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...]

Court: Texas Cannot Deny Syrian Refugee Settlement

Scales of Justice550x290

In an entirely predictable result, a federal judge has denied a motion from the state of Texas to prevent the federal government from settling Syrian refugees in that state. The court ruled that the case is a political dispute to be resolved by legislatures, not by the courts and that the state had failed to support its case. … [Read more...]

New Hampshire Primary Bad for the GOP


The Republican party leadership really hoped that the New Hampshire primary would narrow the field and firmly establish Marco Rubio as the "mainstream" alternative to Trump and Cruz, but his performance in the last debate seems to have destroyed that possibility. 67% of Republican voters said the last debate was important in making their decision. … [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.

About That Sodomy Bill in Michigan

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...]

Gohmert: Supreme Court Declared Itself God


Oh, Louis Gohmert. If you didn't exist, I might have to invent you just for the lulz. He guest hosted a Christian right radio show last week and said that the Supreme Court has now declared itself to be our god by allowing gay people to get married because they ignored Moses.

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...]

Rubio: I’m as Bad as Cruz, I Promise!


Christian right leaders have flocked to Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio doesn't like it one bit. So he had his "faith outreach director" do an interview with the Christian Post to assure the wingnuts that he's every bit as much of a Christian extremist as Cruz. He'll hate gays and women just as much as Cruz, he promises! … [Read more...]

Ted Cruz Gets an Exorcism!


Okay, this is absolutely hilarious. A couple guys in Texas interrupted one of Ted Cruz' campaign speeches to attempt to perform an exorcism on him because he's possessed by demons. What makes it all the funnier is that it's people like Cruz who believe in such utter nonsense in the first place. … [Read more...]
