Ken Ham: 'Homosexual Behavior' A Sign That 'This Nation Is Under Judgment'

WorldNetDaily is preparing for its annual “9/11 Day of Prayer and Repentance,” an effort to win God’s hand of protection back to America after “the beginning of the removal of our nation’s blessings” in the 2001 terrorist attacks, something that WND reports is “more important than ever” in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision striking down gay marriage bans. In this effort, WND has the support of such Religious Right leaders as Chuck Norris and former Rep. Michele Bachmann.

WND also recorded a number of promotional videos with Religious Right leaders who were attending the National Religious Broadcasters convention earlier this year, including Ken Ham, the creationist behind Answers In Genesis and the Creation Museum, who agreed with the central premise of the event, which is that 9/11 was a warning sign from God that America continues to ignore, as proven by increasing support for things like gay rights.

“Personally, I believe from a perspective of reading Romans 1, that this nation is under judgment from God,” Ham explained. “The wrath of God revealed against those who rebel against him in Romans 1. And one of the signs of even God judging a nation and withdrawing the restraining influence of the Holy Spirit, one of the signs is the sign of homosexual behavior, as it says in Romans 1. And I believe we’re seeing that in this nation, I believe this nation is under judgment. “

Ham added that America must also repent because “this nation is throwing God out of the culture more and more, it’s throwing God out of the public schools, out of the culture, and murdering millions of children in their mothers wombs.”

Richard Land, the former top political official at the Southern Baptist Convention, pinned the blame for God’s judgment on Christians getting divorced, having abortions, and having sex out of wedlock.

“As long as we’ve got known sin in our lives, as long as there is virtually no statistical difference between the number of Christians who are getting divorced and the number of non-Christians who are getting divorced, the number of Christian women who are having abortions and the number of non-Christian women who are having abortions, the number of Christian young people who aren’t married who are having sex and the number of non-Christian young people who are having sex, God is not going to bless America,” Land told WND.

South Carolina Pastor: 'Sodomites' Flying Rainbow Flag Must 'Flee The Wrath Of God'

Kevin Boling, a South Carolina pastor and host of the Greenville-based “Knowing The Truth” radio program, told his listeners after the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling that while the rainbow represents God’s covenant with mankind after punishing humanity with Noah’s Flood, “the rainbow has been adopted by the sodomites here upon the face of the earth as a symbol of the movement that is actually a movement that will bring about the wrath of God.”

Boling quoted a passage from Romans that lists various sins that are “worthy of death” before launching in to his warning to the “sodomites.”

“Listen, my friend, to drape yourself in the symbol of God’s wrath being spent when you’re actually using it as a symbol of liberation from God himself and from his Word and from his Commandments, you are heaping to yourself additional condemnation,” he warned. “For the believer, they see in this that there is now no condemnation for us in Christ, but for those who are impenitent, unwilling to come to Christ on his terms, who are celebrating their sin rather than celebrating their savior, for them they are heaping to themselves even more the judgment of God upon them.

“Flee the wrath that come, my friend. Flee the wrath that come by coming to the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Tea Party Sheriff Calls For 'Pitchforks And Torches' In Response To Marriage Equality Ruling

Milwaukee County sheriff and Tea Party hero David Clarke has a new radio show on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze network, and naturally used the July 4th episode to explain how the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling was just the sort of thing that inspired the Declaration of Independence and so should inspire a new “revolution” complete with “pitchforks and torches.”

“If you call yourself an American, then you have to start a revolution in this country after what happened last week at the United States Supreme Court,” Clarke told his listeners. “If you believe in the concept of self-rule, representative democracy, limited government, then you have no choice at the very least to be part of a revolution that’s going to be necessary to get this country back.”

“Yes, pitchforks and torches,” he insisted, explaining that Washignton can’t be fixed so “you have to deconstruct it.”

Clarke went on to explain the various ways in which he believes that President Obama and the Supreme Court are embodying complaints found in the Declaration of Independent, including “imposing Taxes on us without our Consent” (“when John Roberts said that Obamacare was a tax, he imposed a tax on us without our consent”); “declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever” (the marriage equality ruling); “abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province” (Obama’s executive action on immigration); and “excit[ing] domestic insurrections amongst us” (the gay marriage decision, the “fictitious war on women” and “pitting blacks against whites, pitting the rich against the poor”).

“King Obama,” he said, ignored the 2014 election results, and now it’s time for revolution, which he explained should start by defending businesses that discriminate against gay people.

“The next time in your state the federal government tries to put a church or a bakery or a pizza place out of business because they want to live by their religious conviction,” he said, “when I talk about pitchforks and torches, you need to get down there, surround that business and dare the federal government to come in and close it. That’s the revolution I’m talking about, it has to start in the states.”

Cliff Kincaid: Gays In Military Show Influence Of Obama's 'Pedophile' Mentor

Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy in Media is part of the small cadre of conservative activists who have been trying in vain for years to focus media attention on President Obama’s childhood family friend Frank Marshall Davis, whom they claim mentored him into a communist worldview.

Kincaid brought his case once again yesterday to Frank Gaffney’s “Secure Freedom Radio” podcast, where the two discussed the theory that the president is, in Gaffney’s words, a “Manchurian candidate” infiltrating the White House.

