Tony Perkins Says Gay Rights Advocates Want Anti-Christian Holocaust, Will 'Start Rolling Out The Boxcars'

After Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission unanimously upheld a judge’s finding that a baker unlawfully discriminated against gay customers, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins invited the baker’s attorney, Nicolle Martin of Alliance Defending Freedom, to discuss the case yesterday on “Washington Watch.”

Perkins reacted to the discrimination case by offering a comparison to the Holocaust: “I’m beginning to think, are re-education camps next? When are they going to start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians?”

“I guarantee that we are going to continue to see the witch hunt,” Martin said.

Gordon Klingenschmitt's Interesting Defense Of Tax Exemption For Clergy & Churches

Under current tax law, members of the clergy are entitled to receive a housing allowance upon which they are not required to pay taxes. This so called "parsonage allowance" allows clergy members to receive thousands of dollars per year from their church to be used to pay for their housing but this money is not classified as part of their salary and is thus exempt from taxation.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has filed suit over this practice, arguing that churches and clergy are receiving special treatment that is not available to other non-profit institutions and Gordon Klingenschmitt, not surprisingly, is vehemently opposed to FFRF's effort to end this exemption, arguing on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today that it is not fair to make members of the clergy "pay extra taxes" by ending this practice.

As Klingenschmitt sees it, no churches should be required to pay taxes because the donations it receives have already been taxed once when the money was first earned by the people who donated it.

"Everyone who goes to church and has a job," he explained, "already paid their taxes back home on their income and then they gave whatever was left over to the church. So should the church then have to pay taxes on top of that?"

By the same token, Klingenschmitt says, a pastor who receives thousands of dollars from the church to pay for housing should also not be required to pay taxes on that money because the pastor has already paid taxes on his or her salary.

"Because [the housing allowance] is still funded by the church, it should not be double taxed," Klingenschmitt argued, "since the pastor already paid his income taxes as an employee of the church ... That doesn't mean he ought to pay extra taxes for the simple fact of living in a church-owned or church-rented property":

Of course, the entire point is that most people pay taxes on their salary and then have to use that salary to pay for their housing, but members of the clergy receive a salary on which they pay taxes and then thousands of dollars in the form of a housing allowance upon which they don't.  But to Klingenschmitt, not giving clergy members this tax-free allowance amounts to double taxation.

Gina Miller Asks God To 'Stop Barack Obama' Before He Destroys America

Religious Right pundit Gina Miller writes in BarbWire today that President Obama is “a lawless enemy of the United States” and “part of God’s judgment on us.”

Before likening Obama to Adolf Hitler, Miller calls on God to stop the president: “Who will stop Barack Obama? Can he be stopped? I don’t believe he can, unless the Lord Himself stops him.”

How can anyone not see that Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is an enemy of the United States? Many of us have been saying this for years now, because the signs are evident that this man does not like America and is actively working to tear down our constitutional foundations, our freedoms, our military, our energy sector, our borders, our medical and health insurance systems and American way of life. He has broken our laws and spit on the limits of his power at every turn, and yet the despicable media and his fellow-traveling, commie Democrats have spun and lied, “justifying” almost everything he and his administration have done. Where are the Republicans? I believe they are scared to death of him (those who aren’t leftist globalists themselves, anyway).



The American people understand that what Obama did is a purely evil, illegal thing, unleashing remorseless murderers on the world, while rescuing a likely Army deserter. What the American people understand is that Obama is a lawless enemy of the United States who deserves impeachment and removal from office, at the very least. With his treasonous actions, he is a clear and present danger to this nation and its people. He is a liar through and through, and although he may not understand how deeply he is hated by most of the American people, I’m certain he couldn’t care less about it.



Who will stop Barack Obama? Can he be stopped? I don’t believe he can, unless the Lord Himself stops him.

On the epigraph page before the Foreword of William Shirer’s 1959 book, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, is a quote from Field Marshal Walther von Brauchitsch, Commander in Chief of the German Army from 1938 to 1941:

Hitler was the fate of Germany and this fate could not be stayed.

