Roy Moore: First Amendment 'Implicitly Recognizes God'

In a 2008 interview with far-right radio host Kevin Swanson, Roy Moore, now the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, attacked proponents of the separation of church and state, claiming that “the First Amendment itself implicitly recognizes God.”

Swanson asked Moore if the “kneejerk reaction to any reference to our Christian God, our Christian past, to the Bible” was “due to a minority of atheists that are making an enormous amount of noise.”

“It’s due to that,” Moore responded, “it’s also due to ignorance of our past, our history and our law. You know, right now there’s an exclusion of anything about God from our public life. Indeed, they say they cannot refer to God because of the First Amendment. But without the reference to God, without the acknowledgement that there is a God that gives us liberty, freedom of thought, there would be no First Amendment.

“In other words, the First Amendment itself implicitly recognizes God because of our history and our past.”

Barton: GOP Presidential Candidates Must Vow To Nominate SCOTUS Justices Who Will Overturn Gay Marriage Decision

On today's "WallBuilders Live" radio broadcast, David Barton declared that Christians cannot vote for any candidate in the GOP primary that will not pledge to nominate Supreme Court justices who will overturn the court's recent gay marriage ruling.

"If you get a different administration, you can get some different Supreme Court justices," Barton said. "How many times in the last 30 years has the Supreme Court overturned itself? It did that on nativity scenes, it did that on Ten Commandments monuments, it has done that on homosexuality, it has done that on a number of issues where it reverses itself. So you get some different justices in there and they'll vote to bring a case back before them on this issue and you may see a complete change as a result."

After Barton and co-host Rick Green lamented how different things would have been had Robert Bork been confirmed to the Supreme Court instead of Anthony Kennedy, Barton declared that Republican candidates "are lining up now and you need to be asking the question of every one, where are they on the marriage issue and where are they on judges and if you don't get the right answer, then find a different candidate."

GOP Rep: Democrats Must Apologize For Confederate Flag Or 'Shut Up'

Last week, the House descended into chaos after the GOP tried to strip language from an interior appropriations bill that would make sure that the Confederate flag isn’t displayed in National Parks. Rep. Ken Calvert, the California Republican who chairs the Interior subcommittee, added an amendment to the bill to remove the language at the behest of the House GOP leadership, which, according to Calvert, was acting “at the request of some southern Members of the Republican Caucus.”

However, Rep. Pete Olson, R-Texas, told conservative radio host Sam Malone last week that Democrats should “shut up” about the issue since 150 years ago many of the Confederate leaders came from the Democratic Party, which apparently hasn’t changed at all since then!

“The Democrats have no standing whatsoever to talk about that flag because that was the flag of their party during the Civil War, that was their battle flag, not our battle flag, our battle flag was the stars and stripes with President Lincoln,” Olson said. “They have no credibility. Just shut up. Apologize now.”

So there it is, a move to defend the Confederate flag spearheaded by Republican members “from Mississippi, Georgia, Texas, Alabama and Virginia” and then championed by the GOP leadership is really, Olson implies, the fault of the Democrats.

Roy Moore Urged Christians To Pull Kids Out Of Public Schools That Teach Evolution

In a 2006 interview with far-right radio host Kevin Swanson, Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore — who was then between his two stints on the state Supreme Court — lamented that public schools were teaching students about Islam and the theory of evolution, saying Christian parents couldn’t “justify sending their children to schools where they teach that they weren’t created in the image of God, that they evolved from monkeys.”

Moore also repeated his insistence that that Rep. Keith Ellison, who had just been elected as the first Muslim member of Congress, should not be allowed to take his seat in the House if he swore his oath of office on a Koran, saying that such events were leading to the “destruction of our society and our nation from within.”

Asked by Swanson about Ellison’s election, Moore responded that it was “a very bad indication of where we are going” and claimed that the congressman-elect was “known to associate with groups that actually oppose the Constitution.”

“This Ellison wants to swear on the Koran and basically swear that his law supersedes the Constitution of the United States, and he shouldn’t be seated,” he said.