Kincaid cautioned that Davis didn’t just coach Obama in “fighting the capitalists,” he also taught him “cultural Marxism.” Davis, he explained, was a “pedophile” and pornographer (Davis reportedly wrote a risqué book called “Sex Rebel”), the influence of which can be seen in such Obama administration horrors as a an Army general introducing his husband at a Pentagon gay pride event.

“This is a guy, Davis,” Kincaid said, “who was basically Obama’s mentor for seven to eight years of his life before he went off to college, and I think he had the major influence over our president, not only in economic terms — many people think of Marxism as just an economic theory, in terms of inequality, fighting the capitalists and all the rest of it, which is a hallmark of Obama — but also in terms of cultural Marxism. Because many people forget that Davis was also a pedophile, we have the evidence of that, he wrote pornographic books.”

“And we see that in Obama’s cultural policies,” he continued, “where during the Pentagon gay pride ceremony this year, Frank, you actually had a Pentagon general, a male general, get up there in front of an audience in the Pentagon and introduce his husband, and a transgendered Pentagon employee looked on. Well, needless to say, since then we’ve had the gay marriage decision, the White House has been lighted up in rainbow colors. We’ve seen a cultural collapse in this country that is even more serious than Obama’s imprint on our economic debacle and policies.”

Gaffney added that there are also “national security sort of overtones” to such displays of LGBT pride.

 

'Sodomites, Go To Hell!': Right-Wing July 4th Event Warns Hurricanes Create 'Sodomite Heaven'

We recently reported that the Oath Keepers, an antigovernment militia group, and James David Manning, the Harlem pastor who likes to say that “Jesus would stone homos," as the two  were planning to team up over the Fourth of July weekend for their second annual event in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to “prove that racism is being manufactured by liberals and not practiced by conservatives.”

Although Oath Keepers members were involved in last year’s event, this year they were honored with the presence of the group’s founder, Stewart Rhodes, who gave a brief speech on July 4th alleging that liberals want to divide Americans by race and prompt another civil war.

But the real fireworks seemed to have come on the second day of the event, July 5, which was filmed by conservative activist Wiley Drake, who is credited as the cofounder of the “Racial Reconciliation of the Races” event.

Manning was introduced by Rhonda Herrington, a member of his ATLAH church congregation. Herrington recalled a visit to Pensacola, Florida, to protest the trial of creationist tax-dodger Kent Hovind, and was shocked to see that the city had become a “sodomite heaven,” which she blamed on “manufactured” hurricanes meant to “get rid of the Americans.” She also took aim at Rev. Al Sharpton, who she blamed for “doing race riots” and “church shootings” with money funneled from George Soros through President Obama.

As she was leaving the stage, a member of the audience yelled, “Sodomites, go to Hell!” Manning, taking the stage, then asked everyone to stand and join him in yelling, “Sodomites, go to Hell!”

Manning continued on this theme throughout his sermon, saying, “The other day before leaving here, we had on our announcement board that all fags, all lesbos, all fag churches that burn in lust for human waste will burn in Hell as human waste.”

“We’re going to keep on preaching and teaching that fags, lesbos, sodomites, and all other hell-raisers are going directly to Hell,” he said, “and I pray that God will let me sit someplace where I can send them to Hell.”

Manning went on to say that all of the biblical revelations he has had since President Obama took office have come true, including the fact that the president is the “son of Satan.”

Matt Barber's New Book Publishing Venture

Great news, everybody! BarbWire, far-right online outlet created by anti-gay activist Matt Barber, is going to start publishing books and e-books! “Many of the initial releases will be short, low-cost e-Books consisting of three to five chapters on subject matter ranging from America’s moral abyss, to Islamic terrorism, the economy, history and what it means to be a man in today’s emasculated America,” says the release announcing the launch of the publishing company.

Barber and his buddy Tristan Alexander Emmanuel, CFO of the new venture, have seemingly decided that there is insatiable demand for the kind of bigotry, frothing-at-the-mouth Obama hatred, conspiracy-theorizing, and end-times fearmongering featured on the site. It’s hard to blame them – after all, somebody keeps buying Ann Coulter and Dinesh D’Souza’s dreck.

The announcement declares, “BarbWire Books is committed to publishing hard-hitting, culturally relevant e-Books and Books from its family of BarbWire contributors and columnists and other top-notch Christian thinkers and leaders.”

The first of these “top-notch Christian thinkers and leaders” to be published by BarbWire Books will be Jeff Allen and his Shattering Liberal Lies About the Bible: Vol 1: Is God A Slave Master? Here’s how we summarized Allen’s contributions to BarbWire last year:

Jeff Allen, a BarbWire editor, compares the gay rights movement to “a malignant cancer” and says, “Each victory for the homosexual activists represents another nail in America’s coffin.”  Allen has supported brutal anti-gay laws in Uganda, Nigeria, and Ethiopia, which include imprisonment not only for sexual conduct but also for joining social clubs or advocating for equality. Allen was upset when criticized for his “innocent mistake” of calling a fake photo of “NAMBLA for Obama” an example of “the undeniable link between homosexuality and pedophilia.” More Allen: “Satanism, sodomy, and slaughter are each part of the Devil’s sinister agenda to destroy America.”

That is apparently what passes for the “penetrating cultural analysis” that Emmanuel says is needed by “likeminded social conservatives and Bible-believing Christians” in these “days that are evil.” As Emmanuel says, “you can never have too much of a good thing.”

