Your morning happiness: sneaky play on Twitch.

Video games are coming to morning happiness.  I regret nothing! Last night I was playing a game on Twitch, a character who can periodically become invisible.  Toward the end of the game we were running away from the enemy team and I suspected the other team’s front line was too fixated on starting a fight [Read More...]

David Barton: opposition to women’s suffrage was based on biblical principles and was for the good of society.

Sometimes you don’t even have to analyze what they say…sometimes you just have to repeat it, drop the mic, walk away, and hope people have the moral fiber to be as disgusted as you are. On the Thursday broadcast of Wallbuilders Live, David Barton explained that biblical principles — and not sexism — were behind not [Read More...]

TN state senator compares the Affordable Care Act to the Holocaust.

I’ve grown cynical in my time as a blogger.  A lot of times when I see a headline like “Tennessee State Senator Compares Obamacare To The Holocaust” I’ll read the article and realize the comparison was tenuous at best.  That is honestly what I expected when I saw that headline. Then I read the article. [Read More...]

In the wake of the Greece ruling, FFRF introduces the “Nothing Fails Like Prayer” award.

There is a stealth movement to make divorce more difficult.

I was unaware of this, but it doesn’t surprise me: In cooperation with the Family Research Council and the National Organization for Marriage, socially conservative politicians have been quietly trying to make it harder for couples to get divorced. In recent years, lawmakers in more than a dozen states have introduced bills imposing longer waiting [Read More...]

Catholic Church is really (not) getting after child rapists.

I saw this article this morning and wasn’t surprised: Police on Sunday arrested Catholic priest of Thrissur Archdiocese, Fr Raju Kokkan, accused of raping a minor girl. Fr Kokkan was arrested from Nagarcovil in Tamil Nadu where he was hiding since Thursday after police issued a look-out notice against him. The priest had allegedly lured [Read More...]

After book is banned to satisfy religious parents, student hands out copies for free.

A school in Idaho caved to religious parents who found a sentence in the book which challenged the notion that masturbation is a sin offensive. Mountain View High school had originally included “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian,” by Sherman Alexie as part of their required reading list, but some parents protested and [Read More...]

Conservatives love guns and hating Obamacare, how about an ad combining both?

This should have conservatives wanking themselves (and begging Jesus for forgiveness before doing it again).  It’s a candidate who, in her ad, loads up a gun and promises to “unload” on Obamacare. Jesus.  She couldn’t run an ad that said “I have some intellectual misgivings with the ACA and I’m going to win in fair, [Read More...]

SCOTUS rules in favor of town council prayers, but could’ve been worse.

The SCOTUS just ruled in favor of the town of Greece, wrongly in my view.  The Greece city council was opening sessions with prayer, virtually all of which was specifically Christian prayer.  They were sued, it made its way to the Supreme Court, and the SCOTUS just ruled.  Before I get to why it’s not [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: It’s ok to be gay!

I came across this video last night based around a character in League of Legends named Taric, who is so completely and obviously gay.  Now for those of you who don’t play video games, bear with me.  It wasn’t the video that made me smile, it was the song to which it was set by [Read More...]

Judge Roy Moore: “first amendment only protects Christians.”

Today is a day entirely of wedding planning, so I don’t have time to beat this with a metaphorical iron hammer…but Jesus H. Christ I want to. Speaking at the Pastor for Life Luncheon, which was sponsored by Pro-Life Mississippi, Chief Justice Roy Moore of the Alabama Supreme Court declared that the First Amendment only [Read More...]

Head of Satanist Church knows how to deal with people threatening their monument.

I’m really starting to like Lucien Greaves. Back story: Oklahoma decided to put a 10 commandments monument on the Statehouse lawn.  Seeing that the door was open for religious monuments, and noting how the leaders of Oklahoma would never give precedence to one religion over another (just kidding), the Satanist Church applied to put a [Read More...]

Congresswoman Janice Hahn storms out of National Day of Prayer breakfast in protest.

Hemant has some great statements from various political leaders in support of National Day of Reason, but one person on Capitol Hill took it a step further when James Dobson decided to monopolize the prayer breakfast for his particular religion.  I know, who could’ve seen that one coming? “Before [Obama] was elected, he made it [Read More...]
