You Know You're a Dumbass....

When you quote The Onion for facts.

This bit of Religious Right Ridiculousness brought to you by AmericaBlog, because a good nation deserves the truth.
Oh yeah. First it was Tinky Winky. Now they're taking on gay sharks. Not kidding. And they even quote "The Onion" as proof. And they ask why the hell we think they're a bunch of Bible thumping morons? You're accusing a shark of being gay and using the Onion as proof. Idiots.

In a nutshell, the movie is about a Great White Shark named Lenny who is a vegetarian. Dad does not approve, and the movie goes on from there. The movie's Web page includes the phrase "it's sometimes okay to swim against the current." And the religious right disapproves of this message of tolerance against those who are a bit different, even though, truth be told, they're pretty damn different themselves. One wonders how long the religious right would survive in a country like the one they're trying to craft - i.e., a country that crushes those who are different and unliked by the majority (message to religious right: you're not 50% of the vote, think about that).

Oh, and it gets better. Apparently the young shark "cross-dresses" as a dolphin! The horror, the horror. Now young boys across America may think it's ok to - dare I say it - dress as dolphins.

Only America's Taliban could bring a whole new meaning to the phrase "Free Willy."

Lenny the Shark and YT's sometimes-commenter Armtornoff are now bound by incident. Both have been attacked by the American Family Association, and in both incidences, the AFA has come away looking the fool. Dumb is as dumb does.

"The essence of Christianity is told us in the Garden of Eden
history. The fruit that was forbidden was on the tree of
knowledge. The subtext is, All the suffering you have is
because you wanted to find out what was going on. You could
be in the Garden of Eden if you had just keep your fucking
mouth shut and hadn't asked any questions"...I wish i could take credit for that quote but I can't, it was from none otherthan Frank Zappa. Great post and I like your reference to the "Americain Taliban" I may use that once in a while
