"It’s the same sort of thing that people said forty-some years ago when the Supreme Court overturned the laws of 17 states, supported by two-thirds of the population of the United States, that made it a felony to marry someone of a different race," he said.
The more I think of this bogus argument of "religious liberty" or "religious freedom," the more angry I become about how the entire debate is being conducted with no perspective. "Religious liberty" is merely a new anti-gay buzzword.
The son of a Joliet, Illinois, police officer awaiting trial for the strangulation murder of two men has filed a complaint with a Will County judge complaining about the lack of diversity in the jailhouse menu, too small towels, and overpriced...
Were it not for the hundreds killed, it would also be comical the ridiculous series of events Vladimir Putin's reckless behavior led up to this morning. For months Putin has been playing with fire, making trouble and having it work mainly to his advantage. Certainly in the context of Russian history and nationalist aspiration reclaiming the Crimea is a vast accomplishment. But the whole thing blew up in his face today in a way, and with repercussions I don't think - even with all wall to wall coverage - we can quite grasp.

Conservatives love to talk about anal sex. And talk, and talk. To the point that it might be considered sexual harassment, at least in some environments. And let's face it -- they are about as well informed about intercourse as they are about global warming. Not to mention rape. Remember Todd "legitimate rape" Akin? One brilliant right-wing researcher, Dr. Judith…
Kimberley Driscoll, the mayor of Salem, Mass., turned a torrent of angry out of state phone calls and responses from "right-leaning blogs and websites" over her decision to sever ties with an anti-LGBT discriminatory college, into a potential fundraising windfall for a local charity for LGBT youth.
TweetWe’re all guilty of not being completely accurate sometimes when we say something or tell a story. Someone tells me a story, I repeat it, and a few details get flubbed or altered. It happens. That being said, if you’re going to call out someone else (or a group of people) for not being factually accurate …
Truth Wins Out strongly urged Washington, DC officials today to reject plans to build a National Bible Museum only blocks from the National Mall.
