I have yet another reason for being embarrassed to be from Georgia. This time the Gwinnett County school board held a hearing to ban Harry Potter, at the request of missionary mom crying "anti-christian bias." Why? Witchcraft, of course. Who … Continue reading
It looks like the BBC has finally picked up on the story of about Iraq’s anti-gay death squads. The opening of the story makes it sound almost as if Iraq has developed the ultimate "ex-gay therapy." "I don’t want to … Continue reading
Not that it’s going to get much play anywhere at all, but the UN has confirmed the initial reports about Iraq’s anti-gay religious death squads.
While we’re on the subject of religion, check out Faith in America — an organization dedicated to "the emancipation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from bigotry disguised as religious truth." [Hat-tip to Adamant Sun.]
