Arkansas State Senator Jason Rapert: the majority gives the minority their rights by choice.

There are simply no words for this incompetent, contemptible son of a bitch: Good times.  This is the guy who was beside himself that a gay pride parade could be held on a Sunday.  He also wanted to impeach the judge who struck down the state’s gay marriage ban and who wants to install a 10 [Read More...]

The anti-gay tantrum parade: Franklin Graham.

Oh boy, is Franklin Graham mad that the lighthouse put up a rainbow light display on Friday night: “The President had the White House lit up in rainbow colors to celebrate the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage. This is outrageous—a real slap in the face to the millions of Americans who do not support [Read More...]

Roy Moore: just kidding.

Yesterday Roy Moore said that the order from the Alabama Supreme Court prohibited probate judges in Alabama from issuing same-sex marriage licenses. Today’s a different story: “What the order means is that within that 25-day period no (probate judge) has to issue a marriage license to a same sex couple,” Moore said. Moore said that [Read More...]

Judge Roy Moore has ordered…something. Might be to stop issuing same-sex marriage licenses for 25 days. Who knows?

I just got flooded by a bunch of conflicting reports that all started with this (believable) report that Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore has ordered probate judges to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples: Same-sex couples cannot marry in Alabama today. Despite Friday’s historic landmark Supreme Court ruling that found states cannot ban marriage from [Read More...]

Texas attorney general: religious clerks can refuse gay couples.

Ken Paxton, the attorney general in Texas, has decided that Texas needs to get sued a bunch: County clerks in Texas who object to gay marriage can refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples despite last week’s landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling requiring states to allow same-sex marriage, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said [Read More...]

The first same-sex marriage license has been issued in Louisiana.

Oh Bobby Jindal.  He acknowledges that his state is bound by the SCOTUS ruling on same-sex marriage, but he says that because the SCOTUS didn’t give a time table that he won’t commit to when his state will start enforcing the ruling.  Apparently Louisiana isn’t as sharp as other states, including Arkansas and Oklahoma for [Read More...]

The anti-gay tantrum parade: Peter LaBarbera round 2.

The first round with LaBarbera was amusing, but he hasn’t slowed down since.  He’s earned another round on the blog: BREAKING: #SCOTUS rules “gays” can now procreate by themselves. Oh they can’t do tht, can they? B/c Nature Discriminates Agnst Homosexuality — Peter LaBarbera (@PeterLaBarbera) June 26, 2015 If marriage were about procreation we’d pass [Read More...]

The anti-gay tantrum parade: Matt Barber.

Matt Barber of the Liberty Counsel, perhaps the dumbest lawyer in America, is not happy: It makes a mockery of the institution of marriage, something of which God alone has the authority to design & define — Matt Barber (@jmattbarber) June 27, 2015 I don’t know, as a nation and as a people we’ve [Read More...]

Christians are now exiled from society

Rod Dreher has a post at Time Magazine, where he discusses the post-Christian aftermath of the Supreme Court ruling. He writes at the American Conservative, so you know it’ll be gagful. [Read more...]

Have a look at the White House tonight.

The White House got in on the celebration earlier and, like any good celebration, it carries on into the night. No need for fireworks: we have exploding heads from the religious right for that. The White House is streaming the rainbow lights: I forget, who was it that said, “I have set my rainbow in [Read More...]
