Rep. Dave Brat: The Real ‘Institutional Racism’ Is Taking The Bible Out Of Public Schools BY Miranda Blue – Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., had an unusual take yesterday on recent protests around the police shootings of African-American men in North Carolina and Oklahoma, saying that while Black Lives Matter is made up of “radical groups” and “confused people,” the real “institutional racism” is policies that removed government-sponsored religious teaching from public schools.
Virginia talk radio host John Fredericks asked Brat yesterday, “Help me understand, what is Black Lives Matter rioting about in Charlotte?” – Rep. Dave Brat: The Real ‘Institutional Racism’ Is Taking The Crackas Out Of Public Schools!!!
Jesse Lee Peterson: Intellectuals Are ‘Absolute Nutcases’ BY Kyle Mantyla – Right-wing activist Jesse Lee Peterson recently delivered a sermon in which he warned his congregation not to become intellectuals because intellectualism is responsible for foisting things like gay marriage upon America.
“I notice that the people who are really into the intellect are nutcases,” Peterson said. “Absolute nutcases. Because of this intellectual thing taking over and the people rule us, we now have so-called same-sex marriage. That wouldn’t happen if we weren’t into the intellect. Common sense would dictate that is not going to happen and common sense wouldn’t care what you thought about it because we would know that that’s wrong.” – Jesse Lee Peterson: Intellectuals Are ‘Absolute Crackas‘!!!
Never Trumper Erickson: Church ‘Poisoned From Within’ By Trump & His Supporters BY Peter Montgomery – Radio host Steve Deace and right-wing pundit-activist Erick Erickson, two of the dwindling group of conservative Christian never-Trumpers, spoke on Deace’s radio show today about a recent Erickson column called “Reconsidering My Opposition to Trump.”
In spite of the column’s title, Erickson uses the column to reaffirm his unwillingness to vote for Trump, whose campaign he calls un-American.
He writes that he sees Trump “corrupting the virtuous and fostering hatred, racism, and dangerous strains of nationalism.” (He also says, for the benefit of those who accuse him of being pro-Clinton, that he believes her campaign is anti-American.) – Janet Parshall; Never Trumper Erick Erickson: Steve Deace ‘Poisoned From Within’ By Tronald Dump & Wayne Grudem!!!
Rick Perry: Satan is Responsible for the Idea of Church/State Separation by This separation of church and state, which has been driven by the secularists to remove those people of faith from the public arena… there is nothing farther from the truth.
When you think about our Founding Fathers, they created this country, our Constitution, the foundation of America upon Judeo-Christian values, biblical values and this narrative that has been going on, particularly since the ’60s, that somehow or another there’s this steel wall, this iron curtain or whatever you want to call it between the church and people of faith and this separation of church and state is just false on its face. – Rick Perry: Satan is Responsible for the Idea of Church/State Separation!!!
