Ben Carson's Bible-Based Tax System and Other GOP Adventures In 'Biblical Economics'

In last night’s Republican presidential debate, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson said he would base a new tax system on the biblical system of tithing. “I think God is a pretty fair guy,” he said.

And he said, you know, if you give me a tithe, it doesn’t matter how much you make. If you’ve had a bumper crop, you don’t owe me triple tithes. And if you’ve had no crops at all, you don’t owe me no tithes. So there must be something inherently fair about that.

And that’s why I’ve advocated a proportional tax system. You make $10 billion, you pay a billion. You make $10, you pay one. And everybody gets treated the same way. And you get rid of the deductions, you get rid of all the loopholes, and…

Carson has plenty of company on the far right. The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer has declared, “God believes in a flat tax.” On his radio show last year, Fischer said, “That’s what a tithe is, it’s a tax.”

Of course, that kind of flat tax would amount to a massive tax cut for the richest Americans and a tax hike on the poorest. So it’s not terribly surprising the Koch brothers’ Americans for Prosperity has teamed up with the Religious Right to promote the idea that progressive taxation is an un-Christian idea. AFP joined Religious Right groups to create the Freedom Federation, one of the right-wing coalitions that sprung up in opposition to Barack Obama’s election as president. The coalition’s founding “Declaration of American Values” declares its allegiance to a system of taxes that is “not progressive in nature.”

David Barton, the pseudo-historian, GOP activist, and Glenn Beck ally, is a major promoter of the idea that the Bible opposes progressive taxes, capital gains taxes, and minimum wage. Barton’s views are grounded in the philosophy of Christian Reconstructionism, a movement whose thinking has infused both the Religious Right and Tea Party movements with its notion that God gave the family, not the government, responsibility for education — and the church, not the government, responsibility for taking care of the poor. 

That’s how we have Republican members of Congress supporting cuts in food stamps by appealing to the Bible. And how we get Samuel Rodriguez, the most prominent conservative Hispanic evangelical leader, saying that a desire to “punish success” — i.e. progressive taxes — “is anti-Christian and anti-American.”

This notion that laissez-faire economics, small government, and flat taxes are divine mandates, and that taxation is theft, is also how we end up with the Heritage Foundation promoting the idea that “[t]hose who esteem the Bible should also applaud St. Milton Friedman and other Church of Chicago prelates, because their insights amplify what the Bible suggests about economics.” And the idea that unions and collective bargaining are unbiblical is how we get Religious Right groups celebrating Scott Walker’s war on unions.

Todd Starnes: It’s The Liberal Media's Fault That Everyone Thinks Donald Trump Is Bombastic

American Family Radio’s Bryan Fischer invited Fox News commentator Todd Starnes onto his radio program this afternoon to discuss tonight’s Republican presidential primary debate, and of course the conversation turned first to Donald Trump.

Reading from a Politico article that reported that Jeb Bush called Trump an “asshole” and a “clown” after Trump retweeted a racist comment about Bush’s wife, Fischer asked, “Which Donald Trump are we going to see? Are we going to see Mr. Green Jeans or are we going to see a guy with his hair on fire?”

Starnes replied that this was the wrong question to be asking because Trump’s “bombastic” appearance is all a set-up by the liberal media.

“I’m wondering if perhaps the political chattering class is trying to goad Donald Trump into some sort of a fight with Jeb Bush during the debate,” he said. “Because Mr. Trump, leading up to tonight’s debate, has been talking about how he’s going to, he’s not going to be a bombastic individual, he’s going to have a pleasant conversation.”

“And you know, Bryan, when you really step back and look at Donald Trump and look at him as a businessman, I suspect that we’ve all bought in to this caricature that the media is creating, the mainstream media is creating, that this is how Donald Trump acts all the time. So I would not be surprised to see him even-keeled and steady-as-she-goes tonight.”

Fischer agreed that “this has the potential to be one of the most boring debates on record.”

Bryan Fischer: 'I Just Don't See How We Escape God's Judgment For What We Are Doing With Abortion'

American Family Radio host Bryan Fischer warned yesterday that God will most likely judge America for legal abortion, leading to “a complete cultural and societal collapse.”

