Group That Mocks Native Americans Gets Public Lands From Congress

Imagine that a predominantly European-American organization set up a club in downtown Chicago in which children were taught to dress up in blackface and imitate African-Americans. Imagine that this group then asked Congress to help expand its facilities by giving it part of what had been public park. The equivalent of that is what happened yesterday, only instead of mocking African-Americans, the Boy Scouts of America are mocking Native Americans. […]

Thank You New Hampshire, But…

If churches can do whatever they want without interference by the government, let’s be consistent in the application of this principle. If a church wants to set up a casino, let’s not interfere. […]

Why Obama's Rick Warren Homophobic Slap Matters To Heteros

At a news conference yesterday, Barack Obama defended his decision to bring White Supremacist David Duke to invoke his presidency at the Inauguration.

Evangelical Christian Pastor Rick Warren has consistently agitated against equal rights for gay and lesbian Americans. The mainstream news media has reported this.

Rick Warren has repeatedly referred to actions that prevent the implantation of fertilized eggs as a “Holocaust,” equating the hundreds of millions of women who have had abortions, who have IUDs and […]

Get Your Rick Warren Off My Barack Obama

Barack Obama is having extremist preacher Rick Warren deliver an official religious invocation at the Presidential Inauguration? Eeeew. That’s gross. Get your Rick Warren off my Barack Obama! […]

National Religious Campaign Against Torture Descends on Gov’t November 12

The drawing of religious boundaries around an issue of morality may be good for PR value, but it’s alienating, restrictive of membership and even deceptive in its implicit claim that religious Americans are somehow more moral. The National Religious Campaign Against Torture does itself no service by excluding the secular from its anti-torture activism. Secular […]

Colin Powell: Obama is Not a Muslim, But What if He Were?

Colin Powell on Meet the Press:

I’m also troubled by, not what Senator McCain says, but what members of the party say. And it is permitted to be said such things as, “Well, you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim.” Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim, he’s a Christian. He’s […]

Hillary Clinton Says You Must Teach Your Children That Anything Is Possible As Long as You’re Not a Hillbilly

Pardon me, but did that headline upset you?

All right, no, she didn’t say that. But imagine if she did. Imagine if in her August 2008 DNC speech Hillary Clinton said the following:

That is our duty, to build that bright future, and to teach our children that in America there is no chasm too […]
