I am rather amused by the reaction of some atheists in a thread on the 'God Is For Suckers' site referring to the legalisation of 'gay marriage' in Vermont, USA . The thread commenced with a graphic of Batman and Robin kissing one another and a couple of commentators took exception to it, complaining that the graphic sullied the credentials of entities whom they admired and felt were deserving of unquestionable respect, apparently. (Alert readers will note that those who complained that Batman and Robin were somehow sullied by the merest suggestion that they were gay suggests that the complainers consider that the condition of homosexuality is somehow less worthy of respect than heterosexuality, which indicates a great deal about their true feelings on the subject. But, hey ho, it's not only theists who are homophobic, unfortunately, though they can blame their attitudes as 'religiously sanctioned', at least.)
Also lost on those complainers objecting to their imaginary heroes being 'sullied' with the suggestion of homosexuality was the fact that the site regularly uses pictures and graphics of other imaginary entities in a humorous, sarcastic, mocking or satirical way, despite the fact that it is known that these usages are offensive to people of a religious persuasion. So, as far as the complainers are concerned, it is OK for them to mock an imaginary creature called 'God' but don't anyone dare to do the same for the equally imaginary creatures known as Batman and Robin.
Strangely enough, when one commentator asked the complainers to explain why it is OK for them to mock the revered and respected objects of those foolish enough to claim to be religious but that one must not to mock Batman and Robin, thereby offending people like themselves who apparently imbue those imaginary creatures with some kind of misplaced reverence and respect, that commentator was met with vituperation and calumny by one of the Moderators on the site who goes by the pseudonym' Krystalline Apostate'.
One is left with the ineluctable conclusion that people like 'KA' are indistinguishable from those of a religious persuasion: both believe that imaginary entities they choose to support should be treated with respect and that their reputations should be unsullied and sacrosanct; they also appear to be closet homophobes. What a bunch of fuckwits.
Thanks for demonstrating your complete lack of personal integrity and non-existent intellectual rigour, KA, but if you don't like this comment you can console yourself with the recollection that it was you who told me to fuck off back to my own blog and post my comments there rather than question your delicate sensibilities on GIFS.
One final thing, KA, if you don't like reading my comments here, you can take the advice you gave me and fuck off back to whence you came for you are simply another ignorant, foul-mouthed, mendacious and duplicitous prat, and there is truly nothing to distinguish you from the theists whom who pour excoriation on.
Batman and Robin are neither any more real than 'God' is, you delusional moron, and neither should they be free from mockery or satire.
Thanks for demonstrating what a buffoon you really are, Douglas. Little wonder you are a laughing-stock behind your back.
