Bryan Fischer compares Planned Parenthood to Nazi Germany.

I recently created a new list on my twitter feed: The list contains such winners as Erick Erickson, Matt Barber, Bryan Fischer, and more.  It’s painful.  It’s so painful.  It’s like getting an IV of wrong stabbed straight into my eyeballs.  It’s like purposefully launching myself into a misinformation vacuum where facts are not allowed [Read More...]

Steven here… So with everyone’s mind on the birth control ruling from SCOTUS, it is only fitting that we think of as many ways to combat the fallout from such a ruling as we can.

The Thinking Atheist from last night with Matt Dillahunty, Tracie Harris, and myself.

Last night I was on Seth Andrews’ show with a couple luminaries of counter-apologetics: Matt Dillahunty and Tracie Harris from the Atheist Experience.  It was a great time.  If you don’t listen for Matt and Tracie dropping wisdom on how to beat religious arguments, listen because of how aroused Seth Andrews’ voice makes men and [Read More...]

Dale Peterson: the Legend Continues.

Longtime readers of my blog may remember way back in 2010 when I wrote about an Alabama politician whose youtube campaign video had gone viral.  The problem for Dale Peterson was that he thought it was due to massive amounts of support rather than to massive amounts of laughter.  At him. Here’s the video: Now [Read More...]

Good news from the Supreme Court that got lost in the chaos yesterday.

During the Hobby Lobby hullabaloo yesterday there was actually a couple pieces of really good news coming out of the Supreme Court that were obscured by the maelstrom.  First, California’s bill that banned gay-conversion therapy on people under 18, had made it up to the Supreme Court.  Yesterday the Court declined to hear it.

BREAKING: Kentucky’s gay marriage ban struck down.

Do gay people have no heart?  No compassion?  My marriage is two days old and already they’re back at it, trying to tear down my sacred union with the consenting adult I love by wanting the right to form their own sacred union with the consenting adult they love.  How does that even sound like [Read More...]