If you don’t have the patience to wait for Jeff Allen’s e-book, you can visit BarbWire’s bookstore and pick up some titles from Canadian conservatives warning of the “shock and cultural rot of antinomian, anti-Christian cultural Marxism” that plagues America’s neighbor to the North and offering “a sobering forecast of what is coming – that is, unless by God’s grace, American Christians wake up and take back their country.” 

Herb Titus: Christians Must Defy Gay Marriage Ruling Or Abandon Government To Heathens & Satan

Herb Titus, the Christian Reconstructionist, “biblical birther" and longtime brother-in-arms of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, is urging conservative Christian public officials to deny marriage licenses to gay couples in defiance of the Supreme Court’s recent ruling, rather than simply resign from their positions and abandon “civil society to the heathen and to the Enemy.”

Titus told Alaska GOP politician Joe Miller in a radio interview posted online over the weekend that thanks to a Supreme Court majority that embraces a “postmodern worldview,” Americans are adrift at sea.

“Instead of writing law, they write poetry, they write philosophy, they write sociology and psychology,” he said of the Supreme Court justices. “We no longer have any fixed principled by which to measure what is right and wrong, what is constitutional, what’s not constitutional. We’re basically at sea in a ship which is manned by nine people, and you don’t have much to say about anything anymore because they’re in control of the ship and the storm is out to sea and you can’t get off the ship.”

When Miller asked if there is now a “confrontation” between this postmodern worldview and people who believe in “immutable, natural law,” Titus agreed, saying, “It’s a very small minority of people who have any sense whatsoever of the law of Nature and of Nature’s God, that is the law as revealed by God in Nature and in the Holy Scriptures.”

He blasted public officials who are implementing marriage equality laws or resigning from their posts rather than follow the law, saying that those officials should instead say, “I’m going to stay in this job and I’m not going to issue marriage licenses and if you come after me, you can come after me. I’m going to take a stand.”

Christians, he lamented, have “abandoned civil society to the heathen and to the Enemy” and will soon be “thrown in jail” and otherwise “persecuted” because of it.

Later in the interview, Titus warned that if conservative Christians give up on trying to shape government to biblical specifications, they will end up like the Amish, with special protections for their religion but “no influence in the greater society”

“God didn’t call us to just be in a closed-off, religious community, God called us to exercise dominion,” he said.

He repeated that public officials who disagree with marriage equality should defy the law and “make people remove us from office, if that’s what it’s going to take you, ‘you can remove me, but I’m not going to just ask you to give me a special privilege, or resign and will no longer function in a civil capacity.’ What that does, I think, is basically sounds the bugle of retreat.”

Sheriff David Clarke: Might Take A 'Lexington-Concord Type Moment' To Stop Gay Rights, 'Socialist Agenda'

In an interview with WorldNetDaily last week, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, an emerging Tea Party hero who has been courted by Gov. Scott Walker, said that the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality might be a “catalyst” for a conservative movement to resist President Obama’s “socialist agenda,” but added that he wasn’t sure what could stop it “short of a Lexington-Concord type moment.”

The “Alinskyite” Obama, Clarke told WND, has “created all this division, stirring up racial animosity in our cities, rich against poor in the Occupy movement, and now it’s this religious divide” with gay marriage. “We had a Civil War. We see a great divide forming again,” he said.

He said that he hoped the marriage ruling would be a “catalyst” for conservatives to “defy this stuff,” lamenting, “[W]ho would have thought that in the 21 century homosexuality would come out of the closet and churches would be forced to go into the closet?”

“After a big decision like this, people scream and holler, ‘This is bad for the country,’ and then we just acquiesce,” Clarke said. “I believe one of these decisions might just be a catalyst to not just say we don’t like it but to actually do something, to defy this stuff.

“And that’s what churches are supposed to do is resist. And if the court comes back and says you don’t have a right to exercise your religion, then they’re going to have to decide what to do next. … But who would have thought that in the 21 century homosexuality would come out of the closet and churches would be forced to go into the closet?”

The Constitution is being “obliterated,” and “our democratic way of life is being transformed into a socialist agenda, and I don’t know what it’s going to take short of a Lexington-Concord type moment,” Clarke said.

“We had a Civil War. We see a great divide forming again. That’s a part of the landscape that has come from Obama; he’s an Alinskyite, and he knows you have to create a critical mass. So they’ve created all this division, stirring up racial animosity in our cities, rich against poor in the Occupy movement, and now it’s this religious divide. That’s why I keep telling people gay marriage is not the issue; you’re missing it. You have to peel back the layers and look at this transformation. It happens subtly right before your eyes, and you’ll miss it.”

Clarke said division in the conservative movement also aids the left.

“They will have to band together and decide what they’re going to do, but I think the first act is defiance,” he said. “Justices Alito, Scalia, Roberts, Thomas said this is unconstitutional. I’m going with that, and what these four justices said went against the language of these five oligarchs. Amend the Constitution if we don’t like it because we’ve done it, what, 27 times?”

Kobach: Adoption By Gay Couples 'Certainly Not Good For The Kids'

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a rising star in the Republican Party who has helped to craft the party’s immigration and voting rights policies, said in a recent interview that his biggest concern about marriage equality is the prospect of gay couples adopting children, which he said is “certainly not good for the kids.”

Joe Miller, the failed Alaska GOP senate candidate and Kobach’s Yale Law School classmate, spoke with the Kansas official on his radio program in an interview posted online last week.

Kobach told Miller that the implications on religious liberty of the Supreme Court’s decision striking down gay marriage bans would be “not good.”

