Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt has been going-all out against immigration reform, warning that immigrants will “vote to take away our guns” and are “going to be probably just sitting around drawing welfare and voting Democrat.” He told radio host Steve Deace earlier this week that if a reform bill passes, “you can buh bye to your guns and buh bye to the rest of your freedom because this would be a country that had been californicated.”
In an action alert this week, GOA tells its members to call their senators and oppose immigration reform because if it passes “you could lose all your guns before 2035.”
“By 2035,” the alert warns, “the battle will no longer be about stopping the expansion of background checks. Most likely, it will be about stopping the government from coming to take your guns away.”
You Could Lose all your Guns before 2035 under the Amnesty Bill before the Senate
Contact your Senators and urge them to vote against the anti-gun immigration amnesty bill.
We’ve written you before about the immigration amnesty bill that will be debated on the Senate floor beginning June 10.
We had just been through a hard fight to stop gun bans and registration. And some of you may have even felt the immigration amnesty was not a “gun” issue.
But if the amnesty bill is passed, within 20 years, Washington could be as anti-gun as Albany, Hartford, and Sacramento.
This is because the bill will create at least 11,500,000 new citizens -- but probably closer to 20,000,000 -- and, if history is any guide, they will vote 71% of the time for far Left Democrats like Barack Obama.
By 2035, the battle will no longer be about stopping the expansion of background checks. Most likely, it will be about stopping the government from coming to take your guns away. And there is nothing we will be able to do about it.
Earlier this week, a group calling itself the Black American Leadership Alliance (BALA) sent a letter to members of the Senate’s Gang of Eight and to members of the Congressional Black Caucus urging them to abandon immigration reform, claiming that reform would lead to “higher unemployment, more poverty, and a lower standard of living for many in the black community.”
BALA didn’t provide much information about itself in its press release…in fact, the group doesn’t seem to have existed until very recently (one indication is that it joined Facebook on May 13). The Anti-Defamation League reports that this is because BALA is just the latest incarnation of a shifting series of front groups for the anti-immigrant nativist group FAIR, which has been trying for years to drive a wedge between African Americans and Latinos. Until its recent name change, BALA was known as the African American Leadership Council (AALC), which itself, according to our friends at the Center for a New Community, was “simply a redressing of FAIR’s old front group, Choose Black America.”
In fact, the Center for a New Community notes, BALA seems to be running entirely through another FAIR front group, one of many stemming from white nationalist John Tanton, misleadingly called “Progressives for Immigration Reform” (PFIR). In a fact sheet on PFIR [pdf], the Center notes, “PFIR emblazons its public image with symbols and rhetoric that profess support for environmental causes. But under this veneer, PFIR faults the ills of American society on ‘mass migration,’ and in fact, immigrants in general—sharing more with the bigotry of the far-right than any ‘progressive’ cause.”
A look at the twelve signers of BALA’s letter gives a clear picture of the new group. Of the twelve signers, two are longtime anti-immigrant activists entrenched in the Tanton network – including groups like PFIR, FAIR and the Center for Immigration Studies– and four are vocal conservative extremists who have appeared on these pages before:
Frank Morris, who identifies himself as a former director of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. But these days, Morris is tied up in a number of Tanton-connected anti-immigrant groups, including sitting on the boards of FAIR and the Center for Immigration Studies and serving as the vice president of PFIR.
Leah V. Durant, who left her position as a staff attorney at FAIR’s Immigration Reform Law Institute [pdf], which writes anti-immigrant laws, to become the executive director of PFIR when it launched in 2008 [pdf].
Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson, a columnist and talk show host who:
Complains society is being run by “women who look like men, act worse than men, and who have essentially sacrificed their womanhood at the alter [sic] of ‘achievement.’”
In case it’s not clear, he’s really not a fan of the women’s movement: “There is a war against beautiful women, and it’s being waged by the Women’s Movement, ironically….Let’s face it, the women who rise through the ranks in Leftist politics look like dudes. In fact, if you put high-ranking female political Plutopians against their “male” counterparts, it would be the CHICKS WITH…well…CUPS, and I’m not talking bras. ….Women on the Left secretly wish to build a society of powerful ugly women…to match how they feel (and are) inside. A beautiful Liberal woman (not that I’ve ever seen one) might as well be fitted for knee pads and given Bill Clinton’s ‘How to Pleasure a President While On Your Knees Under a Desk” manual and a box of Cuban cigars.’
