Family Research Council Warns Anti-Bias Executive Order Threatens 'Religious And Constitutional Liberties'

President Obama has reportedly decided to sign an executive order to bar federal government contractors from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. The news did not sit well with Peter Sprigg of the Family Research Council.

In a statement on behalf of the FRC today, Sprigg warns that the executive order will undermine “religious and constitutional liberties” and lead to a flood of lawsuits.

This political gesture reflects the president's repeated disregard for the legislative process. Congress has not passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) or similar provisions, despite activists' pressure to do so, because of the detrimental impact on employers' and employees' constitutional freedoms of religion, speech, and association. Historically, these kinds of provisions have not been applied to conduct-based distinctions that are not found in the Constitution.

Today's announced executive order will give activists a license to challenge their employers whenever they feel aggrieved, exposing those employers to threats of costly legal proceedings and the potential of jeopardizing future contracts. Furthermore, by requiring federal contractors to consider characteristics and behaviors related to a person's sexual orientation or gender identity, this policy will make contractors liable for protecting actual or perceived self-disclosed and fluid identities that may not even be known.

The timing of this announcement is clearly designed to curry favor with activist organizations. While the president prepares to address a New York gathering of gay rights supporters, the American people will be left to sort out the costs to religious and constitutional liberties resulting from this executive order.

Mike Huckabee To Join Liberty Counsel For Right-Wing Pastor Rallies

Liberty Counsel is organizing a “powerful, five-screen multimedia extravaganza” for conservative pastors who want to stop America from “spiraling out of control as our foundation of traditional values is threatened and eroded every day” and “to dramatically affect the 2014 elections this coming November.”

The “Who Will Stand?” rallies will feature former Gov. Mike Huckabee, pseudo-historian David Barton and Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver, along with uplifting songs and “thousands of images portraying the beauty and grandeur of all 50 states of our great nation” that apparently will help bring an end to President Obama’s tyranny.

Televangelist James Robison, Star Parker, Ralph Reed and Samuel Rodriguez are also listed as speakers.

While so far the events are only scheduled to take place in Florida churches, Liberty Counsel aims to expand the effort to “Texas, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Arkansas, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Virginia.”

WorldNetDaily Upset By Bill Defending Rights Of LGBT People Abroad

WorldNetDaily is startled by the introduction of the International Human Rights Defense Act, a bill put forward by Sen. Ed Markey to help protect LGBT rights — or as WND refers to it, “alternative lifestyle choices” — abroad.

Cheryl Chumley, a WND Books author, tells WND that the legislation is not only unconstitutional, but will “make America look even more impotent on the international stage.”

Barack Obama has integrated promotions of homosexuality and other alternative lifestyle choices into his policy and practice since his election, successfully promoting the “gay” lifestyle in the U.S. military and forbidding the enforcement of the federal law called the Defense of Marriage Act that supported traditional marriage.



Prepared by Sen. Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts, the “International Human Rights Defense Act” would demand that the State Department “make preventing and responding to discrimination and violence against the LGBT community a foreign policy priority and devise a global strategy to achieve those goals.”



For Cheryl Chumley, author of the newly released “Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming our Reality,” said it’s another example of the government using its authority and power to pursue a special interest for Obama – far beyond where the Constitution allows it to go.

“Markey wants our U.S. State Department to take a politically charged stand on homosexual rights and try and push his liberal views onto other governments. Really? Doesn’t America under President Obama have enough problems with its foreign policy without jumping into the hot-bed that’s called gay rights?” she said.



“On top of that, a bill like this just reeks of special interest agenda, and – just as our nation’s military under Obama is tasked with pursuing a radical environmental agenda, or NASA under Obama tasked with boosting the self-esteem of Muslim nations by emphasizing their space contributions – it makes our country’s top diplomats push forward with a public relations message that’s sure to do one thing: Make America look even more impotent on the international stage.”

