He's an ex-pastor because he famously became a universalist-- one who believes that God will ultimately save everyone, because, hey, He's just too loving to send anyone to hell. He was as wrong there as he is here. Somewhere along the way, this guy's worldly success started going to his head, and he started making it up as he went along. He and Joel Osteen are very much alike in this, and I don't listen to either one of them.

She doesn’t look happy at all so I’m doubting she liked it. I would have given the dirty old man an elbow to the gut!

So who/what is the pastor fact-checking with? Why don’t all clergy agree on the “facts”?
I would say because, in general, that religion doesn't deal with facts. It deals with people's interpretations of what they think a given diety said.
Lots of clergy (I know) as you call them don't take the text seriously enough are just glad that people are having some religious thoughts. They also struggle with the "blindspots" that we all struggle with.
Because some people believe in misconceptions and continue to teach them without fact checking from the source. For example many believe Lucifer is Satan. If they read Isaiah 14 in it's entirety and looked at key phrases they'd see the truth. Isaiah 14:4 that you will take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say...16“Those who see you will gaze at you,
And consider you, saying: ‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms (Satan isn't a man) 19-21 But you are cast out of your grave Like an abominable branch, Like the garment of those who are slain, Thrust through with a sword, Who go down to the stones of the pit, Like a corpse trodden underfoot. 20 You will not be joined with them in burial,
Because you have destroyed your land And slain your people. The brood of evildoers shall never be named. 21 Prepare slaughter for his children Because of the iniquity of their fathers, Lest they rise up and possess the land, And fill the face of the world with cities.... Satan can't die nor is he able to procreate. Besides the prophecies before and after this are about the people and lands thereof. Why in the middle of it would Isaiah go off and talk about Satan then back to the kingdoms? Therefore verse 4 is the key verse. People would benefit by studying more and accepting false doctrine less. Always check with God's word to get the truth.
Just the new nilSSon. Nothing new, just surprised he couldn't bring his Jews or Ron Paul into this story.
"Not quite the same thing since in THIS country we don’t buy dead dog at the butcher shop but nice try."
But in countries where they do, they think America is sick and evil for eating things they don't, like those who worship cows, for example.
And even in this country there are those who make pets out of things many other love to eat, such as those who have pet pigs, for example.
Also notice that there is no one calling for abortionists (I mean the average abortionist, not someone who like Gosnell, was sensationalized for his extra levels of cruelty beyond 'just' murdering, the innocent babies) to be tortured to death they way they demand for this woman in this story.
And since they believe Humans are just 'animals' that would make all abortions 'animal abuse', but there is not the SAME outrage for the animal abuse of abortions as there is, for cases like this story.

Nope, I walked out of that theater thinking that it didn’t glorify war in any way….perhaps you don’t get out of mom’s basement enough to have ACTUALLY watched the movie.

Does anyone actually read and pay attention to Moore’s tweets?
