Science to the rescue! World’s first malaria vaccine approved and on its way to Africa.

Malaria has plagued Africa for a really, really long time.  It has shown no discrimination in the process.  Children?  They’re fair game too.  Undoubtedly prayer after prayer has been sent up to a god whose only communication back has been to say “I either don’t care or don’t exist” through his inaction. But where prayer [Read More...]

ACLU thanks highly conservative lawmaker from Arkansas for the $100,000 “contribution” to future lawsuits.

A constant theme on this blog is a state senator from my home state of Arkansas, Jason Rapert, because he’s constantly being terrible. This is the guy who was beside himself that a gay pride parade could be held on a Sunday.  He also wanted to impeach the judge who struck down the state’s gay marriage [Read More...]

Louisiana shooter was a Tea Partier and a fan of the Westboro Baptist Church, but I’m not sure either is relevant.

I generally don’t talk about mass shootings much on the blog.  For one, it’s not in my wheelhouse.  For another, everybody who’s being fair already knows the solution: stricter gun control laws.  After every shooting we’re outraged, and it seems one camp wants to pray and do nothing else besides continuing to support Republicans who [Read More...]

Duggars go from their show getting cancelled being “a blessing” to being heartbroken in about a week.

A week ago the Duggars were saying they were looking at the cancellation of their TV show as a blessing.  Now that the reality has set in they’re singing a very different tune: The cancellation came two months after a 2006 police report surfaced revealing that Josh Duggar had been accused at age 14 of [Read More...]

Federal court rules Washington pharmacists must dispense birth control regardless of religious beliefs.

Theodore Shoebat: we have to kill gay people before they brainwash our kids into Christian-killing Nazis.

Oh JT!  Stop it with your sensationalized blog titles.  Heh, I wish. Every day since the Obergefell ruling it seems religious leaders say increasingly more bizarre things about LGBT people.  Theodore Shoebat, who regularly appears in columns and documentaries beside top tier GOP lawmakers, has today’s biggest hit: I believe that the reason why the [Read More...]
