Fox News' Todd Starnes: Obama ‘Hell-bent’ on Forcing Christians to Accept ‘Militant’ LGBT Agenda

Todd starnes

Fox News correspondent Todd Starnes has never been a fan of gay rights. After all, the advancement of LGBT civil equality has effectively ruined sports and the Grammys for him and has even led to the ‘religious persecution’ of saintly, anti-gay Christians like Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson.

ObamaAnd so it comes as no surprise that Starnes wasn’t too pleased with President Obama’s executive order barring discrimination against LGBT people employed by federal contractors, calling it the latest sign that the Obama administration is “hell-bent on forcing Christians to assimilate to the militant LGBT agenda”

For his latest column over at, Starnes gathers quotes from some notable anti-gay talking heads including Family Research Council’s Peter Sprigg and First Baptist Church in Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress to reinforce the point made in his comically aweful new book that Obama ultimately “believes gay rights trump everyone else’s rights – including religious rights”

The piece is basically just one big, nutty meltdown, but if you care to read it you can do so here

  1. These poor bigoted Christians. Absolute hell for them to accept the word of God and accept all peoples. Can't we run them out of America altogether and send them back to the Vatican where they belong?

  2. Why do i need to read about it every time some right wing "pundit" or "leader" os a bigoted group makes an ignorant remark? They do this dozens of times a day, always to get attention/money. It isn't news and it isn't interesting. Can we please move on?

  5. Reading the comments on the Fox "News" site is fun! Oh wait, some of these people are serious? I thought it was like the Onion.....yikes!

  6. You don't "need" to read about it, Joe. You saw the headline, you could have passed on without reading the article or making a fuss about it. Otherwise, it's called "reportage," and for people with an active interest in what our oppressors and haters are up to, it's useful information. Knowledge is power. Ignorance is not strength, as this ridiculous clown Starnes amply demonstrates.

  7. It's True!

    Out demands include track lighting in every home, Tom Ford suits and gowns, time-shares in the Pines, remedial Sondheim classes in high school, declaring Maria Callas' birthday a national holiday.

  8. @ jason MacBride - who is forcing you to read anything? If you are in a hostage situation, try to let us know.

  10. Starnes made a lifestyle choice to follow a religion that in his view embraces bigotry. Maybe the gays aren't the issue Mr. Starnes, your lifestyle choice is.

  11. Always LOL at the term "Fox correspondent."

  12. I don't know if it's the glasses or the chubby face or what but this guy always looks to me like he just stepped out of a '70s British sit-com.

  13. He should eat a few more Twinkies and just explode on air.

  14. Yes. My "militant LGBT agenda": to be able to work without getting fired for being gay or to rent an apartment without being denied or evicted because I'm gay. Next up on my "militant gay agenda": paying my bills on time and buying groceries to feed myself.

  15. He really is as ugly on the outside as he is on the inside. Maybe that's the attraction: How something as despicable can exist in reality and not just in horror movies.

  16. Todd Starnes - perpetual bitching scold. I wonder how people close to him stand him. Always complaining obsessively about anything or anyone LGBT.

  17. LOL LOL @ Richard. Yes, she is a mess, isn't she?

  18. This is the latest from the right wing, their attempt to rebrand discrimination as religious freedom (because that's constitutionally protected). But what they don't understand is that if you act like an @sshole, people will treat you like an @sshole. Yes, you have a constitutional right to act and believe whatever you want. However, the rest of us are not obliged to like you for it. And that's what bothers them.

  19. why is everything a big conspiracy to these people? Obama, of course, is the biggest conspiracy leader to them because, well, he's Black. i mean, let's face it; it's true.

    what about the 'militant' conspiracy they are foisting - to turn the U.S. into a theocratic christianist country?

  20. I bet he thinks that Obama stands outside his bedroom window at night and watches him sleep. Better put another layer of foil on your head, Todd, or else the lizard people's mind rays make you a slave of the Illuminati!

  21. No, he's absolutely right. We want our rights to trump religious liberty. Specifically, religious liberty to discriminate against LGBT people. Yep, absolutely we do.

    Your religious liberty to discriminate against black people was trumped long ago. Same with your religious liberty to discriminate against women. Your religious liberty to molest young boys is also not allowed. Get over yourselves.

  22. Mr. Doughboy here was a virgin at 30 and women still reject his advances despite appearing on TV. His envy regarding the advantages gay men have in bed is palpable.

  23. I didn't hear Todd complaining when Mitt Romney was forcing the country to accept the militant Mormon agenda, requiring good "Christians" to accept his lifestyle choice as exactly equal to a real religion.

  24. @ Mike in the Tundra - Get back to me when you graduate from the third grade.

  25. and fox news is trying to force everyone to accept their narrow minded view of the world and religious and political freedoms.
