Pious liberals in showbiz and politics have long lectured conservatives on our alleged shortcomings, including sexism. But the new “speak out” culture has revealed that being a famous liberal scold doesn’t mean you don’t also have roaming hands and feet of clay. Now, they seem panicked that rules they championed for everyone else are being turned on them.

Minnesota Sen. Al Franken is the latest liberal to find himself under fire after former model-turned-radio host Leeann Tweeden accused him of sexual harassment during a USO tour in 2006. Tweeden claims Franken forcibly kissed her under the pretext of rehearsing a sketch he wrote. She also released a photo that he left for her, showing him grabbing her breasts and smiling at the camera when she was asleep on the plane.

Church of hubris

By Mike Huckabee

A former Google executive has filed papers with the IRS, seeking tax-exempt status for a “church” called “Way of the Future” that will worship technology and attempt to use artificial intelligence to create a “godhead” that will improve society. Three thoughts on this:

1. They should call it the Church of Hubris instead.

2. As with most spacey concepts, David Bowie thought of it first (in his 1971 song, “Saviour Machine,” and it did not end well).

3. As appalling as it sounds, it will probably win IRS tax-exempt status faster than most Tea Party groups did.

New Reuters poll

By Mike Huckabee

With the holidays near, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll finds that one-third of Americans plan to actively avoid bringing up politics at holiday gatherings. I’m amazed it isn’t three-thirds. If the rest of your family is trying to eat their turkey in peace, and you keep ranting about how Trump is a fascist, don’t be surprised if they tell you to stuff it, and I don’t mean the turkey.

Museum of the Bible opens

By Mike Huckabee

Here’s some good news, in several senses of the term: Today marks the grand opening of the long-awaited Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC (and if anyplace needs the Bible even more than a motel room, it’s Washington, DC). It’s an absolutely astounding, $500 million, 430,000-square-foot interactive museum that brings all the books of the Bible to life for modern visitors.

Trump threatens Church of Scientology tax exempt status

By Mike Huckabee

President Trump is reportedly interested in revoking the tax-exempt status of the Church of Scientology. The story sparked stern warnings from the Huffington Post that any such move must be taken independently by the IRS, because it would be inappropriate for the White House to influence IRS decisions over which groups are granted tax-exempt status. Raising the question: “Where were HuffPo’s editors during the 2012 election campaign, when the Obama IRS was blocking tax-exempt applications by Tea Party groups?” Oh yeah, I remember: they were campaigning for Obama.

-----------------------

Roy Moore update

The allegations against Roy Moore in Alabama are piling up, but so are his flat-out denials, and now, so are the holes in some of the stories. This is why we have due process and rules of evidence. I know it’s frustrating for those who want to see legitimate victims get immediate justice; but if you’re ever falsely accused (as I once was, in a bogus, partisan financial impropriety lawsuit that was thrown out of court), you’ll be awfully glad we try people in courts of law instead of in newspapers or on the Internet.

    Is Hillary ever going to be put in jail where she belongs? I love you weekend show you have. I also applaud you for raising a fine daughter in Sarah. I feel sorry some times the way the press treats her but she has the guts to fire back.

    Re: "Church of Hubris"
    I really enjoyed reading your commentary and thought it was spot on. As a minister you may recall in "The Revelation According St. John" he mentions that an image will be made that is a likeness to the beast and this image will be able to speak. What would John have thought of this vision of our modern time if he saw a computer based machine installed in a statue or "likeness:"? This technology has been around for almost 2 decades... soooo.... this fellow's First Hubricity Church may be approaching something that we may do well to keep an eye on. After all, the father of confusion/deception will be a master of modern tech.
    A side note...
    My dad hung the bell in the steeple of the First Baptist Church of Pascagoula... before the squirrels moved in.
