6 modern-day Christian terrorist groups our media conveniently ignores

They don’t get the coverage of ISIS or Boko Haram, but organizations like “The Army of God” are no less dangerous

From the link: http://www.salon.com/2015/04/07/6_modern_day_christian_terrorist_groups_our_media_conveniently_ignores_partner/

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) recently released an in-depth report on terrorism in the United States. Covering April 2009 to February 2015, the report (titled “The Age of the Wolf”) found that during that period, “more people have been killed in America by non-Islamic domestic terrorists than jihadists.” The SPLC asserted that “the jihadist threat is a tremendous one,” pointing out that al-Qaeda’s attacks of September 11, 2001 remain the deadliest in U.S. history. But the study also noted that the second deadliest was carried out not by Islamists, but by Timothy McVeigh in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995—and law enforcement, the SPLC stressed, are doing the public a huge disservice if they view terrorism as an exclusively Islamist phenomenon.

The report, in a sense, echoed the assertions that President Barack Obama made when he spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast in February and stressed that Muslims don’t have the market cornered on religious extremism. In the minds of far-right Republicans, Obama committed the ultimate sin by daring to mention that Christianity has a dark side and citing the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition as two examples from the distant past. Obama wasn’t attacking Christianity on the whole but rather, was making the point that just as not all Christians can be held responsible for the horrors of the Inquisition, not all Muslims can be blamed for the violent extremism of ISIS (the Islamic State, Iraq and Syria), the Taliban, al-Qaeda or Boko Haram. But Obama certainly didn’t need to look 800 or 900 years in the past to find examples of extreme Christianists committing atrocities. Violent Christianists are a reality in different parts of the world—including the United States—and the fact that the mainstream media don’t give them as much coverage as ISIS or Boko Haram doesn’t mean that they don’t exist.

Below are six extreme Christianist groups that have shown their capacity for violence and fanaticism.

1. The Army of God

A network of violent Christianists that has been active since the early 1980s, the Army of God openly promotes killing abortion providers—and the long list of terrorists who have been active in that organization has included Paul Jennings Hill (who was executed by lethal injection in 2003 for the 1994 killings of abortion doctor John Britton and his bodyguard James Barrett), John C. Salvi (who killed two receptionists when he attacked a Planned Parenthood clinic in Brookline, Massachusetts in 1994) and Eric Rudolph, who is serving life in prison for his role in the Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta in 1996 and other terrorist acts. Rudolph, in fact, has often been exalted as a Christian hero on the Army of God’s website, as have fellow Army of God members such as Scott Roeder (who is serving life without parole for murdering Wichita, Kansas-based abortion doctor George Tiller in 2009), Shelley Shannon (who attempted to kill Tiller in 2003) and Michael Frederick Griffin (who is serving a life sentence for the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn, an OB-GYN, in Pensacola, Florida).

Although primarily an anti-abortion organization, the Army of God also has a history of promoting violence against gays. And one of the terrorist acts that Rudolph confessed to was bombing a lesbian bar in Atlanta in 1997.

2. Eastern Lightning, a.k.a. the Church of the Almighty God

Founded in Henan Province, China in 1990, Eastern Lightning (also known as the Church of the Almighty God or the Church of the Gospel’s Kingdom) is a Christianist cult with an end-time/apocalypse focus: Eastern Lightning believes that the world is coming to an end, and in the meantime, its duty is to slay as many demons as possible. While most Christianists have an extremely patriarchal viewpoint (much like their Islamist counterparts) and consider women inferior to men, Eastern Lightning believe that Jesus Christ will return to Earth in the form of a Chinese woman. But they are quite capable of violence against women: in May 2014, for example, members of the cult beat a 37-year-old woman named Wu Shuoyan to death in a McDonalds in Zhaoyuan, China when she refused to give them her phone number. Eastern Lightning members Zhang Lidong and his daughter, Zhang Fan, were convicted of murder for the crime and executed in February. In a 2014 interview in prison, Lidong expressed no remorse when he said of Shuoyan, “I beat her with all my might and stamped on her too. She was a demon. We had to destroy her.”

Eastern Lightning’s other acts of violence have ranged from the killing of a grammar school student in 2010 (in retaliation, police believe, for one of the child’s relatives wanting to leave the cult) to cult member Min Yongjun using a knife to attack an elderly woman and a group of schoolchildren in Chenpeng in 2012. Christian groups are not exempt from Eastern Lightning’s fanaticism: in 2002, cult members kidnapped 34 members of a Christian group called the China Gospel Fellowship and held them captive for two months in the hope of forcing them to join their cult. Although mainly active in the communist People’s Republic of China, Eastern Lighting has been trying to expand its membership in Hong Kong.

3. The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA)

The mainstream media have had much to say about the Islamist brutality of Boko Haram, but one terrorist group they haven’t paid nearly as much attention to is the Lord’s Resistance Army—which was founded by Joseph Kony (a radical Christianist) in Uganda in 1987 and has called for the establishment of a severe Christian fundamentalist government in that country. The LRA, according to Human Rights Watch, has committed thousands of killings and kidnappings—and along the way, its terrorism spread from Uganda to parts of the Congo, the Central African Republic (CAR) and South Sudan. The word “jihadist” is seldom used in connection with the LRA, but in fact, the LRA’s tactics are not unlike those of ISIS or Boko Haram. And the governments Kony hopes to establish in Sub-Saharan Africa would implement a Christianist equivalent of Islamic Sharia law.

4. TheNational Liberation Front of Tripura

India is not only a country of Hindus and Sikhs, but also, of Muslims, Buddhists, Catholics and Protestants. Most of India’s Christians are peaceful, but a major exception is the National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT). Active in the state of Tripura in Northeastern India since 1989, NLFT is a paramilitary Christianist movement that hopes to secede from India and establish a Christian fundamentalist government in Tripura. NLFT has zero tolerance for any religion other than Christianity, and the group has repeatedly shown a willingness to kill, kidnap or torture Hindus who refuse to be converted to its extreme brand of Protestant fundamentalism.

In 2000, NLFT vowed to kill anyone who participated in Durga Puja (an annual Hindu festival) And in May 2003, at least 30 Hindus were murdered during one of NLFT’s killing sprees.

5. The Phineas Priesthood

White supremacist groups don’t necessarily have a religious orientation: some of them welcome atheists as long as they believe in white superiority. But the Christian Identity movement specifically combines white supremacist ideology with Christianist terrorism, arguing that violence against non-WASPs is ordained by God and that white Anglo Saxon Protestants are God’s chosen people. The modern Christian Identity movement in the U.S. has been greatly influenced by the Ku Klux Klan—an organization that has committed numerous acts of terrorism over the years—and in the 1970s, new Christian Identity groups like the Aryan Nations and the Covenant, the Sword and the Arm of the Lord (CSA) emerged. Another Christian Identity group of recent decades has been the Phineas Priesthood, whose members have been involved in violent activities ranging from abortion clinic bombings to bank robberies (mainly in the Pacific Northwest). On November 28, 2014, Phineas Priesthood member Larry Steven McQuilliams went on a violent rampage in Austin, Texas—where he fired over 100 rounds at various targets (including a federal courthouse, the local Mexican Consulate building and a police station) before being shot and killed by police.

6. The Concerned Christians

One of the ironic things about some Christianists is the fact that although they believe that Jews must be converted to Christianity, they consider themselves staunch supporters of Israel. And some of them believe in violently forcing all Muslims out of Israel. The Concerned Christians, a Christianist doomsday cult that was founded by pastor Monte “Kim” Miller in Denver in the 1980s, alarmed Colorado residents when, in 1998, at least 60 of its members suddenly quit their jobs, abandoned their homes and went missing—and it turned out there was reason for concern. In 1999, Israeli officials arrested 14 members of the Concerned Christians in Jerusalem and deported them from Israel because they suspected them of plotting terrorist attacks against Muslims. One likely target, according to Israeli police, was Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque—the same mosque that was targeted in 1969 (when a Christianist from Australia named Denis Michael Rohan unsuccessfully tried to destroy it by arson) and, Israeli police suspect, was a likely target in 2014 (when Adam Everett Livix, a Christianist from Texas, was arrested by Israeli police on suspicion of plotting to blow up Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem).

In 2008, Denver’s KUSA-TV (an NBC affiliate) reported that members of the Concerned Citizens had gone into hiding and that Miller hadn’t been seen in ten years.

Time to do to ChristoFascists what they want to do unto others!

Time to do to ChristoFascists what they want to do unto others!

First off, ChristoFascists always seem to be saying that Atheism is a religion. So seeing that Christo’s proclaim that my being an Atheist actually makes me religious, then I will use that against them. I now declare I am of the religion of Radical, Militant Atheism and Anti-Theism, and I state that now it is freaking time to give back to ChristoFascists what they have been dishing out far too long hiding behind their religion.

Basically if you or I were to stand at a street corner, demanding the brutal murder of others? We would be arrested and prosecuted, for the very least, of making death or terroristic threats. If we were screaming, foaming at the mouth, like many of these ChristoFascist preachers do, about how they should have a right to brutally murder others, basing it on their cherry-picking buybull verses, why again, we would be arrested for making death and terroristic threats and be charged with Hate Crimes. But because these scumbag ChristoFascists do so under the guise of their religion, why they can get away with it.

Well it is time, truly time, to fight fire with fire. So under my First Amendment right to freedom of religion, and as a Radical, Militant Atheist and Anti-Theist, which again, is considered and called a religion, by many ChristoFascists, I now use my right…..to give back to them what they dish the hell out.

Here is a list of my Top Ten ChristoFascists who deserve to be dragged out of their houses and a bullet put to their heads. Of course I am basing this on doing unto others as they want to do unto you, and taking a page out of Matthew McLaughlin’s disgusting Sodomite Suppression Act ballot initiative he filed in California.

NUMBER ONE OF THE TOP TEN LIST OF CHRISTOFASCISTS WHO SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT AND A BULLET PUT TO THEIR HEADS OR EXECUTED AS THEY WISH TO DO TO OTHERS:

1 Matthew McLaughlin: The Sodomite Suppression Act, also known as the “Shoot The Gays Initiative,” was a California ballot initiative proposed by Matt McLaughlin, an Orange County California attorney, that outlines seven measures relating to same-sex people engaging in sodomy including death for anyone who participates. McLaughlin’s act calls for the killing of gays and lesbians by “bullets to the head” or “any other convenient method.”. In a similar sentiment to both recent Russian and Uganda anti-gay laws, states San Diego Gay & Lesbian News, his initiative seeks to ban “sodomistic propaganda” and fine offenders “$1 million per occurrence and/or up to 10 years in prison and/or banishment for life from California.” The initiative, “which refers to homosexuality as “a monstrous evil” and an “abominable crime against nature,” would ban communicating messages of tolerance to minors; bar gays and lesbians, or anyone who voices acceptance, from holding government jobs or public office; and authorize mass murder” of lesbians and gays

Just for his filing that evil, disgusting, murderous Sodomite Suppression Act ballot initiative in California is reason enough for that scumbag ChristoFascist to be on this list. He should have a bullet put to his head just to save humanity from his religious insanity. This outhouse dwelling inbred thinks it is perfectly alright for his fellow psycho ChristoFascists to walk up to anyone they deem as gay or lesbian and shoot them in cold blood. He believes it is perfectly alright to demand all those who stand up for gays and lesbians to face up to life in prison, a million dollar fine, banishment from California, and prohibited from holding any public office. This is not the first time either that this demonic troglodyte has done this either. Well as Matthew McLaughlin wants to do to others….he should have it done right back to his sorry ass.

Christo-Fascist Pastor of Hate Scott Lively is currently on trial for Crimes Against Humanity in relation to the infamous Ugandan Kill the Gays bill.
Christo-Fascist Pastor of Hate Scott Lively is currently on trial for Crimes Against Humanity in relation to the infamous Ugandan Kill the Gays bill.

2. Scott Lively: He helped create and did all he could to pass the infamous Kill the Gays bill in Uganda, for which he is currently on trial for in Massachuttes, for Crimes Against Humanity. He went to Uganda and riled up the extremists. Because of his actions, especially his helping to publish the names of known gay and lesbian advocates, who were later murdered in extremely brutal ways, well Scott Lively is just as responsible for their murders as if he killed them with his own hands. Lively is best known for co-authoring, with Kevin Abrams, The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party. The book makes a series of claims that virtually no serious historian agrees with: that Hitler was gay, that “the Nazi Party was entirely controlled by militaristic homosexuals,” and that gays were especially selected for the SS because of their innate brutality. This is an outright lie as in fact, the Nazis murdered significant numbers of gays and made homosexuality a death penalty offense in 1942. Lively has taken his message abroad to Eastern Europe Africa and Russia. In a 2007 open letter to the Russian people, he asserted that “homosexuality is a personality disorder that involves various, often dangerous sexual addictions and aggressive, anti-social impulses.” In 2009, he went to Uganda to speak at a major conference on the evils of homosexuality, saying, among other things: “The gay movement is an evil institution. The goal of the gay movement is to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity.” He also met with Ugandan lawmakers. A month after Lively left the country, a bill was introduced that called for the death penalty for certain homosexual acts and prison for those who fail to disclose gays’ identities.

Scott though deserves a special kind of brutal death. See he also advocated the use of the oil filled tires placed around a gay or lesbians body and set ablaze. So Scott should have an oil filled tired placed around his fat ass and lit up like a dried out Christmas tree. Let’s see how he likes having done to him, what he has advocated to be done to others?

ChristoFascist Pastor of Hate Steven Anderson after a well deserved beating he got.
ChristoFascist Pastor of Hate Steven Anderson after a well deserved beating he got.

3. Steven Anderson: Steven Anderson, formerly affiliated with Sacramento, Calif.-based Regency Baptist Church, started Faithful Word Baptist Church in Arizona on Christmas Day 2005 as a “totally independent” organization. With “well over a hundred chapters of the Bible memorized word-for-word,” Anderson quickly led his congregation into a series of extremely radical stands. Much of his venom was aimed at homosexuals, who he suggests should be killed (“The biggest hypocrite in the world is the person who believes in the death penalty for murderers but not for homosexuals”). In an August 2009 sermon, he attacked the United Methodist Church, saying “10% of their preachers are queers” and adding, “they got a dyke and a faggot behind the pulpit.” He has described gays as “sodomites” who “recruit through rape” and “recruit through molestation.”

Anderson is also a virulent government hater. As operator of the True Sons of Liberty website, the pastor calls for abolishing the IRS, the Federal Reserve, Social Security and Child Protective Services state agencies. In April 2009, he refused to get out of his car or answer questions from Border Patrol agents at the California-Arizona border. Agents broke his window and tased him as a result.

Anderson brought his church national notoriety in August 2009, when a member of his congregation, Christopher Broughton, went to an Obama appearance in Phoenix legally carrying an assault rifle and a pistol. It turned out that Anderson had preached a day earlier to Broughton and others that he “hates Obama” and would “pray that he dies and goes to hell.” Two weeks later, he told openly gay columnist Michelangelo Signorile that he “would not judge or condemn” anyone who killed the president. Then, for good measure, he told Signorile at the end of the interview, “If you’re a homosexual, I hope you get brain cancer and die like Ted Kennedy.”

Anderson is a special piece of shit. He has demanded the brutal murder of gays and lesbians for the last decade or so. He wants to scream how gays should be stoned to death? Well because I believe he should have done to him what he wants to do to others? If anyone catches this scumbag piece of shit eating bacon? Or wearing clothes of mixed fabrics? Or violating any of the other abominations in his KJV buybull? Then he should be immediately dragged outside and stoned to death on the spot.

ChristoFascist Pastor Pat Robertson makes statement about Gay Rings designed to infect others with HIV by shaking their hands.
ChristoFascist Pastor Pat Robertson makes statement about Gay Rings designed to infect others with HIV by shaking their hands.

4. Pat Robertson: Pat is a real winner. From his recent declaration that kids actually celebrate Satan when they go out trick or treating, to his defense of the Guatemalan president: Efraín Ríos Montt, who during his reign of terror at least 3,000 Guatemalan’s were killed or disappeared each month, to how he screams against Muslims installing Sharia law here in the United States, but has no problem with installing his and others brand of ChristoFascism upon the rest of us, to his outrageous statements against gays and lesbians, such as how gays are infecting people with HIV through the use of a ring, or how lesbianism is contageous, to many other equally insane and outrageous statements he seems to spew on a regular basis? Pat also believes that he and his fellow Christians are oh so persecuted…

The 700 Club” ran a story today about American Christians who are supposedly suffering persecution by being forced to violate their religious beliefs in order to maintain their jobs. Citing figures like Kim Davis and Barronelle Stutzman, CBN insisted that Christians are being bullied, intimidated and persecuted by not being allowed to impose their beliefs on others or discriminate against gay customers while doing their jobs. Pat Robertson was, of course, outraged by this “tyranny.” “Believers should not be forced to do something they don’t believe in,” he said. “It is tyrannical to force somebody to give money and pay taxes for something they abhor … The homosexuals don’t just want to be left alone, now they want to come out and stick it to the Christians. They have made it clear and it’s an organized thrust throughout this nation to force conformity.”

“This used to be considered perversion, it used to be considered an abomination,” he continued. “The Bible says it’s an abomination, the Bible says it’s a sin and these people say, ‘Not only do we want to practice our sinful ways like Sodom and Gomorrah, we’re going to make you like it and we’re going to make you participate whether you like it or not.'” He then stated: “That is absolute tyranny and it’s high time we call it what it is and we stand up for freedom,” Robertson concluded.

Pat has no problem though, being a tyrant and demanding the rest of us, whether we are Christian or not, to follow his religion. Well Pat needs to be called home to his Lawd and Sabior, preferably with a full frontal lobotomy performed by a well placed .50 cal Desert Eagle slut between his eyes.

Buybull Thumping Hate Monger ChristoFascist Bryan Fischer
Buybull Thumping Hate Monger ChristoFascist Bryan Fischer

5. Bryan Fischer: Bryan Fischer, a nationally syndicated Christian radio host, has a long history of anti-gay activism. In 2009, he began garnering national attention after he was hired by the American Family Association (AFA), which the Southern Poverty Law Center listed as an anti-gay hate group in 2010. Since joining the AFA as director of issue analysis for government and public policy, Fischer has used the group’s website and its radio network to promote outrageous and false claims about LGBT people, Muslims, Native Americans and African Americans. Despite Fischer’s extreme views – like blaming gay men for the Holocaust, calling for the criminalization of homosexuality, and calling for the banning of Muslim immigration to the U.S. – prominent conservatives continue to appear on Fischer’s radio show.

Fischer found a few more callings that would boost his profile: public crusades against LGBT people, lobbying the legislature against gay rights, and becoming the face of Idaho Christian conservatism in local media. The media-savvy “Reverend,” as he was known, was always available for a sound bite or quote with regard to “family values,” and he found a platform to espouse his conservative opinions on topics that ranged from women’s issues, health, science, constitutional law, climate change, civil rights and LGBT people. Fischer was described in a 2009 editorial at NewWest.net as constantly “lobbying for anti-everything causes.”

Fischer jumped into debates about LGBT rights with zeal. His quotes appeared hundreds of times in Idaho news outlets as the conservative “balance” to LGBT rights supporters. He and the IVA launched a public campaign against LGBT people that culminated in the 2006 passage of Amendment 2 to the Idaho constitution. The amendment prohibits same-sex marriage and prohibits the state and local governments from recognizing any kind of domestic legal union unless it’s between a man and a woman, effectively disenfranchising Idaho’s LGBT couples.

