North Carolina Truth: you can marry your Cousin in Charlotte but not your Partner in Pinehurst

After North Carolina voters turned out to reject equal rights for gay and lesbian couples this week, I thought this report from Politicol was just too outrageous to be true:

North Carolina Bans Gay Marriage but You Can Marry Your First Cousin

In an outrageous attempt to regulate religious views, the state of North Carolina [...]

Republicans Push Out Romney Staffer. For Performance? No, for being Gay.

Some credit is due to Mitt Romney for hiring political staffer Richard Grenell despite the fact Grenell is openly gay.

Think about that sentence. Is this still a world in which people who don’t discriminate against gay people are worthy of special recognition? If you’re living in the Republicans’ world, it is. Grenell resigned from [...]

Satanic Influences Outed By Another Damned Survey!

“The scientific evidence of how same-sex attraction most likely may be created provides a credible basis for a spiritual explanation that indicts the devil.” — Daniel Avila, October 28 2011, writing for the official newsletter of the Boston Catholic Archdiocese.

The truth behind Daniel Avila’s scientific affirmation of satanic influence behind homosexuality is irrefutable. It’s [...]

God Punishes Sodomite NY Marriage with an end to Killer Heat Wave and Drought

New York same-sex marriages began this Monday, July 25, a day after local clerks in New York State started issuing same-sex marriage licenses. How did God punish New York? With weather, of course. Christian conservatives have declared over and over that God will punish societies that endorse gay and lesbian relationships with nasty weather disasters.

Evangelist’s Prediction of Mass Arson Flickers Out

In March of 2009, Christian evangelist David Wilkerson shared a message from the Holy Spirit, reiterating an old prophecy of flaming American doom that was “about to happen” thanks to (yes) the gays:

I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message to all on our mailing list, and to friends [...]

Follow Up Cindy Jacobs on God and Birdfalls: Do You See a Pattern?

Fundamentalist Christian media presence Cindy Jacobs has a theory that attempts to explain recent reports of massive bird deaths:

There are actually some patterns you can see where a nation will make a decision that is contrary to the principles of God, and after that there is some kind of answer that God gives, being [...]

#2 Way to Make Things Better: Come Out

If you’re looking to improve your social environment, come out.

I’m not just talking about revealing your sexual orientation, although clearly that applies. If you’re a member of a religious minority, let it be known. If you have an unusual political stance, share it. The results can not only free up your interpersonal relationships, but [...]

Republican Candidates Ally With Man Who Says Gay Suicide is Kids’ own Fault and Calls for More Bullying

Tony Perkins of the hard-right Christian Family Research Council came out today on NPR, in a sense. No, he didn’t admit he’s gay. But he did come out to freely admit he thinks that it’s gay kids’ own fault when they commit suicide:

Tony Perkins, president of the evangelical Family Research Council, says gay activists [...]

Slay the Minoc, Merlin Froyd!

Of all the names in the hundreds of races for congressional seats this year, my favorite is Merlin Froyd, Republican candidate running against Howard Berman in California district 28. It’s such an evocative name, isn’t it? When I say “Merlin Froyd,” I think of a nervous acolyte being seized about the collar by a wizard [...]

The Christian Right’s Counterargument for Bullying Gay Kids

The case for Spirit Day, October 20 2010:

It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in memory of the recent gay suicides. Many of them suffered from homophobic abuse in their schools or in their homes. We want to take a stand to say that we will not tolerate this. Purple [...]
