Fundamentalist Christians often believe some loony things, but so do fundamentalist Muslims. The Salafi Center of Manchester, for example, says that mermaids are real and they are halal, so they can be eaten if you catch one. Yes, I’m serious.

I’m not sure who the guy in this video is, but he appears to be entirely serious. He’s analyzing the now-infamous Gangnam Style video, which he says is a message directly from God about the nature of the Anti-Christ. And it apparently reveals that the Anti-Christ had a gay relationship with the False Prophet. If …

We’ve all seen those bumper stickers that say “God is my co-pilot,” but this woman from Florida seems to have taken that a bit too seriously. After being pulled over and arrested for driving 100 mph while blowing her horn, she told the police that she was only doing what God commanded her to do:

Charisma magazine has a hilariously idiotic article that says demons can make you gay — not just by possessing you, but by actually having sex with you. Because apparently they think that incubi and succubi are real entities. And apparently, they’re really good in bed too:

The Family Research Council hosted a lecture at their offices in Washington, DC by Owen Strachan, a professor at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary’s undergrad school, Boyce College. Strachan claimed that there was a “new Christian conservatism” being led by young people. See if you can decipher this gibberish:

You gotta hand it to those persistent Christian eschatologists. They aren’t going to let a little thing like hundreds of failed predictions of the rapture and the second coming of Christ get in the way of making yet another one. The World Bible Society says it will happen by 2021:

A few months ago I had a woman on my radio show who had grown up in the inner circle of Bob Larson, the endlessly ridiculous “exorcist” and hater of rock music. Here’s a hilarious video of him “exorcising” the demon of homosexuality from a man. Love the combover and the bad acting.

David Barton thinks the Bible says something about absolutely every issue, so much so that he’s willing to take staggering leaps of logic to draw connections that just aren’t there. And on his radio show recently he predicted that science would discover that salt is good for you because the Bible says it is:

Well here’s an amusing turn of events. Dinesh D’Souza, champion of Christian values, is caught up in a sexual scandal that is getting noticed by the Christian media. It seems that he’s been following the example of so many religious right types before him:

I’m sure many of you are familiar with the now-infamous Sokal hoax, in which physicist Alan Sokal submitted an article to a postmodernist journal that was, quite literally, gibberish — they accepted it for publication, of course. Now a Belgian philosopher has pulled a similar hoax on two theology conferences.

You may remember the arrest of Grant Storms, a virulently anti-gay pastor from Louisiana who routinely engaged in protests against gay rights in New Orleans, for allegedly masturbating near a public park. Well you can drop the “allegedly.” He’s been convicted:

The Awl has a list of some of the other things that Todd Akin believes about the human uterus, which is apparently a magical organ with many fascinating properties. We need to start teaching these in sex education classes:

Thomas Nelson, one of the largest Christian publishers in the country, pulled the plug on Barton’s book because, they say, it contained inaccuracies. But Right Wing Watch has a rather amusing post that looks at some of the other books that Thomas Nelson has published, which they apparently think are more credible than Barton’s book. …

Okay, this may be the funniest and most pathetic thing you’ll watch all week. Some dumbfuck bigot decided to protest against General Mills supporting marriage equality by setting a box of Cheerios on fire, but he ended up torching the company’s front lawn instead and then had to stomp it out.

When all this controversy broke out over Chick-Fil-A’s support for anti-gay bigotry, I was a bit baffled; I’d never even seen such a restaurant, much less eaten at one. I didn’t even know they existed. The Onion has now written an amusing satire on their introduction of a new homophobic sandwich:
