Staver: With DOMA Ruling, 'We're Crossing Into The Realm Of Revolution'

Last year, Mat Staver warned that if the Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality, it could lead to a civil war. And now that the Court has done that by striking down part of the Defense of Marriage Act, Staver is once again issuing that same warning. 

Saying that the DOMA decision is actually worse than Roe v. Wade because that decision never forced anyone to get an abortion whereas now Christians are being forced to capitulate and accept gay marriage as legitimate under fear of persecution, Staver claimed that the nation is "crossing into the realm of rebellion, we're crossing into the realm of revolution" just like the nation faced heading into the American Revolution:

Keyes: Case for Gay Marriage Same as the Case for Slavery

Alan Keyes believes that Justice Antonin Scalia didn’t go far enough in his dissent in Windsor, the decision which struck down a key component of the Defense of Marriage Act, maintaining that he should’ve argued that gay marriage, which Keyes called a “tyrannically defined fabrication,” is unconstitutional.

According to Keyes, gay marriage advocates are using the same line of reasoning of slavery proponents who argued that “the notion of unalienable rights did not apply to black people” and did so “by denying black people their share in human nature.” “In like fashion, the advocates of homosexual so-called marriage now seek to deny the nature of marriage” and “override right and justice as endowed by the Creator.” Since same-sex unions violate God’s laws, Keyes reasons, it is therefore unconstitutional and allow government to undermine unalienable rights.

The advocates of slavery in the United States often attempted to justify that institution by denying black people their share in human nature. On this account, they pretended that the notion of unalienable rights did not apply to black people, and that they therefore had no rights government was obliged to respect and secure. In like fashion, the advocates of homosexual so-called marriage now seek to deny the nature of marriage. They do so on the excuse of promoting equal treatment for homosexuals. But the necessary and intended result of their advocacy is to deny the family's functional claim to be an expression of human nature, indeed the primordial expression of its social aspect. This, in turn, allows them to deny that the individuals who make up the family are engaged in an exercise of right, according to the laws of nature and of nature's God. Once this is successfully denied, the activities arising from their exercise of right need no longer be respected as unalienable rights, antecedent to all human governments, which it is government's aim to secure.

In what amounts to an effort to overturn the whole idea of unalienable rights that gives rise to constitutional self-government, some elements of America's judiciary have moved to proclaim as law that marriage must be redefined in a way that accommodates homosexual relationships. But this means that a human relationship in no way rooted in the Creator's provision for our nature must be allowed to usurp the name, authority, and rights of the God-endowed institution.



Once this effect upon the unalienable rights of the natural family is understood, it becomes clear that the Constitution is not neutral with respect to the approval or disapproval of same-sex marriage, in the name of law. There is an explicit constitutional prohibition against denying or disparaging rights unenumerated in the Constitution but retained by the people. Since the unalienable rights of the family arise from the individual's commitment to fulfill the natural law by propagating humanity, they are certainly among these unenumerated rights. Therefore, Congress simply did its duty, in accordance with the 9th Amendment, when it moved to prevent the denial and disparagement of the rights of the natural family by judges and justices seeking to replace the natural family with a tyrannically defined fabrication.

Why did Justice Scalia fail to take note of this constitutional justification for DOMA, utterly ignored by the Windsor majority? Why, instead, did he pretend that the issue involved can simply be decided by majority vote of the people in their respective states, as if the human sovereignty that constitutes government, at any level, has authority to override right and justice as endowed by the Creator? In this respect, neither the Windsor majority nor Justice Scalia's dissent shows any respect for the premises that informed the deliberations of the Framers of the U.S. Constitution. Yet without those premises, the declared purposes and essential features of the constitution they devised cannot be properly understood.

Klingenschmitt: Justice Kennedy's DOMA Decision Is 'Blasphemy'

"Dr. Chaps" Gordon Klingenschmitt is predictably dismayed by the Supreme Court decision, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, striking down a key section of the Defense of Marriage Act, declaring that in striking down the legislation, the Court majority has ruled that Christians are evil.