I believe the same is true of Barack Hussein Obama and the United States of America. The hideous departure of American society from a right and true moral foundation based on God’s precepts has brought us to where we are today, with social ills abounding. The explosion of sin in America, the cultivation of a piggish, indolent entitlement mentality, the embrace of violence-as-entertainment, the bloody ocean of baby-killing, the aggressive celebration of sodomy and the disdain for Christian wisdom and moderation have earned us God’s judgment on this cancerous nation. Obama and the many other thoroughly corrupt leaders are part of God’s judgment on us. We brought this on ourselves.

Dark and darker days are ahead.

Bryan Fischer Can't Seem To Keep His Story Straight

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer said that while he has great respect for Ben Carson, he is not sure that Carson has the toughness needed to withstand the relentless onslaught of attacks and lies he will face if he decides to run for president.

And Fischer was speaking from experience, he said, "because virtually everything I say that the Left gets hold of they twist, they distort it, they try to create the impression that I have said something different from what I have said." This has become so routine that Fischer doesn't even bother trying to correct the record any more since people on the Left "don't care if they have misrepresented you, misconstrued what you've said; they're doing that intentionally, that's what they want to do because they want to take what do and twist it and turn it in a way to make you look as bad as humanly possible."

This comes as news to us, especially since probably 99% of the video clips featuring Fischer were first posted on this blog which, on multiple occasions, Fischer has praised for helping him to "get the word out" by posting clips that feature "exactly the soundbite that I want them to use":

Of course, by posting these clips of him saying two diametrically opposed things, we are probably guilty of creating the impression that Fischer has said something different from what he said.

Religious Right's Persecution Narrative Gains Traction, Even As Most Americans Oppose Them On Policy

Polling released this week by the Public Religion Research Institute underscores the success that the Right has had in pushing its religious persecution narrative, even as majorities of Americans support the policies that the Right claims are threatening religious liberty.

PRRI finds that a “majority (54%) of Americans believe that the right of religious liberty is being threatened in America today,” including 80 percent of Republicans and 83 percent of white evangelical Protestants.

But at the same time, large majorities support the very policies that the Right is claiming are persecuting people of faith, including the Affordable Care Act’s contraception coverage mandate and LGBT nondiscrimination policies.

PRRI found that 61 percent of Americans believe that publicly-held corporations should “be required to provide their employees with health insurance that includes contraception at no cost” and that smaller majorities support the same requirement for privately-held corporations, small businesses, and even religiously-affiliated institutions.

What’s more, PRRI reports that “Americans overwhelming reject the notion that small business owners should be allowed to refuse to provide services or goods to individuals because they are gay or lesbian, atheist, Jewish or black, even if doing so would violate the owners’ religious beliefs.”

Only 16 percent wanted to allow small businesses to refuse services to gays and lesbians, only slightly more than the 10 percent who still think businesses should be allowed to refuse service to black people because of their race.

The results of PRRI’s research show the enormous success that the Religious Right is having in building its narrative of religious persecution, even as the public opposes its actual policy goals.

Tea Party Nation Tells Members It Is Time To 'Impeach And Arrest The Tyrant King Obama'

Tea Party Nation today emailed members a petition called “IMPEACH AND ARREST THE TYRANT KING OBAMA!!,” which is about as over-the-top as you would expect it to be.

The time has come to DEMAND the IMMEDIATE ARREST and PROSECUTION of one BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA upon his willful and transgression of 18 U.S. Code § 2339A.

I hereby call on all members of the house and the senate to begin impeachment proceeding against Barack Hussein Obama and for Andrew B. “Drew” Willison, the current Senate Seargent [sic] at Arms to issue and execute an arrest warrant, taking the president, Barack Hussein Obama into custody.

Barack Hussein Obama is in direct violation of 18 U.S. Code § 2339A – Providing material support to terroristsas a result of the removal of five Taliban GITMO detained terrorists and the transfer OF them to the government of Qatar where they, according to the specified arrangement negotiated BY Obama that they only be keep from traveling for a period of one year.

The petition goes on to say that Obama “should face a minimum of 15 years” in prison.

Tom DeLay Wants House Investigation Into Obama's 'Connections To Radical Islamists,' Suggests Impeachment

Yesterday, ex-House GOP leader Tom DeLay, who is still in court fighting convictions for money laundering and conspiracy, accused President Obama of breaking the law with his deal to release Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

“This president is undermining the rule of law and the judiciary committee ought to start hearings on it,” DeLay said on his Washington Times radio program, adding that the House may also consider impeaching Obama to serve as a “warning to future presidents” about “undermining the rule of law.”

