Full story on the wedding chapel in Idaho that refused to marry gay couples.

Dunno if you’ve been listening to Pat Robertson lately, but there are deadly consequences to same-sex marriage (literally, he used the word “deadly”).  Nowhere, apparently, is this more obvious than in Idaho: Onslaught of sexual behavior!  Personally, I have very happy dreams about being on the receiving end of an onslaught of sexual behavior, but [Read More...]

Malaysian state: go to mosque or go to jail.

The Malaysian state of Kelatan is set to criminalize Muslim men skipping out on attending mosque. Lawyers for Liberty (LFL) issued a statement today opposing the announced plans of the government of the Malaysian state of Kelatan to enforce a provision of a 1994 law that criminalizes the failure of Muslim men to go for Friday prayers in [Read More...]

El Paso Atheists adopt a highway, receive hate.

Man, even when atheists do good shit it’s not enough for some people.  I saw this tweet about the El Paso Atheists cleaning up a highway (that Jesus was too busy to clean up with his all-powerfulness):   To be clear, the goal of this wasn’t to have atheists say “Oh man, Jesus does exist.

Study: Republicans lie about three times as much as Dems.

The Center for Media and Public Affairs (CMPA) at George Mason University has released a study that was picked up by Disifo.org, which I only mention because they had an amazingly worded opening to their post: Keep in mind the three times zero would be zero, so this study does not exonerate the Democrats.  The idea that [Read More...]

Daily Show on the failed Republican experiment in Kansas.

I’ve written a couple of times on how horribly fucked the state of Kansas is thanks to Gov. Brownback and a kowtowing GOP legislature letting him do whatever he wants.  But the Daily Show takes it to all new levels: The Daily Show Get More: Daily Show Full Episodes,The Daily Show on Facebook,Daily Show Video [Read More...]

The only way homosexuality could affect your marriage.

My father posted this image this morning and I felt it was good enough to be shared.  I will definitely get some use out of this quote: [Read more...]

I gave CJ Werleman the benefit of the doubt and it seems he’s determined to blow it.

I don’t regret withholding judgment on CJ.  I think the atheist movement could do with a bit more of that.  However, CJ seems determined to self-destruct.  His apology on facebook read pretty much as “Sam Harris’ fans are unfairly attacking me for things I’m sorry about and won’t do again.”  It’s just weird. And Sam [Read More...]

Why Arizona’s Republican Attorney General is not appealing the striking down of AZ’s gay marriage ban.

Republicans like to tout themselves as fiscal conservatives, but this claim becomes hypocritical when you see how eagerly they’ll waste tax-payer money seeking governmental privilege for Christians or fighting lawsuits they’re doomed to lose to rally their voting base. I’m happy to report that one Republican, Arizona’s Attorney General Tom Horne, seems to take the [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: my morning happiness.

This weekend I had one of my worst bouts with depression in recent memory.  I’ll save you details on how bad it was for now, but it was pretty rough.  I followed my list of coping maneuvers, reached out to confidante, and even asked for support on my facebook page.  Specifically I wrote: Having a [Read More...]

LaBarbera and Mefferd pine for an anti-gay Rosa Parks.

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (which ironically does little but spread lies) went on Janet Mefferd’s radio show where, together, they longed for a “Rosa Parks” who is the opposite of Rosa Parks in every way: One of the watershed moments, if not the watershed moment, of the civil rights movement was [Read More...]
