Rep. Steve King Introduces Court-Stripping Bill Written By Radical Anti-Gay Activists

Yesterday, Rep. Steve King announced the introduction of his "Restrain the Judges on Marriage Act of 2015," which would strip federal courts of the ability to hear any case involving the issue of marriage equality:

A Republican lawmaker is trying to keep federal courts from hearing same-sex marriage cases.

Less than a week before the Supreme Court plans to hear arguments in potentially one of the nation’s most influential cases on gay marriage, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) introduced the Restrain the Judges on Marriage Act of 2015 to preserve state bans.

“For too long, federal courts have overstepped their constitutionally limited duty to interpret the Constitution.” King said in a news release. “Rather, federal courts have perverted the Constitution to make law and create constitutional rights to things such as privacy, birth control, and abortion. These Unenumerated, so-called constitutionally-protected rights were not envisioned by our Founding Fathers.”

King’s bill strips way Article III of the Constitution, which gives federal courts the jurisdiction to hear or decide any question pertaining to the interpretation of, or the validity under the Constitution of, any type of marriage. The bill also prohibits federal funds from being used for any litigation in, or enforcement of any order or judgment by, any federal court.

King said his bill would stop the courts from “destroying traditional marriage.”

What is going unreported is fact that this bill is the result of a campaign backed by some of the most radical anti-gay activists operating today, including Peter LaBarbera, BarbWire, Vision America, Dr. Steve Hotze, and others.

The idea itself was the brainchild of Faith 2 Action's Janet Porter, a longtime anti-gay activist who, just yesterday, warned that gay marriage was responsible for Noah's flood.

Porter was also the driving force behind the recent anti-gay documentary "Light Wins," which featured a handful of GOP elected officials and presidential candidates along with dozens of hardline anti-gay activists warning that gay activists seek to criminalize Christianity:

Not too long ago, we produced an overview of just some of the insane things that Porter has said and done in recent years:

  • Claimed that pastors who won’t perform same-sex marriages will be “carried off into jail” in states with marriage equality laws.
  • Blamed gay rights for Noah’s Flood in a column entitled: “How Same-Sex Marriage Points To End Of The World.”
  • Claimed Jason Collins’ decision to come out of the closet will endanger freedom. 
  • Warned that President Obama will use the Swine flu to “round up American citizens” and throw them in “FEMA concentration camps.”
  • Wondered if former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson is the Antichrist.

Tony Perkins: Obama & Gay Rights Movement Inspire ISIS To Murder Christians

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins has tried to use violence against Middle East Christians as a way to attack gay rights and campaign finance reform efforts in the U.S., and now he is linking the firing of Atlanta fire chief Kevin Cochran, who was found in violation of city employment practices when he distributed to employees a self-published book that included attacks on homosexuality, to the slaughter of Christians by the terrorist group ISIS.

Perkins tells FRC members in an email today that they should donate to his group so that it can stop the “administration’s persecution of Christians within our borders” and stand up for people like Cochran, insisting that the Atlanta official’s firing has emboldened anti-Christian violence abroad.

“The same rampage of ‘political correctness’ that attacked Kelvin Cochran's freedom to believe is coming to your state, your town, your church. Christians you know are targets . . . maybe Christians in your own home,” Perkins writes. “The same rampage of hate that destroyed the career of Kelvin Cochran tells the killers in ISIS, who closely watch America's domestic affairs, that our government doesn't value freedom of belief.”

I'm emailing you with the month more than half gone, and the struggle for the freedom to believe—the God-given freedom to live your faith without punishment—under growing attack.

That's why it's urgent that FRC receive enough funds from friends like you to TRIPLE our $50,000 "Free to Believe" Challenge Grant. Response from friends has been so strong that we have set a goal to triple the challenge.

This grant will help achieve our new goal of receiving $150,000 by April 31.

Why is this so urgent?

Ask Christian wives, mothers and daughters overseas. Their husbands, sons and fathers are being beheaded or shot by radical Islamic jihadists like ISIS. They are being driven from their homes. Children are being martyred. And our administration has done little to help, and for months resisted calling this massacre of Christians by Islamic jihadists what it is.

As General Boykin and I testified before the United Nations on Friday April 17, our administration's persecution of Christians within our borders is emboldening the attack on Christians worldwide.

Why would Islamist butchers fear our government, or believe the United States would defend Christians elsewhere when they do nothing to help Christians under attack for their faith right here in America?

