Trey Ware: America Is Suffering Riots, Terrorist Attacks, And Gay Marriage Because The 'Nation Left God'

On yesterday's "Hagee Hotline," host Matthew Hagee had a discussion with local San Antonio conservative radio host Trey Ware about the attack on an anti-Islam event in Texas carried out by two Islamic radicals over the weekend. Ware declared that the attack, along with the unrest in Baltimore and the push for marriage equality, are all the result of America having abandoned God.

After saying that blaming organizers of the anti-Islam event for the attack is "blaming the victim, like what happens in certain rape cases," Ware said that this is all part of an ever-worsening "spiritual battle."

"There is no doubt that America, when we decided, as a nation I'm talking about, years ago to say, 'No, God, we don't want you in the schools, we don't want you anywhere,' and churches even said we don't want you in the churches, then God said 'okay,'" Ware said. "And we are now reaping what we have sown in America society. These riots that we have seen, the discussion about homosexual marriage that you and I are going to talk about today, and even the situation where terrorists are in our country, a lot of this is because we as a nation left God":

Ben Carson: Federal Government Doesn't Need To Recognize Gay Marriage SCOTUS Ruling

Yesterday on Newsmax TV, Ben Carson said that the federal government does not need to recognize a Supreme Court decision on gay marriage because the president is only obligated to recognize laws passed by Congress, not judicial rulings.

“First of all, we have to understand how the Constitution works, the president is required to carry out the laws of the land, the laws of the land come from the legislative branch,” Carson said. “So if the legislative branch creates a law or changes a law, the executive branch has a responsibly to carry it out. It doesn’t say they have the responsibility to carry out a judicial law.”

He also added that members of the judiciary should have term limits in order to “adjust with the times.”

Carson, who announced his campaign for president on Monday, has previously floated the idea of impeaching judges who back marriage equality.

New Research Further Debunks Regnerus Study On Gay Parenting

In an upcoming article, a pair of sociologists are putting what they call the “final nail in the coffin” of the much-criticized study by University of Texas sociologist Mark Regnerus that purported to show that being raised by gay and lesbian parents harms children. The Regnerus study has become a favorite tool of Religious Right activists seeking to show that households led by same-sex couples are bad for children. At the same time, the study has come under scrutiny for the funding it received from anti-gay groups and for its lack of respondents who were actually raised in same-sex parent households.

Indiana University's Brian Powell and the University of Connecticut’s Simon Cheng didn’t just find methodological flaws in Regnerus’ research — they took the data he collected, cleaned it up, and redid the study, coming to a very different conclusion about families led by same-sex couples. Their article will be published in “Social Science Research,” the same journal that published the Regnerus study.

By eliminating suspect data — for example, a 25-year-old respondent who claimed to be 7’8” tall, 88 pounds, married 8 times and with 8 children, and another who reported having been arrested at age 1 — and correcting what they view as Regnerus’ methodological errors, Cheng and Powell found that Regnerus’ conclusions were so “fragile” that his data could just as easily show that children raised by gay and lesbian parents don’t face negative adult outcomes.

“[W]hen equally plausible and, in our view, preferred methodological decisions are used,” they wrote, “a different conclusion emerges: adult children who lived with same-sex parents show comparable outcome profiles to those from other family types, including intact biological families.”

In other words, as University of Maryland sociologist Philip Cohen put it, “when you clean the data and fix the things that are fixable, the results just don’t hold up.”

Three years ago, Regnerus published an ambitious attempt to quantify how being raised by same-sex parents affects children once they reach adulthood. His findings were dramatic and were quickly seized upon by opponents of LGBT equality around the world: People who had been raised by gay parents, Regnerus said, were more likely to suffer from depression and drug abuse, take part in criminal behavior, develop sexually transmitted infections and were more likely to have been sexually abused as children.

The Regnerus study was promptly scrutinized by fellow social scientists, who pointed out major flaws in his methodology. Many people who he categorized as having been raised by a gay or lesbian parent had spent very little time with that parent or with his or her same-sex partner. Even Regnerus admitted that his data included only two people who said they had been raised for their entire childhoods by a same-sex couple.

