Hey gang.  Michaelyn’s stomach is still hitting her with stabbing pain whenever she stands up.  Might go to a doctor if it keeps up.  :(  Anyway, she’s staying home.  I’m gonna post some real quick stuff and go back to her. I wouldn’t keep reading this particular post if you’re weak of stomach.  A father [Read More...]

Kentucky churches withhold $7 million in promised donations to children’s home to coerce anti-gay policies.

If there’s one thing Jesus abides less than homeless children, it’s children in a home with two loving parents feeding them, clothing them, taking them to school, all while being the same gender. Sunrise Children’s Services is working to recover from a massive budget shortfall after Kentucky churches withheld $7 million because the children’s home [Read More...]

Liberal Oregon allows students to skip school to go to church.

I saw this over on Hemant’s blog and I couldn’t believe it.  There is a law in Oregon that allows students, with parental permission, to skip out during school hours up to two hours each week (five hours for high school students) to receive “instruction in religion.” To Banks Elementary School “instruction” is taken to [Read More...]

Rust Cohle on McConaughey’s Oscar speech.

You’ve probably heard about Matthew McConaughey’s Oscar speech by now.  I finally watched it to see what all the chatter was about.  Seems McConaughey’s biggest sin was just displaying normal Christian arrogance – he thanks god for providing him with opportunities, implying how great god is, when that same god apparently created the opportunity for [Read More...]

Cancer patient in GOP anti-Obamacare commercial would save money on the ACA.

Meet Julie Boonstra: That sounds terrible!  Is the Affordable Care Act really killing this woman?  She did, after all, say that this is serious – not a game. But it does sound a bit fishy.  As one columnist opined: It’s hard to figure out how regulations preventing insurers from charging higher rates to people with [Read More...]

Michele Bachmann is tired of gay people bullying everybody.

Being fed up with gay people bullying everybody makes about as much sense as lamenting how Sarah Palin is just so much smarter than everybody else.  All the same, Bachmann is fed up with gay people not just rolling over when their rights are contested. The Minnesota congresswoman told talk show host Lars Larson in an [Read More...]

Video of the Brummit vs. Eberhard debate.

Here’s a video of the debate.  If you guys want, I’ll go through and rebut all of Brummit’s stuff in the Q&A. You know, I thought this debate went pretty well for me.  Any time your opponent is in his second rebuttal round saying he’s going to get around to providing evidence for his position [Read More...]

Your morning happiness: first kiss.

Michaelyn forwarded this to me last night and it intrigued me.  A filmmaker rounded up 20 strangers, paired them up, and had them kiss each other for the first time.  I didn’t think I’d be into it that much, but when I watched it I found myself intrigued by the awkwardness, but then the magic [Read More...]

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s office helped write the LGBT discrimination bill she vetoed.

Oh politics…you are a fickle beast.  It turns out that the bill Gov. Brewer vetoed for being “too broadly worded” had wording contributed by her office. Before it attracted any national attention, advisers to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) offered guidance on the anti-gay legislation that she eventually vetoed at the end of February — [Read More...]

Dave Silverman is not anti-choice.

And here we go again. So David Silverman is getting a lot of grief over this statement at CPAC:  “I will admit there is a secular argument against abortion. You can’t deny that it’s there, and it’s maybe not as clean cut as school prayer, right to die, and gay marriage.” He’s right, you can’t [Read More...]