While speaking to Glenn Beck earlier today, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) maintained that UN Ambassador nominee Samantha Power, best known for her human rights advocacy, “grovels” before dictators. Beck called Power, whom he referred to as “Powers,” as an “extraordinarily dangerous person” and accused her husband Cass Sunstein, who formerly led the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, of directing the IRS to target conservatives.
Cruz called Power “extreme” and “far outside of the mainstream,” and said that she and other “left-wing academics” appointed by Obama consistently “grovel before tyrants like Castro in Cuba and North Korea.”
On Washington Watch this week, Tony Perkins lambasted USAID for holding an activist training in Colombia working on ways to promote LGBT equality and curb anti-LGBT violence. Since Perkins is under the false impression that the “majority of Americans oppose” and “object to” LGBT rights and protections, he said that the summit represents “another breach of trust with Americans” on par with the controversy surrounding accusations the IRS targeted conservative organizations.
Perkins, who has spoken approvingly of the “kill the gays” bill in Uganda, claimed “this is just another part of its strong-arm strategy to bully another nation into compliance with their liberal social policy” and “bribe, coerce and force poor countries into accepting his pro-homosexual agenda,” lamenting: “this administration is doing everything they can to remake not just America in their image, but the world.”
Now this week, the first in a series of USAID gay training took place in Colombia, a nation specifically targeted because its leaders struck down a bill redefining marriage. The goal, an agency spokesman says, is to teach people how to infiltrate the political process and advocate for laws that a majority of Americans oppose, by the way, and we’re paying for this program, these are things we object to, work against and we’re being forced through our tax dollars to pay for it. She says, “It can be a real game-changer in the advancement of LGBT human rights.” Essentially, U.S. taxpayers are being forced to groom the next generation of the world’s Human Rights Campaigns, a stunning exploitation of Americans’ tax dollars, and more importantly, I think this is another breach of trust with Americans. For the Obama administration, this is just another part of its strong-arm strategy to bully another nation into compliance with their liberal social policy. Whether it’s through the United Nations, U.S. embassies, or the State Department, President Obama is leading the effort to bribe, coerce and force poor countries into accepting his pro-homosexual agenda. And it’s being done with your tax dollars. So the IRS is just the tip of the iceberg. This administration is doing everything they can to remake not just America in their image, but the world.
In an interview with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council today, Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) said he is confident that his bill banning abortion after 20 weeks will “pass with strong margins in the House of Representatives,” and warned that the US is doomed if the country doesn’t totally abolish abortion rights.
Even though the recriminalization of abortion would surely drive more women to dangerous, back-alley abortion clinics like Kermit Gosnell's, Franks told Perkins that abortion rights proponents want the country to “embrace the evil that Dr. Gosnell has displayed to all of us” and “send America over the brink.”
He went on to argue that President Obama, whom he once called an “enemy of humanity,” will “go down in history as the abortion president” and that his opposition to abortion bans will “shame” his administration.
If we embrace the evil that Dr. Gosnell has displayed to all of us, if we embrace that as a country, then I am afraid that we have not only lost the battle but we’ve lost the war. This generation would be the one that would send America over the brink. Even if it survived as a particular nation, everything that was in the hearts of the Founding Fathers when they dreamed of having a country where all of God’s children would be allowed to live and be free and pursue their dreams, that dream will die if we don’t have the courage to stand up for the weakest among us.
It’s my conviction that it will pass with strong margins in the House of Representatives. Then of course the equation is before people like the Senate Leader, will Harry Reid allow this to be voted on or to be debated fairly? That’s going to be the question. It occurs to me that over time we will probably win this. I hope that it comes to the point when we have a president that will sign it. This president will go down in history as the abortion president and of all the things that will besmirch his record, and there will be many, nothing will cast more shame on this administration than standing by and letting millions of children die in darkness because he simply refuses to see the light.
