"What used to be the lunatic fringe is now called the House of Representatives."

Great article on the toll that the right wing has already taken on America.

"Taking heart at Donald Trumpís plummeting favorability numbers? You think he maybe finally jumped the shark by taking a victory lap over the Orlando massacre? You think the Republic is now safe?

Iowa governor attempting to impose Christianity as state governmentís religion, say rights groups

The Des Moines Register reported that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Iowa, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) and the group Iowa Atheists and Freethinkers have roundly condemned the action as a high-handed attempt to establish Christianity as the official religion of the state government. The plan, they say, is a direct violation of the Establishment Clause of the U.S. Constitutionís First Amendment.
