Whenever a gaggle of jackasses deserve a wag of the finger or just the finger, we offer you an infuriating round-up. And this week, most of the shit that’s got us stewing is happening in The Lone Star State. Their offenses range from dumb to deranged, but across the board we say, “Seriously, fuck that guy!”

—The Texas judge who denied a married couple the right to adopt each other’s biological sons, because the couple is made up of two gay men. (Gaily Grind)


—The Texas preacher/aspiring flaming heterosexual who promises he will set himself on fire in protest if America legalizes gay marriage nationwide. (New Next Now)


—This Australian couple who claims they’ll divorce if marriage equality comes to their nation. Because what makes marriage special if just anyone can do it, I guess? (New Now Next)


—Former Texas governor/current presidential “hopeful” Rick Perry, who called the mass-murder in Charleston an “accident,” and is not sold it was an “act of terror.” FUCK that guy. (The Guardian)


—Fellow Republican presidential wannabe, Rick Santorum, who told the pope to stick to the religion and stay out of the climate change debate. (Mother Jones)


—An NRA leader, who (on a Texas gun rights forum) blamed the pastor of the Charleston church for the tragedy. Because more guns means less problems or something. (Mother Jones)


—The Wall Street Journal, which published a post that said the killings in Charleston were caused by a “problem that defies explanation.” And Cheers to Flickr cofounder Stewart Butterfield who disagrees, and handed WSJ their asses on Twitter. (Business Insider)


—Everyone who has contributed to the spike in the sale of Confederate flags as stores pull them from shelves, and those who are calling this removal “cultural genocide.” (NBC)
