Fischer: 'Gay Activists Are Like Leeches'

Bryan Fischer is still miffed by Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's decision to withdraw from the culture war over marriage, declaring on his radio program yesterday that gay activists are like leeches for whom no amount of blood is ever enough.

Pointing to opposition to efforts by Chick-fil-A to open restaurants in New York City, Fischer cited Proverbs 30:15 to proclaim that "gay activists are like leeches."

"The point here," Fischer said, "is that with the homosexual lobby, you cannot ever give them enough. Don't even try. There's no point in making concessions. There's no point in capitulating. There's no point in yielding to their demands. There's no point in offering them some kind of appeasement in the hopes that they will leave you alone, that they will leave you in peace. It won't work":

The American Family Association Doesn't Understand How Bathrooms Work

Apparently, American Family Association head Tim Wildmon and spokesman Bryan Fischer don’t understand how bathrooms work. The two revealed their stunning ignorance in interviews yesterday with OneNewsNow, the news arm of the AFA, about a new bathroom regulation in Washington D.C.

As HRC explains, “the District of Columbia requires single-occupant restroom facilities in any public space (e.g., restaurants) to be gender neutral -- restrooms designed for use by one individual at a time may not have a specific gender designation with ‘male’ or ‘female’ signage or icons -- but does not require employers to have single-occupant restrooms instead of another type” (emphasis added).

But Wildmon and Fischer suggested that now women and men will be sharing the bathroom at the same time, forcing them to “approve sexual deviancy”:

The District of Columbia is enforcing a rule that favors the fraction of transgender people over the majority who know they are male or female.

A regulation on the books since 2006 is now being enforced, requiring removal of signage on single-stall public bathrooms designating it for men or women, in order to accommodate the transgendered community. Public places that don't comply could be charged with a civil infraction and fined $500.

OneNewsNow talked with Bryan Fischer, director of issues analysis for American Family Association. "Well, once again we see an example of how the homosexual lobby is seeking to coerce and compel people of faith and goodwill against their will to accept and recognize and approve sexual deviancy," he says.

In addition, AFA president Tim Wildmon feels that because businesses that don't meet the terms of the regulation face possible fines, it places "yet another strain on American business owners so the LGBTQ community can feel validated."

"Time after time," Wildmon continues, "special rules apply to the LBGTQ community; but the equality for everyone seems to end there, as it's obvious that no thought has been given to the male and female customers of these businesses who prefer the privacy of a restroom specific to their gender."

Fischer points out that mental health professionals still consider transgenderism a mental disorder, "so they need to be helped rather than their deviancy catered to," he argues.

"... We believe that public policy ought to be based on science; it ought to be based on biology," he explains. "And the truth is that every single human being is a male or a female from the moment of their conception until the moment they die – and that ought to be recognized in our public policy."

He says gender differences ought to be respected and privacy considered as well as the fact that many women will be offended, if not struck with fear, seeing a man enter their bathroom.

AFA also criticizes the DC Office of Human Rights for asking residents and visitors to tweet the business name or office if they come across a single-occupancy public restroom displaying a gender-specific sign.

Fischer: It's 'Inexcusable' That America Does Not Have Russian-Style Anti-Gay Laws

Bryan Fischer has made no secret of the fact that he wants to see Russian-style anti-gay "propaganda" laws passed in the United States, going so far as to praise Vladimir Putin as "the lion of Christianity" for leading his nation's crackdown on gays.

On yesterday's radio broadcast, Fischer again voiced his support for implementing such laws in America, declaring that it is "inexcusable" that these sorts of laws are not being put into place here.

"That's a policy we ought to have in the United States," he said of the Russian laws. "It's inexcusable that we allow vulnerable, innocent young children to be indoctrinated, brainwashed, propagandized into thinking that homosexual conduct is perfectly normal and absolutely benign behavior when it absolutely is not":

Fischer: Jesus Doesn't Want You 'To Give Any Kind Of Help' To Someone Getting A Divorce

On yesterday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who was seeking advice on how he should respond to fellow Christians who had sided with his wife when the two got divorced a few years ago.

Saying that his wife had engaged in adultery and then sought a divorce against his wishes, the caller was mystified by the fact that his "brothers and sisters in Christ" had shown up in court to testify on behalf of his wife during a custody hearing.

Fischer was likewise mystified by this, primarily because Jesus said that no Christian should ever provide "any kind of aid or comfort or help to a person who wants to break up a marriage."

