The Onion Rips Mormons Marching in Pride Parade

by Colin Wolf
- Posted // 2012-06-01 -

According to America's Finest News Source, Mormons just can't do anything right. But when there's a situation as ripe as a hundred or so LDS members marching in church clothes at the head of Sunday's Pride Parade, it only makes sense that The Onion would circle in for the kill. Members of the Mormons Building Bridges group will march in support of the LGBT community despite the traditional "No Homo" finger wags of the LDS organization.

If you thought the whole situation was a little confusing, so did The Onion, and in today's American Voices (a pseudo "man on the street" column) the satirical news source asked three fictional characters what they thought about the Mormons marching in Sunday's parade:

"Within the Mormon church, it's very progressive to recognize gay people's right to walk around in public." -Tasha McGee, systems analyst

"Before we get giddy, let's wait and see what they've written on their signs." -Bert Nichols, yard worker

"I think the church will probably move the Tabernacle while those 100 hundred or so are marching so they can't find it when the parade's over." -Eugene Rasulala, engravings polisher

Meh, not really the best we've seen from American Voices, but even so, getting jabbed by The Onion is an honor, I suppose. I guess we'll have to wait and see how Salt Lake City prospers from "The Onion bump."

It is wonderful to love and support everyone- drug users (who have high suicide rates), gays, angry people, Mormons, Catholics, Jews, etc, we all should love.  I've read about Gay LDS congregations and Evergreen, and I\ think if the Munsons wish to introduce their children to homosexuality those\ kinds of gays are probably the best of the best to get to know and love.  The activist homosexuals who often attend pride parades are often the\ opposite of the gays we know and love, and the political activists who are on the internet all day in comment sections are the type of homosexuals who went after Jewish people in Germany (because they were family oriented) and who intended to destroy all religion after the rise of their Reich, and who are currently trying to destroy certain religious groups and are pushing for Obama's election.

Supreme Court rejects appeal to stop offensive gay parade

 

 Mainstream Media here in American refuses to tell the truth about homosexual activists, and why they feel the need to attack people of faith.  

 

The SL Tribune blocked me from commenting after I made this comment, let's see how CW handles the truth.
