Pat Robertson: Gays Can Become Straight If They 'Start Acting Like Men'

Pat Robertson, a big fan of ex-gay pseudo-therapy, fielded a question from a “700 Club” viewer today who asked if God could “take away this same-sex attraction” and “change a homosexual to straight.”

Confusing sexual orientation with gender identity, Robertson said that his network once profiled the transformation of an “absolutely gorgeous” woman who “was a man” until “the Lord touched him, changed him and now he is marrying and has some children and has a very happy life.”

“It is a miracle but God can do it,” he said. “It is a tendency in your life.”

Robertson continued: “Somebody was asking me for counseling the other day and said, ‘I’ve got this son and he was effeminate from the time he was young and now he says he’s gay.’ And I said to her, ‘Does he want to be a girl?’ And she said ‘no,’ and I said, ‘Well, if he doesn’t want to be a girl, basically he wants to be a man, and if he wants to be a man, there’s no reason that he can’t start acting like one.’ God can take care of this.”

Robertson lamented that it “used to be considered psychologically” that homosexuality “was an aberration” but now “they come against you” if you engage in ex-gay counseling.

“The question is, can God do it?” he added. “The answer is, He not only can, He will.”

The Critically Important DC Circuit Court

Despite progressive victories in 2012, the Right’s outsized influence on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit gives it the power to undermine progressive laws and thwart the agenda that Americans elected President Obama to pursue.

Fischer: The Media Ought To Be Asking Questions About John Kerry's Iranian-American Son-In-Law

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer raised questions about what sort of impact the fact that Secretary of State John Kerry's daughter is married to an Iranian-American man might have had on his ability to effectively negotiate a nuclear deal with Iran.

"Who knows what kind of impact that would have on John Kerry," Fischer said. "I think that's a legitimate question ... If you take an unpopular position on contemporary issue, it could cost you in terms of relationships with members of your own immediate and extended family. There may be a pretty severe price to pay and some people may say, 'Look, I don't want to take that chance, I don't want to take that position because I could have people in my own family turn on me, reject me and I don't want to take that risk.'"

If the media is going to cover the fact that Donald Trump's sons engage in big game hunting, Fischer said, then "they certainly ought to at least be raising questions about the fact that Kerry has an in-law who is Iranian."

John McTernan: Gay Pride Events Cause Earthquakes, Abortion Causes Hurricanes

On his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today, Gordon Klingenschmitt interviewed Bible prophecy "expert" John McTernan, who warned that with the legalization of gay marriage nationwide, we have "crossed that line now where there's not too much time left for America," before declaring that gay rights activists hate Christians "as much as the Nazis hated the Jews."

McTernan asserted that "there have been tremendous disasters hitting America at the very same time as America is turning from God," saying that earthquakes have stuck this nation in response to gay pride parades and that  hurricanes have hit America because of legal abortion, all of which are "God warning America to repent."

Unfortunately, nobody other than McTernan seems to understand this obvious connection and so "we're at the point now where we have crossed the line of no return" and God's judgment is imminent.

When Klingenschmitt asked if there was anything that Christians could do to turn things around, McTernan said that "we must understand that the people that are in power now, I call them them hard-left reprobates, they hate us."

"They hate us because they hate God and we represent God," he said. "They hate us as much as the Nazis hated the Jews and they're acting on it now. This is not live and let live, Chaplain, they want to destroy us."

Self-Proclaimed Prophet: God Using Donald Trump To 'Expose Darkness And Perversion'

Jeremiah Johnson, “a gifted teacher, book author, and prophetic minister,” writes this week in Charisma magazine’s “Prophetic Insight” blog that God is using Donald Trump to speak the truth to American public.

In a post first flagged by Warren Throckmorton, Johnson likened Trump to King Cyrus, who freed Jews from captivity in Babylon, saying that the GOP presidential candidate, like Cyrus, is a spokesman for God.

And Johnson knows this for a fact because God told him so: “I was in a time of prayer several weeks ago when God began to speak to me concerning the destiny of Donald Trump in America. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, ‘Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people…. I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before.’”

“Just as I raised up Cyrus to fulfill My purposes and plans, so have I raised up Trump to fulfill my purposes and plans prior to the 2016 election,” God added, reportedly.