Fischer’s anti-gay propagandizing has long relied heavily on falsehoods that can be traced to the discredited psychologist Paul Cameron. Like Cameron, Fischer has equated homosexuality with pedophilia; claimed that same-sex parents are a danger to children; claimed that LGBT people don’t live as long as heterosexual people; and said that LGBT people are more promiscuous and more prone to domestic violence than heterosexuals. He also has falsely claimed that hate crime laws protect pedophiles.

Fischer found another way to denigrate the LGBT community when he discovered the Holocaust revisionist work of Scott Lively, whose Abiding Truth Ministries was first listed as an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2007. Lively’s Pink Swastika makes the claim that the Nazi Party was filled with gay men (and that Hitler himself was gay), and that because of the “savage nature” of gay men, they were able to instigate and carry out the Holocaust. Lively’s work has been roundly and fully discredited by reputable historians, but facts never seem to bother Fischer. He touted Lively and his bizarre Holocaust revisionism in 2008 on the IVA website, agreeing wholeheartedly with Lively’s claims that gay men caused the Holocaust, and he has since continued to reference Lively’s work to link homosexuality to the Nazi Party (most recently in 2010).

Fischer continued his campaign against LGBT people when he joined the AFA, where he serves as a radio host and blogger at the AFA website “Rightly Concerned” and at the Christian website RenewAmerica. In 2009, his posts became aggressively anti-Muslim. It didn’t take long for his inflammatory rhetoric in that regard to attract national attention. The horrific event that propelled him onto the national stage was the November 2009 massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, in which Major Nidal Hasan shot 12 people to death. In response, Fischer called for the U.S. military to ban Muslims. His statements landed him soon after on former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann’s “Worst Person” list.

Since then, Fischer has called for a ban on Muslim immigration to the U.S., said that inbreeding may have affected Muslim intelligence and sanity, and claimed that the Bill of Rights grants freedom of religion only to Christians. He has also continued his virulent anti-gay propagandizing, calling for the regulation of homosexuality in the same manner the U.S. regulates cigarettes, and said that homosexuality should be as illegal as IV drug use, and that, “Ultimately we need to get to appropriate sanctions for the act [of gay sex] itself.”

What can you say about this disgusting, ChristoFascist psychopath? He wants all illegal immigrants to be forced to accept Christianity as a condition of being a US Citizen. He now attacks our military calling them the Sodomite Army. He has spewed all kinds of hate and murder from his well used outhouse piehole. He blams the Holocaust and many other things on LGBT’s.  “[h]omosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and 6 million dead Jews.”. He proposed criminalizing homosexual behavior in another 2010 blog post and has advocated forcing gays into “reparative” therapy. And then there are the promiscuous. On his May 26, 2010, radio show, Fischer recounted the biblical story of Phineas, who used a spear to kill a man and a woman who were having sex. Citing the nation’s “rampant sexual immorality,” Fischer said, “God is obviously looking for more Phineases in our day.”.

“Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews.”
– Bryan Fischer Web post, “Homosexuality, Hitler, and ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,'” 2010

“Homosexuals are rarely monogamous and have as many as 300 to 1,000 sexual partners over the course of a lifetime. … [T]he risk of sexual abuse in a homosexual household is much greater than in a heterosexual household.”– Bryan Fischer Web post, “The Truth about Gay Marriage and Civil Unions,” 2006

“Many of the tribal reservations today remain mired in poverty and alcoholism because many native [sic] Americans continue to cling to the darkness of indigenous superstition instead of coming into the light of Christianity and assimilating into Christian culture.”– Bryan Fischer Web post, “Native Americans Morally Disqualified Themselves from the Land,” 2011

“[T]he most compassionate thing we can do for Americans is to bring a halt to the immigration of Muslims into the U.S. This will protect our national security and preserve our national identity, culture, ideals and values. Muslims, by custom and religion, are simply unwilling to integrate into cultures with Western values and it is folly to pretend otherwise. In fact, they remain dedicated to subjecting all of America to sharia law and are working ceaselessly until that day of Islamic imposition comes.”– Bryan Fischer Web post, “Time to Restrict Muslim Immigration to the U.S., Send Them Back Home,” 2010

Bryan Fischer should be hunted down and a spear shoved through is body. It would be giving a gift to humanity if a “Phinease” would just shove a spear into his bigoted, jackbooted, brown shirt wearing, ChristoFascists piehole and then right out his asshole….because this is what is deserving of a scumbag like this.

Psychotic, murderous, ChristoFascist, Theodore Shoebat
Psychotic, murderous, ChristoFascist, Theodore Shoebat

6. Theodore Shoebat: I have already done a blog posting on this psychotic, freak of humanity. Theodore Shoebat, the deranged Christian fascist son of fake “ex-terrorist” Walid Shoebat, is once again calling for gay people to be murdered in the name of Jesus, justifying it by claiming that gays would persecute Christians if they could so they’d better murder them before they can do that.

Since homosexuality is against the sacrament of marriage, which is the building block of society, then it is against the common good, and the very Faith of our civilization, and thus is an enemy to the Christian people and should be treated as sedition. Let the heretics who believe in such license read where St. Paul refers to these sodomites as “deserving of death,” and also those who “approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:32), and let them dare say that homosexuality should be allowed in a Christian society … A small step is a great fall, and a little leaven spoils the whole batch; if we allow such wickedness to be done in incriminates [sic], then they will soon be done in great numbers. Crush the eggs of the baby serpents before they hatch. The sodomite, the atheist, the fanatic feminist, the Muslim — all such must be deemed as criminals and enemies to civilization, for they war against the Faith, promote death and hate life.

They should be told to leave their wicked ways under coercion, and if that does not work, then death and strong suppression is the only solution. We cannot allow someone the freedom to do evil, for this will only increase the presence of darkness in the society, and it will become an internal enemy … Let the governments take up the Holy Cross, and destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8) Let it destroy the advancers of antichrist, and utterly annihilate the acolytes of the evil doctrines of Sodom. Christus vincit!

Theodore Shoebat should be hunted down and a bullet immediately put into his head, to save humanity from his psychotic ChristoFascist insanity.

ChristoFascist Peter LaBarbera
ChristoFascist Peter LaBarbera

7. Peter LaBarbera: Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) was formed as a part-time venture in 1996 by long-time gay-basher Peter LaBarbera, who reorganized it in 2006 as a much more serious and influential, if often vicious, operation. A one-time reporter for the conservative Washington Times, LaBarbera has been an energetic campaigner against “the radical homosexual agenda” since at least 1993, when he launched The Lambda Report, which claimed to do first-hand reporting to expose its gay enemies. Over the years, he has been an official with Accuracy in Media, Concerned Women for America, the Family Research Council and the Illinois Family Institute. He left the Illinois Family Institute, where he’d been executive director, in 2006. AFTAH is notable for its posting of the utterly discredited work of Paul Cameron (of the Family Research Institute), who has claimed that gays and lesbians live vastly shorter lives than heterosexuals. Among the Cameron propaganda published by AFTAH are 2007 claims that gays and lesbians in Norway and Denmark live 24 fewer years than heterosexuals. Reviewing that claim, Danish epidemiologist Morten Frisch found that “it had no scientific basis”. LaBarbera himself, in 2002, compared the alleged dangers of homosexuality to those of “smoking, alcohol and drug abuse.” Similarly, AFTAH’s website carries essays describing homosexuality as a “lethal behavior addiction,” a “dangerous” practice that is “neither normal nor benign.” In 2006, then-Executive Director Peter LaBarbera for the Illinois Family Institute, told a religious-right gathering hosted by Vision America that homosexuality was “disgusting” and demanded the closing down of all “homosexual establishments.” He called for the repeal of all “sexual orientation laws” — laws that ban discrimination against gays — and spoke of the “need to find ways to bring back shame to those practicing homosexual behavior.”

Peter LaBarbera should be hunted down and a bullet put into his head, just to shut his disgusting mouth full of bigotry and lies against gays and lesbians. If anyone deserves to live a short life, it is this low-life scumbag ChristoFascist.

ChristoFascist Michael Crook....should have done unto him as he wants to do unto others.
ChristoFascist Michael Crook….should have done unto him as he wants to do unto others.

8. Reverend Michael Crook: Blogger, author, troop-hater, and rape apologist, and all-around good guy “Reverend” Michael Crook feels there is a rape problem in America. The problem? The problem is that we think it exists. Oh, and atheists and gays should die. Crook waged war on bloggers who posted screenshots of what must have been an overwhelmingly embarrassing experience for him–filing false DMCA complaints in an effort to take down anyone who spoke in any way ill of him. As part of a lawsuit settlement, Crook issued a public apology for his harassment. Crook, who has referred to rape as “surprise sex,” said of the Steubenville rape victim, “She wore clothing that could, in my opinion, be reasonably perceived by those in her age bracket as inviting sexual contact, and by others as just plain “slutty,” which is an element that conveniently seems to exist in many accusations of “rape.” After her assailants received a slap on the wrist for their actions, Crook lamented that two young men’s lives are ruined.

It is not only for these reasons that Michael Crook made this list, but for his rampant tweets about how “I really, truly wish that atheism and homosexuality could both be criminalized with the death penalty as the end result.” or how “Homosexuals should be denied medical care, public assistance and everything else until they repent.” or his standing up for sex offenders…who truthfully NEVER reforms “If I had to chose between a reformed sex offender and an atheist living in my neighborhood, the atheist would not prevail.” or even more attacks against rape victims “”Without exception, “rape” is simply buyers remorse, a simple misunderstanding, or, quite frankly, a lie designed to exact revenge.”.

Well Michael Crook, this is one Radical and Militant Atheist who freaking DARES you to try to come and execute him. Put your money where your fat outhouse piehole is….let’s see if you got the balls of your conviction. I will gladly send you my address so I can see if you got the guts to kill this Atheist, but I would warn you, before you come to my door? Have your will written out, your life insurance paid off and you kiss your inbred, outhouse dwelling retarded loved ones goodbye. Cause the next time they will see you? I will have gift wrapped you in a body bag to send you back to them, for the closed casket funeral after I rip your fucking head off and shoved it up your ass.

Yeah, this son of a jackal should first be put into a prison full of big dicked rapists who can use him for a boy toy, then once he gets raped a few times we can tell him….oh that was just a simple misunderstanding between you and the rapists now wasn’t it? The misunderstanding was, that you loved it Michael Crook, you wanted it and you are a homosexual because of it. So because you are a homosexual Michael Crook, once you are released from prison? We can put a bullet to your head or stone you to death for being a flaming homosexual because you did not punch your rapists in the face now did you?

9. Mat Staver: What can you really say about this disgusting leader of the Liberty Council, Mat Staver?

Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver joined VSY America’s “Crosstalk” program recently to discuss his work urging government officials to defy the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage equality. Staver urged governors and other elected officials to “stand up and resist” the Supreme Court’s ruling, praising officials in Alabama and Texas who are pushing back against it. Such officials, he said, could create “sanctuary cities” free from gay marriage and abortion rights, just as some cities have become sanctuary cities for undocumented immigrants. “You know what, if some cities can create sanctuary cities for illegal aliens, why can’t a city or a state create a sanctuary city or state to protect the preborn?” he asked. “And to protect marriage,” VCY’s Jim Schneider chimed in. “…and to protect marriage, absolutely.”

Staver is representing one Kentucky County clerk, Kim Davis, who is refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples, which he said she can’t do because she would be giving those couples a “license” to “engage in a sinful activity with a sinful relationship.”

Liberty Counsel Chairman Mat Staver says LGBT young people have “confusion” because of “the likes of a Jerry Sandusky abuser,” so they need to be cured by dangerous attempts to change their sexual orientation – a practice that has been condemned by every major medical and mental health organization in the country. Liberty Counsel’s Staver Defended Reparative Therapists, Calling Laws Banning The Practice “One Of The Greatest Assaults On Children And Families That Has Risen In Recent Times.”  “In his testimony before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice, Staver called it ‘religious discrimination’ that two states, California and New Jersey, have passed laws prohibiting counselors from practicing gay conversion therapy on minors, a widely discredited approach to trying to change someone’s sexual orientation. New York is also mulling a similar ban. ‘Homosexual activists have attempted to enact laws throughout the country that would silence mental health professionals from expressing the truth that an individual can successfully reduce or eliminate unwanted same-sex attractions, behaviors or identity and live consistent with their sincerely held religious beliefs concerning human sexuality,’ Staver wrote in his prepared remarks. ‘Those efforts are nothing more than an attempt to censor any viewpoint concerning scriptural teaching on human sexuality, and they represent one of the greatest assaults on children and families that has arisen in recent times.’”

According to World Net Daily, when decrying California’s ban on reparative therapy, “Staver said California legislators and judges ‘have essentially barged into the private therapy rooms of victimized young people and told them that their confusion, caused by the likes of a Jerry Sandusky abuser, is normal and that they should pursue their unwanted and dangerous same-sex sexual attractions and behavior, regardless of whether those minors desire their religious beliefs to trump their unwanted attractions.’” In response to the Supreme Court declining to take case on California reparative therapy ban, the New York Times reported, “Liberty Counsel, a Christian legal aid group that is affiliated with Liberty University in Virginia, had petitioned the Supreme Court to step in, arguing that lawmakers had no scientific basis for their contention that conversion therapy does harm. ‘I am deeply saddened for the families we represent and for the thousands of children that our professional clients counsel, many of whom developed these unwanted attractions because of abuse of a pedophile,’ the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, Mat Staver, said in a statement. ‘The minors we represent do not want to act on same-sex attractions,’ he said, ‘nor do they want to engage in such behavior. They are greatly benefiting from this counseling.’”

March 2009:  Lively And Two Other Americans Headlined A Conference In Kampala On “The Gay Agenda.”  “Last March, three American evangelical Christians, whose teachings about “curing” homosexuals have been widely discredited in the United States, arrived here in Uganda’s capital to give a series of talks.  The theme of the event, according to Stephen Langa, its Ugandan organizer, was ‘the gay agenda — that whole hidden and dark agenda’ — and the threat homosexuals posed to Bible-based values and the traditional African family. For three days, according to participants and audio recordings, thousands of Ugandans, including police officers, teachers and national politicians, listened raptly to the Americans, who were presented as experts on homosexuality. […]The three Americans who spoke at the conference — Scott Lively, a missionary who has written several books against homosexuality, including ‘7 Steps to Recruit-Proof Your Child’; Caleb Lee Brundidge, a self-described former gay man who leads ‘healing seminars’; and Don Schmierer, a board member of Exodus International, whose mission is ‘mobilizing the body of Christ to minister grace and truth to a world impacted by homosexuality’ — are now trying to distance themselves from the bill.”

Of course Mat Staver and his Liberty Council is representing Lively in his trial on Crimes Against Humanity in Massacheuttes:

According to a press release from Liberty Counsel, “Today, Liberty Counsel will represent Rev. Scott Lively, an evangelical pastor who was sued by the foreign group called Sexual Minorities of Uganda (SMUG). The suit heard by the U.S. District Court in Springfield, Massachusetts, alleges that Rev. Lively committed ‘crimes against humanity’ in violation of ‘international law,’ simply by sharing his Biblical views on homosexuality during a 2009 visit to Uganda. Representing Rev. Lively today is Senior Litigation Counsel Harry Mihet and General Counsel Steve Crampton. The suit is a direct attempt to silence Rev. Lively and intimidate other pastors against teaching the Biblical position on homosexuality. Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, said, ‘This lawsuit against Rev. Scott Lively is a gross attempt to use a vague international law to silence, and eventually criminalize, speech by U.S. citizens on homosexuality and moral issues. This suit should cause everyone to be concerned, because it a direct threat against freedom of speech.’”

According to Equality Matters, “Appearing on Salem Radio Network’s The Janet Mefferd Show on August 19, Staver called Lively, whom Liberty Counsel represents, a ‘peaceful’ man victimized by ‘a George Soros-backed organization.’ The ‘George Soros-backed organization’ Staver referred to is the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights, which is working with Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) to hold Lively accountable for his complicity in human rights violations in that country, where Lively’s preaching against gays stoked anti-gay violence and inspired legislation – popularly known as the ‘kill the gays’ bill – to make ‘certain homosexual behavior’ punishable by death….. Liberty Counsel’s official line is that Lively merely conveys to international audiences his biblically-based opposition to homosexuality, and that any abuses of human rights have nothing to do with his work. But Lively’s actions and his own words suggest otherwise.”

Yeah, Mat Staver, another ChristoFascist scumbag who should have done unto him as he wants done unto others. This ChristoFascist should first go through some form of reparative therapy, to attempt to bring this inbred, outhouse dwelling Cro-Magnum scumbag to modern times. If that does not work, then like Scott Lively, he should have a gas filled tire placed about his body and light up like the proverbial dried out Christmas tree.

ChristoFascist Gordon Klingenschmitt waving his closeted gay hands.

10. Gordon Klingenschmit: Televangelist and Religious Right activist Gordon Klingenschmitt will soon be starting a new job as a Republican member of the Colorado House of Representatives. This is a big promotion for Klingenschmitt, who has until now been laboring away as the host of a TV program called “Pray In Jesus Name”.

Klingenschmitt, an exorcist who preformed exorcisms for gays who got married and who goes by the nickname “Dr. Chaps”.

Gordon truly needs a full frontal lobotomy with a .50 cal Desert Eagle between his eyes. This is just one really psychotic preacher of hate of the ChristoFascists. Here are just some examples of Gordon opening his well used outhouse piehole, only to flip flop and claim he never said what he said.

Religious Right activist and Colorado state Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt claims that “child molesting” is “a favorite ‘recruiting’ tool of adult homosexuals” and warns that allowing openly gay men to be Boy Scout troop leaders will “lead to child abuse.” These gay child molesters, he adds, should be drowned.  “If your boy is in one of those organizations, you need to get the out of there,” Klingenschmitt said, “because what they’re going to do is promote homosexual men to mentoring and camping with your boys in the woods and it will lead to child abuse.”

He went on to cite Matthew 18:6 to declared that it would be better for these gay child molesters to be tossed into the sea and drowned than to be allowed to “cause a child to sin,” praying that God will “rescue the Boy Scouts organization from this political correctness that has openly forced men who are guilty of all kinds, who are openly admitting that they are engaged in all kinds of sodomy.”

The Boy Scouts are “thumbing their nose at God,” Klingenschmitt warned, as he begged God’s forgiveness because the organization is opening the door to “the abusers and the molesters who will take advantage of this and will cause harm to innocent children.”

Of course to show the hypocrisy of Gordon, read this and ask yourself how come he did not grab this child molester and drown him in the sea, but instead, called him a “new friend”? A few weeks before Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt found himself in hot water for saying Jesus said that child molesters should be drowned, he interviewed a man on his show who has been convicted twice of sexual assault on a child and called him a “new friend.”

David Dorty, who is active in El Paso County politics and is with the American Conservatives of Color, appeared on Klingenschmittt’s video ministry Pray in Jesus’ Name (PIJN) News on July 16. Dorty, as The Gazette reported in March, has twice been convicted of sexually assaulting a child, once by a person in a position of trust. Dorty, and those who stand beside him, say he has been reformed through the help of God. Klingenschmitt made no distinction between redeemed and unredeemed child molesters when he quoted a bible verse about causing children to sin.

