By: Sunday July 15, 2012 7:00 pm

We’ve seen epic denials from pols that are hall-of-fame worthy when they are caught in a sex scandal with someone of the same sex — think Larry ” I never have been gay Craig , or Bob “black gay panic” Allen come to mind — but we’ve got a real winner today.

By: Wednesday May 23, 2012 6:18 pm

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that Providence Road Baptist Church’s flock is now coming forward to defend its spiritual leader. Charles Worley’s “final solution” — a concentration camp for gays with its goal of extinction — is popular with some of his followers.

Colorado Tax Dollars at Work: Two Senators Deliver Fundie Eruptions Against Civil Union Bill

By: Friday April 27, 2012 6:55 am
