AFA News Director Says Liberal Churches, Media Share Responsibility for Colorado Shooting

From Right Wing Watch:

Fred Jackson, American Family Association

Fred Jackson, the American Family Association’s news director, while discussing the Colorado movie theater shooting today said that liberal Christian churches and liberal media helped contribute to violent incidents by supposedly deemphasizing the fear of God and the Bible.

During AFA Today, Jackson had on as his guest Jerry Newcombe of Truth in Action Ministries to discuss his column on the AFA’s OneNewsNow blaming the shooting on a waning fear of God and Hell, and blamed the American Civil Liberties Union for destroying the public school system by supposedly forbidding students from reading the Bible. “You wonder why all these terrible things are happening to us when there is no fear of God,” Newcombe said.

Jackson maintained that unlike in the communities of forty years ago, liberals in the media and churches, along with movies and the internet, have “have come together to give us these kinds of incidents.”

Later in the program, Jackson and co-host Teddy James of AFA Journal said the shooting is a sign of God’s judgment for the failings of the public education system and liberal, mainline Protestant churches that affirm gays and lesbians.

Maybe you understand why I have so little respect for right wing Christianity. What mystifies me is that there are people who believe this bullshit.

Quote from the Looney Bin..er…the Religious Insane:

I wonder why he’s no longer a Navy Chaplain.

Former navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt, founder of the lobbying group Pray In Jesus Name Project, appeared on a progressive talk show (The David Pakman Show) this week to criticize President Barack Obama’s endorsement of same sex marriage. He ended up promoting his theory that gay people unknowingly secrete invisible, evil creatures which find and possess certain animals, turning them gay as well:

“It is entirely possible — we know from the Bible, for example, when Jesus cast the devil out of Legion, he went into a herd of pigs. So, it is possible for demons or the devil to inhabit or invade animals just the same way they invade humans, and that causes the sin of lust.”

So, if you’ve been wondering what causes gay pigs, here is the answer from a guy who thinks the LGBT community has an agenda” to “repopulate their population by recruiting the children of heterosexuals.” And animals, too.

Klingenschmitt thinks everyone is borne heterosexual, but is converted to homosexuality mostly by gay television programming. So I think we can solve the pigs problem by just turning off the TVs in the sty.

What? They don’t have television in the sty?

Hmmmm.
