Fischer: Michael Brown Was ‘Hyped Up on Marijuana’

From the Department of Utter Cluelessness: Bryan Fischer says it’s perfectly understandable that the police officer shot Michael Brown 6 times because Brown had marijuana in his system, so he was “hyped up” on it and probably looking to kill someone. Because that’s totally what pot does to you.

Wiles and Shoebat, Together at Last

Rick Wiles, the Christian fascist radio show host, had fake “ex-terrorist” Walid Shoebat on his show this week and the results were predictably idiotic. Obama is a jihadist, blah blah blah, he’s using gay rights and ISIS (which he’s in favor of, despite bombing the shit out of them) to destroy America. Stop me if you’ve heard this bullshit before.

Linda Harvey: Ban Gay Pride Parades

As I’ve noted before, even by Christian right standards Linda Harvey is a serious and virulent anti-gay bigot, up there with Scott Lively and others. In an interview with Jan Markell’s Understanding the Times radio show, she said that the government should ban gay pride parades because men wear lipstick and feather boas.

Klayman: Obama and Holder are ‘Racist’

Larry Klayman, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Mat Staver, published his weekly Worldnetdaily column on Saturday and, even by his own low standards, it’s amazingly stupid. It seems that Obama’s tepid and mostly meaningless response to the shooting of Michael Brown has proven him to be a racist who hates white people (including his own mother and grandmother, one presumes).

An Interview With an Ex-Jihadi

Saif Rahman has an interview in the Telegraph with a man who used to be a reactionary, fundamentalist Muslim and a jihadi. That man is now an atheist and his identity is not given because he fears reprisals from his former compatriots. A lot of what he says is very revealing now that he has realized how tragically wrong he was.

Archbishop Demands Censorship of Satanists

A group of Satanists is planning to enact a “black mass” at the civic center in Oklahoma City next month and Catholic Archbishop Paul Coakley is demanding that the city prevent them from doing so because it’s offensive to him. And he seems to be baffled as to why the city has not done so. Here’s a letter he released:

Risen Calls Obama Enemy of a Free Press

President Obama may have condemned the arrest of journalists by the police in Ferguson, Missouri, but James Risen, a reporter facing prison for refusing to name a CIA source, says that in reality he is the “greatest enemy to press freedom in a generation.” Risen has been harassed by the federal government for nearly a decade now because he has broken so many stories that have made it look bad.

Goldberg: Obama Would Appoint ‘Lesbian Transgender Poet’

Jonah Goldberg, only the second most pathetic editor at the National Review (Rich Lowry seeing starbursts when Sarah Palin winked at him means he’ll never relinquish that title as long as he lives), went on Fox News and reacted to President Obama urging people to keep the Senate in Democratic hands for potential Supreme Court appointments. Here’s what Obama said:

Land and Mills Lie Through Their Teeth

Richard Land used to head the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, but his own ethics apparently do not prevent him from lying. Same for Gene Mills of the Louisiana Family Forum. On Tony Perkins’ radio show, they falsely claimed that non-discrimination ordinances have criminalized Christian speech.
