MN State Rep Ducks Question About Tax Haven Bill Because Jesus (VIDEO/TWEETS)

Like most left-leaning evangelical Christians, I believe that Christians in public office should be setting the standard, not trying to do an end run around it. Sadly, a state representative in Minnesota is the latest to think that her faith gives her license to avoid being accountable for her votes. Abigail Whelan represents District 35A […]

By any standard, Donald Trump’s presidency is tanking. As of Tuesday night, FiveThirtyEight pegs his average approval rating at 39.1 percent. Even at this stage, when a president with approval ratings that low, it’s time to call a code. Moreover, the furor over the firing of James Comey and the questions about his campaign’s links to […]

Among the religious right leaders who are still bowing to Donald Trump, Rick Joyner is in a class by himself. He was one of the first prominent fundies to warn against opposing Trump. Initially, he tried to explain that those raising their voices against the Donald were driven by witchcraft and the devil himself. He has since warned […]

As of Saturday afternoon, Donald Trump’s average approval rating, as computed by FiveThirtyEight, stands at 38.8 percent–the lowest on record for a president at this stage in his administration. But the only reason it’s even that high is because the religious right continues to bow before him. Polls show that anywhere from 73 to 78 […]

Most of us know that the firing of FBI Director James Comey has turned into an unmitigated disaster for Donald Trump. After all, we now have solid confirmation that the stated reason for his firing–the manner in which he handled the Hillary Clinton email probe–is false. If that wasn’t enough, this week word got out that […]

For years, whenever we have thought about black conservatives getting diarrhea of the mouth, the first people to come to mind have usually been Ben Carson and Allen West. But in recent weeks, another prominent black conservative may be giving Carson and West a run for their money–Jesse Lee Peterson. To hear him talk, Bill O’Reilly […]

Meet The Nutjob Evangelicals Who Still Worship Trump

As of Monday night, Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight pegs Donald Trump’s average approval rating at 42 percent. Even at this early stage, any elected official with approval ratings that bad would be in very serious danger. But in all likelihood, the only reason Trump is doing that well is because of the religious right. Trump […]

As we know by now, the only reason Donald Trump’s presidency hasn’t completely cratered is that the religious right seems to be blindly loyal to him. While Trump struggles to get out of the 40s when the nation as a whole is asked if they approve of his job performance, white evangelicals apparently think he […]

On Thursday morning, we got a badly-needed dose of potentially good news in a news cycle that hasn’t seen much good news lately. Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” are engaged. Scarborough proposed to Brzezinski at a scenic hotel in Antibes, while they were celebrating Brzezinski’s 50th birthday. Brzezinski inadvertently announced the engagement […]

Depending on the source, anywhere from 73 to 78 percent of white evangelicals approve of how Donald Trump is doing in office. In contrast, Trump struggles to get out of the 40s in most national job approval polls. So how can fundies essentially think Trump walks on water, while the nation as a whole thinks […]

By reality-based standards, Donald Trump’s presidency is very close to the rocks. According to Nate Silver’s model of approval poll averages, Trump only has an approval rating of 42.4 percent as of Wednesday night. Even at this early stage, this would be code-calling territory for any politician. But those approval ratings would be even lower […]

Jim Bakker And Friends: Trump Protesters Are Taking Direction From Jihadists And Satan (VIDEO)

It’s more or less an article of faith among Donald Trump’s diehard supporters that the massive protests can’t possibly be real. Supposedly, someone is paying them to get on the streets and oppose Trump’s drive to make America great again. The latest Trump diehard to take up this cry is one of Trump’s staunchest fundie […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
