FOX: If We Can’t Force Our Morality Upon Others’ Personal Lives, it Must Mean We’re Being Persecuted

“Reporter” Todd Starnes of FOX News has issued his prediction for the fallout from yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling that because of the Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution, conservative Christians can’t continue to prevent other people from exercising their own freedom to marry:

“Churches and faith-based business should prepare for lawsuits and government […]

Rick Santorum’s Worry Record on Same-Sex Marriage

In 2015, Rick Santorum is running for the Republican nomination for President of the United States.

In 2006, Rick Santorum took to the floor of the Senate to argue for S.J. Res. 1, a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would expressly outlaw any definition of marriage other than heterosexual coupling. Then-Senator Santorum asked […]

On the Roadside, Changing Times

Even out of full context, this sign by the side of the road in rural inland Maine is historically striking to me.  In full context, the shift it represents is even more striking:

Coastline of United States Sharply Altered in Post-Election Cataclysm

The morning after the 2012 elections saw a starkly changed American landscape, changed in a very literal sense as large sections of the North American landmass collapsed into the ocean.

As the dawn rose over the United States of America, it quickly became apparent that the entire states of Maine (where voters approved same-sex marriage […]

Beloved Defender of the Constitution Ron Paul Just Voted Against the Constitution Again

On May 9 of 2012, the House of Representatives voted to pass the Amendment 1096 to H.R. 5326, shortly before H.R. 5326 itself passed the House. Amendment 1096, introduced by Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, forbids the President from directing the Department of Justice to oppose the Defense of Marriage Act in court. A vote for […]

Americans Elect Mischaracterizes Bernie Sanders on Priorities and on Same-Sex Marriage

Americans Elect doesn’t call it a ratings system or a “National Match” anymore, but the information that constituted its ratings for hundreds of possible presidential candidates is still there. That rating information is still being used to characterize presidential candidates as the initial vote to pick its presidential nominee creeps ever closer, now just 124 […]

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.

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 […]

In Same-Sex Marriage Era, Massachusetts Divorce Rate Drops AGAIN

When anti-gay forces organize to stop gay and lesbian Americans from getting married to one another, they give their groups names like “the National Organization for Marriage” and talk about the “destruction of marriage.” They say that if you let same-sex marriages happen, it will lead to a moral “deinstitutionalization” of marriage that will in […]

The Gay-Friendly Towns of Coastal Hancock County, Maine

If you’re half of a gay or lesbian couple planning a trip to Maine later this year, make sure you know what you’re getting into. While the sign on the state’s southern border declares Maine to be “the way life should be,” whether things really are the way they should be varies from place to […]
