Geeks Out Reacts To “Tolerance” Plea

Geeks Out has posted a response to Orson Scott Card’s plea for “tolerance.” This plea for tolerance is perhaps a bridge too far, especially from someone who characterized gay marriage as “the bludgeon [The Left] use to make sure that it becomes illegal to teach traditional values in the schools,” (2012). There’s nothing more democratic and tolerant than a consumer …

Orson Scott Card Pleads For “Tolerance”

“Ender’s Game is set more than a century in the future and has nothing to do with political issues that did not exist when the book was written in 1984.

NOM Chairman: End Of Prop 8 Could Mean Same Fate For Other Voter Initiatives

“Imagine a hypothetical whose possibility is now very real in light of Roberts’ decision. Gov. Jerry Brown has recently expressed his renewed opposition to Proposition 13, the tax limitation initiative (during his last stint as governor in the 1970s, Brown opposed Proposition 13).

Maggie Gallagher: Justice Kennedy Has Declared A Fatwa On America

“Will we concede the legitimacy of Kennedy’s fatwa against us, or will we respond with a sustained opposition — legal, political, cultural, and of the moral imagination? The legal implications are vast. I think this is, in fact, Roe v. Wade. The majority on the Supreme Court has clearly accepted that our Founding Fathers guaranteed us all a right to …

INDIANA: NOM Launches Renewed Bid To Ban Marriage In State Constitution

Just posted by Brian Brown: Despite issuing two terrible decisions on marriage, the US Supreme Court stopped short of fabricating a “right” to redefine marriage in our Constitution, allowing individual states to settle the question.

“In a case that has been marked by judicial arrogance and, frankly, lawlessness since the beginning, three judges of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals late Friday lifted their stay which had been in effect since a trial judge had ruled against Proposition 8. Same-sex couples began being ‘married’ in California when state officials illegitimately declared Proposition 8 was no …

NOM Losers Issue Money Beg

“I am furious about what the Court has done. We at NOM and tens of millions of other Americans will never accept it. It’s wrong, plain and simple.
