Senators and presidential hopefuls Rand Paul and Ted Cruz will head to Iowa this week as featured speakers at a closed-door event for conservative pastors that has been organized by David Lane, an anti-gay, anti-choice, anti-Mormon, Christian-nation absolutist who has declared war, not only on secularism and separation of church and state, but also on establishment Republicans who don’t embrace his vision of an America in which the Bible serves as “the principle textbook” for public education and a “Christian culture” has been “re-established.” He...

Newt Gingrich continues to make the patently false claim that gay marriage “outlawed” Catholic charities. Almost a year after predicting that President Obama would be impeached over Benghazi, Mike Huckabee once again predicted that President Obama will be impeached over Benghazi. Yet another GOP lawmaker, Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO), has endorsed the debunked conspiracy theory that Christians in the military will face court martials. Christian Post columnist Wallace Henley foresees the rise of a “New Majority” focused on opposing... MORE >

Pamela Geller will not be welcomed back to CPAC this year, representing yet another development in annual conservative gathering’s frequent clashes over Islamophobia. Anti-Muslim activists like Geller, David Horowitz, Frank Gaffney and Robert Spencer claim that the Muslim Brotherhood and its cohorts, namely Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan, are trying to infiltrate the conservative movement. During her panel last year, James Lafferty of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force bragged that he was “proud” that many of the attacks on mosques in the U.S. have occured in the South.... MORE >

It seems that Religious Right anti-gay activist "Chaplain" Gordon Klingenschmitt, perhaps best known for claiming to have freed a lesbian soldier from homosexuality after performing an exorcism on her, has started producing a daily television program that consists of him filming himself talking about the news of the day. On episode two of his new series, Klingenschmitt took issue with the recent statement from Newt Gingrich saying that the GOP has to adjust to changing opinions on the issue of marriage equality, claiming that Gingrich is doing so because he is trying to "...

What Newt Gingrich you get - the seemingly reasonable conservative commentator or the egotistical bomb-throwing partisan - seems to be determined by whether or not there is an election on the horizon. When he is not running for office and there are no elections at stake, Gingrich likes to present himself as a reasonable, rational conservative who is attuned to reality, leading to comments like this new one where he says the GOP has to adjust to changing opinions on marriage equality: On gay marriage, meanwhile, Gingrich argued that Republicans could no longer close their eyes to the...

Gingrich: Obama Wants to Put 'the Government Which is Currently Failing in Hurricane Sandy' in Charge of Your Health Care

Newt Gingrich appeared on Steve Deace's radio program last evening to explain why Mitt Romney is going to win the election, which makes sense given Gingrich's steller record of making accurate election predictions. During the discussion, Gingrich said that another Obama administration would be a "nightmare" because an "arrogant" and "divisive" Obama wants to make sure that "the government which is currently failing in Hurricane Sandy" will be delivering your healthcare: I think that this is the most important election of our lifetime.
