Franklin Graham: Jesus is the “Only Cure” for Gun Violence

Franklin Graham, the Christian evangelist who seems to instinctively disagree with everything President Obama says, couldn’t bring himself to admit that the common sense gun safety measures proposed by Obama made any sense.

God Is Done With Drunken Snowmobilers Expecting a Near-Death Experience

Christian Leader Furious After New Jersey School Makes Saying “God Bless America” Optional

Here’s yet another reminder that Focus on the Family under the leadership of Jim Daly is really no different than it was under James Dobson.

It involves an incident that took place last week at Glenview Elementary School in New Jersey. Students there were told to say “God bless America” after the Pledge of Allegiance (because why invoke God once when you can do it twice?!)… and they had been doing this since 9/11.

The ACLU reminded the District that this was not something you could tell kids to say, and administrators reluctantly complied. They said it would no longer be a formal part of the school day. But kids who wanted to say it could obviously still do that.

So how did Focus on the Family spin that story to their gullible Christian base?


Well, Daly’s post is titled “It’s Now Illegal to Say ‘God Bless America’?” if that gives you any indication. (The question mark doesn’t temper the bullshit claim he’s making, but the obvious answer is “no.”)

A 49-year-old Louisville, Kentucky woman, Laura Reid, stands accused of assaulting and robbing a disabled man back in October. Her motive? The victim had “joked” to her that he doesn’t believe in God.

Heaven knows what she’d have done to him if he hadn’t merely been kidding about his unbelief.
