Glenn Beck: Elect Gohmert Speaker of the House to Save America - VIDEO

BECK

Bastion of enlightened thinking Glenn Beck is urging Republicans to call on their members of Congress to vote for Rep. Louie Gohmert as Speaker of the House now that Gohmert has announced he is challenging Rep. John Boehner for his party's top leadership post in the House of Representatives reports Right Wing Watch:

“Louie is not going to compromise, Louie is the guy. We have another chance, America, we have another chance. Please don’t pass this signpost, please, there’s another exit, take it,” Beck said on his show today, adding that conservatives should consider themselves “done with the Republican Party” if Boehner secures re-election.

“Shut the switchboard down, tell everybody you know in the freedom movement, ‘Louie Gohmert.’ Call them now,” he said.

You may recall Gohmert's previous remarks comparing gay rights advocates to Nazis as well as his concern about gay massages in the military that notably (and hilariously) landed him in the cross-hares of comedian Stephen Colbert.

Rep. Louie Gohmert Announces Bid to Replace John Boehner As House Speaker: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2015-01-04 at 2.14.01 PM

Louie Gohmert, the Texas congressman who is a little too familiar with the sex lives of caribou and thinks gays are unfit for military service because massages from their lovers makes them "vulnurable to terrorism," announced today his plan to unseat John Boehner as Speaker of the House of Representatives. 

Fox News reports:

BoehnerGohmert, among the House Republican caucus’ most conservative members, made the announcement on “Fox and Friends,” saying he decided to run after Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., said Saturday that he would challenge Boehner for the chamber’s top post.

“We have heard from a lot of Republicans that said, ‘I would vote for somebody besides speaker Boehner.’ But nobody will put their name out there,” Gohmert said. “That changed yesterday with Ted Yoho.”

Gohmert also hinted that another House member will announce a challenge to Boehner on Sunday.

Boehner once again returns to Capitol Hill amid challenges to keep his post, largely from the conservative members who most recently say he caved in by agreeing last month to a $1.1 trillion temporary federal spending bill, which averted another partial government shutdown.

Group members complained in part because they think Boehner did not try to punish President Obama enough for sidestepping Congress on immigration reform.

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...

Billionaire GOP Donor David Koch on Supporting Candidates Who Oppose Gay Marriage: 'That's Their Problem' - VIDEO

Koch

David Koch, one-half of the billionaire Koch Borthers who have pumped hundreds of millions of dollars into conservative causes and candidates over the years, sat down with Barbara Walters for her "10 Most Fascinating People of 2014" special and discussed his political philosophy - being a "conservative on economic matters" but a "social liberal."

When Walters brought up the fact that although Koch is pro-choice and backs gay marriage, many of the candidates he supports are not, Koch brushes it off saying "that's their problem" and that economic concerns are more important to him. 

You're right Koch, that is "their problem". But since those d-bags are in charge of making laws, it ends up being our problem too...

Michele Bachmann's 'Ex-Gay' Client Comes Out As Gay: 'In the End, My Sexuality is a Beautiful Gift from God'

The bad news keeps on coming for the ailing, harmful “ex-gay” movement.  

SchizzelFollowing a number of recent high profile announcements from former “ex-gay” activists attacking “conversion therapy” and a ban on the practice in Washington, D.C., Religion News Service is carrying an interview with “conversion therapy” survivor Christian Schizzel who lays bare his experiences with Janet Boynes Ministries and GOP nuts Michele and Marcus Bachmann’s “counselling” services.

Christian “spent seven years being trotted around the country on media outlets as a poster boy for the ex-gay movement. Now, after reclaiming his gay identity, Christian says he won’t be a weapon anymore.”

To those still promoting the use of a harmful, hateful practice, Christian has this to say:

“I hope they realize this path leads to a horrid dead end. It’s harmful and excruciatingly painful. There’s no academic or spiritual basis for its promotion.

"I wouldn’t wish this upon anyone, not even the ones who harmed me the most in this life.

"In the end, my sexuality is a beautiful gift from God,  and every day, I have found, I have to make a choice to honor it in the straight man’s world.”

Bobby Jindal 'Prayer Guide' Blames Gays For Hurricane Katrina - VIDEO

6a00d8341c730253ef01a511b5b819970c-800wi

Louisiana Governor and anti-gay “Christian” nutjob Bobby Jindal is claiming in material for a prayer rally to kick off his possible presidential run that Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters are the result of god’s anger at gay people, reports Right Wing Watch.

Last month, Jindal spoke at an anti-equality, "pro-family" event in Dallas. He has also given anti-gay Duck Dynasty star Phil Roberston an award for Entrepreneurial Excellence.

Jindal is set to kick off the potential presidential campaign in January with a stadium prayer rally organized by anti-gay groups and individuals including listed hate group the American Family Association.

It would appear that Jindal’s campaign is being closely modeled on Rick Perry’s disastrous 2012 run for president. Organizers are actually reusing material from Perry’s 2011 prayer rally in Texas that blame natural disasters on gay people, marriage equality, legal abortion and Internet pornography. 6a00d8341c730253ef01a511ba7967970c-800wi

The prayer guide for the rally also appears to be exactly the same as the guide distributed to participants in Perry’s 2011 event.  As Right Wing Watch points out, the materials have not “even been updated to include the increased number of states that are bringing God’s judgment on America by allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry.”

The prayer guide includes the following nuggets of “Christian” wisdom:

“We have watched sin escalate to a proportion the nation has never seen before. We live in the first generation in which the wholesale murder of infants through abortion is not only accepted but protected by law. Homosexuality has been embraced as an alternative lifestyle. Same-sex marriage is legal in six states and Washington, D.C. Pornography is available on demand through the internet.

“Biblical signs of apostasy are before our very eyes. While the United States still claims to be a nation 'under God' it is obvious that we have greatly strayed from our foundations in Christianity.

“This year we have seen a dramatic increase in tornadoes that have taken the lives of many and crippled entire cities, such as Tuscaloosa, AL & Joplin, MO. And let us not forget that we are only six years from the tragic events of hurricane Katrina, which rendered the entire Gulf Coast powerless.”