Ask Kelvin Cochran—a veteran fire chief with a stellar record—who was fired by the City of Atlanta . . . for writing a book that expressed the biblical view of morality. Yes, fired. If Kelvin Cochran can be fired, any Christian is at risk.

If our government won't call religious genocide overseas what it is, any Christian, any place, is at risk.



The same rampage of "political correctness" that attacked Kelvin Cochran's freedom to believe is coming to your state, your town, your church. Christians you know are targets . . . maybe Christians in your own home.

The same rampage of hate that destroyed the career of Kelvin Cochran tells the killers in ISIS, who closely watch America's domestic affairs, that our government doesn't value freedom of belief.

No Christian is safe.

Janet Porter: Gay Marriage To Blame For Noah's Flood, Will Usher In End Times

Faith 2 Action founder and anti-gay filmmaker Janet Porter has a message for the Supreme Court: Strike down bans on same-sex marriage, and the whole world may be doomed.

In her daily radio bulletin today, Porter once again claimed that gay marriage was responsible for Noah’s Flood.

She even suggested that such a move by the court could lead to the Second Coming: “If this is true, we are uniquely positioned for the return of Christ like no other time in history.”

John Hagee: The World Will Face A Global Economic Crisis In The Fall Of 2015

On this week's "Hagee Hotline," John Hagee warned viewers to prepare themselves for a global economic collapse that will happen this fall, during which half of the world's wealth will be wiped out.

Coupling his own "blood moons" theory with Jonathan Cahn's "shemitah year" theory, Hagee warned that the world is now on the verge of total economic chaos.

"Do I think the four blood moons is a messenger of a coming storm?" he asked. "Absolutely. History repeats itself. And also, in this September, the shemitah year is ending ... 2015 is a shemitah year. September 28 is the fourth blood moon in this shemitah year. I believe, in the fall of this year, America and the world will face another economic crisis, perhaps as a result of war in the Middle East or an economic crash. But there are very sophisticated people on Wall Street saying we are facing a 50 percent correction in the stock market in the near future. Get ready. Americans should get prepared":

Ted Yoho, Anti-Gay Group Spox Blame Democrats For LGBT Rights 'Distraction'

When the Family Research Council’s Craig James was guest-hosting the organization’s “Washington Watch” program last night, an interview with Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., inevitably turned toward the upcoming Supreme Court arguments on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage bans.

Remarkably, James, whose group lives and breathes opposition to LGBT rights, blamed liberals for pushing marriage equality in order to distract voters “away from reality.”

Yoho, a staunch opponent of marriage equality, declared that if politicians focused on issues like the national debt and immigration, “these smaller things” like marriage equality “will solve themselves.”

“Here we are in the 21st century redefining an institution that has been around for thousands of years,” Yoho said in response to a question from a listener about the impact of a potential Supreme Court decision, “And we’re spending time — and I’m not saying it’s important not to have those discussions —but we’ve got $18.2 trillion [in debt], we’ve got a broken foreign policy, we’ve got immigration that doesn’t work and so we need to start fixing the major things and I think a lot of these smaller things that are important to people they will solve themselves.”

James, apparently forgetting that his boss at the Family Research Council has warned that a ruling in favor of gay marriage will lead to a revolution, called the whole debate on marriage a Democratic-manufactured distraction “away from reality.”

“It’s a distraction of the 10th degree,” Yoho said. “We’re getting this stuff thrown at us and we really need to start focusing on major issues.”

EW Jackson: Conservative Christians 'Must Enlist In This War' Against Gay Rights

E.W. Jackson, the unsuccessful Virginia GOP nominee for lieutenant governor, released a video last week which he said he had to make even though he was “supposed to be heading to an airport to get on a plane” because he was so worried about the gay rights movement’s “onslaught against Christianity.”

In the video, Jackson calls the debate surrounding Indiana’s since-amended “right-to-discriminate” law “an all-out war against Christianity.” “You black Christians who voted for people who support this, it’s time to wake up,” he says, telling African Americans that they voted for people who “hate the faith you represent.”

Jackson shared the video with his supporters in an email with the subject line “Totalitarianism or Tolerance? Freedom or Force?,” warning that “all Christians and fair-minded citizens must enlist in this war” against the “pro-same-sex ‘marriage’ hoards” before they usher in “totalitarianism.”

