FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Other than this just being stupid and ignorant, I've got to say as much as I love Barney, he's not exactly the poster boy that any "recruitment campaign" would want to "lure" young men into being gay. An old, balding, rumpled, overworked policy wonk? Right Wing Watch does a helluva job keeping up with these wingtards.

On Monday, Massachusetts congressman Barney Frank announced that he will not seek reelection next year, and American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer decided to celebrate Frank’s retirement by attacking the congressman for being gay. On Focal Point yesterday, Fischer claimed that Frank may have used his prominent position to “influence” other men into becoming gay who may have later contracted AIDS. “This is a dangerous, risky, immoral, unhealthy lifestyle, and Barney Frank has been an open practitioner of a lifestyle that is condemning one young man after another to an early grave,” Fischer said, “this is not somebody to admire, this is not somebody to honor.”

Kentucky church votes to not accept interracial couples as members

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Who is it in these articles I keep reading who have declared racism in America a thing of the past?

This past summer, Stella Harville brought her fiancé, Ticha Chikuni, a native of Zimbabwe, to church.  She accompanied him on the piano as he sang. Then this happened...

Via Kentucky.com:

A small Pike County church has voted not to accept interracial couples as members or let them take part in some worship activities.

The decision has caused sharp reaction and disapproval in the Eastern Kentucky county.

Melvin Thompson was the pastor at the time, and he told Stella's father that Ticha was not welcome to sing at the church again.

Thankfully, a new pastor replaced Thompson, but shockingly, in 2011, interracial couples still face blatant racism... in a church of all places. We should have moved beyond discrimination like this by now, but sadly, that's not the case.

In early November, Thompson proposed the church go on record saying that while all people were welcome to attend public worship services there, the church did not condone interracial marriage, according to a copy of the recommendation supplied by the Harvilles.

The proposal also said "parties of such marriages will not be received as members, nor will they be used in worship services" or other church functions, with the exception of funerals.

Know why? According to Thompson, "To promote greater unity among the church body and the community we serve."

Nothing says "unity" like segregation. How Christian of him.

Just shameful. Then again, considering the hate directed at President Obama and his family, I guess this should come as no surprise.

Via ABC News.

"This was not sex for cash."

"I wouldn't want to make this up."

“The funny thing about Herman Cain is never in a million years did he probably think that I would speak out on this. And honestly speaking I never wanted to.”

"Have I ever been evicted? Never."

"I honestly don't think ... he would make a good president."

Herman Cain called Ginger White "troubled." Pot. Kettle. Wacko.

White, 46, described their relationship as a “very casual affair.” She said she was single when it began and Cain took her on “several trips,” including to a Mike Tyson vs. Evander Holyfield fight in Las Vegas.

Time to get out of the race, Hermie, you're more done than Callista Gingrich's hair.

"Remember, this is the guy, who when he was running for office, thought it was cool to have oral sex with another man's wife in a suburban driveway while his kids were walking past the car."

Ouch.

GOP lawmaker criticizes Obama for not mentioning God in Thanksgiving address

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

What's worse than a stupid teabagger congressman? A stupid teabagger congressman who can't even keep Fox News stories straight. Oh wait, neither can Fox News.

A freshman Republican expressed his disappointment Wednesday that President Obama didn't mention God in his Thanksgiving address.

In comments on the House floor, Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) said was "surprised and disappointed" that Obama failed to make any reference to God during last week's address. He also said he believed it was not an accident since Obama has "a history of doing this sort of thing."

"Since the president has a history of doing this sort of thing, it's hard to believe that this was simply an oversight on his part," Duncan said. "Perhaps this glaring omission was an attempt at being politically correct, but regardless of the intention, there's no excuse for once again leaving out the one [on] whom the foundation of our liberties rest."
