Mike Huckabee and Tony Perkins Worried Gay Marriage Will Rain Down ISIS Violence On Christians: LISTEN

Mick Huckabee

Mike Huckabee (above) has claimed that the supposed threat same-sex marriage will create for religious freedom is part of a broader attack that will include violence against Christians, reports Right Wing Watch.

Speaking during a conference call organized by hate group the Family Research Council (FRC), Huckabee agreed with a pastor who suggested that the U.S. is facing the threat of ISIS terrorist attacks and the “equally intense assault on marriage as defined by God.”

Huckabee replied to the panic-stricken pastor:

“We’re seeing, certainly at the national level, internally this battle on marriage, but globally what we’re seeing is that there is an assault on the Christian faith in general.”

Tony PerkinsHe continued that ISIS will soon “physically assault” American Christians.

Not to be outdone in the Game of Hate - I’m convinced it is in fact a game and Matt Baume’s recent exposé of FRC suggests the same - our old friend Tony Perkins (right) said that the fight for LGBT rights in the U.S. is linked to the murder of Christians by ISIS members in the Middle East.

“If we go silent on religious freedom here at home, I think that sends a message to the terrorists and the tyrants abroad that they are free to persecute our brothers and sisters in Christ. The other side is vocal and they sound like they are a lot more than they are but as a result they are winning battles that we should be winning.”

Bryan Fischer and Mike Huckabee Fantasize About The Military's Good Ol' DADT Days: VIDEO

Fischer_huckabee

Low troop morale? Blame Obama and the gays. Christians leaving the military? Blame Obama and the gays. At least, that's your train of thought if your founts of wisdom come in the forms of former AFA spokeshater Bryan Fischer and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Right Wing Watch reports Huckabee, who today revealed he will announce his presidential plans in Hope, Arkansas on May 5, said in an interview with Iowa talk radio host Jan Mickelson yesterday that the Obama administration has “an open hostility toward the Christian faith,” and urged prospective military recruits to wait until the end of President Obama’s term to enlist.

He continued:

"When you have a president whose administration orders its chaplains to put its Bibles away, not to pray in Jesus name, not to counsel people on the issues of sexual morality; when you have this attitude that is more about promoting gay marriage and gay rights in the military than it is about being able to protect religious liberty for those people of faith, it’s going to be hard to find people that are truly devoted people of faith and Christian believers and Orthodox Jews and others.”

Fisher, meanwhile, made the baseless claim that reports of the military's low morale can be directly linked to the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

Said Fischer:

"The reason the morale is low in the military is because it's become a giant, social engineering laboratory and values that are absolutely contrary to the military ethos, to the military culture, are being forced on members of the military - crammed down their throats whether they like it or not."

Mike Huckabee Says Friendly Call Between Obama And Michael Sam Is Sign Of America’s ‘Utter Collapse’

Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 2.28.17 PM

Mike Huckabee appeared at a "Family Leadership Regional Summit" in Iowa hosted by Bob Vander Plaats and The Family Leader. The potential GOP presidential candidate remarked that the fact President Obama telephoned Michael Sam after the football player came out is a sign of America’s "utter collapse," reports Right Wing Watch. Huckabee also decried boycotts against anti-gay businesses, calling it "economic terrorism."

Said Huckabee:

"The values that so many of us hold dear are values that are under assault today. I never believed that in such a short period of time, the culture in America would go into utter collapse. If you told me just a few years ago that one day the President of the United States would use his precious time in the Oval Office to call people up simply to congratulate them for being gay, I would say, 'No, surely he'll call a veteran and thank them for their service, for losing a limb or a leg,' but even when Chris Kyle was murdered, his widow didn't get a phone call, but a gay football player who came out did."

Huckabee punctuated his statements with warnings that religious liberty is under attack in America, specifically citing the boycott against Chick-Fil-A several years ago after the company donated millions to anti-gay groups.

Mike Huckabee Slams 'Phony' #RFRA Backlash, Says Gays Won't Stop Until There Are No More Churches: AUDIO

Appearing on hate group Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” on Wednesday, Mike Huckabee claimed that gay rights activists have turned the controversies surrounding ‘right to discriminate’ legislation in Arkansas and Indiana into a “phony crisis," reports Right Wing Watch.

Huckabee added that intolerant LGBT activism is like something out of George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984:

“It is a classic example of — really a page out of 1984, when what things mean are the opposite of what they really are. And that’s what I’m seeing here is that in the name of tolerance, there’s intolerance. In the name of diversity, there’s uniformity. In the name of acceptance, there’s true discrimination.”

Forgetting recent history, he went on to claim that unlike the gay community, conservative Christians would never boycott a business.

Host Tony Perkins in fairness interjected that he plans to boycott Walmart since the company is “taking a stand against religious freedom.”

Huckabee continued:

“There may come a day in which [Christian conservatives] realize how close they are to losing all of their freedoms. And maybe there will be a day in which every one of the believers of this nation, people of faith and even some people who aren’t necessarily Christian but they’re people of conscience and they’re people of fairness, and they’ll just say that we will have a national boycott of the following businesses, and let’s just see if they really feel that they are taking the right position.”

Ted Cruz: I'm The Biggest Anti-Gay Bigot In The 2016 GOP Presidential Field

Cruz.Ted

Facing intense competition for the anti-gay vote, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is aiming to set himself apart from the rest of the 2016 GOP presidential field. 

The Republican Primary promises to feature a healthy crop of truly formidable homophobes, from Rick Santorum to Mike Huckabee to Bobby Jindal to Ben Carson

But in a speech on Monday in Iowa, Cruz laid claim to the notion that he may be the No. 1 opponent of same-sex marriage. From The Des Moines Register

Cruz, R-Texas, described the ongoing shift toward legal recognition for gay couples as an "unrelenting assault on traditional marriage," and castigated judges who have struck down prohibitions for "ignoring their oaths, ignoring the Constitution and legislating from the bench."

The issue is one that Cruz said distinguishes him from other potential candidates in what looks to be a crowded 2016 presidential field. While others have de-emphasized or dropped altogether their opposition to same-sex marriage, he said, he would continue to make it a priority.

Cruz delivered his speech to a crowd of about 200 Iowa religious leaders and their spouses behind closed doors in a hotel ballroom in Des Moines. Although the American Renewal Project's "Pastors and Pews" event was closed to the press, reporters were able to hear and record Cruz's remarks from the corridor outside.

Cruz went on to call President Barack Obama "an apologist for radical Islamic terrorism." Also attending the event was Cruz's whacko father, Rafael Cruz, and it reportedly ended with attendees "laying hands" on the senator for an extended period. 

While it's truly scary that he's a US senator, let alone a presidential candidate, we're not going to argue with Cruz's claim about marriage, even though Huckabee or Santorum might have something to say. After all, Cruz is the author of legislation that would strip federal benefits from same-sex couples who live in states that don't recognize same-sex marriage, and he plans to introduce a federal marriage amendment later this year. 

The question is, while it may play well with social conservatives in Iowa, where Santorum won in 2012, will the anti-gay marriage card work in other early primary states like Nevada and New Hampshire, especially if the U.S. Supreme Court delivers nationwide marriage equality in June? Or will Cruz's campaign ultimately fizzle because he happens to be a total nutjob?
