The progressive Christian group Sojourners refused to run the ad on their website, not wanting to “take sides.” Sojourners hasn’t been shy about taking sides on the Republican budget plan, the war in Afghanistan and any number […]
Andrew Sullivan on Newt Gingrich: It seems to me that someone who has legally had three marriages should not be campaigning against some people being barred from having even one.

He has no problems if Terry is gay, but he’s not saying Terry is gay…he just wants folks to know that someone could say that […]
Chuck Coughlin is taking time out from his busy schedule advocating for the private prison industry to spread unfounded innuendos about Terry Goddard’s personal life.
