The left has figured out how to successfully push through its agenda by using one simple tactic: demonizing the right. Even if there is no truth to the cruel labels, the left has figured out they work. Repeat the words "bigot," "hate," "sexist" and "intolerant" enough and they will start to stick. It's known as the "framing war," and Republicans aren't very good at it, probably because we're too nice. We're the party of Judeo-Christian morality, so calling the opposition names isn't considered polite. Instead, we naively think we can stick to debating the substance of issues and the truth will win out.
We saw how a very small minority within the left, the gay community – less than three percent of the population – was able to implement same-sex marriage. A small group of radicals labeled anyone who disagreed with their approach as bigots full of hate. They launched a clever ad campaign with glamorous, photoshopped pictures of celebrities in white wearing No H8 stickers on their faces and duct tape over their mouths. The approach worked, and the movement picked up steam. Support for same-sex marriage increased from 27 percent in 1996 to 60 percent this year, culminating in last week's sweeping Supreme Court decision.
The irony was many of the activists were full of hate for anyone who disagreed with their methods - even libertarians who simply wanted government completely out of marriage. There was no room for compromise or alternative solutions. Christians found themselves on the receiving end of a barrage of profanity. But it didn't matter, the mantra had already been successfully set, that Christians were full of hate. In the biggest show of irony, the activists brazenly tweeted out profanity using the hashtag #LoveWins toward anyone who disagreed with their methods after the Supreme Court announced its decision. more >>
Texas' attorney general has released an official opinion declaring that state employees can refuse to issue marriage licenses to gay couples if they hold a moral or religious objection.
Attorney General Ken Paxton released the statement Sunday following the landmark Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide.
In his statement, Paxton denounced the 5-4 decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, but noted that the decision "acknowledged there are religious liberty protections of which individuals may be able to avail themselves." more >>
Texas pastor Voddie Baucham has appeared in a video produced by the desiringGod ministry, responding to the oft-repeated claim that "gay is the new black." He argues that some similarities between the two movements cannot undermine significant differences between ethnicity and sexual orientation.
Similarities exist because "there are some things that we accepted philosophically in the civil rights movement that were not based in biblical truth," which are being applied in the so-called gay rights movement the exact same way, says Baucham, pastor of preaching at Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring, Texas.
The video was posted on the desirigGod website the day after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution guarantees same-sex marriage across the country. President Barack Obama hailed it as "a victory for America." more >>
Dear Justice Kennedy,
I'm sure you are getting flooded with words of congratulations from your admirers and words of criticism from your detractors, but please allow me to offer my own hearty "thank" you – yet as a staunch critic of your decision, one of the most infamous in the history of our nation.
Why then do I thank you? more >>
The pace of change impacting the United States of America is accelerating at an alarming rate. This week the Supreme Court bolstered Obamacare by rewriting the law and sanctioning the subsidies that are the centerpiece of the program. On Friday, by a 5-4 margin, the justices legalized gay marriage in all 50 states. This sweeping decision rendered meaningless the vote of Americans in states across the nation.
In essence, these Supreme Court justices, a majority appointed by Republicans, have become a leading force in advancing the liberal agenda. According to research from the New York Times, 54% of the rulings in this term have been liberal, making it the most left wing Supreme Court in 46 years.
In Congress, spineless Republicans have refused to withdraw funding from Obamacare or the President's executive order to grant amnesty to five million illegal aliens. With de-facto open borders, illegal immigrants continue to stream into the country. Unlike previous generations, millions of both legal and illegal immigrants are clinging to the customs and culture of their homeland instead of assimilating into the United States of America. more >>
Newly released FBI documents confirm, just like President Obama, hard-core communism runs deep in the family of his most influential and trusted advisor, Valerie Jarrett. Ms. Jarrett is the one some describe as Mr. Obama's puppet-master…the wind beneath his wings…the real president.
The FBI documents reveal Ms. Jarrett's late father, James E. Bowman, was in contact with a paid Soviet agent wanted for espionage and was also involved with communist front groups in the 1950s. Her mother's father, Robert Rochon Taylor, was in a business relationship with the same Soviet agent linked to her father and also investigated by the FBI for his affiliation in communist groups. The FBI also flagged Ms. Jarrett's late father-in-law, Vernon D. Jarrett, as a domestic security risk, raising money and openly supporting communist candidates. He was assigned by Communist Party USA to a special cultural arts group whose mission was to propagate the Communist Party line through indoctrination using the media of the day, including newspapers and radio. In a nutshell, according to the FBI file, Ms. Jarrett's relatives were heavily involved with a group, Communist Party USA, whose mission was to fundamentally transform the American form of government and way of life.
The FBI report finally gives proof to support what many who've watched this White House with eyes wide open have long suspected: The children of communists are running our country in a way that would make their folks proud. But, to quote Hillary Clinton, using her most-annoying-sound-in-the-world-Benghazi-screech: "What difference does it make?" To answer, it makes a world of difference, considering there is no such thing as good communism, just bad and worse. more >>
