Fischer: If America Doesn't Repent For Abortion, There Will Be A Second Civil War

On his radio broadcast today, Bryan Fischer responded to a caller who sobbed over the issue of legal abortion by warning that if the United States does not collectively repent for the sin of abortion and beg God's forgiveness, it will result in a second civil war.

"What I'm saying," Fischer explained, "is that if we do not, as a nation, come to the place of national repentance over the sin of abortion, there's going to be civil war again in this country; there is going to be anarchy, there is going to be unrest, there will be growing violence":

Paulk: Have A 'Healthy Detachment' From Your Gay Son

After hosting ex-gay activist Trace McNutt, Janet Parshall invited Anne Paulk to her show to discuss “healing and hope for those longing to leave the gay lifestyle behind.” Paulk is an ex-gay activist who was married to John Paulk, the poster boy of the ex-gay movement, until his recent announcement that he is in fact still gay and apology for his role pushing ex-gay therapy.

Neither Parshall nor Paulk mentioned her husband’s renunciation of the ex-gay movement during the program, but Paulk was more than happy to field questions from listeners about their gay family members.

One caller said that her 27-year-old son “has chosen to be in the homosexual lifestyle” and wanted to know what to do about it.

Paulk responded that the caller’s son is “rebelling against God” and that she should have a “healthy detachment” from him due to his “choices.”

“You can then love them like you would a friend who is going astray in different areas that are damaging to friend.”

“I think the key part is being winsome” when you tell your son you are going to have a “healthy detachment” from him, she continued. “Son, I love you and I disagree with where you’re going in your life and this is why.”

Hibbs: CA's Transgender Rights Bill Is 'The Most Dangerous Bit Of Legislation' In American History

Jim Garlow has begun hosting regular webcasts seeking to mobilize pastors in California on behalf of a petition drive that is seeking to repeal a California law that will allow students in the state to use whatever bathroom and participate on whichever sports team they believe matches their gender identity.

He hosted another one this week that featured Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage and Pastor Jack Hibbs in which Hibbs warned that God would judge the Body of Christ if it fails to rise up and repeal this legislation.

"This [bill] is an affront to God," Hibbs declared. "It's an affront to California's kids and those of you who are listening from across the nation, keep this in mind: what happens in California doesn't stay in California.  If this is allowed to become implemented on January first, it will eventually get to your state.  But, again, this is the most aggressive, the most dangerous bit of legislation against the child and against family than any other in the history of the United States. We've never seen a government pass such an insane bill as this":

Religious Right Activists Attack Jon Stewart For (Hypothetically) Discriminating Against Christians

Wendy Wright and Chelsen Vicari co-hosted Sandy Rios In The Morning this week, and used the opportunity to attack The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart for discriminating against Christians… in a hypothetical scenario that the two Religious Right activists invented.

Wright, the former head of Concerned Women for America who is now vice president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM), was upset about a Daily Show segment from 2005 that poked fun of the “Christian persecution complex,” noting Christianity’s ascendency in the West following the conversion of Constantine I. Wright said she couldn’t understand why Stewart thinks “we are in charge and we are the oppressors,” referring to the Crusades as an instance in which Christians faced persecution. “I guess he never heard of the Crusades; the Crusades were actually defensive against the Muslim hordes,” she said.

Yes, that’s right, she cited the Crusades as an example of anti-Christian persecution.

She also spoke to Vicari, who like Wright used to work for CWA but now is with the Institute on Religion and Democracy, about Stewart’s recent interview with Malala Yousafzai.

Vicari was upset because she imagined that while Stewart and President Obama lauded Yousafzai, they wouldn’t have done so if she was shot while defending the rights of Christians.

I couldn’t, I just couldn’t see why there was such a disconnect between the way Jon Stewart was treating Malala for something very admirable, a girl’s right to an education, but he couldn’t stand up for the right to believe in Jesus Christ,” she said. I had this thought, Wendy, I thought, you know if Malala Yousafzai was a Christian standing up for girls’ rights to believe in Jesus Christ, would we still know her name? Would she receive all this praise that she’s getting from the international community? From our national leaders? The president just invited her to the White House on Friday. Would Jon Stewart have had her on his show? The answer is probably not and I have to ask the question, why that is?

Of course, Vicari has no idea if Stewart would have interviewed a girl who survived a shooting over her defense of Christians’ freedom of religion, but nevertheless she maintained that Stewart hypothetically discriminated against Christians.

'Satanic Drag Queen' Turned Ex-Gay Hero Not Exactly Ex-Gay

Last month, the “ex-gay” organization Voice of the Voiceless awarded its “Courage Award” to Trace McNutt, a “satanic drag queen” turned ex-gay activist.

But during an interview with conservative radio host Janet Parshall, McNutt admitted he was not “healed” of his homosexuality (for example, he says he fell in love with the male bassist in his Christian rock band).

“We know God heals some and others he doesn’t,” he told Parshall. “For me, the thorn remains…. Not all homosexuals get delivered of the same-sex attraction.”

Like other ex-gay activists, McNutt shared a harrowing life story of drug abuse and family problems, which are depicted as typical the life of the average gay man. McNutt said he became a sex addict and slept with “up to thirty people a day” in order to “get that masculine bond that I never got.”

“Not only was I a sex addict, but I was a homosexual on top of it, almost felt like a double whammy, you know?”

Gallagher Urges GOP To Follow Lonegan's 'Winning Strategy' And Talk More About Abortion

National Organization for Marriage founder Maggie Gallagher has a curious op-ed in the Washington Post today in which she insists that Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli is behind in the polls because he isn’t talking enough about his opposition to reproductive rights.