Yet, the Regnerus study continues to be cited by opponents of marriage equality and other LGBT rights issues across the globe, and Regnerus himself has even used his research to testify against marriage equality in the courts.

In an amicus brief opposing marriage equality in Louisiana, Regnerus and several other social science professors wrote that despite “the attention and scrutiny” to his study, it “remains in print and subsequent analyses of the (now publicly-accessible) data have revealed no analytic errors.”

“That is no longer true,” Powell told us. “There are major analytic errors in the study.”

Regnerus compared the outcomes of children raised in what he called “intact biological families” (with married biological parents) “lesbian mother” families and “gay father” families, finding differences between “lesbian mother” families and “intact biological families” in 24 of the 40 areas he looked at, and differences between “gay father” families and “intact biological” ones in 19 areas. 

But in scrutinizing Regnerus’ data, Cheng and Powell determined that of the 236 respondents whom Regnerus had identified as having been raised by a lesbian mother or gay father, one-tenth had never even lived with the parent in question and an additional one-sixth hadn’t lived with that parent for more than one year. Still more had provided inconsistent or unreliable responses to survey questions, throwing their reliability into doubt. That means, Powell says, that over one-third of the 236 people whom Regnerus classified as having been raised by a lesbian mother or gay father “should absolutely not have ever been considered by Regnerus in this study.”

Reanalyzing Regnerus’ data after eliminating respondents who offered dubious biographical information and recategorizing people who clearly were not raised by gay parents, Cheng and Powell found only three statistically significant differences between  the respondents raised by a lesbian mother and those who reported having been raised in “intact biological family” households. Only one of those differences could be considered a negative adult outcome — those respondents were more likely to have had an affair while married or cohabitating. Even that is hardly a smoking gun, says Powell: “If you study 40 different variables or outcomes…just by the law of chance, a few of them should be statistically significant.”

Cheng said that in taking on “one of the most controversial articles published in the history of social science research,” they tried to stay away from the debate about Regnerus’ ideology or the source of his funding. “What we can do is analyze the data,” he said.

 

Bachmann: The Clinton Foundation Is 'An International Money Laundering Ring'

Steve Malzberg interviewed Michele Bachmann on his Newsmax radio program yesterday about the supposed Clinton Foundation "scandal," which the former congresswoman addressed with her typical nuance and perspicacity.

"This Clinton Foundation," she said, "is in effect an international money laundering ring to benefit the Clintons personally" so that they can "live the life of potentates."

"What's the best way to continue that lifestyle?" Bachmann asked, rhetorically. "Start an international foundation and get people to give you big money. But they use poor people as human shields for their pompous lifestyle":

WND Pundit: Obama Sparked Baltimore Riots To Cancel 2016 Election, Declare Martial Law

Morgan Brittany writes in WorldNetDaily today that the recent riots and demonstrations in Baltimore were all “planned” by President Obama to privilege African-Americans above all others and usher in “the breakdown of our society.” Obama worked with Al Sharpton, Brittany adds, to create “a call to war” and fan “the flames of hate for the police.”

Brittany thinks she has stumbled upon the real end game of Obama’s race-war plan. If the Baltimore police officers who were indicted in the death of Freddie Gray are not convicted, then “perhaps Obama will have to institute martial law to preserve order, form a national police force and postpone the 2016 elections.”

“Crazy? Maybe, but we are on the edge in this country,” she writes. “Attacks are coming from all sides, from inside and outside of our borders, and we are becoming overwhelmed.”

I don’t think the chaos in Baltimore “just happened”; I think it was planned and is the next step in the breakdown of our society. I’m not saying that Freddie Gray, the 25 year old African-American man who died at the start of this was responsible; he was just the catalyst that the anarchists needed. He was the spark that ignited the flames.

This is not new. The playbook for inciting riots and racial division has been followed for years, definitely at a slower pace than we are seeing today – but now the final chapters are being read, and the climax is imminent.

Ever since the election of Barack Obama, racial tensions have ramped up. He was supposed to be the one to unite all Americans and heal the divide, but instead, he did everything he could to turn the heat up and make sure the divide became wider. He surrounded himself with racially divisive people in his administration like Attorney General Eric Holder. He inserted himself into every controversy that had a racial component, like the incident in July of 2009 with the Cambridge police, the Trayvon Martin case, Ferguson and more. And whether right or wrong, even before evidence was presented, he always took the side of the African-American. It became obvious that his concern was not for all Americans but a select few. In an attempt to show “African-Americans” that he cared, he instead succeeded in tearing off the scab of old wounds from the 1960s and fanning the flames of hate for the police.

