Friday Fundamentalist Farce File – 2/18/2011

The Friday Fundamentalist Farce File is a week’s worth of “news” clippings from conservative hubs like WorldNetDaily and the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow. Millions of Americans absorb these messages as gospel truth—literally—on a daily basis.

The Funniest AFA Complaint I’ve Ever Read

An American Family Association “Action Alert”: The Fox broadcast network featured bestiality on the program American Dad that aired over your public airwaves on Sunday night, January 3rd.

Don’t Read Harry Potter and Don’t Shop at Gap/Diversity Is a Cancer

I really didn’t expect to be writing about this regularly. Honestly. But, this is too good… I wrote last week about the American Family Association’s boycott of Gap, Inc. Just as a reminder, the AFA took umbrage that Gap would not specifically cater to Christianity by taking what Gap called a more inclusive approach. How […]
