Santorum’s Bad Arguments Against Marriage Equality

Rick Santorum continues to make terrible arguments against marriage equality, most recently in an interview with Phyllis Schlafly. Of course, all arguments against marriage equality are bad, but it’s kind of impressive how they make arguments without even a hint of applying them consistently.

Satanists Desperately Seeking Attention Again

The Satanic Temple has started a “campaign” — whatever that is — to demand a religious exemption from state laws that require women seeking abortions be given certain information before being able to get one. A noble cause, to be sure, but this “campaign” does nothing remotely useful. You can see their announcement here.

Impeachment Talk Backfires on the GOP

A furious push by conservatives to convince the House to vote articles of impeachment against President Obama for… oh, whatever they’re flipping out about at the moment … has backfired on the Republicans, so much so that House Speaker John Boehner is forced to pretend Obama is behind his own potential impeachment.

Morgan Brittany Hits the Ground Running

Morgan Brittany, the Worldnetdaily’s latest washed-up has-been celebrity columnist, has learned her craft quickly. Specifically, she’s learned the art of telling a ridiculous lie to support a paranoid conspiracy theory, this one about the IRS controlling our health care decisions.

Interesting Defense in McDonnell Trial

Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen are facing federal criminal corruption charges for accepting massive bribes and kickbacks from a campaign contributor and they are offering a very unusual defense: They couldn’t have been in cahoots on this because their marriage was falling apart — and she was crushing on the guy giving all the money and gifts.

Investigation Finds Forensic Flaws in Every FBI Case Reviewed

In a finding that anyone who has been paying attention to the issue should find entirely unsurprising, an FBI review of criminal cases found flawed forensic evidence in every single case reviewed. So naturally, they stopped reviewing cases because that bothered them.

An Incredibly Incoherent Letter to the Editor

Letters to the editor of a newspaper can be notoriously inane and incoherent, but this is one of the most ridiculous ones I’ve ever read. Every paragraph is just a combination of words that makes no sense whatsoever and leaves you tilting your head to the side like your dog does when he’s confused.

WND Will Tell You the Exact Day of Jesus’ Return

The New Testament makes clear that no one can know the day that Jesus will return. You’d think that would slow down alleged Christian Joseph Farah, but not if there’s a buck to be made. If you send them five bucks, they’ll tell you the exact day when the lord returns in his glory to smite everyone Farah doesn’t like.

Wingnut Worries About ‘Mexichusetts’

Jeffrey Kuhner is your standard issue right wing radio show host, having nothing to offer but ignorance, xenophobia and dumb ideas. And he’s very concerned that Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is turning that state into “Mexichusetts” by helping out a few hundred child refugees.

The Grand Unified Obama Conspiracy Theory

William Gheen, the terribly bigoted head of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, joined Alex Jones on his daily shitshow to concoct a sort of Grand Unified Theory of Obama Conspiracies, pulling together multiple independent spook stories into one big melting pot of paranoia:

Move Over Facebook, Here Comes Reaganbook

Far-right anti-choice advocate Janet Porter is sick of Facebook and its liberal ways, so she’s created Reaganbook, “the Facebook for patriots.” They do realize that this will be the holy grail for internet trolls, don’t they? Probably not. But it will be.

Welcome to the New Freethought Blogs

After seven months of frustration and irritation, the new Freethought Blogs is finally here. As you have certainly noticed by now, we have not only a new design and logo but a whole new theme and even a new server with a different hosting company. The front page is completely different and should be much more useful to those of you with an interest in specific issues, as it will curate posts across the network by topic. Three years to the day after the launch of the network, it’s a whole new FTB. A few notes:

Upcoming Network Downtime

Freethought Blogs will be shutting down for a couple hours around 2 am EST so we can move everything to a new server. Tomorrow morning it will be a whole new network — new server, new theme, new logo, new design, totally new front page. FTB launched on Aug. 1, 2011 and the new FTB will launch exactly three years later.

Gohmert Gets a New Conspiracy Theory?

There is no idea so extreme and bizarre that Rep. Louis Gohmert won’t swallow it and promote it, so it’s hardly a surprise that when a caller on Tony Perkins’ radio show suggested that the Sandy Hook tragedy was part of a grand conspiracy, Gohmert was more than happy to entertain the thought.

Robertson: Gays Will Force Christians to Have Sex

From the mouth of the man who thinks feminism is about making women kill their children, divorce their husbands, practice witchcraft and become socialists comes a whole new ridiculous claim: Gay people are going to force Christians to have sex with random people just like in Sodom and Gomorrah.