“Although the decision may not be used as a direct precedent for infringing upon the rights of us, of people of faith, to speak freely,” he said, “I think it’ll be used as kind of supporting law when the next thing comes down the pike, which will be probably an attack on the 501(c)3 status of churches that don’t affirm gay marriage, you might see some attacks on free speech by members of the cloth of any faith. I don’t know which is going to come first, but I think all of these things are now very real possibilities moving forward.”

“Of course, one thing that I really cared about in this whole gay marriage dispute over the last decade is adopted kids,” he added. “Now we have a situation where gay couples are adopting on the same terms and must be allowed to adopt on the same legal terms as heterosexual couples and, you know, that’s certainly not good for the kids. So, so many things are going to be following from this.”

Miller responded by citing a toilet paper ad in praise of single moms, saying, “It’s a world upside down, elites are trying to impose a different value system on this country, they’ve had a large degree of success and they certainly have a willing hand in the Supreme Court in their efforts.”

Bob Vander Plaats: Gay Marriage Leading To Legalization Of Pedophilia, Criminalization Of Bible

Bob Vander Plaats, the influential Iowa Religious Right activist who spearheaded the effort in 2010 to unseat three state supreme court justices who voted for marriage equality, warned last week that the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling striking down state gay marriage bans will help to pave the way for the legalization of pedophilia and the criminalization of certain Bible verses.

Saying that the Supreme Court “undefined the institution of marriage,” Vander Plaats told the “View From a Pew” radio program that as a result “now polygamy can come back” and pedophilia will gain legal protections.

Claiming that “the University of Colorado now is saying they want to reclassify that as a sexual orientation and decriminalize it,” Vander Plaats said, “All of the sudden, when you get outside of God’s design for human sexuality inside of the bonds of one man, one woman marriage, it will be an absolute trainwreck.”

When the program’s cohost, Frank Thomas, asked Vander Plaats about the right-wing myth that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wants to lower the age of consent to 12, Vander Plaats repeated that pedophiles are now “going to follow the same route that homosexulatiy did about it’s a sexual orientation.”

He also brought up the specter of transgender people assaulting young girls in restrooms: “Here’s the thing about the identity of restrooms, male-female restrooms, you get to use whichever one you want. That’s a trainwreck waiting to happen, because there’s going to be a 21-year-old guy who says ‘I feel like a girl,’ he goes into a girls’ restroom, there’s going to be a 12-year-old girl who says ‘I feel like a boy,’ and something bad’s going to happen.”

Later in the program, Vander Plaats told American Christians that it’s “time to gird your loins” for persecution.

“We see Christians overseas getting beheaded, but it’s now coming right here to roost in our own country,” he said.

In response to a question about a for-profit business in Iowa that is being sued for refusing to host a gay couple’s wedding, Vander Plaats claimed that churches will soon also be forced to perform same-sex weddings and implied that certain Bible verses will soon be criminalized as “hate speech.”

“For the people to believe that the churches are off ground, there’s no way they’ll get touched, that’s absolute nonsense,” he said, “and Romans 1, Matthew 19, Mark 9, all that is going to be hate speech.”

Jonathan Cahn: God Will Judge America For Rainbow Lights On White House, World Trade Center

Back in April, the day after the Supreme Court heard arguments on the constitutionality of state gay-marriage bans, End Times rabbi Jonathan Cahn spoke to members of Congress gathered at an event in the Capitol and told them that a ruling in favor of marriage equality would cause God to pass judgment on America .

Speaking at a conference in Pennsylvania this weekend, Cahn repeated the warning he had given to members of Congress, saying that following the Supreme Court’s ruling, we are “watching a civilization approaching judgment” as we witness “the apostasy, the falling of America.”

Cahn was particularly concerned by the decision to project rainbow colors on the White House following the marriage equality ruling. “Just a few days ago, the highest house in the land, representing the American government, was bathed in colors representing not the American flag but of another flag representing the celebration of what the Bible calls evil,” he said. This, he added, was an attempt to “desecrate” the name of God.

Cahn also tied the decision to light One World Trade Center in rainbow colors to his somewhat convoluted theory that an inscription President Obama left on a beam of the building in 2012 was in fact an invitation for God’s judgment on America.

“God is long suffering and merciful,” he said, “but God is not mocked.”

Cahn also predicted that Christians in America will soon face persecution on par with that faced by victims of violent religious persecution in the Middle East.

Eagle Forum President: Impeach Kennedy For Trying To Be 'King Of America'

Just a few hours after the Supreme Court struck down bans on gay marriage last month, former Missouri GOP chairman and current Eagle Forum president Ed Martin joined Iowa talk radio host Steve Deace to discuss the decision, which he said should lead to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s impeachment for acting like the “king of America.”

Martin compared marriage equality opponents to David fighting Goliath, who “taunted Israel like the Supreme Court taunted us with this ruling.”

Saying that merely electing a new president or pressuring Congress won’t be enough to respond to the marriage equality ruling, he said, “David didn’t fight Goliath in the way that Goliath wanted. He fought in a different set of terms. And I will tell you, one thing that has not been invoked in a meaningful way is the doctrine of, is how to limit the judiciary with impeachment.”

“I think we’re to that point” of impeachment, he said, explaining that while the four more liberal justices are “corrupt in terms of their worldview,” Kennedy “has really put himself up as the king of America in a way that the founders would have recognized as a discussion point for an impeachable offense.”

