As Miranda noted the other day, anti-gay activists were not happy with the news that Burger King is planning to sell an LGBT pride themed burger at one San Francisco location. On today's radio program, Bryan Fischer said that the American Family Association is thinking about issuing an "action alert" about it out of concern that "if this isn't bottled up in San Francisco, this kind of nonsense, then it's going to be spreading across the entire fruited plain and you're going to be going to your Burger King in Des Moines, Iowa and you're going to have a rainbow color wrapper for your Whopper."
On top of that, Fischer just thinks the entire thing is a disastrous marketing idea because "when people sit down to eat a hamburger, the last thing they want to be thinking about is two guys having sex":
We all know how much certain conservative commentators, namely Glenn Beck, try to get away with making crazy and conspiratorial statements by insisting that they are just asking the question.
Yesterday far-right pundit Dave Daubenmire wrote an entire column devoted to just asking the question regarding his many concerns about the Lucifer-worshipping Democrats and “Satan/Alinsky/Obama,” including his thoughts on Jews running the media, chemtrails, the Illuminati, Common Core, voter fraud and FEMA camps.
I often hear from “loyal Democrats” who resent it when I say that those who vote for the Democrats are supporters of the haters of God. The playbook their current leadership uses gives honor to Lucifer. Scripture tells us that no one can serve two masters. You can't follow Jesus and vote for those who honor Lucifer.
It would be wise for you to take the time to read Alinsky's top 12 rules listed here.
Although we need to be equally alert to all of the techniques of Satan/Alinsky/Obama and how they employ their tactics, rule number five is the one I would like to focus on today.
“Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It's infuriating. It's irrational. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude, and mean, huh?They want to create anger and fear.”
So today I would like to lob a few thoughts your way and ask if it would make a difference in your approach to figuring out why things are so messed up, if you considered one simple question.
What if it was true? Here goes.
WHAT IF the President really did provide a fake birth certificate? What if He received aid as a foreign student? What if the President really was on the side of the Muslims?
WHAT IF the shredding of our borders was part of a bigger plan to destroy America? What if the Illuminati were real? What if a small group of bankers were pulling all of the strings?
WHAT IF the goal of the Departmental of Education was to make Americans dumber? What if they knew Common Core was designed to subvert America?
WHAT IF there really was something harmful in the “chemtrails” that are being sprayed on us?
WHAT IF the Kazar and Ashkenazi Jews really did control the media and the financial system? What if most modern Jews had no bloodline connection to Jesus?
WHAT IF “climate change” was a scientific fraud designed to control the lives of Americans? What if “the authorities” have no legal, rightful authority?
WHAT IF the FEMA camps were real and operational? Why? Who are they for?
WHAT IF your pastor was afraid to speak the Truth for fear of government retribution? What if his theology was wrong? What if YOURS was?
WHAT IF the voting machines were hacked? What if your vote was changed? What if illegal and dead people voted? What if the candidates were selected and not elected?
WHAT IF the return of the Nephilim was actually occurring? What if UFO's were actually invaders from a demonic realm?
What are the odds that ALL of the above are merely conspiracy theories? Question Authority.
Former Colorado Republican Rep. Tom Tancredo, said Wednesday that the crisis of Central American refugees at the southern border is “all part of a plan” by President Obama to “fundamentally transform America.”
Speaking with Newsmax host Steve Malzberg, Tancredo said that the president should simply ignore the Bush-era child-trafficking law that is complicating attempts to deal with child refugees.
But, citing a quote from the president that is frequently distorted and taken out of context by the Right, Tancredo said that Obama will keep all of the immigrants in the country as part of his plan to “fundamentally transform America.”
“This is all part of a plan,” he said. “And you know how this sounds, I know how people immediately go, ‘Oh, there’s a conspiracy theorist out there.’ Now, look. It’s not a conspiracy if he tells the world what he wants. If Obama says on numerous occasions, ‘I intend to fundamentally transform’ and then he begins doing it, it’s not a conspiracy. This is absolutely part of that."
It came as no surprise that following Bob Barr's recent attack on David Barton during a Republican primary debate, Glenn Beck spent several segments on his radio program today defending Barton, even bringing Barton onto the show so that he could blame the attacks on "a bunch of George Soros-funded bloggers and groups."
Before Barton called into the program, Beck likened the attacks on him to Malcolm X's attacks on Martin Luther King, insisting that Barton "is an amazing man, an amazing uniter ... David is an amazing, decent, honorable, loving, non-bigoted man."
