The gay rape gang that never existed, and how it spread through fundamentalist Christian social media

Earlier in the week, in a response to something that I’d written about Michigan’s “License to Discriminate” legislation having passed the House, a reader by the name of EOS posted a link to a ridiculous video intended to demonstrate, if I understood it correctly, that gay people can, when pushed, be just as intolerant as […]

Could getting caught in a lie in Ohio cost Romney the election?
