Boston, Chicago Go Off the Rails on Chick-Fil-A

Christian Sees Angel in Clouds

Well this was predictable. Whenever there’s some tragic event, you can count on a hyper-emotional Christian to find something to turn into a sign from God, even if they have to invent it out of whole cloth. Here’s a perfect example from the Aurora shootings:

Bryan Fischer throws a delightful little temper tantrum here:

A 10 judge en banc panel has ruled that a public high school cannot hold their graduation ceremonies in …

Boykin: Military the ‘Last Bastion of Morality’

Unhinged nutball and retired general Jerry Boykin is now the executive vice president of the Family Research Council and he joined his new boss, uber-bigot Tony Perkins, on the radio to declare that Obama is actively trying to undermine the U.S. military because it’s the “last bastion of morality and ethics” in the country.