"I've met bigots before in my life," Beck said, "David Barton is the farthest thing from it":
Long before Sarah Palin started calling for President Obama’s impeachment, conservative activist Alan Keyes had been consistently urging Republicans jump on the impeachment wagon, even suggesting that Jesus Christ favors impeaching the president.
According to Keyes, impeaching Obama would be the first step toward restoring God’s blessing on America by showing that we are repenting for the country’s sin of electing Obama, who defeated Keyes in the 2004 Illinois U.S. Senate race.
“Do this as a prayer to the Creator God whose authority over justice those principles acknowledge,” he writes today in WorldNetDaily. “Do this so that once again our nation may deserve to enjoy the blessings of that God-endowed liberty which has been, and by our faithfulness may yet continue to be, our common hope; our common life; our common good.”
Hello, Dr. Keyes. Even if the House were to impeach … you’d never get the Senate to convict. … What’s the point when the corruption extends into both parties and into both houses? Perhaps the following should be our main goal; we as a people MUST return to a loving relationship with God … we as a people MUST return to virtue. Is this not far more important than “the impeachment field – ripe for the harvest”?
In everything I write and everything I do my aim is to encourage people of faith to act like it when it comes to their vocation as citizens. This is why I have constantly emphasized that our first order of business as American citizens is to remember and apply the principles on which our nation is founded, starting with the self-evident truth that we “are created equal and endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights.”
However, achieving this goal cannot be a matter of lip-service to faith. From the first, Christ preached repentance. If we talk about the need to return to God and yet refuse to turn to Him, even in the hour of our greatest need, we are not repentant. Indeed, we act like an obese person who talks about losing weight but who will not turn away from overeating and idleness and back to the standard of healthy living in order to do so.
Repentance is a work of God’s grace, by which His Spirit renews within us the activity of life, much as it did when it mingled with the man of dust in order that he should become a living soul. By this renewal of life God calls us to return to Him, through the way of truth and life that He has prepared and offered us for our salvation. We signify our acceptance of His offer when we walk in this way, not when we talk about the need to do so and then let the deceitful cavils of fear paralyze our goodwill.
I urge you to visit the Pledge to Impeach website. I urge you conscientiously to ponder the cogent facts and reasoning you will find there. I urge you to commit yourself to the Pledge to impeach mobilization effort. I urge you thereafter to encourage all the like-minded people you know and can influence to do the same.
Do this as an act of good faith, predicated upon the principles of America’s independence as a nation. Do this as a prayer to the Creator God whose authority over justice those principles acknowledge. Do this so that once again our nation may deserve to enjoy the blessings of that God-endowed liberty which has been, and by our faithfulness may yet continue to be, our common hope; our common life; our common good.
Citing the supposed persecution of Christian service members, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council said today that the Obama administration is imposing Islamic law in the military.
Perkins’ commentary suggests that the military is enforcing Islamic law on service members stationed in Bahrain during Ramadan. But the Stars and Stripes story he cites explains that the military has merely informed American service members about how to stay in compliance with local laws in Bahrain, where the U.S. has a large base, during Ramadan: “While not required to fast during Ramadan, in Bahrain, Americans can be fined or detained by local authorities for eating, drinking or smoking in public when off-base during daylight hours.”
The Navy is, however, requiring conservative long-sleeved shirts and blouses and long pants and skirts to adhere to local customs.
The myth-busting website Snopes has knocked the “greatly exaggerated” claims based on the Stars and Stripes article, noting that service members stationed in Islamic countries have traditionally had to observe local laws during Ramadan, noting that “as with other local laws, they can be detained by authorities for breaking them.”
Thanks to the Obama administration, our military can finally practice a religion: Islam's! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. While the military is kicking Bibles off of bases and forcing verses to be erased from personal spaces, it seems there is plenty of room for Ramadan. The month-long Muslim holiday kicked off last week, and plenty of troops are celebrating -- whether they want to or not. According to the Stars and Stripes newspaper, the Pentagon is forcing service members to honor the Ramadan rules on everything from clothing to smoking to drinking coffee. During the fast, soldiers were even told they'd be fined for eating or drinking off-base. To most of our troops, who can't even practice their own religion under this administration, this a slap in the face. Our troops are expected to observe the Muslim faith while the expression of their own Christianity is unwelcome in the military fighting for freedom. “Let us redeem the time for certainly the days are evil.”
