Westboro Baptist, Ann Coulter, Bill O’Reilly, and the KKK: Pick a Side!

The “Culture Wars” are dumb. Who even knows what the expression really means? It seems to me it’s a struggle between the tolerant and intolerant in which the intolerant paint the tolerant as “intolerant” of their intolerance in the name of maintaining their intolerance in the wake of the tolerants’ “intolerance.” In less-confusing rhetoric, everyone […]

The Tea Party Could Not Be More Insecure In The Face Of Coffee

The presence of the words “tea party” in the title should tip you off that there is very little substance to be found in this post. Still, it’s good for a laugh. So there’s this group called the Coffee Party. It’s pretty much the perfect antithesis to the Tea Party. It started on Facebook, so […]

Atheist Free Speech = Atheist “Hate”?

Every time atheism gets attacked, it makes me wonder just how insecure some folks must be with their beliefs. Atheists, as a stigmatized group, are an easy target for that insecurity, and William J. Kelly, Republican candidate for Illinois comptroller, is very insecure. Because I haven’t covered this issue before, here’s some background. The Illinois […]

Doing Wrong for “Right,” The Continuing Ex-Gay Lesbian Custody Battle

You may remember a few weeks ago when I wrote about the Vermont-Virginia lesbian custody battle. My simple goal at the time was to debunk the WND article on the matter. Now, there’s been an interesting new development that I’d like to comment on (and then we’ll see how WND’s compares—if they even comment further). […]

Unsurprisingly, There Are SO Many Things Wrong With This WND Story

Wow! Where to begin. I think more than anything, the way this story on WorldNetDaily is written shows how nothing is more important than maintaining the dominance of Christianity to right-wing extremists. Let’s start with the headline: Lesbian awarded custody of Christian’s only child Admittedly, the “lesbian” in question is demonstratively (and in this case, […]

Social Justice Education = “Indoctrination” and “Reeducation”

Do you know what microaggressions are? Have you ever been in a situation where you were tracking disparities in privilege? Have you ever thought about triggers and the ways you tend to respond to them? Do you understand what white privilege is and why every single white American benefits from it? Do you understand the […]

That means that at WorldNetDaily, you can get amazing free gifts with your purchases to further your descent into naïve idiocy!

Don’t Read Harry Potter and Don’t Shop at Gap/Diversity Is a Cancer

I really didn’t expect to be writing about this regularly. Honestly. But, this is too good… I wrote last week about the American Family Association’s boycott of Gap, Inc. Just as a reminder, the AFA took umbrage that Gap would not specifically cater to Christianity by taking what Gap called a more inclusive approach. How […]

We Have To Stop Letting God Be A Crutch For Hate

This week has been a harsh reminder of why I started this blog. Look at news being discussed just today, November 6, 2009. » Of the donations supporting the anti-gay Yes on 1 measure in Maine, 89% ($3 million) came from churches, Christian organizations, and their employees. The Catholic Church alone directly contributed $553,608.27. » […]

Impeach Obama?/Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize?

Okay, I awoke this morning to two stories from opposite ends of the political spectrum and I just want to say that neither makes a whole lot of sense. First, the story that actually has legitimacy: President Obama is receiving the Nobel Peace Prize? The Nobel Committee announced Friday that the annual peace prize was […]
