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!”

People For the American Way, Voces de la Frontera Action Launch Spanish-Language Radio Ad Challenging Walker

As Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker prepares to officially kick off his presidential campaign, People For the American Way and Voces de la Frontera Action are launching a Spanish-language radio ad in Wisconsin challenging Walker’s anti-immigrant positions. The ad highlights Walker’s support for ending executive actions that protect DREAMers and families from deportation, his elimination of in-state tuition for DREAMers, and his funding cuts to public education.

“As Governor, Walker has shown time and time again that he’ll go after immigrant students and families to appeal to the anti-immigrant base of the Republican Party,” said Carlos A. Sanchez, Coordinator of Political Campaigns for People For the American Way. “Walker’s extreme record as governor and support for mass deportation policies make clear how dangerous a president he would be.”

Listen to the ad here:

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.

Huckabee: Christians Must Be 'Willing To Suffer' For Disobeying Gay Marriage Ruling

Anti-gay demon hunter and Colorado Republican state legislator Gordon Klingenschmitt was on hand at the Western Conservative Summit last month on the day that the Supreme Court struck down state bans on gay marriage and he had an opportunity to ask Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee about what Christians should expect as they carry out civil disobedience in response to the ruling.

Huckabee responded that, just like Martin Luther King, Jr., anti-gay Christians must refuse to obey the court's "unlawful" ruling and be willing to suffer as a result.

"A law that is unjust is no law at all," Huckabee said, noting that King was "willing to suffer for his decisions and I think that is what we have to accept is that we would be willing to follow our conscience."

Rick Santorum: Gay Marriage Part Of Secular Theocracy

Rick Santorum has been boasting recently that his prediction of legal man-dog and adult-child marriages has come true with the Supreme Court’s decision last month to strike down bans on same-sex marriage, making the case once again last week on Family Research Council President Tony Perkins’ “Washington Watch” program.

Santorum told Perkins that the recent marriage decision was “an inevitability” because of Roe v. Wade.

“Roe v. Wade is the cancer that is eating away at the body of American freedom and we’re turning into this oligarchy of judges who can impose their will on the American public,” Santorum said. “This is so troubling on so many levels. You have the abuse of the court and really robbing us of our republic. You have the abuse of the First Amendment and imposing their religious doctrine — You can say, ‘What do you mean, religious?’ Their sexual orthodoxy, let’s call it that, their morality — on the rest of this country and the destructive element of that. And then finally the destructive element being the impact on the nuclear family. I’ve been warning about all of these things and they’ve all come together in this one suit.”

Santorum went on to chide fellow Republicans who want to “move on” following the court’s ruling: “What is it about losing our republic, losing our First Amendment and losing the family that’s not worth fighting about?”

Perkins agreed with the former senator’s dire assessment, adding that “you cannot move on from something that is at the very core of who we are as a nation and without it we cease to exist, we will not be a nation.”

Santorum similarly told the National Right to Life Committee that Roe v. Wade is “the cancer that is infecting the body of America.

'Constitutional Sheriff' Urges Elected Officials To Defy Supreme Court On Marriage

Richard Mack, the head of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA), said last week that “every governor and sheriff and county commissioner” in the country should refuse to enforce the Supreme Court’s decision striking down bans on gay marriage.

Rob Schilling, host of a radio program on Virginia’s WINA, asked Mack, “I’ve wondered what would happen if let’s just say a Judge Roy Moore stood up and said, ‘We’re not abiding by this. We already have defined marriage in this state.’”

“Every governor and sheriff and county commissioner should all be saying that,” Mack responded.

“Is the federal government going to send troops into that state, are we going to have an armed conflict over this issue?” Schilling pressed.

“If it’s one person, they very well might,” Mack responded, “but if it’s hundreds and hundreds and hundreds all across the country, there’s nothing they can do about it, so that’s what we should be doing.”

Mike Koeniger, the vice president of the state chapter of the Oath Keepers, was also on the line and interjected that it would only take a couple of hundred sheriffs, each backed up by thousands of armed civilian Oath Keepers, to defy the federal government on marriage.

