I’m deeply indebted to Lifting the Rock for pointing me in the direction of the funniest Viagraville thread ever. Words can’t do justice to the comedy of Conservatism’s favorite poisonous dwarves tearing into each other like Baptist Jello wrestlers on crank.
If you haven’t already seen the fun head on over to Lifting the Rock for the background to Melanie, Matt, and What’s-her-name’s cute collective tantrum before checking out the action for yourself at Viagraville. They've closed the thread to any further comments, and Melanie's undoubtedly hoping it quickly sinks from view - but if enough people link to it one of orthodoxy's proudest moments should remain cached by Google for some time to come - maybe even long enough for everyone to stop laughing.
Meanwhile I’ve also been enjoying some of my own fun here, where the comments field at the bottom of this homily from several months back has been revitalized by a charming little sock-puppet called "Brad Evans". Arriving with a delightfully nasty homophobic streak, when his initial question wasn't answered in a way that reaffirmed his bigoted insecurities he then turned to play the aggrieved-atheist:
"Since I don't believe in any higher power, I thought I'd address my question to someone who's in the profession and who might actually answer it without being evasive or condescending"Which I’m sure you’ll agree is a perfectly reasonable expectation to have when writing to someone calling himself “The Reverend Doctor Christian Troll”. After all, everyone knows Father Christian is never condescending when teaching the Bible to idiots.
