The Limitless Possibilities of Religious Rationalization

An 11-year old girl just a short distance from where I live was shot by a stray bullet that was apparently fired from a shooting range.

The Battle of Silly Superstitions

I find this battle between "witches" seeking to "bind" Trump from doing bad things with their "spells" and the furious reaction from the Christian right to be endlessly amusing. The Worldnetdaily reacts with joy that a ritual got rained out at Trump Tower the other day. … [Read more...]

‘Witches’ Cast ‘Spell’ on Trump

From the Department of Completely Useless Gestures: A group of "witches" got together to cast a "mass spell" on Donald Trump that would "bind him" from doing any harm and remove him from office.

Wallnau: Trump Threw Witchcraft Out of the White House

Professional con artist and self-declared "prophet" Lance Wallnau is still blathering on about Donald Trump and how he was put in power to destroy Satan and blah blah blah. Apparently the White House was full of witchcraft and Trump cleansed the place by his very presence. … [Read more...]

Wiles Has a ‘Gut Feeling’ Obama is Orchestrating a Marxist Coup

It’s That Jezebel Spirit Again

You didn't think Jennifer LeClaire was going to let all the other Christian right fantasists have all the fun in babbling about the "Jezebel spirit" and the women's marches to protest Trump. She got Landon Schott to write about it for Charisma News. … [Read more...]

Jennifer LeClaire Has Another ‘Prophecy’

Jennifer LeClaire, Pentecostal preacher and editor of Charisma News (not to mention someone absolutely obsessed with all that "Jezebel spirit" bullshit) has had another "prophecy" (translation: she's talking to herself) that God is going to take over the media. … [Read more...]

Ivanka and Husband Get Special Dispensation from God for Inauguration

Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are Orthodox Jews, which means they can't travel in a vehicle during the sabbath.

People All Over the World, Join Hands, Start a…’POTUS Shield’?

A group of my very favorite Christian con artists and self-declared "prophets of God" are descending on Washington, DC this week to pray and sing and mumble incoherently in order to form a "POTUS Shield" over the city to protect Trump against spiritual heebie jeebies. Or something. … [Read more...]

Are You Ready for a Jericho March?

The whackadoodle Christian group Intercessors for America is getting their march on. Starting today they're going to begin a "Jericho march," taking laps around the White House and Capitol Hill blowing a trumpet for six days.

Tomczak: Trump’s Election a Prophetic ‘Breakthrough’

Wingnut extraordinaire Larry Tomczak has a post at BarbWire that makes me laugh. He's only the latest to claim that Trump's election is the fulfillment of prophecy and the work of God, but he takes it much further. It's "breakthrough" that will allow all Christians to solve every problem. … [Read more...]

Beware the ‘Army of Demons’ Roaming the Land

You gotta love the Worldnutdaily and headlines like this: "Urgent warning: 'Army of demons' on loose." The article cites a "longtime expert on spiritual warfare," which sounds a lot like the world's foremost authority on unicorn herding. … [Read more...]
