Theodore Shoebat Does Not Surprise

Shoebat the Greater Goes on Bizarre Rant About Orlando Massacre

Fake "ex-terrorist" Walid Shoebat, who is every bit as much of a Christian fascist as his son Theodore, went on a rather bizarre diatribe after the massacre in Orlando, Florida.

Another Woman Brutally Murdered in Pakistan

Here's another story out of Pakistan that is so barbaric that it turns my stomach to even think about it. A school teacher was beaten and set on fire by a mob of men after turning down a marriage proposal from the son of the man who owns the school she teaches at. … [Read more...]

Wingnuts Defend Roy Moore from Demonic Drag Queens

A group of anti-gay bigots gathered on Saturday to defend the honor of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore. Naturally, they implored God to intervene in the proceedings of his ethics complaint.