Asserting that Jesus was inside the hearts of those in Congress who passed DOMA (and the Holy Spirit was inside President Bill Clinton when he signed it,) Klingenschmitt said that with this ruling, Kennedy looked into the hearts of those responsible for this law and declared that they had "an evil motive." 

"He's looking at Jesus in us and calling him evil," Klingenschmitt fumed. "He's looking at the Holy Spirit in us and calling it a demon.  Justice Kennedy, you are full of blasphemy":

Kuhner: 'Homosexual Agenda Is Cultural Marxism' and A War on 'Human Nature'

Jeffrey Kuhner, the very anti-gay Washington Times columnist, is out with yet another screed targeting gays and lesbians, this time charging that the “homosexual movement” is leading “a war on religion and, ultimately, human nature itself.”

After insisting that Lady Gaga insulted veterans by “defam[ing] the national anthem,” Kuhner asserts that “aggressively promiscuous” gays and lesbians seek to “indoctrinate the youth” with the goal of turning the US into “Sodom and Gomorrah.”

“The homosexual agenda is cultural Marxism,” he writes. “Same-sex marriage is not just wrong. It goes against nature, morality and God.”

The homosexual movement is transforming America. A great cultural change has taken place. The homosexual lifestyle — once considered a moral abomination — is today not only accepted, but celebrated. The results are obvious and pernicious: The creation of a militant secular America bent on eradicating our Judeo-Christian heritage. It marks the final frontier of liberalism — a war on religion and, ultimately, human nature itself.

Recently, pop star Lady Gaga sang the national anthem at a Gay Pride event in New York City. Holding a rainbow flag, she blurted out: “O say does that star-spangled flag of pride yet wave,” and then substituted “land of the free, and the home of the gay.” She did more than defame the national anthem, insulting everyone who has ever fought or died for our country. Her words embodied America’s new MTV morality. The Stars and Stripes are out; the rainbow flag’s sexual permissiveness is in.

It is not only Lady Gaga. Our popular culture is inundated with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender agenda. Hollywood, television, academia, public schools, the arts, professional sports, many mainline churches, the media and the Democratic Party — all peddle the supposed virtues of “tolerance,” “diversity” and homosexual “marriage.”

Even “Sesame Street” is about to get in on the act. The latest cover on The New Yorker magazine depicts Bert and Ernie cuddling together on the couch. The puppets are watching members of the Supreme Court strike down the Defense of Marriage Act, thereby granting federal benefits to homosexual couples. The implication is clear: It’s time for Bert and Ernie to come out of the closet, and reveal their long-standing homosexual love affair. Leave aside that puppets aren’t real people. Hence, they can’t have sex. Why should 5-year-olds be confronted with such disturbing issues such as homosexuality, same-sex marriage and sodomy, which are grossly inappropriate for their age?

The reason is simple: The goal of secular progressives is to indoctrinate the youth. This is why public schools — even at the elementary level — are pushing the homosexual agenda. Same-sex “marriage” is not — and never has been — about expanding the benefits of marital unions. Most homosexuals, especially young males, are not interested in getting married. They are aggressively promiscuous. For many, a stable, monogamous relationship is the last thing on their minds. Rather, the purpose of same-sex marriage is to legitimate homosexual behavior, thereby making it morally acceptable and part of the social mainstream. In short, it’s about fostering a cultural revolution — one that overturns Judeo-Christian civilization.



The homosexual agenda is cultural Marxism masquerading as “progress.” Its goal is to redefine the family into an appendage of the homosexual movement, seeking to transform men and women into interchangeable parts. Children don’t need two daddies or two mommies. They need a father and a mother. Same-sex marriage is not just wrong. It goes against nature, morality and God. That’s why — like every other attempt at social engineering — it is doomed to fail. The cultural wreckage, however, will be immense. America is sliding toward Sodom and Gomorrah.

