'21st Century Creationism' Same As The Old Creationism

‘Creation In The 21st Century,’ a TV show that premiers tomorrow on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, hopes to put an edgy, modern spin on Creationist doctrine.

The host, David Rives of WorldNetDaily, claims that unlike Creationists, “Darwinian evolutionists believe, by faith, in the unproven theories of man, therefore their conclusions are also based on a belief rather that fact.”

“The Biblical account of creation as found in the first chapter of the Bible, the foundation upon which the whole Biblical record is based, is being gradually eroded away by unproven theories of evolution – not by empirical science, but by highly interpretive theories, presented by those who reject the God of the Bible,” explains David Rives Ministries. “The question arises: Does empirical science, observable and repeatedly demonstrable findings, prove the theories of Darwinian evolution to be true and the Biblical account to be false? The answer is emphatically no.

“The unproven theories of evolution that are being presented rely heavily on the interpretation of data – ‘ideology’ or ‘worldview,’” Rives explains. “Those who believe the Bible to be true see sedimentary layers of geological formations to be an indication of a worldwide flood in Noah’s day. Those who believe in the theories of evolution view the same geological layers as confirmation of millions of years of gradual deposition. The bottom line is that no one was there to witness the events responsible for producing what we see.

“Those who trust in the Biblical record believe, by faith, that ‘Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith’ (Hebrews 11:7),” Rives continues. “Darwinian evolutionists believe, by faith, in the unproven theories of man, therefore their conclusions are also based on a belief rather that fact. Darwinian evolution is a faith-based religion in opposition to the words of Scripture, which for thousands of years has been received by Bible believers as the inspired word of the Creator Himself.

“I believe that when we take a look at all the facts, it takes more faith to believe in evolution by random chance than it does to believe in the literal Genesis account,” Rives concludes.

AFA Affiliate Defends Russian 'Gay Propaganda' Law

The Illinois Family Institute, a state affiliate of the American Family Association, sent an email to its members today featuring an essay by IFI’s “cultural analyst” Laurie Higgins defending Russia’s draconian “gay propaganda” law.

Higgins calls the law – which is essentially a gag rule on gay rights advocacy – “reasonable and wise” and claims that gay rights advocates oppose it because  “nothing angers homosexual activists quite like being denied access to the hearts and minds of other people’s minor children.”

She goes on to claim that anti-gay conservatives in the U.S. face far more “draconian and insidious” penalties than gay rights advocates in Russia.

Higgins joins AFA’s Bryan Fischer, who not only praised the Russian law but said it didn’t go far enough.

To further put things in perspective, note that the consequences of violating this law are only fines of $120-150 for individuals, $1,200-1,500 for “officials,” and $12,000-15,000 for “legal entities.” Hardly sounds unreasonable to fine adults $150 for trying to inculcate other people’s children with their subjective beliefs about sexual morality, but nothing angers homosexual activists quite like being denied access to the hearts and minds of other people’s minor children.

Don’t be deceived, the outrage of homosexuality-affirming activists has nothing to do with concern for critical thinking, free speech, or intellectual diversity. Proof for that claim comes from a perusal of resources presented to American teens in their government schools on the topic of homosexuality. The suppression of conservative ideas on issues related to homosexuality is virtually absolute, and the consequences for violating the de facto bans on conservative resources are far more draconian and insidious than those imposed by the Russian law. Paying a $150 fine is small potatoes compared to the kind of personal and professional repercussions that would redound to any teacher in a public school who dared to present resources to minors that articulated conservative beliefs about homosexuality.

To assault people because of their beliefs or feelings is beyond the pale, as is making inflammatory statements that express a desire that others die, experience eternal damnation, or f**k themselves (things that are hurled at any public figure who dares to express moral propositions about homosexuality with which “progressives” disagree). Prohibiting the distribution of homosexuality-affirming resources to minors is both reasonable and wise.

Paul Vallely's Plan To Oust Obama & Bring America Together

WorldNetDaily today ran a glowing profile of former general and Fox News pundit Paul Vallely, who is calling for the overthrow of the Obama administration and a citizen’s arrest of the president. Vallely told WND that he simply wants to end partisan scuffles in Washington…by holding a “national vote of no confidence” against Obama.

