Wildmon says gays 'slip it' into TV; we say, 'ouch, that sounds painful'

by Jeremy Hooper

  On the Oct. 11 broadcast of the American Family Radio program Today's Issues (the same edition on which the Rev. Louis Sheldon suggested exorcisms as a way to "release" gays from their gayness), host Tim Wildmon (pic.) shared the following interchange with a caller:

CALLER: I just wanted to make a comment that you really, really, really have to watch what you are watching on TV. I have come upon evidence of homosexuality and lesbian people on programs like HGTV and Animal Planet, where you really don't expect this to be an issue.

WILDMON: Right. You're very perceptive, [caller], because that does happen, even in the most innocent of places. You have to watch out for children's programs today as well because they'll slip it in there as well.

Upon hearing this, Satan immediately called us, and we shared this exchange:

MEPHISTOPHOLES: Good As, my man, can you believe how crazy mean and outlandish these folks have become with their attacks on you guys?

GOOD AS YOU: It's nuts, right? I mean Devil, you're one evil son of a bitch, but you just want our souls and what not. These people seemingly won't rest until they totally wreck our lives.

MEPHISTOPHOLES: Well I calls 'em like I sees 'em - I check out how people act on Earth and judge them on the basis of these actions, and not on stuff that they had nothing to do with and can't change. That'd just be wrong.

GOOD AS YOU: Right on. Now if you'll excuse me, Beezlebub, HGTV's "Makeover a Room, Then Enjoy a Little Sodomy" is coming on, so....

MEPHISTOPHOLES: Ooh, is that on now? I've got Animal Planet's "Shih Tzus Who Enjoy Melissa Etheridge" Tivoed, so I think I'll check that out.

GOOD AS YOU: Cool. Well, hope to never talk to you again, Prince of Darkness.

MEPHISTOPHOLES: Keep living right, my man, and you have no worries.
