Meet David Barton, the theocratic guru to the far far right running the umbrella PAC of the Cruz family of super PACs. David Barton is a hero to many grassroots evangelicals, but is considered a fraud - the Howard Zinn of the Christian right - by evangelical historians and scholars. Jon Ward has written a VERY important expose of the Cruz-Barton plan for America...  This article was first published by Yahoo News and is republished here with the written permission of the author.

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...]

Can Ted Cruz revive the evangelicalism of the past?

"LYNCHBURG, VA – Ted Cruz came to this southern town Monday to launch his presidential campaign, but also to revive a strain of American evangelicalism that was birthed here in the 1980s. Cruz, a Republican senator from Texas, traveled to the home of Liberty University, an institution born in 1971 that now boasts a student body of 13,800 and touts itself as “the largest Christian university in the world.” Liberty is a monument to the determination of its founder, the Rev. Jerry Falwell, to creat … [Read more...]

My Ted Cruz/Tea Party Blast on MSNBC–We Don’t Have a Political Problem, But an Evangelical Problem

Here's my latest MSNBC interview from last night, in which I explain Ted and Rafael Cruz' demented deluded evangelical/Tea Party anti-American "religion." Evangelicalism has become the enemy of Jesus, sanity and of American values. We don't have a political problem, we have a theological problem. It's destroyed the Republican Party and risks our country's future, as I show in my new book on religious delusion And God Said, "Billy!"Strange that angry evangelicals attack those including me … [Read more...]

Who Will Preach the Gospel to the Jesus-Hating Evangelical White Tribe?

 How can the Jesus-deniers like Franklin Graham and the other evangelical leaders be reached with the gospel of Jesus Christ? Are they beyond hope? In human terms they are. But all things are possible with God. So perhaps, even the American evangelical Jesus-hating tribe may be saved.Franklin curses Jesus by (according to media reports) taking a $612,884 per year salary* from funds donated to help the poor and spread the gospel.What did Mother Teresa pay herself?Evangelicals … [Read more...]
