PinkNews reports: New York has had enough. New York City council speaker Corey Johnson–an openly gay man–called on Samaritan’s Purse to pack up and get out. “It is time for Samaritan’s Purse to leave New York City. This group, which is led by the notoriously bigoted, hate-spewing Franklin Graham, came at a time when our city couldn’t in good conscience turn away any offer of help,” Johnson declared. “That time has passed. Their continued presence here is an affront to our values of inclusion, and is painful for all New Yorkers who care deeply about the LGBT+ community.”
” At the city council, we are committed to supporting those workers and protecting our city’s public health. But as a city that values diversity and compassion for all, we cannot continue to allow a group with the track record of Samaritan’s Purse to remain here when we are past the point they are needed.”
State senator Brad Hoylman also called on Graham to “pack up his tents and leave New York City for good”.
Mount Sinai hospital, which has overflow patients to the site Central Park site said in a statement: “Now that the surge in COVID hospital admissions is reaching manageable levels, we will stop admitting new patients in the Central Park field hospitals of May 4.”
Graham has two weeks to dismantle the Samaritan’s Purse tent hospital and leave the area.
“This week pop icon George Michael passed away at age 53, Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher died at 60, and award winning Watership Down author Richard Adams died at the age of 96. From the unknown to the most well-known, we all have something in common—death. Our time on earth is brief—the Bible says like ‘a vapor.’ And each of us will stand before Almighty God to give an account. The decision that will determine where we spend eternity is whether we have believed in His Son, Jesus Christ, trusting Him as our Savior and following Him as Lord.
“There are no VIP passes or exceptions. Jesus said, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’ (John 14:6). I hope each of these people had made that all-important decision before they took their last breath on earth—Have you? If you haven’t, call on Him today. Don’t delay.” – Franklin Graham, posting to his Facebook page which i hope all will visit and comment on.
I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints. The sinners are much more fun. I tell you only the good die young.
“My personal support for Donald Trump has never been based upon shared values, it is based upon shared concerns about issues such as: justices on the Supreme Court that ignore the constitution, America’s continued vulnerability to Islamic terrorists and the systematic attack on religious liberty that we’ve seen in the last 7 1/2 years.” – Family Values, Anti-LGBT Hate group leader Tony Perkins.
Proving that their vaunted “Christian principles” are not only a lie, but that they can be bought.
“Christian” grifter Franklin Graham,, son of one of the original “Christian” grifters Billy Graham took to his bigoted and sanctimonious Facebook page to declare that CNN is trying to bully all God fearing, Mericun, religious folk into living in a hot gay and immoral depraved society!
“Now Who’s the Moral Majority? This headline was plastered across CNN’s website yesterday. Claiming victory in the attempt to bully the American people into fully embracing the homosexual lifestyle, the op-ed says Bible-believing Christians and traditional Americans ‘had better adjust to a new reality.’ Last year the Centers for Disease Control determined that less than 2% of the U.S. population identifies as homosexual. Where is the majority in that? But they are intent on trying to force the true majority into silence—they want us to just sit down and be quiet. Even if the majority of Americans did support gay marriage, God’s Word doesn’t need a majority vote. God’s Word is true regardless of the winds of moral change, and we must stand up for biblical truth in the midst of a depraved society.”
Franklin Graham, … what a fucking Cracker. (“born the son of a grifter man”)
Tea Party darling and potential Republican candidate for president in 2016 (because Tea Party loons are STILL Republicans) “Dr” Ben Carson in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo when asked if whether being gay is a choice, Carson responded: “Absolutely.”
“Because a lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they’re gay. So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question,” Carson said.
Carson stated that because of gay sex happens in prison by “straight” convicts that it “thwarts” the notion that homosexuality isn’t a choice.
Carson also said he believes the issue of allowing or restricting same-sex marriage should be decided on the state level, rather than by federal courts adding that he believes it’s possible to grant the legal rights that accompany marriage to same-sex couples, or any couple without redefining “marriage”.