'I Am Your Moon. And You Are My Beasts': The Birth Of Glenn Beck's Independence Day Extravaganza

Tens of thousands of Glenn Beck acolytes gathered in Salt Lake City, Utah over the Independence Day holiday weekend to participate in Beck's multi-day "Man in the Moon" event, which is just the latest annual reminder of Beck's inflated sense of self-importance.

While the centerpiece of the event was the "Man in the Moon" stage show, which Beck promised was going to permanently "change the way we celebrate Fourth of July," the gathering featured a variety of exhibits, presentations, and speeches which, at least according to The Blaze, were all met with wild applause.

For instance, when Sen. Mike Lee praised the Constitution, "the audience erupted in cheers and applause" and when he attacked the Supreme Court, "the audience applauded wildly."

Elsewhere, Rep. Louie Gohmert "received a standing ovation" when he stood up from the audience to praise Michelle Malkin during her remarks as she railed against immigration reform, for which she received "wild applause" from the crowd.

David Barton also spoke at the event and, amazingly, he too "was greeted with intense applause and a standing ovation."

Heck, even a couple that survived a plane crash received a "chorus of applause."

But the highlight of the weekend was the "epic rendition of America’s story" as told from the moon's perspective in the "Man in the Moon" show, during which "the crowd erupted in applause throughout the show. From start to finish, attendees cheered as America’s story was told in great fanfare."

The actual Man in the Moon, not surprisingly, was portrayed by Beck himself and according to this report from the Salt Lake Tribune, the entire thing was as maudlin and bizarre was one would expect from an epic Glenn Beck production:

As Beck began narrating — telling a somewhat biblical version of the evolution of mankind — he took on the role of a watchful moon admiring sister Earth, calling her "Blue," and his face became superimposed upon the giant stage moon.

The moon witnessed mankind, referred to as "the beasts," become greedy and violent and lose its way.

Noah’s ark rode out the flood, followed by a Tower of Babel scenario.

Fast forward, and the Man in the Moon touched upon the evils of slavery and praised Abraham Lincoln.

Dancers illustrated man’s creation of electricity. And, with the coming of the Industrial Revolution, a giant robot in the corner of the stage began moving its arms and upper body.

War was signaled by the sound of sirens as the stage went dark and fireworks shrieked into the sky.

Images of Hitler, and the Man in the Moon told of World War II ending as an atom bomb exploded on screen.

Beck then took the stage as himself again, saying that is how the story ended, for now, but that new chapters would be written.

The audience then watched video of John F. Kennedy speak of reaching for the stars and sending men to the moon.

A visibly aged and wrinkled moon concluded with an impassioned speech about the "puzzle" that is mankind.

"I cannot tell you how your story ends, because I am not the author. You are," said the Man in the Moon. "Love, love one another. I cannot wait to see what you decide to do."

"I am your moon. And you are my beasts," the moon continued, promising to be there in mankind’s darkest hour "to remind you that on the morrow, the sun shall return."

The moon began to spin to the sound of upbeat country music, fireworks once again exploded overhead, and the show was over.

But perhaps the most amazing aspect of the show was that it opened with a flag "raising" ceremony in which "two men dressed in soldiers’ garb who were suspended in the air upside down actually 'lowered' the American flag" upside-down from the ceiling in "an effort to show that America is in distress":

Fischer to Immigration Opponents: 'Get Busy' and Procreate

Today on Focal Point, Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association warned that the White House, Senate and Supreme Court are controlled by “lawless, immoral and godless” people and that America’s last hope lies with “conservatives in the House of Representatives; they are the last link between the American people and any shred of constitutional form of government.”

However, Fischer says if the House approves immigration reform, then “that thread is going to snap and we will be plunging at warp speed into the abyss.”

But Fischer said that America could stave off the need for more immigrants if Americans would “get busy” and have more kids: “The whole argument for immigration is, ‘We got to get workers.’ Why? Because native-born Americans simply are not reproducing at rates fast enough to increase the population. So we know what we need to do. Let’s get busy.”

