 In this video clip Zea--a 7-year-old first grader--stands up to bully religious right.

how evangelical Protestantism lost me

"This essay, which represents my first detailed public statement on how evangelical Protestantism lost me, is addressed both to those evangelicals who are celebrating momentum on LGBTQ acceptance within the “big tent,” as well as to those evangelicals whom I would describe as fundamentalist, or fundamental-ish. The ones who still represent the majority of evangelicals, the ones I come from." *** So writes Christopher Stroop, PhD, History and Humanities (Stanford University) and Senior Lecturer, S … [Read more...]

The Apologetics Lie my Daddy and Me Used to Tell

Here’s Another (Visual) Reason to Keep the Republicans out of the White House

Here's another reason to keep the Republicans out of the White House...they would not light up the White House in the rainbow of colors! Thanks Mr. President! Every single GOP candidate for president blasted the Supreme Court for making gay marriage a right the very same week they blasted them (and filed new lawsuits, no kidding!) for upholding health care for the poor, the very same week they defended the confederate flag. At least the GOP is consistent-- they just hate everyone... except … [Read more...]
