National Organization For Marriage president Brian Brown posted a Memorial Day message, complete with pictures of fallen soldiers' tombstones. Too bad it's all about defeating marriage equality, nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people, and Hillary Clinton: We live in a challenging... Continue reading

A lesbian couple in Canada went to a jeweler to purchase a pair of wedding rings. After a pleasant transaction, the couple put down a deposit and the jeweler began work on the rings. A short time later, a friend... Continue reading

Tony Perkins gets paid, and handily, to scare people into believing that LGBT people are terrible and that our rights are some sort of homegrown nuclear bomb. He drums up fear and people give FRC money. Fiscal goals are met,... Continue reading

As someone who has written about Family Research Council Action Executive Director Josh Duggar and the way he has used his TV fame to subjugate the rights of LGBT people (among others), I feel like I have to say something... Continue reading

At this point, the so-called Family Leadership Summit has one national sponsor: the National Organization For Marriage. And of course since the Gran Old Party can't break its (self-defeating) obsession with stopping gay people from getting married, no fewer than... Continue reading

Yesterday I told you about some of the extreme speakers who Sen. Ted Cruz is joining/courting at this week's "Watchmen on the Wall conference. Here now, a pertinent part of his speech to the Family Research Council crowd: [RWW] I... Continue reading

From the Family Research Council's latest round of prayer targets: [FRC] Whoever at FRC wrote "spewing upon our nation" in a post about Savage was clearly trolling his or her employer. Continue reading

Flip Benham refers to gay rights as "the Devil's agenda": Kenyn Cureton believes that gay people are "poor, deluded souls" who are "simply pawns in the hands of their malevolent master" (i.e. the Devil): "Who do you think is ultimately... Continue reading

Out magazine has long been known as a magazine more focused on the pop culture side of the LGBT world than the political one. Yet in a post on Out.com (which might be running in the print edition too; I'm... Continue reading

The bill has only a dozen or so Democratic co-sponsors, and he's introducing it into a GOP-controlled Congress. But good on the congressman for trying to drain the dangerous snake oil, even if gravity's working against him: WASHINGTON — On... Continue reading

I get the sense that Chuck doesn't know how any of this works: President Obama's a plaintiff, apparently? And he's going to shut down churches? But he won't touch imams? Sure, Chuck. Just be sure to warn up before the... Continue reading

When a lack of credible legal arguments meet the mutant strain of hubris that so often undercuts evangelical Christianity, the result is fruitless tweeting your version of the-fear-of-God at SCOTUS justices: [@Franklin_Graham] And if they don't do as they say,... Continue reading

What does Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg do in response to the anti-gay groups (e.g. NOM, the American Family Association, Family Research Council) who tried to force her to recuse herself from the recent marriage cases simple because she... Continue reading

Forget the more moderate Jeb Bush we heard earlier this year. So similar to his brother, but even worse. Whereas George was at least acting in a nation where the idea of marriage equality was both more theoretical and controversial,... Continue reading

Bryan Fischer's rhetoric is that of an extremist. That is not news. Fischer is one of those whose voice is so over-the-top that it either no longer factors in the political discussion, or it unwittingly helps us when it manages... Continue reading

I actually kind of admire how Stuart Shepard tries to think outside the box to address his concerns in a new and creative way. Sadly, when he steps outside that box, he typically steps into an ugly pile of manure... Continue reading
