Facts

-- Asserts: So, America, here's a refresher. Homosexuality 101: The central, defining feature of homosexuality is same-sex sodomy, a filthy practice – both from a moral and biological standpoint – that spreads disease, ruins lives and mocks both God and nature. In short, these sexually confused and spiritually lost souls, particularly males caught-up in this lifestyle, can only "consummate" a counterfeit "gay marriage" through the squalid, unnatural and feculent abuse of both the reproductive and digestive systems. Yuck. Is it any wonder why these "gay" jihadists want us to focus on the subjective specter of "gay rights" and ignore the objective reality of "gay" wrongs? This is why they terrorize anyone who fails to conform.

-- Has said that gay male relationships constitute "one man violently cramming his penis into another man’s lower intestine and calling it ‘love’” 

-- On same-sex marriage: "Fake 'gay marriage' is fake 'consummated' through squalid & feculent abuse of the reproductive & digestive systems"

-- More: "Gay marriage" is a disordered, sin-based & oxymoronic novelty that mocks God & defiles any church in which the silly stunt is performed..."

-- Has called President Barack Obama an "anti-American" "enemy" who is "determined to destroy America

-- Claims LGBT activists want Christians "either 1) dead, 2) imprisoned or, if they can have neither of these, 3) marginalized to the point where they can’t even support their families."

-- Compares gay activists to "a swarm of locusts" with "a pagan morality;" claims the equality movement attacks "anything noble" 

-- Warns that God is going to destroy gay-accepting America: "Either way, God’s “due penalty” is non-discriminating. America’s official endorsement of “gay marriage,” “gay pride,” homosexualist indoctrination in our schools, “transgender” bathroom bills and bans on counseling to help with unwanted same-sex attraction will not end well.  Ask the Romans."

-- Says 2012 election results (President Obama, marriage victories, etc.) have invited God's wrath from which we may never be saved

-- Of a lesbian couple's parental decisions for their transgender child, said: "We shouldn't be surprised that we see this kind of child abuse and brainwashing when we allow children to be placed intentionally in motherless or fatherless homes that model disordered sexual behavior and push the false notion that human sexuality is somehow androgynous," adding that the kid is "the poster child against the unconscionable practice of legalized so-called 'gay adoption.'"

-- Says gay people "purchase kids" and treat them "like having little pets or something"

-- Says tolerance is a "cancer that brings down societies" before linking same-sex marriages to Noah's Ark and the Great Flood

-- Routinely uses words like "purveyors of evil" or  "satanic" (1:19 in video clip) to refer to his political opponents

-- Says parents of a transgender child should be investigated for child abuse

-- Said Ellen DeGeneres "guides her many adoring housewife fans into rebellion against God's divine and explicit natural order"

-- Claims that by supporting LGBT viewers, media outlets are trying "to make the absurd appear reasonable and normal" (0:46 - 0:51)

-- Says gays make up violence "as a Trojan Horse to force, to compel nations and individuals and groups and churches that embrace traditional values, relative to sexual behavior, to push them into the closet and say ‘no, no, you have to adopt a full affirmation of these perversions.’"

-- Says gay rights presents a "clear and present danger" and "internationally the greatest threat" (58:27-59:00)

-- Defends comparing bans on murder to bans on homosexuality: "If we cannot have laws prohibiting forms of sexual behavior, or that at least don't elevate and recognize forms of sexual behavior that have historically been considered immoral, then the law means nothing"

-- Equates gay people's marriages with theoretectical man-on-house-plant unions: "There are common-sense restrictions that are placed on the institution of marriage that we all must adhere to," Barber notes. "For instance, an adult cannot marry a minor child; a person cannot marry somebody who is too close to them from a familial standpoint; people cannot marry their house plant."

--Says the pro-LGBT President Obama is "an arrogant POTUS in rebellion against God"

-- Says LGBT activists "use" gay kids: "If you feel such despair, know this: it is not 'homophobia' causing it, as adult enablers might tell you, but, rather, it is the sin itself that causes it (or struggling alone, absent Christ, with the temptation to sin). You are being used. Adult homosexual activists with a political agenda are using you as a pawn to achieve selfish goals in a dangerous political game. You’re just a means to an end. They may have convinced themselves otherwise, but they don’t care about you. They don’t love you. They can’t. Their version of 'love' is built on lies. It’s devoid of truth. Love without truth is hate. If you continue down this wide, empty path, make no mistake: it will not 'get better.' It gets much, much worse."

-- Says gay couples are just "playing house" and are in "rebellion to God": "Just because two people want to play house and pretend that they’re a married couple, a man and a man or a woman and a woman, guess what, they still have to bring in a third party, whether it’s two lesbians with artificial insemination or two homosexual males through having to adopt from somebody who naturally had children. It’s an assault on truth, it’s an attack on truth and it’s rebellion against God."
