Tim Brown says that "the reason people can’t take bisexuality seriously is because it is a mental illness that needs to be corrected via repentance, not coddled like a three-year-old. The same thing applies with homosexuals. They are not taken as a legitimate lifestyle choice by the world’s population because it is unnatural."
Peter LaBarbera believes that "the government should be taking steps to discourage men and boys from practicing homosexual behavior."
Finally, Glenn Beck will be releasing his first feature film next year and it is about a warrior Santa Clause tasked with protecting Jesus Christ. We really are at a loss for words:
Matt Barber is furious that the AP ran a story about a gay World War II vet: "To make this about sexual identity politics, and to focus on this individual's abhorrent sexual proclivities and his lifestyle choices, and to somehow elevate those disordered behaviors as something to be proud of, is really offensive."
William Gheen says that it may be time for a third party if the GOP passes any sort of immigration reform legislation.

It is 2014 and the Republicans have finally elected a black woman to serve in the House of Representatives, so naturally Glenn Beck sees that as proof that Martin Luther King's dream has finally come true.

Laurie Roth has some advice: "Do not forget the truth about Islam, the gay agenda and Illegal aliens when you go to vote soon. Most of us don’t want to hurt anyone and their rights, however, we won’t put up with groups rewriting and destroying all our rights, crushing our real history, Judeo/Christian values and Constitution."
Finally, we'd like to point out to Janet Porter that anti-gay magistrates resigning from office in North Carolina rather than perform gay weddings is not an example of Christians being forced out of office. They chose to resign rather than follow the law.

Grant your Church heart-felt repentance at every level.

May believers everywhere pray and fast this week as they plan to cast their votes. Have mercy and redeem our nation, a nation you have blessed beyond any nation in history, but which has declined precipitously under our watch. Guide your people this Election Day and may our choices be pleasing to You."

Linda Harvey is furious that a transgender woman is serving as Health Commissioner of Virginia: "It is incredibly disturbing that this kind of person with this kind of delusion in their own personal life has been appointed to this high public post with so much responsibility."
Finally, Bryan Fischer says that Christians and Muslims most certainly do not worship the same god because "our God has a Son while their god does not." We feel compelled to point out that if that is the case, then Christians and Jews do not worship the same god either.

Christians will never stop fighting gay marriage: "The belligerent effort to silence supporters of marriage is fully underway. We
will not, we must not, be silenced. The former President of the United States pandered to the Human Rights Campaign. We will resist

The owners of the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho are ready and willing to go to jail rather than not be allowed to discriminate against gays ... just like the Apostle Paul.
The Catholic League's Bill Donohue is calling for a Federal Marriage Amendment: "As any astute political science undergraduate knows, there is no constitutional right to gay marriage. But now that this issue has been thrust upon us by our constitutional law professor president, we need to affirm marriage between a man and a woman in the U.S. Constitution."
MassResistance has a simple fourteen point plan on how to "stop the 'gay marriage' steamroller."

"Coach" Dave Daubenmire has a warning to pastors: "They are going to make you marry homosexuals. They are going to throw you in jail and seize your church if you don’t. The devil and his kids do not play fair…they play dirty. You’re going to experience first-hand whether or not you will avoid 'the wrath' you assured us we would not have to endure."
Dr. Laurie Roth knows what women want: "Real women in America want God fearing, Constitution and freedom loving servants serving in the HOUSE and SENATE. We are sick of the egomaniac who has taken over the White House. We demand that real men be real men…not this fake ‘metro-sexual’ garbage. Real men are not sound bite experts.

Women want men with integrity, grit, and courage and yes…honor who love right and fight right."
