Barton: GOP Presidential Candidates Must Vow To Nominate SCOTUS Justices Who Will Overturn Gay Marriage Decision

On today's "WallBuilders Live" radio broadcast, David Barton declared that Christians cannot vote for any candidate in the GOP primary that will not pledge to nominate Supreme Court justices who will overturn the court's recent gay marriage ruling.

"If you get a different administration, you can get some different Supreme Court justices," Barton said. "How many times in the last 30 years has the Supreme Court overturned itself? It did that on nativity scenes, it did that on Ten Commandments monuments, it has done that on homosexuality, it has done that on a number of issues where it reverses itself. So you get some different justices in there and they'll vote to bring a case back before them on this issue and you may see a complete change as a result."

After Barton and co-host Rick Green lamented how different things would have been had Robert Bork been confirmed to the Supreme Court instead of Anthony Kennedy, Barton declared that Republican candidates "are lining up now and you need to be asking the question of every one, where are they on the marriage issue and where are they on judges and if you don't get the right answer, then find a different candidate."

Scarborough: Gay Parents Will Drive Their Children 'Into An Early Grave Called Hell'

Last night, Vision America's Rick Scarborough spoke at St. Andrew Baptist Church in Panama City, Florida, as part of the church's weekly "Spiritual Revolution - Reclaiming America" series, where he declared that the Supreme Court's gay marriage decision will kill this nation and warned that children will now be adopted by gay parents and wind up in Hell.

"The reason Satan is trying to destroy this country right now is because we send more missionaries, do more good than any nation in history," Scarborough thundered. "But that's all at stake right now because by the act of five unelected judges mandated something upon this country that, for the first time could kill it!"

Gay marriage is far worse than abortion, he explained, because Christians can simply "opt out" and refuse to have abortions but "when homosexuals begin lining up to adopt those children, they will literally disciple them into an early grave called Hell."

Roy Moore Accepts Award From Radical Anti-Choice Group That Blamed 9/11 On Legal Abortion

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore has not been hiding his displeasure about the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down gay marriage bans, telling Alabama church audiences that the ruling will result in Christians being “persecuted” and has, at the behest of Satan, “destroyed the institution of God.”

Moore also brought his message on Saturday to a long-planned rally in Montgomery hosted by the radical anti-choice group Operation Save America, which descended on Alabama specifically to support the “poet, warrior, statesman” Moore’s fight against LGBT equality, abortion rights and the separation of church and state.

OSA, which was previously led by the Benham brothers’ father, Flip, is now under the direction of Rusty Lee Thomas, who memorably took to the streets of New York on the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks to announce that the terrorist attacks were divine retribution for legal abortion. According to the group, Moore’s chief of staff, Ben DuPre, is an important local contact, and DuPre introduced Moore at the Saturday event.

Moore told the audience that “America is under attack” as it moves away from God. "I'm sorry but this country was not founded on Muhammad. It was not founded on Buddha. It was not founded on secular humanism. It was founded on God,” he said.

AL.com reports that Moore addressed complaints about OSA’s radicalism, saying "You know, some told me 'you know they're a radical group.' I said yeah. They are radical for God.”

Thomas opened up the event by telling activists that in order to bring Heaven to Earth, they must end legal abortion and gay marriage, because there are “no babies being murdered in Heaven” and “in Heaven they’re not parading their sin like Sodom and trying to redefine marriage.”

Thomas then brought Moore up to the stage to accept a “Godly Statesman Award," after which he gathered the audience around the chief justice to pray that God would use him to “set an example for lesser magistrates throughout the United States of America that it’s time to say no to the federal beast!”

Jan Markell: Gay Marriage Turning US Into North Korea

American Family Radio's news director Fred Jackson filled in on "Focal Point" today for a vacationing Bryan Fischer, where he interviewed Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries about the recent Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage.

The ruling, Markell said, is evidence that Christians are now "exiles in our own country" and warned that Religious Right ministries could soon be stripped of their tax-exempt status and shut down by the government.