Swanson agreed, saying, “If we begin to bring humanist socialists denying the existence of God or Muslims denying the word of God, the Bible, that is the foundation of this country, I think we’ve got tyranny to look forward to. I’m not sure if it’s the Muslim kind or the socialist kind, but either kind is bad.”

“Either kind is bad,” Moore replied, “and you’re right, when we start doing that, we’re basically looking at the destruction of our society and our nation from within. We’ve never been defeated by a foreign power and we’re asking to be defeated by our own actions here.”

Later in the interview, Moore lamented that Ellison’s election shows the American people’s “ignorance” of the divine origins of the U.S., as also exemplified by the fact that on Thanksgiving “they teach in school it’s thanksgiving to the Indians and not to God.”

Citing a lawsuit over one California elementary school’s Islamic studies program, Moore claimed,“California schools are teaching Islam in their schools. They’re teaching the kids how to pray, when to pray and how to go to Mecca, and that is going to spread across our country if we don’t wake up.”

“I think that we’ve got to recognize that the state’s role is not to teach our children,” he told Swanson. “That doesn’t mean you can’t send them there if you want, but if you do, you’ve got to justify that some way. And I don’t think Christians can actually justify sending their children to schools where they teach that they weren’t created in the image of God, that they evolved from monkeys.” (This, incidentally, is not actually what the theory of evolution teaches.)

When Swanson asked Moore what God thought of all of this, Moore responded, “I think that when He sees us welcoming in gods that are not the God upon which we were founded, we’ve got trouble.”

Citing a passage from Chronicles in which God tells Solomon that He will uproot his people and destroy their temple if they start worshiping other gods, Moore warned, “That’s what we’re doing and that’s what’s liable to happen if we continue to do it.”

Anti-Gay Preacher: Supreme Court Justices Blackmailed By Secret Gay Lovers

Yesterday, notorious “Stone Homos” pastor James David Manning appeared on “Trunews” for a “discussion about Barack Obama’s satanic assault on America’s morality.”

Not only did Manning spend time criticizing President Obama, but he also castigated the Supreme Court, arguing that “the Devil himself has written this opinion” on marriage equality.

He also told host Rick Wiles that “perhaps [Justice] Kennedy and many of those who are on the Supreme Court have had sodomite relations themselves” and were being blackmailed by their secret gay lovers: “They have got to support this sodomy, they’ve got to say it or otherwise they get exposed.”

Manning said people don’t realize that the court’s ruling on same-sex marriage will lead to the fall of America: “Fifty years from now people will look back at this period and say, ‘My God from Zion, how could a nation have fallen, how could the mighty have fallen so quickly and so far and so low?’”

“If there’s anybody still alive in the United States of America 50 years from now,” Wiles added.

The “Trunews” host explained that “this country is ripe to be overthrown” since “we no longer have the Lord’s protection” and “the Lord is no longer obligated to defend the United States of America,” warning that “there’s a great attitude adjustment coming to the United States very, very soon.”

Scarborough: Gay Parents Will Drive Their Children 'Into An Early Grave Called Hell'

Last night, Vision America's Rick Scarborough spoke at St. Andrew Baptist Church in Panama City, Florida, as part of the church's weekly "Spiritual Revolution - Reclaiming America" series, where he declared that the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision will kill this nation and warned that children will now be adopted by gay parents and wind up in Hell.

"The reason Satan is trying to destroy this country right now is because we send more missionaries, do more good than any nation in history," Scarborough thundered. "But that's all at stake right now because by the act of five unelected judges mandated something upon this country that, for the first time could kill it!"

Gay marriage is far worse than abortion, he explained, because Christians can simply "opt out" and refuse to have abortions but "when homosexuals begin lining up to adopt those children, they will literally disciple them into an early grave called Hell."

Rick Wiles: Christians Must Leave 'America's New Transvestite Army'

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles blasted the U.S. military yesterday for moving to end the ban on transgender service members, which Wiles pointed to as proof that America is turning into Babylon and “descending into the pit of filthy lewdness.”

Rather than serve alongside “transvestites,” Wiles said, “all Christians in the U.S. Armed Forces must now come out and all pastors must now announce to their congregations that young men and women in the churches should not enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces.”

