Why Does The American Family Association Hate Brandon Howse So Much?

Even though religious conservative Brannon Howse shares similar views on abortion and homosexuality as the anti-gay hate group the American Family Association, the AFA doesn’t want any mention of Howse on their radio station after he criticized the AFA for sponsoring Rick Perry’s presidential kickoff prayer rally, an event that featured adherents of the New Apostolic Reformation, a group of fundamentalists who believe in absolute theocracy and that the Democratic Party “is controlled by Jezebel and three lesser demons.”

So let us get this straight: Howes is apparently OK with calling gay people Satanic incestuous pedophiles, but thinking that demons run the executive branch… well, that’s just nuts!

The AFA sent e-mails to John Loeffler and Todd Friel—two friends and supporters of Howse who also happen to have shows on the AFA’s radio station—basically saying that if they ever mention him again, they’re off the air. Loeffler has basically quit, but no word on Friel.

We love it when the crazies begin excluding one another for not being crazy enough.

      Man, if only we could achieve a civilization based on compassion and the Golden Rule, and not on how much we hate one another based on our political ideologies. I’m beginning to believe that certain individuals—those on both sides of the political spectrum—thrive on the hatred of others and hating them right back. It just seems, sadly, that no one’s even trying.

      @Politically Incorrect Thug:

      What organization on the liberal end of the political spectrum even BEGINS to approach this sort of extreme ultralunacy?

      For example, is there any similarly popular organized progressive campaign to remove and bar Christians from public office? Is there any similarly popular organization of liberal churches that maintain in all seriousness that the Republican party is the instrument of Satan? Do they hold rallies where leading Democrats appear and endorse their message?

      You cannot criticize your political opposition, or soft-pedal the failures of your own political ideology by pretending mirror images exist in the opposition, when they factually do not.

      actually, john george, if you open up that bible you pretend to care about you’ll find that it says, rather explicitly, that the Sin of Sodom was greed. not sexual activity.

      there is not one mention of homosexuality in the story. Ezekiel 16 – the sin of sodom, greed. the people of sodom had food and resources and money and did not give to those without. basically, if you believe the story, you have to accept that God destroyed it for being a city of peopel who hoarded wealth.

      thus, Sodomites are actually the greedy people who refuse to share the wealth. AKA, the GOP 2011.

      congrats. you’re going to hell.
      :D

      but thanks for proving the rest of us right. your spelling is atrocious. ten bucks says you have a sixth-grade education and a truck full of Waco pamphlets.

      @john george:

      Uh huh this also means you agree with their bigotry intolerance and hate towards anyone who is gay? Do you happen to have GAY friends like hypocrites like you ALWAYS do? Or let me guess that hate the sin love the sinner bullshit again?

      Sodom and Gommorrah btw was never about homosexuality dumbass it was about pride and being inhospitable.

      Throughout the Old Testament, Sodom is held up as a lesson in wickedness that deserves utter destruction for reasons other than homosexual acts. Examples: Ezekiel 16:49 – 50, “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.” Isaiah tells of lack of justice. Jeremiah emphasizes moral and ethical laxity. The Deuterocanonical books identify the sin as pride and inhospitality; in Wisdom 19:13-14, we read “…whereas the men of Sodom received not the strangers when they came among them.” In Ecclesiasticus 16:8 the sin is recognized as pride: “He did not spare the people among whom Lot was living, whom he detested for their pride.” In the New Testament, too, there is reference to Sodom and inhospitality: In Luke 10:10-13, Christ talks about cities that are inhospitable to his disciples. He warns: “…it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.” It’s not until the very late books of 2 Peter (2:4) and Jude (6), that sex is considered a sin of Sodom. These books were written several generations after the deaths of the apostles and were talking about the transgression of the natural order of life when angelic and human beings have heterosexual relations – a major concern to the popular Stoic philosophy of the time.

      Not only are there no references to homosexual acts when Scripture refers to Sodom, there are no references to Sodom when the Scriptures refer to homosexuality. There are several biblical passages that some have misunderstood as condemning homosexual acts. Not one of these gives Sodom as an example of the result of homosexual behavior. Considering how often Sodom was used as an example of the result of wicked behavior, it’s apparent that biblical times did not see homosexual acts as the important lesson of the destruction of Sodom.

      QUEERT: “So let us get this straight: Howes is apparently OK with calling gay people Satanic incestuous pedophiles, but thinking that demons run the executive branch… well, that’s just nuts!”

      Hey, don’t be that hard on him – sometimes delusional people have to recover their sanity one delusion at a time. At least he’s moved in the right direction relative to his wackier peers.

      We can, of course, argue about what delusion he should lose first, but the hardest ones to lose are the ones that hit too close to home. You know, like the guy who thought he was being “recruited” because he’d get hard whenever a hot guy walked past him.

      jesus christ, the phobes are infiltrating our holy ground. Why are the gay haters comming onto this site to spill their vile? That’s why we have government.

      I think John George missed all those scriptures previously posted due to his frothy santorum causing those pages to stick together after a long night of bible humping.
