The War at the Values Voters Summit

…more outlandish antics. Charles Mitchell, who blogs at evangelicalsformitt.com but is not formally affiliated with the Romney campaign, said, “We don’t just want you to get up there and pound your foot and say, ‘I’m pro-life!’ ‘Let’s go after gay marriage!’” He also said that evangelicals like him are frustrated by publicity stunts like Judge Roy Moore’s defiance of a court order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from his courthouse. “Where di…

The Birth of Glenn Beck’s Nation

…coverage concludes that Beck is, at best, “bonkers.” Alex Pareene of Salon.com, however, realizes that perhaps this is not “some sort of victory”; that leaving Fox is not the end of Beck, but rather that his legacy might not be as a talking head but as an amateur historian, the creator of Beck University, with a clear, and popular, articulation of nation. The tagline for BU promises, “learn history as it really happened” with David Barton responsi…

DeVos Literally Can’t Name a Discriminatory Policy She’d Refuse to Fund

…that, if a state approved it for its voucher program, that you would step in and say, that’s not how we’re going to use our federal dollars,” Clark summarized after DeVos again refused to answer the congresswoman’s questions.

Hey Hey, Ho Ho White Jesus Has to Go… But The Issue is More Complicated Than You Think

…y still be present for African Americans and others even after white Jesus comes down and browner and blacker depictions become normalized within American society? I argue that the removal of white Jesus as an icon doesn’t directly equate to the uplifting of Black humanity on theological grounds. The question of how Jesus should be depicted in racial terms is more complicated than representing the “right” color. The push to remove white Jesus and…

Even though the church formally dissolved in January 2015, the distribution of their assets remains buried beneath a myriad of LLCs. (For more on that, go to wenatcheethehatchet.blogspot.com.)

…four decades.” As Pew continues to release its data over the course of the coming year, it might well find more changes than Gallup has in these other measures of religiosity, but the relative stability of these other markers do not make a case for a sudden and swift collapse of Christianity in America.

…tures their sense of the disorder of the last half century as they’ve been compelled to share cultural and political power with other groups. As it did centuries ago, apocalypse channels the persecuted group’s fear, focusing their resentment and properly directing their anger. Apocalypse’s crucial component for U.S. politics today is this extreme moral dualism, not the imminent End Times. Mostly opposed to desegregation and Civil Rights at the tim…

Tokyo Governor Says Tsunami is Divine Punishment—Religious Groups Ignore Him

…that exemplifies the Japanese character. It’s difficult to view Ishihara’s comments as anything other than an ideological rant, and one that may come back to haunt him in the next election. And while it appears as if Japan, like America, has its share of vocal public figures eager to equate disaster with apocalypse and to use mass human suffering as an excuse to propagandize, Japanese religious groups have joined together—largely under the media r…