"We shouldn't be anywhere around that," Fischer said. "We shouldn't give help, any kind of help - especially testifying in court - we shouldn't give help to the individual that wants to break up what God has joined together."

Doing so, he warned, puts one in direct conflict "with the teaching of Jesus Christ himself":

Fischer: The Poor 'Ought To Be Kissing The Ground' Upon Which The Rich Walk

On yesterday's radio broadcast, Bryan Fischer read from a recent Wall Street Journal article reporting that the top 1% of Americans account for nearly 30% of all federal tax revenue.

To Fischer, that means that the poor and middle class families in this country "ought to be kissing the ground on which [the rich] walk" because it is the top 1% that is paying for EBT cards and food stamps and federal housing.

The rich, Fischer asserted "ought to be given ticker tape parades once a week in all of our major cities to thank them for funding welfare for everybody":

Birds Of A Feather: Senate Hopeful Chris McDaniel Joins Bryan Fischer In Studio

Last week, controversy erupted over various comments Mississippi state senator Chris McDaniel, who is challenging Republican incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran in the GOP primary, made when he worked as a right-wing radio host back in 2005 and 2006.

McDaniel initially dismissed the criticism he received over his comments, asserting that trying to hold him accountable for the things that he said was somehow a desperate cheap shot, though he later attempted to distance himself from some of his past statements.

Naturally, if you are a former right-wing radio host trying to downplay various controversial things you have said in that capacity in the past, the best course of action is to appear, in person, alongside a vehemently anti-gay, anti-Muslim bigot and borderline theocrat like Bryan Fischer on his radio program, which is exactly what McDaniel did today:

Not surprisingly, Fischer didn't see anything particularly offensive about any of the things that McDaniel had said while McDaniel asserted that "no harm was meant" by any of his comments and insisted that using things he said ten years ago against him reeks of desperation:

Right Wing Leftovers - 4/11/14

  • Peter LaBarbera was initially prohibited from entering Canada on his way to deliver a speech to an anti-abortion group, but the decision was later reversed and he was allowed to enter.
  • Mike Huckabee warns that social conservatives will abandon the GOP if the party ignores social issues.  Blah, blah, blah. We've literally been hearing this threat from them for twenty years.
  • Bryan Fischer proclaims that the Nevada rancher locked in a showdown with the federal government "is the most law-abiding citizens that you're ever going to meet." It must be nice to be able to host a daily radio talk show where you are not expected to have any idea what you are talking about.
  • Three parent embryos are being raised on Capitol Hill? How does that work?
  • Finally, Operation American Spring has sent Congress "copies of documents demanding the resignations of six, top government officials, including Articles of Impeachment against President Obama, for violating their oath of office, and/or by committing high crimes against the state, and requiring Congress to enforce the demands, or be held accountable."

Paranoia-Rama: Hitler's 'Super Gay' Race, Gun Tracking Bracelet Myth & Another Bogus Religious Right Persecution Story

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

Did you know that it is illegal to be a Christian in America? Or that World War II was all about promoting homosexuality?

Probably not, but you might just think that if you get all of your news from the paranoid world of the Religious Right media.

5. Hitler’s Gay Dream

Religious Right talk show host Rick Wiles is not happy about the growing support for gay rights in America, which he believes is really the fulfillment of Adolf Hitler’s dream to engender a “race of super gay male soldiers” that would “slaughter” Christians.

According to Wiles, Nazism and World War II had nothing to do with promoting the supremacy of the “Aryan race,” but were all about Hitler’s plan to create a Christian-killing “homosexual special race.”

His guest, BarbWire editor and pastor Jeff Allen, unsurprisingly agreed.

4. Gays Targeting South Carolina For ‘Recruitment’

South Carolina Republicans are fighting the scourge of gay “recruitment,” which apparently has become a major problem in the Palmetto State. State senator and US Senate candidate Lee Bright, for example, is worried that the “homosexual agenda” has “seized the educational establishment” and has gone on “full march in our institutions of higher ed and we’ve gone from education to indoctrination.”

Fellow GOP state senator Mike Fair similarly fears that a lesbian comedian is “recruiting” students into homosexuality at the University of South Carolina-Upstate, and wants to punish the school along with the College of Charleston for their “glorification of same-sex culture.”

3. Gun Tracking Bracelets A-Comin’

It didn’t take long for conservative media outlets to disseminate the false claim that Attorney General Eric Holder announced he would be exploring “gun tracking bracelets” as part of a looming crackdown on gun rights. Of course, Holder never said that he would be tracking gun owners through bracelets.

