Ok, this made me laugh:
(via The Onion)
Oh that is just awesome. The Onion does satire so awesomely well it’s like a real news site.
Fortunately for young Lucas, the fundamentalist orientation is curable. Ex-fundies like me are always happy to provide gentle, caring guidance to those who wish to leave the superstitious lifestyle.
Of course from my POV, the odd thing is that where and when I went to highschool and college, being fundamentalist was a bit like being gay ;-). (OK, not that rough — but definitely non-mainstream).
“I’m sure he’ll grow out of it, but even if he doesn’t, I will love and accept my son no matter what.”
She sounds like an accepting mom. Dad, though, needs some of Richard’s advice.
I’m not sure, but maybe he should be sent to Atheist Camp.
I dunno. Maybe it’s because of my flirtation with Music Education when I was in my 20s, but the line about Swing Choir was what cracked me up.
I don’t care what them fancy head doctors say, Christian fundamentalism is NOT inborn! ‘Taint natural! Just look at the plumbing! It’s a lifestyle choice and aint nobody gonna change my mind!
Now if I could just find my mind… I thought I left it aroun’ here somewhere…
Words cannot express how much I love The Onion.
-The Onion is fine as satire, but it has nothing on Fox News. That one, you can almost believe is a real news netw…
-What do you mean it *IS* a real news network!?!
Christianity is an abomination…
I know a good psychiatrist who can cure this boy of his unnatural urges…
I don’t care what Christians do in private but why does this boy have to flaunt his inclinations in my face!
It’s not enough that they have to have their unnatural beliefs, but they go around flaunting them too! And of course they go after young boys, you know how those people are.
I just hope the poor parents aren’t blaming themselves.
Here in Canada, fundamentalists are even allowed to get married.
Heh. Same kind of role reversal in an Australian comedy programme:
OMFFSM!!! Jude, you rule!!!
Hilarious. Check out the religion slideshow on one side of the link too!
Awesome, once again The Onion proves it’s more valuable than most legitimate papers. Funny how much truth can be found in well done satire.
This one’s pretty hilarious, too: http://www.theonion.com/content/news/sumerians_look_on_in_confusion_as.