Claiming that evangelical churches are full of “posers” on cultural issues, Deace suggested that the Christian Right should emulate the Southern Baptist Convention’s crackdown on moderates in the 1960s, when, he said, “they exposed and purged all posers.”

Martin responded that he couldn’t speak for churches, but that if the GOP tries to “water down marriage,” that will be “the end of the Republican Party.”

Martin then, bizarrely, compared the emergence of the Republican Party in the 1860s to fight back efforts to extend slavery to the current Republican Party’s “retreat” on the issue of the Confederate flag.

“People have been trying to do that, what they did for years, and our people retreated and surrendered within like two days,” he said of the flag issue. “I’ve never seen the speed with which the culture put our people into rapid retreat. They didn’t even make meaningful arguments about the loss of life and the brother against brother and what the Confederacy meant. They just retreated to the space they were pointed to.”

“It’s an extraordinary moment, but the tide can shift, as you say, if we get back to first principles,” he added.

Cliff Kincaid: Impeach Ginsburg & 'Known Lesbian' Kagan Because Of Marriage Ruling

In his latest column, Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy In Media calls on Congress to impeach Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan in the wake of the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision, saying they were biased in the case because they had both officiated weddings for gay couples and because Kagan is a “known lesbian.”

“Members of Congress taking up this cause will not get sympathetic headlines in the media,” he writes. “But it is something that has to be done if Independence Day is going to have any meaning left at all.”

He adds that a spokesman for Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore’s Foundation for Moral Law had told him that “the failure by Kagan and Ginsburg to withdraw from the case leaves them open to impeachment and removal from the bench.”

Whatever the reason for the putsch, our form of government has been overthrown and another put in its place—a judicial dictatorship that is devoted to elevating to protected status a sexual minority seeking the abolition of traditional values. Left unchecked in its drive for power over others, this cabal threatens not only our heritage but America’s standing in the world as a superpower. It appears the Obama administration wants to spend more money on Pentagon gay pride events and climate change than actual weapons systems to defend America.

As we get ready to celebrate Independence Day, however, we can rest assured that the American people remember enough about the founding of their country that they cannot and will not accept a judicial tyranny. That would make a complete mockery of what July 4th is all about and what millions of Americans have sacrificed for.

Our media didn’t treat it as a big deal, but Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg had both officiated at gay weddings. Groups such as the National Organization for Marriage, the American Family Association, the Coalition of African American Pastors, and the Foundation for Moral Law had called for Kagan and Ginsburg to withdraw from the case.

Matthew Kidd, executive director of the Foundation for Moral Law, told Accuracy in Media that the failure by Kagan and Ginsburg to withdraw from the case leaves them open to impeachment and removal from the bench.

In the case of Kagan, an Obama appointee, she may have had a personal conflict-of-interest. This is a sensitive matter, but various reports indicated that Kagan was a known lesbian before she was nominated to the Court by President Obama. For example, the gay blog QueerTY had identified her as a lesbian. That would mean she was compromised on homosexual issues prior to her ascension to the bench and after she was confirmed. This is a conflict of interest that cannot be tolerated.

Whether the reports of her lesbianism are true or not, we know that Kagan had an extremely radical record as Dean of Harvard Law School (2003 to 2009) where she promoted homosexuality and transgenderism. Nevertheless, she was confirmed to the Supreme Court in a 63 to 37 vote.

We now see the evidence of what happens when the media and Congress fail to do their jobs.

Congress, however, can try to undo some of the damage by holding hearings into the possible impeachment of Justices Kagan and Ginsburg. This would be one way of getting to the bottom of Scalia’s sensational charge that America’s democratic system has been subverted and stolen from the American people.

We are bound to hear that impeachment would be difficult and conviction impossible. There’s always an excuse for not taking bold action in Washington, D.C. But a congressional failure to act, in the wake of Scalia’s extraordinary charge of a judicial Putsch, would suggest that celebrating July 4th means fireworks and nothing more.

I think enough Americans are sufficiently concerned about this matter that they want to see some real fireworks, in the form of Congress exposing the lies, corruption and conflicts of interest that went into the sick and tyrannical gay marriage ruling.

Members of Congress taking up this cause will not get sympathetic headlines in the media. But it is something that has to be done if Independence Day is going to have any meaning left at all.

Tom Tancredo: Marriage Equality Will Criminalize Support For The Confederate Flag, Criticism Of Islam

Former Republican congressman Tom Tancredo managed to tie two of the biggest issues of the week together on Tuesday when he railed against efforts to take down Confederate flags, saying that the Koran is an even more dangerous symbol, and then claimed that thanks to the Supreme Court’s recent marriage equality decision, such comments will soon be illegal.

When Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg asked Tancredo to discuss a Facebook post he recently wrote comparing the Confederate flag to the Koran, Tancredo responded that efforts to “erase” the flag are misguided.

“However,” he continued, “there is something else out there, our president really happens to enjoy it, we teach about it in the public schools, we tell people, kids in the public schools to respect it. It’s called the Koran and it’s responsible for far more, far more murders, enslavement, the most horrible things, and it’s still going on. It’s not history, it’s still happening. And that, we don’t ban it, heavens no, we even tell kids we gotta read it in our schools and respect it.”

Malzberg then changed the subject, asking Tancredo about the Supreme Court’s marriage decision, which Tancredo said was connected. Not only will the decision eventually lead to the criminal prosecution of pastors, he claimed, but soon “everything I just said” about the Confederate flag and the Koran will be “outlawed” due to the institution of unconstitutional hate speech prohibitions.

