They say, keep your friends close and your enemies (oh, apologies, as President Obama meant to say, “opponents,”) closer, so what could be closer than your iPhone? If you’re like me, mine is never more than a foot or two away. So now, while texting, tweeting, checking the market, emails, blogs, and the Times, I can check up on that nefarious hate group, the Christian Coalition. Yes, indeed, there’s an app for that.

Now, for those of you who might not remember, the Christian Coalition was founded by Pat Robertson. You remember Robertson, don’t you?

Watch: Pat Robertson Tells Millions Of Catholics In Haiti They Deserve It, “Made A Pact With Devil.”

Or, this gem from Robertson:

“But if we take biblical standards away in homosexuality, what about the other? And what about bestiality and ultimately what about child molestation and pedophilia? How can we criminalize these things and at the same time have constitutional amendments allowing same-sex marriage among homosexuals. You mark my words, this is just the beginning in a long downward slide in relation to all the things that we consider to be abhorrent.”

So, it turns out, the Christian Coalition’s iPhone app lets you “get connected, take action and stay informed on the critical issues that face our country.”

Like, no doubt, same-sex marriage, homosexuality, bestiality, child molestation and pedophilia.

Since Robertson left the helm of the Christian Coalition in 2005, they’ve become more politically-focused. Now, you can use their iPhone app to, “Help Us Defend ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’” “Contact Your Congressman as Soon as Possible To Oppose The ‘DISCLOSE Act,’” or read how “Democrats Vow To Ignore Voters.” It’s kind of like a dose of religious zealotry-cum-politics in the palm of your hand.

Oh, for all you separation of church and state buffs, like me, there’s this, via Wikipedia:

“In 1990, the national Christian Coalition, Inc., headquartered in Chesapeake, Virginia, began producing “non-partisan” voter guides which it distributed to conservative Christian churches, with 40 million being distributed in the 1992 and 1996 presidential election years. Complaints that the voter guides were actually partisan led to the denial of the Christian Coalition, Inc.’s tax-exempt status in 1999. In 2000 the coalition moved from its long-standing base of operations in the Chesapeake Bay area to an office on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. where they continue to be a major force on Capitol Hill.

“In 2005, the Coalition concluded a settlement agreement with the Internal Revenue Service, ending its long-running battle with that agency regarding its tax exempt status. As a result, the IRS has now recognized the Coalition as a 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organization, the first time in the Agency’s history that it has granted a letter of exemption to a group that stated in its application that it would distribute voter guides directly in churches. The consent decree enforces limitations on the terminology that may be used in the Coalition’s “voter guides”.”

Yeah, there’s an app for that…

Local NBC Affiliate: ‘Will The Acceptance Of Homosexuality In This Society Be The Downfall Of America?’

October 27, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

Yesterday, the Associated Press reported that President Obama has appointed upwards of 150 openly gay officials less than half way through his first term in office, surpassing “the previous high of about 140 reached during two full terms under President Bill Clinton.” Shin Inouye, a spokesperson for Obama said the president “is proud that his appointments reflect the diversity of the American public.” “He is committed to appointing highly qualified individuals for each post,” Inouye said. “We have made a record number of openly LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender) appointments and we are confident that this number will only continue to grow.”

For some, that may prove to be too much to handle, however. Today, KTBB AM600 host Garth Maier in Tyler, Texas responded to the AP report by asking his radio listeners and the morning show viewers of a local NBC affiliate if “the acceptance of homosexuality, pushed hard by the gay rights activists, will it be the fall of this country?“:

BOB BRACKEEN: A record number of openly gay appointees in the Obama administration. And there are other gay men and women who perhaps wish to keep their lives secret who also are in the Obama administration, perhaps as judges as well. [...]

GARTH MAIER: President Obama very aggressive with his appointment of homosexuals. Christian conservatives of course criticizing Obama for upholding what is considered by many an immoral lifestyle….What do you think, the acceptance of homosexuality, pushed hard by the gay rights activists, will it be the fall of this country? [...]

CALLER 1: We know that there are more gays in Washington, DC than there is in San Francisco or Southern Florida or anywhere in this nation. There are double, trust me, three times as many gays in Washington, DC than there is in San Francisco. So if he hired a bunch of them, probably because all anyone was there to work. So you need help, you need help! [...]

