Facts

-- Called for the criminalization of "the public advocacy of homosexuality"

-- Insists homosexuality is the "harbinger of God's wrath," worse than any other sin

-- Suggests President Obama is secretly gay

-- Claims we are at the End Times and gays are the major issue/reason

-- Says homosexuality should still be considered a mental disorder: "In 1973, after an intensive campaign of pressure and harassment by LGBT activists, the board of the American Psychological Association voted to remove homosexuality as a mental illness from their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM), the “bible” of mental health professionals. It was as if they opened Pandora’s Box and unleashed an invisible plague that attacks the reasoning centers in the brain. Now forty years later the evidence is overwhelming that the DSM should never have been modified. The only problem is that most of the people with the power to change it back are now homosexualists themselves, infected with the same disorder. God help us." 

-- Compares current situation with President Obama, gays, and Democrats to the rise of the Nazis; Says the EndTimes will have a gay element to it and that the rainbow flag is a symbol of that

-- Is directly linked to anti-gay legislation in Uganda, which makes simply being gay punishable by death.  Said his 2009 conference in Kampala was a “nuclear bomb against the gay agenda in Uganda.

-- Sent letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin saying "homosexualization" must be fought just so that we can "redeem the future of mankind from a Fascist Leviathan, just as we did in World War II."

-- While defending Russia's anti-gay laws, says homosexuality is the biggest point of contention between U.S. & Russia (/Ukraine): "Russia appears to be returning to it’s pre-Soviet understanding that humans are made in the image of God, and that our “rights,” are really duties of respect and care for each other which are imposed on us by Him.  This is why the first principle of both the Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights is the protection of the Christian church, from which the very concept of modern human rights emerged.  And this is why the greatest point of conflict between the U.S. and Russia is the question of homosexuality.  (I believe even the conflict in Ukraine is being driven to a large extent by this issue, at least on the part of the Obama State Department and the homosexualist leaders of the E.U.)"

-- Claims homosexuality is the ultimate EndTimes sin, that it represents the "outer ring of rebellion against God, and that gays are the devil's perfect foot soldiers

-- Because of his intense influence and work in Uganda, has been blamed for the death of equality advocate David Kato.

-- Claims many gay people see and suffer from homosexuality as a "disorder": "it is important to keep in mind that many homosexuals are unwilling and unhappy members of this “gay” movement. For them homosexuality is not “gay” (meaning happy and carefree), but SADD, which is the acronym for “Same-Sex Attraction Disorder,” the condition with which they suffer. Even as we firmly resist the efforts of this destructive movement, we should not lose compassion for those who suffer from this terrible dysfunction. 

-- Agrees with Bryan Fischer that gays should be treated like intravenous drug users; says homosexuality is a "behavioral disorder" analogous to alcoholism

-- Inaccurately conflates bisexuality with polyamory; calls bisexuals "the turd in the 'gay wedding' punch bowl"

-- Is now advocating for anti-gay activism in Moldavia

-- Warns parents about "poisonous" gays: "…the “gay rights” movement is not benign. Its history is a poisoned stream whose headwaters begin in the swamp of Sadean perversion and whose direction was set by the same people who created the Nazi Party. In America its course has run mostly through underground sewers until the past few decades when control of the movement fell into the hands of modern marketing experts who have hidden the truth under a white-washed facade of their own shrewd design. And it is this sugar-sweetened poison that is about to be spoon-fed to America’s public school students. It is a 'gay' Kool-Aid of dangerous lies and it is to our great shame that this once-Christian nation will allow these innocent children to consume it without so much as a whimper of protest."

-- Said being gay should be criminalized like marijuana: “To reverse the current trend toward sexual anarchy, society will need to establish new public policies that actively discourage sex outside of marriage, including homosexuality. Such policies should be strong enough to prevent government from facilitating, endorsing or condoning sexual activity outside of marriage, but only as restrictive on personal liberties as necessary to maintain a family-centered culture. One model for such policy might be current laws in some states that criminalize marijuana usage but provide minimal sanctions for violations. People in these states may indulge themselves privately in this harmful conduct but cannot openly recruit others into their lifestyle or use the organs of government to advance their philosophy as normal and healthy.”

-- Said being gay will cause “some sort of infrastructure collapse in society.” (See 0:43 mark here.)

-- Said: "The gay movement is an evil institution that’s goal is to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity in which there’s no restrictions on sexual conduct except the principle of mutual choice."

-- Says gays and Christians are at war (beginning around 5:55)

-- Claims homosexuality "portends the End Times" and that President Obama is the AntiChrist who will oversee this end
