LaBarbera: Anti-Gay Activists Have Been 'Sold Out' By Chick-Fil-A's Dan Cathy

Last week, Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he was not going to be weighing in publicly on the issue of marriage equality any longer, saying he had learned from his mistakes when his set off a controversy over the issue back in 2012.

Cathy's new position is not sitting well with Bryan Fischer or Peter LaBarbera, who accused him of selling out the entire anti-gay movement.

"For him now to say I'm going to pull back," fumed LaBarbera, "seems to be just a complete sell out."

LaBarbera went on to lament that gay activists are playing hardball while anti-gay Christians are playing tee-ball "and we're getting wiped out and every time a leader goes silent, you know, he's hurting the cause."

"Now I'm wondering," LaBarbera added, "did Dan Cathy do more harm than good in this whole thing?"

Gay Tea Party Activist Warns 'Pagan' Marriage Equality Will Destroy Civilization

Doug Mainwaring has emerged as a favorite Religious Right spokesman against marriage equality since he is not only a Tea Party leader but also openly gay.

Writing today in the right-wing American Thinker, Mainwaring alleges that statements by religious figures such as Pope Francis that appear supportive of gay rights “have poisoned faith” with “regressive, pagan ideologies.”

According to Mainwaring, marriage equality is a plot by “statists” who want to make sure that the “institution of marriage is obliterated from human civilization, in which case, we will no longer actually have a civilization.”

He adds that the main reason people increasingly favor marriage equality is because “a vast swath of the population just sick and tired of hearing about gays in the news day after day for the last few years” and “sick and tired of irrational accusations of bigotry and homophobia.”

In January Pope Francis recounted how a little girl in Buenos Aires told her teacher that she was sad because "my mother's girlfriend doesn't like me." In response, he said:

"The situation in which we live now provides us with new challenges which sometimes are difficult for us to understand," the Pope told leaders of religious orders, adding that the church "must be careful not to administer a vaccine against faith to them."

Yet how much more have these surprise validators, operating within the Church's warm embrace, vaccinated others against faith? Perhaps "vaccine" is too mild a term. Whether with good intentions or selfish ones, they have administered venom. They haven't vaccinated against faith: They have poisoned faith with their toxic regressive, pagan ideologies.



The most recent Pew Poll found that public acceptance of same sex marriage is now up to 54%. Does this really reflect an enthusiastic embrace of the notion of same sex marriage? -- Or -- Is a vast swath of the population just sick and tired of hearing about gays in the news day after day for the last few years?

Maybe they're also sick and tired of irrational accusations of bigotry and homophobia every time they try to enter into a reasoned discussion about same sex marriage. Many who have been shut down for trying to engage in intellectually honest conversation, have concluded, "Why bother? Just let them have what they want. Maybe then they'll fade away."

Fade away? Don't count on it. There is never an end to progressive ideology. Statists never have enough power and control. This will never end until the very institution of marriage is obliterated from human civilization, in which case, we will no longer actually have a civilization.

I'm gay and I oppose same sex marriage because it is not marriage. It is something else. I, too, am tired of being labeled a "self loathing [sic] gay" and a "hater." I am not. But I refuse to be silenced by those who seek to manipulate and silence rather than enter into rational discussion.



If you love humanity, and harbor no bigotry, but object to the demand to call two men or two women, married: "It is up to you, fearless reader, to act."

Michael Peroutka: 'The Promotion Of Evolution Is An Act Of Disloyalty To America'

Once in a while, in the course of other research, we’ll stumble across something that is a little bit old but is still too good not to post. So it is with this 2011 lecture by Michael Peroutka, founder of the Institute on the Constitution, in which he argues that not only is the theory of evolution “anti-American” but that “the promotion of evolution is an act of disloyalty to America.”

Peroutka’s logic seems to depend on the Declaration of Independence’s statement that “all men are created equal,” which he generously “paraphrases” as, “There exists a creator God. He is the God of the Bible. He is not Allah, nor any of the Hindu deities, nor is he the God that is in the wind or in the trees or some other impersonal force. He created us. We did not evolve from apes or slimy, swampy things.”

