Family Research Council doesn't know meaning of 'irony' and 'hypocrisy'

In the irony to beat all ironies, less than a week after the religious right accused the lgbt community of unfairly causing the closing of a bakery which refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding, Family Research Council head Tony Perkins is calling for a boycott of baking company Betty Crocker for giving away free cakes to gay couples getting married in Minnesota.

Bear in mind that in the case of the bakery, the lgbt community was accused of using "Mafia-style" tactics even though no one actually gave any description of these so-called evil tactics. At the very least, gays probably arranged a very successful boycott of the business.

Which leads us to this conclusion - when gays conduct a successful boycott, it's the equivalent of leaving a horse's head in someone's bed (Godfather reference). When the religious right attempts a boycott, they are merely "standing up for Christian values."

Someone really needs to send me a decoder book for all of this crap.

They encourage their people to openly break the laws then complain when a little bakery does and is shut down.
Betty Crocker did not break any laws and is a HUGE company.
When we boycott, it's for a specific reason. Usually having to do with laws being broken or the created to discriminate. When they boycott, it's usually for a reason they made up and is to continue discrimination.
I'm afraid a decoder handbook would be to big to print!
They may not have the words "irony" or "hypocrisy" in their vocabulary. To recognize them as part of their language would be confusing. They would have to use rational thought to use them and we all know rational thought is part of the evil sciences they teach against.

It's really easy. The religious right fear that we will do to them what they do to us. So when we do it it's something to fear because we are doing something that could become them taking our social place. When they do it its for a good cause and to protect the "good people".

You don't need a decoder. You need a disinfectant.