“It is as monstrous as the dictatorial regimes which force their citizens to bow or suffer,” he wrote. “We keep hearing that most of the American people now support same-sex 'marriage.' That's like saying all of the people in Cuba vote for Castro as President. No one dare do anything else.”

Unfortunately, our liberty is under attack like never before, and the solemn warnings of our Founding Fathers are as relevant as they were on the day they uttered them. One of the most recent attacks on Liberty occurred in Indiana when pro-same-sex 'marriage' hoards demanded that the Indiana Legislature strip business owners and others of their First Amendment rights to freedom of conscience and expression. They would force Christians to support or participate in same-sex ceremonies as a requirement of being allowed to do business. This is creeping totalitarianism, under the guise of tolerance and fairness. It is as monstrous as the dictatorial regimes which force their citizens to bow or suffer.

We keep hearing that most of the American people now support same-sex 'marriage.' That's like saying all of the people in Cuba vote for Castro as President. No one dare do anything else. When the homosexual radicals label you a bigot and hater for your Christian principles, there are many who choose to express the opinion that is safe. When government and businesses become a mob labeling a fairly mild law a symbol of hatred and discrimination, the message is clear that opponents better keep their mouths shut or lose their jobs and livelihood. This intimidation must stop, but sincere believers must not be moved.

It is a lie that opposition to same-sex 'marriage' is the same as Jim Crow segregation and bans on interracial marriage. The truth is that racial ideology was created to justify slavery and the continued subjugation of people based on skin color. On the other hand, Christians have believed in marriage as a sacred union between one man and one woman for 2000 years. We did not create this narrow definition in response to anything, not even the anti-Christian gay rights movement. There is no comparison between homosexuality and race. One is behavior with profound moral implications and the other is a neutral physiological characteristic.

In the brief personal message below, I exhort fellow Christians and ministers to take a STAND. The time for languishing on the sidelines of the battle for Liberty is over. There can be no spectators. All Christians and fair-minded citizens must enlist in this war. Either we will fight for our liberty or we will lose it!

Michele Bachmann: Obama Administration 'Persecuting' Conservatives

While allegations that the IRS subjected conservative groups to special scrutiny have completely unraveled, the right-wing Truth in Action Ministries is still standing by them, releasing a video this week featuring ex-Rep. Michele Bachmann, radio host Bryan Fischer and former Southern Baptist Convention official Richard Land about the Obama administration’s supposed misuse of the tax agency for political purposes.

Bachmann alleges in the video that “the Internal Revenue Service took it upon themselves to persecute American citizens based upon their beliefs, whether they’re conservative, whether they were Christian.” Land, claiming that the phony scandal was much worse than Watergate, demands that IRS officials “go to jail” for their purported attempts to “diminish the freedoms of American citizens.”

Fischer, for his part, claims in the video that the IRS became the government’s “religious police.” “Leftists and bureaucrats in the federal government are now trying to use the IRS to repress and to punish religious speech they don’t like and political speech they don’t like,” he says. “And now they are looking at cracking down on churches, they’ve made some kind of secret deal with an atheist organization that they are going to monitor churches for any kind of political communication from the pulpit, and this is beginning to sound a lot more like communist China or communist Vietnam than it is the United States of America.”

The video concludes with Land calling the IRS the Obama administration’s “weapon … against those who would dare to criticize the government.”

“It’s like pointing a gun at your political opponents,” he says. “That is a violation of so many of the Bill of Rights it would take more time than we have to discuss them.”

Rand Paul Says It's 'Sexist' To Think He Was Being Sexist With Female Reporters

In an interview with Iowa talk radio host Simon Conway yesterday, Sen. Rand Paul pushed back against claims that he has a pattern of interrupting and acting rudely towards female reporters, saying that the real sexists are the people who criticize his treatment of women journalists.

“The funny thing about it is that it’s kind of a sexist position to think that somehow women announcers are less capable to handle themselves than men,” Paul said when Conway praised his testy response to Savannah Guthrie’s questions about his changing foreign policy positions. “I don’t think that, but everybody that was complaining about it, thinking it had something to do with gender, basically that’s insulting to the people doing the questioning.”

“Really the problem is that we have a lot of media that are just so far on the left that we just don’t have any neutral questions,” Paul continued. “If you go on there as a Democrat, they laugh and yuck it up and talk about how great things are going, but it’s a little bit different when Republicans are on the national news.”

PFAW Criticizes Jeb Bush’s Support For Deporting DREAMers & Immigrant Families

WASHINGTON – Yesterday, Jeb Bush said he would repeal DACA & DAPA, President Obama’s executive actions that protect DREAMers and their families from deportation.

