Desperate David Vitter Uses Duck Dynasty For Political Redemption

Remember when Duck Dynasty was still a thing? Remember how you couldn’t go into any gas station without seeing their merchandise? Well, here in Louisiana, they’re still kinda sorta a thing – especially if you’re a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is struggling in the polls against a Democrat you’ve repeatedly linked to President Obama. A […]

Jackson, Mississippi Mayor Tony Yarber Says City Can ‘Pray Potholes Away’

Jackson is the capital of the state of Mississippi, and the largest city as well with a population of over 170,000 residents.

Alabama Church Opens Gun Range In The Name Of Jesus

Louisiana Boy Suspended From Public School For Having Long Hair

Louisiana, especially the rigidly conservative Protestant part of the state from Alexandria northwards, has a real problem with separating church and state.

Mississippi Lawmakers Propose Making The Bible Official State Book

Earlier this week, it was the story about Winfield, Alabama declaring itself to be owned by God (sorry Jesus, no refunds). Now, Mississippi lawmakers want to make the Bible the official book of the state of Mississippi, and that really makes you wonder what the hell these people are thinking. I know, I know, this […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Buys Some Lube, the Bible Belt Girds Its Loins

Hey, I’m Pastor Pillow! Thanks for letting me skip to the front of the line! I’m in a hurry. I have to pick up pizza for 10,000 hungry, quarantined parishioners right after I get out of here. You see, Cubic Zirconium Cathedral is in lockdown. I just delivered my Sunday morning sermon on the horrors […]
