Barton Goes Full-on Theocrat


We've all known for a long time that David Barton is a theocrat who thinks the Bible should determine the law of the land.

Cruz: I’m a Christian First, American Second

Another day, another declaration of Christian fascism by Theodore Shoebat, son of fake "ex-terrorist" Walid Shoebat.

Eidsmoe’s Incoherent Arguments About Planned Parenthood Shootings

John Eidsmoe is a Christian Reconstructionist who works for Roy Moore's Foundation for Moral Law. He was also Michele Bachmann's mentor at Oral Roberts University. And he makes a thoroughly incoherent, victim-blaming argument about what caused Robert Dear to go on a rampage at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs.

Alabama Newspaper Slams Chief Justice Roy Moore


In the wake of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore's reiterating of a year-old memo telling that state's probate judges that they must ignore the Supreme Court's ruling in Obergefell, the leading newspaper in Alabama is hammering him hard.

Shoebat: Trump the Only Real Christian in the Race


Deranged Christian sociopath and fascist Theodore Shoebat made an 80-minute long video review of the last Republican presidential debate, which he titled "All Of The Candidates Except For Donald Trump Hate Christianity And Are Enemies Of Christ."

Scott Lively, the deranged anti-gay bigot who brags about being influential in passing brutal anti-gay laws in Russia, Uganda and elsewhere, has put a list of "pro-family heroes" for 2015.
