When Will Liberty Counsel Admit a Massive Kim Davis Rally in Peru Never Happened?

When Kim Davis was given an award at the Values Voter Summit this weekend, her attorney Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel mentioned that more than 100,000 people had shown up for a prayer rally in her honor in Peru. He showed an image that was tweeted out the day before by fellow conservative Matt Barber:

Just one problem with that: The prayer rally for Kim Davis never happened.

Donald Trump Reminds Audience of His Christian Faith By Holding Up His Childhood Bible

At the Values Voter Summit over the weekend, Donald Trump attempted once again to endear himself to evangelical Christians in the only way he knows how: Using buzzwords since he can’t do it genuinely.

Memories Pizza in Indiana Inadvertently Catered a Gay Wedding

Earlier this year, when Indiana was facing all sorts of backlash for its new law legalizing anti-gay discrimination, one of the companies making headlines was Memories Pizza in the city of Walkerton.

Oath Keepers Will Guard “Jesus Welcomes You to Hawkins” Sign Even Though It’s Coming Down

Remember earlier this month when the conservative militant group Oath Keepers offered to “protect” Kim Davis from law enforcement officials if they tried to send her back to jail? It was a scary thought because these vigilantes with guns were suggesting they would take matters into their own hands if they didn’t like what the courts were saying. Eventually, Davis’ legal team asked the group to back off; the last thing they needed was another reason for people to denounce conservatives.

Well, the Oath Keepers have a new item on their agenda. They’ll be showing up in Texas to protect the giant sign that says “Jesus Welcomes You to Hawkins”:
