Tim Wildmon Says Secular Humanism And Progressivism Are Satanic

Last year, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon spoke at a right-wing conference called "Messages for a Rebellious Nation," where he declared that secular humanism and progressivism are satanic.

"Fundamentally, at its core, secular humanism, if that's what you want to call it — politically, it's called progressivism — but it's the idea that man is God," he said, "began to become front and center in our culture and it took the place ... of the Judeo-Christian worldview. The Judeo-Christian values system that our country was built on is being replaced by secular humanism, which is of Satan."

Extremist Anti-Gay, Anti-Muslim Bigot Bryan Fischer To Join Ted Cruz At Mississippi Campaign Rally On Monday

Update: Cruz canceled his Mississippi campaign swing due to an illness.

We have noted several times before that there seems to be no activist who is too extreme to be embraced by Ted Cruz's presidential campaign and that continues to be the case as today, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer announced that he will be joining Cruz at a campaign rally in Mississippi on Monday.

Fischer said on his radio program today that he'll be speaking at a Cruz campaign rally over the weekend which the GOP candidate will not be attending and again at another rally in Ellisville, Mississippi on Monday at which Cruz will be present.

As we explained in a post that we wrote last year, Fischer is one of the Religious Right's most radical activists and regularly displays stunning levels of bigotry against gays, Muslims and anyone who doesn't share his extremist views:

Back in 2009, Bryan Fischer was an obscure state-level Religious Right activist with a history of getting fired for his radical views. From his position as head of the Idaho Values Alliance, Fischer was mostly known for launching boycotts against Hallmark stores for offering cards for gay weddings and celebrating a fatal plane crash as God's payback for abortion.

Fischer's radicalism and bigotry were obvious even back then, but that didn't stop the American Family Association from wooing Fischer away from Idaho with an offer to serve as the organization's "director of issues analysis" and host a daily radio program down in Tupelo, Mississippi.

Within months of his arrival at AFA, Fischer was already using his national platform to spread his unmitigated bigotry, starting with his demand that all Muslims be banned from serving in the U.S. military, a position that he continues to steadfastly promote to this day.

Within a year, Fischer was using his position at AFA to declare that homosexuality should be illegal and that gays should be treated like criminals and banned from serving in public office. While Fischer was advocating for the deportation of all Muslims and an end to the building of mosques in America, the AFA continued to provide him a platform, just as it did when he began calling for whales and bears to be put to death for biblical infractions and blaming the Holocaust on gays.

...

The AFA plucked Fischer from obscurity, gave him a salary and a national platform from which to regularly proclaim that gays are Satanic perverts but then tried to pretend that it was not in any way responsible for Fischer or his views, such as:

Bryan Fischer Says That Every Abortion Is 'Like Food For Demons'

Bryan Fischer kicked off his radio show today by declaring that "when a nation sacrifices innocent children in abortion or infanticide, that is a sacrifice to demons, it's like food for demons."

"What I mean by that," he continued, "is that act of the shedding of innocent blood, the most innocent among us, it empowers satanic forces, it energizes satanic forces, it gives them the legal right to be at work in our culture, it energizes them, it empowers them, it gives them legal ground, it gives them permission to operate. So every time an abortion is performed in the United States of America, a jolt of power is given to Satan and to satanic forces."

America will never free itself "from demonic oppression," the American Family Radio host warned, "until we stop the practice of abortion."

Bryan Fischer Says 'God Took Antonin Scalia Home' To Make SCOTUS The Central Issue In The Election

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer echoed Glenn Beck as he asserted that God "took home" the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia last weekend in order to highlight the importance of the Supreme Court in the upcoming presidential election.

"I believe God took Antonin Scalia home," Fischer said. "Antonin Scalia shows up and God says, 'Well done, good and faithful servant, you lived out every one of the days that I had written for you in my book, welcome home.' And the timing of this, I believe, God was arranging so that the issue in this election would be focused on the Supreme Court, so that the Supreme Court replacement would be the defining issue of this campaign. Because God knows that we're running out of chances, this is God in His grace calling Antonin Scalia home to his reward in order to make this the defining issue of the 2016 campaign."

Bryan Fischer Says Donald Trump's Evangelical Support Is Being Orchestrated By Satan

On his radio show today, Bryan Fischer said it was "an absolute mystery" to him why self-identified evangelical Christians would be supporting Donald Trump for president, leading him to conclude that there must be something unnatural, otherworldly and Satanic at work.

