Rush Limbaugh questions Joe Biden's faith, says liberals worship trees

I’m not religious. You might say I’m an agnostic with Buddhist leanings — but most people would just call me a heathen. And that’s fine with me. I was raised Catholic, and I’m aware that there’s a campaign called Catholics Come Home, but at this point returning to church would feel a bit too much like…

REPORTER: “Is that your Bible?” TRUMP: “It's A Bible.”

Reporter: “Is that your bible” Trump: “It's A bible” x He's using the American military against the American people. He tear-gassed peaceful protesters and fired rubber bullets. For a photo. For our children, for the very soul of our country, we must defeat him. But I mean it when I say this: we can only…

Trump to evangelicals…

Seeing what you want to see to the exclusion of all else is not only to deny facts, it is dangerous.  Proof of that is when Susan Collins and other Republicans said he [Trump] has learned his lesson. It is like when you turn to glare in the backseat of your car to stop your…

'Evangelicals for Trump' Host says God raised up Trump as part of plan for End Times, Second Coming

Because Trump is the closest we can get to something, something… an antichrist.

Bill Barr Wants to Save Us from Hell

The tagline on my profile says, as it has for years: “It is not the business of the state to help its citizens get into heaven nor save them from hell.” Apparently our esteemed Attorney General never read that. Nor has he read the First Amendment. As an op-ed in today’s New York Times puts…

The anti-abortion movement isn't about abortion.

(Yes, I know I’m still on vacation — the photo is from Mestia, capital of the Svaneti region of the High Caucasus — but once again the news won’t let me be. I originally posted this on Facebook after the Alabama monstrosity was signed into “law” and thought it deserved a hearing here. I’ll check…

Originally posted at Eclectablog. My Eclectablog post yesterday (“Anti-trans* woman uses Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to sue Planet Fitness for terminating her membership“) which I cross-posted here at Daily Kos, provoked a response from the so-called “Christians” at RenewAmerica.com today. The piece is written by Ellis Washington, a founding board member of Salt and…

Please Support Michigan House Bill 4147 And Radically Change Our Public Schools

Originally published on Up North Progressive. Every week the Up North Progressive's email inbox receives a list of bills introduced to the Michigan state legislature. This week the Michigan House wants to make it illegal to teach Reading, Writing and Math with HB 4143. They also don't want Michigan schools teaching Science either. The Michigan…

The “Chick-Fil-A” Standard

When Boston Mayor Thomas Menino came out against Chick-Fil-A after its CEO expressed opposition to gay marriage, numerous grassroots campaigns throughout the nation followed suit encouraging people to take their business elsewhere. If your Facebook is anything like mine, it’s probably full of statuses standing with, or against, the Boston Mayor. What puzzles me is…