In His great wisdom throughout the course of human history, God has chosen not only to fulfill His plans and purposes through men and women who have yielded to the sound of His voice, but He has also chosen to accomplish His will through men and women who have ignored and rebelled against Him. One such man was King Cyrus mentioned in Isaiah 45.

Isaiah prophesied of Cyrus and speaks as a mouthpiece of the Lord when he declared, "I have even called you by your name [Cyrus]; I have named you, though you have not known Me. I am the Lord and there is no other; there is no God besides Me.

I strengthen you, though you have not known Me, so that they may know from the rising of the sun and from the west that there is no one besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other" (Is. 45:4-6).

What a powerful and profound prophetic declaration to a man who did not know or serve the Lord! Could God not use the wicked and ungodly to bring about His plans and purposes thousands of years ago and can He not still do the same thing again, especially in the midst of the crisis that we find America in today?

I was in a time of prayer several weeks ago when God began to speak to me concerning the destiny of Donald Trump in America. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, "Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find in My people these days. Trump does not fear man nor will he allow deception and lies to go unnoticed. I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before, but you must understand that he is like a bull in a china closet. Many will want to throw him away because he will disturb their sense of peace and tranquility, but you must listen through the bantering to discover the truth that I will speak through him. I will use the wealth that I have given him to expose and launch investigations searching for the truth. Just as I raised up Cyrus to fulfill My purposes and plans, so have I raised up Trump to fulfill my purposes and plans prior to the 2016 election. You must listen to the trumpet very closely for he will sound the alarm and many will be blessed because of his compassion and mercy. Though many see the outward pride and arrogance, I have given him the tender heart of a father that wants to lend a helping hand to the poor and the needy, to the foreigner and the stranger."

Barton: God Will Not Bless America Economically If Gay Marriage And Abortion Are Legal

David Barton appeared on the "End of the Age" television program yesterday, where he declared that Christians must vote against any presidential candidate in 2016 who supports gay marriage or reproductive choice if America is to have any hope of achieving economic prosperity.

"We have to remember that righteousness exalts a nation, not economics," he said, "so do not vote your pocketbook. Forty-five percent of Christians vote economic issues over moral issues; that's not what God will bless. God will bless the moral issues, then your economics will follow that. So we have to come out of the closet and when we get out, we have to remember to think biblically when we vote."

When host Irvin Baxter of Endtimes Ministries asked if that meant that any presidential candidate who does not oppose gay marriage or legal abortion should automatically be dropped from consideration, Barton said that is exactly what it means.

"If you recognize same-sex marriage, that means you do not recognize an absolute moral law from God," Barton explained. "So if you're wrong on the same-sex marriage issue, you're wrong on God's moral law. If you're wrong on the life issue, you're wrong on inalienable rights. And those two are simple modern indicators of an overall philosophy that does comport with the founding documents or biblical principles."

Louie Gohmert: Tens Of Millions Of Americans May Die Due To Iran Nuclear Deal

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, said yesterday that the agreement between Iran and the P5+1 nations on nuclear development is “far worse than the deal that Neville Chamberlain made with Hitler” and will lead to God’s judgment on America.

In an interview with the Family Research Council's Washington Watch" program, Gohmert predicted that Iran will soon attain a nuclear capability, which, he explained with some circular logic, the country will then use “to blackmail the rest of the world into removing the sanctions and now they will be able to buy nukes and be able to use those to blackmail people to back off the sanctions.”

“There is going to have to be judgment come down on America,” the congressman said. “This is devastating for the United States if this thing goes through.”

This is not the first time that Gohmert has said that the nuclear agreement will invite God's judgment on the United States.

Gohmert also warned in great detail about a potential Iranian nuclear EMP attack against the U.S., claiming that Iranian ships will launch such a strike from the east coast or the Gulf of Mexico as a result of the “insane” agreement.

“It will fry virtually every computer chip in the country, all the electrical grids would go down,” he said. “Many cars wouldn’t work. It would prevent our ability to refine oil into gasoline. Walmarts, grocery stores that rely on computers, many of them would have to shut down. It would be an absolute disaster, there are estimates that tens of millions of people would die if an EMP were set off and everything shut down.”
