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)

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 […]

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

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 […]

Christian Left Blogger SLAMS Fundie ‘Leaders’ For Bowing Before The Orange Calf

One of the most disheartening anecdotes of the presidential election was how the religious right remained loyal to Donald Trump even in the face of his many outrages on the trail–particularly the “Access Hollywood” tapes. They managed to convince a whopping 81 percent of white evangelicals to vote for Trump. After all, to the minds […]

A Southern Pastor: #JesusCallsUs (VIDEO)

A Southern Pastor: #JesusCallsUs (VIDEO)

It just seemed as if my own words weren’t enough. Exodus 18:21 21 You should also look for able men among all the people, men who fear God, are trustworthy, and hate dishonest gain; set such men over them as officers over thousands, hundreds, fifties, and tens. Psalm 72:12-14 12 For he delivers the needy […]

A Southern Pastor: #WeAreMuslim (VIDEO)

I have tried to write this article for two weeks. It feels as if I should be saying something, doing something, sharing something, anything. But every time I sit down to type, every scripture I decide to write about, every story about Jesus and his call for justice and mercy and love, just freezes my […]

Fundies Claim 3 Million Women Possessed By ‘Spirit Of Witchcraft’ (VIDEOS)

If anything brightened up the weekend of Donald Trump’s inauguration, it was the many images we saw from the Women’s March on Washington, as well as sister marches around the world. From the planeloads of nasty women converging on the capital to the crowds that dwarfed those at the inauguration–reportedly much to Trump’s outrage–it was nothing […]

One of the most disheartening anecdotes from the presidential election was how the religious right flocked to Trump. What passes for leadership in that movement managed to convince 81 percent of white evangelicals that Trump’s ugly behavior on the campaign trail didn’t matter because he made the right clucking noises on abortion and marriage equality. […]

This Pastor Offered An Inaugural Prayer As Scary As Trump’s Speech (VIDEO)

By now, most of you may have read about Donald Trump’s spine-chilling inauguration speech. But that wasn’t the first scary speech on Friday. Nope, not by a longshot. For veteran religious right watchers like yours truly, one of the invocations was at least, if not more, unnerving than Trump’s dystopian speech. When Paula White was […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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. 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

“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, […]