“Shame on the U.S. military for capitulating to Barack Obama’s sexual perversion,” the “Trunews” host said. “History will shame them for their moral cowardliness.”

Wiles also warned of a nuclear war with Russia, which he says has plans to use military force to stop America’s “gay delirium.” And “of course those nuclear weapons will go up against America’s new transvestite army.”

Troy Newman: God Sending 'Weather Patterns' & Gay Rights As Judgment For Abortion

Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman joined Jim Schneider on VCY America’s “Crosstalk” program last week to discuss his efforts to shut down abortion providers, who he said are bringing God’s judgment down on America.

When a caller asked about God’s judgment for legal abortion, Newman responded that God doesn’t always make His displeasure known with “some sort of cataclysmic judgment, like the Flood” but often comes “one step at a time, one small step until the people groan so heavily and they return back to God and then they’re slowly restored.”

“If you look at what’s going on in America….we’ve had some terrible weather patterns lately, our economic clout has been taken away, the stock market is artificially inflated, there’s a lot of people that are predicting collapse there, the dollar is a fiat currency, is on shaky ground, our moral decay, our morals have decayed so far, the attack on Christians and people of faith,” he said.

“You know, it’s easier to be a homosexual in this country than it is to be a Christian, you’re a protected class there while we’re a minority. I just think that at some point, people, this country’s going to have to hit the reset button.”

Newman has previously blamed the drought in California on that state’s liberal abortion laws.

Another caller asked Newman to respond to “a lot of these religious denominations that affirm abortion” and “give ecclesiastical cover for this just outrageous and demonic activity.”

“The scripture is clear that those that handle the word of God and claim to be ministers of the Gospel will be held to a higher degree of judgment,” Newman responded. These religious denominations “that approve of abortion and homosexuality and other sins,” he said, would then receive especially harsh judgment from God.

“I don’t want to be on the Day of Judgment, period, but I definitely don’t want to be in their shoes,” he said.

Newman also answered the caller’s question about the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling, saying, “It’s time that we really stop giving so much weight and credence to the judges that are making up law.”

Newman said that, as a pastor, he would refuse to marry same-sex couples (something no pastor is being forced to do anyway), just as he is refusing to buy health insurance or pay a fine in defiance of the Supreme Court’s decision upholding the Affordable Care Act.

Tony Perkins: Gay Marriage Ruling Will Be 'The Downfall Of America'

On his “Washington Watch” program yesterday, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins discussed the plight of the local officials who he believes are being persecuted for simply refusing to obey the law on marriage equality.

Perkins denounced the Supreme Court for its marriage equality ruling and commended Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore for ordering judges in his state to defy an earlier federal court ruling striking down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage. Perkins wondered why more people, such as members of Congress, aren’t “challenging the Supreme Court.”

“It’s become where we have an oligarchy, where we have five unelected judges, lawyers in black robes, who have the ability to dictate law and policy for this country,” Perkins said, before warning that the supposed judicial tyranny seen in the marriage case “will be the downfall of America.”

Anti-Gay Clerk: Following The Law Is A Violation Of My Rights

It was only a few years ago that a local official in Louisiana drew national ire, and threats of dismissal from Gov. Bobby Jindal, for refusing to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple because he held the personal conviction that such marriages are wrong and undermine the wellbeing of children. Now, however, many Republicans are rallying around local officials who refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, similarly citing their personal convictions that such marriages are wrong.

One of these officials is Casey Davis, a county clerk in Kentucky who has boasted that he will defy the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage and deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Davis appeared on the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” program yesterday, where he tried to portray himself as the latest victim of anti-Christian persecution in America.

Davis told host Tony Perkins, who heads the Family Research Council and recently praised Davis, that his rights are “being violated” by being asked to perform his job responsibilities.

“It’s not just me being violated but it’s both side of the coin, both sides of this issue that’s at stake here, and that is our First Amendment rights,” Davis said. “We have religious freedom in this country and if we lose that we’ve lost everything.”

