Sandy Rios: Michael Sam’s kiss could brainwash kids.

It takes a tremendous lack of self-awareness for somebody who’s a huge fan of childhood indoctrination to complain about kids being brainwashed.  But that’s exactly what Sandy Rios did the other day: Sandy Rios of the American Family Association once again brought up Michael Sam’s kiss on her anti-gay radio show this week in order to warn [Read More...]

BREAKING: Pennsylvania’s gay marriage ban is gone.

Man, marriage equality is getting work done this week.  A George W. Bush-appointed federal judge just became the 17th in a row to rule in favor of marriage equality. A federal judge has ruled that Pennsylvania’s state law banning same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, bringing the total number of state marriage amendments to be overturned in [Read More...]

Father and Abbot Kaplan team up on anti-marriage woman back home.

Karen Davidsayer is a local back home who wrote this letter to the editor of the local paper complaining that it isn’t conservative enough because it has a few liberal voices every now and again (and hinting at a boycott).  She’s a real winner.  The other day she got into it with my father and [Read More...]

Paul Ryan: poor people just aren’t loved enough, that’s why they’re poor.

Paul Ryan, who famously barged into a soup kitchen to wash already-clean pots and pans for a photo op before skipping out before any actual work could be done (just wanted to be seen helping the poor without actually helping the poor), was just speaking at a Manhattan Institute gathering with Jeb Bush.  In his talk, he hit [Read More...]

Judge rules that Utah must recognize same-sex marriages.

How lovely that on a day when I’m doing loads of wedding planning other Americans are getting the right to marry their partners.  :) A federal judge on Monday ruled that Utah must recognize the marriage licenses issued to same-sex couples before the Supreme Court issued a stay on the December ruling that struck down [Read More...]

BREAKING: Oregon joins the marriage equality party!

Sorry for the lack of content today.  I’ll be honest: Michaelyn and I are doing wedding stuff and just enjoying her first real day off in a long time.  She’s a college grad now: no classes on Monday.  :) Hopefully this cheerful news will make up for it: Oregon’s gay marriage ban is no more. [Read More...]

Pastor Becky Riggle: businesses have the right to refuse Jews for religious reasons.

Here’s a Houston preacher trying to convince the city council to enact a turn away the gays bill: Good on the councilwoman for calling her on her bullshit.  The look on her face at the end conveyed what she was thinking, which makes me wish she had vocalized what she was thinking. We don’t need [Read More...]

Gov. Otter’s request for a stay on the Idaho gay marriage ruling is rejected – for the best possible reason!

Gov. Otter had preemptively applied for a stay should Idaho’s gay marriage ban be ruled unconstitutional.  Otter said, with a tone of pride usually reserved for members of this “religion of humility” telling others how to comport themselves, that he would appeal this all the way to the Supreme Court!  Well, that request has just [Read More...]

Ohio teacher at Catholic school refuses to sign contract that requires her to condemn her gay son.

This woman has more compassion than the men at the highest ranks of her church.  I wish she would renounce the Catholic Church, its policies, and their leaders.  Even if she still believes in god, she’s better than the Catholic Church by an incalculable degree. The controversial contract, introduced for all teachers by the Archdiocese [Read More...]

Businesses in Mississippi that deserve your patronage.

I wrote a while back how even before Mississippi passed its turn-away-the-gays bill how many businesses in the state were putting a sticker in their windows to protest.  The stickers read “We don’t discriminate: if you’re buying, we’re selling.” Now the ironically-named American Family Association has put out a list of these businesses saying… This [Read More...]
