Archbishop of Canterbury Clueless To Why Christians Back Trump

The Archbishop of Canterbury is one of the most powerful and important appointees in the Church of England.

Evangelicals Feel Persecuted Because They Have To Treat People Equally

Unfortunately, many minority groups in this country experience persecution on a daily basis. Also, one majority group thinks they are being persecuted constantly when they aren’t. That would be right-wing Evangelical Christians. A recent Pew survey found that Evangelicals actually think they are persecuted more than Black people, Jewish people, Atheists, and other minority groups. […]

WATCH Joy Reid Totally Stump A Trump-Supporting Minister With One Simple Question

It’s a question we may never find an answer to: Why do people of faith, including ministers, support a man as completely immoral and thoroughly vile as President Trump?

Pastor Saw Something ‘Terribly Powerful’ At Trump Rally–And It Wasn’t Pretty (VIDEO)

As a left-leaning evangelical Christian, one of the most disheartening anecdotes of the election was the discovery that a whopping 81 percent of white evangelicals voted for Donald Trump. To most of them, Trump’s outrageous behavior on the campaign trail didn’t matter. All that mattered was that he made the right clucking noises about ending […]

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.

How The Christian Right Was Duped By Conservative Preachers (VIDEO)

How The Christian Right Was Duped By Conservative Preachers (VIDEO)

For as long as I can remember, Evangelical Christians have voted as a big, cohesive bloc. They have always, in my memory, voted in an unshakably conservative lump. The Christian right, for most of us, is a uniform group that opposes abortion, supports gun rights, stands firmly against marriage equality. They vote Republican. They always have. […]

There Are A Lot Of Born-Again Women Who Are Closet Hillary Supporters (TWEETS)

For much of the campaign, there was talk that Donald Trump’s support was a lot greater than it seemed because of a large number of closet Trump supporters–a bloc of support for the Donald that isn’t showing up in most polls. That seems hard to believe. After all, you would have thought that those secret Trump […]

White Evangelicals Totally Break Their Brains To Vote Trump (VIDEO)

According to a new survey, white evangelical Protestants are now more willing to overlook moral shortcomings in their politicians.

Nutjob Pastor: Why I Believe Trump Is The Prophesied President (VIDEO)`

Oh, Holy Craziness. Here we go again. Yet another Evangelical nutburger has come along to say that Republican presidential nominee and famed sexual predator Donald Trump has been chosen by God Himself.

Rank And File Evangelicals Once Ran From The Donald, But Are Running To Him

It’s no secret that a large segment of the religious right has gotten on the Donald Trump train. But what about garden-variety evangelicals?

Republicans Claim To Be The Christians’ Party But Church Leaders Tend To Support Hillary (VIDEO)

Much of politics is marketing. Creating a political atmosphere where people can instantly identify a party based on individual issues. For Democrats, their past decade of work has helped them become the voice for minorities, LGBT members, women, labor rights, and immigrants. While Democrats have dominated these particular sectors of society, Republicans have clung to white […]

Even in the pantheon of crazy stuff that people try to believe in order to justify their actions and who they support politically, this may just be the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever heard.
