Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow, Franklin Graham and Jerry Falwell, Jr. Walk Into a Bar Mitzvah

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! Jerry, Jr., Franklin. Franklin, Jerry, Jr. I can hardly believe this is the first time the three of us have met—though of course I knew your fathers well. Sorry, Franklin, don’t want to bury your dad alongside Jerry, Sr., quite yet. But even I’ve got to admit that Billy would probably […]

The Texas GOP Is Preparing To Fight The Federal Government On Gay Marriage

While many states are grudgingly joining the 21st century on the issue of gay marriage, others states like Alabama and Texas are going all in and thumbing their noses at the federal government. The Supreme Court is widely expected to hand down a ruling next month which will likely sweep aside all remaining laws across […]

ND Republican Randy Boehning Embarrassingly Outed After Voting Against LGBT Rights

As the line from Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” goes, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” Variations of this famous line have been used in the centuries since Shakespeare first debuted his play to refer to someone whose opposition to something seems suspiciously exaggerated, and as if they have something to hide. Over the last couple of […]

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 […]

Kentucky Governor Offers Possibly the Most Absurd Argument Against Gay Marriage I’ve Ever Heard

No matter how much I try to understand it, I just can’t grasp why there are some people who are absolutely obsessed with the private lives of homosexuals – but there are millions of Americans who seem to be just that. The illogical and irrational comments I’ve seen made by many concerning gay rights and […]

Mike Huckabee Asked to Explain Negative Impact of Same-Sex Marriage – Proceeds to Embarrass Himself

The gay marriage “debate” is one that seems to never end. I use the word “debate” mockingly, because there’s not really a debate at all. Our First Amendment clearly says that laws in this country cannot be based on religion – period. Being that bans on same-sex marriage are completely derived from religious beliefs, they […]

Kansas Governor Just Legalized Discrimination Against Members of the LGBT Community

I’m not going to lie, when it comes to the debate over equal rights for members of the LGBT community in this country I’m utterly and completely exhausted. Not because I’m tired of fighting for these rights, but because I’m so sick and tired of the ridiculous arguments made by those who oppose giving members […]

5 Predictions for the Progressive Movement in 2015

It’s 2015 and there are no hoverboards or self-tying shoe laces, and the Cubs will forget they were supposed to play in the post-season once again. However, I would like to make some predictions about trends for the upcoming year regardless. The following listicle (oh, weren’t we supposed to bury that word in 2013? Sorry!) […]

Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert Insults Members Of Our Military With Ridiculous Rant (Video)

In what sounds like a story straight from The Onion or The National Report, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) stated that he opposed the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell because apparently all gay soldiers want to do is lay around and get massages all day. I’ve listened to his comments, and even read a transcript of them, and I […]

God Strikes Back At The Westboro Baptist Church, And You Can Help (Video)

God is good, and he keeps proving it on a regular basis. Now, that line may look wrong to some people, for various reasons. “Jason, aren’t you an agnostic?” Yes I am, despite being baptized into the Episcopal church and being confirmed in my younger days. I have since thought my way out of it […]
