Let Me Address All the Bigots and Fools Bashing Caitlyn Jenner Following Inspirational ESPY Speech

Let me start off by saying I didn’t think Caitlyn Jenner should have won the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at ESPN’s annual awards ceremony, the ESPY’s. Personally I feel it should have gone to 19-year-old Lauren Hill, the freshman basketball player at Mount St. Joseph University who died this past April from pediatric brain cancer. If […]

5 Ways Liberals Are Much More Constitutional Than Conservatives

I’ll admit, this article is a direct result of a back and forth debate I had this afternoon with a conservative. This debate centered around this person’s belief that conservatives are people who support “Constitutional values,” while liberals are constantly trying to undermine our Constitutionally protected rights. So I decided I’d list my top five […]

Dear Rick Perry: We Don’t Give a Damn What You Think About Homosexuality

Maybe it’s the fact that I didn’t have any coffee this morning, but for some reason when I read Texas Governor Rick Perry’s comments comparing homosexuality to alcoholism, it just set me off. Not because these kinds of comments shock me.  Because let’s be honest, comparing homosexuality to alcoholism isn’t anything close to some of […]

Texas’ Ban on Gay Marriage Struck Down by Federal Judge

In a move that shouldn’t shock anyone who has read the First Amendment to our Constitution and understands what “freedom of religion” means, a federal judge has struck down Texas’ ban on same-sex marriage in the state.  Though this ruling leaves the ban in place until an appeals court hears the case later in the […]

States’ Rights: Breaking Down the Historic Rallying Cry of the Hateful and Ignorant

I’m a big believer in learning from history.  As the saying goes, those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.  This is a common statement I use when debating “states’ rights” advocates. Not that I dismiss our Tenth Amendment, or the fact that states are granted certain rights over their own […]

Let’s Use Common Sense: Why Would God Care About Homosexuality?

As many of you might already know, I’m a Christian.  That being said, I’m a Christian who doesn’t put much emphasis on man-made tools for practicing faith.  I’ve never placed a huge deal of importance on church, and while the Bible has a lot of good passages, it’s been rewritten and translated so many times it’s […]

Glenn Beck Makes Stunning Claim About LGBT Rights

Sometimes a headline floats across my computer screen or iPhone where I just sit there for a moment thinking to myself, “Did I really just read that?”  Usually these moments are triggered by a comment some conservative said that is so utterly ridiculous my brain can’t grasp the reality that someone actually said it. However, […]

Those Calling 2013 “Obama’s Worst Year Yet” Prove They Don’t Know What They’re Talking About

I have to laugh at this wave toward the end of the year of people saying 2013 was Obama’s worst year since he became president.  I’m sorry, but I just don’t get that. Why was this his worst year?  Because of an IRS “scandal” Republicans pushed relentlessly until it the facts came out that showed […]

Liberals Score Huge Victory as Texas Reverses Course on Military Discrimination

Well, this is definitely something to be thankful for.  Maybe some of you have heard about the blatant discrimination several states have been participating in as it relates to the treatment of our brave men and women in our military.  Some states, in defiance of Pentagon orders, weren’t registering same-sex couples for marriage benefits on […]

Only to Republicans is Supporting Equality Somehow an Attack on Freedom

I think it goes without saying, as someone with my political views, I just don’t understand the inner workings of the mind of a Republican.  I can still remember the first time someone explained trickle-down economics to me and thinking to myself, “That doesn’t make any sense.” Something else Republicans seem to do that doesn’t […]
