Anti-Gay Pastor's Column Located Next To Video Of Men Making Out


Anti-gay fundamentalist David Barton — a man who thinks the government should "regulate homosexuality" or else the nation will be brought to its knees — might be interested to know that his most recent column on Glenn Beck's website The Blaze has a video ad of two men kissing right next to it. The video, of course, is for HBO's new gay drama Looking.


Plus, Pastor Barton recommended Ben Hur as one of his fave holiday reads?! Isn't Ben Hur a little gay

David Barton Claims Gays Will Join The Military To Get Married: AUDIO

David Barton

Evangelical minister and founder of the dominionist organization WallBuilders David Barton spoke on WallBuilders Live about the death of DOMA, fearing that gays will now sign up for the US armed forces so that they can get married. Right Wing Watch quotes him as saying: 

“Now that there is no longer a definition of marriage as a man and a woman and DOMA’s struck down, guess what? Guess what happens in the military? Guess what is going to happen in the military? Guess who is going to enlist in the military just so they can have gay marriages and force chaplains to do that?”

While it is entirely possible that some gay couples might join the military just to take advantage of marriage benefits - the same way that some students sign up just to take advantage of the GI Bill to pay for college - it's more likely that couples would simply take a trip to Massachusetts or California. Both states reconize gay marriage and have no residency requirements to get married, compared to the 4 years or more of service that new recruits are contractually bound to when they enlist. Plus, they won't have to wait until completing bootcamp before being able to throw a bachelor party.

Evangelical Pastor to Christians: Don't Drink at Starbucks - VIDEO

Minister David Barton

"You can't drink Starbucks and be biblically right on this thing [marriage]. It's just a real simple principle," said David Barton, an evangelical pastor who is the former vice-chair of the Republican Party of Texas, during a service at Whitesburg Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama. 

Towleroad reported on David Barton last year when he claimed that America, as a nation, was "going down" for supporting same-sex marriage. 

The full quote, via RightWingWatch:

"Starbucks is pouring all this money into destroying tradtional marriage. The question is, can a Christian give money to a group he knows will use it to attack what God supports. If you know that when you buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks that 5, 10, 15 cents is going to be used to defeat marriage, can you do that? The answer is no. Biblically, there's no way a Christian can help support what is attacking God. I'm sorry, you've got to find some other coffee to drink. You can't drink Starbucks and be biblically right on this thing. It's just a real simple principle."

David Barton Thinks Gay Rights Mean U.S. 'Going Down': VIDEO


Conservative fundamentalist David Barton and televangelist Kenneth Copeland claimed this weekend that policies granting LGBT citizens equality will bring the nation to its knees.

Transcript, via RightWingWatch:

Copeland: I don’t care who you are, if you turn loose of God and the truth of God, you’re going down, brother! You can’t—it’s created that way; you can’t violate the way it was put together.

Barton: That is why public policies in a nation are so important. If a nation says, ‘hey, we want abortion, we want homosexual marriage,’ it is going down.

Copeland: It’s going down.

Barton: You have taken what God had up top and said ‘we’re not going to do that, we want to go in a different’—anytime you move away from what God says, you are going down as a nation.

Move over Hands Across America!

It's unclear if the men realize how their choice of words could be misinterpreted, but you can watch them lob that point back and forth AFTER THE JUMP.

Pastor Wants to Hang 'Bloody Scalps' of Pro-Equality NY GOP Senators 'Over the Senate Rail' as Warning to Others

Following an interview with NOM's Maggie Gallagher on his radio show Wallbuilders Live with co-host Rick Green earlier this week, Evangelical pastor and conservative activist David Barton came up with a rather graphic solution to making an example of the four NY GOP Senators who voted to pass marriage equality.

Barton Said Barton:

"No disrespect to our Native American friends, but this is where you hang a bloody scalp over the gallery rail. You hang these four Republican scalps over the Senate rail and every other Republican senator looks up and sees those scalps and says, ‘my gosh, I’ll be hanging up there beside them if I don’t stay with this pro-family stuff.’ And that’s exactly what has to happen."
