Oh, Ray Comfort

I kept seeing pictures of this post from professional moron Ray Comfort all over my Facebook feed and I actually assumed it was a parody. As astonishingly ignorant as Ray Comfort is, I didn’t think he was dumb enough to actually believe this. I was wrong. He actually said it:

That Damn ‘Gaystapo’ and Their ‘Special Rights’

Bill Muehlenberg of BarbWire gives us that familiar old rhetoric about gay people wanting “special rights” for demanding exactly the same anti-discrimination protections that people like him already have. Oh, and it’s the “gaystapo,” thank you very much.

Rafael Cruz: Obama to Take Our Guns Like Mao and Stalin

Rafael Cruz continues his unblemished record of baseless paranoia by going on the Faith and Liberty radio show and declaring that Obama is a “totalitarian” who is going to take everyone’s guns just like Mao and Stalin did before slaughtering tens of millions of people.

Anti-Choice Group Launches With Speech from Christian Reconstructionist

Personhood Iowa is the new anti-choice group affiliated with the National Personhood Alliance, a group so far out on the fringe that they think the National Right to Life Committee is a bunch of liberal appeasers. So naturally they launched the group with a speech from Christian Reconstructionist and neo-Confederate secessionist Michael Peroutka.

The Foundation Beyond Belief and the American Humanist Association are joining forces for a Humanist Crisis Response to the child refugee crisis at our Southern border.

Maryland GOP Running From Peroutka

Now that Christian Reconstructionist, secessionist and neo-Confederate Michael Peroutka has won the Republican primary for the Anne Arundel County commission in Maryland, that state’s GOP is having to distance itself from him and his absolutely unhinged views.

Jeffress Offers Baseless Paranoia

Robert Jeffress is upset about Obama’s executive order forbidding discrimination against gay people by federal contractors and he’s offering a completely evidence-free slippery slope argument that it will lead to churches losing tax-exempt status.

WND Columnist Goes All Macho on Michael Sam

Carl Jackson, one of the seemingly infinite number of Christian right radio hosts in existence, is quite agitated that anyone would dare to criticize former NFL coach Tony Dungy, another Christian righter himself. Because Christians are apparently untouchable and if you dare to criticize one, you are “crucifying” and “persecuting” them.

How Hobby Lobby Could Make Electoral Gender Gap Wider

When the Hobby Lobby ruling came down a few weeks ago, I quickly pointed out that this could be a boon to Democrats in this year’s midterm elections. A new poll provides support for that claim, showing a significant majority of women less likely to support someone who supported Hobby Lobby’s position in the case.

Sex Work Should Be Legalized

Like many of the other bloggers on this network, I think it’s high time that sex work be legalized for both principled and pragmatic reasons. The principle is obvious — it isn’t the government’s, any government’s, business what two consenting adults want to do with each other in private. Here’s part of the pragmatic case:

A Republican (of course) legislator in Florida loved Dinesh D’Souza’s latest bit of inane propaganda against Obama so much that he wants it to be shown to every student in that state’s public school. In fact, he wants to pass a law making it mandatory.

Poor Gretchen Carlson is Being Persecuted

There’s yet another ridiculous Christian persecution film out and it’s called, cleverly enough, Persecuted. It’s a dark, dystopic tale of a future where all Christians will be framed for murder if they don’t bake cakes for gay weddings, or something. The Worldnetdaily loves it, of course, and they claim that Gretchen Carlson of Fox News, who appears in the film, is being “persecuted” for that fact.

Klayman: Obama ‘Literally Destroying the World’

Larry Klayman, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Mat Staver, sometimes lets his rhetoric get away from him just a bit. In his latest Worldnetdaily column, he declares that Obama is “literally destroying the world” before launching into a list of reasons he thinks Obama is a Muslim.

Reagan: Far More Undocumented Immigrants Than Obama

PolitiFact takes a look at a claim by Deirdre Imus that under President Reagan, illegal immigrants weren’t “pouring in” to the United States like they are now under Obama. The reality? Illegal immigration was far higher under Reagan than under Obama. The number of people arrested crossing the border averaged more than a million a year under Reagan, just over 400,000 under Obama. But that’s just the start:

The Pathetic Life of John Rocker

Disgraced former major leaguer and racist asshole John Rocker finally made it to Cooperstown. No, not into the Baseball Hall of Fame, but on the sidewalk in front of a store, where he set up a table selling xenophobic t-shirts and a hard night of drinking with him.
