Why Is Society So Afraid and Ashamed of Sex? Short Answer: Religion.

I’ve been thinking about this one, because it comes up a lot. Sex is something that raises eyebrows and it’s because people are really terrified of sex before it happens and really ashamed of it after it does. Of course, I mean mostly in the public light. Before I get into too much detail, let’s […]

GAP – “Christmas” = Inclusivity + Bigotry? WHAT?

I don’t want this whole blog to turn into a running account on the “War on Christmas.” I want organizations who aren’t kowtowing to whiny Christians to feel supported, but I don’t want to make it seem like anybody really cares about these issues. I certainly won’t be calling for any boycotts of stores that […]

AFA Action Alert: “The Mythical ‘Safe Sex’ Message”

Well, yesterday was a fluke. The AFA Action Alert emails are back to being ridiculous. Today’s is too good, so I needed a full post just to tear it apart.

AFA and I Agree: New A&F Shirts Are Inappropriate

Normally when I receive an “Action Alert” from Don/Tim Wildmon and the American Family Association, it’s something stupid or despicable. Some recent examples include: (9/4) ENDA – Work place is the wrong place for sexual politics (8/24) AARP ramps up support for ObamaCare with TV/Radio ads (8/19) PepsiCo forms Chicago Gay Pride organization You get […]

It’s back! You know you missed it. Here’s this week’s wrap-up of the charming propaganda provided by OneNewsNow. 3/13/09 – Steele disappoints conservatives on abortion, homosexuality This was too good to ignore.  I’m pretty sure everybody saw this… Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele is under fire from social conservatives for telling GQ magazine that […]

Alert! Medical Professionals Might Have To Do Their Job!

Man, this AFA stuff is incredible.  Thanks again for whoever signed me up for it. Here is today’s Action Alert: “Obama seeks to take away religious rights of doctors and health care professionals who refuse to perform abortions” You probably don’t want to or need to read the whole thing.  It doesn’t say anything particularly […]
