There's an exclamation point on that headline to indicate the level of shock you should feel upon reading it.

Fischer Still Totally Incoherent on the First Amendment


Bryan Fischer's views of the First Amendment have always been contradictory and absurd, but I don't recall him contradicting himself so blatantly in the same rant before. He claims that NASA is violating the Free Exercise Clause by banning mentions of Jesus in their newsletter. So let's look at what he says: … [Read more...]

Now that deranged bigot James David Manning's church is up for tax auction, the Ali Forney Center wants to buy it and turn it into a shelter for homeless LGBT youth.
