There’s Santorum On Your Radio (Ew, Gross!)


That frothy mix of lube and fecal matter Rick Santorum believes that The Youte of Today would be down with hating on the ‘mos, if the Lavender Menace hadn’t silenced the Church:

“The arguments are being won among young people. We are losing in this particular area among young people not because we’re out there and competing, it’s because they have effectively silenced the church on a lot of those issues and young people don’t even know what the opposing view is on these issues.”

It Must Run In Their Family

David Limbaugh, the baby brother of the blog’s old pal Junkie Limbaugh appears from time to time writing op-ed pieces that are just as tightly, intellectually cohesive as his blighted older brother’s rants. We assume that Rush got the looks in the family (shudder) and thus the media platform, and David is as good looking as his work is honest.

Case in point, David wrote a piece for World Nut Daily: Criminalizing Christian behavior: It’s here, which is of course an essay about Marriage Equality and the jack-booted gay thugs who are forcing Y’all Qaeda to marry the ‘mos, even though it makes Baby Jeebus weep:

It seems that with each passing month, this senseless tyranny advances. The latest is that two Christian ministers in Idaho, Donald and Evelyn Knapp, have allegedly been ordered to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies at their chapel or face fines or jail sentences.

Now it seems that the Knapps are both ministers (of some sort) and they run a for-profit place to be married across the street from the place where one goes to get a marriage license in Idaho. They call their place, The Hitching Post LLC, a chapel, but they do not call it a church. Presumably, they do not have a congregation, and they do not have the tax-exempt status of a church either. David doesn’t tell us.

Being good Xristians, they won’t let the ‘mos marry at their place, The Hitching Post LLC, and damn the luck, their for-profit bidness, The Hitching Post LLC, has to comply with the public accommodation laws of Idaho. Take it away, David!

According to a lawsuit filed by the Knapps, the city of Coeur d’Alene is “unconstitutionally coercing” them to perform these weddings at their Hitching Post Wedding Chapel in violation of their religious beliefs, their ordination vows and their consciences. City Ordinance Section 9.56 bars sexual orientation discrimination in public accommodations, which forces the Knapps to choose between betraying their religious convictions and following them and facing up to 180 days in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. According to their complaint, they arguably commit a separate and distinct misdemeanor each day they refuse to perform such ceremonies, with the potential criminal penalties piling up cumulatively.

Just like they would be in trouble if they refused their services to wed anyone else.

When the Pharisees asked Jesus whether it is lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause, he replied, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?” (Matthew 19:4-5). Jesus was quoting Genesis 1:27, lest there be any confusion that there is conflict between the testaments.

The point isn’t whether you or I believe this, though I do. It’s whether the Knapps believe it – and they do.

No, David, the point isn’t what is in their hearts, the point is what is in the law. I’ve met some racists in my time; they believe that they are right too, deep in their hearts.

Their attorneys’ complaint clearly states that they “are ordained Christian ministers who believe biblical marriage is good for society. Not only have they been happily married for 47 years, they have married roughly 35,000 couples and seen countless lives blessed through marriage. As ordained ministers, the Knapps believe God called them to promote the welfare of their community by uniting others in marriage. … Because their religious beliefs affect everything they do, the Knapps and Hitching Post, LLC only perform wedding ceremonies consistent with their religious beliefs.”

All of that is nice, David, but what about the law? Are they obeying it, yes or no?

Notice who the aggressors are here. Notice who is being intolerant. Why can’t same-sex couples who want to marry under the newly minted law find ministers who have no objection to the procedure? Are they seeking the vindication of their rights or trying to force their beliefs on other people to the point of compelling them to deny their own?

And why can’t people who have a business license obey the law? If we are talking hypothetical situations now, what if the Knapps turned down black couples, or Jews? What if the Jewish Deli down the street refused to sell their wares to goyim like you, David? Would you continue on down the street to deli after deli to get your bagel?

Some Stupid For Your Afternoon Tea?


“There was never a cow going around slobbering on another cow, sending a signal that I’m in love with this cow,” he said. “And when the bull got in the pasture, we didn’t have to give them a course in bullology or cowology. They had an inborn nature, they knew exactly and precisely what they needed to do to make sure that the Baity family had cows 20 years from now.”

–Berean Baptist Church Pastor Pastor Ron Baity, comparing LGBT people to cows.

The Stupid… It BURNS!!!!

On the bright side, you’ll never hear, “Not tonight honey.”

Caterers in 30+ States Rejoice…


…as the SCOTUS declined to take up Marriage Equality cases for this term, leaving lower court rulings intact. This means that now 30 states and D.C. will let people marry whomever they love.

This does not, however, nationalize marriage equality, but surely that day is coming. (I know, quit calling you Shirley…)

Want Fries With Your Stupid?

Yet in today’s upside-down world it is we who are disingenuously accused of “hate” – those of us who remain compassionate and bold enough to warn our fellow fallen human beings of the spiritual, emotional and, yes, even the physical death that comes as a natural consequence of unnatural behaviors. A toxic cloud of political correctness distorts reality, choking off any honest appraisal of these self-destructive sexual behaviors. We truly live in a dark age that calls evil good and good evil… The wages of sin is death.

I’m honored to say that I’m one of those “haters” called by God to sound the alarm… When God calls you to be an instrument of His truth, the biblical harmonies you play will often strike sour with those in rebellion against Him, sending them into blind rage and deep denial.

Matt Barber, the man who thinks about hot, sweaty man-on-man sex with thighs like pistons that can pump all night. He’s too modest. It’s good to know that he thinks he is an instrument of God’s divine retribution against the ‘mos.

The Morning Quote

The Connexion reports:

[Former President of France] Mr Sarkozy accused the [French] socialist government of “humiliating families and humiliating people who love the family” by introducing the legislation allowing same-sex marriage, though he said getting rid of the law was not a priority when so many were jobless.

For the record, M. Sarkozy has been married 3 times, with notable mistresses during each marriage. Unlike Newticles, Sarkozy does not marry his mistresses, nor does he bang his staff.

Legal Snark


Oh, have you read Judge Richard Posner’s decision striking down the Marriage Equality Ban in Indiana and Wisconsin? If you have not you are missing out on some sublime snark. This is one of my favorite passages:

In other words, Indiana’s government thinks that straight couples tend to be sexually irresponsible, producing unwanted children by the carload, and so must be pressured (in the form of governmental encouragement of marriage through a combination of sticks and carrots) to marry, but that gay couples, unable as they are to produce children wanted or unwanted, are model parents—model citizens re-ally—so have no need for marriage. Heterosexuals get drunk and pregnant, producing unwanted children; their reward is to be allowed to marry. Homosexual couples do not produce unwanted children; their reward is to be denied the right tomarry. Go figure.

And it carries on in that fine tradition.

When You Fight Redefining Marriage…

…by redefining fasting:

Xristians Against Masturbation

Virginia-based anti-gay group Family Foundation has announced a fast in opposition to same-sex marriage – but participants will be be allowed to eat, reports Pink News.

The group’s 40 Days of Prayer, Fasting and Repentance For Marriage started on August 27th and runs until October 5th, the day before the Supreme Court begins its next session and hears the first in a series of same-sex marriage appeals cases.

However, not wanting to expend too much energy on hatred, the group announced “we are asking the entire Body of Christ to join us for this feast – giving up physical food isn’t necessary – but feeding on the spiritual food provided is vital.”

An, Xristian Xrazies: they can have their cake and eat it, too.
