These 7 Christian leaders showed their love by celebrating the Orlando nightclub massacre

Published

on

There are family members that still haven’t been told if their loved ones are alive or dead after the shooting in Orlando Sunday. Yet, these so-called Christian leaders thought it would be a great time to talk about homosexual sin or cheer on the deaths of LGBTQ people.

1. There are “50 less pedophiles in this world.”

Hate leader and pastor Steven Anderson had some bigotry to spread Sunday afternoon and again Sunday night about the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida. In his first video, Anderson said there are “50 less pedophiles in this world.” His second video, he criticized any Christians who showed empathy for those killed in the massacre.

2. Westboro Baptist Church

The Westboro Baptist Church celebrated the deaths of the 50 people killed in Orlando in the same way they celebrated the deaths of those on 9/11 and the soldiers who have died in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They blamed the victims for their own murders, claiming the attack was the result of their own homosexuality and that “God sent the shooter” to kill them.

3. Sacramento Baptist Pastor applauds the Orlando shooting

“Hey, are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today? No … I think that’s great. I think that helps society. I think Orlando, Florida’s a little safer tonight,” he said to his flock. “It is unnatural for a man to be attracted to another man. The tragedy is that more of them didn’t die.”

4. Pastor Perry Noble of NewSpring Church in South Carolina

“I don’t think this is a gun control issue, I don’t think this is a gay issues,” Noble said as quoted in the Christian Post. “I don’t think even if you really want to boil it down, this is a religious issue. I think this is a heart issue. I think the biggest problem in our world today isn’t anything that we can legislate or pass a law against,” Noble said.

5. Pat Robertson: Gays & Islamists are allies so ‘let them kill themselves’

There were multiple incorrect reports directly after the attack that Pat Robertson made offensive remarks about the victims of the shooting. While those reports were false, it didn’t take long for “The 700 Club” televangelist to continue his hate, Right Wing Watch reports.

“We’re looking at a favored group by the left, the homosexuals, and that in Islam is punishable by death or imprisonment or some sanction, so what are the left going to do?” Robertson asked rhetorically. “How are they going to describe it? And they don’t know quite what to do now. The fact that this Islamic gentleman opens fire in a gay nightclub and kills almost 50 homosexuals, that says something and tells the fact that Islam is against homosexuality, so the liberals are going to be scrambling to find some rationale, I think they’re going to have a hard time doing it.”


6. Religious Right activist “Coach” Dave Daubenmire

On his Monday show “Pass the Salt,” Daubenmire claimed that the people murdered in the Orlando shooting were sacrificed by the devil to advance his larger goal to implement gun control and prompting the government to attack Christians, Right Wing Watch reports.

He continued, saying it’s not “gonna be the guys in the ghetto” killed due to gun control because “they’re already killing each other,” rather conservative Christians “bowing politically correct to Islam, politically correct to abortion, politically correct to homosexuality” who will die with gun control. Daubenmire said that he believes Islam is “the new religion” and “anybody who’s against this new religion, they’re going to get it.”

7. Pastor Bryan Fischer wants to “heal the gays.” I guess we should all be grateful he doesn’t want to shoot us?

6. Pastor Matt Barber of Liberty University hoped the homosexuals repented before they died.

Don’t be fooled by recent rulings: ‘Deeply conservative’ John Roberts has a long game

Published

on

In the right-wing media, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is being slammed as a traitor to the conservative cause because of his recent rulings on a Louisiana abortion law, LGBTQ rights in the workplace and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Many far-right pundits see the 65-year-old Roberts, who was nominated by President George W. Bush in 2005, as a traitor to the conservative cause. But journalist Sam Baker, in a June 10 article for Axios, stresses that Roberts — despite having some nuance — is still decidedly right-wing in his judicial philosophy.

The worst may be yet to come as America finally wakes up to Trump’s incompetence and cruelty

Published

on

Since Election Day 2016, America has been in a state of mourning.

Donald Trump's Independence Day speeches offered more of the almost never-ending funeral ceremonies for America's democracy, dignity and decency. Instead of trumpet-like exhortations to American greatness and goodness on the country's birthday, Trump chose to deliver horribly off-key funeral dirges.
