Interesting Bible translation

United States: The Socastee Original Freewill Baptist Church in Myrtle Beach has a nice, friendly sign outside:

If perverts and liberals can flood the news with homosexual mess - I can say this - they will burn in hell. Romans 1:32.

STOP laughing at them

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.

No crystal ball required to see this one coming

United States: Jamiel Terry is the adopted son of Randall Terry, best known for his leadership of the anti-abortion terror group Operation Rescue. These days, Randall has been campaigning against civil rights for homosexuals. So it comes as no surprise to the residents at Prattle Towers to learn that Jamiel just came out, much to the distress of his good, Christian father:

I am still in a state of shock; I have been grieving for days. My son, Jamiel Terry, was paid $5,000 by Out magazine (to appear April 20, 2004, on newsstands) to write a story about being Randall Terry's homosexual son. I pray my following words help other grieving parents and serve as a warning to moms and dads of small children to be unflinchingly and unashamedly diligent to protect their children from predators, and bring a reality check to those exploiting my son.

It seems that his son is a screaming stereotype, too. Surely Randall must have guessed?

Jamiel is incredibly gifted. He is articulate and handsome. He sings like an angel, he plays the piano, he's a great cook, and he's a great debater... People like him. I love him. I've poured 16 years of my life into him.

After complaining at length about financial discussions within the family, Randall has the audacity to whinge He sold out our family's privacy and private discussions for cold cash. Can you imagine a family member doing that to you? Presumably giving it away for free to a fundie website is okay. My prodigal son, the homosexualWorld Net Daily, 9th April 2004 (via Ex-Gay Watch).

Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Zanzibar: The Muslim loons in charge of the East African tourist trap have outlawed homosexuality in an attempt to preserve its culture. Which is a little odd, given that Zanzibar's only cultural export worth mentioning was an openly bisexual, Zoroastrian rock star.
