You’re Making The Rest Of Us Look Bad

Between the craziness about the flag and the way conservative Christians have lost their fucking minds over the Court’s ruling on marriage, it’s an interesting time to be a progressive blogger with a snarky, sarcastic side. We’ve all seen the crap coming from Tony Perkins, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum and a host of others.  But, the […]

I Hate The Supreme Court

So, this morning, I was working on a piece about some bat-shit craziness involving celebrity Christians and same-sex marriage. It was coming along really well and I thought, “Oh, this is going to be good.” Just as I was hitting my sarcastic stride, my social media feed began lighting up with news that the Supreme […]

Franklin Graham Is A Knob

I hate to say it and I know it’s not very nice, but what else can you call someone whose organization is running a campaign to raise funds for maternal and child healthcare, but simultaneously gets his nose out of joint because a Wells Fargo commercial featuring two lesbian moms who want to adopt a […]

What Would Jesus Do?

As the American public’s acceptance of people who are LGBTQ grows, social conservatives have started to freak out a little bit; and, by “freak out a little bit”, I mean, “totally lose their shit”. Several states have either passed “religious freedom” laws or have one being debated in their legislatures. The most famous is Indiana’s, […]

The Poor Will Always Be With Us

The meme to your left has been making the rounds on the internet, lately. Quite a few progressive people, myself included, were quick to share it. As memes go, it’s not bad. Well, except for one thing: Franks never actually said that. It  comes from the Facebook group Stop The World, The Teabaggers Want Off, whose stock in trade […]

You’re Going To Be Disappointed

For those of you who don’t already know, I volunteer at Love Wins Ministries, “a ministry of presence and pastoral care for the homeless and at-risk population of Raleigh, NC.” It’s something I’ve wanted to do since I first met Hugh at The Morning Times coffee shop in downtown Raleigh (his “office” at the time) five […]

Here We Go Again

The Supreme Court will be deciding the fate of same-sex marriage this session and  the protesters are out in force. From both sides, of course, but I thought I’d take a look at some of the arguments of the folks on the anti- side by checking out their signs. I would say they’re full of shit, […]

Russell And Bruce

Just so you know, Diana and I are on one of semi-annual trips to God’s Waiting Room (aka Florida) and, as usual, I’m loving it. Does that mean you might see a bunch of shit about how this place inspires me, how I always get a huge creative lift out of being here, how magnificent things are, […]

Iceman Is Gay And Franklin Graham Isn’t Happy

That’s right, boys and girls; classic X-Men member Iceman (aka Bobby Drake) has come out as gay and Franklin Graham is pissed. He took to Facebook to let us about this latest outrage from “the gays,” posting:           Really? With all that’s going on in the world,  who has time to […]

Well, Isn’t That Special?

I’m a little sad this morning. Yesterday afternoon, I thought I had found the perfect subject for today’s blog post: an article claiming that Creflo Dollar said Pokemon made kids gay. Unfortunately, a little research showed this piece to be questionable; maybe even bullshit. Here’s the link so you can judge for yourself.  Now, as much […]