Religious Right activist Bradlee Dean is not too pleased with the increasing number of Christian denominations accepting LGBT people, claiming that the “apostate” churches are “counterfeits that open doors wide to the gates of hell” and are “spitting toward Heaven.”
Dean also links President Obama and his “criminal, ‘sodomite-advocating’ administration” to these “effeminate” Christians, likening the president to the “evil king” Jeroboam.
Last week we witnessed four denominations emboldened by this criminal, “sodomite-advocating” administration, joining the ranks of the apostate in America. Namely, the United Church of Christ (that claims 1 million members with about 5,200 congregations), the Presbyterian Church USA, the Moravians, who voted to ordain gay clergy, as we as the [Affirming] Pentecostal Church International (1 Timothy 4:1).
J. Bennett Guess, United Church of Christ’s first openly gay church executive, said that he was, “being a bold voice for progressive Christianity.” This would be like a criminal with a police badge trying to convince everyone that he is upright simply because of his man-ordained title.
This is spitting toward Heaven; and rest assured, they (along with whoever tolerates their crimes) will fall on their own backs.
Study the past!
When it comes to the issues at hand concerning our culture, we can clearly see that the majority of professed Christians are guilty of contributing to America’s state of moral anarchy (which they so boldly proclaim), proven by their support of antinomianism and the effeminate lifestyles they perpetuate.
It is revealing that these “churches” are “coming out” and exposing “what” and “who” real Christians have always known them to truly be: counterfeits that open doors wide to the gates of hell.
Side note: This is nothing new. It reminds me of an evil king named Jeroboam in 1 Kings 12:31, who “made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi.” These appointed priests were not ordained or appointed to stand in the place of or as God’s ministers, by God. Yet, there they were because of an evil king (a man) who usurped himself above God and His Law. (By the way, Barack Hussein Obama has appointed over 225 radical homosexuals, lesbians and transvestites to governmental positions.) What was their end? Destruction.
The Ruth Institute's Jennifer Johnson wrote on the organization's blog yesterday that marriage equality advocates who criticize the Religious Right for singling out gay marriage while ignoring straight divorce "have a point."
"Have we been too focused on “same sex marriage” and not focused enough on divorce?" she asks. "I think so."
"Divorce is a big problem that Christians have not confronted adequately," she writes. "Thus, we have lost our witness and moral authority in regards to the institution of marriage. At least, that’s how it looks to me. "
The Ruth Institute — which until last year was affiliated with the National Organization for Marriage — doesn't always conform with the Religious Right's messaging, most recently taking issue with the movement's "whining" persecution rhetoric.
That's not to say that the rest of the Religious Right doesn't care about divorce — the advent of no-fault divorce is frequently brought up as as a milestone in the slippery slope of the sexual revolution, and "covenant marriage" laws are popular among some activists. (Family Research Council president Tony Perkins sponsored the nation's first covenant marriage law when he was a Louisiana state legislator.) But the movement as a whole knows that villainizing people who get divorced is going to be a less popular strategy than scapegoating the much smaller LGBT population.
Georgia State Senator Barry Loudermilk is currently seeking the Republican Party's nomination for a seat in Congress and has been touting the endorsement he received from "nationally recognized author, historian and constitutional expert David Barton."
Loudermilk's admiration of Barton is no secret, given that he mindlessly repeats Barton's lies in his own presentations, but now it seems that it is becoming an issue in his campaign as he was asked to repudiate Barton's endorsement earlier this week during a debate with his GOP primary opponent, former Congressman Bob Barr.
A clip from the debate was posted on YouTube by Bartowpolitics showing Barr noting that Loudermilk has very proudly accepted Barton's endorsement despite the fact, Barr said, that Barton "has been roundly and uniformly criticized with facts for taking positions that are anti-Semitic [and] that are against women voting."
Barr asked Loudermilk to disavow Barton's endorsement, but Loudermilk refused to do so, saying that he had no idea where Barr was getting his information and saying that Barton "had done a tremendous job of reintroducing Americans to their true heritage ... so, no, I'm not going to stand out here and disavow an endorsement of somebody that I believe has done a tremendous job in reintroducing Americans to their true heritage":
The allegation that Barton spoke to anti-Semitic groups stems back over twenty years and Barton has consistently insisted that he was not aware of the views of some of the groups that he addressed.
