Phyllis Schlafly: 'So-Called Kids' Crossing The Border Just Want Welfare

Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly appeared on “Secure Freedom Radio” with Frank Gaffney last week to point the blame at undocumented immigrants for increasing the national debt, overburdening social welfare programs and inciting a health crisis in the United States.

To supposedly remedy these issues, Schlafly called for a moratorium on immigration, arguing that the most recent waves of immigrants aren’t willing enough to integrate into American society. “The American people want the borders closed and we need a pause in our immigration. That’s what happened after the big immigration of the 1920s,” she said. “We had a pause and they all assimilated and they learned English and they learned to adapt to American ways. But the people coming in now, it’s not even clear they want to be Americans.” 

She said that she learned from Rep. Michele Bachmann that the border is insecure and that “there’s no fence, they’re bringing in all kinds of disease and Obama’s not doing anything to stop it.”

Schlafly added that “a lot of these so-called kids who are coming in” are “tough cookies.”

Schlafly breathlessly described a scenario in which the knee-jerk dependency of immigrants on federal assistance programs would cripple the economy.

“They’re people who have no understanding or familiarity with the concept of limited government,” she added. “When you let these people in who will immediately go on the welfare system — you know, the Boston bombers came in, went right on the welfare system. That’s the reason for the enormous spending and debt we have, because we keep bringing in people who really can’t support themselves.”

Schlafly brought up her childhood during the Great Depression — arguably an era that saw one of the largest periods of federal government intervention — claiming that Americans were resilient enough to fend for themselves and didn’t need to seek out government aid. “[Immigrants] expect big government to take care of them, to solve their problems, and that’s not the way most Americans think,” she said.

“I grew up during the depression, and we didn’t look to government to solve our problems. And we grew up to be what they called the Greatest Generation.”

Joseph Farah Worries People Are Using 'Out-Of-Context' Bible Verses…To Support Immigrants’ Rights

In a WorldNetDaily column today, the site’s editor Joseph Farah adds his voice to the popular right-wing field of using the Bible to justify harsh anti-immigrant laws.

Criticizing Christian immigrants’ rights supporters for “seizing on one or two out-of-context verses in the Bible” to support their positions (something that Farah would never do!), he contends that the Bible actually supports deporting all undocumented immigrants because God wanted to prevent “global government” and that’s what immigration reform supporters want.

It’s always good when people consider the moral implications of public policy. So the Bible is a good place to start exploring the right and wrong of immigration laws. But seizing on one or two out-of-context verses in the Bible does not make for the kind of comprehensive moral case you would expect of those urging “comprehensive immigration reform.”

The Bible actually has a lot of say about national borders, foreigners, citizenship and the law.

For starters, I challenge anyone to check an exhaustive online or offline concordance for the word “border” or “borders” to get an appreciation of how many times God’s Word references these terms. While not all of them are relevant to our discussion, I count 169 references, most of them making the point that God really cares about them. Is that surprising? He cares about boundaries between nations. In fact, it is God Himself who invented nation-states back in Genesis 11.

Why did He do it?

It seems He scattered the world’s population and created the diverse languages in an effort to subvert man’s efforts to unite in a global kingdom under a false universal religion. Keep in mind, this took place before God created the nation of Israel.

Interestingly, one of the prime motivations of those behind the promotion of borderless societies is this very same notion of regional government and global government and the breakdown of nationalism.

What was wrong at the time of the Tower of Babel remains wrong today. That should be clear to anyone and everyone whose standard of morality is the Bible.

If we want to be compassionate to the strangers and aliens of our world today, those law-abiding foreigners who desperately want to come to America and are patiently awaiting their turn, we need to be certain they don’t get squeezed out unfairly by those who break the law and push ahead of them in line. And we should expect them to fully assimilate into our national culture.

We shouldn’t be mean to those lawbreakers, either. We shouldn’t mistreat them. We should even forgive them. But they have to leave.