National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent today accused President Obama of supporting “a system that daily unleashes monsters back out on the street” while “disarming law-abiding citizens.”
“The president and his anti-gun crazies,” Nugent writes, are determined to pass laws “banning guns,” when they should be “banning criminals.”
He said that the left has embraced an “anti-American” and “morally bankrupt agenda” that “will achieve nothing except to rape our Constitution and urinate on the vision of our Founding Fathers.”
These anti-gun posers couldn’t be more wrong. The real central issue that all Americans with common sense understand is about keeping violent maggots in cages and not disarming law-abiding citizens.
This is why the NRA and good, decent Americans don’t trust the president and his anti-gun crazies. To focus their efforts on restricting the rights of law-abiding Americans instead of doing whatever they can to revamp a system that daily unleashes monsters back out on the street where they will commit more heinous, unspeakable crimes is the worst crime of all.
The cops, prosecutors, judges and prison officials know who these monsters are. Knowing that they will more than likely commit more vicious crimes, the “system” unleashes them anyway.
The left’s solution to this willful act of barbarism: ban certain types of guns and high-capacity magazines that are rarely used in crimes.
Clearly their agenda is banning guns, not banning criminals or saving lives. And their morally bankrupt agenda is wrong, anti-American and counterproductive. Their agenda will achieve nothing except to rape our Constitution and urinate on the vision of our Founding Fathers.
The Massachusetts anti-gay group MassResistance, which previously called on the Boston Red Sox to apologize for making an “It Gets Better” video, is now demanding that the team cancel a gay pride event. The group put out a statement attacking the baseball team for “celebrating a week of obscene perversion” that features a “hideous, obscene, and outright disgusting display of perverse activities.”
Celebrating a week of obscene perversion
The Red Sox have been around long enough to know that "Pride Week" in Boston is a hideous, obscene, and outright disgusting display of perverse activities. (Plus, in recent years, more young people have been drawn in through Boston Pride's management of Massachusetts Youth Pride every May.)
And the Boston Red Sox organization are not only going to celebrate it at their ballpark, but will be financially supporting it from their ticket sales.
In an interview with the American Family Association’s news service OneNewsNow, the MassResistance’s president Brian Camenker called on fans to contact the team urging them to cancel “Pride Night at Fenway Park.” Camenker insists that he is just thinking about the children:
Homosexual-rights group Boston Pride says it is partnering with Fenway Park to sponsor "Pride Night," but a search of the Red Sox and Fenway Park websites by OneNewsNow did not show the event listed.
However, there is one event listed for Thursday night at Fenway Park - the Red Sox are kicking off their June after-school celebration, "Calling All Kids."
"Baseball is largely for kids, so why should homosexual activism be part of that?" asks Brian Camenker, president of the pro-family organization MassResistance.
"And you know a lot of just regular fans don't want to be part of that kind of thing when they go out for a baseball game," he adds.
"It's certainly nothing you expect." Camenker says the Red Sox organization is "going out of their way" to support the homosexual cause, including donating a percentage of Thursday night's proceeds to Boston Pride.
A special section of Fenway reportedly will also be designated for homosexuals who attend the ballgame.
"I called [the Red Sox] up and they don't seem to see how this is going to bother people," says Camenker. "They need to hear from people."
According to Rush, Obama is creating a government of “absolute despotism” and along with Attorney General Eric Holder is trying to “enslave the people.” Rush asks: “Is this not an identical situation to that in which America’s founders found themselves – and which they became willing to fight to overcome?”
He argues that Obama is trying to “import” Muslims, whom he claim are part of a “retrograde cult of oppression and death,” into the U.S. and turn them into “Obama’s cutthroat foot soldiers” who might be “mobilized to rise up, paralyze America with widespread terror attacks, and incite the chaos that will necessitate martial law and an end to our free society.”
It has been pointed out that the Boston Tea Party was carried out over confiscatory taxation on a scale far lower than that to which the average American is now obligated. Similarly, recent revelations concerning the egregious and illegal deeds of the Obama administration have given rise to the question of just how much our current situation parallels that of the men who founded this nation.