As for the claim that Barton is "against women voting," that comes from an ironically Bartonesque misrepresentation of a radio program he did earlier this year when he asserted that the Founding Fathers did not grant women the right to vote in order "to keep the family together."
We have listened to literally thousands of hours of Barton's programs and presentations and he can be justifiably criticized for a lot of things (most notably, being a serial liar), but being anti-Semitic and against women voting should not be among them.
We’ve been reporting on the candidacy of Michael Peroutka, the 2004 presidential nominee for the U.S. Constitution Party and now the apparent GOP nominee for a county council seat in Anne Arundel, Maryland. It is frankly hard to imagine a more extremist candidate for public office.
He is a radical Christian Reconstructionist and southern secessionist who argues that the Maryland General Assembly is “no longer a valid legislative body” because it has passed laws he thinks are violations of “God’s law.” He took part in Larry Klayman’s “revolutionary” rally last November, which did not achieve its stated goal of forcing President Obama out of office. He asked the white nationalist League of the South for help in his campaign. His family foundation gave a dinosaur fossil to the Creationist Museum to keep it out of the hands of evolution-promoting scientists. And notably, for a GOP candidate, he disparages “the Republican Party and their brand of worthless, Godless, unprincipled conservatism.”
Peroutka’s partner at the Institute on the Constitution, David Whitney, ran for the same seat in the Democratic primary, and lost. But another ideological compatriot, Joseph Delimater, won the uncontested GOP primary for county sheriff. Frederick Clarkson points out that Delimater’s campaign website argues that it’s the responsibility of a county councilman and sheriff to resist implementation of any law that violates God’s law.
Peroutka’s campaign spokesman John Lofton told the Capital Gazette newspaper that the candidate “would evaluate each piece of legislation to be sure it was authorized by God in the Bible, the U.S. Constitution and the Anne Arundel County Charter.” Lofton was communications director for Peroutka’s 2004 presidential campaign and has also served as communications director for Peroutka's Institute on the Constitution.
Like Peroutka, Lofton has expressed contempt for the Republican Party, calling himself a “Recovering Republican,” and explaining on his website, “Being a Republican is not a disease; it is a choice – a very bad choice, but a choice nonetheless.”
Lofton was a movement conservative until he became enamored of Christian Reconstructionist R.J. Rushdoony and disillusioned that the conservative movement was not sufficiently focused on God. A few years ago he denounced the conservative movement, saying that “Dunghill Rejects” was the “perfect name” for “for the Godless, anti-Christian, modern ‘conservative movement.’”
Lofton has been invited to speak about God and Government at Liberty University’s Helms School of Government. He said the purpose of the Institute on the Constitution’s God and Government project – which encourages individuals to use public comment periods at local government meetings to deliver packaged two-minute statements – is “to tell our elected officials that government is from God and therefore their first duty is to obey God and to administer and apply his law.”
On his Christian Post blog, Lofton has asked whether President Obama is wearing a “What Would Satan Do?” bracelet and decreed that sending children to public schools is “spiritual child abuse” and a sin.
And in reference to an article about evangelicals disagreeing on budget priorities, he wrote that “there should be no disagreement among those who believe the Bible is true. Because it is crystal clear that in God's Word He gives NO AUTHORITY to civil government (Caesar) to give health, education or welfare to ANYBODY. If people need help, it is the role of the Church --- God's people --- to provide this help and NOT government.” He insists, “Man-made ‘laws’ that contradict God's Law are not law.”
Lofton’s Facebook page indicates that he shares Peroutka’s contempt for many contemporary political figures. He writes that President Obama “heads up the most powerful terrorist organization in the world, the American government.”
This week Lofton dismissed as “IDOLATROUS LINCOLN-WORSHIPPING CRAP” an article in which the Religious Right’s intellectual godfather, Robert George, wrote that Lincoln had, by saving the union, “completed, in a sense, America’s founding.”
On the 4th of July Lofton bragged that his local paper had printed his letter to the editor, which denounced the Laurel, Maryland, City Council for allowing a Hindu to open a meeting “by invoking false Gods,” which he called “an act of appalling idolatrous idiocy which invites God – the God of the Bible, the only true God there is – to curse us.”
Back in 2002, Lofton was interviewed by Stephen Colbert for The Daily Show. He denounced Lynn Cheney’s children’s book as “child abuse” for including Martin Luther King and a reference to the Day of the Dead holiday, which he said is “from the pit of hell.”
