Phantoms battle it out while the real world burns

Nancy Goldstein has a post at Broadsheet about the Obama campaign’s invitation of Gene Robinson—the Episcopal Church’s first gay bishop—to deliver the invocation that starts the festivities, an obvious attempt to signal that Obama really means it when he said that Rick Warren was invited in some spirit of inclusion,…

The Peter’s ‘Ten Reasons to Support Americans For Truth in 2009′

After sharing the hilarious Top Ten Instances of Christian Bashing in America by the "Christian" Anti-Defamation Commission with you earlier in the week, it's only fair that I follow up with friend of your favorite neighborhood “vicious anti-Christian lesbian activist” and “lesbian blog-stremist” Peter LaBarbera's equally unhinged Top 10 list…

Wanda Sykes and the end of certain euphemisms

Very cool: The passage of Prop 8 has given Wanda Sykes to dig in and start speaking out against it. “You know, I don’t really talk about my sexual orientation,” the Emmy Award winner said. “I didn’t feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily…

This California couple Rachel Bird and Gideon Codding are such vile bigots that they’re boycotting marriage because gay people get to have it now. Those are the terms that have replaced “bride” and “groom” on the state’s new gender-neutral marriage…

Marriage: Because we need you all figured out

That’s what I came to realize that Maggie Gallagher must believe after reading this article of hers, where she suggests that gay marriage isn’t really marriage because—get this—some gay couples are non-monogamous. Less than a decade later, Eric Erbelding from the perch of…
