Fischer Calls For The Use Of Corporal Punishment In Public Schools

Bryan Fischer spent a large portion of his radio program today hailing the effectiveness of spanking as a biblically-approved form of discipline and cackling as he recounted how he and his wife used a wooden spoon to spank their own children on their bare bottoms because "the bottom is just designed by God for that."

Eventually, Fischer got around to calling for the use of corporal punishment in public schools, saying failure to allow teachers to physically discipline children is why there are so many behavioral problems in school and why children today are getting such a poor education.

"I want to tell you," Fischer said, "we are not going to have a functional education system where kids are actually learning, you're not going to have an environment conducive to learning until we bring corporal discipline back into our elementary schools, into our public schools. That is the only way you're going to be able to maintain the kind of environment in a class room where kids can actually learn something":

AFA Falsely Claims Obama And Kerry Refuse To Condemn Attacks On Christians

In a press release last week, the American Family Association accused President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry of deliberately refusing to condemn anti-Christian attacks or extremist groups.

In the past two weeks, radical Islamists have murdered hundreds of Christians around the world.

Without question, Christians are being targeted for assassination solely because of their faith in Christ. Entire families, including children, are slaughtered in their homes, churches and public gatherings.

Ironically, while Christian lives are being silenced by radical jihadists, the United States White House is silent in its response. These killings have not been condemned by the president, his secretary of state, or his administration.

Below, we have summarized the senseless slaughter of Christians over the past two weeks. Join us in asking President Barak Obama [sic] and Secretary of State John Kerry to speak out and use the influence of the United States to halt the slaughter of Christians by radical jihadists.

At a time when even members of Congress are accusing Obama of supporting Al Qaeda, let’s see if the AFA’s claims that Obama refuses to condemn groups committing anti-Christian violence hold water:

Sunday, September 22 - Peshawar, PAKISTAN

Islamic suicide bombers mingled with Christians gathering after morning worship service at All Saints Church for dinner on the grounds. The Islamists blew themselves up, killing 90 Christians and injuring 120 more.

Obama condemned the attack during his speech at the United Nations [PDF].

Sunday, September 29 - Potiskum, NIGERIA

Members of the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram shot 50 college students and burned the school as the students slept in their dorms. Although the victims included both Christians and Muslim students, the name of the assassins, Boko Haram means "Western education is forbidden."

The State Department in its report on religious freedom in Nigeria condemned Boko Haram, including the group’s attacks on Christians and churches. Earlier this year, President Obama called Boko Haram “one of the most vicious terrorist organizations in the world,” and chief of staff Denis McDonough similarly denounced their attacks on Christians and Muslims.

Saturday, September 21 - Nairobi, KENYA

Jihadist members of Somalia's al-Shabab took hundreds of hostages and killed 67 Christians at the Westgate Mall, after people who identified themselves as Muslims, and who could give the name of Mohamed's mother to leave.

Obama condemned the Westgate Mall attack during his speech at the United Nations [PDF].

Wednesday, September 18 - Maaloula, SYRIA

Islamists arriving in this 2000-year-old village, which is one of the only places in the world where Aramaic is still spoken, announced, "We are from the Al-Nusra Front and have come to make lives miserable for the Crusaders"; (an Islamic slur meaning Christians). After many deaths, the town was retaken by the Syrian Army, but only about 20 families remain.

The State Department designated Al-Nusrah Front as a terrorist organization and denounced the group’s many attacks against civilians.

Saturday, September 21, 2013 - Dorawa, NIGERIA

Jihadists killed a pastor and his son and burned their church in the northern state of Yobe where Islamists are attempting to impose Sharia law.

The State Department in its report on religious freedom in Nigeria condemned attacks on Christians and churches.

Wednesday, September 25 - Derna District, LIBYA

Two Christian men, Waleed Saad Shaker, age 25, and Nash 'at Shenouda Ishaq, age 27, were traveling on a rural road when they were surrounded by a crowd of Muslim men. The Christians were robbed, tied up and beaten. Then the Muslims demanded that they recite the shahada, the declaration of conversion to Islam. When the Christians refused, they were shot. Shakar died before they were found by a shepherd. Ishaq died in hospital.

