Anti-Gay Christian Lawmakers in Michigan Will Not Resign Despite Their Affair and Cover-Up

Last week, in the weirdest political sex scandal I’ve heard in a long while, it was revealed that Michigan State Rep. Todd Courser had an affair with the also-married Rep.

Turkish Atheists Give Soup to the Homeless Every Week

In 2014, the first physical building dedicated to atheism opened up in Turkey. But the obstacles have come one after another since then. A court order blocked their website earlier this year, and death threats have led to the installation of a panic button in their building that directly connects to the local police.
