Televangelist Jim Bakker yesterday equated the supposed persecution of Christians in America to the violent persecution of Mideast Christians by ISIS terrorists, telling his audience that the U.S. government may soon “mow down” Christians who pray in public spaces. Bakker said that he himself is a victim of anti-Christian oppression and that people should prepare for massive starvation and beheadings. “We can’t preach the Bible anymore,” Bakker said, warning that violence against Christians is imminent due to “political correctness.” Bakker said that...

Yesterday, Eric Metaxas posted an interview with Donald Trump’s son and campaign surrogate Eric Trump, who assured Metaxas that his father cherishes the U.S. Constitution and would appoint conservative jurists like the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Eric Trump pointed to his father’s contempt for the War on Christmas as a reason conservatives can trust him to protect constitutional principles: “Believe me, there is nobody who is more Second Amendment, there’s no one who is more of a constitutionalist, there is no one who cares about our civil liberties more than he...

On Saturday, Donald Trump spoke with the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins, the extremist Religious Right leader who has been rallying conservative activists around Ted Cruz, on Perkins’ radio program “Washington Watch.” The GOP presidential frontrunner went on his usual rants about the so-called “War on Christmas” and how this anti-Christmas spirit is undermining religious liberty. Trump, who has made attacks on Muslims a central part of his campaign, said that Christians in America are losing their religious freedoms, unlike Muslim-Americans,... MORE

While Religious Right activists like Pat Robertson regularly rail against the terrible oppression Christians in America suffer due to the liberals’ supposed “War on Christmas,” his very own show, “The 700 Club,” reminded us today who led the original “War on Christmas” in America: the Pilgrims. Reporter Paul Strand reported today on how the Pilgrims were “some of history's most fervent opponents of Christmas.” In her Patheos blog yesterday, Beth Allison Barr reminded us of how the War on Christmas went down in England:...

One of the most ridiculous assertions at the heart of the Religious Right’s ludicrous claims that there is a “War on Christmas” in America is the notion that retailers and individuals who say “happy holidays” rather than “Merry Christmas” are insulting Christians and participating in a nefarious plot to, in the words of the American Family Association, “eradicate anything that reminds Americans of Christianity.” More likely they’re just being respectful of the fact that all their customers or neighbors may not share the AFA’s...

Last week, the American Family Association released its "Naughty or Nice List," designed to let consumers "know which companies are Christmas-friendly" so they can patronize them this holiday season in an effort to fight back against the "secular forces in our country that hate Christmas because the word itself is a reminder of Jesus Christ." Today, Liberty Counsel released its own "Naughty or Nice List," which likewise "applauds retailers who acknowledge the reason for the season, and exposes those who do not." We have looked over both lists... MORE
