Even Pat Robertson Thinks Young Earth Creationism Is A 'Joke'

Back in 2012, televangelist Pat Robertson provoked the ire of Young Earth Creationists when he rejected their claim that the earth is approximately 6,000 years old. Today on the 700 Club, Robertson responded to the debate between Bill Nye and Young Earth Creationist leader Ken Ham — who criticized Robertson’s remarks on creationism as a “destructive teaching” that “gives more fodder to the secularists” — by once again rebuking Young Earth Creationism and the chronology system designed by James Ussher.

“Let’s face it, there was a bishop [Ussher] who added up the dates listed in Genesis and he came up with the world had been around for 6,000 years,” Robertson said. “There ain’t no way that’s possible. To say that it all came about in 6,000 years is just nonsense and I think it’s time we come off of that stuff and say this isn’t possible.”

He continued: “We’ve got to be realistic that the dating of Bishop Ussher just doesn’t comport with anything that is found in science and you can’t just totally deny the geological formations that are out there.”

Robertson added that he disagrees with “evolution as it is currently presented” and knocked Creationists: “Let’s be real, let’s not make a joke of ourselves.”

Renew America Calls For Anti-Gay Secessionist Movement…Again

Another columnist for Renew America is floating the idea of secession as a way for states to refuse to recognize marriage equality. Last year, columnist Paul Craft called for states to “secede from the union” in order to maintain their bans on same-sex marriage. Now, Selwyn Duke is proposing the U.S. copy the dissolution of Yugoslavia and break up over gay rights.

Duke predicts that it is only a matter of time before cultural differences in America will become so vast that people cannot coexist. Conservatives, Duke claims, should begin to “hate” and “loathe what the liberals stand for,” and begin to view them as “the ‘other.’”

“We need sort of an Amish jihad, a deep love of the good and hatred of the evil that translates into action,” Duke continues. “But there is a prerequisite for this, and it brings us to something both the Amish and Muslim jihadists have in common.”

"People can do what they want. How does faux marriage affect me, anyway?" (This is the point British "conservatives" have reached.)

And at an even later juncture it's, "Why shouldn't homosexuals have the right to 'marry'? It's a matter of equality." (Just ask some "conservatives" in Sweden.)



Now, all this perhaps sounds hopeless. Are we damned to inexorable and irrevocable movement toward the "left," at least until the complete collapse of civilization is wrought? Well, there is an alternative to assimilation.

Separation.

There has been some talk of secession lately. But note that there is a prerequisite for political separation: cultural separation. Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Slovenia didn't become their own nations because they suddenly thought the name Yugoslavia was no longer cool, but because of profound cultural differences. And Catalans in Spain some time back empowered parties that have called for an independence referendum this year because of cultural differences. Make the cultural differences great enough, and separation (assuming you can avoid bondage via a governmental iron fist, which is the other possibility) is a natural by-product.



We only need to look at how it's done all over the world. And there are two ways. To illustrate the first, consider how ardent Muslims avoid being subsumed. They don't view fellow citizens in a host nation as national brothers.

But as the "other."

Oh, the others may occupy the same borders, but they are as alien as anyone outside them. Their culture is to be rejected not just because it's decadent and despicable – and our liberal-created variety is certainly those things – but because it is of the other. So it is with the others' laws, social codes, and traditions, too: they are born of an infidel, alien culture and are to be viewed with extreme suspicion if not hostility.

And this is precisely how leftists should be viewed.

For this to work, our instincts must be thus: If liberals say left, we go right. If they say down, we say up. If they scream "Change!" we shout all the louder "Tradition!" and then push for our own change – tradition's restoration.

Note here that I'm not speaking of a cold intellectual understanding of the issues, which, don't get me wrong, is important. But just as it is passion that makes a man fight for a woman, it is passion that makes you fight for a cause. Loathe what the liberals stand for, meet their agenda with animosity, cultivate a visceral desire to wipe it from the face of the Earth. Hate, hate, hate it with the fires of a thousand burning suns.



But the proper combination is obvious. We need sort of an Amish jihad, a deep love of the good and hatred of the evil that translates into action. But there is a prerequisite for this, and it brings us to something both the Amish and Muslim jihadists have in common.

Glenn Beck Gets Into Character To Demonstrate ... Something

Glenn Beck has spent several segments on his radio show mocking other networks for their embarrassingly bad bit in which program hosts dress up and attempt to produce humorous skits in an effort to dramatize an issue or explain a point.

