5 things you REALLY mean when you say “I don’t approve of your homosexual lifestyle”

6782

The phrase “homosexual lifestyle” gets thrown around a lot by conservatives when jockeying for political power or popularity points. Sadly it seems it gets used even more so by otherwise nice enough people when they want to claim how much they love gay people, they  just “don’t approve of their lifestyle.” UGH! Please, God, please [Read More...]

Fundies just love the gays to death

Matthew Paul Turner wrote this kick-ass post rounding up all the shards from the evanglisphere that have pierced my heart these past two weeks. Earlier this week I sat my fanny down to try to pull all these hateful shenanigans together into a single post of my own but it was far too painful to [Read More...]

Ducked-Up Bibles and Blood Money

This post really just wrote itself, y’all. All I had to do was just sit still for a while, try to keep my head from exploding, heart from breaking and pull together some rancid nuggets from the interwebs. We’ve learned recently that Thomas Nelson publishers are planning to release a Duck Dynasty branded Bible in [Read More...]

Gay marriage causes harm…how?

First Gay Wedding Show In Paris

I heard today that Florida  is up to her tricks again and just can’t quite figure out how to looking intelligent, sane or compassionate in the 21st century (bless her heart). TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – The attorney general of Florida says in court documents that recognizing same sex marriages performed in other states would “impose [Read More...]

That Holy Spirit, She so Cray-Cray

Once upon a time in Las Vegas I learned the hard way that roller coasters are just not for me anymore.  There was a time in my youth when I was thrilled by careening around crazy curves, screaming down insanely steep hills and hurtling through maniacal loops.  But just over 10 years ago, much to [Read More...]

The season of LGBT Pride is just around the corner and today I watched a TED Talk by Andrew Solomon that I just had to share with you here. The entire talk is deeply inspiring and I have included a portion of the transcript here that resonated deeply with me. “We don’t seek the painful [Read More...]

Big Gay Common Core?

ccss2_360_363

According to a post over at ThinkProgress… Common Core may not be a well-intentioned set of improved educational standards, as supporters would have you believe, but instead a trojan horse designed to turn every schoolchild in Florida, if not America, gay. This ominous warning came at an anti-Common Core event in March courtesy of Florida State [Read More...]

Sooooo, last night I read a funny little diddy where some “Christians” in Mississippi are all in a lather because they WON the right to discriminate against gays and lesbians.  Wait, why on earth would these silly ignorant people be miffed vitriolic about WINNING the right to be ugly hateful.

So the other evening I posted a somewhat cryptic status update on Facebook that simply said “Dating is weird.”  I received a lot of likes and a slew of comments ranging from “Dating is wicked weird” to kind notes of sympathy (even though I just said weird, not bad) to even a slight rebuke claiming [Read More...]

God and the Gay [Evangelical] Christian

God-Gay-Christian-Book-Cover-Matthew-Vines1

Deborah Arca, who I lovingly (and maybe and maybe a bit delusionally) call my editor here at Patheos invited me to participate in this month’s book club featuring Matthew Vine’s new book God and The Gay Christian. Before I even opened the book I had an odd feeling about the task at hand. The very title God [Read More...]
