Daniel Lapin Tells Liberty University There Is Nothing Wrong With Profiteering

I recently finished reading Princeton history professor Kevin M. Kruse's extremely interesting new book, "One Nation Under God: How Corporate America Invented Christian America," which explains that the Religious Right's claim that America is a Christian nation founded for Christian purposes was a trope first cooked up by right-wing industrialists and preachers back in the 1930s to fight against President Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal policies.

Bankrolled by business interests, a "Spiritual Mobilization" effort was organized in the late 1930s for the purpose of using religion to promote a right-wing, pro-business agenda that was, in many ways, the precursor to today's Religious Right.

I couldn't help but think of Kruse's book and this movement while watching Rabbi Daniel Lapin deliver remarks at Liberty University's convocation earlier this week, where he dedicated his entire speech to asserting that making money is a sign of God's approval because "making money means you are delivering value to another one of God’s children. You are caring for another child of God."

As such, Lapin was outraged by the "slandering of business" that manifests itself in the idea that wealthy people are "giving back to society" when they donate to charity because it implies that when they are making money, they are doing so by ripping people off.

Lapin even went so far as to defend "profiteering," which is a term generally applied to people who seek to make "an unreasonable profit especially on the sale of essential goods during times of emergency."

"Profit isn't plunder," Lapin argued, "it's good, it's evidence that you are pleasing God's other children. They make up a word like 'profiteering,' see 'profiteer' sounds like 'sneer' or 'jeer.' Somehow it's evil to make a profit. What does it mean? That you're charging too much? Well, let people go and buy it from somebody who will charge less, you'll go out of business."

Such phrases are dangerous, Lapin insisted, because they are part of an anti-capitalist effort to brainwash people into thinking "that it is impossible to make money honorably and in a godly fashion."

Glenn Beck Certain Satanist's Milk Protest Carried 'Ancient Ritualistic Evil' Significance

Over the weekend, members of the Satanic Temple's Detroit chapter showed up to counter anti-abortion protests outside of Planned Parenthood facilities, at one point dumping gallons of milk over the heads of participants. Glenn Beck took some time to analyze this milk protest on his radio show today, telling his audience that he was positive there was some hidden but extremely important spiritual significance to the act.

"I'll bet you there is an ancient Moloch ritual that includes using milk like that," Beck said. "I'll bet you that has significance ... I'll bet you there is an ancient ritualistic evil reason they used milk."

Beck was so confident about this, in fact, that he had his staff get in touch with Rabbi Daniel Lapin so that he could call into the program to confirm Beck’s suspicion. But while Lapin is generally a reliable source for validating and promoting the sort of quasi-spiritual nonsense that Beck loves, today he wasn't quite capable of meeting Beck's needs, despite his best efforts.

While telling Beck that his "instincts are, once again, spot on," Lapin basically spent the next several minutes just rambling incoherently about Occupy Wall Street, anal sex, and the fact that God "implanted in us a perverse and strange yearning to, in fact, seek death."

"The very first connection with life is the substance called milk," Lapin said, "so there is something rather brilliantly perverse about the Satanists choosing the substance. And I think whether they were consciously aware of this or not, I think everybody who reads about it gets a sort of sudden shock and thrill at seeing this bizarre juxtaposition where they're basically saying, 'Get out of here your pro-lifers, we want Planned Parenthood to continue dismembering tiny human beings' and the substance they use is exactly the substance that tiny human beings live on!"

Lapin: 'The State Religion Of Secular Fundamentalism' Seeks To Obliterate Christianity

Rabbi Daniel Lapin was among the speakers today at Ralph Reed's "Road To Majority Conference," where he declared that "secular fundamentalism" has become an "official state religion" and that, just like Islam, it is seeking to "obliterate" Christianity from American society.

"The only form of sex that the official state religion of secular fundamentalism despises is the sex described as ideal in God's book, the Bible," Lapin said. "All other forms of sex [are] highly desirable and indeed brave and courageous to practice, but what you and your spouse do, that's retrogressive and negative."