“What I am saying is that the promotion of evolution is an act of disloyalty to America,” he explains. “What I’m saying is that there is no way you could promote or believe in evolution and sing ‘God Bless America’ during the 7th inning stretch.”

“All men are created equal, they are not evolved equal, get it?” he adds. “So evolution is anti-American.”

The lecture is part of a series that you can pay money to subscribe to throughout the year. We should also mention that Peroutka is currently running for local office in Anne Arundel County, Maryland.
 

Ex-Gay Therapist Threatens Lawsuit After Exposé On His 'Crayon Drawing Brain Therapy'

Remember Jerry Mungadze, the brain “expert” who appeared on Religious Right broadcasts and promised to turn gay people straight by using his coloring book therapy, in which he has clients color in a picture of a brain with crayons in order to identify a homosexual or demonic presence?

Well, Mungadze was featured this week on a British show called Undercover Doctor: Cure Me I’m Gay, in which he not only said that the thyroid and adrenal glands are found in the brain but also admitted that he is actually colorblind.

Gawker posted video of the session, in which Mungadze — who only has degrees in biblical studies and counseling education — was featured along with other ex-gay therapists.

Mungadze told the Dallas Morning News today that he is considering a lawsuit against the show: “If I sue these people it will be to make sure they do responsible things, not because I want to prove something.”

“I am not a gay therapist. I see all kinds of people all day long. These people for whatever reason are attacking me… I’ve never made homosexuality an issue in therapy,” he said.

If Mungadze does not consider himself an ex-gay therapist, then why did he go on a Daystar program about homosexuality where he insisted that he has “healed” “several people” who said they were gay through his brain-crayon therapy?

Mungadze also told televangelist Benny Hinn that he can use the coloring book method to heal people of demonic possession.

Sally Kern Thinks People Who Disagree With Her That Homosexuality Is A 'Bigger Threat Than Terrorism' Are The Real Haters

In a radio show posted online on Monday, Oklahoma GOP state representative Sally Kern told In The Market host Janet Parshall that she stands by her repeated claims that homosexuality is “more dangerous” than terrorist attacks because gay rights will destroy America, a claim she outlines in her book The Stoning of Sally Kern.

Kern told Parshall that she was outraged that people wanted to make her seem like an “idiot” for simply stating that “the homosexual agenda is a bigger threat than terrorism.”

“I was using what I use as a teacher, you know when you’re teaching high school students you try to find something they can relate to, to share a concept with, so they can grasp that concept better,” Kern continued. “So everybody understands terrorism destroys people’s lives, it destroys property. All I meant was, all I was saying was the homosexual agenda is destroying people’s lives. More people have died from AIDS than have died from a terrorist attack here in America. It’s destroying the moral fiber of our nation, that’s all I meant.”

She lamented that gay rights advocates “try to ridicule you and make you feel like an idiot so that you’ll be intimidated and not speak out anymore.”

In fact, she said her detractors are actually “stoning” God himself: “It just broke my heart because so often what they were doing, they weren’t just stoning me, they were stoning and desecrating the God that I love.”

“There was just so much hate, they accuse me of being hateful, and I never once said anything hateful,” Kern said. “Such hate expressed against the Lord and against his word and then the way they, I mean, these people, I believe these people, I believe scripture teaches this, they’re deceived and to me the real hate is from those people who say ‘you’re born this way and you can’t change, deal with it.’”

Kobach Mocked 'Procrastinators' Disenfranchised By His Voter ID Law, Claimed 'Nobody's Rights Have Been Suspended'

Yesterday, Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach and Arizona attorney general Tom Horne scored a big victory in federal court when a Kansas district court judge ruled that federal voter registration forms in both states must require voters to show proof of citizenship.

The proof-of-citizenship requirement, which Kobach shepherded through his state’s legislature, has created a huge mess, leaving the registrations suspended of nearly 16,000 voters who hadn’t or couldn’t provide the necessary documents.

