Right-Wing Pastor Says LGBT Americans Should Be Forced To Wear A Warning Label On Their Foreheads

You’ve probably never heard of right-wing “Christian” pastor Andrew Wommack, but he’s advocating that all LGBT Americans be required to wear some sort of a “label” across their foreheads that warns homosexuality “can be hazardous to your health.”

Speaking with religious right activist Janet Porter, who was discussing Caitlyn Jenner, who is running as a Republican to be governor of California. Porter told Wommack:

“I’m praying for Bruce Jenner, who goes by ‘Caitlyn’ Jenner. I’m praying against the suicide that happens with people that engage in this kind of thing. It’s very, very sad.”

That was all Wommack needed to go off on an extended rant about homosexuality:

“Homosexuals have like three times as much suicide as heterosexuals, and then you go into transgenders, and it just continues to go up. It’s a very destructive lifestyle. They have 20 years less that the homosexual lives than a heterosexual. And, you know, cigarettes take an average of seven years off of a person’s life, so homosexuality is three times worse than smoking. We ought to put a label across their forehead, ‘This can be hazardous to your health.’”

Wommack is also engaged in trying to take over a town in Colorado so that it can become a safe haven for hate-filled pretend Christians, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette:

“Health and wealth teacher Andrew Wommack has long urged his followers to ‘take back Colorado’ from the ‘demon-possessed’ socialists and Democrats who’ve turned the state from red to blue. Last month, that rallying cry became practical, as Wommack urged followers to take control in Woodland Park and Teller County.”

What’s most ironic about Wommack calling for those he disagrees with to wear a warning on their forehead is that this is the very thing so many right-wing Christians believe is a sign of the “end times.” According to them, the Antichrist will make all people wear the “mark of the Beast” on their foreheads if they want to buy and sell anything. This is referenced in the Biblical Book of Revelation, which states:

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” (Revelation 13: 15-18)

Yet here we have a so-called “Christian” calling for the same thing to be done to anyone who is LGBT. That alone tells you all you need to know about Andrew Wommack.

Snowflake Huckabee Whines About Being Removed From Country Music Board (VIDEO)

Poor Mike Huckabee. He’s upset because even though his favorite bigoted asshat, Donald Trump, is in the White House, it’s still not totally cool to be a hate-filled piece of crap unless you’re willing to accept the consequences.

Just last week, Huckabee was removed from the board of the Country Music Association Foundation due to his offensive remarks about LGBT Americans. So naturally, he decided to go on Fox & Friends Monday morning and be a crybaby, complaining:

“The new direction of the left is ‘in the name of tolerance be intolerant. In the name of love, hate people. In the name of diversity, demand conformity.’”


You’d think that if Huckabee is so enraged by the left, he’d be only too happy to not serve on any board that doesn’t share his beliefs. Instead, he seemed to suggest that he had some kind of right to be allowed on the CMA board:

“It’s not enough to say I disagree and wish this person would change his mind. Today it’s let’s put him out of business, let’s close his store. Let’s not allow him to continue to operate a business, let’s damage him professionally, let’s hurt his brand. I mean, it’s all about destroying the other side, rather than disagreeing with the other side. That’s not the kind of America where the First Amendment reigns and people are free to speak, to associate. Today it’s let’s destroy everyone who doesn’t agree with me.”

In essence, what Mike’s longing for is this: When you could still be a racist, sexist, homophobic shitbag and there were no repercussions for it. You know, the way it was in the 1950s when WASPs ruled the world and there was no such thing as homosexuality or being transgender.

Spare us the outrage, Mike! The biggest outrage of all is that jackasses like you are still given airtime on any network.

REPORT: Trump Often Says Pence ‘Wants To Hang’ All LGBT People

Perhaps you’ve wondered how someone as immoral and corrupt as President Trump manages to work with a supposedly religious person like Vice President Mike Pence. And it turns out the answer definitely proves what massive hypocrites both men are.

In a new report from Jane Mayer of the New Yorker, we learn that Trump is fond of making fun of Pence’s beliefs. During a discussion of gay rights, Trump allegedly pointed to Pence and commented:

“Don’t ask that guy—he wants to hang them all!”

Another time, Mayer notes, a legal scholar told Trump and Pence that even if the Supreme Court did overturn the Roe v. Wade decision which legalized a woman’s right to an abortion, many states would legalize the procedure. That led Trump to tell Pence:

“You see? You’ve wasted all this time and energy on it, and it’s not going to end abortion anyway.”

Trump is also known to ask people who have just come out of a meeting with Pence:

“Did Mike make you pray?”


Given that Pence has such extreme views on so many issues, should Democrats and progressives hope that Trump isn’t forced from office? Ron Klain, who was chief of staff to the former Vice-President Joe Biden, commented:

“There is no success for Mike Pence unless Trump works—he cannot run far enough or fast enough to not get hit by the falling tree. But he may think he can.”

