Pat Robertson: Adult Movies Lead To Demonic Possession

Today on “The 700 Club,” a viewer wrote in to ask Pat Robertson if her son’s “mental issues” are God’s punishment for her purchase of a Ouija board while he was a child.

Robertson said that demonic possession was certainly a possibility, since he once knew of a case where a demon entered a woman’s body after she watched an X-rated movie, “and the demon said, ‘I had permission.’”

“So you gave the demons permission to come into your home when you had a Ouija board,” he explained, advising the woman to seek both professional medical help and an exorcism for her son. “Close the door and send the demon away,” he told her. 

Conservative Pundit: 'The Nation May Not Survive' Caitlyn Jenner's Gender Transition

Cliff Kincaid of the conservative group Accuracy In Media is beside himself that many media outlets are using female gender pronouns to describe Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, and referring to her by the name she recently announced in a Vanity Fair interview.

Kincaid wonders today in BarbWire if Jenner’s gender transition is just “a hoax” to promote an upcoming reality TV show about her story and asks why people aren’t calling her “a pervert or a lunatic.”

The greatest threat of all, Kincaid claims, is to the children, deriding support for Jenner an “extremely damaging” message to kids that will imperil the future of America.

“The truth is that the media have already bought into this hoax and are too far gone, and the United States may be on the inevitable decline as well,” Kincaid writes, warning that “the nation may not survive, as it becomes a laughingstock before self-destructing or becoming easy pickings for a determined foreign adversary.”

On this basis, journalists are supposed to disregard reality and accept whatever various sexual minorities or psychologically disturbed individuals claim to be the case.

This flies in the face of normal rules of objective reporting, which require that things be covered in the way they are, not as people wish them to be.



How does growing one’s hair long and wearing a dress make Bruce Jenner into a woman? Some might say it makes him appear to be crazy, a pervert or a lunatic.

The issue of Vanity Fair featuring the photos of “Caitlyn Jenner” has not yet hit newsstands, but the photos are appearing everywhere in the media, including on the Fox News Channel, where Megyn Kelly declared “Caitlyn Jenner” to be a “courageous” figure.

The rest of the media are also falling into line. “She has finally made her debut,” reported CNN. “Caitlyn Jenner, Formerly Bruce, Introduces Herself in Vanity Fair” was the headline in The New York Times. The paper now calls her “Ms. Jenner.”

But where is the evidence that this is anything but a hoax?



During a period when America desperately needs strong families grounded in the traditional male-female relationship, this message of sexual confusion can have an extremely damaging impact on young people who may be going through challenging periods in their lives.



The truth is that the media have already bought into this hoax and are too far gone, and the United States may be on the inevitable decline as well.

The “courage” we really need is that which stands up to this decline and affirms the traditional relationships based on America’s founding values. But it appears it is just too much to ask for this kind of courage from the media.

America’s families will pay the price. The nation may not survive, as it becomes a laughingstock before self-destructing or becoming easy pickings for a determined foreign adversary.

Mat Staver: Gay Marriage Is A 'Satanic Attack' On Marriage

On today's "Faith and Freedom" radio program, Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver and Matt Barber declared that the push for gay marriage is literally satanic and will bring God's judgment down upon this nation.

"When you put two men together within the same-sex agenda," Staver said, "it is not about the institution of marriage; it is about having the protection, the legal status, it's about using that as a hammer to crush anyone who believes in objective reality, marriage reality, that it is the union of a man and a woman, anyone who believes in human sexuality between a man and a woman and that there are certain limits to moral boundaries that we shouldn't cross and that certain limits are on human sexuality. They literally want to ultimately destroy the institution [of marriage]. This is literally a satanic attack, in my view, and there's no question about it."

Barber, of course, readily agreed, saying that "the whole idea of marriage equality is nothing more than a push to gain the official government sanction on evil."

"It is unnatural, it is immoral, it is self-destructive and it is destructive to society," he added. "If our Supreme Court, if our government puts it stamp of approval on that which is evil, woe to our government ... Woe to our nation when God's judgment comes down upon a nation that calls evil good and good evil."

Mike Huckabee: Gay Marriage Will Criminalize Christianity by Elevating 'A Lifestyle To The Status Of A Civil Right'

This month’s issue of Billy Graham’s Decision magazine contains, along with a fawning profile of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a “special report” on the upcoming Supreme Court gay marriage decision, featuring panicked interviews with GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver.

In an interview with Decision, Huckabee repeated his warning that marriage equality will lead to the “criminalization of Christianity,” saying, “When you elevate a lifestyle to the status of a civil right, I don’t think a lot of believers fully understand or comprehend that once it’s risen to that level and our government accepts it, then anyone who disagrees with it could be at least civilly liable, but more than likely would be criminally liable.”

