Even Pat Robertson Thinks Young Earth Creationism Is A 'Joke'

Back in 2012, televangelist Pat Robertson provoked the ire of Young Earth Creationists when he rejected their claim that the earth is approximately 6,000 years old. Today on the 700 Club, Robertson responded to the debate between Bill Nye and Young Earth Creationist leader Ken Ham — who criticized Robertson’s remarks on creationism as a “destructive teaching” that “gives more fodder to the secularists” — by once again rebuking Young Earth Creationism and the chronology system designed by James Ussher.

“Let’s face it, there was a bishop [Ussher] who added up the dates listed in Genesis and he came up with the world had been around for 6,000 years,” Robertson said. “There ain’t no way that’s possible. To say that it all came about in 6,000 years is just nonsense and I think it’s time we come off of that stuff and say this isn’t possible.”

He continued: “We’ve got to be realistic that the dating of Bishop Ussher just doesn’t comport with anything that is found in science and you can’t just totally deny the geological formations that are out there.”

Robertson added that he disagrees with “evolution as it is currently presented” and knocked Creationists: “Let’s be real, let’s not make a joke of ourselves.”

Renew America Calls For Anti-Gay Secessionist Movement…Again

Another columnist for Renew America is floating the idea of secession as a way for states to refuse to recognize marriage equality. Last year, columnist Paul Craft called for states to “secede from the union” in order to maintain their bans on same-sex marriage. Now, Selwyn Duke is proposing the U.S. copy the dissolution of Yugoslavia and break up over gay rights.

Duke predicts that it is only a matter of time before cultural differences in America will become so vast that people cannot coexist. Conservatives, Duke claims, should begin to “hate” and “loathe what the liberals stand for,” and begin to view them as “the ‘other.’”

“We need sort of an Amish jihad, a deep love of the good and hatred of the evil that translates into action,” Duke continues. “But there is a prerequisite for this, and it brings us to something both the Amish and Muslim jihadists have in common.”

"People can do what they want. How does faux marriage affect me, anyway?" (This is the point British "conservatives" have reached.)

And at an even later juncture it's, "Why shouldn't homosexuals have the right to 'marry'? It's a matter of equality." (Just ask some "conservatives" in Sweden.)



Now, all this perhaps sounds hopeless. Are we damned to inexorable and irrevocable movement toward the "left," at least until the complete collapse of civilization is wrought? Well, there is an alternative to assimilation.

Separation.

There has been some talk of secession lately. But note that there is a prerequisite for political separation: cultural separation. Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Slovenia didn't become their own nations because they suddenly thought the name Yugoslavia was no longer cool, but because of profound cultural differences. And Catalans in Spain some time back empowered parties that have called for an independence referendum this year because of cultural differences. Make the cultural differences great enough, and separation (assuming you can avoid bondage via a governmental iron fist, which is the other possibility) is a natural by-product.



We only need to look at how it's done all over the world. And there are two ways. To illustrate the first, consider how ardent Muslims avoid being subsumed. They don't view fellow citizens in a host nation as national brothers.

But as the "other."

Oh, the others may occupy the same borders, but they are as alien as anyone outside them. Their culture is to be rejected not just because it's decadent and despicable – and our liberal-created variety is certainly those things – but because it is of the other. So it is with the others' laws, social codes, and traditions, too: they are born of an infidel, alien culture and are to be viewed with extreme suspicion if not hostility.

And this is precisely how leftists should be viewed.

For this to work, our instincts must be thus: If liberals say left, we go right. If they say down, we say up. If they scream "Change!" we shout all the louder "Tradition!" and then push for our own change – tradition's restoration.

Note here that I'm not speaking of a cold intellectual understanding of the issues, which, don't get me wrong, is important. But just as it is passion that makes a man fight for a woman, it is passion that makes you fight for a cause. Loathe what the liberals stand for, meet their agenda with animosity, cultivate a visceral desire to wipe it from the face of the Earth. Hate, hate, hate it with the fires of a thousand burning suns.



But the proper combination is obvious. We need sort of an Amish jihad, a deep love of the good and hatred of the evil that translates into action. But there is a prerequisite for this, and it brings us to something both the Amish and Muslim jihadists have in common.

Glenn Beck Gets Into Character To Demonstrate ... Something

Glenn Beck has spent several segments on his radio show mocking other networks for their embarrassingly bad bit in which program hosts dress up and attempt to produce humorous skits in an effort to dramatize an issue or explain a point.

Obviously, when other people do it, it is painful and excruciating to watch and the results are inevitably stupid and not at all funny, but when Beck does it, it is brilliant ... which is why, last night, he transformed his television program into a black and white film noir spoof so that he could explain why the proposed MyRA savings plan is no different than playing a slot machine by telling some confusing story about a down-on-his luck chump named Lucky and a legless prostitute named Charlie:

As we noted the other day, at this point Beck's radio and television programs are becoming nothing more than displays of his own hypocrisy, as he mocks, attacks, and criticizes others for doing the exact things he does on a regular basis.

Garrow: Obama Will Soon Implement Sharia Law & Kill People By Guillotine

In an interview last month with The Rundown, right-wing huckster Jim Garrow cited the completely bogus conspiracy theory that Obamacare is paving the way for legal decapitation by guillotine, which he claims is part of President Obama’s plan to impose Islamic law on America.

We wonder if the decapitations will be led by the alien-Canadian army that Garrow keeps talking about.

It’s interesting that people now are in a position to make a choice: Will you protect America and the citizens of America, ‘We the People,’ will you honor the Constitution? Or will you become a lackey and listen to the despot and follow his direction and basically start Murder, Inc.? Because that’s where it’s going to go. What happened now, just recently? We now have a part of Obamacare where we now have legal execution by guillotine. Did you see the list? It’s been added to the list.



If Obama is a Muslim, if the Muslims when they dominate Christians, if what they do is kill them by taking off their heads, decapitation by the sword, this is just another sword, it’s another way, it’s another mollification of Muslims, of Islam, it’s another lining up, paralleling what’s right and able to be done in America, legally, with what the Muslims do. This is dhimmitude, submission, submission to Islam and the traditions of Islam. Done by that bunch of wackos, that bunch of crazies, traitors in the White House led by Mr. Obama.

Family Research Institute: 'Capital Punishment Is Warranted' For Homosexuality

After endorsing Uganda’s crackdown on gay people, the Family Research Institute has posted another statement saluting the country for deciding to “be harsh with those who choose to act on homosexual desires.”

The group, which is led by Paul Cameron, also insisted that the death penalty remain an option in punishing gays: “Depending on the severity of the homosexual offense, a fine, prison time or even capital punishment is warranted. The most important thing is to make it illegal, and thus keep those who fancy it (or seem addicted to it), off the streets, out of schools, with no ‘right’ to proselytize or advertise their preferences. (Current Russian law tries to do this without making the activity illegal; in most of the West, it must be made illegal first.)”

The FRI isn’t the only Religious Right group sympathetic to Uganda’s anti-gay stance: the American Family Association and the Family Research Council have also defended the proposed Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

After comparing homosexuality to incest, rape, bestiality and child abuse—and even arguing that one out of three gay men are guilty of “molesting/raping children or teens”—the group argued that gay people don’t exist. The FRI reasons that a person who identifies as gay is no different from those who see themselves as “Krafts” because they “so strongly prefer Kraft Macaroni and Cheese that the will eat almost nothing else.”

In a sense, there are no ‘homosexuals.’ The Apostle Paul condemns ‘males who have sex with males,’ which is both more precise and less deceptive than labeling as ‘homosexuals’ those who act upon their homosexual desires. Gay activists and the psychiatric professions have reason to use the term “homosexuals” – the former to ‘be a people’ and the latter to bill for a ‘condition.’ But those who so strongly prefer Kraft Macaroni and Cheese that they will eat almost nothing else are no more ‘Krafts’ than those are ‘homosexuals’ who so strongly prefer homosexual sex that they will seldom have heterosexual sex.

The reality is that the vast majority of males who have sex with males have also had sex with females, and almost all females who have had sex with females have had sex with males! ‘Gays’ and ‘lesbians’ may currently prefer sex with others of their sex, but they will, and do, have sex with the opposite sex depending on the situation. Indeed, a large minority of gays and a majority of lesbians report having “been in love with” a member of the opposite sex. We agree with Alfred Kinsey that homosexual interests are a ‘preference.’ The use of the weird term ‘orientation’ is largely to obfuscate the fact that who you have sex with is a choice and not at all necessary to survive, unlike, say, breathing or eating.