"It's exactly what the Muslim hoards did when they invaded Spain in the eighth century," he continued. "They obliterated every sign of Christianity and that's what the state religion of secular fundamentalism does as it conquers our society, works at obliterating the only hope this country has, which is a fervent, revived Christianity."

Hey Ladies, Do You Get Emotional During Your Period? Take Solace In Knowing It's Just A 'God-Given Sadness'

Last year, Glenn Beck totally freaked out over the release of the video for Nicki Minaj's song "Only," which he bizarrely claimed was a violation of the biblical command to keep kosher because it was mixing "graphic, awful sex with the images of death."

It turns out that this idea was something he had learned directly from his favorite right-wing rabbi, Daniel Lapin, who appeared on his radio program this morning to further expand upon this theory and enlighten Beck's audience to the fact that women get emotional during menstruation because they are sad about the loss of potential life.

After Beck brought up his concerns about society's tendency to mix images of sex with images of death, Lapin explained that this was exactly why God prohibited anyone from touching a woman for seven days during her monthly period in Leviticus 15, since sex represents life while a menstrual period represents death.

As Lapin put it, "the good Lord created men with an infinite capacity to produce seed at almost any age whereas he chose to create women with an absolute finite limited number of eggs. And so the loss of an egg every month, for any sensitive woman, is sad because it's one less opportunity for life. And so foolish and insensitive people say, 'Oh, it's just a hormonal imbalance,' it isn't; it's a genuine, authentic sadness which suffuses any sensitive woman at the loss of an egg."

Beck, of course, was blown away by this revelation.

"Wow, I've never thought of it that way," he said. "It is actually a God-given sadness."

Daniel Lapin: Liberals Want To Have Sex With Islamic Extremists

On Tuesday’s edition of the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” program, Religious Right activist and rabbi Daniel Lapin repeated his bizarre claim that liberals are sexually attracted to radical Islam. Lapin told FRC President Tony Perkins that there is a “sexual dimension” to liberals’ supposed love for Islamic extremism, claiming “effeminate” liberals are sexually attracted to the “masculinity” of Islamic fundamentalism and are experiencing “Stockholm Syndrome.”

“There are countless studies showing that feminine-type behavior produces an excess of estrogen in men and vice versa,” Lapin said. “Essentially, the left has fallen in love with the masculinity of Islam.”

He continued: “Today, after a 30- or 40-year epidemic of leftism that has swept its sordid stain across America, we’ve become much more feminized and we are attracted to the masculine strength and brutality of Islam. This is the girl in the high school being attracted to the bad, tough guy and that’s really what’s happening. There is no other way that I know of to explain this utterly irrational — and as soon as I said to myself that it’s irrational, I said, where else do you see irrational behavior? When people are sexually attracted you see irrational behavior. On a spiritual level, the feminized American left, show business, politicians, particularly academia, all the people who love Islam, when Christianity and Judaism are exactly the reverse.”

Or maybe the claim that liberals support Islamic extremism is a myth created by the far-right.

Daniel Lapin Blames 'Dark Pathology Of Liberalism' For Ferguson, Kristallnacht

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck interviewed Rabbi Daniel Lapin about the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, which Lapin said was motivated by the same beliefs responsible for Kristallnacht, the infamous Night of Broken Glass during which Nazi paramilitary forces ransacked, looted, and destroyed Jewish homes and business.

"When the dark pathology of liberalism, not so much a doctrine as a sick and twisted pathology, manages to strip Judeo-Christian belief out of American society, congratulations guys, welcome to Ferguson," Lapin said. "You succeeded."

When Beck then asserted that the people behind the protests in Ferguson are the same people who were behind Occupy Wall Street, Lapin readily agreed.

"Same people, same beliefs, same nihilism, same delight in destruction," he said. "You know, it's Kristallnacht in Germany":

Why Are 'Sexual Radicals' Accusing Poor Matt Barber, Rick Scarborough And Daniel Lapin of Being Anti-Gay?