Anti-Immigration Activist Who Threatened Violence Suddenly Denounces Threats Of Violence Over Immigration

A debate over immigration on the Fox News program "The Five" got pretty heated last night, with Geraldo Rivera at one point telling Eric Bolling that it is a good thing that they are friends or "I'd knock you out right now."

Radical right-wing anti-immigration activst William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC quickly fired off an action alert demanding that "Geraldo Rivera be fired for threatening violence on air ":

Geraldo Rivera is a pro-amnesty and pro-illegal immigration Hispanic supremacist. He is also a projection racist who stays busy calling other people "racist" while hoping to distract from his own racism.

Now he has really gone too far by threatening another Fox News employee with violence due to his opinions against illegal immigration.

Please watch the video ... Then contact Fox News to demand Geraldo Rivera be fired for threatening violence on the air!

...

"Geraldo Rivera has made a direct threat of physical violence on live television seen by millions and that is behavior that no company or news agency should tolerate!" said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "If Geraldo can threaten violence without consequences from his employer or termination of employment, then Fox News Corporation is sending a message across America that threats of violence from illegal immigrant supporters like Geraldo are acceptable, and that could put the company in a legally actionable position should others follow Geraldo's style of violent outbursts."

We find it a little ironic that Gheen, of all people, would be decrying threats of violence over the issue of immigration considering that, back in 2011, he warned that President Obama was planning on using undocumented immigrants to wage war on "White America" and so the only response left was to engage in "illegal and violent" "extra-political activities":

We’re no longer referring to him as President Barack Obama, our national organization has made the decision and made the announcement we now refer to him as Dictator Barack Obama. That’s what he is. And basically at this point, if you’re looking for a peaceful, political recourse there really isn’t one that we can think of, and I’m really not sure what to tell people out there than I guess they need to make decisions soon to just accept whatever comes next or some type of extra-political activities that I can’t really talk about because they’re all illegal and violent.

Roy Moore Accepts Award From Radical Anti-Choice Group That Blamed 9/11 On Legal Abortion

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore has not been hiding his displeasure about the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down gay marriage bans, telling Alabama church audiences that the ruling will result in Christians being “persecuted” and has, at the behest of Satan, “destroyed the institution of God.”

Moore also brought his message on Saturday to a long-planned rally in Montgomery hosted by the radical anti-choice group Operation Save America, which descended on Alabama specifically to support the “poet, warrior, statesman” Moore’s fight against LGBT equality, abortion rights and the separation of church and state.

OSA, which was previously led by the Benham brothers’ father, Flip, is now under the direction of Rusty Lee Thomas, who memorably took to the streets of New York on the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks to announce that the terrorist attacks were divine retribution for legal abortion. According to the group, Moore’s chief of staff, Ben DuPre, is an important local contact, and DuPre introduced Moore at the Saturday event.

Moore told the audience that “America is under attack” as it moves away from God. "I'm sorry but this country was not founded on Muhammad. It was not founded on Buddha. It was not founded on secular humanism. It was founded on God,” he said.

AL.com reports that Moore addressed complaints about OSA’s radicalism, saying "You know, some told me 'you know they're a radical group.' I said yeah. They are radical for God.”

Thomas opened up the event by telling activists that in order to bring Heaven to Earth, they must end legal abortion and gay marriage, because there are “no babies being murdered in Heaven” and “in Heaven they’re not parading their sin like Sodom and trying to redefine marriage.”

Thomas then brought Moore up to the stage to accept a “Godly Statesman Award," after which he gathered the audience around the chief justice to pray that God would use him to “set an example for lesser magistrates throughout the United States of America that it’s time to say no to the federal beast!”

Jan Markell: Gay Marriage Turning US Into North Korea

American Family Radio's news director Fred Jackson filled in on "Focal Point" today for a vacationing Bryan Fischer, where he interviewed Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries about the recent Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage.

The ruling, Markell said, is evidence that Christians are now "exiles in our own country" and warned that Religious Right ministries could soon be stripped of their tax-exempt status and shut down by the government.

"We are truly exiles in our own country now," she stated. "The Bible foretold that the world would hate us for doing what is right and it also foretold that there would come a time when the generation would be called perilous ... and I think we're there."

