McFarland: Obama Voters 'Need To Get On Their Knees And Ask God's Forgiveness'

Alex McFarland is a Christian apologist who hosts a radio program on the American Family Association's radio network and serves as director of Center for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at North Greenville University, where he occasionally organizes right-wing conferences featuring speakers like of David Barton, Ben Carson, and Todd Starnes.

In a piece published on Charisma today, McFarland reiterated his belief that Barack Obama's presidency is God's judgment upon this nation, saying that everyone who voted for him must fall on their needs and beg for God's forgiveness:

We have a president today who has not only fundamentally violated his oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution but has also actually acted against our nation and our national interests. These aren't opinions; they are facts. And the American people need to be aware of them.

...

These are not simply political issues or political differences. They are fundamental worldview issues. What do we believe about life? What do we believe about liberty? Any president who believes the sanctity of life is nonexistent, the rule of law noncritical and the sovereignty of America nonessential is a president whose administration is without redemption. And the consequences our nation and the world are suffering may very well be evidence of God's judgment against a nation that has rejected Him.

As in 1776, this is not a time for inaction; it's a time for fervent prayer and repentance across our nation.  Those who supported this presidency—either through ignorance or through malicious intent—have supported the taking of human life, the rejection of Israel's right to defend itself, and the promotion of homosexuality to the detriment of the family. And those who supported these things need to get on their knees and ask God's forgiveness for violating His Word and to pray for His mercy on our nation.

And we as a nation need to corporately turn to God, repent and pray for constitutional and moral leadership that honors God's Word. Anything less will mean more Americans will die, more families will be destroyed, and the world will become a more dangerous place for life and liberty. And that is a tragedy none of us should be willing to accept.

  • Sometimes we wonder if Bryan Fischer just stays up at night trying to figure out ways to troll for attention: "Perhaps the most sinister and dangerous lie the left has beaten into the brains of unthinking Americans is that there is strength in diversity. Nothing could be further from the truth. Diversity, as the first syllable in the word implies, divides. It does not unify. It fractures, debilitates, and diffuses. Energy that could be harnessed through unity of purpose and values is frittered away."

Alex McFarland: Homosexuality Is Satanic, Cuts Life Expectancy By Twenty Years

James Dobson invited Anne Paulk and Alex McFarland to discuss homosexuality this week on his radio show “Family Talk,” and as you could imagine they were not exactly happy with the rise of gay rights in America.

On the third and final broadcast, McFarland made the case that “clearly homosexuality is a destructive behavior,” citing “the actuarial charts of life insurance companies show that gay men live twenty years less than their heterosexual counterparts.” The claim that gay people live twenty years less than straight peers refers to a study conducted in the late 1980s and early 1990s during the AIDS crisis, and one of the authors claims that their research has been “ grossly misrepresented” by anti-gay activists.

McFarland went on to claim that Satan is using gay and transgender identity to “debase and devalue and harm the ones made in God’s image.”

Dobson also used the program to swear that he has “never said anything hateful to a homosexual” or “tried to increase that pain and that rejection.”

Alex McFarland: 'Psychologically Destructive' Homosexuality Creates Problems In LGBT Community, Not Homophobia

On James Dobson’s “Family Talk” radio program earlier this week, Religious Right pundit Alex McFarland disputed claims that high rates of depression, suicide, and self-abuse among gay people are connected to internalized homophobia.

“Here in America, we’re told ad infinitum that depression and psychiatric illness among professed homosexuals is due to our culture of homophobia,” he said. “It’s our fault when homosexual people have mental stress.”

Furious that anyone could possibly link anti-gay activism to anti-gay bigotry, McFarland concluded that, once again, the problems lie within gays themselves: “Along with what I believe is spiritually destructive behavior and physically destructive behavior, homosexuality is psychologically destructive behavior.”

Thankfully, ex-gay activist Anne Paulk was also on the air to supplement McFarland’s wisdom with an “unscientific survey” she conducted among gay women on the causes of their own depression and poor mental health: “They didn’t even mention homophobia, their family of origin’s point of view, none of that. It was the breakup of a same-sex relationship that precipitated this sense of, ‘Oh, my life’s not worth living anymore.’”

