Shall we vote on alleged adulterer, hypocrite and anti-gay MN lawmaker Amy Koch’s marriage?

By: Tuesday December 20, 2011 3:43 pm

Why not? The state of Minnesota, like North Carolina, faces a marriage discrimination amendment at the polls in 2012. Minnesota Senate Majority Leader (er, former) Amy Koch (R, no surprise) had no trouble supporting legislation that would bar same-sex couples from civil marriage. It looks like she was “pulling a Newt” regarding own domestic legal [...]

The messology of Bishop Eddie Long continues

By: Thursday December 8, 2011 12:00 pm

Bishop Eddie Long, one of the Black Church’s prominent pastors of “prosperity gospel” and bling-bling theology in the Southeast, is flashing neither his gold nor silver these days. The embattled pastor had hoped that settling a sex scandal lawsuit for an undisclosed amount against allegations that he used influence, trips, gifts, and jobs to coerce [...]

Walsh responds to receiving ‘pro-family’ award, doesn’t talk about owed child support

By: Tuesday November 8, 2011 8:04 am

By now, we all know the latest mess coming from the Family Research Council – how the organization recently awarded Congressman Joe Walsh an award for supposedly fighting for “family values” even though Walsh owes over $100,000 in child support. Of course the ugly irony is that earlier that week, FRC publicly prayed that God [...]

Newt Gingrich, model of fidelity, tells us that same-sex marriage is a ‘temporary aberration’

By: Friday September 30, 2011 1:50 pm

Great Caesar’s Ghost! My hypocrisy meter has just blown the F up. From the Iowa Caucuses blog (I know you’ve protected your keyboards, right?): “I believe that marriage is between a man and woman,” Gingrich said. “It has been for all of recorded history and I think this is a temporary aberration that will dissipate. [...]

By: Thursday September 29, 2011 2:42 pm

Is it me or are these bigots so self-involved in their hate that they forget the whole “bear false witness” and “thou shalt not steal” hoohah lickety split? Ravalli County Sheriff Chris Hoffman said Harris Himes turned himself in Wednesday morning after learning that there was a warrant for his arrest. District Judge James Haynes [...]

Video Break: GOP Rep. John Fleming – the Congressman’s just getting by on $400K

By: Monday September 19, 2011 1:15 pm

Bring out the tiniest of violins. Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) is a victim of class warfare because, after taxes, he only has $400K left over to feed his family. Whoops! He’s even landing on a softer pile of cash – the $400K is AFTER he’s fed his kids. OK, even if his family is Duggar-sized, [...]

By: Friday September 9, 2011 10:37 pm

Here’s some jaw-dropping cowardice at work in the North Carolina Senate. At the 11th hour — of course in the dead media zone of Friday afternoon — Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger (@SenatorBerger,, 919-733-5708) and staff are not only trying to hide the fact that they will bring a marriage amendment bill up [...]

Bigoted GOP Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum gets mad at Piers Morgan for asking him about bigotry

By: Thursday September 1, 2011 11:15 am

GOP 2012 Clown Car occupant Rick Santorum called for the Homobigot Waaaambulance last night when Piers Morgan had the nerve to challenge him on his public opinion of civil marriage equality.

Bam Bam Barber thinks the Homosexual Agenda wants him “Behind Bars”

By: Tuesday August 30, 2011 3:40 pm

I don’t know how many of our new FDL readers have heard about Matt “Bam Bam” Barber of Liberty Counsel, but he’s one of the most disturbing and entertaining figures of the anti-LGBT movement.
