Evangelical Right Behind HHS’s New ‘Conscience and Religious Freedom Division’ (Video)

“Religious freedom.” It doesn’t sound so bad, does it? Who would be opposed to it? In fact, the First Amendment makes it clear we have a tacit freedom of religion when its states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” There’s a reason it’s the first […]

Republican Newspaper SLAMS Trump, Calls Him ‘Unfit To Serve’ (TWEET)

One of the most striking anecdotes of the 2016 presidential campaign was the large number of ancestrally Republican newspapers who refused to endorse Donald Trump. In many cases, they broke decades-long traditions to either endorse Hillary Clinton or refuse to endorse anyone at all. The Houston Chronicle, for instance, made Hillary only the third Democrat […]

Trump’s College Newspaper Just Endorsed Hillary Clinton, SLAMMED Trump’s Lack Of ‘Dignity’ (VIDEO)

It’s been a rough month for Donald Trump. First the Republican presidential candidate’s own party abandoned him, and now his alma mater’s college newspaper is, too.

The two college newspapers are run by students of the […]

Asexuality: I Just Don’t Want Your Genitalia Near Me, OK?

Asexuality: I Just Don’t Want Your Genitalia Near Me, OK?

Asexuality, like other sexual minorities within the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, is commonly seen as baffling to those even within the queer community. According to an asexuality expert, Anthony F. Boegart, only one percent of the population is asexual. Now with a number that small, and a visibility that’s even smaller, it isn’t shocking that misconceptions about asexuality are flying all about. […]

The GOP Has A Gigantic Problem In 2016, And Its Name Is Donald Trump

One thing became painfully clear for the Republican Party at last night’s inaugural debate in Cleveland: They are facing a gigantic obstacle to any success in 2016, and that obstacle takes the form of one Donald John Trump. Despite doing his boorish best to talk himself right out of relevance, I am personally betting that […]

Scott Walker…Yeah, He Isn’t Gonna Be President, Either, And Here’s Why

So Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is going to announce his formal entrance into the 2016 race for the GOP nomination on Monday. Some pundits will tell you that he has the best chance of possibly snatching the nomination away from presumptive frontrunner Jeb Bush. But I ain’t buying all the snake oil that’s being sold […]

One Nation Under The Gun, Divisible, With Mourning And Pain For All

One Nation Under The Gun, Divisible, With Mourning And Pain For All

Before I went to bed last night, the news broke: Someone had opened fire at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, and several people had been shot. I shook my head, turned off the TV, and went to bed. How sad it is that in this nation we have become so overwhelmed with news of […]

Indianapolis Star To Mike Pence On Religious Freedom Law: ‘FIX THIS NOW’

Indianapolis Star To Mike Pence On Religious Freedom Law: ‘FIX THIS NOW’

Earlier today, Indiana governor Mike Pence hastily called for the state legislature to pass a law clarifying that his state’s universally pilloried Religious Freedom Restoration Act does not give carte blanche to discriminate against anyone–including gays and lesbians–on religious grounds. This came almost exactly 48 hours after he steadfastly vowed on national television that no […]
