According to some news reports, Donald Trump has settled on Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his vice presidential running mate, though other reporters say their sources tell them the decision has not been finalized. Trump has said he will announce his decision on Friday morning.
Pence has a long record before becoming governor that includes time in nearly every branch of the country’s huge right-wing political infrastructure: He headed a state-level “free-market” think tank; had a career in talk radio; and served in Congress, where he led the right-wing Republican Study Committee.
That’s a lot of right-wingery that we and others will be exploring in depth if he is indeed Trump’s running mate. But here are a few initial points about Pence’s relationship with the Religious Right, whose leaders seem to be largely coming around to Trump’s candidacy despite initial skepticism.
Pence was unhappily in the national media last year when Indiana became embroiled in a high-profile controversy over a state “religious liberty” law pushed by anti-gay groups and signed by the governor. Pence seemed to have been caught completely off-guard when business and community leaders joined equality activists in a backlash to the law.
Pence tried to defend the law on national television, with disastrous results. Pence’s main problem is that he was essentially caught in a lie. He pretended the bill had nothing to do with legalizing anti-gay discrimination, when that was the clear purpose of the religious groups that pushed the law and gathered around him when he signed it.
It is not clear how warmly Religious Right leaders will embrace Pence as Trump’s running mate. Earlier this week, anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera responded to rumors about Pence as VP by tweeting, “HOW ironic it wld be if Mike Pence ever became VP. Pence declined to run for president in part b/c he FAILED conservatives on relig liberty.”
Others may be more forgiving given Pence’s long track record, and may rationalize that his heart was in the right place but he was forced to back down when business leaders and the LGBT lobby — twin enemies of the Religious Right these days — ganged up on him.
Last Tuesday on the “Jesse Lee Peterson Radio Show,” Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality told guest host and fellow anti-gay activist Matt Barber that the gay rights movement is “a liberal cult,” “an anti-God movement” and a “sin movement.”
Barber argued that with African-American leaders’ acceptance of gay rights, “secular socialism” has “infested the black community.”
“The blacks are a noble people, certainly, and there are many … Bible-believing Christians who are offended and disgusted by these illegitimate comparisons between mutable, changeable, deviant behaviors, homosexual behavior, and immutable, neutral characteristics such as skin color,” Barber said. He claimed that “black leaders have completely sold out to the radical LGBT lobby and are complicit in making these illegitimate comparisons.”
“Yeah, the sellouts keep growing, Matt,” LaBarbera said. “You know, I sort of see this as a liberal cult, this homosexual revolution. Everybody’s joining it who, you know, who’s basically gotten rid of their Christian understanding of the world. They’ve just rejected God. It’s an anti-God movement. When you would purport to redefine humanity, redefine the rules of humanity, and let’s, you know, people are talking about the transgender issue now, but let’s remember the gay revolution started with transgenders. It was drag queens at that Stonewall bar who started throwing bottles and such at the police. And so we’re in a cult here, it’s a liberal cult, and a lot of corporate America has bent the knee, and many, many people, I think you once said, Matt, you think over half the evangelical Christians will accommodate themselves to this sin movement, and I fear you’re right.”
Colorado Republican state lawmaker Gordon Klingenschmitt was joined by his fellow anti-gay Religious Right activist Peter LaBarbera on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program recently, where the two decried the Obama administration's guidelines for public schools on how to protect the rights of transgender students, which LaBarbera said are just further proof of Obama's promotion of "moral evil."
"Obama never really let the Constitution get in his way," he said, "as we saw with his systematic destruction of the definition of marriage, Chaps. He's all about the homosexual agenda and now we have actual very strong evidence that that's the number-one agenda item for Barack Obama."
"For whatever reason, Barack Obama has chosen the promotion of homosexualism and transexualism now as one of his major achievements," LaBarbera continued. "This is really the president that has promoted in this area the greatest moral evil by far of any president of the United States."
Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality joined Religious Right activist Penna Dexter on her “Point of View” radio show on Wednesday, where he claimed transgenderism is deviant and abhorrent and that government support for LGBT rights will lead to the “downfall” of America.
