DURST: Baptists Boycott Disney

The Southern Baptist Corporation overwhelmingly approved a boycott of the Walt Disney Co. to protest what church leaders say are the company's gay friendly policies. Baptists don't like friendly people. No, they believe in an ornery vengeful Jesus with oozing blisters rubbing against the straps of his sandals and are quite willing to go to whatever lengths it takes in order to keep people who think differently than them from being treated equally. Even if it means such twisted self flagellating actions as visiting Davenport, Iowa instead of Orlando, Florida or prohibiting their children from watching reruns of "DuckTales." This action is based on previously unreleased Biblical tales of when Jesus and the boys went to a seaside village cafe called The Caanan Whip and bashed themselves a club full of gays who made fun of Jesus' bleeding feet. I think we can expect further boycotts by the Southern Baptist Corporation such as one targeting Girl Scouts for selling cookies where the dark chocolate surrounds the white colored nougat. Then Spielberg will be marked for E.T. and his glorification of an alien that looks like genitals with eyes. We can only gawk open mouthed at these brave Christian soldiers making this incredible stand against tolerance.Will Durst only hopes other religions can learn from this gallant example.
