By: Friday October 19, 2012 3:00 pm

The tide has turned and hate and junk science purveyors like Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association need to be prepared to be tossed off the air (CNN’s Carol Costello had enough of his foolishness the other day).

RNC delegates visit Disney’s EPCOT and are appalled at presence of ‘Mexican’ at American Pavilion

By: Sunday September 2, 2012 10:26 pm

It’s a Small World, After All…apparently not small and white enough for these GOP delegates. They like that small tent, even when at Disney World. During a trip to Epcot at Disneyworld, Pennsylvania delegate Mark Harris and his wife were shocked and offended to find a Mexican employee working at the amusement park’s American pavilion, [...]

There Goes The Neighborhood, Gay Version

By: Sunday August 26, 2012 8:30 pm

Times change, but the tenets of bigotry don’t. Racist bigots used to say “there goes the neighborhood” to express their view that black families tainted the white neighborhoods they moved into, decreasing their desirability for white inhabitants. Today, heterosupramecist bigots express the same sentiment: “I just think that that word ‘marriage’ is ours. Two-gender couples, [...]

Round up of a few positively off-the-rails, desperate, anti-gay fundie declarations of doom

By: Wednesday August 8, 2012 4:00 pm

It’s a bumper crop of crazee out there, as nightmares related to a cultural gay apocalypse that is apparently around the corner are being experienced by the purveyors of professional anti-LGBT hate.

Louisiana school voucher program allows kids to learn creationist non-science and pro-slavery revisionism

By: Wednesday August 8, 2012 1:00 pm

You can thank Republican Veep prospect, Governor Bobby “the exorcist” Jindal for this development. Millions of tax dollars under his voucher program will go to “save” the low-wealth and middle class kids from Louisiana’s horrible public schools to private schools run by fundies teaching from textbooks rife with bible-based bullsh*ttery. (Mother Jones): While the governor’s [...]

Will we ever step up to cleanse our society of bigotry-fueled violence? Can we?

By: Monday August 6, 2012 10:52 am

Emily Schmall at has an interesting piece on the anti-gay fast food giant Chick-Fil-A.

And this was long [...]

For the homophobic win: same-sex scandal-ridden Florida Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll

By: Sunday July 15, 2012 6:36 pm

We’ve seen epic denials from pols that are hall-of-fame worthy when they are caught in a sex scandal with someone of the same sex — think Larry “ I never have been gay“ Craig , or Bob “black gay panic” Allen come to mind — but we’ve got a real winner today. Not only do we have a rare [...]