Not all sin warrants public laws against it. But many sins do, including many sexual sins. In the past, the Christian Church saw fit to lobby for public legal sanctions against fornication, rape, adultery, divorce, bestiality, incest, child molestation, etc. Some of those sanctions are still on the books and enforced, with little complaint (e.g., rape, child molestation). Until quite recently, homosexual activity also was illegal everywhere in the United States – in direct line with Christian influence – along with almost every other country.

But now under pressure from gay activists and the apathy of a modern Church which is frankly ignorant of the destructive consequences of homosexual behavior and eager to regard homosexuality as a kind of ‘victimless crime’ even if perhaps still sinful (similar to fornication, adultery, or divorce), American legal sanctions against homosexuality have been expunged and the race begun toward full gay marriage rights.



The historic Christian Church lobbied for laws against homosexual behavior, deeming it a personal and societal threat. Today, we should do no less. Depending on the severity of the homosexual offense, a fine, prison time or even capital punishment is warranted. The most important thing is to make it illegal, and thus keep those who fancy it (or seem addicted to it), off the streets, out of schools, with no ‘right’ to proselytize or advertise their preferences. (Current Russian law tries to do this without making the activity illegal; in most of the West, it must be made illegal first.)



Once it is legalized, homosexuality seeks to grow. Many of those ‘sold out’ to homosexual desires (e.g., ‘gays’) seek boys (and sometimes girls) to corrupt into their image. Since a quarter of gays admit to molesting/raping children or teens, and about one of every 7 gay priests has been caught molesting/raping children or teens, it is quite possible that at least a third of men with homosexual interests have done the same.



Indeed, if Uganda is to learn anything from us, it is to be harsh with those who choose to act on homosexual desires. Uganda, especially its boys, will suffer otherwise.

Another School District Forced To Clarify Todd Starnes' Misinformation

Yesterday, Todd Starnes published a new column in which he asserted that students at a Colorado high school had been banned from celebrating America:

Students and parents at a Colorado high school are outraged after administrators turned down their request for a spirit week day honoring America because it might offend non-Americans.

“They said they didn’t want to offend anyone from other countries or immigrants,” a 16-year-old member of the student council told me. “They just really did not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable.”

The student council at Fort Collins High School had proposed having a day to celebrate the United States during next week’s Winter Spirit Week. The young people pitched “’Merica Monday” – and invited their classmates to dress in patriotic colors. Their proposal was promptly shot down by administrators.

As we noted last week, when it comes to anything written by Starnes, it is always wise to wait until the people being vilified in his column have had a chance to weigh in and explain their side of the story because it is usually quite different than the version presented by Starnes. 

And his latest column was no exception, as the school district became the focus on protests today and was forced to issue a statement asserting that Starnes' column "could not be further from the truth" and explaining that the suggested spirit day name was rejected because school officials felt the slag use of the word "'Merica" was disrespectful:

We regret that the recent decision regarding My Country Monday was viewed as not patriotic. This could not be further from the truth. The original intent of Spirit Week at Fort Collins High School was to unify the student body.

When students first proposed Merica Monday, building administrators felt that it was against this unifying theme and disrespectful to our country. Merica is a slang term that is often used in a negative, stereotypical way to describe life in the United States. This is what led administrators to discuss alternatives with students.

We were surprised that our community interpreted these actions as anti-American. Fort Collins High School is a proud public school in America and supports many activities to celebrate this great nation. Due to this outpouring of sentiment and misinterpretation of intentions, school administrators have decided to rename the first day of Spirit Week America Day as opposed to Merica Day.

We look forward to enjoying the creativity and energy of FCHS students as they celebrate their patriotism next week.

This is just one more example of Starnes' dedication to providing "the most accurate information possible":

Creationists Allege 'Darwin Day' Is Unconstitutional, Promotes Nazism

Creation Ministries International is furious that Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) introduced a “Darwin Day” resolution to honor Charles Darwin’s birthday.

The group claims that such a move is actually an “authoritarian” and unconstitutional violation of the First Amendment’s establishment clause and protection of the freedom of speech. Also, apparently it advances infanticide, violence and Nazism.

Why are the atheists asking the government to endorse something that is so blatantly wrong and obviously a bait and switch tactic? What’s at stake? There are only two views of how the universe, the world and you and I came to be. Either it was created or it evolved. This is a philosophical debate—ultimately, it’s not really about the science. The constitution calls for the state not to be involved in the establishment of any religion—yet a mandated religious view is being proposed.



This has led to much of the moral decay we see in society. So, let the debate really be about science and let’s see who is really teaching it badly. Such teachings have had disastrous consequences on individuals and our societies including promoting euthanasia—and the abortion of millions of innocent unborn children because of the faulty evolutionary belief that they are not yet fully human. Worse still, even President Obama has agreed with arguably the world’s most radical bioethicist/eugenicist, Peter Singer, that infanticide (killing children after they are born) should be legal. If one is old, handicapped or just unwanted—one is not safe anymore.

See the following for the consequences of evolutionary teaching on society:

How to build a bomb in the public school system—The Columbine high school killers link to evolution.

Inside the evolutionary mindset of a killer—the Finnish high school tragedy.

Darwinism and the Nazi race holocaust.

Darwin, eugenics and the death of the defenseless and how modern evolutionists are advocating some of the same.

How would you feel about possibly being forced to take a public holiday to celebrate Darwin and endorse evolution? It’s already happening in the UK! If we allow this to happen any criticism of evolution will not be tolerated. This brainwashing will increasingly create a moral vacuum in our culture. So much for the scientific method of critiquing any hypothesis! Such censorship is authoritarian, and similar regimes with this evolutionary atheism at its core are responsible for more deaths in the last century than in all of the recorded religious wars in history. This is an attack on free speech and our constitutional rights. There is already ample evidence that shows the discrimination against any scientist who does not hold to an evolutionary worldview. What is happening to our great democracies?

God Will Punish America For The Grammy Awards & 'Good Luck Charlie'

It seems that Religious Right activists are still fuming about both the Grammy Awards and the inclusion of a same-sex couple on an episode of the Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie.”

One commentator is promising divine retribution for the television events’ inclusion of gay couples, Beyoncé’s dancing and Katy Perry supposedly sacrificing herself to Satan.

The Christian Post’s Larry Tomczak, who last month claimed that Beyoncé is leading girls into sex trafficking, writes:

My longtime friend Dr. Michael Brown reminds us to be merciful and reject self-righteousness as we winsomely reach out to immoral people and those practicing homosexuality. But in loving all gays, we must resist the radical gay agenda. "It is the greatest threat to religious freedom in our generation!" he declares. Undergirding this should be a godly passion and holy hatred for what this agenda is doing to destroy biblical morality, marriage and family in our generation.

Yesterday someone contacted me, mentioning how timely it was that my last commentary on Michelle Obama and Beyoncé came before Queen Bey's opening performance at the 2014 Grammy awards. This woman, whom our first lady commends as a role model, sang "Drunk in Love" while writhing as a stripper and censors bleeped unprintables during her "sexcapade seranade."

Mind you, this presentation wasn't on late-night cable MTV with Miley Cyrus sensual shenanigans but on a mainstream CBS broadcast during family hours to tens of millions across America and abroad.

The show also featured former Christian Katy Perry flaunting her sex in a satanic witchcraft spectacle with fire, horned men and a sacrificial offering to ... ?

Then Macklemore belted out his gay anthem, "Same Love," as closet lesbian Queen Latifah officiated over a ceremony where same-sex marriages were celebrated.

This annual broadcast is said to represent the very best music has to offer to the world. It also reveals the gravity of the situation we face in our culture today.

That same day, the Disney Channel's kid show Good Luck Charlie introduced two lesbian moms for our children, and later, NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt, an open homosexual, announced his working with lesbian Ellen DeGeneres for a new lesbian-themed comedy called One Big Happy for network TV.

Let's face it: America is in deep trouble and in desperate need of spiritual awakening. Our nation, founded on Judeo-Christian principles, has flourished for three centuries but now is teetering on the precipice. Time is of the essence. We must feel what God feels regarding unfaithfulness to His dictates on sexuality and marriage while praying, proclaiming the gospel and presenting a biblical model for the world to see.

Klingenschmitt: 'Al Franken Wants To Require Pedophilia In All Public Schools'

Anti-gay activist and self-proclaimed exorcist Gordon Klingenschmitt, who last week endorsed Russia’s “homosexual propaganda” law, sent out an email to members of his Pray In Jesus Name Project today with yet another insane screed attacking the Student Non-Discrimination Act.

After falsely claiming that Russia is merely “banning pedophilia,” Klingenschmitt said the anti-bullying student Non-Discrimination Act, sponsored by Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), should be called the “‘No Child Left Unmolested’ amendment.” He charged that the bill is “child abuse” because it is “legislating pedophiles to recruit your kids.”

