WATCH This mashup of The Big Lebowski’s Walter Sobchak silencing Donald Trump

As noted in SALON "the 1998 film The Big Lebowski was 17 years ahead of its time. The movie’s iconic phrase “Shut the f**k up, Donny!” is seemingly the perfect response to every ridiculous Donald Trump quote. So we decided to create the mashup for you."Enjoy!Frank Schaeffer is a writer. His latest book --WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to give love, create beauty and find peaceAvailable now on Amazon Follow Frank on Twitter www. … [Read more...]

Do You Think the Pope’s Visit Actually Means Anything?

Will Pope Francis' visit mean anything more than a chance for the media to sell advertising? I can't answer that but I can tell you that I doubt his fellow "Christians" on the religious right will change anything because of his visit.Take,  Indiana Sen. Dan Coats, who said of Francis'  statements on income inequality, “I’m always concerned about those who are bringing spiritual messages that step too far over the line in terms of political issues.”Check out Coats' Tweet re separation of r … [Read more...]

Is Ann Coulter an anti-Semite?

Is Ann Coulter an anti-Semite? She asks "How many f---ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?" I only met Coulter once and she struck me as self-involved to the point of delusion but sane. So maybe this crazy tilt to Jew-baiting is all one of a piece of where the GOP tribe is headed and not just a crazed rant. Prediction: if Trump can get away with overt racism , Coulter can lead the Tea Party tribe to Jew-hating. She hated the nice-to-Jews slate of Republican presidential … [Read more...]

How Billy Graham prepared the country for Donald Trump

photo photo www.nydailynews.comhoto,  Billy Graham, prepared the country for Donald Trump, as it were. What a perfect match Tea Party delusion and evangelical delusion turned out to be. A new national poll released last Tuesday has found that a majority of the Republican Party is living in a fantasy-land. That delusion broke-brain state was created for them by evangelicals. Remember that 50 percent of Republican primary and caucus voters have been white evangelical, or … [Read more...]


All the GOP candidates for president pledged to fight on following the gay marriage court ruling. Here is what they said BUT I've ADDED MY OWN WORDS to each actual statement in BOLD CAPS to get to the point of what they really mean... IF YOU COULD GET INTO THEIR HEADS...Mike Huckabee, said that while he was certain that “some cowardly politicians will wave the white flag,” he was determined not to bow to a decision he saw as illegitimate. “I will not acquiesce to an imperial court,” he said F … [Read more...]

Here’s Another (Visual) Reason to Keep the Republicans out of the White House

Here's another reason to keep the Republicans out of the White House...they would not light up the White House in the rainbow of colors! Thanks Mr. President! Every single GOP candidate for president blasted the Supreme Court for making gay marriage a right the very same week they blasted them (and filed new lawsuits, no kidding!) for upholding health care for the poor, the very same week they defended the confederate flag. At least the GOP is consistent-- they just hate everyone... except … [Read more...]

So who will Rubio and Cruz take America back from?

 Rubio stands out for his religion-broken brain. He converted from Roman Catholicism to Mormonism --  then back again. Still, maybe the good old RC isn't sexy enough for this guy. As Jeffrey Tayler points out in Salon, He two-times Pope Francis by going to a megachurch in Miami Christ Fellowship.Christ Fellowship is sort of nuts. They do demonology stuff, exorcism, and teach Young Earth creationism.  They (sort of like Gordon college, Boston area bastion of gay hate) deman … [Read more...]

Will California face a backlash for its homophobic legislation like Uganda Did?

"So will the State of California face the threat of similar federal sanctions for its own proposed “kill the gays” referendum? In attempting to put the Sodomite Suppression Act – which allows “any person who willingly touches another person of the same gender for purposes of sexual gratification” to “be put to death by bullets to the head or by any other convenient method” – on the ballot in California, attorney Matt McLaughlin has made it clear that too many people in the United States are no be … [Read more...]
