AHA Files Suit to Allow Humanist Groups in Prison

Many religious organizations are very active in prison and inmates are allowed to form prayer groups, Bible and Quran studies and the like, but humanism is not recognized for those purposes in federal prisons. The American Humanist Association has filed a lawsuit to change that.

Kissing Congressman to Run for Reelection

When the video of Rep. Vance McAllister making out with one of his staffers (both of them married to other people, unsurprisingly) surfaced, my response was “meh.” Ho hum, another Christian right, family values Republican caught cheating on his wife. Been there, seen that, pretty much on a monthly basis for years. But his handling of it afterward is pretty funny to me.

Liberty U. Hires Gay Choreographer

When they’re not ranting about how gay people are trying to destroy America, God and civilization itself, Liberty University takes a timeout from their bigotry to hire gay people as long as they have a skill that they can’t find among the righteous. You know, like choreography.

Starnes Bleats About Marriage

Todd Starnes of Fox News can almost always be counted on to offer the most hysterical and overblown perspective on any issue. In a column at Charisma News he makes some terrible arguments and unsupported claims about same-sex marriage, but he starts by displaying his inability to distinguish between TV and reality.

White Man’s March Protest Signs

After that ridiculous White Man’s March a few weeks ago, people began posting about potential protesting signs on Twitter using the hashtag #WhiteManMarchProtestSigns and the results are absolutely hilarious. A few of my favorites below the fold.

Lopez Makes Worst Anti-Equality Argument Ever

Even among the anti-gay right, Robert Oscar Lopez is a particularly bizarre voice. The only person who makes arguments that are on the same level of idiocy as him is Scott Lively. On Sandy Rios’ show this week he declared that allowing gay people to have children violates the 13th Amendment. Look at this argument:

Eric Holder Just Became My Hero

I’m not a big fan of Attorney General Eric Holder but he just became my hero. Remember a while back when Louis Gohmert, the dumbest man in Congress, accused Holder of “casting aspersions on my asparagus”? Here’s the video if you don’t remember it:

Root Claims Massive Voter Fraud

Wayne Allen Root, a birther and major conspiracy monger who was once the vice presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party, put out a video commentary a few weeks ago claiming that Obama only won in 2012 because “Democratic voters across this country are voting four times, five times, 10 times each for the Democrats.” His only support for this is the ridiculous myth about voting in Philadelphia, which has been debunked even by True the Vote, the anti-voter fraud group.

Herman Cain Lies About MLK

Herman Cain has joined with the hordes of other conservatives who are flat out lying about Martin Luther King and trying to turn him into one of them. While trying to respond to Rep. Keith Ellison’s proposed financial transaction tax, Cain said that King wasn’t into “class warfare.”

CIA Tells Interrogators ‘Waterboard Him Some More’

If you want to know just how disconnected from any sense of reality or morality the CIA became after the Bush administration ordered them to start torturing people, this article should make you cringe as it did me. John McCain recently told the National Journal that at one point interrogators reported that a detainee had been definitively broken and they were told to “waterboard him some more.”

Polish Priest Says Legos are Evil

From the same people that brought you gay Teletubbies and Disney movies that turn your kids over to Satan comes a brand new ridiculous bit of fear-mongering. A Catholic priest in Poland has declared that Legos are evil and turn kids on to “sin and occultism.”

Why Talking About Equality Matters

A new study finds that merely talking to someone about LGBT equality makes it more likely that they will change their mind on issues like same-sex marriage. And it’s even more true if the person talking to them is gay themselves, apparently.

LAPD Officers Disable Tracking Antennae

Here’s an entirely unsurprising but appalling story. LAPD officers that are assigned to inner city neighborhoods have been disabling the antennae that allow their conversations to be monitored by their superiors and to be recorded for future use in tracking their actions.

Liz Cheney: Torture is Vital!

Dick Cheney is seemingly quite proud of his role in making the United States violate its treaty obligations (a treaty pushed through by conservative hero Ronald Reagan, I might add) and so is his daughter. Responding to criticism in the wake of the vote to release part of the famous torture report, Liz Cheney goes full-on fearmonger:
