Stupid article of the day. Warning: LONG!

Warning, long post with a link to an article and a video. If you have anything resembling a life, FLEE NOW! Go to this instead: http://fuldans.se/?v=hocrywyhlx

I was randomly derping across the internet when I found an article at http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4190699.stm which basically talks about the ultra-conservative minority of Christianity was having much butt-hurt over a video being shown in elementary schools.It even quotes Paul Batura, a member of Focus on the Family saying “We see the video as an insidious means by which the organisation is manipulating and potentially brainwashing kids”

I was curious, so I looked up the video, and found it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnD8BYjZiW0 . I wasn’t sure what I was expecting, but instead of finding Spongebob making out with Patrick, I found all of my favorite television characters from when I was a kid from Disney Channel, Nick, PBS, and a few other places singing to the tune of that song about “We are Family” (I don’t know the name, sorry.) I felt like crying manly tears of happiness inside for having my childhood validated.

But that’s just my opinion. However, my opinion has never reliably correlated to the public opinion, so I wanted to get some perspective. What do you guys think? I just want to hear your thoughts so if you have anything to say about the article, the video, the Focus on the Family group, and/or whatever.

That’s about it. Sorry about the super long post (I ramble a lot) and if this seems like an obvious troll post (it’s not supposed to be, I just thought it was a good example of Poe’s law.) And remember, stereotypes are bad, so try to avoid making assumptions or you’ll look stupid. And if you are a real masochist, there’s an extra optional paragraph of commentary for you below!

Personally, I thought this was so absurd it reminded me of when North Korea used footage from Modern Warfare 3 (which was created by 2 AMERICAN companies) to continue their propaganda campaign. I mean, everyone has the right to believe what they want, but come on, you still need to share reality with everyone else.

I have seen the video, and yeah, i didn’t see any suspicious of being controversial or subliminal. There’s always going to be people that see conspiracies everywhere, overreacts for everything or they just like arguing and raging.

You should know this. After all, you are on the Internet.

I read it all and took it in but I really couldn’t be bothered to give my opinion
