Gohmert: Supreme Court Declared Itself God

Rafael Cruz: Secular Humanism is Our National Religion


Rafael Cruz has never had anything more than a tenuous connection to reality so it's no surprise that he actually believes, or at least claims to believe, that we are now living in a theocracy of secular humanism.

Rubio: I’m as Bad as Cruz, I Promise!

John Fea Echoes My Argument on Thomas Jefferson


I have been arguing for more than a decade now that today's "Christian nation" crowd is making the exact opposite of the claims their forebears made about religion and the founders, especially Thomas Jefferson. In the late 18th century, Jefferson was a terrible infidel and the Constitution was a godless document.

Damn, No Third Great Awakening I Guess