Throughout the process, Kobach has dismissed the concerns of voting rights advocates and the growing chorus of protest from elections officials, newspaper editorial boards and others in Kansas. When 12,000 voters had their registration thrown in limbo, Kobach said it wasn’t a “major problem” because it was “only a tiny percentage” of the total voting population. (By contrast, the supposed reason for the law was to prevent a handful of fraudulent votes cast over a dozen years). When it was announced that only 72 percent of registered voters were able to meet the new requirement, Kobach boasted that “that’s actually an extraordinarily high percentage” and blamed “procrastination” for the 28 percent without complete registrations.

In a speech that Kobach gave in January to the Kansas Sovereignty Coalition, a Tenth Amendment group, Kobach mocked the Kansans – then totalling 19,000 – whose voter registrations were in limbo as "the 28 percent procrastinators," claiming that “nobody’s been denied any rights.”

“Nobody’s rights have been suspended,” he claimed. “Those 19,000 people haven’t completed their registration yet. They can complete it tomorrow and vote tomorrow if they want to. Nobody’s been denied any rights, they just haven’t finished it yet.”

“Oh and by the way, 72 percent of the people who have registered to vote since January 1, 2013, have completed their application and have sent in proof of citizenship. So those are the 28 percent procrastinators.”

“We should not get alarmed at all by the number that the left continually throws around,” he said.

Tellingly, when Kobach first mentions “voting rights,” and audience member loudly corrects him: “privilege, privilege.”

Beck Praises Mat Staver As A 'True Force For Good' Who Is Raising Up An 'Army Of The Lord'

A few months ago, Glenn Beck took a very public stand against the anti-gay crackdown in Russia, declaring that no reasonable person would support what is happening there and boldly asserting that he didn't even know anybody who was anti-gay.

As we pointed out at the time, Beck actually knew several people who were anti-gay since he was personal friends with them and had them on his show quite regularly.

In the months since, Beck has turned his attention to the case involving Justina Pelletier, which has become something of a major Religious Right campaign; so much so that Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver has taken over as the Pelletier's attorney.

As such, Staver and others from Liberty Counsel have made multiple appearances on Beck's radio and television programs, despite the fact that Staver and his organization are among the most vehemently anti-gay activists operating today.

It is no small irony that Staver and his colleague Matt Barber have openly advocated for enacting Russia-style laws here in America, which was the very topic that made Beck declare just a few months ago that he would stand with GLAAD while proclaiming that anyone who supported such laws could not consider themselves to be a fan of his.

So naturally, when Staver appeared on Beck's radio program yesterday, Beck had nothing but praise for him, saying it was "truly an honor" to work with them and calling both Liberty Counsel and Liberty University, where Staver serves as vice-president, "a true force for good" that are serving "front and center when it comes to the Army of the Lord and being a shield for many, many people, including most of our children":

Peter LaBarbera Praises Uganda, Colonial Era Anti-Gay Laws

On The Janet Mefferd Show yesterday, Peter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality praised “countries like Uganda and Jamaica” for refusing to “follow the American path” and passing draconian anti-gay laws. He warned that the decriminalization of homosexuality opens a “Pandora’s box” and countries like Uganda “don’t want to learn this from America, we’ve become a very decadent nation and they want to preserve Judeo-Christian morals.”

LaBarbera also waxed nostalgic for the good ol’ days when homosexuality was a crime in the US — falsely claiming that gay people never went to jail — and also hailed anti-gay laws in the colonial era, when homosexuality was punishable by death.

Mefferd defended Uganda’s government from criticism by Secretary of State John Kerry, attacking him for trying to “strong-arm nations across the world on the LGBT issue.”

“These people are a joke,” she said.

A Caliphate From Sea To Shining Sea

End Times broadcaster Jan Markell believes that a new Muslim-American coalition that plans to encourage civic participation in the Muslim community and combat extremism is part of a plan to build a Caliphate “from sea to shining sea.”

She told the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow today that Muslim-American groups represent “forces of evil” that “can’t stand America,” warning that Muslim-Americans will “vote for radical leftists” in order to “take over” America.

