Will California face a backlash for its homophobic legislation like Uganda Did?

"So will the State of California face the threat of similar federal sanctions for its own proposed “kill the gays” referendum?

Religious Right Still Dominates the GOP

The GOP is still kowtowing to the Christian Right. When will that change? That the evangelical right already controls the GOP shouldn't really be in dispute. Not only do the Republicans do exactly as the Christian right tells them on every social issue, such as reproductive rights or gay rights, but Republicans also pay fealty to the Christian right by targeting Muslim countries with their hawkish posturing or using Christian language to rationalize slashing the social safety net.

Shame on the Homophobic Moral Cowards at Destiny Image Who Just Ripped Off Brandan Robertson

Brandan Robertson is my friend. He interviewed me several times at the Wild Goose Festival. The world of faith and hope is lucky to have this brilliant, kind lovey refugee from Moody Bible Institute. Now he's been screwed by the evangelical homophobic cowards. To hell with them. They put marketing above honor. A Christian book publisher has scrapped an author’s book deal – after he came out as queer. Evangelical writer Brandan Robertson had signed a deal last year for Destiny Image to publish hi … [Read more...]

Or as I write in my new book WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to give love, create beauty and find peace (Chapter 9, page, 45): Sam likes to call me out of the blue and casually mention the latest dumb stunt perpetrated by the Religious Right, the Roman Catholic bishops or the Republican Party, as if I have anything to … [Read more...]
