Look out world, Pope Progressive is out and about being all progressive: Pope Francis has released a 94-point document endorsing a call for a more merciful and less judgmental church. If the Catholic Church is supposed to be such a moral leader, why are they always implying (or insisting) they get credit for meeting the [Read More…]
Pope Francis calls for a more merciful, less judgmental church (oh, and there’s absolutely no grounds for same-sex marriage).
Earlier this month I wrote about Mike Huckabee launching a boycott against Doritos due to Frito-Lay releasing limited edition bags of rainbow chips to benefit the It Gets Better Project (of course, when people boycott places Huckabee likes, then it’s economic terrorism…but just a boycott when Huck does it). That’ll show them. In fact, blogger [Read More…]
Hold the phone, everybody. I know we have the SCOTUS saying same-sex marriage is now legal, but Pat Robertson and, through him, god have weighed in on the matter and assure us that same-sex marriage remains illegal: Not only does Robertson seem to not have a grasp on how law works, he seems to be [Read More…]
American Family Association to post list of gay-hating businesses as if that will help rather than hurt them.
The American Family Association has a great idea: they’re going to find which businesses are anti-gay and publish a list so good, god-fearing Christians will know where to shop: It’s called the Corporate Religious Liberty Index (CRLI), and it will be compiled based on a short questionnaire (just seven questions) that “seeks to gauge the [Read More…]
Can the future get here sooner so it’s clear that every civilized person despises bigots of all stripes, including the anti-gay crowd?

Oh man, the right wing is going to be so happy to hear this. I’ve finally found one of these rogue justices they’re always complaining about – y’know, the ones who defy the Constitution and just attempt to get things their way regardless of what precedent establishes. His name is Justice Tom Parker of the [Read More…]

The students at Oak Park High School right here in Kansas City elected a trans prom queen. This, of course, prompted the Westboro Baptist Church to show up and protest. But the students rallied to her side and sent the WBC packing: Kids at Oak Park High School in Kansas City, Missouri elected their classmate [Read More…]
In collaboration with the It Gets Better Project Frito-Lay released limited edition bags of rainbow Doritos. Donate $10 or more to IGBP and you get mailed a bag (sadly, they’re all out now): I’m not into Doritos, but I thought it was a pretty cool gesture. You know who didn’t think it was very cool? [Read More…]
Ok, so the pope met with Kim Davis, but the details are a little fuzzy. Was Davis part of a line of people who got ferried past the pope who was none the wiser as to who any of them were? Or did the pope meet exclusively with Davis to support her? Before we get [Read More…]