“Al Franken (D-MN) wants to require pedophilia in all public schools, in the form of mandatory pro-gay lectures to all public school children,” Klingenschmitt writes. “Russia bans child-recruiting, but Al Franken wants to require pro-gay child recruiting.”

Stop Sen. Al Franken from homosexualizing public school classrooms. Stop federal curricula to kids. Please select, sign, and WE WILL FAX your petition to all 535 members of Congress (saving you time!) to filibuster Franken's "No Child Left Unmolested" amendment to Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Free option here.

Russia never banned gays, just child-recruiting by pedophiles

Contrary to nearly all reports by the American lame-stream media, which falsely claim Russia has strict laws banning homosexuality, the opposite is true.

Russia has never passed a law banning homosexuality.

Russia did, however, pass a law by a 436 to 0 vote forbidding adults from recruiting children into sexual deviancy. Wouldn't you vote for that?

In America we call that banning pedophilia. But Senator Al Franken (D-MN) wants to require pedophilia in all public schools, in the form of mandatory pro-gay lectures to all public school children.

Russia bans child-recruiting, but Al Franken wants to require pro-gay child recruiting.



Do you want Al Franken legislating pedophiles to recruit your kids? Let's petition all 535 Congressmen and Senators to STOP Franken's child-abuse.

Nunnelee Claims Obama Banned Military Service Members From Donating To Churches

Religious Right activists are trying very hard to make the case — with very little evidence — that the Obama administration is cracking down on Christians in the U.S. military.

Over the past couple of years, Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-MS) has enthusiastically gotten in on the game in order to stir baseless fears of anti-Christian persecution under President Obama.

Speaking with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council on Washington Watch earlier this week, the congressman made the absurd accusation that the Obama administration is threatening service members who make donations to their churches.

After Perkins accused Obama of trying to “suppress” religious freedom in order to advance his “radical social policy,” Nunnelee said, “We have military people — ‘If you are supporting an evangelical Christian organization’ — I take that to be my church — ‘then you are subject to Uniform Code of Military Justice.’ Well that is frightening. If a soldier — a man or woman in the military—makes a contribution to their church and they’re going to be hauled in before the UCMJ, that is very serious.”

WND: Black History Month Should Be About The Knockout Game, Anti-White Segregation

WorldNetDaily columnist Mychal Massie thinks Black History Month should be sent “to the ash heaps of history,” but since it is still around, he has devised his own way to mark the month.

Massie suggests that Black History Month should focus on the media-hyped “knockout game” as proof that black people “are able to get away” with anything and blames groups such as the Congressional Black Caucus for segregation.

The one thing you won’t hear during Black History Month is what blacks are able to get away with today, which, if taken in context, shows the tolerance of America that they won’t be talking about in classrooms during Black History Month.

They won’t be talking about the fact that blacks aren’t shot on sight in areas where “Knockout” is taking place. For those unfamiliar, the Knockout game is what black thugs play where they suddenly and unexpectedly punch unsuspecting white persons in the face for sport.



I’m tired of the lies – charlatans posing as eruditionists and parroting myths and distortions about what slavery was or wasn’t. Jim Crow is over, and the only overt segregation taking place today is perpetrated by black groups such as the Congressional Black Caucus, the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panthers.

Slavery has become a crutch for blacks. It is the excuse used for retreating from modernity. Slavery happened; the United States had the good sense and decency to move beyond it. Now it’s time blacks got over it and moved forward.

It’s time to send Black History Month to the ash heaps of history. It’s time to teach all children factual history, not just a manufactured history used to force guilt on white students and victim status on black students. It’s time we teach students that blacks do not own the market on past suffering and injustice. It’s time we teach that every population group who arrived here had extremely difficult times at first, but, unlike the majority of blacks, they rose above it. And, specific to that point, we should teach that those blacks who are not rising above same are those who embrace bitterness, victimology and immiseration as a means of life.
 

Farah: God Hardening Obama's Heart Like The Pharaoh's

In a column today, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah takes issue with Bill O’Reilly for telling President Obama that his “heart is in the right place.” Farah writes that it is “entirely possible God is hardening the heart of Obama,” just as “God hardened the heart of Pharaoh to serve His purposes” in Exodus, in order to “deliver His people from bondage once again.”

