Homophobe Richard Land Links LGBT Rights With Nazi Persecution - LISTEN

Former Southern Baptist Convention official Richard Land, referring to President Obama’s executive order providing protections for LGBT employees of federal contractors, told the Family Research Council’s Washington Watch that conservatives need to stand up to “the gay thought police” or face Nazi-style persecution, reports Right Wing Watch.

Richard landSpeaking with Land, homophobic Fox News correspondent Todd Starnes said that Obama’s executive order is “mocking and condescending” towards religion because opposing discrimination is incompatible with religious values.

Later in the show, a caller said that she didn’t understand “how seemingly intelligent people could have voted a president in by the name of Barack Obama so soon after 9/11.” Rather than addressing the caller’s racist comments, Land went on to say that Obama has an anti-American worldview and is to blame for everything from the war on drugs to Boko Haram’s kidnapping of girls in Nigeria.

Land, who stepped down from the Southern Baptist Convention following controversial comments he made about Trayvon Martin, is currently the president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Fox News' Todd Starnes: Obama ‘Hell-bent’ on Forcing Christians to Accept ‘Militant’ LGBT Agenda

Todd starnes

Fox News correspondent Todd Starnes has never been a fan of gay rights. After all, the advancement of LGBT civil equality has effectively ruined sports and the Grammys for him and has even led to the ‘religious persecution’ of saintly, anti-gay Christians like Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson.

ObamaAnd so it comes as no surprise that Starnes wasn’t too pleased with President Obama’s executive order barring discrimination against LGBT people employed by federal contractors, calling it the latest sign that the Obama administration is “hell-bent on forcing Christians to assimilate to the militant LGBT agenda”

For his latest column over at Foxnews.com, Starnes gathers quotes from some notable anti-gay talking heads including Family Research Council’s Peter Sprigg and First Baptist Church in Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress to reinforce the point made in his comically aweful new book that Obama ultimately “believes gay rights trump everyone else’s rights – including religious rights”

The piece is basically just one big, nutty meltdown, but if you care to read it you can do so here


Todd Starnes: 'Religious Persecution' of Christians Will End in 'Civil Disobedience' - VIDEO

Starnes

Frequent Fox News talking head Todd Starnes is talking, yet again, about the plight of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson and his ilk. Christians like Robertson, says Starnes, are growing weary of being persecuted for their religious beliefs, and are likely to begin retaliating in the near future.

Rather than merely throwing support behind Robertson, who came under intense media fire last winter after making racist and homophobic remarks, Starnes sat down with Heritage of Truth to warn of the wave of oncoming Christian civil disobedience.

 

“Rick Warren told me that this issue, religious liberty, is going to be the civil rights issue of our generation,” He explained to Jeanne Dennis. “During the civil rights movement there were acts of civil disobedience, people were marching in the streets for their rights. I suspect we’re going to see that in our lifetime.”

Starnes rounded out the segment with a generous serving of right-wing histrionics, linking feminism and First Lady Obama’s Let’s Move initiative back to a supposed governmental plot to destroy the American family.

Gays Have Ruined Sports For Fox News Contributor Todd Starnes

Todd Starnes

Todd Starnes is very, very sad. After seeing gay weddings in the Rose Bowl Parade, the various outpourings of support for gay Olympians and condemnations of Russia's abominable laws, having a meltdown over the Grammy weddings, and now with Michael Sam daring to come out as an openly gay football player, sports have been ruined for Starnes forever.

Said Starnes, in part, on Facebook:

I should’ve learned my lesson after the Rose Bowl Parade and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

It’s all about advancing a cultural agenda — no matter the cost.

We are no longer allowed to have fun and enjoy sports or entertainment programs. How sad.

"Advancing a cultural agenda"...said without a trace of irony from the man who lied that Colorado high schoolers have been banned from celebrating America, falsely claimed that a VA hospital in Dallas forbade Christmas cards, and engaged in vile fear-mongering tactics by asserting that Obama is going to turn the U.S. military against Christians.

Hemant Mehta at Patheos sums up Starnes' complaint rather nicely:

I guess he wants an NFL where only straight players get to tackle each other and slap each other on the ass and an Olympics where only straight athletes get to participate in the two-man luge.


Fox News Contributor Todd Starnes Has Twitter Meltdown Over Grammy Weddings

Todd Starnes Twitter freakout

For those who were watching last night, the 34 gay weddings officiated by Queen Latifah at the Grammys was a groundbreaking event.

StarnesHaters will hate, as they often do, but Fox News religion "reporter" Todd Starns - who accused Duck Dynasty protesters of being "anti-straight" - just about blew a gasket and proceeded to have a very public freak-out on Twitter. In addition to sounding like grandpa on the porch complaining about this "rock and/or roll" noise and throwing a fair amount of slut-shaming:

He proceeded to completely lose it when the gay weddings came on: 

When a man whose views are so vile that even other Christian bloggers call him out for being a liar, one really can't help but indulge in some schadenfreude.


FOX News Reporter Defends 'Duck Dynasty' Star from Attacks by 'Anti-Straights'

P_robertson

FOX News reporter Todd Starnes defended Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson today after Robertson's anti-gay remarks in GQ began making headlines, Media Matters reports.

StarnesSaid Starnes on Twitter:

Intolerant, Anti-Straight groups are targeting Duck Dynasty ... Mainstream Media STUNNED to find out that Duck Dynasty staff believes in the teachings of the Bible...It was only a matter of time before intolerant, anti-Christian haters targeted Duck Dynasty...Shouldn't Americans be allowed to hold personal beliefs -- even if you don't agree with them?...The Mainstream Media and militant gay rights groups will try to destroy Duck Dynasty. Just watch....At what point do all these bigots demand that the Bible be outlawed because of what it says about "you know what"?

In addition to comparing homosexuality to sex with animals, Robertson also said homosexuals would be going to hell like drunks and terrorists, adding:

“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

Media Matters writes, of Starnes:

Starnes is one of Fox News' most rabid purveyors of homophobia. He has urged fans to donate to anti-gay hate groups, endorsed anti-LGBT business discrimination, promoted the conspiracy theory that President Obama is secretly gay, and blamed "heterophobic bigots" for the withdrawal of an anti-gay pastor from Obama's inaugural ceremony. While Starnes is keen to malign supporters of LGBT equality as "intolerant" "bigots," his history of hateful commentary exposes his virulent bigotry.
