Pastor Rick Scarborough: god would be justified in dropping nuclear bomb on America because we have gay ambassadors.

The people that look to this man for guidance are likely largely skeptical of scientists.  Let that sink in for a minute. Why do religious fundamentalists get a reputation for being dumb?  It’s because if you took the suit off that pastor and put him on a street corner instead of in a multi-million dollar [Read More...]

Fourth consecutive county judge in Florida rules state ban unconstitutional.

Unlike other states, many of Florida’s lawsuits challenging the state’s gay marriage ban were filed in county courts.  That means the decisions in some of those cases are only binding to the county until they’re appealed to the state.  The good news is that the pro-equality crowd has won every suit that’s been ruled on, [Read More...]

Good news and bad news out of Oklahoma

Steven here… You may recall us talking about Scott Esk, Republican candidate for state representative? If you don’t here’s a refresher. Yeah, that guy. The one who thinks that we should straight up murder people for being gay. Anyway, the primary results are in. Esk lost his primary, and he lost so hard. This gives [Read More...]

Peter LaBarbera: god’s wrath coming to Sears.

Sears recently participated in Chicago’s gay pride parade.  According to Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (an organization that spreads opinions that contradict those of every medical and psychological body in the developed world, so the name’s kind of ironic) this is going to move god to take a break from watching murderers, [Read More...]

Put A Jesus On It!

One of the fun things you get to do when you have an English degree is move back in with your parents. For me, that meant moving back to the middle of nowhere. Everyone here is very religious and my town is mostly composed of old conservatives, since everyone under 30 tries to get out. [Read More...]

After two years, GOP-led committee investigating Benghazi finds…nothing.

So much mud the Republicans threw at Obama and none of it stuck.  Then there was Benghazi, a tragedy so, well, tragic, that the GOP couldn’t resist turning it into a political tool for their own gain.  Oh sure it was under the guise of wanting to do honor to the fallen, but pretty much [Read More...]

Another spectacular deconstruction of God’s Not Dead on Patheos.

Can something be dead if it never existed in the first place?  Boom.  Philosophy. Speaking of philosophy, Dan Fincke has penned what I think are the greatest rebuttals to the piece of exceedingly low-hanging fruit that is the movie God’s Not Dead.  It’s literally a movie produced for people who want to be lied to.  [Read More...]

American Family Association: we must push gays back into the closet.

Sometimes I just want to go through a press release by the American Family Association and just write my thoughts to every line.  This is one of those times. It is sometimes difficult for Christians to comprehend the breathtaking speed with which the gay movement has succeeded in America. I can imagine.  They say they [Read More...]
