Appeals Court to Kim Davis: No Stay for You!


In terribly unsurprising news, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis' request for a stay on the district court's injunction requiring her to begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. That leaves only one option left, asking Justice Elena Kagan to issue a stay and the chances of that happening are slim and none and slim is on her summer vacation. … [Read more...]

American Catholics More Liberal Than Church, Most Americans


I've always found it fascinating that most of the people who attend Catholic churches don't actually believe a large portion of the church's official doctrines, from the perpetual virginity of Mary to literal transubstantiation to the evils of birth control. A new survey reveals that not only are most American Catholics out of step with the church, they're more liberal on most issues than the average American is. … [Read more...]

Jeb Bush Lies About Planned Parenthood

Jeb Bush, whose grandfather helped found Planned Parenthood, is nonetheless more than happy to tell blatant lies about that organization in a desperate attempt to gain ground in a Republican presidential race in which Donald Trump has sucked up all the oxygen in the room. He hosted a townhall meeting in Colorado in which he said that Planned Parenthood they're "not doing women's health." Two reporters tweeted his comments: … [Read more...]

Beck Responds to Black Monday


As everyone knows by now, the stock market took a huge dive on Friday and Monday, though it rebounded some on Tuesday. It's being blamed on the economy of China being in the tank and most analysts are saying relax, it's not that big a deal, we aren't in for some huge economic crash. But for the paranoid far right, of course, it's proof that God is punishing us, a harbinger of the end of the world, you know the drill. Glenn Beck, you're up: … [Read more...]

Tired of Democrats and Republicans? Vote for the Christian Party

Church and State

A Tennessee man, apparently thinking that the Republican Party, or even the Constitution Party, just aren't quite Christian enough for him, has formed the Christian Party and declared himself a candidate for president. Darrell Trigg is running on a plainly theocratic platform, though not as extreme as the Constitution Party, which is made up mostly of Christian Reconstructionists. … [Read more...]

Already faced with criticism for his blatantly racist campaign against Mexican immigration and for having every white supremacist in the country seemingly coming out of the woodwork to declare their love for him, now Donald Trump has nailed down another huge endorsement that should help his campaign: David Duke. The former KKK grand wizard and frequent candidate for office says Trump is the right choice for Republicans. … [Read more...]

Government Scores Another Victory in the War on Orgasms

The federal government, apparently fresh out of actual victims to protect, raided the offices of, a site set up to broker deals between gay escorts and those who want to employ their services. And guess who made the bust? The Department of Homeland Security. Because that's what we want them to do, isn't it? We don't want them protecting us from terrorism, we want them arresting people for having consensual sex for money. … [Read more...]

Cindy Jacobs Makes Woman Grow Three Inches!


Longtime readers of this blog know how much I love making fun of Cindy Jacobs, self-declared "prophet" and faith healer whose prayers are so powerful that they are able to conjure up a bottomless bowl of spaghetti (no word whether the lord also provided unlimited salad and breadsticks). Her latest miraculous claim, provided with no evidence at all, is that she made a woman grow three inches spontaneously during one of her revivals. … [Read more...]

Kristol Looking for a New Republican Savior


Bill Kristol, the wrongingest political pundit who ever wronged, is worried about the current Republican field. He's afraid that the Republicans may be in trouble for 2016, comparing them to the Democrats in 1988 when Michael Dukakis was their nominee in what was the single most boring election in history. So he wants the GOP to start thinking about drafting a ringer to come in and save the day. And his list of names is....amusing. … [Read more...]

The Thrusting of Gay History Classes


The Worldnetdaily headline says "'GAY' HISTORY THRUST INTO U.S. CLASSROOMS." Yes, thrust into classrooms. It's being rammed down the throat of students. Schools are being sodomized by gay history. No one loves homoerotic language more than homophobes. This is in reference to an elective class in gay history being taught at a single school in San Francisco. It is, of course, the end of the world and dogs and cats will soon be living together. … [Read more...]

Another Absolutely Clueless Teacher in Mississippi

Church and State

I think maybe we need some sort of tote board to keep track of all of the Establishment Clause violations committed by teachers and school administrators in Mississippi, but it might need to have at least 8 digits on it. Here's yet another example, a teacher in the town of Purvis who keeps a prayer request board in her classroom and writes down the names of students she's praying for on it. The American Humanist Association is rightly getting involved: … [Read more...]

Pat Robertson’s God Works in Really Mysterious Ways


I've written many times about that segment on the 700 Club every day when Pat Robertson answers questions from viewers. When I see a clip from it, I have to make sure there's a towel on my desk lest I get a concussion from my head hitting it at a high rate of speed. On Monday, he decided to throw in a really bizarre story about how God spared a man from having to take care of a woman who became an invalid by deliberately ruining their relationship: … [Read more...]
