-- Editor of extremist website World Net Daily (now called simply "WND")

-- Self-proclaimed "birther king.”

 

Facts-

-- Predicts gays' "twisted unions" will "bring down American faster" than anything else

-- Because of the church's allowance of same-sex marriages, he called the Presbyterian Church USA an "apostate church from hell"

-- Calls marriage equality for same-sex couples "one of the most radical ideas considered since child sacrifice"

-- His thoughts regarding pro-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, & transgender) presidential appointments: “I wonder what kind of database Obama uses to locate people like [openly gay Kevin Jennings and Chai Feldblum]? Is it Monster.com? That would be appropriate. Or is it FreaksUnlimited.com? Maybe Obamanations.com? No, it's got to be Perverts.gov. I'm telling you, the entire federal government is going to have to be fumigated some day when these deviants and degenerates are finally sent packing.”

-- Claimed that the August 2011 east coast earthquake was a “sign to us of the consequences of disobedience and indifference to our Creator.”

-- Because of a law protecting transgender students, writes the following about California schools: "If you’ve got kids in California public schools, there are many reasons to pull them out. But this one takes the cake. Don’t wait for your child to be abused. It’s only a matter of time now. Subjecting your kids to California authorities is itself a form of child abuse."

-- Insinuates that LGBT acceptance = child abuse: "What’s happening in our society today is nothing short of the active recruitment of children into aberrant sexual lifestyles. We once called this child abuse. But today it’s official state policy"

-- Wrote article claiming to "cite similarity between homosexual activists, Hamas terrorists": "...[W]hat same-sex marriage advocates and the terrorists of the Gaza Strip have in common is their desire to destroy something they find repulsive. In Gaza, it’s the Jewish state of Israel. Among homosexual activists, it’s the institution of marriage."

-- Tried to blame the Penn State abuse scandal on LGBT acceptance: "In an age when government schools are actually teaching children how to perform homosexual acts and that there is nothing wrong with them, it would seem that an environment conducive for predators of children is being created under the watchful eye of the state and the media."

- Led the extremist "birther" accusations against President Obama; World Net Daily ran over 600 articles accusing the President of not being a U.S. citizen. 

-- World Net Daily published an op-ed explaining that “evil Hillary” Clinton will seek to "finally obtain proof positive that President Obama was born in Kenya." The op-ed insinuated that this would save her the inconvenience of having to kill him.

-- In another World Net Daily column, one of Farrah’s op-ed writers explains events taking place post Osama Bin Laden’s death as “Obama and his Muslim friends literally ‘making love’ with each other.” 

-- Says transgnder men and women are attempting "to change one’s sexual plumbing in a bizarre and twisted medical mutilation"

-- Says homosexuality threatens the nation: "It’s not only the kind of unrepentant sin that will keep someone from eternal life with God, it’s the kind of sin that defiles the land. It’s the kind of sin that caused the inhabitants of Canaan to be spued out, opening the door to the nation of Israel. It’s the kind of sin that brings on national judgment."

-- Says of President Obama's support for marriage equality: "As a man claiming to be America’s leader, Obama has cursed us all. In fact, he himself represents one of those judgments that, I believe, is already upon us as a nation."
