Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett may be the most anti-LGBTQ governor in the nation.  
Corbett’s attorneys, in a filing to stop Montgomery County from issuing marriage licenses, compared gay marriage to allowing 12-year-olds to get married. 
After being chastised by equality advocates and editorials across the state, Corbett doubled down, comparing the marriage of same-sex couples to incest.
When asked about his lawyers’ comparison of gay marriage to 12-year-olds, Corbett said, "It was an inappropriate analogy, you know," Corbett said. "I think a much better analogy would have been brother and sister, don't you?"

Unfortunately, Corbett’s words have been matched by his actions.  He has consistently opposed marriage equality, supporting court cases and legislation that keep Pennsylvania as the only state in the northeast that does not have same sex marriage or civil unions.

Lizz Winstead: Hey Hobby Lobby, quit trying to get crafty with our reproductive rights!





So the Green family, billionaire owners of Hobby Lobby, a Christian Craft store (whatever THAT means), don't want to cover certain birth control options in their employee healthcare plan because Jesus or something.

In fact, this brood are so rich they just paid millions to take their fight to keep ignoring science all the way to the Supreme Court.

Yep this is what passes for democracy in 2014.


The Supreme Court of the United States, is deciding on the Hobby Lobby V Sebilius, and these dangerous religious gajillionaires will argue their corporation has the constitutional right to make medical decisions for its employees, using their interpretation of the bible as the ONLY guiding medical principal.

No I am not shitting you.

Watch Will Ferrell and Robert Redford hilariously insult each other to save a river

Watch Will Ferrell and Robert Redford hilariously insult each other to save a river




This is probably the first river-related PSA that’ll actually crack you up. Golden fox Robert Redford (he’s more tawny than silver) just wanted to tell you about Raise the River, a campaign to restore the Colorado River. But of course Will Ferrell had to go and interrupt with his OWN campaign, Move the Ocean. “Do we REALLY need more river? I mean, hell, we’ve got plenty of ocean. Let’s move IT.”

Vote for PA State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe in the "Not-So-Sweet-Sixteen"


The staff of Progress Now has released the list and tournament seeding of the sixteen most outrageous, radical, out of touch right-wingers who over the past year have proven that, for one reason or another, they belong in this year’s Not-So-Sweet 16. The competition is stiff this year, but we think the Pennsylvania-based entries are worthy of your votes.

Today, there are play-ins to make the No-So-Sweet 16.

Pennsylvania State Representative Daryl Metcalfe 

After last June’s landmark Supreme Court ruling in United States v. Windsor, which overturned most of the Defense of Marriage Act, most of us were overjoyed by this partial victory.  Pennsylvania’s first openly gay state representative, Brian Sims, wanted to share his joy in the decision on the House floor.  As soon as he began speaking his mic was cut off by Republican Rep. Daryl Metcalfe.

Why?  Metcalfe said “His talking about that [marriage equality] on the House floor would have been an open rebellion against Almighty God and God’s word, against God’s law. And as a Christian, if I would have sat there and been silent, it would have violated my conscience because of my beliefs as a Christian.”

Metcalfe has risen to a leadership position in the GOP-controlled House, serving as the chair of the powerful State Government Committee.  This is despite (or because of) his history of attacks on LGBT, immigrant and non-Christian Pennsylvanians.  Metcalfe has even called veterans “traitors” for supporting cap and trade.

Vote for Metcalfe here.
