This is funny.
Strong willed Baptist Pastors across this Christian nation have been keeping mum regarding their concerns about the popularity of the new pro-sodomite film, “Brokeback Mountain.” There is an unspoken edict among conservative religious leaders to keep silent their opinions about the film, in hopes to quell the onslaught of misguided popularity that usually follows when such things are rightly protested in the name of God.
The bottled stress from having to keep the Holy Spirit silent about this particular movie became too much for one Pastor earlier this week when Deacon Fred launched into a frenzied fit during dinner among friends at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in downtown Freehold, Iowa. The tantrum left him hospitalized and one church member seriously injured.
… Pastor informed parishioners the following Sunday that he is not going to offer any more thoughts about Brokeback Mountain, other than to say that he is seeking $11 million in damages from the film producers for the personal stress and injuries it continues to cause him and others who were seated nearby him that evening.
It’s satire of course, from an old favorite of mine, Landover Baptist Church (second in hilarity only to Betty Bowers). It wouldn’t’ surprise me, though, if a few of the Brokeback-inspired fits of apoplexy on the right did lead to the occasional heart attack.
Anyway, if you’re inspired to check out Landover, don’t miss The Bible Sex Quiz Part III.
