Eastman Predicts SCOTUS Won’t Overturn Marriage Bans

John Eastman, former dean of the Chapman University School of Law and chairman of the board of the National Organization for Marriage, is nothing if not an eternal optimist. He tells OneNewsNow, the American Family Association’s “news” site, that the Supreme Court will not overturn state bans on same-sex marriage.

Beck’s Website Debunks Beck. Again.

I’ve lost track of how many times claims made by Glenn Beck on his radio show have been debunked even by his own website, The Blaze, but it’s a bunch. Here’s yet another example, with Beck claiming that a dozen missing airplanes from the Tripoli airport are proof that all his predictions are coming true and his website pointing out that this is all false.

Fox News General: ‘Now the Time’ to Overthrow Obama

Retired Gen. Thomas McInerney, who is a paid Fox News contributor, went on Rick Wiles’ soon-to-end radio along with fellow retired Gen. Paul Vallely and declared that it is “now the time” for a revolution to overthrow President Obama because he’s turning America into a “socialistic, communistic society.”

‘Coach’ Dave: Teachers Must Proselytize, Because DEMONS!

“Coach” Dave Daubenmire has his usual pseudo-macho bluster about the lack of “real men” standing up to demand that public school teachers teach students to be Christians, which he says is important because otherwise kids are “being indoctrinated every day with the doctrines of demons.” Because who needs that pesky First Amendment thing anyway?

‘Christian’ Putin Targeting Other Christians in Ukraine

As innumerable Christian right figures in this country praise Vladimir Putin for his brutal crackdown on gay rights (the type they still dearly wish they could do in this country), the New York Times reports that Russian forces are targeting Christians in the Ukraine who aren’t Russian Orthodox.

NYPD Beat the Hell Out of Man — On Video

Here’s a textbook example of how so many instances of police brutality go. A man is searched for a clearly trumped up reason — they claim they were responding to a “noise complaint” — then is arrested for asking why he was searched. When he asks why he’s being arrested, he’s beaten repeatedly by a gang of officers. And it’s on video.

The Absurd Rhetoric of the Anti-Equality Position

There’s an old legal proverb that goes like this: “When the facts are on your side, pound the facts. When the law is on your side, pound the law. When neither is on you side, pound the table.” Those who oppose legalizing same-sex marriage have followed this strategy. Since neither the facts or the law is on their side, they are forced to resort to dishonest spin and wildly exaggerated rhetoric, as law student Luke Douglas displays perfectly.

2015: Year of Interfaith Service

Last November, I spoke at an interfaith thanksgiving service in Grand Rapids on behalf of CFI Michigan (I’m on the board of advisers). In that talk I suggested that we all do more than just get together once a year to say nice things about getting along. Specifically, I said that we should all work together on community service projects in the area all year long. That suggestion has now become a reality as local groups declare 2015 a year of interfaith service.

Fischer: NFL Discriminates Against Straight Players

In the world that Bryan Fischer thinks he lives in, a world in which up is down, black is white and Obama is a Muslim communist, apparently it’s straight people that are being terribly discriminated against in the NFL because the Dallas Cowboys signed the only openly gay player in professional football to their practice squad.
