Virginia Students Show Homophobic Preacher The True Meaning Of Christianity - VIDEO

Ross jackson

Reminding the world that not all Christians are focused solely on hatred for their fellow man, a homophobic preacher who appeared on the campus of James Madison University, Harrisonburg, Virginia earlier this week had his hateful speech drowned out by students with a Christian message of peace and love, reports Huffington Post.

According to witnesses, Ross Jackson, who is the founder of Revival Mission Ministries, launched into sermons condemning a variety of "sinful acts," including homosexuality, drinking alcohol and listening to country music.

He is also reported to have yelled “all homos are going to hell” at a crowd gathered at one of the talks.

However, students at the university were not willing to allow Jackson to get away with his hate-speech. Student-journalist Lauren Hunt live-tweeted the preacher’s appearances, noting his arrogant approach to student opinions.  Other attendees brought rainbow-colored flags and protest signs, while one group of students stood in full view of Jackson to sing Christian hymns about love, drowning out his words.

According to Hunt, Jackson called the singers and guitar player a "pervert leader and his band of followers." However, Hunt tweeted “the students' singing has overpowered the voice of the preacher.”

According to the university’s newspaper, Jackson was forced to leave the college campus Wednesday after he was issued a police summons for assault and battery, as well as a no trespass notice.

Gordon Klingenschmitt Warns Christians Are Being Forced To 'Worship Sodomy' - VIDEO

Gordon Klingenschmitt

Colorado Republican Gordon Klingenschmitt has warned followers that New York is “literally...banning Christian worship” following a ruling earlier this year that a venue in the state discriminated against a lesbian couple by declining a booking for their wedding, reports Right Wing Watch.

In August, the New York State Division of Human Rights affirmed the state's Human Rights Law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in the case of Melisa and Jennifer McCarthy, a lesbian couple whose 2012 request to marry at an Albany area farm and wedding venue was turned down after owners found out they were a same-sex couple.  

In an email sent last Saturday to members of his Pray In Jesus Name Project, Klingenschmitt, who recently suggested that Colorado Congressman Jared Polis will “join ISIS in beheading Christians,” said that the New York court told the owners of the Liberty Ridge venue that they “cannot worship Christ during a wedding, unless they also worship and participate equally in sodomy in their own home.”

Klingenschmitt continued:

“Christians are fined $13,000 and may no longer celebrate the Christian sacrament of marriage in their own home, unless they also host lesbian weddings. Literally the court is banning Christian worship, saying these Christian farmers cannot worship Christ during a wedding, unless they also worship and participate equally in sodomy in their own home. They are now coming into our homes, and dictating our worship. This unconstitutional policy, to punish Christians (with no religious exemptions) will be law in all 50 states, if ENDA is passed.”

Watch a video from last year in which Klingenschmitt claims that a "demonic spirit of tyranny" is trying to force Christians "at the point of the government sword" to participate in the "sin of sodomy," AFTER THE JUMP...

Family Research Council Thinks the Religious Right Should Be More Like the LGBT Equality Movement: AUDIO

On last week's Family Research Council radio program, FRC Assistant to the President Craig James spoke with Josh Duggar (Kid #1 of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting) about the success of the LGBT equality movement and how the religious right really should start taking cues from gay advocates in regards to organizational techniques.

Craig jamesSaid James:

“I think what we are finding here, Josh, is that there’s a small percent of folks who are really organized and they are absolutely diligent in their task to silence us or to win their way. It’s like in the LGBT community, it’s out recently that the number of proclaimed gays in this country is like 3.3 percent, but it feels like 30 percent, so getting organized and rallying and calling and writing is absolutely critical to helping all of us succeed in this fight.”

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

American Decency Association to Protest Outside Cowboys Stadium Over Michael Sam Joining Team

Sam

The American Decency Association, an evangelical advocacy organization that opposes alleged pornographic and vulgar media content, is planning an anti-gay demonstration outside the AT&T Stadium in Dallas this Sunday to protest the Cowboys signing Michael Sam to its practice squad

Texas station CBS 11 reports:

Jack Burkman heads the group which claims to have 3.62 million members in 41 states. Burkman says, “We cannot just stand idly by as Christian values and morals are trampled. We will do whatever we can to preserve family values in this country.”

The station also fielded reactions from local sports fans about Sam joining the team, with some predictably homophobic responses. 

Some callers to 105.3 The Fan made verbal tackles against Sam. One caller said, “I don’t want my kids looking up to me and say Daddy, what does that mean that he’s gay?” But other fans say with the Cowboy‎’s weak defense, they may need Michael Sam’s strengths. “If he can use the speed to get around the corner and get to the quarterback, hey, that’s all we need.” 

The ADA, you might recall, is the same organization that claimed Satan was behind Honey Maid's pro-gay "This is Wholesome" tv ad back in March. The group joined with other anti-gay bigots in boycott of the graham cracker company - which ultimately led to this awesome response from Honey Maid. 

UPDATE: Readers have tipped us about the CBS affiliate in Dallas being fed misleading information from anti-gay lobbyist Jack Burkman, as the original story has been taken down online. Additionally, the American Decency Association has a post up on their website saying that while they are totally opposed to Michael Sam's "lifestyle," they are not the bigots behind the protest. 


Wingnut Bryan Fischer: Diversity Is Crippling The U.S. - VIDEO

Bryan fischer

Anti-gay activist Bryan Fischer has taken to the website for his hate group American Family Association to argue that diversity is crippling the U.S.

Fischer is well known for his virulent - and regular - homophobic views.  In recent weeks, he has said that all LGBT people should be banned from public office, that god is disgusted when he looks at gay sex, and that Burger King’s Proud Burger will be a disaster for for the company because people do not want to have to think of two men having sex when they sit down to eat a hamburger. Chelsea Manning

In his latest outburst, Fischer asserts that the U.S. became the greatest nation in the world because of “an unshakable commitment to common core values and standards” and that the acceptance of diversity “fractures, debilitates, and diffuses.”

Alluding to transitioning transgender wikileaker Chelsea Manning, he continues:

“The strength of our military has not been its diversity but its unity, indeed its uniformity. Soldiers wear the same uniform, not uniforms of their own imaginations. They serve one nation, not many, salute one flag, not many, and follow one commander-in-chief, not many.”

Not content with transphobia, he goes on to say that immigrants are only welcome in the U.S. “if they embrace [Christian] fundamental values and are willing to become Americans rather than hyphenated Americans.”

Of course, same-sex marriage - not very subtly linked with profanity, fidelity, murder and theft - is also out, in Fischer’s version of Christianity:

“We recognized the importance of language that was free from profanity. We recognized the importance of honoring parents. We affirmed the importance of marriage as the union of one man and one woman and stressed the importance of fidelity to the marriage covenant. We treated murder as a capital crime, punished theft, and punished perjury.”

The group’s 40 Days of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance For Marriage started on August 27th and runs until October 5th, the day before the Supreme Court begins its next session and hears the first in a series of same-sex marriage appeals cases.

However, not wanting to expend too much energy on hatred, the group announced “we are asking the entire Body of Christ to join us for this feast – giving up physical food isn’t necessary – but feeding on the spiritual food provided is vital.”