He also called for a House investigation into Obama’s purported “connections to radical Islamists” and his “leaning and having too much sympathy for radical Islamists.”

DeLay follows in the footsteps of Oliver North, a commentator who also may not have been in the best position to accuse the president of committing a crime.

William Gheen Robocall Warns South Carolina & Virginia Voters That Immigrants Will Take Their Jobs, Welfare And Votes

Updated

Despite his group’s perpetual financial woes, William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC has managed to scrape together enough funds to deluge 122,000 households in South Carolina and Virginia with a robocall attacking Rep. Eric Cantor and Sen. Lindsey Graham for supporting immigration reform, Brietbart reports today.

“Remember that a vote for Cantor or Graham is a vote for tens of millions of illegal immigrants to get amnesty, jobs, welfare payments and a vote with or against you in future elections. Remember who to thank for amnesty. Thank Eric Cantor and Lindsey Graham” Gheen says in the robocall, which he tells Breitbart will reach 26,000 Republican households Cantor’s Virginia district and 96,000 in South Carolina.

Cantor, meanwhile, hasn’t explicitly endorsed immigration reform and is actuallyfundraising off the claim that he blocked reform from moving forward in Congress.

Gheen is one of the most extreme figures in the anti-immigrant movement, who has warned of a violent revolution if the immigrant “invasion” can’t be stopped and said that immigration reform would amount to “national rape.”

UPDATE: It looks like Gheen’s South Carolina calls violate state law, which of course gives Gheen another opportunity for self-aggrandizement. The State reports:

State law bans automatically dialed calls that deliver unsolicited, prerecorded consumer or political messages without assistance of a live operator, S.C. Republican Party chairman Matt Moore said in a memo sent out last month as a reminder to campaigns.

Graham’s campaign spokesman, Tate Zeigler, said of the automated calls, “We don't do illegal robo calls.”

Americans for Legal Immigration president William Gheen said his robo-calls comply with federal law. Gheen was not familiar with S.C. law. After reading it, he said he would turn himself in if any prosecutor decided to charge him.

He also said he would beat any charges.

“I feel quite confident in my ability to defeat this in a court of law,” Gheen said, adding he is defending his right to engage in political speech. “For our republic to function, people need to be able to communicate with voters.”

Gheen said he has one request for anyone who plans to arrest him: “The only thing I ask is that they do it before Election Day, please."

UPDATE II: Gheen has issued a press release hyping his own martyrdom, even though there has been no indication that he will even be charged under the rarely-enforced South Carolina law:

The President of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC William Gheen is facing possible charges and arrest after bumping into a unique, obscure, and unenforced state law banning automated campaign calls that are designed to warn South Carolina and Virginia voters about how the immigration reform amnesty plans of Senator Lindsey Graham and Congressman Eric Cantor will affect them.

...

"I know that nobody likes robo-calls, but isn't it ironic that I might be charged for violating an obscure unenforced state law curtailing freedoms of political speech while more than 12 million illegal immigrants flagrantly violate numerous federal laws designed to protect Americans from real damages?" said William Gheen of ALIPAC. "A few seconds of an annoying call is nothing compared to the millions of devastated American lives that are a result of Lindsey Graham's and Eric Cantor's support for amnesty for illegals."

Glenn Beck Is A Paragon Of Consistency: 'We Need To Live Side By Side'

Upset by the news that a Christian bakery in Colorado has decided to stop offering wedding cakes rather than provide cakes to gay couples in compliance with the state's anti-discrimination law, Glenn Beck wondered why we all can't just get along and learn to live together.

"We must, in the end, be able to live side by side," Beck said in defending the baker's right to refuse to serve gay customers. "We are dividing ourselves in every possible way and it's being done intentionally. Nope, the Republicans have to live over here, the conservatives over here and the liberals and then the progressives, and then we have the gay people who live over here and the straight people who live over here and these people can run businesses and these people can't."

"We need to live side by side," Beck preached. "Diversity is actually a good thing."