While it is certainly true that the level of bureaucracy, corruption and overreach in our federal government has grown to intolerable proportions, and that both pre-eminent political parties share blame for this, it is the administration of one Barack Hussein Obama who has evinced a design to reduce the American people under absolute despotism.
We have two men, Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, who have demonstrated absolutely no regard for the law nor the Constitution that enshrines that law. The irony of the fact that they both allegedly hold law degrees is only significant in this having provided them with the ability to more adroitly circumvent the law. Numerous individuals are complicit in their crimes, but Obama and Holder are the principals, along with Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, possibly the most dangerous woman who has ever lived.
To America’s founders, the ultimate determination of when a people are no longer obliged to support their government rested here: When the law is being used to enslave the people rather than serve them.
While Obama’s political doctrine is Marxism, this label is almost moot. What is germane to the discussion and important to Americans in the practical sense is that the ideal – or the goal of their fundamental transformation of America – is a political system wherein the people exist for and serve the state, rather than the state existing for and serving the people.
Is this not an identical situation to that in which America’s founders found themselves – and which they became willing to fight to overcome?
As some of us predicted in 2010, it has now become evident that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) is nothing more than the framework for a totalitarian state. Implemented in its entirety, it will completely obscure the last vestiges of our constitutional republic. The Internal Revenue Service, the Department of Justice and the Environmental Protection Agency have been used as tools to tyrannize Obama’s political opponents. The administration has engaged in almost innumerable clandestine and illegal activities at home and abroad, many of which have yet to come fully to light.
Since Obama took office, the establishment press and the Obama administration have treated Muslims with the deference of a benevolent interplanetary species that just landed with the sole intent of enriching the lot of humankind, rather than viewing Islam as the retrograde cult of oppression and death that it is. As reported in WND, as part of Obama’s effort to accommodate Muslims and import as many Third World Islamic malefactors as he possibly can as soon as he can into the U.S., he is increasing “outreach” to Muslims internationally via a series of symposia.
It has already been established that there are jihadi training camps within our borders and that the Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were members of a radical mosque in Boston. Yet not only does this administration fail to put an end to such things, it empowers them through their insinuation into government and with deferential policies.
Are Muslims intended to be Obama’s cutthroat foot soldiers, those who will be mobilized to rise up, paralyze America with widespread terror attacks, and incite the chaos that will necessitate martial law and an end to our free society?
With yet another poll coming out today showing that the majority of Americans support marriage equality, David Lane is calling on the “moral majority” to “wage war” against gay rights. Lane, who is coordinating Sen. Rand Paul’s efforts to reach out to evangelical voters for his potential presidential campaign, writes in WorldNetDaily today that “those who embrace homosexual marriage and homosexual Scouting,” along with “pagan public schools, pagan higher learning and pagan media,” are ushering in America’s collapse with their “multicultural false gods.”
“America’s survival is at stake, and this is not tall talk or exaggeration,” Lane maintains. “If the American experiment with freedom is to end after 237 years, let each of us commit to brawl all the way to the end.”
Where are the champions of Christ to save the nation from the pagan onslaught imposing homosexual marriage, homosexual scouts, 60 million babies done to death by abortion and red ink as far as the eye can see on America? Who will wage war for the Soul of America and trust the living God to deliver the pagan gods into our hands and restore America to her Judeo-Christian heritage and re-establish a Christian culture?
Let’s make it crystal clear: Those who embrace homosexual marriage and homosexual Scouting – or homosexuality in general – know little and practice nothing of Christianity. Notwithstanding Sen. Rob Portman – or the 1,400 Boy Scout delegates who buckled – Christian love is regulated not by impulse, but by principle. “We hence conclude, that not only the reprobates ought to be reproved, severely, and with sharp earnestness, but also the elect themselves, even those whom we deem to be children of God.” [John Calvin]
As to the future of America – and the collapse of this once-Christian nation – Christians must not only be allowed to have opinions, but politically, Christians must be retrained to war for the Soul of America and quit believing the fabricated whopper of the “Separation of Church and State,” the lie repeated ad nauseum by the left and liberals to keep Christian America – the moral majority – from imposing moral government on pagan public schools, pagan higher learning and pagan media. Bill Bennett’s insight, “… the two essential questions Plato posed as: Who teaches the children, and what do we teach them?” requires deep thought, soul-searching and a response from Christian America to the secular, politically correct and multicultural false gods imposing their religion on America’s children.