In the latest installment of the right-wing victimhood saga, the Illinois-based World Congress of Families has released an open letter accusing “sexual radicals” of launching a “smear campaign” against them in advance of a planned conference in Melbourne later this week.

“Sexual radicals have launched a smear campaign to discredit the Melbourne conference, which misrepresents the international pro-family movement and the positions of the World Congress of Families,” the letter says. “Specifically, it is alleged that advocacy of the natural (or normative) family is somehow unfair to other families and that we ‘shame’ single-parent families, homosexual ‘couples’ and the divorced.” (Scare quotes in the original.)

"The goal of sexual radicals is to deconstruct marriage and marginalize the family, and thus to transform society into something unrecognizable to generations past," the letter continues. "Like all social experiments that attempt to create a 'new man,' these are doomed to failure."

Yes, who could accuse the signers of the letter of shaming LGBT people? Among the 80 signatories are such notable LGBT allies as Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber, who started his very own website to publish off-the-charts anti-gay vitriol; Rabbi Daniel Lapin, who has said that homosexuality is a form of “barbarism”; Russian World Congress of Families activists Alexei Komov and Pavel Parfentiev, who have cheered on their country’s new spate of anti-gay laws; and Rick Scarborough, who claims that AIDS is God’s punishment for homosexuality.

Also joining the defense of the World Congress of Families are the Family Research Council’s Patrick Fagan, the National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brown, former House majority leader Tom Delay, the Alliance Defending Freedom’s Benjamin Bull, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, along with a number of international allies of WCF.

Meanwhile, the Human Rights Campaign has just released a new report detailing WCF’s support for repressive anti-gay laws throughout the world.

Daniel Lapin Discusses How 'Feminine' Liberals 'Lay Themselves Down Before Masculine Strength' Of Islam

On Sunday, the Religious Right movement’s favorite rabbi, Daniel Lapin, devoted a segment of his weekly radio show to “liberalism’s love affair with Islam,” part of a running theme among right-wing activists about a purported alliance between progressives and radical Islamists. Lapin said that unlike conservatism, “liberalism is incredibly feminine” and as a result “loves [the] hard masculinity” found in Islam.

“If there is one thing that Islam has proven itself to be, certainly in recent years and even longer ago than that, it is very masculine, it is violent, it is aggressive, it is dominating and it is very firm and very confident and very sure of itself, all of these very masculine characteristics,” Lapin said.

“I believe that liberalism is drawn to it, I think liberals want to be seduced by Islam, I think liberals lay themselves down before masculine strength,” he said, continuing with the sexual analogy. “There is a reason that it is biologically impossible for a woman to rape a man, it can’t be done. And I do believe that a good deal of liberalism’s supine nature with respect to Islam, liberalism’s docility in the face of Islam, has to do with a deep desire to yield to strength.”

Pat Robertson Says Jews Are Too Busy Polishing Diamonds To Fix Their Cars

Conservative activist Daniel Lapin, the Religious Right’s favorite rabbi who was also tied to the Jack Abramoff corruption scandal, appeared today on the 700 Club to tell host Pat Robertson about his new book on the “ancient Jewish wisdom” of “making money.”

Robertson introduced Lapin by asking: “What is it about Jewish people that make them prosper financially? You almost never find Jews tinkering with their cars on the weekends or mowing their lawns. That’s what Daniel Lapin says and there’s a very good reason for that, and it lies within the business secrets of the Bible.”

Later in the interview, Robertson said that Jews are “polishing diamonds, not fixing cars.”

“When you correctly said in Jewish neighborhoods you do not find Jews lying under their cars on Sunday afternoons, no, I pay one of the best mechanics around to take care of my BMW, I’d be crazy to take my time doing it myself,” Lapin said. “Or for me to mow my lawn, I’m the worse lawnmower in the world, but the young man who lives down the street from me, he’s one of the best and he’s happy to do it and I’m happy.”

He added that paying for such services is all about “taking care of God’s other children.”

Lapin also repeated his claim that God doesn’t want people to retire, and commended Robertson for still hosting the 700 Club.

