Flashback: E.W. Jackson Joins Pat Robertson To Attack PFAW, Promote Christian Coalition

Back in 1997, E.W. Jackson was working for Pat Robertson’s Christian Coalition as the director of the Samaritan Project, a short-lived campaign designed to reach out to minority voters by passing off the Coalition’s political agenda as a “bold and compassionate agenda to combat poverty and restore hope.”

According to the New York Times, Jackson took part in a blessing over Robertson: “With Mr. Robertson kneeling, a half-dozen black pastors blessed him, touching his shoulder. The Rev. Earl Jackson, an African-American preacher from Boston who heads the Samaritan Project, pronounced the scene ‘not just an event but an epiphany.’”

People For the American Way had criticized the Samaritan Project with a campaign called “Don’t be Fooled by the ‘Christian’ Coalition.”

In a 1997 interview on the 700 Club, Robertson and Jackson, who is now the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor in Virginia, discussed the Christian Coalition’s outreach to the black community and criticized PFAW. “People For the American Way needs to try to do a little bit more of the American way, and the American way is a way of faith and that’s something that they just don’t seem to understand,” Jackson said.

Anti-Gay Groups Rev Up Anti-ENDA Rhetoric As Senate Vote Nears

As RWW has been documenting, anti-gay groups have been getting wildly over the top in their denunciations of the federal Employment Non Discrimination Act, which would add to federal anti-discrimination law protections against workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.  With a procedural vote in the Senate scheduled as early as Monday evening, anti-LGBT groups are getting increasingly shrill.

On Friday night, the Family Research Council blasted out a breathtakingly dishonest alert charging that under ENDA “employers would be forced to reward workers based on their sexual preferences.” FRC’s Tony Perkins called ENDA a “republic-altering piece of legislation that has the power to fundamentally destroy Americans' First Amendment rights.”

Through ENDA (which FRC has blocked for a decade), businesses would be ordered to make hiring, firing, and promotion decisions -- not based on a person's qualifications -- but on their sexual expression. Homosexuals, cross-dressers, and transgendered workers would automatically qualify for special treatment that other workers would not. Can you imagine walking into your child's classroom and meeting a teacher dressed in drag? Neither can most Americans. But unfortunately, that's just one of the many consequences of adopting a law as dangerous as this one. Preschools, daycare centers, summer camps, religious chains like Hobby Lobby or Chick-fil-A -- they'll all be subject to the law, regardless of their personal beliefs and workplace standards.

Also on Friday, the National Organization for Marriage blasted ENDA, calling it “a Trojan horse built to attack the foundational institution of marriage between a man and a woman.”

That’s the same line taken a day earlier by Ryan Anderson, a protégé of Robert George and the Heritage Foundation’s answer to young Americans’ support for LGBT equality. Anderson wrote in National Review online that “ENDA would create special privileges based on sexual orientation and gender identity, backed up by coercive enforcement.” Anderson also says “ENDA would further weaken the marriage culture and the ability of civil society to affirm that marriage is the union of a man and a woman, and that maleness and femaleness are not arbitrary constructs but objective ways of being human.”

Anderson and others call ENDA a threat to religious liberty even though the bill in fact includes a broad exemption for religious organizations, an exemption that is broad enough to raise concerns among some backers of the law. But for Anderson, even that religious liberty exemption is “inadequate and vaguely defined.” He says ENDA would interfere with the rights of business owners to run their businesses the way they want.

That was also the theme of a hyperventilating alert send on Sunday by former military chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt warning that the Senate was preparing to vote “to punish Christian Business Owners.” He says ENDA will trample religious freedom and “will force Christians into bankruptcy and lawsuits if they refuse to hire homosexuals that oppose their corporate mission.”

In reality, ENDA has broad support in the business community and is backed by large majorities of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. Not only that, but majorities of all religious groups – including white evangelical Protestants – support laws to protect gay and lesbian people from workplace discrimination. So clearly, ENDA’s opponents do not speak for all Christians, or even all evangelical Christians, most of whom agree that fairness on the job is an American value that is worth upholding in law.

