LavenderBob LeatherPants

United States: Fundie pressure group Focus on the Family have unearth another example of the Evil Homosexualist Conspiracy trying to influence our kids into their perverted ways. It seems that several children's TV characters have recorded a single as part of a campaign to promote tolerance and diversity, including Spongebob Squarepants, Bob the Builder and various Muppets. The song chosen is We Are Family, a massive hit for Sister Sledge in the 70s, and still ever so slightly popular in gay venues (but not as popular as Kylie).

This isn't what has upset the fundies though. They are in a tizz because they are convinced that Spongebob SquarePants is a gay icon:

SpongeBob - who appears on the children's cable channel Nickelodeon - is seen as an icon for adult gay men in the US, apparently because he regularly holds hands with his sidekick Patrick.

Nile Rodgers, who wrote the song, is the founder of the We Are Family Foundation, which tries to teach children about co-operation and unity. Mark Barondeso, a WAFF representative, told a newspaper that anyone who thought the video to promote homosexuality needs to visit their doctor and get their medication increased.

Love Me (Satan) Do

A bizarre posting on Indymedia Canarias makes some rather interesting allegations about The Beatles:

John Lennon's divorce followed, as well as his entering the world of black magic, as deeply as to buy the apartment where the Rosemary's baby had been filmed, previous property of Roman Polansky, and in that same apartment John Lennon had a room upholstered with black silk where he used to do his black magic operations.

At the same time, the devil acted through his other main puppets with Sympathy for the devil, that was when the pact of the Rolling Stones with Satan took the life of the founder of the group, guitarist Brian Jones (who refused to be a puppet of the devil), murdered by people sent by Mick Jagger, another assassin, who after wanted the world to believe that such a brilliant swimmer as Brian drowned in his own pool….

Antichrist John Lennon followed the Devil's strategy writing lyrics such as God is a concept by which we measure our pain...I don't believe in Jesus, etc., etc., (God) and and no religions too...(Imagine).

Obviously George Harrison is dead because God killed him to punish him for his Hindu beliefs, but our anonymous, multuple-personality correspondent forgets to stick to defaming the dead, and starts to project his own insecurities onto Paul McCartney

Paul admitted that he made Linda suffer a lot, but he didn't say that it was because he felt insecure as a man due to his womanish face and effeminate manners and also because with his age his sexual power was not the same, even though it has never been much. The early days were the days of competition between Paul and his wife and John and his wife and he knew he had to compete with ugly John for the leadership of the band in front of their wives and having Yoko Ono made him aware of his lack of virility and repressed homosexuality, he grew the beard that we see in the "Let it Be" film and started to show pictures of naked women on the same film, doing every effort he could to be seen as a man.... It is easy to note the uneasiness of McCartney when he sings: "I've got a feeling, a feeling I can't hide..." in front of Yoko in the film. (He already had the traumas that his previous girlfriend Jane Asher had caused him when she made him conscious of his little manliness and effeminate manners).

Paul has such a big inferiority complex as a man, due to his effeminate face, body and personality and due to his repressed homosexuality that he found himself a handicapped woman with only one leg, so that he could stand out, being very conscious that a full woman would make him feel the superiority of virile men again, as Jane and Linda did. This is something that his ego trip of lucky bad musician could not face anymore….He is very conscious that money and fame cannot buy virility and manliness.

Ringo Starr is not mentioned before we reach the inevitable barking-mad fundie conclusion:

After the Devil began his devastating job from the ghostly Devil's Island through his nine main puppets (Beatles-Rolling Stones), he possessed an endless amount of other schizophrenic bad musicians in the afore mentioned Island and weakening their conscience with drugs, he made them proclaimers of homosexuality, aversion to religion, destruction of family values, dissipation, mental illness, antisocial tendencies, etc., etc.,

The fact that bad apprentice musicians such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones achieved such a giant fame that not even the real quality musicians could achieve, was because the forces of Satan were behind everything, supporting the process.

This mentally ill humanity, destroyed families, twisted moral values, manifest or repressed homosexuality in human beings, anti natural feminism rebellion, drug addiction, corrupt social outlines, mad youths without direction, non respect to hierarchies, convulsed nations, misanthropy, misogyny, paedophilia, irrational and feeble lasciviousness and all other type of existent aberrations, are due to the vast manoeuvre that Satan executed through his main marionettes the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, from the Devil's Island.

If you wonder why there is misery and curse in your house, it is because you own some L.P, CD or another article related to the CURSED BY GOD Beatles and Rolling Stones. We recommend you to take that curse out of your house throwing away everything related to the Devil's main nine puppets....

Note: I'm not going to make any sarcastic comments about 'Christian English' here as the writer is clearly not a native English speaker. If you read Spanish and find a Spanish-language version which shows the traditional illiteracy, do let us know.

The Great Tsunami Conspiracy List

Red Wolf has been hard at work collecting tsunami conspiracies, and I've been working somewhat less diligently to add a few more. Here are the fruits of our labours:

Ignore those gods, it was aliens.

The Turkish press has a summary of conspiracy theories concerning the recent Tsumani. Take this one, recently published in India Daily (which seems to be going the Pravda route):

Recent alien contacts have been reported with the South Asian Governments especially India. UFO sightings have been rampant over the region affected, [Sudhir] Chadda wrote.

Some in Nicobar Island say that it was an experiment conducted by the alien extra-terrestrial entities to correct the wobbly rotation of the earth. And some of the Indian scientists are actually seeing that wobbly rotation of the earth has been corrected since the massive underwater earthquake and Tsunami.

And, according to an India Daily editorial, the aliens tried to warn people about this:

Was it a coincidence? Lots of people now from the Tsunami and earthquake hit areas are reporting about strange Unidentified Flying Objects they saw a few days before the mega quake and Tsunami. People in Indian state of Tamil Nadu, Andaman and Nicobar Island as well as many in Indonesia were reporting for some time about strange flying objects in the sky

Conspiracy theorists see dark forces behind tsunami disaster - Turkish Press, 6th January 2005 (or 11th January 2005); An enormous number of UFO sightings before Tsunami and earthquake in South and Southeast Asia – were they trying to warn? - India Daily, 31st December 2004 (check out that site's 'technology' section for more tsumani conspiracies).
