Why did Scott Walker (a preacher’s son) lie about how he came to hold Ronald Reagan’s bible?

Back in 2013, Gov. Scott Walker told a story to fellow conservatives about how he came to hold the family Bible used by President Ronald Reagan when Reagan took the oath of office. At the time, the story seemed to create a powerful connection between Reagan and Walker, who idolizes the former president. However, according […]

Scott Walker says he consults with God, but his office can’t provide documents to prove it

This is hilarious… After Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker made another reference to God speaking to him in a speech before bankers in January, Freedom From Religion Foundation member Edward Susterich made an open records request of his office for evidence of his communications with the Lord — and his office replied, officially, that it could […]

Barry Goldwater On The Separation of Church and State

One of our regular readers and I were sharing some memories of previous presidential campaigns. I mentioned that my favorite bumper sticker of all time was simply AU H20. Several days later he sent me this image of Senator Goldwater and a timely quote on the relationship of church and state. ENJOY:

Yes, Islam Is Speaking Out Against The Attacks On Charlie Hebdo

Following any type of attack on the West (and let me be clear here…I mean the West) by Muslim extremists, the cry goes out that all moderate and peaceful Muslims must denounce the terrorisms being carried out in the name of their religion. Well in fact, such denouncements have occurred…but they are hard to find […]

Pope Francis to issue edict on climate change

As reported by The Guardian, Pope Francis is set to issue a Papal Edict on climate change ahead of next year’s UN climate meeting in Paris, in an attempt to influence the dialogue at that meeting. He has been called the “superman pope”, and it would be hard to deny that Pope Francis has had […]

SCOTUS Turn Their Own Decisions Into A Moving Target

Just days after opening a second front on the war on women, the Supreme Court of the United States back tracks on one of the alternatives they delineated in their Hobby Lobby decision. No really!

Birth Control Order Deepens Divide Among Justices

WASHINGTON — In a decision that drew an unusually fierce dissent from the […]

Front page Hobby Lobby photo sends faux feminist message

When I originally saw this photograph, my response was a chuckle while shaking my head. But there is far more going on here than most of us realize. [and I have often complained about how the right ‘messages’ their positions while the left just doesn’t get it, and here’s a perfect example] Subtle but effective… […]

Hobby Lobby Ruling Should Move Us Toward Single Payer Health Coverage

Any number of GOP pundits have condemned the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) as the start of the slippery slope to single payer health care in the United States. To that I can add, I only hope!

But as part of yesterday’s Supreme Court Ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby’s religious freedom (I hope the […]
