'WorldNet' headlines: The gifts that keep on deceiving

by Jeremy Hooper

So if you are a conservative news outlet wishing to write a story about an anti-gay preacher who was denied permission to marching the Chicago Pride parade, how would you headline that piece? Well, if you were a writer for the reliably off-base WorldNetDaily, it might go something like this:

Picture 1-79

Oh yes, "no CHristians allowed." The organizers' refusal to allow one man, anti-gay street preacher Ruben Israel, to march in their pro-gay parade (citing a Supreme Court decision that gives organizers the right to edit groups participating in a sponsored parade), has been turned into a ban on ALL Christians. Never mind that being gay and being Christian are not oil and water, with many of the gay who will participate themselves followers of Jesus. No, no -- it's much easier to make it sound like those militant, pesky, God-less gays are once again attacking religion!

Ugh. Just gross!

Be sure to look for future WorldNet headlines as this Pride season rolls on, wherein we predict one event's disallowance of outside food and drink will be spun into an attack on supermarkets worldwide.
