Taylor Swift is turning your children gay.

I knew she was up to something: Larry Tomczak is now suggesting children are learning ‘homosexuality is a beautiful way of life’ because of the many pro-gay messages on television. Well, they’re learning that love is beautiful…because it is.  They’re also learning that being gay is acceptable…because it is. He suggests people like Ellen DeGeneres [Read More…]

There are mainstream figures who really aren’t convinced Charlie Hebdo’s cartoonists didn’t deserve to die.

Terry Firma over at the Friendly Atheist blog has a collection of comments from people who are not insignificant essentially saying the journalists at Charlie Hebdo who were shot for drawing cartoons of Muhammad were not entirely blameless.  To quote his warning of caution from atop his post: [Caution: This post contains brain-crunching sentiments like “They asked [Read More…]

Father’s take on the community’s reaction to the nativity lawsuit in my hometown.

My father wrote up his thoughts on the behavior of many of the locals with regards to the AHA’s lawsuit against Baxter County for discriminating against non-Christians: I find myself bemused by the number of timeless—or timeworn, as the case may be—-themes I see being played out in our little local nativity on the square [Read More…]

Hate mail on the Baxter County nativity.

Dessa Blackthorn, the plaintiff in the AHA’s suit against my hometown for, frankly, discriminating against its non-Christian citizens, has been kind enough to forward me some of her hate mail (if you want to see the type of stuff she’s getting in public, check out Paul Theresa Jaques, the legend).  First up is Sue Snider: [Read More…]

More on the Baxter County nativity lawsuit: the legend of Paul Theresa Jaques.

Got ourselves another winner in the comments of the local paper establishing why people are reticent to challenge religious privilege in the South. The guy says that if somebody doesn’t like Christians getting access to government land that’s denied to everybody else, they should leave.  That’s kind of like the bully telling the person whose [Read More…]

Letters to the editor about the nativity: Stephen J. Lemmons.

Today’s last letter to the editor is from Stephen J. Lemmons: To Appignani Humanist Legal Center: I, a lone individual, Christian, am filing my complaint with you because someone is interfering with my Christmas holidays.

Letters to the editor on the nativity: James Crawford.

Our next offering in the local paper’s opinion section comes from James Crawford: Do you ever wonder why Humanists like Dessa Blackthorn get so upset over manger scenes… You mean the Dessa Blackthorn who’s in the comments section of previous articles saying she likes the manger scene? …while Christians mostly stand idly by when others [Read More…]
