Josh Duggar recently told the Christian News Service that he’s a victim of discrimination at the hands of people who presently have fewer rights than he: Reality television star Josh Duggar believes Christians should enjoy a special right to discriminate against LGBT people or be made victims of discrimination themselves. The star of TLC’s “19 [Read More...]
Josh Duggar says it’s Christians opposing same-sex marriage who are the real victims of discrimination.
Anti-gay side tells the SCOTUS we can’t alter the definition of marriage. We can, we should, and Clarence Thomas should know it.
Today the Supreme Court heard oral arguments for its first same-sex marriage case. Justice Kennedy, widely believed to be the swing vote on this case, expressed reluctance to alter a definition that has been with us through millenia: Justice Anthony M. Kennedy said he was concerned about changing a conception of marriage that has persisted for [Read More...]
A bakery, Sweet Cakes By Melissa, famously refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple in Oregon, where LGBT are protected as part of the state’s discrimination laws.

Earlier my brother sent me a screenshot comparing the online viewership of the march to a kid playing video games (an image he dubbed March4Fail): NOM wants people to send them their pictures of the rally. My brother happily complied: Sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy the little things in life. [Read more...]
Americans for Truth (an organization which dedicates almost all its effort to lying about LGBT people) made it to the march! I’m glad they’re already assuming the Supreme Court is going to rule against them. Also, this is one of the many lies you’ll hear out of Americans for…ahem…Truth. I must say though, the march [Read More...]
Zack Ford from Think Progress is at the March For Marriage (disclaimer: that title’s a bit of a misnomer, the march is for some marriages, but against others – and it focuses on the ones it’s against) and he’s tweeting some absolute gold. Yes, because if we let gay people marry then straight people will [Read More...]
I’m enjoying watching NOM’s March For Marriage fail via all the lovelies on my twitter feed. To give you an example of how much this is failing, here’s almost 9,000 people watching a kid play video games while less than 500 watch the rally that’s supposed to save our nation from utter destruction: I don’t [Read More...]
This tweet (retweeted by Erick Erickson, who is in my special twitter feed) exists and it’s not a joke: I want to know what high school this guy went to where he learned that all the Nazis really wanted was to be able to marry the consenting adult of their choice and for all Germans [Read More...]
“Stand for Marriage Sunday” is coming up. It’s essentially a day when hyper conservative churches all say the same thing about LGBT people they say all year, just with emphasis, I guess. Anyway, for the event Rick Santorum’s film company is making a video for the day in which Santorum argues that the SCOTUS can’t [Read More...]
FAITH & GAY RIGHTS: Mike Huckabee claims pro equality SCOTUS decision would criminalize Christianity.
Did you know that if the Supreme Court legalizes marriage equality that it will, in essence, criminalize Christianity? Thanks Mike Huckabee for this scoop: “If the courts rule that people have a civil right not only to be a homosexual but a civil right to have a homosexual marriage, then a homosexual couple coming to [Read More...]