Then we have even more outrageous bullshit spewed from his well used outhouse piehole:

1. After Sen. Al Franken and Rep. Jared Polis introduced the Student Non-Discrimination Act, an anti-bullying bill, Klingenschmitt accused the Democratic officials of wanting to legalize child rape.

“Al Franken (D-MN) wants to require pedophilia in all public schools,” he wrote in an email to supporters, calling the bill the “No Child Left Unmolested Amendment” and the “Sodomite Schools Bill”, warning that the bill would make “sexual assault protected as ‘freedom of self-expression,’” Klingenschmitt claimed that “child molesting” is “a favorite ‘recruiting’ tool of adult homosexuals. They violate children, and when the victim is later confused, they lie and say ‘you were born that way.’” In other emails, Klingenschmitt likened Franken to Kim Jong-Il, compared Polis to an ISIS member seeking to behead Christians, and predicted that gay rights laws would cause schools to teach students that “every child has a right to be raped.” 

Klingenschmitt has also accused same-sex parents of trying to recruit their children into the “homosexual lifestyle,” claiming that a stock photo of two men and a baby showed one man looking at the infant with “lust” and “licking his chops”.

2. Klingenschmitt, who is convincedthat “transgendered perverts” want to “violate” children and “recruit them into sexual perversion,” fears that transgender students are “raping, at least visually,” girls at school. Discussing a court case brought by the family of a transgender girl seeking to use the women’s restroom at her school, Klingenschmitt said the girl was “possessed by a demon” and needed to “man up.” “The parents are encouraging that and really what the parents ought to do is take that boy to an exorcist, take that boy to a minister or at least discipline the boy, maybe give him a spanking,” he said.

3. The televangelist warned last year that while homosexuality is “still illegal in the eyes of God,” now gay rights activists “want to force Christians to participate in their sodomy.” “If we Christians do not participate in their sodomy, then we can be sued, bankrupted and jailed,” he said. “I don’t think that’s right, I perceive that’s a demonic spirit of tyranny that would come against the Christians and force us to convert to their religion.”

4. Klingenschmitt advised a photographer who faced legal action after denying service to a same-sex couple to go ahead and photograph the couple’s wedding…but print a scripture verse that he interprets to mean that gay people are “worthy of death” on the back of each wedding photo. In another commentary, Klingenschmitt declared that gay people are “cooperating with the Devil and there’s something unhuman inside of them.”

5. Klingenschmitt once noted that the appearance of homosexuality and bisexuality in animals happens because “it is possible for demons or the devil to inhabit or invade animals just the same way they invade humans, and that causes the sin of lust.”

Yeah Gordon does in fact, need a full frontal lobotomy as soon as possible. He believes that gay people are “worthy of death”, well it also says in his buybull, that glutony is an abomination and a sin that should be punished with death. Along with lying. So it looks like if we apply his buybull to his own actions? Then Gordon Klingenschmitt should be stoned to death for his gluttony, his lying, along with his wearing clothes of mixed fabrics. Bet he also eats lots of bacon, bbq baby-back ribs, pork chops, shrimp, lobster and other things that are prohibited in his buybull.

Then again, I honestly also believe that Gordon is a closeted gay man, who fantasizes about being gang-raped by boy scout troop leaders and diaper wearing service men who he says wears them because they are gay and have no control over their bowels.

MIKE HUCKABEE STANDS UP AND DEFENDS CHILD MOLESTER AND PERVERT JOSH DUGGAR AND HIS INBRED FAMILY.

Scumbag Christo-Fascist Mike Huckabee with one of his favorite child molesters and Christo-Fascist hypocrite Josh Duggar.
Scumbag Christo-Fascist Mike Huckabee with one of his favorite child molesters and Christo-Fascist hypocrite Josh Duggar.

First, this is a posting, taken directly from this sickening, two-faced, low-life hypocrite Mike Huckabee’s own Facebook Page about the perverts Josh Duggar and his sickening parents.

Janet and I want to affirm our support for the Duggar family. Josh’s actions when he was an underage teen are as he described them himself, ‘inexcusable,’ but that doesn’t mean ‘unforgivable.’ He and his family dealt with it and were honest and open about it with the victims and the authorities. No purpose whatsoever is served by those who are now trying to discredit Josh or his family by sensationalizing the story. Good people make mistakes and do regrettable and even disgusting things. The reason that the law protects disclosure of many actions on the part of a minor is that the society has traditionally understood something that today’s blood-thirsty media does not understand—that being a minor means that one’s judgement is not mature. No one needs to defend Josh’s actions as a teenager, but the fact that he confessed his sins to those he harmed, sought help, and has gone forward to live a responsible and circumspect life as an adult is testament to his family’s authenticity and humility. Those who have enjoyed revealing this long ago sins in order to discredit the Duggar family have actually revealed their own insensitive bloodthirst, for there was no consideration of the fact that the victims wanted this to be left in the past and ultimately a judge had the information on file destroyed—not to protect Josh, but the innocent victims. Janet and I love Jim Bob and Michelle and their entire family. They are no more perfect a family than any family, but their Christian witness is not marred in our eyes because following Christ is not a declaration of our perfection, but of HIS perfection. It is precisely because we are all sinners that we need His grace and His forgiveness. We have been blessed to receive God’s love and we would do no less than to extend our love and support for our friends. In fact, it is such times as this, when real friends show up and stand up. Today, Janet and I want to show up and stand up for our friends. Let others run from them. We will run to them with our support.

Mike Huckabee Says Josh Duggar’s Child Molestation Confession Doesn’t Count

Mike Huckabee’s defense of the Duggars hit an absurd level of hypocrisy when he claimed that Josh Duggar’s confession doesn’t really count during an appearance on Fox News.

Transcript via Fox News:

HUCKABEE: Megyn, he was an unadjudicated minor at the time that this happened. You’re an attorney. You understand that a person is innocent until proven guilty.

KELLY: But he confessed.

HUCKABEE: He was never adjudicated. He did not confess in a court of law. The law does not hold him accountable, even if he confesses. The bigger issue is not Josh, the bigger issue, the girls. How were the girls served? How were the victims served by the exploitation, by the release, the unlawful release, I’m going to go back and emphasize the illegal unlawful release of that information. It was not about the victims. It was about trying to go after the Duggars. They have been known as a family that is a Christian family. If a Liberal has anything like this kind of situation, it’s no big deal. And I think we all have heard the comparison between this and Lena Dunham who wrote about it in her book.

According to Huckabee, the Duggars are being persecuted by liberals. Apparently, a conservative evangelical Christian’s confession of several acts of child molestation only counts if it is made in a court of law. It is a tribute to the cumulative delusions of Fox News, the Duggars, and Mike Huckabee that they would continue to push the idea that Josh Duggar’s police report was illegally released.

Springdale City Attorney Earnest Cate has already debunked the idea that the release of the police report was illegal, “”On 5/20/15, in full compliance with Arkansas Law, the Springdale Police Department responded to a records request under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act. The requested record was not sealed or expunged, and at the time the report was filed, the person listed in the report was an adult. Any names of minors included in the report, as well as pronouns, were redacted from the report by the Springdale Police Department in compliance with Arkansas law prior to release.”

Huckabee is trying to boost his flatlining presidential campaign by playing that favorite card of Republicans everywhere; the media is out to get us.

Child molester Josh Duggar and his crime covering up parents have been turned into martyrs by Fox News and Mike Huckabee. The effort to defend the Duggars has hit an illogical level of absurd. If the Duggars are an example of his theory of criminal prosecution, Mike Huckabee is unfit to be president.

Josh Duggar isn’t the only alleged child molester tied to Mike Huckabee

His co-author John Perry was accused of child molestation in two legal cases, Buzzfeed reports

By

ohn Perry, who co-authored two books with former Arkansas governor and current Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, has been accused of child molestation in two separate lawsuits, Buzzfeed’s Andrew Kaczynski and Ilan Ben-Meir report.

Huckabee and Perry co-wrote “Do the Right Thing: Inside the Movement That’s Bringing Common Sense Back to America” and the ironically titled “Character Is the Issue.” Huckabee has come under fire for his repeated, vehement defenses of the Duggar family, who police records plainly demonstrate conspired to protect Josh Duggar even after they became that he had molested more than one of his sisters.

Nashville police department spokesperson Don Aaron told Buzzfeed News that “the alleged sexual battery was reported to have occurred when the victim was between the ages of 11 and 14,” but Perry was never prosecuted for the crime because the statute of limitations had expired by the time police became involved.

“As a result of the investigation, the allegations of sexual battery were sustained, but it was determined that the statute of limitations had tolled, barring prosecution. The victim was age 18 when she first disclosed the allegations to non-law enforcement and said at that time she did not want the matter reported to the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services or the police,” Aaron said.

The allegations came to light during Perry’s divorce proceedings, during which his ex-wife claimed that she “filed for divorce as a result of Mr. Perry’s inappropriate marital conduct, to which he admitted to in his Response to Interrogatories numbers 1 and 2.” Kaczynski and Ben-Meir suggest that the phrase “inappropriate marital conduct” is a euphemism for the alleged molestation, which couldn’t officially be entered into the record, as it had never been adjudicated.

In another series of lawsuit, Austin Davis is claiming that the Covenant Presbyterian Church in Nashville actively participated in a cover-up after Perry molested a girl from the time she was 11 until she was 13. The alleged victim told Buzzfeed that she doesn’t believe the church covered up the molestation, nor did it engage in a campaign to silence Davis.

Dog Gone Rumor: The son of former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee once killed a dog at Boy Scout camp.

A years-old bit of political gossip was brought back into the limelight in January 2015 when former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, in an interview promoting his new book, publicly criticized the parenting skills of the First Couple, Barack and Michelle Obama. Many pundits were quick to point out an incident that was much discussed during Huckabee’s 2008 presidential campaign, one touted as calling Huckabee’s own parenting skills into question.

On 11 July 1998, two young men working as counselors at Camp Pioneer in Hatfield, Arkansas, killed a dog at that Boy Scout camp. One of those young men was 19-year-old Clayton Frady of Texarkana and the other David Huckabee, the youngest son of Arkansas Governor Michael Dale “Mike” Huckabee. David Huckabee was 17 at the time of the slaying, although he would turn 18 less than two weeks later. Both young men were fired over the

incident.

And that is where the undisputed facts of the story leave off. All the rest of the details, including why the dog was killed, how the dog was killed, and whether Governor Huckabee attempted (successfully or otherwise) to forestall investigations into his son’s act, is up for grabs and may never be knowable. (Thus we can only verify the basic fact that David Huckabee killed a dog at a Boy Scout camp, not he ancillary issue of whether he truly did so “brutally” or “for fun.”)

While the dog itself was consistently described as a stray that had wandered onto the property, the only additional description of it came from Marcal Young, scout executive of the Caddo Area Council that operated the camp where the animal was killed, who said the canine was “probably a mixed breed.”

As to why the dog was killed, different people have offered different reasons. Governor Huckabee said in 2007 interview conducted by Larry King that “It was mangy. It looked like it was going to attack.” The father of the other young man fired over the dog’s slaying said in a 1998 news article his son had come upon one or more Scouts who had the dog “hung over a limb and choking,” so his son helped “put it out of its misery.” Scout executive Young said in another 1998 news article the two young men had told him the dog appeared to be ill.

No one connected to any of the principals apparently wanted to talk about how the dog was dispatched. The only person in that group who said anything about this was Danny Frady, father of Clayton Frady (the other young counselor fired over the incident), and even he didn’t say what his son did; he only averred that when his son came upon the animal, it was being hanged by others. Anonymous rumors about how the dog was killed claim Frady and Huckabee hanged the dog, slit its throat, and stoned it to death.

But why would the young men have been fired if what they had done was merely to put a suffering animal out of its misery or strike down a sickly animal that looked like it was about to attack someone? Scout executive Young, the person who dismissed them from their jobs, said the pair were fired because they had violated a Scout law: “A Scout is kind.”

A December 2007 Newsweek article reported shortly after the animal’s death, the local prosecuting attorney wrote a letter to the Arkansas state police asking them to investigate the case to see if the two young men involved had violated state animal cruelty laws. The state police did not look into the matter, and no charges were filed.

John Bailey, then director of Arkansas’s state police, told Newsweek personnel in Governor Huckabee’s employ (his chief of staff and personal lawyer) leaned on him to write a letter officially denying the local prosecutor’s request for an investigation. Wrote Newsweek: “Bailey, a career officer who had been appointed chief by Huckabee’s Democratic predecessor, said he viewed the lawyer’s intervention as improper and terminated the conversation.” Bailey was fired by Huckabee seven months later, with (according to Bailey) one of the reasons given by Huckabee being that “I couldn’t get you to help me with my son when I had that problem.” Newsweek quoted I.C. Smith, the former FBI chief in Little Rock, as saying “Without question, [Huckabee] was making a conscious attempt to keep the state police from investigating his son.”

Governor Huckabee denied using his influence to keep police out of the matter, saying to Larry King: “Well, let me categorically say that is absolutely not true. I never used my influence. In fact, if anything, I said treat it like you would anything else. I don’t want special treatment for him or against him. My son was a minor at the time. It was not a criminal issue. It was an issue that was dealt with.”

Mike Huckabee celebrates Kentucky clerk’s refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples

AP_HUCKABEE_CRUZ_150909_DG_12x5_1600 meme

The Kentucky county-clerk saga and the clash between gay marriage and religious freedom has entered the national political stage.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, came to the defense Wednesday of Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who has defied the Supreme Court by refusing to issue marriage licenses because of her religious objection to gay unions.

Mrs. Davis has refused “under God’s authority” to issue licenses to any couples — gay or otherwise — in the wake of the June Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage, though her efforts to seek relief in federal court have failed.

She says issuing marriage licenses to gay couples would make her complicit in sinful action and this is a “heaven or hell” matter for her.

In an email blast, Mr. Huckabee said he “visited” with Mrs. Davis, a Democrat, over the telephone Wednesday to offer “my prayers and support.”

Mr. Huckabee, a former Southern Baptist pastor, said Mrs. Davis is “standing strong for religious liberty” and said the Supreme Court “cannot and did not make the law” on marriage.

“Because Congress has made no law allowing for same sex marriage, Kim does not have the Constitutional authority to issue a marriage license to homosexual couples,” Mr. Huckabee said.

Mr. Huckabee is running ninth in national polls, and eighth in Iowa, which opens the nomination contest and is seen as crucial to Mr. Huckabee’s chances of winning the Republican presidential nomination next year.

The 60-year-old rode the support of religious and social conservatives to victory in the 2008 Iowa caucuses, but faces stiff competition this go-round for that powerful slice of the GOP electorate, including from Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, winner of the 2012 caucuses.

A spokeswoman for Mr. Jindal said her boss approves of Mrs. Davis’s action, but would not go so far as to call for clerks to refuse court rulings.

Mr. Jindal thinks “every person should be able to follow their conscience, and clerks who cannot in good conscience participate in same-sex marriage should not be forced to violate their beliefs,” campaign spokeswoman Shannon Bates told The Associated Press.

On the other side of the issue, both businesswoman Carly Fiorina and Sen. Lindsey Graham said that while they back religious-liberty concerns in private disputes, Mrs. Davis is a government official who must abide by a law she is refusing to carry out.

“The rule of law is the rule of law,” Mr. Graham said Wednesday on the show of conservative talk-radio host Hugh Hewitt.

“I appreciate her conviction, I support traditional marriage, but she’s accepted a job in which she has to apply the law to everyone,” Mr. Graham said. “[She] should comply with the law or resign.”

In a Tuesday appearance on the same show, Mrs. Fiorina said that while “it’s clear religious liberty is under assault in many, many ways,” this case is “a very different situation for her than someone in a hospital who’s asked to perform an abortion or someone at a florist who’s asked to serve a gay wedding.”

“This woman now needs to make a decision that’s [about] conscience: Is she prepared to continue to work for the government, be paid for by the government, in which case she needs to execute the government’s will … [or] sever her employment with the government and go seek employment elsewhere where her religious liberties would be paramount,” Mrs. Fiorina said.

The dispute itself dragged on Wednesday in Kentucky, with Mrs. Davis again refusing requests for marriage licenses by several couples and her lawyers asking for another stay in the order by U.S. District Judge David Bunning that she issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

The Davis team’s argument this time, according to legal papers filed Wednesday, is based on a dispute over Gov. Steve Beshear’s order that she issue the marriage licenses.

Barring a stay, Mrs. Davis will appear in court Thursday in which Judge Bunning will decide whether to hold her in contempt of court for refusing to carry out his order.

Mr. Huckabee applauded Mrs. Davis for her stand Wednesday, using both the Christian language of martyrdom and the Declaration of Independence’s wording about the source of rights.

Kim is a person of great conviction,” Mr. Huckabee said. “When people of conviction fight for what’s right they often pay a price, but if they don’t and we surrender, we will pay a far greater price for bowing to the false God of judicial supremacy.”

“Government is not God. No man — and certainly no unelected lawyer — has the right to redefine the laws of nature or of nature’s God,” Mr. Huckabee said.

Death for Drug Dealers and Quarantines for AIDS Victims: The Mike Huckabee You May Not Remember

What the presidential candidate’s first campaign says about his current one.

By Tim Murphy

On Tuesday, Mike Huckabee made it official. The former Republican Arkansas governor and Fox News host launched his second bid for the White House in his hometown of Hope, Arkansas, vowing to stop the “slaughter” of abortion and calling for the protection of the “laws of nature” from the “the false God of judicial supremacy.”

Huckabee is joining a GOP field that’s bigger and more competitive than the one he out-hustled to win the Iowa caucuses seven years ago. The Christian conservatives who flocked to the former Baptist preacher in 2008 can now turn toward other evangelical-minded candidates in the GOP presidential race. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is already in the hunt; former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and and ex-Texas Gov. Rick Perry are mulling bids. But Huckabee of today is also a far different candidate than the affable ex-gov who once rocked a bass guitar while stumping with Chuck Norris (although Walker, Texas Ranger is officially on board for this campaign too). Since dropping out of the 2008 race, he’s flaunted a more combative, occasionally conspiratorial brand of politics—flirting with birtherism, advising prospective enlistees to avoid joining the armed forces until President Barack Obama has left office, and, just last month, warning social conservatives that the United States is “moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity.”

By the standards of his political career, 2008 was in many ways an aberration. As he mounts a second run for the nomination, Huckabee is staying true to the kinds of red-meat issues he first entered politics to promote, in a long-shot 1992 bid for Senate against Democratic incumbent Dale Bumpers.

Huckabee, then a Baptist pastor who operated a small television station out of his Arkadelphia church, made sex and morality the centerpieces of his ’92 campaign—and he preached as fiery a message from the stump as he did from the pulpit. The novice politician let loose with eyebrow-raising tirades that occasionally put him to the right of the most fire-breathing conservatives. He endorsed quarantining AIDS patients, condemned efforts to shield homosexuals from discrimination, and called for the death penalty to be imposed on big-time drug dealers. He attacked Bumpers repeatedly as a libertine who supposedly supported giving condoms to 12-year-olds, sanctioned gay throuples, and voted to use taxpayer funds on “pornographic” art.

