Oliver Willis tweeted a link to this offensive Op-ed in the Washington Moonie Times:
EDITORIAL: The Gay Scouts of America
Pledge to keep ‘morally straight’ threatenedAnd of course, it's pretty much what you would expect: Oh no, the mean old secularists are letting gay guys into our Boys-only neckerchief campout club!
Real Men Only Need Apply
Here is the first comment, which means this guy probably has one of those news alerts set up for the words "Boy Scouts" and "gay," for whatever reason:
Yes, ending decades of discrimination, that's what is pure evil, obviously.
But I guess that makes sense to a right-winger, because they live in a fantasy world. Now I don't know why they would make their fantasy world so scary. In my fantasy world, I'm currently being coronated King of America and World Series MVP. But this is the world in which they have chosen, for some reason, to live. And in this weird parallel universe, things make sense to them that don't add up here in the reality-based world. In order to live in the right-wing fantasy world, you have to believe things like:
Martin Luther King, Jr. was a pinko commie subversive, and if he were alive today, he'd be an NRA-supporting Republican.
Mexican immigrants sneak into this country to get a free ride from the welfare state. And they're stealing our jobs!
America is the strongest, greatest, most powerful country in the history of the world, and we're in constant danger of being completely destroyed by a handful of cave-dwellers with box-cutters!
And every human life is sacred and must be protected. Now let's bomb, bomb, bomb Iran!
