Now that Christian Reconstructionist, secessionist and neo-Confederate Michael Peroutka has won the Republican primary for the Anne Arundel County commission in Maryland, that state’s GOP is having to distance itself from him and his absolutely unhinged views.

Like many other bigots, Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission is seizing on a single poll that shows only about 3% of Americans identify as gay, lesbian or bi to claim that we should be catering to such a tiny minority. Because they’d totally change their mind if it were 10% or 20%. There …

As I’ve noted, Christian Reconstructionist Michael Peroutka is now the Republican nominee for the Anne Arundel County Council in Maryland. And his spokesman is none other than fellow fascist John Lofton, another Reconstructionist, with whom I’ve had some amusing exchanges before.

Republican voters in Anne Arundel County, Maryland have officially nominated a Christian Reconstructionist, secessionist and neo-Confederate as their candidate for the county council.

You may remember the city of Moore, Oklahoma as the site of those terrible tornadoes in 2013 that did horrific damage. Add another disaster to the list, a local candidate for state office who says that gay people should be stoned to death like it says in the Bible.

Christian apologist Frank Turek offers an argument we hear quite often from the Christian right. It’s in the context of same-sex marriage, but we hear it in many other contexts as well, pretty much any time someone is granted a right that they don’t think they ought to have.

Katherine Stewart has an op-ed column in the New York Times about the Supreme Court’s ruling in Greece v Galloway in which she identifies the Christian right’s long-term strategy with that and similar cases. I think her analysis is accurate, if a bit incomplete.

Judge Roy Moore gave one of his typically ignorant speeches at a Pastor for Life Luncheon in Alabama, claiming that the definition of religion in the First Amendment means only Christianity because, “Buddha didn’t create us, Mohammed didn’t create us, it was the God of the Holy Scriptures” and “They didn’t bring the Koran over …

Poor Coach Dave. He’s upset that the small percentage of gay people is “pushing around” the 80% of Christians. He declares that there is no separation of church and state and that the U.S. is, in fact, a theocracy because of “one nation, under God” in the pledge of allegiance.

Matt Barber has Christian Reconstructionists writing for his new website and now Liberty Counsel, the organization he works for, is helping students set up “American Clubs” in secondary schools.
