Harry Jackson: Same-Sex Marriage 'Will be The Beginning of the End of the Family as We Know It'

Bishop Harry Jackson yesterday tried to spin Kim Kardashian’s short-lived marriage as a reason to oppose marriage equality for gays and lesbians by arguing that the “enfeebled state of marriage today is all the more reason to fight to preserve it,” meaning, to deny same-sex couples the right to marry. Jackson, who earlier called marriage equality a “Satanic plot to destroy our seed,” warned that marriage equality will do even more damage to marriage than Kardashian’s 72-day marriage because it would create a harmful environment for children and lead to an increase in divorce, the legalization of polygamy and the proliferation of “pro-homosexual propaganda.” The anti-gay activist said that same-sex marriage will “further weaken marriage by defining it out of existence” and “be the beginning of the end of the family as we know it”:

For every high-profile celebrity wedding that makes headlines, it seems we are treated to at least two high-profile celebrity divorces. I am praying for people like Kim Kardashian whose marriage problems seem to suggest that there should be a public exam for marriage prior to the issuance of a license. Unfortunately, celebrities are not the only folks whose marriages are caving in under the cultural pressures of our generation. The depressing state of marriage in our nation today provides more fuel for the fire for those that advocate redefining marriage to include same-sex couples. After all, as the joke goes, how can homosexuals make more of a mess of the institution of marriage than heterosexuals already have?

On the surface, same-sex “marriage” advocates appear to have a point. And I would be among the first to admit that marriage as an institution was terribly weakened by both the no-fault divorce laws first passed in the 1970s and by a general willingness of our culture to separate marriage from childbearing. Neither of these factors had anything to do with homosexuality, and both dealt severe blows to the strength of American families. However, these are not reasons to further weaken marriage by defining it out of existence. (I am not the first to observe that words that mean everything mean nothing, and “marriage” is headed down that very road.) The enfeebled state of marriage today is all the more reason to fight to preserve it and hopefully to restore it to its former strength.



In the few states where marriage has been redefined to include same-sex couples, various churches and ministries have already been threatened with the loss of their tax exempt status if they refused to perform ceremonies for same sex couples. Earlier this year, California governor Jerry Brown signed into law a bill mandating that public schools teach their students “the role and contributions of” homosexual American historical figures, and forbade the use of any resources that “contain any matter reflecting adversely” upon gays on the basis of sexual orientation. The legislation also urged charter schools and private schools “take notice of the provisions of this act.” It does not take much imagination to see that if marriage is redefined nation-wide, such pro-homosexual propaganda will be mandated in every public school in the country.

Lastly, we are fools if we think that redefining marriage to include homosexual couples is the end of the story. To the contrary, it is only the beginning. Groups advocating polygamy and polyamory have their arguments prepared and will begin advocating for the definition of marriage to be relaxed further to accommodate their preferences. Children may then be born to and even adopted by any number of “families” with any number of mothers and fathers, sleeping with whomever they depending in their whims. Redefining marriage will be the beginning of the end of the family as we know it.

Gingrich, Wildmon and Garlow Hold Conference Call with Iowa Pastors as Caucus Approaches

Facing a barrage of negative ads and a severe drop in support among Iowa voters, Newt Gingrich today held a conference call with Iowa pastors to build up his support among the state’s social conservative voters. Religious Right leaders Don Wildmon and Jim Garlow, both of whom have endorsed Gingrich, were featured on the call, and David Brody of CBN News obtained Wildmon’s letter sent to Iowa pastors. In the letter, Wildmon stressed Gingrich’s “thrust to remove elitist judges,” including the Iowa justices who “voted in 2009 to impose homosexual marriage on all Iowans;” in fact, Gingrich helped bankroll a campaign led by Wildmon’s American Family Association to remove three justices from the Iowa Supreme Court. Wildmon says that Gingrich is “the one person who can lead us out of the awful environment created by the present occupant in the White House”:

Dear Iowa pastors and friends:

I am inviting you (and select Christian Iowa Leaders) to join me on a Conference Call with Former Speaker Newt Gingrich this Friday, December 30, 12 Noon (CST).

