Epic smackdown is epic. (Tech columnist replies to a fundy homophobe's letter)

http://www.zdnet.com/straight-talk-on-bezos-2-5-million-same-sex-marriage-donation-7000001792/

So, a ZDNet columnist receives this letter from a reader...

My daughter has a kindle fire. I just found out that the ceo of amazon is giving 2.5 million to same sex marriage. I don't want to be a part of this. Do I throw out the kindle or can I order my daughter books and apps from other places other than amazon???? Can you help me with this question???


The reply is long and wonderfully GLORIOUS. Do read it whole. I'll just quote the paragraphs that are on topic for this forum:

Well, I can't suggest you read your Bible (because it could corrupt your daughter's young mind). She's a girl, so you could probably feel somewhat safe sending her to talk to your local Catholic priest for advice.

You probably should stay away from anti-gay Baptist preachers because they clearly can't control themselves.

You probably should also stay away from Republicans like Mark Foley, Larry Craig, because they clearly can't keep it in their pants. For the record, it's much harder to find a Democratic gay sex scandal. Democrats seem to prefer cheating on their wives with female hookers rather than doing it in airports with young men. Go figure.

And I'd recommend you avoid the Evangelicals as well, because if they're populated by people like Ted Haggard, they're clearly not safe to be around, either.


EDIT: Links fixed, thx to Make7.

6. I love those text links where you're not quite sure what's there. And all true.

7. I made the mistake of reading into the comments.

Now I need a shower and some brain bleach.

I did like the flame, though.
