Televangelist Jim Bakker: “Only ‘saved’ people can love Trump.”

TV evangelist Jim Bakker says Donald Trump is a test of faith and that Christians can pass by loving him. Watch: https://twitter.com/RightWingWatch/status/1214246794005221378 This is yet another case of an Evangelical fraud spinning their moral compass and stumping for Trump, despite their own history of wrong doings. While Bakker is back on television hawking doomsday prep meals and supplies, it wasn't too long ago he was paying hush money to women accusing him of sexual misconduct and serving time in prison for fraud.   Bakker cries as he's arrested for fraud - 1989   For those who are unaware [...]

Open letter: To fellow Democrats. Why that impeachment asterisk matters, no matter the outcome.

Dear fellow Democrats, An asterisk is just a punctuation mark. It denotes a footnote, an exception, or a caveat. It doesn’t usually provide anything more than background or context. But today it’s a victory. Because for only the third time in history, a president will forever live with one next to his name. Trump has demeaned himself and the office he's held for three years. We’ve watched as he denigrated women (grab them by the...), undermined the rule of law (obstructing the constitutional authority of Congress to investigate wrongdoing by the Executive), and sold out America’s interests to foreign powers [...]

Addressing the audience, the former President said: "Now women, I just want you to know; you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you're better than us [men]. I'm absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see a significant improvement across the board on just about everything... living standards and outcomes."     [...]

Pennsylvania bill could require death certificates for fertilized eggs.

Anti-abortion lawmakers in Pennsylvania are pushing a bill that would require burial or cremation and, as a result, a death certificate for the "fetal remains" of an "unborn child." The bill is a maze of hidden intentions.  On its face, and as touted by its primary author, it gives women who miscarry the right to decide whether to bury their own fetal remains.  But the bill, as drafted, has far more reaching consequences.  The bill would extend the burial requirements to any "product of conception" and defines an "unborn child" as beginning "from fertilization."  And because Pennsylvania law requires a [...]