Vallely quotes “a prominent Washington, D.C., insider with whom Stand Up America is coordinating –and who prefers to remain under the radar for the moment while conferring with potential House co-sponsors on both the basic rationale and the detailed content of such a House Resolution of no confidence” as offering the following justification for this novel course of action:

“First, in most of the world’s so-called ‘democracies’ – actually, multi-party constitutional republics – a formal vote of ‘no confidence’ by the Lower House suspends or greatly limits the governing authority of the party in power and, in a ‘recall’ of sorts, mandates new elections within 30-60 days,” the insider reportedly reasons. “Although we have no such instrument in our Constitution or in existing law, there is nothing to prevent its use as a comprehensive de facto indictment and conviction for contempt of Congress, violations of oath of office and of the Constitution itself – for all of the reasons stated in such a resolution.

“Second,” he reasons, “it would be much easier to cosponsor [than impeachment articles], to be formally adopted by the House and to achieve what might be called Obama’s ‘conviction without eviction’ – in which wholesale repudiation by the House, loss of control of the Senate and a substantial diminution of power and influence during his remaining time in office would be the penalties.

“We know there is no legal standing in a vote of ‘no confidence’ that would come of this act, but at least one thing will certainly occur: We take back the power of discourse,” the insider contends. “What do we do? We conduct a national ‘vote of no confidence.’”



Vellely contends the vote also would defuse some of the partisan finger-pointing that infects not only D.C. but the entire country.



“The House of Representatives must follow our lead and take up a resolution of no confidence,” the general contends.

Vallely’s calls to action have been immensely popular among tea party organizations that are seeking a way to restore the rule of law to Washington.

Swanson & Buehner Wonder Why The Rose Bowl Parade Didn't Include A Float With A Gay Person Being Stoned To Death

Pastors Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner of Generations Radio were upset about a float at the Rose Bowl parade that included a married gay couple which, despite nasty attacks from anti-gay activists, went off without incident (and even won an award). Buehner was perplexed by the fact that the AIDS Healthcare Foundation sponsored the float, saying that its “pro-homosexual propaganda” would “spread AIDS.”

He added: “I wonder what the Rose Bowl parade would do if we had the stoning of a homosexual along the parade just as an expression of free speech and all that.”

Swanson: They’ll also witness a controversial same-sex wedding, courtesy of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation. According to the Pasadena Star News, a pair of homosexual hairstylists will ‘marry’ along the parade route while riding a wedding cake-shaped float sponsored by the AIDS group.

Buehner: This is an AIDS group? This is a group that’s against AIDS? They’re not trying to spread AIDS right? I mean, if you are trying to spread AIDS you would have pro-homosexual propaganda but if you’re trying to stop it….

Swanson: They may be serving lemonade too as part of the event, I hope not but maybe.

Buehner: I wonder what the Rose Bowl parade would do if we had the stoning of a homosexual along the parade just as an expression of free speech and all that.

Swanson: I think that would be rejected by the Rose Bowl parade committee.

Buehner: Well what if the stones were just made like of flowers and flower pedals?

Swanson: I don’t know if they’d allow that or not. Anyway ladies and gentlemen, this is another instance in which the degradation of our society is going mainstream.

Later in the broadcast, Swanson said that the gay community is “coming after Christians” and will have them “burned at the stake.” He described the fight as a “battle between good and evil,” warning “Christians will be destroyed by the other side” unless the government begins to “prosecute homosexuality, especially public acts of homosexuality.”

They are coming after Christians and if there is 45% of Christians in America or 45% of Americans who disagree with homosexuality or homosexual marriage, they will lose their jobs. That’s the goal, to make sure they lose their jobs, to make sure that they are persecuted, to make sure that they may even be burned at the stake. I don’t know what the whole agenda is but it seems to me that this may be a battle between good and evil and evil will not tolerate good. Good may tolerate evil to some extent but I think also we have to draw lines ourselves and encourage the civil magistrate to prosecute homosexuality, especially public acts of homosexuality. When Christians are a little wimpy addressing the issue of homosexuality, get ready friends, Christians will be destroyed by the other side.

Beck Teases Pre-Election Conservative Summit with Hannity, Levin, & Limbaugh

Before he left on his holiday vacation, Glenn Beck hinted at some sort of "conservative summit" that would bring together Beck, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh in the summer of 2014. Today, Beck returned from vacation and discussed the event in a bit more detail, announcing that Hannity has already agreed to participate and is reaching out to Levin, and that the event will probably take place in June at some venue yet to be announced.

