Christian radio host: Marriage equality means ‘bull-rushing Gomorrah at warp speed’

Published

on

Christian radio host and Director of Issues Analysis for the American Family Association Bryan Fischer worn on his program on Thursday that the forthcoming Supreme Court ruling that may overturn the so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) means that “we will not be slouching toward Gomorrah, we will be bull-rushing Gomorrah at warp speed.”

“Here’s hoping that the Supreme Court will have enough constitutional sense, enough moral decency and enough foresight not to make a catastrophic blunder here,” referring to an upcoming Supreme Court ruling that will decide whether 1993’s DOMA, which establishes the federal definition of marriage as between one man and one woman, is unconstitutional. “So my hope is that the Supreme Court will give full faith and credit to the 30 states whose constitutions forbid same sex marriage.”

“If it doesn’t, it will be too late for America,” he continued. “If we don’t do this, we will be opening the door, then, not only to same sex marriage, they’ll be opening the door to transsexual marriages. They will be opening the door to polygamy. They will be opening the door to incest. They will be opening the door to pedophilia. They will be opening the door to best-bestiality [sic]. And it will be, at that point, too late for America. We will have become Rome; we will not be slouching toward Gomorrah, we will be bull-rushing Gomorrah at warp speed.”

Many expect the Supreme Court to rule on this case sometime in June.

Stop trying to convince people you’re right — it will never persuade anyone: expert

Published

on

MSNBC host Joshua Johnson noted that this year has been full of strife, with Americans having a lot to stand up about. Whether the slaying of unarmed Black men and police brutality, or healthcare, and the coronavirus, Americans are lining up to protest.

Johnson asked if people try to start tough conversations, how do they keep it productive, and when it's time to give up. In her book, We Need to Talk, Celest Headlee explains tools that people can use to have productive conversations about tough issues that help move the needle.

"Keep in mind that a protest isn't a conversation, right?" she first began. "That's a different kind of communication. The first thing is that our goal in conversations is not always a productive one. In other words, oftentimes, we go into these conversations hoping to change somebody's mind or convince them that they are wrong. You're just never going to accomplish that. There's no evidence. We haven't been able to -- through years and years of research we haven't been able to find evidence that over a conversation somebody said, 'You're right, I was completely wrong.' You've convinced me. So, we have to stop trying to do that. We have to find a new purpose for those conversations."

Trump’s Fox News interview turns into therapy session as he rants about bad coverage on the network

Published

on

President Donald Trump took his fight against Fox News to the network itself during a Sunday interview with Mark Levin.

The wide-ranging interview meandered from the California wildfires to an attack on Chicago that then became a complaint about Afghanistan and more. But at one point Trump turned to lash out at Fox News on the network itself.

"The Washington Post is a disaster," Trump began. "You can't get a good story. It's disgusting. And then you go to ABC. NBC is probably the worst of all. Concast. I call it Concast. Not Comcast. It's a con-job because they always try and protect their name like how legitimate they are. NBC is horrible. CBS is a disaster. Then you go into the real beauties MSDNC as we call it. And, of course, CNN. But at least CNN you know where they're coming from. You know they're stone-cold dishonest. At least you know that. So, it's a sad thing. It's a very sad thing. Fortunately, local press is extremely good. I get great local."

Trump doubles down on ‘exploding trees’ being the real cause of California wildfires — not heat or drought

Published

on

President Donald Trump doubled down on his "explosive tree" idea as the cause of the California wildfires.

Speaking to Fox News host Mark Levin, Trump explained that trees apparently explode, but trees in other countries are far worse than U.S. trees.

"I meet with foreign leaders of countries, and they have an expression, 'Sir, we are a forest nation.' But they say, 'we have trees that are far more explosive than the trees in California. We don't understand how a thing like that can happen. You have to manage your forest," said Trump.

It's a similar claim that Trump made while in California last week, claiming that the drought, heatwave and global climate change wasn't the cause.
