Tony Perkins not happy about SCOTUS denying review to same-sex marriage cases.

Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council (there they are again, associating the word “family” with stopping families from forming), is also sad about the SCOTUS declining review of same-sex marriage cases.  They just issues a press release with is just as inane as you’d expect: Unfortunately, by failing to take up these marriage [Read More…]

A double standard that will go unnoticed by everyone upset about today’s marriage happenings.

If the SCOTUS had ruled to invalidate same-sex marriage, you’d have heard that god answered their prayers. Pat Robertson would’ve taken to the air as quickly as possible along with Glenn Beck, Brian Brown, and more to state, with unwavering certainty, that god (who supposedly doesn’t interfere with free will) dipped his hand into American [Read More…]

In which I try to comfort Peter LaBarbera.

It’s strange.  In the wake of an avalanche of marriage equality cases having their stays lifted, none of the usual merry band of people determined to make the word “family” synonymous with discrimination have made a peep.  Nothing from Bryan Fischer, Matt Barber, etc. But Peter LaBarbera, leader of American for Truth About Homosexuality (the [Read More…]

Hey guys.  This post originally went up on the Friendly Atheist (where it can be read in full, and should be).  It was a response to Reza Aslan’s recent apologetics with regard to Islam that are making the rounds (even to some religion-friendly blogs on the atheist channel here at Patheos): I shared it on social [Read More…]
