Christian Action League supports bullying of gays

When I was in elementary school, I was bullied by a giant idiot named Clay. Clay had failed a few times, and as such, he was significantly bigger than everyone else in the same grade (he was roughly twice as big as I was). His obvious stupidity and lack of brain power made him detest anyone who appeared intelligent or interested in school. His favorite tactic was to hold kids upside down and shake them unti ...

Iraqi militia torturing and killing gays

It's bad enough the situation is Iraq is a mess; now we have to deal with the knowledge the Iraqi military is engaging in some sick and twisted tactics to torture and kill homosexuals in the country: “A prominent Iraqi human rights activist says that Iraqi militia have deployed a painful form of torture against homosexuals by closing their anuses using ‘Iranian gum.’ …Yina Mohammad told Alarabiya.net that, ...

How the US really feels about gays

Signing a UN declaration is roughly as binding as your New Years resolution. Still, they are symbolic representations, somewhat like a lofty resolution, indicating an important issue which needs attention. It's why I'm appalled the US failed to sign a UN declaration aiming at decriminalizing homosexuality. Of course, I'm not entirely surprised, since the government seems to have no regard for civil libertie ...

Florida judge rules against gay adoption ban

The headline would have been more effective as "finally, someone from Florida shows common sense", but the joke had to be sacrificed for the importance of this ruling. The Miami Judge found there was no rational basis for denying adoption rights to gays, and in the light of the tough times the homosexual community has endured, it's good to see positive news for once. There's undoubtedly going to be legal sa ...

Arkansas gays lose battle to keep adopted children

Many of you might be wondering why, in the past few days,. I've been writing as much as I have on gay rights. Although it's true the site is primarily about atheism, my reaction to the blatant and shocking disregard for this minority obliges me to write on their behalf. Unbeknownst to most of us, the election was not only about voting in a new president. It was also an opportunity for conservative groups in ...

The “Homosexual Agenda” is an immoral iceberg…

Actually, the odds of the Titanic hitting that iceberg were astronomically small; as it turns out, it was a series of poor decisions by the crew that led to the disaster. Had the ship actually crashed head on into the iceberg, it would have survived the impact. Ironically, it was their attempt to navigate around it that ultimately led to the ship sinking. So, if I can use their stupid metaphor against them ...

Jamie Kilstein says it like it is

I think I'm a little jealous of this guy's rant. I doubt the issue of gay rights can be summed up more succinctly than that, and the fact that someone else is being very funny feels extremely threatening to me. Nah, I'm just fucking around. I like this guy. Here's hoping I can find more interesting videos of this dude. ...

77 reasons to support bigotry

The Friendly Atheist has an interesting article written by two fans who recently attended a "Marriage Symposium" organized by the Illinois Family Institute and Patriots United (any time an organization has the words "Family" or "Patriot" in it, you know something racist/homophobic/ultra-conservative is going on). One of the pieces of literature at the event that intrigued me was the pamphlet entitled "77 No ...

Trading hatred for love

Homophobic crime is on the rise in England, and as you might have already guessed, the culprits are hiding behind a veil of religion to justify their bigotry. The backlash is due to the growing recognition of gay rights, both to marry and adopt, and this has prompted groups motivated by improvable dogma to retaliate. One unidentified group is putting up stickers that say "gay free zone" along with a quote f ...

Ted Olson schools Chris Wallace

It doesn't get simpler than that, does it folks? Gay marriage isn't about creating new laws; it's about upholding the Constitution, and granting the same rights to every citizen in the Republic. Christian Evangelicals and Catholics like to dance around the fact this segment of society is still second class citizens. They try to play on our prejudices, but this tactic will ultimately fail, and splinter their ...
