Meet My Campaign Manager, Mr. Holy Spirit

Unhinged anti-gay bigot Scott Lively is running for governor of Massachusetts as an independent, where he is expected to win literally tens of votes for the office. But he is not afraid because his campaign manager is the holy spirit itself, whose previous work was limited to making people babble in tongues and knocking up young women in ancient Palestine.

Gheen: Terrorists Not Attacking Because They Love Obama

William Gheen, the virulently racist head of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, has a rather bizarre theory for his followers (who are the type that really go for bizarre theories). He’s just sure that terrorists are pouring through the Mexican border, but they’re not attacking because — wait for it — they just love what Obama is doing.

Crouse Thinks Jihadists are Right About America

Janice Shaw Crouse, who evidently is no longer with Concerned Women for America after a disagreement over whether to attend an anti-gay conference in Moscow, writes a column at the badly misnamed American Thinker website that combines lies and terrible reasoning to conclude that the Muslim jihadists are right when they say America is weak and corrupt because gays have begun to be treated like human beings. The first sentence is a lie:

Geraghty: Obama Responsible for Everything Bad

Jim Geraghty, a columnist for the National Review Online, seems to think that President Obama is responsible for every single scandal or problem that has happened anywhere in the country for the last few years while he’s been in office, from the NFL’s handling of domestic violence to car company recalls. Why? Because he “set the tone” that allowed them to happen.

Nones Less Likely to Prioritize Their Own Discrimation

A new Pew survey has some fascinating findings about how different demographic groups perceive who is and is not discriminated against in society. This is particularly true of white evangelical Christians, who think their own group is the second most likely to face discrimination (53% acknowledge anti-gay discrimination, 50% think white evangelicals face discrimination; no other group reaches 50%, including blacks at 36%).

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Newt Gingrich of France

It turns out that the United States isn’t the only country where hypocritical politicians decry the destruction of the sanctity of their multiple marriages, including the ones they cheated on their previous spouses with. The former president of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, is back in politics and saying dumb things about same-sex marriage too.

The Hypocrisy of Father Jonathan Morris

Father Jonathan Morris is a Catholic priest and Fox News contributor. He recently freaked out about a “black mass” in Oklahoma City and demanded that the government prevent it from happening “in the name of free speech.” But like so many Christian righters, he claims to be an advocate of religious freedom.

Fake ‘Ex-Terrorist': ISIS Part of the Gay Agenda

One of the truly bizarre claims we hear from the Christian right is that gay people are somehow in league with Muslim fundamentalists who want them dead (and vice versa). It’s the kind of claim that should result in people pointing and laughing at you wherever you go for the rest of your life, but it pays handsomely on Planet Wingnuttia. Fake “ex-terrorist” Walid Shoebat is the latest to make this moronic claim.

Fischer: Force Immigrants to Become Christians

Bryan Fischer burnished his credentials as a Christian fascist by demanding that the United States do immigration “God’s way” and force all immigrants to convert to Christianity before entering the country. Remember, when ISIS forces people to convert or die, it’s an outrage. When Christians do it, it’s just God’s way.

Klayman Calls for Military Coup Against Obama

Larry Klayman, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Mat Staver, was on an American Family Association radio show with Tim Wildmon on Monday and he called for the military to rise up and remove President Obama from power. At what point is this open sedition? At what point do they start arresting people for this?

Robertson: Bible Violence Totally Different From Quran Violence

Pat Robertson displayed the hypocrisy and idiocy that we’ve all come to expect from him in response to a viewer who asked about the differences between violence in the Bible and violence in the Quran. His simpleminded explanation: The Bible is from God, while the Quran is from Allah. So I guess that explains it.