Paulk lamented that the media routinely points the finger at anti-gay intolerance for issues many LGBT people face, yet failed to conduct their own research proving that homophobia is actually a manufactured problem. Clearly, these four accredited studies just can’t stand up to the solidity of Paulk’s “unscientific survey.”  

Alex McFarland: God Punishing America With Obama Presidency, Gay Rights And Immigration

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer hosted Alex McFarland on Friday’s edition of “Focal Point,” where McFarland claimed that President Obama, gay marriage, and immigration are all judgments of God upon America.

“Here in America we have chosen new gods and we are being judged,” he said, citing the Book of Judges. “All of the chaos we’re seeing is the beginning of judgments,” he said.

McFarland was promoting his upcoming conference featuring speakers such as conservative activist Ben Carson, pseudo-historian David Barton, AFA head Tim Wildmon, and Fox News commentator Todd Starnes.

'Project 2026' to Fight the Gay-Muslim-Atheist Alliance Destroying America

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer spoke yesterday with fellow AFA radio host Alex McFarland about Project 2026, which McFarland explained is a long-term initiative to save America from annihilation at the hands of “the four groups that are actively working to secularize and destroy America: humanists; atheists; militant homosexuals; and Muslims.”

McFarland: There is a remnant, there is hope, there are still some people who know how to pray and call on Heaven but we are right now ripe for either a manifestation of God’s judgment or God’s mercy.

Fischer: Alex, you’ve got Project 2026, I want you to talk a little bit about Project 2026 because in this project you’re not just talking about what’s going on in 2013, you’re looking ahead, a forward view. 2026 is going to be the 250th anniversary of our founding, what is Project 2026 all about?

McFarland: It’s a response, it’s a fifteen year program and we are beginning to get a lot of momentum, it’s a fifteen year program to re-remind our culture about some things that are core that I believe without the rediscovery and reaffirmation of these things we’re going to lose democracy: God; life; morality; family; freedom of religion; American exclusivism, not that we’re better or deserve better but we are unique on the stage of human history. The thing that prompted me Bryan is the four groups that are actively working to secularize and destroy America: humanists; atheists; militant homosexuals; and Muslims. All four of these groups got major momentum beginning in the ’60s and ’70s but they dug in their heels and they said: ‘we’re going to work forty years and we’re going to mainstream atheism; we’re going to mainstream militant homosexuality; dare we say it we’re going to see gay marriage legitimized.’ Why can’t God’s people dig in their heels and say: ‘we’re in it for the duration and America will not die on our watch.’

Fischer claimed that Americans are unwittingly relying on the “moral and spiritual capital” created by past generations and once it is all used up “America could be finished.” McFarland warned that “apostate” churches and people “that are enlisted for Satan” are pushing societal collapse.

Fischer: The analogy that Ray [Stedman] used is what we had been doing in each succeeding generation, we had generations of Americans that built up a certain moral and spiritual capital and we have not been replenishing that capital, we have been depleting it. So succeeding generations, without even realizing that they are consuming the spiritual seed corn that was accumulated by generations that came before them, have been consuming that moral and spiritual capital and it looks to me Alex like we’re at a place where virtually all of that seed corn is gone and if we don’t once again begin to rebuild that moral and spiritual capital America could be finished.

McFarland: Exactly. You know what’s so sad is in the church, you’ve got the church existing in four states: healthy churches; alive but anemic churches; backslidden churches; and some that are apostate, they are rejecting basic biblical doctrines. The church, it ranges from healthy to apostate, but what about the world? You’ve got your garden variety lost people who need Jesus but then you’ve got those who I believe are deluded by Satan and you’ve got some that are enlisted for Satan.

Dinesh D'Souza in Hot Water with Religious Right over Sex Scandal

Sarah Posner brings to us an emerging controversy surrounding Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative pseudo-intellectual who has been on the Religious Right media circuit pushing his anti-Obama “documentary,” as he is apparently seeing another woman who is not his wife. The evangelical WORLD Magazine reports that D’Souza has been introducing his fellow right-wing activists “a young woman, Denise Odie Joseph II” as his fiancée, even sharing a room with her, while at a conference with Alex McFarland, who interviewed D’Souza when he guest hosted The Janet Mefferd Show. He told WORLD editor Warren Cole Smith that he had filed for divorce from his wife, Dixie, but according to court records he only filed the day Smith spoke to him and “under California law, that starts the clock on a six-month waiting period for divorce.”