Once the seeds were planted again, he teamed up with Al Sharpton who became a regular at the White House. Certainly their meetings were not about how to heal the divide after each racial crisis, because the rhetoric Sharpton spewed was a call to war!



From now until the verdict in this trial, the agitators will continue to travel and communicate city to city, town to town, stirring up unrest and hate, keeping people on edge waiting to see the result of this cliff-hanger. If the verdict is not what they want, perhaps Obama will have to institute martial law to preserve order, form a national police force and postpone the 2016 elections.

Crazy? Maybe, but we are on the edge in this country. Attacks are coming from all sides, from inside and outside of our borders, and we are becoming overwhelmed. What happens when Baltimore spreads across the country and our television screens show four or five cities burning at once? Who will we turn to at that point? “One Nation under God” – we need Him now more than ever.

Michael Savage: Terrorists 'Infiltrated' Obama Administration

In an interview with Alex Jones yesterday, in which he warned that America has descended into a race war in which President Obama will begin arming the Crips and the Bloods, Michael Savage cited the terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, as proof that radical Islamists have “penetrated” and “infiltrated” the Obama administration.

“We know that the president’s middle name is not ‘Jesus.’ We know that the military has been told to stand down. We know that the police has been told to stand down. We know that there is only one scared religion in America and it’s the founding religion, it’s the invasive religion,” Savage said. “Someone in that team, in the White House, is playing for the other side, they’re not on our side.”

Savage said that Obama “has been at war with America” since he graduated from college “and discovered his Afro roots,” when he “found out that by acting like a black radical, everyone kissed his feet and look where he is today. So why should he stop now? He wasn’t a radicalized young man but he found out that the white people fell on his feet the minute he acted out the Black Panther game. ”

Sandy Rios: Muslims 'Colonizing' Texas And Tennessee

Sandy Rios, the American Family Association’s governmental affairs director, dedicated her radio program today to discussing the recent attempted attack on a “Draw Mohammad Contest” organized by Pamela Geller in Garland, Texas.

While chatting about the incident with a listener who lives in Garland, Rios warned that “there has been a real strategic colonization of Muslims around the country.”

“They’ve targeted places like Tennessee, Texas, places that are strong bastions of conservatism and opposition and there have been some intentional stuff going on here,” Rios said. “The whole mode of jihad is to move in and multiply and gradually overtake.” Rios added that while she would “never mistreat” a Muslim neighbor, she would find it “hard to be gracious” since she knows that they are only moving to her community to wage jihad and she “recognizes what the end game is.”

The listener, David, claimed that Muslim residents of Garland have turned the community into a “war zone” and have set up “a no-go zone, if you will,” in the form of a Muslim school. He also said the nearby city of Richardson “has been taken over by Muslims who have settled there.”

Sam Rodriguez: Gay Marriage Leads To Anti-Christian Discrimination, Hate Speech Laws

During last week’s National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, where Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee made their pitches for the Latino vote, NHCLC head Sam Rodriguez told a TIME reporter that Republicans will not “fight arduously” to overturn a Supreme Court decision striking down bans on same-sex marriage.

Of course, on the very same day Rodriguez announced that he and other NHCLC leaders signed a pledge to commit civil disobedience in defiance of any Supreme Court legalizing gay marriage. Rodriguez also told a reporter for the Christian Broadcasting Network that such a ruling would usher in a wave of anti-Christian persecution and possibly hate speech laws banning pastors from quoting the Bible.

He warned that the Supreme Court ruling will decide the fate not only of gay rights but whether parts of the Bible “will be deemed as hate speech” and whether “I will be deemed as a bigot, as an intolerant human being and then we will have laws that will begin to discriminate against me because I am a Christian.”

“This Supreme Court decision carries the potential of initiating a chapter of intolerance towards Christians and bigotry towards Christians in the 21st century,” Rodriguez said.