Huckabee’s 1992 platform was an artifact of the Moral Majority’s high-water mark. In interviews and on the stump he explained that the nation had strayed toward “selfishness and sensuality” and had been “savaged by radical groups bent on a moral and social agenda” at odds with Judeo-Christian values. “When I was in school, they passed out Gideon Bibles—today, they pass out condoms,” he said at stop after stop on the trail. In the new liberal order, Huckabee warned his hometown paper, the Hope Star, a family would consist of “three homosexual men living together.”

The gay agenda, he believed, was influencing and restricting the nation’s response to the AIDS crisis. He endorsed quarantining AIDS patients from the rest of society—a radical view even among conservatives at the time—while arguing that the severity of the epidemic had been exaggerated because gay people wielded so much political clout. The federal government should spend less money on AIDS, he insisted, and more on diseases that the afflicted had not brought on themselves, such as cancer.

“I realize a lot of people have received AIDS through blood transfusions, but AIDS is basically a lifestyle disease, and when the lifestyle is changed, the disease risk goes significantly down,” Huckabee said in one interview. AIDS advocates themselves, not taxpayers, should pony up: “Elizabeth Taylor went before Congress and made a big pitch that we needed more federal funding for AIDS. If Elizabeth Taylor would take one of the rings off her finger and sell it, she could get more money for AIDS research than the average Arkansan will make in two years of hard work. If she’s really serious about it, she’s got assets that she could dispose of. Why should she make me take money from my children’s future, and take it right off my table when she needs to cough up some of her own coin for that?”

Huckabee’s campaign literature made frequent note of Bumpers’ alleged favoritism toward gays. He attacked his opponent for supporting the Americans with Disabilities Act (because it included protections for AIDS patients) and a 1991 civil rights bill that would have prohibited housing discrimination based on sexual orientation. “Mr. Bumpers voted for all the bills which help to give homosexuals rights but takes away employers and others rights to protect themselves,” a Huckabee mailer asserted.

According to Huckabee, being gay wasn’t just a sin—it should be a criminal offense. Another Huckabee fact sheet noted that “Bumpers voted no on an amendment saying that ‘the homosexual movement threatens the strength and survival of the American family,’ and calling for enforcement of state sodomy laws,” which made gay sex a felony “crime against nature” in many states.

The ongoing conservative attack on the National Endowment for the Arts fit neatly into Huckabee’s narrative of Bumpers as a tool of the gay rights crowd. At the time, the federally funded agency was in the hot seat over a handful of artworks presenting religious symbols in ways critics considered blasphemous. Bumpers had said the art was in poor taste, but he voted not to defund the agency. Huckabee ran a radio ad accusing Bumpers of funding “pornography.” Bumpers called the ad “vile.”

“What’s vile,” Huckabee replied, “is having our tax dollars spent on photos of a man urinating in the mouth of another man, using tax dollars to fund a fictional story about the biblical character of Lazarus having homosexual liaisons with Jesus Christ before and after his resurrection, and funding for a jar of human urine in which a crucifix had been placed and entitled, ‘Piss Christ.'”

Then as now, Huckabee was a staunch opponent of abortion, a procedure he believed women underwent for superficial reasons. “Should we take a perfectly viable human being and end that human being’s life because the mother wants another semester of college or wants to play in a tennis tournament?” he asked one interviewer. And he proposed expanding the death penalty to include major drug dealers and anyone who, after committing a previous felony, shot someone with a gun—even if the shooting wasn’t fatal. “I know that’s harsh, but someone who has shot someone in the leg could easily shoot someone in the heart,” Huckabee said. (Huckabee did not respond to a request for comment on whether he still holds these views.)

Although Huckabee would later draw the ire of conservatives for raising taxes as governor of Arkansas, he took a die-hard stance on government spending. He called welfare “a new type of dependency and slavery” and warned that “the government has become a plantation system…The master is in the big house and we’re the sharecroppers out here.”

Late in the race, Huckabee discovered that his rival’s campaign had purchased more than a dozen videotapes of Huckabee’s old sermons, a potential opposition research gold mine. He suggested Bumpers watch them. “I hope he listens to the message on pornography that I presented a couple of years ago,” he said in a press release, “because then he’ll know why I feel so strongly about the way pornography degrades women and children, dehumanizes sex into animal behavior, and why I so vigorously oppose the use of my tax dollars being used to fund it.” The Bumpers campaign never did anything with the tapes Huckabee had encouraged the senator to watch.

Fire-and-brimstone Huckabee ultimately fell flat—he lost by 20 points. But the race provided a launching pad for his quick ascent up the political ladder. In later years, as he grew into a more polished politician, Huckabee became more protective of his old sermons. During the 2008 presidential campaign, reporters were told that videos of his sermons had been destroyed—or that they still existed and were open to the public but not to reporters. Huckabee, meanwhile, lasted longer than anyone expected in 2008 by crafting a reputation as a wisecracking pol who poked fun at Republicans who use “summer as a verb.”

“I think he’s the same guy who started out,” says Max Brantley, editor of the Arkansas Times, who covered the 1992 race. “He’s got a penchant for sort of cheap-shot quips. He thinks a lot of himself. He thinks he can talk himself out of anything. The main thing I still marvel at is how many people think he’s a nice guy, because he’s got a real mean streak.”

But at this point, after spending the years since the 2008 election feeding red meat to his base, the tapes may not even matter much. In just the last six months, he’s urged states to ignore a possible Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage and attacked Jay-Z for “arguably  crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife [Beyonce] as a sex object.” Researchers won’t have to scour church basements for dusty VHS cassettes containing his stem-winding sermons. They can just turn on the television.

Huckabee: The ‘Best Way’ To Deal With Poor Thieves Is To Sell Them As Slaves

By John Prager

Ben Carson isn’t the only GOP 2016 hopeful who thinks literal slavery is the answer to something. While the GOP’s current favorite among its small stable of interchangeable apologists thinks that enslavement is the answer to undocumented immigration, former Arkansas governor and friend of child molesters everywhere Mike Huckabee has another great as to how to improve Americans’ lives through slavery.

While you may assume, given his extreme-right leanings, that he might suggest African-Americans as the ones who should be in chains, Huckabee has a better idea: If poor people are caught stealing, they should be sold into slavery — even if, as it says in Proverbs, the Bible would command him to forgive a thief who steals to eat. On Wednesday during an appearance on Iowa morning radio program Mickelson in the Morning, the program’s host complained that the “criminal justice system has been taken over by progressives.”

To win this imaginary war with folks who believe people have rights, Jan Mickelson explained, we need look only to one book — no, not a book of laws. He means the Bible, of course. Suggesting the book of Exodus as a proposed basis for our laws, Mickelson explained that  “if a person steals, they have to pay it back two-fold, four-fold,” and “if they don’t have anything, we’re supposed to take them down and sell them.” Exodus 22 reads:

“When a man steals an ox or a sheep and butchers it or sells it, he must repay five cattle for the ox or four sheep for the sheep. [b]If a thief is caught in the act of breaking in, and he is beaten to death, no one is guilty of bloodshed.But if this happens after sunrise,[c] there is guilt of bloodshed. A thief must make full restitution. If he is unable, he is to be sold because of his theft. If what was stolen—whether ox, donkey, or sheep—is actually found alive in his possession, he must repay double.”

So, yes, it’s no secret that the Bible is incredibly pro-slavery — but this is 2015, and no one is really stealing ox or sheep anymore, and we do have a little document Republicans pretend to revere called the Constitution that makes selling thieves into slavery impossible. Nevertheless, Huckabee latched on to the “sell the poor into slavery” idea very quickly.

Mickelson explained that jails are a “pagan invention” inferior to the proud tradition of slavery. “We indenture them and they have to spend their time not sitting on their stump in a jail cell, they’re supposed to be working off the debt,” the host said. “Wouldn’t that be a better choice?”

“Well, it really would be,” Huckabee answered almost instantaneously. “Sometimes the best way to deal with a nonviolent criminal behavior is what you just suggested.”

Of course, as Think Progress notes, slavery is not a viable solution to much of anything in America — not anymore:

But U.S. law, unlike biblical penal prescriptions, forbids selling human beings like chattel. The United States also bans debtors’ prisons and the Supreme Court has ruled that it is unconstitutional to imprison people who are too destitute to pay court fines. (Contra these bans,manylocalities are being sued for still running debtors’ prisons.)

In August, Mickelson pre-emptively agreed with Ben Carson that immigrants who can’t display their papers should become “property of the state,” and “then we start to extort or exploit or indenture your labor.” When a caller pointed out that “it sounds an awful lot like slavery,” Mickelson replied, “Well, what’s wrong with slavery?”

Unfortunately, we’re dealing with a party that has trouble recognizing the moral failings of a pro-slavery stance. This is why it is important to get out and vote next year. Thanks to voter apathy on our side, we now have both chambers of Congress filled with people who share these, and other horrible viewpoints. The GOP can’t even elect a Speaker of the House because the House of representatives is held hostage by a group of about 40 extremists who will only vote for someone if they agree to gut social programs and defund women’s health care.

If you’re not registered to vote, do it. If your state has repressive voter ID legislation in place, get all necessary documentation so you are not deprived of your rights. This upcoming election is, perhaps, the most important in recent history because if we lose there, we will lose everything we have achieved over the past sixty years.

MY COMMENTS TO CHRISTO-FASCIST PSYCHO MIKE HUCKABEE

Well you disgusting, low-life, piece of shit, Christo-Fascist, Mike Huckabee, what can we really say about your disgusting, sorry ass? Why I will let the bible and your Jesus you proclaim to follow, do most of the speaking for me.

1. Jesus on the subject of those who harm children:

Matthew 18: 1-10 KJV: 1. At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2. And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

10 “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.”

So Mike Huckabee. I guess your buddies Josh Duggar and John Perry should do one of two things….either tie a huge millstone around their necks and throw themselves into the ocean above the Mariana Trench, or cut their hands and dicks off.

2. Jesus on adultery and what should be done to adulteresses, like your buddy Kim Davis.

Mark 10:2-12 KJV: And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him. And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you? And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away. And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. 10 And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter. 11 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. 12 And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

What does the bible says should be done to adulterers?

Leviticus 20:10: 10 And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

Now Mike Huckabee, seeing that your whore adulteress, Kim Davis was certainly NOT a virgin, on her second, third or fourth wedding night, let’s see what the bible says should be done to her about that.

Deuteronomy 20: 13-21: 13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, 14 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: 15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel’s virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: 16 And the damsel’s father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; 17 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter’s virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. 18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him; 19 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days. 20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: 21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

I guess Mike Huckabee, if you are a real man of God and proclaim how gays and lesbians should be put to death, because of Leviticus then YOU as a man of God, should take your whore, adulteress, Kim Davis to her fathers house, and stone her to death at the doorway. For if YOU do not, then YOU are allowing an abomination in your midst.

Next up Mike Huckabee, let’s see what Jesus and the bible says about helping the poor:

Matthew 25: 34-46 KJV: 34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 For I was an hungry, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Proverbs 19:17: KJV: 17 He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.

Deuteronomy 15: 7-11 KJV: If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth. Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the Lord against thee, and it be sin unto thee. 10 Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the Lord thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto. 11 For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.

Luke 14: 12-14 KJV: 12 Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee. 13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: 14 And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.

Proverbs 14:31: 31 He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.

Leviticus 25:35 KJV: 35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.

Yes Mike Huckabee, with the way YOU and your fellow Repugnants, attack the poor, and the evil you do against them, you certainly are no Christian. Your wanting to put a poor person into slavery, because they had to steal to get food? That is far above an abomination. For your bible and your Jesus commanded YOU and your fellow Repugnants, who dare call yourselves Christians, to do all that you can to help the poor, not destroy them, take away what little they have, and insult and denigrate them. I guess Mike Huckabee, that YOU will not be spending your eternity where YOU and your fellow Repugnants THINK you will be spending your eternity now will you?

Huckabee, you support and defend child molesters. You support and defend the bigots and haters of your psychotic religion. You support and defend ChristoFascism.

You also proclaim that the United States and the Founding Fathers, founded this nation on Christianity. Yet YOU and others like you, who spew these well worn lies out of your well used outhouse ChristoFascist pieholes, apparently never really read the words of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, George Washington, Thomas Paine and many others. So I will leave you with this you disgusting, low-life, piece of human waste ChristoFascist. This comes directly from President Thomas Jefferson’s own religious freedom act titled the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom.

What exactly is ChristoFascism?

WHAT EXACTLY IS CHRISTOFASCISM?

One of the many examples of ChristoFascism.
One of the many examples of ChristoFascism.

The Urban Dictionary defines ChristoFascists as this:

Christian religious extremist. Often a person who believes in forcing a right-wing Christian agenda on the rest of the world. Also known as a ‘fundamentalist’ or more recently ‘evangelical’.

Since many Christofascists bristle at the term ‘fundamentalist’ there has been a movement to get the media to refer to them as ‘evangelicals.’ However the term ‘evangelical’ is a misleading one as many Christian sects are evangelical in nature and not all evangelical Christians have such extremem views or political agendas. Christofascist is a more descriptive term for these right-wing extremists.

Urban Dictionary: Christofascist

The following definition comes from Wikipedia:

Christofascism (a portmanteau of Christian and fascism) is a concept in Christian theology first mentioned by Dorothee Sölle, a Christian theologian and writer, in her book Beyond Mere Obedience: Reflections on a Christian Ethic for the Future in 1970.[1][2][3] To Sölle, Christofascism was caused by the embracing of authoritarian theology by the Christian church. According to Sölle, it is an arrogant, totalitarian, imperialistic attitude characteristic of the Protestant Reich Church that she believed to be alive and well in the theological scene of the late 20th and turn of the 21st century.[4][5]

Usage of the term became much more prominent in 2006–08,[6] as a backlash against increasing usage of the word Islamofascism by conservatives in the U.S., for example David Horowitz.[7]

Interpretation of Soelle

Tom Faw Driver, Paul Tillich Professor Emeritus at Union Theological Seminary, expressed concern “that the worship of God in Christ not divide Christian from Jew, man from woman, clergy from laity, white from black, or rich from poor”. To him, Christianity is in constant danger of Christofascism, stating that “[w]e fear christofascism, which we see as the political direction of all attempts to place Christ at the center of social life and history” and that “[m]uch of the churches’ teaching about Christ has turned into something that is dictatorial in its heart and is preparing society for an American fascism”.[8][9]

Christofascism “disposed or allowed Christians, to impose themselves not only upon other religions but other cultures, and political parties which do not march under the banner of the final, normative, victorious Christ” – as Knitter describes Sölle’s view.[5][10]

George Hunsinger, director of the Centre for Barth Studies at Princeton Theological Seminary, regards the conception of Christofascism as being an attack, at a very sophisticated level of theological discourse, on the biblical depiction of Jesus. He equates what is viewed as Christofascism with “Jesus Christ as depicted in Scripture” and contrasts it with the “nonnormative Christology” that is offered as an alternative by some theologians, which he characterizes as extreme relativism that reduces Jesus Christ to “an object of mere personal preference and cultural location” and that he finds difficult to see as not contributing to the same problems encountered by the Christian church in Germany that were noted by theologian Karl Barth.[11]

Christomonism

Douglas John Hall, Professor of Christian Theology at McGill University, relates Sölle’s concept of Christofascism to Christomonism, that inevitably ends in religious triumphalism and exclusivity, noting Sölle’s observation of American fundamentalist Christianity that Christomonism easily leads to Christofascism, and that violence is never far away from militant Christomonism. (Christomonism, accepts only one divine person, Jesus Christ.) He states that the over-divinized (“high”) Christology of Christendom is demonstrated to be wrong by its “almost unrelieved anti-Judaism“. He suggests that the best way to guard against this is for Christians not to neglect the humanity of Jesus Christ in favour of his divinity, and to remind themselves that Jesus was also a Jewish human being.[12][13][14]

American history and politics

American historians and political commentators have also used the term to refer to politico-religious tendencies in American society.

Chris Hedges and David Neiwert contend that the beginnings of American Christofascism was during the Great Depression, when Americans espoused forms of fascism that were “explicitly ‘Christian’ in nature.”[15]:88 Hedges writes that “fundamentalist preachers such as Gerald B. Winrod and Gerald L. K. Smith fused national and Christian symbols to advocate the country’s first crude form of Christo-fascism.”[16] Smith’s Christian Nationalist Crusade said that “Christian character is the basis of all real Americanism.”[16] Hedges also considers another prominent advocate of Christofascism was William Dudley Pelley.[15]:88

By the late 1950s, followers of these philosophies became the John Birch Society, whose policy positions and rhetoric have greatly impacted modern dominionists.[16] Likewise, the Posse Comitatus movement began with former associates of Pelley and Smith.[15]:90 The 1980s saw the Council for National Policy[16] and the Moral Majority[17][18] carry on the tradition, while the patriot movement and militia movement represented efforts to mainstream the philosophy in the 1990s.[15]:90

Policy

Episcopal priest Carter Heyward, professor of theology at Episcopal Divinity School, uses the term to describe political and social policies that exclude nontraditional families in the name of Christianity, a practice she described as “arrogant and blasphemous.”[19]

Judeo-Christofascism

Jonathan Turley referred to conservatives who wished to make Representative Keith Ellison, a Muslim, swear in on a Bible as “Judeo-Christofascists”, in response to the use of “Islamofascists.”[20]

Miscellaneous usage

Incidents of anti-abortion violence, including the bombings committed by Eric Robert Rudolph and the assassination of George Tiller, have also been called Christofascism.[15]:90–91[21]

The term caused controversy in 2007, when Melissa McEwan, a campaign blogger for then-presidential candidate John Edwards, referred to religious conservatives as “Christofascists” on her personal blog.[22][23]

Christofascism: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Christians-under-attack

What is Christofascism?

By Plubius

This article originally appeared on TCS Daily, and appears here in a modified and shortened version.

“Christofascist”–used to describe the accused Scott P. Roede in the killing of Dr. Tiller, has been met by protests from Christians who say the term is an insult to their religion. The meaning and origin of the concept, as well as the legitimacy of complaints about it, have become relevant — perhaps urgently so.

Christofascism refers to use of the faith of Christianity as a cover for totalitarian ideology. This radical phenomenon is embodied among American Christians today in the various Militia movements, White Supremacist, and Christian Identity movements, and where these radical, armed, and Christian racist groups overlap with the Pro-Life movement and the right wing of the American political landscape, including the fringes of the Republican party.

Political typologies should make distinctions, rather than confusing them, and Christofascism is neither a loose nor an improvised concept. It should be employed sparingly and precisely. The indicated movements should be treated as Christofascist, first, because of their congruence with the defining characteristics of classic fascism, especially in its most historically-significant form–German National Socialism.

Fascism is distinguished from the broader category of extreme right-wing politics by its willingness to defy public civility and openly violate the law. As such it represents a radical departure from the tradition of ultra-conservatism. The latter aims to preserve established social relations, through enforcement of law and reinforcement of authority. But the fascist organizations of Mussolini and Hitler, in their conquests of power, showed no reluctance to rupture peace and repudiate parliamentary and other institutions; the fascists employed terror against both the existing political structure and society at large. It is a common misconception of political science to believe, in the manner of amateur Marxists, that Italian fascists and Nazis sought maintenance of order, to protect the ruling classes. Both Mussolini and Hitler agitated against “the system” governing their countries. Their willingness to resort to street violence, assassinations, and coups set the Italian and German fascists apart from ordinary defenders of ruling elites, which they sought to replace. This is an important point that should never be forgotten. Fascism is not merely a harsh dictatorship or oppression by privilege.

