It's a bird, it's a plane, it's -- offensive dogma

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 11-36

The vehemently anti-gay folks at Americans For Truth, Mission America, and the Family Policy Network have announced that during this weekend's pride parades in Atlanta, Columbus, and Chicago, they will fly planes with banners over the outdoor events.

And what will these banners say, you ask? Well, they will encourage participants to visit an "ex-gay" website so that they can repent for their evil gay ways and "change" their sexual orientations, natch:

Hope for Change Flies Over “Gay Pride” Parades in Georgia, Illinois and Ohio This Weekend [FPN]

Because, of course, skywriting might have made them look silly.

But the worst part of the whole thing, in our opinion: The banner is TOTALLY gonna block God's view of the festivities! ::sigh:: And he had such a heavenly seat, too!

Your thoughts

I'll be out and proud in Atlanta this weekend. I'll try to snap a few pics if I can and send them to y'all.

Skywriting might have made them look much closer to who they really are - the Wicked Witch of the West.
