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 [...]

Grassroots Wave? Americans Elect Sees 200% Rise in Oklahoma Party Registrations

Who’s riding a grassroots wave of support?

On the one hand, we have Americans Elect’s claim to grassroots support as shown in this February 28 photo of former Oklahoma Senator Dan Boren with boxes and boxes and boxes of signatures of people who established Americans Elect as a political party in the state of Oklahoma:

Americans Elect: If We Can’t Have Ballot Access, You Can’t Either

When Americans Elect paid signature gatherers to obtain a line on the 2012 ballot in state after state, it told us that its actions weren’t selfish. No, Americans Elect said, it was taking action on behalf of the American people, to give us all “more choices on the ballot in November”:

But now that [...]

The Problem With Congress is Too Many Atheists, Bridenstine Suggests

Jim Bridenstine doesn’t just insult atheists when he uses atheism as a political scapegoat on which to blame America’s problems. He insults the intelligence of the voters in Oklahoma as well. [...]

Oklahoma Democrats Have A Super Option In Tomorrow’s Election

In Oklahoma tomorrow, voters have the opportunity to vote for Democratic presidential candidate Darcy Richardson instead of Barack Obama. Richardson is running for President as a progressive candidate, promoting the policies that Democratic voters support, but Barack Obama has abandoned. [...]

Biggest UU Congregation Reflects UUA Christian Dominance

In Tulsa’s local version of Unitarian Universalism, I found the very same problem I’ve seen elsewhere. Unitarian Universalism claims to be diverse, and claims to be welcoming, but when non-Christians walk through the door, they find themselves left in a corner, ignored at best, and often belittled. [...]

Apparently in Oklahoma they feel God is Needy

Recently seen bumper stickers in tandem:

The America Bless God website referred to on the bumper sticker explains itself:

As I have been growing in my faith, learning about God, country, life, and all that makes up our life, I have rediscovered that we, America, the United States, were founded as a God honoring [...]

Spiritual Analysis Reveals There’s A Banger in Binger

Orthodox Rabbi Yehuda Levin of the Jews for Morality loves to mention that after he went to Columbia, South Carolina to pray for rain on August 7, 1986, it rained. He doesn’t like so much to mention that the day he prayed, it didn’t rain, or the day after that, or the day after that. [...]

Oklahoma Hold Out Confronting Tom Coburn on Lord’s Resistance Army

In northern Uganda and occasionally in bordering countries, the Lord’s Resistance Army has used the mask of religion to justify a decades-long campaign of abduction, slavery and brutal warfare. Senator Russell Feingold has introduced S. 1067, the Lord’s Resistance Army Disarmament and Northern Uganda Recovery Act. Feingold’s bill would provide humanitarian relief to those fleeing [...]

Walk the Planks of the Oklahoma Pirate Party Platform

The Pirates of Oklahoma have set sail, in the landlubber sense!

A new political party in Oklahoma is organizing in some apparent sympathy with, if not direct allegiance to, Sweden’s Pirate Party that a year ago got into big legal hot water for open file-sharing. More broadly, the Pirate Party of Sweden advocates for government [...]

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. [...]
