Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Deacon Duvet Gives Thanks in Pastor Pillow’s Stead

Hello, I’m Deacon Duvet! Welcome to our Thanksgiving Day potluck at Cubic Zirconium Ministries! And my apologies on behalf of Pastor Pillow, who is unable to join us this evening. As you may be aware, he’s been called away to provide political futurism advice (or prophesying, as we call it behind the pulpit) for the […]

Republican Rep. Bill Flores Blames Baltimore Riots On Gay Marriage

If you give a right-wing lawmaker or pundit enough time, he or she can find a way to connect any natural or man-made disaster to either abortion or gay marriage. Whether it’s Michele Bachmann, Pat Robertson or any of the other grifters on the fringes of the conservative movement, their ability to blame anything on […]

Too Bad Louie Gohmert Isn’t Running In 2016. Or Is He?

Rep. Louie Gohmert told The Hill he is weighing a 2016 presidential run in response to a question about Gohmert supporting Ted Cruz. An aide told The Texas Tribune Gohmert was being “ironic.”Louie Gohmert, a man who told a woman she should have stayed pregnant with a brain-dead fetus, just in case, and who got […]

Republican Louie Gohmert Desperately Wants A Holy War With Iran

Remember how I’ve previously said that part of the far right’s love affair with Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel has a lot to do with fulfilling religious prophecies, bringing about the return of Jesus, and not actually caring about people of other faiths? Well, Congressman Louie Gohmert is getting sick and tired of President Obama (who […]

President of Conservative Anti-Gay Group Claims Gays ‘Persecute’ Christians by Using Facebook

Maybe it’s just a sick curiosity, but I would love to be able to spend a day in the minds of some of the people I despise most. There’s just a level of ignorance and stupidity on which some people live that I honestly can’t grasp. And often anti-gay advocates fall into this category. For […]

Did Tony Perkins Just Destroy Chris Christie’s Presidential Campaign?

On Fox News Sunday, Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, compared same-sex marriage to interfamily relationships. Again. Perkins spends a lot of time on cable news programs, spewing his misinformation and hate, but this time he may have done some damage. Not to the LGBT community; to Chris Christie. During his comparison, Perkins […]

Bobby Jindal And Mike Huckabee Court The Religious Right In Iowa

Every time I think Bobby “Stop Being The Stupid Party” Jindal can’t do anything else that would surprise me, he goes and does something else stupid. Just as a reminder, ever since he delivered the post-2012 autopsy on the Republican Party and implored the GOP to “stop being the stupid party,” he’s done little else […]

The Resurrection Of Todd Akin And The End Of The GOP

Guess who’s back, just in time to be the political equivalent of the crazy uncle at Thanksgiving dinner you want to pretend doesn’t exist? Remember Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin who helped make the GOP really unappealing to women in 2012 and handed the Missouri race for US Senate to a Democrat? Yeah, he’s back like […]

Congressman Wants To Establish Business’ Religion Over Employees’ Bodies

When you look at US Congressman James Lankford (R-OK) and read some of his tweets and Facebook updates, you may understand why I cannot stop fancying him as Kenneth the Page or reading him in his voice. He looks like if somebody tried to dress up Kenneth Parcell from 30 Rock to look like a grown-up and failed. Lankford doesn’t […]