"You look at Donald Trump and there is something, to me, that is unnatural about his level of support," Fischer stated. "Something there that you cannot explain based on the world that we can see, based on natural causes, based on what is rational and logical and understandable. There is something that is beyond the world of nature that's going on there."

"We know that not every spirit that's out there in the unseen world is a friendly spirit," he continued. "There are spirits out there that mean us harm, that mean our country harm and politics, this power comes from God. Let's not forget that every bit of political power comes from God. Who is going to be interested in getting their hands on the levers of God's power? It's going to be Satan, he's going to be all over that, he's going to try to make sure that the man of his choosing has God's political power to exercise and we as believers need to have our eyes open to that possibility."

Conservative Groups Circle The Wagons On SCOTUS Obstruction

When the news broke of Justice Antonin Scalia’s death on Saturday, Republicans in the Senate almost immediately vowed to block the nomination of any person President Obama puts forward to fill the empty Supreme Court seat.

Conservative groups quickly followed suit, putting forward various rationales for keeping a Supreme Court seat open for more than a year in the hopes that a Republican is elected president in November.

Some of these activists made variations on the false claim that the Senate never confirms judicial nominees during election years. Others warned of dire consequences for America if the president is allowed a Supreme Court pick. One activist going so far as to claim that Scalia’s seat should be kept vacant in perpetuity until a Republican is elected president.

Conservative legal activist Ed Whelan said it would be “grossly irresponsible” to let Obama pick the next justice:

Senate Republicans would be grossly irresponsible to allow President Obama, in the last months of his presidency, to cement a liberal majority that will wreak havoc on the Constitution. Let the people decide in November who will select the next justice.

Whelan also told “Breitbart News Daily” that “we are at risk of really losing the Supreme Court and losing the Constitution.”

The American Center for Law and Justice ’s Jay Sekulow said that President Obama was perfectly free to nominate a conservative to replace Scalia:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley are both committed to letting the American people decide at the ballot box this November, letting our 45th President appoint Justice Scalia’s replacement. While President Obama remains free to appoint a conservative committed to upholding the Constitution as his replacement, he has given us no reason to believe he would.

So the American people should get to decide.

This is a prime opportunity for all branches of government to show that we still have a “government of the people, by the people, for the people.”

Carrie Severino of the Judicial Crisis Network (formerly the Judicial Confirmation Network), said President Obama is the “last person” who should be nominating the next Supreme Court justice:

… This president, who has shown such contempt for the Constitution and the laws, is the last person who should be appointing his successor. The American people on both sides of the aisle are disgusted with the status quo in Washington and another nomination by this President would just bring about more of the same. The people’s voice should be heard in November to determine who will appoint the next Supreme Court Justice.”

Mat Staver, head of the conservative legal group Liberty Counsel (which represented Kentucky clerk Kim Davis and is now representing an anti-Planned Parenthood activist) declared that the “future of the Supreme Court and America” depends on the Senate blocking any Obama nominee:

“With the passing of Justice Scalia, the future of the High Court and the future of America is hanging in the balance. The Senate must not confirm any nominee to the Supreme Court from President Obama. The Senate must hold off any confirmation until the next President is seated. Unfortunately the presidential debates have been more theater and less substance about the real issues surrounding the Supreme Court. The election of the next President has now taken on even greater importance. The future of the Supreme Court and America now depends on the Senate blocking any nominee by President Obama and the people electing the right person to occupy the White House,” said Staver.

The Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins echoed the call to hold Scalia's seat open:

"The Supreme Court has now become the centerpiece in this presidential election. There has not been an election-year nomination in generations and the Senate must not break that trend now. With the election only 269 days away, the people should decide what president should fill this seat," concluded Perkins.

As did the American Family Association’s Buddy Smith:

We cannot allow President Obama to replace him with a judicial activist. Activist judges have mangled the Constitution almost beyond recognition, and we cannot allow Justice Scalia to be replaced by a justice who will continue to shred the Constitution rather than protect it and uphold it.

While the Constitution gives the president the right to nominate Supreme Court justices, it also gives the Senate the right to reject them. The Constitution does not even require an unacceptable nominee be given a vote on the floor.

Americans United for Life’s Charmaine Yoest said, “His loss is tragic, and we hope that when it comes time for the Senate to vote on his replacement, that a worthy successor who can pick up his banner can be found after the election.”

