Tony Perkins Says Gay Rights Advocates Want Anti-Christian Holocaust, Will 'Start Rolling Out The Boxcars'

After Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission unanimously upheld a judge’s finding that a baker unlawfully discriminated against gay customers, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins invited the baker’s attorney, Nicolle Martin of Alliance Defending Freedom, to discuss the case yesterday on “Washington Watch.”

Perkins reacted to the discrimination case by offering a comparison to the Holocaust: “I’m beginning to think, are re-education camps next? When are they going to start rolling out the boxcars to start hauling off Christians?”

“I guarantee that we are going to continue to see the witch hunt,” Martin said.

Gordon Klingenschmitt's Interesting Defense Of Tax Exemption For Clergy & Churches

Under current tax law, members of the clergy are entitled to receive a housing allowance upon which they are not required to pay taxes. This so called "parsonage allowance" allows clergy members to receive thousands of dollars per year from their church to be used to pay for their housing but this money is not classified as part of their salary and is thus exempt from taxation.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has filed suit over this practice, arguing that churches and clergy are receiving special treatment that is not available to other non-profit institutions and Gordon Klingenschmitt, not surprisingly, is vehemently opposed to FFRF's effort to end this exemption, arguing on his "Pray In Jesus Name" program today that it is not fair to make members of the clergy "pay extra taxes" by ending this practice.

As Klingenschmitt sees it, no churches should be required to pay taxes because the donations it receives have already been taxed once when the money was first earned by the people who donated it.

"Everyone who goes to church and has a job," he explained, "already paid their taxes back home on their income and then they gave whatever was left over to the church. So should the church then have to pay taxes on top of that?"

By the same token, Klingenschmitt says, a pastor who receives thousands of dollars from the church to pay for housing should also not be required to pay taxes on that money because the pastor has already paid taxes on his or her salary.

"Because [the housing allowance] is still funded by the church, it should not be double taxed," Klingenschmitt argued, "since the pastor already paid his income taxes as an employee of the church ... That doesn't mean he ought to pay extra taxes for the simple fact of living in a church-owned or church-rented property":

Of course, the entire point is that most people pay taxes on their salary and then have to use that salary to pay for their housing, but members of the clergy receive a salary on which they pay taxes and then thousands of dollars in the form of a housing allowance upon which they don't.  But to Klingenschmitt, not giving clergy members this tax-free allowance amounts to double taxation.

Gina Miller Asks God To 'Stop Barack Obama' Before He Destroys America

Religious Right pundit Gina Miller writes in BarbWire today that President Obama is “a lawless enemy of the United States” and “part of God’s judgment on us.”

Before likening Obama to Adolf Hitler, Miller calls on God to stop the president: “Who will stop Barack Obama? Can he be stopped? I don’t believe he can, unless the Lord Himself stops him.”

How can anyone not see that Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is an enemy of the United States? Many of us have been saying this for years now, because the signs are evident that this man does not like America and is actively working to tear down our constitutional foundations, our freedoms, our military, our energy sector, our borders, our medical and health insurance systems and American way of life. He has broken our laws and spit on the limits of his power at every turn, and yet the despicable media and his fellow-traveling, commie Democrats have spun and lied, “justifying” almost everything he and his administration have done. Where are the Republicans? I believe they are scared to death of him (those who aren’t leftist globalists themselves, anyway).



The American people understand that what Obama did is a purely evil, illegal thing, unleashing remorseless murderers on the world, while rescuing a likely Army deserter. What the American people understand is that Obama is a lawless enemy of the United States who deserves impeachment and removal from office, at the very least. With his treasonous actions, he is a clear and present danger to this nation and its people. He is a liar through and through, and although he may not understand how deeply he is hated by most of the American people, I’m certain he couldn’t care less about it.



Who will stop Barack Obama? Can he be stopped? I don’t believe he can, unless the Lord Himself stops him.

On the epigraph page before the Foreword of William Shirer’s 1959 book, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, is a quote from Field Marshal Walther von Brauchitsch, Commander in Chief of the German Army from 1938 to 1941:

Hitler was the fate of Germany and this fate could not be stayed.

I believe the same is true of Barack Hussein Obama and the United States of America. The hideous departure of American society from a right and true moral foundation based on God’s precepts has brought us to where we are today, with social ills abounding. The explosion of sin in America, the cultivation of a piggish, indolent entitlement mentality, the embrace of violence-as-entertainment, the bloody ocean of baby-killing, the aggressive celebration of sodomy and the disdain for Christian wisdom and moderation have earned us God’s judgment on this cancerous nation. Obama and the many other thoroughly corrupt leaders are part of God’s judgment on us. We brought this on ourselves.

Dark and darker days are ahead.

Matt Barber Praises Slovakia For Resisting 'Demonic' Marriage Equality

As RWW and others have documented, American Religious Right figures are part of a global anti-equality movement.  Groups like the American Center for Law and Justice, National Organization for Marriage and World Congress of Families are working with right-wing movements in Europe to resist advances in LGBT Equality.

Today, Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel praises this week’s passage of an anti-marriage-equality constitutional amendment in Slovakia, where there is no legal recognition of same-sex civil unions.

While the U.S. seems bound and determined to destroy natural marriage and family, other nations around the world have figured out that radically deconstructing these fundamental cornerstone institutions – institutions necessary to the survival of any healthy society – will have devastating effects in the long-term.