They haven’t been invited. They are not our guests. They are not just strangers; they are trespassers. They are victimizing others through their presence – namely American citizens and foreigners who are trying to immigrate to the U.S. legally. They need to go back home and get in line like others waiting to enter our country lawfully. They need to follow the rules.

Dinesh D'Souza: Obama Using Ebola To Act As 'President Of The World'

Conservative pundit Dinesh D’Souza managed to avoid a prison sentence for campaign finance violations, so is now free to continue hawking his new book and spreading his wisdom on current affairs at right-wing outlets such as Newsmax.

Newsmax host Steve Malzberg invited D’Souza on his program today to discuss President Obama’s response to the Ebola epidemic, specifically the president’s comments criticizing the widely-panned decisions in several states to quarantine asymptomatic healthcare providers returning from West Africa.

D’Souza said that while he senses that “there’s something very strange that’s kind of going on here,” he thinks that Obama “probably” isn’t trying to exact “anti-colonial revenge” by starting an Ebola epidemic in America, despite reports to that effect that he had seen on the internet.

“On the other hand,” D’Souza said, “I would be willing to say that here’s a guy that seeks to view things from the global point of view and he doesn’t seem to recognize his special responsibility to American citizens.”

“We elected him, he took an oath to protect and defend our interests. So, enough of this ‘President of the World’ nonsense, it’s time to start protecting American interests, Mr. President!”

What A Difference A Year Makes In The Life Of Glenn Beck

The midterm elections are less than a week away and Glenn Beck has been noticeably disinterested, very rarely even discussing the key races or the election in general on his radio or television program in recent weeks.

Perhaps realizing that he should at least pretend to feign interest in the election, Beck hosted a "one day only comprehensive midterm coverage" episode on his radio program yesterday during which he interviewed a handful of Republican candidates while barely managing to conceal his utter boredom.

In the last week or so, Beck has repeatedly said that he hates politics and politicians and doesn't want to cover these issues any more because there is no difference between the two parties:

"Stop making it seem like there are two parties. There’s no Republicans or Democrats. There are progressives and non-progressives. There are those progressives, and then those who believe in the Constitution. I happen to believe in the Constitution. The progressive party was started by the Republicans. Period. And you’ll notice, you’ll notice as soon as I started saying that, you’ll notice how quickly the establishment started to run from me."

Beck's disinterest can be traced back to the loss of Tea Party challengers to Republican incumbents during the GOP primaries earlier this year, in which "founder-quality" candidates like Matt Bevin and Chris McDaniel failed in their efforts to unseat Republican senators Mitch McConnell and Thad Cochran, respectively ... and which Beck did not handle well.

Ever since then, Beck has soured on electoral politics, which is rather interesting since it seems to be diametrically opposed to the message that he was delivering just over a year ago when he told his audience not to give up on politics because they were just on the verge of completely taking over the Republican Party.

"I don't think people realize how close you are to winning," Beck said on his radio program last summer. "Don't you see, in six years we haven't been this close to taking over taking over the Republican Party ... The next election, you're there": 

Now, "the next election" is here ... and Glenn Beck is nowhere to be seen.  

Diana West: Military's Anti-Ebola Mission Shows 'Development Of A Totalitarian Government Structure'

Conservative columnist Diana West does not approve of the Obama administration’s decision to send U.S. troops to West Africa to help fight the Ebola epidemic at its source by building treatment centers and training medical personnel. In fact, West told Frank Gaffney on “Secure Freedom Radio” last week that the mission shows that the president does not have “an American agenda” and is instead embracing “a totalitarian government structure.”

Gaffney told West that the administration said it would not return service members to the U.S. for treatment if they were to contract the disease — a claim that seems to be based on a Brietbart headline that isn’t backed up by the source it references — while it might bring in some foreign patients for treatment.

“How could they possibly do that with some non-Americans and not enable American citizens in uniform to be returned here?” he asked.