CALLER 2: I think the whole issue of homosexuality is overblown. We seem to be so conscious about being politically correct. According to most of the statistics homosexuals occupy just 7% of the population, so why do we spend 30% of our time talking about it? [...]

MAIER: Will the acceptance of homosexuality in this society be the downfall of America?….Will it be that destroys American society as we know it right now? You see it everywhere accepted at every level and certainly in the entertainment industry since the late 1980s, all over, gay characters in television shows, in the movies, so on and so forth. [...]

BRACKEEN: Again, the last caller, hit the nail on the head, Garth. Obviously the mainstream media, Hollywood caters to less than 10% of the population. They have a very strong voice in this country. Politically and in pop culture as well.

Watch it:

Maier has a history of anti-gay remarks and innuendo. During Elena Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court, for instance, Maier reported “there have been numerous question about her own sexuality” and asked, “does it matter to you?” “Considering perhaps a justice on the high court, being a homosexual. Does the sexual orientation of a Supreme Court nominee matter to you?” “I’m curious to see if any of the conservatives will raise questions about her orientation and see if she’ll answer questions about it,” he added.

Calls to KTBB and Maier were not immediately returned.

The Cure For Homosexuality

October 20, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

Jamie Kirchick reports from Belgrade:

How does Petrovic and his team ("me and my friends," as he describes them) claim to cure homosexuality? Quite simply: Patients must cut out junk food from their diet, "drink a lot of water," "reject anything that is diarrhetic, alcohol, caffeine," engage in "physical activity," "rest [at] appropriate times." Plus, one "must think about good things." Oh, and receive regular enemas.

There's an audio interview with the "doctor" as well.

Gohmert Likens Homosexuality To ‘Adultery’, Suggests Gays People ‘Cannot Control Their Hormones’

October 18, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

During an appearance on the Family Research Council’s Washington Watch Weekly radio program on Friday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) likened homosexuality to ‘adultery’ and suggested that gay people wouldn’t be able to control their hormones if allowed to serve openly in the armed forces:

GOHMERT: Some people say, “Where is homosexuality in violation of the Ten Commandments?” Well it’s adultery, it’s sexual relations outside of marriage, a man and a woman ….. specifically for the military, when anyone, whether their homosexual or heterosexual, cannot control their hormones to the point that they are distraction[s] to the good order and discipline of the military, then they need to be removed from the military. [...]

PERKINS: What happens if the courts or even congress — that is currently debating this issue — changes the policy? Will that not ultimately lead, if you have to say homosexual behavior is acceptable — would not then the policies have to be changed or the laws, rather changed about heterosexual immorality?

GOHMERT: Well of course it would.

Listen:

These comments only add to Gohmert’s long list of homophobic remarks. Last year, Gohmert called the DADT repeal “perverse…social experimentation” and said that soldiers are being “held hostage by a sociological attack.” His rant included a bizarre argument that the Matthew Shepard hate crimes bill would lead to a legalization of necrophilia, pedophilia, and bestiality and said that taking away “moral teaching in America” would create a situation similar to that of Germany in the “1920′s and 1930′s” when a “little guy with a mustache” took over.

On a substantive note, as CAP’s Larry Korb points out, DoD should implement a broad code of social conduct that covers all personal relationships and behavior that undermine good order and discipline, whether they’re the fault of gay or straight soldiers. (H/T: Good As You)

LMAO: Jarrett Apologizes for Calling Homosexuality ‘Lifestyle Choice’

October 14, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

Why are people so afraid of others?  Muslims, GLBTs … good Lord, every little perceived hurt is all of a sudden enough provocation to boycott sometime or, in the case of the former, kill a Jew.

Relax, clowns:

White House senior adviserValerie Jarrett apologized to the gay community Thursday after she referred to homosexuality as a “lifestyle choice” during a discussion about the wave of recent teen suicides.

“I meant no disrespect to the LGBT community, and I apologize to any who have taken offense at my poor choice of words,” Jarrett said in a written statement.

Oh, so now every gay person out there was born that way.  And, in the spirit of peer-reviewed climate science, would you care to offer your proof of that?

Didn’t think so.