"We are truly exiles in our own country now," she stated. "The Bible foretold that the world would hate us for doing what is right and it also foretold that there would come a time when the generation would be called perilous ... and I think we're there."

"Righteous Christians are truly beyond grieved," she continued. "They can't believe that this has happened, not just in the lifetime, but within a relatively short period of time, within a five to seven year period of time, it just seems like not just the world has been turned over to evil, but it seems like the greatest nation that certainly in the last many hundreds of years has been turned over to a reprobate mind."

"We may be totally silenced," Markell warned. "Who knows? American Family Radio, Olive Tree Ministries, maybe we'll be shut down. It would not surprise me at all ... They talk like this in North Korea, in China but now we're talking like this in America and I can only consider that it's probably judgment on us because too much of America has gone astray spiritually."

Scott Walker Says His Presidential Bid Is 'God's Plan'

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who announced his presidential bid on Twitter this morning and will have a launch event later today in Waukesha, has sent an email to activists declaring that his presidential run “is God’s plan for me.”

“My relationship with God drives every major decision in my life,” starts the note, which is clearly designed to appeal to Religious Right voters who make up a major part of the GOP base vote, particularly in the early primary states Iowa and South Carolina.

The letter goes on to talk about Walker’s faith as “the guiding force of my life in both politics and in private” and promotes opposition to reproductive choice and marriage equality. “A lifelong supporter of the pro-life movement, my work defending the unborn goes back to my college days where I was a leader of Marquette Students for Life,” he writes, bragging about signing into law new restrictions on access to abortion and pledging to do the same as president. He calls the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision a “grave mistake” and calls for a constitutional amendment to overturn it. And he pledges to nominate Supreme Court justices who share his approach to the Constitution.

“Our country is at a crossroads and we need a proven conservative leader who is not afraid to fight for what is right -- even when it’s not politically expedient,” Walker says. “My decisions are guided by my relationship with God -- not by what might win me a few votes.”

Among those decisions are Walker’s moves to savage public education in his new budget.

The full letter follows:

 

Peter,

My relationship with God drives every major decision in my life. Each day I pray and then take time to read from the Bible and from a devotional named Jesus Calling.

As you can imagine, the months leading up to my announcement that I would run for President of the United States were filled with a lot of prayer and soul searching.

Here’s why: I needed to be certain that running was God’s calling -- not just man’s calling. I am certain: This is God’s plan for me and I am humbled to be a candidate for President of the United States.

Now, it is up to the voters to decide who will win the election. If you support my conservative campaign, please join my team right now with $10, $35, $50, $100, or even $250 today.

As the son of a Baptist preacher, my faith comes first. It is the guiding force of my life both in politics and in private. For example, I believe in the sanctity of life. I believe in the covenant of marriage. I believe in strong families. I believe in protecting religious liberties. And I believe these things are worth fighting for -- and I have.

A lifelong supporter of the pro-life movement, my work defending the unborn goes back to my college days where I was a leader of Marquette Students for Life. As a state lawmaker, I helped write and pass legislation banning the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion. As Governor of Wisconsin, I prohibited abortion from being covered by Wisconsin health plans in a health insurance exchange, signed an ultrasound bill into law, and defunded Planned Parenthood while maintaining health services for women throughout Wisconsin.

Earlier this year, I called for legislation to protect unborn children once they can feel pain at five months. The members of the State Legislature just passed the bill and I will sign it into law next week. Yet another pro-life victory here in Wisconsin!

If elected President, I would be honored to sign similar legislation at the federal level. I was raised to believe in the sanctity of life and I will always fight to protect it.

Please stand with me today to help elect a pro-life President.

Our conservative values were handed a big blow with the recent Supreme Court ruling. Let me be very clear: this decision was a grave mistake. Five unelected judges took it upon themselves to take that responsibility away from the states and redefine the institution of marriage.

In 2006, I voted to amend my state constitution to protect the institution of marriage because I believe that marriage is between one man and one woman.

I believe that the states have the right to define marriage.

