Religious Right Radio Host: Obama Was Under ‘Communist Influence’ And Couldn’t Have Been A Scout (AUDIO)

In the wake of Donald Trump’s bizarre and unhinged speech to the 2017 Boy Scout Jamboree, a number of observers have drawn sharp contrasts with Barack Obama’s scouting history. While Trump never spent a day in scouting, Obama spent part of his childhood in Indonesia as the equivalent of a Cub Scout. But a prominent […]

Earlier this week, Public Policy Polling released a new national poll that revealed the stark gulf between diehard supporters of Donald Trump and the country at large.

As of Thursday night, Donald Trump’s approval rating stands at 39.3 percent. As anemic as that looks, it would be even worse if not for the support of the religious right.

RWNJ Pastor Says America Is Led By ‘Satanists,’ But Praises Russia For ‘Morality’ (AUDIO)

In case you missed it, the only reason Donald Trump’s head is still above water is that over 70 percent of white evangelicals still back him, even in the face of the nearly daily outrages coming from the White House. It’s partly because they listen to people like Rick Wiles of TruNews. Wiles is so […]

When word got out that a hardcore Bernie Sanders supporter turned a Republican baseball team practice in Alexandria, Virginia into a shooting gallery, a number of Republicans wasted no time pointing fingers. Newt Gingrich blamed potty-mouthed Democrats, while Donald Trump, Jr.–undoubtedly speaking for his father–blamed a version of “Julius Caesar” with a man who looked a […]

When you listen to religious right radio shows and podcasts, you expect to hear outrageous and jaw-dropping commentary. But what Dave Daubenmire did on his daily podcast, “Pass the Salt,” is staggering even by those standards. In case you missed it, his guest that day, fellow religious right podcast host Sheila Zilinsky, called for California […]

A Southern Pastor: Just Keep Blessing The Biscuits

March in Arkansas can go either way: still below freezing and snowing, or already 80 degrees and humid. Driving down the two lane highway on the edge of the Ouachita Forest that March day was exactly what it should be: 68 degrees and sunny. So I rolled the window down on the 2005 Ford Taurus […]

A number of Republicans, especially those aligned with the religious right, held their noses and voted for Donald Trump, despite his many outrages, for only one reason–a chance to maintain the conservative majority on the Supreme Court. The Republicans in the Senate even went as far as to throw a year-long tantrum to keep President […]

It should come as no surprise that James Comey’s devastating testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee resulted in a lot of verbal vomit and cybervomit from the right. Prominent right-wingers openly questioned Comey’s manhood on the air and on Twitter. For instance, Laura Ingraham mocked Comey’s account of how everyone was ushered out of the room […]

RWNJ Pastor Thinks Ariana Grande Is As Bad As Terrorists (VIDEO)

It was only a matter of time before a religious right pastor got a case of diarrhea of the mouth over the horrific bomb attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. It initially appeared that Jim Bakker was the first to oblige earlier this week, when he suggested that the bombing victims brought their […]

Lance Wallnau Calling On God To Strike Down Trump Foes (VIDEO)

When the Senate Intelligence Committee released James Comey’s written testimony on Wednesday night, it was clear that Donald Trump was in a lot of trouble. After all, there aren’t many good-faith reasons for why Trump would have asked everyone on hand for a counterterrorism briefing to leave the room before telling Comey that he hoped he could […]

It’s been clear for some time that the religious right is losing the battle for the young–bigly. A 2014 study by the Brookings Institution revealed that the religious right is speaking mostly to an audience in their 50s and older. More importantly, the great majority of Generation Xers and millennials who identify as religious tilt […]

Jim Bakker is one of the worst people in the world. That has been apparent for some time. After all, the man who was once the poster child for televangelist excess has reinvented himself as perhaps the loudest cheerleader on the religious right for Donald Trump. In case you missed it, Bakker claims that those […]

Jim Bakker Issues A Fatwa–Christianists Will Start Civil War If Trump Is Impeached (VIDEO)

If there had been a dictionary entry for “televangelist excess” in the 1980s, Jim Bakker’s picture would be there. But since crashing, burning, and spending time in prison, Bakker has found a new calling–hard, hard right politics. He has emerged as one of the loudest fundie cheerleaders for Donald Trump, and has also fallen all […]

End Times Rabbi Says God Hacked Election To Punish Obama (VIDEOS, AUDIO)

For some time, the religious right has been among the loudest voices warning us against claiming that Russia hacked the election for Donald Trump. Their explanation? The Kremlin didn’t hack the election–God did. To hear them talk, God was so determined to end abortion and marriage equality that he cast the only vote that really […]

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 […]

RWNJ Pastor Warns Us That God Won’t Allow ‘Sabotage’ Of Trump (VIDEO)

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 […]

RWNJ Pastor Wants Martial Law Declared If People DARE To Impeach Trump (VIDEO)

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 […]