As President Barack Obama notes in an op-ed published in the Huffington Post on Sunday, ENDA is a concrete expression of America’s ideal of equality under the law:

America is at a turning point. We're not only becoming more accepting and loving as a people, we're becoming more just as a nation. But we still have a way to go before our laws are equal to our Founding ideals. As I said in my second inaugural address, our nation's journey toward equality isn't complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.

In America of all places, people should be judged on the merits: on the contributions they make in their workplaces and communities, and on what Martin Luther King Jr. called "the content of their character." That's what ENDA helps us do. When Congress passes it, I will sign it into law, and our nation will be fairer and stronger for generations to come.

Rep. Palazzo: DADT Repeal Proves Obama Doesn't 'Share The Same Christian Faith That We Do'

Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-MS) is coming to the defense of the Mississippi-based American Family Association after the organization was listed as a hate group in an Army training session, and is pointing figures at the White House. In an interview with the AFA’s OneNewsNow, Palazzo hailed the extremist AFA as a “great organization” and accused Obama of trying “to make America secular” and demonize Christians.

“Basically I don’t believe [President Obama] shares the same Christian faith that we do because he’s allowing his minions his political appointees to do this,” Palazzo told AFA correspondent Chad Groening. “I mean he’s repealed ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ in the military. It was a policy that was working.”

Apparently, being a Christian means embracing the views of the AFA, a group whose chief spokesman has called for gays to be criminalized like drug addicts and commended the massacre of Native Americans.

Congressman Steven Palazzo represents Mississippi's Fourth District, where Camp Shelby is located. He has sent a letter to Army Secretary John McHugh signed by fellow Mississippi Representatives Greg Harper and Alan Nunnellee, as well as Senators Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker.

During an interview with OneNewsNow, Palazzo – a 25-year military veteran – said there seems to be a pattern of attacks on religious liberty within the military.

"I do believe there's an agenda out to make America secular and to ridicule and demagogue great groups such as AFA, which is all about the family, all about Christian principles," said the congressman. "So we're not going to stand idly by and allow ... the Army or other groups to attack such a great organization."

The Mississippi native said voters need to understand that elections have consequences.

" ... Basically I don't believe [President Obama] shares the same Christian faith that we do because he's allowing his minions his political appointees to do this," he comments. "I mean he's repealed 'don't ask, don't tell' in the military. It was a policy that was working."

Joyner: Satan Wants To Place America Under The 'Worst Totalitarian Police State' In History

Watching Rick Joyner's "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program is truly an exercise in futility because Joyner possess an amazing ability to speak for extended periods of time while literally saying nothing at all, resulting in broadcast after broadcast filled with nothing vague and contradictory statements.

This week, Joyner has been defending his earlier prediction that America is headed toward martial law and insisting that he still believes to that to be the case.  And, according to Joyner, it could be the key to reestablishing the Constitution ... or it could end up leading to the worst tyranny humanity has ever known. 

So, that pretty much covers all the possibilities.

But what Joyner knows for sure is that "the enemies of God have pretty much taken control over America" and have stripped away the right to expression, the freedom of religion, and the freedom of speech so that they are now on the verge of disappearing forever if Christians don't stand up.

After all, as Joyner explained, God showed him twenty five years ago that Satan's mission is to ensure that America comes "under the worst form to tyranny there has ever been on the earth, the worst totalitarian police state there has ever been on the earth":

Guandolo: 'Tennessee Is One Of The Most Dangerous States In The Union' Because Of Sharia

Tennessee has become a hotbed of wild Sharia law paranoia, and hucksters like John Guandolo, a disgraced former FBI agent who has made a career pushing anti-Muslim conspiracy theories, have cashed in.

During an appearance on Crosstalk with VCY America’s Vic Eliason, Guandolo told a caller from Tennessee that his state — which has a whopping 1% Muslim population — is a hotbed of Sharia law and potential terrorism.

“I have spent a lot of time in Tennessee because Tennessee is one of the most dangerous states in the union with regard to this threat, you have some very courageous state legislators who are addressing the threat but you also have some folks there in leadership positions who are not addressing it,” Guandolo said, adding that that Muslim Brotherhood members he arrested confirmed his claims.

