We’re at a very strange moment in civil rights history, thanks to SCOTUS

By: Wednesday June 26, 2013 7:32 pm

Thanks to SCOTUS over the last two days: 1) If you’re a same-sex couple and live in CA, you can marry. 2) If you live in NC (or any other state with a “marriage protection amendment”) and were legally married elsewhere (in my case, Canada), your marriage is not recognized in terms of filing joint state [...]

Here’s a milestone – Disney Channel to feature two-mom family on kid series

By: Friday June 21, 2013 1:05 pm

Disney’s already been boycotted (unsuccessfully) by the professional anti-LGBT crowd, so The Mouse House is likely ready for the explosion from the fringe any moment now as the channel plans to feature its first two-mom family on its children’s show Good Luck Charlie. (Via Mombian): TV Guide reports that the episode involves a secondary storyline where the [...]

NC: Teahadist Lawmakers Propose Bill to Institute a “State Religion”

By: Wednesday April 3, 2013 7:08 am

As I’ve said countless times before, the 2010 election saw a tidal wave of Teabaggers roll into our General Assembly in NC, and with the first GOP supermajority since Reconstruction, they’ve been hard at work since day one rolling back progressive progress in the state. In response to an ACLU challenge to prayer before Rowan County [...]

NC’s GOP-led ruin: working hard not to create jobs, but to go after gays, Latinos…and enter wombs, bedrooms

By: Saturday March 30, 2013 12:23 am

It was all too predictable. I wish that I could kick the @sses of the “reasonable but disengaged” NC voters — and there are way too many of them — who were too lazy/apathetic to cast a ballot to avoid the calamity we are witnessing now. That and the wreck of a state Dem party. [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

Tennessee pastor blames Newtown tragedy on schools teaching evolution, ‘how to be a homo’

By: Tuesday December 18, 2012 3:16 pm

What a stunning lack of originality. The crazee has been unleashed by the likes of Mike Huckabee, but you can always count on some no-name bible-beater who wants to break the sanity meter. (Raw Story): Morris insisted that “humanism” in schools taught Lanza that he was God and “he can just go blow away anybody [...]

Bryan Fischer: Jesus taught that it’s your right to lock and load

By: Wednesday December 5, 2012 12:00 pm

WWJD w/a TEC-9? The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer goes for the American Masculine Gun-Toting Jesus interpretation of the Bible this time. This twisted view of Christ’s teachings really brings it home that you can read just about anything in the Good Book, even though it clearly must require heavy mind-altering meds or lack of sanity [...]

Anti-LGBT Whackadoodle debate: Westboro Baptist spawn vs. former Navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt

By: Thursday November 29, 2012 1:53 pm

I don’t know how David Pakman manages to get the deranged wing of the professional anti-gays to come onto his show, but it provides a good bit of entertainment. This time he has on Johnathan Phelps of the “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church and former Navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt. You might recall that the chaplain [...]

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 [...]