Allow us to remind everyone that this is the same Glenn Beck who, just last year, laid out his grandiose vision for a massive $2 billion libertarian compound called Independence Park in which only like-minded people would be allowed to live and only like-minded businesses could operate.

This is also the same Glenn Beck who, the day after President Obama was re-elected, openly encouraged his listeners to buy farmland and to literally move away from their neighbors if they did not share their values and "find a place where you are surrounded by like-minded people" by looking "at the maps on how counties voted":

Franklin Graham Warns Hollywood And 'Spirit Of Anti-Christ' In Government Are Bringing About The End Times

Franklin Graham sat down with TBN host Jan Crouch last week to discuss how “we are on the edge” of the End Times.

Graham cited America’s supposed persecution of Christians, Hollywood’s “demonization of people of faith” that is “poisoning the minds of people against the church,” and “the spirit of Anti-Christ at the government level” as proof that we are experiencing the Last Days.

Graham previously said that members of the Obama administration “are anti-Christ in what they say and what they do.”

Kris Kobach: Military Would 'Put Aside' Its High Standards By Admitting DREAMers

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, an influential activist against voting rights and immigration reform, last week ripped into a Republican-authored proposal to allow undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children to join the military, saying that allowing DREAMers to serve would mean that the military’s “high standards will have to be put aside” to admit “lawbreakers.”

Speaking on his weekly broadcast on Kansas City’s KCMO on May 25, Kobach said of DREAMers, “This is a person who is not a U.S. citizen and whose, most likely, first act upon entering the United States was to commit a crime of entering illegally. So, this is a person we want to serve in the U.S. military? Normally, you don’t put lawbreakers into the U.S. military.”

“The U.S. military has very high standards,” he added. “I guess those high standards will have to be put aside because the political agenda of the Obama White House is to have pictures of illegal aliens serving in the military in large numbers and they don’t have those pictures now.”

Anne Paulk: Homosexuality Is Like Being Stuck In A 'Roach Motel'

Right-wing radio broadcaster Linda Harvey brought “ex-gay” activist Anne Paulk on the air this past weekend to discuss the impermanence of being or identifying as LGBT.

A repeat guest on the “Mission: America” program, Paulk spent half an hour hawking the work of her organization, Restored Hope Network, which is a collection of interdenominational ministries that promote “conversion therapy.”

Harvey was all ears as Paulk charged that LGBT people are responsible for “a great deal of grief” in their families, and asserted that the decision to come out of the closet “is like a death knell of all the future hopes of a parent.”

Paulk then compared identifying as gay to being trapped in a “roach motel,” which might lead people to “consider suicide.”

Unfortunately, not everyone could be successfully “saved” by the Restored Hope Network.

LaBarbera: 'Masculine Men Do Not Have Sex With Other Men'

Peter LaBarbera was recently interviewed by a former Infowars reporter named David Ortiz who asserted that acceptance of homosexuality represents "the death of the American male because you cannot be a masculine nation and support homosexuality."

Ortiz smartly pointed out that if society is going to embrace "moral relativism" on this issue, then "why can't a man sexually relieve himself next to you on a bus stop as long as he's not groaning, as long as he cleans up after himself?"

Sadly, LaBarbera did not answer this intriguing question but chose instead of focus on the idea that one cannot be gay and also masculine, declaring that gay men who dress in leather are displaying "faux masculinity" in an attempt to compensate for their inherent lack of masculinity.

"Tough guy homosexuality masculinity is not the real deal," LaBarbera asserted. "Masculine men do not have sex with other men":

The 5 Craziest Planks In Draft Texas GOP Platform: Ban Morning After Pill, Ending Direct Election Of Senators, Defunding ACORN

According to a draft party platform obtained by the Houston Chronicle, the Texas Republican Party is ready to support a sweeping right-wing agenda with planks related to the “Benghazi cover up,” the elimination of the minimum wage and “the myth of separation of church and state.”

Voting

Not only does the draft platform advocate for the abolition of the Federal Reserve, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Transportation Security Administration and the Departments of Education and Energy, but it also calls for an end to the direct election of U.S. Senators:

Full Repeal of the 17th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution: Return the appointment of U.S. Senators by the State Legislatures.

While the state GOP wants Texas voters to lose their right to elect their U.S. senators, the party does on the other hand “support our right to select our judges by direct vote.”

