That Worldnutdaily Logic

I know I spend an inordinate amount of time bashing the Worldnutdaily, but it’s just a constant source of amusement for me. It really is mind-boggling to see how transparently irrational their arguments are and how calculated they are to inflame the emotions of their ignorant readers. Here’s the latest headline that cracks me up:

Ford Backs Homosexual Polygamy

Golly gee, they do? In a society where most gays still can’t get married, Ford supports homosexual polygamy? Do they give free cars to gays who will marry more than one person? Do they put out public service announcements on TV encouraging gay couples to invite a couple friends over for an orgy? Well, no. But they do advertise in major gay magazines – imagine that, a company that actually wants to sell its products to a group of people with large amounts of disposable income – and one of them had an article about gay polygamy. Oh hell, close enough for a bunch of bigots.

    Hey, quit dissin’ the WorldNutDaily! If it weren’t for them, what would Hal Lindsey and all those other failed propheteers do? Go on welfare and mooch off the taxpayers?

    Raging Bee, I wouldn’t be suprised if 3/4ths of their readers are already brain-dead hicks on welfare.

    I think it’s the culture of contamination.
    This funny bunch of people thinks that, if they are exposed to something *bad*, they will be contaminated.

    They see two gay men holding hands and, suddenly, they want to have homosexual intercourse.
    They see an abortion clinic and they feel the urge to abort.
    They see a condom (or hear about it) and instantly feel the need for sex.

    So, if this is the way it works for them, why it is so strange they think it works the same way for all the others people?
    (Maybe because it’s a idiotic idea?)

    To be fair, that’s pretty much true for me… except for the part about needing to see or hear about the condom.

    Well, these are the folks that put the “wild” in Wildmon, after all.

    Sorry to be so OT, but that completely made my day!

    It is hilarious that they are pulling this bash at Ford again. They got Ford to cave to their bigotry only to be drowned out by the voices of people pissed at Ford for caving to bigots. The last time they did this it went from some Ford affiliates adertising in Gay publications to all Ford products being advertised in gay publications. They even started doing targeted adverts instead of using generic ones. Then they sent me an email requesting that I monitor their advertising to make sure they are doing it in an acceptable manner. If they had left well enough alone, Jaguar, Landrover and a couple of other ford lines would have been advertising in gay mags and that would be that – now Ford has gone all out. Can’t wait to see where this goes. . .

    My favorite is the quotes around “gay” in every article and headline.

    Because we all know there isn’t really any such thing as gay…there’s only playacting “gay”. It’s a choice, remember.

    It’s a wonder they don’t also call people “athiests” and “Democrats” etc. Since, in the worldview of the WorldNut, such people are only a temporary aberration on the road to Rapture.

    Personally, I think we should writing about them as “Christians,” so as to distinguish them from actual Christians who have some knowledge about what Jesus (you know, that guy whose teachings are supposed to be the basis for the world-view of everyone claiming to be Christian) actually was supposed to have said. We could probably start modify this with Levitican and “Levitican,” to distinguish those (“)Christians(“) who follow the entirety of the Levitical code, versus those who ignore all of save those parts they think they can conveniently use against others (namely, gays).

    Christians are, in my experience, generally well-meaning people who believe that the Bible shows them how to lead good, moral lives. For “Christians,” however, the Bible is merely a means to an end; something to bludgeon people with when they won’t do what you want them to do. For “Christians” professions of faith are little more than an exhaltation of themselves and a denigration of their fellows.

    For true Christians, the Bible is a way of knowing what you should do. For “Christians,” it is a way of explainaing what you have already done.

    The WorldNetters I’ve known have tended to be of the “Christian” bent, they wouldn’t know what Jesus is supposed to have taught if Jesus himself told them.
