There’s a political battle raging in Louisiana right now over how to teach basic arithmetic. Educators and Sen. David Vitter support the new common core standards (if you don’t know what they are, see Hemant’s write up). Gov. Bobby Jindal opposes them for some strange reason that seems to have something to do with schools [Read More...]

I wasn’t even done having a good ol’ fashioned chuckle at this whole situation when I saw this tweet from Bryan Fischer in my special feed: Funny story about your “credible information,” buddy: no District Attorney indicted Rick Perry. Perry was indicted by a grand jury. But that’s just how insidious these gays are! They [Read More...]
Pennsylvania bakery refused to sell wedding cake to lesbian couple. Owner “knows” she’s doing right.
Pennsylvania is a bit weird with regards to the LGBT. It allows same-sex marriage, but has no legal protections in place for LGBT people: Pennsylvania is the only state where it is legal for same-sex couples to marry, but where there are no legal protections whatsoever for sexual orientation and gender identity. Statewide, there is [Read More...]
It’s not that he’s lying, it’s just that he’s confused disparaging untruths with love.

Hot damn! This is great. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit today denied a request to delay implementation of its ruling striking down Virginia laws denying marriage to same-sex couples. The court’s action means that, unless the Supreme Court intervenes, couples may begin marrying and having their out-of-state marriages recognized in Virginia [Read More...]
Matt Barber is fed up with gay people not letting him run their private lives, and he thinks it’s time for his 78% majority of citizens to adopt the tactics of heroic minority movements of the past: civil disobedience. During an interview on REEL Talk, Barber said that “we are going to reach a point [Read More...]
In 1968 a restaurant owner went before the SCOTUS to say racial discrimination was ok because of religion.
It’s relevant to know, for all of us fighting for gay rights, that in 1968 a South Carolina restaurant owner did argue before the SCOTUS that he shouldn’t have to serve black people on account of his religious beliefs. The man was Maurice Bessinger who owned Piggie Park BBQ. The attorney representing the petitioners suing Piggie [Read More...]