LaBarbera said that in backing LGBT rights, the Obama administration is supporting “the gender-confused” and is “mainstreaming deviance.” “Rather than protecting people and guiding them to the social good, you are instead catering and pandering and incentivizing effective abhorrence,” LaBarbera said.
He continued, “It’s one thing if a person struggles with something, and our hearts as believers, as Christians, they go out, the people who are struggling with any sin problem or any confusion, we want to help them.”
“When it comes to the point of government then saying ‘We will reward misidentification, we will turn it into a civil right,’ thereby insulting every black American in our history by comparing gender confusion-based rights and homosexuality-based rights to real civil rights,” he said, “when it gets to that point you’re really incentivizing confusion and you’re bringing about the downfall of your country.”
Peter LaBarbera says that "now the Sexual Left–having legally destroyed the meaning of marriage with the eager help of the U.S. Supreme Court–has moved on to 'mainstreaming' and mandating accommodation for (trans)gender rebels–think men with fake boobs and a penis invading female restrooms; sadomasochism; men becoming human 'dogs'; and 'polyamory' (anti-fidelity). As for pedophilia, that lobby is still gearing up–mimicking the successful, manipulative tactics of the 'gay liberation' movement by portraying themselves as the aggrieved 'victims' of an inconvenient 'orientation.'"
Michael Brown calls upon Donald Trump to humble himself and admit to his mistakes. Good luck with that.
Anne Graham Lotz, who believes that the return of Jesus is imminent, says that God may be keeping her father, Billy Graham, alive so that he can witness it.
Linda Harvey declares that "bathrooms should continue to be safe places to perform necessary functions, not proving grounds for depraved identities."
Finally, David Whitney says that "new neckwear is being prepared for Obama in light of his administration’s actions" on transgender rights, citing Matthew 18, which says that "whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea."
David Barton, of all people, complains that Donald Trump "will come out with some egregious, outrageous claim, and no one ever requires him to prove it." We have the samecomplaint about Barton.
Pamela Geller defends David Horowitz's "renegade Jew" article: "It's revealing how weak, spineless Jews go off when a proud Jew calls out them out."
Phil Robertson wants to be Donald Trump's "spiritual adviser."
A federal judge has "ordered Kansas to register thousands of voters whose paperwork is on hold because they did not comply with" a restrictive proof-of-citizenship law developed by Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
Finally, Peter LaBarbera says that the Equality Act should really be called the Criminalizing Christianity Act "because that's exactly what it would do. It would be a massive sledgehammer for the federal government and homosexual lawyers to come against small businesses, or anybody who comes out against homosexual so-called marriage, or transgender bathrooms, or other aspects of the gay and transgender agenda."
In response to a Twitter campaign urging Disney to “give Elsa a girlfriend” in the sequel to the popular children’s movie “Frozen,” the social conservative group CitizenGo is circulating its own petition demanding that Disney “follow its normal trend and create a Prince character to fall in love” with the movie’s heroine.
In an email to CitizenGo members yesterday, Gregory Mertz wrote that the prospect of Elsa being a lesbian was “frightening” and urged members to tweet with the hashtag #CharmingPrinceForElsa:
Disney is facing fierce pressure from liberal groups who are demanding their writers turn Queen Elsa into a lesbian during the sequel, “Frozen 2.”
Please join the 37,000 who’ve already signed our petition against thisabsurd “movement.”
With our petition, we’re suggesting Disney with a much better idea… An idea that promotes solid family values to our children and represents the natural family.
Join the 37,000 -- sign our petition, now, to Disney asking that Elsa fall in love with a Prince. #CharmingPrinceForElsa:
Queen Elsa a Lesbian?Thinking about our children, this idea is frightening.
“We call on Disney to follow its normal trend and create a Prince character to fall in love with Queen Elsa,” reads CitizenGo’s petition, which has gathered 65,000 signatures.
“We ask that Disney find a nice and loving Prince for Queen Elsa to fall in love with,” it demands.