Obviously, when other people do it, it is painful and excruciating to watch and the results are inevitably stupid and not at all funny, but when Beck does it, it is brilliant ... which is why, last night, he transformed his television program into a black and white film noir spoof so that he could explain why the proposed MyRA savings plan is no different than playing a slot machine by telling some confusing story about a down-on-his luck chump named Lucky and a legless prostitute named Charlie:

As we noted the other day, at this point Beck's radio and television programs are becoming nothing more than displays of his own hypocrisy, as he mocks, attacks, and criticizes others for doing the exact things he does on a regular basis.

Garrow: Obama Will Soon Implement Sharia Law & Kill People By Guillotine

In an interview last month with The Rundown, right-wing huckster Jim Garrow cited the completely bogus conspiracy theory that Obamacare is paving the way for legal decapitation by guillotine, which he claims is part of President Obama’s plan to impose Islamic law on America.

We wonder if the decapitations will be led by the alien-Canadian army that Garrow keeps talking about.

It’s interesting that people now are in a position to make a choice: Will you protect America and the citizens of America, ‘We the People,’ will you honor the Constitution? Or will you become a lackey and listen to the despot and follow his direction and basically start Murder, Inc.? Because that’s where it’s going to go. What happened now, just recently? We now have a part of Obamacare where we now have legal execution by guillotine. Did you see the list? It’s been added to the list.



If Obama is a Muslim, if the Muslims when they dominate Christians, if what they do is kill them by taking off their heads, decapitation by the sword, this is just another sword, it’s another way, it’s another mollification of Muslims, of Islam, it’s another lining up, paralleling what’s right and able to be done in America, legally, with what the Muslims do. This is dhimmitude, submission, submission to Islam and the traditions of Islam. Done by that bunch of wackos, that bunch of crazies, traitors in the White House led by Mr. Obama.

Family Research Institute: 'Capital Punishment Is Warranted' For Homosexuality

After endorsing Uganda’s crackdown on gay people, the Family Research Institute has posted another statement saluting the country for deciding to “be harsh with those who choose to act on homosexual desires.”

The group, which is led by Paul Cameron, also insisted that the death penalty remain an option in punishing gays: “Depending on the severity of the homosexual offense, a fine, prison time or even capital punishment is warranted. The most important thing is to make it illegal, and thus keep those who fancy it (or seem addicted to it), off the streets, out of schools, with no ‘right’ to proselytize or advertise their preferences. (Current Russian law tries to do this without making the activity illegal; in most of the West, it must be made illegal first.)”

The FRI isn’t the only Religious Right group sympathetic to Uganda’s anti-gay stance: the American Family Association and the Family Research Council have also defended the proposed Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

After comparing homosexuality to incest, rape, bestiality and child abuse—and even arguing that one out of three gay men are guilty of “molesting/raping children or teens”—the group argued that gay people don’t exist. The FRI reasons that a person who identifies as gay is no different from those who see themselves as “Krafts” because they “so strongly prefer Kraft Macaroni and Cheese that the will eat almost nothing else.”

In a sense, there are no ‘homosexuals.’ The Apostle Paul condemns ‘males who have sex with males,’ which is both more precise and less deceptive than labeling as ‘homosexuals’ those who act upon their homosexual desires. Gay activists and the psychiatric professions have reason to use the term “homosexuals” – the former to ‘be a people’ and the latter to bill for a ‘condition.’ But those who so strongly prefer Kraft Macaroni and Cheese that they will eat almost nothing else are no more ‘Krafts’ than those are ‘homosexuals’ who so strongly prefer homosexual sex that they will seldom have heterosexual sex.

The reality is that the vast majority of males who have sex with males have also had sex with females, and almost all females who have had sex with females have had sex with males! ‘Gays’ and ‘lesbians’ may currently prefer sex with others of their sex, but they will, and do, have sex with the opposite sex depending on the situation. Indeed, a large minority of gays and a majority of lesbians report having “been in love with” a member of the opposite sex. We agree with Alfred Kinsey that homosexual interests are a ‘preference.’ The use of the weird term ‘orientation’ is largely to obfuscate the fact that who you have sex with is a choice and not at all necessary to survive, unlike, say, breathing or eating.

Not all sin warrants public laws against it. But many sins do, including many sexual sins. In the past, the Christian Church saw fit to lobby for public legal sanctions against fornication, rape, adultery, divorce, bestiality, incest, child molestation, etc. Some of those sanctions are still on the books and enforced, with little complaint (e.g., rape, child molestation). Until quite recently, homosexual activity also was illegal everywhere in the United States – in direct line with Christian influence – along with almost every other country.

