Hagee: 'We Are A Pagan Nation Without Shame'

The topic of John Hagee's Sunday sermon was "Faith Under Fire," and he spent a good deal of time ranting against all of the things in our culture that are undermining the Christian faith and turning America into a pagan nation.

"Secular humanism is a pagan God," Hagee said, blaming it for everything from drugs and mental illness to rape and domestic abuse. "America is becoming a pagan society; we are in a moral free-fall," he thundered.

"When the Boy Scouts of America are censored and penalized for refusing to accept homosexual scout leaders, we are a pagan nation without shame," he declared, adding that "we have endorsed sodomy and called it an alternative lifestyle. It's not an alternative lifestyle; it was, is, and always shall be an abomination unto the Lord":

Cuccinelli Surrogate Jim Bob Duggar Stands By His Comparison Of US To Nazi Germany

While campaigning for Virginia Republicans Ken Cuccinelli and E.W. Jackson this week, reality TV star Jim Bob Duggar reaffirmed his comparison of the United States to Nazi Germany during the Holocaust.

Over the weekend, Duggar told the Values Voter Summit — an event hosted by the Family Research Council Action, where is son Josh serves as executive director — that Nazi concentration camps are “where we are at in our nation.”

Campaigning for the GOP ticket in Virginia, Duggar attempted to “clarify” his remarks by affirming his comparison of the current state of the US to the Holocaust:

"It is shocking that Cuccinelli would accept the support of a man who last week publicly compared the United States to Nazi Germany and the Holocaust," said McAuliffe's campaign spokesman Josh Schwerin.

"Ken Cuccinelli needs to immediately ask his surrogate to leave Virginia," Schwerin continued. "Mr. Duggar's divisive, hurtful, and extreme rhetoric has no place in this campaign for Governor."

Asked about his earlier decision to employ the holocaust metaphor Duggar did not back down.

"Let me clarify," he said.

"We have since 1973 (when Roe v. Wade was decided) had 55 million abortions, so what we have going on is a baby holocaust," Duggar said.

Cuccinelli joined the Duggar clan for one of the family’s campaign stop, which was sponsored by the FRC.

When Jackson met up with the Duggar’s, the Republican nominee for Lt. Governor likened himself and Cuccinelli to Patrick Henry during the American Revolution:

It also featured a fiery speech from Jackson, who said voters face a choice that's as stark as what Americans patriots faced in 1775.

He said Lord Dunmore, the last royal governor of Virginia, at the time "put out an arrest warrant out on our House of Burgesses."

This, Jackson said, prompted Patrick Henry to mount an armed resistance to the British crown.

"I don't think Mark (Obenshain), Ken (Cuccinelli) or I are in any danger of being arrested or being hanged," he said, "but I do think the choice is as stark."

Beck: If We Don't Stop Calling Ted Cruz & Mike Lee 'Extremists,' It'll Give Rise To A Nazi-Style Party In America

On his radio program yesterday, Glenn Beck pointed to a victory by a far-right National Front candidate in an election in France to warn that if people don't stop calling Tea Party leaders such as Ted Cruz and Mike Lee "extremists," it'll give rise to a powerful Nazi Party in America.

"I guarantee you," Beck said, "if we don't wake up, if we don't stop calling people like Mike Lee and Ted Cruz extremists, you are going to see a Nazi-style party in this country."

Saying that the true Right is total anarchy and the true Left is big government Republicans like Mitch McConnell, Beck declared that "the real center of this country is Mike Lee; he is a reasonable man":

Steve Stockman Wants Every Congressman To Read Impeachment Book

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) wants every House member to read a new WorldNetDaily book on why President Obama should be impeached. The Texas congressman told WND that he has 435 copies of “Impeachable Offenses: The Case For Removing Barack Obama From Office,” whose authors Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott hope to kick start an impeachment movement, and plans “to distribute a copy to every member of the House.”

Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, received 435 copies of WND reporter Aaron Klein’s book “Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama From Office” and planned to distribute a copy to every member of the House.

Stockman told WND he believes the book has information every member of Congress should know, and he insists discussing impeachment should not be forbidden.

“Enforcing the Constitution and preserving limitations on executive authority aren’t just mainstream, they’re the law,” Stockman said.

Klein thinks that Obama might literally be a demon because he has been photographed with flies near him, and also believes the President is part of a George Soros/Muslim Brotherhood plot to destroy capitalism, foment an economic crisis and introduce an Islamic caliphate.