He warned that if marriage equality is legalized nationwide, it will become a “criminal act” for a pastor to preach against gay marriage. Of course, this has not yet happened in any of the states where gay marriage is currently legal, nor did it ever become illegal to preach against interracial marriage after that was legalized by the Supreme Court nearly 50 years ago.

Similarly, Staver warned that marriage equality is an attack on “the very image of God” and urged churches to prepare for civil disobedience in the mold of pastor and anti-Nazi dissident Dietrich Bonhoeffer: “We’re no longer going to just talk like Dietrich Bonhoeffer, we’re going to act like Dietrich Bonhoeffer.”

“To attack marriage attacks the very image of God,” said Mathew Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel and former dean of the School of Law at Liberty University.

“It puts the State in the position of acting as though it knows better than God and, in fact, is the creator, with the ability to redefine God’s natural created order.”

A decision in favor of same-sex marriage would set off an unprecedented avalanche of threats on religious liberties, potentially affecting virtually every church, pastor, ministry and Christian-owned business.

“The implications are staggering,” Staver said.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee warns that it could even lead to the “criminalization of Christianity.”

“When you elevate a lifestyle to the status of a civil right, I don’t think a lot of believers fully understand or comprehend that once it’s risen to that level and our government accepts it, then anyone who disagrees with it could be at least civilly liable, but more than likely would be criminally liable,” Huckabee, a Republican presidential candidate, told Decision during a recent visit to the Billy Graham Library.

“The impact is this: A pastor getting up in the pulpit and proclaiming God’s Word that marriage is the act of one man and woman joining together for life would violate the civil rights of a same-sex couple. … That would make it a criminal act.”

Proponents of same-sex marriage—backed by the Obama administration—say LGBT couples are being discriminated against and deserve marriage equality protections.

Regardless of how the case turns out, Huckabee made clear that the true definition of marriage will stand.

“Even if the Supreme Court rules that same-sex marriage is OK, it doesn’t make it OK because the Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being,” he said. “The ultimate rules for marriage were not made by the Supreme Court, but by God. He is the One who gave us the blueprint.”

Liberty Counsel’s Staver said of the threat to religious liberties: “You’re not going to be able to have your own opinion if it’s a contrary opinion because the force of the police state will require individuals not just to remain silent, but to affirm and promote same-sex unions and immoral sexual behavior.”

[Liberty Institute president Kelly] Shackelford said it will be difficult for churches to follow their doctrine without interference from the government.

“Almost every ministry is going to have implications,” he said. “Every Christian organization and every church is going to find themselves in a situation where they’re going to have to decide, in many cases, whether to follow man’s new law or God’s law.”

Staver said churches, ministries and individual believers must be willing to practice civil disobedience if that’s what it takes to obey God’s Word.

“We’re no longer going to just talk like Dietrich Bonhoeffer, we’re going to act like Dietrich Bonhoeffer,” Staver said, referring to the German pastor who was imprisoned for resisting Hitler’s Nazi regime.

“We have to say we will not move and we will not compromise. We must say that this is a line we cannot cross, not because we want a controversy or a conflict, not because we’re being belligerent, but because it is such a stark assault on our religious freedom and our Christian beliefs that we cannot cross it. We have to render to God what belongs to God.”

Jindal: Left Trying To 'Outlaw Firmly Held Religious Beliefs That They Do Not Agree With'

Last month, after a Louisiana House committee rejected a bill championed by Gov. Bobby Jindal that would have protected discrimination against gays and lesbians under the guise of “religious liberty," Jindal issued an executive order implementing the policy anyway.

All of this followed an op-ed Jindal had written in the New York Times swearing that he would stand up against the “bullying” by gay rights advocates who had been resisting similar laws in other states.

That op-ed earned Jindal, who is also a likely GOP presidential candidate, a glowing portrait in this month’s edition of Decision, the magazine published by Billy Graham’s ministry, in which he declared that by resisting such “right to discriminate” measures, liberals are trying “to essentially outlaw firmly held religious beliefs that they do not agree with.”

He also claimed that the Louisiana bill that was ultimately rejected was “not about discriminating against folks.”

Jindal says the debate over gay marriage really transcends the marriage issue and reveals the agenda of the secular left.

“The left is now in full battle mode against the right to religious freedom that is guaranteed by the First Amendment, and we’re seeing it firsthand in my state,” Jindal said. “You saw the bullying tactics they recently used to intimidate other states when the states tried to pass laws protecting religious freedom. … This is a battle by the left to essentially outlaw firmly held religious beliefs that they do not agree with.”

