Tom DeLay, one of the undisputed kings of dirty politics, went on Matt Hagee’s show the other day to say America’s greatest failing is a secular government (presumably because this way criminals get punished in life rather than forgiven after death) and that god wrote the Constitution. During an appearance on John Hagee Ministries’ Global [Read More…]
Conservative think tank sends two “real scientists” to tell the pope humans aren’t causing climate change.
The Heartland Institute is a conservative think tank heavily backed by the Koch brothers. As the pope is about to make a bunch of pronouncements about the environment via encyclical letter, the HI is sending two “real scientists” (their words, the scientists aren’t named) to convince the pope that climate change is not driven by [Read More…]
It’s amazing how one’s ambitions change throughout life. In high school I just wanted to be accepted. I wasn’t. The things that appealed to me just weren’t the things that interested my peers. Not only did I feel inadequate around them at all-times personality-wise, I felt hideous and fat by comparison which, to my mind, [Read More…]
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…]
I couldn’t believe this article in The Week: Of course I immediately asked myself the obvious question: is this a joke? Am I being punked by a Poe? Nope. Here’s the first paragraph: We have forgotten just how deep a cultural revolution Christianity wrought. In fact, we forget about it precisely because of how [Read More…]
Just saw the Barna research on the churchless in America (which doesn’t necessarily mean atheist) from 1993-2013 and this paragraph caught my attention: Many of these ideas are initiated, promoted and reinforced by celebrity personalities and media exposure. There has arisen a new stratum of anti-religion celebrity apologists that includes Bill Maher, Sam Harris, Richard [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…]
