Delusional: So-Called Christians Blame ‘Communist’ Liberals For Texas Church Shooting (VIDEOS)

Delusional: So-Called Christians Blame ‘Communist’ Liberals For Texas Church Shooting (VIDEOS)

When a national tragedy happens, a lot of things have become as certain as death and taxes. Sadly, one of those things is the religious right trying to blame tragedies on something liberals have done to erode traditional values. It initially looked like the Texas church shooting would be an exception. Well, that hope was […]

Fundie Hosts Go There, Say God Turned Houston Into A Lake Because Of Abortion And Gays (AUDIO/VIDEO)

Fundie Hosts Go There, Say God Turned Houston Into A Lake Because Of Abortion And Gays (AUDIO/VIDEO)

These days, one of the sure things when a disaster strikes is that religious right leaders will open their mouths, stick in their feet, and jam them in deep. Hurricane Harvey was no exception. On Monday, for instance, forced-birth activist Abby Johnson danced a jig when the back end of Harvey downed a tree in […]

RWNJ Pastor: Trump Has ‘Divine Purpose,’ And Anyone Who Opposes Him Will Fail (TWEET/VIDEO)

No matter how he tries to convince himself–and us–Donald Trump is not winning. Not by a longshot. As of Friday night, FiveThirtyEight pegs his average approval rating at 36.9 percent, the lowest on record for a newly-elected president at this stage. More importantly for Trump’s long-term prospects–and those of the GOP–there isn’t much room for […]

Trump-Worshiping Pastor Comes Against ‘Demonic Spirits’ Attacking White House (AUDIO)

As of Thursday night, Donald Trump’s average approval rating, as calculated by FiveThirtyEight, is 37 percent–the worst on record for a newly-elected president at this stage in his presidency. As bad as those numbers are, in all likelihood, they’re inflated. The only thing keeping Trump from completely cratering is his off-the-scale support from the religious right. […]

Trump-Worshiping Fundies Join Chorus Peddling Alternative Facts About Junior’s Russian Meeting (VIDEO, AUDIO)

Even in the face of Donald Trump Jr. admitting that he met with a Russian lawyer in hopes of getting Kremlin-flavored “opposition research” about Hillary Clinton, the most diehard Trump supporters refuse to accept that it happened. It’s likely that some of them are being influenced by the alternative fact du jour. Lately, pro-Trump “news” […]

Fundie Leader Calls Pence A Deep State Puppet (VIDEOS/TWEETS)

As most of us know, a number of religious right leaders started warming to Donald Trump soon after he named Mike Pence as his running mate. Pence, remember, is one of them–he considers himself “a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order.” Since Trump’s upset victory, Pence has served as the White House’s […]

RWNJ Pastor Says America Is Led By ‘Satanists,’ But Praises Russia For ‘Morality’ (AUDIO)

In case you missed it, the only reason Donald Trump’s head is still above water is that over 70 percent of white evangelicals still back him, even in the face of the nearly daily outrages coming from the White House. It’s partly because they listen to people like Rick Wiles of TruNews. Wiles is so […]

RWNJ Pastor Makes Un-American Call For Purge Of Liberals After Alexandria (AUDIO)

RWNJ Pastor Makes Un-American Call For Purge Of Liberals After Alexandria (AUDIO)

When word got out that a hardcore Bernie Sanders supporter turned a Republican baseball team practice in Alexandria, Virginia into a shooting gallery, a number of Republicans wasted no time pointing fingers. Newt Gingrich blamed potty-mouthed Democrats, while Donald Trump, Jr.–undoubtedly speaking for his father–blamed a version of “Julius Caesar” with a man who looked a […]

RWNJ Pastor Says Mika Will Give Joe Little ‘Devils’ For Babies (VIDEO/TWEET/AUDIO)

On Thursday morning, we got a badly-needed dose of potentially good news in a news cycle that hasn’t seen much good news lately. Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” are engaged. Scarborough proposed to Brzezinski at a scenic hotel in Antibes, while they were celebrating Brzezinski’s 50th birthday. Brzezinski inadvertently announced the engagement […]

