Crazy People

Following up on Andy's story in The Blogaround, there's yet another group of far-right evangelicals that are out there proclaiming that Teh Gays are planning to take over the world. This time it's West Virginia. Seriously. (West Virginia has its charms, but come on. Key West it ain't.) Ben Smith has the story.

These people are skating into Fred Phelps territory, leaving the idea of anything connected with Christianity as most people understand it so far behind it will take the light from it five years to catch up. Targeting straight people (at the 0:57 mark) with a sniper scope? What kind of sick shit is that?

Pam Spaudling has more, as does Christy Hardin Smith.

HT to Steve.