Not to be outdone, Elliott has said that Obama is part of a global socialist conspiracy and will collapse the military and merge it with an Islamic/United Nations force.

Cuccinelli's Extreme Agenda Flops Once Again At The Supreme Court

Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli couldn’t interest the Supreme Court in revisiting the constitutionality of “sodomy” bans, and now the Court’s rejected his extreme anti-science attack on the EPA. The Supreme Court today took a case challenging the EPA’s ability to regulate greenhouse gasses from factories and power plants – a dangerous enough case, but not one that takes the challenge to the EPA nearly as far as Cuccinelli had hoped.

Cuccinelli, as part of his crusade against climate science, led a group of state attorneys general joining industry groups in challenging not only the EPA’s regulatory authority but also its very finding that greenhouse gasses are harmful.

While the Court declined to hear Cuccinelli’s head-on attack on basic science, it will still decide whether to grant a big boon to polluters.

Paul Gordon at PFAW Blog gives the back story of the case

The EPA concluded in 2009 that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are pollutants dangerous to human health and welfare.  Under a previous Supreme Court ruling, this “endangerment finding” meant that the Clean Air Act gives the EPA the power to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from new motor vehicles. The next year, the agency adopted a “Tailpipe Rule” for new cars and light trucks. Then, based on the agency’s longstanding interpretation of the Clean Air Act, it also concluded that the Tailpipe Rule automatically triggered  regulation of “stationary sources” of greenhouse gases like factories and power plants.

Industry groups and several states (with Virginia’s Ken Cuccinelli acting as a key ringleader) challenged the EPA’s rules. Cuccinelli, you may remember, abused his position as Attorney General to engage in a witch hunt designed to intimidate climate change scientists. In this case, he has attacked the EPA’s underlying “endangerment finding,” citing the manufactured right-wing “scandal” of “Climategate.” Fortunately, the Supreme Court will not be considering this aspect of the appeals, which might have given Cuccinelli’s claims some patina of legitimacy.

However, the Justices will be hearing challenges to the EPA's conclusion that it has the power under the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from stationary sources. The EPA's legal conclusions were upheld by a unanimous panel of the D.C. Circuit in a per curiam decision (per curiam is usually shorthand for "no duh") that included conservative Judge David Sentelle. According to the court, the EPA's interpretation of the Clean Air Act regarding stationary sources was "unambiguously correct" and "compelled by the statute."

Religious Right Self-Victimization In Full Force At Values Voter Summit: Fear Of Christian Concentration Camps, Bishops In Jail

After enjoying Glenn Beck’s speech about supposed anti-Christian persecution by the Nazis, participants at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit attended breakout sessions focusing on how Christians in the U.S. are facing repression under President Obama.

In a breakout session entitled “Standing Up To the Assaults On Our Faith,” Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily alleged that the Obama administration’s supposed persecution of Christians is so bad that it is proof we have entered the Tribulation, a key period in the End Times. Farah cited Pope Benedict’s remarks “seemingly embracing homosexuality [and] seemingly embracing universalism” as further evidence of imminent doom.

Political efforts to curb the arrival of the Last Days are so few and far between, Farah said, that Christians can only rely on prayer. He urged attendees to “harness spiritual weapons that give us the real power.” Specifically, Farah called on people to join his 9/11 prayer initiative, which he hopes will guide their spiritual struggle.

Janet Porter [née Folger] also warned that the End Times are upon us, for which she naturally blamed gay people. She repeated her claim that gay marriage was responsible for Noah’s flood and announced a new project with Liberty University’s Judith Reisman to sue schools that “corrupt minors” with LGBT-inclusive curricula.

Vision America’s Rick Scarborough agreed with their dire assessments, saying that “infidels” now pull the strings of government. According to Scarborough, the Obama administration is “hell-bent on silencing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” Christian unity, Scarborough feared, “is not going to happen until a bunch of us are thrown into concentration camps.”

He also concurred with Porter’s anti-gay rhetoric, telling the audience: “You are not born gay, you are recruited.”

The speakers on a later panel, “Where Do We Go From Here? Challenging Tyranny,” were just as pessimistic.

One person in attendance asked a question about the purported takeover of the legal system by “militant homosexual leftists” while another questioner, who said she was from Nigeria, claimed that the Obama administration is even worse than Nigeria’s former military dictatorship.