What appeared to please Beck most about this planned gathering is that it will take place shortly before the mid-term elections, with Beck and his co-hosts sarcastically musing about how coincidentally fortuitous if would be to "have a massive gathering somewhere right before the mid-terms" at which the conservative movement could come together in unity just before the elections.

"It would be really sad for the other side," said co-host Pat Gray:

Of course, just before the last election, Beck was confident that Mitt Romney would win because "God is not neutral in [the] freedom of all of mankind" and all the Tea Party and prayer rallies were just like what the Founding Fathers did to create this nation.

Morse: 'Deadly,' 'Totalitarian' Feminism Wants To Make Everyone Androgynous

Jennifer Roback Morse of the Ruth Institute, which was until recently affiliated with the National Organization for Marriage, joined Phyllis Schlafly on Eagle Forum Live this weekend to discuss her new book of marriage advice.

Of course, the two turned immediately to bashing feminism, which Morse praised Schlafly for exposing as a “deadly” and “totalitarian” movement that made “men compete with women instead of competing with each other for the sake of women.”

Later in the program, Schlafly asked Morse about a “kooky” new law in California that requires schools to respect the gender identities of transgender students.

“In the end they want to get rid of male and female,” Morse said. “In the end they want everyone to be androgynous.”

She added that this showed that feminists and the gay rights movement harbor a “deep resentment of the human body.”

Morse also linked the fight against gay rights to the fight against the women’s movement, lamenting the cultural “wounds” from the push for equality: “There are so many people out there who have been wounded by the sexual revolution and no one has ever taken the slightest responsibility for that, none. And the only reason we’re dealing with gay marriage now is because we never faced up to the harms that have already been inflicted by feminism.”

Correction: A previous version of this post incorrectly stated that the Ruth Institute is affiliated with the National Organization for Marriage. The two groups formally broke ties in November, 2013.

Erik Rush: Government Officials Should Be 'Hanging From D.C. Like Fruit'

WorldNetDaily’s Erik Rush has been hankering for an anti-Obama revolution for quite some time and on his radio show last week said that officials serving in the Obama administration and Congress should be “hanging from D.C. like fruit.”

Rush was talking to Jim Garrow, the right-wing hoaxer who told Rush that he survived an assassination attempt that was “payback” from President Obama. The two once again insisted that elected officials like Obama have merited the death penalty for their treasonous crimes.

“When the legacy that these people have in reality is shown to the public, it is a wonder that they’re not going to be stoned to death or hung from gallows,” Garrow said.

Garrow: There’s payback and there’s payback to people that are readily gotten to and in this case I think I’m one of the people that has just been paid back, or the attempt was made to pay me back. What I’ve done that would be considered wrong by Mr. Obama is I’ve spoken truth on a number of issues where it was important that the American public understand how they’ve been hoodwinked, how they’ve been lied to, how they’re safety has been compromised, how national security has been compromised and how Obama himself has been a traitor and been involved in treason against the Republic, for which you know the penalty is death.

Rush: Yes, yeah we know that. Yet the left has had a lot of fun with that of course because they interpret that as our advocacy thereof but they twist things anyway so…

Garrow: All we’re advocating is the rule of law.

Rush: Yeah.



Garrow: When the legacy that these people have in reality is shown to the public, it is a wonder that they’re not going to be stoned to death or hung from gallows when it really is shown that self-interest was their interest, not the promise they made to the people.

Rush: I’ve said before that if you had the founders or people who were of the mindset of the founders in power right now overnight that Congressmen, government officials and appointees would be hanging from D.C. like fruit.

Garlow: Christians Are Experiencing 'Full-Blown Persecution Like We Have Not Seen In America'

Jim Garlow was the guest on "Wallbuilders Live" today discussing the Religious Right's favorite topic at the moment: the supposed persecution of Christians in America.

Garlow declared that Evangelical Christians are currently experiencing "full-blown persecution" and warned that if it continues, the Christian church might eventually be entirely shut down by the government and forced underground:

If you are an Evangelical Christian, it's a full-blown persecution like we have not seen in America. We now are beginning to wear a badge of honor that we do not want to wear and that kind of persecution that we find in the rest of the world, we're now experiencing it here and it has enormous implications for the future.

I don't know what's ahead; I'm not going to try and predict the future but I know where it could potentially go and that would be where the government leans on churches so severely, so strongly, not only ripping away their tax exemption which, I assume, many churches could not survive that and the loss of buildings when you don't hire practicing homosexual pastors or you don't perform homosexual weddings and the church is forced officially underground. That could be where we head.