As Erich Lach of TPM writes, Holder only “talked about ideas for gun safety technology including finger print identification and a bracelet that ‘talks to’ a gun, to allow use only by the lawful owner,” a technology that many gun manufacturers are working to develop.

Naturally, the story moved up from right-wing pundits to GOP politicians like Mitch McConnell and Sarah Palin, who pushed the gun tracking bracelet myth regardless of the actual facts.

2. Religious Right Persecution Story Debunked, Again

It’s time for another bogus Religious Right tale about persecution in schools, this time in North Carolina. Conservatives were outraged when a teacher allegedly tried to dissuade a student from writing a short essay about how Jesus is her hero, and now there is a phony photo circulating of an essay marked with “F: Remove Jesus Please!”

However, as the myth-busting website Snopes points out, the school explained that the only reason the teacher spoke to the student about the assignment was because the student approached the teacher and told her she is having problems writing it.

“Our school has recently been the target of intense negative publicity in numerous forms of the media,” the school’s principal said in a statement [PDF], noting that at no point was the student pressured to drop Jesus as the subject of the essay and that the finished product “is still entitled, ‘Jesus is my Hero.’”

As is often the case, right-wing activists quickly jumped at the first cry of “persecution!,” without waiting for the facts of the case to come out.

1. Christianity Made Illegal!

Back in 2011, a seniors group affiliated with the Traditional Values Coalition sent out mailers with the headline “Christianity Now Outlawed,” warning that President Obama has declared the Bible to be “illegal hate literature.”

Of course it wasn’t true, but conservative activists every year seem to come up with new ways to claim that it is now against the law to be a Christian.

Just this week, Family Research Council head Tony Perkins said that the gay rights movement is transforming America into Nazi Germany, while Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage maintained that Christians are now facing anti-religious Jim Crow laws.

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer took the ridiculousness to a new level, declaring that “it is now a criminal offense according to the Supreme Court of the United States, it is now a punishable offense, you can be fined for being a Christian in the United States of America. For living, behaving as a Christian, it has now become a crime in the United States of America.”

Fischer: It Is Now A Crime To Be A Christian In America

Yesterday, the Supreme Court rejected an appeal from a New Mexico photography studio that had refused to photograph a lesbian couple's commitment ceremony on the grounds that doing so was a violation of the owner's religious beliefs. The New Mexico Supreme Court had ruled against the photographers and ordered them to pay attorney's fees.

Now, according to Bryan Fischer, by rejecting their appeal, the Supreme Court has effectively declared that being a Christian in America is a crime.

"It is now a criminal offense," Fischer said on his radio program yesterday, "it is now a punishable offense, you can be fined for being a Christian in the United States of America. For living, behaving as a Christian, it has now become a crime in the United States of America":

Bryan Fischer Wonders If Teaching The Ten Commandments Could Have Prevented Fort Hood Shooting

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer took a call from a listener who expressed her sorrow over yesterday's shooting at Fort Hood and said that the key to preventing these kinds of things is for Christians to get back to abiding by the Ten Commandments, especially the practice of honoring the Sabbath on Saturday, as God intended.

While Fischer did not agree with the caller about the proper day for recognizing the Sabbath, he did agree about the importance of honoring the Ten Commandments, saying that maybe the shooter responsible for the attack at Fort Hood would not have done so had he grown up being taught the Ten Commandments in school.

Perhaps, Fischer speculated, had the message that "God said 'thou shall not murder'" been driven home to him, things would have been different.

"Somehow or other, that message didn't penetrate to this guy," Fischer said. "And part of it could be that he's just never heard it":

Bryan Fischer Warns 'Modern Family' Makes Gay Couples Seem Like They're 'Tiptoeing Through Tulips' In The 'Garden Of Eden'

Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association is convinced that Modern Family is a “poisonous” show that deceives people into thinking “that heterosexual marriage is bondage,” and expounded on his disgust with the popular sitcom during today’s edition of Focal Point.

Unlike the straight couples on the sitcom who “bicker and fight all the time,” Fischer said, the gay couple and their daughter are portrayed like they’re living in “paradise.”

“It’s the Garden of Eden, it’s paradise, they are tiptoeing through the tulips, everything is wonderful,” he said, warning that the show makes people who “have a marriage of one man and one woman and are happy with each other” seem like “Neanderthals.”