The State Department in its report on religious freedom in Nigeria condemned anti-Christian violence.

Maybe the AFA should do a simple Google search before sending out this statement, unless they are boycotting Google.

Brown Says He Was Invited To Testify At Duma By Activists Working With World Congress Of Families

Last week, we broke the news that National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown traveled to Moscow in June, where he testified before a Duma committee in favor of a ban on the adoption of Russian orphans by gay couples and single people living in countries that allow gay people to marry.

Neither NOM nor Brown mentioned his trip publicly at the time, and NOM didn’t return our request for comment last week. But in an interview with Russia’s Ria Novosti today, Brown confirms that he spoke “extemporaneously” at the Duma meeting, and that he was invited to do so by “Russian activists working with the World Congress of Families.”

Brown said he was invited to speak to the lawmakers by Russian activists working with the World Congress of Families, an Illinois-based conservative group set to hold a global convention in Moscow next year.

….

“We’ve been very open that we’re going to work with allies around the world that believe marriage is a union between a man and a woman,” Brown said.

As we also reported last week, the Illinois-based World Congress of Families has been working hard to promote Russia’s new anti-gay laws through its official “representative in Russia” Alexei Komov and “ambassador to European institutions” Pavel Parfentiev. The WCF has also helped to gather international support for President Putin’s anti-gay crackdown, including promoting an international statement praising a ban on gay “propaganda.”

Brown is a strong supporter of WCF, which in a fundraising pitch this year he called “THE group standing up for family values around the world.”

Beck The Brave: 'Against Systems That Will Become Enemies Of All Humanity, I Stood'

When he is not busy screaming about the fact that President Obama is a dictator, Glenn Beck is fond of proclaiming what a bold and courageous hero he is, as he did again today when he declared that his family will be able to hold their heads high in the future knowing that he alone was willing to bravely take a stand against the "systems that will become enemies of all humanity."

"I feel compelled to say this at this point for the record," Beck said. "I want my children and my grandchildren to be able to air this episode. I stood. I gave it my all. I did everything I could. Against all odds, I stood. In the face of an avalanche; against, quite honestly, systems that will become enemies of all humanity, I stood. I want my children and my grandchildren to be able to have my name and say 'when all of the rest of your families did nothing, this is what my family did'":

Beck Can't Take Any More Of Dictator Obama's 'Marxist Propaganda Bullcrap'

Glenn Beck began his radio program today by dedicating the entire first segment to an extended rant against the America-hating/Communist/Progressive/Marxist dictator inhabiting the White House that culminated with him screaming into his microphone because he just can't take listening to any more of President Obama's "Marxist propaganda bullcrap":

Robertson: Secret Demonic Objects In Your House Could Give You Headaches

Earlier this year, Pat Robertson told 700 Club viewers that it wasn’t a bad idea to pray over clothes, and even rings, just in case they have a demon attached to them. When a viewer asked him today how she could manage to pray over everything in her house every day, Robertson said not to worry too much… unless God is telling you that there are in fact demons in your house.

“What is important is: were these objects actually used in some kind of Satanic ritual? Some occult practice? If that’s the case, then there might be some demonic force that attaches to that which was used in pagan worship,” Robertson said. “In terms of going around and saying this is cursed and that’s cursed, you can drive yourself crazy doing that.”

Co-host Wendy Griffith claimed that she knew of cases where God told a preacher to remove certain paintings from his house “because they have something attached to them,” and Robertson agreed: “I’ve heard of people who had headaches, they get something from overseas and it looks so beautiful yet it’s actually a deity, a demonic force has attached itself to that.”

Religious Right Will Cheer Tea Party Extremism at Values Voter Summit

Pat Robertson, Who Admits He Doesn't Know What Transgender Means, Compares Transgender People To His Castrated Horse

Today on the 700 Club, Pat Robertson reacted to a David Brody report on a new California law protecting transgender students by blasting the law as “insane.”

“I may be an old fuddy-duddy, what is transgender?” Robertson asked co-host Wendy Griffith.

