Pat Robertson’s Women Warriors Leading Spiritual Warfare In Zimbabwe

…aking in tongues; their concentration unbroken by a persistently ringing cell phone left in a purse at the back of the room. One by one, the speakers lower themselves into a chair facing Bethlehem (where Bourland also runs a house of prayer on Manger Street), and rest their feet in a disposable aluminum pan now half full of murky water. As Bourland washes their feet, one by one, about a dozen people watch, pray, and lay on hands. As she finishes e…

…d an amicus brief in the case, immediately denounced the court’s ruling, calling it “outrageous” and “shameful.” Perkins said that “This radical redefinition of marriage will have severe consequences for children, families, religious liberties, businesses and every facet of society as we know it.” Perkins added that the “decision puts marriage at risk all across the nation and highlights the need for a Marriage Protection Amendment to the US Const…

“Japan Gave Us Pokemon, God Gave Them an Earthquake”

…purported 2012 “end of the world” to explain the seismic activity. I’ve collected a sample of these below for you to see through Google’s real-time twitter feed. From the small sample, it’s safe to say there is a “fatalistic” understanding that natural disasters are about sin or God’s wrath. Even insurance companies think so, placing the phrase “Acts of God” as a catchall for everything unexplainable and destructive. Disasters seem to bring out s…

Are Evangelicals Suffering From Buyer’s Remorse with Obama?

…s, and he has echoed that language. Some of us continue to dream that he will roll out a major abortion-reduction initiative. All too familiar. Such an initiative has not been offered. But what has occurred are a series of disappointingly typical Democratic abortion-related moves… Frank Page, a former president of the Southern Baptist Convention and a member of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships’ council, told the…

Pseudo-Historian David Barton in the Times and on The Daily Show

…tea party, Barton was the subject of a fluff piece in the New York Times followed by an interview with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show (video below, after the jump). Barton’s slipperiness was evident in both, though only Stewart seemed plainly frustrated by it. Those of us who write about Barton have been busily dissecting his appearances and Right Wing Watch has posted a great multipart analysis here. Rather than explore the disagreements between t…

Pretty Girls Like Trap Church: A Movement at 2 Chainz’s Atlanta Pink House

Last week in Atlanta, Georgia, an unassuming house on 1530 Howell Mill Road that had been painted bright pink in promotion of rapper 2 Chainz’s latest album, “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music,” was whitewashed back to its original eggshell hue. For the past several weeks, the Pink Trap House installation had been a lot of things to different people. A quick search of the #PinkTrapHouse hashtag on Instagram shows it was a major tourist attraction to f…

Colbert v. Stewart: It’s On! 10.30.10

…ewart made his “big announcement” last night. Stewart and the Daily Show will host the “Rally to Restore Sanity,” 10.30.10 on the Washington Mall. In a hilarious parody of Glenn Beck, Stewart urges moderates to join him for “a Million Moderate March,” suggesting that a small minority of Americans have taken the public discussion hostage because the “rest of us have s**t to do.” And that we should just step up and “take it down a notch for America….

The Battle for the Meaning of Religious Freedom Day

There’s an oxymoron embedded in one of the model bills in the Christian right’s state legislative campaign called Project Blitz. Their model resolution for Religious Freedom Day celebrates a day devoted to something they oppose: religious freedom. Yes, the authors mouth many of the right things, including boilerplate platitudes and cherrypicked historical artifacts as recommended by Project Blitz. But what’s omitted illuminates the intentions of…

In “The Promise,” A Reminder That U.S. Apathy to Genocide Endures

…k, the ambassador comments on the plight of the Armenians, who are being killed by the Ottomans. The official wonders if the ambassador’s sympathies come from his being Jewish. The ambassador responds that he is Jewish, and he is American, and America is a nation of refugees. At that moment, you have to take a breath. The United States is a nation of refugees, not immigrants. If we wish to hold on to a founding myth, that the people who came to Pl…