He goes on to say that Obama isn’t a Christian but an evildoer who is trying to “make government our god the way the children of Israel made one of a golden calf.”

Do you agree with Bill O’Reilly that Barack Obama’s heart is in the right place?

How does Bill O’Reilly know?



Can Bill O’Reilly know it? What special training and insight might he have?

Everything about Obama’s actions suggests neither his heart nor his soul is in the right place.



In Egypt, God hardened the heart of Pharaoh to serve His purposes. God sought to deliver His people from bondage in Egypt. Is it entirely possible God is hardening the heart of Obama today to deliver His people from bondage once again?

The Hebrew people were not excited about leaving bondage in Egypt. As bad as conditions were, the unknown frightened them. Even after the Red Sea was parted, saving them from annihilation by the Egyptian army, many sought to return to Egypt from the safety of the wilderness.

In a similar way, I believe Obama’s role is to force Americans to make a decision about their future:

Will we continue down the road toward bondage or reverse course and seek liberty in the ways of God?

Will we accept government’s handouts and control over our lives or depend on God and the work of our own minds and hands?

Will we follow God or will we make government our god the way the children of Israel made one of a golden calf?

I will believe Barack Obama’s heart is in the right place when he vows that he is a follower of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and will take no actions and make no pronouncements that he cannot square with His Holy Word. I will believe Barack Obama’s heart is in the right place when he repents of all the evil he has wrought since assuming office five years ago. I will believe Barack Obama’s heart is in the right place when he turns from his wicked ways, scrupulously follows the law of the land and listens not only for the voice of God but for the voice of the people he is sworn to serve.

Tony Perkins Rails Against Disney For Including Same-Sex Couple On 'Good Luck Charlie'

Family Research Council head Tony Perkins is joining other anti-gay activists in blasting the Disney Channel show “Good Luck Charlie” for daring to include a same-sex couple in one episode. “Good Luck Charlie” came under fire from One Million Moms, a wing of the American Family Association, which warned members that Disney will “corrupt the children’s network with LGBT content.”

Perkins declared victory over Disney, insisting without any evidence that “One Million Moms is flooding the channel with complaints.”

The FRC leader even made the baseless claim that “research says” same-sex parenting is harmful to kids.

He adds: “So it’s a little ironic that the show's called, ‘Good luck, Charlie.’ Without a dad, he'll need it.”

Perkins seems to have been so blinded by outrage in watching the show that he missed the fact that it is Charlie’s friend, and not Charlie herself, who has same-sex parents. And that Charlie is a girl.

When liberals took over the Disney Channel, they were hoping for a happy ending for their agenda. What they're getting is anything but. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. If you're looking for conservative values at Disney, it really is a small world after all. Producers made that clear when they introduced the channel's first same-sex couple to kids. After a year of planning, Disney finally made good on its promise, using the show "Good Luck Charlie" to give Taylor two moms. A spokesman says the show "was developed under the [advice] of child development experts..." But if Disney thinks that'll fly with parents, they've spent too much time in Fantasyland. OneMillionMoms is flooding the channel with complaints. Like us, they know what the research says: which is that kids who are deprived of a mom or dad grow up with significantly more emotional and academic problems. So it's a little ironic that the show's called, "Good luck, Charlie." Without a dad, he'll need it.

A Case Study In Why Religious Right Myths Never Die

Just last week, we noted that the story of Brynn Williams, a six-year old public school student who was supposedly banned from delivering her Christmas presentation in class because of its Christian content, was totally false.

This particular case was ginned up by a California-based group called Advocates for Faith & Freedom which has now decided, even though the entire case is bogus, to continue trying to make an issue out of it:

Legal group Advocates for Faith and Freedom is defending two California students who were censored by school officials when they shared their Christian faith.

The families of Isaiah Martinez and Brynn Williams asked for legal assistance after teachers prevented them from sharing the true meaning of Christmas ...

Williams, a Temecula Valley first grader, brought a Star of Bethlehem from her family's Christmas tree as a show-and-tell assignment, OneNewsNow reported.

The little girl was told by the teacher to sit down before she could share her story.

The legal group has scheduled meetings with each school district and is demanding that the students be allowed to pass out items with the Christmas story and to finish a presentation about Jesus without interruption.

"The pendulum has swung so far in the wrong direction that often school officials, teachers feel entitled to be able to express hostility toward Christian students in the faith," says Robert Tyler, general counsel at Advocates.

