Ron Paul has just announced that he is developing a curriculum for use by homeschooling parents. He says this will teach young people to believe in freedom, yet guess who is working as the Director of Curriculum Development for this project?

On a recent show, Bryan Fischer argues that the Bible ought to be the basis for all of our laws, meaning that adultery and pornography should be illegal. And he argues that “you sleep with my wife, you’ve infringed on my liberty, my friend. That’s why adultery ought to be against the law, you’re taking …

The 9th Amendment is my favorite provision in the Constitution because it establishes the idea that the scope of individual rights is essentially limitless (which is not the same thing as saying that there can be no limit on those rights, only that it is impossible to make a list of all the rights a …

Bryan Fischer presented the primary argument in favor of theocracy on his radio show this week. It goes like this: Rights come from God and the Bible says God is against certain things. Therefore, no one has a right to do anything that is condemned in the Bible. I suggest Fischer be arrested the next …

As the Ugandan legislature seems poised to finally pass a law that allows the government to murder not only gay people but anyone who repeatedly argues for their equality, the president of Uganda has officially declared his nation to be a Christian one:

The Worldnutdaily did an interview with Roy Moore, who was once again elected to be the chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court this month. There’s so much irony in this article that if you sat it on your desk, it would point to the north pole. Like this:

Rick Santorum spoke at a prayer gathering this past weekend and made one of the most bizarre statements I’ve ever heard about the founding fathers and religion. He actually claims that when the Declaration of Independence says that we have an unalienable right to the pursuit of happiness, they only meant that we have the …

One of the most virulently anti-gay and staunchly theocratic members of the House may be moving to the Senate. Todd Akin won the Republican nomination to challenge Sen. Claire McCaskill for her seat in November. Akin is a leading member of The Family and, as Right Wing Watch reports, one of the most far right …

Julie Ingersoll notes that Kirk Cameron is working more and more with Christian Reconstructionists to promote his movie Monumental and his vision of an officially Christian America. That movie was co-produced by Reconstructionist Marshall Foster, but that’s only the beginning:

Libby Anne shows the many connections between Kirk Cameron and Doug Phillips of Vision Forum, an openly theocratic group with a seriously twisted idea of Christian patriarchy that seeks complete control of women by men. She writes:

Rick Santorum claims, like nearly all conservatives, to be in favor of “smaller government.” That is a lie, of course, as he continues to prove every day that he advocates more and more restrictions on private morality in the name of his twisted religious views. And here he is in 2003 flatly declaring that there …

You knew it was only a matter of time before bigoted lunatic Bryan Fischer turned his empty rhetorical guns on Jessica Ahlquist and started calling her names. After all, he thinks this country should be for Christians only and she’s not one of them, so she must be bad.

Alan Keyes is easily one of the most entertaining figures in politics. He’s got tremendous charisma and talent as a speaker, but his eloquence is used to support some of the craziest ideas imaginable. But this quote from his latest WND column made me laugh:

Newt Gingrich has won the endorsement of yet another first class religious right whacko, this time the self-declared “apostle” Dutch Sheets, one of the leaders of the dominionist New Apostolic Reformation. Gingrich has named him vice-chair of his “faith leaders coalition.” And this guy is seriously nuts.

Warren Throckmorton reveals something that I’m surprised I didn’t know (or perhaps I did at one point and forgot about it), that Gary North used to work for Ron Paul. Gary North is the son-in-law of RJ Rushdoony, the founder of Christian Reconstructionism, and probably the most prominent living advocate of that barbaric ideology.
