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...

Anti-gay Evangelicals File Brief Asking Supreme Court to Uphold Utah's Same-Sex Marriage Ban

Temple

The group of five prominent, anti-gay religious organizations have joined together in a friend-of-the-court brief asking the Supreme Court to take up Utah's same-sex marriage case and uphold a state's right to deny gay couples the freedom to marry. 

The five organizations are:

  • U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops
  • National Association of Evangelicals
  • The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
  • The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
  • The Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod

The brief states, in part:

Marriage between a man and a woman is for us an article of faith and a profound social good. Our understanding of God’s law, fortified by experience, confirms the centrality of marriage between aman and a woman as a foundational institution for protecting children and sustaining the American scheme of ordered liberty. And our understanding of the limits of judicial authority under the Fourteenth Amendment leads us to conclude that laws reaffirming that ancient yet vibrant understanding are constitutional. [...]

And because marriage is not just a legal status but also a proxy for social and legal legitimacy, corollary issues are arising with increasing intensity. Will sexual orientation be recognized as the basis for a new suspect class akin to race, thus providing government with purportedly compelling reasons to override long-standing religious freedoms? If so, what statutory protections and exemptions should religious organizations seek to ensure their independence from State control and guard against retaliation? What exactly are the rights of organizations and individuals with sincerely-held religious objections to participating in, facilitating, or recognizing same-sex marriage?

Check out the brief in full AFTER THE JUMP to see all the other bigoted reasons for denying LGBT people equal treatment under the law...

Pat Robertson: Possibly Gay Teen Would Be Straight If He Had 'Male Companions' - VIDEO

Robertson

One of Pat Robertson’s 700 Club viewers recently wrote in asking for the right-wing-nut’s advice because her 13-year-old step-son “who lives with his mother most of the time” has “crushes on boys.” Robertson made sure to respond with the tried-and-true myth favored by ring-wing crazies that this boy, like all homosexuals, has attraction “toward other men because he’s raised by a woman.” Right Wing Watch reports: 

“I would get him male companions, I’d get him some man to help him, some mentor, someone who cares about young men,” Robertson advised. “He is being raised by a single woman and that is skewing his orientation.”

Rabid Anti-Gay Pastor Rafael Cruz To Receive Award At Hate Group Gala - VIDEO

Rafael cruz

At the upcoming Vision America “Heroes of Faith Gala,”  - a gathering of some of the most hateful anti-gay activists in the U.S. - Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is set to collect the “Don Wildmon Award” on behalf of his father Rafael Cruz, reports Right Wing Watch. The award is named for the founder of the American Family Association.

GalaTony Perkins, the leader of anti-gay hate group Family Research Council, is will receive the 2014 “National Hero of Faith Award” at the same event.

Back in June, we reported that Right Wing Watch had compiled a treasure trove of video footage of Cruz senior spouting off about everything from the evils of evolution, to his belief that Obama thinks he's God and Satan controls the government, to his assertion that gays stole the word "gay" and endanger children.

In the same month, Senator Cruz stoked religious fears that gay rights will soon lead to new hate speech laws and will force pastors to perform same-sex nuptials.

Vision America is run by rabid homophobe Rick Scarborough who earlier this month said that it is a miracle that god has not destroyed the U.S. since President Barack Obama started appointing gay ambassadors.

Harlem Hate Pastor: Putin Is Getting Ready To Out President Obama - VIDEO

Manning

Pastor James David Manning of Harlem’s All The Land Anointed Holy (ATLAH) Missionary Church has looked into the future and seen that Vladimir Putin or "someone from within the Russian government" will out President Obama as a gay man within the next 100 days. It is unclear at this time whether Manning used a crystal ball to “prognosticate” this event. Manning’s comments were made in a YouTube video, as The Independent reports:

"I want to prognosticate today that 100 days from this very hour… Either Vladimir Putin himself or one of his assistants or someone within the Russian government will call Mr Long-Legged Mac Daddy, will call him an outright gay, pervert, homosexual, sodomite,” he alleges in the video below.

"This will happen within 100 days," he said. "We’re starting the countdown today. Tomorrow, obviously, will be 99 days before it will actually take place.”

Manning has a history of vitriolic and baseless attacks against the LGBT community, advocating for the stoning of gays, suggesting Obama is behind a plot to unleash gay "homo demons" on black men, and deeming "faggot" an acceptable term. He has also alleged that basketball player Reggie Love is the President’s secret lover. He made sure to bring up this subject in his latest video, sharing a (clearly imagined) conversation between Love and Obama:

"'Why don’t you set the sodomy community – the homosexual mafia – free?'" he claims Love asked Obama. "'Why don’t you leave five year old boys and girls free to pursue a sexual identity that is condemned by the Bible?' And the Mac Daddy wouldn’t do it.”

Most recently, Manning’s ATLAH church took to its marquee (one of the church's favorite ways of spreading hate) to yet again condemn gays and all those who support them: “All churches & members that support homos cursed be thou with cancer HIV syphilis stroke madness itch then hell 1 Cor. 6:9” — a very creative if inaccurate translation of Corinthians.

Harlem Atlah Church Has New Message Of Anti-Gay Christian Hate

Harlem Altah Hate Church Sign

I really, really don't think that anyone at the Atlah Church in Harlem has actually read the Bible. The verse referenced above in their new marquee, 1 Corinthians 6:9, just states that bad people don't go to heaven.

While a great many people interpret the verse as a condemnation of gays and lesbians, it doesn't wish harm on them nor curse them with horrible debilitating diseases. It's particularly peculiar that they invoke the same ill will on those who love and support sinners given Jesus himself said the second greatest commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself

So, either pastor James David Manning of the Harlem Hate Church has some self-esteem issues, or just simply isn't interested in the actual message of that long-haired socialist hippie he claims to worship.
