Harry Potter is teaching kids witchcraft and America now bows to a Pagan god, warns Pastor John Hagee in his TV special, (apparently not from New York,) “Faith Under Fire.” And what is that “Pagan god?” Why, it’s called secular humanism, and it’s the scourge of the earth, evidently. Hagee, who is a Texas megachurch founder and author of the recent book, Can America Survive? Updated Edition: Startling Revelations and Promises of Hope, (actually, the author of a lot of books,) says that we can blame rape, spousal abuse, drugs, divorce and crime all on secular Humanism. Good Lord!

Thanks to Brian Tashman at Right Wing Watch for this transcript and for the video:

Secular humanism is a pagan god and America is bowing at the shrine. It has filled our drug rehab centers, it has filled the divorce courts, it has filled the shelter for battered wives, it has filled the rape crisis centers, it has filled the mental hospitals and single bars, it has filled the penitentiaries and the roster guests for the brain-​dead television shows you see from New York.

Think about that, we’re in a moral free fall where your children can be taught witchcraft by Harry Potter; that Heather has two mommies; you can substitute Christmas for a midwinter holiday, call it anything you want to but don’t call it Christmas, kick God out of the Christmas event; you can let your daughter go to school and she can get an abortion without your permission or without your knowledge but she cannot get an aspirin without your knowledge.

Something is dreadfully wrong when you as the parent cannot control the destiny of your own child. America has turned its back from the God of the Bible and it is time for the church of Jesus Christ to stand up and speak up and say we have a right to the destiny of our own children!

Before you go dismissing crazies like Hagee, know this (Via Wikipedia):

Hagee is the President and CEO of John Hagee Ministries, which telecasts his national radio and television ministry carried in the United States on 160 TV stations, 50 radio stations, and eight networks, including The Inspiration Network (INSP), Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), and Inspiration Now TV. The ministries can be seen and heard weekly in 99 million homes. John Hagee Ministries is in Canada on the Miracle Channel and CTS and can be seen inAfrica, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and in most Third World nations.

In 2007, Hagee stated that he does not believe in global warming, and he also said that he sees the Kyoto Protocol as a conspiracy aimed at manipulating the U.S. economy. Also, Hagee has condemned the Evangelical Climate Initiative, an initiative “signed by 86 evangelical leaders acknowledging the seriousness of global warming and pledging to press for legislation to limit carbon dioxide emissions.”

Hagee denounces abortion, and stopped giving money to Israel’s Hadassah Medical Center when it began performing the procedure.

He has spoken out against homosexuality, linking its presence in New Orleans to Hurricane Katrina as an act of divine retribution. He said in 2006, “I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God, and they are — were recipients of the judgment of God for that. The newspaper carried the story in our local area, that was not carried nationally, that there was to be a homosexual parade there on the Monday that the Katrina came.” However, on April 25, 2008, Hagee clarified his comments regarding Hurricane Katrina by saying, “But ultimately neither I nor any other person can know the mind of God concerning Hurricane Katrina. I should not have suggested otherwise.”

Want to know what really scares Hagee? Why, it’s secular Humanism. Here’s why (via Wikipedia):

Secular Humanism is a comprehensive life stance that focuses on the way human beings can lead happy and functional lives. Though it posits that human beings are capable of being ethical and moral without religion or God, it neither assumes humans to be inherently or innately good, nor presents humans as “above nature” or superior to it. Rather, the Humanist life stance emphasizes the unique responsibility facing humanity and the ethical consequences of human decisions. Fundamental to the concept of Secular Humanism is the strongly held viewpoint that ideology — be it religious or political — must be thoroughly examined by each individual and not simply accepted or rejected on faith. Along with this, an essential part of Secular Humanism is a continually adapting search for truth, primarily through science and philosophy.

(All emphases mine.)

Frankly, I’ve never understood why anyone would need to believe in or pray to God to know right from wrong. Perhaps secular Humanism isn’t the problem, perhaps it’s the answer.

Jim Hoft & the Right Wing Confederacy of Dunces

If you’re interested – as well as frequently amused – at the insane and jaw dropping rhetoric, insanities and antics of the American Right Wing, you might get a giggle as well as insight of their crackpot tactics and modus operandi from this piece we came across over at LGF, exposing the silly capers and nut bag antics of a Right Wing buffoon and mega gronk cllaed Jim Hoft:-

When Dim Bulbs Attack (or, A Confederacy of Dunces)

Imagine my surprise. Instead of retracting his monumentally dumb post claiming that the White House flashed “applause” signs at the Tucson memorial, Jim “Dim” Hoft goes on the attack — and it’s just as lame and dishonest as the stupid post he refuses to correct.

Hoft’s weird fantasy: Figures. Charles Johnson’s Crackpot Hero Arrested For Threatening to Kill Tea Party Leader on National TV.

What a shock.
Yesterday Charles Johnson was praising this far left crackpot for blaming conservatives for the Tuscon shootings.
(One more time: The tea party had nothing to do with the shootings. The shooter was an insane left-wing pothead.)

Flash Forward 24 Hours—

Today that same freak was arrested and charged with with threats and intimidation and disorderly conduct.

Violent crackpot Eric Fuller was arrested for threatening to kill a tea party leader live on national TV.

Don’t worry, Charles. I won’t smear Mr. Fuller.
I promise.

UPDATE: Fuller will undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
Charles is still on the loose.

To “prove” that Eric Fuller is my “hero,” Hoft takes a screenshot of my post. Apparently he believes I might delete this damning evidence of my idolization of Eric Fuller. Here it is:

Notice anything missing from that post? For example, any hint of “praise” for Fuller? Hoft is either too dim-witted to realize that his own screenshot puts the lie to his false claims, or he just doesn’t care.

In Hoft’s exceedingly vague right wing fantasy world, citing a news article and reporting it straight is exactly the same as “praise.” (And by the way, my prediction in that last sentence was proven true, as the right wing blogosphere immediately started attacking Mr. Fuller after his statement.)

And when Eric Fuller was charged with disorderly conduct for threatening a Tea Party leader (who, it should be noted, tried to blame the Tucson shootings on Giffords’ “lack of security”), I reported that too, long before Hoft got around to it.

Hoft knows he’s blatantly lying; he was just throwing out some more red meat to his equally dumb readers, and they respond in his comments with a predictable torrent of abuse and insults toward me, which has seriously hurt my feelings. (Now I must weep bitter tears.)

This is Jim Hoft’s modus operandi (look it up, Jim). When I pointed out last January that he used an anti-gay, antisemitic Bulgarian conspiracy site as a news source, Hoft responded by accusing me of “supporting child porn in schools.” That’s how Hoft rolls, and the right wing blogosphere rolls right along with him.

I notice that Hoft is no longer writing for the right wing Catholic site First Things. Did he finally get to be too insane even for them?