Despite Robertson’s admission that he doesn’t know what it means to be transgender, that didn’t stop him from criticizing the law. Robertson said that while he is “not opposed” to gender reassignment surgery, “but this whole business about transgenders, you’re saying they’ve got boy parts but they want to go to the girls’ restroom, that’s absurd.”

Robertson said he is sticking up for “the normal people” against the “insane” LGBT rights movement:

Why are we exposed to this stuff? They are driving the agenda, driving everybody crazy, all this sexual identity, sexual politics, ‘Mommy Has Two Mommies’ [sic] and all that stuff, it’s a tiny fringe but they seem to have control of the levers of power in the media and especially in Hollywood. But it’s insane. I just cannot believe that the normal people in America, the people who want to just live their lives can’t be allowed to do it without having this stuff imposed on them constantly. You’ve explained to me, I’m not sure we know yet.

Later in the broadcast, Robertson said: “now, we talk about transgender, I have a former stallion who is now a gelding.”

Fischer Claims Obama Will Use Future Shutdowns To Withhold Health Care From All But The Young and Loyal

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer, who last week claimed that President Obama wants to arrest veterans attempting to visit memorials during the government shutdown and “haul them off to jail,” is now warning that the Obama administration will use the Affordable Care Act to curtail health care services during future shutdowns.

On his radio show yesterday, Fischer read enthusiastically from a Rightwing News blog post that claims that the administration will withhold health care from all but “those who are young enough, correct enough or wealthy and powerful enough”:

And so it goes from nudge, to shove and very soon, to shoot. Surely Americans now see they are living under the iron fist of a dictator. They are using lands and monuments that belong to America against us – held hostage as wards of the State, not property of the free. What makes Americans think that with the government in control of healthcare that they won’t use the same tactics? Comply or no antibiotics for you… submit or no chemotherapy… kneel or no transplant. And even then, only those who we deem young enough, correct enough or wealthy and powerful enough will receive the benefits of the all-controlling Marxist State. America has become Russia’s protege thanks to the enemies within.

“If you’ve got a government that with a phone call can shut down a war memorial, can send orders to police to lock people up that go there, that can issue $100 fines for jogging in a national park, what makes us think they can be trusted with our health care?” Fischer said. “If they can do that to Americans when it comes to access to national parks, what are they going to do when we’re talking about access to health care?”
 

Bachmann: Obama 'Committed Impeachable Offenses,' Wants To Be A Dictator

Speaking with conservative talk show host Rusty Humphries on a conference call sponsored by TheTeaParty.net yesterday, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota suggested that the House hold hearings on impeaching the president. Bachmann said that “impeachment is the stain” on the presidency and “We can have an impeachment hearing in the House and in my mind the President has committed impeachable offenses.”

“With Harry Reid in charge of the Senate, unless there is some miracle that happens,” Bachmann lamented, “Harry Reid is not going to remove Obama from office.”

The Minnesota congresswoman, who recently said that Obama is aiding Al Qaeda and plunged the world into the End Times, told Tea Party activists that we “could be on the cusp of seeing some civil disobedience” similar to what happened in Egypt because “people aren’t going to take this thuggery of this President much longer.”

“We see thuggery going on in the White House, we’re not going to take it, we’ve drawn a line in the sand,” Bachmann maintained, adding that Obama needs to know that he is “not a dictator.”

“What this is about is whether or not we will hold onto a constitutional republic,” Bachmann told listeners about the government shutdown fight. “I want the Tea Party to know they made a profound difference and what they’re fighting for is to see if we’re actually going to be a constitutional republic or if we’re going to be totally devolved into a dictatorship under somebody like Barack Obama.”

Bachmann also took issue with the press, which she said “could rightly be called ‘Treason Media.’”

“They have done everything they can to facilitate this president because they agree with him, they agree with his worldview, they agree with his message, they have no interest in the truth, they only have an interest in protecting this President,” Bachmann charged, pointing to the media’s supposed lack of questions about the Benghazi attack.

Bachmann even reacted to Miley Cyrus’s impersonation of her on Saturday Night Life, telling activists that she didn’t mind the skit and assured them, “I’ve never done twerking in my life and I don’t intend to take it up.”