The party also wants to make it more difficult to register to vote and urges Congress to repeal the Voting Rights Act:

Voter registration: We support restoring integrity to the voter registration rolls and Registration reducing voter fraud. We support repeal of all Motor Voter laws; re-registering voters every four years; requiring photo ID of all registrants; proof of residency and citizenship, along with voter registration application; retention of the 30-day registration deadline; and requiring that a list of certified deaths be provided to the election administrator in order that the names of deceased voters be removed from the list of registered voters.

VRA: We urge that the Voter [sic] Rights Act of 1965 codified and updated in 1973 be repealed and not reauthorized.

Science And Education

The draft platform also targets schools, calling evolution a “controversial theory” that should be challenged in the classroom, demanding that schools restrict access to “community organizers” and encouraging schools to embrace “subjects with emphasis on the Judeo-Christian principles upon which America was founded and which form the basis of America’s legal, political and economic systems.”

The platform also includes climate change denial: “While we all strive to be good stewards of the earth, 'climate change' is a political agenda which attempts to control every aspect of our lives. We urge government at all levels to ignore any plea for money to fund global climate change or ‘climate justice’ initiatives.”

The draft describes Agenda 21, a nonbinding United Nations agreement on sustainable development, as a threat to America and calls for “the withdrawal of the United States from the United Nations and the removal of U.N. headquarters from United States soil.”

Social Issues

Along with supporting “reparative therapy and treatment to patients who are seeking escape from the homosexual lifestyle,” the state party also wants to repeal Texas’ hate-crimes statute (or at least its “sexual orientation category”), block non-discrimination laws and seeks a “prohibition of the manufacturing and sale of abortifacients (e.g. morning after pill).”

The draft also calls for bans on “any form of reparation” and Sharia law, and limits to data gathering by the U.S. Census. It opposes “the use of Radio Frequency Identification Chips (RFID) on humans,” while reaffirming opposition to “any direct financial support of special interest organizations, such as ACORN and the ACLU, by any level of government.” ACORN, of course, hasn’t existed since 2010.

Guns

Unsurprisingly, the Texas GOP believes the state should be able to ignore federal gun laws:

All federal acts, laws, executive orders, and court orders which restrict or infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms shall be invalid in Texas, not be recognized by Texas, shall be specifically rejected by Texas, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in Texas.

Just to clarify that they mean business, the party supports “the establishment and maintenance of a volunteer Constitutional State Militia with assistance from County Sheriffs.”

Vaccinations

To cap it off, Texas Republicans also have an anti-vaccination stance:

Immunizations: All adult citizens should have the legal right to conscientiously choose which vaccines are administered to themselves, or their minor children, without penalty for refusing a vaccine. We oppose any effort by any authority to mandate such vaccines or any medical database that would contain personal records of citizens without their consent.

Beck: God Prompted Me To Investigate Van Jones

On his radio program yesterday, Glenn Beck raised the alarm about reports that the Department of Justice will relaunch a task force responsible for investigating threats posed by domestic terrorism, saying that while he has absolutely no evidence to justify his concern at the moment, he does have a gut feeling that it is very dangerous.

And we can trust his gut feeling about this, Beck reminded his viewers, because he had the same gut feeling about Van Jones and was prompted by God to begin investigating him after hearing his name mentioned in a staff meeting.

"I really don't know how we figured out Van Jones," Beck said. "That was not from man, I really don't think."

Beck says he simply heard Jones' name and somehow immediately knew to instruct his staff begin to investigate Jones and ties to Hurricane Katrina, which led to Beck's amazing discovery that Jones and ACORN were responsible for the failure of the levees in New Orleans during the hurricane in order to wipe out all the records and cover up their massive corruption.

Obviously, given that record of accuracy, we should all be very alarmed by Beck's gut feeling about these new reports as well:

Texas GOP Embraces Discredited Ex-Gay Therapy

We reported back in April that Eagle Forum, a staunchly anti-gay Religious Right group, announced that it would pressure the Texas GOP to back ex-gay therapy and other anti-gay measures in its party platform.

