Another North Carolina magistrate resigns rather than serve the public equally.

Another North Carolina judge has realized a problem: his religious beliefs insist he not do his job properly, but he likes his job.  Give the choice between adequately filling his role as a government employee and abiding by his religion, he made the best choice for himself: he resigned his position as judge. Swain County [Read More…]

Possible solution to “play store” problem.

Just saw this from one of the tech people at Patheos: For anyone getting (or having) complaints about the ios hack that reroutes people from Patheos to the App store or deadend pages, tell them to update to the latest version of the Facebook Mobile app. It seems to have patched the hole that allowed [Read More…]

Republican state senator in NC introduces bill that would allow magistrates to refuse gay couples.

In North Carolina some magistrates are resigning rather than issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.  Of course, some are trying to paint them as victims instead of people incapable of doing a simple job.

Alaska “fighting” gay marriage with legal and political masturbation.

Gov. Sean Parnell has filed an en banc marriage ruling with the 9th Circuit.  For those who don’t know, an en banc request is a request for a case to be heard by all the judges on a court, not just the panel that made the ruling. Compelled by Latta v. Otter, (9th Cir. Oct. 7, [Read More…]

Republican with…unique fetish standing firm against the deviant homosexual agenda.

Jordan Haskins is a Republican running for the state House and boy, is he fed up with the homosexual agenda. “If the state wants to trample religious freedom, we go somewhere else where our values are welcome,” Haskins posted Oct. 8. “Michigan loses tax money, economic performance, jobs, etc. if they choose to be entrenched [Read More…]

Sarah Palin pocketing most of the money from her super PAC.

It turns out that Sarah Palin’s super PAC is a giant scam: Out of $1.4 million the PAC had available in the third quarter — $978,000 sitting in the bank at the beginning of the July 1-Sept. 30 period, plus another more than $433,000 raised during that time — SarahPAC managed to donate just $45,000 [Read More…]

Why the district ruling in Puerto Rico, upholding their gay marriage ban, made absolutely no sense.

Judge Juan Pérez-Giménez, a district court judge in Puerto Rico, has ruled that Puerto Rico’s gay marriage ban is constitutional.  As you might expect, his ruling is full of bizarre lines of reasoning.  Forgive me if I just jump right in.  In his ruling  Pérez-Giménez said: The plaintiffs have brought this challenge alleging a violation [Read More…]

Catch the FFRF’s Andrew Seidel on Dogma Debate TONIGHT at 7pm EST!

One of my favorite people in the movement is Andrew Seidel at the Freedom From Religion Foundation.  He’s brilliant, hard-working, kind, and extremely personable.  Seriously, if this guy isn’t on your radar, fix that (especially if you run an organization that likes to bring in public speakers).  Need proof?  Here’s a talk he gave at [Read More…]

Pat Robertson: Gay rights advocates are “Terrorists, radicals, and extremists.”

Ol’ Pat is at it again: Except this time he’s using arguments a lot of Christians are using right now.  So let’s hit up some of them. It’s one thing to want to persuade somebody to believe like you do, that’s what Christianity is about, to bring the Gospel message and say this is good [Read More…]

About those annoying ads and trouble with iphones accessing the blog.

Pure copy/paste from Hemant: I know you’re all annoyed by the autoplay video ads on this site… and if you’re reading this on an iPhone, you’ve probably been redirected to the App store by now. A few comments about that: It annoys the hell out of me, too. It’s frustrating when even I can’t read [Read More…]

They’ve been shown the Idaho ministers story is a lie, but that doesn’t seem to deter them.

This morning Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association (whose primary goal seems to be stopping loving families from forming) took to twitter to continue spreading this lie (which has been picked up and spread even by blogs here at Patheos): This is simply not true.  The city even responded to these allegations yesterday: On [Read More…]