Treating the situation even less calmly, predictably, was far-right pastor Kevin Swanson, the extremist pastor who attracted national attention last year when he hosted a conference that was attended by three Republican presidential candidates. (At the conference, one speaker said the song “Let It Go” from “Frozen” was “Satan’s rebellion anthem.”)
“Anybody who has the guts to stand up against the homosexualizing of kids in the present day will be shamed for it,” he said, “and that means that the homosexualizing of kids will be, I think, wholesale happening across this country in the next two, three, four, five, 10 years. Of course Elsa is going to get her girlfriend eventually. That’s the way you destroy sexuality. That’s the way you destroy an entire civilization. The entire social system of the United States of America is collapsing.”
“You have got to be sure that you have homosexualized four-year-olds and six-year-olds and eight-year-olds and ten-year-olds in order to destroy a civilization,” he added, “because the destruction of a civilization happens over two or three or maybe four generations max. In order to bring a civilization down, you’ve got to homosexualize the kids.”
Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality is also displeased with the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend campaign, telling the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow today that it shows “the LGBT activists will use any vehicle they can to indoctrinate children.”
Janet Porter is asking for Christians to fast and pray before the Ohio primary tomorrow in which she is running for a seat in the state senate.
Second Amendment zealot Jan Morgan has withdrawn her endorsement of Ted Cruz because "his decision to blame Trump for the violence and actions of paid, liberal thugs/ protestors in Chicago is unconscionable."
Speaking of Cruz, he is bravely taking a stand and will not support Trump as the GOP nominee in the general election, but only if Trump happens to shoot somebody.
Jesse Lee Peterson says that Trump is "uniquely able to unite America" because "this is a man’s game. The other Republicans are playing it like women – and losing."
Finally, Peter LaBarbera is outraged at the Kiss Cam: "I saw — I think it was a hockey game — where they had the kissing cam, and it was two guys kissing. And our kids are there. Do we want our sons and daughters to think it's okay for two people of the same sex to kiss? It's not okay! It's immoral! It's wrong!"
Extremist anti-gay activist Theodore Shoebat has been locked in a battle of words with other anti-gay activists for several months, ever since Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality reportedly tried to have footage of Shoebat removed from an anti-gay documentary because of his radical views.
Shoebat was featured in Janet Porter's "Light Wins" film last year, along with a variety of anti-gay activists and several Republican presidential hopefuls and members of Congress. Once we began to post clips of Shoebat openly calling for a global Inquisition that would put all gays to death, LaBarbera reportedly sought to have Shoebat removed from Porter's film, which eventually led to Shoebat attacking LaBarbera as a "filthy pig" and a "traitor."
This did not sit well with Shoebat's father, Walid, a supposed "ex-terrorist" who posted a furious screed on his website attacking LaBarbera, Brown, Matt Barber and anyone else who has dared to criticize his son's extremist views, accusing them of worshiping gay blogger Joe Jervis of Joe.My.God instead of the one true God:
So how much will the Evangelical movement in the United States go to please the LGBT agenda?
When Shoebat.com posted this video on four homosexual wrestlers who raped two boys calling for a death penalty for these rapists, it upset one blaspheming homosexual and Right Wing Watch. These taunted the Evangelical movement causing an uproar with top level leaders calling on them to denounce Shoebat.com. They quickly lined up to show their support and denounced Shoebat.com for calling for the “death penalty” for gay rapists.
Several Evangelical leaders began hurling denunciations and articles against our infamous Theodore Shoebat for his views calling for the death penalty for rapists and child molesters.
According to these Evangelical leaders, calling for the death penalty for gay rapists, gay child molesters is ‘unchristian’. The heavyweights from Calvinist John Piper to Dr. Michael Brown, Peter LaBarbera (1), Matt Barber and others were irate at Theodore’s remarks.
Who controls these leaders? One major gay activist who wraps Evangelical scholars around his finger gives himself the blasphemous title as “Joe My God,” so that when they twitter him they would blaspheme calling him “My God” instead of Christ. The trick stems from when Caesar wanted the Christian world to address him as kyrios (My lord) which St. Paul denounced by stating “that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord” (Philippians 2:11), that is that Christ is Kyrios not Caesar.