The Constitution does not permit that, says Tyler, and instead requires a "neutrality toward all religions."

Advocates is also demanding that each school district adopt a model policy that will protect the religious liberties of all students. The model policy would then be utilized nationwide.

The fundamental issue upon which AFF based its case has been revealed to be utterly false, but the organization is pressing forward nonetheless ... and this is exactly why we always says that Religious Right myths never, ever die.

Paul Vallely Denies 'Absolutely False' Coup Statements That He Absolutely Made

Former Army general turned right-wing activist Paul Vallely is vehemently denying the fact that he said he would support the overthrow of President Obama. He recently posted this brief statement on the homepage of his website:

MG Vallely Statement – Talk of Coup Support FALSE!

“Statements on the web and elsewhere that attribute me as supporting a coup are absolutely false. From the day I took my oath as a young Army lieutenant to this very day I have supported and defended the Constitution of the United States.

A coup is counter to the guiding principles laid out there. Disagreement and dissension are not! It’s time for change in America and I support that change – but only in a lawful, Constitutional manner.” - MG Paul E. Vallely (US Army-Ret.)

Unfortunately for Vallely, we have the audio from a Tea Party event at which he said that while he opposes an anti-Obama revolution, he would “certainly head it if we had to.”

Vallely is also promoting Operation American Spring, a rally with the goal of forcing Obama out of office, and has proposed a citizen’s arrest of the president along with various unconstitutional ways of removing Obama from office, such as a national recall vote.

The ex-general even believes that the “traditional process” of government is insufficient to remove Obama from office and called for an Egyptian-style uprising:

We are still waiting for Vallely to dispute the comments that he clearly made, rather than just offer a vague statement about how direct quotes of him calling for extralegal and unconstitutional means to remove the president from office are somehow “absolutely false.”

Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Bryan Fischer

One of the amazing things about monitoring the Religious Right on a daily basis is realizing the frequency with which right-wing figures engage in abject hypocrisy, seemingly unaware of their own past behavior or public statements.

Take Bryan Fischer's radio program today, for instance, when he and a caller named Bobby had a somewhat contentious exchange stemming from a recent comment made by Paul Reville, the former secretary of education for Massachusetts, was said that "the children belong to all of us."

The debate between Fischer and Bobby was not particularly interesting, but what was interesting is that when Fischer returned from the break, he admitted that he might have been a little too hard on Bobby. Fischer didn't necessarily think he had been unfair and defending his behavior during the previous segment by insisting that the caller had needed some "tough love" because he was refusing to answer Fischer's simple questions.

"He was trying to avoid answer the question," Fischer said, in his own defense. "And that's why I wasn't going to let him skate on the question ... You needed a little tough love there buddy, because you were trying to skate on what was a simple and straightforward and honest question and it was my responsibility to kind of hold you to account for facing the truth":

Now let us contrast Fischer's "tough love" approach to callers on his own show to his behavior when he appeared on Alan Colmes' radio program a few years ago where he literally refused to answer any of Colmes' question, simply repeating the same talking point over and over and over again because he did not like the line of questioning. 

To top it off, Fischer then complained that Colmes' interview was nothing but "gotcha journalism," complaining that "there was an answer that he was going to pester me until I gave it and then he could grab it and say 'gotcha,'" which is why Fischer insisted on simply parroting his talking points over and over again:

Today, Fischer literally did this very thing to a caller on his show and defended his actions on the grounds that the caller needed some tough love because he was refusing to answer the questions. But when the roles were reversed, Fischer was outraged because it was nothing more than "gotcha journalism" when it happened to him.

Peter LaBarbera Outraged That Disney Is 'Nonchalant About Exposing' Kids To 'Homosexual Parenting'

Looks like the American Family Association’s One Million Moms isn’t the only group upset about the Disney show “Good Luck Charlie” featuring a lesbian couple.

Naturally, Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality is also urging his followers to contact Disney to tell the company that that “homosexuality is aberrant and wrong behavior.”

“[Y]ou don’t want to model sinful relationships as normative to your kids–YOUR morality and faith, and your child’s innocence, are being undermined by Disney,” LaBarbera warns.

LaBarbera is especially disturbed by the fact that the parents in “Good Luck Charlie” do not seem disturbed or outraged that their daughter’s friend has two moms.