“Well, I think this goes back to the original question which does have to do with the fact that we have leaders with a global agenda, not an American agenda, who have all the power at the moment and certainly act as if they do,” West said.

“It’s exactly this idea that there is nothing special about America or Americans,” she continued. “Another point to get to is the notion of a commander in chief with so little regard for his forces…that he sees them as pawns in a global game of ideological utopia.”

“This is where you start seeing the development of a totalitarian government structure,” she said.

BarbWire Runs Column By 'Theonomist' Who Backs Execution Of Gays

As we’ve noted before, Matt Barber’s website BarbWire has become quite the outlet for extremists. Today, BarbWire promotes as one of its “Top Stories” a column called “Repent! For the Kingdom of Sodom is At Hand.”  Columnist Philip Stallings bemoans growing support for LGBT equality among millennials, blaming it on “the public school system’s indoctrination of wickedness.” Stallings praises civil magistrates in North Carolina who have refused to issue marriage certificates to “sodomites.” And, of course, he cites the over-hyped controversy over subpoenas in Houston, and the Alliance Defense Fund’s concocted controversy about the “Hitching Post” wedding chapel business in Idaho to portray equality advocates as enemies of religious liberty:

When are we going to realize that this is war? There can be no doubt that the trend now is not only to bully and wreak havoc among Christians, but to lock up Pastors and anyone else that stands for the truth until God’s Law is eradicated from their mist.

This is nothing less than a war and Christians need to be standing up everywhere in this nation contending earnestly for the faith! We should be getting just as passionate in our message of “change” and call upon this nation to repent and to follow God’s Law on this matter.

Stallings is identified on BarbWire as a “Political Theonomist.” That’s a term used by Christian Reconstructionists who believe government should be enforcing their interpretation of Old Testament law, like Gary North and Michelle Bachman mentor John Eidsmoe.

Turns out that’s exactly what Stallings believes. His Twitter feed links to a Christian radio show on which he spent nearly half an hour on August 25 arguing that the government should execute homosexuals – or “sodomites.”

It’s my position that the role of the state is morally obligated to obey God’s law…I am for lawful execution of the homosexual.

When the show’s surprised hosts pushed back and asked whether he would support other things called for in the Old Testament, like the stoning of rebellious children, Stallings said God commanded whole nations to be destroyed “all the way down to their children” and that the rebellious son in the Bible was “refusing their parents’ commandments and was openly rebellious in the community.”

And, yeah, I’m for what the Bible teaches in that regard, along with the murderer, and the rapist, and the kidnapper, and in this case the sodomite.

Stallings described his understanding of Theonomy as meaning that “God’s law is implemented. The civil magistrate must be moral, and the only way we could say someone is moral is if they’re obeying God’s law. In other words, the state is not an autonomous being. It is not executing the law morally if it’s being disobedient to God’s law.”

Rick Wiles: Obama Will Threaten Veterans With Ebola, Set Up Ebola 'Re-Education Camps'

End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles was initially excited that “Ebola could solve America’s problems with atheism, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, pornography and abortion,” but now he is predicting that the virus will lead to extreme government oppression.

Yesterday, the “Trunews” host said that “‘Ebola Obama’ will place West African Ebola victims in Veterans Affairs hospitals throughout the United States of America. He’ll contaminate the VA hospitals with the Ebola virus.”

Wiles also warned last week that “Ebola Obama’s swat teams” will force people into “Ebola Barry’s Ebola Recovery and Re-Education Camps,” fearing that “when you are released from the Obama Ebola Recovery and Re-Education Camp you’ll be a zombie, a walking dead.”

Tony Perkins: America Will Never Accept Marriage Equality And 'Oppressive' Gay Rights Agenda

On yesterday’s edition of “Washington Watch,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins lamented that same-sex marriage “is being forced upon the American people,” insisting that a majority of Americans will never support marriage equality.

