WND’s Dishonest Spin on Nun Lawsuit

The Worldnetdaily has its usual dishonest spin on the lawsuit filed by a group of nuns. And it’s a “Worldnetdaily exclusive,” which appears to mean nothing. Lots of other news outlets are writing about the same case. If it’s an “exclusive” then so is every story.

CPAC Yanks American Atheists’ Booth

American Atheists had an agreement with the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for a table at the event, but the conference decided at the last minute to renege on that agreement because, they disingenuously claim, they didn’t like the “tone” of a press release AA put out about it.

Ugandan Paper Prints Gay Hit List

Now that President Musevini has signed Uganda’s harsh new anti-gay law and put it into effect, the witch hunts have officially begun. A Ugandan newspaper published a list of 200 allegedly gay people. I fully expect that, like Nigeria, they will be rounding up anyone suspected of being gay.

Fischer Phones It In

Bryan Fischer just loves that proposed law in Arizona that allows Christians to discriminate against LGBT people and he delivered the usual idiotic rant about “jack-booted homofascist thugs” turning the United States into “Nazi Germany.” Blah blah blah.

Starnes: Bible Will Be Criminalized

When Todd Starnes isn’t making up fake persecution stories in the present day, he’s predicting future tales of martyrdom. He told Bryan Fischer that “we are going to see, within our lifetime, an attempt to outlaw or criminalize parts of the Bible or even perhaps pulling out parts of the Bible that have to deal …

Lively Loves Him Some Putin

Deranged bigot Scott Lively went on Bryan Fischer’s radio show and slobbered all over Russian authoritarian strongman Vladimir Putin, saying he was going to reestablish the Tsarist system (as if that would be a good thing) and return Christian values to the “Marxist” United States.

Look! A New Blog!

We haven’t added any new bloggers for a while, mostly because we were waiting to complete the redesign, but we’ve got one new one before that’s finished.

Chris Mapp wants to be the next senator from the state of Texas and he’s borrowing a page from Ted Nugent, spouting racial slurs and crude insults. And to show you just how out of touch this guy is, he endorsed people shooting “wetbacks” in front of a major newspaper editorial board.

Is America on Verge of Secular Tipping Point?

We’re all familiar with the survey data that shows that more Americans are secular-minded (not necessarily atheist) than ever before. But Peter Foster writes in the Telegraph that the trend toward secularization may be going faster than we think and that we may be on the verge of a major shift akin to what has …

A well-connected and powerful Republican lobbyist is trying to gin up interest in Congress for a bill that would ban gay men from playing in the NFL, which would have little chance of ever passing but will get Jack Burkman branded as the bigoted jerk that he is.

Notre Dame Denied Injunction on Contraception Mandate

The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s refusal to grant a preliminary injunction in the University of Notre Dame’s lawsuit challenging the ACA’s contraception mandate.