“There’s no Hebrew word for retirement; the general rule is when there’s no Hebrew word for something, it’s a bad idea. For instance, there’s no Hebrew word for adolescent, because when you think about it an adolescent is just somebody who wants all the privileges of adulthood with none of the responsibilities,” Lapin told Robertson. “No word for adolescent, no word for retire and I’m very happy that you’ve taken that lesson to heart.”

Robertson agreed that retirement is a violation of God’s law. Lapin added that there is also no Hebrew word for “fair.”

At the end of the interview, Lapin said that the United States has embraced a Marxist government that “turns people into slaves.”

Lapin: Marriage Equality Is A 'Flagrant Attempt' To 'Ultimately Obliterate Christianity'

Stu Burguiere sat in for Glenn Beck on last night's television program where he interviewed Rabbi Daniel Lapin ostensibly about reports that a gay couple was going to sue the Church of England for the right to get married in the church.

Lapin said that instances like this, as well as the various cases that have occurred in the United States, are not about equal rights at all but rather are part of an all-out effort to destroy Judeo-Christian values and the Bible.

"This is a flagrant attempt to censor, undermine, and ultimately obliterate Christianity," Lapin said. "That's the purpose of this."

Lapin went on to say that words like "equality" and "fairness" are meaningless terms that are embraced by tyrannical governments in order to work up a docile population into destroying its own freedom:

What Exactly Is Glenn Beck's Definition Of 'Anti-Gay'?

Glenn Beck apparently lives in complete isolation from the world around him because there is no other way to explain how he can go about decrying the anti-gay fascism that is rising in Russia on his radio broadcast yesterday while simultaneously declaring that "I don't know anybody who is anti-gay, at least not any of my friends."

We have no idea what Beck's definition of "anti-gay" must be if it doesn't apply to the people that he surrounds himself with since, as we pointed out last week, his good friend Ken Hutcherson was probably best known for being a vehemently anti-gay activist who once called for a ban the promotion of homosexuality.

And let's not forget that Rabbi Daniel Lapin, whom has appeared on Beck's show numerous times, has said that "barbarism has sex in the canal through which dead, useless, waste material is excreted" and declared that people with AIDS should have been rounded-up and quarantined during the early days of the AIDS crisis.

And what about Beck's good friend David Barton, who has said that gay sex should be regulated by the government and asserted that it is a sign that a nation is going through a spiritual revival when it stops tolerating homosexuality. Barton has predicted that gay marriage will lead to people marrying dogs and horses and said that it doesn't matter what the Supreme Court rules, homosexuality ought to always remain illegal. Repeatedly declaring that homosexuality is "an aberration" that "violates the laws of nature," Barton has also proclaimed it to be "reprehensible" and "disgusting" and stated that science will never find a cure for AIDS because the disease is God's punishment for those who engage in "shameful sexual acts."

Barton also has close ties to rabidly anti-gay activist Scott Lively and even spoke at a fundraiser for Lively's group. Lively, of course, has been instrumental in spreading the Religious Right's anti-gay animus all over the world and took partial credit for the crackdown in Russia, declaring it to be "one of the proudest achievements of my career."

In fact, just about the entire Religious Right movement in America has praised Russia's anti-gay laws, admitting that the laws passed in Russia are exactly the sort of "public policy that we've been advocating."

Beck brings anti-gay activists on to his radio and television programs with shocking regularity and is close friends with several people who perfectly represent exactly what it means to be "anti-gay."

But Beck declares that he doesn't even know people who are anti-gay, which raises the question of just what his definition of the term could entail if none of his good friends meet it.

Lapin: The 'Twisted And Diseased Pathology' Of Liberalism Is Making America Like Nazi Germany

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck interviewed a special needs student who has been ruthlessly bullied by fellow students at her Plano, Texas high school.

Beck followed up that segment with an interview with Rabbi Daniel Lapin, where he asked Lapin what was happening to us as a nation that this sort of thing was becoming more and more common place. Lapin responded by declaring that America is "no longer one nation under God" and was being taken over by a secular socialist values system, the very sort that led to the Holocaust in Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia.