“Note how the main mother character, Amy (Leigh Allyn Baker) is nonchalant about exposing her daughter (Charlie) to homosexual parenting. (Amy goes on to call the lesbians a ‘great couple’),” LaBarbera comments. “Also note how she apparently never discussed the “lesbian moms” visit with her husband Bob (Eric Allen Kramer–of course, the dumber one). Get the message? A visit by homosexual parents is so inconsequential it doesn’t even merit a family discussion!”

Knight: America Becoming 'World's Great Satan' & 'Nuclear Waste Dump' Thanks To Gay Rights

Conservative columnist Robert Knight of the American Civil Rights Union is offended that “our Muslim enemies falsely describe” America as the “world’s Great Satan,” but he agrees that we are certainly on our way to becoming just that. “We might consider asking our ruling elites in Hollywood, New York and Washington to give the mullahs less evidence for that claim,” he writes in the Washington Times.

The ACRU senior fellow alleges that America’s “ever-coarsening, ‘progressive’ popular culture and the ruling elites” are using gay rights and immigrant rights to turn the country into a “nuclear waste dump.”

The trouble with liberals is not just that they eventually run out of other people’s money, as Margaret Thatcher observed. It’s that they find new ways every day to project their own dysfunctional worldview on the rest of us.

It’s like living next door to a nuclear-waste dump run by the Bumpusses. You’d like to ignore it, but shards of spent fuel keep falling into your yard and setting your dog on fire. This is how non-progressive Americans increasingly view our ever-coarsening, “progressive” popular culture and the ruling elites who promote it.

They’re aghast at not only the moral meltdown, but the rise of dictatorial executive power in Washington, as explained to us by the president in his State of the Union address, in which he reduced Congress to a helpmate at best.



The worst sin of all in the age of iron-fisted, liberal “tolerance” is to react to moral degradation by failing to facilitate it. If you get caught in a nonfestive mood, like the Christian bakery owners and wedding photographers who think the First Amendment protects their right not to be forced to celebrate sin, you are in legal jeopardy.

Coming to your state, unless you live in Jerry Brown’s California or Chris Christie’s New Jersey, which already have this abomination, is a law that says right is wrong and that wrong is mandatory.

California’s statute, which the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld last week, denies the right of parents to take children to licensed therapists to deal with unwanted same-sex desires.

Parents are allowed only to enlist therapists who counsel children to be “gay.” This is America, land of the free?



In such a culture, it’s easy for the president and his media allies to stoke the fires of envy and spread more dependency. It works even better when the people are stoned.

Having softened us up with cultural rot, the left is driving for total political control, with little effective opposition.

Failing to hold the administration accountable for a multitude of scandals, the Republican leadership is now trying to figure out how to raise the national debt and to turn 11 million undocumented Democrats into voters.



Vladimir Putin may be exploiting our moral decline for his own purposes, but to many weary Americans, his remarks ring true.

We are not yet the world’s Great Satan, as our militant Muslim enemies falsely describe us, but we might consider asking our ruling elites in Hollywood, New York and Washington to give the mullahs less evidence for that claim.

Beck: Coke's Super Bowl Ad Was An 'In Your Face' Effort To 'Divide People'

Glenn Beck was pleasantly surprised by last night's Super Bowl because he didn't witness anything that upset or offended him except, of course, for the Coca-Cola commercial featuring a rendition of "America The Beautiful" sung in various languages.

That ad, Beck declared on his radio program today, was "an in your face" effort "to divide people."

The entire point of the ad was, according to Beck, to send the message that "if you don't like it, if you're offended by it, then you're a racist ... That's all this is, is to divide people":

Dave Agema Is Fighting Gay Rights To Save America From Destruction

In an appearance last month on a conservative talk radio show, embattled RNC Committeeman Dave Agema defended the anti-gay comments that caused prominent Republicans to call for his resignation.

Agema insisted that his anti-gay stance has nothing to do with animus towards gay people, he just believes that gay rights will doom America.

The former Michigan state legislator said on The Renegade River Show that gay rights weaken the family “and when you start destroying the family unit in a nation, the nation starts to crumble from within.”

“Look at the Greek empire, look at the Roman empire,” Agema continued. “Basically, I am trying to protect America.”

He also maintained that schools are “teaching the homosexual lifestyle, how to be a homosexual in some sort of class that they’re teaching that we’re paying for,” and argued that gay marriage had major repercussions in Denmark, Netherlands and Switzerland (a country that has not legalized gay marriage).
