Lane Demands Mandatory Prayer in Schools

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 …

Beck Website Promotes Ron Paul Curriculum

Glenn Beck’s The Blaze website has an article about the Ron Paul Curriculum, which promises to teach homeschooling parents and students “get an education in liberty like no other.” Given that the curriculum is being developed by Gary North, the nation’s leading Christian Reconstructionist, you can be sure that “liberty” is being defined in an …

Klingenschmitt: American Law Should Follow God’s Law

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 …

The God and Government Project

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:

Steven Anderson on Irish Radio

Hemant linked to this Youtube video of Pastor Steven Anderson, the fascist Arizona minister who gets up every morning, picks up his wife and carries her across the room just to remind her that he’s bigger and stronger and can make her do whatever he wants. It’s long but chock full of crazy.

Reconstructionist Calls for Christian Martyrdom

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. Didn’t First Things used to be a fairly mainstream Christian intellectual publication? Not if they’re publishing stuff like this.

California State Sen. Mimi Walters (R) is going to run for the open seat in California vacated by retiring Rep. John Campbell and she has been funded in her political career by a name that may be familiar to my longtime readers, Howard Ahmanson Jr.

PA Republicans Use ‘God’s Law’ to Silence Colleague

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 …

The Theocratic ‘Ron Paul Curriculum’

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?

Fischer Demands Theocracy

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 …

Keyes on the 9th Amendment

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 …

Fischer Presents Standard Theocratic Vision

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 …

Lively: Uganda a Model for the World

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 Overwhelming Irony of Roy Moore

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:

Santorum’s Bizarre Notion of Liberty

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 …
