Calling BS On Fundie Claims God Hacked The Election For Teflon Don

Calling BS On Fundie Claims God Hacked The Election For Teflon Don

It is now amply established that Donald Trump’s surprise election victory was tainted in part by ham-handed interference from Russia–a campaign that, by all accounts, was ordered by Vladimir Putin himself. But that’s not what the religious right would have you believe. Ever since Trump’s upset victory, they’ve insisted to anyone who would listen that […]

Fundie Leaders: We’re ‘Pinching Ourselves’ At Influence We’ll Have In Trump White House (AUDIO)

In the back of my mind, I suspected that Donald Trump was going to owe the religious right big in the wake of his upset election win. After all, he only survived the release of the “Access Hollywood” tapes because the religious right managed to convince its followers that respect for women wasn’t as important as […]

The Case For Why Trump And Pence Must Stand Down Before Inauguration Day (VIDEO, TWEETS)

What little legitimacy Donald Trump and Mike Pence may have had should have evaporated in the space of a few hours on Thursday. First, word got out that a number of top American intelligence officials had warned their Israeli counterparts not to share any classified information with Trump unless they got assurances Trump had not been compromised […]

Was That A Donald Trump Press Conference Or A Theater Of The Absurd Performance?

WTF was that?! If you watched the so-called “press conference” Donald Trump held today, then you may feel as if you just emerged from a surreal landscape where nothing is as it seems. Salvador Dali would be damn proud. It began with the warm-up acts: Sean Spicer and Mike Pence. Why were they called on […]

Resort Owner Sued For Allegedly Asking Black Chef To Cook ‘Black People Food’ (VIDEO)

Food typically associated with Black culture is pretty dang delicious. Fried chicken, cornbread, collard greens: it’s good stuff. But if you were to ask your chef to cook those dishes, and your chef happened to be Black, you might want to be a little delicate with how you make that request, right? Madeleine Pickens​​, the Caucasian ex-wife of […]

Fundie Host: If You Oppose Displaying The Ten Commandments, You’re A ‘Traitor’ (VIDEO, TWEET)

When the cameras are on, the religious right would like you to believe that all it wants is to be a voice for Americans who hold traditional Judeo-Christian values. But as I’ve mentioned a number of times, whenever the likes of Pat Robertson, Ralph Reed, and Franklin Graham think they’re only preaching to the choir, […]

RWNJ Couldn’t Get Ohio To Enact ‘Heartbeat Bill,’ But Wants Take Her Lunacy National (VIDEO, AUDIO)

Late last year, the Ohio legislature passed one of the most extreme anti-abortion bills in the nation. It would have banned all abortions in Ohio from the point a heartbeat could be detected. The bill’s passage was a victory for veteran religious right activist Janet Porter, who had spent the last five years trying to […]

A Southern Pastor: When Christmas Is Blue

A Southern Pastor: When Christmas Is Blue

Today, on Christmas Eve, as I go about preparing for Candlelight Service tonight, looking forward to a gathering with my family tomorrow, and enjoying quiet time with my son, I can’t seem to fight back the tears. It isn’t that I am unhappy; I am just sad. I know that sounds ridiculous, but many of […]

Franklin Graham Shows Up For Trump After He Says ‘God Showed Up’ In Election (TWEET)

You may recall that last week, Franklin Graham asked whether it was possible that God, not Russia, had hacked the presidential election in Donald Trump’s favor.

A Southern Pastor: Anything But A Silent Night

“Silent night, Holy night, all is calm, all is bright…” We all know the words. Even if you aren’t a Christian, you can sing the song. For most, it’s the Christmas-card-perfect ideal of what Christmas is and means. Advent includes the four Sundays leading up to Christmas. It is a time of expectation and anticipation, […]

Nut Job Franklin Graham Wonders Who Really Hacked The Election (TWEET)

It’s no secret that Franklin Graham is using and abusing the legacy of his father, Billy Graham, to become a water-carrier for the religious right. That was true long before the election. During the campaign, there was virtually no difference between him and veteran religious right nut jobs like Pat Robertson, James Dobson, Tony Perkins, […]

Stop Everything Right Now And Listen To ‘We Are The World’ Again

Stop Everything Right Now And Listen To ‘We Are The World’ Again

This morning, my boyfriend and I had one of those “wait, how did we end up here” moments. Working side by side writing, as we do every day, we were talking about politics and our despair over Trump’s cabinet picks. And that conversation led to something else, and then I don’t remember what, and neither […]

Fundies Worship Trump: Putting Money Above Jesus Is The ‘Right’ Thing To Do

Fundies Worship Trump: Putting Money Above Jesus Is The ‘Right’ Thing To Do

The most infuriating aspect of the presidential election is how the religious right managed to persuade 81 percent of white evangelicals to ignore Donald Trump’s blatant misogyny, mocking of the disabled, and condoning of violence. For most of the last month, we’ve thought the explanation for this mind-blowing worship of the Donald was easy. The […]

Christofascists Putting Their Stamp On Trump’s Immigration Policy (AUDIO, VIDEOS)

As we all know by now, if the religious right had put its money where its mouth was after the release of the “Access Hollywood” tapes, Donald Trump’s candidacy would have gone down in flames. Instead, they persuaded over 81 percent of white evangelicals to break for Trump. Now, it looks like the religious right […]

As if scientists across the country could be heard in a collective sigh when President-elect Donald Trump appointed climate denier Scott Pruitt as head of the EPA, Leonardo DiCaprio quickly swooped in and, joined by the CEO of his foundation, met with Trump at Trump Towers.

In a massive turn of events, it was reported a short time ago that the Dakota Access Pipeline will NOT be allowed to continue construction on Standing Rock Reservation, by order of The Army Corp Of Engineers.

A Southern Pastor: So What Is Advent, And Why Should I Care?

Advent is not Christmas, and the 12 Days of Christmas are not December 13th to the 25th. Here are the basics you need to know to understand and participate in Advent: 1. The idea of a season of Advent probably started in the late 4th century, as we have several sermons from that period which […]

RWNJ Pastor: ‘God Must Discipline’ America For Allowing Immigrants ‘Who Have No Respect’ For Him (AUDIO)

RWNJ Pastor: ‘God Must Discipline’ America For Allowing Immigrants ‘Who Have No Respect’ For Him (AUDIO)

When a killing spree happens in this country, we’ve come to expect a nut job pastor to claim that it’s a warning from God. Sadly, Tuesday’s knife attack at Ohio State proved to be no different. Less than 24 hours after a student slashed and wounded 10 people before being shot and killed by police, […]