Paladino: Homosexuality is not ‘valid or successful option’

October 11, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

New York (CNN) - New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino has said that homosexuality is not “an equally valid or successful option” compared to heterosexuality.

Paladino said he doesn’t want children “to be brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid or successful option … it isn’t.” He made the remarks Sunday to an Orthodox Jewish group.

A prepared version of his remarks, obtained by CNN from New York affiliate NY1, contained two lines that Paladino did not actually deliver. Those lines said, “There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual. That is not how God created us.” Paladino emphasized in a statement on Sunday night that he did not include those lines when he delivered his remarks.

Top Evangelical David Barton: Maybe Government Should ‘Regulate Homosexuality’

October 6, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

David Barton, an evangelical and social conservative well known for his somewhat revisionist history and appearances on Glenn Beck’s show, yesterday took the opportunity on his radio show to ask that age-old question: “Why don’t we regulate homosexuality?”

Barton was talking about the government’s involvement in the health of the American people: “We have a Department of Health and Human Services; we have health care bills; we have health insurance and we’re trying to stop all unhealthy things so we’re going after transfats and we’re going after transparency in labeling to make sure we get all the healthy stuff in there.”

He continued:

So if I got to the Centers for Disease Control and I’m concerned about health, I find some interesting stats there and this should tell me something about health.

Homosexual/bi-sexual individuals are seven times more likely to contemplate or commit suicide. Oooh, that doesn’t sound very healthy.

Homosexuals die decades earlier than heterosexuals. That doesn’t sound healthy.

Nearly one-half of practicing homosexuals admit to 500 or more sex partners and nearly one-third admit to a thousand or more sex partners in a lifetime.

So, he concluded: “I mean, you go through all this stuff, sounds to me like that’s not very healthy. Why don’t we regulate homosexuality?”

Full transcript and audio here.

Barton, as we’ve reported, is president of WallBuilders, a group that pushes a Christian-themed interpretation of American history. He appeared as an “expert” witness in the Texas Board of Education textbook hearings. He is a frequent guest on Glenn Beck’s program, and was even one of the “professors” at Beck University, Glenn Beck’s online university, where he talked about the influence of clergy members in the writing of the Declaration of Independence.

But he’s got some pretty strong roots in politics as well. He served as the chair of the Texas GOP, campaigned with Florida Senate nominee Marco Rubio (R), launched an effort with Newt Gingrich on behalf of Sharron Angle in Nevada, and stumped for John McCain in 2008.

Rick Green, his co-host on the radio show and a fellow WallBuilders advocate, is a former Texas legislator who ran (and lost) in the primary for the state’s Supreme Court this year.

CNN’s Phillips Endorses Liberal Minister Critical of Blacks’ Attitudes on Homosexuality

September 27, 2010 · Posted in The Capitol · Comment 

CNN’s Kyra Phillips gave a ringing endorsement to a Christian minister and his heterodox views on homosexuality on Monday’s Newsroom. Phillips interviewed televangelist Bishop Carlton Pearson, who, in her words, went "out on a limb…[to] say gays are accepted in heaven," and concluded the segment by stating how she "respect[s] very much" what he preached on the highly-debated moral issue.

The anchor led the 10 am Eastern hour with the allegations against Bishop Eddie Long, who has been sued by four young men so far who accuse him of coercing them into sexual relationships. Four minutes into the hour, Phillips introduced Pearson as a "pioneering black televangelist and a close friend of Eddie Long’s…[who] lost a lot of his flock when he began preaching that everyone has a place in heaven, including gay people." She first asked the bishop, "Why did you go out on a limb and say gays are accepted in heaven, something that the black church disagrees with?"

Pearson lauded his "gay friends" as "some of the most sensitive, loving, creative, ingenious, generous people" and touted how he "started preaching the Gospel of inclusion" and criticized how supposedly "the devotion to the devil and hell is stronger, or as strong as anybody’s devotion to Jesus in many of the Christian circles." After spending some time discussing what Pearson knew of Long, Phillips posited what would happen if the accused minister came out as a homosexual: "What if he does come forward, Bishop, and say, I told you I wasn’t a perfect man and I’ve been- I have been struggling with this issue, and he does say that he’s gay. What if this story changes? How will you deal with that? Will you accept him? Will you embrace him? How would you counsel him as his friend?"

