1 Day of Same-Sex Marriages in Michigan Provides a Test of Angry Anti-Gay God Theory

Susanne Atanus, the Republican Party winner in Illinois’ 9th District congressional race, is the latest in a long line of preachers and politicians to proclaim that God controls the weather and uses dire weather to punish political jurisdictions that are kind to gay people:

“I am a conservative Republican and I believe in God first,” [...]

Ted Cruz Seeks To Establish Jim Crow Marriage System

In the 20th century, the South, desperate to preserve its system of racist social hierarchy, set up Jim Crow laws at the state level, creating explicit legal discrimination on the basis of ethnic identity across the region. The rights that many Americans enjoyed in the North and West were taken away from them when they [...]

New Frontier in Weather Science Emerges, Thanks to Anti-Gay Politico?

A tip of the pen to Fred Clark for bringing my attention to the hubbub surrounding the recent declaration by UK Independence Party (UKIP) politician David Silvester that massive flooding in the UK was a direct consequence of the decision to legalize same-sex marriage in the nation.

Reaction to this claim includes the usual outrage, [...]

Doesn’t The Book Of Matthew Actually Open Acceptance To Same Sex Marriage?

I was reading an article this morning, which defended the Biblical basis for opposing same-sex marriage, claiming that Jesus specifically opposed gay and lesbian marriage in the 19th chapter of the Book of Matthew when he stated, “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and [...]

Cabalicious Sex Plans

The traditional, divinely-endorsed form of marriage that we all can agree upon is the union between a man and a woman, just in order to make babies – this is what right activists say, at least. But then, reality confronts their vision of a unified, restrictive marriage state. The majority of Americans actually support the [...]

Bill In Congress Seeks To Create Marriage Inequality Across America

Dismantling constitutional rights that protect all Americans endangers the rights of all – not just the particular group of people who Randy Weber and his allies seek to target. Congressman Weber isn’t perceptive enough to grasp that concept, however. [...]

Wednesday, November 13: no hurricane hits Hawaii. Thursday, November 14: no hurricane hits Hawaii. Friday, November 15: no hurricane hits Hawaii. Saturday, November 16: no hurricane hits Hawaii. Sunday, November 17: no hurricane hits [...]

Jesus and His Dad Damn Sodomite Illinois with 57 Degrees and Cloudy Skies

We keep hearing that God will punish communities that allow same-sex marriage.

Well, today God had His chance. The Illinois House just voted to legalize same-sex marriage.

What mighty weather judgment did Jesus and His Dad send to Illinois in response? November temperatures in the fifties, with cloudy skies.

But just you wait! Tonight, it’s [...]

It’s been a Big Gay Year. Where are the Hurricanes of Doom?

Motivational speaker Ken Crow is the latest right-wing Christian to declare that God will use natural disaster as an instrument of judgment against communities that allow same-sex marriage. Crow posted to Twitter yesterday: “Will gay marriage destroy America?”

Crow links to his own article in that Tweet. Crow’s article supplies the answer to the [...]

Marriage Messages In Children’s Media

From Ninjago: “I may look totally different, and evil may now course through my veins, but I am still the same man you married.”

From Wonder Woman in Justice League of America comic number 38: “As I told you before, Steve Trevor, I can’t marry you until my services are no longer needed to [...]

Australian State Getting Ready For Same Sex Marriage

The opponents of marriage equality for heterosexuals and homosexuals have argued that that equality isn’t tolerable because same-sex marriage isn’t traditional.

New South Wales is preparing to be the next place to declare: Tradition schmadition! The parliament there is now preparing legislation to make same-sex marriages legally recognized. It would be the first Australian [...]