Alan Sears, head of Alliance Defending Freedom, hedged his bets, saying that “it is unlikely that a new justice will be installed prior to the election of our next president.

Janet Porter of Faith 2 Action declared, “The best way to honor Justice Scalia’s legacy is to make sure there is no Obama nominee confirmed by the U.S. Senate.”

Troy Newman, head of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue and a member of Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, warned that if Obama were to nominate the next justice, America would become a “totalitarian government”:

"With the passing of the esteemed Justice Scalia, America stands at a crossroads. Will she choose the path of fascism or freedom? We are just one Obama appointee away from a totalitarian government. Two years ago, the GOP promised the American people that, if elected, they would thwart Obama's radical leftist agenda. This is the GOP's moment. Will it shine as a light for liberty in this dark moment or will that light be extinguished by political appeasement?" asked Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

John Zmirak, editor of James Robison’s website The Stream, went even further, saying that if the next president is a Democrat, a Republican Senate should still refuse to confirm any of their judicial nominees:

But they should go further. As long as Republicans control the Senate, there is no excuse for any pro-choice, anti-gun rights, anti-marriage justices to be confirmed to our highest court. If, God forbid, Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton is elected, they should face a Republican Senate — or even a GOP minority — that will obstruct their every judicial appointment, even if it means leaving key seats on national benches empty, for years at a time. As justices retire or die, the court will simply grow smaller. Big deal. America will muddle through. This is the kind of implacable determination that defeated the solidly conservative Justice Bork and got us the muddled Anthony Kennedy — and Casey v. Planned Parenthood and Obergefell. It is time for that worm to turn.

Conservatives must drop the facade of high-minded bipartisanship, which only ever cuts to the left. The courts have staggering power to change our lives, and damage our country. They can kill our nation’s unborn babies, seize our guns and punish our churches. If GOP senators aren’t willing to fight long, hard and relentlessly to stop that from happening, we should find other senators who can, back them in the next primary election, and cripple the re-election of squishy moderate turncoats. A presidential candidate who appreciates all this will get my vote. And I think he’ll earn yours.

Bryan Fischer Explains How A 'Vapor Canopy' Allowed Methuselah To Live For 969 Years

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer made a passing remark asserting that God has limited the human lifespan to 70 or 80 years, as stipulated in Psalm 90, only to get some pushback from listeners who pointed out that figures in the Old Testament, such as Methuselah, routinely lived for hundreds of years.

Fischer, of course, had a logical way to explain all of this.

Echoing his theory that dinosaurs were really just 1,000-year-old lizards that existed prior to Noah's flood, Fischer explained that prior to the flood, there existed a "vapor canopy that surrounded the earth, this vapor canopy protected the surface of the earth and the people who lived on the surface of the earth from some of the harmful radiation that came from the sun and other sources."

During the flood, Fischer said, that vapor canopy "condensed and fell as rain" and "that protective shield dissipated and so now there were some genetic impacts, impacts on DNA from this radiation coming in with no protection" and "that began to impact the longevity of people."

Bryan Fischer Wants Every Member Of Congress To Have To Pass A Test Administered By David Barton Before Taking Office

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who suggested that every lawyer that works for the federal government ought to be required to attend and pass a class taught by right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton before being hired.

Fischer, of course, thought that was a great idea and suggested that it ought to apply to every member of Congress as well.

"I like your idea," Fischer told the caller. "Everybody, before they take their seat in the halls of Congress, ought to pass an exam on the history of the United States and on the Constitution of the United States administered by David Barton and WallBuilders. I mean, that ought to be a minimum."

"Let's see to it," he declared, "that every congressman has to pass a test on the history of the United States and the Constitution administered by our good friends at WallBuilders."

Bryan Fischer Perfectly Exposes His Utterly Incoherent Theory Of The First Amendment

As we have noted several times before, American Family Radio's Bryan Fischer subscribes to an entirely incoherent theory about the First Amendment, insisting that its prohibition against an establishment of religion only applies to Congress while also insisting that its prohibition against infringing upon the free exercise of religion applies to all levels of government.

The First Amendment says that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," so if the establishment clause only applies to Congress, then logically so too does the free exercise clause. Conversely, if the free exercise clause applies to anything beyond Congress, then so too does the establishment clause. 

But somehow, Fischer cannot seem to comprehend this simple concept and continues to promote his unique and baffling interpretation, as he did on his radio show today while discussing Todd Starnes' latest column alleging that NASA has banned mentions of Jesus in the Johnson Space Center newsletter.

