The Unintended Hilarity of the Anti-Gay Movement

George Weigel, who is apparently a “Distinguished Senior Fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center” has written a terrible article about marriage. His mistakes are pretty revealing, and I’ll write more about them later. For now I just want to point out one hilarious bit.

Weigel’s rehashing the idea that marriage predates government, so no […]

Have a lovely weekend.

NOM Bears False Witness

Just a quick one today. NOM reports that:

In Minnesota, the people’s continued success in fighting for marriage is provoking some among the opposition to vandalize churches. Yes, sad—but true, as the media reports: “Police are searching for the person responsible for vandalizing multiple churches in Buffalo, Minn., over the weekend.”

That link leads to a story about […]

NOM Bashes Christians and People of Faith

I’m starting to think you could make a full-time job out of shredding the National Organization for Marriage’s fundraising appeals. Here’s the latest email gem from President Brian Brown:

“Repressive.” “Anti-human being.” “Anti-gay.” “Anti-woman.” “Anti-children.”

Does this sound like tolerance to you?

Well, these aren’t my words. They belong to Randy [sic] Weingarten, an Obama surrogate, homosexual marriage […]

Jack Nicklaus: Great Golfer, Poor Political Analyst

Jack Nicklaus has endorsed Romney:

“When I was competing, I didn’t lean on someone else in tough times,” Nicklaus said, comparing his golfing career to the government. “I know what I had to do on the golf course to succeed, and when I won I certainly didn’t apologize for my success.”

Not exactly true. He attended Ohio […]

Signers Withdraw from Manhattan Declaration: It's not Intolerant Enough!

Oh, the irony.

Remember the Manhattan Declaration, where co-signers vow to break any law requiring them to treat “immoral sexual partnerships” as if they were equivalent to marriage? It’s in a spot of trouble now, according to its Facebook moderator:

This morning I’m returning phone calls to some who wish to have their name removed from the […]

I Tolerate You So Much, You Need to Shut Up and Hide!

I’ve been blogging a few years now and it’s been a long time since I read something that made me as angry as what I read last night.

Jeremy Hooper of Good As You points us to a piece by Anthony Esolen, Professor of English at Providence College. He’s writing in a Witherspoon publication — the […]

Romney's 47%...and me.

For the Record

For the record, I endorse Barack Obama. Also, for the record:

I paid 16.0% of my income in federal income tax.
Plus another 5.8% in state income tax.
Plus another 7.3% in property tax.
Plus another 5.1% in Social Security and Medicare taxes.

So Mitt Romney, for the record, how much more personal responsibility do you want this […]

This Time, in a Picture

My previous blog post, now in graphic form.

Mitt Romney's Self-Destroying Defense

Mitt Romney just explained with perfect clarity why no one in this country — liberal or conservative — should vote for him.

Mitt and his allies are trying to spin his 47% quote, even turn it into a plus. This is the time, they say, for Romney to double down, embrace the quote, start a conversation […]