The CNN anchor’s guest devoted some of his subsequent answer to again criticizing the traditional Christian teaching on homosexuality and sexuality in general: "How do we deal with our sexual side, our sensual side, our spiritual side? They- because they interplay. They interact. So, it’s- it’s wrong for- I’m not for Christian cannibalism, eating our dead or dying, destroying them the way we do so many people."

Phillips and Pearson devoted most of the second half of the segment to discussing and critiquing black cultural attitudes towards homosexuality:

PHILLIPS: You’ve talked about this as well, the issue of being a black gay man, especially in the Church, and a man within ministry- gospel music. There have been allegations that have come forward, there have been individuals that have come forward and said, I’m gay and have been completely shut out of the black church because of that.

PEARSON: Yes.

PHILLIPS: Why is it so unacceptable to be a black man and to be gay and to lead a flock? Why is it so taboo?

PEARSON: Well, first of all-

PHILLIPS: It’s not just biblical. I mean, there’s a cultural feeling here.

PEARSON: Of course. Yes. That’s for white folks. Y’all are supposed to do, when in comes to that. We don’t do that kind of stuff. We [are] real men. That’s- I said that in jest, but that’s the underlying-

PHILLIPS: No, but that’s interesting. That’s what’s going on.

PEARSON: Yes. That’s we don’t do weird stuff. Now, the other hypocritical aspect of that is our churches, Kyra, are filled with same gender loving people, from the music department to the pulpits- black music, church music- where would it be without our same gender loving or gay musicians and singers? Not all of them are.

PHILLIPS: But many have come to you and said, I’m gay, but I can’t come out.

PEARSON: Oh, yes. Oh yes.

PHILLIPS: And we’re talking very powerful people in the gospel industry.

PEARSON: Yes, ma’am.

PHILLIPS: I’ve met them.

PEARSON: Yes, ma’am. With tears in their eyes, they were afraid. There are people who’ve come to me and say, I embraced your gospel of inclusion, Bishop, but I can’t- it’s not a theological issue with me. It’s a business decision. I’ll lose my flock. I’ll lose my money. I’ll lose my parishioners. I’ll lose myself. I can’t love everybody. I can’t even love me, he would say. And I want to say to that group- and this is a wake-up call. Until the church, black or otherwise- confronts- not combats- confronts this issue of human sexuality and homosexuality, which is not going away- homosexuals and homosexuality is not going away- if every gay person in our church just left or those who have an orientation or preference or an inclination, or a fantasy, if everyone left, we wouldn’t have a church.

The bishop even specifically targeted the Catholic Church in his criticism of traditional Christianity:

PEARSON: There are gay doctors, police officers, attorneys, priests. Look at the whole Catholic Church. All this idea of celibacy. It’s not even natural, but it’s out. It’s like the Christian Church is having to confront its issues, its platonic, plastic, superficial portrayals of an angry God, a vicious God, an eternal place where everybody’s going to burn and this God with this terrible anger management problem who’s going to get you and then He’s going to turn you over to the devil, who’s going to accuse you to Him, and it’s fairy tale stuff. But we bought into it, and now we’re having to face the fact that maybe we missed it on many of these issues.

Phillips enthusiastically responded to Pearson’s out-of-the-mainstream theology at the end of the interview: "Well, I respect very much what you’ve preached, so I look forward to talking to you more about this." This stance isn’t at all surprising, as the CNN anchor endorsed three of her previous guests who hold similarly heterodox views inside Christianity during a March 26, 2010 segment. She even brought back two of them a month later.

CNN, as a whole, has latched onto promoting the agenda of homosexual advocacy groups during 2010. On August 4, the day that a federal judge overturned California’s Proposition 8, the network leaned mostly towards those who opposed the voter-approved amendment which bans same-sex "marriage." A month and a half earlier, senior political analyst Gloria Borger gave a glowing profile of Ted Olson and David Boies, the two main attorneys who worked to overturn Prop 8. CNN also premiered their pro-homosexual parenting documentary, "Gary and Tony Have a Baby," on June 24 and promoted it with a series of pro-homosexual agenda segments during that month.
