Bakers, florists, photographers, now web designers. Where will it end? LGBT activists want to force their agenda on the rest of the world. Lorie Smith, a Christian web designer from Colorado, is fighting in the courts to protect her right to not create websites that promote and communicate messages violating her religious beliefs and conscience. Lorie is fine with serving all people, but she should never have to create websites and graphics supporting topics that go against her personal beliefs and values. Lorie’s Alliance Defending Freedom attorney, Kristen Waggoner, said, “The government shouldn’t weaponize the law to force a web designer to speak messages that violate her beliefs…” Yesterday Lorie’s case was petitioned to the Supreme Court. Pray that they will hear it and rule in favor of free speech, rights of conscience and religious liberty. Let Lorie know you prayed for her and this important case in the comments below.
Ten of the top Democratic 2020 presidential contenders flocked to Iowa—the nation’s first caucus state—for the Des Moines Capital City Pride Festival. New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand served drinks at a gay bar; Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke sported a rainbow sweatband; and gay South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg talked openly about his coming out.
The notion that such immoral behavior clearly condemned by Scripture is now flaunted here at home and abroad reveals the deepening depravity that now vexes our country. What has happened to our great nation, whose Founding Fathers were men of uncommon character, virtually all of whom possessed a deep reverence for Almighty God and a firm belief in the hand of divine Providence?
They built this nation upon a strong foundation rooted in God’s laws. Sadly, that same moral and spiritual framework, which has held our nation together for 243 years, is now unraveling so quickly that I fear for the future of our children and grandchildren. The America that I knew as a young boy growing up in the mountains of North Carolina has changed so radically.
You may have caught a Chick-fil-A commercial during the Grammys, which uses Starship’s (the band that formed from Jefferson Starship, which formed from Jefferson Airplane) “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” as the musical backdrop for a series of clips in which oddly placed cows advocate for people to “eat more chicken.” Grace Slick — the former vocalist for all of the above bands — published a piece in Forbes explainingwhy: she’s taking the money from the commercial and donating it all to an LGBT rights group Lambda Legal. (The ONLY LGBT rights group that this website will actually endorse at this moment. Divest from HRC and give to Lambda Legal)
Well conman grifter Franklin Graham has a few crazed words to say about Slick and her donation to Lambda Legal.
“Jefferson Airplane band’s now 77 year-old lead singer Grace Slick has announced that the money she receives from the use of her song in a Chick-fil-A ad (bought by an ad agency) will go to fund LGBTQ causes. What I want Grace and others to know is that Almighty God created and defined marriage in His Word. Any sexual relationship outside of marriage between a man and a woman is sin, and all sin carries a death sentence.
“But God loves mankind so much that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to save us from the death penalty of sin. He is willing to forgive the sin in our lives if we will call on Him in faith. He is the only one who can bring the healing and transformation our hearts need. Grace, it’s my hope and prayer that you will put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ because He loves you very much.” – Franklin Graham, spouting more religious extremist bullshit on his Facebook page.
Even though yesterdays mid-term elections had little to nothing to do with marriage equality, the National Organization for Marriage’s Brian Brownshirt wasted no time typing up a press release with his pudgy little talons claiming that the Republican victory was all due to “traditional” restrictive marriage.
“Marriage won an overwhelming victory last night. In red states and blue, candidates who supported marriage as the union of one man and one woman won election and those who didn’t were rejected by voters. The Republican Party should take note that their nominees who favored gay ‘marriage’ were opposed by NOM and they were resoundingly defeated. It’s time for the GOP elite and consultant class to wake up and realize that marriage is a winning issue, in red states and blue. Traditional marriage amendments have received 50 million votes across America, and candidates who embraced marriage this election won, while Republicans who rejected marriage were themselves rejected. The election results tonight were a stunning rebuke of those who wish to redefine marriage. We look forward to working with Congress to advance the cause of marriage.”
