BREAKING: Make that 32 states with gay marriage. 9th Circuit strikes down bans in Idaho and Nevada!

Ted Cruz totally opposed to amending the Constitution, except when he’s for it.

Many of us saw yesterday that Ted Cruz vowed to pass legislation that will unmake all this gay marriage equality ickiness.  In my rebuttal to Tony Perkins I highlighted why this will never happen: 1.  This will never pass.  The nation favors same-sex marriage right now, which means that even if you got enough votes [Read More...]

Brian Brown from NOM is outraged at the Supreme Court, and he’s got a bunch of trite, easily debunked arguments to express his displeasure: We are surprised and extremely disappointed that the US Supreme Court has refused to grant review of the same-sex marriage cases pending before them.

In which I try to comfort Peter LaBarbera.

It’s strange.  In the wake of an avalanche of marriage equality cases having their stays lifted, none of the usual merry band of people determined to make the word “family” synonymous with discrimination have made a peep.  Nothing from Bryan Fischer, Matt Barber, etc. But Peter LaBarbera, leader of American for Truth About Homosexuality (the [Read More...]

BREAKING: Supreme Court denies review in all same-sex marriage cases.

In a surprise move the SCOTUS has said it won’t hear any of the marriage equality cases facing it right now: The Supreme Court refused to get involved in the national debate over same-sex marriage Monday, leaving intact lower court rulings that will legalize the practice in 11 additional states. The unexpected decision by the justices, [Read More...]