Perkins said that just as reproductive rights debates are still contentious because legal abortion “runs contrary to nature,” gay marriage will similarly never be “resolved” until it is banned throughout the nation.

“I don’t care what they do, how oppressive government becomes in order to force this agenda through, they will never force Americans to accept this, the majority of Americans to accept it. Won’t happen,” he said. “Some may go silent, some may be carried away but they will not resolve this issue, trust me.”

Later in the show, Perkins reiterated his support for impeaching President Obama: “If something’s wrong, it’s wrong. Whether or not you can get the conviction that you desire, it’s still wrong and the House has the responsibility and the ability to charge him for this and I think it puts him on notice.”

“This president has systematically seen himself as above the law and I think this has done irreparable damage to the republic and to our form of government,” Perkins said. “Every time we stretch the limits, some of the elasticity goes out. It’s like those gym shorts, when you stretch them out they don’t always go back and I’m afraid that’s what this president is doing, he’s gone and stretched those gym shorts.”

New Spanish-Language Radio Ad Supporting Mark Udall Airs in Colorado

Starting today, a new Spanish-language radio ad supporting Senator Mark Udall will hit the airwaves in Colorado. The ad is part of a NextGen Climate and PFAW Spanish-language campaign to highlight the stark differences between Udall and GOP candidate Cory Gardner on issues important to Latino voters.

The radio ad underscores Udall’s support for immigration reform and environmental protections. It points out that Udall is “the only candidate who supports immigration reform” in the Senate race.

Latinos make up roughly 14 percent of the state’s electorate, and a recent poll of Latino registered occasional voters in Colorado showed that 89 percent are either “almost certain to” or will “probably” vote in the midterms, making this community a critical voice in the tight Senate race. PFAW and NextGen Climate have been working together in the state to engage and turn out Latino voters. The two organizations recently began airing Spanish-language TV ads in Colorado highlighting GOP candidate Cory Gardner’s record of supporting polluters and encouraging voters to cast their ballots for Udall instead.

You can read a transcript of the new radio ad, as well as an English translation, below.

Los republicanos nos quieren engañar acerca de quién es Mark Udall. Pero no lo lograrán. Mark Udall es un auténtico defensor de la comunidad.Udall ha luchado para mantener limpios el aire y el agua, protegiendo la salud de nuestros hijos.

William Gheen: Immigration Will 'Overthrow The American Republic'

William Gheen of the anti-immigrant Americans for Legal Immigration PAC appeared on Newsmax last week, where he declared that those who support immigration reform are either motivated by “simple greed” or want to “overthrow the American republic” by taking “the current stock of Americans” and replacing them with “a population that I guess is more agreeable to their political agendas or worldview.”

“You have an invasion that’s being conducted here by a lot of different actors who have a lot of different types of things to gain, from simple greed and increased profits for their companies and businesses, to others who see this as a way to overthrow the American republic, to take the current stock of Americans, throw us out of our jobs and homes and elections, and replace us with a population that I guess is more agreeable to their political agendas or worldview,” he said.

 

Pat Robertson: People Don't Live To Be 950 Anymore Because Of Climate Change

Pat Robertson may be a stalwart denier of climate change, but today on “The 700 Club” the televangelist conceded that climate change did occur in biblical times, and that’s why humans no longer live to be 950 years old like Noah, or make it to 969 like Noah’s grandfather Methuselah.

“Apparently, after the Flood there wasn’t as much moisture in the air, there weren’t as many bacteria, microbes and things like that and maybe the climate was such that salts on our bodies weren’t as severe,” he said. “But after the Flood, God said the years of a man is going to be 120 years.”

Maybe you can live even longer if you try one of Pat’s Age-Defying Shakes.

Barton: 'We Have An Inalienable Right To Marriage To Be A Man And A Woman And No Other Combination'

On a "Believer's Voice of Victory" episode scheduled to air on Thursday, right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton told televangelist Kenneth Copeland that no government can ever legalize same-sex marriage because "we have an inalienable right to marriage to be a man and a woman and no other combination."

