Dave Welch

Founder and President, U.S. Pastor Council

Slurs former mayor of Houston: “We allowed a lesbian mayor to be elected because most of the churches were asleep and just didn’t care,” he said. “They didn’t understand the consequences of putting somebody in political power, with the authority of the sword, who has literally rejected every element of the created order of God and his word and his moral truths. Why would we expect somebody to act lawfully when they are living lawlessly?”

Believes transgender people can be “cured” through “Biblical therapy.”

—Claims President Obama “came out against God” when he supported marriage equality: “When marriage is everything, marriage is nothing. Obama and his radical allies of the sexual diversity agenda cannot redefine marriage, they can only undefine it and destroy it.”

—Refers to LGBTQ equality advocates as “purveyors of perversion” and equates LGBTQ rights with demolition: “Just as the movement itself has morphed from ‘gay rights’ to the alphabet list shown earlier, non-discrimination is now the hammer used to bludgeon communities into submission by the Purveyors of Perversion. While we’ve argued that ‘sexual orientation’ is a preference and not determined at birth, they blew right past us to add gender identity, gender expression and now… genetic information. While we get all worked up about our jobs, the economy and national security, the enemy has successfully destroyed our foundations. Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas described the mechanics of their recently completed destruction of some old church buildings and how explosive charges were placed at strategic locations in the buildings’ support beams at the foundation level. When the button was pushed, explosions were heard, but nothing happened. At least, not for a few seconds. Then, the buildings simply collapsed on themselves in a pile of rubble. I strongly urge you to watch the video and see these church buildings become nothing more than dust and wreckage. Then think of America following the same course. As these GLBTQIA operatives run for city councils, become mayors, sponsor referendums and carry out an effective takeover of your town, will they take you by surprise since it always happens ‘somewhere else’? When the dynamite explodes and the ‘institutions’ collapse, will you find you were too busy just living your own life and doing church to have seen what was coming?”

—Says of LGBTQ activists: “I submit that their conquest is not marriage or gender identity as much as continued perversion of all moral standards, destruction of absolute truth and rejection of the Author of that truth.”

—Claims LGBTQ rights are “equally offensive” to God as slavery, Jim Crow, and other forms of discrimination against African Americans: “It is hard to imagine how offensive it should be that the civil rights movement and the historic plight of blacks have now been hijacked by those of the lowest levels of sexual deviancy. The tyranny, oppression and evil of slavery, institutional discrimination, ‘Jim Crow’ laws and the dehumanizing of blacks (all products of rejection of a Christian worldview) were an offense to God. The perversion of man created in His image, the perversion of the marriage covenant and the perversion of justice are equally offensive to Him…. From the depths of my soul, I appeal to black pastors in particular to speak up NOW and stand against this wickedness and evil that has stolen the cause of racial equality and, as the Evil One always does, twisted it into moral decadence.”

—Attacks hate crimes protections, employment nondiscrimination, and inclusive military service with vicious language: “With the victory of adding ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘perceived gender identity’ to federal hate-crimes protected classes still hanging freshly upon their scalp pole, the Marxist-driven Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, There-Are-No-Limits movement is rushing forward to their next prey. As the radical sexual-diversity jihad in Congress pushes the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA)—again—as a direct frontal assault on freedom, religious faith, the traditional family and basic moral decency, we are also fighting against the perversion of military readiness by the Obama/Gates/Mullen plan to throw the doors open to open sexual deviancy in our armed services.”

—Viciously attacked the right of LGB people to serve openly in the armed forces: “‘I will end “don’t ask, don’t tell,”’ Obama said to a standing ovation from the crowd of about 3,000 at the annual dinner of the Human Rights Campaign, a gay civil rights advocacy group. If this brass had any brass they would have resigned rather than have a hand in torpedoing the institution they are charged with leading and serving—and therefore our very national security. The stealth attack of moral relativism, feminism, multiculturalism, etc., that have been allowed to creep into our military like the poisonous cloud of chemical weapons is only exacerbated by forcing—and I mean forcing—sexual diversity in the face of our men and women in uniform…. Removing the weakened restraint of don’t ask, don’t tell will release GLBTQIA activists onto our soldiers like hound dogs of hell as they use their ‘victim’ tactics to intimidate their way to full normalization at every level of every service.... What we now have are top military leadership who are so diluted by political correctness that we give Muslim radicals free reign, prosecute Marines and SEALs for doing their job, suppress religious expression—if it happens to be Christian—and now give destructive sexual behavior a promotion.”

—More attacks on “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal and LGBTQ equality in general: “DADT is not really about military effectiveness as much as about unleashing the demonic aggression that is now teaching kindergartners about condoms and gender identity full force into the last ‘masculine’ institution that represents the essence of right and wrong. If homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals and the gender confused are allowed to ‘serve openly,’ then they are given carte blanche to demand equality and acceptance at every level of military policy.”

—Insists of incest, pedophilia, and consensual same-sex relationships between adults: “God declares them each sin and therefore equivalent.
