Another Fake Jefferson Quote From the Christian Right

There is a quote that is often attributed to Albert Einstein, which he probably did not say, to the effect that there are only two infinite things in existence: the universe and human stupidity. Let me suggest that there may be another — fake Jefferson quotes (and, ironically, fake Einstein quotes). Here’s yet another one, in a video put out by Truth (LOL) in Action Ministries:

The Single Dumbest Thing I’ve Ever Read

Readers of this blog know that I document every day the staggeringly inane things said by the Christian right, so believe me when I say that I do not exaggerate when I say that this column at American Thinker is the single dumbest thing I have ever read. It’s so dumb that I suggest that you wear a helmet while reading it lest you give yourself a concussion from your head hitting your desk.

Fox News Can’t Believe We Help Those Who Don’t Speak English

Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, easily the two dumbest men on television, are simply beside themselves at the idea that 911 emergency responders in Texas actually help people who don’t speak English. And they seem to think they’re supposed to determine whether someone is a citizen over the phone.

Gimme That Old Time Klingenschmitt ‘Logic’

Gordon Klingenschmitt has a powerful and compelling argument for why trans women should not be allowed to use the women’s bathroom:

“The Scriptures say in Deuteronomy 23 that he that is wounded in the stones, or hath his privy member cut off, shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord. And if they can’t enter the congregation of the Lord, they certainly shouldn’t be allowed to enter the ladies bathroom.”

Pastor: Gays Possessed by ‘Putrid Smelling Demons’

In one of the most deranged anti-gay columns you’ll ever read, Pastor Bert Ferias of Holy Fires Ministries asks gay people to “please do not get upset with me” for speaking “very plainly and straightforward (sic) about homosexuality.” And then he launches on a long screed that includes this:

Wingnut: 2nd Amendment Purpose to Repel Child Refugees

Jody Hice, the extremely far right House candidate in Georgia, knows what the First Amendment was for — repelling the “invasion” of helpless child refugees. And since the government won’t go down to the border and, presumably, shoot or threaten them, he thinks people should go do it themselves.

Benham Group Disrupts UU Service in New Orleans

Flip Benham’s Operation Save America, one of the most extreme anti-choice organizations in the country, disrupted a service at a Unitarian church in New Orleans this weekend, interrupting a moment of silence for a recently passed church member to shout about “abominations” and the like. They were shown the door. Here’s how Benham’s group described it:

Christian Right Again Argues For Discrimination

Much like the Christian right always argues against a specific court ruling by railing against judicial review itself, it also argues against a specific anti-discrimination restriction by arguing against all such restrictions — but they never actually acknowledge that they’re doing so. Here’s the Family Research Council’s reaction to President Obama forbidding anti-gay discrimination in federal contracting:
