RIGHT now, around 100 people are using one of Premier Christian’s News’ newfangled ‘prayer panels’ to ask God to iron the ever-increasing wrinkles out of Graham’s upcoming visit to the UK. They are reacting to a Premier report today that the anti-gay and Islamophobic hate preacher has been “dealt a blow” by having his planned mission in Liverpool cancelled by the ACC conference centre. The panel reads: Father God, we thank you for the ministry of Franklin Graham. We know… Read more

A RABBI based in America’s Bible Belt revealed last week that a concerned Christian flabbergasted him by saying that he needed a Jew – but definitely not an atheist – to take care of his dog when the Rapture occurs. Writing for The Forward, Jonathan Miller – Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Emanu-El in Birmingham, Alabama –  said: Many Christians in my part of the country live in a state of constant anticipation of what they call the ‘Rapture.’ They believe… Read more

LAST year, Christian Concern’s Dr Carys Moseley, above – an ardent supporter of quack gay conversion therapies – blasted the the Welsh government after learning that it intended introducing ‘changes to sex education which would see three-year-olds learning about masturbation.’ In calling for the authorities to abandon it plans to introduce a new relationships and sexuality curriculum (RSE), Moseley, policy researcher, for  Christian Concern, wrote: The Welsh government has been run by the Labour Party for twenty years now. It has… Read more

WHEN cutting-edge technology is harnessed to promote the supernatural, and encourage folk to believe that prayer is more than mere wishful thinking, one can only roll one’s eyes at the stupidity of it all. Which is precisely what I did when I discovered that Premier – one of the many Christian sites I visit daily to cull material for the Freethinker – has had a makeover, and now features a “prayer panel” at the end of each of its news… Read more

THE New Orleans Saints, owned by devout Catholic Gayle Benson, above, are fighting to conceal hundreds of emails that allegedly show how team executives advised the the area’s Roman Catholic archdiocese Catholic Church on how to lessen the impact of clerical abuse. According to a Marketwatch report published yesterday, attorneys for about two dozen men suing the church say in court filings that the 276 documents they obtained through discovery show that the NFL team aided the Archdiocese of New… Read more

IT’S an all-too-familiar tale; an individual owes his or her life to the skills of first-aiders and medics, but Team Jesus takes most of the credit. This week both the religious and secular media went into “miracle” overdrive after Christopher Wickland, 47, pastor of Living Word Pentecostal Church in Fareham, Hampshire, revealed this week that he’d “died” of a heart attack after trampolining last November, but that he came back to life after people around the world started praying for… Read more

IN the wake of a Wall Street Journal exposé last December that claimed that Peter’s Pence, the Pope’s principal charity, gave only ten percent of the millions raised from the Catholic faithful to the needy, comes news that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is being sued for taking donations under false pretenses. According to Church Militant, Texas-based legal firm the Stanley Law Group filed a class-action lawsuit against the USCCB yesterday (Wednesday), alleging the USCCB has been “lying and stealing”… Read more

LAST September Bob Ditmer compiled a list of godly American US football players for the Church Leaders website. The heading was ’17 Christian football players who LOVE Jesus (and football).’ In his introduction, Ditmer wrote: A new NFL season is about to begin and no matter which team you root for, there are several outspoken Christian football players in the NFL who you might want to follow. He placed Aaron Rodgers, above, Green Bay Packers quarterback, at No 4, saying:… Read more

DONALD Trump, according to his certifiably insane ‘spiritual advisor’ Paula White, above, will shortly be in the vanguard of a battle that will lead to ‘The Rapture.’ She knows this because Him Upstairs recently told her so. God came to me last night and showed me a vision of Trump riding alongside Jesus on a horse made of gold and jewels. This means he will play a critical role in Armageddon as the United States stands alongside Israel in the… Read more

BELIEVERS in imaginary gods do incredibly stupid and dangerous things. A Pennsylvanian woman – Nadejda Reilly, 31 – escaped uninjured after deliberately crashing her car into an oncoming vehicle to test her faith in God – and, according to police, expressed no remorse for the injuries cause to the people in the other car. An investigator said Reilly told him she had been driving around for a few hours, waiting for “a calling from God”. When the Almighty failed to provide… Read more
