AH! HELP!! OUR TOTALLY NON-SATIRICAL ATTEMPT TO DESTROY MARRIAGE HAS BEEN FOUND!

by Jeremy Hooper

The following comes from John-Henry Westen, the Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of LifesiteNews.com:

Dear Friends,

"Destroy the Traditional Family: The Game"

No, we're not joking. This game is real, and you can play it on this website: http://www.goodasyou.org/good_as_you/2007/09/destroy-traditi.html

Participants can use the cursor (shaped like a target) to click on images of happy traditional families, and watch as bombs fall onto the collage of smiling portraits, leaving only a black crater in their wake!

And
we're the intolerant bigots?

Of course we realize that the people behind the website have no intention of actually bombing families. But what it does make clear is what LifeSiteNews.com has been saying for years:

Very influential, well-funded people are trying to destroy the traditional family.

Jennifer Aniston and Destruction of the Family [LifeSite]

Yup, that's right: Our three-year-old attempt to diffuse the overheated "culture war" rhetoric via a game that spoofs the far-right's "gays destroy marriage" talking points is now being spun as an actual attack. Our cartoony bombs, tongue-in-cheek text, and obviously non-personal stock photo quilt: It's all "proof" that we're the real bigots (a word that this site *never* uses, by the way). Here we always thought a five-year-old could see that our point was to defuse the typically incendiary "marriage war" bombs with silliness, using the whole "laugh so as not to cry" thing that we're know for doing around these parts. But apparently an editor of a major conservative website either can't or won't. So typical.

But hey, at least Mr. Westen considers us influential and well-funded.

*UPDATE: Even "pro-Family" leaders get the intent

*EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: GOD WEIGHS IN ON THIS CRUCIAL CULTURE WAR DEBATE!
