Rafael Cruz Delivers Christian Nation History Lesson To Far-Right Conference

Rafael Cruz, the father and frequent campaign surrogate of Sen. Ted Cruz, made a stop at this weekend’s The Awakening conference in Florida to deliver a David Barton-infused American history lesson to a room full of Religious Right activists.

Echoing a theme brought up by many of the conference’s speakers, Cruz told the audience that America was inviting God’s judgment and it was up to them as conservative Christians to become politically active and bring the country back.

“Let me tell you, judgment begins in the house of God,” he said. “But also, the restoration of America begins in the house of God.”

“Let me tell you what I am hearing from the Lord,” Cruz declared. “We are going to see in America a dual revival, a parallel revival. We are going to see a spiritual revival in tandem with a political revival, both together to restore America to the greatness that our forefathers gave it.”

He added his version of America’s founding — which he has laid out a number of times before — that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution “were written by revelation from God” and are therefore divine mandates to “elect righteous leaders.”

“If the righteous are not running for office, if the righteous are not even voting, what is left?” he asked. “The wicked electing the wicked. And we get what we deserve.”

Steve Deace: Arrest Trans Woman Using Gym Locker Room

Iowa talk radio host Steve Deace is furious about the decision of a Michigan Planet Fitness to revoke the membership of a woman who repeatedly complained about a transgender woman who hung her coat in the women’s locker room.

Deace, who frequently has Republican presidential hopefuls appear on his radio program, laments in a BarbWire column today that “we just got done fighting a fake war on women because one spoiled brat didn’t want to pay for her birth control pills, but now a woman who wants a women’s locker room to be free of creepy naked men gets tossed into the Rainbow Jihad’s leper colony.”

“So instead of getting the handcuffs put on him, the gender-confused individual was protected by the gym’s ‘no-judgement’ policy,” Deace writes, teasing that it “turns out cross dressers and trannies are now elevated to the status of Rosa Parks in our crazy new normal.”

Deace adds that people fighting rape and sexual assault should be worried that transgender people are allowed to enter Planet Fitness locker rooms since when he was a teenager he “could’ve been quite ‘sincere’ about my gender confusion if it meant an eyeful in the girls’ locker room.”

Turns out cross dressers and trannies are now elevated to the status of Rosa Parks in our crazy new normal. A Planet Fitness in Michigan gave us our latest example of how far down the rabbit hole goes, when a woman had her gym membership revoked because she complained about a man using the women’s locker room.

Of course, 15 minutes ago such a man would’ve been arrested on site. But “the right side of history” evolves fast, my friends. Best to put down those Bibles and constitutions weighing you down so you can keep up.

So instead of getting the handcuffs put on him, the gender-confused individual was protected by the gym’s “no-judgement” policy. The crucial part of that policy states that a “sincere, self-reported gender identity” will be respected in place of things like, say, sanity. It’s too bad this lunacy wasn’t in place when I was a teenage boy, because I could’ve been quite “sincere” about my gender confusion if it meant an eyeful in the girls’ locker room.

It’s becoming so hard to keep track of which sacred cow is the most super-duper sincere, and thus the trump card in our game of Russian identity roulette. We just got done fighting a fake war on women because one spoiled brat didn’t want to pay for her birth control pills, but now a woman who wants a women’s locker room to be free of creepy naked men gets tossed into the Rainbow Jihad’s leper colony.

Yvette Cormier, the gal who needs to find a new health club, must wonder what planet she’s living on. A rape is supposed to be happening around every corner on college campuses, and I’m told awful men keep taking 23 cents away from hard working girls, but a dude puts on some lipstick and stockings and voila!

James Robison: When Conservative Christians Take Control Of Government, 'Oh, The Demons Shudder!'

On his "Life Today" program this morning, James Robison interviewed Todd Starnes about his recent book "God Less America" and the two agreed that if conservative Christians in America could simply come together, they could save this nation by voting every member of Congress out of office and make "the demons shudder!"

