Pennsylvania won’t defend gay marriage ban.

Pennsylvania was one of the many states that voted in a gay marriage ban with the influx of the Tea Party.  However, following in the footsteps of California with Proposition 8, it’s now likely they won’t defend it against a suit filed by the ACLU. Attorney General Kathleen Kane is expected to announce Thursday that [Read More...]

Resolution with Dorothy.

Remember my dad’s exchange with Dorothy?  I’m happy to report a happy ending to that discussion.  Dorothy responded with: This has taken me a while to respond because I wanted to read and ponder what you opponents to my argument had to say. I must say that I’m very impressed with John’s knowledge and passion [Read More...]

Dad vs. Dorothy.

The following exchange took place on a facebook thread between dad and Dorothy, whose name has been changed for the purposes of this post.  Dorothy opened with: Oops [NAME OF OP OMITTED]. Our Constitution says nothing of freedom FROM religion, only OF. The whole idea of FROM is simply that the government should not impose [Read More...]

To Arms! – Heavenly Pizza Promotes Massacre of Gay People

When it comes to picking cherries, Heavenly Pizza fills a whole pie. Heavenly Pizza posted a reference to Leviticus after the Supreme Court decisions last week. Looking it up was an exercise in excess caution. Leviticus 20:13 says exactly what we predicted it would say: If a man lies with a male as with a [Read More...]

Start your day with pictures, one terrible, one beautiful.

Lose-lose, sorry women in the Old Testament. Let’s face it: god doesn’t exactly have that whole “love” or “justice” thing down.  Thankfully, most humans have an appreciation for both when they’re not trying to emulate god: [Read more...]

What the DOMA and Prop 8 Cases Mean

Anne here. It’s not over. Yes, we got a victory in the DOMA case. Mostly. We also – pretty much – got a victory in the Prop 8 case. But there remains much work to be done. For one thing, Same-sex marriage is not the law of the land. Each state can still discriminate. Some [Read More...]

Nancy Pelosi wins.

Lots of very religious people were very unhappy about the gay rights decisions handed down yesterday.  Among them was Michele Bachmann: “Marriage was created by the hand of God. No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy God has instituted,” Bachmann said. Now, I’m a guy who likes to keep things [Read More...]

DOMA and Prop 8 are history. Tony Perkins is a sad panda.

This was the strangest morning.  I woke up this morning no longer interested in marrying my fiancee.  She seemed so perfect, so attractive just yesterday.  But just a few hours ago I rose from my slumber with nothing but desire to marry two dudes and their cocker spaniel instead.  It was then that I knew [Read More...]

Hatemongers tell the Supreme Court they intend to defy any law that allows gay people to marry.

200 anti-gay people have signed a letter to the Supreme Court expressing their intent to defy the law if equality for gays is realized.  The letter reads: As the Supreme Court acknowledged in the 1992 decision of Planned Parenthood v. Casey, its power rests solely upon the legitimacy of its decisions in the eyes of [Read More...]

American Medical Association: gay people should be able to donate blood.

Let’s face it.  Find someone in the United States who is opposed to gay rights and who among us (Christians included) if forced to bet our life savings on guessing their religion wouldn’t say “Christian?”  Sure, no all Christians oppose gay rights.  But of those who oppose gay rights they are almost universally religious.  And [Read More...]
