This is just getting ridiculous. I think these whack-job fundamentalists have simply become parodies of themselves. Do they even believe the hateful rhetoric they spew?

A pastor who uses his Internet platform to teach political lessons based on conservative Christian ideology has proposed a constitutional amendment to punish LGBT people for “ten years in prison at hard labor.”
In a video posted to his PreachingPolitics.com website last month that was flagged by the Good As You blog on Monday, Pastor Michael V. Williams asserts that Christians have been “increasingly tolerant” of gay people over the last 50 years.
“Whereas homosexuality used to be a felony in every state — referred to as sodomy — it has now been decriminalized, and homosexuality is allowed to be openly expressed in public,” he notes. “While Christians are becoming increasingly tolerant of homosexuals, homosexuals are becoming increasingly intolerant of us.”

Isaac Asimov said ‘I am an emotional atheist. As to the claim that God exists, my suspicion is so strong that I don’t want to waste my limited time believing/acting on it’. Even though I am an atheist, I can appreciate religion when ever it results in kindness honesty and courage, like the writer Kurt Vonnegut when he says ‘Believe in all harmless untruths if it makes you kind, happier and more truthful’.
In all of the arguments that we, atheists make against religion, the underlying thread is ‘logic’. The problem with using logic is that we HAVE to stop it at one point in the line of argument. It is so because logic can’t create a meaning of one’s life. It can only help us derive a moral structure from a fundamental premise such as ‘compassion towards’ / ‘happiness of’ / ‘freedom of’ all living creatures.
Police who traced a video camera discovered in a men’s bathroom to its owner discovered he was one of their own… and he was inviting “straight” men to his home to receive oral sex from the other side of the barrier. The “straight” men apparently had “no idea” that there was a man on the other side of the glory hole. Really?

CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KSDK) – Chesterfield police have arrested one of their own for recording video in a men’s restroom.
Chesterfield Police Officer David Cerna, 33, faces a felony charge of invasion of privacy, according to Chesterfield Police Chief Ray Johnson. Cerna set up a camera in a vent in a Mobil on the Run location, where it recorded men using the facilities, Johnson said during a press conference.
A media investigation tipped off the department that someone had been recording a men’s restroom, Johnson said.
Sorry, fellas: Looks like we’re all gay – unless you’ve a man who has never masturbated. If you’re a gay man and you masturbate, I think that makes you Super Gay. It might that might be like when Mario gets a Power Up mushroom in Super Mario Bros., but you’d have to ask the nun who shared this theory with a bunch of teenagers at a North Carolina high school. Who better to provide an educated opinion on matters of sexuality than a nun?

A Catholic nun has caused a firestorm after she allegedly told teens at Charlotte Catholic High School in North Carolina last month that masturbation can turn boys gay, and gay men have up to 1,000 sexual partners. Sister Jane Dominic Laurel, an assistant professor of theology at Aquinas College in Nashville, Tennessee, reportedly has a history of anti-gay rhetoric. In one of her online lectures, she called oral sex an abnormal act that’s “imported from the homosexual culture,” according to the Charlotte-based LGBT publication, QNotes.

A bizarre and violent series of events at an Oklahoma City apartment involving Bible burning, blood, a “homosexual demon” and destruction, has landed a man behind bars.
According to Oklahoma City police, 22-year-old Jeremy Jarnell Anderson is being held at the Oklahoma County jail Thursday after a violent episode at his apartment on the 1400 block of S. Indiana Ave.
Officers said they were called to the Oklahoma City apartment Wednesday for a reported “person going ballistic.”
Officers said the caller mentioned a man whose face was bloody had kicked a heavy apartment door off its hinges, poured salt and soap all over himself and was breaking glass and other objects.
“Who pretends to love decently using the favorite position of dogs!”
Ana Maria Jimenez Ortiz, a local deputy of the PAN Party in Puebla, said during a forum on whether to legalize gay marriage in the state of Puebla that “marriage should only be considered as those relationships in which the members have sex while facing each other.”
Jimenez Ortiz said that this “does not occur between gay couples,” Mexican media reported. She added that blind people are also in that category, but it was unclear whether she was talking about legally blind people or those who prefer to have sex with the lights off.
She said that this was based on the scientific method, asserting that only eye contract at time of copulation creates a true union.
“Who pretends to love decently using the favorite position of dogs!” she said.
The gay-friendly city of New Orleans might make your forget about the rest of Louisiana, but if you’re a gay man living there you might want to beware. The East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Department is busting gay men for sodomy laws. (Incidentally, these same laws make giving or receiving a blowjob illegal between two men or a man and a woman. Wonder how much “sodomy” is going on in these deputies’ bedrooms? How about some citizen’s arrests?)

An undercover East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputy was staking out Manchac Park about 10 a.m. one day this month when a slow-moving sedan pulling into the parking lot caught his attention. The deputy parked alongside the 65-year-old driver and, after denying being a cop, began a casual conversation that was electronically monitored by a backup team nearby.
As the two men moved their chat to a picnic table, the deputy propositioned his target with “some drinks and some fun” back at his place, later inquiring whether the man had any condoms, according to court records.

We are all familiar with the colloquialism “gaydar” which refers to a person’s intuitive, and often wildly inaccurate, ability to assess the sexual orientation of another person. In the 1960s, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) attempted to use a slightly more scientific, though equally flawed, approach- a machine to detect if a person was gay or not. This was in an attempt to eliminate homosexuals from the Canadian military, police and civil service. The specific machine, dubbed the “Fruit Machine”, was invented by Dr. Robert Wake, a Carelton University Psychology professor.
Taking the lead from the United States’ McCarthyism, the Canadian government considered all homosexual public servants to be a threat to national security for various absurd reasons. In order to deal with the “security threats” posed by gay people, a special team in the RCMP was formed. Section A-3′s sole mission was to identify and dismiss from service every homosexual working for the Canadian government.
