Search results for "gay rights"

Yeah, I can’t believe this crowd either

Change, even the important kind, takes time. It isn't easy for people to change their minds, especially when they've been told their whole life that [insert minority here] are evil, wicked, bad, or acting against the will of whatever imaginary friend they have. Afew weeks ago, New York joined the growing list of States that now allow gay couples the same rights as everyone else, and so the "National Organiz ...

Bigot Historian has something stupid to say

If you've ever hated your history professor and wondered if the crusty old bastard had any real understanding of how historical facts are uncovered, you can imagine the pain of having Professor Roberto De Matti as a teacher: A professor is facing calls to resign after blaming the collapse of the Roman Empire on homosexuality. Roberto De Mattei, a devout Roman Catholic, had already raised eyebrows by saying ...

Vatican upset over being called out on their shit

When you hear the words "disturbing trend", do you think of society's growing acceptance of same sex unions? If you do, then odds are you're being ostracized by friends and family members who feel embarrassed by your outdated views. A number of us have moved beyond the Bronze Age and recognize homosexuality as a development of evolution, the same way your eyeballs and fingernails are. A gay person can no mo ...

The price of free speech

Whenever I hear some stupid rhetoric about soldiers dying in a foreign land for our "freedom", I'm reminded that we really aren't accustomed to the kind of actual sacrifices we have to make to maintain our liberties. In truth, freedom isn't about the kind of conflicts that involve bombs and bullets: it's about the right to say what you want, even when it happens to be horribly offensive. The Supreme Count r ...

Catholic School Board Chair compares LGBT group to Nazis

I'm exhausted with all the crazy bigotry and homophobia coming out of every conceivable Catholic institution. They simply refuse to accept the fact some human beings have a sexual attraction to members of the same gender. Of course, they all deny their obvious homophobia and assume it's society that has the problem, not them. Clearly, these aren't the kind of folks who are accustomed to accepting objective ...

James Dobson is a crazy old man

When you think of today's Republican party, what's the first thing that comes to mind? Some might say "less government regulation", or "opposition to homosexuality". One thing is for sure: few will deny the powerful collusion of the religious right in the policies and decisions the party makes. They know how important that base is, and they cater to it. In fact, if you want a perfect example of this, look n ...

Humanism has balls

Here's an ad campaign I can really get behind: the American Humanist Association is launching a huge campaign called "Consider Humanism". It's the largest atheist campaign so far, but keep in mind the total money raised so far is about 200,000 bucks. That's less than 10% of what the LDS church rounded up in order to prevent gays from having the same rights as other citizens. We still seem small fry compared ...

Iowa voters prove homophobia still as strong as ever

Election day is over, and the people have spoken! They came together to ensure the "sanctity of marriage" would be upheld, and did so by removing 3 high court justices who helped legalize same sex marriage. Can you take a guess as to the name of the organization which spent millions of dollars convincing voters not to re-elect these Supreme Court justices? Why, it's Iowa for Freedom, of course, because you ...

American Family Association Boycotts “Homo Depot”

If you're planning on renovating your home and wonder where to buy your lumber, I recommend that you might give Home Depot a try. Why? Well, the company has a very pro-gay attitude, so much so that the American Family Association has pledged to boycott them, "Homo-Depot". Never heard of these guys? Here's a short description from their website: The AFA is a non-profit organization that advocates traditional ...

It’s not the Catholic Church that’s full of pedophiles: it’s society!

Typically if you get caught with your hand in the cookie jar (a rather generous metaphor considering these pederast pieces of shit were raping kids), it's not a good idea to blame someone else for your crime. Not only does it give everyone the impression you are incapable of admitting to your guilt; it totally undermines people's future trust in you. That's why I find the continued denial of the Church rega ...
