Epiphanies!

© Jen Sorensen Recent events have raised the hopes and dreams of progressives in the US. I think the popularity of Bernie Sanders is a wonderful sign of this. It wasn’t so long ago that the word “liberal” was being used like it was a dirty word (let alone “socialist”!) I’m still a moderate. I […]

Channeling Intent

© Ruben Bolling I know I’ve already pointed out the hypocrisy of Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia but this comic was just too funny. I think I have a new theory. Maybe the conservative justices are just treating the Constitution like the Bible. After all, you can justify almost any behavior by selectively picking verses […]

The Right’s Right to Deny Rights?

© Jen Sorensen I’m just waiting for them to exercise the right to shut up. My only consolation is that future generations will undoubtably look back at gay bashers the same way we look back at slave owners.

GOP Silver Linings

© David Horsey Do you ever wonder why so little of the radical conservative agenda ever becomes reality? For example, even when the GOP controlled all three branches of our government, abortion remained legal. Remember when gays were the favorite whipping boys of Republican political candidates? And now, the Supreme Court opinion legalizing same sex […]

Jihad!

I will never recognize it in my heart because God gave marriage between a man and a woman and that’s what marriage is. And I don’t think the court – since it never defined marriage – doesn’t have the right to redefine it. God gave us marriage. Period. And God doesn’t change his mind. I’m […]

Love and Respect

Some quotes from Helen Philpot (of Margaret and Helen): It’s just so odd that all this hatred and discrimination seems to be emanating from a bunch of Republicans who claim to represent Jesus. Now there is a conundrum. As a Christian politician do you abide by the law of the land and treat others with […]

Gay Wedding Advice!

Key & Peele have graciously shared some gay wedding advice. After all, it is a very real possibility that anyone can now get invited to a gay wedding. Inquiring people want to know! What will happen at it? How should you behave?

The Dark Cloud Inside the Silver Lining?

The article “Please Don’t Make Me Get Gay Married” is not about gays forcing their agenda on straight people. In fact, quite the opposite. It raises a down side to the recent Supreme Court decision legalizing same sex marriage everywhere. It is a problem straight people have had to put up with for years, but […]

Parting Irony

The founder of the hateful anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps, died last year. One of his 13 children, Nate Phelps (who became an outspoken critic of the church after he left it in 1980) posted this message to Twitter after the Supreme Court decision legalizing same sex marriage: Nate also offered to officiate at […]

Playing the Gay Card

Three time former GOP presidential candidate Alan Keyes is delusional. On TV a few days ago, Keyes said that he does not believe the shooting in a black church by a white supremacist was racially motivated. Seriously. Despite the statements of witnesses or the fact that the shooter himself published a racist manifesto online. Keyes […]

The Real Colbert

Stephen Colbert (the real one, not the fake conservative) makes fun of the Supreme Court: UPDATE: Hey, never let it be said that we aren’t “fair and balanced”. Here’s Bill O’Reilly’s response to Colbert on Fox News: Colbert has said that he modeled his conservative persona on Bill O’Reilly, so is O’Reilly a bit miffed […]

Justice Scalia is Not Happy

One might even say that he isn’t very gay. It was bad enough yesterday when the Supreme Court deflected a challenge to Obamacare (over his vigorous dissent), but today it legalized same-sex marriage in the whole country. In Scalia’s dissent to the gay marriage ruling, he quoted from the majority opinion and gave his version […]

Executive Disorder

Last month, Indiana passed a strong anti-gay-rights law and it caused a national backlash against the state. So you might think that other states would think twice before doing something similar. But that logic doesn’t apply to Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana and likely presidential candidate. Instead of thinking twice, he is doubling down. […]

Jeb Bush Moves Right

Dispelling any idea that he might be a moderate Republican, Jeb Bush made it clear in an interview on Sunday that he is absolutely against gay rights. When asked if he believes there should be a constitutional right to marriage (which the mostly conservative Supreme Court could rule this summer), he said “I don’t”. Bush […]