Kenneth Blackwell, the former Ohio secretary of state now with the Family Research Council, alleged that President Obama, through his supposed abuses of executive power, is giving cover to dictators who hope to undermine the rule of law. He described the President’s actions as a “disservice to humanity.”

Alabama attorney general Luther Strange charged the Obama administration with leading a “direct assault” on religious freedom and claimed that state anti-discrimination laws are inconsistent with the “fundamental fabric of the Constitution.”

Dean Clancy of Freedom Works lamented that the Supreme Court issued “tyrannical” decisions in Roe v. Wade, Lawrence v. Texas and US v. Windsor, accusing the Justices of “imposing [their] radical worldview” on America. To push back against the “tyrants” in “black robes,” he urged conservative activists to push for constitutional amendments to return power to the states.

Both Clancy and co-panelist Terry Jeffrey of CNSNews said that civil disobedience against the Obama administration is on its way.

Jeffrey predicted the imprisonment of Roman Catholic bishops, followed by the laity, under Obama, whom he called an “enemy of our freedom.”

He concluded: “We ought not surrender our souls to Barack Obama.”

Glenn Beck Says Our Dystopian Nightmare Is 'Definitely' Less Than Two Years Away

Last week, Glenn Beck freaked out because our society is right on the cusp of turning into a Terminator movie; a theme to which he returned on his radio program today, warning that "definitely" within two years most Americans will be reduced to working part time and saddled with some new 10% global tax while Beck himself will have been run out of business.

At that point, Common Core will be turning the nation's children into little more than cogs in a massive corporate machine while rich people will be able to upgrade their genes and intelligence through products like Google Glasses and gene therapy.

Taking issue with those who mocked his Terminator fears, Beck screamed "this isn't science fiction, this is science fact ... Read 'The Singularity Is Near' by Ray Kurzweil, you pieces of garbage! You people in the press, open your damn eyes!"

'Values Voters' Laugh About Gay Persecution, Get Bad History Lesson From Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck devoted his address at the Values Voter Summit this weekend to the Obama administration’s supposed war on the religious freedom of Christians, a concept he illustrated with a collection of Nazi concentration camp badges. Beck suggested that those attending the summit would have been forced to wear a purple triangle patch.

Conference attendees erupted in laughter after an audience member incorrectly claimed that the purple triangle, rather than the pink triangle, was used by the Nazis to mark gay people:  

Seeing that Beck was making his remarks at an event sponsored by an organization — the American Family Association — that believes that gay people were behind the Holocaust, it is curious that summit participants found it so funny that the Nazis tried to exterminate gay people.

Beck’s main contention that the Nazis went after people who “knew anything about the Bible” is also incorrect.

The purple triangle Beck held up was actually used to mark Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Jehovah’s Witnesses at the time were known as Bible Students or Bibelforscher, a reference to the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Bible Student movement. Detlef Garbe writes in Between Resistance and Martyrdom: Jehovah’s Witnesses in the Third Reich:

Just a few months after the National Socialist rise to power, Jehovah’s Witnesses—as this Christian denomination has called itself since 1931—were banned. The older designations, Bibelforscher (Bible Students) and Ernste Bibelforscher (Earnest Bible Students), which were abbreviated forms of their official name, Internationale Bibelforscher-Vereinigung (IBV) [International Bible Students Association (IBSA]), remained in use.

Garbe also points out that the purple patch was an “exclusive designation” of Jehovah’s Witnesses: “This exclusive designation denotes, in many ways, the special place Jehovah’s Witnesses occupied within the concentration camps.”

But Beck’s false claim played right into the Religious Right’s persecution narrative, as Sharona Coutts writes:

By allowing U.S. fundamentalist Christians to believe that the Nazis exterminated ‘Bible scholars,’ Beck played into the narrative of victimization and persecution, and allowed them to appropriate the Holocaust as their own tragedy…. It is false to say that Nazis targeted ‘Bible scholars’ in the way that Beck’s audience was led to understand that term.

Even more unbelievably, Beck said that the Religious Right would never try to impose their own religious views on others because if “you truly know the Scriptures, you know the Scriptures are not to dominate someone, that’s unrighteous dominion.”

Tim Barton: Even Kids Know Homosexuality Is Not From God

Over the last few month, David Barton's son Tim has been playing a larger and larger role on the daily radio broadcasts and today he filled in for this father on a broadcast about the Texas National Guard's refusal to provide benefits to same-sex couples.