This evil agenda, Lapin said, is stripping people of their empathy by replacing God with the "twisted and diseased pathology" of secular fundamentalism and liberalism, causing them to do things that they would never do if they knew that God was watching over their shoulder:

Lapin: 'Singleness ... Tends To Give Us Tyranny In A Society'

On several occasions, Glenn Beck has made it clear that he does not share the Religious Right's panicked belief that marriage equality will destroy the nation and even stated that the push for equality is winning "because the principle of it is is right."

So it was a little odd that he handed over his television program last night to David Barton and Rabbi Daniel Lapin who spent the entire hour making the case that, in fact, marriage equality will destroy the nation and that government has no right to change God's definition of marriage.

While Barton claimed that the Founding Fathers all agreed that the government had no power or right to change anything that God had established, Lapin declared that "it is marriage that makes government possible."

"Singleness," Lapin added, "in other words, an obliteration of marriage, tends to give us tyranny in a society and, what's more, tyranny seems to stimulate a destruction and a pulverizing of marriage."

Right Wing Leftovers - 3/22/13

  • Glenn Beck calls Rabbi Daniel Lapin "David Barton on steroids," so that pretty much tells you all you need to know about Lapin.
  • Ohio's Republican Gov. John Kasich announced his support for civil unions ... and then immediately backtracked.
  • I cannot believe that we were denied the joys of a Gingrich-Santorum unity ticket!
  • "Family Research Council has taken a bold new action," by which it means launching a daily radio program hosted by Tony Perkins, for which it needs money, of course.
  • Finally, James Dobson says that "at times it seems as though our elected and appointed leaders are trying to destabilize the country."

Beck: 'It's All About Hidden Clues'

For Glenn Beck, nothing is ever what is seems and so when President Obama travels to Israel, it cannot be because that is just the sort of thing that presidents do, but rather because there is some nefarious agenda at work.

As Beck sees it, Obama already won the election and has no intention of changing any of his positions on issues pertaining to Israel or the region, so there is no reason for him to travel there ... but he did, and so there must be a hidden reason.

Beck found that hidden reason in a piece that suggests that Obama's visit there is designed to strengthen the Muslim Brotherhood and undermine Israel, as he and Rabbi Daniel Lapin agreed that the fact that Obama will not be speaking to the Knesset "conveys a message in terms of hidden clues throughout the Arab Street [that] Obama does not recognize the political and democratic legitimacy of the Israeli government":

Lapin: It is 'Anti-Social Behavior' for People to Choose Not to Have Children

Rabbi Daniel Lapin was the guest on "WallBuilders Live" today where he discussed "the health benefits of attending synagogues and churches." During the conversation with co-host Rick Green, Lapin made the case that God designed people to interact and thus social connections were integral to good health, which is why people ought to regularly attend religious services.

That prompted Green to complain that under President Obama's "socialized medicine," states where people frequently attend church and are therefore healthier will end up having to "foot the bill" for all the states where people don't attend church. 

That observation struck Lapin as quite insightful, who then offered his own bizarre theory that people who don't have children are "anti-social" because they are forcing other people's children to take care of them:

Green: If you are in a society and culture that has that connection and that places a high value on religion and affiliation there and you get the better health that results, it looks like now, the way that America is going with socialized medicine, those states that are like that are going to end up footing the bill for the states that choose the other path, which is less connection and less affiliation with religion and those things because they are going to have a higher health bill.  But now, with socialized medicine, we'll pay for it.

Lapin: Oh, absolutely.  And by the way, that is also true of Social Security.  It's all very well people choose not to have children; not only do they pay a health penalty for that but the truth is that your children and mine are going to have to pay for them. People say "it's not true, I have my investments to take care of me, I don't need children." Well, that may be true, however your investments depend on a growing market of customers because your investments are in company and what characterizes a profitable company is that it has customers; it's customer are my children.

Green: Yeah, that's a good point, I hadn't even thought about that. If you don't have children, first of all, they are not contributing to the overall marketplace but also the tax base and everything else.