To protect this right, I support an amendment to the United States Constitution to reaffirm the ability of the states to continue to define marriage.

Going forward, we need to focus our attention on protecting the religious rights of Americans. Our U.S. Constitution calls for freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. The founders of this exceptional country took religious freedom very seriously and we must redouble our efforts to protect these freedoms today.

Peter, I have been a tireless advocate for religious liberty. And my state’s families and children are better off because of our pro-life, pro-family agenda that promotes life, freedom, and opportunity.

As President, I will stand up for these same values. And I will appoint men and women to the Court who will faithfully uphold the Constitution -- without injecting their own political agendas into legal matters.

Our country is at a crossroads and we need a proven conservative leader who is not afraid to fight for what is right -- even when it’s not politically expedient. My decisions are guided by my relationship with God -- not by what might win me a few votes.

I am proud to have earned the early support of conservative and religious activists across the country and hope to earn your support today. Visit here to become a leader of our conservative team with a contribution of $10, $35, $50, $100, $250, or whatever amount is right for you.

Every day I pray that our best days of peace, prosperity, and freedom are ahead of us. As President, I will uphold the traditional values that have made our country great, but I need your help to win.

Your enthusiastic support will help us build much-needed momentum in these early weeks as we take our conservative message to voters across the country.

God bless you and God bless America,

Scott Walker

 

Ken Ham: 'Homosexual Behavior' A Sign That 'This Nation Is Under Judgment'

WorldNetDaily is preparing for its annual “9/11 Day of Prayer and Repentance,” an effort to win God’s hand of protection back to America after “the beginning of the removal of our nation’s blessings” in the 2001 terrorist attacks, something that WND reports is “more important than ever” in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision striking down gay marriage bans. In this effort, WND has the support of such Religious Right leaders as Chuck Norris and former Rep. Michele Bachmann.

WND also recorded a number of promotional videos with Religious Right leaders who were attending the National Religious Broadcasters convention earlier this year, including Ken Ham, the creationist behind Answers In Genesis and the Creation Museum, who agreed with the central premise of the event, which is that 9/11 was a warning sign from God that America continues to ignore, as proven by increasing support for things like gay rights.

“Personally, I believe from a perspective of reading Romans 1, that this nation is under judgment from God,” Ham explained. “The wrath of God revealed against those who rebel against him in Romans 1. And one of the signs of even God judging a nation and withdrawing the restraining influence of the Holy Spirit, one of the signs is the sign of homosexual behavior, as it says in Romans 1. And I believe we’re seeing that in this nation, I believe this nation is under judgment. “

Ham added that America must also repent because “this nation is throwing God out of the culture more and more, it’s throwing God out of the public schools, out of the culture, and murdering millions of children in their mothers wombs.”

Richard Land, the former top political official at the Southern Baptist Convention, pinned the blame for God’s judgment on Christians getting divorced, having abortions, and having sex out of wedlock.

“As long as we’ve got known sin in our lives, as long as there is virtually no statistical difference between the number of Christians who are getting divorced and the number of non-Christians who are getting divorced, the number of Christian women who are having abortions and the number of non-Christian women who are having abortions, the number of Christian young people who aren’t married who are having sex and the number of non-Christian young people who are having sex, God is not going to bless America,” Land told WND.

Huckabee: Christians Must Be 'Willing To Suffer' For Disobeying Gay Marriage Ruling

Anti-gay demon hunter and Colorado Republican state legislator Gordon Klingenschmitt was on hand at the Western Conservative Summit last month on the day that the Supreme Court struck down state bans on gay marriage and he had an opportunity to ask Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee about what Christians should expect as they carry out civil disobedience in response to the ruling.

Huckabee responded that, just like Martin Luther King, Jr., anti-gay Christians must refuse to obey the court's "unlawful" ruling and be willing to suffer as a result.

"A law that is unjust is no law at all," Huckabee said, noting that King was "willing to suffer for his decisions and I think that is what we have to accept is that we would be willing to follow our conscience."