Barton said that the institution of marriage was created by God long before government ever existed, and therefore "government can't get over into God's jurisdiction."

"Whatever God did in Genesis 1-8, government will protect but it cannot redefine, it cannot change," he said:

WorldNetDaily: African Americans Worse Off Now Than Under Slavery, Jim Crow

WorldNetDaily columnist Mychal Massie has a message for African Americans that he says most of them “are too blind, dumb and ignorant to understand,” writing today that “blacks are worse off today, morally and spiritually, than at any other time in their history in America.”

According to Massie, affirmative action and the 1964 Civil Rights Act destroyed the black community to the point that African Americans were better off under slavery and Jim Crow.

I argue there is no greater form of racism and bigotry than race-based “affirmative action.” It is promulgated by self-serving neo-Leninist liberals who believe themselves superior and who look upon blacks as being inferior. Their bigotry implies that blacks cannot succeed or accomplish anything worthwhile in life without their help.

Many blacks have ignorantly embraced race-based affirmative action as justified punishment of white people, whom they view as their oppressors. But what these same blacks are blind to is what race-based affirmative action has reduced them to.

Neo-Leninist liberals in their bigoted pomposity have orchestrated a pogrom of such magnitude as to destroy the sense of purpose and sense of true self-worth in the majority of blacks today. Neo-Leninists have successfully blinded many blacks to the importance of their embracing modernity.

Before neo-Leninist liberals decided to foment despair, discord and animosity for the purpose of prostituting immiseration and self-defeatism, blacks not only embraced modernity but they relentlessly pursued it.

At the signing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, 87 percent of black homes were married, two-parent homes, and 40 percent of blacks were business owners. But 50 years after the signing of the Civil Rights Act, 49 years after the introduction of the Great Society initiatives and 46 years after the introduction of race-based affirmative action, blacks disproportionately represent practically every undesirable category.



But don’t tell blacks that, because the majority are too blind, dumb and ignorant to understand this. There was a time blacks embraced being Americans and the virtues of same; but that mindset has ultimately taken a backseat to the shrill invidious voices of those who preach the vitriolic heterodoxies of Marxism.



In the final analysis, blacks are worse off today, morally and spiritually, than at any other time in their history in America. Over the past 50 years, as other Americans have progressed, blacks as an aggregate have regressed in a horrific way.

Maybe it is time blacks began thinking about embracing the message that has enabled all others to move into the present juxtaposed to the neo-Leninist liberal message of “You can’t make it without our help” that has relegated the minds and spirits of too many blacks to the bottom of life.

Phyllis Schlafly: Immigrants Are Destroying The American Family

Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly is out with a new book called “Who Killed The American Family?” the surprising answer to which is “not just the gays.”

In an interview with the Daily Caller this weekend, Schlafly pointed her finger at one culprit she sees in the death of the family: immigrants.

Immigrants from Latin America, Schlafly told the conservative outlet, “try to tell you they’re very pro-family, but they have a tremendously high illegitimacy rate,” which, she said, causes them to run to “Big Brother” government.

According to Schlafly, one of the most overlooked factors behind the death of the American family is mass immigration.

“I think it’s [immigration] enormous,” the conservative activist told The Daily Caller in reference to mass immigration’s impact on the family.

Schlafly has noticed a disturbing trend among immigrants from Latin American countries that further erodes the traditional family unit. “They try to tell you they’re very pro-family, but they have a tremendously high illegitimacy rate,” she said.

According to the author, this illegitimacy rate leads many to depend on the government for their needs, rather than the family. This makes for weak families in Schlafly’s opinion and diminishes the core values that underlie America.

“When a woman has children without a husband to provide for her, she runs to ‘Big Brother’ government to support her,” she insisted. “There are people who think that they will profit by giving us big government to run our lives. That’s not the American way. That’s not what we wanted. When we started out, we were a country of intact families and we expanded to build the greatest middle-class in the world — prosperous and happy.”