“Imagine that we only had 200 sheriffs that stood in the gap, and behind every one of those sheriffs there were 2,000 Oath Keepers, being civilian or prior military or whatever, imagine the power of 200 sheriffs,” he said.

With that support, he said, “we’d win the war.”
 

 

Right-Wing Pundit Falls For Fake Story About Pope Francis

Update 7/14: BarbWire has removed the article but it is still on the Christian Post.

Michael Bresciani, who writes for the Christian Post and BarbWire, railed against Pope Francis yesterday for his “ignorant” statements about how the Bible and the Koran are the same book. “The one world religion nonsense of the liberals across the globe just got a boost from Pope Francis,” he lamented.

The quote that has so enraged Bresciani, however, came from the National Report, a notorious fake “news” outlet.

As Snopes reports, the National Report publishes fictional articles: “All news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news.”

BarbWire once posted a fake photo suggesting that President Obama’s campaign included the help of NAMBLA supporters.

Here is the post:

The one world religion nonsense of the liberals across the globe just got a boost from Pope Francis. At the same time the truth and the plenary verbal inspiration of the scriptures has taken a serious hit, at least among the 1.2 billion Roman Catholics of the world.

Most of mainstream biblically based Christianity is still reeling from the Pope’s recent entrance into the uber-green panicky nonsense about global warming posing a threat to the very future existence of the human race.

The Olive Branch Report featured the commentary of Marianne Bernard in an article entitled “Pope Francis To Followers: “Koran And Holy Bible Are The Same.” Bernard posed the question, “And the heresy continues. This was an article from earlier this year, but it clearly shows the false teaching that is now coming from the Vatican regarding Islam and Christianity. Can this be the start of the one-world religion?”

The earlier article Ms. Bernard is referring to appeared in the National Report and has garnered almost a hundred replies most which question the Pope’s wisdom. (emphasis added)

Scriptures say basic message of the Koran is false and is an “other gospel”

We have a Pope who seems totally ignorant of the one quarter of the bible that lays out the future of man in clear and precise prophecies which are pre-written history, not suspect science, speculation or religious tripe.

A lot of time is spent on labeling non-Catholics as independents, but it takes little wisdom to recognize the semantic twisting of such an effort. It would be both accurate and far more honest to say that both Catholics and bible believing Christians are completely – ‘dependent.’ Catholics depend of the Pope for authority and biblically based Christians depend on the scriptures alone.

This simple truth is the reason why we cannot follow the Pope down the apostasy trail to the kind of error that will cost the lives of many people when the axe of the world’s last dictator (antichrist) begins to fall.

Here are some of the scriptures that we depend on rather than the Pope’s encyclicals or Pontifical statements. These passages are strict warnings against the attempt to lump together the writings of ancient or modern pagan and idolatrous religions of the world – much more, they are a strict warning not to follow the falsehoods the Pope is putting forth.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (Jn 14: 6)

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Ga 1: 8)

“Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Ac 4: 10-12)

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (Jn 3: 36)

Does the Pope serve a schizophrenic God?

Islam and Christianity are so completely incompatible that the only way the Pope could get any traction on his new assertions is to have God pronounced as a feather brained, double minded delusionary, suffering from dementia praecox.

When a Christian shares the gospel message with an unbeliever they are invited to come to repentance of sin and new life, but they are never forced or coerced against their will. They alone must open the door. To wit:

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Rev 3: 20)

When Muslims share, they are given leave to kill those who will not accept or believe in their religion. To wit:

“Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.” (Qur’an 9: 5)

A comparison of these two verses alone leave us in amazement and raise yet another question – has the Pope ever read the Scriptures or the Koran – at all?

God’s house is not divided – so exactly who has dementia praecox?

If, as the Pope says, Allah and Christ are the same entity, then why did Jesus say – “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth?” (Lk 11: 17)

Let’s review.

The Pope’s “same entity” is calling for the death of unbelievers in one part of the world, which as we see from day to day, includes Christians, but across the pond he is calling for loving our enemies and showing them kindness and forgiveness.

