Filed by Bil Browning | July 28, 2010 | 11:30 AM | comments

Based off the "lynch gays" sign we captured at NOM's Indianapolis anti-gay rally, Projector Rob made up a new logo for the hate group. I think you'll like it as much as I do. It seems entirely appropriate....Read More

More NOM propaganda

Filed by Alex Blaze | July 22, 2010 | 8:00 PM | comments

Davina posted yesterday on that weird NOM video in which a woman accuses LGBT activists of standing in front of her. I'm a bit more skeptical about that video than she was, but we both agree that, either way, it's...Read More

The ex-gay agenda

Filed by Alex Blaze | July 21, 2010 | 4:00 PM | comments

Look what Wayne Besen turned up (trigger warning): I disagree - honest perversion is a whole lot better than what they're describing in that interview. There's nothing wrong with getting some kink on - where this crosses the line is...Read More

Filed by Davina Kotulski | July 21, 2010 | 11:30 AM | comments

Hate is hate no matter whose side it's coming from. In fact, I can not see the love from "our side" from this NOM video as their t-shirts ask. Here is a video that the anti-gay group NOM produced. Here's...Read More

Republicans side with Islamic fundamentalists against gays

Filed by Joe Mirabella | July 16, 2010 | 11:00 AM | comments

Apparently the Republicans have more in common with Islamic extremists than they care to admit when they talk about "terrorism." This little nugget arrived in my inbox from a friend. It is a stark reminder what a Republican majority might...Read More

Filed by Bil Browning | July 07, 2010 | 4:00 PM | comments
