Quote of the week

Now you cannot understand anything about fascist doctrine if you do not understand that their central claim was that liberalism is antidemocratic; in other words, the fascists claimed that liberal institutions cannot represent the will of the people. They further claimed that their typical institutions, particularly the party, were more effective means to represent the will of the people. So fascists were “authoritarian democrats.”

Hateful Homophobia in song

At first, the following video seems quite shocking because it presents hatefully homophobic attitudes as a kind and reasoned Christian-inspired view of homosexuality. It seems to be a reminder that there are plenty of Christian fanatics out there. But then as I watched it I began to laugh because, really, how ridiculously stupid can one song’s lyrics be? Check out the section where he sings “there is no back door” – to heaven, that is!

Newsflash! Andrew Sullivan reports on his Blog that this video is indeed a parody and not for real. Had me fooled.