"This is the thing you’ve got to understand as a Christian," Robison said. "In a democracy where the majority rules and where we're the ones who choose, then those we choose reflect the heart conscious and convictions of those who vote or who don't vote. Too many Christians have checked out. You've been told it's politically incorrect for church people to be involved. That's one of the biggest lies that ever came through the lips of Satan. Do not believe it! Of all people on this earth that ought to stand up and protect the precious and be light to illuminate the way out of this present and pressing darkness, we're the ones to do it."

"Hey, government, we can take control," he continued. "There are only 500 of you. We can get rid of the whole bunch in one smooth swoop and we can really reroute the whole ship! ... All hell is trembling — the gates of hell tremble. The very fact that people who love God and know God and love their neighbor, whatever stand up, speak up, and become a shining city set on a hill, oh, the demons shudder!"

Dinesh D'Souza: Left Hates Me Because 'I'm A Non-White, Immigrant, Patriot'

Last week, End Times broadcaster Rick Wiles said that President Obama is possessed by demons and is the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler, and decided to invite right-wing author Dinesh D’Souza onto his radio show to discuss “Barack Obama’s agenda to remake America.”

After the Trunews” host asked D’Souza’ why the so-called liberal media “hates” him, the conservative pundit claimed that the Left despises him “precisely because I am a non-white, immigrant, patriot that exposes a lot of the Obama administration running amok, all of this craziness that masquerades under the name of progressivism or progress. I’m blowing the whistle on these scoundrels, so naturally they’re unhappy with me, and I’m happy about that.”

D’Souza said that “old America” — the land of traditional, patriotic values — is “under siege” by “a government that is aggressively attacking the values of that America, trying, in Obama’s words, to remake America. I am here to try to stop that remaking, I kind of like the America that the founders designed.”

Right-Wing Pastor: 'Secular Humanist Caliphate' & 'Militant Homofascism' Taking Over America

This weekend’s Awakening conference, an annual event hosted by the Religious Right legal group Liberty Counsel and attended by any number of far-right activists and a few GOP presidential candidates, was dominated by the theme that the Christian Right is in a spiritual war against a satanic coalition of LGBT rights, Islam and progressivism.

Nobody summed it up quite as well as Ken Graves, a pastor from Bangor, Maine, who declared to the audience sitting in a megachurch in Orlando that they were in a fight against “militant homofascism” that “seeks to take over our land and make it Sodom” and secular humanists who, in conjunction with militant Islam, want to “destroy everything we have” and establish a “secular humanist caliphate.”

Evoking Seven Mountains dominionism, the doctrine that seeks to deliver control of the “seven mountains” of society to conservative Christians, Graves declared that it is the secular humanists who now “have every major institution.”

He then pulled a Bible out of his pocket and bellowed to the crowd: “Why should we be intimidated if what has been placed in our hands is the very word of God?”

Right Wing 'Army' Will Save Texas From 'Public Approval And Acceptance To Homosexual Activity'

Next Monday, March 23rd, Conservative Republicans of Texas, with the support of over 100 state officials, will host a Defense of Texas Marriage Amendment Rally outside the state capitol at which Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore will be the keynote speaker.

Last week, the organization's president, radical right-wing activist Steven Hotze, released a video calling for activists to "join our army to protect biblical marriage" and prevent Texas from having "to grant public approval and acceptance to homosexual activity."

"It's time for Christians and conservatives to draw a line in the sand and to rise up and take a stand for God's truth about marriage," Hotze said. "A fierce battle for the soul of Texas has begun. The liberals and their pro-homosexual allies want to force Texans to redefine marriage and to accept homosexual mirage [sic] as morally right. The idea that homosexuals could be married is a mirage. It is contrary to God's moral order. It's a counterfeit. It's a fake. It's a lie."

"The homosexuals and their supporters are using the liberal federal judges to redefine marriage against the will of the people of Texas," he continued, "which will force Texans to grant public approval and acceptance of homosexual activity. This will lead to homosexual behavior being taught to school children":

Pat Robertson: Treat Gay Son Like A Drug Addict

Pat Robertson told a “700 Club” viewer today that she should not “enable” her gay son’s “lifestyle,” just as she wouldn’t enable a drug addict.

