Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

You could easily replace the word 'segregation' with 'marriage equality', and echo the same argument modern bigots are using to try and justify their homophobia. They talk of freedom from tyranny, ignoring completely the fact that it is their hatred and intolerance which creates the inequity that so characterizes tyrannies. The good news is the man in this video, George Wallace Jr., would eventually change ...

New South Wales Premier OKs inquiry into clergy abuse

Tell me if this doesn't sound like a kick ass movie: a police detective -convinced the police force has been helping clergy cover up sexual abuse- sends a letter to the premier urging him to open an investigation into the whole affair. If it wasn't actually happening in New South Wales, I'd think maybe it was a cheesy John Grisham novel. Detective Chief Inspector Peter Fox (sounds like a movie name, right?) ...

Seth MacFarlane interviewed by Bill Maher

A bit old, but it turns out I don't ever pay attention to Piers Morgan (can you blame me?), even when he's replaced by someone infinitely cooler like Bill Maher. Here he is talking abut how the Emmys suck, how he's not sure what to think abut Obama (his response is actually pretty fresh), and his upcoming "Cosmos" series that I'm still on the fence about (it's a tough sell, trying to match the awesomeness o ...

Beck wants you to become a Pilgrim

With conservatives still freaking out over the fact their president is still black, you can expect some of the nuttier flavors of the Religious Right to step up their rhetoric. Glenn Beck, straight off his prediction God had promised the White House to a Mormon, has advised his aged listeners that the world will soon end, and their only recourse is to buy plenty of farmland and guns. Inflation is coming, th ...

Maybe Pat was talking to Satan

I wonder if Pat Robertson remembers this little gem from back in January, when he claimed God told him in advance that Obama was going to lose the election...which he of course did not. If I was him, I'd just pull the same stunt Mohammed did whenever he was caught making a bullshit prediction: just blame it on the devil. He's the go-to guy for all your lame excuses: did you cheat on your wife? The devil mad ...

Maryland gets Marriage Equality

I know the big news story today is President Obama being re-elected, but I hope this bit of news doesn't get buried under all the brouhaha: it seems as though the tiny state of Maryland has legalized same-sex marriage by approving "Question 6" on the ballot. Now, before you celebrate this victory, you should know a few important details: Establishes that Maryland’s civil marriage laws allow gay and lesbian ...

Go Vote, or Else…

OK folks, this is it: after months and months of the presidential election campaign eating up valuable news real-estate, it's now time for you to exercise the limited choice you have and cast your insignificant voice into the choir of madness that is the electoral process. As you may well know, over 80% of my audience is from the US, which means I have a huge stake in this election. Already over the past 3 ...

Site Changes!

Alright, after spending the whole day free of the forums, the increased speed and reliability has nailed it: TGA forums are no more. On the plus side, it means the site is now crazy fast, and so browsing around isn't the frustrating exercise it was in the past. I'm now trying to get facebook comment integration instead, since it's what all the kids are using these days. I've also added the option for Hard-C ...

Thinking of ditching the forums

Remember when I finally succumbed to fan pressure and spent days setting up a forum for you guys? My original opposition to the idea was that the site still lacked the necessary interaction and involvement from fans to make the venture worthwhile. There's nothing more I hate in this world than an empty and dead forum, and right now, that's what we've got. With the plugins making the site more sluggish than ...

Gary Cass is a hilarious bible-nut

Here are some of my favorite ridiculous tropes: 1) Harvard University is Jesus' #1 enemy, because there's learnin' going on there. 2) America apparently elects people that like killing babies (he may be referring to abortion, but I think their ICBM's do a better job. 3) You can't be a good Christians unless you can instantly kill somebody with a gun. 4) Secular progressives have abandoned God (that's why th ...