Jindal emphasized to Decision that the Louisiana law would not allow for discrimination against people because of sexual orientation, and he disputed the charges by opponents that protecting the religious liberties of Americans is somehow “hateful.”

“This is not about discriminating against folks or about judging people,” Jindal said. “This is simply about protecting the essential religious freedom rights in the First Amendment.”

AFA Continues Crusade Against Conservative Pundit Guy Benson Because He's Gay

When Guy Benson of the conservative outlet Townhall publicly came out as gay, it was only a matter of time before American Family Radio’s Bryan Fischer issued a statement claiming that “Benson must be replaced” since he, as a prominent gay conservative, is “particularly dangerous to the conservative cause.”

Today, Sandy Rios, the American Family Association’s director of governmental affairs, told the AFA’s news service OneNewsNow that Benson’s presence at the upcoming Western Conservative Summit is “a serious problem” since he supports marriage equality, which she claims will lead to mass persecution “against Christians and social conservatives.”

A conservative activist and radio talk show host calls it troubling that an open homosexual will speak at an event featuring GOP presidential hopefuls.

Several GOP candidates will take part in the Western Conservative Summit 2015 scheduled for June 26-28 in Denver.

Also present at the Summit will be conservative author Guy Benson, the public editor at Townhall.com who recently revealed that he is homosexual and supports same-sex "marriage." Sandy Rios, director of governmental affairs at the American Family Association, calls it a mistake when social conservatives, especially Christians, embrace someone who supports gay "marriage."

"I think it's a serious problem," says Rios, "especially as we hurdle toward a Supreme Court decision where very likely the Supreme Court will decide against Christians and social conservatives, and very likely the persecution that will result from that decision will be exponential."



The schedule of events shows Benson is scheduled to appear at a Saturday luncheon to discuss the topic, "Why the Left wants to end discussion."

Rios says Benson is not the only summit participant with a problematical view of homosexuality. She says journalist Mary Katharine Ham also supports same-sex marriage and special rights for homosexuals.

Rick Wiles: 'Murderous Islamic Thugs' Are Sitting On Hillary Clinton's Lap

On yesterday’s edition of “Trunews,” Christopher Farrell of Judicial Watch spoke to host Rick Wiles about his group’s claim that the U.S. compound in Benghazi was “arming Al Qaeda” and coordinating arms shipments to Islamic terrorists in Syria, which raises questions as to why then Islamic terrorists attacked the compound in 2012.

Wiles said that there would have been “calls for the arrest of Barack Obama” had people realized that he was secretly sending arms to terrorists (which he wasn’t).

Wiles claimed that just as Gary Hart’s “presidential campaign was stopped in its tracks because a photograph surfaced of him with a pretty blonde sitting on his lap, now we have murderous Islamic thugs sitting on the lap of Hillary Clinton and nobody cares.”

The two then brought up the discredited conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton murdered Vince Foster.

A Republican-led investigation by the House Select Committee on Intelligence, like other investigations, found that Judicial Watch’s allegations about arm shipments to Syria don’t hold water:

Sandy Rios: Caitlyn Jenner's Transition Is A 'Tragedy,' The 'Saddest Story'

Sandy Rios, the far-right host of American Family Radio’s “Sandy Rios in the Morning,” is unhappy with people expressing their happiness for Caitlyn Jenner. In fact, Rios laments that Jenner’s gender transition is “a human tragedy” and “probably one of the saddest stories on the news sites this week.”

Rios warned her listeners this morning that they would “see today, if you haven’t already, that the cover of Vanity Fair is the new Bruce Jenner, calling himself Caitlyn Jenner. It’s, uh, a photo spread done by Annie Leibovitz, who’s a very famous photographer.”

This sentiment, as well as the inability to use the correct pronouns, was echoed by evangelist Franklin Graham, who took to Facebook today to critique Vanity Fair’s coverage of Jenner, claiming that “the author talks as if Bruce and his newly chosen identity of ‘Caitlyn’ are two separate people. Bruce’s son Burt said, ‘I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce.’ The article also says Jenner openly acknowledges mistakes made with his children as Bruce, ‘and expresses genuine regret.’”

But Graham has “news for them,” insisting that “changing the outside doesn’t change the inside. No man-made modification can fix what’s wrong with the heart. Only God can fix the human heart. If we ask for His forgiveness and accept by faith His Son, Jesus Christ, He will wipe the slate clean. The Bible says, ‘Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new’ (2 Corinthians 5:17).”

 

In Vanity Fair’s cover story about Bruce Jenner’s gender change, the author talks as if Bruce and his newly chosen...