Lapin: That is exactly right.  So I really do think that a claim of anti-social behavior can be lodged at the door of people who choose not to have children.

Lapin: God Does Not Want You to Ever Retire

Rabbi Daniel Lapin appeared on AFA's "Today's Issues" this morning where he made the case that people are never supposed to retire because the word "retirement" does not appear in the Bible.  In fact, it is because people retire that their health often deteriorates because they are basically saying to God that they are done serving people, and since that is the case, well "then who needs you"?

Anti-Gay Extremists Unite to Denounce US Embassy for Backing Czech LGBT Pride Festival

The US Embassy in the Czech Republic, as part of the State Department’s new LGBT rights initiative, is supporting a pride festival in Prague “to address discriminatory behavior based on sexual orientation and to promote a tolerant civil society and equal opportunities in the Czech Republic.” Already irate over Secretary Hillary Clinton’s speech on LGBT rights, American Religious Right activists joined their European, African and Latin American allies to denounce the Obama administration for “aggressively promoting the ‘gay’ agenda internationally” and leading a campaign of “cultural imperialism” [PDF]:

At the directive of the president of the United States, Washington is aggressively promoting the “gay’’ agenda internationally, including same-sex “marriage” and the stigmatization and marginalization of any who object to the same.

The Obama’s administration’s embrace of “same-sex marriage” has been overwhelmingly rejected by the American people. There have been 32 state referenda on marriage. In every one of them, voters endorsed the natural definition of marriage (a man and a woman). The North Carolina vote, on May 8, was 61% in favor of natural marriage.

It stands to reason, then, that anything which undermines the family – including changing the definition of marriage – is a breach of the State’s responsibility to protect this indispensable institution which precedes government and makes a stable and free society possible.

The Madrid Declaration of World Congress of Families VI (May 25-27, 2012) --which was unanimously adopted by more than 3,200 delegates from 72 countries --provides, in part: “We affirm the natural family to be the union of a man and a woman through marriage for the purposes of sharing love and joy, propagating children, providing their moral education, building a vital home economy, offering security in times of trouble, and binding the generations.”

Regarding “gay rights,” those caught up in this lifestyle have the same rights as other citizens. This does not include the “right” to force others to validate a lifestyle they find objectionable, for religious or other reasons. It also does not include the right of men to marry men and women to marry women.

The foregoing pseudo-rights do not advance human freedom and dignity but debase them.

We can not imagine a worse form of cultural imperialism than Washington trying to force approval of the “gay” agenda on societies with traditional values.

The list of signatories is mighty long, including former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay; Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Matt Barber; American Family Association’s Tim Wildmon; Catholic League’s Bill Donohue; Vision America’s Rick Scarborough; Rabbi Daniel Lapin; American Civil Rights Union’s Robert Knight; Concerned Women for America’s Janice Shaw Crouse; Pastor Jim Garlow; WND’s David Kupelian; TFP’s C. Preston Noell III; conservative activist Richard Viguerie; World Congress of Families’ Don Feder; Media Research Center’s Brent Bozell; Traditional Values Coalition’s Louis Sheldon and Andrea Lafferty; and the Southern Baptist Convention’s Paige Peterson.

Other activists like Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, Scott Lively of Defend the Family International and Sharon Slater of Family Watch International are also among the signatories, as is Mission America’s Linda Harvey, who believes people should refuse care for themselves and their children from openly gay doctors and nurses:

Another signatory was Yehuda Levin has claimed that gay marriage caused last year’s D.C. earthquake and linked gay rights to the 9/11 attacks, Hurricane Katrina, the Tsunami and the 2010 Haiti earthquake:

The list even included former chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt, who performs gay exorcisms:

Daniel Lapin joins Benny Hinn to 'Battle the Twin Forces of Islamic Fundamentalism and Intense Secularism' while Making Money

The Religious Right’s favorite rabbi Daniel Lapin visited Benny Hinn on This is Your Day to promote his new book, Thou Shall Prosper: Ten Commandments for Making Money. The partnership between Lapin and Hinn makes a lot of sense: Lapin was involved in disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s corruption scandal and Hinn’s Word-Faith ministry is corrupt to the core, using his cash-for-healings scheme to finance his lavish lifestyle.