Barton, of course, hailed the decision, saying that even a child can look at a gay relationship and "see that's not the way God intended it":

This should be something that any child - not that we want a child to look at nature and see this, necessarily - but even a child can look and see some things work and some things don't work.  God made bodies and parts certain ways and the reality is that everything that God did, when you go back to Genesis from creation, everything that God did produced life. And if you want a good measuring stick of if something is from God or is not, measure the way it works. 

Jesus said in Matthew 7, judge the fruit, look at what it produces.  And everything that God did in Genesis, it produced life. If you just look at the reproductive system that God made, that God established, it produces life and that's how you know it's right. 

And so, for the homosexuals, what they do can never produce life and that's how you know it's not from God.  Even a child can look and see that's not the way God intended it.

Pat Robertson Calls On GOP To End Shutdown, Warns Default Would Be Catastrophic

Republicans are too extreme and need to put a stop to their dogmatic anti-Obamacare campaign, according to televangelist Pat Robertson — that’s right, Pat Robertson. In remarks made today on the 700 Club, Robertson said that if the GOP continues its crusade to derail Obamacare, it would lead to a default that “would be devastating economically to every human being.”

Watch:

The Republicans have got to wave the white flag and say, ‘We fought a good fight and now it’s over. They cannot shut the government down and then bring about a default. We can’t do it. I mean, it would be devastating economically to every human being and the Republicans just can’t get tarred with that. So they tried and if they go to the electorate and say, ‘We tried, Obamacare was awful, we tried to get it underway and we weren’t successful, the Democrats wanted it, they fought for it and they wouldn’t let go so it’s their bill, their program.’

Amazingly enough, this isn’t the first time that Robertson has called out the GOP for being too extreme.

WND Likens Gay And Transgender People To Suicide Bombers

WorldNetDaily’s David Kupelian is out with a new column attacking LGBT rights advocates, saying that supporting gay and transgender people is no different than making excuses for suicide bombers:

Consider for a moment how children in the Arab-Muslim Middle East develop the “mental illness” of wannabe jihad martyrdom. How exactly do innocent little kids come to be possessed by such overwhelmingly powerful emotions and beliefs that they’re willing to blow themselves up while murdering innocent strangers – and thinking such a despicable crime is the will of God?

If I suggested genetics or biochemical imbalances were responsible, you would laugh. Little jihadists are created when, from an early age, they are continually indoctrinated, intimidated, degraded, rewarded, tempted, lied to, punished, threatened and praised (for reinforcement) – until their little developing minds and emotions are not their own anymore. They have a new implanted identity, very different from the one they were born with.

So, if the forces in one child’s home can transform him so totally that, when he looks in a mirror, he sees someone who feels like killing infidels and himself in a glorious “martyrdom operation,” couldn’t the forces in another child’s home (perhaps much more subtle, but nevertheless powerful) transform him or her into a person with feelings and attractions he likewise was not born with – including homosexual or transgender feelings? Many lesbians, as a matter of fact, confess they hated their cruel or abusive father and therefore couldn’t bond to a man later in life. Why is this so hard to understand?

Kupelian writes that transgender people are just like people who suffer from anorexia nervosa and derides LGBT advocacy groups that seek to take away the stigma from “abnormal and unnatural” transgender people, which he argues will exacerbate the high rates of suicide ideation in the transgender community:

The human mind is an amazing thing. Just like computers, they’re awesome when they work properly, but supremely vexing when they don’t.

Yet there it is: Whether it’s the anorexic or transgender individual staring intently into the mirror and seeing the exact opposite of reality, or countless other people in similar straits tormented from within, our minds are – to put it inelegantly – capable of lying to us.



Reality check: Transgenderism (or transsexualism) is not normal. In fact, it’s so abnormal and unnatural that a staggeringly tragic 41 percent of all transgender individuals living in the United States have attempted to commit suicide, according to a 2010 study.

Yet, while the psychiatric profession diagnoses millions of fidgety schoolboys with the “mental disorder” of ADHD (and then “treats” them with powerful and poorly understood drugs), it is simultaneously re-categorizing an undeniably extreme disorder as normal.

What would we think if the “anorexia rights lobby” (if such a thing existed) pushed relentlessly to de-pathologize anexoria, proclaiming it perfectly normal for some girls, though in danger of dying from starvation, to go on starving themselves so as to satisfy their inner feeling that they were fat?