Christofascism similarly pursues its aims through the willful, arbitrary, and gratuitous disruption of (global) society, either by terrorist conspiracies or by violation of the peace between states .  In its long and inglorious history, the KKK frequently made recourse to the former weapon. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, white supremacist Ku Klux Klan members in the Southern United States engaged in arson, beatings, cross burning, destruction of property, lynching, murder, rape, tar-and-feathering, and whipping against blacks, other social or ethnic minorities, and whites who stood in their way. These are not acts of protest, but calculated strategies for political advantage through undiluted violence. The Army of God shows fascist methods when executing attacks against abortion clinics and doctors across the United States. A number of terrorist attacks, including the Centennial Olympic Park bombing during the 1996 Summer Olympics, were carried out by individuals and groups with ties to the Christian Identity and Christian Patriot movements; including the Aryan Nations and the Lambs of Christ. Christofascism  is not limited to America, and American Christofascts is not limited to America: a group called Concerned Christians unsuccessfully planned to attack holy sites in Jerusalem at the end of 1999, believing that their deaths would “lead them to heaven.”

Christofascism has global reach.  The fascist Iron Guard in Romania during the interwar period and in the second world war was explicitly Christian–its official title was the “Legion of the Archangel Michael;” Christian fascism also exists in the form of Ulster Protestant terrorism, and was visible in the (Catholic) Blue Shirt movement active in the Irish Free State during the 1920s and 1930s. Both the Iron Guard and the Blue Shirts attracted noted intellectuals; the cultural theorist Mircea Eliade in the first case, the poet W.B Yeats in the second. Many similar cases could be cited.

Fascism rested, from the economic perspective, on resentful middle classes, frustrated in their aspirations and anxious about loss of their position. The Italian middle class was insecure in its social status; the German middle class was completely devastated by the defeat of the country in the First World War. Both became irrational with rage at their economic difficulties; this passionate and uncontrolled fury was channeled and exploited by the acolytes of Mussolini and Hitler. The Army of God and the Militia movements are, like the KKK before them, based largely the middle and lower classes of the Southern and rural United states fearful of losing their unstable hold on prosperity and angry at the many obstacles, in state and society, to their ambitions.  They believe themselves to be Real Americans, and the victim of discrimination by forces larger then themselves that are destroying America: secularism, socialism, sexual and moral lassitude, or in their words: the Godless, the nanny state and the fags.  Anti-semitism varies.

Fascism was imperialistic; it demanded expansion of the German and Italian spheres of influence. While many Christofascist are anti-government, many also see the power of the state as useful to its aims, and these contradictory streams [similar to the brown-shirt schizoid worship and abhorrence of power and hierarchy] of Christofascism have similar fascistic ambitions: the occupation of Iraq being stage one in the domination of the middle east under a War on Terror that in the words of George W. Bush, “a Crusade.”  — which if you don’t know means Holy War.

Fascism was totalitarian; i.e. it fostered a totalistic world view–a distinct social reality that separated its followers from normal society. Christofascism parallels fascism by imposing a strict division between Christians and alleged unbelievers.  I think I do not need to belabor the point, other then to point out that we all are familiar with those streams Christianity that condemn to hell all others who do not adopt their rigid interpretation of Scripture.  Fuse that religious bigotry with white power, and you have a potent mix.
Fascism was paramilitary; indeed, the Italian and German military elites were reluctant to accept the fascist parties’ ideological monopoly. The Army of God, the KKK, and the Militia movements are all paramilitary.

But what of those primitive Chrisians who declare that “Christofascim” is a slur? I do not believe these characteristics are intrinsic to any element of the faith of Christianity. Christofascism is a distortion of Christianity, exactly as Italian and German fascism represented perversions of respectable patriotism in those countries. Nobody argues today that Nazism possessed historical legitimacy as an expression of German nationalism; only Nazis would make such claims, to defend themselves. Similarly, Christofascists and their allies argue that their doctrines are “just Christianity.” But German culture existed for centuries, and exists today, without submitting to Nazi values; Christianity created a world-spanning civilization, surviving in a healthy condition in many countries today, without the Army of God or the KKK.

In anticipation of a counter to that last point, I will stress that authoritarianism and fascism are not the same. To emphasize, fascism is something different, and much worse, than simple dictatorship, however cruel the latter may be. That is a lesson that should have been learned 70 years ago, when German Nazism demonstrated that it was a feral and genocidal aberration in modern European history, not merely another form of oppressive rightist rule, or a particularly wild variety of colonialism.

Similarly, the violence wreaked by the Army of God, and Scott P. Roede, and the KKK before them, has been different from other expressions of reactionary Christianity, conservative Christianity or violent corruption in the post-colonial world. Between democracy, civilized values, and normal religion on one side, and Christofascism on the other, there can be no compromise: there is bright line, our republic on one side and the Christofascists on the other, and you are either with us or against us.  An earlier President was eerily correct when he foresaw “our young Democracy is fragile . . . this may be Christian Intolerance’s last and best opportunity to stop the advance of Liberty.” As with the Nazis, nothing short of a victory for democracy can assure the world’s security.

NOW HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF CHRISTOFASCISM…PRACTICED BY THOSE WHO PROCLAIM THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS:

Story One:

Pastor Wants Atheist Registry to Track Atheists like Sex Offenders

Aug 31 2011 Published by

“No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another, and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him.” – Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson and his idealism be damned. What internet pastor Mike Stahl wants is an “atheist registry” to keep track of these dangerous elements in our society, like people who don’t believe in god, or any gods. This is a story right out of Nazi Germany. What’s next? Will we have our children “outing” us as atheists and pagans and heretics, and turning us over to the fundamentalist morality police to be conveniently culled from the herd?

Now as a disclaimer, I’m no atheist myself. I’m a polytheist. I should make that plain at the outset. But I don’t lose any sleep over people believing or not believing in my gods. I take Thomas Jefferson’s attitude toward the whole belief thing: “it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.” Live and let live. I really don’t care what other people believe unless they try to force their belief or non-belief on me. Then we have a problem.

Here’s Stahl’s logic, which we have thanks to Ed Brayton at Dispatches from the Culture War because the cowardly Stahl is in hiding: he opens his blog to invitees only:

Brothers and Sisters , I have been seriously considering forming a ( Christian ) grassroots type of organization to be named “The Christian National Registry of Atheists” or something similar . I mean , think about it . There are already National Registry’s for convicted sex offenders , ex-convicts , terrorist cells , hate groups like the KKK , skinheads , radical Islamist’s , etc..

This type of “National Registry” would merely be for information purposes . To inform the public of KNOWN ( i.e., self-admitted) atheists . For example , let’s say you live in Colorado Springs , Colorado , you could simply scroll down ( from the I-Net site /Blog ) I would have , to the State of Colorado , and then when you see “Colorado Springs” , you will see the names of all the self-admitted atheist(s) who live there ( e.g., if an atheist’s name happened to be “Phil Small” ) . The individual’s physical address , and other known personal information would NOT be disclosed ( though , perhaps a photo could be ).

If this all seems completely incomprehensible and pointless to you, Pastor Stahl has his reasons:

Now , many (especially the atheists ) , may ask “Why do this , what’s the purpose ?” Duhhh , Mr. Atheist , for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net – to INFORM the public ! I mean , in the City of Miramar , Florida , where I live , the population is approx. 109,000 . My family and I would sure like to know how many of those 109,000 are ADMITTED atheists ! Perhaps we may actually know some . In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism . Or perhaps they are radical atheists , whose hearts are as hard as Pharaoh’s , in that case , if they are business owners , we would encourage all our Christian friends , as well as the various churches and their congregations NOT to patronize them as we would only be “feeding” Satan.
Frankly , I don’t see why anyone would oppose this idea – including the atheists themselves ( unless of course , they’re actually ashamed of their atheist religion , and would prefer to stay in the ‘closet.’ ).

The dangers of atheism? Seriously? Shouldn’t we be more worried about the dangers of theocracy, the threat posed to the U.S. Constitution and First Amendment and the possibility of morality police invading our homes?

So why is it anyway that fundamentalists get so riled up if we don’t all believe in their god and their god alone? Well, they seem to think that their god is going to punish everyone, including (especially) them if we don’t all obey the rules – that Old Testament collective guilt thing with America as the next Sodom and Gomorrah.

Personally, I think a better solution is jettisoning any god who is going to punish us for any reason whatsoever. I wouldn’t waste spit on such a deity. That was one of the reasons I left Christianity behind in the first place. And seeing obscene ideas like this just makes that decision seem ever better in hindsight.

Maybe we should have a list of fundamentalist Christians. Why would any fundamentalist Christian oppose this idea? I mean, why would they unless they’re ashamed of their religion and want to stay in the closet (to use Stahl’s own words)? I mean, don’t we all have the right to know if our neighbor is a right wing lunatic who might open fire one day because he thinks his god told him to? I don’t know about you folks, but I’ve yet to hear of an atheist (or a polytheist for that matter) opening fire on folks because a god told him to.

I’ve known atheists and I’ve known Satanists and they were all much more reasonable and well-adjusted folks than Pastor Rick.

What’s amusing about Stahl’s attitude is he talks about being fearless and above board unless you have something to hide. Then when it all explodes in his face and people get angry with him for being a bigot, he makes his blog private and deletes his Facebook link. Even the cache is gone. I guess only atheists are supposed to have the courage of their convictions, eh, Pastor Mike? Some witness for your god you are! Seems like a lot of cowardice going around lately, what with Bryan Fischer, as I reported here this morning, refusing to stand up for his beliefs in open debate with the public he wants to force to go along with him.

Christian Pastor Calls For Atheists And Gays To Be Put To Death

From the Americans Against the Tea Party article: Christian Pastor Calls For Atheists And Gays To Be Put To Death

Blogger, author, troop-hater, and rape apologist, and all-around good guy “Reverend” Michael Crook feels there is a rape problem in America. The problem? The problem is that we think it exists. Oh, and atheists and gays should die.

Crook may be remembered for his website that demonized the troops for their choice to fight for their country, claiming that they are overpaid for their work (among a number of other awful things). Shortly following, he posed as an eighteen year old girl on Craigslist and, after learning prospective men’s personal information, proceeded to harass them–even posting their information on a web site dedicated to shaming men who sought sex on Craigslist.

After being thoroughly embarrassed by Sean Hannity of all people, Crook waged war on bloggers who posted screenshots of what must have been an overwhelmingly embarrassing experience for him–filing false DMCA complaints in an effort to take down anyone who spoke in any way ill of him. As part of a lawsuit settlement, Crook issued a public apology for his harassment.

Crook, who has referred to rape as “surprise sex,” said of the Steubenville rape victim, “She wore clothing that could, in my opinion, be reasonably perceived by those in her age bracket as inviting sexual contact, and by others as just plain “slutty,” which is an element that conveniently seems to exist in many accusations of “rape.” After her assailants received a slap on the wrist for their actions, Crook lamented that two young men’s lives are ruined.

It was once reported on his now-defunct blog that he had died, but rumors of his death were greatly exaggerated.

But what is he doing now?

Crook is still around, maintaining a Twitter feed with a whopping roughly-150 followers in which he spews his hatred–and if this is the first time you’ve heard of him, you’re going to be amazed that one human body can contain this much malice for humankind!

Crook covers a wide variety of topics in his veritable barrage of bigoted ramblings: from how rape isn’t real, to how atheists are worse than child molesters. Please enjoy (read: try not to vomit while looking at) what is quite possibly the most high-speed spewing of hateful garbage on the internet!

Psychotic Christo-Fascist Theodore Shoebat

Now here is a real winner. This one is a certifiable, psychopath who is more than likely going to go off the deep end one day and commit a mass murder. I am going to post a couple of articles about this psychotic, taken mostly from Right Wing Watch and his YouTube videos. My comments about this disgusting, lowlife ChristoFascists will be posted right after the posting of the stories.

Theodore Shoebat: Homosexuality Leads To Cannibalism, Kill Those Who Won’t Submit To Christianity

Psychotic, murderous, ChristoFascist, Theodore Shoebat
Psychotic, murderous, ChristoFascist, Theodore Shoebat

Theodore Shoebat posted a video yesterday calling for the institution of a “Christian collectivist society” in America in which collective punishment is imposed and where those who refuse to submit to Christianity are put to death.

As Shoebat explained, the problem with America is that it is too individualistic, only punishing criminals for the crimes they have committed instead of imposing collective punishments in an effort to root out the beliefs or behaviors that led to the crime in the first place.

For instance, he said, the correct response to the crimes of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer would have been to punish him for his transgressions, but then to also outlaw homosexuality because “it leads to serial killers, it leads to cannibalism, it leads to murder” and is a danger to the collective Christian society.

Link to video:Theodore Shoebat Says Homosexuality Should Be Outlawed Because It Leads To Murder & Cannibalism

Non-Christians would be allowed to live in this society, Shoebat magnanimously stated, provided that they “respect and honor the Christian faith.” Those who refuse to do so and seek to promote any sort of “diabolical belief system or an explicitly anti-Christian sentiment” would be put to death.

Theodore Shoebat: Force Gays To Submit To Christianity Through ‘Death And Strong Suppression’

Last week, virulently anti-gay activist Theodore Shoebat posted a video declaring that gays have a deeply demonic desire to murder Christians and warning all the “sodomites” that they will one day be violently forced to submit to Christian values.

Citing reports that Kentucky clerk Kim Davis had received death threats for refusing to allow the county office to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, Shoebat said that this should come as no surprise because every gay person harbors a violent desire to kill Christians.

“When we see these threats, it really shines a light on the demonic and satanic and violent desires that these homos have,” he said. “Do not think for a second that the sodomites would treat us peacefully! Do not think for a second that the sodomites do not want to commit persecution against Christians. I do not hesitate at all to say that the sodomites — and I say this with confidence — that the sodomites would not hesitate to kill people like me, to kill Kim Davis, to kill other Christians, to kill anyone who is opposing their agenda.”

But gay activists will not be allowed to get away with persecuting and murdering Christians, Shoebat vowed, because right-wing militias are already rising up to protect people like Davis and to force gays to submit to Christianity.

“It’s either/or,” Shoebat declared. “You either make the sodomites submit to Christian morality, to the law of God, to the law of Heaven or they will force you to submit. There is no other choice … This is a message to you sodomites out there, if you are listening, expect to one day submit to us and submit to the law of God.”

Link to video: RWW News: Theodore Shoebat Says ‘Sodomites’ Will Be Forced To Submit To Christianity

And just in case Shoebat wasn’t clear on how exactly he intends to make gays submit to the law of God, he wrote a separate post once again calling for them to be put to death:

Since homosexuality is against the sacrament of marriage, which is the building block of society, then it is against the common good, and the very Faith of our civilization, and thus is an enemy to the Christian people and should be treated as sedition. Let the heretics who believe in such license read where St. Paul refers to these sodomites as “deserving of death,” and also those who “approve of those who practice them” (Romans 1:32), and let them dare say that homosexuality should be allowed in a Christian society … A small step is a great fall, and a little leaven spoils the whole batch; if we allow such wickedness to be done in incriminates [sic], then they will soon be done in great numbers. Crush the eggs of the baby serpents before they hatch. The sodomite, the atheist, the fanatic feminist, the Muslim — all such must be deemed as criminals and enemies to civilization, for they war against the Faith, promote death and hate life.

They should be told to leave their wicked ways under coercion, and if that does not work, then death and strong suppression is the only solution. We cannot allow someone the freedom to do evil, for this will only increase the presence of darkness in the society, and it will become an internal enemy … Let the governments take up the Holy Cross, and destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8) Let it destroy the advancers of antichrist, and utterly annihilate the acolytes of the evil doctrines of Sodom. Christus vincit!

Allow us to point out once again that Shoebat is not just some fringe zealot, but was actually featured in Janet Porter’s anti-gay documentary “Light Wins” along with several Republican members of Congress and GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rand Paul.

Shoebat: Gays Must Be Put To Death Before Turning Boy Scouts ‘Into A Nazi-Like Gay Youth Club’

As we noted earlier this month, the fact that Theodore Shoebat consistently calls for gays to be put to death has not prevented him from regularly being interviewed on Religious Right news programs or appearing in an anti-gay film alongside several Republican lawmakers and presidential candidates.

Today, he posted a new column warning that the proposal by the Boy Scouts of America to lift the ban on gay scout masters is all part of an effort to “transform the Scouts into a Nazi-like gay youth club” that will be used to attack Christianity …. and that is why “there is only one solution to the homosexual agenda, and that is death”:

The Boy Scouts are expected to be accepting openly adult homosexual leaders, and this most dangerous move will only further enable these sodomites to rape and sexually molest young boys and male youths …  You will have sodomite Scout leaders with young men, 15 or 16 years old, what do you think is going to be occurring in those sodomites’ minds? Evil, filthy, unnatural lusts, lusts that will eventually be carried out, with the Scout leader sodomizing his innocent victims … Mark my words, when the decision to accept openly homosexual Scout leaders is made, expect the homosexuals to sodomize and rape young boys and male youths. Expect them to groom young boys and recruit them into the homosexual cause, as they have been doing for so many years now.

The sodomites molest children and teenagers, and groom them, and from such you have an army of advocates wanting the whole world to be molested.

But will you do anything about it? I doubt it.

Haven’t you people learned from the Holy Scriptures? Do not the sublime words of the prophets and the Apostles warn us and tell us? Does not the Scriptures tell us about how the people of Sodom wanted to rape the angels; does not the Scriptures tell us of the evil Benjaminites who wanted to rape the men in the house (Judges 19); does not the Apostle Paul tell us in Romans that the homosexuals are full of murder and are “inventors of evil things” (Romans 1:30)

We have ignored these words. For if we didn’t, we would know that the sodomites are constantly contriving all sorts of evils. If they want to enter the Boy Scouts, its for evil; if they want to enter the military, its for evil; if they want to enter the schools, its for evil; sports, its for evil; the Church, its for evil.

I believe that the reason why the homosexuals want to enter the Boy Scouts is because they want to recruit young boys, and transform the Scouts into a Nazi-like gay youth club; young brainwashed children who can be used as soldiers against Christianity.

This is why I say that there is only one solution to the homosexual agenda, and that is death. What does the Scriptures say? “ If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13)

Yet this most erudite law is ignored, hated, or treated with contempt by modern Christians.

Theodore Shoebat Calls For A Global ‘Inquisition’ To Put Gays To Death

Theodore Shoebat, who was among the dozens of anti-gay activists, Republican members of Congress and GOP presidential hopefuls to be featured in Janet Porter’s recent anti-gay “Light Wins” documentary, posted a new video over the weekend calling for a global “Inquisition” to eradicate homosexuality once and for all.

Outraged over reports that a doctor had been let go by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center for repeatedly spreading anti-gay material to colleagues, Shoebat posted a video declaring that “sodomite homo Sharia” was being imposed on America by “sodomite bastards” and “faggots” who do nothing but “go around spreading AIDS.”

The only solution, he declared, is the imposition of a global law criminalizing homosexuality that will be enforced by a modern-day Inquisition with the power to put gays to death.

