Christian Mingle, the Movie

If you loved God’s Not Dead as much as I do, you’re gonna love Christian Mingle: The Movie. And no, I didn’t make that up. This is an actual movie that comes out in a couple months about a young woman who pretends to be a Christian to meet a hot guy, then of course gets saved and becomes an actual Christian. Here’s the trailer:

Perkins: How Dare You Criticize Christians Who Discriminate!

Tony Perkins is mad as hell that people are actually criticizing two Pennsylvania businesses, a bridal shop and a bed and breakfast, who have refused to offer their services to gay customers. And he says it’s downright intolerant for gay rights advocates to dare to speak out against such discrimination.

Beck: MO Unrest Could Lead Companies to Move Overseas

In one of the weirder reactions to the race-fueled unrest in Missouri after police shot and killed another unarmed young black man, Glenn Beck says that if Obama doesn’t issue a call for stability, it could lead American companies to move overseas. He said this shortly before Obama issued exactly such a call.

Televangelist Gets All Wound Up

There are few things more amusing to me than when a televangelist con man gets all fired up and lets loose with the big rhetorical guns to coax a bit more cash out of the pockets of his followers. This post from James Robison is about equal parts nonsense, fearmongering and false bravado as he declares himself an eternal warrior who will never back down in the face of the oppression he imagines himself to be suffering. And he’s just beside himself about how badly he’s being treated:

More Christian Nation Nonsense

Eddie Hyatt, the author of this profoundly silly article in Charisma News that echoes most of David Barton’s more absurd claims, calls himself a historian. Like Barton, however, he has no credentials at all in the field (his degrees are in divinity, from Regent University, and “Pentecostal-Charismatic Studies” from Oral Roberts University). Let the ridiculous claims begin:

Adams: People Fleeing Marriage Equality States

Cathie Adams of the Texas Eagle Forum has never been one to let pesky things like facts get in the way of a perfectly good rant, so it was hardly a surprise when, at a recent press conference, she declared that people are fleeing states that have marriage equality and coming to Texas to avoid those icky gay people.

Parshall: ‘Gentleman’ God Sent Ebola

Wingnut extraordinaire Janet Parshall says that the Ebola virus and many violent events are all part of God’s judgment on us. And he “gives us a warning, another warning, another warning, another warning because he is a gentleman God.” Because that’s exactly what a gentleman would do, murder innocent people to send a warning to other people. That’s apparently his definition of being “loving.”

Zieve: Obama to Kill More Than 25 Million Americans

A couple weeks ago I chided Sher Zieve for a weak attempt at an Obama conspiracy in claiming that Obama was going to let in “thousands” of gang members and terrorists. Contrast this with Avi Lipkin, who says Obama is bringing in 50-100 million Muslims into the country. Zieve seems to have accepted my challenge, now claiming that Obama is preparing to kill more than 25 million Americans. It’s published at BarbWire, which appears to have no standards at all for what columns they’ll publish.

AHA Warns Schools About Religious Proselytizing in Football Programs

The American Humanist Association’s Apignini Humanist Legal Center has sent a letter to two high schools in Georgia where the football coaches are allegedly violating the Establishment Clause by using their position to promote Christianity by praying with students and quoting the Bible on team documents.