He then warns that the LGBT rights movement is bent on “totalitarianism” and, much like Voldemort, is “feared by everyone.” “There is no end to the madness, because the madness has no end—it’s a black hole with no bottom.”

Today, the “gay rights movement” has metastasized into a burgeoning form of totalitarianism. Legislation is sweeping the country, outlawing counseling help for minors who want to overcome unwanted same-sex attractions; decreeing (in California and elsewhere) that boys and young men must be allowed to use girls’ restrooms and locker rooms if they identify with the opposite sex (and vice versa); mandating pro-homosexual indoctrination of 5-year-olds; requiring the integration of open homosexuals into the military; forcing same-sex marriage on the nation; criminalizing Christian businesspeople for simply opposing homosexuality on moral and religious grounds; and much more. It’s just beginning.

We need to understand something about this new sexual revolution: There is no end to it. Many thought it would end with same-sex marriage, seemingly the crowning achievement of the gay rights juggernaut. But suddenly, it seems, everything is now about “transgender rights.” There’s a new prime-time TV show coming that will portray a transgender teen as the most sensible member of his family. Vice President Joe Biden calls transgender discrimination “the civil rights issue of our time.”

There is no end to the madness, because madness has no end – it’s a black hole with no bottom.

Most ironic and unfortunate of all, this particular issue – this revolutionary sexual anarchy movement, which more than any other ideology, including Marxism, Islam or atheism, has the potential of permanently corrupting our nation’s core “operating system” called the family – is the one issue that almost everybody is afraid to confront.

Like Voldemort, the arch-villain so feared by everyone in the “Harry Potter” stories that they “dare not speak his name,” almost no one – not Democrats, not Republicans, not churches, not the media (including Fox News), not talk radio (unless explicitly Christian conservative), not even the big alternative news websites, with the exception of WND – dares speak of it.

But be warned, intimidation is the No. 1 tool of would-be tyrants. Not only can it make us shut up from fear, it can – without our realizing it – cause us to change our own beliefs and side with the adversary, and we will never know what hit us. Until it’s too late.

Glenn Beck Explains The Debt Ceiling Showdown Using 'The Deer Hunter'

On his television program last night, Glenn Beck explained the showdown taking place in Washington over the approaching debt ceiling by pointing to the film "The Deer Hunter," specifically the scene in which Robert De Niro and Christopher Walken play Russian Roulette.

Claiming that President Obama is willing to collapse the entire country through default, Beck compared him to Walken's character in the movie, saying it is impossible for Republicans to "negotiate with a man who is willing to pull the trigger."

"Republicans," Beck said, "are dealing with Marxist revolutionaries who want America to default so they can scrap it all and start building a Marxist utopia from scratch.  Remember, this isn't crazy talk":

Buchanan: Better To Destroy Country Than End Anti-Obamacare Drive

In a column fittingly titled “Republicans, Stand Up – Polls Be Damned!,” Pat Buchanan calls on Republicans in Congress not to give up on the push to derail Obamacare, even if it means the collapse of the Republican Party. If the GOP goes down, Buchanan writes, Republicans should bring America down with them as he urges the GOP to be like Samson, who killed himself along with countless Philistines in bringing down the temple.

“Republicans should refuse to raise the white flag and insist on an honorable avenue of retreat,” Buchanan claims. “And if Harry Reid’s Senate demands the GOP end the sequester on federal spending, or be blamed for a debt default, the party should, Samson-like, bring down the roof of the temple on everybody’s head.”

He urges Republicans to ignore three new polls showing the GOP approval rating tanking over its role in the government shutdown, because time will prove the Republicans were right about Obamacare all along.

According to Gallup, approval of the Republican Party has sunk 10 points in two weeks to 28 percent, an all-time low. In the Wall Street Journal/NBC poll, approval of the GOP has fallen to 24 percent.

In the campaign to persuade America of their Big Lie – that the House Republicans shut down the government – the White House and its media chorus appear to have won this round.



Republicans should refuse to raise the white flag and insist on an honorable avenue of retreat.

And if Harry Reid’s Senate demands the GOP end the sequester on federal spending, or be blamed for a debt default, the party should, Samson-like, bring down the roof of the temple on everybody’s head.

This is an honorable battle lost, not a war.



America is at a turning point.

If she does not stop squandering hundreds of billions on liberal agenda items like Obamacare and if she do not end these trade deficits sucking the jobs, factories and investment capital out of our country, we will find ourselves beside Greece, Spain, Illinois and Detroit.

