“Fight on, fight on, dear old Muncie…”

Backfiring for Christ:

Organisers of a mardi gras party say ticket sales have soared since church groups complained of drunk and lewd behaviour. Co-ordinators of the mardi gras in Muncie, Indiana, report calls for tickets from as far as Chicago and Cincinnati. It comes after local pastor John Tyner appeared on network TV to discuss local faith-based objections to the event. Event coordinator Cheryl Crowder told the Star Press: "There's no way we could pay for that exposure."
Obviously I had to go find out just where this doofus appeared to protest against a Mardi Gras party in Muncie fricking Indiana, which is not exactly known as a hotbed of sin.

Where else? The O’Reilly Factor, of course.

John Tyner appeared on Fox News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor last week..

Faith-based opponents will have a prayer meeting at 6 p.m. Friday in Christ Temple Church at 654 N. Jefferson St., to rally for their cause. Many churches have put up No Mardi Gras yard signs this month, displaying their objections to what they describe as drunken and lewd behavior at the celebration.
They’ll also have a prayer walk on Saturday at 10 a.m. to bring attention to their cause. Hopefully no one will be injured tripping over the passed-out bodies in the gutters.

Tyner even went so far as to produce “a video of last year's event that showed public intoxication and indecent exposure, both misdemeanor offenses.” If filming college girls baring their breasts doesn’t prove how serious he is about ending the deviant spectacle of “Muncie Gras,” I just don’t know what would.

Man, I love Indiana.