But now under pressure from gay activists and the apathy of a modern Church which is frankly ignorant of the destructive consequences of homosexual behavior and eager to regard homosexuality as a kind of ‘victimless crime’ even if perhaps still sinful (similar to fornication, adultery, or divorce), American legal sanctions against homosexuality have been expunged and the race begun toward full gay marriage rights.



The historic Christian Church lobbied for laws against homosexual behavior, deeming it a personal and societal threat. Today, we should do no less. Depending on the severity of the homosexual offense, a fine, prison time or even capital punishment is warranted. The most important thing is to make it illegal, and thus keep those who fancy it (or seem addicted to it), off the streets, out of schools, with no ‘right’ to proselytize or advertise their preferences. (Current Russian law tries to do this without making the activity illegal; in most of the West, it must be made illegal first.)



Once it is legalized, homosexuality seeks to grow. Many of those ‘sold out’ to homosexual desires (e.g., ‘gays’) seek boys (and sometimes girls) to corrupt into their image. Since a quarter of gays admit to molesting/raping children or teens, and about one of every 7 gay priests has been caught molesting/raping children or teens, it is quite possible that at least a third of men with homosexual interests have done the same.



Indeed, if Uganda is to learn anything from us, it is to be harsh with those who choose to act on homosexual desires. Uganda, especially its boys, will suffer otherwise.

Right Wing Round-Up - 2/4/14

Right Wing Leftovers - 2/4/14

  • For just $25, Rick Santorum will "add your name to the copy of the U.S. Constitution that we’ll send President Obama."
  • Dennis Prager says "Leftism is a religion. It even has a Bible - the editorial page of your newspaper (The New York Times)."
  • On his radio show today, Glenn Beck spent an hour talking with Ted Cruz as well as another segment interviewing Greg Abbot.
  • Janet Parshall says the recent Grammy awards proves that America has embraced the morals of ancient Rome.
  • Bryan Fischer is a conservative because "liberalism kills children."
  • Finally, Jim Garrow hopes that people who have been dismissed from the military will take advantage of "having been loosened from the constraints of obedience to a master [and] serve the nation in a new way, recognizing that the fight against a domestic enemy takes on the aspects of a guerrilla war."

Another School District Forced To Clarify Todd Starnes' Misinformation

Yesterday, Todd Starnes published a new column in which he asserted that students at a Colorado high school had been banned from celebrating America:

Students and parents at a Colorado high school are outraged after administrators turned down their request for a spirit week day honoring America because it might offend non-Americans.

“They said they didn’t want to offend anyone from other countries or immigrants,” a 16-year-old member of the student council told me. “They just really did not want to make anyone feel uncomfortable.”

The student council at Fort Collins High School had proposed having a day to celebrate the United States during next week’s Winter Spirit Week. The young people pitched “’Merica Monday” – and invited their classmates to dress in patriotic colors. Their proposal was promptly shot down by administrators.

As we noted last week, when it comes to anything written by Starnes, it is always wise to wait until the people being vilified in his column have had a chance to weigh in and explain their side of the story because it is usually quite different than the version presented by Starnes. 

And his latest column was no exception, as the school district became the focus on protests today and was forced to issue a statement asserting that Starnes' column "could not be further from the truth" and explaining that the suggested spirit day name was rejected because school officials felt the slag use of the word "'Merica" was disrespectful:

We regret that the recent decision regarding My Country Monday was viewed as not patriotic. This could not be further from the truth. The original intent of Spirit Week at Fort Collins High School was to unify the student body.

When students first proposed Merica Monday, building administrators felt that it was against this unifying theme and disrespectful to our country. Merica is a slang term that is often used in a negative, stereotypical way to describe life in the United States. This is what led administrators to discuss alternatives with students.

We were surprised that our community interpreted these actions as anti-American. Fort Collins High School is a proud public school in America and supports many activities to celebrate this great nation. Due to this outpouring of sentiment and misinterpretation of intentions, school administrators have decided to rename the first day of Spirit Week America Day as opposed to Merica Day.

We look forward to enjoying the creativity and energy of FCHS students as they celebrate their patriotism next week.

This is just one more example of Starnes' dedication to providing "the most accurate information possible":

Creationists Allege 'Darwin Day' Is Unconstitutional, Promotes Nazism

Creation Ministries International is furious that Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ) introduced a “Darwin Day” resolution to honor Charles Darwin’s birthday.