Perkins: Christians Should Pull Their Kids Out Of Public Schools Because Of Gay Marriage Ruling

Colorado state legislator (and anti-gay demon-hunting exorcist) Gordon Klingenschmitt attended the Western Conservative Summit in Denver last month, where he interviewed Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council about the Supreme Court decision striking down state bans on gay marriage.

Perkins told Klingenschmitt that Christians should now pull their children out of public schools in the wake of the decision, before their children wind up being indoctrinated "into immoral sexuality."

"With this decision," Perkins said, "this will be used as a club to force conformance across the spectrum. I think we're now at a point where parents who are given the authority and responsibility by God to educate their children .... now, I think we're at a point where parents have to seriously consider removing their children from government schools that are going to be teaching and indoctrinating their children into immoral sexuality and this redefinition of marriage."

Staver: 'The President Of The United States Has Put The Cloak Of Sin Over The White House'

To say that the Supreme Court's recent decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide has sent Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver completely over the edge would be something of an understatement, as he has spent just about every radio program since it came down railing against its supposed illegitimacy while warning that God's judgment will soon befall this nation.

That trend continued today, as Staver again used the "Faith and Freedom" radio broadcast to declare that he was ashamed for this nation after seeing the White House lit up in rainbow colors following the decision and warning that America cannot escape God's judgment.

"No nation in history can rebel against God and assume that it will continue to exist," Staver said. "It just simply won't happen. You have, as individuals, consequences to your actions and nations have consequences to their corporate actions as well. What just happened with regards to this opinion of marriage by five lawyers at the Supreme Court, an illegitimate decision as it is, and even then the Obama administration participating and celebrating sin is an act of defiance against our Creator and it will bring judgment upon our nation. Make no mistake about it."

After co-host Matt Barber declared that lighting up the White House in rainbow colors is "a harbinger of God's judgment" brought about by the "arrogance and haughtiness in celebration of the sin of Sodom," Staver declared that upon seeing it, he became ashamed to be an American.

"It's unprecedented in American history that the president of the United States would be so in-your-face immoral and impose that immorality and sin on the rest of the country," Staver said. "I wept when I saw that and thought about what a horrible example that is to the rest of the world. I just felt shameful to be an American at that point in time, that this is my country and look what my country has come to. The president of the United States has put the cloak of sin over the White House, the cloak of shame over the White House."

South Carolina Pastor: 'Sodomites' Flying Rainbow Flag Must 'Flee The Wrath Of God'

Kevin Boling, a South Carolina pastor and host of the Greenville-based “Knowing The Truth” radio program, told his listeners after the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling that while the rainbow represents God’s covenant with mankind after punishing humanity with Noah’s Flood, “the rainbow has been adopted by the sodomites here upon the face of the earth as a symbol of the movement that is actually a movement that will bring about the wrath of God.”

Boling quoted a passage from Romans that lists various sins that are “worthy of death” before launching in to his warning to the “sodomites.”

“Listen, my friend, to drape yourself in the symbol of God’s wrath being spent when you’re actually using it as a symbol of liberation from God himself and from his Word and from his Commandments, you are heaping to yourself additional condemnation,” he warned. “For the believer, they see in this that there is now no condemnation for us in Christ, but for those who are impenitent, unwilling to come to Christ on his terms, who are celebrating their sin rather than celebrating their savior, for them they are heaping to themselves even more the judgment of God upon them.

“Flee the wrath that come, my friend. Flee the wrath that come by coming to the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Trent Franks: Constitution Is 'The Greatest Gospel Outreach The World Has Ever Known'

Televangelist and "Holy Laughter" preacher Rodney Howard-Browne is once again holding a week-long revival meeting in Washington, D.C., called "Celebrate America," featuring Religious Right activists and Republican members of Congress.

Rep. Trent Franks spoke last night through an interpreter to a largely Hispanic audience, begging them to elect more Christians to office because the purpose of the Constitution and the United States is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.