“Why do gay people want to get married? Why do they say they want to get married? Because they want to have various rights — property rights, visitation rights,” he said. “Why can’t any two human beings, I don’t care what their sexual orientation is, why can’t they have the legal right to do those things? That does not require changing the definition of marriage.”
U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman (appointed to the federal bench in 1988 by Republican demon President Ronald Reagan) who this weekend struck down the state of Michigan’s marriage discrimination amendment as unconstitutional had some choice words for “expert witness” Mark Regnerus
Friedman slams Regnerus in his ruling going so far as to use quotation marks around the word “study” when referring to Regnerus’s right-wing-funded, discredited New Family Structures Study that claimed same-sex couples make inferior parents:
“The court finds Regnerus’s testimony entirely unbelievable and not worthy of serious consideration. The evidence adduced at trial demonstrated that his 2012 ‘study’ was hastily concocted at the behest of a third-party funder, which found it ‘essential that the necessary data be gathered to settle the question in the forum of public debate about what kinds of family arrangement are best for society’ and which ‘was confident that the traditional understanding of marriage will be vindicated by this study.'”…
“While Regnerus maintained that the funding source did not affect his impartiality as a researcher, the Court finds this testimony unbelievable. The funder clearly wanted a certain result, and Regnerus obliged.
Whatever Regnerus may have found in this ‘study,’ he certainly cannot purport to have undertaken a scholarly research effort to compare the outcomes of children raised by same-sex couples with those of children raised by heterosexual couples. It is no wonder that the NFSS has been widely and severely criticized by other scholars, and that Regnerus’s own sociology department at the University of Texas has distanced itself from the NFSS in particular and Dr. Regnerus’s views in general.” – U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman
That sound you hear is the final “flush” of any further “expert testimony” and any possible legitimate research career for Mark Regnerus
National Organization for Marriage employee and charlatan con-man “Bishop” Harry Jackson appeared on “Trunews: The End Times Newscast” with host Rick Wiles where they lament about “christian martyrdom”, the abomination of gays, and how President Obama has “spiritually sodomized the nation.”
Wiles: Last year, Barack Obama spiritually sodomized the US armed forces by compelling American generals to accept his demand that the military alter its code of moral conduct and permit homosexuals and lesbians to openly serve in the military.
Furthermore, he commanded the military to extend financial benefits to same-sex couples in the military. Additionally, military chapels on US military bases were ordered to permit homosexual marriage ceremonies inside the facilities.
The Boy Scouts of America is the next target of the socialist Obamanistas. Last week the Irving, Texas-based organization delayed a decision until May on whether the scouting organization will change its rules of conduct to allow homosexuals to serve as scout masters, troop leaders, and as Boy Scouts.
What will be the spiritual consequences of the American people allowing Barack Obama to spiritually sodomize the nation? Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr is on the telephone; I’m going to him that question.
Bishop Jackson, welcome to the program.
Jackson: Well Rick, I’m glad to be with you. You have quite a way with words. That was an intense introduction.
Wiles: Am I being over-dramatic in saying that Barack Obama has spiritually sodomized the nation?
Jackson: In some ways. Let me say it this way, your summary is clear, concise, and it’s true but I would say it like this: his administration is, in fact, the culmination of the downward cycle, morally, that I believe our nation has been in for some time.
If you can stomach it. You can listen to “Trunews: The End Times Newscast” by CLICKING HERE. Jackson comes in at the 9:00 minute mark.
American Family Association hate group spokes-thing Bryan FISTer Fischer sent a prayer to prayer that God today to “send confusion into the camp” of the Satanists that oppose anti-gay christian extremist Scott Lively who is currently standing trail for “crimes against humanity” for sowing the seeds of the “Kill the Gays” in Uganda.
I like that “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” bit. Nice writing, Bryan you make that up yourself?
I’m sure that William Shakespeare would bitchslap you to tomorrow if he knew what you were using his words for.
John and Anne Paulk were the king and queen of the so-called “ex-gay” industry. Anne an “ex-lesbian” had appeared in the Religious Right’s 1998 “Truth in Love” campaign with a full-page ad in the New York Times headlined, “I’m living proof that Truth can set you free.”and her husband, John, a “ex-gay” was the founder of Focus on the Family’s Love Won Out program and the Chairman of Exodus International. John and appeared numerous television shows like 60 Minutes, telling the world about how he prayed away the his own gay and married his “ex-lesbian” wife.