“That seems to be gone now.”

E.W. Jackson Tells Black And Hispanic Christian Voters That The Democrats Secretly Hate Them

Two years ago, E.W. Jackson launched an effort calling for "a mass Exodus of Christians from the Democrat [sic] Party" on the grounds that the party's support for marriage equality was an attack on God and the Bible.

Jackson's effort, of course, had no discernible impact on the 2012 election but it did help him raise is profile with the Republican Party, which one year later backed his disastrous bid for lieutenant governor of Virginia.

Naturally, this year Jackson is once again calling for an “exodus”again this year, releasing a video in which he calls upon black and Hispanic Christian voters to leave the Democratic Party, telling them that if they were to dare to talk about their faith, "you will quickly find out how much they really hate you":

"Christians are being denied employment," Jackson says, "fired from their jobs, losing their businesses, facing discipline in the military and problems in school for daring to stand up for marriage as a union between one man and one woman. This is pushed by Democrats and yet Christians vote for them. To keep voting for these people is destructive of our pastors, our churches, our Constitution and our society. How long do you think God will put up with that?"

"I've heard the excuse that Democrats help the poor. Do you really think we can defy God on the one hand and prosper on the other?," he asks. "The only thing Democrats have done is create more poor people - more unemployed, higher black unemployment, and lower income for those who are working. Democrats want a captive and dependent group of people who will vote for them at election time. Where are the poorest black communities in America? Where are most young black men being murdered? In cities controlled by Democrats? What are Democrats doing about it? Nothing!"

"So you think Democrats love black, Hispanic and poor people? They reward some of our so called Civil Rights leaders if they support Planned Parenthood's mass abortion of our babies and march in the gay rights parade. But stand up with dignity and courage as a black or Hispanic Christian man or woman and say this is against the word of God and I will not support it or vote for those who do. You will quickly find out how much they really hate you."

"Do not sell your soul and vote against the Word of God for the sake of the Democrat Party," Jackson pleads.

PFAW Spanish-Language Ad Challenges Walker in Wisconsin

Today People For the American Way (PFAW) released a new Spanish-language radio ad highlighting Gov. Scott Walker’s alarming track record on unemployment, the minimum wage, and education. The ad will air in Milwaukee, Racine, and Green Bay beginning today.

“Scott Walker’s destructive record speaks for itself,” said Scott Foval, regional political coordinator at People For the American Way. “He doesn’t think the minimum wage ‘serves a purpose.’ He made it more expensive for DREAMers to go to college. He cut millions of dollars from Wisconsin’s schools. This is not the kind of leader Wisconsin deserves. All Wisconsinites deserve a governor who respects working families and values education for all.”

This radio ad is the latest effort in People For the American Way’s multi-year, nationwide campaign to engage Latino voters in key states by shedding light on the agendas of GOP candidates. In this election cycle, PFAW has also aired Spanish-language ads in Georgia, North Carolina, and Colorado.

The script of the ad reads:

Nuestra comunidad valora el trabajo duro y una buena educación. Sabemos lo importante que son para nuestro futuro. Pero el Republicano Scott Walker no comparte esos valores ni respeta nuestro deseo de un mejor futuro. Con Walker como gobernador la comunidad latina ha sufrido tres veces más desempleo que otros grupos en Wisconsin. Y Walker se opone a subir el sueldo mínimo, diciendo que eso no serviría para nada. Además le aumentó la matrícula universitaria a los DREAMers y recortó 800 millones en fondos para la educación.

Walker bloquea nuestro futuro, y no comparte nuestros valores. Ya basta de que Scott Walker y los republicanos nos falten el respeto. El 4 de noviembre, votaremos en contra de Walker y los republicanos.

Our community respects the value of hard work and a good education. We know how important those values are to our future.

