The right-wing outlet Charisma Magazine ran a story today about states that still have religious tests for people holding public office, even though they are not enforced. “With the never-ending battle in our culture atheists bring against Christians, will [sic] the bans may soon be altogether removed,” writes Gina Meeks, Charisma’s assistant editor. The magazine’s website posted the story on its front page with the subtitle: “This is good news for a Judeo-Christian America, but will the bans last?” MORE >

Charisma pundit Raynard Jackson warns today that homosexuality and immigration are hurting African American men, and only white female right-wing commentators like Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham can save the black community by fighting President Obama. Seriously. Black women constantly complain about the dearth of "eligible" black men to date and marry. Noted sociologist William Julius Wilson has argued that "the increasing levels of non-marriage and female-headed households is a manifestation of the high levels of economic dislocation experienced by lower-class black men in...

Charisma new editor Jennifer LeClaire is upset that Honey Maid’s gay-inclusive TV ad is “trying to shove something down my throat for which I have no taste,” writing in a column today that she will “pray for those whose hand may be caught in the cookie jar of sexual immorality when Jesus returns.” LeClaire also complains that the graham cracker company responded to critics by hiring two “lesbians [to] glue together the complaints to spell out the word ‘love’ in cursive.” Nowhere in the response ad – or anywhere else that we can...

While George Washington’s religious faith is to this day a matter of debate, Charisma is out with an article by pastor Eddie Hyatt insisting that Washington was an evangelical Christian just like Charisma readers. Hyatt recycles the dubious Valley Forge prayer story and also cites prayers found in a supposed journal from a twenty-year-old Washington that historians regard as “patently false.” Not only does Hyatt cite discredited tales and fake quotes, but he actually mentions Washington’s ownership of over 300 slaves as proof that he was a...

In a column for Charisma today, conservative activist Michael Brown says he was too smart to fall for a hoax article about a middle school that “requires children to cross dress”…. but then goes ahead and cites another bogus story about transgender harassment in a Colorado school. Apparently, an article about a Maryland school that mandates cross-dressing has gone viral, even though it came from the satirical National Report. Brown defended those who mistook the article for a real news story, calling it “a case of fiction being frighteningly close to truth.” He... MORE >

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor recently conducted a wedding at the Supreme Court for Jeffrey Trammell and Stuart Serkin, and Charisma magazine is warning that as a result divine retribution is right around the corner. Charisma posted a Reuters article by Lawrence Hurley and gave it the title: “Is Judgment Far Off? Gay Wedding Ceremonies Taking Place at US Supreme Court.” The magazine asked readers to “sound off” by responding to the question: “Is this a prophetic sign of the state of our nation? Does it bother you that gay weddings are... MORE >

The Religious Right magazine Charisma described an Episcopalian reverend’s condemnation of homophobia as an “anti-Christ message” that is corrupting Christianity: “A new, heretical, sin-affirming Christianity is spreading like a virus. How should we respond to the rise of these anti-Christ messages?” Charisma’s Jennifer LeClaire, who regularly writes anti-gay columns for the outlet, criticized the Very Rev. Gary Hall of the National Cathedral has an apostate “caught in the snare of deception, even heresy”: “We must now have the courage... MORE >

Anti-gay activists are furious that Gov. Chris Christie signed into law a bill barring ex-gay therapy for minors, and pastor Larry Tomczak penned an open letter to the New Jersey governor in his Charisma magazine blog. Tomczak, upset about Christie’s “unconscionable” decision to “capitulate to the gay agenda,” said the governor should reflect on his own “battle with overeating and endangering your health through poor nutritional choices” and realize that he shouldn’t affirm the gay “lifestyle” and its “frightening consequences...
