By trying to weaken Planned Parenthood you’re going to create the need for more abortions.

David Barton: we can’t let trans people serve in the military! We already allow child molesters!

Man-pretending-to-be-a-historian David Barton is mad: they’re letting anybody serve in the military now including child molesters and people who boink animals and, if we’re not vigilant, soon they’ll even let Transgender people fight for their country!

Secular America

Secular Americans have a lot to celebrate these days:  The numbers of non-believers are increasing.  Church attendance is on the decline.  A recent Gallup poll showed that 58% of Americans would consider voting for a non-believer for public office.  And the SCOTUS decision on same-sex marriage seems to indicate we are moving towards a more [Read More…]