"If America is to be saved, she will be saved by those who have been saved," the Arizona Republican said. "I'm crying out to you the best way I know how as someone who is in the seat of power in the United States Congress, please send more people that hold Christ in their hearts to the Congress."

Franks went on to say that the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide "was lost years earlier when we elected presidents that would appoint people who had no respect for the United States Constitution."

"Today, there are four people on the United States Supreme Court that revere the Constitution," he said. "There are four the revile it and there's one that doesn't know his name half of the time."

The Constitution now hangs by a thread, Franks warned, and if it falls "the greatest Gospel outreach the world has ever known will be gone" and that is why the audience must "do everything that you possibly can to make sure that the leaders in Washington are leaders that honor God."

Tea Party Sheriff Calls For 'Pitchforks And Torches' In Response To Marriage Equality Ruling

Milwaukee County sheriff and Tea Party hero David Clarke has a new radio show on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze network, and naturally used the July 4th episode to explain how the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling was just the sort of thing that inspired the Declaration of Independence and so should inspire a new “revolution” complete with “pitchforks and torches.”

“If you call yourself an American, then you have to start a revolution in this country after what happened last week at the United States Supreme Court,” Clarke told his listeners. “If you believe in the concept of self-rule, representative democracy, limited government, then you have no choice at the very least to be part of a revolution that’s going to be necessary to get this country back.”

“Yes, pitchforks and torches,” he insisted, explaining that Washignton can’t be fixed so “you have to deconstruct it.”

Clarke went on to explain the various ways in which he believes that President Obama and the Supreme Court are embodying complaints found in the Declaration of Independent, including “imposing Taxes on us without our Consent” (“when John Roberts said that Obamacare was a tax, he imposed a tax on us without our consent”); “declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever” (the marriage equality ruling); “abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province” (Obama’s executive action on immigration); and “excit[ing] domestic insurrections amongst us” (the gay marriage decision, the “fictitious war on women” and “pitting blacks against whites, pitting the rich against the poor”).

“King Obama,” he said, ignored the 2014 election results, and now it’s time for revolution, which he explained should start by defending businesses that discriminate against gay people.

“The next time in your state the federal government tries to put a church or a bakery or a pizza place out of business because they want to live by their religious conviction,” he said, “when I talk about pitchforks and torches, you need to get down there, surround that business and dare the federal government to come in and close it. That’s the revolution I’m talking about, it has to start in the states.”

Barry Loudermilk: Marriage Equality 'Just an Opinion,' Similar To Dred Scott

Last week, Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., held a town hall meeting in Kennesaw, Georgia, to discuss constituent concerns and recent events in the nation, including the Charleston massacre and the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling.

Loudermilk refused to answer a question on whether he would take down the Confederate flag from state buildings in Georgia, instead choosing to focus on the shooting's significance for the Christian community. The congressman called the tragedy “an attack on the freedom of religion,” joining a long line of GOP pundits who have tied the shooting to the Religious Right’s claims of anti-Christian persecution rather than to its clear racist motives.

“Where did this massacre take place? In the church,” Loudermilk said, later adding, “It’s an attack on rights, they’re all attacks on rights.”  

The representative also touched on the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision, criticizing the justices for allegedly overstepping their constitutional boundaries. He joked that he used the word "decision" loosely, asking attendees, “Do you know what the actual term for what they did was? An opinion.”

“Hey, it was the Supreme Court’s opinion that Dred Scott and slavery was okay, did they get that right?” Loudermilk continued, echoing similar arguments made by anti-gay activists and politicians including Alan Keyes, Steve King, and Bryan Fischer.

“They get things wrong, sometimes their opinion is wrong,” Loudermilk said. After comparing marriage equality to slavery, Loudermilk left the crowd with an optimistic sentiment: “We can overcome these things.”

Staver: Accepting Gay Marriage Ruling Is Like Turning A Jew Over To The Nazis

In the weeks and months leading up to the recent Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver had been a leading voice urging other anti-gay Religious Right activists to vow to refuse to accept such a ruling and to prepare to disobey it through civil disobedience.

