A Southern Pastor: What Does It Mean To Be The Church

A Southern Pastor: What Does It Mean To Be The Church

I write a Christian left blog. The site I write for is a far left, radically liberal site called Liberal America. It focuses especially on issues of the marginalized, poverty, corporate greed, bigotry, discrimination, and hypocrisy. It supports itself with Google ads, which often include ads for dating websites, Viagra, and other non-workplace-appropriate elements. Clicking […]

Loony Pastor Preaching Dominionism To Trump’s Cabinet (VIDEO)

It’s no secret that the great majority of religious right figures who rallied to Donald Trump rank among some of the most extreme elements in that movement. For instance, his spiritual adviser, Paula White, offered a staggeringly blasphemous invocation in which she prayed for this country to be “a true hope for mankind.” Frank Amedia, a […]

RWNJ Goes Full Anti-Semite, Blames ‘Jewish Organizations’ For ‘Perverting Our Culture’ (VIDEO)

It has been amply demonstrated that whenever the religious right says it only wants a place at the table for Americans with “traditional values,” it’s a sham. Whenever their leaders think they’re in unguarded moments where only their followers are listening, their true colors come out. One of the starkest examples of this came on Monday morning, […]

RWNJ Pastor Turns On Trump, Warns Jews May Make Him Start WWIII (TWEETS, AUDIO)

For most of the first months of the Donald Trump administration, the religious right has remained stoutly in the Donald’s corner. Even though many of the worst fears of both liberals and Republican never-Trumpers have come to pass, the religious right would have you believe that those fears are the result of witchcraft and demons. […]

RWNJ Ex-Chaplain To Katy Perry: You’re ‘Ruled By Satan’ (VIDEOS)

To a significant segment of the religious right, pop superstar Katy Perry is a traitor. For those who don’t know, Perry grew up in a very strict Pentecostal background; she only got turned on to secular music when her friends slipped it into her house. It’s part of the reason why a lot of fundie heads […]

So-Called Prophet: Orange Calf’s Agenda Is God’s Agenda, ‘Corrupt’ Opponents Must Be Removed (VIDEOS)

The religious right has made it loud and clear–if you oppose Donald Trump, you risk incurring the wrath of God. After all, to hear America’s so-called moral guardians talk, those who raise their voices against the Donald are being influenced by witchcraft and demons to oppose God’s plan for America. Moreover, the religious right would […]

New Fundie Scare Tactic: Your Families Will Be Cursed If You Oppose Trump (VIDEOS)

The religious right has spent the last three months trying to bully those opposing Donald Trump into silence. They’ve told us that the opposition to Trump is driven by witchcraft being spread by the media, as well as demons. To hear them talk, the opposition to Trump is being driven by the devil himself, and […]

Jerry Falwell’s Law Firm Is In Trouble For Covering Up A Kidnapping (VIDEO)

It’s been amply established that the religious right has abdicated any claim to being the self-declared moral guardians of the nation by its continued support of Donald Trump. After all, they are willing to not only condone Trump’s outrages, but try to bludgeon his critics into silence simply because he has made the right clucking […]

RWNJ Black Pastor: You ‘Hate God’ If You Don’t Want Prayer In School (AUDIO, VIDEO)

The religious right has used a very simple formula to get ahead over the years. By hyping up social issues like abortion and gay rights, they wedged away white voters–especially in the South–who would otherwise have no business voting Republican. For some time, they’ve tried to use that same formula to make inroads among black […]

RWNJ Pastor Warns Trump Foes: ‘You Smack Him, And God Smacks You Back’

For the better part of the last two months, the religious right has been warning opponents of Donald Trump that they are treading on dangerous ground. To hear some of that movement’s so-called leaders talk, the resistance to Trump’s so-called presidency is driven by witchcraft and demons, and anyone who dares oppose him is opposing […]

Dominionists Ready To Pounce With Sleeper ‘Ninja Sheep’ (VIDEOS, AUDIO)

Donald Trump owed a yuuuuge political debt to the religious right. After all, they stayed loyal to him after the “Access Hollywood” tapes broke. He paid that debt bigly by giving the religious right so much say in picking personnel for his new administration that a number of old culture warriors were openly salivating at […]

RWNJ Evangelist Prays For God To ‘Sweep Away’ Abortion And Pro-Choice Judges (VIDEOS)

For years, the religious right has talked about building a “culture of life” in this country–one in which abortion is a thing of the past. We already know how far they’re willing to go. By standing behind Donald Trump even in the face of his outrageously degrading comments about women, the religious right announced in […]

RWNJ Pastor: Join Me In Prayer For God To ‘Turn The Tables’ On Trump’s Foes (VIDEO)

The religious right would have you believe that all the opposition to Donald Trump isn’t driven by his blatant lying and his open war with the media. Nope, it’s being driven by witchcraft and demonic forces. For the better part of the last two months, leading fundies have spoken in code to warn any evangelicals […]

RWNJ ‘Prophet’ Goes Anti-Semitic, Says Christians Should Get Rich To Make Jews ‘Jealous’ (VIDEOS)

The religious right would like you to believe that all it wants is to give social conservatives a place at the table. But as any religious right watcher will tell you, that gets exposed as a transparent lie whenever a religious right leader thinks no outsiders are listening. Well, the folks at People for the American Way’s […]

If you’re taking part in the resistance to Donald Trump, don’t be surprised if you see people standing nearby on the streets with their hands stretched out in your direction.

Pat Robertson: If You Oppose The Prince Of Lies, You Oppose ‘God’s Plan For America’ (VIDEO)

I’ve seen some bizarre and incomprehensible things from the religious right over the years. And yet, the religious right’s continued backing of Donald Trump even in the face of the “Access Hollywood” tapes was mind-blowing, even by those standards. How in the world could people who bleat and screet about traditional values all the time […]

Christofascist Host: Protests Against Trump Are ‘Satanic’ And ‘Breaking God’s Laws’ (AUDIO)

Christofascist Host: Protests Against Trump Are ‘Satanic’ And ‘Breaking God’s Laws’ (AUDIO)

For the longest time, I wondered how the religious right could have possibly stood by Donald Trump after the “Access Hollywood” tapes broke. I knew that abortion and marriage equality were BFDs for this crowd. But I didn’t think abortion and gay rights mattered so much that they were willing to overlook the fact that […]

Jim Bakker: If You Don’t Like Trump, You Must Be Demon Possessed (VIDEO)

It’s no secret that the religious right has sold its soul to Donald Trump. But we got a lovely idea of just how loyal they are to the Donald in the aftermath of the Women’s March. They seem to think that if you stand against him, you’re only doing so because you’re influenced by the […]

Insane RWNJ Pastor Says Satan Organizing Opposition To Trump (VIDEO)

It came as no surprise that the religious right was none too pleased at the Women’s March. But the reasons that a number of fundie luminaries denounced it were staggering, even by religious right standards. Depending on who you watch, it was either influenced by witchcraft or driven by demonic influence. So if you stand […]

Jim Bakker And Friends Think 3 Million Women Were Influenced By Demons

Jim Bakker And Friends Think 3 Million Women Were Influenced By Demons

It should come as no surprise that the religious right was not too pleased with the Women’s March on Washington, and its sister marches around the nation. After all, they managed to convince most of their followers that such little things like respect for women don’t matter as much as ending abortion and rolling back […]