Recently, Tennessee Republican politicians were upset about a mop sink which they thought could be used for Muslim foot washing, claimed Islam isn’t a religion, backed legislation to make it a crime to practice Sharia law and tried to ban a mosque, that has been the center of lawsuits and vandalism.

GOP and Tea Party activists have also called for the state’s Republican governor to fire a Muslim state employee because of her faith, and after he refused accused him of supporting Sharia law.

Religious Right Anti-Immigrant Group Warns Non-Christian Immigrants Will Encourage Sex Trafficking

Conservative activist Kelly Monroe Kullberg recently formed Evangelicals for Biblical Immigration as a response to the pro-reform Evangelical Immigration Table, and her new organization has received support from immigration critics like the American Family Association.

Like other Religious Right groups such as Eagle Forum and Family Research Council, the AFA is a staunch opponent of immigration reform and spokesman Bryan Fischer has even called for the US to require that all immigrations convert to Christianity and enforce a ban on Muslim immigration.

AFA talk show host Sandy Rios spoke to Kullberg this week about the supposed dangers of the Senate reform bill, including the laughable claim that the legislation will lead to “open borders” and therefore a rise in sex and human trafficking.

She also warned that people of “other faiths” and “incompatibly worldviews,” especially Muslims, will flood into America and “lessen the value on human life” in the US, making sex trafficking more acceptable. “As Islam takes root in America and other traditions take root, we are seeing a decline in human worth, human value and a rise in trafficking,” Kullberg said.

Swanson: Halloween Comes From Noah's Flood

We’re sorry that our post on Kevin Swanson’s Halloween special came too late for anyone who already took part in the demon sex holiday, but the Colorado pastor has some important anthropological findings that we need to share. According to Swanson, Halloween actually goes back to Noah’s Flood.

He claims that Noah’s son Ham celebrated the dead from the flood as part of his rejection of God and that Halloween and similar holidays are really a way to ignore God by celebrating “the departed souls and spirits of those who had vanquished in the Flood.”

President Obama Is Leading A Modern Day Islamic Jonestown Cult

On yesterday's Trunews radio program, Rick Wiles interviewed a self-proclaimed expert on Jim Jones and his Jonestown cult named David Conn who declared that President Obama "is the reemergence of the Jones Cult mentality on a grand national level."

Conn: First off, Jones captured the media and Obama captured the media.  Jones had a strange childhood - a father, a drunk, a mother that had to fend for itself and so Jimmy Jones he was very lonely and not really looked after by a father figure.  Jones ended up as a highly egocentric, narcissistic, charismatic man who would do and say anything that would get him ahead; no real and deep-seated principles. And that's obvious.

And the same way, Obama attacked the lone media organization that began researching him critically, talk shows and their pundits going on Fox News.  Obama captured and captivated the rest of the media.  One of them was so in love with Obama that he, Chris Matthews, lost his cool and said he got a tingle up his leg.

Obama also captured and captivated the politicians and even moderate Democrats, those that were ordinarily fairly sane and seemed to have fallen blindly before this blazing young political messiah.

And Obama also had a very strange childhood.  You know, a father deserted the child when he two years old.  Obama's only father figure was a terribly nasty old man, a pornographer and a child molester and a cocaine user who was an avowed communist.

Wiles: Frank Marshall Davis.

Conn: Yeah, right. We could go into that, how weird he was. And it's pretty well established that Frank Marshall Davis was the one that got Obama into cocaine.

And also, both of them, Jones and Obama, had a background of community organizing.

...

Obama is a leader of a massive cult himself.  He's the leader of the cult and the cult is Islam and he leads it by way of being its major Western world defender...

Wiles: Is Barack Obama leading America to cultural suicide?

Conn: Oh yes.

Wiles: I mean a cultural Jonestown Massacre?

Conn: Yes. That's why I said he's far more dangerous because already what's going on has caused, I think, enormous amounts of people who have just lost everything they've had and who knows how many suicides.

Paranoia-Rama: This Week In Right-Wing Lunacy - 11/1/13

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

In our latest installment, we learn about new fake dangers of same-sex marriage, real dangers of falling for satire and the true perils of peering too closely into Bryan Fischer’s head.