“Mark my words, that’s what’s coming,” he said. “Dark days ahead, Steve.”

Jeffress: Marriage Equality Decision, White House Rainbow Lights Signs Of End Times

This past Sunday, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins delivered the sermon at Robert Jeffress’ church in Dallas. Although Perkins’ visit had been planned more than a year in advance, Jeffress was delighted that it ended up falling just two days after the Supreme Court struck down gay marriage bans nationwide, which Jeffress called “the greatest, most historic, landmark blunder in the history of the United States Supreme Court.”

Jeffress had some good news, though: The Supreme Court’s decision and the ensuing rainbow-flag projection on the White House all just confirm the Bible’s reports of what will happen before the return of Christ.

“What happened Friday was nothing short of an affront in the face of Almighty God,” Jeffres said in his introduction of Perkins. “And how did our president respond? President Obama responded Friday night by bathing the White House, the people’s house, in colors that represent what the Bible calls degredation, depravity and sexual perversion.”

Jeffress and his church, he said, are “not going to be silenced by the liberal left, Barack Obama or the United States Supreme Court.”

“We’re not despondent, we’re not discouraged in the least,” he added, “because everything that happened Friday is simply confirmation of what the Bible says is going to happen before the return of Jesus Christ.”

Jeffress has previously called the gay rights movement and the book “Fifty Shades of Grey” signs of the End Times.

Perkins also addressed the marriage equality ruling, saying he was less concerned about being “on the wrong side of history” than on “the wrong side of the one who’s going to write the final chapter of history.”

The government, he said, had “usurped” issues like marriage and turned “the sacred into the secular.”

“I cannot see a more clear visual representation of where our nation stands,” he said, “than on Friday morning, our courts turned the sacred into the secular and that night, the president bathing the White House in the colors of Pride. God have mercy on America.”

Steve King: Impeach Ginsburg & Kagan Over Gay Marriage Decision

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said yesterday that he would support impeaching Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan over their participation in the Supreme Court’s marriage equality case whenever “the public is ready” for such proceedings.

King, a guest on Iowa talk radio host Jan Mickelson’s program, took a call from a listener who said of the justices who voted to strike down same-sex marriage bans, “I submit that these are rogue justices and they can be impeached and removed by Congress.”

King told the caller that he agreed with him, but “impeachment itself,, we have learned throughout history, is a political decision” and the timing is “up to the will of the people.”

“That provision does exist, and let’s hear what the public has to say,” he added. “If that were put up before me today, and I think I mentioned Ginsburg and Kagan as being two that had been conducting same-sex marriages on their spare time and did not recuse themselves, I would put up the vote to remove them from office. And I’d like to see that case heard again and it would come down four-to-three and it in the end it would come back to the states for that decision, where it should be. But I don’t know if the public is ready for that.”

Mickelson then asked King about Sen. Ted Cruz’s idea of establishing retention elections for Supreme Court justices — similar to those in Iowa in 2010 that resulted in three state supreme court justices losing their jobs in retribution for marriage equality votes — which King said he thought was “a pretty good idea.”

But in the near term, King said, the nation must turn to “nationwide civil disobedience” in defiance of the marriage decision. He also repeated his plan for states to “abolish civil marriage” in order to deny the benefits and responsibilities of marriage to gay and lesbian couples.

“By doing so we can avoid the litigation that’s coming at every one of our churches,” he said, claiming that gay rights advocates “will not stop until they can force a priest to conduct a same-sex marriage at the altar of a Catholic church.”

Earlier in the program, King went on a long tangent linking the U.S. Constitution not only to the Magna Carta and to Greek and Roman law, but also to the New Testament.

“You can go piece by piece of this all the way through the history of the foundation of western civilization to get to the underpinnings of the pillars of American exceptionalism,” he said. “And we seem to have forgotten about those underpinnings and now we’re at this place where there is no right and wrong and the rule of tyranny of whoever can get leverage in whatever form and five justices in the Supreme Court setting a policy that turns over thousands of years of human experience.”

“This Constitution is rendered an artifact of history if we let this stand,” he warned.

Alabama Activists Warn Of America’s Destruction, 'Sodomites' Taking Over Education In Wake Of Marriage Decision

Yesterday, the group Sanctity of Marriage Alabama organized a press conference in Montgomery to protest the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision, which devolved into an unhinged anti-gay rally.

The event featured a number of activists and public officials, including state Public Service Commissioners Chip Beeker and Twinkle Cavanaugh (who are famous for deploying religion in creative ways in their work regulating public utilities); Michele Bachmann mentor and Roy Moore ally John Eidsmoe; and John Killian, chaplain of the Alabama GOP.

Alabama has been center stage of the gay marriage fight since Moore, with the backing of fellow Republicans, used his position as chief justice of the state’s supreme court to order public officials to defy a federal court decision striking down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

Beeker, the public service commissioner, kicked things off by calling the Supreme Court’s decision “an assault on God” and on “our Christian heritage” that rendered the 10th Amendment “null and void.”

“A runaway judiciary,” he continued, “is a bigger threat to the United States than ISIS. Liberal judges have done more harm to our country and our Constitution than Al Qaeda."

Not to be outdone, Sanctity of Marriage Alabama spokesman Tom Ford, who called marriage equality part of a “war against God” and a “new invention” the results of which “no one knows.”

