'They Hate God And Want To Let The Sodomites Queer Our Country'

Shortly after the Supreme Court issued its ruling in favor of marriage equality last month, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton told county clerks in his state that they could opt out of issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples.

It turns out that in doing so, he had the encouragement of some vocal and influential Religious Right activists in his state, including Steve Hotze of Conservative Republicans of Texas, who wrote to Paxton hours after the court handed down its ruling urging him to ignore the decision by Supreme Court justices who  “hate God and want to let the Sodomites queer our country.”

The Dallas Morning News obtained Hotze’s email through an open records request:

“Greetings in the name of Christ our King!” Hotze wrote Paxton about two hours after the court ruled on June 26.

“Do what the Louisiana AG has done,” Hotze said in an email, urging Paxton to emulate that state’s Republican attorney general who said Louisiana didn’t have to comply because there was no specific line in the court ruling saying so.

“The illegitimate SCOTUS ruling does not name Texas, so fight those lousy bastards,” said Hotze, president of Conservative Republicans of Texas, a group influential in Harris County GOP primaries. “They hate God and want to let the Sodomites queer our country.”

Fox News Darling: Do Whatever It Takes To Stop 'Evil' Gays From Marrying

Steven Hotze, the Texas-based conservative activist and doctor beloved by Fox News for his crusade against Obamacare, is out with yet another anti-gay diatribe, this time calling on members of Conservative Republicans of Texas to back a Texas bill that would prohibit clerks from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, even if marriage equality were to become legal in the state.

In a post on his website, Hotze hails the legislation, authored by GOP state representative Cecil Bell Jr., as a way to engage in “spiritual warfare” against “the homosexuals and the politicians who support their agenda.”

The bill, Hotze hopes, will defeat “those who want to destroy the moral fabric of our state and nation by forcing us to accept and affirm ‘homosexual mirage’ and the chosen perverse sexual practices of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender) as normal.”

“Texas is the last bastion of Christian and conservative thought, power and action in the nation,” Hotze writes. “If Texas were to fall, then America would be lost to the socialists and the secular humanists. We must shift the momentum in the battle for the heart of America and lead a Christian and conservative offensive that will spread across America and defeat Obama and his pro-homosexual, socialist allies.”

Conservatives, he says, should “warn your family members, friends and fellow church members about the evil that will descend upon us if we allow ‘homosexual mirage’ to occur in Texas” (He uses the term “homosexual mirage” because “the idea that homosexuals could be married is a ‘mirage.’ It is contrary to God’s moral order. It’s a counterfeit. It’s a lie.”).

Publicizing a video from the far-right group MassResistance about how “radical and evil” gay rights supporters destroyed Massachusetts through the legalization of same-sex marriage, Hotze warns that the introduction of marriage equality means “anyone who speaks out against homosexuality and deviant sexual relationships will be prosecuted for hate speech and hate crimes, violating the Constitutional rights of the majority to their freedom of speech and freedom of religion.”

“It should be viewed by everyone who wants to take a stand and fight for God’s standard for marriage,” he adds. “This is spiritual warfare.”

Marriage equality is legal in 36 states, and nothing Hotze described is even remotely close to being true.

Via Texas Freedom Network:

It’s time to rise up and take a stand for God’s truth about marriage! A fierce battle for the soul of Texas has begun. The liberals and their pro-homosexual allies want to force Texans to accept ‘homosexual mirage’ as morally right, just as they have done in Massachusetts and California.

The idea that homosexuals could be married is a ‘mirage.’ It is contrary to God’s moral order. It’s a counterfeit. It’s a lie.



State Rep. Cecil Bell has introduced HB 623, the Preservation of State Sovereignty and Marriage Act, which would ban Texas civil servants from issuing a ‘homosexual mirage’ license.

Taxes or public funding should not be used to issue ‘homosexual mirage’ licenses or be used to enforce any court order to recognize ‘homosexual mirage.’

HB 623, which follows this letter, would prohibit any state or local government employee from issuing a ‘homosexual mirage’ license.