Since the ruling came down, just about every episode of his "Faith and Freedom" radio program has been dedicated to hammering home this message and insisting that the decision is illegitimate and cannot be obeyed, with Staver once again declaring today that accepting the ruling is like handing a Jew over to the Nazis.

"There is a decision that is now here," Staver warned. "It may knock on the door at different times or it may knock on the door of your friend, or your church, or your business, but it will come to your door and you're going to make a decision. It's like the Nazis coming to someone who is seeking out a Jew; you're hoping that they're not going to come but one day that knock on the door comes. And when it comes, here's the choice: Will I obey God and resist this evil opinion or will I ultimately continue in my complicit silence and just simply go along to get along?"

"If the government continues down this path," he said, "then America will not stand. It's just pure and simple. You can't just simply continue down this path of rebellion against God and assume that you're going to stand forever. You will not ... This is either the beginning of revival and renewal and perhaps revolution or its the end of this country and the end of Western Civilization. It's as pure and simple as that."

Staver went on to say that he has "wept for our country" over this decision because "it is a horrible, sinful act" and "a sinful, disgraceful rebellion against God."

Herb Titus: Christians Must Defy Gay Marriage Ruling Or Abandon Government To Heathens & Satan

Herb Titus, the Christian Reconstructionist, “biblical birther" and longtime brother-in-arms of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, is urging conservative Christian public officials to deny marriage licenses to gay couples in defiance of the Supreme Court’s recent ruling, rather than simply resign from their positions and abandon “civil society to the heathen and to the Enemy.”

Titus told Alaska GOP politician Joe Miller in a radio interview posted online over the weekend that thanks to a Supreme Court majority that embraces a “postmodern worldview,” Americans are adrift at sea.

“Instead of writing law, they write poetry, they write philosophy, they write sociology and psychology,” he said of the Supreme Court justices. “We no longer have any fixed principled by which to measure what is right and wrong, what is constitutional, what’s not constitutional. We’re basically at sea in a ship which is manned by nine people, and you don’t have much to say about anything anymore because they’re in control of the ship and the storm is out to sea and you can’t get off the ship.”

When Miller asked if there is now a “confrontation” between this postmodern worldview and people who believe in “immutable, natural law,” Titus agreed, saying, “It’s a very small minority of people who have any sense whatsoever of the law of Nature and of Nature’s God, that is the law as revealed by God in Nature and in the Holy Scriptures.”

He blasted public officials who are implementing marriage equality laws or resigning from their posts rather than follow the law, saying that those officials should instead say, “I’m going to stay in this job and I’m not going to issue marriage licenses and if you come after me, you can come after me. I’m going to take a stand.”

Christians, he lamented, have “abandoned civil society to the heathen and to the Enemy” and will soon be “thrown in jail” and otherwise “persecuted” because of it.

Later in the interview, Titus warned that if conservative Christians give up on trying to shape government to biblical specifications, they will end up like the Amish, with special protections for their religion but “no influence in the greater society”

“God didn’t call us to just be in a closed-off, religious community, God called us to exercise dominion,” he said.

He repeated that public officials who disagree with marriage equality should defy the law and “make people remove us from office, if that’s what it’s going to take you, ‘you can remove me, but I’m not going to just ask you to give me a special privilege, or resign and will no longer function in a civil capacity.’ What that does, I think, is basically sounds the bugle of retreat.”

Sheriff David Clarke: Might Take A 'Lexington-Concord Type Moment' To Stop Gay Rights, 'Socialist Agenda'

In an interview with WorldNetDaily last week, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, an emerging Tea Party hero who has been courted by Gov. Scott Walker, said that the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality might be a “catalyst” for a conservative movement to resist President Obama’s “socialist agenda,” but added that he wasn’t sure what could stop it “short of a Lexington-Concord type moment.”

The “Alinskyite” Obama, Clarke told WND, has “created all this division, stirring up racial animosity in our cities, rich against poor in the Occupy movement, and now it’s this religious divide” with gay marriage. “We had a Civil War. We see a great divide forming again,” he said.

