In the past week NYC has been rocked by a few incidents of hideous violent attacks against gays and transgender residents. There have been shootings assaults outside gay bars and a brutal killing of Mark Carson in another shooting in the Village. Michelangelo Signorile, who also points out the unending violence against transgender residents that [...]

The GOP autopsy generates a lot of walking (brain) dead. This week it’s Ben Carson and Don Young

By: Saturday March 30, 2013 12:53 am

They just cannot help themselves, whether it’s a rising star in GOP circles, or a long-time, grizzled elected Senator. I’m enjoying the complete lack of any pretense as bigotry continues to spill from the lips of these folks, who either cannot digest or have to desire to digest the message that the GOP “autopsy” conducted [...]

NC: Rowan County Officials Erupt Over ACLU Lawsuit Challenging Its Official Public Prayers

By: Wednesday March 13, 2013 12:59 pm

Fundie Rowan County elected officials are out of control. (Raw Story): The group’s [ACLU] letter sparked a series of angry commentaries by commissioners, including an email by Commissioner Jim Sides who said he would “volunteer to be the first to go to jail for” the cause of official public prayer at government meetings. Subsequent meetings featured [...]

MN Homophobe Parades Lack of Basic Science Ed with Laughable Testimony Against Marriage Equality

By: Wednesday March 13, 2013 7:21 am

As one of my Facebook commenters said, “OMFg!! My 8 year old comes home with more accurate sh*t from the playground than this!” And to think, this guy, Mike Frey, a “concerned father and husband,” shared his mind-blowing ignorance with the world as he shared his deep thoughts about why gays and lesbians getting married [...]

NC: Bigoted restaurant owner slips condemning letter to lesbian couple — after they’ve dined and paid

By: Friday January 11, 2013 11:01 am

I love the new homophobia. In the vein of Chik-Fil-a, bigoted establishments welcome gay dollars, but want to condemn at the same time. In New Bern, NC on December 4, Ariel and Shawnee McPhail walked into The Stingray Café, sat down and had their meal, and had this handed to them by the restaurant’s owner, [...]

Yeah, Team Obama is pulling another Rick Warren. And? (updated)

By: Thursday January 10, 2013 3:12 am

It’s like Groundhog Day. The alarm goes off and it’s a replay of the day past. So here we are again, another Obama inauguration, another controversy over an anti-gay pastor participating in the ceremony. This time around it’s the selection of evangelical pastor Louie Giglio to deliver the benediction at the event. Joan Walsh @ [...]

How They See Us: Unmasking the Religious Right War on Gay America

By: Tuesday January 8, 2013 8:01 am

Today, I am publishing what I hope to be a definitive work analyzing religious right propaganda. How They See Us: Unmasking the Religious Right War on Gay America pushes a simple premise – the claim by organizations like the Family Research Council, the National Organization for Marriage, Focus on the Family, etc. that they operate [...]

America the Beautiful: ‘Riled Up’ by Fox News, bum rushing gun stores, and lack of male aggression and strategic thinking

By: Saturday December 22, 2012 7:00 am

Stories like this make me sad and curious — how many people in the U.S. are as intellectually challenged as this man? Has the nation been so dumbed down that it’s not difficult to come across countless stories of jack@ssery like this just casually surfing the news? Randolph Linn, Indiana Man, Drank 45 Beers, Got ‘Riled [...]

Bryan Fischer’s cornucopia of hate: anti-gay exorcisms work, no one is born gay, and gay parents=bad

By: Monday November 19, 2012 3:29 pm

God almighty —  these cretins just keep spewing non-factual garbage because they’ve got nothing left to bring in the dollars to fund their hate-filled “lifestyle.” The latest from David Pakman, who just interviewed the scum-sucking, professional gay-hating, transphobic, womb-controlling Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association.  I’m not even trying to charitable in my assessment of [...]

CNN anchor Carol Costello on Bryan Fischer’s rants: ‘I’m a proud, card-carrying member of the gay gestapo’

By: Monday October 22, 2012 2:57 pm

I’m glad that she’s making fun of Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association. Mocking is all that he and his ilk deserve. He has been having a cow ever since she booted him off of the air for his insane anti-gay, fact-free offensive blathering. Think Progress: Costello abruptly ended the interview after Fischer started [...]