Cuccinelli sure has what Gallagher calls “conservative credentials” on the issue of choice. For instance, when he was in the state legislature, he sponsored a “personhood” bill that would have banned abortions in all circumstances and even criminalized some common forms of birth control. Cuccinelli has, understandably, been trying to run from this record in his effort to win over more moderate voters. But this, Gallagher argues, is what’s hurting him:

There is still time for Cuccinelli to turn things around, but the fact that someone with his conservative credentials speaks this way underscores that there is a conventional wisdom about how candidates ought to address, or avoid, social issues during campaigns. And Cuccinelli’s standing in the race underscores that this approach is dangerous for the GOP.

The truce strategy demoralizes the GOP base and makes it hard for the grass roots to care about Republican candidates. Conservative candidates are advised to deflect or retreat when social issues are raised, and their refusal to speak clearly and hold the line allows Democratic candidates to adopt more extreme positions, energizing their own base and unleashing a flood of money at no political cost. Democrats are confident that their opponents will not make an issue of their positions. Republican candidates’ apparent discomfort discussing such issues makes it look like they have something to hide, confirming to many voters Democratic suggestions that GOP candidates’ positions are extreme.

On an issue such as abortion, about which Americans are fundamentally ambivalent, victory depends on how “pro-life” and “pro-choice” are defined. Republicans’ self-imposed silence allows Democrats to define pro-life in ways that help them politically. Thus, Democrats do not have to justify their positions on infanticide, late-term abortions or permitting unborn baby girls to be killed just because of their gender.

Gallagher suggests that Cuccinelli instead follow the “winning strategy” of New Jersey Senate candidate Steve Lonegan, who enthusiastically attacked Democrat Cory Booker for his pro-choice record…before Booker beat him handily in the general election.

Democrats campaigned on the truce strategy in 2012 and will continue to use it until GOP candidates come up with a more effective political response. The winning strategy would be to aggressively define social issues on Democrats’ weakest grounds, to make them pay for their unqualified support of abortion on any grounds.

Steve Lonegan, the New Jersey Republican whose long-shot Senate campaign stalled when he supported the government shutdown in a blue state, nonetheless had the right idea on this issue. “What abortion would you make illegal?” he asked Cory Booker in a recent debate.

Memo to GOP candidates: The best defense is a good offense. When you are being relentlessly attacked as an abortion extremist by people who support late-term and/or taxpayer-funded abortions, self-imposed silence about your beliefs and values is not an effective political response. Calling Democrats on their own extremism is the pathway to victory.

Barber: ENDA And Hate Crimes Laws Will Be Used To Protect Pedophiles

Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel appeared this week on Sandy Rios In The Morning, where he told guest host Wendy Wright that hate crimes laws and the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA) will be used to protect pedophiles:

When you have laws like ENDA, the Employment Nondiscrimination Act, being pushed, hate crimes legislation, that are as you point out so well Wendy, that are very vague in their definition of what is sexual orientation, we will arrive at the point where you know these people who define their sexual orientation by a sexual attraction to children want to be lumped in among those who cannot be discriminated against based upon their sexual orientation.

Religious Right activists have regularly employed such bizarre arguments against ENDA and hate crimes laws. Naturally, they can’t point to a single case where a state job discrimination law or a state or federal hate crimes statute was used to protect a child predator.

Nugent: Obama Like A Crack Addict

Ted Nugent compared President Obama to a crack addict and an alcoholic during an interview yesterday with conservative radio host Lars Larson. After attacking Obama for “violating his oath, violating the basics of America, the basics of ‘We The People,’” the NRA board member said Obama reminds him of a “criminal son or daughter asking for more allowance so they can buy more crack.”

“Their spending ways can only be described as a drunken idiot, the waste, the corruption, the fraud, the deceit, the abuse of power, it breaks my heart.”

Rafael Cruz: The Media Is America's 'Ministry Of Misinformation'

Glenn Beck spent the first half of last night's television program freaking out about something called The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture, which he claimed was going to become an American equivalent of the Nazi regime's Ministry of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment, before bringing on Rafael Cruz, the father of Sen. Ted Cruz, to discuss what could be done to defeat this effort to permanently rewrite America's history.

Cruz told Beck that "it almost seemed like I was listening to what was happening in Cuba during Castro," saying it sounded just like "a ministry of misinformation that you have in all the communist countries." In fact, Cruz said, there already is a Ministry of Misinformation in America and it is called the liberal media, which has an evil agenda that seeks to destroy "what this country is all about."

Cruz then went on to trot out the false claim that President Obama omits the phrase "by the creator" when quoting the Declaration of Independence , saying that he does so "because socialism, Marxism requires that government become your god":

Boykin: Obama Creating A 'Marxist Nation'

During an interview this week with the American Family Association’s Fred Jackson, Family Research Council vice president Jerry Boykin reiterated his claim that President Obama is using the military to introduce communism.

Boykin said there is “no question” that the White House is to blame for the supposed “persecution of Christians” in the military, which he said is all part of an effort to create “a society moving to Marxism.”

“This is the Marxist model, if you go back to what Karl Marx said, he said my objective is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism, he also said religion is the opiate of the masses,” Boykin continued, “because we are moving through the socialist agenda to really becoming a Marxist nation, you have to destroy the idea or concept of unalienable rights, which is what we were founded upon, our rights come from God, not from man, not from government.”