5. Gay Marriage Leads To Self-Marriage

We have already heard that gay marriage will lead to dog-man, box turtle-man and Eiffel Tower-man marriage, but apparently person-on-self marriage is on the way too. In a last ditch campaign to block a marriage equality bill, Hawaii Family Advocates is playing up the slippery slope argument, warning that same-sex marriage may lead to a person marrying themselves. The group also warned of “polygyny, polyandry, bi-sexual marriage, group marriage, concubinage, beastiality [sic],” leading us to wonder if they understands what the word bisexual means.

Not to be outdone, the Hawaii Republican Assembly warned the “destructive wake of homosexual marriage” will force churches to marry same-sex couples and have five-year-old kids learn about “the gay and lesbian lifestyle.”

4. United Nations To Seize The Alamo

Shockingly, Tea Party activists in Texas and Alex Jones of InfoWars have been pushing a conspiracy theory concerning the United Nations, Democrats…and the Alamo. The conservatives warn that the designation of the Alamo as a UNESCO World Heritage Site will put the compound under the control of United Nations bureaucrats, all with the help of the Democratic Mayor of San Antonio Julian Castro. The Texas Land Commission notes that the UNESCO designation will change nothing about the Alamo’s ownership or operations, but such claims are nothing new: Texas’ junior senator Ted Cruz promoted claims that the United Nations, George Soros and various municipal officials are going to abolish golf courses and paved roads using Agenda 21.

3. Sharia Law In Dearborn…Again

The satirical National Report article, “City in Michigan First to Fully Implement Sharia Law,” has made such waves that the city it referenced, Dearborn, has had to issue a statement to reassure people that no, the city is not under Islamic rule. But people may just believe that Mayor Jack O’Reilly’s denial of an article from a spoof website is probably just a sign that he is practicing taqiyya, as anti-Muslim politicians continue to actually believe that the Michigan city operates under Sharia law. The mayor’s analysis is spot on: “The National Report’s misguided attempt at humor furthers the goals of some people who have tried to suggest that the city of Dearborn is anti-American because our population includes residents who are Muslim.”

In fact, the National Report article appears to be plagiarized from a very real article from The Guardian on Sharia law in the country of Brunei.

2. EPA Gun Grabbers!

Steve Benen flags this right-wing conspiracy about how gun activists claim that an EPA regulation on pollution is actually a backdoor plan to push “gun control behind the scenes,” pointing to the recent closure of a smelter in Missouri. Seeing that Gun Owners of America claims that health care reform was really just a big push to disarm Americans and send gun owners to concentration camps or electro-shock therapy, the claims that Obama will use the “the environment as a pretense to go after a lead smelter so bullets will be scarce and more expensive.” As Benen notes, however, the EPA enforced the rules against the smelter in 2008 under the Bush administration.

But as we all know time has a liberal bias.

1. Military Will Kill Christians

Over the last several years the American Family Association has been predicting that the military under President Obama will start going after Christians in US, and 2013 is no different as AFA spokesman Bryan Fischer last week charged that service members may begin to use “lethal force” on Christians and “turn [their] takes” on conservative organizations like the AFA. He even said “it would not be illogical next year at the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C.,” referring to the annual Religious Right conference, “that military troops surrounding the Omni Hotel.”

We look forward to Fischer making the exact same prediction for every remaining year of Obama’s term.

Glenn Beck Can Barely Contain Himself At The Idea Of 'Senator David Barton'

A few weeks ago, Glenn Beck set out on a mission to convince Rep. Louie Gohmert to launch a primary challenge to Sen. John Cornyn; an endeavor that Gohmert was clearly reluctant to undertake.

But now Beck has moved on, predicting that Gohmert will remain in the House where he will run for Speaker, which leaves open the position of primary challenger to Cornyn.  So who does Beck want to see fill that slot?  None other than his best friend David Barton.

"Senator David Barton," Beck just kept repeating on his radio program today, unable to keep the elated smile off of his face just thinking about it:

Rick Wiles Explains How Miley Cyrus Sold Her Soul To Satan And Had Sex With A Demon

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles got so upset about a photo with Miley Cyrus next to a skeleton that he invited Joe Schimmel of Good Fight Ministries onto TruNews to discuss how Cyrus is supposedly promoting Satanism after making “a deal with Lucifer.”

