The Roman Catholic Bishop of Springfield, Illinois, is warning that the Democratic Party has endorsed “intrinsic evils” and consequently, voters who back Democratic candidates have put their eternal salvation at risk. In the Catholic Times, the official newspaper of the Springfield diocese, Bishop Thomas John Paprocki uses the manufactured controversy about mentioning “God” in the Democratic Platform to argue that the Democrats are hostile to faith, and went on to attack Democrats for endorsing gay rights and opposing the criminalization of abortion. He said those two... MORE

Yesterday we noted that Donald Trump recently spoke at Liberty University where he delivered a rather unique message to a gathering of thousands of Christian students: "Get even!"
Sensing that perhaps 'seek revenge' was not exactly central to the message that Jesus preached, ABC News reached out to the Trump camp seeking comment and were told that Trump's message was perfectly Christian because Jesus himself "would and did" get even ... and even Liberty U agrees:
In a statement, Trump’s special counsel, Michael Cohen, said he checked with a... MORE

Today's episode of "WallBuilders Live" was dedicated entirely to perpetuating the right-wing lie that President Obama had "gutted" welfare reform by removing the work requirement; a claim that has repeatedly been shown to be demonstrably false.
But, as we have noted time and time again, the fundamental falsehood of a claim isn't going to stop David Barton from repeating it over and over, which is just what he did today on the program where, for good measure, he also declared that the waivers were "anti-biblical" and further proof that President Obama is hostile...

Mission America’s Linda Harvey today hailed a recent claim by the National Organization for Marriage that companies which endorse gay rights and marriage equality are suffering among consumers. Seeing that NOM believes that their 48,000-person boycott of Starbucks over its endorsement of Washington’s same-sex marriage law cost the company $10 billion, it is hard to take the group’s new assertion seriously. Harvey told listeners that her family is boycotting countless companies over their views on gay rights and suggested that as a result they “may be seeing a... MORE

Ken Blackwell of the Family Research Council yesterday spoke to VCY America’s Crosstalk where he, like FRC president Tony Perkins, again tried to link both the Obama administration and the Southern Poverty Law Center to the tragic office shooting last month. But that wasn’t the only thing Blackwell told host Jim Schneider, as he also warned that all those who oppose the FRC and its mission are trying to form a “totalitarian state” and “destroy the family.”
Blackwell: We at the Family Research Council, we are a conservative Christian organization, we have... MORE

Chaplains Alliance for Religious Liberty head Ron Crews yesterday in the Washington Times said that the new study which once again proved that the end of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell has had no negative impact on the military since the repeal was certified one year ago is mere “propaganda” that “should be shredded post-haste.” However, Crews does not even attempt to rebut the study or offer any evidence for why the report “has no connection to reality.” He did blame the repeal policy for one incidence of potential harassment and supposed uneasiness...

Rep. Allen West says that if he addressed the UN, he'd tell our enemies that "the Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence." Can we all agree to never let Allen West address the UN?

Focus on the Family president Jim Daly hosted conservative pastor Tony Evans to discuss the importance of voting yesterday, which Daly kicked off by claiming that just a single vote brought Texas into the Union, would have stopped Hitler from coming to power, made German a second language in the US and defeated John F. Kennedy. While of course every vote is important, unfortunately, Daly’s list is entirely false and based on urban legends.
Daly made sure to keep the program nominally nonpartisan but did discuss why evangelical voters should prefer a conservative non-Christian candidate... MORE

As David Barton sees it, anyone who doesn't buy his absurd claim that the Constitution is chock-full of verbatim direct quotes from the Bible is simply "biblically illiterate." And, as Barton explained on "WallBuilders Live" today, the reason people are so uninformed about the Bible is because they have never read it from cover to cover ... and that includes our "Christian atheist" president Barack Obama:
I've started asking people "have you read through the Bible from cover to cover?" And I'm talking people fifty, sixty, seventy years... MORE
