Well, well, well. It comes as no surprise that the Director of Issues Analysis of the frothingly anti-queer American Family Association, one Bryan Fischer, hates Muslims, as well. Well, not "...

Mrs. Betty Bowers, for those not in the know, is America's Best Christian, and as she notes in the video below, is "so close to Jesus, the rest of the Trinity calls her Yoko." In her spare time,...

Back in the W. Days, President Bush had no problem coming up with a simple—not to say simple-minded—reason why Islamic militants were jihading against us virtuous 'Murricans: They hate us for our...

I got my Hookers For Jesus  shirt today, along with a letter from the woman who left her life as a sex worker and gave her all to Jesus. Now, I can respect leaving the corporate working world and...

Yes, as we ruefully all know, there's a hardy streak of anti-intellectualism in American life. Still, those anti-gay-marriage folks seem to be hell-bent on proving it past reasonable doubt. After...

I've always been a tad suspicious of secretly queer homophobes who get outed, only to then morph, hey presto, into crusaders for gay rights. Take Roy Ashburn, for instance. As we all no doubt...

Considering that Mormons have been at the forefront of fighting to keep men butch, women femme, and queers invisible, it's kind of ironic that one of the best pieces of genderfuck video to hit the...

Last night I saw a really well-done movie with all the characteristics of Oscar-nomination-quality work—great performers doing excellent acting, a realistic setting, and perfectly appropriate music...

I was surprisingly—almost shockingly—polite when I was in Salt Lake City last month. Nonsense-spouting Morbots took me on tours of Temple Square and Brigham Young's house, and I didn't say one...

Old joke: Guy #1: "My mother made me a homosexual." Guy #2: "If I give her the yarn, will she make one for me, too?" OK, maybe not a great joke. But it reminds me of an often-heard retort to...

Chances are you've heard about Boobquake. It went viral pretty fast. In case you haven't: Iranian Muslim prayer leader Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi was recently quoted as saying, "Many women who do...

It's a truism at least as old as The Scarlet Letter: the most stringent moralists often are those with something to squirmily hide. And that, for some reason, seems to go double for those who seek...

XXXChurch Twisted Monk talks to Rachel, a pastor from the XXXChurch. For those who haven't heard of them, the organization describes itself as "the #1 Christian porn site designed to...

An autumnal chill is in the air, and many store displays now boast Halloween costumes and decorations. I often dress up as a witch—it's easy (although every year I vow to put more thought into...
