Tony Perkins Warns Fascist Pro-Gay Christians Are Committing Heresy: VIDEO

Tony Perkins, the president of the hate group Family Research Council (FRC) has said Christians who make biblical arguments in favor of homosexuality are committing heresy, reports Right Wing Watch.

Frank BruniPerkins was reacting to a New York Times column by Frank Bruni (right) last weekend on the growing body of work arguing for Christian acceptance of homosexuality.

Arguing that the views of anti-gay groups are not shared by the majority of Christians, Bruni noted that “in the end, the continued view of gays, lesbians and bisexuals as sinners is a decision. It’s a choice. It prioritizes scattered passages of ancient texts over all that has been learned since — as if time had stood still, as if the advances of science and knowledge meant nothing.”

However, Perkins argued:

“Bruni grants no possibility that there is a rich, articulate, persuasive, and sound literature by Christian theologians demonstrating how clear and unchanging is the Bible's teaching on same-sex intimacy, marriage, and human sexuality in general.

"He is disinterested in such, and instead appeals to outliers like David Gushee and Matthew Vines. And in a particularly desperate move, he notes that the 'United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)' have all affirmed same-sex relationships.

"True, but these historic denominations are no longer mainstream. They are dying, becoming more like social clubs and liberal foundations than proclaimers of a faith delivered with clarity and finality, once for all.”

Perkins concluded with a (loving) stark warning for Bruni:

“We will not be ‘re-educated,’ nor will we be silent. We are not going away. We love you too much to affirm sin in any fashion. We condemn any vitriol you receive from those who, outraged by your dismissive and hostile column, call you names or worse. And we love you too much to reduce Christian faith to simply being ‘nice’ or affirming what the God of Creation and of the Bible says is un-affirmable.

“Sin is sin. Our sin. Your sin. God sets the standard, not us. His standard is not unclear or subjective or ambivalent.”

Rick Santorum Says He'll Make a Great President Since He Fought to Keep Gay Sex Illegal: VIDEO

Santorum

Speaking at a meeting with Iowa state legislators Wednesday, Rick Santorum said that his opposition to the 2003 Supreme Court decision striking down anti-gay “sodomy” bans is proof of his strength of leadership, reports Right Wing Watch.

Addressing the “media created” backlash against r'ight to discriminate' legislation in Indiana and Arkansas, Santorum stated:

“I go back 13 years to when I was in the Senate and stood up and said, ‘If the Supreme Court decides a case this way, then all these bad things are going to start happening.’ And I said we would have same-sex marriage in this country in ten years. I was wrong: it was five years. And I was put through a national wringer like no one had been put through and I have been put through over and over and over again because I am not going to back down from what I believe is the right course for our country.”

He added that he has been “fighting for the truth and not the perversion that we saw the media try to ram down the public’s throat about what Indiana and Arkansas were doing.”

Australian Conservatives Think This Ad for Maltesers Candy Will Turn People Gay: VIDEO

Maltesers

Australian TV viewers have made official complaints that an advert for Maltesers in which two men kiss promotes homosexuality, reports Business Insider.

The advert, which has been running without problems in the UK and other markets for years, portrays two heterosexual men snuggling up unawares while sleeping.

Complaints to Australia’s Advertising Standards Bureau (ASB) have accused the ad of encouraging young people to be gay and of ridiculing gay people.

One of the complaints reads:

"I find it very offensive that while I'm watching tv with my child that an ad with a man kiss another man to come on to try and sell chocolates just like smoking and drinking alcohol leads to young people to do these things I feel strong that advertising homosexuals is try to turn young people gay."

Another offended viewer wrote:

"The two women place their boyfriends in a sexual/suggestive position while they are asleep. They are seen to kiss. The two women then laugh at what they have done. This ad is offensive because it continues to perpetuate the idea that being gay or male closeness is something to be ridiculed and laughed at."

In response to the complaints, Maltesers owner Mars Confectionery said of the “playful” ad that it would be inappropriate given the context to assume the men are of any kind of sexual orientation.

The ASB dismissed the complaints, ruling that the depiction of two men kissing would encourage young people to turn gay was an "unlikely interpretation and not one that is likely to be shared by the broader community."

On the issue that the ad promoted the idea that being gay or male closeness was something to be ridiculed, the ASB said the practical joke carried out in the ad is "not a derogatory sentiment toward homosexual men and did not depict material which discriminates against or vilifies a person on account of sexual preference."

Its worth noting that the men don't actually kiss in the ad.

Soccer Star Frank Lampard Would 'Love It' If A Player Came Out: VIDEO

Frank_lampard_1

With the issue of gay people in professional sports a hot topic, former England soccer midfielder Frank Lampard has said he would love if a player “came out and everyone treated it with respect," reports the Independent.

Lampard (36), who currently plays for Manchester City, was speaking with Alan Carr on Chatty Man last weekend.

The former Chelsea midfielder said the notion that all soccer players are “macho” doesn’t hold true and that attitudes towards sexuality on and off the pitch have changed significantly.

Carr suggested that of “fifty-thousand professional footballers, one of them must be [gay].”

Lampard replied:

“I think a lot of the problem is, as you say, it’s a fact that it will be out there, as it is in all modern life at all times, but I think we are probably at fault as a sport. I think that it’s that old syndrome where it’s a man’s game and you can’t talk about that. I have to say the game’s changing a lot.

“There are a lot of campaigns. I feel it in the dressing room. There’s a different feel about it. I would love it if someone came out and everyone treated it with respect. You know that thing about ‘we’re macho we play football’, is very old hat.”

In recent years, a number of players - including Arsenal stars Theo Walcott, Mikel Arteta, Olivier Giroud, Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - publicly supported Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign.

Former Leeds player Robbie Rogers came out shortly before retiring in 2013 while Aston Villa’s Thomas Hitzlsperger followed in 2014.

In 1990, Justin Fashanu suffered sever homophobic abuse after coming out and later committed suicide following sexual assault allegations.

L.A. News Anchor Rips Diane Sawyer for Interviewing Bruce Jenner: VIDEO

Rubin

KTLA 5 News Anchor Sam Rubin is having none of it with the media circus surrounding Bruce Jenner’s upcoming interview with Diane Sawyer, ripping the award-winning journalist on-air for participating in the vapidity of the Kardashian media juggernaut.

"I don't care if Bruce Jenner is transitioning from one gender to another, one political party to another, one religion to another. What I do care about is that Jenner has been a passive participant in what can best be described as a cultural crime that has gone on for years."

Rubin ponders why an interview with Bruce Jenner merits two hours of airtime, regardless of whether he’s transitioning, switching political parties or religion.

Rubin also butchered CNN Senior Media Correspondent Brian Stelter’s comments after he called the Jenner interview, "(Sawyer’s) biggest scoop since stepping down from ABC’s World News last summer." Rubin lambasts Stelter, calling him an "idiot" and claiming that he only got his job because "of his uncanny physical resemblance to the man who hired him at CNN.

A court in Russia has authorized the government to block the social network page of a support group for LGBT teens, reports Radio Free Europe.

6a00d8341c730253ef01901ec465ed970b-300wiLawyer Maria Kozlovskaya said the support group Deti-404 had been preparing for a court hearing on the issue on April 6th.

However, when activists arrived at the court in St. Petersburg they were told that a decision had already been made to include the group's page on VKontakte on a list of banned websites.

According to Kozlovskaya, it is very likely that the page will be blocked.

404 refers to the error message displayed on computer screens when people attempt to navigate to a web page that doesn't exist.

Last year, Russia’s People's Patriotic Channel claimed that the documentary Deti-404 violated Russia's "gay propaganda" law.
