I-35 Saves!

Some people can crack open the Bible and find just about anything. Jeff Baldwin opened Isaiah to chapter 35 and decided to that Interstate 35, which runs from Lorado, Texas to Duluth, Minnesota would be the Highway to Holiness.

Isaiah 35, I-35 — get it? Anyway they’re set to clear cities along the entire stretch of the highway of gays. And so far, they’re claiming far better success than Exodus ever dreamed of.

That’s not the first time I’ve heard claims of instantaneous “cures” for homosexuality. I wonder if Jones and Yarhouse will be looking into this?

Uh oh, I can hear that cuckoo-clock again… Methinks this is taking biblical literalism a little too far, even for the radical extremists portrayed in the video. Time to break out the Zyprexa wafers, Nurse…

A drunk gay teenager, on his way to see his fiancee (presumably female) falls backward when someone touches him while yelling. His desires to be with guys is now reduced and he is now the trophy for the “I-35” movement. Right. Unfortunately, it looks like troubled times ahead for that young man. Obviously, I am of little faith in what is being said by Pat and this movement.

Christians setting people on fire for god?That is a rather scary metaphor.Haven’t we already seen this play out?

Let’s see – the I-35W bridge in Downtown Minneapolis collapsed into the Mississippi River. Did God do it or was it the Devil? (Just asking.)

this almost made me fall out of my chair laughing. It reminds me of the segment the daily show used to run called “God Stuff”.

I live within a block of I-35, and have spent the last three years commuting an hour and a half a day on it.

I’ll let you know if I feel anything. :D

Biblical literalism taken to new extremes. It somehow makes the people who use to snicker when I told them I lived a block away from I-69 sound mature and well-balanced. This is just plain weird.

So THAT’s the solution.

Gosh, no wonder the other efforts were not working. Here Exodus has been praying while yelling “Earth” or “Wind”.

They’ve just got to change the magic word.

What a great way to sell the NAU/NAFTA Supercorridor – they are afterall one and the same – what a coincidence! Just slap God on it and usher in the evangelicals. Better not desecrate such sacred land with commerce then – remember Jesus threw the merchants out of the temple. Probably the same ministers who’ve installed ATMs in their churches – hypocrites. How else would they ever get the American people to accept it and give up our sovereignty? Next up – Stay tune for the Amero – the new form of currency.

In this original BTB Investigation, we unveil the tragic story of Kirk Murphy, a four-year-old boy who was treated for “cross-gender disturbance” in 1970 by a young grad student by the name of George Rekers.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people. This report will be updated continuously as events continue to unfold. Check here for the latest updates.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
