Many leaders at a conference on religious liberty don’t understand liberty.

Leave it to religious people to hold a convention in the interest of protecting liberty to be oblivious to just what a negative influence they are to the liberty of others in the name of preserving religious privilege.

Good news! Drinking Starbucks makes you a sinner.

David Barton would be out of a job for being a fraud if not for Christians who eagerly pay him to lie to them.  Recently he told a whole congregation that you can’t drink Starbucks coffee without opposing Jesus.  You see, Starbucks supports love in the form of marriage equality, and Jesus hates that. “Biblically, [Read More…]

He thinks the demand for exorcisms is on the rise. The [Read More…]