Even if America disagrees, as in 1964 when it embraced LBJ’s Great Society plunge to social and economic disaster, Republicans need to stand up – current polls and corporate Republicans be damned.

If the right is right, time will prove it, as it did long ago.

Klayman: If Anti-Obama 'Nonviolent Revolution' Fails, 'Surely Another Recourse Will Break Out'

Over the weekend, Larry Klayman joined Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin at a Washington D.C. rally where he repeated his mantra that people should demand President Obama “get up, to put the Quran down, to get up off his knees, and to figuratively come up with his hands out” as part of an anti-Obama uprising.

Klayman took to WorldNetDaily to warn that if his November 19 revolution “to peacefully remove this political establishment cancer” does not succeed, then “surely another recourse will break out.”

“When the people are ignored and coerced into submission,” Klayman writes, “and our military heroes are held out to dry and sacrificed to a Muslim enemy by a ‘Muslim president’ and his Republican enablers, it is only a matter of time before the people and the military rise up to remove the shackles that have been placed on them by the government.”

Simply put, the "Muslim in chief" coddles the Muslim enemy over our own U.S. military men and women. Yet, almost as bad is that establishment national security Republican "experts" like Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham stand by and allow these treasonous acts to continue without saying a word.

And, all of this and more highlights why We the People must occupy Washington on Nov. 19 and come in the millions to demand the resignations of our nation's so-called leaders. Not just Obama must go, but key leaders in the Republican Party. If we do not succeed with our nonviolent revolution, surely another recourse will break out.

When the people are ignored and coerced into submission, and our military heroes are held out to dry and sacrificed to a Muslim enemy by a "Muslim president" and his Republican enablers, it is only a matter of time before the people and the military rise up to remove the shackles that have been placed on them by the government. That time is now. We the people have had enough!

Please join us in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 19. Stay tuned for more details about this nonviolent revolution designed to peacefully remove this political establishment cancer, before it kills our beloved country.

Jim Bob Duggar Compares US To Nazi Germany During The Holocaust

Reality TV star Jim Bob Duggar spent most of his speech at the Values Voter Summit imploring attendees to run for office, just like he did, in order to advance social conservative causes like an “army.”

Duggar ended the address by retelling a story about a time when Mike Huckabee and his daughter visited a concentration camp, which he used to compare the current state of the US to Nazi Germany.

“As they were walking out of that concentration camp, he said little Sarah looked up at him and she said, ‘Daddy why didn’t somebody do something?’ You know what, that’s where we are at in our nation,” Duggar said. “Do we want our children, when we’re going to tell them about how great America was, they’re going to look at you and say, ‘Why didn’t somebody do something?’”

Watch:

Duggar’s son Josh is the executive director of Family Research Council Action, which will be sponsoring a Duggar family tour of Virginia to campaign on behalf of Ken Cuccinelli and E.W. Jackson, and one of the summit’s emcees.

Bomberger: Gays Like Kleptomaniacs, Homophobia A Myth

Anti-choice activist Ryan Bomberger laced into the NAACP at the Values Voters Summit today, criticizing the group’s “radical pro-abortion actions.” Bomberger, who alleged that legal abortion is a plot to realize black genocide, said that NAACP should stand for the “National Association for the Abortion of Colored People.”

Later, Bomberger claimed that the gay rights movement is increasing “hostility towards Christianity in this country” while homophobia is nothing but a myth.

He explained his love for gay people by comparing them to kleptomaniacs: “The absurdity of terminology like homophobia; so for the people who cohabitate, if you don’t agree with that behavior are you a cohabiphobic? Or if you disagree with someone who has a habitual stealing problem, are you a kleptophobic? That’s the insanity of this; tolerance demands anything but tolerance, just complete formality to someone’s sense of poll-driven morality.”

Watch:

Rios: Matthew Shepard Murder A 'Complete Fraud'

Not only did American Family Association talk show host Sand Rios plug the ex-gay movement and warn that gay people are trapped in “a powerful web of deceit” during her Values Voter Summit speech yesterday, but she also cited Stephen Jimenez’s shoddy reporting on the Matthew Shepard case to call his murder a “complete fraud.” She lamented that schools host the play The Laramie Project to teach tolerance to students and said that Shepard’s murder was a result of a “drug deal gone bad.”

Watch:

Today, we should note, marks the anniversary of Shepard’s death.

She also a read a letter from civil rights groups, including the Southern Poverty Law Center and People For the American Way, which urged Republican officials to skip the Values Voter Summit. Rios maintained that the letter proves that “it is a dangerous time to be a Christian conservative” in America.

Todd Starnes Blatantly Lies About President Obama's Handling Of Saeed Abedini Case

Todd Starnes of Fox News continued his tradition of blatantly lying in order to support maintain his narrative that President Obama is persecuting Christians, this time telling the Values Voters Summit that President Obama refuses to address the case of Saeed Abedini, an Iranian-American pastor in Iranian jail.

“Our President, who travels across the globe apologizing for the United States of America, yet he cannot utter the words ‘Saeed Abedini’ from his lips,” Starnes said. “What is our President doing about it? Why isn’t he picking up the phone, talking to his new BFF, the Iranian president? Yet at this very moment an American pastor sits in a Muslim country’s jail and we do nothing about it.”

Watch:

Such a claim would be disturbing but Obama actually did talk about Abedini’s imprisonment when he spoke to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on the phone.

And guess who reported on it?

Starnes’ very own Fox News:

A senior administration official tells Fox News that in addition to the issue of nuclear weapons and the broader relationship between the two nations, Obama expressed concern about the pastor—who was been incarcerated for a year at Evin Prison in Tehran —along with two other U.S. citizens.

“Obama also noted our concern about three American citizens who have been held within Iran: Robert Levinson [who is missing], Saeed Abedini, and Amir Hekmati, and noted our interest in seeing those Americans reunited with their families," the official told Fox News.

Abedini's wife, Naghmeh, immediately said the report of the call was "the most encouraging news I have heard since Saeed was imprisoned one year ago. I am very grateful to President Obama for standing up for Saeed and for the other Americans who are held captive in Iran. This development is truly an answer to prayer."

The discussion marked the first time that Obama has mentioned Abedini and his plight since he was jailed last fall. He has never spoken out about Abedini’s imprisonment but the State Department has repeatedly condemned Iran for holding him.

"We're very encouraged by President Obama raising the illegal imprisonment of American Saeed Abedini with Iranian President Rouhani," Jordan Sekulow, executive director of the American Center for Law and Justice, which represents Saeed's wife Naghmeh and their two children, said when told about the latest development by FoxNews.com.

"President Obama's call to President Rouhani to release Saeed so he can be reunited with his family is a significant step forward in this critical case. We're grateful to President Obama for raising Saeed's imprisonment and call on President Rouhani to put his promise of being 'moderate' into action by releasing Saeed without further delay."

The Christian Post, where Starnes is an op-ed contributor, adds:

Pastor Saeed Abedini has found out that President Barack Obama spoke with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and pressed for his release last week, which is said to provide the American citizen a "glimmer of hope" that he might finally be released.



"For the first time, Pastor Saeed had a glimmer of hope that he would soon be released. Iranian news sources had reported on President Obama's phone call with President Rouhani."

Obama's historic conversation with Rouhani on Friday was the first time an American and Iranian president have spoken in 34 years, and has brought notable encouragement to the Abedini family, who have been petitioning for the pastor's release.

But Starnes will discount such reporting—even when it is from his own employer—because it doesn’t fit his narrative that Obama is leading a wave of anti-Christian discrimination.

Lila Rose Likens Her Anti-Abortion Activism To Malala Yousafzai

There are few Religious Right activists who can match anti-abortion activist Lila Rose when it comes to displaying unabashed egomania and smug self-satisfaction and her remarks at the Values Voter Summit once again did not disappoint as she compared her guerrilla video campaign against Planned Parenthood to those of young human rights and education activist Malala Yousafzai.

Just as Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban for standing up for the rights of women and girls to receive an education, is fighting for the rights of everyone, so too is Live Action, said Rose ...  even President Obama and his unborn grandchildren:

Parker: Gay People And 'Enemies Of God' Should 'Keep It Private'

Star Parker helped kick off today’s Values Voter Summit by telling liberals that even though they beseech conservatives to “smoke a little pot, take off your clothes in front of total strangers a little, give up your guns, give up your God and your disapproval of gays,” they will never do such things no matter how much they beg.

She argued that “enemies of God” (read: liberals) are using the issue of homosexuality to undercut marriage and “bring hostility into the public square.”

Parker had just one message for gay people: “keep it private.”
