The Nashville Statement and the Progressive Response

Recently, the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood released something called “The Nashville Statement“. I suspect normal folks are blissfully unaware of this development. Those of us with any kind of connection to progressive theological circles? We aren’t so lucky. That’s folks in those progressive theological circles have lost their fucking minds about the Nashville […]

Be Sure To Get Your Lesbian Abortion Cookies

Well, friends, it’s that time of year again. It seems that, yet again, conservative Christians have their knickers in a twist over Girl Scout cookies. Yesterday, Franklin Graham took to Facebook to let us know that he’s not buying any this year, because these tasty treats raise funds for the Girl Scouts’ secular humanist, America-wrecking agenda. […]

Don’t Do It, Charlotte? Too Late, They Done Did It

So, the Charlotte city council recently voted to allow transgenders to use whatever bathroom they damn well please. Well, beloved, if you need a sign of the moral degeneration currently taking place in the United States, here it is. I mean, we’re seriously going to let men use women’s bathrooms just because they claim to “feel […]

Linda Harvey Can’t Find Anywhere To Shop

You may not know this, but being a homophobic asshole is not without its pitfalls. Don’t think so? Just ask anti-LGBT activist Linda Harvey. PinkNews reports that Ms. Harvey is having a hard time finding places to shop because almost no major businesses oppose LGBTQ equality anymore. Or, in Linda’s words: “For any Christian who wants […]

Franklin Graham Does It Again.

In the past, I’ve referred to Franklin Graham and his colleagues as the gift that keeps on giving. But, honestly, this is one gift I could do without. So, what has uber-knob political activist Reverend Franklin Graham done to warrant my attention this time? Well, he’s on his soapbox about Charlotte’s proposed non-discrimination ordinance.  Again […]

Remembering History: The Greensboro Sit-ins

I wrote the first version of this post three years ago. Since this is the anniversary of the Greensboro Sit-ins, I thought this would a good time to dust it off and give you an updated version. Enjoy. 57 years ago today, four college students walked in and sat down at the Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, N. […]

Double Standards Abound

For the past few days, the internet has been abuzz with news about the militia stand-off in Burns, Oregon. From what I can see, it’s mostly progressive people perpetuating this chatter; my conservative friends are generally silent on the matter. The media hasn’t been much help, either. Much of their coverage has followed along the lines of […]

Sarah Silverman: Jesus Was Gender-fluid

Sarah Silverman is no stranger to controversy. Over the course of her career, the comedian has caught flack for using a racial slur, tweeting snarky rape prevention tips and more. This past Christmas Day, she did it again with this tweet: Like clockwork, conservatives took the internet to voice their displeasure by calling her a […]

The National Religious Liberties(?) Conference

These days, it seems like bat shit crazy is everywhere you look. Between Ben Carson’s notion that Joseph (you know, from the Bible?) built the pyramids to serve as grain silos, people getting their shorts in a knot over a god damn paper cup and the mere fact that human hair ball Donald Trump is […]

Much Ado About Nothing?

On Monday, I weighed in on the Starbucks holiday cup controversy that, it turns out, isn’t all that controversial. At least, that’s what some folks are trying to say. Conservatives are claiming that no one is upset about Starbucks decision to go with an unadorned red cup this holiday season in place of the more […]
