Reading Time: 2 minutes President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared December 7, 1941 to be “a day of infamy.” That was two weeks before my fifth birthday. January 6, 2021 was also a day of infamy. That was shortly after my 84th birthday, almost 80 years after the earlier one, which has long been known as Pearl Harbor Day. On December […]
Reading Time: 10 minutes Sarah Berger, the wife of Grace Chapel’s former high priest lead pastor, Steve Berger, grabbed the mic to rant at length about how her husband had been hard-done-by in the change in leadership.

Reading Time: 10 minutes Today, let me show you the red flags I noticed in Madison Cawthorn before this week, and then let’s get into his playbook — and see why his preferred tactics are both cruel and devastating to evangelical women.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Hi and welcome back! As soon as evangelicals staged their January 6th insurrection attempt, I knew we’d be seeing the usual infighting afterward. And yes, we sure did.

But here we are, and it is strange territory to be sure to find ourselves in: Franklin Graham, son of the evangelical hero […]
Reading Time: 9 minutes By far, one of the only spots of amusement in recent news is the way that Donald Trump’s onetime allies and most fervent supporters are now distancing themselves from him. And of all of those allies and supporters, none were quite as certain of their allegiance as so-called ‘pro-lifers.’ These culture warriors once heralded him as a divine savior of pweshus unborn baybeez. But now, they’ve been trying to claim some very different territory. Today, let me show you how feckless and obviously self-interested these self-proclaimed culture warriors truly are, in their attempts at distancing themselves from Donald Trump.
Reading Time: 6 minutes Hello and welcome back! Since their thankfully-failed attack on the Capitol Building last week, America’s conservative-wingnut traitors have been getting tossed out of one social media platform after another. Slowly, all of their options are slamming shut in their faces! Today, Lord Snow Presides over the trouble traitors are having lately in finding a new […]
Reading Time: 6 minutes Yes, I’ve seen some evangelical leaders wringing their hands about evangelicals’ supposedly-lost credibility.