The effort to block busses of Central American refugees travelling through Murrieta, California, over the July 4th weekend drew any number of fringe right-wing extremists, including radio host Pete Santilli, who offered a 24/7 live webcast of his stay.
In one webcast posted on July 4, Santilli approached a number of local police officers demanded that they bring him the county sheriff. He also told them that he had called 911 but that that strategy had also failed to summon the sheriff. (Many militia groups maintain that the sheriff is the only legitimate law enforcement officer).
“I almost died at Bundy ranch because the sheriff didn’t show up,” Santilli told one officer, referring to his time at the Bundy ranch in Nevada, where he spent time harassing a Mexican-American reporter.
Santilli told one Murrieta police officer that he was “here for a peaceful protest” but that by failing to put him in contact with the sheriff “what you guys are creating is a violent one.”
“Are you guys domestic terrorists now?” he yelled after the officer walked away. “You guys are terrorizing the public.”
“They’re going to deliver a bus here with a bunch of anarchists and create a volatile situation on the 4th of July. That’s an incitement,” he yelled.
At one point, Santilli got his hands on a bullhorn and earned a cheer from the crowd when he told the officers, “You want to send a bus to us right in front of the media so Obama can publicly display what happens to people who stop busses with infected immigrants. Obama wants to send a message and you’re helping to facilitate it.”
Mashable’s Gina Piccalo writes today about the split among evangelical conservatives on the issue of immigration reform. While some evangelical activists have cited biblical values to support comprehensive immigration reform, others — such as Phyllis Schlafly, David Barton and Bryan Fischer — are busily trawling through the Bible for passages to justify their opposition.
Piccalo interviews Americans for Legal Immigration’s William Gheen, who it turns out also takes a Christian nationalist view of his opposition to immigration reform. Gheen conveniently escapes any theological difficulty when it comes to dealing with the thousands of Central American child refugees on the southern border by claiming that the violence they are escaping is a hoax:
"Illegal immigration is the antithesis of Christianity,” says William Gheen, Raleigh, N.C.-based president of Americans For Legal Immigration. “It’s a gross mischaracterization of Christianity to apply it to tolerating the mass lawlessness, death and damages involved in illegal immigration.”
When asked about those children crossing the border in search of refuge from gang-related violence and death, Americans for Legal Immigration president Gheen said immigrant children are coached by money-hungry smugglers who give them “cheat sheets” with fabricated stories of woe, crafted to ensure their amnesty. “There’s no mass slaughter of children in any of the host countries,” Gheen said. “There’s no documentation of any mass slaughter...The children are reciting lines. This is being orchestrated.”
Gheen sounded the same note in an interview Tuesday with VCY America, linking immigration reform proponents with the “anti-Christ culture flooding up through the united states in our movies, in the TV shows, in the minds of people where they hate Duck Dynasty or anything associated with Christians.”
He said that immigrants’ rights groups are anti-Christian because “they don’t like laws, they don’t like borders”: “They like to equate Christians with Nazis and Klansmen and all sorts of stuff like that because Christians try to show any type of restraint on behavior. And they don’t want any restraint on any behaviors, whether it’s criminal or not. They don’t like laws, they don’t like borders. It’s anything goes, people do whatever they want.”
In an interview with Jim Schneider of VCY America on Tuesday, anti-immigrant activist William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC claimed that in the event of a U.S.- China war over the Taiwan Strait, China will recruit undocumented immigrants to fight the U.S. from within and will then give them American land, a move he compared to Abraham Lincoln giving land to former slaves after recruiting blacks to fight in the Civil War.
“Once again, with China, the Pentagon has reports from war colleges saying, ‘We’ve got large groups of people’ — and they won’t say who they are, but they’re talking about the 20-plus million illegal immigrants — they’re like, ‘We’ve got large groups of people that might not be fond of the Constitution that could be called upon by a foreign power in case of conflict,” Gheen said.
“What they’re talking about is, let’s say that the United States and China end up having to go to war tomorrow over the Taiwan Strait. Well, all the sudden, China pulls an Abraham Lincoln on us and says, ‘Hey, illegals, we’ll give you the whole place, just punch America in the gut for us.’ And America won’t be able to sustain our fleet. America can be taken out by a sneak attack from within.”
Gheen shared this theory at the end of a long rant in response to Schneider asking him if ISIS is trying to exploit the refugee crisis on the southern border to sneak terrorist sleeper cells into the United States.
