Bryan Fischer Award: David Barton

The Worldnetdaily has an article about Rafael Cruz addressing allegation from Donald Trump that he was somehow involved with the assassination of JFK. I really couldn't care less about that, but these few paragraphs earn David Barton a Bryan Fischer Award: … [Read more...]

Another Bigot Thinks Sikhs Are Muslims

Hoboken, New Jersey City Councilman Ravinder Bhalla is a Sikh. That seems to have caught the attention of yet another ignorant, dumbass bigot who doesn't know the difference between a Sikh and a Muslim. And since he thinks all Muslims are terrorists and Sikhs are Muslims, Bhalla must be a terrorist. … [Read more...]

Arpaio: It’s Not My Fault I Cost the County Tens of Millions

Fascist Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio still refuses to accept any responsibility for the money he has cost the county defending his blatant misconduct and racist policing, which now amounts to well over $100 million. But it's not his fault, he says, it's the government and those pesky people who sue him over it. … [Read more...]

Hagee: God Will Punish You if You Don’t Vote for Trump

Carefully avoiding mentioning any candidate by name so as to avoid IRS trouble, Christian con man John Hagee not only endorsed Donald Trump this week, he told his followers that God will punish them if they don't vote for him for president. … [Read more...]

Wiles Responds Calmly and Reasonably to Trans Bathroom Directive

Whenever anything happens in the news that might be controversial, we can always count on Rick Wiles to offer a calm, reasoned, thoughtful analysis of the store. So when the Obama administration issued its directive on trans students using school bathrooms, he very calmly replied, OBAMA AND SATAN WANT TO RAPE YOUR CHILDREN! … [Read more...]

Bryan Fischer Award: Glenn Beck

It almost seems anti-climactic to give a Bryan Fischer Award to Glenn Beck. The award, which is given to those who display a staggering lack of self-awareness and self-contradiction, could just as easily be named after Beck himself. And this latest example is simply precious. He's talking here about the jerk who accused Whole Foods of putting "fag" on a cake he ordered. … [Read more...]

It’s Official. Irony is Dead.

A friend posted this on Facebook. It's from two years ago but it's so jaw-dropping given the source that it's worth sharing. Bradlee Dean, who must be one of the most irrational human beings ever to walk on this rock hurtling through space, actually posted this to his Facebook page: … [Read more...]

The ADF and Anti-Sodomy Laws

Media Matters has a video that documents the Alliance Defending Freedom's long history of anti-gay activism. It makes the important point that the same Christian legal groups who pretend to defend "religious freedom" also demanded 13 years ago that state laws that put gay people in jail must be upheld as constitutional. … [Read more...]

O’Reilly: Feminists Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Cover Trump

I'm dumbfounded. Bill O'Reilly makes a lot of egregiously stupid statements but I think he may have hit rock bottom with this one. He says that feminist reporters should not be allowed to write stories about Donald Trump because he's the "antithesis" of a feminist. … [Read more...]

David Barton: ‘America’s Premier Historian’

Warren Throckmorton notes that Rick Green, David Barton's co-host (and employee) on the Wallbuilders Live radio show, has begun introducing him on the show as "America's premier historian." No, seriously. With a straight face, apparently. … [Read more...]

How to Be Really Bad at Biblical Exegesis

Jim Bakker had a survivalist preacher named Steve Quayle on his show and he gave a perfect demonstration about how to do really stupid Biblical exegesis. He actually claimed that the New Testament may have been referring to Donald Trump when it says trumpet. Oh, and God is using Trump to expose America's "political sins." … [Read more...]

Samantha Bee is a Genius

With every show she does, it becomes more obvious that Samantha Bee should have taken over the Daily Show from Jon Stewart. Her recent 10-minute riff on the history of the Christian right was sheer genius. It's really amazing that some of the best journalism these days is being done by her and John Oliver. … [Read more...]