Pence is also far from spotless when it comes to the Russia investigation. As chair of the transition team, Pence personally approved the appointment of Michael Flynn as National Security Adviser. Flynn was later fired when it became clear he had taken large sums of money from both Russia and Turkey. If Pence and his team vetted Flynn, how did they ever allow such a shady figure to be given one of the most important jobs in the new administration? Mayer writes:

“But had Pence stopped Flynn’s appointment Trump might not have become the object of a sprawling special investigation. Phil Sharp, the former Indiana representative, said, ‘There’s a leadership test here. There are real issues, and a failure to do something he was legally, ethically, and politically responsible for.’ Sharp added, ‘It also failed the basic Washington litmus test of self-preservation.’

“On February 13th, Trump fired Flynn, ostensibly for deceiving Pence, who looked like either a liar or a chump.”

Either way–liar or chump–Pence is up to his eyebrows in the Russia investigation. And even if he chooses to toss Trump under the bus, it may not be enough to save his own skin or his beloved Republican Party.

Fox News Guest: Confederate And LGTBQ Pride Flags Are ‘The Exact Same Thing’ (VIDEO)

Did you know that the Confederate flag is the same thing as the rainbow LGBTQ pride flag? According to an idiot who appeared on Fox News Tuesday morning, the two are “the exact same thing.”

Conservative commentator Star Parker appeared on Fox & Friends to let the world know just how clueless she truly is. Parker was asked by co-host Steve Doocy what she thought about Nancy Pelosi’s comments that President Trump should fire senior adviser Steve Bannon:

“What do you think about [Pelosi], who made this statement yesterday: ‘It shouldn’t take the president of the United States two days to summon the basic decency to condemn murder and violence by Nazis and white supremacists.’”

Parker replied:

“That is not what happened. Nancy Pelosi is exploiting an opportunity that they think will play to their side. On Saturday, there were two sides that were in an American city that were ― then it was escalating very rapidly. No, the question became then, well, do you denounce the one part of it?”

Next, Parker said that it’s ironic some people are offended by the Confederate flag:

“But you know what’s really interesting and really incredible irony here is the same people that are demanding that the Confederate flag comes down are the same people that are insisting that the rainbow flag goes up. These two flags represent the exact same thing. That certain people groups are not welcome here. So if Nancy Pelosi wants to say that we’re going to start shutting down First Amendment rights of a certain group of people, then what happens the next time that the homosexuals want to walk through an American city and protest and counter protesters come out?”

Those two flags represent the exact same thing? Let’s examine that, shall we? The Confederate flag represents slavery and white supremacy. The pride flag represents tolerance and acceptance. Yeah, totally the same thing.

No wonder conservatives sound so damn stupid when they talk; they’re really that damn stupid!

Ted Cruz’s Father Says LGBT Rights Will Lead To Football Teams Showering With Girls

In what may well turn out to be one of the most utterly ridiculous statements yet issued from the far right of the Republican Party, Rafael Cruz, Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s father, is attempting to stir up fear with the assertion that LGBT nondiscrimination ordinances will lead to boys football teams deciding “that they want to shower with the girls.”

Speaking to a Baptist church in Edmond, Oklahoma, last week, Rafael Cruz, began his speech by asserting that the Supreme Court’s actions striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) has led to horrible things in towns across America:

“In Houston, Texas, in the heart of the Bible Belt, that city has a lesbian for a mayor. Well, a few months ago that mayor and that city council passed an ordinance that if a man, today, feels like a woman, he has the right to walk into a women’s bathroom. And if a woman is in there and she complains, she can be sued for that man because she is violating his civil rights.”

Does anyone really care who happens to be in a public restroom with them? Personally, I just go in, do my business, wash my hands, and leave. I don’t make it a point of looking around and asking for identification from everyone else in the room. In Europe, many public accommodations are unisex, but they seem to manage just fine, thank you.

But wait, listen as Pastor Cruz (yep, he’s a minister, too) takes his flawed logic and jumps off into the abyss of complete idiocy:

“As a matter of fact, according to that ordinance, if the football team in the high school decides that they want to shower with the girls and the girls complain, they can be sued. This is an abomination!”

Not only that, but pretty soon cats and dogs will be cooperating with each other, mating, and spawning half-cat/half-dog hybrids that will attempt to rule the world! What will we call our new overlords? Cogs? Dats? Or simply “master?”

You know, I’ve heard some really stupid, unbelievable arguments against LGBT rights in recent months, but I think Rafael Cruz has now earned the award for Most Batshit Crazy Hater. I wait with bated breath to hear his next flurry of inanity.
