Link round-up for 28 June 2015

Here's how the marriage map looks now (the second map is correct).  I guess these guys haven't been keeping up.

These Confederate flag fans must be pretty unhappy right now.

Like, what is "like" like?

God hates Tylenol.

At last, a broadly accepting religious group (found via Mendip).

Which country is smarter?

Civic-minded people take out the garbage. But a few dinosaurs don't yet realize they're extinct.  And these people existYou can help.

Bet you never thought there are this many colors (porpoise?).

Teh Donald is really starting to scare the Republican establishment.

The FRC is caught blatantly lying about statistics.

Friday's victory is celebrated by Andrew Sullivan, various companies, and national landmarks.  But the spirit of Wallace in the schoolhouse door is alive and well in the South, as the Christian Right rages, Presidential candidates divide along party lines, and the troglodyte "base" vents its semiliterate wrath (found via a comment at Progressive Eruptions).  Republic of Gilead has more from around the Godhatesfagsosphere.  Let's see if any of these predictions come true.

The US marriage ruling heartens activists worldwide, including at London's biggest pride parade ever.

Should polygamy be next?  Fredrik deBoer makes the case, with some uncomfortable truths about progressive discomfiture with the issue.

Here's Donald Trump's son -- pretty much what you'd expect.

Jindal starts paying the price for a bigoted executive order.  Here are some more great Jindal moments.

Hillary bluntly confronts the racism behind the Charleston attack and the Confederate flag, while Republican candidates still shy away (found via Fair and Unbalanced).

It's not just California -- drought is striking everywhere.

Sorry, but no amount of "gun control" can prevent events like the Charleston attack.

The TPP vote was bought, of course, but it seems Democrats come cheap.

Ireland's former top Catholic official admits the Church intimidated victims to cover up sex abuse.

Some Nigerian states have religious courts which can sentence people to death for blasphemy.  I'm sure some states in the US would do the same, if it weren't for the First Amendment.

It was a mass murder of 32 people, but nobody much cared.

Since the Charleston attack, three black churches in the South have been burned.

A New Jersey court rules "conversion therapy" fraudulent (link from Ahab).

There's plenty more right-wing bullshit out there.

Thanks for linking to my Trump entry again. Also thanks for linking to Green Eagle. I've been reading his(?) blog since getting up today.

I'm with Ahab. Sitting back, enjoying this Sunday's Link Roundup, and feeling good about the decisions the Court made this week.

Superb links, as usual, sir. I especially enjoyed the one about the nice lady who wants her followers to boycott Tylenol®. Too precious.

On the "Like, what is 'like' like?" post, my gripe is about things that are now "for free." The just used to be free.