D’Souza styles himself as a fierce defender of marriage against gays and lesbians and it appears that Odie Joseph II, seen here with D’Souza’s new book, also has strong views on marriage, cohabitation and divorce. In a post on a conservative blog, she rails against feminists and “RINO men” for ruining marriage and traditional morality. “Feminists/liberals who intended to destroy and transform that sacred cornerstone of American society—the traditional family” she explains, adding that today’s state of the family proves that “the 19th Amendment was never the best idea ever.” She blames feminist academics for increases in adultery, failed marriages and cohabitation, and even goes on to say that America’s children “are going the way of black ghetto society” thanks to feminists and Ke$ha.

RINO Republicans are analogous to fathers who proudly proclaim their conservativeness at dinner parties or perhaps during early afternoon phone calls to El Rusbo’s show, but let their “independently-minded” wives (translation–women who get their marching orders from St. Oprah or more recently, The View ) pump their teenagers full of birth control and encourage their daughters to live the lives for which their bra-burning foremothers fought so valiantly. Indeed, this particular post was inspired by one such RINO Dad I know exceedingly well, at exactly one such dinner party, several years ago. RINO Dads are those guys who will sheepishly to proudly, fill out Republican ballots on Election Day while their wives openly mark their support for things like, “freedom of choice” and “freedom from poverty.” What most people don’t realize, and indeed what I didn’t realize until I blocked out the “madding crowd[ii],” is that these women and their RINO men are like a vast national living history museum, pictographically illustrating exactly why the 19th Amendment was never the best idea ever and in fact, more closely resembles the greatest show on Earth. Think Ringling Bros[iii]. If these modern families keep at it, museums telling the hieroglyphical tales of our civilization might be all that is left of us.



In the 1960s and 1970s, feminists and liberals of other stripes started pointing out the hypocrisies of what they termed “patriarchy.” Time and again, they urged us to recognize human’s natural “animal instincts” in relation to traditional morality and therefore, to reject traditional institutions such as marriage as outdated because now these intellectual elites had things like biology and sociology, things like women’s studies, gender studies, and critical race theory, to back them up. They pointed to infidelity or infamous sexual desire surveys (conducted by homosexuals)[vi] among traditionally married couples to “prove” their theses. Limb by limb, they tore the traditional family to shreds until they reduced us to the shining bastion of zoological (but even animals aren’t this bad and do not depend on the state to care for them)cesspool equality that we have now in every American ghetto and which is seeping out into the middle and upper classes in less animated ways. These people, like their European counterparts, are the ones who will go extinct. For instance, we have raised an entire generation of boys who, permanently scarred by their parents’ divorces(perhaps over issues such as infidelity) cannot emotionally connect or commit to any one woman in any meaningful way and so we also have an entire generation of girls for whom that coveted diamond solitaire comes later and later in life, with more and more contractual caveats (prenups). Somehow, when it happens after 5 years of living together, after 1 year of non-exclusive dating followed by another 3 years of recurring breakups over the male’s unwillingness to “commit,” getting that ring for which you girls will surely be paying your hard-earned half, doesn’t feel quite like the fairytale it used to.



Since I do not trust the U.S. Census Bureau to report accurate or clear statistics[ix] (See US Census Bureau Admits ‘It Artificially Inflated the Number of Same Sex Couples’ link below)I will not try to provide any statistics on the number of single-mom or grandparent households in the U.S. today, or their relative poverty (both cultural and financial). However, it is fair to say that the numbers reflect an unquestionable victory for the feminists/liberals who intended to destroy and transform that sacred cornerstone of American society—the traditional family.



