Jerry Falwell Jr. Tries To Convince Us Trump Is ‘Authentic’ (TWEETS)

For the better part of two years, the religious right has tried to peddle a false narrative about Donald Trump.

Most longtime watchers of the religious right, including this writer, have known for some time that when push comes to shove, the religious right is morally bankrupt.

President Donald Trump has had a rough go with his statements regarding Charlottesville – first, he took too long to denounce Nazis, which we all thought was the baseline “easy mode” for Presidents.

Trump Gives First Commencement Address As President…And It’s Horrifying (VIDEO)

President Donald Trump gave his first commencement speech as president this week at Liberty University. Some of it was actually sane.

Trump To Give Commencement Speech At Anti-Gay Liberty University (VIDEO)

Many have questioned President Donald Trump’s coziness with the Evangelical right. It seems very much a marriage of convenience.

Jerry Falwell’s Law Firm Is In Trouble For Covering Up A Kidnapping (VIDEO)

It’s been amply established that the religious right has abdicated any claim to being the self-declared moral guardians of the nation by its continued support of Donald Trump.

Kim Davis’ Attorney: You’re ‘Brainwashed’ If You Think Marriage Equality Is Law (WITH VIDEO)

As it has become more apparent that the religious right is getting boatraced in the battle for marriage equality, the culture warriors’ argument has boiled down to two points. First, Obergefell v. Hodges isn’t legitimate because the Supreme Court can’t make law. Second, those fighting against marriage equality are taking up the same mantle as civil rights […]
