Michael Peroutka, Christian Nationalist And Southern Secessionist, Wins GOP County Council Nomination In Maryland

Two weeks ago, Peter reported that Michael Peroutka, a Southern secessionist and head of the Christian Nationalist group Institute on the Constitution, was narrowly leading in the GOP primary for a seat on the Anne Arundel County, Maryland, county council. Now, after all the ballots have been counted, Peroutka appears to have come out on top of the five-way primary in his heavily Republican district, besting his closest competitor by a mere 38 votes. In an editorial today, the Annapolis Capital Gazette notes that by nominating Peroutka, GOP voters in the district “have definitely... MORE >

Far from the spotlight of Thad Cochran’s surprise defeat of his Tea Party challenger in Mississippi, radical Christian Reconstructionist and southern secessionist Michael Peroutka has apparently won the Republican primary for a county council seat in Maryland’s Anne Arundel County. As of early this morning, with all precincts reporting, the largely self-financing Peroutka had a 36-vote lead over his closest competitor in a five-way primary. But absentee ballots are still being counted, so Anne Arundel County voters could yet be spared a Peroutka general election candidacy. We have... MORE >

Michael Peroutka — the former League of the South board member who recently donated a million-dollar dinosaur skeleton to the Creation Museum — is also on the ballot for county council in Anne Arundel County Maryland, in today’s Republican primary. If Peroutka is elected, it seems that he may feel no need to follow the laws of the state of Maryland. In an Institute on the Constitution video released yesterday, Peroutka claims that the Maryland General Assembly is “no longer a valid legislative body” and as a result, none of the laws that it has passed are...

The Ten Commandments And The 4,300-Year-Old Dinosaur: Michael Peroutka's Web Of Christian-Nation Influence

Two weeks ago, the Creation Museum — the anti-evolution themepark run by the advocacy group Answers in Genesis — received a huge gift: a $1 million dinosaur skeleton meant to help the museum illustrate its belief that dinosaurs were part of the original creation 6,000 years ago and coexisted with humans until well after Noah’s flood. The benefactor that gave the museum Ebenezer the Allosaurus was the Elizabeth Streb Peroutka Foundation, a family foundation run by Maryland-based right-wing activists and brothers Michael and Stephen Peroutka and Michael’s daughter...

Allen West just so happened to be seated next to someone on a plane who knew the "ground truth" about what really happened in Benghazi and he told him all about it! Whenever something that the Religious Right supports gets banned from Facebook for violating hate speech standards, they throw a fit and scream "persecution." Todd Starnes is unafraid to ask the hard questions: "Does Google Hate America?" Michael Peroutka donated a dinosaur skeleton worth over a million dollars to the Creation Museum. Finally, "Duck Dynasty's" Phil... MORE >

While Peter LaBarbera has complained that he was “forced” to watch rookie defensive end Michael Sam kiss his boyfriend, today conservative activist Michael Peroutka said he got rid of cable in order to avoid seeing “sewer filth” like this. Michael Sam, to the best of my information, is a football player recently drafted by the Saint Louis Rams who, apparently, is publically in violation of Leviticus 18:22. That verse declares homosexual conduct to be an abomination before God. In the very next verse, by the way, God labels bestiality as an abomination as well.... MORE >
