Your yard is becoming RELENTLESSLY GAY

Update: this could be faked; see karmacat’s comment.

The butterfly on Taslima is no fake though. I was there, and they really were landing on people.

Another item from the Annals of Bigotry – the kind of bigotry that leads, at the extremes, to murders like the ones at the Charleston AME church, and the ones at Charlie Hebdo, and the ones in Bangladesh.

My friend found this note taped to her door after hanging some colorful jar lights in her yard with her daughters. She’s responding to this nonsense with whimsy and has started a campaign to paint her whole house in rainbows — is there any chance you might share her info?

— with Julie Baker in Baltimore, Maryland.

Dear Resident of [REDACTED] Avenue,

Your yard is becoming Relentlessly Gay! Myself and Others in the neighborhood ask that you Tone it Down. This is a Christian area and there are Children. Keep it up and I will be forced to call the police on You! Your kind need to have Respect for GOD.

Later Eleanor Justice posted a photo of the lights:

So pretty, so festive, so friendly and neighborly and decorative and colorful and indeed gay – it’s fascinating to learn that they’re haram in Christianity. Fascinating, but more horrifying: hatred of color and decoration and art and joy is anti-human. Why invent a god that hates pretty things? Does god hate flowers and butterflies and tropical birds too?

Speaking of butterflies…Sunday afternoon at the Butterfly Conservatory:

    I hope CHO never goes to a cathedral with stained glass windows. Their head would probably explode.

    “Hello? Baltimore City Police? Stop investigating those shootings last night and get over here. My neighbor’s yard is GAY! … Hello? Hello?”

    Concerned Home Owner needs to remember Who invented the rainbow.

    Well, it was mostly Pete Townshend, but I think Roger Daltrey contributed some of the blues.

    and there are children
    That’s the real scary part. What will become of those children with parents like that?

    Huh? Wha? Um?
    Decoration in rainbow hues is now reserved for queer folk?
    And is the equivalent of 69ing garden gnomes?
    That’ll be a bummer for my niece, who is super into Rainbow Brite (alas, the weird reboot from last year, not the proper Rainbow Brite of her aunt’s childhood)
    and wants rainbow decoration for her upcoming birthday.
    She’ll be devastated when I tell her she can’t have any rainbows because of
    OMG Teh Geyh!11!! Why, she might even ask me what “gay” means!
    Won’t someone please think of the children?

    I was talking to people on facebook and someone mentioned that the situation is suspicious and may not be true and could be a way of getting money. I guess it is best to take this with a bit of grain of salt

    I find it troubling that a “free thought” blog has so few skeptics. With a little research and a bit of skepticism it becomes clear that this whole thing is a hoax.
