Obama asks the SCOTUS to strike down Prop 8.

This doesn’t earn him forgiveness for drone strikes, persecution of whistleblowers, or protecting torturers from the Bush years…but it’s a start. Throwing unprecedented political weight into legalizing same-sex marriage, the Obama administration on Thursday urged the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down California’s ban on gay nuptials. In a friend-of-the-court brief, the administration for the [Read More...]

Jimmy Carter: religion is a cause of oppression against women.

Here’s a clip of Jimmy Carter flat out saying that religion is one of the causes of violence against women and of the suppression of equality for them. But he fails to reach the conclusion that religion is bad.  Who is realizing the shortcomings of religion and trying to fix it?  Humans.  If our moral [Read More...]

Open letter to Matt Barber.

The Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber has an open letter to gay teens in the wnd.  Here’s my open letter to Matt Barber. Hi Matt.  I’m a straight guy.  To be perfectly honest, the thought of another guy’s penis repulses me only slightly less than your letter.  And yet, here I am, writing you this letter [Read More...]

Well, that didn’t last long.

Yesterday, I wrote about the governor of Arkansas vetoing an abortion bill.  Well, the celebration was short-lived. The Arkansas House voted 53-28 Wednesday to override Gov. Mike Beebe’s veto of a bill that would outlaw most abortions starting in the 20th week of pregnancy, hours after a state Senate committee approved a package of even [Read More...]

Mark Warden (who was elected by popular vote): Some women like being abused.

A New Hampshire legislator, who is part of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee, was recently “speaking out in support of a bill that would shift the penalty for simple assault from a misdemeanor crime to a violation-level offense in certain cases.”  No, I’m not making that up.  His justification? “Some people could make [Read More...]

Pat Robertson: Demons may live in your sweater.

Explain this vague, scarcely believable scenario, atheist!

One particularly nasty troll out of Kansas City, named Jim Christensen, is banned from this blog.  However, while all other banned people get put into a spam filter that immediately deletes their comments with no fuss, Jim is in moderation…because his comments are so delightfully obsessive and crazy.  I keep his comments to enjoy, as [Read More...]

Arkansas governor vetoes anti-choice bill.

Here’s a happy story out of Arkansas. Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe on Tuesday vetoed a ban on most abortions in Arkansas at 20 weeks into a pregnancy, setting up an override fight with a Republican-controlled Legislature that has been pushing for more restrictions on the procedure. Beebe said he vetoed the ban, which is based [Read More...]

Bloodless lung transplant.

Oh, for Pete’s sake… Last April, after being told that only a transplant could save her from a fatal lung condition, Rebecca S. Tomczak began calling some of the top-ranked hospitals in the country. She started with Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, just hours from her home near Augusta, Ga. Then she tried Duke and [Read More...]

Dave Sirus has a PhD in trolling for good.

Comedian Dave Sirus has a history of trolling the shit out of the WBC.  This is brilliant.  Just brilliant. Yeah, yeah, yeah…mocking religion makes us look like villains.  Bullshit, says I.  Heaping disrespect upon things that are detestable is precisely what we should do.  Treating them with the same respect we reserve for the charitable [Read More...]

Refusing the Department of Homeland Security.

In Arizona, the Department of Homeland Security is setting up random checkpoints (not on the border) for the purpose of making sure people are United States citizens – because what has the fourth amendment ever done for us? I have a voice recorder on my smartphone that gets activated anytime an authority figure, such as [Read More...]

Potential fundraiser?

It was Hemingway who said “Write drunk, edit sober.”  However, most people don’t know that, as cited, this omits the latter half of the quote, which I’m pretty sure was “…if you’re a total wimp.” I posted a facebook status: “I feel like I’m writing pretty well today.  I should drink when I write more [Read More...]