But he had some guesses. “The best indication that I have of what it will bring is what we’ve seen in the Bible,” he said. “I can go to Soddom and Gomorrah. In history, we can go to Pompeii, we can go to other places, we can look at Nero in the time of Rome. And in these times God brought destruction, and he also raised up people to speak his truth and he also drew people to himself. And this is our hope.”

He also warned of the dire consequences on children: “If we give our children to the sodomites to educate, when it’s all said and done and they believe that sodomy is okay, why are we surprised?”

Baptist street preacher Tommy Littleton sounded a similar alarm, saying “the human rights issue of our era” is “protecting our children from what is nothing short of gay liberation theology, full sexual liberation.”

“Today we live in probably the most challenging time of our generation, of our nation’s history,” he said, warning of an impending “climate of fear, loss of free speech, loss of religious freedom, and the overwhelming tsunami that is coming against us and our families and our churches and our children.”

After arguing that curriculum standards like Common Core indoctrinate children in homosexuality, he urged the “normal majority” to “rise up and say I don’t want my children to be educated by people who are confused about their own sexuality.”

“Are we really in an honest conversation on the other side or are the LGBT people being used for a much greater and horrendous agenda?” he asked. “I believe they are.”

Becky Gerritson, head of the Wetumpka Tea Party, cited an unfounded right-wing rumor about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wanting to lower the age of consent to 12 years old to warn that the court’s decision paves the way for adult-child marriage and plural marriage.

She urged the audience to “have compassion” on “future victims of this decision” who will be trapped in plural marriages and all the “horrors that it will play out in their lives.”

Eidsmoe, who works for Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore’s Foundation for Moral Law, hinted at future challenges to the Supreme Court ruling, saying “this is far from over” and referring to legislators and probate judges who are ready to “obey God rather than man.”

The Supreme Court’s decision, he said, “constitutes an illegitimate means of reaching and unconstitutional decision to create an invalid institution to further the perpetration of immoral acts.”

Roy Moore's Lawyer Demands Alabama Defy 'Wicked' SCOTUS Ruling, Choose 'God Or Satan'

The head of Alabama’s court system, an employee of notoriously anti-gay Chief Justice Roy Moore, has sent a letter to Gov. Robert Bentley and other state elected officials urging them to defy the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling or else “become complicit in the takeover by the wicked,” reports AL.com.

“Public officials are ministers of God assigned the duty of punishing the wicked and protecting the righteous,” Win Johnson, director of legal staff at the state’s Administrative Office of the Court, wrote to the elected officials in a letter obtained by the newspaper. “If the public officials decide to officially approve of the acts of the wicked, they must logically not protect the righteous from the wicked. In fact, they must become protectors of the wicked. You cannot serve two masters; you must pick – God or Satan.”

He continues with a defense of criminal prohibitions on homosexuality: “The criminal laws against homosexual sodomy are for the protection of the righteous, particularly the young, the weak, the vulnerable, who need the law to teach them right from wrong when in a vulnerable state. The U.S. Supreme Court, although it claims to have done so in 2003, cannot take something that God calls a crime and declare it not a crime.”

He then equates compliance with the marriage equality ruling with obedience in Nazi Germany, writing “the civil government must now become a persecuting power; you cannot avoid it.”

Perhaps Johnson is an American Family Radio listener.

UPDATE: In a letter of apology to Gov. Bentley, Johnson said that Moore "reprimanded" him for sending the invective.

Here is the full letter obtained by AL.com:

Time for Public Officials to take their stand one way or the other

Jesus Christ is Lord of all. He came to save the world by His death and resurrection. That world includes you, me, the family, the civil government, all the institutions of life. He came to advance His Father's kingdom, not watch man run rampant upon the earth as if Christ had never come. As if it were the days of Noah!

Public officials are ministers of God assigned the duty of punishing the wicked and protecting the righteous. If the public officials decide to officially approve of the acts of the wicked, they must logically not protect the righteous from the wicked. In fact, they must become protectors of the wicked. You cannot serve two masters; you must pick – God or Satan.

The criminal laws against homosexual sodomy are for the protection of the righteous, particularly the young, the weak, the vulnerable, who need the law to teach them right from wrong when in a vulnerable state. The U.S. Supreme Court, although it claims to have done so in 2003, cannot take something that God calls a crime and declare it not a crime.

We're facing something even worse now, the civil government taking a new step and actually requiring the approval and sanctifying by the state of an evil behavior. Five justices on the U.S. Supreme Court have now opined that the States of this country and all of us must approve of so-called marriages of same sex couples.

Therefore, the civil government must now become a persecuting power; you cannot avoid it. The civil government must protect what it approves of. It must protect the advocates' employment, their business dealings, their lives in every way. Against whom? Against those who think their lifestyle is evil. That's you and me, bible-believing Christians, the Church, etc.

Public official, what will you do? Will you stand up for the law of Alabama, for the people, for the weak and vulnerable, for the law of God? Or will you capitulate? Will you become complicit in the takeover by the wicked?

"I must follow the law," you say. Law? What law? There is no law anymore, there's just opinion. One day this, one day that. When the law becomes merely the opinion of a handful of people on the courts, there is no longer any law. There is tyranny. There is chaos. But there is no law.

The young and the weak, those that are caused to stumble by courts that approve of what is evil, are those whom Jesus referred to when he said, "It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones." Luke 17:2. You don't want to be complicit in allowing such stumbling blocks.

