Today, Donald Trump’s campaign announced the formation of his Evangelical Executive Advisory Board, which includes right-wing figures ranging from ex-Rep. Michele Bachmann to Focus on the Family founder James Dobson. After retiring from Congress on the heels of a campaign scandal, Bachmann has not let up in her radical preaching. According to Bachmann, the September 11 attacks represented God’s judgment on America; President Obama and gay rights advocates are bringing about the End Times; homosexuality is “personal enslavement” and “part of...

Robert Jeffress says that conservative Christians "are going to realize ... there is no choice in this election except to vote for Donald Trump" because the only thing that matters is the Supreme Court. Thrice-married adulterer Newt Gingrch says that Trump is "totally virtuous" compared with Bill and Hillary Clinton. Bill Muehlenberg says that atheists are consumed by "their hatred of God ... [which] explains their love of abortion, their hatred of marriage and family, their rejection of traditional morality, and their enmity to America and the West.... MORE >

Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, praised his state’s leaders yesterday for refusing to comply with an Obama administration directive on facilities access for trans students in public schools, saying that “it’s time for an all-out rebellion against this absolute tyranny of the Obama administration.” He added that business interests pressuring lawmakers not to enact anti-LGBT measures are a greater “threat to freedom of religion in America” than ISIS. Jeffress, a key Religious Right ally to Donald Trump, discussed the topic... MORE >

It isn’t at all surprising that a candidate who has a long history of making misogynistic and degrading statements about women, has bragged about the endorsement of a convicted rapist, has talked about Hillary Clinton getting “schlonged,” and at one point backed the idea of punishing women who have abortions would attract the support of those with their own histories of troubling rhetoric about women. Indeed, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has touted the endorsements of several politicians and activists who have done everything from denounce women... MORE >

Donald Trump’s obsession with conspiracy theories didn’t come out of nowhere. Before the GOP presidential frontrunner started winning the backing of Republican leaders, he assembled a team of ardent right-wing conspiracy theorists whose bigoted and bizarre beliefs once put them decidedly on the fringe of American politics. Trump himself has spread a wide range of bizarre and bogus claims, winning state after state by questioning the facts about President Obama’s birthplace and religion, bashing immigrants as “killers and rapists,” parading discredited stories to...

“Do I love the Mormons?” Donald Trump asked last week in Utah. “I have many friends that live in Salt Lake City, I have a lot of friends, I have a lot of friends, and by the way, Mitt Romney is not one of them. Did he choke? Did this guy choke? He’s a choke artist. I can’t believe — are you sure he’s a Mormon? Are we sure?” Despite Trump’s (mixed) praise for the Mormon faith heading into the Utah primary, Mormon voters may want to know why the Republican presidential frontrunner has been touting the support of Texas pastor Robert Jeffress...

Right-wing pastor Robert Jeffress has been growing increasingly defensive as he faces criticism over his warm embrace of Donald Trump, especially from fellow right-wing Christians like the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer. Jeffress is particularly upset that self-professed Christians who support Trump are having the legitimacy of their faith questioned for doing so: Robert Jeffress, the pastor of the 12,000 member First Baptist Church in Dallas who has endorsed Donald Trump, is pushing back against several high profile Christian leaders and pundits who have mocked the...