Slovakia is the latest such nation. Lawmakers there have constitutionally banned counterfeit “same-sex marriage.”

...Let’s pray that this pro-family trend across the world continues. As the radical “LGBT” agenda continues to weaken America, obliterate religious liberty and hurt and confuse countless children and families, we can at least take solace in the fact that much of the world has not been duped by this demonic incursion of sexual anarchy.

 

Right Wing Round-Up - 6/5/14

Right Wing Bonus Tracks - 6/5/14

  • This is the actual title of a Washington Times editorial: "Taxpayers to pay for tranny grannies."
  • Deacon Keith Fournier thinks that "maybe Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty should run for president."
  • James Robison says "you can kiss freedom in America goodbye unless those who say they know and love God stand together against the forces of deception and destruction."
  • Tony Perkins and Rafael Cruz are going to be honored at Vision America's "Heroes Of Faith Gala."
  • Jerry Boykin has already concluded that Bowe Bergdahl "needs to spend the rest of his life in prison at a minimum.”
  • Finally, Bryan Fischer explains, once again, "why President Obama is a fascist."

Bryan Fischer Can't Seem To Keep His Story Straight

On his radio program today, Bryan Fischer said that while he has great respect for Ben Carson, he is not sure that Carson has the toughness needed to withstand the relentless onslaught of attacks and lies he will face if he decides to run for president.

And Fischer was speaking from experience, he said, "because virtually everything I say that the Left gets hold of they twist, they distort it, they try to create the impression that I have said something different from what I have said." This has become so routine that Fischer doesn't even bother trying to correct the record any more since people on the Left "don't care if they have misrepresented you, misconstrued what you've said; they're doing that intentionally, that's what they want to do because they want to take what do and twist it and turn it in a way to make you look as bad as humanly possible."

This comes as news to us, especially since probably 99% of the video clips featuring Fischer were first posted on this blog which, on multiple occasions, Fischer has praised for helping him to "get the word out" by posting clips that feature "exactly the soundbite that I want them to use":

Of course, by posting these clips of him saying two diametrically opposed things, we are probably guilty of creating the impression that Fischer has said something different from what he said.

Religious Right's Persecution Narrative Gains Traction, Even As Most Americans Oppose Them On Policy

Polling released this week by the Public Religion Research Institute underscores the success that the Right has had in pushing its religious persecution narrative, even as majorities of Americans support the policies that the Right claims are threatening religious liberty.

PRRI finds that a “majority (54%) of Americans believe that the right of religious liberty is being threatened in America today,” including 80 percent of Republicans and 83 percent of white evangelical Protestants.

But at the same time, large majorities support the very policies that the Right is claiming are persecuting people of faith, including the Affordable Care Act’s contraception coverage mandate and LGBT nondiscrimination policies.

PRRI found that 61 percent of Americans believe that publicly-held corporations should “be required to provide their employees with health insurance that includes contraception at no cost” and that smaller majorities support the same requirement for privately-held corporations, small businesses, and even religiously-affiliated institutions.

What’s more, PRRI reports that “Americans overwhelming reject the notion that small business owners should be allowed to refuse to provide services or goods to individuals because they are gay or lesbian, atheist, Jewish or black, even if doing so would violate the owners’ religious beliefs.”

Only 16 percent wanted to allow small businesses to refuse services to gays and lesbians, only slightly more than the 10 percent who still think businesses should be allowed to refuse service to black people because of their race.

The results of PRRI’s research show the enormous success that the Religious Right is having in building its narrative of religious persecution, even as the public opposes its actual policy goals.

Tea Party Nation Tells Members It Is Time To 'Impeach And Arrest The Tyrant King Obama'

Tea Party Nation today emailed members a petition called “IMPEACH AND ARREST THE TYRANT KING OBAMA!!,” which is about as over-the-top as you would expect it to be.

The time has come to DEMAND the IMMEDIATE ARREST and PROSECUTION of one BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA upon his willful and transgression of 18 U.S. Code § 2339A.

I hereby call on all members of the house and the senate to begin impeachment proceeding against Barack Hussein Obama and for Andrew B. “Drew” Willison, the current Senate Seargent [sic] at Arms to issue and execute an arrest warrant, taking the president, Barack Hussein Obama into custody.

Barack Hussein Obama is in direct violation of 18 U.S. Code § 2339A – Providing material support to terroristsas a result of the removal of five Taliban GITMO detained terrorists and the transfer OF them to the government of Qatar where they, according to the specified arrangement negotiated BY Obama that they only be keep from traveling for a period of one year.

The petition goes on to say that Obama “should face a minimum of 15 years” in prison.

Tom DeLay Wants House Investigation Into Obama's 'Connections To Radical Islamists,' Suggests Impeachment

Yesterday, ex-House GOP leader Tom DeLay, who is still in court fighting convictions for money laundering and conspiracy, accused President Obama of breaking the law with his deal to release Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

“This president is undermining the rule of law and the judiciary committee ought to start hearings on it,” DeLay said on his Washington Times radio program, adding that the House may also consider impeaching Obama to serve as a “warning to future presidents” about “undermining the rule of law.”

He also called for a House investigation into Obama’s purported “connections to radical Islamists” and his “leaning and having too much sympathy for radical Islamists.”

DeLay follows in the footsteps of Oliver North, a commentator who also may not have been in the best position to accuse the president of committing a crime.
