Hagee: Celebrate Christmas or Leave the Country

John Hagee preached a pre-Christmas sermon in which he said that “if you pass a manger scene and someone is singing ‘Joy To The World,’ you can take your Walkman and stuff it into your ears, or you can call your lawyer, or you can just exercise your right to leave the country; planes are …

Rafael Cruz’ BS American History

As Right Wing Watch points out, Rafael Cruz is now just repeating David Barton’s bullshit about the founding fathers, Christianity and the Constitution. He says that the Declaration of Independence is little more than a collection of sermons (what?) and that over half of the signers of the Declaration were “seminary graduates” and “theologians.” That …

Another ‘Witch’ Killed in Africa

The horrifying trend of people in African countries killing others after accusing them of being “witches” continues with this story of two men in Zimbabwe killing an 81-year old man because they thought he had killed their uncle through his use of “witchcraft.”

Dr. Oz: Brain Scans Prove ‘Psychic’ is Genuine

Dr. Oz continues his descent into being a colossal fraud with a recent episode in which he brought on another quack doctor to do a brain scan on “psychic” con woman Teresa Caputo (the “Long Island Medium”) and “prove” that her “psychic” powers are real and true while she performs incredibly bad cold readings. Steven …

Becket Fund: Equality an ‘Affront’ to Religious Liberty

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty has actually done some good work on behalf of genuine religious freedom, but much of the time they are as ridiculous as Liberty Counsel or the ACLJ. Especially when they hand out awards like the one they just sent out this press release about:

Chaz Stevens, Please STFU

chazstevens

I agree completely with Hemant in his criticism of Chaz Stevens, the Florida atheist who got that Festivus pole made of beer bans put up next to a nativity scene at the state capitol and other places. Not for the Festivus poles but for an unhinged and moronic rant he videotaped himself giving in front …

Japanese Prime Minister Angers China, South Korea

The Japanese Prime Minster has created a minor international incident by visiting a Shinto shrine to dead Japanese soldiers from World War II. China and South Korea are apparently a bit sensitive to such symbolic visits for various reasons. But it’s the prime minister’s response to the whole thing that has me amused:

John Bolton’s Macho Foreign Policy

John Bolton, the far-right’s go-to guy on foreign policy, has a list of President Obama’s foreign policy “failures” that reveals much about the right-wing view of that subject. The psychological roots of that view, it seems to me, are found in typical American male psychology.

Bryan Fischer Award Nominee: Joseph Farah

The Bryan Fischer award is given to those who display a staggering lack of self-awareness, accusing their opponents of displaying their own worst traits. But rarely does someone engage in such behavior quite as blatantly as Joseph Farah of the Worldnetdaily, who accuses Joe Conason of being an “activist working undercover as a journalist.” The …

The ACA and the ‘Gay Agenda’

The Worldnetdaily has a new series of articles written by Jerome Corsi that makes the dog-whistle argument that the Obama administration is using the Affordable Care Act to help those dirty people with AIDS (HIV, actually; most do not progress to AIDS these days if they’re on medication). It starts with this bizarre note from …

Wingnuts: We Must Celebrate Christmas Because ‘Pluralism’

With the House having done virtually nothing but take useless votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act, a group of wingnuts in that chamber finally found something important to do: Adopt a non-binding resolution in favor of Christmas. Next they’ll be adopting a resolution in favor of kind grandmothers. But this is important, don’t you …

Police Cameras Work Brilliantly

This is a few weeks old but very much worth highlighting. The city of Rialto, California has, for the last couple years, been requiring all police officers to wear cameras on their uniform and record every interaction with the public on duty. The results have been exactly what we would expect:

Vexatious Litigant Sues Over Duck Dynasty

Move over, Larry Klayman and Orly Taitz. Chris Sevier, who apparently lives in Nashville but claims to go to the same church as the Duck Dynasty douchebag, has filed a lawsuit against the A&E network, GLAAD and President Obama over the suspension of the guy for bigoted comments.

Farah on the True Meaning of Christmas

Joseph Farah’s Worldnetdaily has been simultaneously publishing articles that say Christmas is a pagan holiday and that there is a war on Christmas. But in a Christmas Eve (not Christmas Steve) column he says that the real story of Christmas is how Jesus gave up his omniscience so he could shit his diapers. Or something.

Tom DeLay: Voice of Morality

Former Speaker of the House Tom DeLay, freed from trouble over corruption charges by a Texas appeals court, has a new book coming out in which he jumps on the Tea Party bandwagon whole hog. And he’s spouting all kinds of nonsense that will appeal to the rubes.