Gheen replied that terrorist cells were already in the country in the form of Muslim-Americans colluding with Mexican drug cartels to send “precious and strategic metals” to China and get “everybody’s kids and grandkids” “hooked on cocaine and methamphetamine" and then snort their inheritances "all right up their nose and out of the country into Mexico and the on to Saudi Arabia."
“All of that destruction, the deconstruction of the United States, the planned demolition of the United States is all taking place, it’s a plan,” he said. “If you’re a terrorist, you really wouldn’t want to do anything to mess that up. If you’re a sleeper cell, you don’t want to go blow up the town hall and get the locals all upset because right now you’re bringing in more and more of your people and taking over whole communities and neighborhoods and building a mosque on every block.”
Earlier in the interview, Gheen claimed that President Obama is “sponsoring and facilitating” an immigrant “invasion” so “what he sees as evil Whitey can’t ever do anything to come back from it.”
The president, he added “may have our full destruction in mind.”
James David Manning, the New York pastor who has warned of "Obama's homo-demons" and posted a "Stone Homos" sign on his church, hosted Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality on his radio show this week.
LaBarbera, who has devoted his entire life to combating gay rights, accused President Obama of being "obsessed" with homosexuality: "He's pandering to such a degree that it's like there is a spiritual force behind this, because who can explain the obsession that Barack Obama and his administration have for this issue."
LaBarbera also maintained that men are gay because they are too afraid of marrying a woman and having kids, as a "real man" would, and instead just want "the cheap orgasm."
"Homosexuality is robbing the potential husbands of women in the black community, and that's applicable to all women. I think homosexuality is one sense offers to men, if I can say this on your program, it offers the cheap orgasm. It's a lot harder to be a man, a real man and have a family, court a woman, marry a woman, have children, raise a family."
The anti-LGBT activist also said parents "have to start inoculating kids" against homosexuality and the "evil" of same-sex marriage. If someone tells them they are gay, LaBarbera advises, one should respond by asking: "Are you really? Because I don't think God wants homosexuality."
Appearing on Steve Malzberg's Newsmax radio program yesterday, Rep. Steve King called upon the governors of the states along the southern border to call out their national guard units and seal the border because otherwise America will be overrun with billions of undocumented immigrants by the time President Obama leaves office.
Saying that since Obama has the resources necessary to close the border but is refusing to do so, King therefore urged border governors to call up their National Guard units and do it themselves because soon "it won't be any longer a question of whether we can deport eleven million people; it will be tens of millions more and the question will be how many billion people can we let into the United States?"
"And I say that term 'billion,' I didn't just pull it out of the air," King made clear, "there's seven billion people on the planet and over half of them would like to be in America":
Rev. Austin Miles, the Renew America columnist who last claimed that President Obama will soon round up conservatives, is out with a column today which begins by stating that the president "spent his 4th of July at a Mosque and invited Muslims to be with him at the White House."
Miles must be getting his news from the National Report, a satirical, fake "news" outlet similar to The Onion. Their Fourth of July-themed article, like other fake stories from the website, has gone viral among Obama-haters.
Miles then goes on to suggest First Lady Michelle Obama was actually born "Michael LaVaughn Robinson," a claim that is also sourced back to an article that is clearly a joke. Apparently, the First Lady was also a linebacker for the Oregon State Beavers.
The best 4th of July celebration of all was the one held on the grounds of theU.S. Capitol. And how good it was to see shared patriotism, something we need more of.
While America was watching this tribute to our country, Obama, according to news reports, spent his 4th of July at a Mosque and invited Muslims to be with him at the White House.
At this moment, Obama is trying to get over a billion dollars to accommodate the illegal immigrants-future Democrat voters-who are flooding across the border. He will give these people all the care including medical care they need, while our servicemen are having even their pain killers withheld from them so that personnel can use that medication for their own partying and highs.
Obama has already wrecked our military by shoe-horning in gays to openly flaunt their homosexuality. The sexual assault cases have more than doubled since Obama opened that door which creates havoc in the barracks..
When I was in service, there were a couple of gays who were "buddies." We all knew who and what they were, but they did not flaunt it nor attempt to come on to others. They were good soldiers and well liked.
What did Joan Rivers mean when she called Obama Gay and Michelle Trans on national TV? Actually that idea has been bandied about for some time. There will no doubt be more to come. It is interesting to Google the name, Michael LaVaughn Robinson who was born in Chicago along withMichelle Obama.
