  1. Love the "be less gay" advice. (sigh)

  2. Not really related to the above, but I thought you'd find this interesting:

    In Canada, our leaders hide their evangelical religious beliefs!

  3. Donna Banta -- Aye. My advice to homophobes is "be less narrow-minded."

    Knatolee -- I'll take a look at it. Thanks!

  4. The headlines alone make me want to pull out more than a few hairs. Discouraging news from the federal court finding that private citizens do not have standing to challenge the National Day of Prayer. Wow.

    Maybe a bunch of us should collaborate on a well-researched and informative/objective article advocating for right-wingers to be less stupid?

  5. Cognitive Dissenter -- Heh! We've got the research in spades!
