Ted Cruz Demands Firing Scientists Who Claim People Are Born Gay

“Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, the Republican presidential candidate who believes that the gay “jihad” may soon lead to the imprisonment of pastors and the end of free speech, told a right-wing radio host on Wednesday that the legalization of same-sex marriage represents the greatest threat to religious liberty in the history of the United States.

““We are seeing today profound threats to religious liberty in America, I think the greatest threats we’ve ever seen,” Cruz told conservative author and talk radio host Eric Metaxas. Cruz also said that the fights over “religious freedom” laws in Arkansas and Indiana were “heartbreaking” examples of how the Democratic Party has “gotten so extreme and so radical in its devotion to mandatory gay marriage that they’ve decided there’s no room for the religious liberty protected under the First Amendment.”

“He added that while “Democrats joined with big business in vilifying an effort to protect our religious liberty,” too many Republican leaders and presidential candidates “ran and hid in the hills.” Cruz said: “We’re a nation that was founded by men and women who were fleeing religious oppression and coming to seek out a land where everyone of us could worship God Almighty with all of our hearts, minds and souls, and that is under profound jeopardy today.”

“The worst part is, this is just the beginning,” Cruz commented on the topic exclusively for Newslo. “Honest-to-God, normal, traditional Christians are on the verge of being extinct. I am proud to say that I am a member of the dying race, and I refuse to stand by and let the deviance and fornication prevail. What we need, what America and its people need, is decisive action and God’s righteous fury.”

He added: “If I win the presidency, one of the first things I plan to do is see to it that all the scientists who claim homosexuality is innate are out of a job. This has gone beyond a mere social problem – it’s a full scale epidemic and like all epidemics, what must be treated is the cause, not the consequence. If we change our perception of gays and same-sex marriage, we can finally begin the slow and painful road to recovery.”

Bill Koenig Suggests Relocating Gays Across The Nation To “Control Weather”

“If one conservative political reporter is to be believed, the devastating drought in California may have something to do with the state’s support of same-sex marriage and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights.

“One would imagine that anyone working for World Watch Daily, a “biblically relevant” news site that focuses on the White House, the Middle East and Israel, wouldn’t have the most open mind. It’s no surprise, then, that in an interview with Understanding the Times with Jan Markell, the site’s Bill Koenig suggests the Golden State’s ongoing, four-year drought is just one example of how America is living in an “unchartered” time and a period of divine “judgment” from God, Right Wing Watch first reported.

““We’ve got a state that, over and over again, will go against the word of God, that will continually take positions on marriage and abortion and on a lot of things that are just completely opposed to the Scriptures. Unfortunately, a lot of times when it starts in California, it spreads to the rest of the country and even spreads to the rest of the world,” he said. “So there very likely could be a drought component to this judgment.”

After his comments set the Internet on fire, Newslo reached out to Koenig exclusively and asked him to elaborate on his views. In an exclusive interview, he stated that “there must be some right in every wrong, and so too should we focus on the positive aspects of what is going on right now.”

He said: “What I mean is we need to think outside the box and try to use this to our advantage. Think about it – if I’m right and God is punishing the state of California with extreme droughts and fires because of its position on LGBT rights, then the most obvious solution would be to relocate gay people to areas that are suffering from severe floods and heavy rains. That way, we’d be killing two birds with one stone.”

Koenig also added: “Makes sense, right? That way, we’d be the closest we’ll ever get to controlling the weather, and consequentially, counteracting the effects of global warning, which, mind you, is caused by our bad daily habits in the first place.”

Congress to LGBT Community: “It Gets Better When You’re Voting Age… Maybe”

WASHINGTON – A statement from the House of Representatives this morning addressed young LGBT individuals around the country in a bizarre spin on Dan Savage’s widely embraced “It Gets Better” project.

“It Gets Better” has seen over 30,000 celebrities and civilians record messages, mostly on YouTube, telling gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender teenagers across the country that the bullying, intolerance, and bigotry often directed at them and their community will not always bring them down, and that, indeed, things will get better in time.

Congress seems to agree – sort of. “We hope that those members of the LGBT community who suffer at the hands of others in their youth because of their sexuality will hold on just a bit longer,” the House’s statement reads. “Your situation will get better once you’re out of high school, when you’re voting age and when you can help change this country with the voice of a political vote. Until you reach that age, though, there’s not a whole lot you can expect us to do.”

“Probably,” the House added, seemingly acknowledging the fact that most members of the LGBT community have never found full and undisputed equality in America, in everything from workplace rights to marriage rights, even after they turn 18.

“Yeah, it’ll probably get better,” the statement continues. “I mean, high school sucks for everyone, so once that’s done with, things are bound to improve no matter who you are.”

The It Gets Better Project has, since September 2010, targeted young members of the LGBT community after a wave of suicides among teenagers, many of whom were harassed for their sexual orientation. While statistics do not exist for the suicide rates of LGBT individuals around America – largely because death certificates do not state the sexual orientation of the deceased, and because there is no way of determining as of yet how many people in America are actually LGBT – recent studies estimate that gay teens are five times more likely to commit suicide than heterosexual teens.

Congress’ contribution to the It Gets Better Project seems to take a somewhat pessimistic approach to a positive message, acknowledging but refusing to solve the enormous problems facing members of the LGBT community of all ages.

The House’s statement continues: “Sure, you might not have the right to marry whomever you love, you might face discrimination in your office or on the street, and you might feel disenfranchised, unequal, and unprotected by your government for the rest of your life.

“But hey,” it concludes, “at least it’s not high school…right?”

Romney Alludes to Book Of Mormon, Nearly Gets Broadway Vote

NEW YORK – Gay actors and theatre lovers alike rejoiced this morning when Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was quoted as saying that his biggest inspiration in life was “absolutely, without question, the Book of Mormon.”

As the blogosphere and social media sites began to report the news, the gay community on Broadway reacted positively to Romney’s declaration of love for what they believed was the 9-time Tony Award-winning musical, “The Book of Mormon,” which has taken Broadway by storm since its debut in 2010.

Tony host and openly gay actor Neil Patrick Harris told Newslo, “I hate the guy’s politics, but I appreciate that he can have such respect for a great musical and our art form.” Harris admits that his decision in the November election may be “tougher than I thought.”

Cheyenne Jackson, another openly gay actor who received a Drama Desk nomination for his performance in “Xanadu” and has starred on the hit sitcom “30 Rock,” also expressed newfound support for the Republican nominee. “Sure, Obama ‘personally believes’ we should be allowed to marry, but when’s the last time you saw him on the Great White Way?” Jackson asked.

A plethora of other openly gay thespians have taken to social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to echo Jackson and Harris’ statements. Political commentators speculate that Romney’s remarks may mark a critical turning point in the election as he begins to establish a connection with the LGBT community, a demographic typically out of reach for conservatives.