In response, People For the American Way Political Director Randy Borntrager released the following statement:

“Ending President Obama’s executive actions means subjecting millions of hard-working immigrants to deportation. By stating his intent to repeal these actions, Jeb Bush announced his unabashed support for deporting DREAMers.

“After years of gridlock in Congress and Republicans' vehement opposition to immigration reform, Jeb Bush's calls for legislation to protect DREAMers is a farce. The next President must protect DREAMers and immigrant families whether or not Congress takes action, and Jeb Bush just told us that he absolutely won’t.”

Maggie Gallagher: Christians Must 'Be Prepared To Rebuild From The Ruins Of The Collapse Of Civilization'

James Dobson continues to prepare for the upcoming Supreme Court arguments on marriage equality by gathering anti-gay activists on his radio program to discuss the various calamities that will befall the United States if the court strikes down state-level bans on gay marriage.

On today's program, Dobson spoke with former National Organization for Marriage president Maggie Gallagher, who warned that a Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality would represent the literal end of civilization and the beginning of an era in which Christians become a persecuted minority.

Declaring that the push for marriage equality is nothing more than "an attempt to impose a new morality on all of America," Gallagher warned Dobson's audience to get ready to live as pariahs in a society in which people of faith and marginalized and persecuted.

"Christianity in this country is going to enter a new phase where we are a hated minority group," she declared, "and I think we had better be psychologically and spiritually prepared for that and be prepared to rebuild from the ruins of the collapse of civilization that we're witnessing. At least one civilization is over with and what the next phase of American civilization will be is yet to be determined":

Rand Paul Asked About Military Coup Conspiracy Theory

As Rick Santorum found out earlier this year in Charleston, GOP presidential hopefuls should get ready to field questions about bizarre conspiracy theories, not just from activists but also influential conservative talk show hosts in early primary and caucus states like Iowa.

For example, Iowa-based radio host Jan Mickelson asked Sen. Rand Paul to respond yesterday to a burgeoning far-right conspiracy theory surrounding a military training exercise known as Jade Helm 15, which some on the far-right believe will lead to martial law.

Paul told Mickelson that he had only heard of Jade Helm in passing and would look into it.

But Mickelson implied that the issue would not be going away for Paul and his fellow GOP candidates. Saying that he “gets emails about this every day,” Mickelson told the senator, “It’s making some people nervous, but it doesn’t take much to make people nervous nowadays.”

Huckabee: If Someone Breaks Into My House, 'I Call 911 To Tell Them Where To Come Pick Up The Body'

Over the weekend, Mike Huckabee was in New Hampshire to speak at the Republican Leadership Summit and while he was there, he sat down for an interview with conservative activist Kimberly Morin of the Manchester Political Buzz Examiner.

During the discussion, Huckabee shared his views on the Second Amendment by explaining that, where he comes from, the "gun nuts" are the people who support gun control and stated that if somebody broke into this house, the only reason he'd call 911 would be to tell them where to pick up the body of the intruder.

Explaining that he's owned guns since the time he was five, Huckabee said that he cringes when he hears people say that they support the Second Amendment because it protects hunting.

"The Second Amendment is not about hunting," he said, "this is about freedom. And I've heard people say 'Huckabee is one of those gun nuts.' Where I come from, a gun nut is a person who is irrationally afraid of a firearm because they don't understand the nature of having one and the importance to their liberty. I don't love guns, but I do love freedom. I love it a lot."

Huckabee went on to say that the only way to protect that freedom that he loves so much is "if we are able to outgun whoever wants to take that away from me," warning that if somebody breaks into his house, "there will be a gunfight involved in that and I plan to win."

"Yes, I will still call 911," he added, "but it's not going to be to call to helplessly wait as a victim while somebody ravages my family or my home. I call 911 to tell them where to come pick up the body of the son of a gun who broke into my house in the middle of the night":

The Personhood Movement: Where It Comes From and What It Means For the Future of Choice

The largest and best-funded groups opposing abortion rights have, over the past several years, achieved astounding success in chipping away at women’s access to legal abortion in the United States. But these successes, Personhood Alliance’s founders maintain, are too small and have come at a grave cost.