Dr. Jim Garlow will emcee the call, pastor Skyline Church San-Diego, founder of the California Pastors Rapid Response Team, a group of several thousand pastors who led the successful charge for Prop. 8 in 2008, a Constitutional Amendment to ban same-sex marriage in California.

These are important and critical days in which to live and serve the Lord. I'm praying that the Lord is doing something dramatic in our time, and Iowa is leading the way on January 3rd.

Newt is leading the thrust to remove elitist judges who ignore the American people, like the 3 Iowa Supreme Court Justices who voted in 2009 to impose homosexual marriage on all Iowans.

On the call we will hear directly from Newt about this historic undertaking and hopefully have a chance to ask him about his plans for his "21st Century Contract With America."

I have been impressed with Newt and have come to the conclusion that Newt is the one person who can lead us out of the awful environment created by the present occupant in the White House. As Newt has expressed it, "America’s exceptional nature is based on the self-evident truths contained in the Declaration of Independence. Our rights are endowed by our Creator and they are unalienable." This is the type of understanding and strong leadership America needs.

Our Nation requires courageous, principled conservative leadership now more than ever.....from someone who understands that our rights as Americans are a gift from God, not government.

Please join me on this conference call with Newt Gingrich. Your participation is important to our future.

Thank you for your active participation in these critically important times.

Don Wildmon

Klingenschmitt Prays for Lowe's and Florida Family Association for 'Exposing the Deeds of Darkness'

Gordon “Chaps” Klingenschmitt is joining other right-wing activists in defending the Florida Family Association and Lowe’s, which bowed to the extremist group’s pressure to stop advertising on TLC’s All-American Muslim. Klingenschmitt prayed for God to “grant Lowe's their greatest financial profits” and asked God to bless the FFA for “exposing the deeds of darkness.” He also labeled All-American Muslim “Islamic propaganda” and said people who oppose FFA’s pressure campaign against the reality show’s advertisers are “terrorist sympathizers.”

Klingenschmitt: Almighty God, please bless Lowes Home Improvement stores for their wise decision to stop advertising for the TV show All-American Muslim, which is nothing but Islamic propaganda designed to whitewash the fact that practitioners of militant Islam not only slaughtered over 3000 American civilians, but routinely kill millions of Christians worldwide. Bless the Florida Family Association who led the way by exposing the deeds of darkness, from Ephesians 5:11, and grant Lowe's their greatest financial profits for standing against real violent hatred, not the fake “hate” and “bigotry” they are now accused of by terrorist sympathizers.

Ron Paul's Iowa State Director Dedicated His Career to Fighting 'Evil' Gay Rights

As Iowa State Director for the Ron Paul presidential campaign Mike Heath claims to have visited close to three hundred houses of worship on Paul’s behalf, more evidence of Heath’s rabidly anti-gay background while a Religious Right activist in Maine is coming to light. Before Maine’s marriage equality law was repealed, Heath contended that the legalization of same-sex marriage led to bad weather because “our elected officials overturned a law of nature, and in its place paid honor to evil and unnatural practices,” and Warren Throckmorton, who first uncovered that Paul was boasting about an endorsement from a pastor who advocates for the death penalty for gays and lesbians, notes that Heath was also the Board Chairman of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, one of the most fringe and virulently anti-gay groups in the country.

In Maine, Heath urged the legislature to re-criminalize homosexuality, saying it would “be prudent to reinstate Maine’s anti-sodomy law,” and worked to overturn the state’s marriage equality law, declaring, “Homosexuality has absolutely nothing to do with marriage. Homosexuality is a sickness.”

In an interview with AFTAH president Peter LaBarbera last year, Heath said that homosexuality is not only “inconsistent with the Word of God but it’s inconsistent with biology and common sense,” and that “there is only one position on homosexuality and it’s the one that we take”:

He also alleged that homosexuality will “erode the strength of our nation”:

Heath even claimed that gay rights is “evil” and “nutty,” writing that the “‘gay’ ideology is going to go the way of the Berlin wall” and pledging, “I want Maine to be the place where the ‘gay’ wall starts to crumble.” Heath said that he intends to “take back” the rainbow flag from gay right advocates, saying: “God gave us the rainbow long before the sexual disorientation mob stole it. The rainbow reminds us of His mercy. He will never destroy the world again with a flood. Let's just the tell the loud mouth ‘gays’ that the Rainbow flag belongs to us now. It is a symbol of God's judgment that will fall on them if they persist in their sinful ways”:

Years ago we said the "gays" were going to go after the children. Everyone laughed thinking we were nuts.