"I cannot begin to even describe to you how much is wrong with that," Fischer said. "Number one, the First Amendment prohibits Congress and Congress alone. The first words of the First Amendment, 'Congress shall make no law.' That is the only entity that is restrained by the founder's Constitution. It's never been amended; it still says Congress. Congress shall make no law. Now, let me ask you this question: are employees of NASA, are they Congress? No! They cannot possibly, conceivably violate the First Amendment of the Constitution even if they wanted to because they're not Congress! Only Congress can do that."

After laying out his case that only Congress can violate the First Amendment's establishment clause, Fischer then immediately turned around and bizarrely attacked NASA for supposedly violating the First Amendment's free exercise clause.

"The other thing about the First Amendment," Fischer continued, "it says that no branch of the federal government, and you might consider NASA a branch of the federal government since it is part of the bureaucracy, they are not allowed to prohibit the free exercise of religion. That's right there in the First Amendment. Make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion. The federal government, not part of the federal government, no agency of the federal government, no bureaucracy of the federal government, no employee of the federal government is allowed to prohibit the free exercise of religion. This is exactly what NASA is doing, prohibiting the free exercise of religion. So it is wrong on so many counts, I can't even begin to tell you."

NASA, of course, is not Congress, so under the first half of Fischer's argument, the agency is not restricted by the Fist Amendment in any way. But, amazingly, that is not the position Fischer took as he then proceeded to insist that the First Amendment applies to every federal agency and employee!

Fischer spent the first half of his argument asserting that the First Amendment only applies to Congress and then spent the second half of that same argument asserting that the First Amendment applies to every part of the federal government. 

In the span of a minute and a half, Fischer managed to promote two views of the First Amendment that are not only illogical but entirely contradictory.  

Sandy Rios: Beyoncé Ushering In The Antichrist With Her 'Black Racism' And 'Lawlessness'

Conservative radio host Sandy Rios joined in on the conservative outrage over Beyoncé’s Super Bowl halftime show performance and “Formation” music video earlier today, calling the singer an anti-white racist whose “lawlessness” could bring about the End Times reign of the Antichrist.

Rios, the American Family Association’s director of government affairs who broadcasts on the group’s American Family Radio network, said Beyoncé “has become just more and more hard, hard, hard and crass, crass, crass.”

“This video that they have produced and released just before the Super Bowl, I guess the song she performed, it’s called ‘Formation,’ I watched it, it’s just disgusting to me,” Rios said. “It’s not only stoking the fires of racism, just stoking hatred, black hatred towards whites and towards policemen, it’s also just crass sexually. It’s like you need a bath. What is this beautiful girl doing, doing this?

Rios also criticized the NFL for letting the performance take place in the first place, claiming that it honored murder and anti-American terrorism.

It’s just in-your-face black racism,” she said. “And also cop hatred.”

After playing a clip of Rudy Giuliani’s criticism of Beyoncé on Fox & Friends, Rios alleged that Beyoncé’s actions contribute to lawlessness in society, which paves the way for the Man of Lawlessness, or the Antichrist.

“Of course, if we undermine the law and order of our country, we will, and probably are, descending into lawlessness, and those of us that understand scripture know that that is a sign of the Last Days,” she said. “The Man of Lawlessness will reign. Lawlessness, the breakdown in respect and honor. And so Beyoncé, who could be such an example to women everywhere, and I don’t care black or white, conducting herself with dignity with all that God has given her, her beauty and her natural talents, instead twisting it into something that is very ugly and very profane.”

This led Rios to also attack female public figures like Hillary Clinton and Madeleine Albright for trying to demonize men and push “a perversion of God’s order.”

Rios’ criticism of Beyoncé puts her in good company at the AFA, as her colleague Bryan Fischer once claimed that the musician was possessed by demons.

Bryan Fischer Says All Islamic Charities Are Merely Fronts For Funding Terrorism

On his program yesterday, notorious anti-Muslim radio host Bryan Fischer criticized President Obama for speaking at a mosque, asserting that there is no such thing as an Islamic charity because all such organizations are nothing more than fronts for funding terrorism.

"There's no such thing as an Islamic charity," he said. "That's just a ruse. That is a terrorist fundraising organization. You see any Islamic organization with the word 'relief' or 'foundation' or 'charity' in it, you are looking at an organization that raises money for terror."

