Only Fifteen 'Ex-Gay Activists' Show Up For 'Ex-Gay Awareness Month' Lobby Day

Despite claims that “there are more ex-gay people in the world than there are gay people in the world” and that there are “thousands of ex-gays” ready to march on Washington and make their voices heard, ex-gay gatherings always seem to assemble just a small handful of people. And it’s always the exact same people.

Ex-Gay Awareness Month, which immediately followed the disastrous Ex-Gay Pride Month lobby day, managed to muster “about 15 ex-gay activists to lobby Capitol Hill” yesterday.

Seeing that Congress was in the midst of a battle over the government shutdown and the debt ceiling, ex-gay activists may have wished they chose a different day to come to Washington.

While organizers denied Right Wing Watch’s registration to the dinner focused on getting more attention for stories from ex-gays, the conservative outlet WORLD was allowed into the event, and reported that activists vowed to go on the offensive:

Greg Quinlan, president of PFOX, led a group of about 15 ex-gay activists to lobby on Capitol Hill earlier in the day. “In order to win the culture war on homosexuality, it’s going to take ex-gays telling their stories,” Quinlan said during fiery remarks that prompted a standing ovation.

Bishop Harry Jackson, pastor of Hope Christian Church in Washington, finished the evening with a keynote address urging former homosexuals not to back down and let the naysayers stop them from fulfilling their God-given potential.



“Gay activists have actually paved the way for us,” said Christopher Doyle, president of Voice of the Voiceless. “We need to scream and yell for equality and justice for all. We can no longer afford to be on the defensive.”

Gingrich: Obama To Blame For Shutdown Because He 'Refuses To Behave Like An American President'

Newt Gingrich simply loves suggesting that President Obama isn’t a real American. He took that message today to the 700 Club, where he said that Obama’s lack of American-ness — not House Republicans — is what’s to blame for the government shutdown. In an interview with Pat Robertson, Gingrich alleged that by rebuffing the House’s ridiculous list of demands, Obama is undermining “the core things that protects us from dictatorship.”

“The big problem is that President Obama refuses to behave like an American president,” Gingrich said. “This President puts himself above the Constitution and that’s very dangerous for our freedoms.”

Perkins: Pray For Gay People Just As You Would For Drug Addicts

Tony Perkins frequently tries to rebut the notion that he is anti-gay by showing how much he loves gay people by equating them with drug addicts and alcoholics, and Friday’s edition of Washington Watch was no different. The Family Research Council president asked listeners to pray for gay people just as they would for someone who abuses drugs or is cheating on a spouse.

“Here’s the telling thing about speaking to this issue of homosexuality and I think we got to be very, very careful here,” Perkins said. “First off we need to be praying for those who are bound up in these lifestyles whether it is homosexuality, whether it is drugs, whatever it might be, anything that is outside the design of God for mankind, it could be adulterous relationships, it doesn’t matter.”

“Our goal in speaking about human sexuality is not to win an argument but it is to point people to life, the abundant life.”

Christian Post Blogger Claims 'Demonic Dream' Of Homosexuality And Evolution Furthering The Last Days

Michael Bresciani is out with yet another column on how Satan is using President Obama and the LGBT community to usher in the Antichrist, this time in the Christian Post, the online outlet led by Richard Land.

In “America: While You Slept an Enemy Came,” Bresciani contends that the demonic “gay agenda” is a fulfillment of “last days prophecies.”

“According to the prophetic, it is most assuredly the father of demons who is providing the force, the impetus and the inspiration for the last days slide into religious, civil and general apostasy,” Bresciani writes, adding that “President, politicians, secular educators, LGBT, atheists, and a plethora of individuals like Dawkins, Hawking and others” are “spreading the antichrist doctrine all over the world.”

Marriage equality and evolution, he warns, are both part of the “demonic dream of the degenerate minds of the day at the helm.”

In another Christian Post commentary, Bresciani suggests that Pope Francis has “taken his first steps into the last day’s “apostasy” falling away.”

Millions of Americans now want the gay agenda to be fully accepted. Millions more stand for the murder and genocide of the unborn while hiding behind phrases like, “it’s the law of the land.” Hollywood minions spew the sex and violence on our senses as if it were the gospel. The enemies of the gospel and of Christ are emerging from the woodwork to undertake their tour de force as if they were summoned by the great father of demons himself.

Last days prophecies are being fulfilled right before our eyes and only the dullest of mind have not been able to see it unfolding. Even fewer, can explain why it is happening. Yet, it is totally uncomplicated. According to the prophetic, it is most assuredly the father of demons who is providing the force, the impetus and the inspiration for the last days slide into religious, civil and general apostasy.



