During a service last weekend, John Hagee spent a half hour interviewing former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay during which DeLay revealed that God has commissioned him to write a book and promised him that he'll play a role in the coming spiritual revival. Hagee praised DeLay for being victorious over the Devil by beating the corruption charges that ended his political career, while DeLay asserted that God was the author of the United States Constitution. "Jesus died for our freedom," DeLay said. "And Jesus destroyed Satan so that we could be free and that is manifested... MORE

If you celebrate or at least don’t mind Halloween, then you are just like those who watched as people were killed in the Roman Coliseum, at least according to WorldNetDaily’s resident demonologist. In Karl Payne’s latest column, he warns that Halloween has “destructive” consequences that “can haunt a person for eternity,” contending that people who participate in Halloween are really no different than the Romans who were entertained by people dying in the Colosseum. To make the observation that things have changed culturally in the 21st century from... MORE

Yesterday, Linda Harvey of Mission America cited a hoax story of a transgender girl in Florence, Colorado, supposedly harassing other students in school. Even though the story was debunked earlier this month, Religious Right activists and conservative news outlets ran with the story. The Pacific Justice Institute concocted the smear campaign against the Colorado student, who has since been placed on suicide watch, and has since admitted that it has no evidence to back up the charges. But since such fictitious tales like a boy getting disciplined in school for praying and Planned... MORE

Tom DeLay is on a mission from God. "Coach" Dave Daubenmire says that you just have to look at what is going on in Washington, DC to know that demonic spirits control the world. Randall Terry needs donations because he is moving his family to Memphis, Tennessee so that his son, who has been diagnosed with cancer, can be closer to the hospital. Glenn Beck is now reading columns written by anti-gay activists on his radio program and completely agreeing with them. Finally, a Republican assemblyman in Nevada says he'd vote to legalize slavery if his... MORE

Following his outburst against gay service members at a 2011 Virginia Family Forum meeting, E.W. Jackson claimed that God is behind the Tea Party movement. Jackson, who is now the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia, said that the 2008 election “broke my heart” and didn’t understand why God would allow the “grave danger” of Obama’s election…until realizing it was part of God’s plan to beget the Tea Party. “The Tea Party is a move of God to stir this nation’s back to its conscience and back to its senses,”...

Update, 10/30: The Dallas Morning News is now reporting that Mike Lee will not be attending the summit. Ted Cruz and Tim Scott will be joining Religious Right leaders in South Carolina, an early primary state, in the beginning of November for a Renewal Project conference organized by David Lane. Lane believes that the US may soon face car bombings as a form of divine retribution over gay rights and legal abortion, and believes that his Renewal Projects can activate enough pastors and conservative voters to save America. Wayne Slater of the Dallas Morning News reports that Sen. Mike Lee... MORE

At a 2011 Virginia Family Foundation summit, E.W. Jackson – now the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor – said that God will stop blessing the U.S. military because of a rule that allows chaplains to marry gay service members following the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Jackson told the group that “our military is under attack” by those who want to allow chaplains to marry same-sex couples. Jackson, who has made a career out of making extreme anti-gay statements, warned: “How in the world can we expect our military to be blessed by the hand of... MORE

This weekend, John Hagee began a new four-part sermon series entitled "The God America Has Forgotten," which kicked off with a blistering sermon in which Hagee railed against all of the standard targets (the courts, the public schools, the government, the culture) and against all the standard issues (abortion, gay marriage, anti-Christian bias) as he warned that if this nation continues to reject God, God will remove his protection from this nation. "The Bible says that all nations that forget God," Hagee thundered, "are turned into Hell.  I assure you that if... MORE

E.W. Jackson, the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia, told a Republican forum prior to his nomination that a plan to have armed guards in schools didn’t go far enough to prevent school shootings. He said that “every person who had a concealed carry permit and was trained to use a firearm” should be “allowed to bring that firearm to school,” adding that he believes it is a Second Amendment right to bring guns to schools. Jackson has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association and the Gun Owners of America, and earlier this year blamed... MORE