In REAL marriage equality news the only real race which could have actually impacted gay marriage was the battle for the Iowa state Senate. The Democrats held it by only 1 seat. If the they would have lost control, the GOP could have begun the process of amending the state constitution to ban marriage equality. Iowa is in the 8th Circuit, so right now there’s no court decision which would render such repeal effort moot.
The people of Iowa have now had 3 election cycles in which to make their voice heard, and marriage equality is still secure.
“I think you have to understand, ladies and gentlemen, that the gay community wants an affirmation of the way they do sex,” Robertson told his viewers. “They’re willing, first of all, to destroy the church, if need be. Then to destroy the military if need be, then to destroy marriage if need be, then to destroy businesses if they need be. Is that minority going to destroy all the foundations of the morality of the majority?”
Robertson went on to say that evangelical Christians would put themselves in harm’s way attempting to help homosexuals get into heaven.
“We are people who love,” he said. “And yet now, your love is going to put you in jail, because the people who are going to hell through their lifestyle think, ‘Well, we want to be affirmed.’”
Robertson also speculated that if there were 100 million Christians living the U.S., then a “maximum” of 2 percent were gay men and 1 percent were lesbians.
Consistency is so important in life. Let’s hear it for Pat Robertson who is and always will be an asshole.
A 20-year-old Iowa college student who worked for Bradlee Dean’s “You Can Run But You Cannot Hide” ministry until late last month, has gone public with allegations that “the ministry” is actually a cult and that Dean is a crook after he was hired for a job and instead Dean took all his money, mentally abused him and kept him alienated from the world.
Dean is best know for being Michelle Bachmann’s boy toy, kicked out of WalMart parking lots for fake “Christian” ministry begging, and who also filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Rachel Maddow which he lost and now refuses to pay the court ordered legal fees.
Dagel’s press release reads:
FORMER EMPLOYEE OF BRADLEE DEAN’S MINISTRY SAYS MINISTRY IS A CULT
***Former employee of You Can Run But Can Not Hide International says ministry is a cult and donations are being abused***
Jake Dagel, a former employee of Bradlee Dean’s Minnesota based ministry, You Can Run But Can Not Hide International, is publicly coming forward today to share his experiences while working with the ministry. Dagel believes the ministry is a cult who manipulates and controls the minds of its employees. Dagel has also found through investigation that the ministry has abused donation money.
Dagel, a 20 year old student from Iowa first came into contact with Dean’s ministry when he invited him to speak at his community college in Iowa. Two weeks after the presentation Dagel became an employee of the ministry and joined the street evangelism team. While on the team Dagel traveled the country with the ministry to share the gospel in public locations.
Dagel reports that while working with the street evangelism team he was belittled and told he knew little about how Christianity worked, there was little for him back at home, was forced to tithe to the ministry, and that not talking to his family was normal. Dagel was also not allowed to watch television and was told to not pay attention to any media.
While traveling back from Florida on Saturday, June 29th the evangelism team made a stop around 3:00 AM in Pulawski, Tennessee to get gas. Dagel was told it was his turn to pay for gas but did not have the money to do so. Dagel was then instructed to either pay for gas or grab his belonging and get out of the vehicle. Because Dagel was without money to pay for the gas he got out of the vehicle while members of the ministry drove off to their destination.
Upon further investigation Dagel has found that according to You Can Run International’s 2011 IRS Form 990, President Bradlee Dean was paid $80,261 in compensation and $41,860 in housing allowance in 2011 for a total of $122,121. This is an increase of a $24,931 from the 2009 IRS Form 990. Secretary Jacob MacAulay was paid $55,604 in compensation and $25,678 in housing allowance for a total of $81,282 in 2011. This is an increase of $14,385 from the 2009 IRS Form 990.
“This so called ministry is clearly a cult due to the way it manipulates and controls its employees,” said Dagel. “It is also clear that the ministry abuses donation money by its administrators taking large housing allowances when many of its employees struggle to pay their own bills. I am making this information public in hopes that others will reconsider being employed by the ministry and giving them any money in donation.”
