FRC Spox: If SCOTUS Legalizes Gay Marriage 'It Will Result In Sexual Tyranny'

The Family Research Council's vice president for church ministries, Kenyn Cureton, opened yesterday's "Watchmen on the Wall" conference with a warning to pastors that if the Supreme Court strikes down gay marriage bans, then this nation will fall to "sexual tyranny."

"We're living in the midst of a rapidly escalating conflict in America today," Cureton said. "It's a war between light and darkness. It's a war between good and evil. It's a war between the God-given right to life and a culture of death. It's a war between biblical sexuality and the radical homosexual agenda. It's a war between our religious freedom and their desire to drive God out of government, Christ out of culture, and faith out of public life."

"If the Supreme Court rules gay marriage as the law of the land in all 50 states," he continued, "LGBT behavior will be elevated to a civil right and it will result in sexual tyranny that will trump our religious liberty. You mark it down":

FRC: People Dislike Columbus Because He Shared The Gospel With Those He Enslaved

The Family Research Council knows the real reason people criticize Christopher Columbus: It’s because he was a Christian! In fact, according to FRC Vice President Dr. Kenyn Cureton, Columbus was such a great Christian that he even shared the Gospel with the people he enslaved.

On “Washington Watch” yesterday, Cureton said that Columbus had good intentions since he was trying to find gold to fund a potential war with Muslims over control of Jerusalem and spread the Gospel to indigenous peoples.

He argued that Columbus only enslaved native peoples instead of killing them because he was a merciful leader (and he needed them to search for gold to help defeat the Muslims). He also said that Columbus defended the Arawaks from cannibals, a contested claim. Columbus also enslaved the Arawaks along with thousands of others.

“So he did do some things that weren’t right but his motives overall were, number one, to get gold to free Jerusalem but secondly to share the Gospel,” Cureton said. “He was very much motivated by his Christian faith and I think that is what is behind this effort to wipe his name out from history.”

Columbus’s supposed Christian paradise was so cruel that the Spanish government arrested him for his violent practices.

'In America's Darkest Hour ... God Stepped In To Save The Day': A History Lesson From FRC

Last night, the Family Research Council hosted an event at First Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina called "Star Spangled Sunday."

Billed as a celebration of 200th anniversary of the national anthem, the event featured speakers like Sen. Ted Cruz, Mike Huckbee, Rick Scarborough, E..W. Jackson and others and turned out to be primarily a promotional event for FRC's "123Vote.com" effort to register and mobilize Christian voters ahead of the midterm elections.

Kicking off the program was a video history lesson in which Kenyn Cureton, FRC's Vice President for Church Ministries, explained the many times that God directly intervened in order to establish and save America.

As Cureton explained, when the British burned Washington during the War of 1812, God sent torrential rains, and even a tornado, to put out the flames and kill the British troops.

"God brought a storm of biblical proportions to Washington," he said, "and unleashed it on those British invaders."

Time and again, "God providentially intervened" in American history to protect this nation, Cureton said, and He will do so again if only this nation will turn back to Him ... by which he presumably means "register and vote for Republicans":

FRC Partners with Church that Urged Members to ‘Actively Pray and Work for the Defeat of Barack Obama’

FRC president Tony Perkins and vice presidents Jerry Boykin and Kenyn Cureton are heading to Catalina Foothills Church in Tucson, Arizona for “Recapture America.” Cosponsors include the Center for Arizona Policy, the Alliance Defending Freedom (formerly the Alliance Defense Fund) and the church’s Christian Impact Committee. Recently the church claimed [PDF] that Obama is pushing a “reprioritization in human rights policy in favor of the advancement of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights” that is contributing to a “global crisis in religious liberty” and likened Obama to Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong and Saddam Hussein.

During his Sunday sermon, Rev. Allen Cooney called on members of the church to “actively pray and work for the defeat of Barack Obama” in the upcoming election as he is an “enemy” of Christianity and religious freedom.

Of course that shouldn’t be a surprise as Perkins believes it is a sin for a Christian to vote for Obama and Boykin thinks Obama is using health care reform to create a personal Brownshirt army.
