States like Colorado and Washington get the most headlines lately when it comes to the legalization of marijuana, and rightfully so. They became the first two states in the United States to legalize the … [Read More...]
I often comment about how hypocritical Republicans are when it comes to our Constitution. They're usually the first to stand on a pedestal and speak about the importance of "Constitutional values," yet they … [Read More...]
It's amazing to me how in 2014 we still have an entire political party that treats science, math and reality as subjective. As if proven statistical data, indisputable reality or widely accepted science are … [Read More...]
It's pretty much a guarantee that if President Obama does anything, Republicans are going to whine and complain. He can't even take a vacation without conservatives throwing a fit about the fact that he's not … [Read More...]
Ask most servers and they'll tell you, Sunday morning is one of the worst shifts of the week to work - if not the worst. It's busy, people are rude, impatient and tip lousy. Which is ironic considering that … [Read More...]
It's no secret that I'm not a fan of either Rand Paul or Ted Cruz. In fact, I can't stand either one of them. Though I have much more disdain toward Cruz than I do Paul (maybe it's a Texas thing).
That … [Read More...]
I think Ted Cruz needs to face the harsh reality that practically nobody likes him. He's spent his entire first year in the United States Senate basically pandering to the tea party. It's pretty clear that … [Read More...]
State Rep. Katrina Jackson recently filed HB 388 which has the title of “The Unsafe Abortion Protection Act.” As originally reported by my friend Lamar White who blogs over at cenlamar.com, this anti-choice … [Read More...]

Pastor Pillow here!
A FUNDAMENTALIST DEATH STAR HAS EXPLODED!
Let us rejoice.
Please turn in your hymnals to No. 42.

Most of our religio-political … [Read More...]
Many Christians have a hard time understanding that one can be both a Christian and be gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and/or queer. But it happens. I go to a church where roughly half of the members and … [Read More...]
While there are many ways to manipulate people, religion seems to be the tool most often used to control large masses of people. After all, isn't that why we have "organized religion" in the first place? … [Read More...]
As a liberal political writer and commentator, I've encountered a countless number of right-wing Republicans (often tea party Republicans) who love nothing more than to tell me what a complete idiot I am and … [Read More...]
Bashing President Obama is nothing new for Republicans. Heck, it's been their main political strategy since he was elected in 2008. Their blatant opposition to anything and everything he supports is so … [Read More...]
I've never quite understood why anyone would brag about being a conservative. To me, being a conservative means you're afraid of change, you oppose that which is different and you resist progress. These … [Read More...]
While Arizona made headlines with its anti-LGBT bill that was passed by the state legislature (but ultimately vetoed by Governor Brewer) several other states have proposed similar types of … [Read More...]
