David Barton’s WallBuilders is tireless in pushing its “Christian nation” version of American history. Today it encourages its supporters to “Celebrate Columbus Day!” and to read John Eidsmoe’s Columbus and Cortez: Conquerors for Christ. Eidsmoe is the Christian Reconstructionist cited by Michele Bachmann as her mentor and major influence. He is also a colleague of Roy Moore, who lost his job as Chief Justice of Alabama’s Supreme Court when he refused to obey federal court orders to remove a Ten Commandments memorial he had... MORE >

Ryan Lizza has a long profile in the new issue of The New Yorker in which he explains that "Bachmann's views have been shaped by institutions, tracts, and leaders not commonly known to secular Americans, or even to most Christians" and that "her campaign is going to be a conversation about a set of beliefs more extreme than those of any American politician of her stature." As Lizza explains, one of the people who played a key role in shaping Bachmann's views was John Eidsmoe, her professor at Oral Roberts Univeristy: At Oral Roberts, Bachmann worked for a professor...

Leading Republicans have signed up to address the conference led by disgraced Religious Right activist Ralph Reed this summer in Washington. Following commitments by potential presidential candidates Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), numerous Republican congressmen are now confirmed to speak to Reed’s 2011 Conference and Strategy Briefing.

Vicky Hartzler (R-MO); Rep.... MORE >

You really have to wonder at the logic behind Daniel Webster's attempts to fight back/capitalize on Rep. Alan Grayson's "Taliban Dan" ad. First, he goes on Bryan Fischer's radio program right after Fischer pens a long explanation about how how Christian women have an obligation to God to submit to their husbands: Marriage is not and can never be a democracy. Somebody has to have the tie-breaking vote when the poll reveals a one-to-one tie. In a Christian marriage, the husband is the tie breaker. The way it is designed to work is that a wife willingly defers to her husband on those... MORE >

It looks like Meg Whitman may have something of a nanny problem. David Vitter's opponent wants to remind everyone that the Senator had a thing for prostitutes. CNS apparently thought Matt Barber's latest gay-bashing column was so good that it should be re-run by them. Oh no, the Media Research Center has declared war on the media. Christine O'Donnell will not quit her Senate race because God won't let her. What on earth is going on with this assistant attorney general in Michigan? James O'Keefe sinks even lower, if that is even possible. Finally, be... MORE >

Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann paired up for a campaign event today in Minnesota. Somehow the universe did not implode. The AFA's Don Wildmon will be a featured guest at the Florida Family Policy Council's 5th Annual Policy Awards Dinner where he will receive the FFPC's Lifetime Achievement Award, the Daniel Webster Award for Principled Service to Public Policy. For some reason, Phyllis Schlafly is really focused on preventing a second Constitutional Convention. Is anybody calling for a second Constitutional Convention? Peter LaBarber hops aboard Matt Barber's... MORE >

One of the things that has fascinated me most about the Religious Right's crusade to convince themselves that Christians are under relentless attack is how seemingly random things, when they happen to Christians, become evidence of the overall conspiracy.Last week I noted this tendency in relation to the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission's response to the recent murder of a pastor in Illinois, when it claimed that the act was proof that "anti-Christian hostility is reaching a new, more violent level" despite the fact that there appears to be absolutely no evidence that the...
