Matt Barber: “the left moves to outlaw Christianity.”

Thanks again, special twitter list, for this: Holy shit!  We’re outlawing Christianity?  Like, if you believe in Jesus you’d be arrested, fined, and/or thrown in jail?  That’s horrible!  Horrible…and unlikely in a nation run by Christians in which the majority are Christian.  What, did a bunch of Christians just up and say “You know who [Read More...]

County Commissionar in Maryland defies judge, plays martyr at the thought of going to jail.

Back in April both Hemant and I wrote pieces about Carroll County (Maryland) Commissioner Robin Bartlett Frazier.  Frazier opened city meetings with sectarian prayers to Jesus.  Some members of the community felt it was inappropriate (including a local Catholic) and the American Humanist Association filed a lawsuit on their behalf, which they won.  Frazier twice [Read More...]

The Hobby Lobby ruling gets worse and worse.

Immediately after the SCOTUS ruling on Hobby Lobby other religious organizations decided to see what laws they could get exempt from on religious grounds.  First up is non-discrimination laws: Fourteen prominent faith leaders — including some of President Obama’s closest advisers — want the White House to create a religious exemption from his planned executive [Read More...]

Pope Fluffy: if you don’t have kids you’ll be bitter and lonely.

I’ve never wanted kids.  Michaelyn has had to beg and give hours upon hours of the pleading wife eyes to get me to consent to having one.  I feel no guilt about not wanting to have a child.  After all, plenty of studies have shown that people without children are happier.  The most recent study [Read More...]