In August the Maine Supreme Court perverted a nineteenth-century definition of adoption. They unanimously ruled that nineteenth century Mainers imagined homosexual adoption and allowed for it in their definition. Maine state government is now placing kids in "queer" homes through both the foster care and adoption systems.

There was never legislative approval for any of this, I don't believe. It was all created by unelected Judges and bureaucrats. The entire Middle School System in Maine is now moving toward the provision of prescription contraceptives to 11 year old girls without parental knowledge. Don't think that the King Middle School incident is the end of the story. No way. That is just the beginning. The only thing that will turn that around is a lawsuit that may be filed this Friday. The people of Portland, Christians especially, don't care enough to do ANYTHING. So, guess what. The political and cultural pressure is going to grow and grow. The tyranny of "gay" ideology has already silenced the church of Portland. It is only a matter of time before the cancer spreads throughout Maine.

You think John the Baptist is the only one in history to be silenced by a tyrant? It happens all the time. It isn't supposed to happen here. It is, however, already happening because Christians voluntarily silence themselves. Portland, our largest and most influential city, is leading the way. In the early nineties I compared Portland to Sodom. Little did I know.

While the front line of this war seems to be the schools the front line is actually the heart of every Christian in Maine. The front line is not the mind of the Christian. We already know the difference between right and wrong. The front line is our hearts. Do we care? Do we have the courage to do something about it?

Taxpayers are funding re-education groups called Civil Rights Teams in most of Maine's public schools. These communist-lite groups intimidate Christian faculty and students into silence about sexual immorality in the name of "civil rights." It is insane, and it is working. Evil is like that.

If we care more about our dogs and cats than our God-given obligation to raise our children and grandchildren up in the way they should go then God must be thinking about vocal chords for rocks.

You might conclude that I am not hopeful about Maine's future. Nothing could be further from the truth. This "gay" ideology is going to go the way of the Berlin wall. It is only a matter of time. It can't come soon enough for me. One person told me the backlash would come in five or ten years. As far as I'm concerned the backlash is going on right now. I'll never give in to these people, these evil ideas. Most Mainers feel the same way I do. They are going to speak. They are going to react. It is only a matter of time. Only a sad and pathetic minority embraces these nutty ideas about sex.

I want Maine to be the place where the "gay" wall starts to crumble. How about you? Lets take the word "gay" back from them. How about the rainbow? Lets take that back also.

The Maranacook Community School in Readfield has a rainbow flag hanging in their lobby. It was placed there by the school's noisy and pathetic "gay" rights student group. Rather than ask that a Christian flag be placed next to it, how about we just take the rainbow back. God gave us the rainbow long before the sexual disorientation mob stole it. The rainbow reminds us of His mercy. He will never destroy the world again with a flood. Let's just the tell the loud mouth "gays" that the Rainbow flag belongs to us now. It is a symbol of God's judgment that will fall on them if they persist in their sinful ways. Let's tell them that.

Religious Right Activists Warn that Gay Rights will Bring About Communist, Satanic Domination

On Americans For Truth About Homosexuality Radio Hour, Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel and Religious Right activist Paul Blair joined AFTAH’s Peter LaBarbera in exposing the surreptitious Satanic-Communist-‘Homosexualist’ conspiracy to take over America…and the world.

