Hawaii’s First Assembly of God churches are so opposed to the passage of a marriage equality law during a special legislative session next month that they’re not only dedicating their main webpage to this political issue (right), they’re lying about the proposed new law’s effects on their institution.

In 1997, metal music was pretty much over–grunge had killed it. But that year, Pat Boone released In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy, his white bread covers of metal music. It was his first hit album in 35 years. It also pissed off a lot of people because metal was supposed to be the music of SATAN and Pat Boone was an evangelical with a television program on Trinity Broadcast Network, Gospel America. After an appearance wearing black leather and studs on the American Music Awards, clad in his metal garb, he was fired from Gospel America.

Times must still be tough for Nic Cage. He’s offered himself up to
God the Left Behind movie series, and it’s really kinda gross. Well, maybe there are some gross points involved, though I wouldn’t hold my breath on the Academy Award-winning actor getting rich off those.

Orson Scott Card is the homo-hatin’ author of Ender’s Game who is also a producer of and presumably profit-taker from the eponymous film due out in November from Lions Gate. He has proven himself to be an equal opportunist disliker of non-white people and a loony-toon nutter in this May 9, 2013 essay, originally published in something called The Rhinoceros Times. Card spins a paranoid (admitted) fantasy about Obama becoming a dictator.

One thing to learn about religious right organizations and their supporters is that they always repeat a lie no matter how many times it has been refuted. In fact, they even apply the lie to new situations.

Have you ever heard someone say something so dumb, so stupid that the only thing you have to do in order to refute it is to just play the comment back? Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver on how marriage equality will lead to a “revolution.”

How and why evangelicals persist, what motivates their zealotry and what they would do with power if they got it—these are the “What-ifs” Frederic C. Rich asks through his characters and a counterfactual storyline that takes readers from a key historical tipping point—the election and subsequent death of John McCain in 2008—through plausible plot twists and fictional conflicts that remain deeply rooted in the very real people, politics and ideologies that even today are significant forces in American life.

everal religious right groups have signed a statement of resistance should the Supreme Court rule in favor of marriage equality. But if you ask me, I have no idea what the hell they are threatening to do.

Apparently the religious right are upset to the point of insane distraction by the fact that NBA player Jason Collins came out of the closet. While the lgbt community, while still celebrating Collins’ decision to be open about his life, have pretty much moved to other matters, the religious right continue to castigate Collins.