The Texas GOP convention, which banned conservative gay rights groups from participating, appears to have agreed on including ex-gay advocacy as part of its platform, according to a draft of the platform obtained by the Houston Chronicle:

We support the definition of marriage as a God-ordained, legal and moral commitment only between a natural man and a natural woman.

We support withholding jurisdiction from the Federal Courts in cases involving family law, especially any changes in the definition of marriage.



We oppose the assault on marriage by judicial activists.



Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable alternative lifestyle, in public policy, nor should family be redefined to include homosexual couples. We believe there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior, regardless of state of origin.

Additionally, we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values. We recognize the legitimacy and value of counseling which offers reparative therapy and treatment to patients who are seeking escape from the homosexual lifestyle. No laws or executive orders shall be imposed to limit or restrict access to this type of therapy. (emphasis added)

Fischer: Bergdahl Release Offers More Proof Obama 'Is Secretly A Muslim'

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer said the deal to release Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl provides further evidence that President Obama "is secretly a Muslim."

Asserting that Obama insisted on releasing five members of the Taliban as part of the exchange deal because he is constantly attempting to assist radical Islam all over the world, Fischer asserted that Obama's "face lit up like a Christmas tree" when Bergdahl's father briefly spoke in Arabic at the White House, which is another reason to believe that Obama is actually a Muslim.

"I've had Washington insiders tell me everyone in D.C. believes that secretly he is a Muslim," Fischer said, "and when President Obama does stuff like this, it starts making that explanation easier and easier to believe":

Mike Huckabee Marks Tiananmen Square Protests By Comparing US To Communist China

Mike Huckabee, who back in April remarked that people in North Korea have more freedoms than Americans, today marked the anniversary of the Chinese government’s violent suppression of the pro-democracy Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 by alleging that the United States is turning into Communist China.

In an interview on Newsmax TV, Huckabee insisted that “China is becoming more like the United States used to be and the United States is becoming more like China used to be.”

“We’re getting to the place where our government is controlling much more of what we say, what we think, what we do and they’re invading our privacy,” he said. “That ought to scare the daylights out of Americans.”

Chris Christie To Join Ralph Reed Summit To Dispel Moderate 'Myth'

Today, Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition announced that Gov. Chris Christie will speak at its “Road to Majority” conference this month, where perhaps Reed can offer the embattled governor advice on how to downplay scandals.

But the director of the New Jersey Faith and Freedom Coalition, Larry Cirignano, doesn’t seem to be much of a fan of his state’s governor.

On his Facebook page, Cirignano has posted columns attacking Christie from the right, including articles titled “Chris Christie dooms NJ to judicial activism and himself to obscurity” and “Chris Christie’s court pick has a pro-choice, anti-free press record,” which criticizes the governor for having “rolled over” on nominees for the Supreme Court.

Cirignano also shared a post “exposing ‘Republican’ Christie” as a secret Democrat for backing a “radical pro-abortion and pro-gun control” judicial nominee.

Last year, Christie was accused of snubbing the “Road to Majority” summit to attend a Clinton Global Initiative event.

Right-wing pundits have expressed outrage and disgust over Christie’s decision to sign a law banning ex-gay therapy for minors, even linking it to the bridge scandal, and lashed out at the governor for declining to appeal a court ruling in favor of marriage equality and appointing a Muslim-American to a judgeship.

At CPAC earlier this year, Christie emphasized his anti-choice stances and told the Christian Broadcasting Network that it is a “myth” that he is a moderate.

FL Legislator Says Obama's Election 'Is An Indictment Of Our Educational System In This Country'

Infuriated by the state Department of Education's approval of a textbook that he felt was baised in favor of Islam, Florida state Sen. Alan Hays introduced legislation giving local school districts the power to choose their own textbooks. 

The legislation was signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott last month and today Hays was the guest on "WallBuilders Live" to discuss his effort where he declared that the election of President Barack Obama is proof positive that our entire educational system is fundamentally broken.

Obama's election, Hays said, "is an indictment of our educational system in this country," explaining that "it's because our students have not been properly educated that somebody with that kind of resume could even be considered a candidate, much less elected."

"It's an embarrassment to all of us," Hays concluded and host Rick Green completely agreed, saying that Obama's election "shows that we've dumbed down the education system to the point that our people do not now know to measure a candidate against the values upon which a constitutional republic can survive":