“I’m sick and tired of the homo tyranny,” he said. “What the world needs is a collective law … What we need is the laws of God, the virtues of Heaven to become the law of the world. That is the bottom line. Do I believe in Christian world domination? Absolutely. I would be a liar if I said I didn’t. Do I believe in Christian supremacy? Absolutely. Do I believe in democracy? Hell no. Do I believe in some sort of a democratic socialist republic? Hell no. I believe in monarchy, I believe in Inquisitions, I believe we need to revive the system of the Middle Ages that we had; we had no fag problems, we didn’t have a lot of serial killers back in those days, we didn’t have frickin drug cartel problems, we had none of the crap. We didn’t have no fags asking to be married. None of that garbage.”

“It’s homo tyranny and it needs to be destroyed,” Shoebat continued, “Christian world domination needs to be established and homosexuality needs to be deemed as a crime. And the homos need to be told, hey, you gotta stop that and if they don’t stop that then, I’m sorry, we have an Inquisition and that Inquisition will enact the death penalty, as Scripture tells us.”

With extreme views like this, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise to learn that places like Matt Barber’s BarbWire website are now quietly trying to cover up any ties to Shoebat.

Theodore Shoebat Unhappy With Nomination Of A ‘Flaming Fag’ To Serve As Army Secretary

Theodore Shoebat is not particularly fond of gay people. In fact, he has made it quite clear time and again that he thinks that gays need to be forced to submit to Christianity or else be put to death … but that has not stopped him from regularly being interviewed on Christian news programs or being featured in an anti-gay documentary along with several Republican members of Congress and GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rand Paul.

Naturally, Shoebat was less than pleased with the news that President Obama has nominated Eric Fanning, a gay man, to serve as Secretary of the Army, so he posted a video voicing his displeasure with President Obama’s satanic effort to fill the military with “fags.”

“In 2012, Obama got rid of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” Shoebat declared, “which basically means that fags can be out in the open in their flaming fag ways, regardless of the fact that they are decreasing the morale of fellow soldiers. It doesn’t matter, they can be flaming homos right there in the U.S. military, they can be sodomizing each other right there in the military barracks.”

The nomination of “Eric Flaming Fag,” as Shoebat put it, by the “pro-fag, pro-sodomy, anti-family, anti-Christ president” is just further “evidence as to the bullcrap that we have been seeing throughout the years from this satanic administration.”

ALRIGHT THEODORE SHOEBAT…..YOU PSYCHOTIC, CHRISTOFASCIST LET’S GET SOME THINGS STRAIGHT HERE.

  1. Ever heard of the “Founding Fathers”?  Well one of them, Thomas Jefferson, would slap the spit out of you. See President Jefferson wrote his own religious freedom act and it was titled the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom. Interesting what he proclaimed in section II of the act. “II. Be it enacted by the General Assembly, that no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods…”. Mr Jefferson also slammed the Christian religion and Christo-Fascists like yourself many times. Now I take up Mr Jefferson’s mantle to stand up to you disgusting, demonic, evil, murderous, psychopaths I call Christo-Fascists…which YOU fit the bill perfectly. Mr Jefferson, would in fact, take your sorry, disgusting ass to the wood shed and teach you a few lessons in human decency, and respect of others. Then again, from everything I have seen of you in your disgusting videos and read about you? YOU have no soul, you are nothing. YOU are a brain-dead, scumbag, who should have done to YOU exactly what YOU want to do to others.

YOU had better have your will written out, your life insurance paid off and kissed goodbye to your inbred, outhouse dwelling scumbag loved ones….because the next time they would see your sorry ass? I would send you back home to them, gift wrapped, in a fucking body bag, with your useless head ripped off and shoved up your disgusting ass.

NOW THEODORE SHOEBAT, YOU DISGUSTING TROGLODYTE CHRISTO-FASCIST, YOU GOT THE GUTS TO PUT YOUR FUCKING MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS? YOU THREATENED ME BY YOUR POSTINGS, YOU THREATENED MY GAY AND LESBIAN FRIENDS BY YOUR POSTINGS. YOU HIDE YOUR SHIT BEHIND YOUR PSYCHOTIC RELIGION TO PROTECT YOUR HATE SPEECH? THEN I NOW PROCLAIM I DO THIS IN MY OWN RELIGIOUS IDEOLOGY, THAT OF HUMANISM AND THE DEFENSE OF OTHER HUMAN LIFE AGAINST SCUMBAG PSYCHOTIC, CHRISTOFASCISTS LIKE YOU. SO NOW THAT I AM PROTECTED UNDER THE FIRST AMENDMENT OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM BY PROCLAIMING A RELIGION, THAT IS RECOGNIZED….MOTHER-FUCKER….BRING IT THE FUCK ON. I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF SHITSTAINS LIKE YOU. RUNNING YOUR DAMN MOUTH LIKE YOU DO.

2. YOU HAVE TRIMMED THE EDGES OF YOUR BEARD…THAT IS AN ABOMINATION THAT YOU SHOULD BE PUT TO DEATH FOR.

3. ONE OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS STATE, YOU SHALL DO NO MURDER. YOU ARE ADVOCATING MURDER. THEREFORE, YOU SHOULD BE PUT TO DEATH FOR YOUR AVOCATION OF MURDER.

4. YOUR JEEBUS SAID THAT YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOU LOVE YOUR GAWD, WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART, SOUL AND MIND AND AS YOU LOVE YOURSELF. HE MADE NO DAMN EXCEPTIONS, HE ALSO STATED THAT UNLESS YOU ARE WITHOUT SIN, THAT IS ONLY WHEN YOU CAN CAST THE FIRST STONE. WELL YOU SPEW HATRED, BIGOTRY AND EVIL, YOU SPEW MURDER, YOU SPEW BUTCHERY, QUITE THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOUR SUPPOSED LORD AND SAVIOR PROCLAIMED YOU TO DO. SO BITCH BOI…YOU THINK YOU ARE JESUS CHRIST?

Christo-Fascist Pastor of Hate Scott Lively on Trial for Crimes Against Humanity

Christo-Fascist Pastor of Hate Scott Lively is currently on trial for Crimes Against Humanity in relation to the infamous Ugandan Kill the Gays bill.
Christo-Fascist Pastor of Hate Scott Lively is currently on trial for Crimes Against Humanity in relation to the infamous Ugandan Kill the Gays bill.

In late February, when Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed the nation’s harsh new anti-gay bill into law, he claimed he measure had been “provoked by arrogant and careless western groups that are fond of coming into our schools and recruiting young children into homosexuality.” What he failed to mention is that the legislation—which makes homosexuality a crime punishable by life in prison in some cases—was itself largely due to Western interlopers, chief among them a radical American pastor named Scott Lively.

Lively, a 56-year-old Massachusetts native, specializes in stirring up anti-gay feeling around the globe. In Uganda, which he first visited in 2002, he has cultivated ties to influential politicians and religious leaders at the forefront of the nation’s anti-gay crusade. Just before the first draft of Uganda’s anti-gay bill began circulating in April 2009, Lively traveled to Kampala and gave lengthy presentations to members of Uganda’s parliament and cabinet, which laid out the argument that the nation’s president and lawmakers would later use to justify Uganda’s draconian anti-gay crackdown—namely that Western agitators were trying to unravel Uganda’s social fabric by spreading “the disease” of homosexuality to children. “They’re looking for other people to be able to prey upon,” Lively said, according to video footage. “When they see a child that’s from a broken home it’s like they have a flashing neon sign over their head.”

Lively is not the only US evangelical who has fanned the flames of anti-gay sentiment in Uganda. As they lose ground at home, where public opinion and law are rapidly shifting in favor of gay equality, religious conservatives have increasingly turned their attention to Africa. And Uganda, with its large Christian population, has been particularly fertile ground for their crusade. Journalist (and past Mother Jones contributor) Jeff Sharlet has reported at length on the Family, a politically connected US-based ministry, which promotes hard-line social policies in the East African nation.

But, according to Ugandan gay rights activists, Lively has played an unparalleled role in fostering the climate of hate that gave rise to Uganda’s anti-gay law. “The bill is essentially his creation,” says Frank Mugisha, director of Sexual Minorities Uganda, a coalition of gay rights organizations. Mugisha’s group has filed a first-of-its-kind lawsuit in US federal court, accusing Lively of international crimes against humanity on the grounds that he and his Ugandan allies allegedly conspired to deprive gay Ugandans of basic human rights.

Lively, who is currently running for governor of Massachusetts as an independent, calls the allegations “ridiculous.” “Basically, a Marxist law firm in New York City is trying to shut me up because I speak very articulately about the pro-family issues,” he says. But video obtained by Mother Jones—including footage of Lively’s 2009 presentation and a little-known follow-up meeting where influential Ugandans resolved to petition parliament for a harsh new law against homosexuality—lends credence to the allegations that Lively’s fierce message paved the way for the nation’s anti-gay crackdown.

Lively has an unusual history for a family-values crusader. A former alcoholic, he spent his late teens and 20s drifting around the country, occasionally sleeping under bridges and begging for spare change. After finding God in a Portland, Oregon, treatment center in the mid-1980s, he joined a conservative evangelical church and took a job as communications director for the Oregon Citizens Alliance, which was loosely affiliated with the then powerful Christian Coalition and was deploying radical tactics to fight abortion and the gay rights movement. In 1992, OCA introduced a ballot initiative with the first faint outlines of the legislative strategy Lively would later deploy abroad. Measure 9, as it was known, barred the state government from offering any “special rights” to gays or “promoting” homosexuality. It also required public schools to treat “homosexuality, pedophilia, sadism” as “abnormal, wrong, unnatural, and perverse.”

The backlash was fierce. Opponents likened Lively and his colleagues to Nazis and lobbed bricks wrapped in swastika flags through the windows of businesses supporting the measure. OCA’s aggressive campaign, likening gays to pedophiles, was also blamed for a steep uptick in gay hate crimes. In the end, Measure 9 was defeated by a 13-point margin. Undeterred, OCA began promoting measures barring special protections for homosexuals on the city and county levels. Lively, who bristled at the Nazi comparisons, also threw himself into studying the Third Reich and eventually grew convinced that gay men—some of whom occupied senior posts in the Nazi regime—were the driving force behind the Holocaust. “Everything that we think about when we think about Nazis actually comes from the minds and perverted ideas of homosexuals,” he told an Oregon public access television station in 1994. OCA also began deploying messages reminiscent of Nazi propaganda. One OCA-published cartoon resembled the infamous Nazi caricature showing a Jew manipulating the strings of government and economy. As Deborah Geis and ‎Steven Kruger observed in their 1997 book Approaching the Millennium, the group had merely replaced “the stooped, hooked-nose puppeteer with a fresh-faced gym boy.”

These tactics paid off: OCA managed to push through more than two dozen county and municipal ordinances. While the Oregon Legislature later rendered them unenforceable, OCA’s efforts kept the issue on the conservative agenda and showed the grassroots appeal of the group’s message. In 1994, the organization sponsored another statewide ballot initiative similar to Measure 9. It was defeated, too, but only by a 3-point margin.

After his bare-knuckled legislative battles in Oregon, Lively retreated to California, where he earned a law degree and a Ph.D. in theology. He also became a prolific author. In 1995, he coauthored what would become his signature book, The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party. It argued that gay elements in the Nazi regime tried to wipe out the Jews because their religion condemned homosexuality. And it claimed that gays intentionally spread immorality and corruption so others were “less likely to oppose homosexuality on moral grounds.” Pornography, according to this theory, is a “tool of ‘gay’ social engineering.” The rising rates of divorce, substance abuse, disease, and violent crime, are all a “direct consequence of embracing the ‘gay’ ethic.” In subsequent books, Lively laid out detailed tactics for battling this menace—including stressing the supposed danger homosexuality poses to young people. “Public sympathy for ‘gays’ as victims is not grounded in logic, but in emotion,” he wrote. “An effective strategy is to emphasize the issue of homosexual recruitment of children…”

Lively’s ideas have proven too radical for the mainstream family values movement, but they’ve gotten some traction on the far right. Bryan Fischer, director of issues analysis for the influential American Family Association, regularly parrots his arguments linking gays to Nazis. (“Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler,” he opined in a 2010 post on the organization’s website, “and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews.”) Lively’s theories have also gained currency in foreign countries, including former Soviet republics, where he has helped advance anti-gay legislation. But nowhere has his influence been more keenly felt than in Uganda. During his first visit there in 2002, he spoke at an anti-pornography conference and warned participants that Western cultural Marxists, backed by liberals (such as George Soros), were trying to erode Uganda’s independence by attacking family values—a message that played on lingering colonial-era resentments. One of their core tactics, Lively argued, was deploying homosexuals to infiltrate Ugandan society. “The cultural Marxists go into these countries, they buy media and they set up these street activist organizations to recruit,” Lively tells me. “I said, ‘Okay, this is what’s going on here. The way to respond to that is to focus on affirming family values—and discouraging the alternatives.'” Lively, who was used to being heckled, was stunned by the positive reception he received at the gathering.

“Public sympathy for ‘gays’ as victims is not grounded in logic, but in emotion,” Lively wrote. “An effective strategy is to emphasize the issue of homosexual recruitment of children…”

Later the same year, an influential Ugandan Assemblies of God pastor named Stephen Langa invited Lively and his wife, Anne, back to Kampala for a barnstorming tour. Lively met with lawmakers, lectured at universities, and gave a number of media interviews. He and Langa also hosted an all-day conference with local pastors. The event was closed to the media and the public, but Lively later recalled that the pastors who attended were “very grateful” for his insights “about the way in which America was brought low by homosexual activism.”

Following the trip, Lively kept in contact with Langa, whom he calls his “ministry partner,” and another influential Ugandan pastor named Martin Ssempa. Both men would ultimately be at the vanguard of Uganda’s anti-gay crackdown.

In early March 2009, Lively returned to Uganda at Langa’s invitation. Uganda’s High Court had recently found that the government overstepped its authority by detaining two gay activists simply because they were gay. In response, a Langa-run group called the Family Life Network planned a three-day conference to expose what he called the “hidden and dark” gay agenda. On the last day, Lively gave a marathon five-hour presentation, which was broadcast on Ugandan television. He claimed that homosexuals were aggressively recruiting Uganda’s children and argued that human rights protections shouldn’t be extended to these “predatory” figures.

Lively also told attendees—among them Ugandan cabinet members—that the gay movement was an “evil institution” that sought to “defeat the marriage-based society” and crush anyone who stood up to its nefarious agenda. At one point, he scrawled “Causes and Types of Homosexual Dysfunction” across the top of a white board and, beneath this, drew a continuum with what he claimed were the various types of gay men. On one extreme sat the transsexuals and transvestites; on the other were what Lively called the “super machos” and “monsters.” “The Nazis were super machos,” he said. “You also see them in prisons…brutish, brutish, animalistic, men that want to hurt other people…men having sex with boys and other men, usually in some sort of aggressive way.”

Moving on to “the monsters,” Lively continued, “They are so far from normalcy that they’re killers. They’re serial killers, mass murderers. They’re sociopaths. There’s no mercy at all, there’s no nurturing, no caring about anybody else…This is the kind of person it takes to run a gas chamber. ” He added that the genocide in neighboring Rwanda “probably involved these guys.”

Lively also likened homosexuality to a disease, and suggested that if Uganda didn’t “actively discourage” same-sex relations, the nation’s children might soon be throwing orgies and performing oral sex on school buses. “That’s what happens when the immune system becomes overwhelmed. The body begins to suffer, disintegrate,” he said. “We need public policy that discourages homosexuality.”

According to Kapya Kaoma, an Anglican priest from Zambia who attended the conference as part of an investigation for the liberal think tank Political Research Associates, Lively’s remarks landed like a bombshell. “These people had never heard of anything called the gay agenda,” he recalls. “But Lively told them that these predators were coming for their children. As Africans hearing it for the first time, they believed it was true—and they were burning with rage.”

During his Ugandan trip, Lively also addressed more than 50 members of parliament. The following week, Langa’s Family Life Network convened a follow-up seminar. As attendees filtered into the meeting room, they passed a table stacked with Lively’s writings and DVDs of his conference speech. The purpose of the gathering, the moderator explained, was to review the lessons from the conference and “come up with a way forward.” He asked attendees to share their recollections from the previous week’s event. A stocky young man in a purple Oxford stood up. “The man of God told us about the origin of all this,” he recalled, according to video footage provided by Political Research Associates. “He said there is a movement that is behind the promotion of homosexuality, and it’s called ‘gay movement.’ He told us it is more serious than we have ever thought. For me, I have never heard of that. But then I got to know that there is a force behind homosexuality that we need to attack also with force.” This was followed by a flurry of incendiary claims, many of them inspired by Lively’s speech.

By the time Langa took the stage, about an hour into the proceedings, the crowd was in a frenzy. The Ugandan pastor held up a copy of The Pink Swastika, and rehashed Lively’s inflammatory theories. In a crude variation on Lively’s take on the history of the gay movement, he claimed the first gay-rights organization in the United States was founded by German-American soldier named Henry Gerber, who had been stationed in pre-Nazi Germany and later became a child molester. (In reality, there is no evidence that Gerber had inappropriate relations with children).

Langa’s speech only fed the public’s rage, and audience members rose to their feet to demand government action. Eventually, the director of research for Uganda’s parliament, Charles Tuhaise, took the floor. He argued that the problem was the nation’s colonial-era anti-homosexuality laws, which made it difficult to punish gay activists. “It does not define its terms. It is totally vague and ineffective,” he explained. Tuhaise opined that parliament needed to “draft a new law that comprehensively deals with this issue—the gay agenda as we have seen it.”

Shortly after the meeting, attendees marched down to parliament and petitioned lawmakers to stiffen punishment for homosexuality. By late April 2009, the first draft of Uganda’s anti-gay bill, authored partly by longtime Lively associate Martin Ssempa, was circulating. Its preamble echoed Lively’s arguments about the threats gays supposedly pose to society. (“Research indicates that homosexuality has a variety of negative consequences including higher incidences of violence, sexually transmitted diseases, and use of drugs…”) The bill made homosexuality punishable by life in prison, and it created a new category of offense, “aggravated homosexuality,” for repeat offenses or cases when one partner is underage or HIV positive. This was punishable by death.

Lively claims that he never called for such harsh punishments. When Ssempa consulted him on an early draft of the legislation, he says he suggested softening the penalties and adding a provision to encourage “rehabilitation.” But by this time, the animosity he helped plant had apparently taken on a life of its own. According to correspondence that Lively reprinted on his website, the Ugandan parliament rebuffed his suggestions, based largely on his own arguments about the dangers of homosexuality. “I admire the courage of my friend Dr. Lively, because he has stood up to homosexual intimidation for so long as a lone voice,” Tuhaise, the Ugandan parliament’s research director, wrote in a letter to Ssempa. But, he argued, Uganda needed the harshest possible deterrents to prevent Western gay activists from indoctrinating children and dominating the “whole culture.”

While Uganda’s parliament ultimately stripped out the death penalty, it also added harsh new provisions. Under the version of the bill that would eventually be signed into law, even touching someone of the same sex with romantic intent was a crime punishable by life in prison in certain cases. Renting a room to a homosexual or “aiding and abetting” him in any form could land a person in prison for seven years. Some US religious conservatives, including Lou Engle of The Call, initially appeared to laud the legislation. But most reversed course and came out against it after the deafening international outcry. Lively continued to voice tepid support. When asked by a reporter in 2010 if he would support the bill minus the death penalty, he replied: “I would not have written the bill this way. But what it comes down to is a question of lesser of two evils…I think the lesser of two evils is for the bill to go through.”

