More Popery than you care to know

In all honesty, I don’t really care who the Pope meets with or why. But the thing is, my mom reads this blog, and she’s really irritated that Francis met with Kim Davis for whatever reason, and so I’m doing this so that she’ll hopefully read it and calm down a little.

The United… Continue reading Half a Supreme loaf is better than none

Why do anti-marriage equality types think that this is an effective argument?

Marco Rubio: “If pro-traditional marriage is bigotry, then Barack Obama was a bigot just before the 2012 election,” Rubio, a possible 2016 presidential candidate, said in a speech about conservative family values at Catholic University. Ralph Reed (seriously, this guy is still around?): Saying he “can’t let that go,” Reed, an unapologetic social conservative, jumped… Continue reading Why do anti-marriage equality types think that this is an effective argument?
