Paul RevileQueer

This, an apparent mockup of Paul Revere's famous ride, is an actual, undoctored photo that the Family Research Council just put up on their site:

How historically nutty! Apparently the Boston Tea Party was too complicated, both in terms of aesthetics and figuring out how one could possibly spin the "no taxation without representation" imagery in a way that put the side of anti-gay tyranny in the favorable light.

But hey, we do totally get why they'd have such a strong need to put up this particular image. If we spent our work hours hurting and demonizing good and decent LGBT people, by the end of the day we too would probably feel like a horse's ass.

Your thoughts

The FRC guy is pointing in the same direction as the horse's ass. What does that tell you?

Ass backwards I'd call it. Strange looking horse too.

Without the revolutionary war parlance, the image could (metaphorically at least) typify the fundies who look back toward a farcically idyllic past, trying frantically (and fruitlessly) to alter the course of destiny (the name of my horse too) which continues galloping into a future in which their notions are as antiquated as that mode of transportation is.