And Walker opposes raising the minimum wage, saying he doesn't think it "serves a purpose." He also increased college tuition for DREAMers, and cut 800 million dollars from education.

Walker’s not just blocking our future – he doesn’t respect our values. We’ve had enough of Scott Walker’s - and the Republicans’ - lack of respect. And we must vote to protect the future of our community. On November 4th, we’re voting against Scott Walker and the Republicans.

Chris McDaniel Demands Yet Another Election In Never-Ending Quest To Become Senator

With just over a week left before the midterm election, Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel says he may file yet another lawsuit demanding that the state GOP name him the victor of a June primary runoff election he lost to U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran.

After the Mississippi Supreme Court dismissed his latest challenge, in which he argued that he should have been declared the winner of the GOP primary even though he received fewer votes than Cochran, McDaniel’s attorney told the news arm of the American Family Association today that he may go to the federal courts.

He even floated the idea of holding a special election after the general election on Nov. 4, or whatever else it takes until McDaniel becomes U.S. senator.

An attorney for Chris McDaniel says his client might file a federal lawsuit to try to overturn his loss in June to Senator Thad Cochran in Mississippi's GOP primary runoff.



McDaniel, who ran with tea party support and won by half a percentage point in the general primary, claims the runoff – which Cochran won by two percentage points – was tarnished by voting irregularities. Mitch Tyner is the lead attorney for the McDaniel campaign.

"We certainly disagree with the opinion of the majority," he tells OneNewsNow. "And I point out that three justices didn't participate."

So Tyner says despite the ruling, his client could still challenge the decision in federal court – even after the November 4 election. "State statutes allow the challenge to go forward even after the general election," he explains. "And we simply have to have a special election should the challenge be successful."

Tyner says the campaign may ask for the Mississippi Supreme Court to reconsider its ruling with the remaining three justices weighing in, or they might take the case to federal court.

Louie Gohmert: Wendy Davis' Divorce Shows She's Not Trustworthy

In an interview with Newsmax today, Rep. Louie Gohmert said that Texas voters shouldn’t trust state senator and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis…because she has been divorced.

When host Ed Berliner asked if Davis “has found enough of the will and enough prayers to get her elected,” Gohmert replied that he thought that “she’s showing the same will she had when she let her husband paid for her to get through law school and then divorced him the day law school was finished and paid for, so she’s got a lot of will and that makes her interesting.”

The Texas congressman went on to say he never says “outrageous things to get the press.”

“It’s amazing, so often I get quoted and people say it’s outrageous and then a year or two years later people go, ‘Wow, he was right all along,’” he said

Ex-Gay Activist: Homosexuality Is 'An Instant Addiction As To A Drug'

Ex-gay activist Linda Wall, who has launched a new Religious Right group called Virginia Mass Resistance, promoted her organization in a Saturday interview with “Mission America” host Linda Harvey.

Wall described to Harvey her own experience of being “seduced” into homosexuality, which she said all started with “a glass of wine and marijuana.”

“It was as if it was an instant addiction as to a drug,” she said.

Wall: So if you’re not born with a gay gene, then you have to be seduced or lured into it, which is an epidemic. Or I call it the ‘runaway train in America’ because I was minding my own heterosexual, college co-ed life when an older woman seduced me into it.

Har​vey: How does that happen? Tell me a little bit, without too much detail.

Wall: This is way back, 33 years ago or more, she started flirting with me. I just took it to be a friendship that she was trying to build with me. I was raised in rural Virginia, I’ve never met a homosexual, a person who claimed to be a homosexual, and then in time I realized that there was more to this and I was intrigued and so under the influence of a glass of wine and marijuana, I decided one night to explore and try this. It was as if it was an instant addiction as to a drug and for ten years almost I wanted to get out of it and could not. Praise the Lord I realized that if it could be done it would be done by Jesus Christ, the one who had healed lepers and even raised the dead.
