Yet another right wing theocrat who spent years posing as the paragon of moral virtue has been knocked off his pedestal when he got caught cheating on his wife. This time it’s Doug Phillips, perhaps the single most important voice of the Quiverful movement and a genuine Christian Reconstructionist. He has resigned from his position …

David Lane, the Christian right kingmaker of the Republican party, sent an email to his American Renewal Project mailing list seeking ten members of Congress willing to sponsor a bill overturning the Supreme Court cases prohibiting mandatory Bible reading and prayer in public schools. Because if they can’t force people to pray and read the …

Here’s an amusing video of Gordon Klingenschmitt quoting the Bible to support the claim that American law should be based on “God’s law.” Which is, of course, found in the Bible. Gee, the Bible says we should follow the Bible? How shocking. And how utterly irrelevant to what the law should actually say in this …

Longtime readers of this blog may remember my occasional battles with John Lofton, a dyed-in-the-wool theocrat. He is now directing the God and Government Project for the Institute on the Constitution, the same group that school in Ohio invited in to teach a course, which was subsequently canceled. He explains what that is:

Demonstrating yet again how similar Christian Reconstructionists are to Muslim jihadists, Peter Leithart has an article in First Things entitled A Call to Martyrdom, which is exactly what it sounds like.

In the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, time is set aside when the members can take the floor to speak on whatever subject they like (like the U.S. House does with “special order” speeches). But they can be stopped from speaking if just one of their colleagues objects. Look what happened when a gay legislator got …

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? Gary North, the most prominent Christian Reconstructionist in the world. Freedom?

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:
