In August of last year, shortly after the Supreme Court handed down the landmark Obergefell marriage equality ruling, televangelist Pat Robertson discussed the ruling with Steve Strang, the founder of the Pentecostal magazine Charisma, on his podcast. Robertson warned that “the homosexuals don’t want equality, they don’t want equal treatment, what they want is to destroy everybody who disagrees with them.” He predicted that there will be “a vendetta” against “any organization that disagrees with homosexuality,” saying that “what was done...

Frank Amedia, a pastor who says he is serving in a volunteer capacity as Donald Trump’s “Christian policy” liaison, said last month that God told him last year that Trump would win the GOP nomination and that he believes Trump has been “raised up” to help pave the way for the Second Coming. Amedia spoke with Steve Strang, the founder of the Pentecostal magazine Charisma, on Strang’s podcast on the day Donald Trump effectively won the Republican presidential nomination; the podcast was posted online last week. Amedia told Strang that he was praying about... MORE >

Upon hearing the news that 13 bald eagles were found dead at a Maryland farm, pastor Ricky Scaparo took to Charisma News to discuss “the prophetic warning behind the death of 13 bald eagles.” According to Scaparo, the number 13 signifies that God is speaking to America and is angry about abortion rights and “legalized abominations”: When I saw this story breaking I saw so much symbolism in this for America. Let me explain. The national symbol for America is the eagle and the Thirteen Colonies, founded in the 16th and 17th centuries, declared independence in 1776 and... MORE >

Just after John Oliver’s pointed take on “prosperity” televangelists, Bishop T.D. Jakes, a Dallas-based megachurch pastor, best-selling author and media personality once described by TIME magazine as possibly “the next Billy Graham,” launches a four-week test run of a new daily talk show today. But Jakes has spent much of the last two weeks responding to a backlash from conservative evangelical Christians over comments he made about gay rights and church-state separation. During an August 3 Huffington Post Live interview with journalist and scholar Marc... MORE >

In an online video congratulating the Religious Right magazine Charisma on its 40th anniversary last week, televangelist Pat Robertson delivered a rather dire warning for America, claiming that “we are confronting right now a tide of evil that is like nothing that any of us have seen before.” “We have a government that is set about bringing upon iniquity, we have courts that have distorted the Constitution and have turned our moral values on their ear,” he said. “Who would’ve thought, 30 or 40 years ago when we began, that the Supreme Court would’ve...

Os Hillman, the right-wing preacher behind the dominionist “Reclaiming the Seven Mountains” website, took to Charisma magazine today to ask the question that has been on everyone’s minds: “ Is God using Donald Trump to wake up the nation?” “Only God knows the answer to that,” Hillman vaguely concludes, while suggesting that Trump through his “prophetic voice” may be the American equivalent of King Cyrus, the Persian ruler who liberated the Jews. Hillman writes that “God is using” Trump “to uncover the veil of the current... MORE >

Jeremiah Johnson, “a gifted teacher, book author, and prophetic minister,” writes this week in Charisma magazine’s “Prophetic Insight” blog that God is using Donald Trump to speak the truth to American public. In a post first flagged by Warren Throckmorton, Johnson likened Trump to King Cyrus, who freed Jews from captivity in Babylon, saying that the GOP presidential candidate, like Cyrus, is a spokesman for God. And Johnson knows this for a fact because God told him so: “I was in a time of prayer several weeks ago when God began to speak to me concerning... MORE >

Yesterday, the Drudge Report ran the following headline: “Pope Francis Antichrist? Stand on Islam, capitalism, New World Order fuel chatter….” Matt Drudge linked to a post on the matter by Jennifer LeClaire, the Charisma news editor who issues “prophetic” warnings about how gays are possessed by demons and will work with Satan to ban straight marriage. LeClaire cited a report about the Pope trying to merge Islam and Christianity from a site, washingtonpost.com.co — not the Washington Post’s actual website — that she admits seems untrustworthy...
