Wingnut on Wingnut Crime: Billy Graham Edition

I and many others noted recently that the Billy Graham Evangelical Association scrubbed their website of material that called Mormonism a cult immediately after Graham endorsed Mitt Romney for president. It seems other noticed it too, including some of his fellow fundies who are very upset about that:

Americans Pretend to Be More Religious Than They Are

In the wake of the recent Pew survey that found about 20% of Americans to be “nones” and about 5% who are atheists or agnostics, NPR has an interesting story that suggests that many people exaggerate the extent of their religiosity on such surveys.

Delgaudio’s Latest Bizarre Claims

Man, Eugene Delgaudio just gets crazier and crazier. The TSA recently announced that they are replacing those “naked” body scanners with new machines that show a more cartoon-like image of your body. For some weird reason, Delgaudio thinks he should get credit for this — and that gay people loved the naked body scanners and …

D’Souza Gets Sued

Poor Dinesh D’Souza. First he’s caught committing adultery, now he’s in legal hot water. His co-producers on that ridiculous documentary 2016 are suing him for breach of contract and other actions and seeking an injunction and monetary damages.

Ooh, Another End Time Prediction

You gotta hand it to those persistent Christian eschatologists. They aren’t going to let a little thing like hundreds of failed predictions of the rapture and the second coming of Christ get in the way of making yet another one. The World Bible Society says it will happen by 2021:

Kuhner: They’re Gonna Burn Us at the Stake!

Jeffrey Kuhner, a columnist for the Moonie Times and a first class nutball, went on Janet Mefferd’s show and struck the persecution pose, claiming that the “gay gestapo” will make sure anyone who criticizes them will be “burnt at the stake” and have their careers destroyed. But first, they engaged in what passes for witty …

Kupelian Makes Predictions

Mycroft Holmes was Sherlock’s even smarter brother; David Kupelian, the #2 guy at the Worldnutdaily, may be Joseph Farah’s even dumber and crazier brother. In his latest bit of lunacy, he’s making predictions about what will happen if Obama is reelected. It’s predictably apocalyptic.

Jackson: Blacks Will Vote Against Obama

Bishop E.W. Jackson, who runs a group called Staying True to America‚Äôs National Destiny (STAND), went on Janet Mefferd’s radio show and absurdly claimed that black Christians are going to vote against Obama in November because he supports gay rights.

Bob Larson Kicks Out a Gay Demon

A few months ago I had a woman on my radio show who had grown up in the inner circle of Bob Larson, the endlessly ridiculous “exorcist” and hater of rock music. Here’s a hilarious video of him “exorcising” the demon of homosexuality from a man. Love the combover and the bad acting.

Hilarious Moonie Times Headline

mooniemourdock

Rev. Moon may be dead but the newspaper he owned, and his family continues to own, is keeping up its drumbeat of dishonesty in the service of right wing authoritarianism. Take a look at the headline on this article about Richard Mourdock’s idiotic claim that rape babies are God’s will and compare it to the …

Romney’s Marriage Equality Etch-a-Sketch

romneygaypledge

Like every other issue, Mitt Romney has been on every side of the marriage equality issue depending on what he thinks is most politically expedient at any given moment.

The Difficulty of Hearing Your Own Voice

Probably the single most common thing said to me by people who meet me for the first time is some variation of “you’d be a perfect radio host, you have the perfect voice for it.” But when I hear my own voice, I don’t particularly like the way my voice sounds. Matt Soniak attempts to …

Dumbass Quote of the Day

The response from Republicans to President Obama’s absolutely accurate belittling of Romney’s moronic claim about the size of the Navy has been quite amusing to watch. Paul Ryan feigned ignorance and said he just couldn’t imagine what it means. But Marco Rubio knows what it means; it means Obama hates the troops. Or something. “I …
