Pennsylvania bakery refused to sell wedding cake to lesbian couple. Owner “knows” she’s doing right.

Pennsylvania is a bit weird with regards to the LGBT.  It allows same-sex marriage, but has no legal protections in place for LGBT people: Pennsylvania is the only state where it is legal for same-sex couples to marry, but where there are no legal protections whatsoever for sexual orientation and gender identity. Statewide, there is [Read More...]

James Dobson: I’ve never said anything disparaging about gay people in my life.

It’s not that he’s lying, it’s just that he’s confused disparaging untruths with love.  On his radio show “Family Talk” (where I can only imagine they talk about how to stop people from forming families) Dobson recently said he’s never said anything disparaging about gay people in his life: This obviously struck me as strange, [Read More...]

Andrew Seidel on ending Christian privilege.

The FFRF is on a roll lately, and one of their attorneys, Andrew Seidel, just wrote a spectacular piece about how Fox News treats Christian privilege.  The FFRF just won another big victory, this time forcing the Navy to remove bibles from guest rooms at naval hotels.  Of course, Fox News thinks this is a [Read More...]

On the idea that Robin Williams’ problem was lack of Jesus.

Michaelyn saw a post by one of her facebook friends that made her almost vomit.  She sent it to me and I post it here because it’s not the only one like it I’ve seen, not by a long shot: That is all…smiley face.  And other Christians rush in to like it. Who knew that [Read More...]

Matt Staver is the head of Liberty Counsel and dean of the Liberty University School of Law, and he really doesn’t like the idea of marriage equality.  In a Radio America interview yesterday he said that Christians and Republicans who stay silent on the subject are just like those who gave their tacit consent in [Read More...]

Matt Barber: Conservatives should use civil disobedience to fight gay marriage.

Matt Barber is fed up with gay people not letting him run their private lives, and he thinks it’s time for his 78% majority of citizens to adopt the tactics of heroic minority movements of the past: civil disobedience. During an interview on REEL Talk, Barber said that “we are going to reach a point [Read More...]

Tennessee Governor declares day of prayer over students.

Tennessee’s Governor, Bill Haslem, has declared a day of prayer over students in Tennessee.  This day was yesterday, when volunteers were urged to go to campuses and pray in order to help education in the state.  Unsurprisingly, today education in the state is exactly the same.  So education wasn’t helped, which I would tell the people [Read More...]

Mary’s Diner may start the praying in public discount back up (includes poll that needs crushing).

Lately the internet has been abuzz with the story of the North Carolina diner that was offering people a 15% discount for praying in public.  I say “was” because the Freedom From Religion Foundation pointed out to them that this was discrimination.  You can’t charge people more based on their religious position.  It’s against the law, [Read More...]

The Buddy Pope…Catholic Church has officially killed satire.

I was pointed toward this tweet from the Religion News Service this morning: While Catholics protested the movie Dogma, it seems they’re taking some cues from it now: Satire is dead.  Get your Buddy Pope keychains!  Now who’s up for a miracle? Getting married to another man?  Get ready to burn in hell, buddy.  Don’t [Read More...]