RWNJ Pastor Turns On Trump, Warns Jews May Make Him Start WWIII (TWEETS, AUDIO)

For most of the first months of the Donald Trump administration, the religious right has remained stoutly in the Donald’s corner. Even though many of the worst fears of both liberals and Republican never-Trumpers have come to pass, the religious right would have you believe that those fears are the result of witchcraft and demons. […]

Rick Wiles Riding The Super Crazy Train With Loony Claims About Obama (AUDIO)

It’s no secret that the religious right is trying to scare people into staying loyal to Donald Trump. Ever since Trump took office, leading fundies have warned that the opposition to Trump is being driven by witchcraft and demons, and that the devil himself is stirring up opposition to Trump’s drive to make America great […]

Wingnut Host Has Absurd Theory On Why Michael Flynn Was REALLY Pushed Out (AUDIO, TWEETS)

As most of us in the reality-based community know, Michael Flynn was forced to resign as national security adviser because he phoned the Russian ambassador to the United States and lied about what was discussed to both the White House and possibly the FBI. But if you listen to right-wing talk radio and watch right-leaning […]

Christofascist Host: Protests Against Trump Are ‘Satanic’ And ‘Breaking God’s Laws’ (AUDIO)

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 […]

RWNJ Host Wonders If Military Will Start Arresting People To ‘Save The Republic’ (AUDIO)

RWNJ Host Wonders If Military Will Start Arresting People To ‘Save The Republic’ (AUDIO)

A number of far-right militia outfits have vowed to go to war in hopes of overthrowing Hillary Clinton if she wins next week. But one prominent right-wing host openly wondered if that’s too late. He mused that some military elements might take it upon themselves to make a wave of arrests sometime this week in […]

Christofascist Leader: With Trump, We Will Fight Satan And Get ‘Serious Influence’ Over The Culture (VIDEOS, AUDIO)

In a sane world, the Access Hollywood tape should have all but assured a massive landslide for Hillary Clinton. So how is Donald Trump still in serious contention? It’s simple–a large chunk of the religious right has rallied behind him. They’ve managed to convince a large number of their followers that treating women with respect […]

Did This Gun Nut Make A Death Threat Against Obama’s SCOTUS Pick? (WITH AUDIO)

Did This Gun Nut Make A Death Threat Against Obama’s SCOTUS Pick? (WITH AUDIO)

President Obama caused a lot of right-wing heads to explode when he nominated Merrick Garland to take the seat of Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. But few wingnut reactions have been nearly as ugly or unhinged as that of prominent gun-rights extremist Larry Pratt. Earlier this week, he made what sounded like a death […]

Fundie Host Rick Wiles: Zika Is God’s Punishment On Latin America (WITH AUDIO)

Fundie Host Rick Wiles: Zika Is God’s Punishment On Latin America (WITH AUDIO)

Usually, whenever a major disaster or epidemic happens, some fundamentalist Christian host or personality takes to the air to say that it’s some form of divine punishment. When January came and went without any American fundie worth mentioning saying this about the Zika outbreak, I thought that at long last this crowd had come to […]

Jim Bakker: Radical Muslims Embedded In Churches

Jim Bakker: Radical Muslims Embedded In Churches

Believe it or not, folks, a ghost from the past has been pretty active lately–Jim Bakker. Since 2003, the disgraced televangelist has aired a daily show from his current base in Branson, Missouri. He’s mostly stayed under the radar since he airs on two smaller Christian television networks, Daystar and CTN; he depends mostly on […]

Extreme Right Wing Radio Host Says Obama Is ‘Demon-Possessed’ And ‘Hitler Reincarnated’

I have to admit that before today, I had never heard of Rick Wiles. I didn’t even know he existed. But something tells me I won’t be forgetting his name anytime soon, because yesterday he let rip with one of the most patently absurd claims I’ve heard in a long, long time. We all know […]
