Fischer Still Totally Incoherent on the First Amendment


Bryan Fischer's views of the First Amendment have always been contradictory and absurd, but I don't recall him contradicting himself so blatantly in the same rant before. He claims that NASA is violating the Free Exercise Clause by banning mentions of Jesus in their newsletter. So let's look at what he says: … [Read more...]

Rios: Beyonce Bringing on the Antichrist!


The right wing is losing their collective mind (they do seem to share one) over Beyonce's performance at the Super Bowl halftime show, which was partly a tribute to the Black Panthers.

Jones: Sanders Voters Need to Have Their Jaws Broken


Alex Jones must have huffed some extra paint fumes before he went on this idiotic rant in which he said that the "pathetic scum" who support Bernie Sanders "need to have your jaws broken" because Sanders is going to impose a communist dictatorship like China. Always nice to hear from Planet Dumbass, isn't it? … [Read more...]

Now that deranged bigot James David Manning's church is up for tax auction, the Ali Forney Center wants to buy it and turn it into a shelter for homeless LGBT youth.

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...]

Gaffney: Fighting Islamophobia Will Get People Killed


Deranged anti-Muslim bigot Frank Gaffney is quite upset that President Obama actually spoke out against anti-Muslim bigotry during a visit to a mosque recently. Because why in the world would he want to do that while people like Gaffney are beating up anyone they think might be Muslim, including Hindus and Sikhs? … [Read more...]

Scales of Justice550x290

For the past several days I've seen a ton of headlines about Michigan passing a law that puts people in prison for 15 years if they have oral or anal sex. Given that the sources this has come from, like the New Civil Rights Movement, aren't exactly reliable and are prone to wildly exaggerated claims, I've also had a few people message me and ask me if it's true. So let me explain. … [Read more...]

Rafael Cruz: Secular Humanism is Our National Religion


Rafael Cruz has never had anything more than a tenuous connection to reality so it's no surprise that he actually believes, or at least claims to believe, that we are now living in a theocracy of secular humanism. Damn, I wish he were right, but that's fantasy so ridiculous that only a Christian dominionist could possibly believe it. … [Read more...]
