Discrimination by Any Other Name…

I love this video about Indiana’s new Freedom of Religion/Freedom to Discriminate law:


This map of hatred in the United States – as determined by hateful language on twitter – makes it look like most of the hateful people are in the eastern US (both north and south). And maybe they are. But I think the fact that the West half of the country looks less hateful has […]

$10 Million

This ignorance and homophobia is sad: It seems that Neil Clark Warren, the Christian co-founder of eHarmony, is “tired” of the marriage equality debate and wants to move past all the talk—not to mention the discrimination lawsuits against his company—and just accept that gay people will continue to sin and there’s nothing he can do […]

I’m going to betray the usual protocol and quote a blog post in its entirety. This coming-out post by a fellow atheist – Chris Bowers at OpenLeft – has left me with a lot to say (emphasis added): Rick Warren Hates Atheists, Like Me by: Chris Bowers Fri Dec 19, 2008 at 14:18 Left-wing pressure seems to […]