LaBarbera criticized Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for using “homosexualist semantics” in her speech defending the human rights and dignity of the LGBT community, and went on to commend countries with severe laws that punish gays and lesbians and face of American pressure to decriminalize homosexuality. Blair said that the communists are trying to “inculcate homosexual values, or lack of values, into the American culture” in order “to destroy the family” and create “a global utopia.” Barber readily agreed with Blair and said those “trying to impose a globalist, communist structure” are using the gay rights movement as a “polar ice cutter,” arguing that “homosexual activism, undermining the Judeo-Christian sexual ethic and doing away with it, that is the ice breaker that breaks the ice so that the bigger communist ships and the redistributionist ships” can take hold:

Referencing Family Research Council senior fellow Peter Sprigg’s condemnation of the LGBT rights directive, LaBarbera warned that we have “now become a force for evil in the world,” and Blair, once again, said that Satan is the source and “ultimate conspirator” behind “the force of communism, the force of the radical homosexual agenda, the secularist movement in America”:

Blair: Isaiah talks about in his day and age, and we’re seeing it now, where right is turned into wrong and wrong is turned into right and bitter waters have become sweet and truly we have turned the world upside down. You look at some of the things we’ve got going on in America and you would think we moved into the Twilight Zone. But ultimately all of these forces—the force of communism, the force of the radical homosexual agenda, the secularist movement in America—they all have the same source, the same ultimate conspirator, and that is Satan.

Not to be outdone, Barber claimed that Satan is behind words like ‘gay’:

Barber: Proponents of God’s objective truth relative to sexual morality and sexual sin, we’re not as crafty as the Enemy, the Enemy being Satan, what we’re talking about here is Satanic, this is sin. Those who are defenders of sin and who embrace and identify based upon giving into such sinful temptations, they are very good at crafting the language and arguing semantics. If we play by their rules and let them define the terms, then we’re off to a marked disadvantage. Unfortunately, too many people in churches and in para-church organizations and pro-family organizations across the country have adopted the euphemistic language of homosexual activists and it puts us at a distinct disadvantage.

Cindy Jacobs Unveils Election Initiative to 'Remove the Lie of Separation of Church and State'

Self-proclaimed prophet Cindy Jacobs yesterday announced a new initiative, FastForward, for followers to elect “pro-biblical value candidates” and pray for “God to give favor to pro-life, pro-biblical defense of marriage, pro-fiscal conservative candidates.” Last year, Jacobs at a prayer rally claimed that God told her, “I am going to start targeting elections” and “if they resist who I am, I am going to move them out and I’m going to move my people in.”

In her guide for prayer warriors [pdf], Jacobs asks for people to “war against” the separation of church and state and declared Everson v. Board of Education, which held that the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause applied to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause, “one of the greatest enemies of God in our nation today.” Jacobs also called on members to pray for judges who “will not legislate from the bench” and “rule morally and in the fear of the Lord.”

Determine to vote in 2012. If you have not registered, find out if it is still possible for you to do so in your state. If you have registered, plan to vote. Repent of any apathy you have had. Repent of any mindsets where you may have felt your vote didn’t matter. Repent of any religious thinking or “separation of church and state” thinking you may have had that Christians should stay out of the governmental arena. We cannot shift our nation unless we all ACT as well as PRAY!



Ask the Lord to remove the lie of “Separation of Church and State” from this nation’s governmental philosophy and from Believers mindsets! There is no such language in the Constitution. The wording of the Amendment is “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The intent of the Constitution’s framers was to prevent a state-run religion, such as England’s Anglicanism, headed by the King. In a letter to the Danbury Baptist association in 1802, Thomas Jefferson assured them the Constitution would not ever limit an individual’s free expression of religion, reiterating the Constitution’s intent. Jefferson’s statement was turned around by an activist court in the 1947 case, “Everson vs. Board of Education,” to mean that the framers meant to keep religion out of government. This ruling has become one of the greatest enemies of God in our nation today. War against it today! Use the sword of the Lord, the Word of God, and strike it down in the spirit!

Pray for our Supreme Court. Decree that God will set judges upon the bench of our highest court that will not legislate from the bench, but who will adhere to the Constitution’s original intent. Pray that the Justices will rule morally and in the fear of the Lord. “And I will restore your judges as at the first and your counselors as at the beginning.” Isaiah 1:26a

Begin the day by praising God that the United States will become the “city set on a hill” that was envisioned by our Founders. Ask God to once again place godly elected officials in office who believe as our Founders did in this regard.

Ask God to give favor to pro-life, pro-biblical defense of marriage, pro-fiscal conservative candidates. Pray that pro-biblical value candidates will be voted into office.
