'Ex-Gay' Activist: Gays and Lesbians 'Acting Out' Like Drug Addicts, Alcoholics

“Ex-gay” activist Anne Paulk (ex-wife of ex-ex-gay activist John Paulk) joined Janet Parshall yesterday to discuss the “way out of homosexuality.” Paulk, who has previously claimed that the majority of lesbians were sexually abused as children, told Parshall that “the reason most people end up gay is because they’ve had some really broken experiences in their early childhood” and that they are “acting out in this way” in response to “sorrow and pain.”

This “expression of sin,” she added, is “really not that much different” than alcoholism, drug abuse and “relational addiction.”

I do believe that if the Church understood that it’s the outcome of pain and sorrow and interpersonal challenges, and it’s the product of personal confusion. And that’s what I used to talk on all the time in years prior, is you know what, the reason why most people end up gay is because they’ve had some really broken experiences in their early childhood. It’s just manifesting in this way. And the more you get to know about what’s underlying of homosexuality, the more you get to understand that they’re just a human being that’s been wounded. That’s a little boy who’s grown up, who’s been very desperately hurt and is acting out in this way. That’s still, that was once a little girl whose heart was broken and her body misused. And the outcome is sorrow and pain, and this is the expression of it.

And I think that’s the expression of sin altogether, and it’s our rebellion against God, our rebellion against -- what we believe we want our way to be. Homosexuality is, not unlike any other sin, it’s a shortcut to getting your own needs met, and it’s not a healthy shortcut. Drugs don’t solve the problem of trying to hide from one’s trouble. Hiding doesn’t work at all. Alcohol doesn’t work that way, relational addiction doesn’t work that way, promiscuity doesn’t solve anything. Same thing with homosexuality. And I think when people understand that they’re really not that much different, it’s just a different outworking of similar underlying issues, it helps a lot.

But, like Sandy Rios, who takes heart in the fact that gay people sometimes get their hearts broken, Paulk has hope for gays and lesbians. “Even people in the gay community will celebrate someone’s amazing marriage, like the prince and the princess of England,” she said, meaning that they are in fact capable of understanding “the big picture of beauty that God has in mind.”

Fischer: Unconfessed Sin Can Cause Physical Illness

Bryan Fischer began his radio program yesterday with a discussion of the Book of James regarding the power of prayer, which prompted him to explain that when praying for someone to be healed, it is important that the person who is sick to confess all of their sins because "unconfessed sin can lead to physical sickness."

"Concealed sin," Fischer said, "unconfessed sin, that can cause physical illness:"

Yoest: Royal Baby Coverage Proves Media's Pro-Choice Bias

Americans United for Life president Charmaine Yoest visited the Mike Huckabee Show today to discuss yesterday’s “March on the Media,” an event organized by the anti-choice group Live Action to protest a perceived pro-choice bias in the media.  Yoest told Huckabee that the media displayed a pro-choice bias in its coverage of the birth of Kate Middleton’s pregnancy, because they referred to the future prince as “the royal baby” rather than “the royal fetus.”

Rios Will 'Not Affirm' That Obama's A Muslim, Only That His Priorities Are 'Islam First and Homosexuality Probably Second'

The right-wing media has been paying especially close attention to the trial of Nidal Hasan, the Army psychologist accused of opening fire at Ft. Hood in 2009, killing 13 people. Some on the right have gone so far as to personally blame President Obama for the shooting, but the general line is that the administration is somehow going easy on Hasan by subjecting him in a trial that will likely result in the death penalty.

American Family Radio’s Sandy Rios devoted her program on Wednesday to the Hasan trial and what she alleges are President Obama’s radical Muslim sympathies. Stating up front that she is “committed to accuracy in what we say,” Rios said she would “not affirm” that the president himself is a Muslim, but did note, “I will dispute the fact that he is a follower of Jesus Christ, or he would not embrace and advance the immorality that he does.”

I know the Left is listening to this conversation and I don’t care, it’s not going to intimidate me one bit, but I am committed to accuracy in what we say. And first, Barack Obama being a Muslim: We know that he has recited the Muslim call to prayer beautifully to a New York Times reporter, it’s Nicholas Kristof I believe, and as I understand it, when you recite that prayer, you state it over and over, that’s actually, that is how you become a Muslim.

Now, he was registered as a Muslim in Indonesia when he was a kid, through his step-father who was a Muslim, and we know that many of his family members in Kenya are Muslim. But I think, you know, he claims he’s a Christian. I dispute that claim. I will dispute that. I will not affirm that he’s Muslim. I will dispute the fact that he is a follower of Jesus Christ, or he would not embrace and advance the immorality that he does.

Rios came back to the subject later in the program,  claiming that the president wrote in one of his books that if “he had to decide between the Muslim world and the West, he would choose the Muslim. He did actually write that. And I think he’s certainly shown that, in case after case.”

