Those darn fundies! They like to spread the love around, don't they? Today's bit o' humor comes courtesy of the Indiana Family Institute's new blog Veritas Rex. The far right hate group's new site has the obligatory blogroll, but then they add something a little extra to it... They include a section called *insert ominous music here* "The Other Side." Guess who made the cut?

Yup, we sure did. But we're not alone - and the connections to our site are amazing...

The sites they list (other than us) are:

  • Advance Indiana - An Indiana political blog written by a gay Republican attorney. His blog started as an expose of Advance America - a similar state org with many obvious violations of state and federal tax law.

  • ICLU (Indiana Civil Liberties Union) - Actually, that's the ACLU-IN, but then again we're not Bilerico, but The Bilerico Project. Who can quibble? Interesting sidenote: TBP contributor Sheila Kennedy used to run the org when it was still called the ICLU.

  • Indiana Equality - Indiana's largest LGBT organization got a mention too. Interestingly enough, they skip the main site and link straight to IE's blog. Interesting sidenote: The connections between myself and other contributors to IE are myriad.

  • Planned Parenthood - Ah, another eternal black hat like the ACLU. Just the mention of their name makes good fundie men quiver in their leather boots. Interesting sidenote: Contributor Jen Jorczak is the Director of Advocacy for Planned Parenthood of Indiana.

So let's see who they consider "the other side"... There's women, LGBT folks and lawyers. Wow. That's a heckuva grouping! Can you imagine being a lesbian attorney around that crowd?

I'm glad to see that with all of our connections to their list of sinful and wicked abominations, we're doing our part to piss off the radical right.

I don't know if they list all those TBP contributors' orgs because they just really don't like us or because we just have so many darn people blogging over here, lol.

Next goal: 100% TBP control of the left, huzzah!

Did they fail to mention that we are part of the dreaded "underground homosexual conspiracy"? --- I love that one!

By the way, when is our next secret meeting? I lost my decoder ring --- I think my last trick left before I could retrieve it out of his ass.