Anti-gay activist and author of gay erotica Robert Oscar Lopez has compiled a list of 300 incidents that he thinks illustrate the scourge of “homofascism.” He writes today in the American Thinker that “homofacism” is “less nationalistic than past fascisms, though more invasive and consuming because it polices interpersonal relationships and interior thoughts in a way that earlier police states did not.” He adds that the movement “it is violent, even though we tend not to think of the movement as violent because many still stereotype gays as delicate, and the violence is usually carried out through the seemingly legitimate auspices of the state.”
There is a mass movement aimed at stifling the autonomy of natural relationships – friendships, familial love, romantic love, human reverence for the divine – and subverting such relationships to the punitive power of an intrusive state. It is as sweeping and menacing as past isms, including fascism, to which it reveals a number of striking resemblances.
It is difficult to comprehend, partly because it operates so often with emotional subterfuge, and partly because it is unprecedented. It is less nationalistic than past fascisms, though more invasive and consuming because it polices interpersonal relationships and interior thoughts in a way that earlier police states did not. I have come to realize, though, that it is violent, even though we tend not to think of the movement as violent because many still stereotype gays as delicate, and the violence is usually carried out through the seemingly legitimate auspices of the state.
This strange fascism has grown under the guise of advocating for a marginalized and even obscure population – homosexuals and bisexuals – whose interests are in no way served by this movement, and who are themselves some of the people most vulnerable to repression by it. The stakes are huge, the urgency serious. We have to call it something, and its name should evoke the dramatic emergency it is presenting to the globe. So let’s just call it “homofascism” for simplicity’s sake.
The thought crosses my mind quite often: could I have made a difference if I’d come forward and spoken out in 2004? In 2000? In 1994? Homofascism feeds on silence. The less you confront it, the more it hunts you down and strikes at you. It is a strange beast. Perhaps if conservatives had stopped being so afraid of offending people and taken this threat seriously twenty years ago, many of the victims catalogued in our 300 list would not have been prey for the search-and-destroy missions of the gay lobby.
But regrets do little. We need to move forward. My allies’ purpose in archiving the history of homofascism is to provide a resource, to make sure that people on our side know how high the stakes are, and how false the veneers of the other side are. We are facing a vicious, lethal enemy, and we have to fight back accordingly. Ever forward.
Matt Barber appeared on Janet Mefferd's radio program yesterday in order to discuss a recent article in Politico Magazine entitled "Evangelicals Are Changing Their Minds on Gay Marriage" which both he and Mefferd, of course, dismissed as nothing but pro-gay liberal propaganda.
During the course of the discussion, Mefferd asked Barber what he thinks about the fact that gay groups are being allowed to form at some Christian universities, with Barber replying that parents ought to think twice before allowing their kids to attend such a school because they'd certainly never let them attend a school that allowed "a pedophilia-affirming club or an incest-affirming club" to form on campus.
"I would just ask parents to do a test," Barber said. "Replace LGBT or gay with any other sexual sin. If there's an adultery-affirming club at your potential university where you're sending your kids. Or a pedophilia-affirming club or an incest-affirming club. Well, homosexuality is among all of the sins, the sexual sins that are clearly itemized throughout Scripture in both the Old and New Testament. But for some reason, the propaganda has stuck and it's this particular sexual sin that gets special treatment":
It is truly amazing how conservative activists continue to harp on “judicial activism,” while supporting sweeping judicial decisions that happen to go their way.
For instance, just a couple of weeks ago, Bob Vander Plaats of The Family Leader was celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case but today he talked with James Dobson about how when it comes to gay rights cases “the Supreme Court is starting to believe that they are the Supreme Being” and calling the principle of judicial review “nonsense.”
Vander Plaats and Dobson both lamented the Supreme Court’s 1803 decision in Marbury v. Madison, which established the principle of judicial review, which Vander Plaats said meant “we’ve had 50 years of law school teaching the lawyers that no, the courts do make law, which is complete nonsense. And God help us if that ever becomes the rule in our day.”
Vander Plaats and Dobson echoed Mike Huckabee, who insisted last month that "this notion that when the Supreme Court says something it’s the last word is fundamentally unconstitutional and wrong."
Later the “Family Talk” interview, Vander Plaats told Dobson that Americans’ pursuit of “all sort of lustful living” has made us God’s “prodigal son.”
"I just hope we're not feeding with the pigs when we decide to turn back to Him," he added.
