Troublemaker Glenn Greenwald posted a little something earlier today on Salon.com that he expressed a pretty hefty amount of indignation over -- and with good reason I suppose. It's basically a video ad produced by a Christian group in California called Clay Music Ministry in support of Proposition 8. For those not in the know, that's the controversial referendum that would turn back the clock and strip same-sex couples of the right to marry in California.
The reprehensible thing about the video is that it features grade school-aged kids singing about the perils of gay marriage.
And yet watching it, somehow all I can do is laugh.
Why do I get the feeling that the Christians are holding those children's parents in a shipping container down at the Port of Long Beach along with 120 other illegals who paid five grand a piece to be smuggled out of wherever?
"No singy -- no mommy. Understand, kid?"
(By the way, how much do you love that the little girl's t-shirt says "OBEY" on it?)
(Update: Apparently, the good folks at the Clay Music Ministry pulled the embedding on the video. Click it twice to see it on the YouTube site.)
