On Saturday, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal headlined an all-day prayer rally at Louisiana State University in an effort to drum up evangelical support for a potential 2016 bid for the White House. 

The Response, as the prayer rally was called, was hosted by the rabidly anti-gay American Family Association and featured various self-proclaimed prophets, doomsday sayers, and other assorted religious nuts as Right Wing Watch points out

The LSU community, which had repeatedly denounced the event in the lead up to this Saturday, showed up to protest the event, the AP reports:

"You've heard today is not about political speeches. Today is about humbling ourselves before the Lord. Today we repent for our sins," he said. [...]

RallyOutside the prayer event, critics held a protest, saying the American Family Association, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has classified as a hate group, promotes discrimination against people who are gay or of non-Christian faiths.

Protesters accused Jindal of using the rally for political gain.

"I just knew this wasn't what LSU stands for. These aren't LSU values, Louisiana values or American values," said Peter Jenkins, a 26-year-old graduate student and protest organizer.

Jindal hasn't commented directly on the views of the American Family Association, which has linked same-sex marriage and abortion to disasters such as tornadoes and Hurricane Katrina.

On Friday, Rachel Maddow devoted a segment of her show to highlighting one of the crazier backers of The Response - Cindy Jacobs. You'll recall Jacobs as the woman who claims to have a direct line to God and that God has given her special powers - such as the ability to predict natural disasters and raise people from the dead.

Bigot Larry Tomczak Recommends 'I Love Lucy' To Deflect Anderson Cooper's Nasty Child-Focused Gay-Rays: VIDEO

6a00d8341c730253ef01a73d896593970d-800wi

File this one under batshit crazy: “Christian” author Larry Tomczak has warned parents against a television “tsunami” aimed at promoting homosexuality to the American public.

Last year, Larry claimed that God punishes gay people by making gay men more effeminate and lesbians more "mannish."

06d2d06d9dbafd844ef9604d469c74c7According to Gay Star News, in a column on the Christian Post Tomczak argued that shows like Glee and Modern Family “promote” homosexuality (Ellen DeGeneres and Anderson Cooper are also to blame) and LGBT rights groups “have multimillion-dollar budgets and work aggressively to convince Americans that homosexuality is a beautiful way of life – maybe for your child or grandchild?”

Not mentioned is the multimillion dollar anti-gay industry spearheaded by the likes of Scott Lively and Matt Barber.

However, parents worried that Anderson Cooper might send magic gay waves through the plasma screen needn’t worry because Tomczak has a solution - kids should only be allowed to watch shows from a bygone era before positive depictions of gay people:

“Purchasing wholesome DVD series and streaming selected programs are great alternatives.

The Fugitive, Gunsmoke, Little House on the Prairie, I Love Lucy and other award-winning shows are all available and cheap. My son has two adopted young boys who are growing up with Wally, Larry Mondello, Eddie Haskell and the Beaver and can't wait till the next episode!”

What are the boys watching when dad’s not around, Larry?

To help sort through the many similarities, MSNBC's The Ed Show has put together a montage of some of the more outrageous 2014 moments in religious nuttery from the two Robertsons for your viewing pleasure.

Matt Barber: 'Non-Discrimination Policies Are Discriminatory Against Christians'

Screen Shot 2014-12-31 at 1.23.10 PM

Matt Barber is outraged after San Jose State University's InterVarsity Christian Fellowship chapter lost its' status as an officially recognized campus organization after refusing to comply with the school's non-discrimination policies reports Right Wing WatchBarber went so far as to say on the Faith and Freedom radio program that not allowing Christians to discriminate against gays is, itself, discrimination against Christians.

Said Barber:

"It's an excuse to discriminate against Christians ... That's all it is and it's stupid. It's just plain stupid. Imagine going to the African American organization on your campus and saying that you have to allow an open, avowed white supremacist as the leader of this African American organization, maybe a student branch of the NAACP. That is no different than what we are talking about here, but because it's Christians, and this is the truth, really the last group here in the United States that is fair game, that is an open target for discrimination such as this are Christians."

You can listen to Barber's nonsense, if you can stomach it, AFTER THE JUMP...

Indiana Anti-Gay Church Pastor Accused of Grabbing Man's Genitals, Soliciting Oral Sex: VIDEO

Pastor

Gaylard Williams, the pastor at the Praise Cathedral Church of God in Seymour, Indiana, has been accused of making sexual advances on a man and been charged with battery, reports WLKY.com.

Williams (59) appeared at the Jackson County Superior Court on Tuesday.

According to court documents, the pastor approached a 27-year-old man at his vehicle parked at a lake, grabbed and squeezed his genitals and requested that he perform oral sex.

Williams allegedly left the scene after the victim acted like he was reaching for a gun. Police later found gay pornography in the pastor’s car.

According to 'Church of God' beliefs, homosexuality is a sin, also, "We will engage in those activities which glorify God in our body and which avoid the fulfillment of the lust of the flesh." And of course, marriage is between a man and a woman.

Right-Wing Extremist Asks Gay Bakeries to Make Hate Cake In A Failed Attempt to Highlight Hypocrisy: VIDEO

Shoebat

Theodore Shoebat, the son of right-wing activist Walid Shoebat, put on his muckracking boots recently in a failed attempt to show how hypocritical LGBT supporters can be when it comes to the subject of bakers making food items that seemingly violate their beliefs.

You'll recall anti-gay bakers in Oregon, Colorado, and elsewhere have made headlines this year for refusing to bake wedding cakes for same-sex couples. Shoebat attempted to flip the script on this by calling up 13 pro-LGBT bakeries and asking for them to make a "pro-traditional marriage" cake that says "Gay marriage is wrong". All 13, as you can imagine, refused to bake the hate cake, with many owners noticeably frustrated that an individual would want such a cake. 

Of course, one can reasonably assume all of these bakers would have happily baked a wedding-themed dessert for any couple - gay or otherwise. It's the bigoted Christian-owned bakeries that are doing the discriminating - as they only seem interested in selling wedding cakes to the hetero crowd. 

Watch Shoebat's silly exposé, AFTER THE JUMP...(warning: language)

Last December, when the Duck Dynasty controversy was in full swing, Shoebat railed against the "Sodomite nazis" who went after patriach Phil Robertson "simply because he pointed out a truth to the darkness of the sick, violent, and twisted mindset of homosexuals".

Wrote Shoebat then [via Right Wing Watch] -

What the homosexuals want to do to Christians in America is what Muslims are already doing to Christians: slaughter and enslave them. This is why we must fight this evil, and help save persecuted Christians in the Muslim world. Donate now and save Christian lives.

The sodomites, the purest haters of all that is just and godly, immediately went for the attack ... The only thing vile in this situation is what sodomites contrive and partake in, they indulge themselves in acts so diabolical, in things worthy of death” (Romans 1:32), and yet we are so careful to make sure that they are tolerated. The sodomite just quoted spoke of “loving and committed gay and lesbian couples.” Really? Let me show you how sinister these morally inept and demonic followers of Satan are.

Shoebat has also called on gays to be put to death and to "outlaw the sodomite before he outlaws you."