Who are these sowers, who seem bent on spreading the antichrist doctrine all over the world?

The list is enormous.

President, politicians, secular educators, LGBT, atheists, and a plethora of individuals like Dawkins, Hawking and others are the representatives of the new secular gospel where men arrived in today’s prideful generation by means of a Darwinian fiat that took a mere 60 billion or so years and are now heading to the stars at warp nine. (Thanks to the imagination of one, Gene Rodenberry) With both these pipe dreams as a foundation and the demonic dream of the degenerate minds of the day at the helm – hell can’t be far away.

Whether it’s the President’s announcement of his ‘evolved’ view of marriage or the unproven evolutionary tripe some professor is pumping into the heads of college freshmen – the sowers will not escape.

Glenn Beck Vows To Camp Outside Of Louie Gohmert's House Until He Agrees To Run For US Senate

Last week, Glenn Beck became very excited over the idea that Congressman Louie Gohmert would launch a primary challenge against Republican Senator John Cornyn in Texas and today he announced on his radio program that he will be camping outside of Gohmert's house if necessary in order to make his fantasy come true.

"Last night, I made up my mind," Beck declared. "I am going to camp outside of Louie Gohmert's house if I have to, and I mean it.  I am going to be Louie Gohmert's worst nightmare until he says 'yes, I'm going to run for Senate."

Beck went on to call upon his listening audience to take over the various government institutions in their respective hometowns in order to "make sure there is not a single progressive that is running our towns, there's not a single progressive on our city councils, there's not a single progressive in our school boards ... Zero tolerance!"

Catholic League: De Blasio Should 'Honeymoon In North Korea,' Reveal Supposed Atheism

Bill Donohue of the Catholic League is out today with a column in Newsmax attacking Bill de Blasio, the New York Democratic mayoral nominee, for his role in a group founded by a Catholic league.

While Donohue would typically go after anyone over anything critical they say about the Catholic Church, he lambastes de Blasio for working for the Jesuit Quixote Center in the 1980s. Donohue claims de Blasio should have mentioned “his extremist associations on his website” and admit that he is an atheist Marxist.

“Given de Blasio's insensitivity to Catholic concerns, it is not unfair to at least probe his religious affiliation,” Donohue writes. “If he is an atheist — his Latin-American dictatorial buddies surely are — we would like to know.”

“If he wins, maybe he'll honeymoon in North Korea. They would surely welcome him.”

Donohue added that Catholic voters should be wary about de Blasio because he opposes censorship of “anti-Catholic” art and the ban on gays marching in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Manhattan.

He may be the next mayor of the city of New York. Only recently have we learned who Bill de Blasio is (no one really cared much about him when he was the city's public advocate, an undefined made-out-of-whole-cloth job). Now that we have learned some important matters about his life, we are left with even more questions.

We know that his early political career was Marxist, and not just in an academic sense. He raised money for the Sandinistas, visited Nicaragua to align himself with the tyrants, and worked to undermine the efforts of the Reagan administration. No wonder he was endorsed by George Soros in August. Curiously, he decided to cover up his radical past: There is no mention of his extremist associations on his website.



Catholics should be especially wary of de Blasio. In November 2000, he took over as campaign manager for Hillary Clinton; she was running for the U.S. Senate seat in New York. The month before, the Brooklyn Museum of Art hosted a vile anti-Catholic exhibit that featured elephant dung smeared on a portrait of the Virgin Mary; pornographic pictures also adorned the "art."

Her rival, New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (he would later drop out for health reasons), stood with the Catholic League; he even pledged to pull public funding to the museum (Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota, who worked for Giuliani, also took this position). Clinton sided with the museum, endearing herself to the artistic community. In fact, it took her quite a while before she even said anything negative about the exhibit. Not unexpectedly, de Blasio went along.



Over the past decade, some New York public officials have decided not to march in the St. Patrick's Day Parade because, they say, homosexuals are barred from marching. De Blasio is one of them. The claim is based on an out-and-out lie: Gays have never been banned from marching. What the parade officials insist on is that all contingents honor St. Patrick — they are not allowed to have their own floats and banners honoring their own cause. This is why pro-life Catholics are banned from marching under their own banner. As New York's Public Advocate, de Blasio decided he would rather show his solidarity with gays before siding with Irish Catholics.

Given de Blasio's insensitivity to Catholic concerns, it is not unfair to at least probe his religious affiliation. No one seems to know. We called his office and emailed his staff, but to no avail. If he is an atheist — his Latin-American dictatorial buddies surely are — we would like to know.