If they took a moment to actually listen to the music their children listened to, or a moment to look at the way their children dress, they would realize that they are going the way of black ghetto society. They would realize that by failing to do the job their foremothers cherished, their wives, who don’t even know enough to scoff at Madeline Dahlgren and who should be the proud, moral guardians of their homes, are leading their RINO (and real Republican civilization) to their inevitable demises. Non-black youth today speaks the language of bitches and hoes as well as black youth and non-black youth males expect the same level of promiscuity from their female peers. For example, Ke$ha (apparently the traditional alphabet has gone the way of cursive, who needs it anyway? Just another archaic trapping of grace and beauty…useless) is a young, white female who reportedly wakes up in the morning feeling like the black rap hero, P Diddy. She has enjoyed a string of top ten hits which, if you live in America, you would have definitely heard, even if you had no intention of doing so. Her breakthrough video, “Tik Tok[i]” (which incidentally utilizes about as many syllables as an ADHD-ridden culture can handle) features her waking up in her parent’s bathtub, filthy, fully-dressed, and hung-over after a long night of partying. Without bothering to attend to hygiene (granola-brand feminists should love this), Ke$ha, who trendily refers to the police as “po po” and who is apparently still young enough to be living with her parents, drunkenly stumbles downstairs to her well-dressed, clean-cut, conservative-looking nuclear family, sneers at them in all her godforsaken glory, and walks out slamming the door on her way to play with innocent looking (until the day they meet Ke$ha) elementary school-aged children on the block.

Dinesh D'Souza: Where are Obama's Ex-Girlfriends?

Dinesh D’Souza is out with a movie that is supposed to vet Obama, playing to the conservative activists’ laughable claims that Obama never received any serious scrutiny throughout his political career. While speaking to Alex McFarland, who was filling in for talk show host Janet Mefferd yesterday, D’Souza said that Obama is “the most unvetted man, president, in modern American history,” because he hasn’t released his SAT or LSAT scores, college transcripts, the topic of thesis paper and a list of the names of his ex-girlfriends. As FactCheck.org notes, colleges are prohibited from sharing their students’ records with the public, and we actually do know the topic of Obama’s thesis paper (nuclear disarmament). There have even been extensive stories about his relationship with one of his ex-girlfriends. But until we know all of their names, D’Souza seems to think, we really know nothing about the President!

So there’s a real chord out—striking a real chord out here, and I think the reason is people are just hungry for new information about Obama and that this film does provide. Very often we hear critiques of Obama but not new facts about Obama. Remember there’s so much unknown about this guy, right? Let’s put aside the birther issue, I mean, what were Obama’s grades at Occidental College? Unknown. What was his SAT score for getting into college? Unknown. What was his GPA at Columbia? Unknown. What was his thesis about? Unknown. What was his law school test, his LSAT score, for getting into Harvard law school? Unknown. Who were his friends at Columbia? Unknown. He talks about having a bunch of girlfriends, where are they? What are their names? Unknown. So here’s a guy surrounded by black holes in his biography, he’s the most unvetted man, president, in modern American history.

AFA Host Warns Obama's Marriage Equality Endorsement 'Will Contribute to the Damnation of So Many Souls'

American Family Association radio host Alex McFarland said that President Obama’s support for marriage equality has put America under “the judgment of God” and “will contribute to the damnation of so many souls,” especially “impressionable young people” and “his own daughters.” McFarland went on to doubt Obama’s Christian faith and called for leaders to “bow before the scriptures of God rather than the icons of Hollywood like George Clooney.”

Watch:

McFarland: In further legitimizing in the minds of millions of people, especially impressionable young people, especially his own daughters, our president’s position this week will contribute to the damnation of so many souls. Mr. President if you could hear this, you need to repent and for one thing let Jesus Christ become the Lord of your life because quite obviously right now he isn’t. Let God’s word guide your positions and you thought because right now it’s quite obvious it isn’t. Repent of leading the people of America astray and may the good Lord help you to lead in a more righteous way going forward. I love our president, I pray for our president, I wish him God’s blessings but I can tell you individually and nationally the judgment of God will be on us if we continue to thumb our nose at his truth and to wonder from it, may God give us leaders who are humble enough to bow before the scriptures of God rather than the icons of Hollywood like George Clooney.
