Christie Must Be Serious: He’s Playing The God Card

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie spent time during a town hall meeting opining about how liberty comes from God, not government.

The lead nincompoop of the religious right, Rick Santorum believes he has the cure to what ails America. Bibles. If only the evil left wasn’t so powerful and did away with the good book, gays would still be in their closets. In a speech Saturday to the far-right Awakening conference organized by Liberty Counsel, Rick […]

Separation of church and state is a hard thing for people to grasp. Without it, you have things like the Thirty Years’ War, a brutal war between Protestants and Catholics in (where else?)

Republicans in Idaho say the state should be declared “Judeo-Christian” as a means of returning to constitutional roots and the Founding Fathers’ visions, and they’ve pressed forward with a resolution to do just that – albeit symbolically only. The resolution was due for vote by the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee and was nonbinding. But […]

Fair and balanced. The bill, authored by Oklahoma Rep. Dan Fisher, designates a total of 58 documents that “shall form the base level of academic content for all United States History courses offered in the schools in the state.” Many of the texts are uncontroversial and undoubtedly covered by the Advanced Placement U.S. History course, […]

The battle to remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance in New Jersey is over. When an unidentified New Jersey family sued the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District in February 2014, they claimed the the phrase “under God” was discriminatory. The American Humanist Association took the case and told the court that the pledge violated […]
