African-American Pastors Condemning Obama’s Gay Marriage Stance


This is probably something he didn’t expect and didn’t want, but he’s stuck with it now.

When Obama announced that his position on same-sex marriage had evolved, it outraged some African-American pastors like Pastor and Del. Emmett Burns.

Anti-Christian Bully Stands By Comments


Saturday I blogged about a speaker at an anti-bullying event turning into an anti-Christian bully himself. Today he says he stands by most of his comments.

Columnist and gay-rights advocate Dan Savage is standing by his comment that “we can learn to ignore the bulls**t in the Bible about gay people” at a recent conference for high school students, a line that prompted some to walk out and spurred intense online debate.

Anti-Bullying Speaker Turns Into Anti-Christian Bully


Way to practice what you preach.

As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant “pansy assed.”

The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President Obama to Hollywood stars. Savage also writes a sex advice column called “Savage Love.”

Savage, and his husband, were also guests at the White House for President Obama’s 2011 LGBT Pride Month reception. He was also invited to a White House anti-bullying conference.

Farrakhan: Jesus Was A Muslim


Okay, Louis Farrakhan has officially jumped the shark (emphasis in original):

Most astoundingly, Farrakhan made the argument that Jesus was not Christian. “Because Jesus said ‘Not My will, but Thy will.’ You know what we call that in Arabic?  Islam. He was a Muslim.”

Timothy Cardinal Dolan On Government Contraception Mandate


Over the weekend Timothy Cardinal Dolan was on Face the Nation, and he spoke out on many issues, including separation of church and state, whether you should vote for or against Romney because he’s a Mormon, and of course the mandate that religious institutions and companies have to provide contraception coverage.

The video is below the fold. If you’re just interested in his comments on the mandate, it starts about 5:15 in the clip.

77% Believe Jesus Rose From The Dead


An Easter poll that should raise your spirits (no pun intended) if you’re a Christian:

This Easter weekend, Americans’ belief in the divinity of Jesus Christ remains strong.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 86% of American Adults believe the person known to history as Jesus Christ walked the Earth 2,000 years ago. Just seven percent (7%) don’t share this belief. (To see survey question wording, click here).
