In which V. is astounded by human stupidity.
I try to be tolerant of other peoples' beliefs, but when someone's beliefs condemn homosexuality, tolerance just kind of flies out the window. If you think being gay is a choice, or something that can be cured, or (shudder) something you need to Get Right With God, then you're a retard and you deserve to be cruelly mocked. And you know, I do like to step in and cruelly mock things.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Love God's Way
. Notice how they proudly invite you to watch a music video called God Hates Fags
. That's classy. Also research indicates that the man who sings "God Hates Fags" considers himself to be a "reformed homosexual". Clearly he has a lot of sick psychological issues, and he should probably deal with them before he commits a hate crime or something. Then again, if you write a song called "God Hates Fags" and sing it with 110% enthusiasm and cheer, you've already committed a hate crime.
But the thing that brought this site to my attention, and the thing that I'm bringing to yours is this:
They have thoughtfully compiled a list of Gay Bands
. I'm unclear as to whether they think all of these bands are gay, or if your kids will just turn gay if they listen to this music. Because they reckon this:
One of the most dangerous ways homosexuality invades family life is through popular music. Parents should keep careful watch over their children's listening habits, especially in this Internet Age of MP3 piracy.
This is so dumb that I am losing brain cells just writing about it. Check out that list though, for a laugh. I'm not sure why they think Metallica will make you gay. Or Bjork, or DMX. Although I did have a gay friend in high school who really loved Wilson Phillips. He loved the Carpenters as well, but I don't see them on the list.
Also please notice their descriptions on some of those names. It defies reason. For example, George Michael (texan) and Ted Nugent (loincloth). It cracks me up how they're dead certain about everyone on that list except for Morrissey. Morrissey is "questionable". I'll say.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, Elton John is "really gay".
I keep looking for evidence that this is all a sick joke (especially the "God Hates Fags" song. What the fuck? That can't
be for real??) but I don't think it is...
