Gohmert Gets a New Conspiracy Theory?

There is no idea so extreme and bizarre that Rep. Louis Gohmert won’t swallow it and promote it, so it’s hardly a surprise that when a caller on Tony Perkins’ radio show suggested that the Sandy Hook tragedy was part of a grand conspiracy, Gohmert was more than happy to entertain the thought.

Robertson: Gays Will Force Christians to Have Sex

One of the most amusing things to me is watching the Christian right try to convince themselves and others that they’re not losing the fight on same-sex marriage. Phyllis Schlafly does so by citing polling data only of Republicans as if they represent everyone.

We’ve already seen several of the most prominent “ex-gay” leaders, including John Paulk and Alan Chambers, walk away from the movement and admit that they’re still gay despite years of pretending otherwise. Now yet another prominent leader of that movement, Yvette Cantu Schneider, writes on the GLAAD website that she’s still gay, just as she always was.

FBI Investigating Mike Adams’ Threats

I keep meaning to write about the appalling post by Mike Adams, the “health ranger,” telling his followers to kill supports of Monsanto and GMOs just like they would have killed the Nazis. He even apparently put up a Monsanto Collaborators site to tell them specifically who to kill, while claiming he wasn’t the one behind it. Now he’s caught the attention of the FBI:
