Perhaps they’ll be Joined by some Communist Stockbrokers

2012 Presidential Candidate Newt Gingrich, trying to have it both ways in a speech at John Hagee‘s Cornerstone Church on March 27 2011:

I have two grandchildren — Maggie is 11, Robert is 9. I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they’re [...]

God’s Indifferent Judgment Descends Upon DC After Gay Marriage Vote

Pat Robertson says it. Stephen Bennett says it. John Hagee says it. James Evans and John Piper say it. Graham Dow says it. These and other fundamentalist Christians have declared the weather to be the vehicle of God’s judgment regarding gay people.

Today, the Washington DC City Council cast the first of two scheduled votes, [...]

Vermont Gay Marriages Begin and the Weather’s Fine

Fundamentalist Christian leaders like John Hagee, Pat Robertson, Stephen Bennett and John Piper have spent years insisting that their God sends tornadoes and hurricanes as divine judgment against gay pride parades, churches that respect gays and lesbians, and governments that let same-sex couples get married.

The contention doesn’t bear up well under empirical scrutiny: [...]

God Punishes Sodomites of Iowa With Warm Air and Sunshine

“God Cannot Be Mocked,” we were reminded yesterday after posting an April Fools Day conversion. Mock God and there will be consequences! What kind of consequences? Well, prominent John McCain endorser John Hagee proclaims weather to be an instrument of God’s judgment against gay people, except when the hurricanes miss the gay people and kill [...]

John Hagee Declares God Doesn’t Actually Mind Gays So Much

In a televised speech this morning, the Reverend John Hagee declared that God doesn’t actually mind gays so much after all:

All hurricanes are acts of God, because God controls the heavens. Hurricane Gustav largely spared New Orleans after killing many others, despite the Southern Decadence gay pride week from August 27 to September 1 [...]

If Weather is the Instrument of God, God Hates Straights

It’s not just a one-time thing. It’s a pattern. If the fundamentalists are right about God, then God’s will is pretty clear: God loves same-sex marriage. God hates straights.

If we are to believe the likes of fundamentalist Christian leaders John Hagee and Pat Robertson and Stephen Bennett, God sends weather in judgment of peoples [...]

If God Exists, He Celebrates Gay Marriage in Greece

Yesterday, the mayor of the Greek island of Tilos performed the nation’s first same-sex marriage in a civil town hall ceremony.

If we are to believe the likes of fundamentalist Christian leaders John Hagee and Pat Robertson, God uses weather events to punish people engaged in the sorts of marriages He doesn’t like.

That makes [...]

Dumb Idea of 2008: Mix Religion With Presidential Campaigns

The conspicuous use of religion by the presidential campaigns hasn’t helped the candidates who have done it. It’s hurt them. Please, in 2012, let’s not repeat this tawdry little faith-based experiment. Let’s return to talking about presidential candidates’ policies instead of their prayers. [...]

John McCain Incompetent If He Didn’t Know About Hagee

If John McCain knew about John Hagee’s raging antisemitism and said nothing until it became politically inconvenient, McCain is morally unsuitable for the Presidency. If John McCain sought John Hagee’s endorsement and political partnership without doing a background on Hagee, McCain lacks the basic competence necessary to be President. [...]
