Rise of the Planet of the Satanazis


Some say that America is under attack by Satan himself. Liberals have been duped by Satan: You look at the average liberal in the United States, they believe things that are folly. They believe things that are irrational. They believe things that make no sense, that cannot stand up to the test of reason and [Read More...]

Marilynne Robinson vs. evangelical tribalism

“We live in a time when the claiming of a religious identity has become more important than abiding in what that truth implies,” Marilynne Robinson said last month at the Festival of Faith and Writing at Calvin College. That “claiming of a religious identity” and the elevating of it above the meaning, content or substance [Read More...]

Satanazis III: Night of the Satanazis


Don’t imagine you’re safe just because Pat Robertson, Demon Hunter, is on the job. Sure, Robertson’s Age-Defying Shakes give him the strength to leg-press 1,000 pounds, but that won’t be enough when the Satanic baby-killers and the Nazis join forces to create the terrifying Satanazis who are coming to destroy your family and America and [Read More...]

Return of the Satanazis!


“Unspeakable horrors from outer space paralyze the living and resurrect the dead!” It’s … We start on the radio, with a Dobson ‘N’ Friends chat on the evils of evil evildoers. Wife-beating apologist James Dobson offers a sweeping, but still fairly generic, condemnation: If you scratch around anywhere near the Planned Parenthood message and the [Read More...]

Defending America from the Satanazis

Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite asks a good question: The choice between the biblical values of “good news for the poor” as announced by Jesus, and the “good news for the rich” of GOP fiscal proposals should be an easy one for Christians across the spectrum from liberal to conservative. But it’s not, as is clear from [Read More...]

The immaculate connections

It's Lourdes' mom. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I am deeply impressed by Stacey Dames latest blog entry at the Christian Post. It’s titled: “Madonna’s New Age End Time Satanism…it is reappearing in these end days. IT DID NOT BEGIN WITH THE SUPERBOWL.” I can’t begin to know how to describe such things, but this is one of the best examples of whatever-it-is [Read More...]

Rick Santorum and the Anti Kitten-Burning Coalition

Burning kittens is wrong. It is cruel, it is illegal and it is, quite simply, evil. No one should burn kittens. I am, unambiguously and without qualification, opposed to burning kittens. I am also confident that you are opposed to this too. And that latter point is why I cannot join the Anti Kitten-Burning Coalition. [Read More...]

Actions speak louder than “Satanic baby-killer” rhetoric

Syndicated reruns got me hooked on the old CBS show Early Edition years after it was cancelled. It’s a lot of fun. If you haven’t seen it, it starred a pre-Friday Night Lights Kyle Chandler as Chicagoan Gary Hobson. Every morning, mysteriously, he receives the next day’s newspaper — a newspaper with tomorrow’s news. Given [Read More...]
