E.J. Dionne Jr.: Francis’ anti-imperial papacy

This is excellent. Religion makes a lot of mistakes.

Faith traditions can be so harsh that they drive away everyone but the self-righteous scolds. Or they can so indulge in therapeutic comfort and manufactured joy that they come to seem like a charlatan’s game.

They can be so otherworldly that they offer no guidance to [...]

Leader of Catholic groups calls for liberal academics to be “taken out and shot”

During an appearance Wednesday on American Family Radio, Austin Ruse, the president of the nonprofit research group Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, opined that liberal leaders of “modern universities” should “all be taken out and shot.” That is the nonsense that they teach in women’s studies at Duke University, this is where she learned [...]

The anti-Christ will poll better than Obama

The good news:

Texas megachurch Pastor Robert Jeffress told Bill O’Reilly Monday night that Obama can’t be the anti-Christ because Obama’s poll numbers aren’t high enough. Whew! That was a close one!

The bad news:

The Affordable Care Act is paving the way for the anti-Christ by acclimating people to government overreach.

Rachel Held Evans: Everyone’s a Biblical Literalist Until You Bring Up Gluttony

This is worth a read.

Yet you don’t see weigh-ins preceding baptisms or people holding “God Hates Gluttons” signs outside the den of iniquity that is Ryan’s Steakhouse.

And we haven’t even touched on materialism, or the fact that on the day I stuffed my face with froyo, 30,000 kids died from preventable diseases and [...]

Paul Ryan lectures the Pope about capitalism

Republican Rep. Paul Ryan has some nerve… It’s true that while knuckle-draggers like Rush Limbaugh attack the pope as a Marxist, Ryan has praised him, which I guess takes a tiny bit of courage since normally Republicans don’t like to buck the leader of their party. “What I love about the pope is he is [...]

Rafael Cruz: “social justice is a cancer”

Apparently Rafael Cruz, the father of Canadian-born Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, isn’t a believer in what the Bible teaches about social justice. Rafael Cruz told an April gathering of tea party supporters in Hood County, Texas, that the “wicked,” including so-called Republicans In Name Only, were ruling the United States, and made his often-repeated claim [...]

VIDEO: Reza Aslan explains why a Muslim would write a book on Jesus

Aslan responded, “Well, to be clear, I am a scholar of religions with four [...]

An Open Letter to Texas State Senator, Jane Nelson (R) – (VIDEO)

Dear “Honorable” Jane Nelson:

It simply amazes me, that folks such as yourself, spent the entire day of testimony regarding this particular bill, (SB 1), denigrating women using every single slur known to man, and yet, when a woman testifies before you, exercising HER freedom to speak, you censor her by calling in the security [...]
