Alveda King Goes Full-On Theocrat


Alveda King, the wingnut niece of Martin Luther King who continually reminds people of that to give herself credibility even though she stands for nearly everything he spent his life fighting against, works for Priests for Life, one of the groups whose lawsuit over the secondary accommodation in the ACA has been accepted for appeal by the Supreme Court. So she put out a press release basically calling for theocracy. … [Read more...]

Worldnetdaily Will Republish Barton’s Book of Jefferson Lies


Ever since Thomas Nelson Publishers pulled David Barton's appropriately named The Jefferson Lies from bookstore shelves due to a huge number of false claims in it, Barton has repeatedly said that it would be republished by someone else. Now we know who, and it should come as no surprise whatsoever that the new publisher is the Worldnetdaily, which cares as little about the truth as Barton. WND says: … [Read more...]

Virginia County GOP Creates ‘Christian Heritage’ Flier

Church and State

The Republican Party of Augusta County, Virginia recently distributed a flier calling on voters to "preserve our Christian heritage" by voting Republican in a Nov. 3rd election. The official who created the ad seems more than just a bit confused about the Constitution and the Founding Fathers, unsurprisingly. He thinks the founders only wanted Christians to be in office. … [Read more...]

Christian Reconstructionist Group Swaps One Fascist for Another


The Christian Reconstructionist group American Vision is changing leaders. Christian Fascist Gary DeMar is stepping down and being replaced by fellow Christian fascist Joel McDurmon. These are the people who want to "restore America to its biblical foundations" by implementing the Mosaic law as the civil and criminal law of the land. Of course, America was never a theocracy, so they aren't actually "restoring" anything. … [Read more...]

Anatomy of a David Barton Lie


Warren Throckmorton is again taking David Barton to task for his ubiquitous lies. This time he's focusing on Barton's claim that John Locke's Two Treatises of Government contains more than 1500 references to the Bible. It's a claim that Barton has made over and over again, in books and videos and interviews. It's completely false. But Throckmorton has figured out how Barton does the math. … [Read more...]

Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Farah vs Coulter

Credit: Gage Skidmore

During the Republican presidential debate on Wednesday night, Ann Coulter apparently got so fed up with the GOP's pandering to Israel that she tweeted out, "How many fucking Jews do these people think there are in the United States?" That got Worldnetdaily owner Joseph Farah hopping mad and accusing her of anti-Semitism. And he's shocked -- SHOCKED -- to find out that Coulter has "degenerated" into a "slur machine." … [Read more...]

John Adams and American Exceptionalism


Warren Throckmorton, a Patheos blogger in the Evangelical Christian portal, calls our attention to a letter from John Adams to John Taylor in 1814, a letter I had never seen before. His argument in that letter seems to be a direct rebuttal to all the talk we hear today about American exceptionalism and the idea that America is uniquely favored by God as an example of Christian virtue to the world. … [Read more...]

Mikey Gets Email

Mikey Weinstein gets some of the vile hate mail imaginable and I like to republish the worst of them. This one is particularly heinous, full of bigoted slurs and actually cheering on the idea of him burning in hell. Must be some of that Christian "love" we hear so much about. … [Read more...]

Sarah Palin for Energy Secretary


Sarah Palin, the grifter from Wasila, says she wants to be the Secretary of Energy under President Donald Trump, presumably because they share a total ignorance of how government actually works. And she says that if she were named to that position, she wouldn't hold it very long -- that seems familiar, doesn't it? After all, you wouldn't want to take time away from your next reality show -- because she'd just close the whole agency up. … [Read more...]

Liberty Law School Dean Goes Full-On Theocrat

Church and State

Rena Lindevaldsen, the interim dean of the Liberty University Law School (replacing Mat Staver, who stepped down a few months ago), has gone full-on theocrat. In a speech to students at that university, she bluntly declared that the government has no authority to pass any law or enforce any decision that goes against (her own interpretation of) the Bible. RJ Rushdoony would be so proud of her. … [Read more...]

Tired of Democrats and Republicans? Vote for the Christian Party

Church and State

A Tennessee man, apparently thinking that the Republican Party, or even the Constitution Party, just aren't quite Christian enough for him, has formed the Christian Party and declared himself a candidate for president. Darrell Trigg is running on a plainly theocratic platform, though not as extreme as the Constitution Party, which is made up mostly of Christian Reconstructionists. … [Read more...]

Titus: We Should Only Allow Christian Immigration

Many years ago, a couple friends of mine put me in touch with Herb Titus, former dean of Pat Robertson's Regent School of Law, after I had written a blog post referring to him as a Christian Reconstructionist. Turns out he's not, but only for technical theological reasons. There is no question that the man is a genuine theocrat, he's made no bones about that. And now he says that we should only allow Christians to emigrate to the United States. … [Read more...]
