Judge rules Kentucky must recognize same-sex marriages from other states.

The tide of equality continues to rise! Kentucky must recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states, according to a ruling Wednesday by a federal judge, who struck down part of the state ban that he wrote treated “gay and lesbian persons differently in a way that demeans them.” In 23-page a ruling issued Wednesday, U.S. [Read More...]

Bill that would allow Kansas businesses to discriminate against gay couples passes the House.

Remember that bill in Kansas that would allow businesses to discriminate against gay couples as long as they did it for religious reasons?  It passed the House. The House’s 72-49 vote Wednesday sends the measure to the Senate. Supporters describe it as a religious freedom measure. Opponents contend it will encourage discrimination against gays and [Read More...]

Another case of prayer saving the day (conveniently in the company of doctors and technology, of course).

On September 12th of last year, most Americans weren’t in church.  God didn’t send a bat infected with rabies to bite any of those people.  However, on that day 15 year-old Jenna Giese, who was in church with her family praising god, was bitten by a rabies-infected bat while omnipresent god supposedly watched on.  God [Read More...]

Republican report concludes Benghazi outcome could not have been changed.

For well over a year the GOP has been shouting Benghazi at every opportunity in an attempt to sling mud at President Obama.  While there is plenty of legitimate mud to be slung, a Republican report has confirmed that this isn’t that type of mud: In a new report released on Tuesday, the House Armed [Read More...]

Elementary school refuses to remove cross.

Apparently Kansas has been reading of all the irresponsible behavior by believers in power in Arkansas, Missouri, and Alabama lately and decided they want a piece of the pie.  Here’s an elementary school in Spearville, Kansas, Kansas being a state that has already cut massively from education funding the last few years under GOP governor [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: panda wants his ball.

This panda cub is not ready to relinquish his ball. And here’s a bonus: a dawg smiling for the camera! [Read more...]

Matt Dillahunty annihilates grandstanding wanna be Christian debater.

Sye Ten Bruggencate is one of Eric Hovind’s flunkies who has been trolling Matt Dillahunty wanting a debate.  Sye essentially has leeched onto the presuppositionist argument and keeps repeating it over and over again and thinks this makes him a star (apparently Eric Hovind thinks the same, but that’s a reeeeeeeally low bar). Matt Dillahunty [Read More...]

Man who ran the virtual deaf church comes out as atheist.

Justin Vollmar has been running a very successful online church for the deaf.  Recently, in this youtube video, he renounced his faith to his followers. Signed Vollmar: Vollmar explained his decision in a blunt and blasphemous YouTube video Friday during which he renounced Christian teachings of the existence of the Holy Spirit, Jesus is the Son [Read More...]

The things that Christian Mingle finds offensive…

Rich Wisken made the best Christian Mingle profile of all time: Hi ladies (definitely not men) My name’s Rich, and I’m just a typical old school Christian dude. By old school, I mean Old Testament. Give me the wrath of God over the grace of God any day. Soft New Testament rubbish? Ain’t nobody got [Read More...]

Did priest drown performing ritual in raging waters, or was he abducted by mermaids?

That’s the question, isn’t it?  His family and congregation think they have the answer: The prophet, Simbarashe Kamupondera, 31, of Nyeredzi Nhatu apostolic sect, met his fate around midday as he was attending to a congregant at the Ruwa River banks when he was swept away by a strong current. However, the family believes Simbarashe [Read More...]

Alabama legislator introduces bill that would require 15 minutes of prayer each school day.

So, Alabama isn’t exactly great when it comes to education.  Yes, the GOP is all about the fetus when it’s in the womb, but after that they’ll begrudgingly help the kid as much as they’re made to.  For instance, Alabama ranks 46th in the nation (probably 47th, since Oregon wasn’t ranked) in teacher quality.  Since [Read More...]

Judge Roy Moore: if gays can marry, then we have no Constitution.

Because in Alabama you don’t need to make sensible statements about law in order to get elected judge.  The other day Moore had this to say: “It’s a travesty,” Judge Roy Moore told WND on Monday about the move toward judiciary-imposed same-sex “marriages.” “The courts are exercising wrongful authority over this country.” He said it [Read More...]

Colbert on the difference between angels and balrogs.

This made me laugh. But then Colbert remains a Catholic (a liberal Catholic, but a Catholic none the less).  He obviously understands how silly angels are, so I just do not understand the allegiance to the book and the faith that insists they are real. [Read more...]

Klingenschmitt: gay soldiers have to take combat breaks to change their diapers.

A group of now ex-military chaplains are suing the navy because the navy wouldn’t let them talk about what horrible people gays are.  This sounds reasonable since some of the people laying their lives on the line for America are, y’know, gay.  Also because it isn’t remotely true (but then, if that were an impediment, [Read More...]
