Can the future get here sooner so it’s clear that every civilized person despises bigots of all stripes, including the anti-gay crowd? In Alabama some probate judges are using a hella old loophole to deny marriage licenses to everybody, just to get at the gay people: In 1961, as Alabama’s all-white Legislature tried to preserve [Read More...]
Oh man, the right wing is going to be so happy to hear this. I’ve finally found one of these rogue justices they’re always complaining about – y’know, the ones who defy the Constitution and just attempt to get things their way regardless of what precedent establishes. His name is Justice Tom Parker of the [Read More...]

Pope lends support to those like Kim Davis saying they have a human right to refuse to issue same-sex marriage licenses.
My position on Pope Fluffy, as Paul Fidalgo calls Francis, is echoed by Friday Night Heretics Club, which likens the love of Francis ascending to the bare minimum of human decency and competency at times (he believes in evolution and climate change, holy shit call CNN) to this joke by Chris Rock: That is what [Read More...]
