God Hates Fags

I was naive enough to believe this was a prank: http://www.godhatesfags.com/.  It's not. 

I wag my finger and remind Christians that God originally intended to obliterate everyone in Sodom and Gomorrah, including the faithful man Lot and his family.  Only after Abraham pleaded ... I want to say a stronger word ... after Abraham negotiated  to spare Lot's family did God change his original, 'all of them die' intentions. (Gensis 18)  So the minister who picketed Matthew Shepard's funeral would have down in the fireball with the other fags in town.  Proximal obliteration man, sorry.

One of my high school friends started a seemingly contradictory foundation a few years ago: http://www.gaychristian.net.  Hit that up, haters.