President Beck Has A Message For The World: 'We Will Pound You Into Glass'

On his radio broadcast today, Glenn Beck reacted to the unfolding crisis in Iraq by declaring that if he was the President of the United States, he'd recall all US soldiers and station them along our borders in order to seal off America before telling the rest of the world that it is on its own.

President Beck would give the state of Israel the green light to do whatever it feels is necessary in order to protect itself, including the use of nuclear weapons, but the US would not be getting involved anywhere in the world because America needs to focus on getting back in line with God.

That doesn't mean that America would be going into a shell, Beck proclaimed, warning the rest of the world that "if you screw with us, we will pound you into glass."

We "will destroy you in a heartbeat," Beck warned any nation that would even contemplate messing with America, pledging to utterly decimate entire cities if necessary and then just walk away while this nation focuses on getting right with God because America is God's top priority.

"He will set things right here first," Beck asserted. "He'll worry about the Middle East later; He'll figure this one out and humble us first" so that America can once again be used as a "tool in His hands":

Kevin Swanson Links Dumbledore And Gobber The Belch To Pedophilia

Last week on “Generations Radio,” Religious Right activist Kevin Swanson decried the news that Gobber the Belch from “How To Train Your Dragon” is gay, warning listeners that Gobber — like Dumbledore from the Harry Potter series — effectively encourages pedophilia.

“Of course the producers are going to reveal the mentor as homosexual,” Swanson said. “That answer is obvious: for the same reason why the Greek mentors were homosexual, and they were focused in on what the Christian fathers used to refer to as the corruption of boys, and we can also throw out the term pedophilia.”

Randy Thomasson Says Marriage Equality Is 'A Form Of Slavery'

Filling in for right-wing talk show host Janet Mefferd on Friday, Randy Thomasson of Save California warned that marriage equality laws amount to slavery and totalitarianism.

“It’s tyranny, it’s intolerance, it’s attack, it’s a form of slavery even, that you cannot even have freedom, the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, and this is leading away from mere opposition to oppression with coming persecution,” Thomasson said.

Thomasson also interviewed Americans For Truth About Homosexuality’s Peter LaBarbera and introduced him by comparing transgender people to people who believe they are actually horses.

Alan Keyes Recorded A Robocall On Behalf Of Gordon Klingenschmitt's Bid For Office

Next week, demon expert, anti-gay exorcist and all around crackpot Gordon Klingenschmitt will be on the ballot in the Colorado Republican primary for a seat representing District 15 in the state House of Representatives and he's trotting out the endorsements from like-minded Religious Right supporters such as Susan Sutherland of Colorado Right to Life and Jerry Boykin from the Family Research Council.

He has even gotten his good friend Alan Keyes to record a robocall on his behalf:

This is Ambassador Alan Keyes calling to endorse my friend Dr. Gordon Klingenschmitt for House District 15 state representative.

Gordon is an Air Force Academy graduate honorably discharged after twenty years on active duty. As a whistle-blower, Gordon valiantly defended the First Amendment and our military chaplains' right to pray in Jesus' name.

Gordon's stand cost him his military career and pension, so Congress backed him up. Gordon's left-wing opponent is lying about Gordon's inspiring record knowing that even the Secretary of the Navy was corrected by Gordon and Congress on this one.

Ronald Reagan said trust by verify. Don't be deceived; Gordon is a man of integrity, boldness, and strength of faith and character.

Vote for Gordon Klingenschmitt to defend your Constitutional rights.

 

Robert Oscar Lopez Calls Gay Parenting A 'Crime Against Humanity'

Religious Right activist and erotic gay fiction novelist Robert Oscar Lopez is out with yet another over-the-top diatribe against gay parents. Writing today in BarbWire, Lopez argues that almost every “scenario involving a same-sex couple with exclusive custody of small children is adult misconduct at best or a crime against humanity at worst.”

He goes on to mock gay parents as “bossy,” “self-centered brats” who make him “want to puke.”

“[Gay couples] shouldn’t be in the business of acquiring a human being,” he writes. “Go to a dog pound and pick up a puppy.”

