when the Family Research Council, the American Family Association (two groups mentioned in the email), and their allies (which includes Fox News “cultural reporter” Todd Starnes) complain about this letter – which they had been doing ad nauseum, they claimed that the Rich was attacking “Christian” groups or ministries. Starnes even blames Obama and says he is “religiously cleansing” the military.

In 2009 the Assemblies of God posted a video that seems to remain unacknowledged by opponents of marriage equality. The video “Performing Same Sex Marriages” features Richard Hammar, General Counsel of the Assemblies of God, assuring AOG churches that their freedom to refuse to marry same-sex couples or to provide church facilities for same-sex weddings is well-protected by the U.S. Constitution and numerous supreme court rulings.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Roman Catholic Archbishop of New York and president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, made a surprising admission during an interview this morning on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” that the church doesn’t know how to pursue it’s policy of opposing civil marriage for same-sex couples without being anti-gay.

OH LORD! This is probably the worse anti-gay video of 2013, but not because it is offensive. It’s because of how badly done it is.

I love the new homophobia. In the vein of Chik-Fil-a, bigoted establishments welcome gay dollars, but want to condemn at the same time. In New Bern, NC on December 4, Ariel and Shawnee McPhail walked into The Stingray Café, sat down and had their meal, and had this handed to them by the restaurant’s owner, Ed McGovern — after they had paid and were leaving.

Yes, it’s time again for an episode of “Might Makes Right” and “Majority Rules.” The trouble began when the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sent Superintendent Phil Howard a letter pointing out that a portrait of Jesus (on display in the public school since 1947, donated by a Christian student group) was an “egregious violation of the the First Amendment.”

As far as I am concerned, it’s always a good thing when religious right figures trot their hypocrisies out in the public square.
My only concern is that we as a community don’t take advantage of this more.