As the bill inched toward passage, the situation for gay Ugandans deteriorated. Newspapers printed the names, addresses, and photos of suspected homosexuals, triggering a wave of vigilante violence. In January 2011, Sexual Minorities Uganda’s founder David Kato was beaten to death with a hammer, after his picture was splashed across the front of a Kampala tabloid, under the headline “Hang Them.” The group issued a statement blaming the murder on “hatred planted in Uganda by U.S. evangelicals in 2009.” Lively has dismissed these allegations and offered his own theory about the motive behind the murder, namely that Kato “was killed by a ‘gay’ lover, as was the case with another homosexual activist…Carlos Castro was castrated with a corkscrew by his boyfriend and bled to death in his hotel room.”

A similar pattern has played out in other countries where Lively has promoted anti-gay legislation. In 2006, he teamed up with a politically connected Latvian pastor, Alexey Ledyaev, to form an international anti-gay organization called Watchmen on the Walls, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has dubbed a hate group. (For more on Watchmen, see Box Turtle Bulletin). That summer, Lively traveled to Latvia, where he lectured at universities, met with lawmakers, and preached at Ledyaev’s New Generation church. As in Uganda, Lively claimed that Western activists—in this case backed by the European Union—were trying to infiltrate Latvian society and spread homosexuality, especially to children. In one case, he went as far as claiming that the gay rights movement was actually seeking the right “for adult men to have sex with boys.”

During his visit, Latvia’s First Party, which has deep ties to Ladyaev’s church, introduced legislation barring “homosexual propaganda.” (The bill initially failed, but it was recently reintroduced). That same summer, Latvia’s lone gay rights group, Mozaika, held the nation’s second gay-pride gathering. Hundreds of protestors—many of them wearing T-shirts from a New Generation spin-off called “No Pride”—turned out to heckle them and pelt them with eggs and feces.

After Latvia, Lively embarked on a 50-city tour of Russia and former Soviet republics, sponsored by Ledyaev’s church, which had roughly 200 congregations and a regional TV channel. As Lively wound his way from the Baltics to Siberia, he pressed officials to outlaw the “public advocacy of homosexuality” and agitated against anti-discrimination laws.

Eight of the nine countries he visited eventually weighed nationwide bans on “homosexual propaganda,” and five—including Russia—either have bills pending or have passed them into law. Lively takes partial credit for this development and calls Russia’s controversial gay propaganda ban his “proudest accomplishment.” Some mainstream family values organizations active in the region accuse Lively of exaggerating his clout. “The influence of Scott Lively in the Russian debate is a creation of his own imagination,” Allan Carlson, president of the World Congress of Families, barked when an activist asked him about Lively during a Capitol Hill press conference last fall. (For more on the World Congress of Families, see “How US Evangelicals Helped Create Russia’s Anti-Gay Movement.”)

But activists in several Eastern European countries that Lively visited say his influence has been considerable. “To this day, Latvian politicians are using his arguments about the secret gay agenda to homosexualize society and steal the children,” says Mozaika’s executive director, Kaspars Zalitis. “Most Latvians condemn homosexuality. We believe Lively and Ledyaev are one of the main reasons for this. Every gay person in the country knows Ledyaev’s rhetoric, which he borrowed from his American friend.”

As his inflammatory ideas bear fruit abroad, Lively has renewed his attention to the home front, where he’s campaigning for governor of Massachusetts. He admits that it would “take a miracle from God” to land him in the governor’s mansion. “My purpose really is just to have a platform to articulate my views so people can hear them,” he explains. Lively has also partnered with another radical anti-gay crusader, Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, to create a new group called the Coalition for Family Values, which will work with organizations around the globe to push a hard-line anti-gay agenda. So far, Lively says, more than 75 organizations have signed on, including a few US heavyweights, such as the American Family Association.

At a press conference announcing the group’s formation late last month, Lively praised Russia for “providing much-needed leadership in restoring family values.” When a young gay Russian man, who wore as “Lively is Deadly” button, stood up to protest, Lively drowned him out. “Every time the pro-family people come forward to speak the truth from our perspective, we are interrupted by homo fascists,” he seethed, before summoning security to drag the protestor away.

The following week, Uganda’s president signed the nation’s draconian anti-gay bill into law, and the popular Ugandan tabloid Red Pepper printed names, photographs, and home addresses of 200 alleged homosexuals, touching off a new wave of anti-gay vigilantism. Ugandan gay activists say attacks and harassment​ are becoming commonplace, with religious leaders in the Kampala suburbs calling for gays to be burned and beaten over public address systems. But Lively remains unrepentant. “The gay movement has really brought this on themselves,” he told NPR during a recent interview. “You know, white male homosexuals from the United States and Europe going into these African countries because the age of consent laws are low and able to take these, you know, young, teenage boys and turn them into rent boys for the price of a bicycle…When you’re taking these boys and messing with them in a culture like Uganda…they’re just asking for trouble.”

Christo-Fascist Pastor of Hate Scott Lively’s trial on Crimes Against Humanity

Sexual Minorities Uganda v. Scott Lively

SMUG v. Lively is a federal lawsuit on behalf of a non-profit umbrella organization for LGBTI advocacy groups in Uganda against Scott Lively, a U.S.-based anti-gay extremist, for his role in the persecution of LGBTI people in Uganda, in particular his active participation in the conspiracy to strip away their fundamental rights. The case is part of CCR’s cutting edge international human rights work and groundbreaking efforts to protect and expand rights under the area of law related to the Alien Tort Statute (ATS) and continues CCR’s historic early work defending LGBTI rights.

CCR works closely with our allies at SMUG to support their work and hold U.S.-based anti-gay activists like Lively accountable.

This is the first ATS case seeking accountability for persecution on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity as a crime against humanity. The United States Supreme Court has affirmed the use of the ATS as a remedy for serious violations of international law that are widely accepted and clearly defined. Persecution is defined in international law as the “intentional and severe deprivation of fundamental rights contrary to international law by reason of the identity of the group or collectivity.” Lively – a U.S.-based attorney, author, and self-described world-leading expert on the “gay movement” – has traveled to Uganda and other countries, including Russia, and played a key role in the effort to strip LGBTI people of fundamental rights, including the rights to free expression, association, and assembly.

Case Timeline

March 14, 2012: SMUG files case against Scott Lively. Filed in the Springfield Division of the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts, the complaint alleges that Lively’s involvement in anti-gay efforts in Uganda, including his active participation in the conspiracy to strip away fundamental rights from LGBTI persons, constitutes persecution. This is the first known Alien Tort Statute (ATS) suit seeking accountability for persecution on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

May 2012: Parties file briefs on Lively’s motion to stay case pending SCOTUS decision in Kiobel. Represented by Liberty Counsel, Lively files a motion to stay the case pending the outcome of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Shell, a case also brought under the ATS. SMUG files its opposition to the motion, and the court subsequently denies Lively’s motion to stay the case on June 1, 2012, ordering him to answer or otherwise respond to the complaint.
January 7, 2013: Court hears arguments on Lively’s motion to dismiss. Supporters and allies pack the court for oral argument on Lively’s motion to dismiss the case. Lively’s attorneys argue that his activity in Uganda is protected under the First Amendment. Pamela Spees of CCR argues that Lively’s conduct went well beyond the exercise of his First Amendment rights when he began to work to criminalize organizations like SMUG and to remove fundamental civil rights from LGBTI people, including their right to free speech and assembly.

A delegation of Ugandan LGBTI activists attends the hearing alongside Stop the Hate and Homophobia Coalition of Western Massachusetts, who organize a rally in front of the courthouse.

April 2013: Lively files notice of supplemental authority in support of his motion to dismiss; in turn, SMUG files response to defendant’s notice regarding Kiobel.

DEFENDANT’S NOTICE OF SUPPLEMENTAL AUTHORITY REQUIRING DISMISSAL OF PLAINTIFF’S FEDERAL LAW CLAIMS

PLAINTIFF’S RESPONSE TO DEFENDANT’S “ NOTICE OF SUPPLEMENTAL AUTHORITY REQUIRING DISMISSAL OF PLAINTIFF’S FEDERAL LAW CLAIMS”

August 14, 2013: Court denies Lively’s motion to dismiss. The court issues a memorandum and order denying the defendant’s motion to dismiss and referring the case for pre-trial scheduling. In a historic decision, the judge rules that persecution on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity is a crime against humanity and that the fundamental human rights of LGBTI people are protected under international law.

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER REGARDING DEFENDANT’S MOTIONS TO DISMISS

Fall 2013: Lively files series of motions seeking leave to file appeal of order denying his motion to dismiss. On September 6, 2013, Lively’s attorneys move to have the District Court certify an interlocutory appeal of its order on the motion to dismiss. The District Court denies his motion for certification, noting that an interim appeal would be improper given the need for discovery and the lack of a substantial question of law that would justify review before the appellate court. Lively files another motion, asking the District Court to reconsider its order denying certification for an interlocutory appeal. The judge promptly denies Lively’s motion for reconsideration, ruling in favor of SMUG. The parties subsequently appear before the District Court for a scheduling conference, on November 6, 2013, to set the timeline for the pre-trial phase of the case.

DEFENDANT SCOTT LIVELY’S ANSWER AND DEFENSES TO PLAINTIFF’S FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT

December 5, 2013: Lively files petition for writ of mandamus. On December 5, 2013, Lively files a petition requesting that the First Circuit Court of Appeals issue a writ of mandamus, a type of relief granted only in extraordinary circumstances, directing the District Court to vacate its order denying Lively’s motion to dismiss. The next day, his legal team also file a motion with the District Court to stay the case, pending the First Circuit’s review of the writ petition. The District Court denies the defendant’s motion for a stay, allowing the discovery phase to proceed. Almost a year later, on December 4, 2014, the First Circuit issues a judgment denying Lively’s petition for a writ.

April 9, 2015: Sexual Minorities Uganda files motion asking court to subpoena Martin Ssempa.

UPDATE ON CASE:

June 16, 2015: Lawyers in the federal “crimes against humanity” lawsuit against anti-homosexuality pastor Scott Lively continue to wrangle over which information should be made public in the case, and how public that information should be.

Attorney Roger Gannam on Tuesday argued that lawyers for the plaintiffs were being so surreptitious in turning over documents – already subject to an “attorney’s eyes only” restriction – that it was hindering Lively’s ability to wage an effective defense.

“Scott Lively has no desire for the information except for this lawsuit,” Gannam argued to U.S. Magistrate Judge Katherine Robertson. “SMUG has not proved that it’s reliable in deciding what Scott Lively should see and shouldn’t see.”

In particular, the lawyer cited an email relating to a SMUG fund-raiser geared toward paying fees in the Lively case, which he said was so heavily redacted even the subject line was blacked out. Gannam also referred to images the plaintiffs have withheld of participants at the 2009 workshop in Uganda, which he argued Lively couldn’t confirm were there if he can’t see their faces.

Gannam also suggested the plaintiffs’ representation of the significance of the 2009 workshop in Uganda was overstated.

“It has been suggested that the number of (anti-gay) participants at this conference that captivated an entire country was seven, and as many as 30 were SMUG agents who attended just to figure out what was going on,” Gannam argued.

However the plaintiffs have argued that Lively’s evangelism served to stir up an already politically vulnerable country with conservative views on sexuality. SMUG argues the workshops prompted openly gay Ugandans to go into hiding lest they risk being murdered or jailed. The penalty for homosexual acts in Uganda is life imprisonment.

Jeena Shaw, a lawyer for the plaintiff’s on Tuesday argued that certain documents could not be turned over to Lively’s defense team because he may use them to imperil SMUG’s security measures and its allies who have not yet been “outed.”

“He could learn where members choose to meet, how they choose to communicate, – how they travel or hide (in and out of the country),” Shaw told Robertson. “Mr. Lively could further refine (anti-gay) legislation or other modes of attack,” Shaw said.

Gannam said Lively has no such plans and has complied with the protective order already in place in the case.

Lawyers also sparred about how and whether SMUG board member Sam Ganafa should be compelled to appear for a deposition in the case.

The plaintiff’s argue that Ganafa only has tangential knowledge of the events in the case, and has already been subjected to public harassment in Uganda.

Ganafa was privy only to two events of the “outing” of gays in that country, first in 2013 by the Ugandan tabloid “Red Pepper,” which ran a headline that read: “BUSTED -HOW GAYS OPERATE IN UGANDA,” according to court filings. The article caused a sister agency called “Spectrum” to pack up and move its offices out of fear for its staff’s safety.

A second article ran the day after the “Anti-Homosexuality Act” was passed in Uganda on Feb. 25, 2014 with a headline that read: “EXPOSED! Uganda’s 200 Top Homos Named,” court records state. The second article featured a front page photo of Ganafa, according to the plaintiffs.

HOPEFULLY CHRISTO-FASCIST PASTOR OF HATE SCOTT LIVELY WILL GET WHAT IS COMING TO HIM.

Christo-Fascist Psychotic Matt McLaughlin and his Sodomite Suppression Act ballot initiative

ChristoFascist Matt McLaughlinChristo-Fascist Psychotic Matt McLaughlin and his Sodomite Suppression Act ballot initiative

Matthew Gregory McLaughlin, an Orange County attorney, filed the so-called Sodomite Suppression Act ballot initiative This is a copy of his disgusting act.

SODOMITE SUPPRESSION ACT Penal Code section 39

a) The abominable crime against nature known as buggery, called also sodomy, is a monstrous evil that Almighty God, giver of freedom and liberty, commands us to suppress on pain of our utter destruction even as he overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.

b) Seeing that it is better that offenders should die rather than that all of us should be killed by God’s just wrath against us for the folly of tolerating-wickedness in our midst, the People of California wisely command, in the fear of God, that any person who willingly touches another person of the same gender for purposes of sexual gratification be put to death by bullets to the head or by any other convenient method.

c) No person shall distribute, perform, or transmit sodomistic propaganda directly or indirectly by any means to any person under the age of majority. Sodomistic propaganda is defined as anything aimed at creating an interest in or an acceptance of human sexual relations other than between a man and a woman.

f) The state has an affirmative duty to defend and enforce this law as written, and every member of the public has standing to seek its enforcement and obtain reimbursement for all costs and attorney’s fees in so doing, and further, should the state persist in inaction over 1 year after due notice, the general public is empowered and deputized to execute all the provisions hereunder extra-judicially, immune from any charge and indemnified by the state against any and all liability.

g) This law shall be known as 11The Sodomite Suppression Act” and be numbered as section 39 in Title 3 of the Penal Code, pertaining to offences against the sovereignty of the state. The text shall be prominently posted in every public school classroom. All laws in conflict with this law are to that extent invalid.



CHRISTO-FASCISTS LIKE MATTHEW GREGORY MCLAUGHLIN SHOULD, AS THE BUYBULL COMMANDS, HAVE DONE UNTO HIM AS HE WISHES TO DO UNTO OTHERS.

I hear Christo-Fascists like his sorry ass all the time, screaming how they are oh so persecuted for their religious based, cherry-picking buybull verse, bigoted, scumbag hypocrites they are when we get into their faces. It seems that many of these ChristoFascists can spew all kinds of murderous evil from their well used outhouse pie-holes and damn anyone who dares stands up to them. Douchebags like McLaughlin can scream, foaming at the mouth, that because they are Christians, they should have the right to brutally murder anyone they wish, when they cherry-pick buybul verses. Far too many ChristoFascists like McLaughlin are out there and they think they have a special privilege they can hide behind, the First Amendment, to get away with their ideology of murdering others, especially gays, lesbians and anyone who dares to stand up and defend them and their rights.

If I were to stand on the street corner, demanding that we have a right to walk up to someone we do not like and blow their heads off, or put them into Nazi concentration camps, or lynch or stone them, or murder them in other ways, I would be arrested for the very least on charges of criminal threatening. But again, scumbags like McLaughlin seems to be able to get away with their shit because hey….he proclaims he is a Christian.

Yet, they forget the biggest commandment their Lord and Savior they proclaim to follow. That they should love their neighbor, like their God, with all of their hearts, souls and minds and like they love themselves. Their Jesus also said that many shall call themselves by his name, but their hearts and minds are far from his teachings. The bible also states, in the Ten Commandments, that thou shall do no murder, but it seems that Matthew Gregory McLaughlin, passed by many of those verses

Christo-Fascist buybull thumpers like McLaughlin also seem to forget all the other abominations listed in their buybulls that would in fact, condemn them to death. Such things as wearing clothes of mixed fabrics, or eating the meat of a pig, or fish from the sea or lakes without scales or fins, or trimming the edges of their beards, and about 304 more abominations listed. Of course that would mean they would have to see a lot of their Christian buddies dragged out of their homes and places of business and executed.

ChristoFascists like Matthew Gregory McLaughlin and others like him? Who spew such evil from their outhouse pie-holes? Should have done exactly to them, what they want to do unto others. Of course they would claim I am now persecuting them by saying this….but that would just be typical of their disgusting hypocrisy, for if they feel they have a right, under their Christian religion, to demand that gays and lesbians should have their heads blown off on a street corner, and that those who support and defend their rights should be put into prison and face a million dollar fine and not have the right to be a U.S. citizen because they do support and defend the rights of gays and lesbians…..then McLaughlin and other scum Christo-Fascists like him, would be the persecutors crying their eyes out about how they are oh so persecuted….but I say it is truly time…..to persecute the persecutors and give them a dose of their own medicine.

KIM DAVIS, WHAT CAN YOU REALLY SAY ABOUT THIS CHRISTO-FASCIST, CHERRY-PICKING BUYBULL THUMPER, ADULTERER AND OVERALL HYPOCRITE CHRISTIANIST? WHY A WHOLE HELL OF A LOT REALLY.

THE CASE OF KIM DAVIS

You just gotta love this freak Christo-Fascist. She claims she is being persecuted because as the County Clerk for Rowan County, Kentucky, for being put into jail for refusing to sign marriage licenses for gay and lesbian couples. She was sentenced to six days in the Carter County Detention Center, by Judge David L. Bunning, of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, for contempt of court.

The U.S. Supreme Court, ruled on June 26, 2015, in the case of Obergfell vs Hodges 576 U.S. (2015), stating that the fundamental right of same sex couples to marry is protected under the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear, ordered all county clerks to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, but Davis contacted Beshear, asking for an executive order to protect clerks who have moral objections against personally issuing such marriage licenses,as Kentucky law requires county clerks to issue marriage licenses in their name. She began turning away gay couples from her county office who were there seeking marriage licenses, then began denying marriage licenses to all couples, gay or straight, rather than issue them to same-sex couples.

On July 1, 2015, four couples who were denied a marriage license—two same-sex couples and two opposite-sex couples filed a lawsuit against Kim Davis, represented by the ACLU. The case was heard before Federal District Judge Bunning. Davis, who tearfully argued that issuing licenses under her name violates her beliefs, citing her religious rights under the First Amendment: “It wasn’t just a spur-of-the-moment decision,” she said. “It was thought out, and I sought God on it.”. Davis had already decided against resigning from her post, as doing so, she said, would only leave the matter to her deputies: “If I resign, I solve nothing. It helps nobody.”. Governor Beshear stated he would not call a special session of the General Assembly to address Davis’ concerns, while other state legislators believed that such a session could accommodate Davis with possible new legislation. Davis’ attorneys from the Liberty Council, stated that the plaintiffs were free to drive to other counties to obtain their same-sex marriage licenses, with one adding, “This case is not about these plaintiffs’ desires to get married, the case is about [their] desire to force Kim Davis to approve and authorize their marriage in violation of her constitutionally protected religious beliefs.”. Davis and her attorneys then sued Governor Beshear for ordering her to violate her religious beliefs instead of trying to accommodate them and argued that Beshear – not Davis – should be held accountable for any legal damages from the ACLU lawsuit.

