It seems likely that this might get taken down. a radical anti-abortion rights site responds to an article in the Onion. Yes, they totally didn’t get the satirical intent of this article (from 1999, no less) called “I’m Totally Psyched About This Abortion!”
People need to learn that religon and a sense of humor are in no way mutually exclusive. Maybe even the opposite.

Now, I guess theoretically the author could be doing some kind of meta-joke, that is pretending to be humorless and in the process being funny, but I don’t think that that is the case, somehow. If it is as real as it seems, it is a prime example of what the Subgenii call “Bulldada.”

Check out the comments on this. As of my posting they are up to 539.

It really kills me that the original Onion article is seven years old. They actually had to go back and search for it, either that or they were waiting a long time to rail against it.

Stupidity knows no bounds.

You really should need a license to be that stupid.

Still up and 711 comments four hours later. That's about one every three minutes. Man.
I am in agreement with being.

I'm not surprised. On a Jewish listserv I'm on someone stumbled upon an Onion rticle about "Jewish people" that replaced black people with Jewish people in all the standard stereotypes "Those Jews keep talking during movies!" The article itself was rather funny.. but she took it seriously... oy.
