Mike Huckabee Says American Christians Are Under Attack From Gays and ISIS

Mike Huckabee had better jump into GOP clown car before Gov. Bobby Jindal does, or he won’t be able to capture the votes of the far-right evangelical Christians who will play a pivotal role in deciding the early Republican primaries in 2016. The former governor of Arkansas hasn’t formally announced his 2016 candidacy for a […]

Bobby Jindal Whines That Republicans Need To Stop Cowering To ‘Shrieks’ From The ‘Radical Left’

By conservative measures, Bobby Jindal’s 7+ years as governor of Louisiana should be a raging success. Corporations get all sorts of tax breaks, the tax burden is shifted onto the poor and middle class, abortion restrictions are extremely tight, and Louisiana has so far rejected Medicaid expansion as well as marriage equality. Bobby Jindal didn’t […]

Experts Warn Louisiana’s “Religious Freedom” Bill Will Harm Their Economy

After recent bills in Arkansas and Indiana were updated to prohibit discrimination against LGBT people, Louisiana decided to try their own hand at creating a “religious freedom” bill which, as originally drafted, could have gone much further. Why would a state already facing a $1.6 billion budget gap and lacking the funds for the very […]

Jon Stewart Absolutely Destroys Republican Bigots: ‘Do You See How F*cked Up That Is?!’ (Video)

As most people have heard by now, the Indiana state legislature passed one of these so-called “religious freedom” laws that basically made it legal for businesses to discriminate against homosexuals by citing their religious beliefs.

Republicans Continue To Throw A Hissy Fit Because Capitalism Seems To Be Working In Indiana

Very often when Republicans talk about our economy you’ll hear many of them talk about letting consumer power decide things. The theory behind this absurd notion is that businesses will be forced to behave ethically and morally because “the consumer” will force them to. It’s one of those theories that sounds great, but almost never works. The […]

The Indiana Memories Pizza Fundraiser Is A Conservative Media Scam

By now, most of you have heard about the Indiana pizza shop that announced it would refuse to cater same-sex wedding ceremonies. I’m pretty sure most self-respecting gay couples wouldn’t serve pizza at their wedding receptions or rehearsals, but Memories Pizza went ahead and put their bigotry out there for everyone to know about it […]

Sen. Tom Cotton On LGBT Rights: ‘In Iran They Hang You For The Crime Of Being Gay’ (Video)

Senator Tom Cotton just doesn’t know when to shut up. Or more likely, he subscribes to the mentality that bad press is better than good press, because that’s the way to rally right-wing Republicans to his cause. That cause is being the rising Senate star of the GOP fringe and possibly a presidential candidate in […]

If You Thought Indiana’s Law Was Bad, Louisiana’s “Religious Freedom” Legislation Is Far Worse (UPDATE)

Here in Louisiana, anti-gay bigots are likely chomping at the bit and wetting their white robes in excitement over new pro-discrimination, “religious freedom” legislation which a Shreveport Republican will be introducing to the state legislature soon. Louisiana’s proposed legislation is not like the law in Indiana which could be used to discriminate against LGBT persons […]

Memories Pizza Is First Indiana Business To Deny Service To LGBT Customers

Let’s see a show of hands for all the married folks who served pizza at their wedding. Come on, don’t be shy. Did Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana do the catering? Is this an Indiana tradition, serving pizza at a wedding? The owners of Memories Pizza support the new and horrible Religious Freedom Restoration Act 100%, and to prove […]

HIV Is Making A Comeback, Thanks To Conservatives

Conservatives love to demonize Planned Parenthood, claiming that the organization is little more than an abortion mill. The real facts are that providing abortion services are a very small part of what Planned Parenthood does, but never let that fact get in the way of anti-choice protesters and the politicians who count on their votes.
