Barber’s Site Features Christian Reconstructionist

Is there any limit to how extreme Matt Barber’s new site BarbWire can get? Apparently not. They’ve got a genuine Christian Reconstructionist, Lee Duigon, writing for them now.

Uganda Shuts Down HIV/AIDS Clinic

The horrors of that brutal new anti-gay law in Uganda are becoming more appalling by the day. The Ugandan police shut down one of the few clinics in that country that treated those with HIV and AIDS and arrested clinic staff for the “crime” of “promoting homosexuality.”

Wingnut Longs for the Days He Could Whip Bill Maher

Tristan Emmanuel is upset by Bill Maher’s entirely accurate comment that the God of the Bible is a “psychotic mass murderer.” Really, really upset. So upset that he longs for the “good old days” when Maher would be publicly whipped for his blasphemy.

Ham: Eternal Torment An Act of Grace and Mercy

Sometimes I’m just astonished by how fundamentalist Christians use words. They seem to be like Humpty Dumpty, declaring that words can mean whatever they want them to mean. A perfect example is Ken Ham’s claim that God is going to burn Bill Maher (and the rest of us heathens, of course) in a lake of …

Iraqi Women Protest Horrifying Legislation

There is a new law proposed in Iraq, and approved by the cabinet, that would set the cause of womens’ rights in Iraq back many decades and constitute a serious regression even from the days of Saddam Hussein, who was, despite many other flaws, relatively progressive in that regard. A group of women protested that …