But on Sept. 19, 2000 that lie abruptly ended when investigative journalist Wayne Besen founder of Truth Wins Out photographed John in Mr. P’s, a notorious Washington, DC gay bar.
On September 19, 2003 while on a speaking tour, Paulk was identified as hustling drinks and flirting at Mr. P’s, a Washington DC neighborhood gay bar . While identifying himself as “John Clint”, a patron contacted Wayne Beeson, When Beeson arrived at the bar forty minutes later and confronted Paulk, he denied who he was, exited the bar and found a photographer outside to document his leaving the bar. When confronted by Beeson about the incident and the photographs, Paulk admitted being in the bar, but stated that he didn’t know it gay bar and had simply stopped in for a moment to use the restroom.
James Dobson on Focus on the Family radio, where the group claimed that Paulk had simply “slipped” into temporary sin. On the show, John plead for forgiveness and claimed that he had made a mistake by walking into “Satan’s Trap.”
Paulk family and his family moved to Portland, Oregon a few years later where John started a new life as a chef and opened Mezzaluna Catering, which featured a staff of highly attractive male models. *Ehhhm*
But in 2010 John slipped back into his media whoring Ex-gay ways and spoke at a 2010 Evergreen “ex-gay” conference.
Focus on the Family’ still claimed that despite the Mr. P’s incident, the Paulk family was an example of an “ex-gay” success story and that John had returned to heterosexuality.
Besen recently picked up his investigation into the Paulis once again. It urns out that John is STILL gay and Anne is still selling a bogus story of family bliss to Focus on the Family who is misleading its members by misrepresenting the facts about their “ex-gay” poster-family.
Said Dan Burrell, a former employee of John Paulks:
“He said I fit a certain aesthetic image that he was looking for and asked me if I wanted to work for him,” said Burrell. “It didn’t feel right…my instinct was telling me that something wasn’t right. I just had to find out and experience it. He definitely was interested in men. (He) Was interested in having a relationship with me. I didn’t want a relationship with him. I wanted to simply work for him. But not be in a relationship with him.”
“The purpose of this investigation is to have the Religious Right stop falsely portraying the Paulk family as a model for sexual conversion. To ensure that no products that contain Paulk propaganda — which includes books and videos — are sold to innocent families, and to halt the fantasy that is now being peddled by Anne at the Restored Hope Network.
We hope that this investigation will entice the Paulk family to stop lying and for John to finally live openly and honestly. But, these are the Paulks and integrity is not something that appears to be in their DNA. Indeed,the consumer fraud continues with Anne scheduled to speak March 15-16 at Janet Boynes Ministries “Power of Change” conference. No doubt, she will try to win converts by telling them about her wholesome and “healed” family.”
Everyone of these ex-gay frauds and grifters must be exposed and discredited. It’s the only way to stop the lies that is harmful to so many in our community and has led to psychological trauma and in some cases even death to those these lies are peddled too.
Further proof that every crazy right wing religious extremist nut and group is crawling out of the woodwork like the vermin they are to publicize themselves and their warped beliefs over this horrific tragedy.
“Watching the Memorial service for the twenty-six precious lives taken from us was painful to say the least, but it was far more painful to the God who made America great. Newtown cancelled Christmas so it could properly mourn. How foolish, yet typical of governmental strategy to replace God. The ‘Interfaith’ service was an affront to Almighty God. Those claiming to be His priests barely mentioned His Name –Jesus! After all, He is the only God there is! What happened? We violently removed the fear of Almighty God from the hearts of our children. We expelled God from school and banished Him from the schoolyard. He was replaced with metal detectors, condoms, policemen, anti-bullying policies, No-gun zones, and violence of unprecedented order. Our strategy has replaced God’s Truth. We are losing our kids because we are ignoring God’s Law.” – Pat McEwen, in a press release published by Christian Newswire.