But now, this sodomite blasphemer, Joe, has become their god instead.
To please Joe the Blasphemer they go as far as lining up to denounce the young Shoebat for calling for the death penalty to even twisting arms to scrub and edit out Theodore’s contribution in an anti-gay documentary.
Shoebat even went on to defend his son's assertion that Jesus would kill gays, arguing that it was Christ who carried out the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah:
Did Jesus kill gays? Nothing was ever said in this silly half-baked article that in the Bible it is as clear as the sun, Jesus killed the sodomites. Most modern theologians intentionally overlook and refuse to disclose that some of the best passages of scripture ever used regarding the Trinity and the Theophany is within the context when Christ completely annihilated the sodomites.
Anyone who denies this ask them: was it Christ Who met with Abraham and announced the destruction of Sodom? In Genesis Abraham is visited by three figures, one of whom he refers to as “My Lord” (Genesis 18:3), and Who Scripture calls “the LORD” (Genesis 18:17).
No sane theologian would argue that this person wasn’t Christ. After much feasting, Christ and the other two men left Abraham to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah (see Genesis 18:21-22). Christ even referred to His meeting with Abraham in the New Testament when He said:“Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad” (John 8:56, also see St. Gregory as recorded by St. Aquinas, Catena Aurea). It was so clear in scripture that it was Christ Who killed ‘the gays.’
Peter LaBarbera denounces Theodore Shoebat's statement that Jesus would kill gays after Shoebat called LaBarbera a "filthy pig" a few weeks ago.
E.W. Jackson has a plan to get evangelicals to vote by mobilizing pastors. Gee, that is original.
"Coach" Dave Daubenmire says that "America is being controlled by perverted thoughts being promoted by perverted people. Perverted sense has replaced common sense."
Just what America needs: "Today CRTV announced the launch of LevinTV, hosted by one of the nation’s most compelling, passionate and thoughtful Conservative voices, Mark Levin."
It's amusing to see FRC's Tony Perkins try to pretend there is something deeply honorable about blindly blocking anyone President Obama nominates to replace Antonin Scalia: "As I talk with GOP members of the Senate, I’m encouraged to hear that most are ready to stand against the political bullying of Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). It won’t be easy, but there’s no greater way to honor Justice Scalia’s legacy than showing the same tenacity that characterized it."
Finaly, FRC prays for the pastor convicted of helping "ex-gay" Lisa Miller kidnap her daughter and flee the country: "May God strongly support Pastor Miller, Lisa and young Isabella, who have embraced prison and exile rather than violate their faith and conscience ... Pray, too, for the sexually confused people, the judges, politicians and voters who have imposed this confusion upon our youth and nation."
Bryan Fischer invited Peter LaBarbera on to his radio program today so that LaBarbera could share his "research" on which of the GOP presidential candidates are insufficiently anti-gay and therefore should not receive the support of conservative Christian voters this primary season.
Donald Trump was at the top of the list, LaBarbera explained, because he once attended a gay wedding and called it "beautiful."
"Trump went to a so-called gay wedding himself of a friend in New York," LaBarbera said, "and he was quoted as saying, 'It was a beautiful thing.' Trump said that the gay wedding, so-called, that he went to between two men was a beautiful thing. And you have to ask yourself, Bryan, how many Christians ... would say that a homosexual so-called marriage is a beautiful thing?"
Fischer, of course, totally agreed.
"If you have a biblical worldview, you'd be grieved for them," he said. "You'd be grieved for what they're heading into, grieved for the way in which homosexual behavior separates them from God, the risks that it's putting them at, the risk that it's going to put children to if they're adopted into that household. So the proper response would not be joy, it would not be celebration; the proper Christian response would grief and sorrow over what these two people are doing to themselves and also to others."
Yesterday, anti-gay activists "Coach" Dave Daubenmire and Mike Heath began producing a daily "internet TV show" that is basically Heath and Daubenmire participating in a Google Hangout while railing against the "gay agenda."
