Pat Robertson 'Disgusted' By Courts Attacking Christians: VIDEO

Pat Robertson

On Monday the Seventh Circuit Court ruled that Milwaukee, Wisconsin's Elmbrook School District could not hold its graduation ceremonies at an evangelical Christian church. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy justified the ruling by stating that while adults are free to leave the room in social settings when they encounter disagreeable speech, students at a graduation are a captive audience and that holding a public school graduation at a church violates the Constitution. The school district appealed and the Supreme Court ultimately declined to hear the appeal.

Cue Pat Robertson and his entitled, crazy indignation that somehow links it all to homosexuality because of course he does. Said Robertson:

The American people wouldn’t have voted in homosexuality, but the courts did; the American people wouldn’t have voted in same-sex marriage, but the courts did; the American people wouldn’t have given up on the Ten Commandments and prayer in schools, but the courts insisted on it. A few unelected judges, just a few, have distorted the history of our nation to give us something that we never intended to have, and something has got to be done about it.

Save California's Randy Thomasson Says Marriage Equality Is Form Of Slavery: AUDIO

ThomassonDespite sounding like a setup for that terrible joke of wedding rings being the world's smallest handcuffs, leader of hate group Save California Randy Thomasson took to right-wing talk show host Janet Mefferd's show to compare marriage equality to slavery. Said Thomasson:

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.

As always, every word of this is a lie. No one is denying his general freedom, his freedom of speech (which is why he was allowed to speak on the radio show without government persecution), or his freedom of religion (which is why he is still allowed to be a Christian). Additionally, saying one cannot oppress others is not itself oppression.

California Pastor's Advice to Parent: Shun Your Gay Child and Turn Him Over to Satan - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-06-12 at 3.44.36 PM

Popular pastor/radio host John MacArthur of the Grace Community Church in LA’s San Fernando Valley has some choice advice for any parent of a gay kid – show them Christian love by shunning them and turning them “over to Satan.”

Said MacArthur:

“If they profess to be a Christian, you have to alienate them. You have to separate them. You can’t condone that. It’s inconsistent with Christ. So you isolate them, you don’t have a meal with them, you separate yourself from them. You turn them over to Satan as it were as scripture says”

And if your gay kid happens to not be Christian, MacArthur suggests you to “bring the Gospel compassionately, directly, confrontationally to expose that sin and all other sins and call that person to salvation.”

Oklahoma Tea Party Candidate Thinks Gays Should Be Stoned to Death: VIDEO

EskA tea-party candidate for the Oklahoma State House District 91 is in the news today for controversial statements made on social media in support of Old Testament-style punishment for homosexuality.

Scott Esk, who prides himself on being “100% Traditional Family Values,” started throwing out Bible verses on Facebook last July after a friend posted a link to an article about Pope Francis saying “Who am I to judge gay people?”

Esk quotes Leviticus 20:13, the “if a man who lies with a man they shall be put to death” verse, adding that “If men wink at such perversions, God may have no choice than to judge such nations with calamities.”

When asked by the friend to clarify if he really thought gays should be put to death by stoning, Esk responds:

“I think we would be totally in the right to do it. That goes against some parts of libertarianism, I realize, and I’m largely libertarian, but ignoring things that are worthy of death is very remiss.”

And in a follow-up interview with The Moore Daily yesterday, Esk made it clear his views haven’t changed. You can listen to that interview, HERE.

GOP Candidate Ray Moore Warns Of 'Holocaust' From Teaching Evolution & Homosexuality: AUDIO

Ray Moore

South Carolina GOP lieutenant governor candidate Ray Moore is shoring up his conservative bona fides by claiming that schools are pushing a "silent holocaust" against churches and Christianity by teaching evolution and protecting LGBT students from abuse. While speaking with conservative talk show host Steve Deace, Moore said,

80 percent of Southern Baptists youths are leaving the church and abandoning the Christian faith, and we think all of this is pretty much attributable to government schooling. We think the main culprit is public schooling. So there’s a holocaust, a silent holocaust going on in our evangelical churches.

And thus was Godwin's Law invoked and Moore immediately lost the argument. Undeterred by the utter insanity of comparing dropping attendance rates in churches to the wholesale slaughter of almost 6 million Jews in one of the greatest ethnic cleansing movements of the 20th century, Moore continued by comparing gay marriage to a virus:

[S]o why is same-sex marriage and abortion and all of these viruses latching on to our society so readily? And we think part of it is government-sponsored education where they’re thoroughly and aggressively teaching socialism, humanism; turning their hearts away from Christ.

Right-wing Extremist Benham Twins Closing In On New TV Deal: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-05-10 at 9.33.10 AM

David and Jason Benham, the would-be HGTV hosts whose show was canceled this week by the network after Right Wing Watch wrote a lengthy post about their family's anti-gay, anti-choice, and anti-Muslim extremism, are reportedly in discussions to bring their show to another network.

The brothers spoke with Eric Bolling yesterday on The O’Reilly Factor about their thoughts on being dumped by HGTV and revealed they already have a few new network offers for their show.

FAITH_DRIVEN_CONSUMER_LOGO_TMThe Hollywood Reporter adds that the brothers are working on the alternative plans with help from Faith Driven Consumer, the advocacy group that played a big role in drumming up support for Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson after his own anti-gay remarks led to a (temporary) suspension from his hit A&E show.  

“We are brokering a possible deal between them and their show and an alternative network to HGTV,” said Faith Driven Consumer founder Chris Stone, who declined to say which network the brothers are in discussions with. “Whether it’s HGTV or the network we’re talking about, we want to see them on TV.”

The group has launched a petition drive in support of the Behnams that so far boasts over 12,000 signatures.
