At last week’s Road To Majority conference sponsored by Ralph Reed’s Faith & Freedom Coalition and Concerned Women for America, anti-gay pundit and Liberty University law school associate dean Matt Barber promoted his new book, “Hating Jesus: The American Left’s War on Christianity.” Barber’s remarks were a typically toxic mix, portraying Christians in America as being under assault from the “secular left, so-called progressives, orthodox Islamists and other pagan traditions, as well as fanatical atheists and others.” Mankind...

In an interview with Liberty University’s student newspaper last week, the school’s president, Jerry Falwell Jr., defended his endorsement of Donald Trump. Falwell, who has compared Trump to Jesus Christ and Martin Luther King Jr., said that conservative Christians who oppose the candidate should remember that “God called King David a man after God’s own heart even though he was an adulterer and a murderer.” He also noted that it “is sad to see Christians attacking other Christians because they don’t support the same candidate or the candidate who...

A New York Times profile today of Franklin Graham and Jerry Falwell Jr., heirs to their respective fathers’ evangelical dynasties, included one very surprising line. Falwell Jr., who is Donald Trump’s most prominent evangelical endorser, took issue with criticism of his preferred candidate: I really believe that anybody on the left or the right that tries to invoke the teachings of Jesus to say they should vote for this candidate or that candidate, I think they’re stretching Scripture. Then, this afternoon, as Trump engaged in a war of words with Pope Francis over the GOP... MORE >

Perhaps South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has been reading too many history books authored by David Barton: “We’ve never in the history of this country passed any laws or done anything based on race or religion. Let’s not start that now.” Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. can’t think of anyone better than Donald Trump to speak to students and “recognize and honor Dr. King on MLK day.” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins says the “evidence” of Obama’s impact is everywhere, “from...

I recently finished reading Princeton history professor Kevin M. Kruse's extremely interesting new book, "One Nation Under God: How Corporate America Invented Christian America," which explains that the Religious Right's claim that America is a Christian nation founded for Christian purposes was a trope first cooked up by right-wing industrialists and preachers back in the 1930s to fight against President Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal policies. Bankrolled by business interests, a "Spiritual Mobilization" effort was organized in the late 1930s for the... MORE >

Liberty University is reportedly a front-runner to host a Republican presidential debate in January. Anti-gay megadonor Sean Fieler finds a friend in Ted Cruz. Rick Joyner says that if he had to vote today, he'd vote for Donald Trump. Gee, what a surprise! Several of the GOP candidates whom Glenn Beck really likes are quite eager to have his network host a debate. Chuck Baldwin warns conservatives to beware of Marco Rubio because he is the "globalist insiders' water boy." Finally, the Family Research Council prays that God will forgive us for Obamacare...

Louie Gohmert Suggests A Congressional Study Putting Gay And Straight Couples On An Island To 'See Which One Nature Favors'
SUBMITTED BY: Kyle Mantyla, Tuesday 11/03/2015, 1:39pm
Last week, Rep. Louie Gohmert delivered the convocation at Liberty University, where he repeated his call for a study in which straight couples and gay and lesbian couples are placed on separate deserted islands in order to prove that homosexuality is unnatural. Gohmert was complaining about the Supreme Court's marriage equality decision and was attempting to make the case that even people who don't believe in God ought to be able to see that same-sex relationships are not natural. "Let's just take a totally secular approach to this," he said. "Congress is good... MORE >
