Christian Persecution?

Ever since the issue of marriage equality popped up on the national radar, conservative Christians have been worried about being “persecuted for their beliefs” (and by “persecuted for their beliefs”, I mean “not allowed to shit on gay people anymore”). We’ve heard about bakers getting in trouble for refusing to make cakes for “gay” weddings, fears […]

I’m A Little Disappointed

So, it’s been two whole weeks since the nation was told it’s facing a disaster of biblical proportions and what’s happened? Nothing. Not a damn thing. No fire and brimstone coming down from the skies. No rivers and seas boiling. We haven’t begun forty years of darkness and there have been no earthquakes or volcanoes. The dead aren’t rising […]

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Geez, it seems like no matter where I look these days, there’s god-damned rainbow staring me in the face. It’s all over Facebook and there are pictures of that damned flag everywhere. Hell, I’ve even seen a couple in real life. And, that this is happening as the Confederate flag is coming down makes things […]

Well played, Arkansas. Well played.

This past weekend, the League of the South’s Arkansas chapter  celebrated America’s birthday with a rally in support of “traditional marriage” and, get this, the Confederate flag. I’ll pause here for a minute to the deliciousness of that irony sink in…, is that not awesome? Of course, it’s easy for me to revel in this amazing display […]

40 Freaking Questions?!?

Right now, the conservative response to the SCOTUS ruling on marriage has me feeling a bit like Michael Corleone in “The Godfather III”: I mean, seriously, this marriage thing is settled and I’m more than ready to move on. But, every time I think I can, some holier-than-thou dickweed crops up and I cannot keep from […]

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 […]

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, […]

What Freedoms Are You Restoring?

So, last week, Indiana governor Mike Pence signed the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoraion Act into law. This piece of legislation isn’t a one-off thing particular to Indiana, though; there are similar bills pending across the country, including my own state of North Carolina. Supporters claim the laws aren’t meant to discriminate against people who are LGBTQ, […]

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 […]

I’m Going To Hell

I’ve been in the blogging game for a few years now and, if I’ve learned nothing else, it’s that every now and then, the internet gives you a present. Wednesday afternoon, I got just such a gift in the form of a video from Olugbenga Oladejo, a Nigerian preacher (calling this cat a pastor is a […]