Mo Brooks: Dems Use 'Sexual Exploitation,' 'Racial Division' & 'Class Warfare' To Get Votes

Last week, Alabama Republican Rep. Mo Brooks stopped by the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s radio row event in Washington to speak with home-state talk radio host Matt Murphy. The two were discussing the postal worker who flew a gyrocopter onto the White House lawn to protest the influence of money in politics, which got Brooks to talking about efforts to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling.

Attempts to overturn the 2010 decision, Brooks said, are in fact a Democratic plot to “engage in class warfare” in order to “get votes,” much like the way that Democrats will “resort to racial division” or “resort to sexual exploitation if that will help them get votes.”

“To the credit of the Democrats, when they get involved in political fights, they fight to win and it’s no holds barred,” he said. “They will resort to racial division if that will help them get votes. They will resort to sexual exploitation if that will help them get votes. And in this instance, if they can engage in class warfare, even if it is a suppression of the speech guaranteed by the First Amendment, if that will get them votes, they will do it. So, that’s what you’re saying with Hillary Clinton.”

Last year, Brooks famously accused Democrats of waging a “war on whites.”

Dennis Prager Blames California Drought On 'Worship Of Nature'

Right-wing talk radio host Dennis Prager was a guest on Glenn Beck's radio program this morning, promoting his new book, "The Ten Commandments: Still the Best Moral Code," during which he blamed California's historic drought on the fact that the state has been violating the commandment against worshiping false gods.

"A false god is one that you really do worship because you think it is godlike," Prager stated. "God created nature. Nature is subservient to God. Nature is created for the human being. Today it is the opposite. Where I live in Southern California, the reason we have no water is not because of drought, it is because of the worship of nature. For example, the incredible amount of water that is taken from humans in order to save some six-inch fish. This is the worship of nature."

Prager's assertion is untrue, but Beck agreed and used the discussion to reiterate his belief that the world is unknowingly worshiping the false gods Baal and Moloch:

Friendly Tip: Tell A Gay Couple They Are Going To Hell On Their Wedding Day

On his radio program on Friday, the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer advised listeners that if they feel that they must attend a gay couple’s wedding, they should first send the couple a letter explaining why they do not support the marriage. At least one listener was not happy with this advice, and called into Family Research Council President Tony Perkins’ “Washington Watch” program last night to voice his disagreement with Fischer.

The caller, who identified himself as “Ricky,” told Perkins that he was “shocked” by Fischer’s suggestion since a true Christian would only attend a gay couple’s wedding in order to interrupt the ceremony and tell the participants that they are going to Hell.

“The only reason that any Christian would ever attend a homosexual wedding is when the preacher says, ‘Is there any objection to the wedding,’ you stand up and say, ‘Yes, according to the Bible, sodomy, you will burn in Hell for this.’ That is the only reason why any Christian would ever attend a sodomite wedding,” Ricky told Perkins.

Perkins replied by saying that Ricky brought up a “good point” but that he doubted that a gay couple would “invite people to raise any objections to it.” He added that silence in the church about divorce has diminished the significance of the institution of marriage, leading “to this wholesale redefinition of marriage as a result.”

AFA: Pray Against Satanic Gay Marriage

The American Family Association is calling for divine intervention in the upcoming marriage cases before the Supreme Court, telling its members in a recently released prayer guide that the court’s marriage equality ruling will be “the most important decision in the history of America.”

The AFA’s prayer guide [PDF] urges readers to ask God to spare America from His wrath if the Supreme Court strikes down bans on same-sex marriage, claiming that such a ruling would be inspired by Satanic influences.

“Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that our battle is not against flesh and blood but against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places,” the prayer guide reads. “We know that Satan hates all that you are and stand for, and that the attack on marriage and the family comes ultimately from him. We know he is a deceiver, a liar and the father of all lies, and we know that many in our culture have believed his lies about sexuality, including members of our Supreme Court. We pray that your Spirit will reveal to each of these justices every lie they have believed, whether that lie comes from the world, their own flesh, or the devil himself.”

Heavenly Father, we freely confess as the people of the United States that we are a sinful people. We confess our many sexual sins, the sins of lust and pornography, of sexual immorality, of adultery, of unbiblical divorce, and of homosexuality. We confess that our sexual sins have led to the death of 56 million innocent babies while still in the womb.

We know these sins merit your wrath and your judgment. We tremble for our country when we reflect that you are a just God and your justice cannot sleep forever. We beg you to forgive us of our many sins, and cause a spirit of repentance and spiritual renewal to sweep across this land.

