Here’s all the stuff that didn’t make the blog today. The majority of Americans who have left religion claim science as the reason. This is why religion is having a difficult time in the information age. Trump’s campaign CEO, Steve Bannon, is registered to vote at a vacant address in Florida, a key swing state. [Read More…]
The rest of what’s going on: Catholic hospitals, Spongebob Squarepants, and convictions for assaulting gay people.
And if you look to your right you’ll see a Christian hypocrite, a species bountiful in Georgia: A Georgia pastor and and conservative political activist was arrested Friday morning on charges of child molestation and aggravated child molestation. Ken Adkins, 56, of St. Simons Island turned himself into police at about 9 a.m., according to officials with [Read More…]
Matt Staver gave a talk in Pennsylvania in April, the video for which has come to light now, in which he said that Obergefell didn’t count. Why? Because his religion says otherwise. Staver takes it a step further, suggesting civil unrest is necessary to get their way: “We are coming to a place, ladies and [Read More…]
Play Doh narrative on Trump isn’t wholly fair, but he should still take a hit for $100k donation to Tony Perkins.
Last week the governor of Louisiana told Donald Trump to stay away from the state so that resources weren’t diverted from recovery efforts from recent flooding. Trump ignored him to show up and help unload some supplies for literally less than a minute before leaving. Now, to be fair, the media is actually being a [Read More…]
For those unfamiliar with ol’ Flip, he was the guy who lost his mind in a garbled tirade about the Charlotte trans-friendly bathroom bill. Here he is trying to disrupt the Charlotte pride parade yesterday: Not much to say here but this: play this video in 50 years for all the Christians who are trying [Read More…]
Belize court invalidates law that criminalized gay sex and punished it with a penalty of ten years in jail.
Gay men can now be physical with one another in Belize without spending ten years in jail: Belize’s Criminal Code (Section 53) criminalised ‘carnal intercourse against the order of nature’ which included consensual sexual conduct between adult males in private. The law, which though rarely used carried a ten-year prison sentence, disproportionately impacted on the [Read More…]
Brian Brown, head of the National Organization for Marriage, loves to send out all sorts of doom-laced fundraising letters. Oh man, he’s all about it. But lately they’re just not working out for him and now he’s upset with NOM’s supporters for not ponying up the dough. The chastising letter from Brown complains: NOM began [Read More…]
Ethics charges against Roy Moore were not dismissed. He will stand trial, face removal from the bench.
I’ve read articles all week about the pro-Roy Moore protesters outside the courthouse in Montgomery. I can see them in my head, tiny bunches of general, but especially legal, ignorance packed into the finest stars and stripes frippery the local Wal-Mart had on sale. There they are, hoping the legal experts in that hall will likewise [Read More…]
Pastor Flip Benham absolutely loses his shit: promises bloodshed in the streets over LGBT rights bill.
So, this happened in Charlotte today: It’s worth noting that the Charlotte City Council is out of the equation now since the state government overturned their ordinance (and is going to lose a lawsuit over it). It’s pretty much the standard trope of threatening bad things unless somebody (in this case, the government) kowtows to [Read More…]
Oh man, if only hypocrisy cured strep throat, I’d be a regular spring chicken right now. Ok, Anthony Silva is the hardcore anti-gay Republican mayor of Stockton, CA. Last year Stockton gave the key to the city to god. Welp, it turns out Silva may just have a thing for men. Sorry, I said men, [Read More…]
