Anti-gay bias: It's getting quite comical

by Jeremy Hooper

200807171359Producers of Batman: If you're looking for a new comic book to convert into a summer blockbuster, you might wanna look to Oklahoma County Commissioner Brent Rinehart. For we have just learned from our pal Andy Towle that Mr. Rinehart, as part of his re-election campaign, is preparing to mail out a 16-page comic wherein, among other things, "anal sodomy" is references and Satan is depicted as trying to convince people that homosexuality is normal.

Check out Towleroad for the details:

**UPDATE: Boing Boing has a few pages from the comic

**UPDATE, 7/21: Video: Batman, Iron Man, Unapologetically Homo-Hostile Man -- It's the summer of comics!! [G-A-Y]

Your thoughts

Awesome. Shows their true feelings - their hatred. This whole "we love homosexuals" crap is finally going away.

I don't know what's more offensive the comic or an elected official who can't spell: ‘Pedaphiles’

Or "We're here, we're queer, get use to it."

Should be, "We're here, we're queer, get useD to it." Idiot forgot the D.

And while we're at it, who drew this thing - a 3rd grader???

Just downloaded the entire comic and found it to be nothing but childish. The spelling errors made this English teacher cringe. How dumb do they grow them out there?

Why do they even bother calling themselves "evangelicals" anymore? This is pentecostal crap. Back home, it wasn't unusual to get several of those silly pentecostal comic books on Halloween night. Now the evangelicals have been borrowing THEIR backwoods batshittery the past few years.

Next thing you know, they'll be handling snakes in the White House. Wait a minute.....gay neo-con Jeff Gannon ALREADY does that!

Just wondering if Sally Kern has asked him to do one for her!

"Just wondering if Sally Kern has asked him to do one for her!"

She IS in the comic....I think?

Isn't she the badly-drawn female appearing in most of the drawings? The one who looks like your average everyday female trailer park supervisor?