He said that he hoped the marriage ruling would be a “catalyst” for conservatives to “defy this stuff,” lamenting, “[W]ho would have thought that in the 21 century homosexuality would come out of the closet and churches would be forced to go into the closet?”

“After a big decision like this, people scream and holler, ‘This is bad for the country,’ and then we just acquiesce,” Clarke said. “I believe one of these decisions might just be a catalyst to not just say we don’t like it but to actually do something, to defy this stuff.

“And that’s what churches are supposed to do is resist. And if the court comes back and says you don’t have a right to exercise your religion, then they’re going to have to decide what to do next. … But who would have thought that in the 21 century homosexuality would come out of the closet and churches would be forced to go into the closet?”

The Constitution is being “obliterated,” and “our democratic way of life is being transformed into a socialist agenda, and I don’t know what it’s going to take short of a Lexington-Concord type moment,” Clarke said.

“We had a Civil War. We see a great divide forming again. That’s a part of the landscape that has come from Obama; he’s an Alinskyite, and he knows you have to create a critical mass. So they’ve created all this division, stirring up racial animosity in our cities, rich against poor in the Occupy movement, and now it’s this religious divide. That’s why I keep telling people gay marriage is not the issue; you’re missing it. You have to peel back the layers and look at this transformation. It happens subtly right before your eyes, and you’ll miss it.”

Clarke said division in the conservative movement also aids the left.

“They will have to band together and decide what they’re going to do, but I think the first act is defiance,” he said. “Justices Alito, Scalia, Roberts, Thomas said this is unconstitutional. I’m going with that, and what these four justices said went against the language of these five oligarchs. Amend the Constitution if we don’t like it because we’ve done it, what, 27 times?”

Fischer: Christians 'Are The New Dred Scott' Thanks To SCOTUS Gay Marriage Ruling

On his radio program yesterday, Bryan Fischer followed up his warning from last week that Christians will now be banned from holding public office in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide to declare that, in fact, Christians will now be stripped of all of their rights because "we are the new Dred Scott."

"Ladies and gentlemen, I want to suggest to you and state this flatly, we as Christians, we are the new Dred Scott," Fischer declared, "and liberals are the new [Supreme Court Justice] Roger Taney. Because the view of liberals is that the Christian man has no rights that the liberal man is bound to respect."

"So, ladies and gentlemen, we are the new Dred Scott," he said. "Liberals are the new Roger Taney."

Kobach: Adoption By Gay Couples 'Certainly Not Good For The Kids'

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a rising star in the Republican Party who has helped to craft the party’s immigration and voting rights policies, said in a recent interview that his biggest concern about marriage equality is the prospect of gay couples adopting children, which he said is “certainly not good for the kids.”

Joe Miller, the failed Alaska GOP senate candidate and Kobach’s Yale Law School classmate, spoke with the Kansas official on his radio program in an interview posted online last week.

Kobach told Miller that the implications on religious liberty of the Supreme Court’s decision striking down gay marriage bans would be “not good.”

“Although the decision may not be used as a direct precedent for infringing upon the rights of us, of people of faith, to speak freely,” he said, “I think it’ll be used as kind of supporting law when the next thing comes down the pike, which will be probably an attack on the 501(c)3 status of churches that don’t affirm gay marriage, you might see some attacks on free speech by members of the cloth of any faith. I don’t know which is going to come first, but I think all of these things are now very real possibilities moving forward.”

“Of course, one thing that I really cared about in this whole gay marriage dispute over the last decade is adopted kids,” he added. “Now we have a situation where gay couples are adopting on the same terms and must be allowed to adopt on the same legal terms as heterosexual couples and, you know, that’s certainly not good for the kids. So, so many things are going to be following from this.”

Miller responded by citing a toilet paper ad in praise of single moms, saying, “It’s a world upside down, elites are trying to impose a different value system on this country, they’ve had a large degree of success and they certainly have a willing hand in the Supreme Court in their efforts.”

