Pat Robertson: Healing Prayers Sometimes Don't Work Because People 'Enjoy Their Sickness'

On “The 700 Club” today, Pat Robertson fielded a question from a viewer who wondered why her husband hasn’t been healed from a medical condition despite intense prayer.

Robertson responded that the woman’s husband probably isn’t a faithful Christian and may actually want to be sick: “There are some people, you know, they enjoy their sickness. That is terrible to say but that is their excuse not to compete, ‘well I’d love to compete but my lumbago’s got me so I can’t do it.”

ADF: Planned Parenthood Using Sex-Ed To Hook Kids On Abortion, 'Akin To Tobacco Companies Providing Cigarettes To Kids'

Alliance Defending Freedom has been following closely a proposed sex education curriculum in Tempe, Arizona that has the support of, but was not developed by, Planned Parenthood. In a video report this week, ADF speculates that Planned Parenthood is taking a page from tobacco companies and using the curriculum to “develop future customers” for abortions.

“It was no surprise that the country’s largest abortion provider is promoting abortion to our children,” the ADF reporter says. “The question now is, is Planned Parenthood simply seeking to develop future customers and make a profit akin to tobacco companies providing cigarettes to kids?”

He also warns that the curriculum portrays “homosexuality as a positive alternative lifestyle.”

Michelle Duggar Joins Smear Campaign Against Fayetteville LGBT Nondiscrimination Ordinance

Michelle Duggar, star of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” is participating in a robocall campaign to stop a nondiscrimination ordinance in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

In the robocall, obtained by the Fayetteville Flyer, Duggar claims that the ordinance barring discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in areas of commerce, housing and employment would endanger “the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children” and enable “child predators.”

Duggar’s husband Jim Bob Duggar and son Josh are also fervent Religious Right activists.

HT: Brynn Tannehill.

Hello, this is Michelle Duggar. I’m calling to inform you of some shocking news that would affect the safety of Northwest Arkansas women and children. The Fayetteville City Council is voting on an ordinance this Tuesday night that would allow men – yes I said men – to use womens and girls restrooms, locker rooms, showers, sleeping areas and other areas that are designated for females only. I don’t believe the citizens of Fayetteville would want males with past child predator convictions that claim they are female to have a legal right to enter private areas that are reserved for women and girls.

I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space. We should never place the preference of an adult over the safety and innocence of a child. Parents, who do you want undressing next to your daughter at the public swimming pool’s private changing area? I still believe that we are a society that puts women and children first. Women, young ladies and little girls deserve to use the restroom or any other facility in peace and safety. Will you speak up for protecting women and children? Call 575-8330 and tell the Fayetteville City Council members and Mayor Jordan to vote ‘no’ on ordinance 119. The number again is 575-8330. For more information please go to www.freefayetteville.org.

Sandy Rios: Detained Ferguson Journalist A 'Punk' Who Was 'Causing Trouble'

On Friday, Sandy Rios of the American Family Association attacked journalists Wesley Lowery and Ryan Reilly, who were detained by police officers while working in a McDonalds in Ferguson, Missouri.

Speaking on her American Family Radio program, Rios called Lowery a “punk of a reporter” who was “causing trouble, trying to make the officer mad,” adding: “These are the men, these are the young men of our country, these are the guys who are going to defend the next generation, these are the future fathers of America’s children. That’s pretty scary, isn’t it?”

Right Wing Round-Up - 8/18/14

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 8/18/14

  • Glenn Beck had a busy weekend, meeting with the Archbishop of Los Angeles as well as Joel Osteen.
  • Religious Right leaders are apparently very worried that none of the possible GOP presidential contenders adequately represent their radical agenda, with the exception of Ben Carson.
  • If we are to believe OneNewsNow, the White House has directly ordered every government facility not to allow televisions to show Fox News: "It's a directive straight from the White House."
  • Larry Tomczak is not a fan of popular culture.
  • Finally, Matt Barber has responded to an article chronicling the radical nature of his BarbWire.com website by insisting that he has "not been affiliated with Liberty Counsel since 2012." That is odd, given that his LinkedIn profile lists him as "Vice President, Liberty Counsel Action," he regularly appears on/hosts Liberty Counsel's daily radio program ... and the Facebook description accompanying the very comment he left on the GLAAD website explicitly says he "works at Liberty Counsel / Liberty School of Law."

