Staver Steps Down as Dean of Liberty U. Law School

Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman, is stepping down as dean of the Liberty University School of Law, presumably so he can continue his utter incompetence in other places. No word on whether he is also leaving Liberty Counsel, which is affiliated with the law school but is a separate organization.

Jim Bakker: Once a Con Man, Always a Con Man

Jim Bakker, the con man who sold fraudulent hotel scams while cheating on his wife and pretending to be a man of God in the 80s, is proving P.T. Burnum right. He’s still running a scam, only this time it’s selling survivalist supplies by telling wild tales of an Ebola epidemic and the collapse of the electric grid.

Michael Savage is Tired of Wimpy Soldiers and Their PTSD

Deranged wingnut Michael Savage, who has never served in the military, would like you to know that soldiers who suffer from PTSD after being exposed to the horrors of wars are a bunch of pansies and girly men who just need to toughen up and are responsible for Obama being elected and destroying everything.

Obama: Equal Protection Clause Demands Marriage Equality

President Obama continues his fake “evolution” on marriage equality. First he was all for it, while running for state office more than a decade ago. Then he was against it, when running for the Senate and for president. Then in 2012, he was suddenly for it (when the polls conveniently backed him), but thought it should be left to the states.

Gina Loudon Really Is Ridiculous

Elvis Wedding Chapel: No Gay Weddings!

You might want to put your irony meters away for this one. The Elvis Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, where you can get married by an Elvis impersonator, refuses to do same-sex weddings now that marriage equality has come to Nevada.

Barton: God Is Blackmailing Americans For Their Votes

The Christian right is always telling us that if we don’t vote the right way and don’t do the right things, the bully they worship is going to kick our asses something fierce. Or if they want to put a positive spin on it, he won’t “bless” the country if we don’t do what they tell us to do. David Barton is the latest:

Robertson: Courts Causing ‘Homosexual Behavior’

Pat Robertson made the bizarre claim that by not stopping same-sex marriage, “this onslaught of homosexual behavior that is being forced on us by the Supreme Court of the United States is having deadly consequences.” Does he think that people are suddenly turning gay because they can now get married? Or that if they can’t get married, they’ll just magically stop being gay?
