Marriage ban supporters demand apology for Prop 8 musical starring Jack Black

Wow! Up is down, black is white, and the religious bullies that spent millions of dollars and untold man hours to strip marriage rights and dignity from thousands of gay and lesbian Californians are now claiming to be the victims and demanding an apology!

Am I missing something here? I feel like I am living in an alternate universe.

What could possibly have turned these gay-bashing street thugs into boo-hooing little wimps screaming for mommy? Well you'll never believe it. A low-budget video that they claim "mocks" them. (I posted about the video here)

Well BOO frickin HOO! These thin-skinned boobs deserve a hell of a lot more than mocking (although mocking is a good start).

My complete state of disbelief at this latest turn of events has rendered me speechless, so without further comment, I present to you their pathetic demand for an apology:

In a short video posted on FunnyorDie.com entitled, "Prop 8 The Musical," an all star cast of Hollywood celebrities perform a low budget musical farce that defames Christ, mocks Christians and distorts the teaching of the Bible.

"Jack Black should remember from his days at Hebrew School that homosexual acts aren't funny and are roundly condemned in the Bible," said Dr. Gary Cass, of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission. "Appearing as a sarcastic, rotund Christ, Black distorts the Bible and condones shameful, homosexual acts. Associating Christ with perverse activity is an affront to all people of faith, especially Christians. Apparently Black and company find it hilarious to falsely accuse Christians while they intentionally distort the Bible. Black ought to apologize."
Unbelievable...

And while we are on the subject of the video, here is Keith Olberman interviewing Jack Black and the musical stars of the Prop 8 musical on Countdown:

I can't say as I'm surprised by their reaction. To recycle an observation the late Gerald Gardner once made about the Puritans, these folks seem to enjoy getting worked up and taking offense.

Of course, I suspect that what they're really upset about -- as often seems to be the case -- is the cold hard reality that they want to make an exclusive claim on Jesus (as if he can be "owned" by one group or another) and this video makes it clear that such a claim is completely baseless.

I need to make a mental note to watch the full musical tonight at home.