"Righteous Christians are truly beyond grieved," she continued. "They can't believe that this has happened, not just in the lifetime, but within a relatively short period of time, within a five to seven year period of time, it just seems like not just the world has been turned over to evil, but it seems like the greatest nation that certainly in the last many hundreds of years has been turned over to a reprobate mind."

"We may be totally silenced," Markell warned. "Who knows? American Family Radio, Olive Tree Ministries, maybe we'll be shut down. It would not surprise me at all ... They talk like this in North Korea, in China but now we're talking like this in America and I can only consider that it's probably judgment on us because too much of America has gone astray spiritually."

Scott Walker Says His Presidential Bid Is 'God's Plan'

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who announced his presidential bid on Twitter this morning and will have a launch event later today in Waukesha, has sent an email to activists declaring that his presidential run “is God’s plan for me.”

“My relationship with God drives every major decision in my life,” starts the note, which is clearly designed to appeal to Religious Right voters who make up a major part of the GOP base vote, particularly in the early primary states Iowa and South Carolina.

The letter goes on to talk about Walker’s faith as “the guiding force of my life in both politics and in private” and promotes opposition to reproductive choice and marriage equality. “A lifelong supporter of the pro-life movement, my work defending the unborn goes back to my college days where I was a leader of Marquette Students for Life,” he writes, bragging about signing into law new restrictions on access to abortion and pledging to do the same as president. He calls the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision a “grave mistake” and calls for a constitutional amendment to overturn it. And he pledges to nominate Supreme Court justices who share his approach to the Constitution.

“Our country is at a crossroads and we need a proven conservative leader who is not afraid to fight for what is right -- even when it’s not politically expedient,” Walker says. “My decisions are guided by my relationship with God -- not by what might win me a few votes.”

Among those decisions are Walker’s moves to savage public education in his new budget.

The full letter follows:

 

Peter,

My relationship with God drives every major decision in my life. Each day I pray and then take time to read from the Bible and from a devotional named Jesus Calling.

As you can imagine, the months leading up to my announcement that I would run for President of the United States were filled with a lot of prayer and soul searching.

Here’s why: I needed to be certain that running was God’s calling -- not just man’s calling. I am certain: This is God’s plan for me and I am humbled to be a candidate for President of the United States.

Now, it is up to the voters to decide who will win the election. If you support my conservative campaign, please join my team right now with $10, $35, $50, $100, or even $250 today.

As the son of a Baptist preacher, my faith comes first. It is the guiding force of my life both in politics and in private. For example, I believe in the sanctity of life. I believe in the covenant of marriage. I believe in strong families. I believe in protecting religious liberties. And I believe these things are worth fighting for -- and I have.

A lifelong supporter of the pro-life movement, my work defending the unborn goes back to my college days where I was a leader of Marquette Students for Life. As a state lawmaker, I helped write and pass legislation banning the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion. As Governor of Wisconsin, I prohibited abortion from being covered by Wisconsin health plans in a health insurance exchange, signed an ultrasound bill into law, and defunded Planned Parenthood while maintaining health services for women throughout Wisconsin.

Earlier this year, I called for legislation to protect unborn children once they can feel pain at five months. The members of the State Legislature just passed the bill and I will sign it into law next week. Yet another pro-life victory here in Wisconsin!

If elected President, I would be honored to sign similar legislation at the federal level. I was raised to believe in the sanctity of life and I will always fight to protect it.

Please stand with me today to help elect a pro-life President.

Our conservative values were handed a big blow with the recent Supreme Court ruling. Let me be very clear: this decision was a grave mistake. Five unelected judges took it upon themselves to take that responsibility away from the states and redefine the institution of marriage.

In 2006, I voted to amend my state constitution to protect the institution of marriage because I believe that marriage is between one man and one woman.

I believe that the states have the right to define marriage.

To protect this right, I support an amendment to the United States Constitution to reaffirm the ability of the states to continue to define marriage.

Going forward, we need to focus our attention on protecting the religious rights of Americans. Our U.S. Constitution calls for freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. The founders of this exceptional country took religious freedom very seriously and we must redouble our efforts to protect these freedoms today.

