Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow Wines and Dines all the Presidential Elephants

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! Thank you for joining me this evening at Kiawah Island Golf Resort’s Ocean Room.  I realize everyone is surprised to see one another again so soon after that grueling Charleston debate.  Governor Christie, now-now, no stink-eye stare at Dr. Carson.  Here, have some North Carolina osetra imperial caviar before you gobble […]

There’s No Difference Between Phil Robertson And The Westboro Baptist Church

Phil Robertson, poster child for right-wing fringe, reality show star, and hater of all things not fundamentalist Christian-y, gave another speech last Friday. Speaking at a prayer breakfast in Vero Beach, Florida, Robertson created a hypothetical situation involving the rape of two children, the decapitation of a mother, and the castration of a father. The […]

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson Gives Absurd CPAC Speech Showcasing True Conservative Ignorance

Something I’ve always joked about is that my life would be much simpler if I was just a conservative. Instead of trying to understand science or deciphering complex problems to come up with rational solutions, I could just blindly applaud gibberish and nonsense as long as it was filled with plenty of conservative talking points […]

The Supreme Court Signals The End Of The Gay Marriage Battle

Despite other horrible rulings like Citizens United, the Supreme Court has just given us a pretty clear message that it intends to end the battle over gay marriage during this term. The ruling, which is expected this summer, would put an end to the remaining state laws which prohibit same-sex couples from getting married. Much […]

Bobby Jindal Embarrasses Himself In Europe With Retracted Fox News Story

Living in Louisiana has some perks. Not freezing to death in the winter like my friend Erin Nanasi is doing right now, or having to shovel snow, or slipping and sliding on icy roadways. Right about now, at least a couple of restaurants nearby are firing up their boiling pots for a busy Sunday of […]

GOP House Candidate Has Disgusting Theory For What Caused Sandy Hook Shooting

I guess ignorance runs in the family. GOP House candidate Zach Dasher, nephew of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, apparently knows exactly what caused the horrific Sandy Hook shooting in 2012. Atheists. Just three days following the shooting, Dasher said, “He was made in the image of God. But somewhere along the way he believed what the atheist […]

The Problem With Political Celebrities

Almost on a daily basis, we see people who are not actual politicians make outrageous statements in what can only be seen as a blatant attempt to keep their name in the limelight. Whether it is a former half-term governor and failed vice presidential candidate from Alaska or brief political prop from the 2008 election, […]

New Video: Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson Compares Homosexuals to Thieves and Adulterers, Defends Previous Anti-Gay Comments

Nothing says good “Christian” values quite like listing a bunch of people you personally think will spend an eternity in burning in hell.  Especially on Easter of all days, the day when people are supposed to be honoring the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  You know, the individual who told people not to judge one another. […]

Bobby Jindal 2016: Doubling Down On Stupid

As the Republican Party scrambles quickly to re-brand itself as a more centrist, big tent party ahead of the midterms and 2016, there are politicians like Bobby Jindal who are doubling down on stupid. It was announced yesterday that Governor “Bobby” Jindal would appear on the season premiere of – you guessed it – “Duck […]

Why Aren’t the Duck Dynasty/Phil Robertson Hypocrites Rushing to Donald Sterling’s Defense?

It’s always an interesting time when politics and pop culture mix.  We saw it during the Duck Dynasty/Phil Robertson controversy back in December and when Bill Nye debated Ken Ham in February.  But, of course, the most recent story that’s developed has been Donald Sterling’s incredibly racist comments. And, as expected, most Republicans have come out […]