The group claims that such a move is actually an “authoritarian” and unconstitutional violation of the First Amendment’s establishment clause and protection of the freedom of speech. Also, apparently it advances infanticide, violence and Nazism.

Why are the atheists asking the government to endorse something that is so blatantly wrong and obviously a bait and switch tactic? What’s at stake? There are only two views of how the universe, the world and you and I came to be. Either it was created or it evolved. This is a philosophical debate—ultimately, it’s not really about the science. The constitution calls for the state not to be involved in the establishment of any religion—yet a mandated religious view is being proposed.



This has led to much of the moral decay we see in society. So, let the debate really be about science and let’s see who is really teaching it badly. Such teachings have had disastrous consequences on individuals and our societies including promoting euthanasia—and the abortion of millions of innocent unborn children because of the faulty evolutionary belief that they are not yet fully human. Worse still, even President Obama has agreed with arguably the world’s most radical bioethicist/eugenicist, Peter Singer, that infanticide (killing children after they are born) should be legal. If one is old, handicapped or just unwanted—one is not safe anymore.

See the following for the consequences of evolutionary teaching on society:

How to build a bomb in the public school system—The Columbine high school killers link to evolution.

Inside the evolutionary mindset of a killer—the Finnish high school tragedy.

Darwinism and the Nazi race holocaust.

Darwin, eugenics and the death of the defenseless and how modern evolutionists are advocating some of the same.

How would you feel about possibly being forced to take a public holiday to celebrate Darwin and endorse evolution? It’s already happening in the UK! If we allow this to happen any criticism of evolution will not be tolerated. This brainwashing will increasingly create a moral vacuum in our culture. So much for the scientific method of critiquing any hypothesis! Such censorship is authoritarian, and similar regimes with this evolutionary atheism at its core are responsible for more deaths in the last century than in all of the recorded religious wars in history. This is an attack on free speech and our constitutional rights. There is already ample evidence that shows the discrimination against any scientist who does not hold to an evolutionary worldview. What is happening to our great democracies?

God Will Punish America For The Grammy Awards & 'Good Luck Charlie'

It seems that Religious Right activists are still fuming about both the Grammy Awards and the inclusion of a same-sex couple on an episode of the Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie.”

One commentator is promising divine retribution for the television events’ inclusion of gay couples, Beyoncé’s dancing and Katy Perry supposedly sacrificing herself to Satan.

The Christian Post’s Larry Tomczak, who last month claimed that Beyoncé is leading girls into sex trafficking, writes:

My longtime friend Dr. Michael Brown reminds us to be merciful and reject self-righteousness as we winsomely reach out to immoral people and those practicing homosexuality. But in loving all gays, we must resist the radical gay agenda. "It is the greatest threat to religious freedom in our generation!" he declares. Undergirding this should be a godly passion and holy hatred for what this agenda is doing to destroy biblical morality, marriage and family in our generation.

Yesterday someone contacted me, mentioning how timely it was that my last commentary on Michelle Obama and Beyoncé came before Queen Bey's opening performance at the 2014 Grammy awards. This woman, whom our first lady commends as a role model, sang "Drunk in Love" while writhing as a stripper and censors bleeped unprintables during her "sexcapade seranade."

Mind you, this presentation wasn't on late-night cable MTV with Miley Cyrus sensual shenanigans but on a mainstream CBS broadcast during family hours to tens of millions across America and abroad.

The show also featured former Christian Katy Perry flaunting her sex in a satanic witchcraft spectacle with fire, horned men and a sacrificial offering to ... ?

Then Macklemore belted out his gay anthem, "Same Love," as closet lesbian Queen Latifah officiated over a ceremony where same-sex marriages were celebrated.

This annual broadcast is said to represent the very best music has to offer to the world. It also reveals the gravity of the situation we face in our culture today.

That same day, the Disney Channel's kid show Good Luck Charlie introduced two lesbian moms for our children, and later, NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt, an open homosexual, announced his working with lesbian Ellen DeGeneres for a new lesbian-themed comedy called One Big Happy for network TV.

Let's face it: America is in deep trouble and in desperate need of spiritual awakening. Our nation, founded on Judeo-Christian principles, has flourished for three centuries but now is teetering on the precipice. Time is of the essence. We must feel what God feels regarding unfaithfulness to His dictates on sexuality and marriage while praying, proclaiming the gospel and presenting a biblical model for the world to see.
