Wake up, people! This is the liberal agenda in full effect!
Did you think that left-wing politicians like Barack Obama and Bill Clinton and eight-years-ago Mitt Romney were going to be content with forcing society into accepting alternative lifestyles like homosexuality and being a woman? Oh, no! They won't be content until they drag every last one of us down into their sick gutter of sinfulness!
Don't take my word for it…
Former presidential hopeful Rick Santorum said Wednesday that President Barack Obama is "directly assaulting" religious freedom and that his administration has implemented policies that force Catholics to abandon their faith.
"We have a president who, for the first time in American history, is directly assaulting the First Amendment and freedom of religion," Santorum said. "He is going to tell you what to do in the practice of your faith. He is forcing business people right now to do things that are against their conscience, that they will have to — if you're a Catholic — you'll have to go to confession… to confess that you are complying with a government program that is a sin in the Catholic Church."
I'm assuming that Santorum is referring to how Obama is making it mandatory for businesses to include birth control in their health care benefits even if they would rather not condone female employees having sex for purposes other than procreation. But I might be wrong. Could be Obama's been force-feeding meat to people during Lent.
I wouldn't put anything past this monster.

American Atheists — a mildly prominent organization of nonbelievers whose purpose appears to be mocking organized religion by inadvertently adopting the same tactics that makes organized religion so readily mockable — unveiled a new billboard campaign, aimed at exposing "the foolishness of religion in the political landscape."
The billboards, targeting the faiths of President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, were originally slated to appear in Tampa during the Republican National Convention, but no billboard company in the city would lease the group space, perhaps worried about vandalism from Christians who read Matthew 5:39 as saying, "If someone strikes you on the right cheek, burn him and his billboard also."
Instead, the advertisements will appear exclusively in Charlotte, North Carolina, ahead of and during the Democratic National Convention, in what is probably a physics experiment to determine whether a smugness singularity can be achieved by combining the middle school version of atheism (I know of what I write) with a large gathering of liberals…
"Our political system is rife with religion and it depends too much on religion and not enough on substance," said David Silverman, president of American Atheists, sponsor of the ads.
"Religion is silly and religion has components that are inherently divisive… There is no place for any of that in the political system," he said.
On the bright side, at least there's one group with the courage to attack President Obama for his Protestantism.
But really, a billboard campaign that tries to actively convert people without offering any argument, except a crude critique of Christian and Mormon beliefs that aren't central to theism? Can't see how this fails. Checkmate, Christians.

Thanks to legislation signed by Louisiana governor and potential Mitt Romney running mate Bobby Jindal, beginning this fall, thousands Louisiana schoolkids will receive taxpayer funded vouchers covering the full cost of tuition at private religious schools, some of which are reputed to be excellent alternatives to the state's under-performing public schools and some of which are fly by night operations relying on the hilarious-in-a-cry-yourself-to-sleep-kind-of-way curriculum contained in textbooks published by A Beka Book and Bob Jones University Press.
Mother Jones did yeoman's work of highlighting the wackiest facts these textbooks teach, which leads us to this quiz: Are You Smarter Than a Bible School-Educated Louisianan?

Please, people. Be safe out there. Do not, under any circumstances, get between Michele Bachmann and a camera when there's human suffering to be exploited.

Like Rep. Michele Bachmann before them, Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-A learned a valuable lesson yesterday. You cannot choose to align yourself the intolerant and abusive factions of modern society and expect the people of America to sit idly by. No, sir!
My countrymen and countrywomen will rise up, reach deep into their wallets and throw their money at you…
Chick-fil-A says it set a sales record on Wednesday, the day that supporters rallied around the fast-food chain amid a debate over its president's opposition to same-sex marriage.
The chain said it won't release sales numbers, but "we can confirm reports that it was a record-setting day," said Steve Robinson, Chick-fil-A's executive vice president of marketing.
Let this be a lesson to all those fast food restaurants out there who are planning to announce their support for puppy hunting, nerd sterilization and the forced internment of gingers in next week's paper.