On yesterday's inaugural broadcast, Daubenmire and Heath were joined by Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality and LaBarbera and Daubenmire spent a good deal of time discussing their respectivedistrust of the "establishment" pro-family groups and railed against what they see as the movement's unwillingness to truly fight against the acceptance of homosexuality.
This supposed reluctance to fight, LaBarbera explained, has resulted in things like the legalization of gay marriage, which, in turn, will result in public schools teaching young students how to engage in "safer gay sex" and "oral-anal sex."
That prompted Daubenmire to go off on a tangent about how, if a teenage boy asked to talk to his parents about an important issue, every parent would start praying that their son was not going to tell them that he is gay.
"If your son came to you and said, 'Hey, Dad, I need to talk with you and Mom about something really, really important,'" Daubenmire declared, "for that two hours that you're waiting for that meeting to come, Pete, how many parents would be saying, "Oh Lord, please let it be drugs; Lord, please let it be alcoholism; Oh Lord, please let it be that he got some girl pregnant.' How many parents say, 'Oh Lord please, don't let it be homosexuality'? That's the truth of it, isn't it Pete, that no parent wants to hear that? No parent wants to hear that, yet we teach it as normal in our public schools. It's unbelievable."
LaBarbera, of course, was in complete agreement.
"You're absolute right, Coach," he said. "Nobody is saying, 'Wow, I'm so glad I have a homosexual son."
Anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality was a guest on Janet Mefferd's radio program last week, where the two discussed the lawsuit that ultimately shut down the ex-gay "reparative" therapy group JONAH, which LaBarbera said is a sign that "gayria law" is taking over America.
After saying that faulting ex-gay organizations for failing to turn all gays straight is like blaming drug rehab clinics for the failure of patients to kick drugs, LaBarbera blamed the shuttering of JONAH on the rise of "gayria law."
"This effort to squelch dissent is just extraordinary," he said, "and I think it is really unique to the homosexual movement ... I'm calling it gayria law. We talk about sharia law, but I think the bigger danger right now in America is gayria law, it's this all-encompassing drive, this totalitarian drive to enforce gay power everywhere, and it's growing."
One of the reasons that we started regularly covering extremist right-wing activist Theodore Shoebat and his opencalls for gays to be put to death was because he was featured in Janet Porter's anti-gay documentary "Light Wins" along with Republican presidential candidates, members of Congress, and leading anti-gay activists.
That, of course, did not sit very well with Shoebat, who blasted LaBarbera in his latest video as a "filthy pig" and a "traitor" for refusing that stand by Shoebat and his calls to put gays to death.
"You betrayed Christ. You betrayed Christianity when you turned your back on me," Shoebat fumed, blasting LaBarbera for having acquiesced to the "sodomites" instead of "standing by me, a fellow Christian."
"You betrayed true Christianity," Shoebat said. "When God demands the death penalty for the sodomite, you go against God himself ... You are an enemy of Christ and all of you cowards, you superficial empty skeletons, you walking tombs, you soulless, superficial reprobates who call yourself Christians, you are false prophets. You are pigs! You are worse than pigs, you are lower than Sodom and Gomorrah because you deceive people. You portray yourself as promoters of family values and Christianity, but you're nothing but demonoids."
Janet Porter brags on her campaign website that she "is the Left-Wing's second 'most-watched' woman in America, according to Right Wing Watch."
Adding insult to injury, Mike Huckabee's former presidential campaign spokeswoman has now signed on with Ted Cruz.
Peter LaBarbera says that he "apologized on Trinidad & Tobago radio last week on behalf of pro-family Americans for the Obama Administration’s promotion of the 'radical homosexual and gender confusion agenda' in countries all over the world."
Ken Ham fumes that "America has lost any semblance of biblical thinking, and this is clearly showing up in the laws and regulations that are being established. Sinful behaviors are being applauded and protected in the courts, and those who choose to disagree with sinful lifestyles are being punished for refusing to condone or accommodate these choices."
