Satanists to use Hobby Lobby decision to fight anti-abortion laws.

I love the Church of Satan.  You can quote me on that. Everything the religious right tries to use “religious liberty” to do?  The Church of Satan use the same definition of “religious liberty” to do the opposite.  Funnily, the religious right’s support of “religious liberty” evaporates pretty quick when it’s someone else doing it.

Boehner opposes Obamacare, and is suing Obama for not implementing it sooner.

The Republicans are a strange lot.  In what is obviously a stunt to every political analyst (and every non-political analyst), John Boehner announced a few weeks ago that he was going to sue the President.  He didn’t know what he was going to sue the President for at the time (in his op-ed on CNN [Read More...]

BREAKING: Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals rules Virginia’s gay marriage ban unconstitutional!

About a half hour ago the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Virginia’s same-sex marriage ban violates the Constitution.  How many consecutive federal court victories now?  I lose track it’s so many.  That’s a lot of…*ahem*…activist judges. Anyway, Virginia’s gay marriage ban is history.  No word yet on if a stay will be [Read More...]

AiG seeks tax incentives from the state of Kentucky for Noah’s Ark theme park.

Ok, I know I said I’m taking a personal day, and I am, but there are two more things I have to post (and the next one won’t take but a minute).  But first this. Answers in Genesis want to build a theme park in Kentucky to evangelize to mostly children, since it turns out [Read More...]

BREAKING: Alaska Supreme Court rules same-sex partners entitled to survivor benefits.

Because of the ban on same-sex marriage in Alaska, the surviving partner in same-sex couples were not entitled to survivor benefits.  The state’s Supreme Court just ruled unanimously that this is unconstitutional: The Alaska Supreme Court today ruled unanimously that the same-sex partner of a person killed on the job should have access to the [Read More...]

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is back at, this time they’re suing Jim Fouts, the mayor of Warren, MI, for allowing Christian groups to dispense literature in the City Hall building, but denying atheists who wish to do the same: The American Civil Liberties Union in Michigan and two secular groups are suing the city [Read More...]

No more teacher-led prayers in Indiana school district. #ThanksFFRF

Another epic win for the FFRF.  They are on a roll: The Madison, Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) contacted the Vigo County School Corporation in Terre Haute last May after receiving a complaint from a parent after teacher Jeffrey Burress at Sarah Scott Middle School allegedly led prayer at an awards banquet. “Any prayers led by [Read More...]

IRS settles with the FFRF, agrees to start cracking down on churches that play politics.

This is a huge win for the FFRF! The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has reached a settlement with a prominent atheist organization, agreeing to crack down churches and religious groups for infringements of its prohibition against  ‘electioneering.’ As previously reported, the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF), headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, sued the IRS in 2012, [Read More...]

Bryan Fischer is not happy about Obama’s equality order.

Bryan Fischer took to twitter to express his outrage about Obama’s anti-discrimination order which prohibits companies that work for the federal government from discriminating against gay people.  Apparently if you don’t let Christians discriminate against gay people, you’re oppressing the Christians. Sexual deviancy?  Deviant in regards to what?  How Bryan Fischer thinks people should have [Read More...]

Family Research Council not happy with Obama’s anti-discrimination order.

I’ll just post the FRC’s press release about the executive order Obama signed today forbidding companies who work for the federal government from discriminating against LGBT people.  My thoughts, as I read the release are in red: Today, President Obama issued an Executive Order mandating that all federal contractors and subcontractors grant special treatment to [Read More...]