Polling shows that of the 65-80 million evangelical Christians who read their Bible, attend church and pray, half of those are not registered to vote, half of that half don’t vote, and of the 25 percent who voted in 2012, 22 percent of them voted for President Obama. Whether the mobilization of pastors and pews to save the nation goes against the grain of the pagan, liberal media elite is not relevant. America’s survival is at stake, and this is not tall talk or exaggeration.
If the American experiment with freedom is to end after 237 years, let each of us commit to brawl all the way to the end because, “Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization.” [Winston Churchill]
Bryan Fischer has a pretty simple solution for solving the problem of sexual assault in the military: ban women and gays.
On his radio program today, Fischer said that the purpose of public policy is to construct barriers to engagement in sinful behavior and so it makes no sense to allow women to serve in the military where they come into close contact with members of the opposite sex .
Fischer then went on to call for gays to likewise be banned from the military, and did so by misrepresenting an op-ed from the New York Times to claim that 90% of the sexual assaults in the military are "being committed by serial homosexual rapists":
Yesterday, Rep. Louie Gohmert joined the chorus of Republicans and Democrats who are criticizing Gov. Chris Christie for his decision to schedule a special election to replace the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg in October of this year. The congressman and Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg speculated that Christie wouldn't appoint a Republican to the seat (the governor has not made an announcement yet) because it would ruin his “bromance” with President Obama.
“Think about it, if he had just up and appointed a Republican replacement as he’s authorized to do, do you think the bromance will continue? Do you think the President will come let him win little toys for him and stuffed animals for him down at the fair?” Gohmert joked, “Do you think he would ever get another hug out on the beach from the President?”
Every day on his radio and television program, Glenn Beck makes various vague prophecies about how something is going to happen at some point in the future and even though he doesn't know what it will look like or when it will happen or how it will come about, you can rest assured that it will happen because he has a unique gift for being able to see how everything that is happening in the world is all connected and fits together into an overarching narrative that only Beck can understand or explain.
And then months or years down the road, when something inevitably happens, Beck seizes on it and declares that this is exactly what he was talking about when he first made his vague predictions!
On last night's program, Beck was at it again, declaring that we are on the verge of World War III ... and though Beck hopes that he is wrong, he knows that he isn't because he understands world history and history always repeats itself, so he is challenging anyone to prove him wrong.
"I'm a chess player," he stated, "that warns you, don't move there; three moves down, they got you.":
Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America once again touted his group’s staunch opposition to immigration reform yesterday, telling conservative talk show host Steve Deace that if a reform bill passes then “you can buh bye to your guns and buh bye to the rest of your freedom because this would be a country that had been californicated.”
Pratt claimed the Senate’s “scamnesty plan” would “bring in a gazillion Democrat voters” who will be mostly illiterate and “dependents.”
“They’re going to be probably just sitting around drawing welfare and voting Democrat,” Pratt said.
Pratt: The scamnesty plan is a plan to bring in a gazillion Democrat voters. The people who have not been given immigration status because they are a doctor or an engineer or some other skill that would be beneficial in the United States economy, but instead the people that would be given amnesty ultimately by this procedure that Rubio and company have been unleashing are those that don’t have even high school educations, are barely literate in their own Spanish language. I’m fluent in Spanish and I’ve spoken with some of these people and it’s amazing that they can’t even spell in Spanish when you have almost a completely phonetic language. I’ve taught people to read in Spanish if they could competently speak the language, I’ve taught them to read it’s that phonetic. Yet the people that would be coming in illiterate in Spanish, they’re going to be Democrats, they’re going to be dependents, they’re not going to be working at a nuclear reactor or a car factory, they’re going to be probably just sitting around drawing welfare and voting Democrat.
Deace: But don’t we have to pass this or we can’t win any more national elections? That’s what I keep being told.
