Perkins Only Wants to Have It His Way

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council joins the chorus of bigots throwing a major tantrum over a San Francisco Burger King using rainbow-colored wrappers on their Whoppers. And with all the charm that a 14-year old comedian wannabe can muster, he calls them “Burger Queen.”

MN Republican Candidate A Young Earther

Remember Bob Frey, Michele Bachmann’s buddy who is running for Congress from Minnesota and thinks that AIDS is caused by an enzyme in sperm? I’m sure you’ll be shocked to find out that he’s also a young earth creationist who thinks humans and dinosaurs lived together and that this should be taught in schools.

Staver Thinks You Have a ‘Reprobate Mind’

Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman, has an explanation for why some people (like me and probably you too) are so upset by the Hobby Lobby ruling: Because God has “given us over to a reprobate mind” and we are therefore incapable of logic.

Another Moronic Claim that Atheists Don’t Exist

Alex Kocman, writing at Matt Barber’s wayward home for clueless dumbasses, seizes on a recent Science 2.0 article that is barely any better to claim that “atheists may not exist.” Funny, I’m pretty sure I exist and I’m pretty sure lots of other atheists do too. I’m sure you’ll be shocked to hear that they both articles vastly oversimplify the issue and draw ridiculous conclusions from far more reasonable premises.

‘Sovereign Citizen’: ‘Legalese’ Doesn’t Apply to Me

Another day, another “sovereign citizen” arrested who thinks the law doesn’t apply to him and he can do whatever he wants. This one stole $20,000 worth of copper wire from a church and then told the police that he doesn’t have to follow “legalese.”

First They Came For the Carbon Dioxide Molecules

Okay folks, I think we’ve found a Hitler analogy so mind-bogglingly stupid that it could make Godwin pull out a Luger and kill himself. A Princeton professor went on national television and said that scientists are demonizing carbon dioxide just like Hitler demonized the Jews.

The Death of Pat Buchanan’s America

In his latest column, old-school racist paleo-conservative Pat Buchanan declares that America is “no longer 1 nation, 1 people,” as if we ever were such a thing. But what he means by this is that we have too many brown-skinned people here now and he doesn’t like it one bit.

The Life of a Woman on Youtube

My friend Gretchen linked to this Jezebel article and noted that this is one of the reasons she hasn’t started a Youtube vlog. If this doesn’t ring true for you, you’re either completely oblivious or downright delusional about the way women are treated online (and offline too).

Obama is Giving Away 8 States to Mexico!

Well here’s a bizarre right-wing conspiracy I haven’t heard before. According to Dave Hodges, host of the Common Sense Show, President Obama is preparing to give away 8 states to Mexico to form the nation of Aztlan. I’ve heard that part before, but not that Obama is doing to do it.

FRC VP: Satan Behind Gay Rights

Kenyn Cureton, the Family Research Council’s Vice President of Church Ministries, tells an audience that the “demonized forces of hell” are behind the “homosexual agenda.” We hear this all the time from the anti-gay bigots of the Christian right. This is, quite literally, dehumanizing gay people and those who advocate equality.

Barton: God Will Punish Us With Routine Events

David Barton says that God is going to punish America for not slavishly praising anything the state of Israel does, no matter how destructive or wrong it might be by sending natural disasters that are bound to take place anyway. At the same time, of course, Muslim reactionaries will say that Allah is punishing America for supporting Israel. Both are totally and completely full of shit, of course.

Larry Pratt: Worse Than You Think

Larry Pratt, the leader of Gun Owners of America, is one of the most extreme voices on the right, so extreme that he thinks the NRA are a bunch of weak-kneed liberals. But a new profile of him in Rolling Stone shows that he’s even worse than I thought in a number of ways.

LaBarbera: Throw Doctors in Jail for Sex Change Surgery

In case you were laboring under the misconception that Peter LaBarbera couldn’t get any more extreme in his already deranged views on anything remotely involving sexual orientation or gender identity, he’s now demanding that doctors who perform sex reassignment surgery be thrown in jail.