When Christians start a charity, Fischer asserted, the motivation is to "provide charitable relief to needy people" but when Muslims start a charity, the true "purpose is to finance jihad."

"That is it's mission," he said. "That's why it exists and this whole business about it being a charity, being a foundation, that's just a cover to try to avoid suspicion."

Sandy Rios: Liberals Just Using Flint Water Crisis And The Zika Virus To Scare People

Last week, American Family Association official Sandy Rios spoke on her radio program with a caller who was angry that Rios and other conservatives aren’t talking about the Flint water crisis, where policies imposed by the state’s Republican administration directly led to the poisoning of the city’s water supply.

Rios responded by blaming the city’s (powerless) Democratic city officials for the lead poisoning catastrophe and alleged that the disaster in Flint is less important than the threat from ISIS and “our out-of-control borders.”

She then managed to link outrage over the Flint crisis to coverage of the Zika virus outbreak in South and Central America: “The whole issue in Michigan — the left loves to, they’re now creating this, I’m sorry, I’m going to really go out on a limb here, this Zika virus which I haven’t talked about. They love to come up with tragedies and they love to blame and they love to scare people. I think this issue in Michigan is a serious one but I don’t think it’s the big issue that these other issues are.”

When the listener told Rios that she was “devaluing black life” by dismissing the importance of the turmoil in Flint, she insisted that that was impossible because she had no idea whether Flint residents are predominantly black or white.

While Rios, the American Family Association’s director of governmental affairs, isn’t very concerned with the poisoning of thousands in Flint and seems to think that the Zika virus is a liberal scare tactic, she hasn’t been above stirring up actually baseless fears, alleging that Central American migrants would spread measles, Enterovirus D68 and other diseases around the U.S.

Bryan Fischer: 'The Proper Christian Response' To A Gay Couple's Wedding Is 'Grief And Sorrow'

Bryan Fischer invited Peter LaBarbera on to his radio program today so that LaBarbera could share his "research" on which of the GOP presidential candidates are insufficiently anti-gay and therefore should not receive the support of conservative Christian voters this primary season.

Donald Trump was at the top of the list, LaBarbera explained, because he once attended a gay wedding and called it "beautiful."

"Trump went to a so-called gay wedding himself of a friend in New York," LaBarbera said, "and he was quoted as saying, 'It was a beautiful thing.' Trump said that the gay wedding, so-called, that he went to between two men was a beautiful thing. And you have to ask yourself, Bryan, how many Christians ... would say that a homosexual so-called marriage is a beautiful thing?"

Fischer, of course, totally agreed.

"If you have a biblical worldview, you'd be grieved for them," he said. "You'd be grieved for what they're heading into, grieved for the way in which homosexual behavior separates them from God, the risks that it's putting them at, the risk that it's going to put children to if they're adopted into that household. So the proper response would not be joy, it would not be celebration; the proper Christian response would grief and sorrow over what these two people are doing to themselves and also to others."

Kim Davis: God Chose Me To Stand Against Gay Marriage

Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who became a Religious Right hero last year when she tried to stop issuing marriage licenses in the wake of the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision, told an American Family Radio host that she was chosen by God to fight gay marriage.

On Friday, American Family Radio host and American Family Association official Sandy Rios broadcast an interview that she had conducted with Davis, in which she lavished praise on Davis for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. "It's interesting to me how God chose you," Rios said. "Not a Sunday school teacher, not a Republican, not the standard — this is like God, this is so like God, so he chose you."

Davis said that she considered it "a joy to be chosen, to make a stand and to defend my God's word, the infallible word of God."

"You were chosen, Kim," Rios agreed. "I know that. God picked you, plucked you out."

Conservative Pundit: Impeach Kennedy Over Marriage Equality Ruling

On Tuesday, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association denounced the nomination of Wilhelmina Wright for a seat on the federal district court in Minnesota, urging Senate Republicans to not only oppose Wright but also to block every single one of President Obama’s remaining judicial nominees.

The Senate confirmed Wright’s nomination yesterday, angering Rios, who invited right-wing activist Phillip Jauregui of the Judicial Action Group on to her radio show this morning to talk about the importance of judicial nominations.

Rios told Jauregui that the Senate must stop even holding a vote for President Obama’s judicial nominees because “when you put judges on the court who do not respect the Constitution or are not really loyal to American values as expressed in the Constitution, there is no justice.”

