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'

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 >

Glenn Beck, who has spent months openly attacking Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, John Kasich, Donald Trump and the entire GOP, is now asking the RNC to allow his network to host a GOP primary debate in February. Bad news for Andrew Shirvell: "The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from a former lawyer for the state of Michigan who lost a defamation lawsuit filed by a gay student at the University of Michigan." Liberty University appears to be relaxing some elements of its hardline code of conduct for students. Beware of the "... MORE >

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, spoke on Monday morning at Liberty University. Liberty was founded by Jerry Falwell and has, under his son’s leadership, grown to be a huge and influential part of the Religious Right’s cultural infrastructure. The school has a tradition of drawing attention to itself by inviting politicians to its mandatory student convocations. Sanders stated upfront and unapologetically that he is pro-choice and pro-gay and that he knew most of the people in the audience disagreed with him about that. His... MORE >

Recently, Rena Lindevaldsen, Liberty University Law School's interim dean, delivered an address to students on the question "Do Government Officials Have Authority to Impose Their Morals on Others?" Lindevaldsen's answer was a resounding "yes," provided that the morals being imposed are Christian ones. But if the morals being imposed are not Christian ones, then the answer is obviously "no." As she explained, "civil government only has the authority that God has established" and so "civil government, if it's acting rightfully within its... MORE >

Josh Duggar, who recently resigned from his post with the Family Research Council after it was revealed that he sexually abused several girls as a minor, recently withdrew from speaking at a homeschooling convention in Sandusky, Ohio. However, Duggar is still scheduled to speak at the ALIVE Festival in Mineral City, Ohio, an event sponsored by Liberty University and other Christian organizations, to discuss how “the Bible is the owner’s manual for life.” Prominent evangelist Ray Comfort also told fans in a Facebook post that he will boycott TLC if the network dares to drop...
