AFA has advocate for executing gays and abortion providers on its radio show

“The Bible lays forth the severest penalty, which would be capital punishment for two men who publicly engage in sodomy.”
— Gary DeMar on gays

“Well, one of the best writers out there in the Christian community and thinkers is Gary DeMar.”
— Tim Wildmon on DeMar

Media Matters points to more homo-bashing and homo-fixation by the American Family Association. This is beyond the pale. It seems Tim and Don Wildmon don’t mind sharing the airwaves with a man who thinks homos should be put to death, along with adulterers and abortion providers.

Far-right Christian author and American Vision president Gary DeMar was the guest on the February 2 broadcast of Today’s Issues, a program of American Family Radio, a network of nearly 200 radio stations owned by the conservative American Family Association (AFA).

DeMar denounced “the continual assault on all things religion and, in particular, Christian,” and AFA president Tim Wildmon praised him as “one of the best writers out there in the Christian community and thinkers.” In the past, DeMar has advocated the installation of a theocratic government in the United States in which homosexuals, adulterers, and abortion doctors would be executed.

…DeMar is a leading promoter of an extremist theology called Christian Reconstructionism, also known as Theocratic Dominionism, which, according to journalist and author Frederick Clarkson, “argues that the Bible is to be the governing text for all areas of life — such as government, education, law, and the arts, not merely ‘social’ or ‘moral’ issues like pornography, homosexuality, and abortion.”

Americans United for Separation of Church and State documented, DeMar wrote in his book, Ruler of the Nations: Biblical Principles for Government (Dominion Press, 1987): “The law that requires the death penalty for homosexual acts effectually drives the perversion of homosexuality back into the closet.” DeMar added: “The long term goal [is] the execution of abortionists and parents who hire them. If we argue that abortion is murder, then we must call for the death penalty.”

American Vision‘s motto is “Equipping and Empowering Christians to Restore America’s Biblical Foundation.” And look at its mission…

Have you reached your “toleranceâ€? level for political correctness? Are you tired of being vilified by the press and Hollywood just because you are a Christian? Are you fed up with politicians who romance you for your vote and then ignore you until the next election cycle? We are. That’s why we invite you to join us in doing something about it.

What can we do together? Plenty. First, we must understand our nation’s past, identify today’s issues and problems, and look to the Bible to guide our future.

What’s truly frightening is that this guy is coming to the Tar Heel state this week. He will be featured at something called a God and Country Rally on Friday and Saturday (Feb 17-18) at Swansboro Middle School.

Remember, while the AFA beds down with people like DeMar, it is an organization on the warpath, trying to impose its Christofacist agenda on the marketplace by targeting these corporations recently, with mixed results:

* Mattel (American Girl Dolls)
* Ford
* Proctor & Gamble
* Kraft
* Disney
* Kodak
* Wal-mart
* Kroger
* Target
* Walgreens, Office Max, Lowes and Home Depot
* Rick Santorum
* Condoms
* Israel

And one has to ask, why would any corporation cave to an organization that believes in the unhinged filth of Gary DeMar and foments bigotry with outrageous positions like these:

* Were gays the real evil behind the Holocaust?
* Is Europe “infested” with Muslims who breed “faster than we do”?
* Are gays responsible for the “end of times”?
* Are gays a “public health” threat?
* Do Jews control Hollywood?
* Are gays diseased perverts who die early?
