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)

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 […]

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 […]

Nut Job Pastor Jim Bakker: ‘All Hell’ Is Against Trump Because He Stands For ‘Righteousness’ (VIDEO)

Fresh off persuading a staggering 81 percent of white evangelicals to vote for Donald Trump, the nut jobs on the religious right are already priming their followers to follow him like lemmings over the cliff. The latest evidence of this comes from one of the nuttiest preachers of them all, Jim Bakker. He has his flock […]

WTF?! Christianists Prayed A Journalist Would Die From A Twitter-Induced Seizure (TWEETS)

WTF?! Christianists Prayed A Journalist Would Die From A Twitter-Induced Seizure (TWEETS)

One of the most appalling moments in a campaign season full of them came two weeks ago. Newsweek reporter Kurt Eichenwald, suffered a seizure after a pro-Trump troll sent him a GIF with flashing strobe lights on Twitter. Eichenwald didn’t take this lying down, and vowed to bring the deplorable who did this to him 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)

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. It was a question that he himself had answered on the morning after Trump’s shocking victory, when he declared that it was nothing less than divine intervention. This latest tweet […]

A Southern Pastor: Anything But A Silent Night

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)

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, […]

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 […]

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

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, […]

Jim Bakker: Counties Who Voted For Hillary Will Pay For Opposing ‘The Will Of God’ (VIDEO)

Jim Bakker: Counties Who Voted For Hillary Will Pay For Opposing ‘The Will Of God’ (VIDEO)

It’s been amply established that Jim Bakker is even worse than he was during his salad days at PTL. After all, this is a guy who thinks there are radical Muslims embedded in our churches, thinks Christians today have it as bad as Nazi-era Jews, and claims Planned Parenthood is a front for devil worship. Well, […]

My Fellow Christians, We Have To Stand – Seek Justice, Love, Mercy

My Fellow Christians, We Have To Stand – Seek Justice, Love, Mercy

I’m back!! It’s been a while since I have written, but in light of the recent election, I felt that it was time to come back and write. Things need to be said, and we all need to be diligent, in light of certain things. For instance, there are supporters of Donald Trump calling for […]

An Open Letter To One Of Trump’s Enablers On The Religious Right, Franklin Graham (VIDEO)

Dear Mr. Graham: You will notice that I didn’t call you “Reverend.” That was intentional. You don’t deserve that title after the way you and the rest of the religious right made it clear that you were so determined to push your agenda through that you were willing to support a man who is the […]

Religious Right ‘Trumpvangelicals’ May ‘Pay The Price’ For Helping Trump Win (VIDEO)

Religious Right ‘Trumpvangelicals’ May ‘Pay The Price’ For Helping Trump Win (VIDEO)

It should surprise no one that after going all-in for Donald Trump, the religious right is positively giddy about Trump’s shocking victory on Election Night. But there’s a good chance that social conservatives may wind up paying a very stiff price in the long run for their role in powering the Donald to victory. A […]

Religious Right Silence On Trump’s Final Ad Is Deafening–And Telling (AUDIO)

Religious Right Silence On Trump’s Final Ad Is Deafening–And Telling (AUDIO)

In case you missed it, Donald Trump released his final ad this weekend. In so doing, Trump ended his campaign in the same way he started it–with an appeal to hate and bigotry of the worst type. The ad was shot through with anti-Semitic dog whistles, set to the soundtrack of Trump’s blatantly anti-Semitic speech […]