An investigation in 2011 and reported here at Back2Stonewall also shows that Bradlee Dean is not an ordained minister of any mainstream domination and bought his “ministry credentials” in 2004 to sever himself from the Government.
Court marshalled and disgraced anti-gay ex-military chaplin “Chaps” Gordon Klingenschmitt is up in arms over over ENDA (The Employment Non-Discrimination Act) be introduced in both the House and the Senate, which will prohibit “employers, employment agencies, and labor unions from from firing people just because they are LGBT claiming that it would be “the end of the world for Christian employers.”
“ENDA is the end of the world for Christian employers,” Klingenschmitt claimed, saying that ENDA is not about equality but rather “bankrupting Christian business owners.” and forcing major corporations “to give homosexual bonus pay to your gay or lesbian lover”
Crazy Klingenschmit goes on to assert that there is a demonic spirit at work behind the push for this legislation before asking why gays and lesbians should be entitled to employment protections when they are not going to Heaven.
“If the Bible will not give eternal benefits to homosexuals, if they cannot inherit the kingdom of God, why,” Klingenschmitt asked, “on this world, should they get bonus pay or employment benefits?”
Craaaaaaaaaaazy man. I mean LITERALLY, FUCKING CRAZY MAN.
“The Senate has abandoned society’s most important institution and put their constituents on a collision course with the law. Lawmakers have allowed themselves to be fooled into thinking they have protected people of faith when in fact they have put those who believe in true marriage in the crosshairs of the law and gay ‘marriage’ activists. It won’t be long before the repercussions begin to be felt.”
“For the first time, the state of Rhode Island is saying to its children they do not deserve both a mother and a father, and are backing a law that is designed to intentionally deprive some kids of either a mom or a dad. It’s bad enough when families break down through divorce or death, but it’s unconscionable when a state encourages this through policies that deprive children of the love of both a mother and a father. This is a very sad day for Rhode Island.” – National Organization for Marriage hate group leader Brian Brown on his way to the nearest Golden Corral to drown his sorrows at the trough.
Stay tunned for more Brian Brown and NOM’s fierce urgency of grifting before they are put out of business.
Con-man and gay face Joel Osteen (a Oprah discovery)of the Houston TX megachurch Lakewood, appeared on The Lead with Jake Tapper to pitch his mew book I Declare and talked about his right-wing christian-fest biblical show “The Bible” and let it be known that he doesn’t believe in or support same-sex marriage because has he doesn’t see “same-sex in the scripture.”
“It’s a fine line,” Osteen answered. “We’re for everybody, but, of course, as a Christian pastor my base is off what I believe the Scripture says. Marriage is between a male and a female. But again, we’re for everybody. But that’s where I draw the line.”
Tapper followed up by asking Osteen whether he believes that gay couples should have access to some basic rights.
“I think so. You know, I think we have to be compassionate about it all. We’re not against everybody. And there are certainly people who love each other and I believe they should have those rights. I just … you know, when I come back to the Scripture, as much as I’m for everybody, I don’t see same-sex in the Scripture.”
Well Osteen is right about one thing. Same-sex marriage isn’t in the scriptures but also no where in the Bible does it specifically say that same-sex marriage is not allowed or the fact that it is only between one man and one woman although it does mention marriage between one man and many women. After all, the nation of Israel comes from the offspring of the four “wives” (2 wives, 2 concubines) of Jacob. Polygamy and sexual slavery anyone? Its in the scripture so it must be okay!
The whole interview was a thinly veiled attempt by Osteen to hide his bigotry. And not a very good one at that and as much as I like Jake Tapper he should have called Osteen out on his woeful rhetoric.
And as for Miss Oprah. I’ve been waiting for years for an apology from her for her “discovery”of this anti-gay bigot and using him on her daytime talk show and legitimizing him as a “Man of God”
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.
