Richard Land, who always prided himself on his "24-year tradition of not exercising my right as a private citizen to endorse a candidate" has now broken that tradition to endorse Mitt Romney because "this election is that important." Speaking of Romney, was his election as President predicted in the Bible. WND says it was! Gary Bauer has the vapors: "The use of profanity conveys a lack of seriousness, and it trivializes the democratic process. Its repeated use contributes to the coarsening of our culture. More than anything, it shows... MORE

Truth in Action Ministries regularly produces slick documentary-like videos filled with Religious Right leaders warning that activist judges are destroying the country, gay rights is turning America into a "lawless" nation, and how the United States is on the road to becoming just like Nazi Germany.
In fact, warning that America is turning into Nazi Germany seems to be Truth in Action's favorite scare tactic, which explains the organization's newest video, "Tyranny: The High Cost of Forgetting God," which "looks at Christians who stood against Hitler's tyrannical rule... MORE

A new report today reveals that approximately one of every ten dollars spent by Iowa congressman Steve King’s re-election campaign goes to him and his family members, who have together collected close to half a million dollars out of his $5.5 million campaign war chest. The review of his campaign expenditures, conducted by CREDO Action, found that King, along with his wife, son and daughter-in-law, have been paid handsomely by his campaign. This lucrative nepotism is nothing new: Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington points out that King's family... MORE

Mission America president Linda Harvey this weekend hosted ex-gay therapist Floyd Godfrey, who describes his own path to “healing” his homosexuality by befriending more men, going to the gym and getting a job at a gas station as a mechanic. Harvey and Godfrey claimed gays and lesbians were most likely abused as children or have such envy for same-sex peers that they develop sexual feelings for them… just like cannibals who eat their own leaders.
Harvey: What I’ve heard of is that part of that though is that you think that you could become what that person is by... MORE

Back at the very beginning of the Lisa Miller saga, a Facebook page called "Only One Mommy: The Story of Lisa and Isabella Miller" that had been created by Rena Lindevaldsen, Miller's attorney and a professor at Liberty University Law School suddenly went dark and an announcement was made it would be "replaced by a new group (still to be named) that will be created by Linda Wall."
Wall, an "ex-gay" activist and close friend of Miller's who was among those named in a RICO lawsuit filed by Miller's ex-partner Janet Jenkins, created a Facebook... MORE

It has become quite clear that the attack that killed Libyan ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi is now Glenn Beck's primary obsession as both his radio and television programs are now dominated by the topic, prompting Beck to cycle between screaming outrage and heartbroken weeping, as he did on Friday when he unleashed his fury against President Obama for being so "arrogant" that he didn't really care what happened to his hand-picked ambassador; a realization that, in turn, caused him to break down in fear that America is going to "become a global terrifying force for...

John McCain says Colin Powell's endorsement of President Obama will turn off voters because Powell "got us into Iraq." Yes, he really said that. Newt Gingrich's SuperPAC wants you to be very scared. Cindy Jacobs is calling on her prayer warriors to pray against Hurricane Sandy and "rebuke this storm in Jesus' name. The authority of the believer is powerful enough to shift weather patterns!" Jim Garlow's continued use of his wife's cancer as a metaphor really is rather tasteless: “My wife has advanced cancer and I am fighting for her... MORE

Charisma Magazine has posted Rick Joyner’s weekly update where he claims that anti-Christian persecution in America has greatly accelerated under the Obama administration. Of course Joyner doesn’t have any real evidence to make such a specious claim besides arguing that the Shepard-Byrd hate crimes law “specifically targets Christians,” still insisting that the government is just itching to use the 2009 law to arrest pastors, ban the Bible and censor speech. He also warned that “serious persecution against Christians in America “will come from the U.S.... MORE