Rep. Cecil Bell has demonstrated the courage of his convictions by introducing HB 623. He needs to know that you support him in this battle. The homosexuals have already begun harassing him with filthy and hateful emails, hoping to intimidate him and his staff. This has always been the modus operandi of those who oppose God’s Word.



Will you warn your family members, friends and fellow church members about the evil that will descend upon us if we allow ‘homosexual mirage’ to occur in Texas by showing them the 28 minute video, entitled What Same-Sex Marriage Has Done for Massachusetts?

http://www.massresistance.org/docs/marriage/video_2013/index.html.



If the Texas Marriage Amendment is overturned permanently, then every Texas citizen, every church and business would be coerced and compelled to recognize and affirm homosexuality and other deviant sexual relationships as morally and legally equivalent to marriage. If this occurs then anyone who speaks out against homosexuality and deviant sexual relationships will be prosecuted for hate speech and hate crimes, violating the Constitutional rights of the majority to their freedom of speech and freedom of religion. If you do not think that this could happen in Texas, then it is vital that you educate yourself on what has occurred in Massachusetts since homosexual marriage was allowed by the courts there in 2003. If you want to know what the horrendous, long term, adverse effects of legalizing homosexual marriages are, then you simply must watch this shocking 28 minute documentary, entitled What Same-Sex Marriage Has Done for Massachusetts. You may watch it online at

http://www.massresistance.org/docs/marriage/video_2013/index.html.

This documentary reveals how radical and evil the homosexual movement is. It demonstrates the dramatic legal changes that the homosexuals and their allies have imposed on every area of life in Massachusetts since 2003, when ‘homosexual mirage’ was legalized by the Massachusetts Supreme Court. It should be viewed by everyone who wants to take a stand and fight for God’s standard for marriage. This is spiritual warfare. See Ephesians 6:10-20.

“The wicked strut about on every side, when vileness is exalted among the sons of men” (Psalm 12:8).

As you will see after viewing this documentary, the homosexuals and the politicians who support their agenda, have a godless, secular worldview and have taken control in every area of public life in Massachusetts. This is so tragic because our Savior and King Jesus Christ gave believers the Great Commission to take the entire world captive to obedience to Him (Matt. 28:18-20).

The most important issue facing our state and nation is whether we are going to follow God’s ordained plan for marriage.

Texas is the last bastion of Christian and conservative thought, power and action in the nation. If Texas were to fall, then America would be lost to the socialists and the secular humanists. We must shift the momentum in the battle for the heart of America and lead a Christian and conservative offensive that will spread across America and defeat Obama and his pro-homosexual, socialist allies.



I am drawing a “line in the sand” and asking you to join with me, Rep. Cecil Bell and other conservative Republican state legislators in defeating those who want to destroy the moral fabric of our state and nation by forcing us to accept and affirm ‘homosexual mirage’ and the chosen perverse sexual practices of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender) as normal.

Paranoia-Rama: Homosexuality Lessons, Bombing Mexico, And The Great Condom Scam

By Brian Tashman and Miranda Blue

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

Are schools spending the money that they earn by giving out free condoms to finance lessons on “how to be homosexuals”? And will America survive long enough to find out?

5. The Gays Are Coming To Teach Your Children ‘How To Be Homosexuals’

On a conference call with members of his Conservative Republicans of Texas group last week, Fox News darling Steven Hotze shared his own take on the anti-gay myth that LGBT rights advocates want to legalize pedophilia and “recruit” children.

“There’s another key point of the homosexual agenda, and it’s overturning the laws prohibiting pedophilia,” Hotze asserted, bringing up of course the tiny group NAMBLA. “They want to break down the laws, they want to decriminalize sex between a man and a boy. If you can believe it, that’s how sick and deviant and perverted their minds are, it’s terrible.”

“They’ve got to do that, because they can’t reproduce, they’ve got to recruit,” he continued. “Why do you think they want to get in the Boy Scouts?”

Hotze also exposed the goal of the marriage equality movement: “If they allow same-sex marriage in Texas, folks, they’ll be passing out stuff to your children to teach them how to be homosexuals.”

4. Marriage Equality Will Bring About America’s Collapse

You might have thought Hotze’s predictions are terrifying, but he has nothing on James Dobson, who warned this week that marriage equality will cause “the entire superstructure of culture” in the United States to “ come crashing down.”

