Facts

-- In rant supporting so-called 'ex-gay" therapy, said gay people are going to hell unless they "repent"/"change" (5:00-5:37): "If you choose the gay lifestyle you are not going to have a real married life and family. For sure. Same-sex couples don't produce children. You can never enjoy the complimentary of the male/female relationship. So when the "ex-gay" ministries tell people that if they give in to these temptations they won't be able to achieve a far greater happiness with an opposite sex partner, that's absolutely true. They also give them the truth of the Scripture, which is that people who are unrepentant homosexuals, like any unrepentant sinner who rejects the teachings of God and specifically the salvation provided by Jesus Christ, will go to Hell."

-- Should the Supreme Court rule in favor of marriage equality, Knight advises his readers to "announce loudly and clearly that they won’t go along with this abuse of language ruse"

-- Says President Obama's support for marriage equality is "attacking God's moral order," is "the Devil's work," and is "a wicked move"

-- Says "[h]omosexual activism is the spear point of the larger cultural blitzkrieg"

-- Accused LGBT activists of supporting inclusive service so they would wreck morality: "The military is a bastion of traditional values and symbolizes America’s strength and independence. Opening the ranks to open homosexuality will accomplish the left’s dream - undermining the military and transforming it into a wrecking ball against Judeo-Christian morality."

-- Declares that God "does not look likely" on transgener people and says they need help

-- Said those who protested Proposition 8 by making note of the public donor rolls are "the closest thing we have to Brownshirts...the prototypical Nazis"

-- Claims that President Obama's deicsion to drop defense of the Defense of Marriage Act is "an impeachable offense"; adds about the President's support for LGBT rights: "King George never tried anything this dialobolical

-- Says of the ACLU's support of LGBT rights/access: "If you were the devil, what would be your most important mission, other than inventing false religions? It would be to corrupt innocent children."

-- Claims gays "bullied" the American Psychiatric Association to declassify homosexuality as a mental illness (begins around 15:40)

-- Rants against the LGBT community's "evil" agenda" (4:36-5:10): [E]vil doesn't just happen, and evil doesn't create anything by itself. Evil is when you take something good and you pervert it slightly, sometimes so subtly people barely notice but then it becomes an instrument of something else. And what we're seeing is the homosexual movement is attempting to take everything we hold dear in society and twist it just a little bit to make it perverse and then declare that everybody's a little perverse so there's nothing really wrong, there's certainly no transcendent moral order, and it's all aimed eventually at the church.

-- Said of the film Brokeback Mountain: “It combines high production values with a lowdown attack on morality. It’s a mockery of the Western genre embodied by every movie cowboy from John Wayne to Gene Autry to Kevin Costner. I can’t think of a more effective way to annoy and alienate most movie-going Americans than to show two cowboys lusting after each other and even smooching." Added: "If it encourages even one confused boy to engage in sex with another male, that makes it an instrument of corruption, not one of enlightenment.""

-- Replies to the claim that Massachusetts was unharmed by same-sex marriage: "Well, the birds chirped and the flowers bloomed in Pearl Harbor on December 8, 1941, as the American fleet lay smoldering."

-- Said of a prominent car company's support for LGBT people (3:28-3:46): "This is not the compassionate thing to do, it doesn't help people who have the homosexual problem and are trapped in this lifestyle, and think there's no way out. If Ford really cared about homosexual people they would be sponsoring 'ex-gay' groups like PFOX and Exodus international, they would be getting health information out about the downside of homosexuality, instead of promoting a deadly lifestyle they'd care more." Added (5:50-5:58) that Ford was promoting "a deadly lifestyle that will eventually not only destroy the people who embrace it, but it will destroy freedom in this country."

-- Claims gays can "overcome" the "addiction" of homosexuality but the media keeps that information from getting out (at 15:40)

-- Once said of movement to "change" gays: "I consider the ex-gay movement a vital element of the revitalization of America itself. ... The ex-gay movement is one of the most powerful witnesses to this drift to moral relativism in the Church."
