Oh Boy, a Curse on Martin Shkreli

I know the whole country despises pharma bro price gouger Martin Shkreli, but a group of "witches" from Brooklyn is "taking action" -- that is to say, mumbling some irrelevant words they consider to be curses -- against him. Because that's sure to do the trick, don't you think? … [Read more...]

E. W. Jackson’s Brilliant ‘New’ Idea

E.W. Jackson, failed candidate for lt. governor of Virginia and incredibly douchy preacher, has stumbled upon an ingenious idea for how to get Christians to vote more. And it all starts by reaching out to their pastors to have them preach at their flock that they must vote for godly candidates. Stop me if you've heard this one before. … [Read more...]

The Return of Marc Driscoll

Proving PT Barnum correct yet again, disgraced megachurch pastor Marc Driscoll has returned after slinking away from the Christian empire he built around his Mars Hill church. He's "planted" a new church in Phoenix, which I have no doubt will soon be filling his bank account once again with the spoils of successful grifting. … [Read more...]

Barton: I don’t have a PhD. I Mean, I Do Have a PhD.

Glenn Beck has introduced David Barton in the past by claiming he has a PhD in history, with Barton not bothering to correct him. Now in an interview to promote the re-release of the aptly named The Jefferson Lies, Barton admits that he doesn't have a PhD. And then immediately says he does. … [Read more...]

Trump Gets Another Prosperity Preacher Endorsement

Ted Cruz may be getting the lion's share of the Christian right endorsements, but the prosperity gospel preachers -- read: con men -- seem to love Donald Trump.

Joyner’s Fake Degree and Fake University

Self-declared "prophet" and con man Rick Joyner not only has a huge megachurch, he also owns Morningstar University and refers to himself as Dr. Rick Joyner. Unsurprisingly, it turns out that his "doctorate" is fake. In fact, he has only a high school GED that is legitimate. … [Read more...]

Donald Trump is Demonic!

Our old friend Gordon Klingenschmitt has a guest column on his website from a guy named Andre Traversa, who seems a good match for him. He's a big Ted Cruz fan and he's decided that Donald Trump's attacks on Cruz are proof that he's possessed by demons. I'm sure he and Gordon have names for them. … [Read more...]

Cindy Jacobs Can Change the Weather!

Our old friend Cindy Jacobs is at it again. She of the bottomless spaghetti bowl also can command the weather and send the rain clouds away so they can do a videotaping for the 700 Club. It may take a half an hour to do it, but she's just sure it was her praying that made the rain go away. Because obviously, clouds don't move with the winds or anything. Hemant has the story: … [Read more...]

Bakker Blames Weird Weather on ‘Spirit of ISIS’

Whenever Jim Bakker and Rick Wiles get together, which seems to be pretty often these days, much hilarity is bound to ensue. These two chowderheads are like two peas in a pod, sharing a small portion of a syphilitic monkey brain found in the back of a research lab in Oklahoma. And today, they're going to explain basic meteorology to all the good little boys and girls. … [Read more...]

Satan Using Fire Alarms to Censor Jim Bakker

The concept of cause and effect has always been a real problem for fundamentalist Christians. Natural disasters are not caused by weather patterns, atmospheric conditions or tectonic plate shifting but by God being angry about all the things they themselves hate. Perhaps that explains why Jim Bakker blames Satan when a fire alarm goes off in the studio where he films his show. … [Read more...]

Klingenschmitt: Demons Behind Failure to Defund Planned Parenthood

Our old pal Gordon Klingenschmitt is seeing demons everywhere again. After Congress failed to defund Planned Parenthood, he has "discerned" that the reason for the failure is that the legislators who voted were under the influence of a "demonic spirit of murder" (never mind that the funds PP receives are actually used to save lives, the details don't matter). … [Read more...]
