ignorance is abundant

I haven't even been entirely through the website, but my friends have reported it even gets worse than this silly list. Apparently, there's a video where it says "God hates fags." Ugh, this is so aggravating.

One day, we'll end ignorance.

Wow...

You're going to end ignorance? I'm too old to join you on that fight. I don't think that's a possible goal.

Don't mock. It is a hard battle, but hey, maybe I will contribute in some way, some day. I think it could be minimized, not necessarily eliminated. Just for people to understand that it's not a "life style" it's a life. Realistically, it's probably just going to have to come with the generations. No immediate results.

That's old satire. It's um

That's old satire. It's um not legitimate.

On the internets you've always got to be careful, because sarcasm doesn't sound sarcastic.

A few easy ways to tell it's not real: it says it's a ministry/ organisation but has no adress, just a personal email. Plus there's almost no content and the content they have is just silly.

And Oscar Wilde is listed several times as a reformed homosexual. And under the 'safe bands' list they include Cyndi Lauper and Dresden Dolls. Plus some sort of in joke about Sufjan Stevens.

Nah, it's one guy. One

Nah, it's one guy. One close-minded guy who thinks you can change being gay. Poor guy states he "was" gay and now is not. Hmm. So yeah, it is silly, and not a ministry or anything like that.

Is that what you mean by fake, or are you referring to as if this whole site isn't even made by someone against gays?

There are links to the guy's personal website [where a video of him is posted] and a link to God Hates Fags. So I don't know.

No, it's literally a great big joke- just I don't really know what the punchline is. Donnie Davis doesn't exist. The whole controvery is from last year and I can't find out anything recent about it.

People reckon it's him:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2824330/

Anyone can link to God Hates Fags. It's not like Phelps is obscure. And if it really is legitimate then they would be more likely to link to real organisations like Exodus International or NARTH and other creepy fuckers like that, since Phelps doesn't actually seem to trouble himself with whether or not gays can be 'cured'.

There's no new content on any of the 'Donnie Davis' related pages since February last year and it was January last year that interest in exposing it as a hoax really flared up.

I mean a friend loaned me a book her mum owned which has a list of bands that were a sign your child was a satanist. So it's not like there aren't people who believe the sort of things on that site.

But if you look neither sites have any content really and they're just [trying to be] funny in a way that's clearly intentional. Like the logo for C.H.O.Ps or the bands on the lists. And the quotes from De Profundis. And the fact he calls Oscar Wilde a compatriot.

It's like Brass Eye, but without the actually being good part.

It seems like Donnie Davis is a character someone created and then got found out and then it all disappeared. It's like Bonsai Kittens from a few years back.

I mean it could be real in theory, but it's much much more likely to be a hoax.

But these idiots sadly, are all too serious:

Hey I really appreciate the information. It's really good to know this guy doesn't exist and that his site is a joke. Cause a lot of that shit is silly.

Sad that not all of them are a joke.

Ignorance implies some

Ignorance implies some semblance innocence, in that you did not know any better before making your statements, judgments, accusations or committing acts. This is far from ignorance. It's simple stupidity.

Good point. Ignorance my

Good point. Ignorance my more lie with those who simply assume we can change just because that's all they know; the ones who go to church and are holy in every bone. I personally know people like that who I talk to and am friendly with. I'm not mad at them, because I know they just haven't taken a step out of their religion to have a look at the secular world around them, which holds far more reality than their biblical one. That's ignorance. And they should still gain some insight, but at least they're not complete close-minded idiots.

Hey...

Don't trash the ex-gays. I hear they're a fun time in bed. Repression is hot, and then freedom is pretty wild, too, so you can get them on both sides of them becoming gay again.

This site is unbelievable.

jeff's picture

Err...

As this site was established as fake, I would guess the people on the list were put there more for the sake of Google than any rattional reason.