We plead with you not to hold our sins against us as the Supreme Court deliberates over the institution of marriage. We acknowledge that if sexual behavior which is an abomination in your sight is not just protected but celebrated by the highest court in our land it will inevitably bring your judgment upon our land.



Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that our battle is not against flesh and blood but against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. We know that Satan hates all that you are and stand for, and that the attack on marriage and the family comes ultimately from him.

We know he is a deceiver, a liar and the father of all lies, and we know that many in our culture have believed his lies about sexuality, including members of our Supreme Court. We pray that your Spirit will reveal to each of these justices every lie they have believed, whether that lie comes from the world, their own flesh, or the devil himself.

Wherever any of them have given you any access to their minds and hearts, we pray that your Spirit will take full advantage and speak to their souls with power and conviction. We pray in the name of Jesus that you by your mighty power will restrain the voice of the evil one, if only for a moment, so that in the supernatural quiet you create they may each hear your still small voice speaking truth to them and warning them of the consequences of ignoring your voice. Urge them, we pray, to honor you and the institution of marriage you have created for our own good.

David Horowitz: 'Traitor' Obama Letting Terrorists Bring Nukes Over Southern Border

Conservative activist David Horowitz told Florida talk radio host Joyce Kaufman on Friday that President Obama’s “heart is with the enemy,” which is why he is allowing terrorists to “walk across” the southern border carrying nuclear weapons.

When Kaufman asked Horowitz about the U.S. program to resettle refugees from the Syrian civil war, he warned that the president is “importing our enemies,” adding that Obama and his party have “destroyed our southern border so it’s easy for terrorists to get here.”

“All they have to do is walk across that border,” he said, “and they’re going to do it, and when they come they’re going to bring chemical, biological and eventually nuclear weapons, so don’t kid yourself.”

Kaufman agreed, citing an unfounded Judicial Watch report about an ISIS training camp near the border with Mexico and the president’s recent prayer breakfast remarks to declare that the president has “lost it.”

“He’s a traitor,” Horowitz added. “His heart is with the enemy.”

Rick Santorum: Obama Established A Secular Theocracy

Rick Santorum appeared on Tony Perkins’s “Washington Watch” radio show yesterday to discuss national security threats from ISIS and Iran, but Perkins eventually moved the discussion to the “domestic threats” to the country: namely, gay marriage.

Perkins thanked Santorum for working with the Family Research Council on creating a short film about the dangers of marriage equality, which will be shown in participating churches on the Sunday before the Supreme Court hears oral arguments in Obergefell v. Hodges.

Santorum told Perkins that, for the first time ever in U.S. history, religious liberty is under assault from a new secular theocratic system:

For the first time in the history of our country, the government is attacking people, prosecuting people, calling for people to be rehabilitated, constraining in the military with our chaplaincy. We now see chaplain after chaplain being dismissed for not accepting the secular orthodoxy that this administration wants to put forward, criticizing people for holding biblical truth and counseling them in a biblically coherent way. We see businesses being prosecuted. We see all sorts of activity on the legislative front, where they are pushing — as we saw in Indiana — pushing bills that simply protect employees’ rights to be able to practice their faith consistent within an employment situation. And those things which were unanimously passed are now being fought against.

It’s a hostility to religion that we’ve never seen in the history of our country. And I read an interesting article the other day; it’s actually not the free exercise of religion that is being attacked, it’s actually a new religion that is being established. So we have the state establishing a new religion, a secular state religion, a secular orthodoxy that everybody is going to have to comply with. We don’t have as the threat was at the time of our Founders, the Church of England imposing the English church on America. We have now the secular church that is being imposed on this country and anybody that defects is subject to persecution and prosecution. That is a very serious threat to liberty in America.

Pat Robertson: Hillary Clinton Wants To Ban People 'From Criticizing Politicians'

Today on “The 700 Club,” Pat Robertson responded to a CBN report about an effort to organize a convention of states to amend the U.S. Constitution by warning that Hillary Clinton would use such a process to outlaw criticism of political leaders.

Robertson was referring to Clinton’s comments that she is open to a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, which opened the floodgates to corporate and dark money in elections. Robertson's warning makes no sense considering that the ruling was delivered in 2010, and political criticism was very lively and legal before then.

“Hillary Clinton actually wants to restrict the First Amendment right of free speech so that they will protect the political class so that people will be prohibited under the Constitution from criticizing politicians,” Robertson said. “It’s appalling, but that’s what she said.”
