Pharyngula

Falwell may be dead, but his legacy continues. In fact, if I believed in demonic possession, I’d say his fiendish soul has popped into the body of a Polish woman (Kinky! Perhaps he had sublimated desires which he now indulges), Ewa Sowinska. Sowinska is a “chilren’s rights watchdog”, and she is concerned about a certain popular children’s program.

In comments reminiscent of criticism by the late U.S. evangelist Jerry Falwell, she was quoted as saying: “I noticed (Tinky Winky) has a lady’s purse, but I didn’t realize he’s a boy.”

“At first I thought the purse would be a burden for this Teletubby … Later I learned that this may have a homosexual undertone.”

And the government responds!

Polish Education Minister Roman Giertych has proposed laws sacking teachers who promote “homosexual lifestyle” and banning “homo-agitation” in schools.

Hmmm. Giertych, Giertych, Giertych…that name rings a bell. Oh, yeah…he’s that Polish creationist!

Isn’t it kind of amazing how multiple kinds of ignorance tend to cluster in certain individuals? It’s like they’re just stupid or something.

    Tinky-Winky is gay?
    Next you’ll be telling me that LaLa has married Richard Dawkins.

    To be fair, those from religious backgrounds do know the most about corrupting the young.

    It’s unfortunate that they tend to see the entire world in terms of ‘good’ versus ‘bad’ propaganda.

    Thanks for that mena. Josh is an idiot. Note his idictment of ‘Islamofascism’ (thanks, Rush!) for violent behaviour but nonchalanant dismissal of similar charges against Xianity with ‘yawn, more old testament stuff, we’ve been over this before.’

    It makes such perfect sense when you’re divinely right!

    “Next you’ll be telling me that LaLa has married Richard Dawkins.”

    Ah, but they are married. Ever since 1992. Although, it is a surprise to me that Lalla Ward is a Tellitubby…
