Janet Porter Wants Republicans 'Nationwide' To Adopt Texas GOP's Ex-Gay Resolution

Janet Porter of Faith 2 Action is so happy about the Republican Party of Texas’s decision to embrace ex-gay therapy as part of its new far-right platform that she wants similar language endorsing the pseudo-science “adopted nationwide”:

She might find allies in Tony Perkins and David Barton, members of the 2012 Republican National Committee platform committee who are both vocal supporters of ex-gay therapy.

Barton, a former vice chairman of the Texas Republican Party, bragged in 2012 of getting 70 of his 71 resolutions approved by the RNC, and Perkins released a statement yesterday praising the Texas GOP’s ex-gay resolution.

In 2012, Perkins claimed that his Family Research Council joined forces with Eagle Forum to shape the national GOP platform. Eagle Forum is the same group that successfully added the ex-gay language to the Texas GOP platform.

Klingenschmitt: Teaching Kids About Gay Marriage Is Mind Rape

Earlier this year, Scotland legalized gay marriage and now a debate has broken out over whether teachers and parents who object to it should be allowed to opt out of having to teach about it or have their children learn about it during sex education classes.

On yesterday's "Pray In Jesus Name" program, Gordon Klingenschmitt explained that the real issue at stake here is whether or not children will be "recruited into perversion," saying that those who support teaching kids about gay marriage are declaring, in essence, that "every child has a right to be raped, at least in their mind, by somebody who is going to pervert them and recruit them into sexual immorality":

Alex Jones Warns Civil War Is Coming After Las Vegas Shooting

Alex Jones has dedicated today’s edition of InfoWars to blaming the Las Vegas shooting on a government conspiracy and explaining how he would have planned his own false flag operation if he worked as a government agent.

Naturally, he predicted that all of the supposed smears against himself and the Tea Party will cause more right-wing conspiracy theorists to carry out violent attacks like the one in Las Vegas and eventually bring about a civil war that will leave millions dead.

Rick Santorum Seems To Think His Movie Was More Successful Than 'Noah'

Despite the fact that Rick Santorum’s movie, “The Christmas Candle,” made just $2.3 million, well short of its $7 million budget, he nonetheless claims that it was an “authentic” film that was much more successful than Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah.”

“One of the reasons that Noah had such a great splash and then died like a rock, it sank, was that it wasn’t true, wasn’t authentic,” the former senator and presidential candidate said of the movie that grossed well over $300 million.

The former senator told Christian Today that his company, EchoLight Studios, can help “reclaim the public square” and make the church “the centre of culture.”

"Popular culture has an impact on the government, on culture and the direction that policies take. As a moviegoer who appreciates good quality art and entertainment, it's always been an interest of mine to see that impact," he says.

He took up the opportunity to lead the team at EchoLight after being approached by a friend in the business who wanted to make movies "consistent with the guiding principles of our country - in particular, portraying faith in an authentic way to movie-going audiences".

"That had a really great appeal to me, to make movies based on universal truths and that deal with faith in a way that is more representative of how it actually affects people and their lives, as opposed to the contrivance born of other, Hollywood, films," Santorum says.

Santorum is certain that popular culture is the means to effect change. "I use this phrase all the time: that politics is downstream from culture," he insists.

"If we want to impact the political system and shape the country, then we have to reclaim the public square and make an impact in popular culture."

The focus of EchoLights, which will debut one of its first movies, Hoovey, next year, is to "turn the industry on its head" and use churches to premiere films, rather than leave them as an afterthought. Santorum explains: "We want the Church to be the centre of culture, which it has been missing...We're about enabling the Church to do what it was designed to do – to be salt and light.

"One of the reasons that Noah had such a great splash and then died like a rock, it sank, was that it wasn't true, wasn't authentic," he says.

Steve Stockman Suggests Obama Is A Secret Muslim And Terrorist Sympathizer

Speaking with NewsMax’s Steve Malzberg last week, Rep. Steve Stockman insisted that President Obama “has a grudge against the military and the American people” and a “propensity to fall again and again on the side of terrorists” in countries like Egypt, Syria and Libya.

“A lot of people say he’s not something, we can’t say it on the radio, but if it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, I think it might be a duck,” he said, suggesting that Obama is a secret Muslim.

Lifting a joke from Sen. Rand Paul, the Texas Republican also suggested that the administration exchange National Security Advisor Susan Rice for a U.S. Marine held in a Mexican jail on weapons charges.

Fischer Upset Pope Francis Allowed Worship Of The 'Demon God' Allah At The Vatican

On Sunday, Pope Francis hosted an interfaith "prayer gathering" at the Vatican featuring Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as well as Jewish, Muslim and Christian spiritual leaders.

Bryan Fischer, of course, is not happy about it, mainly because Muslims worship a "demon god."

Saying that interfaith prayers are "horribly misguided," Fischer declared that "not every being that occupies the unseen world, the spiritual world, is a good guy, is a good spirit," explaining that in addition to the good spirits of God, Jesus, and angels, there are also countless dark, dangerous, and sinister spirits that are under the control of Satan.

Allah is one of the latter, Fischer proclaimed, saying "Allah, as he is referred to and thought of and addressed and spoken of and invoked by Muslims is not a god, he is a demon":

If He Did It: Alex Jones Explains How He Would Have Planned Las Vegas Shooting If He Was A Government Agent

InfoWars host Alex Jones is pretty sure that the Sunday Las Vegas shooting was a false flag operation meant to discredit conservative activists, and today he took a page from O.J. Simpson by spelling out how he would have orchestrated the massacre if he was a government agent.

Flashback: When The Religious Right And Republicans Quashed An Investigation Into Right-Wing Extremism

Reports that the married couple who shot and killed two police officers, a bystander and themselves in Las Vegas this week were motivated by right-wing extremism have highlighted one of the more troubling trends in even the “mainstream” Right — denial that violent right-wing extremism even exists.

As Brian mentioned earlier today, a conservative pundit’s claim on the same day as the shooting that far-right violence is a “complete and total bogeyman” echoes the objections the attacks that many right-wing groups lobbed at a 2009 Department of Homeland Security report on domestic extremism. Right-wing groups and their allies in Congress created a fuss about the report, claiming that it was an attack on conservatives, Christians and veterans.

The American Family Association, Concerned Women for America and the American Center for Law and Justice piled on. Republicans in Congress demanded an investigation into how the report had come to pass. Spotting a good fundraising opportunity, Liberty Counsel even printed out “Proud to be a Right-Wing Extremist” cards to distribute to its members.

Eventually, the pressure led DHS to retract the report and later to cut back the team that produced it. Two years later, speaking publicly for the first time, the analyst who wrote the report — who happened to be a conservative Republican Mormon —  said that the attacks on his unit’s work had undermined law enforcement’s ability to address the “growing and dangerous problem” of violent right-wing extremism.

What happened at DHS as a result of the criticism?
My team was dissolved. All training courses and briefings presentations were stopped. DHS leaders made it increasingly difficult to release another report on this topic.

Why would DHS leaders dissolve your team and stop these analytic activities?

The subject had become too politically charged. As a result, DHS leaders adopted a risk adverse approach toward this issue. Perhaps they thought it was a matter of organizational preservation.

Do you think the dissolution of your unit that you discuss has negatively affected State and local law enforcement?

Certainly. There is one less agency to assist state and local law enforcement with this growing and dangerous problem at a time of heightened activity.

Yet, as recently as last year, Religous Right groups were still using their bogus criticism of the report as a talking point against the Obama administration.
