It’s been a while since I’ve gotten an email from a completely irrational person who is angry at me, but I got one on Sunday from a woman named Carol Bellis who is apparently quite upset with an old post I wrote making fun of people who claim to be “soul coaches” or “past life coaches.” I’ll reproduce it below.

Pat Robertson said again recently that young earth creationism is nonsense, one of the few things he’s ever gotten right, and that has drawn the ire of his fellow fundies. Rick Wiles says that Robertson is an apostate and an embarrassment to the body of Christ. Besides, Robertson has been known to hang out with Jews and that always angers Wiles. (more…) Read more

Kat Kerr, the transparently obvious con artist who claims to be able to turn back hurricanes and other natural disasters, has a prophecy that Donald Trump is going to win reelection in 2020 because Jesus likes him. And she knows that because Jesus told her so. Then the dog told her to go murder the babysitter. (more…) Read more

A reader alerted me to a post I wrote almost six years ago about Pat Robertson’s Operation Blessing. It was based on a Guardian article that claimed the organization did virtually nothing to help the people of the People’s Republic of Congo after raising millions of dollars to ostensibly help refugees in that country.

Ollie North is out as president of the NRA and Carolyn Meadows is in. Who is Meadows? In addition to other things, she is the chair of the Stone Mountain Memorial Association, which contains the largest confederate monument in the country.

The Intercept got their hands on a set of talking points handed out to some Republican legislators by hired lobbyists for Saudi Arabia the day the House debated officially opposing the Saudi war in Yemen. Then they compared them to actual speeches on the floor and one Republican Congressman, Ed Royce, literally read them verbatim to urge the House not to adopt the resolution, which ultimately passed.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, is threatening Carl Kline, the administration official who overruled the FBI and CIA to grant security clearances to people like Jared Kushner, with contempt charges and possible jail time if he refuses to answer the committee’s questions in a closed door meeting adequately.

Disgraced former FBI agent John Guandolo, who was forced to leave the FBI because he had sex with a witness he was supposed to be protecting, is one of the most virulent Islamophobes in the country. So much so that he is demanding that Islam be outlawed in the United States and that Rep. Ilhan Omar be tried for treason — for being a Muslim, I guess. (more…) Read more

E.W. Jackson, the crackpot who nearly became Lt. Governor of Virginia, is one of those people who claims anyone who disagrees with him is possessed by demons. He’s finally doing something about it, borrowing a page from Bob Larson and performing an exorcism of all of us during his radio show this week. (more…) Read more
