Meet the Bottom-Dwelling “Faith Leaders” — Franklin Graham included — Selling America For Access to Power at Trump’s swearing-in

Think of Paula White’s ministry as the church version of Trump University. Think of Franklin Graham as Putin's best friend in America other than Trump. Graham is fan of Russian strongman Vladimir Putin, praising Putin’s anti-gay policies and defending his support for the Assad regime in Syria. Graham went to Russia in 2015, where he praised Putin while criticizing America... these are just some of the religious leaders welcoming America's strongman Putin shill to illegitimate power. In this arti … [Read more...]

No Lives Matter: Will the last gender studies professor welcoming the last gay student to the last safe space college catering to sensitive transgender students learning to write code and dreaming of startups please turn out the lights?

(Photo: Wikipedia)We are facing the most important question in human history and it's not about Jesus, abortion rights, women, Black Lives Matter, Facebook or gay rights.

an open letter to millennials about this election from an old guy who actually likes you

 You are a betrayed generation. Frivolous divorce rocked your world as too many parents gave up on themselves and you. Your family may have been stable but too many weren't. Too many people were deprived of happiness found in unconditional love. Instead of education that deepens the soul you were herded into crap schools that are designed to turn out workers for corporations not complete people and open doors. You've been lied to. Life is not about career success but the embrace of just … [Read more...]

Trump and the Evangelicals are now One and the Same– Literally. To the Evangelicals America’s Gays, Blacks, Hispanics and Women are a “Strong-Willed” Child in Need of Breaking and if Need be– Killing

(Photo queerty.com/YouTube)An old friend of mine Gary Bauer -- we worked together on the "pro-life" circuit before I fled the religious right -- president of American Values --  endorsed Trump in his address to the Values Voters Summit in Washington: This country is the equivalent of that hijacked plane right now.

Not any more. Today's evangelicals are voting for a traitor in bed with an anti-American fascist thug aiming nukes at your town. How things changed! So what happened to make American evangelical "patriots" fall in love with a murdering hate-filled thug like … [Read more...]

Here’s the Best Article I’ve Read on Just Why and How Evangelicals Can Deny Everything They Say they believe and Support the Ultimate Anti-Jesus Candidate: Trump

 "According to the Pew Research Center, 78 percent of white evangelical voters say they would vote for Trump if the election were held today. Trump is now armed with an evangelical executive advisory board, that includes James Dobson, former president of Focus on the Family, and Richard Land, the former president of the Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission. Both condemn homosexuality, oppose the distribution of pornography and neither seems likely to endorse a candidate … [Read more...]

White Christian America sees Donald Trump as their modern Moses

 "White Christian America sees Donald Trump as their modern Moses" writes Steven Rosenfeld in an important AlterNet article: "Threatened to the Core by Fading Power and Demographics, White Christian America is Going All in on Trump."That’s the takeaway of pollsters who specialize in tracking religion and American life and were initially startled as Trump beat a handful of preachers or their sons in the early primaries, namely Scott Walker and Ted Cruz. It’s what’s behind new polls fin … [Read more...]
