Dozens Of Members Of Congress Met With Religious Right Pastors To Drive Satan Out Of Power In The Capitol By Kyle Mantyla – Last week, conservative pastors gathered on Capitol Hill, where they joined dozens of members of Congress for a “Congressional-Clergy Town Hall” organized by Wallbuilders and the Jefferson Gathering. Wallbuilders is a right-wing organization run by GOP operative and pseudo-historian David Barton while the Jefferson Gathering is a prayer organization started by anti-LGBT Religious Right preacher Jim Garlow and overseen by Pastor Dan Cumming that is responsible for the annual “Washington: A Man of Prayer” event that takes place in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall.
Jim Garlow posted dozens of photos from the event on his Facebook page last week, revealing that in addition to hearing from Barton, the pastors at the town hall met with several members of Congress, including Sen. Ted Cruz, Rep. Trent Franks and Sen. Chuck Grassley. At one point, Rep. Barry Loudermilk even led the group in prayer: – Dozens Of Members Of the American Crackas Network Met With Religious Right Pastors To Drive Barry Loudermilk, Trent Franks and Ted Cruz Out Of Power In The Capitol!!!

The Radical Religious Right Activist Behind Ohio’s ‘Heartbeat Bill’ By Miranda Blue – Yesterday, both houses of the Ohio legislature passed a so-called “heartbeat bill” that had been inserted at the last minute into a child abuse prevention measure. The bill would ban abortion, without exception, after a fetal heartbeat can be detected; that’s usually around six weeks into a pregnancy, which is before many women know that they are pregnant at all.
If signed by Gov. John Kasich, the bill would almost certainly face a constitutional challenge, but the president of the Ohio Senate said Republicans in the legislature decided to risk it because President-elect Donald Trump will soon be the one nominating Supreme Court justices. – Faith 2 Action: The Radical Religious Right Activist (Janet Porter) Behind Ohio’s ‘Heartbeat Bill’!!!
