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 Battle Of The Cup

Apparently, this is what a “war on Christmas” looks like. I had originally planned to start this piece by telling you that the conservative’s “War on Christmas” has started early this year, thanks to Starbucks’ new minimalist holiday cup design. Unless you live under a rock, however, you already know that because “The Battle Of The […]

An Open Letter To Parents Of Transgender Kids

Dear Conservative Christian Parents of kids who are transgender; You probably don’t know me, but I know you. I’ve been where you are and I know what you’re going through, right now. Well, not exactly; while I have been a Christian most of my life, I’ve never really been a conservative one. But, I am the […]

Josh Duggar Gets His

And, I Couldn’t Be Happier Like most of you, my social media feed has been filled with stories, articles, op-eds, etc. about the Josh Duggar scandal. Interestingly, almost every one has been posted by my progressive friends; the conservatives I know have been remarkably silent on the matter. Well, maybe not “remarkably”; most likely, they […]

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 […]

But, I Don’t Want To!

Every so often, we hear of a conservative celebrity making not-so-flattering statements about LGBTQ issues, sort of like Mike Huckabee did recently. The latest entrant in the “How Much Of My Foot Can I Fit In My Mouth” sweepstakes, Huckabee declared that forcing Christians to accept same-sex marriage is akin to telling Jews they have to […]

Maybe I Should Do This More Often

Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States released the list of cases they have chosen to hear this session. Noticeably absent from that list were the circuit court rulings on same-sex marriage that were on appeal. While the absence of something isn’t normally that big a deal, this case is a little different. It’s a […]

My Story Pt IV

Those of you who have stuck with the long slog through my life are in luck: today is the 4th and final installment in this tale. And, the pay-off for all your hard work is a relatively happy ending. So, let’s get to it. Yesterday, I ended with this tidbit: “At the time, my oldest […]

The Cult Of The Manly Man

Last month, The New Yorker ran a piece by Adam Gopnik titled No More Mr. Tough Guy. It addressed the public perception (and by “public”, I mean conservative bloggers and pundits) that President Obama is a wimp, a weak sister, an effeminate girly-man. Of course, supporters (and liberal/progressive critics) of the President will say it isn’t so, […]

God Hates Yoga Pants?

Recently, David Hayward (aka nakedpastor) published a cartoon about God and yoga pants. Now, you may not be aware of this (I know I wasn’t), but yoga pants are a big issue in evangelical circles. Why is that? Because yoga pants are “revealing” and “very attractive to men”. This is a problem because, apparently, men […]