“I would have to say, I think, given what I’m seeing in these videos and how that just brings into plain relief the moral collapse of this nation for decades now, I just don’t see how we escape God’s judgment for what we are doing with abortion. I just don’t see how that’s possible,” he said, referring to the recent series of videos smearing Planned Parenthood.

“I fear that we have passed the point of no return and we are going to wind up with a complete cultural and societal collapse,” he warned.

Bryan Fischer: God Let Sandy Hook Shooting Happen Because Of Legal Abortion

On his American Family Radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer revisited the topic of the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting, which he blamed at the time on the end of government-sponsored prayer in schools.

Why, he asked yesterday, didn’t God intervene to stop the killing of 20 children at the Sandy Hook school? “Well,” he explained, “Isaiah has an answer. It’s not that he can’t. It’s because our sins as a nation have driven God from us.”

Fischer read a passage from the Book of Isaiah in which the prophet warns that “our iniquities have made a separation between you and your God and your sins have hidden His face from you so that he does not hear, your hands are defiled with blood.”

“So as we lift our hands in prayer as a nation, what He sees is the blood on our hands of the 57 million unborn babies whose lives have been taken through abortion,” Fischer explained. “So He can’t hear our prayers because the blood of the unborn cries out to Him and He can’t hear our prayers over the pleas of the blood of the unborn.”

“So if we’re once again going to have God hear our plans, we have got to clean up our act, and that’s got to start with abortion,” he said.

Fischer then repeated the comment he made shortly after the 2012 shooting: “We have spent the last 60 years in our culture telling God to get lost, and we wonder why He’s not around when we need him? God’s a gentleman, he will not go where he’s not wanted.”

Bryan Fischer: No Father Should 'Put His Son In Proximity To An Adult Homosexual'

On his American Family Radio program today, Bryan Fischer read from his most recent column, in which he argues that allowing that the Boy Scouts of America’s decision to allow gay men to serve as troop leaders will collapse the organization because it will be hit by a wave of sexual abuse lawsuits.

“I don’t think there is any father who was thinking clearly who would put his son in proximity to an adult homosexual,” Fischer declared. “No right-thinking, clear-thinking father would do that.”

Fischer said that while not all gay scoutmasters will abuse children, “a father and his vulnerable son might not find out which homosexuals they should have been concerned about until it’s too late.”

“I would say to fathers in this listening audience, you don’t have a moment to lose,” he said. “Protecting the sexual integrity of your sons is just too important. Time to flee the Boy Scouts of America.”

Fischer previously said that lifting the ban on adult gay members of the Boy Scouts would turn the organization into “Gay Pedophiles Scouting For Boys.”


Fischer: The Media Ought To Be Asking Questions About John Kerry's Iranian-American Son-In-Law

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer raised questions about what sort of impact the fact that Secretary of State John Kerry's daughter is married to an Iranian-American man might have had on his ability to effectively negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran.

"Who knows what kind of impact that would have on John Kerry," Fischer said. "I think that's a legitimate question ... If you take an unpopular position on contemporary issue, it could cost you in terms of relationships with members of your own immediate and extended family. There may be a pretty severe price to pay and some people may say, 'Look, I don't want to take that chance, I don't want to take that position because I could have people in my own family turn on me, reject me and I don't want to take that risk.'"

If the media is going to cover the fact that Donald Trump's sons engage in big game hunting, Fischer said, then "they certainly ought to at least be raising questions about the fact that Kerry has an in-law who is Iranian."

Religious Right Hero Vladimir Putin Okays Polygamy, Sharia Law

Vladimir Putin has become a bona fide hero to American Religious Right activists, who see him as a conservative Christian counterweight to President Obama and his support for LGBT equality. Anti-gay activists, for instance, rallied around the Russian leader after the Kremlin approved a ban on speech dealing with “homosexual propaganda” to minors.

Evangelist Franklin Graham hailed Putin as a hero for taking “a stand to protect his nation’s children from the damaging effects of any gay and lesbian agenda” even as “America’s own morality has fallen so far on this issue”; Bryan Fischer called Putin a “lion of Christianity” and called upon U.S. lawmakers to adopt similar speech prohibitions; Matt Barber marveled that Putin was able to “out-Christian our once-Christian nation”; Sam Rohrer called Putin “the moral leader of the world”; Scott Lively lavished praise on Putin for “championing traditional marriage and Christian values”; and Rush Limbaugh applauded Putin for stopping “a full-frontal assault on what has always been considered normalcy.”

Officials with the World Congress of Families have lauded Putin as a savior of the entire world. The group  organized a meeting for conservative activists at the Kremlin, which also played host to Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage, who traveled to Russia to defend the country’s anti-LGBT crackdown in face of a Western “attempts to silence those of us who stand for the truth of marriage.”

Much of Putin’s anti-LGBT stance is part of a broader campaign to discredit the European Union, antagonizing nationalists to rise up against the EU and its support of progressive values like LGBT rights, and empower the Russian Orthodox Church.

U.S. Religious Right activists have prioritized their absolute contempt for the LGBT community above solidarity with Protestants in Russia, who have come under attack by the state and its allies in the Orthodox Church, which views evangelicals as heretics. Protestants in the occupied area of eastern Ukraine have faced violent attacks from Putin-backed forces.

Seeing that American conservatives are more than happy to ignore Putin’s campaign against Protestantism since he is, after all, the defender of traditional marriage against gay rights, it is more than likely that they will look the other way now that he is “potentially allowing — or at the very least turning a blind eye to — polygamy among Russia’s estimated 16 million Muslims.” 

Julia Ioffe explained in Foreign Policy last week that the Russian government allowed for a friend of Chechnya’s leader to take a second wife in a case that received widespread attention in the country.

As Ioffe writes, “Christian warrior Vladimir Putin” has allowed for the Chechen government to enforce Islamic religious law within its boundaries. Putin’s decision to allow Chechnya to become “a small Islamic state within the borders of the Russian Federation” has paved the way for the legalization of polygamy.

Ioffe points to a case where a teenage girl was married to a 57-year-old police chief who was already married at the time in an arrangement that had all the appearances of a forced marriage. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who, like Putin, has a notorious human rights record, made sure that the wedding took place and even appeared at the reception.

One of polygamy’s noted defenders ended up being the country’s foremost supporter of the “homosexual propaganda” law: Yelena Mizulina. Ioffe writes:

[W]hen a lone member of the parliament proposed a law criminalizing polygamy, the initiative was duly shot down by Yelena Mizulina, the parliamentarian who was among the most vocal supporters of Russia’s anti-gay laws and other “traditional values” initiatives. Criminalizing polygamy, Mizulina said, was “absurd.” The reason for polygamy, she argued was that “there are not enough men, the kind with whom women would want to start a family and have children.” Last week, Mizulina was promoted to the upper chamber of parliament.

Mizulina authored the ban on “homosexual propaganda” and pushed through a law “banning the adoption of Russian orphans by gay couples, unmarried couples and single people in countries where same-sex marriage is legal.”

Putin’s “ombudsman for children’s rights — who was behind Russia’s ban on American adoptions,” Ioffe adds, justified the wedding by claiming that “in the North Caucasus, puberty hits earlier, so 16 was a great age for marrying. ‘There are places where women shrivel up by 27,’ he said.”

The Religious Right’s support for Putin, an authoritarian leader who has infringed on basic liberties and the democratic process, undermined the freedom of religion, particularly for Protestants, and allowed for the creation of a Sharia law enclave where polygamy is legal, once again proves that for a certain segment of American conservatives, everything comes down to opposing homosexuality.

Fischer: Obama 'Rude' To Criticize Laws Criminalizing Homosexuality

On Friday, Bryan Fischer blasted President Obama ahead of his trip to Kenya over reports that Obama would use the trip as an opportunity to criticize the country's laws that make homosexuality a crime punishable by up to 14 years imprisonment. Over the weekend, Obama did exactly that, but his criticism was promptly dismissed by Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, and now Fischer is outraged that Obama was so "rude" and is heaping praise upon African nations that maintain harsh anti-gay laws.

African leaders, Fischer said on his radio program today, know that "there is something abnormal, there is something immoral, there is something unhealthy, there is something unnatural about homosexual behavior" because the continent has been ravaged by AIDS.

"These political leaders know what homosexual behavior does," he said, and they "want something better for the African people than what homosexual conduct give them."

These leaders do not need someone like Obama lecturing them, Fischer continued, because they "are more enlightened" than the United State on this issue.

"We are smart enough, we are bright enough, we are intelligent enough, we are sane enough to make this kind of behavior contrary to public policy," Fischer said, as he approvingly laid out what he believes the correct African position on this issue to be. "We're not going to embrace it, we're not going to promote it, we're not even going to make it legal."