Pratt: If we pass it we probably will guarantee not winning any more national elections.
Deace: There’s really only two conclusions to the Republicans peddling this: mass stupidity is one, the other is that they are just so tired of arguing with people like you and I about big government that they’ve just decided to go ahead and help the Democrats win. Pratt: And those are probably not mutually exclusive. What they’re doing then by bringing in this many Democrats, if they were to do that, means that by the time you get all of those folks into their citizenship status, our guess was about 2035, you can buh bye to your guns and buh bye to the rest of your freedom because this would be a country that had been californicated.
This schizophrenic approach has not gone unnoticed by Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) head William Gheen, who has sent a letter to Fox News executives is warning the network that they are committing the “greatest betrayal” against their fans by “literally working to displace and replace your most loyal viewers at the ballot box.”
He argues that “the current censorship and bias emanating from Fox News” in favor of immigration reform “is in effect leading your viewers to their own political, and possibly eventual physical, destruction.”
Gheen says that Fox News is creating a “Brave New 1984 Totalitarian World,” adding that the network realizes that “only through amnesty for illegals and further illegal immigration and non-assimilation will your investment in Fox News Latino pay off!”
“The new voting bloc of tens of millions of illegal aliens will render American conservatives and the Tea Party members permanently ineffectual in American elections,” Gheen writes. “Any hopes of reestablishing civilian control over Washington, DC, through peaceful and political means will vanish if legislation rubber stamping Obama's dictatorial decrees granting amnesty to illegals leads to eventual voting rights for illegal immigrants.”
Mr. Rupert Murdoch, Mr. Roger Ailes, and Fox News Show Hosts:
Over the last 8 years, I have been a guest on your network many times. But it appears that I, and most other opponents of illegal immigration and amnesty for illegal immigrants, are no longer welcome on Fox News now that your corporation is lobbying to pass immigration reform amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
The greatest betrayal of Fox News and all producers and show hosts participating in these illegal alien amnesty support efforts is that you are literally working to displace and replace your most loyal viewers at the ballot box.
The new voting bloc of tens of millions of illegal aliens will render American conservatives and the Tea Party members permanently ineffectual in American elections if the amnesty bill supported by Fox News passes.
Americans who overwhelmingly support border security, debt reduction, restrained taxation, and responsible government spending clearly do not have control of our own government at this time.
Any hopes of reestablishing civilian control over Washington, DC, through peaceful and political means will vanish if legislation rubber stamping Obama's dictatorial decrees granting amnesty to illegals leads to eventual voting rights for illegal immigrants.
So the current censorship and bias emanating from Fox News is in effect leading your viewers to their own political, and possibly eventual physical, destruction.
Your corporation has now created Fox News Latino which consistently produces terribly biased propaganda pieces that promote amnesty and illegal immigration while attacking any leaders or groups that oppose the invasion, which shows that you are now heavily financially invested in continuing illegal immigration into America and amnesty for illegal immigrants! If illegal immigration were to stop or reverse, we would not need Spanish language news in America in a decade. Only through amnesty for illegals and further illegal immigration and non-assimilation will your investment in Fox News Latino pay off!
With Fox News jumping on board with MSNBC, CNN, CBS, the Associated Press, George Soros, the Saudis, the Mexicans, the Chinese, and Barack Obama, and now with Google and Facebook, you all have this Brave New 1984 Totalitarian World wrapped up for us all, don't you?
What recourse will American citizens or any groups and leaders who should oppose this nation burying Globalist agenda have to reach out and communicate with others when almost all major communications points are now part of the same cabal?
Declaring that while pretty much every politician is, by definition, a sociopath, Daubenmire is particularly concerned about President Obama, who he compared to cult leader Jim Jones. Saying that unlike himself, who has a functioning conscience and obligation to speak the truth, Obama does not believe that he is not bound by such obligations because "he is a sick man":
Tony Perkins must be watching a lot of LOGO, as the Family Research Council president appears to be under the impression that gays and lesbians represent close to one out of three characters on TV. “Homosexuals make up 4% of the population, but they’re a whopping 30% of TV characters and storylines,” Perkins maintained on his daily radio commentary today, even though according to GLAAD, “LGBT characters account for 4.4% of scripted series regulars in the 2012-2013 broadcast television schedule.”
