You mean Religions AREN’T allowed to dictate civil rights?

In case you were unaware, Mormons typically don't like gays. They hate them so much they devoted a significant portion of their resources to pushing for Prop 8, using all kinds of ridiculous fear mongering and veiled bigotry to convince people that allowing marriages between individuals of the same sex would somehow torpedo their own unions. It didn't matter to them this was a complete and utter fabrication ...

Coming out of the closet not easy for Black atheists

I've read enough articles, editorials and op-ed pieces to realize, at least superficially, that being both and atheist and black is not an easy thing.

Now, imagine the pie was much bigger, and there were millions of people who wanted a piece of ...

Chuck Norris is insane

Before he can become "President of Texas", Chuck Norris is on an anti-abortion campaign. He regularly blogs for the ultra conservative World Net Daily, and reading his posts is an exercise in both patience and a form of torture in some countries. In his latest opus, Chucky takes on health care reform, lambasting Democrats for trying to provide abortion services to women in need. He's not cool with that idea ...