The following month, in August, Judge Bunning issued a stay temporarily barring Davis from “applying her ‘no marriage licenses’ policy to future marriage license requests”. Before the stay expired, the U.S.Court of Appeals for the Sixth District, refused to extend that ruling for an appeal. “It cannot be defensibly argued that the holder of the Rowan County Clerk’s office … may decline to act in conformity with the United States Constitution as interpreted by a dispositive holding of the United States Supreme Court,” the unanimous three-judge panel wrote in their refusal. “There is thus little or no likelihood that the clerk in her official capacity will prevail on appeal,” the panel further said.  Liberty Counsel and Davis filed an emergency application to appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court. In a one-line order, the Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal, preventing Davis from legally continuing to deny marriage licenses to couples. In response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to grant her stay request, Davis stated: “I never imagined a day like this would come, where I would be asked to violate a central teaching of Scripture and of Jesus Himself regarding marriage. To issue a marriage license which conflicts with God’s definition of marriage, with my name affixed to the certificate, would violate my conscience.”. Davis continued to defy Bunning’s court order after the Supreme Court upheld it. When several couples sought to obtain marriage licenses, Davis turned them away, saying she was acting “under God’s authority”. Some in the media questioned whether Davis, having been married four times, was acting hypocritically in the “application of her beliefs”

Bunning ordered Davis and her six deputy clerks to appear before him on September 3 in Ashland, after the two gay couples and two opposite-sex couples sought to have her held in contempt of court.  The four couples and the ACLU asked the court to fine Davis. Bunning ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and held Davis in contempt, but remanded her to custody after the hearing. The judge said she would remain in jail until she complied with the court’s order to issue marriage licenses. Bunning reportedly said that fines were not an option “because outsiders would pay them for her”. Of the six deputy clerks who report to Davis, only her son Nathan refused to comply with the court’s order to start issuing marriage licenses. After the hearing, she was transported by the U.S. Marshals to the Carter County Detention Center in Grayson. Through her attorneys from Liberty Counsel, Davis filed an appeal from the order holding her in contempt of court, asking that she be immediately released from jail and her name removed from marriage licenses, allowing her deputies to issue them. Separately, Davis asked Governor Beshear to free her. The governor’s office said that the conflict was a “matter between her and the courts” and added that the governor had no power to release her. Rowan County Democratic Judge-Executive Walter Blevins stated that he did not believe he would need to appoint a replacement for Davis, and that he believes “the General Assembly will pass something where marriage licenses don’t have anyone’s name on them. The Attorney General of Kentucky, is saying the same thing.

Five days later on September 8, Bunning ordered Davis released from jail. The order stated:
Defendant Davis shall be released from the custody of the U.S. Marshal forthwith. Defendant Davis shall not interfere in any way, directly or indirectly, with the efforts of her deputy clerks to issue marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples. If Defendant Davis should interfere in any way with their issuance, that will be considered a violation of this Order and appropriate sanctions will be considered.

Bunning’s order also stated that Davis’ deputy clerks must comply with his earlier order to issue marriage licenses and to submit status reports confirming their compliance to him every fourteen days. The deputy clerks released statements pledging to continue issuing licenses after Davis’ release and to ignore any order from her to do otherwise, complying with the federal judge’s order. Licenses issued since Davis’ refusal state that they are authorized by “the office of the Rowan County Clerk” but no longer bear her name.  Davis supporters who gathered at the Rowan County Courthouse said that her deputies were unlawfully issuing licenses and should resign or be fired.

Davis returned to work a week later, on September 14, 2015, and said she would not interfere with any deputy clerk who issues marriage licenses, but she said she would not personally issue or authorize any of the forms.The same day, a same sex couple successfully walked out of the Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk’s office with a marriage license. After three trips to Davis’ office by deputy clerk Brian Mason,the license the couple received said “pursuant to federal court order #15-CV-44 DLB” on it and listed the city of Morehead, the county seat, rather than listing Davis’ name and Rowan County. A member of the couple said: “My license is valid, and it’s valid because of the court order that’s in effect … It doesn’t have to have her signature.

Under Kentucky law, a commonwealth attorney, has the power to indict various local officials (including judges-executives, justices of the peace, sheriffs, coroners, surveyors, jailers, county attorneys and constables) for “malfeasance in office or willful neglect in the discharge of official duties” (an offense punishable by removal from office and a fine of up to $1,000), “but for some reason lost to history, the statute doesn’t include county clerks.” Since Davis’ denial of issuing marriage licenses came into the public eye, the question has been posed as to why Davis has not been fired for failure to perform her assigned duties. As an elected official, however, Davis cannot be fired. In order for Davis to be removed from the office of county clerk, impeachment proceedings must be initiated by the Kentucky House of Representatives, and charges for impeachment brought to the Kentucky Senate.

After being denied a license four times, one couple asked the Rowan County Attorney’s Office to investigate Davis for official misconduct, a misdemeanor under Kentucky law.

Rowan County Attorney Cecil Watkins cited a conflict of interest precluding him from making a decision to charge or not to charge in the case (his office is currently defending two suits filed against the county). Because of this, Watkins referred the complaint of official misconduct to the Kentucky Attorney General’s office, led by Attorney General Jack Conway, for them to decide whether to file charges against Davis.

The Kentucky Attorney General has the power to have an assistant attorney general investigate whether Davis violated the official misconduct statute when her office refused to issue a license to the same-sex couple, or to have a county attorney or commonwealth’s attorney from another jurisdiction conduct such an investigation. The Kentucky Attorney General’s office then conducted a review, and Conway issued a statement reading: “I understand that passions are high on both sides of this issue, but we are a nation of laws, and no one can defy an order from a federal judge.”.

On September 9, 2015, Conway issued a one-sentence statement saying that he would not appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Davis: “Judge Bunning and the federal court have control of this matter, and therefore a special state prosecutor is not necessary at this time.” Conway has noted that the statute of limitations on charging Davis does not expire for a year.

THE HYPOCRISY OF KIM DAVIS

Davis has been married four times to three different men.The first three marriages ended in divorce in 1994, 2006, and 2008. She is the mother of twins, who were born five months after her divorce from her first husband. Her third husband is the biological father of the twins, who were adopted by her second husband, Joe Davis, who is also her fourth and current husband; he supports her stance against same-sex marriage.  One of Davis’ twin sons, Nathan, works in her office as a deputy clerk and has taken the same position of denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Kim Davis states she is a Christian, yet she is not. She is a Christianist, who is using a religious doctrine to justify her bigotry and hatred against gays and lesbians. Then she cries about herself being persecuted by those who stand up to her and her Christianist based bigotry. Kim Davis is basically a cherry-picking buybull thumper. She has gained notoriety and fame for herself by being the ChristoFascist bigot that she is. Her bible though, is clear on many points, and shows to us all that she is a hypocrite and a true cherry-picking buybull thumper, as are all those who come to her defense and rescue or support her in any way.

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT KIM DAVIS AND OTHERS LIKE HER.

There are many verses in the bible that proclaims Kim Davis, not only a hypocrite, but an adulteress, and one, who if we abided by that disgusting, degenerate, evil book, should be dragged to her fathers house and stoned to death by the men of the city. If Kim Davis is going to cherry-pick buybull verses to be a psychotic religious bigot, then the whole bible should be applied to herself and all those who stand up and defends her, and her hypocrisy.

BIBLE VERSES AGAINST ADULTERY AND DIVORCE

  1. In Luke 16:18 Jesus says:
    Every one who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery.

Mark 10:2-12: 2 And Pharisees came up and in order to test him asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” 3 He answered them, “What did Moses command you?” 4 They said, “Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to put her away.” 5 But Jesus said to them, “For your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment. 6 But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’ 7 ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh. 9 What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.” 10 And in the house the disciples asked him again about this matter. 11 And he said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her; 12 and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”

The bible also states in Leviticus and Deuteronomy what should be done to not only adulterers like Kim Davis, but because she was definitely not a virgin on her second, third or fourth wedding night, this also calls for the same punishment as adulterers.

Leviticus 20:10:If there is a man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, one who commits adultery with his friend’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. 

Deuteronomy 22:20,21:20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: 21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

Kim Davis, being divorced three times and re-married four times, is in fact, according to her own bible’s standards an adulteress and a whore. Even though she can proclaim that since she became a “Christian” that all her sins were forgiven her, yet, each night, she sleeps with a man who was not her first husband and that makes her an adulteress each and every time she does so. She also again, was NOT a virgin on her subsequent three wedding nights. So according to her own religion and her own bible, her own God and Jesus Christ, she is a harlot, a whore, an adulteress, who should in fact, be stoned to death.

NOTHING SAYS HYPOCRISY AS CHRISTO-FASCIST, CHERRY-PICKING BUYBULL THUMPER LIKE KIM DAVIS.

Founding Father Thomas Paine and his words AGAINST Christianity

Founding Father Thomas Paine
Founding Father Thomas Paine

“These are the times that try men’s souls.” This simple quotation from Founding Father Thomas Paine’s The American Crisis not only describes the beginnings of the American Revolution, but also the life of Paine himself. Throughout most of his life, his writings inspired passion, but also brought him great criticism. He communicated the ideas of the Revolution to common farmers as easily as to intellectuals, creating prose that stirred the hearts of the fledgling United States. He had a grand vision for society: he was staunchly anti-slavery, and he was one of the first to advocate a world peace organization and social security for the poor and elderly. But his radical views on religion would destroy his success, and by the end of his life, only a handful of people attended his funeral.

On January 29, 1737, Thomas Paine was born in Thetford, England. His father, a corseter, had grand visions for his son, but by the age of 12, Thomas had failed out of school. The young Paine began apprenticing for his father, but again, he failed. So, now age 19, Paine went to sea. This adventure didn’t last too long, and by 1768 he found himself as an excise (tax) officer in England. Thomas didn’t exactly excel at the role, getting discharged from his post twice in four years, but as an inkling of what was to come, he published The Case of the Officers of Excise (1772), arguing for a pay raise for officers. In 1774, by happenstance, he met Benjamin Franklin in London, who helped him emigrate to Philadelphia.

His career turned to journalism while in Philadelphia, and suddenly, Thomas Paine became very important. In 1776, he published Common Sense, a strong defense of American Independence from England. He traveled with the Continental Army and wasn’t a success as a soldier, but he produced The American Crisis (1776-83), which helped inspire the Army. This pamphlet was so popular that as a percentage of the population, it was read by or read to more people than today watch the Super Bowl.

But, instead of continuing to help the Revolutionary cause, he returned to Europe and pursued other ventures, including working on a smokeless candle and an iron bridge. In 1791-92, he wrote The Rights of Man in response to criticism of the French Revolution. This work caused Paine to be labeled an outlaw in England for his anti-monarchist views. He would have been arrested, but he fled for France to join the National Convention.

By 1793, he was imprisoned in France for not endorsing the execution of Louis XVI. During his imprisonment, he wrote and distributed the first part of what was to become his most famous work at the time, the anti-church text, The Age of Reason (1794-96). He was freed in 1794 (narrowly escaping execution) thanks to the efforts of James Monroe, then U.S. Minister to France. Paine remained in France until 1802 when he returned to America on an invitation from Thomas Jefferson. Paine discovered that his contributions to the American Revolution had been all but eradicated due to his religious views. Derided by the public and abandoned by his friends, he died on June 8, 1809 at the age of 72 in New York City.

Words of Founding Father Thomas Paine AGAINST Christianity:

“Persecution is not an original feature in any religion; but it is always the strongly marked feature of all religions established by law. Take away the law-establishment, and every religion re-assumes its original benignity.”-The Rights of Man, 1791

“Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst.”

“Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half of the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind.”

“What is it the New Testament teaches us? To believe that the Almighty committed debauchery with a woman engaged to be married; and the belief of this debauchery is called faith.”

“We do not admit the authority of the church with respect to its pretended infallibility, its manufactured miracles, its setting itself up to forgive sins. It was by propagating that belief and supporting it with fire that she kept up her temporal power.”

“I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any Church that I know of. My own mind is my own Church. Each of those churches accuse the other of unbelief; and for my own part, I disbelieve them all.”

“The story of Jesus Christ appearing after he was dead is the story of an apparition, such as timid imaginations can always create in vision, and credulity believe. Stories of this kind had been told of the assassination of Julius Caesar.”

“All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.”

“The study of theology, as it stands in the Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authority; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion.”

“Take away from Genesis the belief that Moses was the author, on which only the strange belief that it is the word of God has stood, and there remains nothing of Genesis but an anonymous book of stories, fables, and traditionary or invented absurdities, or of downright lies.”

“It is the fable of Jesus Christ, as told in the New Testament, and the wild and visionary doctrine raised thereon, against which I contend. The story, taking it as it is told, is blasphemously obscene.?

“It is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving. It consists in professing to believe what one does not believe.” The Age of Reason.

“Independence is my happiness, and I view things as they are, without regard to place or person, my country is the world, and my religion is to do good.” The Rights of Man.

“To argue with a man who has renounced reason is like giving medicine to the dead” The Crisis.

“All national institution of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appears to me no other than human interventions, set up to terrify and enslave most mankind, and monopolize power and profit.” The Age of Reason, Part 1, “The Authors Profession of Faith” 1794.

“Any system of religion that has anything in it that shocks the mind of a child, cannot be a true system.”

It is from the bible that man has learned cruelty, rapine and murder; for the belief of a cruel god makes a cruel man.”

“There is scarcely any part of science, or anything in nature, which those imposters and blasphemers of science, called priests, as well Christians, as Jews, have not at some time or other, perverted, or sought to pervert to the purpose of superstitions and falsehood.”

“The study of theology, as it stands in Christian churches, is the study of nothing, it is founded on nothing, it rests on nothing; it proceeds by no authority, it has no data, it can demonstrate nothing and admits of no conclusion.”  The Age of Reason.

“Of all the tyrannies that afflicts mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst. Every other species of tyranny is limited to the world we live in, but this attempts a stride beyond grave and  seeks to pursue us into eternity.”

“Everything wonderful in appearance has been ascribed to angels, to devils, or to saints. Everything ancient has some legendary tale annexed to it. The common operations of nature have not escaped their practice of corrupting everything.”

“The Bible: a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind.” The Age of Reason.

“The Christian system of religion is an outrage on common sense.”

“Priests and conjurers are of the same trade.” The Age of Reason.

“The story of the redemption will not stand examination. That man should redeem himself from the sin of eating an apple by committing a murder on Jesus Christ, is the strangest system of religion ever set up.”

“The Church was resolved to have a New Testament, and as, after the lapse of more than three hundred years, no handwriting could be proved or disproved, the Church, which like former imposters had then gotten possession of the State, had everything its own way. It invented creeds, such as that called the Apostle’s Creed, the Nicean Creed, the Athnansis Creed, and out of loads of rubbish that were presented it voted four to be the Gospels, and others to be Epistles, as we now have them arranged.”

“Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the Word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind, and for my own part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel.” The Age of Reason.

“As to the Christian system of faith, it appears to me as a species of atheism-a sort of religious denial of God It professed to believe in man rather than God. It is as near to atheism as twilight to darkness. It introduces between man and his Maker an opaque body, which is called a Redeemer, as the moon introduces her opaque self between the earth and the sun, and it produces by this means as a religious or irreligious eclipse of the light. It has put the whole orbit of reason into shade.”  The Age of Reason.

“The most detestable wickedness, the most horrid cruelties, and the greatest miseries that have afflicted the human race have had their origin in this thing called revelation, or revealed religion.”

“Yet this is trash that the Church imposes upon the world as the Word of God; this is the collection of lies and contradictions called the Holy Bible! this is the rubbished called Revealed Religion!”

“The New Testament, they tell us, is founded upon the prophecies of the Old;; if so, it must follow the fate of its foundation.”

“We do not admit the authority of the church with respect to its pretended infallibility, its manufactured miracles, its setting itself up to forgive sins. It was by propagating that belief and supporting it with fire that she kept up her temporal power.”

“I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any Church that I know of. My own mind is my own Church. Each of these churches accuses the other of unbelief, and for my part, I disbelieve them all.”

Our Founding Fathers were NOT Christians

President James Madison words AGAINST Christianity

President James Madison
President James Madison

The fourth President of the United States, James Madison, was much like the other Virginia presidents-Washington and Jefferson-who went before him. Like them, he loved his home state only a little less than his country. Like them, he was a rich man who gave his whole life to public service.  He was an able student of politics and government who brought real knowledge and skills to his job. In public office Madison was a calm, reasoning statesman who governed by force of logic. In a time when emotions ran high, he made common sense prevail. He was not always successful in dealing with foreign nations, but history has shown he had right and justice on his side.He entered the presidency at a time when war clouds hung over the young nation. He saw his country through the disastrous War of 1812, and his final months in office produced the “era of good feeling” that lasted for many years. He did well as Secretary of State and as President, but his greatest record was made earlier. For his outstanding work on the nation’s charter, Madison is known as the Father of the Constitution.

Words of James Madison Against Christianity:

“Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise.”-Letter to Wm. Bradford, April 1, 1774

The civil government functions with complete success by the total separation of the Church from the State.”-Founding Father James Madison, 1819, Writings, 8:432, quoted from Gene Garman,

“And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”-letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822.

“Every new and successful example of a perfect separation between ecclesiastical and civil matters is of importance.”— letter, 1822.

“It may not be easy, in every possible case, to trace the line of separation between the rights of religion and the Civil authority with such distinctness as to avoid collisions and doubts on unessential points. The tendency to unsurpastion on one side or the other, or to a corrupting coalition or alliance between them, will be best guarded agst. by an entire abstinence of the Gov’t from interfence in any way whatsoever, beyond the necessity of preserving public order, and protecting each sect agst. trespasses on its legal rights by others.”-“James Madison on Religious Liberty”, edited by Robert S. Alley, ISBN 0-8975-298-X. pp. 237-238.

“What influence, in fact, have ecclesiastical establishments had on society? In some instances they have been seen to erect a spiritual tyranny on the ruins of the civil authority; on many instances they have been seen upholding the thrones of political tyranny; in no instance have they been the guardians of the liberties of the people. Rulers who wish to subvert the public liberty may have found an established clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government, instituted to secure and perpetuate it, needs them not.”— “A Memorial and Remonstrance”, 1785.

“Experience witnesseth that ecclesiastical establishments, instead of maintaining the purity and efficacy of religion, have had a contrary operation. During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What has been its fruits? More or less, in all places, pride and indolence in the clergy; ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution.”-“A Memorial and Remonstrance”, 1785.

“Strongly guarded as is the separation between Religion and Government in the Constitution of the United States, the danger of encroachment by Ecclesiastical Bodies, may be illustrated by precedents already furnished in their short history.”-Monopolies, Perpetuities, Corporations, Ecclesiastical Endowments.

“Ecclesiastical establishments tend to great ignorance and corruption, all of which facilitate the execution of mischievous projects.”

“The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries.”— 1803 letter objecting use of gov. land for churches.