There is one Catholic connection that de Blasio has, and it is not one that any practicing Catholic would want to be associated with. In the 1980s, he was employed by the Quixote Center, a fringe group of Catholics so radical that they were investigated by the Treasury Department for smuggling guns to their Sandinista friends. Indeed, the Quixote Center was also the subject of probes by the IRS and the U.S. Customs Service at this time. This is the same group of zealots who defended the cop-killing racist Mumia Abu-Jamal, the former Black Panther who became a hero to left-wing extremists.

The Quixote Center is hardly a model Catholic outfit. Its "We Are the Church" campaigns have all sought to upend the teachings of the Catholic Church. All of their efforts have failed. No matter, this is the kind of Catholic organization that excites de Blasio, ones that reject the moral teachings of the Catholic Church.

When "Occupy Wall Street" protesters took over Zuccotti Park, trashing the area, raping women, ripping off the homeless, defecating in the street, and taunting the police, there was no bigger fan in New York City than Bill de Blasio, aka Warren Wilhelm, Jr., aka Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm. If he wins, maybe he'll honeymoon in North Korea. They would surely welcome him.

Anti-Muslim Author Thinks Obama Is Creating An Islamic Dictatorship, Fomenting Syrian-Style Civil War

Yesterday, Janet Mefferd invited Michael Coffman onto her program to discuss his book, Radical Islam in the House, about how an “Islamist cancer” has “penetrated deeply into the federal government and our culture” in order “to create a global Caliphate or world government.”

Coffman told Mefferd that President Obama might become a dictator and refuse to give up power in order to transform the US into an Islamic state. Once Americans begin fighting back against the dictatorship by the country’s 0.8 percent Muslim population, Coffman predicts that the US will experience a second Civil War that is much like the one taking place in Syria.

He said the Obama administration is building such close ties to “radical Islamists” that they can’t be overturned by the next administration “no matter who is the next president, if we have another president.”

“Actually the Islamists believe that by the end of the Obama administration they will have an Islamic nation here in the United States, they believe very confidently that they will have succeeded within these next three and a half years to make this an Islamist state.”

“The next president, assuming we can get there, is probably going to shut the whole thing down and stop it,” Coffman said of the supposed Islamist takeover. “I think it’s going to become so apparent by that time that it’s going to be almost impossible for them to be able to implement it without going to a civil war type of thing like they do so often like it’s happening in Syria and so forth right now.”

“I don’t think the American people fully understood what they were voting for when they returned Obama back to his second term,” Coffman lamented. “It’s really opened up the United States to so many different things that could destroy us, literally destroy us in the next four years.”

Coffman further alleged that President Obama is sympathetic to radical Islam because his worldview contains only “a little bit of Christianity, just about five percent, not much more than that, and a whole lot of Islam in his background that he has now staked his corner on because there is so much overlap between progressivism and Islam.”

“Not only is Islam diametrically opposed to [Christian precepts] but so is progressivism, but when you have those two things diametrically opposed to what this nation was founded on and what made it such a great nation, you have a tiger forced out and it has to be forced out, it just has to be.”

Ted Cruz's Dad Cites Manipulated Obama Quote, Bogus Health Care Claim In Incendiary Speech

In a speech Friday, Rafael Cruz, Religious Right activist and father of Sen. Ted Cruz, cited a fake quote from The Audacity of Hope to suggest that President Obama is a Muslim.

In audio obtained by ColoradoPols.com, the elder Cruz told the Adams County Republican Party, “Barack Obama said: If the winds shift, I will side with the Muslims.” When an audience member shouted, “He is Muslim!,” Cruz seemed to agree and replied: “McCain couldn’t say that, because it’s not politically correct. It is time to stop being politically correct!”

The quote of Obama saying he will “side with the Muslims” has been making the rounds on right-wing chain emails. The myth-busting website Snopes.com found that the line is a “rewording of a passage” from his book regarding “the importance of not allowing inflamed public opinion to result in innocent members of immigrant groups being stripped of their rights” and “contains no specific mention of ‘Muslims.’”

In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific reassurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

Cruz also repeated the thoroughly debunked claim that Obamacare will require people to have “end-of-life counseling” every five years, which he refers to as “suicide counseling.” PolitiFact called the charge an “outright distortion” of a provision that would have allowed Medicare to “cover the cost of end-of-life counseling sessions,” which are optional, and to “cover one session every five years.” The sessions would not have been mandatory and would not have “encourage[d] patients to end their lives.”

But even that provision isn’t currently law: It was dropped from the final bill thanks to far-right conspiracy theories.

Cruz went on to call the majority of Republican Senators “RINOs” for not supporting his son on a cloture vote for a government funding bill.