Watch:

Harry Jackson: Gay Marriage Will 'Destroy Children'

In a column for the Christian Post today, Bishop Harry Jackson claims that children raised by single moms often “turn to lives of crime and violence” in order gain attention from father figures.

Naturally, Jackson connects this assertion to the debate over marriage equality, warning that legalizing same-sex marriage will create “broken relationships” within families that will “destroy children.” He even pushes the consistently debunked claim that marriage rates fall in countries that pass gay marriage laws because people “simply stopped bothering to get married in the first place”:

Is it any wonder that young boys turn to lives of crime and violence, when the purveyors of such lifestyles are the only men to show them any real attention? It is about as surprising as a starving child attempting to steal bread. And no social policy that fails to take into account the deep and legitimate need that every child has for both a mother and a father can ever be considered fair or just.

What does the internal aching so many children have for their missing fathers have to do with how marriage is legally defined? Advocates of redefining marriage constantly scoff at the notion that their policy goals could have a negative effect on anyone. "How does the legal union of two homosexual men affect your marriage?" they ask mockingly.

And of course the debate has nothing to do with my marriage or yours. It has to do with how future generations of adults will approach the very idea of marriage and parenthood. We already have nearly two decades of social experimentation in Scandinavia to draw upon. And it tells us that the broader the definition of marriage is the fewer adults bother with it in the first place. Since legalizing registered partnerships and gay marriage in Scandinavia, an overwhelming number of adults have simply stopped bothering to get married in the first place.

As I have pointed out many times before, words that mean everything, mean nothing. The looser we make the definition of marriage, the fewer people will feel bound to its obligations and constraints. And while broken relationships can hurt adults, they can destroy children.

A Very Anti-Gay Fourth of July

Peter LaBarbara invites you to celebrate Independence Day this year by sending a donation to his anti-gay group Americans For Truth About Homosexuality.

In an email to members today, LaBarbera warns that America “is headed for tyranny” if “Big Gay Inc.” gets its way.

“As we contemplate our unique American liberties and blessings this July 4th -- and their potential to be eroded or eliminated in the name of ‘gay tolerance’ -- please consider giving to AFTAH to help us in our Truth-telling mission,” LaBarbera writes, warning, “The Big Lie of ‘gay rights as civil rights’ has taken hold in America's power centers, including, tragically, our Supreme Court.”

DEAR AFTAH READER,

As we contemplate our unique American liberties and blessings this July 4th -- and their potential to be eroded or eliminated in the name of "gay tolerance" -- please consider giving to AFTAH to help us in our Truth-telling mission. Donate online HERE (or click blue button at right) -- or send a gift by mail of $100, $50, $25 or whatever you can give to: AFTAH, PO Box 5522, Naperville, IL 60567-5522.

Americans For Truth fearlessly proclaims the hard facts about homosexualism -- including some that even many "conservatives" are reluctant to hear -- because we believe in telling it like it is. Now more than ever, AFTAH's role is critical -- because the Big Lie of "gay rights as civil rights" has taken hold in America's power centers, including, tragically, our Supreme Court (see articles below).

We don't have a fraction of the money of Big Gay Inc., and we're not even good at asking for it -- but your gifts to AFTAH go a long way in confronting "gay power," and they are a blessing to us. By our mere existence, AFTAH inspires countless hundreds of thousands of Americans (and people all over the world) NEVER to capitulate to the lies of the Homosexual/Transgender Lobby and its media cheerleaders. The pro-LGBT Left smears us as a "hate group," but if that were true, then God Himself is a "hateful bigot"! No, defending common sense and truth and exposing evil is not "hate" -- but for those who "hate the truth," we are a threat that must be extinguished!

A moral America is a free America, but an America that embraces sexual immorality and extreme gender confusion -- as "civil rights" -- is headed for tyranny. In these perilous times in which "good is evil and evil, good" (Isaiah 5:20), please help AFTAH stand as a brave and honest voice in a darkened culture. Thank you and God bless.