Wiles called Cyrus the “poster child” for the “Synagogue of Satan” and asked, “any wonder whom she serves as her soul’s master?”

After warning that Cyrus has been “baptized into the Illuminati,” Schimmel said that Cyrus was actually imitating the Hindu goddess Kali during her performance at the VMA’s.

“There’s definitely a spiritual thing going on,” Schimmel continued, “she’s basically, at least symbolically, showing how to have sex with some Satanic figure.”

Fischer: America Needs A Christian President Who Will 'Exorcise The White House'

Responding to a story about how Presidents Reagan and Truman reportedly saw ghosts in the White House, Bryan Fischer tweeted that the White House needs an exorcism once voters elect a “Christian president.”

Maybe Fischer should talk to his pal Gordon Klingenschmitt, who on his TV show tried to exorcise a demon from Obama.

Barton: It's Not Global Warming, It's The Judgment Of God

David Barton recently sat down with televangelist Kenneth Copeland for another series of "Believer's Voice of Victory" programs that are apparently supposed to air sometime next week, as lots of the discussion is focused on mobilizing people to vote in the upcoming off-year elections in states like Virginia, New Jersey, and elsewhere.

Several of the programs have already been uploaded to YouTube, include one in which Copeland and Barton declare that voting for candidates who support abortion opens the door to a curse upon the nation that results in floods, tornadoes, and pedophilia.

"Abortion was a seed to it," said Copeland, "that has grown into a murderous, bloody crop of child death."

Once "you open the door to killing," Barton added, "it's got a lot of different manifestations" because the nation immediately falls under the judgment of God as He removes his protection and "whap, here comes storms like we've never seen before and here comes floods and here comes climate stuff that we can't explain; all of the hot times and all the cold times and not enough rain and too much rain and we're flooding over here and we've got droughts over here ... And today we're saying 'oh no, it's global warming." No, we opened a door that lost God's protection over our environment and that's our choice":

E.W. Jackson: 'Deliver' Gays From 'Destructive' Lifestyle; Obama Will 'Teach Children Homosexuality'

Now that Virginia Republican lieutenant governor nominee E.W. Jackson is simply denying that he ever said anything that could be considered to be anti-gay, we’ve decided to post a few more clips of Jackson saying things that are totally not at all hostile to gay people.

In a Virginia Family Foundation speech last year, Jackson mocked President Obama for supporting marriage equality and for admiring same-sex couples, adding that he wants to “deliver” gay people:

That individual homosexual who is caught up in that lifestyle we love and so desperately want to see that person delivered; that woman who is contemplating abortion who is confused and emotionally distraught and has been misled by bad information, we love her, we desperately want to help her; but these folks who have it in their minds as homosexual activists and abortionists to fundamentally transform our country, they’ve got a fight on their hands and we are not ashamed of it.

But apparently Jackson actually is ashamed of it because he is now outright lying about his anti-gay views.

Jackson also criticized Obama in a 2012 interview with Religious Right activist Dean Welty, arguing that the president is “shaking his fist at God” and belongs to a party that has “declared war on God” by supporting marriage equality. In fact, he suggested that Obama supporters are “unclean” and that they have denied Jesus Christ and are worshipping Obama instead.

He even claimed that Obama “will force schools to start teaching all children homosexuality.”

He tried to explain his anti-gay viewers at an event earlier this month at Patrick Henry College, a conservative school that pushes anti-gay politics.

Jackson told his audience at Patrick Henry that gays and lesbians don’t face discrimination in society and that he is not anti-gay but only wants gay people “to do what we think will be helpful to them and productive for them rather than destructive.”

FRC Asks God To 'Intervene To Prevent; ENDA From Passing

The Family Research Council is asking its members to pray against the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which they claim will require employers to “give special treatment to LGBT employees” and instill an “anti-Christian bias in business.”

The group urges members to pray that ENDA will “be decisively defeated” and ask God to “intervene to prevent furtherance of this law, which would plant homosexuality even more deeply into the fabric of our society.”

The Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) will be brought to the Senate Floor as early as next week. ENDA will impact private and public employers and workplaces like the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell impacted the U.S. Military. Military leaders and chaplains are now caught in crises of religious conscience over elevating homosexual rights above religious liberty. Christian service personnel are bearing the brunt. Employers and employees will similarly be required to give special treatment to LGBT employees. This law would mandate the employment of homosexual, bisexual and "transgendered" individuals in inappropriate occupations, disregarding the fact that sexual conduct may be relevant to employment. ENDA would open America's businesses to a host of lawsuits and, I predict, more anti-Christian bias in business, just as is now happening in the military.

May ENDA, first introduced in 1996, be decisively defeated. May deceptive and inadequate religious liberty amendments not distract Congressmen from taking a principled stand on the issue. May God intervene to prevent furtherance of this law, which would plant homosexuality even more deeply into the fabric of our society. Bring millions who need Christ into His kingdom, including those involved in sexual sins, both homosexual and heterosexual

Larry Taunton At FRC: US Must Choose Between Christianity And Tyranny

Larry Taunton, an author whose Fixed Point Foundation is devoted to advocating for the truth of Christianity in the public arena, spoke at the Family Research Council Wednesday on the topic of “Combating Secularism in the Public Square.” Having recently injured his foot in a stumble, he joked that he wished he had a better story, that he’d been “kicking around a few liberals.” 

Taunton’s FRC speech  recycled much of the language in an article he wrote last year mocking the “Reason Rally” in Washington, D.C. as the “Rally for Nothing in Particular.” It reiterated the main thrust of his book, The Grace Effect: societies do better when there are enough Christians around to bring grace to the culture, and societies are in danger when they no longer have Christianity at their center.

Citing “new atheists” such as Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins (whose books he called “sheer nonsense”), Taunton argued that there is “growing hostility toward Christianity” and an effort to “drive Christianity from western life and culture.” Like many speakers at Religious Right events, he argued that a big source of America’s problems is that Christians and the church are not outspoken enough.

Taunton argues that how people answer questions about God determines our view of mankind and our view of government, particularly whether government is meant to serve man or man to serve the state. He warned that “we live in a time when the state is deemed to be the answer to all things.” The notion that “all men are created equal,” he said, makes sense only in a Christian context. And he warned that “we cannot dismiss God from public life and retain human dignity, worth and meaning, because those things can only be given by God.” More explicitly, he said, “society cannot and will not stand in the absence of belief in God.”  Taunton says some secular societies, like those in Western Europe, are “still running off of their accumulated Christian capital. But beware. When the fumes in that tank are spent, tyranny cannot be far away.”

In a response to a question from FRC’s notoriously anti-gay Peter Sprigg, Taunton expressed a sort of grudging admiration for the “gay and lesbian lobby,” which he said has changed America’s cultural conversation even though it represents a “tiny percentage” of the population.  He said many young people who identify as homosexual see God as a “cosmic spoilsport” and the church as hostile.  Citing research he did for an Atlantic article on young atheists, he said one young lesbian viewed Christians not as a group but as a “gang.”  Taunton said that in reaching out to people, he does not believe in compromising the gospel, but he encourages Christians to consider whether they are “projecting grace” in the way they communicate.  Odd, then, that he praised the Family Research Council, whose approach to LGBT people could hardly be any less grace-projecting.

The Oprahfication Of Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck harbors a seething hatred for Oprah Winfrey, whom he considers to be the "biggest fraud of my lifetime."  So it has been fascinating to watch his program lately as Beck slowly adopt her entire media and marketing strategy as he has begun spending show after show preaching to his audience that they need to overcome their fears and find their own purpose in order to create amazing lives.

Beck's new role as self-help guru is now resulting in entire programs where he does nothing but hail a Kindle book that he happened to stumble upon as "the way out of just about every mess the world finds itself in."

A few weeks ago, Beck discovered a Kindle book on Amazon called "The Art of Being Unmistakable: A Collection of Essays About Making a Dent in The Universe" that he's been promoting it ever since and last night, Beck had the author Srinivas Rao on the program to discuss his book and his worldview.  During the interview, Rao explained that, at age 34, he had been fired from every job he'd ever had and was broke and living with his parents, spending his days surfing and so he wrote this book ... and, as far as we can tell, that is pretty much about it. 