Finally, Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission has released his annual list of the "Top Ten Anti-Christian Acts" of the previous year.
Gun Owners of America says that if President Obama takes an executive action on gun background checks, he’ll be "following in the footsteps of other despots, including China's Mao, Italy’s Mussolini and Germany’s Adolf Hitler."
Apparently it is okay for right-wing journalists to grill GOP presidential candidates about the nuances of their theological beliefs.
Lee Duigon warns that "leftist schemes for Utopia inevitably involve lots of barbed wire, machine gun towers, re-education—they like to call it 'sensitivity training'—and piles of dead bodies."
Finally, Bryan Fischer argues that Christians and Muslims do not worship the same God because "the God of the Bible has a Son. The god of Islam does not." That standard would also seemingly disqualify Jews and Christians from believing in the same God, would it not?
Harvey criticized the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, which she called “a huge fascist scheme to reward homosexual, this immoral behavior, and I can’t imagine how many hundreds of thousands of stories there are out there that we never hear about of people in the workplace whose views are silenced and feel like they work in a concentration camp.”
“Well yes, that’s what political correctness does,” LaBarbera said. “It forces people to be victimized at work.”
In a recent radio commentary, Harvey similarly vented her outrage that she can’t find anywhere to go Christmas shopping because “the big retailers” are “doing everything the homosexual movement wants them to do.”
Earlier this week, extremist anti-gay activist Scott Lively released his list of the "Top Ten Pro-Family Heroes of 2015," highlighting anti-gay activists "who showed courage under fire or whose words and actions gave special encouragement to our movement."
As the "2015 Pro-Family Hero of the Year," Lively rewarded Brian Camenker of MassResistance with a $500 donation and urged his supporters to financially support these other "worthy organizations" to "help them in their work":
1) 2015 Pro-Family Hero of the Year
Brian Camenker, MassResistance, for consistent dogged determination, effective activism, and optimism in the face of overwhelming opposition in the most homosexual-controlled state in the union.
2) Mat Staver, Liberty Counsel, for his bold, principled defiance of the United States Supreme Court in the Obergefell “gay marriage” ruling, and his defense of conscientious objector Kim Davis who refused to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals in Kentucky.
3) Janet Folger, Faith 2 Action, for her tenacious “Restrain the Judges” campaign, culminating in a press conference on the steps of the Supreme Court asking Congress to remove jurisdiction over “gay marriage” from the United States Supreme Court, and for her subsequent valiant efforts to force SCOTUS to reconsider its Obergefell decision.
4) Arthur Goldberg, Jews Offering New Alternatives for Healing (JONAH) for standing firm through a terrible lawsuit brought against JONAH by the Southern Poverty Law Center claiming that offering recovery to homosexuals amounted to consumer fraud under New Jersey law.
5) Peter LaBarbera, Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, for his consistently gracious and courageous cultural analysis, activism and journalism at great personal cost.
6) David Kupelian, WND.com, for his ongoing fearless publication of the truth and his newest book, “The Snapping of the American Mind.”
7) J. Matt Barber of Barbwire.com for establishing a wonderful new medium for Christian witness and defense of the truth.
8) Diane Gramley, American Family Association of PA, for her steady, persistent and unflappable defense of family values.
9) Dr. Michael Brown, Line of Fire Radio Ministry, for the encouragement he has provided to the movement with his fearless radio commentary and especially new book, Outlasting the Gay Revolution.
10) Dr. Don Welch: Center for Enriching Relationships, for being the first-named of three litigants against California’s SB1172 law preventing professional psychotherapists from helping gender identity confused adolescents who possess a biblical worldview.
In addition to these "heroes," Lively also provided a list of those who "deserve honorable mention" and one name, more than any other, jumped out at us:
Rev. Franklin Graham, for his many media appearances in which he courageously articulated the truth.
Robert Reilly, for his outstanding book, “Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior is Changing Everything.”
Anne Paulk, executive director of Restored Hope Network for pulling the remnants of Exodus International back together and moving forward with grace, energy and truth.
