Baiting the Fundies

by shamanic

Cernig just e-mailed me a link to Reason Magazine's write up of the art for the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco. It's a big leather last supper, yo!

Entirely missing what makes a thing funny, Andrew Sullivan suggests that next year, they do a parody of a Muslim sacred scene. Andrew, parody only works as comedy when it's identifiable. If the audience has no idea what's being parodied, it's merely puzzling. Give it a rest for once - the art is funny, provocative, and effective. The groups that make money off of Christian outrage protest events like this anyway, so what's the big deal?

Best comment in the Reason thread: "It should be noted that there are more exChristians than exgays. And you rarely find an exChristian 'accidentally' frequenting a hangout for Christians. "

Oh, and Chris Crain continues to be the worst gay journalist alive.
