Republican governor of North Carolina will veto anti-gay bill, cites adherence to the Constitution.

I rag on the Republicans because, well, they do a lot of stupid things.  But I must give credit where it’s due.  First, though, I have to rag on North Carolina Republicans for this bullshit: Back in February when the North Carolina state Senate passed an anti-gay marriage bill to “protect” magistrates from having to [Read More…]

Vatican official says successful gay marriage vote in Ireland is a “defeat for humanity.”

Last week Ireland voted to legalize gay marriage (by something like 62% of the votes cast).  Sadly, I was traveling and dealing with perishing relatives, so I didn’t blog it.  But I can sure blog the Vatican’s reaction: A senior Vatican official has denounced the referendum result in Ireland as a “defeat for humanity” after [Read More…]

Texas Republican would kill his own bill before letting it go through with anti-gay attachments.

The title of the Houston Chronicle’s article reads, “Anti-same-sex marriage bill resurrected as amendment to county measure.”  The crux of the story is that a Democratic state senator in Texas, Eddie Lucio, attached a rider to an uncontroversial bill essentially saying Texas could ignore a SCOTUS ruling in favor of marriage equality.  The rider also [Read More…]

Huckabee: we must follow Supreme Being, not Supreme Court, on gay marriage.

These people just cannot seem to get it: your religion is not above the law.  Being religious doesn’t make you above the law whether you’re a racist or Josh Duggar.  Sometimes that’s what winds up happening (see Josh Duggar), but that’s a glitch, not the program. This notion that Christians are above our nation is [Read More…]

If you think the leader of the Boy Scouts of America wants to lift the anti-gay ban to stop discrimination, you’re wrong.

I’m seeing a lot of people reacting positively to Robert M. Gates saying he wanted to lift the ban on gay scout leaders in the BSA, but I’m not sure they’ve read exactly what he said: Speaking at the Boy Scouts’ annual national meeting in Atlanta, Mr. Gates said cascading events — including potential employment [Read More…]

Reverend thinks gayness is an abomination (when not cruising for dudes on Grindr).

Reverend Matthew Makala thinks homosexuality is a sin akin to lying, alcohol abuse, etc. In November 2014, a fellow Midland man of God, Pastor Dan Dickerson, wrote an op-ed titled A Stand For The Truth which reads in part: “A sexual attraction to the same sex is a sinful temptation to be resisted and overcome by God’s [Read More…]

Jeb Bush: Tolerance requires us to permit intolerance.

Jeb Bush did an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network this weekend and talked about what we needed in order to have a tolerant country.  Amazingly (not really) it’s to allow intolerance if it’s done for religious reasons. Speaking with host David Brody, the former Florida governor said, “It’s not just that people of faith [Read More…]

Rios: Gayness “a factor” in the Amtrak crash.

Sandy Rios heard that the engineer on the train was a gay rights supporter (and might have been gay himself).  That was all she needed to hear: “Now I am not saying, I am not inferring to those of you that are gay rights activists and like to monitor this show, I’m not inferring that [Read More…]

Limbaugh: Christians on the decline because they’re being bullied by gay people.

Pew recently released data confirming that Christianity is on a massive decline while the religiously unaffiliated are in the ascent at about the same clip, resulting in there being more religiously unaffiliated Americans than Catholics.  Rush Limbaugh believes he has the explanation for this.  It’s not that religions tend to have arbitrary, un-fun rules.  No. [Read More…]
