With marriage equality coming to my home state of Arkansas newspapers across the state are being inundated with articles and columns about the subject. My hometown paper ran an article about where in the state same sex couples could still tie the knot since stays started getting issued. Of course a true god warrior, Vicki [Read More…]
Gov. Otter’s request for a stay on the Idaho gay marriage ruling is rejected – for the best possible reason!
Gov. Otter had preemptively applied for a stay should Idaho’s gay marriage ban be ruled unconstitutional. Otter said, with a tone of pride usually reserved for members of this “religion of humility” telling others how to comport themselves, that he would appeal this all the way to the Supreme Court! Well, that request has just [Read More…]
One of my favorite tools in debates is the tie-down. Here’s the deal: most of the objections you get in debates (especially about god’s existence, etc.) aren’t legit objections, they’re just rationalizations. For instance, in my debate with Aaron Brummitt (which was over the question “Does God Exist?”) he railed against evolution non-stop. Now, do [Read More…]
Here’s this week’s entry on “bills that will never get passed”: A bipartisan group of Congressmen introduced a bill Monday that would stop costly first-class flights by lawmakers at taxpayer expense and force representatives and senators to fly coach. “As representatives of the American people, we in Congress have a responsibility to wisely use the [Read More…]
This woman has more compassion than the men at the highest ranks of her church. I wish she would renounce the Catholic Church, its policies, and their leaders. Even if she still believes in god, she’s better than the Catholic Church by an incalculable degree. The controversial contract, introduced for all teachers by the Archdiocese [Read More…]
I wrote a while back how even before Mississippi passed its turn-away-the-gays bill how many businesses in the state were putting a sticker in their windows to protest. The stickers read “We don’t discriminate: if you’re buying, we’re selling.” Now the ironically-named American Family Association has put out a list of these businesses saying… This [Read More…]
For a few days, there will be gay marriage in Idaho: A federal judge in Boise has called Idaho’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. Judge Candy Dale sided with four Idaho couples who had filed a lawsuit against the state and the article of the Idaho Constitution that says the state only recognizes marriage as [Read More…]
Dr. Fincke wrote tremendously popular posts on why the arguments in the film God Is Not Dead (and I call it a “film” in the sense that I call what internet trolls have a “life”), well, aren’t very good. Building upon that success, he has created online courses in addition to his others (I’m taking [Read More…]
They just don’t want bloggers to be anonymous, and they want records of everything they say. It’s not so there’s unspoken pressure on them to not criticize the government that is becoming more oppressive by the day…why would you ever think that? Widely known as the “bloggers law,” the new Russian measure specifies that any [Read More…]
You want to see an entire universe of unhinged rambling? Here it is, direct from a member of the House of Representatives: We only want marriage for select individuals and people are calling us intolerant! Waaaaaaaaaaah! So much wrong here. Gohmert starts by saying he loves gay people, yet he wants them to have fewer [Read More…]
Wyoming’s state Board of Education just collectively told the world’s scientists, “Sorry, we know the science better than you do.” The Wyoming Board of Education decided recently that the Next Generation Science Standards need more review after questions were raised about the treatment of man-made global warming. Board President Ron Micheli said the review will [Read More…]
Orly Taitz running for CA Attorney General, would prosecute Obama for lack of birth certificate if elected.
If Orly Taitz were in Texas, I’d cry into my pillow every night for fear she’d be elected to some position of power. But since she’s in California I can just giggle at how flamboyantly ridiculous she is. Every time she squeals that President Obama isn’t a real American I can chuckle and move on. [Read More…]
