Fresh from holding a rally at South Carolina’s Bob Jones University, a school that infamously tried to use “religious liberty” arguments to defend its racist policies, Ted Cruz is now slated to address a “National Security Forum” at self-proclaimed prophet Rick Joyner’s MorningStar Church in Fort Mill, South Carolina. The Oak Initiative, a conservative group led by Joyner, circulated an email inviting members to the forum over the weekend, which is officially hosted by the South Carolina chapter of Americans for Peace Prosperity and Security and moderated...

Rick Joyner sent out a dire missive to his Oak Initiative email list today, declaring that America's "spiritual and moral deterioration" has become so great that we have now begun a "national meltdown into madness" that can only end with God's brutal judgment falling upon this nation. Fuming that Planned Parenthood has not been shut down and its leader prosecuted for the organization's "heinous crimes," Joyner likened America to Nazi Germany: Once you lose the core moral foundation of the value of life, evil will come pouring through the floodgates...

Rick Joyner sent out an email to members of his Oak Initiative today, warning that a Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality would be a "dress rehearsal" for the Mark of the Beast. "Few events in history have so remarkably fit the biblical scenario of this mark as the potential U.S. Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage," he declared. "As bizarre as this may sound, this is an uncanny parallel to the biblical prophecy." The “abomination of desolation” that was prophesied by Daniel, Jesus, and the first century apostles could have... MORE >

On today's "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, Rick Joyner declared that God is using radical Islam to punish the world for accepting "perversion and abortion." "What is happening with radical Islam rising in the earth is judgment from God against perversion and abortion," Joyner said. "I believe God is using it just the way He used the heathen nations around Israel; whenever Israel fell into apostasy, He would use the heathen nations around Israel to discipline them ... I believe this challenge of Islam all over the world, God is allowing... MORE >

Today, Rick Joyner's Oak Initiative sent out an email to activists asking if the crisis along the southern border just might be God's judgment on America for allowing legal abortion and same-sex marriage. Written by Kenneth L. Carozza, the piece declares that while evangelicals have a lot in common with Catholics, they cannot support calls from Catholic leaders to back immigration reform because Catholics have an ulterior motive: "Rome might see the alien deluge into the U.S. as a quick road to bigger parishes regardless of the form of government that survives." The crisis,... MORE >

Last month the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference announced that it was merging with Conela, a Latin America-based organization, to become “the world’s largest Hispanic Evangelical association” claiming to represent more than 500,000 churches. As Kyle reported, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver had encouraged the NHCLC’s Samuel Rodriguez to expand into Latin America after Staver’s visit to Peru, where he encouraged legislators to resist legal equality for gay people and same-sex couples. The wildly anti-gay Matt Barber, also with Liberty Counsel,... MORE >

If you’re already tired of the Duck Dynasty flap, I have some bad news for you: Religious Right leaders aren’t going to drop it. On Christmas Eve, while millions of Americans were finishing Christmas preparations and gathering with loved ones, Janet Porter and Rick Scarborough were holding an emergency conference call to launch Porter’s latest gimmicky scheme: sending rubber ducks to A&E executives to protest the suspension of Phil Robertson. Porter has been warning about a war on American Christians for years – she even wrote a book called The Criminalization of... MORE >

On yesterday's episode of "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events," Rick Joyner declared that democracy in America has failed and that the nation might not last even to the end of President Obama's term, warning that we are heading for a tyranny from which we can only be saved by a military takeover. "There's no way our republic can last much longer," Joyner said, adding that "we're headed for serious tyranny" because the electoral system is so broken that the leaders we need who can save this nation will never win office. That is why... MORE >
