William Saletan has a very silly article over at Slate this morning arguing that gay marriage shouldn't be threatened by the "hyperventilating conservatives" who see it as a gateway to polygamy.  His reasons?  That one on one relationships conform better to "human nature" ...Read More...

NY Times columnist John Tierney has gone over the edge with his latest piece in support of polygamy.  He says, "..the question that comes to mind is not how to keep polygamy illegal.  The question is why bother to ban something that takes so much work these days?" "Polygamy ...Read More...

I watched the pilot program of HBO's "Big Love" yesterday.  I'm happy to report that at least in my mind, it fails on all counts.  1) It purports to show a polygamy in an understanding light while completely failing to grasp the religious motivation behind such aberrant behavior.  ...Read More...

Rich Lowry’s vast ignorance of Islam, not to mention the history of Iraq, is once again on display in this new cover story for National Review. He labels those who disagree with the President’s stay the course approach in Iraq as “to hell with them” hawks. It sounds ...Read More...