Jesse Tyler Ferguson Laughs Off Bryan Fischer's Claim That 'Modern Family' Is 'Poisoning' America

After American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer called Modern Family a dangerous “poison” that demonizes heterosexuality, Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson laughed off the criticism from the rabidly anti-gay activist.

Ferguson told Huffington Post Live that it is “hard for [him] to even comment” on Fischer’s “hilariously ridiculous” remarks, adding: “You have to allow it to roll of your back, as my favorite drag queen Jinkx Monsoon says, ‘water off a duck’s back,’ I try not to get too worked up about those things.”

The comments on Fischer start at the 14:40 mark.

Listen to Fischer’s anti-gay diatribe attacking Modern Family.

Miller: One of the most popular shows on television, "Modern Family," and you have the guy from "Married With Children" who is married to a young, attractive Latina woman with a kid from another marriage. You've got the heterosexual couple with the stereotypical family; they're the most challenged or, dare we say, the most screwed-up. And then we have the same-sex male family where we have a man and man in a loving, committed relationship that just doesn't have any, any problems. And apparently the promotion on ABC has allowed this show to be very popular and it does impact people and you have good Christians who turn the other cheek, who don't want to be labeled as intolerant and yet, they don't want these values on the airwaves.

Fischer: What's illustrated there is way that the media influences the way that people think about life. The portrait there that's being presented is designed to make you think that same-sex households are wonderful, they're loving, this is paradise, this is the optimum nurturing environment for children; to make you think that heterosexual marriage is bondage, it's dreary, it's gloomy, and we know that the social research indicates exactly the opposite.

...

You know, that's the danger. It's just like getting a little bit of poison over a long period of time, eventually getting enough accumulation in there where it can be kind of lethal to the organism. And I think that's what you're seeing with a lot of this programming. It has to do with kind of the basic view of morality and marriage and life and family that people have. It's very corrosive; people are just watching TV to be entertained, not realizing that their view of life is being twisted in a way that's very harmful to them and harmful to our culture.

Fischer: 'I'm Absolutely Fine With A Fifteen Year Incarceration For The Crime Of Adultery'

On his radio broadcast yesterday, Bryan Fischer was lamenting the consequence of allowing women and gays to serve in the military because, he claimed, it leads to sexual tension and assault. While reading from a Washington Times article about the effort to crackdown on sexual offenders in the military, Fischer made an aside to note that soldiers who engage in adultery while in the service can face up to fifteen years in prison and announced this is a policy that he supports in general.

"I will be honest with you," he said. "I'm absolutely fine with a fifteen year incarceration for the crime of adultery. It is a crime! It destroys people's lives. It destroys families. It breaks up civilizations. You wanna lock 'em up for fifteen years, I have zero problem with that whatsoever":

Fischer Wants Victim's Family To 'Pull The Lever' During Executions Because That Is What The Bible Says

Bryan Fischer continues his campaign to turn the United States of America into a fundamentalist Christian theocracy, declaring on his radio broadcast today that the oldest male relative of a murder victim ought to be allowed to "pull the lever" when the killer is executed because that is what the Bible dictates.

Reading from Joshua 20, which allowed those who inadvertently kill someone to flee to a city of refuge where they would be protected from "the avenger of blood," Fischer asserted that the  phrase was understood to mean that the oldest male relative of the victim had the legal right to avenge the blood of their relative.

To Fischer, this demonstrates that God wants the immediate family of victims to be involved in meting out justice and so our legal system should be changed so that if, for instance, someone were to be executed by firing squad, the oldest male relative of the victim would give the order to fire.

"Or if it is the electric chair," Fischer continued, "the law would give to the oldest male in the family the right pull the lever ... so that the family participates, they have the sense of satisfaction that the death of their loved one has been avenged."

"I know that will sound radical to some of you," he admitted, "but it makes perfectly good sense to me":

Fischer: 'Modern Family' Is 'A Little Bit Of Poison' That Is Slowly Killing Our Culture

Bryan Fischer recently appeared on a right-wing radio program in Idaho where he was asked by host Kevin Miller how he felt about television programs such as "Modern Family" which portray same-sex couples in a positive light.