The best wisdom of God and man arrives at the same place, either God is schizophrenic or the Pope has gone astray. This answers, yet once again, the question of why bible believing Christians will only adhere to the words of scriptures. We do not hate or disdain the Pope, but in the end, it will not be his words that will scrutinize our lives. To wit:

“I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.” (Jn 12: 46-48)

Our God is not flighty, and never opposes himself. As for the Pope, it can be seen that this is not the case. Advising his 1.2 billion followers to put the Koran on the same level as the bible may be the most incongruous and completely ridiculous thing any Pope has said in all of history. Christians and unbelievers alike should be warned that this contradiction must never be taken seriously.

“…what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” (2 Co 6: 14-16)

Perkins: Christians Should Pull Their Kids Out Of Public Schools Because Of Gay Marriage Ruling

Colorado state legislator (and anti-gay demon-hunting exorcist) Gordon Klingenschmitt attended the Western Conservative Summit in Denver last month, where he interviewed Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council about the Supreme Court decision striking down state bans on gay marriage.

Perkins told Klingenschmitt that Christians should now pull their children out of public schools in the wake of the decision, before their children wind up being indoctrinated "into immoral sexuality."

"With this decision," Perkins said, "this will be used as a club to force conformance across the spectrum. I think we're now at a point where parents who are given the authority and responsibility by God to educate their children .... now, I think we're at a point where parents have to seriously consider removing their children from government schools that are going to be teaching and indoctrinating their children into immoral sexuality and this redefinition of marriage."

Rubio Promises Anti-Choice Activists He'll Fight Abortion Rights 'At Home And Around The World'

In a speech to the National Right to Life Committee’s convention in New Orleans this morning, Sen. Marco Rubio called Roe v. Wade a “historically and egregiously flawed” decision and vowed to fight abortion rights “at home and around the world”

“My pledge to you is this: If you help send me to that place, I will never forget this place,” he said.

He went on to compare the fight against abortion rights to the battles for abolition, civil rights and women’s suffrage: “Sometimes in contemporary American life, we come to believe that all the great causes are over, that the past generation fought all the important battles: abolition, the Civil Rights Movement, women’s suffrage. But it’s not true. In fact, one of the most important battles is the one that you are engaged in now.”

Putting Bryan Fischer's Absurd 'The Confederate Flag Is A Democratic Issue' Theory To The Test

Yesterday afternoon, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley signed a law removing the Confederate flag from the State House grounds, so naturally Bryan Fischer used the news to reiterate his absurd theory that the racist symbolism and history of the flag is really "a Democratic issue."

Fischer, whose knowledge of American history apparently doesn't include anything that has happened since 1965, spent a segment on his radio program yesterday insisting that Republicans in South Carolina should have refused to even vote on the removal of the flag because "this is a Democratic Party icon" and evidence that Democrats "have been horrible racists from day one" and that the party's past is "so black, and so bad, and so dark, and so tinged with racism" that Democrats must now remove it in an effort to cover up the party's sordid history.

Fischer's attempt to hang the issue of the Confederate flag on the modern Democratic Party is so laughable that we decided to conduct a simple test and take a look at all of the members of the South Carolina legislature who voted against the bill to remove the flag from outside the capitol. There were three in the state Senate and 20 in the state House.

See if you notice any pattern:

Steve King: It's 'Mexicans Or Central Americans That Are Doing The Raping'

In an interview with The Hill newspaper today, Rep. Steve King defended Donald Trump’s comments calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” and drug dealers, echoing Trump in claiming that the risk of sexual assault for women crossing the southern border translates into Mexican and Central American men being rapists.

"So yes, they’re being raped, they’re being murdered they’re being brutalized,” he told The Hill, “and when I know I’ve been challenged on that, 'well you can’t conclude that (it's) Mexicans or Central Americans that are doing the raping,' well, can you conclude anything else? They are being raped, they are victims of rape, and the price for the transit sometimes is, often is and predominantly is their body.”