“That's happened in Rome, it happened in Greece, it's happened throughout history and I don't think that America can survive in the form we have known ... if we allow the family to disintegrate. And that is, in fact, what's happening,” he said.

3. Obama’s True Nature Revealed 

Respected language analyst Rush Limbaugh knows why President Obama said in a speech last year that “I have had my military and our team look at a wide range of options” to respond to a chemical weapons attack in Syria.

The words “my military,” Limbaugh said this week, reveal the president’s “messianic complex.”

“He thinks that the existence of the United States while he is president is nothing more than the story of Barack Obama.”

Limbaugh was echoing the attack of Charles Krauthammer, who picked up on the phrase to accuse Obama of being a Napoleonic “narcissist.”

Unsurprisingly, Media Matters found that George W. Bush used the exact same phrase without provoking right-wing hysterics.

2. Get Ready For A War With Mexico

The real question is whether Napolean-narcissist-messiah Obama’s military is ready to “laser or blitz” Mexico in a war over undocumented immigrants.

Republican House candidate Mark Walker of North Carolina floated the idea of a war against our southern neighbor at a Tea Party event in June.

"I will tell you if you have foreigners who are sneaking in with drug cartels to me that is a national threat," he said. "And if we got to go laser or blitz somebody with a couple of fighter jets for a little while to make our point, I don't have a problem with that either. So yeah, whatever we need to do."

1. The Free Condom Racket

Perhaps the coming U.S.-Mexico war can be financed by the profits that public schools are making off of providing free condoms.

Fox News commentator Todd Starnes joined Family Research Council president Tony Perkins this week to discuss the latest incident of "anti-Christian persecution" that has been exposed by his reporting , this time the case of a junior high school student who was asked to remove a “Virginity Rocks” t-shirt that violated her school’s dress code.

Starnes’ theory : The school was afraid that the student’s promotion of abstinence would cut into the “condom profits” it was earning by making free condoms available to students.

“Here’s my take on it, I thought it was interesting, [the student’s mom] said what’s really interesting is that any child in that junior high school can go to the counselor’s office and ask for and receive free condoms and yet her daughter cannot wear her pro-abstinence t-shirt in the public school,” Starnes said. “Here’s what I think the issue is Tony Perkins, I believe that maybe they were concerned this pro-abstinence t-shirt might cut into this school’s condom profits.”

John Cornyn Meets With And Supports Dr. Steve Hotze

Just last week, Dr. Steve Hotze made news for sending out a Republican Party fundraising letter in which he declared that "our Founding Fathers would be furious to find out that the Constitution was being interpreted to allow sodomites to marry."

This sort of rhetoric is not at all surprising coming from someone like Hotze, who was responsible for anti-gay mailings that attacked Houston mayor Annise Parker and who believes that "medical problems are frequently caused by personal sin":

Hotze was able to better articulate his views in 1986, when he was one of dozens of ministers, professionals and laypersons who signed the Coalition on Revival's Manifesto for the Christian Church. The coalition claims on its Web site to be a national network of religious leaders aligned in a mission "to help the Church rebuild civilization on the principles of the Bible so God's will may be done on earth as it is in heaven." They want all aspects of life -- government, science and education -- to adhere to fundamental biblical beliefs. These beliefs include the following:

• A wife may work outside the home only with her husband's consent

• "Biblical spanking" that results in "temporary or superficial bruises or welts" should not be considered a crime

• No doctor shall provide medical service on the Sabbath

• All disease and disability is caused by the sin of Adam and Eve

• Medical problems are frequently caused by personal sin

• "Increased longevity generally results from obedience to specific Biblical commands"

• Treatment of the "physical body" is not a doctor's highest priority

• Doctors have a priestly calling

• People receiving medical treatment are not immune from divine intervention or demonic forces

• Physicians should preach to their patients because salvation is the key to their health

So naturally, when Hotze was in Washington, DC last week, he was invited to have a personal meeting with Sen. John Cornyn to discuss Cornyn's support for Hotze's lawsuit against Obamacare:
