Exhibit number 12,865: homophobes, no sense of humor

Onion's satirical imageA homophobic parents’ group in Canada mistook for a real news photo a satirical Onion image of a teacher instructing a class in homosexuality and illustrating her lecture with chalkboard drawings of men having sex. The photo came from an Onion article entitled “‘98 Homosexual-Recruitment Drive Nearing Goal.”

The group reproduced the photo in informational pamphlets distributed at a school board meeting to convince parents of the dangers of a program intended to protect gay and lesbian students. (Thanks to Mr. Maud and the FSU Film School list for the link.)