Todd Starnes: Obama Administration 'Orchestrated' Ferguson Incident, Made It 'A National Issue'

Only in the world of Fox News commentator Todd Starnes is President Obama responsible for making the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri into a national story.

In an interview with Sandy Rios on American Family Radio today, Starnes said Obama administration officials “are actually orchestrating a lot of this stuff and they turned this local tragedy into a national issue.”

“It appears that the administration is trying to play politics with this,” Starnes said.

Fischer: Gays Are Inherently Disqualified From Serving In Public Office

On Friday, Texas Governor Rick Perry was indicted by a grand jury over his efforts to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign from office following her arrest for drunk driving.

Lehmberg is gay and so, naturally, Bryan Fischer used this story to proclaim on his radio program today that all gay people ought to be banned from serving in public office.

"My view of public service," Fischer declared, "is that somebody who is engaged in sexually deviant behavior is not qualified to hold public office. That's why if you get a conviction for rape, you can't hold public office. You get a conviction for pedophilia, you can't hold public office. You might even get run out of office on a prostitution charge because it's sexually deviant behavior. Now lesbianism is sexually deviant behavior because it deviates from God's plan and design for human sexually. So I believe that this is a person who, because she's involved in sexually deviant behavior, should be, ought to be disqualified from public service":

Fischer: Michael Brown Attacked Police Officer Because He Was 'Hyped Up On Marijuana'

For the last few days, Bryan Fischer has been hard at work crafting the narrative that Michael Brown was a "menacing" giant who was justifiably shot and killed while assaulting Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson.

On his radio program today, Fischer sought to bolster this narrative by citing a few new bits of recently released information, such as the report that Brown was shot six times in his front and had marijuana in his system, claiming that this proves that Brown was "tanked up" on pot, which made him go berserk and attack the police officer.

"We know now he did have marijuana in his system," Fischer explained, "and we've had stories, remember, we've had stories from Colorado, people going berserk on marijuana and killing people, hyped up on marijuana. So it's more dangerous than people think":

Rick Wiles: Obama Using Gay Rights And ISIS To Destroy America

On Friday, “Trunews” host Rick Wiles said that President Obama is “waging jihad” on America through gay rights advocacy and the extremist group ISIS, which Wiles believes is a U.S. government proxy. During an interview with Walid Shoebat, an anti-Muslim commentator who is the favorite of many conservative groups and media outlets, Wiles claimed that “Barack Obama is more than a Muslim, he is a jihadist.”

“He is waging jihad from inside the White House, his foreign policy is 100 percent pro-Islam, he has waged jihad on this country, he has shredded the Constitution, he has defiled the U.S. military by forcing the military to accept homosexuality,” he said.

“Obama is destroying Christian America, that’s his assignment as a jihadist, it is to destroy Christian America.”

After Wiles said that CIA director John Brennan is also “an Islamist,” Shoebat claimed that the U.S. government is feeling the effects of an Islamist “infiltration.” Shoebat added that God is punishing America with Obama’s presidency: “America has abandoned its Judeo-Christian ethics and so God has given them to their own desires and that’s why we have Obama. When Americans wake up and God removes Obama and we have a different president, maybe God will have mercy on us.”

Wiles also alleged that “ISIS and the U.S. government are the same, you cannot separate the two. The U.S. government created ISIS just like it created Al Qaeda, but Al Qaeda wasn’t bloody enough for them so they had to create a worse monster to get the job done.”

After Wiles asked if there is “a super-secret, dark, sinister force above all of this stuff that is guiding this process to set the Middle East on fire,” Shoebat said Obama’s supposedly pro-Islamist worldview is motivated by Satan.

“This is a demonic influence and the more America becomes liberal, the more that kind of influence prevails in America,” he said, warning that liberals will dispose of the First Amendment in order to ban criticism of Islam and “the homosexual agenda.”
