The Bible And Jesus Are Waging A War On Christmas!

A wave of Christmas-hating degeneracy is sweeping over the world, and the American Family Association is documenting it. Jim has pointed out the AFA’s clear standard: If you don’t say Christmas, you’re a Christmas hater.

I know that the good Christian soldiers already have a lot of work on their agenda, given all the hateful [...]

PROOF that the American Family Association is Against Christmas

Yesterday I learned that the American Family Association has targeted certain corporations for being “Against Christmas.” Apparently, you’re “Marginal on Christmas” if you’re a corporation that “refers to Christmas infrequently, or in a single advertising medium, but not in others.” According to the AFA, a corporation is downright “Against Christmas” if it “may use ‘Christmas’ [...]

American Family Association: If You Don’t Talk About Christmas, You Hate Christmas

The American Family Association is at it again. Having bullied corporate retail chains across the country into inserting Christmas references into pet supply circulars and advertisements for drywall, the AFA is pushing the same chains to place even more references to Baby Jesus. Sending a new set of ratings to its diminishing band of followers, [...]

American Family Association’s New Zombie Jesus Buttons Don’t Go Far Enough

It’s October, so in the spirit of Halloween the American Family Association is offering a blood-red button featuring the outstretched hand of a long-dead Jesus, reaching, reaching, along with the words “He Came for YOU!”

It’s unfortunate that the AFA button isn’t more detailed. I suggest this friendly amendment for the li’l trick-or-treaters:

Consider:

Rick Perry Tries To Organize Governors’ Revolt Against the Constitution

Rick Perry’s attempt to organize a theocratic rebellion of state governments against the First Amendment of the Constitution 1) attempts to deny citizens’ equal protection under the law; 2) attempts to violate citizens constitutional right to freedom of religion; 3) attempts to create a government establishment of religion. It’s a thorough and blatant rebellion against America’s constitutional government. [...]

How to Exasperate a Liberal #116: Try to use Government to Make People Use Your Religion’s Special Words

Don’t tell me, do not tell me that we cannot enforce laws against profanity, laws against blasphemy, laws against misusing the Lord’s name!

– Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association, May 2011

Bryan Fischer, we cannot enforce laws against profanity (the uttering of words that a religion considers offensive to its sacred ideas, like [...]

Teavangelicalism, Brought to you by the GOP

The fundamentalist Christian American Family Association reports on its burgeoning “Rise of the Teavangelicals”…

… brought to you with funding from the Republican National Committee:

#10 Way to Exasperate a Liberal: MisQuote Violent Islamic Texts and Ignore Violent Christian Texts

American Family Association President Tim Wildmon is out there again, flogging the notion that Islam is an inherently violent religion. And to do so, he selectively quotes from the Quran:

President Obama this week once again called Islam “a great religion” which has been “distorted” by a small number of “extremists” to justify committing acts [...]

Tim Wildmon and the AFA Caught Bearing False Witness Again

American Family Association President Tim Wildmon got caught bearing false witness last summer. To make a political point, Wildmon wrote of Barack Obama in 2001 that “in that same radio interview he bemoaned the fact that the Warren Supreme Court ‘never entered into the issues of redistribution of wealth.’” This is a false accusation. The [...]

If John Boehner Doesn’t Get His Way, You Didn’t Pray Hard Enough, Bub

In a letter I found in my mailbox today, Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association asked me to pray as hard as the heroic genocidal baby-killers of the Bible.

In a very real sense I am asking you and every other AFA member to act as Aaron and Hur did when Moses prayed to [...]

City Bans Christmas? The Non-War on Christmas

“City Bans Christmas,” an e-mail blast by the American Family Association informs me. “The War on Christmas has already begun.”

No celebrations of Christmas allowed within the borders of a city here in Americaa? Unthinkable! Indefensible! Why…

…wait a minute. My suspicions regarding this claim were raised when I learned that the city in question [...]