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, says it shouldn't surprise anyone that most Americans don't trust those groups. "They've got a track record which shows, number one, they can't stand America," she says. "They say that they love America, but we all know that that's just blatantly false."

USCMO, however, identifies as one of its "challenges" an external "vociferous cabal of extremists [that] increasingly maligns Islam to turn America dangerously against itself" – and the need to counter "the falsifiers seeking to mislead and betray American society ...."

In contrast, Markell maintains some members of USCMO want to establish a Muslim caliphate "from sea to shining sea" – and will not rest until they achieve their goal.



According to a recent report by The Washington Times, the group plans to conduct a census that will create a database that will be used to help promote the rights and goals of its members in upcoming elections. The goal is to have that database completed in time for the 2016 presidential election. Markell admits she's concerned USCMO wants to enhance Islamic participation in U.S. elections.

"We know what side of the aisle they're going to vote for. They're going to vote for radical leftists," says Markell. "America's being taken over – and I say that very cautiously because it's too shocking for most Americans to comprehend that we are being taken over by, quite frankly, forces of evil that are just shocking.

BarbWire: 'Don't Negotiate With Queer Terrorists'

Matt Barber’s BarbWire website today published yet another unhinged reaction to the fallout over the Boston and New York St. Patrick’s Day parades’ banning of LGBT groups. Jeff Allen writes on the site that the parades “have become the latest pawn in the homosexual hijacking of this country.”

“As the militant homosexual activists aggressively sweep through our society in their hostage-taking enterprise, they trample on religious rights — and numerous other freedoms — leaving only debauchery in their wake,” he writes.

Allen laments that corporations and universities are eager to “ride the ‘gay’ bandwagon on its path to perdition” and that “public officials cower in fear and cave to their every terrorist-like tactic.”

“What the St. Patrick’s Day Parade organizers and every other religious group, cultural edifice or icon of morality need to do is implement a ‘we don’t negotiate with “queer” terrorists’ policy,” he concludes. “Or else all will be lost to the homosexual hijackers.”

When the celebration of a godly Catholic Saint becomes a flashpoint for the homosexual agenda, it’s just another sure sign that things have really spiraled out of control in America. How is it that the St. Patrick’s Day parades in Boston and New York have become the latest pawn in the homosexual hijacking of this country?

In the current cultural clash between morality and decadence, apparently nothing is considered sacred or beyond the tainting touch of the “gay lobby.”

As the militant homosexual activists aggressively sweep through our society in their hostage-taking enterprise, they trample on religious rights — and numerous other freedoms — leaving only debauchery in their wake. Through their shameless “gay” gangland style thuggery, they defile and hypersexualize everything that they come into contact with. And the “Big Beer” brouhaha is just their latest attempt to distort a holiday observance, which is supposed to be about commemorating a heroic, holy man, into more perversity on parade. The homosexual wrecking ball has “come out” in full vengeance mode with corporate sponsors, professional sports organizations, elected officials, mainstream media outlets, Hollywood celebrities, and universities all drooling and panting to be the first to ride the “gay” bandwagon on its path to perdition. 

And homosexuals claim that they want equal treatment under the law, but as soon as they are told that they will be treated like any other citizen who breaks public decency laws, they throw a hissy fit. Apparently, they don’t really want equal treatment; what they demand is special treatment. They think that they are entitled to some sort of “protected class,” above-the-law status that allows them to brazenly break the law with impunity, and sadly, in most places and in many ways, that’s exactly what were witnessing as public officials cower in fear and cave to their every terrorist-like tactic!

Therefore, the “coexist” meme is a falsehood of epic proportions; it’s really “Leftist code” for the legal authorization of the anti-Christian forces – of which the virulent homosexual hijackers have become the worst offenders – to run roughshod over anyone with whom they disagree. In their twisted idea of coexistence, Christians and conservatives must live under the heel of the homofascists.

What the St. Patrick’s Day Parade organizers and every other religious group, cultural edifice or icon of morality need to do is implement a “we don’t negotiate with ‘queer’ terrorists” policy. Or else all will be lost to the homosexual hijackers.