But her belief that the president’s real sympathies are with the Muslim world “hasn’t anything to do with race,” she added. In fact, she said, “I think many black voters were persuaded that he was elected to represent them” when really his true priorities are “Islam first and homosexuality probably second.”

We have a dangerous situation here. I think we would all acknowledge, we must acknowledge, that we are in a dangerous situation. We have a president that,  and in fact, as I recall, he actually penned in one of his books-- and those of you on the Left can check me out on this – that when it came to some sort of showdown or a final decision or something he had to decide between the Muslim world and the West, he would choose the Muslim, he would favor the Muslims. He did actually write that. And I think he’s certainly shown that, in case after case.

And so, that’s what we…I, many of us tried to say this when he was running for president, but many of the American people, most of them didn’t want to hear it, did not want to hear it. And I would just like to go on record as saying, this is the fruit of electing someone with the past that he has, being the person that he is, with the philosophies and persuasions that he has. This is the result of that.

And so, it hasn’t anything to do with race. And that’s probably part of the distressing thing too, is that I think many black voters were persuaded that he was elected to represent them when really his most, it seems to me, most passionate interest is – this even sounds bizarre -- but it’s advancing homosexuality, that has been a passion of his since he’s been in office, and advancing Islam. Islam first and homosexuality probably second. And as weird and strange as that sounds, that’s been his record.

Fischer: 'Russia Is Not Being Homophobic, It’s Homorealistic'

Russia recently enacted a reactionary anti-gay law banning the dissemination of "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations around minors."

So, of course, Bryan Fischer wholeheartedly supports it, as he explained to The Voice Of Russia yesterday:

VOR also spoke with Bryan Fischer, head of the American Family Association, who has a different view on the situation.

"Russia is not being homophobic, it’s homorealistic – the Russian government is trying to take the issue into consideration and establish public policy to contribute to public health, as this lifestyle is not be promoted, endorsed or granted special legal protection", the expert said, warning of high health risks linked to this lifestyle.

He cites the Center for Disease Control that has monitored the HIV epidemic since 1987 and determined that 61% of HIV-positive males had sexual contacts with other males.

"Homosexual behavior is just as risky as drug abuse," Fischer said.

"I think the Russian government is right to be concerned with propaganda on teenagers who are at the age of struggling through sexual identity issue and we should help to channel these urges in productive behavior. Heterosexuality is God’s design. Policies that encourage young people to think this are good ideas."

Though same-sex marriages are becoming common all across the world, it doesn’t mean that this idea is popular and everybody supports it, Fischer said.

"Homosexual behavior damages the body and soul. We love homosexuals enough to tell them the truth."

Rep. Broun: Immigration Law a Ploy to Doom America, 'Keep Democrats in Power for Perpetuity'

Georgia Republican congressman and Senate candidate Paul Broun has hardly hid his opposition to creating a new immigration policies. Back in June, for instance, he warned that immigration reform would “destroy our country” and “destroy our Constitution and limited government.”

Speaking with Steve Malzberg earlier this week, Broun repeated his warning that if the House GOP compromises at all on immigration, “America, economically, is doomed because we cannot afford to put these people on government largesse.”

By “these people,” Broun means formerly undocumented immigrations working toward citizenship, whom Broun claims Sen. Chuck Schumer, one of the authors of the Senate immigration bill, “wants to put on…federal welfare programs and federal largesse so that they vote for the Democrats and keep Democrats in power for perpetuity.”

“Anything that Chuck Schumer’s for, any freedom-loving American should be against,” Broun added.

Daubenmire: 'I'm Sick And Tired Of Being Sodomized By The Left'

Sometimes we come across things that really require no explanation ... or rather, they completely defy explanation.

And this new video from "Coach" Dave Daubenmire ranting that he is "sick and tired of being sodomized by the left" is one of those things.

"The worst part of it is," Daubenmire laments, "the left has sodomized men. I'm not talking about physically sodomizing them; I'm talking about stealing men's manhood.  Through what? Through ridicule and through name-calling and through court attacks. Men, godly men, Christian men are afraid to stand up and speak any more because why? They've been sodomized by the left and they've lost their manhood:"

Live Action Rally: Abortion Providers Just as Bad as the Taliban

Anti-choice activists gathered in front of ABC studios in Washington, D.C. today to draw attention to what they say is the “real” war on women.

The March on the Media rally claimed to be exposing the media’s supposed censorship of the realities of abortion and the lionization of pro-choice advocates like Wendy Davis. The rally was organized by Lila Rose, the president of Live Action, who previously equated the anti-choice movement with the abolitionist movement and the Revolutionary War.

Rose wasn’t alone in her questionable historical comparisons. Jill Stanek, an anti-choice activist who previously accused Obama of supporting infanticide while a member of the Illinois Senate, stole the show today by comparing abortion to the brutality of the Vietnam War, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the atrocities committed by the Taliban.
