Anti-gay bill in Kansas dies in the senate, Kansas taxpayers save a lot of money.

I’ve written a couple of times about this odious bill and am happy to report that, in a surprise move, Republicans in the Kansas Senate broke off from House Republicans and helped kill the measure: A bill that would have allowed individuals to refuse to provide business services to same-sex couples in Kansas because of [Read More…]

Snake-handling preacher, who believed god protects against snake bites, dies of snake bite.

It is not generally good form to report on a person’s death with amusement, and so I do not do so here.  I do, however, report on it with a tremendous sigh at the needlessness of it, with the hope that it can be a lesson for those who still live. Some people in this [Read More…]

Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage is history.

What an appropriate story for Valentine’s Day!  Last night Virginia’s same-sex marriage ban was struck down by Judge Wright Allen: “Our Constitution declares that ‘all men’ are created equal.

Muslims in Syria destroying ancient relics that contradict their faith.

Just in case you thought for a second that religion welcomed facts and integrated them willingly so as to reach the most reasonable conclusion rather than protecting a particular conclusion against all change, I give you this: Islamic fundamentalists in Syria have started to destroy archaeological treasures such as Byzantine mosaics and Greek and Roman statues because their [Read More…]

Happy Valentine’s Day.

I’m hit/miss about this day.  Lots of people, particularly in religious areas, have it drilled into them from birth that happiness in life (and even success in the eyes of their families) means getting married.  Even for those who have escaped that burden, many of us yearn to be loved, perhaps for an inability to [Read More…]

Idaho bill would allow doctors, cops, etc. to refuse service to gay people.

Other states are reiterating, legally, that you can’t discriminate in America.  For followers of the supposedly most loving religion in Idaho, this is just not good news.  Something must be done, and Republican Lynn Luker is just the person to do it.

The House’s 72-49 vote Wednesday sends the measure to the Senate. Supporters describe it as a religious freedom measure. Opponents contend it will encourage discrimination against gays and [Read More…]
