A Little Weekend Funny

I don't know where this came from originally. I got it, referenced as coming from a newsletter of some sort, and written by a person named Alex Elliott. Alex, wherever you are, this is great, and I hope you don't mind me reproducing it here. This was just too good, too fun.

We remember that Robert Knight, who's mentioned in this piece, was one of the speakers at the CRC's March town hall meeting. Those people like to accuse the Montgomery County School Board of promoting the "gay agenda." As a CRC inner-core member put it in the discussions that were sent to us:
Lets not forget that this "quasi" elected board, immediately after the nationwide election which trounced the homosexual agenda, instituted a profoundly pro-gay curriculum.

So it is fun to hear how this guy views the latest nutiness from Focus on the Family.

... is that how you spell it? Nutiness? Nuttiness? Oh, never mind ... Here's Alex:
So here's the latest painfully earnest alarum from our friends at Focus on the HomosFamily:
Johnson & Johnson will be advertising its brand, Tylenol PM, in the July 19 issue of The Advocate, a leading gay magazine.

The ad shows two shirtless men in bed side by side. The text over one reads: 'His backache is keeping him up.' Over the other: 'His boyfriend's backache is keeping him up.'

Johnson & Johnson has been advertising in gay media since 1996. Robert Knight, director of the Culture and Family Institute, said people need to take notice.

'A lot of corporate America has bought into the idea that they can secretly promote homosexuality without their consumers noticing out there,' he said.

Personally, I would think that this ad promotes the purchase and consumption of Tylenol PM, not homosexuality. And it's in a gay magazine - read almost exclusively by people who are already pretty much sold on the whole homosexuality thing (plus the Good and Vigilant people at FotF, of course, who seem unable to tear their eyes away from such filth).

I guess we're supposed to imagine that little Jimmy Towhead will innocently pick this magazine up off the newsstand, skip over the numerous articles about homosexuality and photographs of dozens and dozens of actual homosexuals with no ill effect, see this ad, and say, Gosh - homosexuals get backaches. I want to be homosexual so I can get backaches too! and bam! he's caught The Gay.

That's not the funniest part though. This is the funniest part:
Mike Haley, director of the gender issues department at Focus on the Family, said the gay and lesbian community has a lot of expendable income, so they are targeting big corporations who are caving to their pressure.

Apparently the FotF people live in some fantasy world where the Johnson & Johnson executives are all like, We don't want to make any profit if it comes from homosexuals, and the Evil Gay Millionaires are all like, No, you must advertise to us! Cave to our pressure! and the J&J execs are totally like, No! Gay profit bad! Money bad! and the EGMs are like, Bwahahah! You must sell us Tylenol PM or we will destroy you in some mysterious way unspecified by Focus on the Family!! and the execs are all, Oh no, we submit! We are forced to make money and delight our shareholders against our will! Woe is us!!

Or something like that. Morons.


Uh, Alex, we don't call them "morons." They seem to get offended if you even call them "nuts." Like you, we often finding ourselves wondering -- just what in the world are those people thinking???

I listened to the town hall meeting MP3s that are proudly displayed on the CRC website.

Such rubbish.

They try to yell about anything that even remotely mentions "The Gay".

If they weren't such Bible (Insert a word that is synonymous with "female dogs" here), then I'd like to hear their argument against homosexuality.

The CRC people really need a proper hobby.

I am home nursing a child who has just had 4 wisdom teeth removed. Thank goodness, I read this - now when the anesthesia wears off- I will not give her Tylenol. I am going to call FOTF and find out who else advertises in that magazine(and others like it-I bet FOTF has the largest number of subscriptions to gay publicatins- except for Tres Kerns)- maybe I won't be able to give my child Advil either or feed her soup- maybe companies that make those things advertise to gay people too!!
