The Weekly Upchuck

Abortion

  • Overtly Theocratic- Upchuck: Texas Lieutenant Governor sounds the gavel on Texas’s abortion-killing bill. Jaw-dropping. Watch and weep for the constitutional lines he crosses. http://bit.ly/12HgbQI
  • Lady Liberty Weeps-Chuck: For all the joy among Texan anti-choicers, it is women who are the losers. Rather than being larger than life, these extremists have shown just how small they are. http://bit.ly/18nv7cg [...]

Education

  • School-daze Upchuck: In Texas, there are those who think evolution should be dispensed with entirely. Students should be taught to reject evolution altogether and accept creationism. This year, when the Texas Board of Ed sits down to wrangle over what should be in the new science textbooks, Creationist theories will very much be in the mix. http://bit.ly/18jkl6Q [...]

Elections

  • They Eat Their Own-Chuck: Christianist challenges Lindsay Graham for not being conservative enough. http://bit.ly/YtfgCq
  • Ban Textbooks, Bring Back the Bible-Chuck: Rand Paul and Ted Cruz in Iowa as featured speakers for conservative pastors organized by anti-gay, anti-choice, anti-Mormon, Christian-nation absolutist who has declared war on secularism and separation of church and state, as well as on Republicans who don’t embrace his vision of an America in which the Bible serves as “the principle textbook” for public education and a “Christian culture” has been “re-established. http://bit.ly/11WKGIu
  • Rand Hurls: “I think the Republican Party base is people who go to church. If you poll people and ask them if they go to church, maybe 60 percent of them vote Republican.” http://yhoo.it/12PKnxD [...]

Full Moon Tonight

  • He So Gay-Chuck: Gary Bauer needs to step out of the closet every now and then to learn what it’s really like to be a minority. http://bit.ly/12uHtLp [...]

Hagee – In a League of His Own

  • Check Your Facts-Chuck: Hagee sayeth  Jesus had a bar mitzvah.(minute 11) No can be true. The earliest BM was in the 14th century, long after JC’s death. Love the sweater John. http://bit.ly/194Y3Zo [...]
