If there is a creator He/She/It must hate fundamentalist religion

The deluded religious belief that any people or nation or church is a “chosen” people is the root of almost all our troubles.

Far right exclusionary religion bursts with death. If there is a creator of life He/She/It m … [Read more...]

Here’s the Most Important Document You Can Read on The Religious Right’s Plan to Turn America Into a Theocracy

When Christian Right leaders talk about religious liberty, they often really mean theocratic supremacism of their own religious beliefs inscribed in government.

Trump is the GOP/Evangelical Mirror

The Trump phenomenon isn’t  about him. It is about the 40-year right wing takeover of the GOP I describe in detail in my book CRAZY FOR GOD: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back.  It is about the Republicans and their evangelical backers on the religious and racist right fomenting a slow motion lynching of President Obama where they tried to kill his presidency with a miasma of lies.
