A New Fan is “Concerned”

Our new fan, Pete, wrote to us to tell us we really need to consider the concerns he brings up about marriage equality, namely, that allowing gay people to adopt kids is a violation of the kids’┬árights. When we consider his concerns, he admonishes us to be “unbiased and completely honest.” Pete presents a fairly …

No better than the bigots they claim to fight

Addendum: Ask an Atheist now has been added to the partners page. A shame it took a little public shaming to accomplish it, but for now, hold off on the email and Facebook abuse. Thanks. Okay, try this on for size. And pay close fucking attention, because this shit is why we need Atheism+, in …

Trololololol

Nothing about blended fabrics, though.

Hey! Want to piss off some homophobic fundie bigots? Of course you do! So recently, a dearly beloved snack food came out in support of marriage equality. And there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth among people whose lives are filled with anger and fear, that they would never again be able to enjoy …

Because Photoshop is more fun than doing responsible adult stuff

Being white with perfect teeth is presumably optional.

With the recent anti-gay vote in North Carolina, followed by Obama’s belated “sure, why not?” pronouncement of same-sex marriage acceptability, a number of Christians are doubling down on the hate, and this photo of a billboard is making the rounds on Facebook today. Wag that I am (check my name), I couldn’t resist firing up …

It’s only surprising that they didn’t Photoshop horns onto his head. Clearly what this calls for is some Photoshoppery of our own. Let’s get the mockery started!

Why marriage?

A viewer from Thailand writes: My friend is a big fan of your show and would like to know why, given your Atheism, you still believe in marriage. His point of view is that marriage is a religious institution, so why would an atheist have anything to do with it? He asks if it’s for …

About Last Weekend

The rumor is true. I got married on May 1st. Wedded, actually. Texas doesn’t yet allow same-sex couples to be married, but it won’t be too long before that changes, I think. I married my partner of almost 12 years, Elton. We are lucky to be together as we complement each-other well. I’m the practical …

Another Battle Won

I’m sure everyone’s heard by now that California Proposition 8 has been struck down in federal court. Same-sex couples are on their way to being able to marry in California. The drama will play on for a while, unfortunately. The ruling has been stayed to give opponents time to appeal, something of a courtesy from …

Cal-irony-fication

The California Supreme US District Court is currently hearing a case over whether 2008 Proposition 8 (which bans same-sex marriage in the California State Constitution) is itself constitutional. If the court rules that it is not constitutional (by the state’s US constitution), then same-sex marriage would revert to being allowed in the state. This is …

Another konk on the head with the Reality Mallet

Okay, so you know how the homophobic Christian Right clutches its pearls and bleats that if teh gayz are allowed to marry for realz, it will, like, totally destroy the institution of marriage for everybody, forever? So we have to keep gay marriage illegal because the sanctity of traditional straight marriage simply won’t survive otherwise? …