Nevertheless, President Obama went to Kenya and criticized laws criminalizing homosexuality which, Fischer said, "in my mind just makes him rude."

Fischer: Louisiana Movie Theater Shooter 'Was A Big-Time Barack Obama Supporter'

Last Thursday, a man named John Russell Houser opened fire in a Louisiana movie theater, killing two people and injuring nine others before killing himself. The following day, Bryan Fischer discussed the shooting on his radio program, where he falsely claimed that Houser "was a big-time Barack Obama supporter."

"Last night we had this shooting in Lafayette, Louisiana," Fischer said on his Friday radio show. "The media was ready to go crazy on this guy. He claimed to be affiliated with the Tea Party Nation, then they found out he filled out a profile in 2013 but he never gave, he never donated anything, he never participated, he never contributed anything, there's no picture of him, nobody has ever met him in a Tea Party group. So that all fizzled out. And then it turns out that he supported Barack Obama. He was a big-time Barack Obama supporter, voted for him in 2012, so all of the air has gone out of that balloon":

Of course, anyone willing to do two minutes of basic research would have quickly learned that Fischer's representation of Houser's views is entirely false, as Houser was a right-wing extremist who reportedly "hated taxes, liberals, newspapers, gays and the United States," and who was a regular ultra-conservative commentator on local Georgia political programs where he was well-known as a "radical Republican."

Houser claims to have voted for President Obama in 2012 only because he believed that Obama would hasten America's destruction:

Some conservative outlets are claiming that the gunman who killed two women after opening fire inside a crowded movie theater in Lafayette, Louisiana was a supporter of President Barack Obama.

The claim is based on a portion of John Russell Houser’s writings from 2013, in which he compared the president to Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.

In the writings, which has been described as a manifesto, Houser said the United States was in a downward spiral and that the country was too late to save. The outspoken conservative said the future of the United States “will be worse than a Mad Max” and that Obama was hastening the country’s decline — which was something he viewed positively.

The confusion arose because Houser wrote “I was for his re-election.” In context, however, it is clear the gunman does not think highly of the president.

“Here is something that is truly funny: since I accepted this it came to me that the president is doing exactly what Tim McVeigh did,only the president is much more effective,” he wrote. “The way I see it,the faster he wrecks this nation, which in no way resembles what it’s founders envisioned,the faster working people with morals may re-assume I was for his re-election. I like his spending habits.etc”

He added: “Encourage whatever takes us forward. Right now, down is forward.”

Fischer, of course, didn't bother to share any of this information with his listening audience because providing them with the actual facts would only have undermined his effort to blame the shooting on "a big-time Barack Obama supporter."

Fischer: Obama's Legacy Will Be 'The Exportation Of Sexual Deviancy'

President Obama is currently in Kenya and local anti-gay activists and pastors are warning him not to criticize the country's laws banning homosexuality, which can carry up to a 14-year prison sentence.

Unsurprisingly, Bryan Fischer is likewise outraged that Obama might dare to criticize the criminalization of homosexuality in the country, lamenting on his radio program today that homosexuality is no longer illegal in the United States and blasting Obama for having "done more to export sexual deviancy than any American in the history of the republic."

"President Obama's legacy is going to be that he has done more to export sexual deviancy than any American in the history of the republic," Fischer said. "That's going to be his legacy. This will be the man that exported sexual deviancy, that made the exportation of sexual deviancy the most dangerous product that the United States ever shipped overseas is going to be President Obama's legacy."

Right Wing Round-Up - 7/22/15

Putting Bryan Fischer's Absurd 'The Confederate Flag Is A Democratic Issue' Theory To The Test

Yesterday afternoon, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley signed a law removing the Confederate flag from the State House grounds, so naturally Bryan Fischer used the news to reiterate his absurd theory that the racist symbolism and history of the flag is really "a Democratic issue."

Fischer, whose knowledge of American history apparently doesn't include anything that has happened since 1965, spent a segment on his radio program yesterday insisting that Republicans in South Carolina should have refused to even vote on the removal of the flag because "this is a Democratic Party icon" and evidence that Democrats "have been horrible racists from day one" and that the party's past is "so black, and so bad, and so dark, and so tinged with racism" that Democrats must now remove it in an effort to cover up the party's sordid history.