Peter, I have been a tireless advocate for religious liberty. And my state’s families and children are better off because of our pro-life, pro-family agenda that promotes life, freedom, and opportunity.

As President, I will stand up for these same values. And I will appoint men and women to the Court who will faithfully uphold the Constitution -- without injecting their own political agendas into legal matters.

Our country is at a crossroads and we need a proven conservative leader who is not afraid to fight for what is right -- even when it’s not politically expedient. My decisions are guided by my relationship with God -- not by what might win me a few votes.

I am proud to have earned the early support of conservative and religious activists across the country and hope to earn your support today. Visit here to become a leader of our conservative team with a contribution of $10, $35, $50, $100, $250, or whatever amount is right for you.

Every day I pray that our best days of peace, prosperity, and freedom are ahead of us. As President, I will uphold the traditional values that have made our country great, but I need your help to win.

Your enthusiastic support will help us build much-needed momentum in these early weeks as we take our conservative message to voters across the country.

God bless you and God bless America,

Scott Walker

 

Alex Jones: Endgame Of LGBT Movement Is 'An Asexual Humanoid' And Human Extermination

Alex Jones’s InfoWars network posted a video clip today of Jones discussing same-sex marriage, which Jones said he rarely talks about because he considers it a “distraction.”

However, Jones said that he is worried about the attempt to “sexualize children” with books like “Heather Has Two Mommies.” This effort to “target children,” Jones said, represents the “space-cult, suicide-cult, exterminism, craziness” of the United Nations and global elites.

“The eugenics, trans-humanist cult wants to confuse the general species ahead of rendering us down and removing us,” he said. “The plan is an asexual humanoid, even if they decide to keep us around, stated in hundreds of textbooks.”

Anti-Gay Activist: Conservatives Were Tricked Into Supporting Contraception Access, Just Like Gay Marriage

Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, president and founder of the Ruth Institute, a former National Organization for Marriage affiliate, joined Patrick Coffin of “Catholic Answers Live” on June 26th to discuss the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling.

Morse agreed with a caller who said he could envision in the future “a judge issuing a court order to a priest that they are to marry a homosexual couple within the church.”

After joking with Coffin that President Obama promised Christians that this would not happen, Morse warned that this situation is just “another one of the dominoes that is likely to fall.”

“And I want to just point out,” Morse continued, “this is the whole pattern of the Sexual Revolution.” She recalled how Christians were tricked 50 years ago into agreeing to widespread contraceptive access when proponents argued “that contraceptives will only be used by married couples who need to space their births because of serious health reasons.”

However, it “never occurred” to contraceptive proponents, she said, that eventually “we’d be giving condoms to fourth graders.”

Marriage equality, she said, fits into this same pattern of progressives coming “up with one little thing that seems so harmless” and telling conservatives that they’re “so mean to not give us what we want.”

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.

Rep. Robert Pittenger's 'Primary Mission' In Congress Is To Be 'An Emissary For Christ'

Last week, Rep. Robert Pittenger joined several of his fellow members of Congress, such as Trent Franks and Louie Gohmert, as well as Religious Right activists "Coach" Dave Daubenmire, E.W. Jackson, and others in speaking at a week-long revival meeting in Washington, D.C., called "Celebrate America," organized by televangelist and "Holy Laughter" preacher Rodney Howard-Browne.

Pittenger told the audience that his "primary mission" as a member of Congress is to spread the Gospel of Christ and that every issue of public policy is founded on the "reality of Christ."

"The most important message that needs to be heard in this city is the Gospel and love of Christ," Pittenger said, adding that people who hold different political views "just don't know my Savior."

"That's my primary mission as a member of Congress," the North Carolina Republican said. "Yes, to serve my constituents, to serve my region, and my state, and my country. But we're here as emissaries for Christ."

Pittenger went on to say that he is praying for President Obama because "the love of Christ  transforms everything we do and think and believe."

"I don't care what issue we work on in public policy and legislation," he said, "it all comes down to the reality of Christ."

