I am not one to shoot fish in a barrel, because it is (a) cruel and (b) unusual; besides, the fish would have enough problems of their own simply by being in the barrel. However, like so many things (including the Creation) it is a metaphor. All of which is a roundabout way of getting to the latest posting by Mr Tips.
Mr Tips has learned that lesbian gangs are bashing and raping young girls. Now, I like to think of Mr Tips as Newman to my Seinfeld but here he is simply helping me: "at first I thought this was some kind of crank scenario, dreamed up by a bored new reporter, but apparently not." No, apparently not; Mr Tips read this story on Lifesite News, which picked it up from Fox News, specifically, The O'Reilly Factor.
You can see where I am headed here, can't you? Lifesite-Fox-O'Reilly: this is not a story that one could take at face value, unless one were of the same mind as Mr Tips. And a little searching reveals that the Southern Poverty Law Center already has done the necessary background checks.
For the benefit of those conservatives with limited attention spans, I will summarise: the story is a load of tosh. There is no national network of lesbian gangs; in the only specific case cited in the O'Reilly story, two of the three lesbians were men; there are no pink glocks (I mean, really, how would you paint a gun pink? I thought these conservatives were supposed to know about guns) and the television report from Memphis which figured strongly in the story was a fantasy.
See, that wasn't difficult, was it? All I had to do was Google. But the best fact of the SPL Center story, I have saved until last: the O'Reilly reporter goes to church in Landover.