Fischer was, of course, opposed to such portrayals, saying that they are akin to being slowly poisoned over a long period of time until it finally becomes lethal:

Miller: One of the most popular shows on television, "Modern Family," and you have the guy from "Married With Children" who is married to a young, attractive Latina woman with a kid from another marriage. You've got the heterosexual couple with the stereotypical family; they're the most challenged or, dare we say, the most screwed-up. And then we have the same-sex male family where we have a man and man in a loving, committed relationship that just doesn't have any, any problems. And apparently the promotion on ABC has allowed this show to be very popular and it does impact people and you have good Christians who turn the other cheek, who don't want to be labeled as intolerant and yet, they don't want these values on the airwaves.

Fischer: What's illustrated there is way that the media influences the way that people think about life. The portrait there that's being presented is designed to make you think that same-sex households are wonderful, they're loving, this is paradise, this is the optimum nurturing environment for children; to make you think that heterosexual marriage is bondage, it's dreary, it's gloomy, and we know that the social research indicates exactly the opposite.

...

You know, that's the danger. It's just like getting a little bit of poison over a long period of time, eventually getting enough accumulation in there where it can be kind of lethal to the organism. And I think that's what you're seeing with a lot of this programming. It has to do with kind of the basic view of morality and marriage and life and family that people have. It's very corrosive; people are just watching TV to be entertained, not realizing that their view of life is being twisted in a way that's very harmful to them and harmful to our culture.

Bryan Fischer Explains Why He Only Hires Women As Secretaries

The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer spent part of yesterday’s program talking about the arguments in the Hobby Lobby case, including the fear that if the Supreme Court exempts the business from the contraception coverage mandate, it could open the door to broad religious exemptions from many types of employment regulations .

Fischer declared that this fear was preposterous, because, he claimed, nobody would ever sue on religious grounds to evade the minimum wage requirement (which Fischer said that he in fact has religious objections to) or to discriminate in hiring on the basis of gender. But he then went directly on to tell about how he himself had discriminated on the basis of gender when he was hiring for receptionist and secretary positions at his church.

“I wanted the most welcoming, inviting, hospitable voice I could find on our end of the line,” he said. “And I said, guys, don’t bother to apply. I’m discriminating on the basis of gender here, males need not apply for this position.”

“One of the things that God has built into women,” he continued, “I believe, is he’s designed them to be warm, to be hospitable, to be open-hearted, to be open-handed, to have their arms open, to be welcoming, to be receptive, to create a nurturing, welcoming environment.

“I’ve got other jobs I want guys to do in the church, but this job is going to be reserved for a woman because of the unique things that God has built into women.”

He then invited the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to sue him.

Fischer: 'The Spirit Of The Antichrist Is At Work' In Obama

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer took some time to reiterate his belief that while President Obama is not technically the Antichrist, he is an antichrist and operates under the "spirit of the Antichrist."

Saying that never in America history has this nation been governed by a leader who was as "aggressively and relentlessly opposed to Christianity" as Obama, Fischer said that doesn't mean that Obama is the Antichrist, but rather that "the spirit of the Antichrist is at work in him":

Anti-Gay Activists Blast World Vision For Welcoming Married Gay Christians

Yesterday, Richard Stearns, the president of the American branch of the Christian charity World Vision, announced that the board had voted to change its policy and would now permit legally married gay Christians to work for the organization.

Insisting that this was just a "very narrow policy change," Stearns took great pains to make the case that this should not be seen as any sort of "compromise" on the issue of gay marriage:

"Changing the employee conduct policy to allow someone in a same-sex marriage who is a professed believer in Jesus Christ to work for us makes our policy more consistent with our practice on other divisive issues," he said. "It also allows us to treat all of our employees the same way: abstinence outside of marriage, and fidelity within marriage."

Stearns took pains to emphasize what World Vision is not communicating by the policy change.

"It's easy to read a lot more into this decision than is really there," he said. "This is not an endorsement of same-sex marriage. We have decided we are not going to get into that debate. Nor is this a rejection of traditional marriage, which we affirm and support."

"We're not caving to some kind of pressure. We're not on some slippery slope. There is no lawsuit threatening us. There is no employee group lobbying us," said Stearns. "This is not us compromising. It is us deferring to the authority of churches and denominations on theological issues. We're an operational arm of the global church, we're not a theological arm of the church.

"This is simply a decision about whether or not you are eligible for employment at World Vision U.S. based on this single issue, and nothing more."

Needless to say, anti-gay activists are not buying World Vision's defense and have wasted no time in savaging the decision and accusing the organization of "apostasy."

Franklin Graham:

Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse, issued a scathing rebuke of World Vision, during an appearance the Family Research Council’s Washington Watch radio program.