Lopez comforts himself that gay parents and their supporters soon “will be dead” and their lives “long-forgotten” like the Berlin Wall.

In a best case scenario, there is a widow who comes out of the closet after her husband dies, and then gets help from a lesbian lover while raising her children. She makes sure not to trample on their father’s memory, and doesn’t force them to call her new lover “Mom.” In that one rare, specific, unintentional case, yes, same-sex parenting is okay.

Every other scenario involving a same-sex couple with exclusive custody of small children is adult misconduct at best or a crime against humanity at worst. If it happened because of divorce, then the gay parent and a former heterosexual lover failed to resolve their differences and didn’t stay together for the children. The gay parent, who’s now a single parent because the opposite-sex partner left, has no business moving in a homosexual lover not related to the children and forcing them to deal with that new presence.

If the gay couple adopted, they did a disservice to the child, even if the adoptee turns out okay and seems, on the surface, not to object to what happened. Children in the adoption system landed there because of a tragedy and need to be placed in a home with as few complications as possible. A same-sex couple brings moral controversy and also lacks either a father or a mother, to which every child has a right.



Gay couples who want kids have become entitled, bossy, and self-righteous, and nobody seems willing to challenge them. When I hear same-sex couples say they need to have a “right” to adopt, the way a person has a “right” to a tax refund, I want to puke. One lesbian couple sent a video message to al-Jazeera showing off the baby they just adopted, and whining that because of homophobia, they weren’t allowed to adopt a second one.



The entitlement. The selfishness. The narcissism. The arrogance. I long for the days when the gay community’s visceral struggles kept them somewhat down-to-earth and humble. I never imagined the community I grew up in would end up becoming such a tribe of self-centered brats.

People aren’t property. There is no such thing as a right to adopt. Society doesn’t need to fulfill your desire to have children. And don’t tell me it’s about love. If you want someone to love and you want it right now, and you don’t want to make compromises with your life goals and build a life with the opposite sex, then you shouldn’t be in the business of acquiring a human being.

Go to a dog pound and pick up a puppy.



Instead of the gay adult giving up homosexuality and a gay lover for the sake of a child, the child must give up a father or mother.

And gay couples intoxicated with this same-sex parenting fad don’t even see the contradictions. It’s sickening.



The universe would have been better had they not bullied everyone around them into accepting these horrible social costs and collateral damage.

It was all because of something the gay couple wanted. And like leg warmers, the Berlin Wall, and pet rocks, same-sex parenting will pass as a long-forgotten fad one day. The yuppies who came up with this idea in leftie enclaves like Austin, Texas, and Berkeley, California, will be dead, and their grandchildren will be agonizing over the broken branches of the strange family trees passed down to them.

Rick Perry, Supporter Of Federal Marriage Amendment, Says Federal Government Should Have No Role In Marriage

Texas Gov. Rick Perry attempted to dodge questions today about his comparison of homosexuality to alcohol abuse, telling CNBC that he will leave the efficacy of ex-gay therapy — recently endorsed by the Texas GOP — “to the psychologists and the doctors.”

Perry also told host Joe Kernan that he “respects” decisions to legalize same-sex marriage in states like New York. “This conversation has always been about states’ rights on this host of issue” and about rebuking “this idea that Washington should be given total and full ability to make these decisions,” he said.

Of course, when he was running for president, Perry supported the federal government intervening on same-sex marriage, endorsing the Federal Marriage Amendment.

But the Texas governor was for the right of states to pass marriage equality laws before he was against it and then for it again.

“Our friends in New York six weeks ago passed a statute that said marriage can be between two people of the same sex. And you know what? That’s New York, and that’s their business, and that’s fine with me,” he said in July of 2011. “If you believe in the 10th Amendment, stay out of their business.”

Now it seems that Perry has reversed himself once again and is going back to his original position…or, maybe he just doesn’t understand how the Federal Marriage Amendment would work.
