STOP laughing at them

by Feòrag

Canada: It's not only Chinese newspapers falling for stories in The Onion—fundies are too, and they don't have the excuse that English is not their first language, or that they are dealing with material from a culture other than the one they live in.

A homophobic organisation, STOP (Simply Truths Our Priority) presented a dossier to support their objection to London, Ontario, schools being a safe place for gay students. Among the 'evidence' was 98 Homosexual-Recruitment Drive Nearing Goal, from our second-favourite satirical publication, which claims:

SAN FRANCISCO--Spokespersons for the National Gay & Lesbian Recruitment Task Force announced Monday that more than 288,000 straights have been converted to homosexuality since Jan. 1, 1998, putting the group well on pace to reach its goal of 350,000 conversions by the end of the year.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of our missionaries nationwide, in the first seven months of 1998, nearly 300,000 heterosexuals were ensnared in the Pink Triangle, said NGLRTF co-director Patricia Emmonds. Clearly, the activist homosexual lobby is winning.

Emmonds credited much of the recruiting success to the gay lobby's infiltration of America's public schools, where programs promoting the homosexual lifestyle are regularly presented to children as young as 5.

Anne Haight reports STOP's response, which, she notes, shows the real level of clueless that is operating here:

We knew it was a gay paper and we hold that even as a joke, the gay community is proud of their advancements into the safe schools program in the U.S., she said.

She thinks the Onion is a gay newspaper.

Haight also reprints her e-mail correspondence with STOP, in which they claim that the remaining 297 pages of the dossier are factual, and properly referenced. Anti-gay Parents Say Satire = EvidenceEx-Gay Watch 18th April 2004; STOP Taking The Onion SeriouslyHaight Speech, 8th April 2004.