“It’s obvious World Vision doesn’t believe in the Bible,” said Graham. “I am sickened and heartbroken.”

...

"I was shocked today to hear of World Vision’s decision to hire employees in same-sex marriages. The Bible is clear that marriage is between a man and a woman. My dear friend, Bob Pierce, the founder of World Vision and Samaritan’s Purse, would be heartbroken. He was an evangelist who believed in the inspired Word of God. World Vision maintains that their decision is based on unifying the church – which I find offensive – as if supporting sin and sinful behavior can unite the church. From the Old Testament to the New Testament, the Scriptures consistently teach that marriage is between a man and woman and any other marriage relationship is sin.”

Michael Brown:

This is a betrayal of the gospel, a betrayal of the Lord, a betrayal of the family, and a betrayal of the countless thousands of Christians who have put their trust in World Vision as a legitimate Christian organization.

In no way does it contribute to “building a better world for children” – one of the fundamental goals of World Vision. In fact, it does the opposite.

...

[I]f claiming that two men can “marry” and their sexual acts be holy in God’s sight is not “wavering,” then words have no meaning.

...

Let it be stated plainly to the leadership and board of directors of World Vision U.S.: The Lord Jesus is no longer central in the corporate life of your organization. You have denied his lordship by your actions.

Albert Mohler:

[I]t is ridiculous to argue that World Vision is not taking sides on the issue. The objective fact is that World Vision will now employ openly-gay employees involved in openly homosexual relationships. There is no rational sense in claiming that this represents neutrality.

...

The worst aspect of the World Vision U.S. policy shift is the fact that it will mislead the world about the reality of sin and the urgent need of salvation. Willingly recognizing same-sex marriage and validating openly homosexual employees in their homosexuality is a grave and tragic act that confirms sinners in their sin — and that is an act that violates the gospel of Christ.

...

The shift announced yesterday by World Vision points to disaster. We can only pray that there is yet time for World Vision to rethink this matter, correct their course, stand without compromise on the authority of Scripture, and point the way for evangelical Christians to follow once again.

Matt Barber:

“Just because you say you’re not an official wing of the church or that you’re a para-Christian organization does not release you from the command to adhere to biblical truth and biblical reality as it pertains to sexual morality,” he maintains. “So that is a cop-out – and anyone with a clear understanding of scripture can recognize it as such.”

The Christian columnist believes anyone who claims to be Christian is expected to follow God’s Word, not the world. World Vision, he says, has made it clear where its loyalties lie.

“This very dramatic, counter-biblical, apostate move by World Vision shows where they stand,” he concludes. “They have destroyed their credibility as a Christian organization with one fell swoop – and it’s heart-wrenching.”

Bryan Fischer:

When God has spoken as clearly and as repeatedly as he has on the subject of marriage and homosexuality, it is a waste of breath to ask him if he's changed his mind.

World Vision long ago abandoned evangelism, as a condition of accepting money from the federal government. Now they have abandoned morality as well. Is there now anything, anything at all, that makes this an organization worthy of evangelical support?

World Vision's experience is a sobering reminder that once you abandon God at one point (evangelism) eventually it is inevitable that you will abandon him on other points (sexual morality). One compromise ineluctably leads to another until all is gone.

Christianity identifies greed as a form of idolatry, an expression of the worship of the false god Mammon. Greed, quite simply, is doing something you should not do for the sake of money.

Peter LaBarbera:

World Vision’s sellout is part of a disturbing trend in evangelicalism to capitulate in the Culture War over homosexuality–while the pro-LGBT lobby only ramps up its advocacy of sexually immoral laws and corporate policies.

...

Lastly, World Vision does a great spiritual disservice to its “gay married” employees. By implying that unrepentant, practicing homosexuals can be faithful servants of Jesus Christ while living openly in grave sexual sin and mocking true marriage, WV becomes an impediment to their repentance before God. Salvation requires humbly acknowledging and turning away from sin, just as genuine marriage requires two people of the opposite sex joining to produce a natural family.

Bryan Fischer On Immigration, The Devil, And Slavery

Bryan Fischer spent a lot of time on his radio program today railing against Republicans who support immigration reform, saying they have "sold their souls to the Devil."

Fischer then took a call from a listener named Chris who said that he had to pull his child out of the local public school because nobody spoke English while he has been unable to find work in the insulation industry because he does not speak Spanish.

That prompted Fischer to declare that Chris was literally in "a worse position than slaves because at least slaves had a job":