When the viewer asked the televangelist about her son’s decision to come out of the closet, Robertson responded that she must continue to love him by treating him like someone who is an addict.

“You cannot go along and say, ‘I agree with your lifestyle,’” he said. “So don’t be an enabler, any more if he’s a drug addict, you don’t enable people to continue in their drug habits. But you let him know you love him.”

David Lane Wants Religious Right 'Army' To Pick Next President

The New York Times profiled David Lane today and his effort to bring Republican presidential candidates, conservative pastors and Religious Right activists together, hoping that his effort will culminate in 1,000 pastors running for elected office.

Lane has brought GOP hopefuls and activists, such as members of the Republican National Committee, on trips to Europe and Israel and convened “Pastors and Pews” events in early primary states, all which he hopes will spawn a stronger movement and move candidates to the right:

“An army,” he said. “That’s the goal.”

And Mr. Lane is positioning himself as a field marshal. A fast-talking and born-again veteran of conservative politics with experience in Washington, Texas and California, Mr. Lane, 60, travels the country trying to persuade evangelical clergy members to become politically active.

What Mr. Lane, a former public relations man, does have going for him is a decentralized landscape in which a determined believer with an extensive network of ground-level evangelical leaders and a limitless capacity for talking on the phone can exert influence on Republican presidential candidates eager to reach evangelical voters.

In an interview with the Times, Lane did chide one top Republican, Jeb Bush, for hiring an openly gay spokesman.

Of course, Lane doesn’t want to elect just any Republican candidate for president, but one who is loyal to the Religious Right when it comes to issues such as abortion rights, LGBT equality and judicial nominees. It appears that his criticism of Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith during the 2008 primary race hasn’t affected his relationship with Republican leaders.

In Lane’s vision for the U.S., the country must do away with the separation of church and state and stop tolerating gay people in order to avoid divine punishment.

As we’ve reported, Lane has:

  • Feared that God might destroy the U.S. just as he punished Nazi Germany: “If we get judgment like Nazi Germany, I’m assuming we go to rebel, and God says ‘I’m done.’”
  • Predicted that homosexuality will lead to the destruction of America: “Homosexual desire and marriage is unnatural and — more so — is a symptom of advanced cultural decay and precursor to the collapse of the Republican Party and the nation.... The mark of a decadent society is the exaltation and normalization of sin — which leads to the death.”
  • Compared Republicans who support marriage equality to politicians who backed slavery in the run-up to the Civil War.
  • Called the separation of church and state a “lie” and a “fabricated whopper” used to stop “Christian America – the moral majority – from imposing moral government on pagan public schools, pagan higher learning and pagan media.”
  • Said America needs a “thorough cleaning from pornography, abortion, homosexuality, filth from TV and Hollywood, racism, and injustice.”

Rick Santorum: 'Yes We Can' Put The Bible Back In Public Schools

In a speech Saturday to the far-right Awakening conference organized by Liberty Counsel, Rick Santorum told the audience of pastors and activists that it was up to them to save America by, in part, getting Bibles back in public schools.

“We are on a crossroads in American history, a crossroads that looks like we are heading down in a direction that, let’s be honest, no civilization has ever been able to recover from,” Santorum warned, adding that the nation needs to return to God.

“The left cannot be successful in a country of God-given rights,” he said. “It can’t. Because they want to be the purveyor of rights, and if God is the purveyor of rights, then they lose. We have an obligation to educate, to form, within our churches to preach, within our families to educate, and to fight within our schools. Why are Bibles no longer in public schools? Don’t give me the Supreme Court. The reason Bibles are no longer in the public schools is because we let them take them out of the public schools.”

He added a variation on President Obama’s campaign chant: “You say, ‘Well we can’t get them back in.’ Yes we can. Yes we can!”