 

Dolores Huerta Speaks Out Against Scott Walker’s Record and Policies

As Scott Walker prepares to officially announce that he’s running for president, civil rights leader and People For the American Way board member Dolores Huerta released the following statement criticizing Walker’s record and policy positions:

“Scott Walker has proven himself to be a terrible governor of Wisconsin, and a Walker presidency would be even worse for Latinos and for our nation as a whole.

“As governor, he gutted education funding, lied to voters about his anti-choice stances, and attacked workers’ rights. Now he’s staked out a far-right position on immigration. He wants to restrict even legal immigration and opposes any path to legalization for undocumented immigrants, much less citizenship. Allowing him to bring his extreme agenda to the Oval Office would be devastating.”

As Governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker stripped union workers of collective bargaining rights, endangering their safety and making it more difficult to negotiate for higher wages. Wisconsin lagged in job growth under Walker’s watch, ranking 9th out of 10 states in the Midwest. He’s repeatedly attacked the Affordable Care Act, efforts to raise the minimum wage, and equal pay legislation. He now supports a 20-week abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest despite his promise to voters that he would oppose such restrictions. After the Supreme Court ruled that marriage equality is the law of the land, Walker called for a constitutional amendment that would allow bans on same-sex marriage.

Walker has insisted that the over 11 million undocumented people in our country should return to their country of origin, and aligned himself with extreme Senators like Jeff Sessions (R-AL) by calling for restrictions on legal immigration. Walker has said he would sign a bill similar to the extreme anti-immigrant SB 1070 in Arizona, and he supports ending DACA and DAPA, essential programs that protect DREAMers and families from deportation.

Dolores Huerta Habla en Contra el Historial y las Políticas de Scott Walker

Mientras Scott Walker se prepara para anunciar formalmente su postulación a la presidencia, la líder pro derechos civiles e integrante de la junta directiva para People For the American Way Dolores Huerta hizo las siguientes declaraciones criticando el historial y las políticas de Scott Walker:

“Scott Walker ha demostrado ser un terrible gobernador de Wisconsin, y una presidencia de Walker sería peor para Latinos y para nuestra nación.”

“Como gobernador, cortó fondos para la educación, les mintió a los votantes sobre su postura en cuanto al acceso al aborto, y atacó a los derechos de los trabajadores. Ahora ha planteado una posición extremista sobre la inmigración. Walker quiere restringir la inmigración legal a este país y se opone a cualquier tipo de legalización para inmigrantes indocumentados, y mucho menos a un paso a la ciudadanía. Permitirle a Walker a que  lleve su agenda extrema a la oficina oval sería un golpe tremendo para nuestra comunidad.”

Como gobernador de Wisconsin Scott Walker despojó a los trabajadores sindicalizados de sus derechos a la negociación colectiva, poniendo en peligro su seguridad y haciendo más difícil el poder negociar por salarios más altos. Bajo Walker, Wisconsin se quedó atrás en el crecimiento de empleo, con el segundo crecimiento más bajo de los 10 estados del medio oeste. Walker ha atacado repetidamente a la Ley de Cuidado de Salud Asequible (Affordable Care Act), los esfuerzos para aumentar el salario mínimo, y legislaciones para la igualdad salarial. Ahora él apoya la prohibición de un aborto a las 20 semanas sin excepciones para víctimas de violación o incesto, a pesar de su promesa a los votantes que se opondría a legislaciones de este tipo. Y después de que la Corte Suprema dictaminó que la igualdad del matrimonio es la ley de la tierra, Walker hizo un llamado para una enmienda constitucional que permitiría la prohibir los matrimonios del mismo sexo.

Walker ha insistido en que más de 11 millones de personas indocumentadas en nuestro país deberían regresar a su país de origen, y se ha alineado con los senadores extremos como Jeff Sessions (R-AL) haciendo un llamado para restringir la inmigración legal. Walker ha dicho que firmaría un proyecto de ley similar a la ley anti-inmigrante SB 1070 en Arizona, y él terminaría DACA y DAPA, programas esenciales que protegen a DREAMers y familias inmigrantes de la deportación.