Lapin told Hinn that God put him on this earth “to bring ancient Jewish wisdom secrets of making money to everybody” and that he attends churches not to make money but because “it’s where the people are”…the people he wants to buy his book. He went on to tell Hinn that he is determined to fight the “assault” waged on civilization “by the twin forces of Islamic fundamentalism and intense secularism.”

Lapin shouldn’t need to lecture Hinn about making money, as the owner of a $30 million Gulfstream jet who lives in a $10 million seaside mansion in Orange County, California, and extravagant hotel rooms around the world seems to be doing quite well for himself.


Lapin: I know that part of the purpose that I was put here for was to bring ancient Jewish wisdom secrets of making money to everybody.

Hinn: Can I ask you a question sir, why would an orthodox rabbi go to churches?

Lapin: To paraphrase Willie Sutton the bank robber, ‘that’s where the money is,’ in my case it’s not where the money is but it’s where the listeners are, it’s where the audience is, it’s where the people are.

Hinn: Oh really, so that’s why you do it.

Lapin: I believe that it is vitally important to bring the wisdom of the Torah to everybody; I believe that is what’s going to salvage civilization. I believe civilization is under assault right now by the twin forces of Islamic fundamentalism and intense secularism.

Dobson and Lapin Blame Feminism for Everything, Scold Bill Clinton and 'Womanizer' Newt Gingrich

Yesterday on Family Talk, James Dobson and Daniel Lapin came to the conclusion that ‘the pill’ paved the way for the destruction of civilization by increasing sexual promiscuity and reducing masculinity. Today, Dobson blamed Bill Clinton for the growing acceptance of “illicit sexuality” among politicians. Dobson, a prominent endorser of Rick Santorum, even lamented that the public isn’t having serious problems with supporting “an admitted womanizer,” Newt Gingrich. The Focus on the Family founder earlier claimed that he wouldn’t support Gingrich because he didn’t want the First Lady to be a former mistress.

Dobson: In the mid- to late-1990s, Bill Clinton, as president, had an affair with Monica Lewinsky. And the popular culture and the elites in media and in government rose to his defense and said that character really doesn’t matter, what matters is that a president is able to do his job properly, and the moral aspect was discounted. And something changed in our culture, not just about Bill Clinton, but about our attitudes toward our leaders being involved in illicit sexuality. And we’re seeing it right now on a number of fronts. I’m going to have to really come close to the limits here, but one of our candidates has been an admitted womanizer, and he has indicated, even to me, that he’s been forgive for that and that only God knows, and I accept that. But the attitude of the public toward that has changed. It is reflective of what happened in the 1990s.

Later in the program, Lapin argued that America is facing economic decline because of the removal of “religious restraints to rampant sexuality,” as men lose “self-discipline” and society is “effeminized.” Lapin then claimed that as “a more feminine society,” America has become more open to the “brutal and violent culture” of “fundamentalist Islam,” which he says is the only way “to explain the love affair that America’s leftwing and secularized elites have with Islam.”

So there you have it: feminism is responsible for the moral failings of men, economic decline and Islamic radicals.

Lapin: Once you remove the religious restraints to rampant sexuality, and all you got to do is relax those religious restraints and male nature will take care of the rest and bring about the decline of a civilization, one of the mechanisms is of course as we’ve discussed economic because in a sense it requires the same kind of control and self-discipline to get up every single morning and go to work whether you like it or not as it takes to restrain various appetites. So when you weaken one muscle you weaken everything else as well and not only do we have a tendency on the part of a society that has relaxed all form of sexual restraint to also go into free fall economically but what also happens is such a society tends towards becoming a more feminine society in a sense. Islam, fundamentalist Islam, which is essentially a brutal and violent culture is seducing a somewhat effeminized American culture because there is no other way to explain the love affair that America’s leftwing and secularized elites have with Islam.
