Holy Spirit Told Ted Cruz to Run for President


I find this quite hilarious. Rafael Cruz went on a Christian TV show and told the host that his son Ted only ran for president because the Holy Spirit told him to in an hours-long prayer session in which he surrendered himself to the will of God and became but a lowly servant carrying out the orders of the almighty. … [Read more...]

Cruz Wins Iowa Despite the Opposition of Satan


Ted Cruz has a campaign prayer team and it's made up of the kind of people who think there's an actual Satan who is working overtime to stop him from becoming president. Apparently, Satan is able to cause communications problems, which tells me that they all need to anoint their cell phones and laptops with holy water. … [Read more...]

Manning is a Tad Bit Upset About LGBT Group Buying His Church


Deranged Christian fascist James David Manning is all worked up now that a pro-gay group is raising money to buy his church, which has been put up for tax auction because he's a million dollars in debt, and turn it into a halfway house for gay teenagers.

Liberty Counsel Slut Shames Assistant Prosecutor

Scales of Justice550x290

The Christian right is absolutely desperate to discredit the grand jury indictments against two people who produced highly dishonest videos lying about Planned Parenthood.

Rafael Cruz: Ted is Running to Spread the Love of Jesus


Rafael Cruz went on Steve Deace's radio show and driveled out a bunch of nonsensical cliches about "Judeo-Christian values" before ultimately saying that his son Ted is running for president in order to “share the love of Jesus Christ” with everyone in America. Gee thanks, Ted. … [Read more...]

Joyner: If Carolina Wins Super Bowl, We’ll Have Third Great Awakening


Self-declared prophet and wingnut Rick Joyner, whose church is near Charlotte, North Carolina, says that if the Carolina Panthers win the Super Bowl this weekend it will be a sign from God that America is about to experience a third "great awakening."

Is Beck’s Empire Beginning to Crumble?

Glenn Beck 1

There's a big shakeup going on inside Glenn Beck's media empire, apparently, and some unnamed insiders are saying that this could be the beginning of a mass exodus. Rats from a sinking ship, perhaps? Frankly, I doubt it. There will always be a large audience for Beck's particular brand of ignorance, paranoia and grandiosity. … [Read more...]

Deace Repeatedly Claims Cruz Mailers Were Fake


Steve Deace, the third-rate Rush Limbaugh wannabe from Iowa who has not only endorsed Ted Cruz for president but has basically said anyone who doesn't vote for him is stupid, repeatedly claimed on Twitter that those vile mailings Cruz' campaign put out were fakes. Until the campaign confirmed that they had sent them out. … [Read more...]

Phil Robertson Spews Stupid for Ted Cruz


Duck Dynasty douchebag, bigot and noted historical scholar Phil Robertson was out stumping for Ted Cruz in Iowa over the weekend and, predictably, saying some incredibly stupid things. Good strategy, really, when you're trying to reach Republican voters in Iowa, who aren't exactly a bunch of Rhodes scholars, to say the least. … [Read more...]