So basically, a broke, unemployed blogger living at home with his parents self-published a 64 page Kindle book and now he's being praised by Glenn Beck for having produced "one of the most important pieces of writing I have seen in quite some time":

E.W. Jackson Resorts To Lying To Duck Questions About Anti-Gay Rhetoric

The Republican nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia has contorted himself in all sorts of ways to dodge questions about his extremist record, arguing that anyone who simply quotes his past statements is violating the Constitution or persecuting him or misrepresenting him.

But since very few people would actually take his absurd objections seriously, Jackson has now resorted to lying.

During an interview with WUSA, he denied ever having said that gay people are “sick” or that God will stop blessing the military over gay rights. He said that such direct quotes are “absolutely, categorically not true.”

Unfortunately for Jackson, we here at Right Wing Watch have the audio of him making the very statements he is now denying he ever made.

Last year, we captured audio of Jackson calling gay people “perverted…sick people”:

And we recently posted video of Jackson suggesting that the military will lose God’s favor over same-sex marriage.

In fact, Jackson has made plenty of other viciously anti-gay remarks in the past.

Dave Weigel provides video of the WUSA interview, noting that Jackson is “just lying his head off about what he said in the past”:

Rachel Maddow points out that “Virginia Republicans’ last minute plans for this election appear to be to try to convince people that they have not said things that they have said on tape.”

 

Kincaid: Obama & De Blasio Leading Communist-Islamist Takeover; Inviting Another 9/11

Rick Wiles invited Cliff Kincaid of Accuracy In Media onto TruNews this week to discuss Kincaid’s recent press conference which called New York mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio a tool of “international communism, terrorism, and global Islam.”

“We’ve got the Communists coming together, personified by de Blasio’s past, present and future, and you have the Muslims in alliance with him,” Kincaid said, arguing that de Blasio is “setting the city up, and the nation, for another 9/11.”

Wiles couldn’t believe that anyone could be more of a Communist than Obama, and claimed that the Democratic Party is now run by Communists.

But while de Blasio may be even more radical, Wiles said that Obama is still the “perfect political hybrid, a Marxist Muslim” who is currently “orchestrating this alliance to dismantle the United States of America.”

Kincaid: He’s probably even more openly Communist, more of a radical than Obama himself.

Wiles: That’s hard to believe. What we have now is that the present day Democratic Party is the Communist Party, I really believe it. The Communists decided decades ago, they realized they’re never going to be elected in this country as Communists, they infiltrated the Democratic Party and over decades they took it over. Now, we’ve got people openly running as Communists, they don’t deny their Communist sympathies and nobody is blinking an eye about it, it’s quite normal now.

Kincaid: This is the case, certainly in the case of de Blasio. This guy’s more open than anybody.



Kincaid: This is the city of 9/11 and [blogger] Trevor Loudon says what’s happening to New York City with this candidate is the perfect storm. We’ve got the Communists coming together, personified by de Blasio’s past, present and future, and you have the Muslims in alliance with him. Together, this is the critical thing, in dismantling the NYPD’s counterterrorism programs and decimating its intelligence bureau, you are setting the city up, and the nation, for another 9/11.

Wiles: And in the White House is the perfect political hybrid, a Marxist Muslim who is in the White House right now and is orchestrating this alliance to dismantle the United States of America.

Hagee: 'If Man Says Something That Is Contradictory To What God Says, Man Is Lying'

On this week's "Hagee Hotline," Matthew Hagee responded to a question from a viewer asking how to respond to a new book that claims that the story of Jesus Christ was fabricated as part of a propaganda campaign created by the Roman Government in order to pacify its subjects.

Hagee responded by flatly declaring that the Bible says that God is truth, therefore "if man says something that is contradictory to what God says, man is lying."

Claiming that you cannot trust supposed "ancient confessions," Hagee asserted that the Word of God has been tried, found true, and sustained for thousands of years, so the solution to this problem is for the viewer to just "stop researching Christ and you start believing in Christ":