Interestingly, while Republican presidential candidates have been scrambling to distance themselves from Trump, they continue to cater to King.

Rick Perry Promises To Heal America By Fighting Abortion Rights

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry gave a rambling speech to the National Right To Life Committee’s convention this morning boasting of the radical anti-choice legislation that he signed as governor to claim that he would be the most “pro-life” of all the GOP presidential candidates.

Channeling Scott Walker, Perry boasted of a law he signed in Texas requiring women seeking an abortion to first undergo a sonogram and another banning abortion procedures after 20 weeks of pregancy, saying, “I know it works. On my iPad there’s that 20-week picture of my first grandbaby, and her mother understands now the most preciousness of life.”

“That was one of the tools we used in protecting women’s health, in being able to say that that is a very important date, if you will, that 20-week period where we outlawed abortion in the state of Texas,” he said.

Perry added later in his speech that abortion rights opponents must react to “those who live with those scars of abortion” with “healing and acceptance,” which he contrasted with President Obama’s “divisiveness” on abortion rights.

“For six and a half years, we have had a president who has used divisiveness as a tool for his political advantage,” he said. “He’s advertised in the battleground states that Republicans are a threat to women’s health. It’s time we had a president who transcends petty politics, who heals this nation, who brings us together, who can change truly this culture that we see in America today and do it through love, do it through tolerance, do it through healing.

"Because this is the most important truth: As long as Roe v. Wade is the law of the land, the only way to stop abortion is one pregancy at a time, one woman at a time, one heart at a time.”

Perry specified that he would help unite America by making sure that Roe v. Wade is overturned, promising that he wouldn’t nominate “squishy” judges to the federal courts. “If I’m the president of the United States and have the opportunity to put individuals on the United States Supreme Court, they will not be squishy. They will be individuals who understand what the constitution says. They will be individuals who understand what the 10th Amendment says.”

Michael Savage: Liberals Using LGBT Rights To 'Eliminate Males'

Right-wing radio host Michael Savage yesterday blasted Oregon for a recent change in its Medicaid policy to allow coverage for transgender people who have reached the age of medical consent.

Savage, who has frequently railed against transgender individuals like Caitlyn Jenner (and apparently President Obama), said that the move was part of a broader left-wing effort to “eliminate” men.

“I bet more boys will become girls than vice versa and eventually we could become a whole country of girls and then girls will finally get equal pay,” Savage said. “That could be the whole reason behind it. It’s a ‘compassionate’ thing that the maniacs in Oregon are doing, because if they can eliminate males and the nation is all girls in let’s say 50 years, than everything will be perfect, won’t it? Because as you all know, women are better than men, minorities are better than whites. Isn’t that the liberal mantra? All minorities are better than whites. All girls are better than men.”

Santorum: Marriage Equality Shows Spread Of Abortion Rights 'Cancer'

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum told the National Right to Life Committee’s convention this morning that the Supreme Court’s decision striking down bans on gay marriage was part of the spread of the “cancer” that began with Roe v. Wade.

“Ladies and gentlemen, this is a very difficult time in America,” the GOP presidential candidate said. “We’ve seen some court decisions that I know have people very upset about what the future of the family and marriage and our culture is looking like.”

Roe v. Wade, he said, is “the cancer that is infecting the body of America” and “you saw Roe and its subsequent decisions bare its ugly head in the case of the gay marriage decision just a few days ago.”

The court’s majority in the marriage equality case, he said, declared that “it is what we say it is and we can do whatever we want to do to whomever we want to do it to.”

“And it was the Roe decision, the Casey decision and subsequent decisions on abortion that have led us to this decision on marriage,” he said. “It’s a fundamental rewriting of the Constitution, ignoring truth, ignoring Nature and Nature’s Law.”

He told the audience that he would keep on fighting marriage equality just as he kept on fighting abortion rights after Roe: “When did it become the law of the land that the Supreme Court has the final say on anything? They do not have the final say on anything! The American people have the final say on everything!”
