Good news: Creflo Dollar will be getting the $70 million private jet that he needs.
Cliff Kincaid explains that Joseph McCarthy "didn’t go far enough; the Marxist manipulation of culture was never examined in the detail that was required."
Monica Cole of AFA's One Million Moms demands that Fox cancel the new program "Lucifer" because "the show is not only disrespecting Christianity and mocking the Bible, but it can mess with people's eternity."
Steve McConkey of 4 Winds Christian Athletics warns that "sports hero Bruce Jenner, now supposedly Caitlyn, will open a floodgate of immorality that will affect Americans for generations to come. Jenner's decision will be exploited by the media and the education system throughout the world. Confused people will now have an adult transgender as a hero."
Finally, a proposed California law designed to protect women from being misled by "crisis pregnancy centers" apparently draws "striking parallels to the Fugitive Slave Acts of 1793 and 1850."
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.
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, 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...
Conservative activists love to complain that religious freedom in the U.S. is under attack because companies in some states aren’t allowed to deny service to customers based on certain characteristics. However, when a Muslim job applicant is denied employment simply because of a religious garment she wears, then it’s appropriate, and any action to prevent such discrimination is Sharia law!
At least, according to Michelle Malkin, the conservative commentator who made the case yesterday on Newsmax.
Reflecting on an 8-1 Supreme Court ruling in favor of a job prospect who was turned down by Abercrombie & Fitch over concerns that she would [violate] wear a headscarf, that determined that “an employer may not make a job applicant’s religious practice, confirmed or otherwise, a factor in employment decisions,” Malkin insisted that non-discrimination laws, in this case the Civil Rights Act, represent onerous burdens on business.
“We have seen this increasing narrative of capitulating to unreasonable political correctness over and over and over again,” Malkin said, before criticizing “grievance-mongerers” who “pretend they stand up for the religious liberty of Muslims.”
“There’s something much more insidious and nefarious going on,” she said, mentioning the case of a Muslim woman who felt that an airline singled her out during a flight as a security risk: “The grievance-mongering industry has a very good way of forcing this country to apologize for the freedoms that we do have and in essence what we’re talking about here is the tacit adoption of Sharia law in America.”
She went on to criticize Democrats for trying to “shame people who are financially successful,” who of course, are the real victims of persecution in America.
Right-wing Christian apologist Alex McFarland was brought on as a guest on AFA's "Today's Issues" radio program this morning to share his thoughts on the gender transition of Caitlyn Jenner, which he said was "demonic."
"God would not make us a certain way and then demand we not be that way," McFarland said. "When people have gender confusion, which is so prevalent in our country right now and the lines of gender have been blurred, that's not God. We don't blame that on God."
"Homosexuality, same-sex attraction, gender confusion is a means of trying to deal with pain," he continued. "I believe the whole transgender, someone trying to change their sexuality [sic], it's the ultimate form of moral relativism because it's saying, 'God, you have no control on me. God, you have no claim on my life, not even over my gender' ... When Bruce Jenner, he was on CNN a month ago, when he said that he's got the soul of a woman, that's demonic."
On the "WallBuilders Live" radio program today, David Barton warned that LGBT rights activists are seeking to "evangelize" public school students in order to recruit them into homosexuality.
Reacting to reports that an elementary school in Maine had read "I Am Jazz," a book about a transgender child, to young students, Barton warned that this was part of an effort by LGBT activists to evangelize young kids into thinking that they are gay.
"This is evangelism," Barton said. "This is exactly how you evangelize. You raise questions. You give examples. You share stuff, you create relational stories. They're doing evangelism for transgenders."
Barton then went on to once again cite his favorite 19th century source to explain that this is exactly why homosexuality should be illegal.
"The simple answer goes back to a law book in 1814 is that folks like this, like homosexuals, they have to recruit kids," he said. "That's the only way they can keep their movement alive because adults don't go there. You have to recruit kids. And so that's why, back in 1814, they were explaining why we don't allow homosexuality, why our laws are against that, because you're evangelizing kids for that lifestyle."
Last month, a federal judge acquitted creationist tax scofflaw Kent Hovind of contempt of court and dismissed conspiracy and mail fraud charges against him and "Coach" Dave Daubenmire is pretty sure that it was the prayer effort organized by his "Salt and Light Brigade" that made the difference.
Fresh off of that victory, Daubenmire is now organizing a solemn assembly outside the Supreme Court on June 14 at which right-wing Christians will gather to repent for America and ask God to break through to Justice Anthony Kennedy so that he will vote against legalizing gay marriage.
As Daubenmire told radio host Chuck Wilder yesterday, his Salt and Light Brigade hopes to organize prayer rallies all over America to take place at the same time in order to "focus their guns at the same target" and "punch a hole in the heavenlies."
"We're going to have a solemn assembly of prayer and repentance, asking God, please God, help us rescue marriage," Daubenmire said. "And we're going to totally focus on Justice Kennedy, we believe he is the swing vote, and we're just going to ask the Lord to forgive us of our sins and turn the heart of Justice Kennedy that he might see the error of his ways and protect marriage."
Not everyone will be able to join Daubenmire outside the Supreme Court for this rally, he realizes, which is why he is asking for people to organize rallies of their own to take place at the same time in order to increase the power of their prayer effort, likening it to hundreds of people gathering with Super Soaker squirt guns and focusing their aim all on the same spot instead of just spraying in all directions.
"Concentrated, focused prayer" is what Daubenmire needs, he said. "We're going to focus all of our power in the same direction rather than just sporadically squirting our guns up in the air."
At a rally in Salem, Oregon, Saturday in protest of a new state law requiring background checks on private gun sales, anti-government militia groups promised to defy the law and warned that it could lead to civil war.
“There is no unconstitutional law that can be passed that cannot be defied, resisted, evaded, smuggled in violation of and completely nullified by armed civil disobedience,” he told the crowd.
Waving a copy of a “fiscal impact report” on the Oregon law, he demanded, “What do you think the ‘fiscal impact’ of civil war is? Because when you send the raid parties to the doors of our homes, when you begin killing those of us who resist your raw appetite for power, that is what you’re going to get: civil war. And if it comes to our doors, what makes it think it won’t come to theirs?”
“If they ironically insist on civil war as the proper panacea for ‘gun violence,’” he warned, “then regardless of how reluctant we are, they will be shown after they kill the first of us what gun violence really is, as the founders showed King George.”
He told the crowd that they should start forming armed teams with likeminded citizens to fight threats ranging from drug cartels to government forces, a variation on the far-right Posse Comitatus theory: “Whether it’s the cartels or MS13 or the secret police, it takes a team to fight back.”
Noting that members of the Oath Keepers had come from across the country to resist the BLM at the Oregon mine, Rhodes warned that “there is a storm coming in this country” and “when it hits” people wouldn’t be able to drive across the country to “defend” others.
“No one is a passenger on the good ship liberty,” he said. “Everyone’s crew, everybody rows!”
