Gay marriage ban in Idaho struck down. Governor Otter might do us another favor.

For a few days, there will be gay marriage in Idaho: A federal judge in Boise has called Idaho’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. Judge Candy Dale sided with four Idaho couples who had filed a lawsuit against the state and the article of the Idaho Constitution that says the state only recognizes marriage as [Read More...]

Dan Fincke creates class on “God Is Not Dead”, challenges Christians to take it.

Dr. Fincke wrote tremendously popular posts on why the arguments in the film God Is Not Dead (and I call it a “film” in the sense that I call what internet trolls have a “life”), well, aren’t very good.  Building upon that success, he has created online courses in addition to his others (I’m taking [Read More...]

Russia passes anti-blogger law.

They just don’t want bloggers to be anonymous, and they want records of everything they say.  It’s not so there’s unspoken pressure on them to not criticize the government that is becoming more oppressive by the day…why would you ever think that? Widely known as the “bloggers law,” the new Russian measure specifies that any [Read More...]

Louie Gohmert compares LGBT equality advocates to Nazis.

You want to see an entire universe of unhinged rambling?  Here it is, direct from a member of the House of Representatives: We only want marriage for select individuals and people are calling us intolerant!  Waaaaaaaaaaah! So much wrong here.  Gohmert starts by saying he loves gay people, yet he wants them to have fewer [Read More...]

Wyoming is the first state to reject next gen science standards. Why? Global warming.

Wyoming’s state Board of Education just collectively told the world’s scientists, “Sorry, we know the science better than you do.” The Wyoming Board of Education decided recently that the Next Generation Science Standards need more review after questions were raised about the treatment of man-made global warming. Board President Ron Micheli said the review will [Read More...]

Orly Taitz running for CA Attorney General, would prosecute Obama for lack of birth certificate if elected.

If Orly Taitz were in Texas, I’d cry into my pillow every night for fear she’d be elected to some position of power.  But since she’s in California I can just giggle at how flamboyantly ridiculous she is.  Every time she squeals that President Obama isn’t a real American I can chuckle and move on. [Read More...]

Huckabee also calls for impeachment of judge who struck down Arkansas gay marriage ban.

Fucker shouldn’t be allowed to run for garbageman because he doesn’t understand how constitutional protections work: Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says lawmakers in his home state should impeach a judge who struck down the state’s gay marriage ban, saying the judge ignored the will of voters. In a blog post on his political action committee website, Huckabee on Sunday criticized [Read More...]

Words of wisdom.

They say that brevity is the soul of wit, and this single sentence says so much: And even if you do take the bible literally when it hurts people, you’re a bad person if you obey.  No good person accepts a wicked master.  If someone gives a cruel command that you follow, you are just [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: a tiger, a lion, and a bear.

There will be a LOT of posts today.  Lots of stuff going on.  So take a deep breath and drink in this pile of adorable: it’s a tiger, a lion, and a bear who were rescued from a captured drug dealer and were raised together. And for less feral fare, here’s a husky who definitely [Read More...]

Christians don’t get to ban books.

I wrote a piece last month about a brave student who, after Christian parents convinced his school to ban an award-winning book because it had a line about masturbation, began distributing free copies of the book. Shortly thereafter I got wind of another book banning at a school district in Tennessee because the book The Curious [Read More...]

Michael Sam’s jersey is the second highest-selling rookie jersey.

I cannot type the word “Michael” because I’m engaged to a woman named Michaelyn.  Even when typing that last sentence I initially typed “Michaely” before back-spacing. Anyway, Michael (not Michaely) Sam’s jersey is the second highest-selling jersey among draftees at the moment: Outsports reported jerseys for Sam, who was the draft’s 249th pick, are currently second in [Read More...]

Cracked author gives a look into the life of a Mormon missionary.

This article actually made me sympathize with some of the things Mormon missionaries must go through.  I’ve known a few missionaries who no longer believed but who went on their mission anyway because it was expected of them by their family. The first thing I didn’t know: you pay to be a missionary! You can’t [Read More...]

Some GOP lawmakers in Arkansas want to impeach Judge who struck down the gay marriage ban.

This is silly, but not wholly unexpected: At least one member of the Arkansas House of Representatives has confirmed that he is pursuing impeachment against Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza following his ruling Friday (May 9) that overturned the state’s ban on gay marriage. But the speaker of the Arkansas House has vowed to block any [Read More...]

I’m glad Michael Sam got drafted, but now he needs to succeed as a football player.

Michael Sam is the fist openly gay football player in division 1 history, and the first openly gay player to be drafted into the NFL.  Before we get into any of my thoughts on this, I want to show you something absolutely beautiful.  Here is Sam’s reaction after he got the call from the Rams [Read More...]
