The right wing fringe would like you to believe that Barack Obama was a monstrous dictator.

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 […]

Fundie Host Bryan Fischer: Christians Can’t Have ‘Diverse Opinions’ (WITH VIDEO)

If you’ve known me for any period of time, you’ll know that one of the fastest ways to get my dander up is to tell me that I can’t be a Christian and a liberal. So you can probably imagine that it took me awhile to calm down when one of the looniest religious right talk […]

Christian Right Voices Pan New Version Of ‘The Muppets’

Last night, ABC premiered the latest incarnation of “The Muppets.” It’s billed as somewhat edgier than the original version of “The Muppet Show.” That doesn’t sit very well with two prominent Christian right voices, the American Family Association and Franklin Graham.
