree with hem or else be charged with bullying, that’s one way they want to redefine us all, simple disagreement now becomes hate, simple disagreement now becomes bullying and they will see to it that you are punished for it. Another example of the twisted and comical logic of Big Gay is their insistence that the gay fight is the same as the civil rights fight of the black community, now that Right Wing Watch is the silly and hysterical argument that you should be writing about. There is a new viral video of a I suppose gay pastor who has pushed this particular civil rights argument before the civil rights argument before the city council of Springfield, Missouri.



What’s happened here is the first thing I noticed out of all this, besides the entire fallacy of the argument in total, was the fact that this guy was claiming to be a pastor of a church, a reverend he called himself, and got up there and belittled the word of God in the way that he did. That was the first thing that caught my heart. I couldn’t stand up and mock the word of God in how it was used by anybody incorrectly or how somebody else might misuse it, I couldn’t do it, I have too much high regard for the Holy Book of God to stand up and use it in a lie and use it in a mockery, but he did and I guess he’s okay with it.

 

Religious Right Attacks 'Demonic' and 'Mean' Obama in Final Debate

"Mean," "Demonic," "Retard" -- just some of the words Radical Right leaders used to describe President Obama in his winning debate performance on Oct. 22. Find out who said what.

Fischer: I am a 'Prophetic Voice' Warning Against the Gay Agenda

On today's program, Bryan Fischer reiterated his belief that America is "going to have to choose between the homosexual agenda and liberty, because we cannot have both," asserting that a lot of people do not realize that this choice has to be made, which is why it is so important for those "prophetic voices," such as himself, to speak up and "alert people to coming danger before they can see it": 

'Religious Freedom' Rallies Barely Conceal Anti-Obama Activism

Opponents of contraception access this weekend held “religious freedom” demonstrations across the country to protest the Obama administration’s new rules ensuring contraception coverage in health insurance plans. In one of the rallies last month in Washington D.C. in front of the White House, speakers including Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition and Lila Rose of Live Action denounced the Obama administration for their purportedly “tyrannical” insurance mandate.

The keynote speakers at the White House rally was none other than Father Marcel Guarnizo, whose claim to fame is denying a lesbian parishioner communion at her mother’s funeral and refused to attend the burial ceremony. Fr. Guarnizo said that pro-choice and pro-gay equality politicians are “unfit to rule” and are “not worthy of a democratic vote.” He went on to maintain that American democracy is on the brink of collapse and told attendees to “vote this man out of office in November.”

He also had harsh words for Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who championed his state’s marriage equality law, claiming that they are more than unfaithful Catholic “lost sheep” but “wolves who are plotting and working specifically against the common good and the Church.” “Those people need to be castigated publicly by the shepherds of the church,” Guarnizo said.

Also appearing was American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer, who warned that legal abortion and gay rights is provoking God’s “judgment and wrath” on America. 

Wilson: Gays Seek to 'Redefine All of Life'

American Family Association’s Buster Wilson never misses an opportunity to promote baseless, strange and bizarre conspiracy theories, which made his Friday radio program quite comical, as he ironically dedicated his segment to promoting intellectual and rational discussion, something he says the mean folks at ‘Big Gay’ refuse to do!

One of my big pet peeves is that people on the left, people in Big Gay, people like Southern Poverty Law Center, people like that, they do not have the capacity—I supposed because they never do—it’s either they don’t have the capacity or they absolutely have no desire, to literally try and have any kind of intellectual conversation about these issues that we all talk about and sometimes disagree on. There is no ability to reason, no ability to have sane conversation, it’s just name calling and personal attack.

Later, Wilson responded to latest Gallup polling on the number of people who openly identify LGBT by arguing that the gay community is attempting to “redefine all of life” and undermine the freedom of speech and religion.

They’re not that many in the population, we are changing the definition of marriage, we are changing rules regarding religious freedoms and freedom of speech, we are called hate groups and everything simply because we do not want to redefine all of life for 3.4 percent of people who for the last four, five thousand years were not accepted in the way they want to be accepted.

Fischer: The UN is 'Deliberately Seeding" Muslims Throughout the Southern United States

On Friday's radio program, Bryan Fischer reiterated his call to ban immigration to the United States from Muslim-majority nations because "while there are moderate Muslims, no one has yet developed a error-free way to tell the difference between the Muslims we have to worry about and the ones we don’t. Until that day comes, we must be cautious about them all."

While discussing this point on his program, Fischer warned his listeners that the United Nations, with the help of the US government, was systematically importing Muslims into America and "deliberately seeding them" all throughout the South: 

We are importing Muslims from Muslim-majority countries hand-over-fist. We have delegated to the UN the choice of those that come to the Untied States as refugees; we have said to the UN "you pick 'em and we'll take 'em in." So what the UN is doing, they are just flooding the United States with Muslims as refugees and they're distributing all throughout the South. Why are they building that huge mosque in Murfreesboro, Tennessee? I mean, most of them have never even heard of Murfreesboro, Tennessee? What are they even doing there? Well that's the United States government importing these Muslim immigrants at the behest of the UN and dropping them in these communities all over the South, deliberately seeding them all throughout the United States.

Fischer: CNN is 'What the Gay Gestapo Looks Like in Action'

To say that Bryan Fischer is furious about his failed appearance on CNN earlier this week where anchor Carol Costello threw him off the program would be a bit of an understatement, as yesterday he went off on an epic rant against the "gay gestapo," saying that Costello's refusal to allow him to spew his bigotry unchallenged on national television is exactly what "the gay gestapo looks like in action." 

Fischer made multiple references to the "gay gestapo," proclaiming that "the stormtroopers of the homosexual movement" and "the Nazis in the gay gestapo" will punish anyone who says that "homosexuality is immoral, it is unnatural, and it is unhealthy - that is a simple, straightforward statement of fact" because "it is a crime of blasphemy against the god of gayness": 

We really hope that this serves as a wake-up call to any media outlets who might be thinking of giving Fischer any sort of platform from which to promote his radical agenda in the future, because this is unbridled bigotry that drives it.
