Everybody Loves a Parade

Welcome back, everybody. We hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

While you were out enjoying Thanksgiving Day with friends and family, James Dobson’s Focus on the Family was out trying to “save” gays and lesbians at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. (Really, we aren’t making this stuff up!)

Seems members of the Christian group handed out thousands of promotional items referring parade-goers to a Focus on the Family website dedicated to, among other things, curing homosexuals through (what else?) evangelical Christianity.

“You’re not simply ‘wired that way,’” the website says. “Like other adult problems, homosexuality begins at home.”

As such, Focus on the Family maintains that there are many potential causes of homosexuality, including all but WHICH of the following?

A) Porn
B) The media
C) Seduction by peers
D) Faulty parenting
E) Tight jeans

E) Tight jeans. Although given some of the “science” the site refers to while backing up its claims (remember, these are the people who think that the earth is less than 10,000 years old), it’s only a matter of time before a link between homosexuality and Gap jeans is firmly established.