Santorum: SCOTUS Gay Marriage Ruling Proves 'Man On Dog' Warning Was Accurate

Back in 2003, not long before the Supreme Court struck down laws criminalizing sodomy in 13 states in the Lawrence v. Texas decision, then-Sen. Rick Santorum made his infamous statement that if the court struck down such laws, it would ultimately destroy marriage and the family because then "you have the right to anything," including pedophilia and "man on dog" relationships:

If the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything. Does that undermine the fabric of our society? I would argue yes, it does ... [I]t destroys the basic unit of our society because it condones behavior that's antithetical to strong healthy families. Whether it's polygamy, whether it's adultery, where it's sodomy, all of those things, are antithetical to a healthy, stable, traditional family ... In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That's not to pick on homosexuality. It's not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be.

On the day that the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide last month, Santorum was speaking at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado, where he held a press conference to provide his thoughts on the ruling. State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt was on hand for the Q&A and today posted footage of it on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program.

The very first question Santorum received linked the gay marriage decision back to his infamous "man on dog" comment, which prompted Santorum to declare that exactly what he had predicted has now come true.

"What I say is if you have the right to consensual sexual activity," he said, "then it opens the door to a variety of different things. And this ruling did it. This ruling followed up with what I said would happen if the Supreme Court ruled the way it did and the Supreme Court has followed their line of reasoning that I identified very early on that if consensual sexual activity is a constitutional right, then we have to, it leads logically, as you saw in the court's opinion, that all things, that all the rights come with that."

When he was asked if the Supreme Court's decision now opened the door to polygamy, Santorum said that he couldn't see any legal basis for banning it because the court "has certainly opened the door for a variety of other things that are going to happen."

BarbWire Columnist: Gay Marriage Ruling 'Far Worse' Than 9/11, Will Lead To Civil War

In a piece published on BarbWire today, Timothy Buchanan followed up his previous warning that a Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage would lead to civil war with a declaration that the ruling was "far worse than September 11" and can now only lead to God's judgment or all-out war.

"The rabid LGBT minions are coming after your treasure, your children and grandchildren, and even your very soul," Buchanan wrote, as he decried the "new seductive and sinister Tylenol commercial" that features gay couples.

Friday, June 26th 2015 was a disastrous day for America, far worse than September 11, 2001.

The Supreme Court’s lawless and un-Constitutional ruling to strike down same-sex marriage bans in the United States was a reckless and sinister act that will affect every American for years to come. America is broken, and now, one of three things will follow:

  • God’s judgment will fall upon the United States of America,
  • There will be a second US civil war, not North against South or East versus West,but of the righteous against  the unrighteous, the heartland versus the coasts.
  • Or there will be a Righteous Revolution, an Awakening of the Church.

Make no mistake, the decision to end state bans against same-sex marriage was not based upon Constitutional law. It was based upon nothing other than blind political ambition and a seething hatred for the laws of God. At least 82% of Americans oppose it. It is being enacted, not by democracy, but against the will of most of the people.

Equal rights was never an issue. The goal of the godless homofascists pushing same-sex marriage is to de-Christianize America. When they talk about wanting to make America a secular nation, they don’t just mean a godless one, they mean a sinister one. We’ve seen that when you remove God from any area of society, evil takes His place.

If you are tempted to think, “What’s the big deal? This doesn’t affect me.” It will and here’s how. The next steps will come fast and hard. Sodomites and lesbians will invade churches and Christian businesses and demand that religious objections to perverse same-sex marriage be crushed under the heavy boots of an unrighteous government that cares nothing for our faith. In fact, one EEOC Commissioner, Chai Feldblum has already said: “sexual liberty must trump religious liberty.”

The LGBT community will attempt to use the government to force pastors and priests and anyone else, to defile themselves by compelling them to submit to their depravity, and they will use lawsuits, coercion, and intimidation to accomplish this. It’s already happening.

Persecution is not coming to the Church in America. It’s here already.
