Commentary: Putting Politics before God

CNN Religion News Blog, (By Stephen Prothero: Boston University religion scholar and author of “The American Bible: How Our Words Unite, Divide, and Define a Nation,” is a regular CNN Belief Blog contributor) Why are evangelicals like Billy Graham and Ralph Reed stumping for Mitt Romney? And why are roughly three-quarters of white evangelicals inclined […]

Religious Right and Dominionist Leaders Come Together, Again

A marriage made in hell.. Back in February, we reported that pastor Anne Gimenez was in the process of recreating the 1980 Washington for Jesus rally, which she led with her late husband, Bishop John Gimenez. The new election-oriented prayer rally, called America for Jesus, is scheduled to be held in Philadelphia’s Independence Mall in […]

The Religious Right Turns 33: What Have We Learned?

Good article by Jonathan Merritt As American Evangelicals have become more partisan, American Christianity has suffered as more shy away from the faith.  Many historians say the modern religious right was birthed in June of 1979. That was the month when the Rev. Jerry Falwell founded the Moral Majority, an organization tasked with saving the […]

All Aboard! The hypocrisy train is filling up fast

   Robert Jeffress, the Dallas megachurch pastor who caused a media firestorm last fall when he said Christians should not support Mitt Romney because Mormonism is a cult, has endorsed Romney. “I haven’t changed my tune. In fact, I never said Christians should not vote for Mitt Romney. When I talked about his theology, I […]

The Religious Right Comes to Terms with Mormon Leaders

Brian Tashman points to the disappearing line which once divided Evangelicals and Mormons. Last year evangelical writer and WORLD Magazine associate publisher Warren Cole Smith created quite a stir with his column pledging not to vote for Mitt Romney if he wins the Republican nomination because of the boost his presidency would provide to Mormonism. […]

Dominionist Dutch Sheets: in Search of Warriors

quote..  We have been reporting on last week’s Gathering of Eagles in Washington, D.C. where the Family Research Council teamed up with “Apostle” Cindy Jacobs to launch a prayer campaign designed to influence the 2012 elections. The event was vivid evidence of the Religious Right’s willingness to embrace the radical dominionists of the New Apostolic […]

Religious Right Leaders to Meet and Plot Strategy on How to Stop Romney

This is interesting though not surprising… Last summer, James Robison convened a meeting of dozens of leading Religious Right activists for the purpose of unifying the movement behind a Republican candidate that could defeat President Obama, presumably Rick Perry. But following last night’s vote in Iowa in which Perry finished a distant fifth, causing him […]

The New Religious Right And Its Threat To The Church

By Brannon Howse (WorldViewWeekend) Perry’s “The Response” is over and now some pro-family and evangelical leaders that were involved in this unbiblical rally are trying to convince Christians that those who warned against the event were wrong. If I was wrong then the Bible is wrong and I can promise you the Bible is not […]

Texas Governor’s Upcoming Event Includes Cult Members

Marsha West has put together an excellent post. The many links included offer a well of information.  Personally, I’m glad to finally see someone nail the AFA (American Family Association). The AFA, as well as Tony Perkins and his Family Research Council are NOT Christian organizations. Perhaps one or both were at some point in […]

Marsha West responds to her article being removed from the AFA

You may recall the excellent article by Marsha West which was originally posted at the American Family Association’s website: Marsha West: (Part 1) Religious Right leaders have joined forces with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), and how it mysteriously disappeared after a couple days. It seems the mystery is solved. The author at as i […]

Religious Right Leaders, Dominionists and False Prophets: United at Last

Janet Porter of Faith2Action has started a new website, IsraelYoureNotAlone.com, and has managed to gather a whole host of names for a Wall Street Journal ad condemning President Obama’s handling of the Israeli-Palestinian crisis. Porter, who last week blamed the deadly tornadoes in the South on Obama’s approach to Israel and legal abortion, garnered signatures […]

300: Religious Right Forming It Own Spartan Army

Kyle, at RWW, has come across further information concerning the union forming between dominionist prophets and the religious right. I must say the ‘joining at the hip’ of these two groups has been fascinating to watch unfold. quote.. For months now, we have been chronicling how self-described prophets and apostles have been merging 7 Mountains/Dominionism […]

The Rise of Charismatic Dominionism

This is an interesting article by Rachel Tabachnick. A few excerpts below… (Link to complete article at the end) Over two years ago I wrote, but never published, the following article. It was immediately following the 2008 election and the Religious Right was being eulogized by the press. The topic is the transition of large […]

American Churches to receive “SHOCK AND AWE”

You know folks, I don’t know ‘what’ this entity called the American Church is anymore. All I know is its no longer about Christ, the Gospel message, or the Kingdom of God. quote… Metro area churches have become the target of a “Shock and Awe” voter guide put out by a group called the Pray […]

1980: The rise of the Religious Right as a political force

This is both an interesting and informative slice of history. It helps shed light on the uniting of politics and Christianity in America, 30 years ago. It also helps explain the apostasy many of our denominations and individual Churches and/or leaders fell into over time. (If time allows also read the story linked in the […]

Some fantastic heretics I have known

By Thomas R. Horn RaidersNewsNetwork (HT) quote.. Recently while searching for a particular document that I had placed in an old photo album years ago for safe keeping (usually how we wind up actually losing things, right!?), I took an unexpected stroll down memory lane. I had gone through at least a dozen books of […]

Religious Right group, “Adopt a Liberal”

CPost A Christian legal group has introduced a new initiative to encourage prayerful Americans to “adopt” a liberal leader. Fla.-based Liberty Counsel’s “Adopt a Liberal” program, inspired by the exhortation of the Apostle Paul, as recorded in 1 Timothy 2:1-3, invites prayerful conservatives to pick out a liberal or two who is in a position […]

Christian Legitimization of the Assassination of President Obama

Last week, as the sniper shot rang out mortally wounding President Obama, the country woke up to the historical fact that idle words are indeed the devil’s playground. History will long note  and judge those, who while the ambulance was attempting to carry the dying man to the nearest hospital, surrounded the vehicle, only to […]

My Beef with Talk Radio, part I: Glenn Beck

Wickle, at A True Believers blog appears to be posting at least a 3 part series in the coming days concerning Talk Radio hosts Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity. Its no secret here what my opinion is concerning these three — so I’ll be interested in following what Wickle has to say… Part […]

Praying for Obama to fail…

Lord, deliver us from the bitterness, hatred, and un-Christ like behavior which is flooding your Church Body: In Jesus Mighty name, amen. “Many American Christians believe, as an article of faith, that we are to pray for the success of our leaders. It has become a sort of conventional wisdom among soft-minded believers…”  (More here […]

The Death of the Religious Right

Excellent post at The Orange Mailman blog: The Death of the Religious Right I wonder if readers of my blog have noticed that I very rarely post on matters of politics.  There are a couple of reasons why.  #1 is that I don’t want to be identified with any political party or system since they […]
