Theresa Cao: Birther, Teabagger, Christianist, Complete Raving Loon

Earlier today, Theresa Cao was arrested in the gallery of the U.S. House for screaming, “Except for Obama! Except for Obama! Help us Jesus!” after the portion of the Constitution stipulating natural-born citizenship for the U.S. presidency was read. Over at Holy Bullies, Alvin McEwen has dug up this video taken of Cao at last year’s Faith2Action May Day event in DC, which called upon God to strike down our evil socialist Kenyan leader. From the clip’s description:

Conspiracy believing self-proclaimed Christian and Tea Party advocate, Theresa Salcedo Cao, proselytizing at the White House, proclaims Barack Obama a puppet of the secretive New World Order. She then addresses the faithful at a Christian Fundamentalist May Day 2010 Prayer Meeting at the Lincoln Memorial. Paul Blair, from Reclaiming America for Christ, holds the microphone while Theresa blows a Shofar. Next up is Janet Porter from Faith2Action, who reportedly believes in Dominion Theology, a theology that believes that society should be governed exclusively by the law of God as codified in the Bible, to the exclusion of secular law. The final moments of the film show people praying over the body of Theresa who collapsed from trance dancing to Christian Rock and Roll. The camera stops abruptly when prayer fails to revive her and the search begins for immediate medical help

Enjoy the crack-a-doodle crazy! That Ms. Cao in the angel wings.

Anti-Gay Christianist Groups Vow To Force Congress To Reverse Repeal Of DADT

Led by the Liberty Counsel, a coalition of anti-gay Christianist hate groups today signed on to a letter vowing to force the next Congress to reverse today’s repeal of DADT. Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver rants:

“This action will be overturned in the next Congress because it breaks the bond of trust that must exist between the military and those who command in the Pentagon and Congress. Today’s vote will prove as costly to its proponents as ObamaCare was to its advocates. We promise a full mobilization of faith-based and policy organizations, veterans, and military families in the states of every Senator who voted for repeal of DADT against the advice of our service chiefs and during a time of war. Those Senators – and the Pentagon leaders responsible for this breach of trust – should understand that they will be the object of concerted political action against them.”

Among the groups signing the letter:

National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Teen Mania Ministries, American Association of Christian Counselors, Let Freedom Ring, Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, American Family Association, Family Research Council; Liberty Counsel, Liberty Alliance Action, Vision America, The Oak Initiative, The Call to Action, Concerned Women for America, High Impact Leadership Coalition, Campaign for Working Families, Conservative Action Project, Traditional Values Coalition, Renewing American Leadership, Conservative HQ, Constitution Party, Bott Radio Network, Center for Military Readiness.

California County Appeals Prop 8 Ruling With Backing Of Christianist Group

Imperial County, in far southern California, has filed an appeal of Judge Vaughn Walker’s overturn of Proposition 8, thanks the help of an anti-gay Christianist legal group. But do they have standing to do so?

The County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 earlier in the day to approve the appeal, according to the Imperial Valley Press. Close to 70% of Imperial County voters approved Prop. 8, which enshrined a definition of marriage as between one man and one woman in the state Constitution. Attorneys for official backers of Prop. 8, ProtectMarriage, have appealed the ruling. Walker last week denied Imperial County’s effort to intervene in the case, saying the county lacked sufficient interests in the matter to do so. The county, represented by the Christian legal group Advocates for Faith and Freedom, pledged to appeal that denial. Separately on Tuesday, the county filed an appeal challenging Walker’s core ruling on Prop. 8’s constitutionality. “The personal opinion of a single judge in San Francisco should not be substituted for the opinion of over 7 million voters,” Advocates for Faith and Freedom General Counsel Robert Tyler said in a statement. The appellate court will determine whether Imperial County has a right to move forward with its appeal.
