Video: 'Homosexuality was invented by Hollywood in 1928, I think'
We're pretty sure this parody. But considering the ridiculous rhetoric that's so frequently used against us, who the hell knows anymore:
I'm not convinced that this is a parody.
and that is quite a number of amazing things that his bible says; mine doesn't say quite the same thing.
Jesus quizzed people on being gay before he healed them?
a book (bible) has no reason to lie to people, therefore it must be true?
Jesus would never grow a beard because that's one of the muslim's stupid rules?
and the big gap in this youtube sermon: the Bible (over 2000 years old) condemns a future sin (being gay) which as everyone knows was invented by Hollywood to be featured in a bad movie.

I don't think it's parody either. Look at his subscriptions, that gives you all the info you need.

The Oscars were also invented in 1928.
I think not!

And I don't think it's parody either. It's easy to think things like this video may be parody because it is so over-the-top nutty. Most of America still doesn't realize that millions of fundamentalist Christians really are that nutty. The stories and comments on American Family Association's OneNewsNow website should be required reading for all Americans.

I finally made time to watch this.
I don't think this is parody. As someone else noted, he's a fan of "Way of the Master." Anyone who has seen even a portion of that show would know that this guy is echoing their sentiments almost perfectly. And besides, I'd expect a parody to be delivered with less deadpan seriousness. And he had to keep correcting himself...."If I was gay, I wouldn't admit it...Well, I'd never be gay..."
A few things I found humorous:
The admission that people should "let the Bible do the thinking for them."
The suggestion that a book can't lie. So I assume this kid also believes that the Olympian gods influenced the battle of Troy. I mean, why would the Iliad lie to us?
The suggestion that Jesus wouldn't have a beard because he wouldn't want people to think he's a Muslim. Somehow, I have a hard time imagining that Jesus would worry about being mistaken for an adherent of a religion that wouldn't even come into existence until five centuries later. And again, the fact that this person doesn't even draw attention to the fact that he's spouting such nonsense suggests to me that he's not doing parody.