Fischer's attempt to hang the issue of the Confederate flag on the modern Democratic Party is so laughable that we decided to conduct a simple test and take a look at all of the members of the South Carolina legislature who voted against the bill to remove the flag from outside the capitol. There were three in the state Senate and 20 in the state House.

See if you notice any pattern:

  • Mark Shepard declares that "those who mock the very creation of man, by openly parading unnatural, destructive, unbounded sexuality in streets, legislative bodies and courts, have stolen that very symbol and use it to represent defiance against God."
  • Dan Delzell says that "it is ironic, and yes even tragic, that President Obama would choose to light the White House with a rainbow after the recent Supreme Court decision. It was his loud and proud way of celebrating the sin of same-sex marriage. Obviously, the president doesn't seem to believe that the Old Testament stories of Noah's Ark and Sodom and Gomorrah were actual events in history."
  • Bart Barber warns that "the advocates for the sexual revolution are quickly taking us back to first-century Rome."
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer once again says that people speaking languages other than English in America is a sign of God's judgment: "God may not need to judge America by confusing our language. We're doing a pretty good job of that all by ourselves. Or perhaps, this is the way a sovereign God is bringing his judgment on a land that has turned its back on him."

Bryan Fischer Once Again Calls For Enacting Russian-Style Anti-Gay 'Propaganda' Laws In America

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer once again called for America to implement Russian-style anti-gay "propaganda" laws and to ban the formation of gay-straight alliance clubs in high schools.

Just as advertising cigarettes to children is illegal, Fischer said, so too should we ban the spread of gay "propaganda."

"We ought to be doing exactly the same thing with homosexuality," he said. "That's what Russia is doing. You can't propagandize youth in Russia because they don't want the youth of Russia to grow up thinking this is a normal alternative to heterosexuality. And homosexuality is not even against the law in Russia, just like smoking is not against the law in America but we do the same thing; we do not allow the propagandizing of America's young to think that there is something glamorous and exciting and healthy about cigarette smoking."

"If we're going to be concerned across the board about human health, then we ought to have exactly the same concern for people that are considering going into the homosexual lifestyle," he continued. "Let's talk them out of it. Let's persuade them against it. Let's refuse to allow our young people to be propagandized in preschool, in kindergarten, in elementary school into thinking this behavior is normal. In teenagers, let's not let them be propagandized, let's not have gay-straight alliance clubs on our high school campuses."

Bryan Fischer's Amazing Inability To Abide By His Own Theory About The First Amendment

As we have noted several times before, Bryan Fischer has an utterly incoherent understanding of the First Amendment, insisting that it only applies to Congress whenever he wants to defend some possible establishment of religion violation but insisting that it applies to everyone when he wants to complain about some possible violation of its free exercise clause.

This basic contradiction popped up once again in his latest column in which he warns that Christians are becoming "the new Dred Scott" due to the recent Supreme Court ruling striking down state gay marriage bans. Citing cases involving Christian bakers who refused to provide wedding cakes to gay customers and the false claim that one of the bakeries had been slapped with a gag order, Fischer claims that their First Amendment rights are being violated (emphasis added):

Readers are by now familiar with Aaron and Melissa Klein, who were fined $135,000 by a bureaucrat (no trial by jury, no judge, no right to confront accusers in open court, etc.) for politely declining to violate their own Christian conscience in the conduct of their business.

To add constitutional insult to constitutional injury, this bureaucrat slapped a gag order on the Kleins so they are not allowed even to talk to anybody about this travesty. Their right to the free exercise of religion, gone. Their right to free speech, gone. Their right to free association, gone.

In other words, this bureaucrat just issued a binding decree that the First Amendment applies to everybody in America except Christians. Christians, according to this man, have no First Amendment rights of any kind.

A baker in Colorado, Jack Phillips, is going to court today for similarly declining to use his expressive gifts to bake a cake which included a message of support for same-sex marriage. For his effrontery, having the nerve to actually believe the First Amendment applied to him, he too has been fined, ordered to bake cakes that violate his conscience, sent to re-education camp, and ordered to provide quarterly “compliance reports” to show that he is sufficiently servile to the lords of political correctness.

