I was reading some commentary about Behe’s “Specific Complexity”. His example is often citing words that form sentences of things that are not just complex, but intentionally complex. [Read more...]
This is a big win for Americans United as well as for children everywhere in Texas: Texas families do not have a religious freedom right to home-school absolutely free of any regulation, a state court of appeals ruled last week. The decision is a setback for Michael and Laura McIntyre, who removed their nine children [Read More...]
Pennsylvania bakery refused to sell wedding cake to lesbian couple. Owner “knows” she’s doing right.
Pennsylvania is a bit weird with regards to the LGBT. It allows same-sex marriage, but has no legal protections in place for LGBT people: Pennsylvania is the only state where it is legal for same-sex couples to marry, but where there are no legal protections whatsoever for sexual orientation and gender identity. Statewide, there is [Read More...]
It’s not that he’s lying, it’s just that he’s confused disparaging untruths with love. On his radio show “Family Talk” (where I can only imagine they talk about how to stop people from forming families) Dobson recently said he’s never said anything disparaging about gay people in his life: This obviously struck me as strange, [Read More...]
Holy crap, my education may not be worthless! If I’m ever cornered by a mountain lion, I’m set. Kyra Kopenstonsky was hiking a trail near Down Valley Park in Placerville, Colo., last week when she caught the attention of a mountain lion. The big cat reportedly stalked her for twenty minutes, often pouncing in front [Read More...]

The FFRF is on a roll lately, and one of their attorneys, Andrew Seidel, just wrote a spectacular piece about how Fox News treats Christian privilege. The FFRF just won another big victory, this time forcing the Navy to remove bibles from guest rooms at naval hotels. Of course, Fox News thinks this is a [Read More...]
Sky Williams is a League of Legends streamer (essentially he plays the game on the internet, people watch him, and he makes money) who also makes youtube videos about the game. I love his videos and have watched them all because he’s funny as hell. He literally makes me laugh out loud. So you can [Read More...]
Michaelyn saw a post by one of her facebook friends that made her almost vomit. She sent it to me and I post it here because it’s not the only one like it I’ve seen, not by a long shot: That is all…smiley face. And other Christians rush in to like it. Who knew that [Read More...]
Matt Staver is the head of Liberty Counsel and dean of the Liberty University School of Law, and he really doesn’t like the idea of marriage equality. In a Radio America interview yesterday he said that Christians and Republicans who stay silent on the subject are just like those who gave their tacit consent in [Read More...]
It’s an OK GO kind of morning. Watching the POTUS statement on Ferguson, MO. Will start posting afterward. [Read more...]
Senator who opposed minimum wage increase opposes cutting Congress’ salary because they don’t get cost of living raises.
Nebraska senator Lee Terry has a wee bit of a history of hypocrisy when it comes to wages: During last fall’s government shutdown, however, Terry said that he would continue to collect his paycheck because he had to pay for a “nice house” and “a kid in college.” He later called those comments “shameful” and agreed to [Read More...]
Look, I don’t believe in karma, but sometimes I’m tempted. Jonathan Saenz is part of the group Texas Values, which you should join if you value discrimination and disseminating loads of bullshit at an obsessive pace. For instance, Saenz has been big on the message that gay people terrorize women and children and pave the [Read More...]
Earlier this year I wrote a bit on how the GOP was creating fake campaign sites for their opponents, but that money donated via these sites would go to the GOP candidates. It was nothing short of lying, but the GOP didn’t seem to care. That trend now continues. The Republicans are making fake news [Read More...]