Don't use the Nazi war-crimes trial defense: "My superiors (or the courts) told me to do it." You're not standing for the rule of law when you capitulate to a law that defies God and exposes people to the wicked. You're just a coward making excuses!

Or will your conscience cause you to resign? Why would you leave the people of this State, their children, your children and grandchildren to the wolves, those who would rend the society apart with their denial of what's good and evil?

Your duty is to stand against the ravages of a superior authority that would go beyond its rightful power and force upon the people something evil. That's what the founders of our country did when Parliament exceeded its powers. That's what the Puritans in civil government in the 1600's did when the King exceeded his powers.

On Judgment Day, you won't stand in front of the media, the advocates of "Equality," or even the federal courts; you'll stand before the King of Kings, the Judge and Ruler over the Kings of the Earth, Jesus Christ. His law is not subject to the vote of man, and He, asthe good and loving author of that law, does not exempt any nation from it. The law's author, speaking of Himself as "the stone which the builders rejected," said, "Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder." Luke 20:18.

What can you do? You have authority as an elected official. You also are sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution and Alabama Constitution. Find a way to do so. Don't acquiesce to the takeover (actually the takedown)! Use your authority and every legal angle to oppose the tyrants! If necessary, just say, "No." It is not rebellion for you to say, "Your interpretation of the Constitution is wrong, beyond your authority, and detrimental to this nation." In fact, it's your duty. You're not opposing the rule of law, you're upholding it by saying that.

GOP Rep: Marriage Equality Decision 'Offensive' To Civil War Dead Because They Were 'Fighting To Further A Christian Lifestyle'

Rep. Glenn Grothman, Republican of Wisconsin, joined Milwaukee-area radio host Vicki McKenna on Friday to discuss the Supreme Court’s ruling striking down state bans on same-sex marriage. Grothman told McKenna that the Supreme Court’s reasoning, which was based on the 14th Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause, was an affront to the Americans who died in the Civil War because it was “a strong religious war to further a Christian lifestyle by getting rid of slavery.”

“Our president during the Civil War was, of course, Abraham Lincoln, who was known as the most biblical of presidents, somebody who quoted the Bible a lot,” he said. "In the Civil War, some 600,000 people died in a country that was much less populated than that today. And it was a much more religious country and I think a lot of people who died fighting in that war felt they died fighting for a religious cause, you know, ‘Battle Hymn of the Republic’ and all that.

“I think it would shock those people who died in that war to find out the constitutional amendment which was ratified kind of as a culmination of their great efforts and their great deaths would be 150 years later, a little less than 150 years later, used by these five robed, arrogant, robed people to take this constitutional amendment and say that that constitutional amendment that was drafted after the Civil War was in fact an amendment designed to say that same-sex marriage had to be legal.”

He added that the decision is “particularly offensive” given that the 14th Amendment was “drafted by a people who felt they had just engaged in a strong religious war to further a Christian lifestyle by getting rid of slavery.”

 

Phyllis Schlafly Proposes Congressional Resolution Affirming The Dignity Of Straight People

Phyllis Schlafly is none too pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision striking down state gay marriage bans, and has a modest proposal for Congress: Pass a resolution affirming the “dignity of opposite-sex married couples,” especially that of couples where “a provider-husband is the principal breadwinner and his wife is dedicated to the job of homemaker.”

While this resolution might not change much in the short term, the anti-feminist crusader writes in her syndicated column today, it might act as an inspiration to the anti-gay movement as they continue to fight marriage equality.

Justice Kennedy's opinion for a 5-4 majority of the Supreme Court has rightly been condemned for its lack of grounding in the constitutional text he is sworn to uphold. Unable to find gay marriage in either the due process clause or the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment, Kennedy ultimately rests his case on what Justice Clarence Thomas sarcastically called the "dignity clause" of the Constitution.

There is no such clause, of course, although Kennedy's majority opinion mentioned "dignity" nine times. But if dignity can be conferred by decisions of the Supreme Court, then Congress can do so, too.

Therein lies a first response: Congress should formally recognize the dignity of opposite-sex married couples and resolve to protect that dignity in our laws. A joint resolution should recite the many reasons why the special union of husband and wife has been honored for "millennia," as Kennedy admitted.

A crash program to rebuild the traditional American nuclear family is urgently necessary for continuing our nation's political and economic success in this century. This won't happen if we transform marriage into a means of giving "dignity" to mostly childless homosexuals.

Once Congress is on a roll to confer dignity, it should confer an extra measure of dignity on the single-earner family, where a provider-husband is the principal breadwinner and his wife is dedicated to the job of homemaker, a role more socially beneficial than working in the paid labor force.

After reciting the foregoing reasons and many others, Congress should conclude its resolution by formally resolving that the traditional family, founded on a married husband and wife, carries special dignity and deserves special recognition because it provides unique benefits to society.

This is not to deny that every human person has value and dignity, or that other domestic relationships may have some value in limited circumstances. But Congress should respond to Kennedy with a ringing affirmation of the unique dignity that should be accorded to society's foundational unit: the marriage of husband and wife.

Naysayers will scoff that the foregoing resolution doesn't change the Supreme Court decision, and you can imagine a late-night comedian comparing it to the medal of courage the Wizard of Oz presented to the Cowardly Lion. But movie fans will recall how that gesture inspired Dorothy and her companions toward achieving their goal.