The two moved on to discuss the Supreme Court’s decision to take up a case on the legality of Obama’s executive actions on immigration, which Rios found “tremendously concerning because that court is out of control itself and is not delivering justice, they’re delivering their own personal opinions.”

She cited the Obergefell decision, which struck down state bans on same-sex marriage, as one such ruling, saying she was “just devastated” upon hearing about the “absolutely irrational” decision. “It made no sense whatsoever and I don’t trust them anymore,” she said.

Jauregui, criticizing Justice Kennedy’s “horrendous” opinion in Obergefell, said that the justice is “horrible and he’s honestly a judge that ought to be impeached”

Later, Jauregui claimed that members of Congress would never block the president’s executive actions, giving him a reason to issue further ones of questionable legality. “This is not far from an imperial dictator we’re talking about,” he said.

Rios urged congressional Republicans to “find their spine” and stop spending time hating on Ted Cruz.

Sandy Rios: 'White People Everywhere' Terrified Of Criticizing People Of Color

Earlier today, Hans von Spakovsky of the Heritage Foundation spoke with Sandy Rios, a radio host and governmental affairs director with the American Family Association, about the nomination of Wilhelmina Wright to a federal district court seat in Minnesota.

Von Spakovsky alleged that Senate Republicans have refused to put up a fight against Wright, who is scheduled for a confirmation vote later today, even though, according to von Spakovsky, she is an extremist who hates the U.S. Constitution and thinks America is a racist country.

Rios claimed that Republicans aren’t blocking Wright’s nomination because they are “afraid” to oppose a black nominee. In fact, Rios said that “white people everywhere” are simply terrified of passing judgment on any person of color, which of course explains why no one on the Right has ever criticized President Obama.

“I am saying that a lot of this is coming from this fear now of white politicians, white spokesmen, white senators, white people everywhere, afraid to make any kind of a decision or judgment on someone who has a pigment in their skin, no matter what, because they will be accused of racism no matter what,” Rios said.

She went on to argue that Senate Republicans should “put a halt to confirmations” of judicial nominees altogether “because that has nothing to do with color.” Von Spakovsky agreed, saying that Republicans should oppose any nominee for the federal bench because they will all share President Obama’s “radical left-wing views.”

Bryan Fischer Rips Nikki Haley For Embracing 'Sodomy-Based Marriage And The Entire Homosexual Agenda'

Bryan Fischer was "grossly disappointed" in Nikki Haley's Republican response to last night's State of the Union address and spent two segments of his radio show today ripping the South Carolina governor as a feckless "toady" and a "lackey" for the Republican establishment.

Fischer was particularly outraged that Haley had dared to say that Republican "would respect differences in modern families, but we would also insist on respect for religious liberty as a cornerstone of our democracy."

"What does she mean by that?" Fischer asked. "She means that the Republican Party has officially embraced sodomy-based marriage. That's what that means. The Republican Party has officially embraced sodomy-based marriage and the entire homosexual agenda." 

"You parse that," he continued to fume, "we're not going to invest one ounce of energy as a party, as ruling-class Republicans, we're not going to invest one ounce of energy in fighting to protect natural marriage. We're not going to invest one ounce of energy to try to preserve the right of children to be raised by a mom and a dad. We know from the research, it's a form of child abuse for a child to be raised in a same-sex household. It is a form of child abuse; all of the best in social research confirms that and here is Nikki Haley saying we're not going to fight for those children, we're not going to fight for the children that are subjected to a form of child abuse by being raised in a same-sex household."

Sandy Rios: Pray That Obama Won't Seize Total Power

Add Sandy Rios of the American Family Association to the growing list of conservatives who believe President Obama may try to remain in office after his second term ends.

A listener called into Rios’ American Family Radio program this morning to predict that “Obama is not going to step down” from office, much like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chávez, because “he’s going to enact martial law” and possibly stoke a “civil war.”

Rios, naturally, agreed with the listener’s assessment, suggesting that Obama may follow Chávez in seizing complete control over the government through “democratic means.”

“Your warning is very justified,” she said. “I had a South American leader who was teaching me these things who said, ‘This is what we see Obama doing from a distance, the very same thing, the method that’s being taught by — ,’ I don’t know exactly who wrote it down but Fidel Castro was in the center of all of it, this new way of taking over governments. So the warning that you give is very justified.”

She ended by agreeing that we should all pray for Obama not to grab total power.
