Liars For Yahweh! How The Tikun Olam Charter School Got A $600,000 Federal Grant

Question: How does a charter school whose multiple applications have been riddled with lies and misrepresentations and has been rejected three times by a state education department get approved for a $600,000 grant from the federal government? Answer: The federal government admittedly does not routinely fact-check grant applications for charter schools, and does not allow […]

How Much Money Could The Defense Department Save If It Stopped Trying To Save Souls?

How Much Money Could The Defense Department Save If It Stopped Trying To Save Souls?

When the average American thinks of military spending on religion, they probably think only of the money spent on chaplains and chapels. And, yes, the Department of Defense (DoD) does spend a hell of a lot of money on these basic religious accommodations to provide our troops with the opportunity to exercise their religion while […]

A Holiday Letter From The Family Of An Air Force Academy Graduate

Last week, on the heels of the release of the alarming statistics on religious harassment at the U.S. Air Force Academy, the Academy held a religious respect conference.

Glenn Beck Promotes Socialism To West Point Cadets

Glenn Beck Promotes Socialism To West Point Cadets

On his show last Friday, Glenn Beck did something quite unusual for a guy who makes his living scaring people into thinking that America is on the road to communism — he promoted an idea straight out of the Paris Commune of 1871, an idea considered by the Commune to be a necessary stepping stone […]

Top Ten Ways to Convince Muslims We’re On a Religious Crusade

As many will remember, we couldn’t have gotten off to a better start on winning hearts and minds when Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin, on his speaking tour of churches back in 2003, publicly and in uniform proclaimed that the so-called war on terror was really a fight between Satan and Christians.

Army Officer Who Said Blacks Were Better Off as Slaves Promoted With Obama’s Blessing

President Obama can’t be expected to personally vet every military officer who is up for promotion, and, for all but those in the highest ranks, would obviously just rely on the recommendations of the superiors of officers on the promotions lists, but I have to wonder how the president would feel about having rubber stamped the promotion of an officer who said that blacks were better off as slaves.

Exposed: ‘C Street’ and The Military

Making the connections between the Family and the military is “a new front” — a front that is leading to new revelations about some old discoveries. For example, the participants in the Campus Crusade for Christ Christian Embassy Video — a video that led the Military Religious Freedom Foundation to demand an investigation by the Department of Defense Inspector General in which seven officers were found guilty of ethics violations — also included, in addition to the military officers, many other government officials and politicians.

The Idiocy of Texas and the Threat of David Barton

Ever since Governor Rick Perry’s (R-TX) appointment of Gail Lowe as chair of the worst and most dangerous state Board of Education ever, and the almost inevitable choice of Christian nationalist history revisionist David Barton as an “expert” to review the state’s social studies curriculum, I’ve been getting a stream of emails from people who […]

The “Great Commission” and Iraq

The “Great Commission” and Iraq

On May 28, McClatchy’s Washington Bureau reported that a Marine in Fallujah had outraged the city’s residents by passing out coins that read, in Arabic, “Where will you spend eternity?” on one side, and “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, […]
