Huge Win for Equality as Colorado High Court Rules Against Anti-LGBT Discrimination

Decades ago, during the civil rights era, this country determined that discrimination is illegal and unconstitutional. Even when some tried to argue that segregation and interracial marriage violated religious beliefs, the Supreme Court was having none of that. A person or business simply citing “it’s against my religion” to try to discriminate against another American […]

Dear Bigoted Republicans: Mississippi’s Anti-LGBT Law is a Disgrace and Flat-Out Unconstitutional

In what’s becoming a common occurrence within many “red states,” Mississippi passed one of the most anti-LGBT laws in the country. Oops, I mean Mississippi passed one of the “strongest protections of religious freedom” in the country – if you believe that line of bullshit. Our First Amendment, which grants every American the right to freedom […]

President Obama Contemplating Severe Punishments for North Carolina Following Anti-LGBT Law

While the 2016 presidential election has dominated the news for months, there’s still a lot of non-election news going on in the country that, unfortunately, seems to be getting overlooked. Take for instance the extreme anti-LGBT law which was recently rushed through the North Carolina state legislature that essentially made it illegal for any city or […]

The Conservative Assault On Gay Marriage And LGBT Rights Isn’t Over

Earlier this year, the United States Supreme Court handed down a ruling that made gay marriage the law of the land. Despite the protests of conservative across the country, same-sex couples were finally given the same rights as everyone else to marry the consenting adult of their choice. The rights of same-sex couples became a […]

David Vitter Says Country ‘Shoved’ Same-Sex Marriage ‘Down The Throats’ Of Christians

A lot of Republicans have quietly abandoned the conservative war against marriage equality. Except for the far-right and some of the politicians who cater to them, the GOP has moved on to screaming about religious freedom while trying to further erode a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion. After the Supreme Court ruled in favor […]

Kim Davis Busted Tampering with Marriage Licenses, Could Be Heading Back to Jail

While it seems like the Kim Davis controversy might be subsiding just a bit, I wouldn’t be shocked if all hell breaks loose again soon. She’s still currently (and foolishly) trying to find some court in this country that will tell her that she’s allowed to ignore Constitutional law, and it’s still well-known that she doesn’t […]

Chris Hayes Schools Kim Davis’s Lawyer on His Client’s Religious Hypocrisy, Ignorance (Video)

Over the last few days I’ve had several debates with people who support Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis. I use the term “debate” loosely because I’m finding that those supporting her aren’t building their arguments based on our laws, the Constitution or even reality – just their own personal opinions. I write about these types […]

Tennessee Judge No Longer Granting Divorces, Blames Same-sex Marriage

Even after the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage back in June, I knew that wasn’t going to be the end of the “debate.” I figured, just like they’ve done with abortion, Republicans would stoop to absolutely ridiculous levels to continue trying to deny millions of Americans their Constitutional rights. So, while it was clearly […]

A Message To Kentucky Clerks Likely Trying To Become Rich Off Bigotry: #GoFundYourself

It’s been over two months since the Supreme Court ruled that bans on same-sex marriage were unconstitutional. Naturally, this ruling didn’t sit well with many Republicans who somehow believe religion plays a part in this country’s legal definition of marriage. These tend to be the folks who think “religious freedom” means they have the right to force […]

Kentucky Court Clerk Says He Is Willing To Die Rather Than Issue Marriage Licenses To Gay Couples

Earlier this year, Glenn Beck warned his listeners that there were at least 10,000 American pastors who were willing to die opposing marriage equality. Now a Kentucky court clerk has claimed that he’s willing to die defying the judicial system which has ordered him and other county clerks to comply with the Supreme Court’s ruling, […]