The FRC based the commentary on an article in the conservative National Catholic Register criticizing “Hollywood’s powerful homosexual culture.” The 30% figure Perkins cited does not refer to gay characters on TV but to one Catholic screenwriter’s claim that “based on her own experience, [homosexuals] make up 30% of Hollywood’s entertainment industry.”
Not only did Perkins manufacture the “30%” figure, he also alleged that “lovable gay characters” on TV are “make-believe people” whose “dangerous lifestyle is just another funny footnote.” He warned that these gay characters are being used “to desensitize America.”
Perkins asserted that in reality, gays are typically “dying of AIDS” and “bullying kids.”
“Of course, producers don’t show you the reality of homosexuality: the men and women dying of AIDS, or the same-sex couples threatening Christian businesses,” Perkins said. “They don’t cast the Dan Savages bullying kids or the parents kicked out of school for opposing gay curriculum.”
Is marriage headed for a Hollywood ending? Hello, I’m Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. The debate over same-sex marriage has been perfectly scripted by Hollywood. Television shows are full of lovable gay characters, whose dangerous lifestyle is just another funny footnote. Unfortunately for America, those make-believe people are having a real-life impact. In a new survey, almost 20% of Americans credit television with changing their minds on same-sex marriage. And that’s no accident. Homosexuals make up 4% of the population, but they’re a whopping 30% of TV characters and storylines. Liberals are using this barrage to desensitize America and viewers are buying it. Of course, producers don’t show you the reality of homosexuality: the men and women dying of AIDS, or the same-sex couples threatening Christian businesses. They don’t cast the Dan Savages bullying kids or the parents kicked out of school for opposing gay curriculum. Like most everything else on TV, it’s fiction. And the only way to fight it is knowing your role in speaking truth!
On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer brought on Scott Lively to bolster his assertions that scouting has always been used as a "major homosexual recruiting effort" going all the way back to Nazi Germany.
After ten minutes of pseudo-historical nonsense about how the German Wandervogel was designed to "revive the Greek ideal of pedagogic pederasty" and now the Boy Scouts had fallen to the same agenda, Lively declared that the Scouts had represented "the last secular resistance to homosexuality in our culture," which means that, within the next year, there is going to be "a blitzkrieg against the Church like we've never seen before" which will seek to wipe out the last remaining opposition to the gay agenda:
During a program on the conservative Christian television network Daystar on homosexuality, ex-gay therapist Jerry Mungadze insisted that he can prove his sexual orientation conversion efforts work because he has observed in his patients that after therapy the “areas of the brain that were showing the homosexuality show heterosexuality…the brain is able to go back and fire the way it is supposed to be.”
But Mungadze – who only has degrees in Biblical Studies and counselor education — wasn’t talking about actual brain scans. In fact, Mungadze’s “evidence” of brain transformation relies on crayon drawings.
Note that patients color in a map of the brain and Mungadze reads the map like a projective test. Apparently, pink relates to femininity, red to anger/aggression, and so on. He says he can tell gay people apart from straights; and when they revert to heterosexuality, he can tell by how they color between the lines.
Who needs brain scans when you have crayons?
As for the theory of the brain revealing itself via colors chosen by patients, I know of nothing to support it. Projective tests in general are not reliable and this one in particular looks like a method invented by Mungadze without reference to research or validation.
Cindy Jacobs has posted the most recent episode from her on-going series of "Ten Minute Prayer Schools," with the current episode focused on defeating "the Leviathan spirit."
Jacobs explained that this spirit is among the most dangerous and damaging ones at work today, being responsible for divorce, family feuds, sibling rivalries, church splits, and even tribal wars.
And this spirit cannot be defeated until it has been properly dealt with, Jacobs said, which means that people with Native American or any sort of indigenous heritage need to renounce it and repent for their ancestor's animism and worship of pagan spirits because otherwise this Leviathan spirit "will be very active in your bloodline":
