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 >

Rick Joyner has traditionally been a rather low-key speaker, the sort who does not get particularly worked-up or animated about anything. But that was certainly not the case in this recent sermon he delivered in response to the Boston Marathon bombing where he declared that the federal government should have been able to prevent the attack but were hampered due to infiltration by Muslim Brotherhood operatives into high-ranking official positions. The failure to stop the attack, Joyner said, means that the blood of the victims is on the hands of the Department of Homeland Security and was... MORE >

Mat Staver claims that allowing three parents to be listed on a birth certificate is outrageous and means that "polygamy ... has occurred in Florida." Of course, these three people didn't get married to one another, so Staver is lying. If Phyllis Schlafly is going to convince people that early voting is bad, she needs to come up with better reasons because these are laughable. It has gotten to the point where Bryan Fischer's bigotry is so predictably redundant, that it is barely even worth mentioning any more. It looks like Rick Scarborough's Vision... MORE >

Yesterday, Rick Joyner dedicated his "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program to discussing the re-election of President Obama ... which he is pretty sure was stolen. Citing a 2006 paper from Princeton University revealing that electronic voting machines could be easily hacked, Joyner declared that he has heard lots of anecdotal evidence about voting machines changing votes cast for Mitt Romney and giving them to Barack Obama. On top of that, Joyner is sure that the implementation of Voter ID laws in Indiana and North Carolina was instrumental in swinging those... MORE >

Last weekend, Rick Joyner delivered an election sermon that is so "vitally important" that he felt compelled to post it on YouTube so that everyone can watch as he tells his congregation that they cannot vote for President Obama because America is on the verge of heading into "the worst, most terrible form of tyranny there has ever been seen on this earth" and that "an Obama re-election could be the end of our republic as we know it." After proclaiming that Obama was engaging in tyranny and was either grossly incompetent or treasonous, Joyner declared... MORE >
