Rowe on Kupelian’s Ridiculous Book

Also at Positive Liberty, Jon Rowe has a post about David Kupelian’s book The Marketing of Evil. Kupelian is one of the big muckety mucks at the Worldnutdaily and his book is full of the sort of breathless and ridiculous “the fags are coming, the fags are coming” rhetoric that is de rigeur at that terminally silly webpage. As Rowe points out, Kupelian’s book spins a web of conspiracy around a book called After the Ball, written by a couple of gay rights activists back in the 80s, a book that was out of print and virtually unknown until Kupelian revived it. Now it’s being bought up by religious righters to confirm their delusions about those evil gay people coming to take over and destroy everything good and decent. It’s all quite ridiculous.

    Look at it this way, depending on the deal the authors of “After the Ball” had, the religious right is offering them financial support buying their book.

    So the gays are going to destroy us all. Thank whatever gods that this truth has been revealed to us. I mean, the word of a bunch of people that claim to talk to an invisible superhero in the sky has got to count for something, right?

    Oh, and while two people of the same sex seeking to dedicate themselves to a relationship is pretty evil, at least there aren’t any horrors being commited by the followers of the Magical Sky Wizard.

    Go to amazon.com and look at the cover. A hand presenting an apple. Could that be from the tree of knowledge?

    That’s the tree of knowledge of Good and Evil. Funny how some people focus on the Good, while others focus on the Evil. Tells a lot about the person, I suppose.