As we have pointed out before, it is Fischer who insists that "violating the First Amendment is something only Congress can do." Needless to say, neither of these cases has anything to do with Congress so, by Fischer's own logic, nobody's First Amendment rights are being violated since that "is something only Congress can do."

How Fischer repeatedly fails to understand the basic fact that he cannot claim that the First Amendment can only be violated by Congress and then turn around and also complain that the First Amendment is being violated by things that are not Congress is beyond comprehension.

Fischer: Christians 'Are The New Dred Scott' Thanks To SCOTUS Gay Marriage Ruling

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer followed up his warning from last week that Christians will now be banned from holding public office in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide to declare that, in fact, Christians will now be stripped of all of their rights because "we are the new Dred Scott."

"Ladies and gentlemen, I want to suggest to you and state this flatly, we as Christians, we are the new Dred Scott," Fischer declared, "and liberals are the new [Supreme Court Justice] Roger Taney. Because the view of liberals is that the Christian man has no rights that the liberal man is bound to respect."

"So, ladies and gentlemen, we are the new Dred Scott," he said. "Liberals are the new Roger Taney."

Fischer: 'The Day Is Coming When It Will Be Against The Law For Christians To Hold Public Office'

On his radio broadcast last Thursday, Bryan Fischer warned that, thanks to the Supreme Court decision striking down state bans on gay marriage, Christians will now be prohibited from ever serving in public office.

"You may think that I am exaggerating, that I am hyperbolizing," Fischer declared, "I assure you, ladies and gentlemen, that I am not, that this is the direction that we are headed ... It is, before long, going to become illegal for Christians to hold public office."

"The day is coming when it will be against the law for Christians to hold public office," he continued. "It will be against the law for Christians to even run for public office [and Christians] will not be allowed to serve in any kind of appointed capacity in government."

"Now why do I say that?" Fischer asked. "I say that because of what the Supreme Court did on Friday" by legalizing gay marriage.

Fischer: 'The Supreme Court Just Gave The Muslim World Another Reason To Attack Us'

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer highlighted warnings from the FBI and Department of Homeland Security to law enforcement agencies all over the country to "be vigilant and prepared" for possible terrorist attacks over the July 4th holiday and cited them to declare that if any such attacks are carried out, the Supreme Court will be partially to blame for having angered radical Muslims by legalizing gay marriage.

Fischer, who fully believes that God will use ISIS to punish America for gay rights, claims that since "the Left" supposedly blamed anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller when Islamic radicals attacked one of her events back in May, then, by the same logic, the Supreme Court will also be to blame if Islamic terrorists attack the United States in the wake of the gay marriage ruling.

"How does the Muslim world justify their attacks on the United States?" Fischer asked. "Because they believe that we are the chief exporter of wickedness and decadence in the world. That’s why they call us 'the Great Satan.' When we insult their god, their religion, their prophet, or their values, they claim a divine sanction to punish us for our transgressions."

"The Left, interestingly enough, actually agrees with the Muslim world on this score," he continued, citing the Geller attack.

"What the Supreme Court did on Friday was to insult and offend the entire Muslim world by celebrating and gloating gushing over a sin that Muslims regard as so offensive to Allah that its practitioners must be thrown to their deaths," Fischer warned. "So the Supreme Court just gave the Muslim world another reason to attack us, and a terrorist attack appears imminent. So if Muslims attack us, and they refer in any way to our celebration of homosexuality as part of the reason, then according to liberals, culpability must be laid for that at the feet of the United States Supreme Court."

Fischer: SCOTUS Justice Leading Millions To Hell With Gay Marriage Ruling

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer warned the Supreme Court justices who struck down state bans on gay marriage last week that they will one day answer to God for having misled millions of Americans into Hell.

"On Friday, the Supreme Court made it easier for people to go to Hell," he said. "They now have some accountability before God because they have made it easier for people to reject the truth of the Scripture about eternal salvation. This is a serious and a sobering thing and the majority on the Supreme Court is going to need to answer for this one day."

"The Supreme Court jeopardized the eternal souls of millions of Americans on Friday by justifying the sin of homosexuality," he continued. "It communicated, I believe, an exceedingly dangerous message on Friday that homosexual marriage and homosexuality are not perversions to be renounced but a constitutional right or constitutional rights that are to be celebrated and promoted. So the court has moved millions of impressionable Americans one giant step further away from repentance and eternal life."
