Chapter IV, in which I become a threat to Christianity

An accountant, standing in front of an office supply store (Patrick & Co.), smiling and waving.

Yep, that image sure would make me quake in my boots.

Ordinarily, I would expect that a Christian anti-defamation commission who wished to instill fear in their followers would choose a picture of a drag queen in stiletto heels, fishnet stockings and full leather regalia, brandishing a whip over an ecstatic semi-nude figure wearing a George W. Bush mask. But, no, apparently an accountant in sunglasses will frighten people just as well.

Long story short, the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission has used this photo of me as one of the illustrations for their article, "Inaugural Warning: P for Perverse":

"To ensure no one misses the perversion, the Inaugural parade will include a homosexual marching band with their rainbow flags flying proud with millions of our nation’s children and Christians watching. This is the same band that proudly advertises that it will march in the homosexual Southern Decadence parade, known for its vulgarity and lewd acts in public. In 2003, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that it had 'become routine' for men to flash their genitals and perform public sex acts at the event, which bills itself as ‘the Gay Mardis Gras.’ Have fun explaining that to the little ones.

"Celebrating a person’s sin sends a message of approval.

"In order to be consistent in using this kind of reasoning, Obama ought to have a stripper lead off the inaugural parade followed by the Hell’s Angel’s Motorcycle Drill Team followed by the Crips Precision Handgun Corp. and the Transvestite Fashion Police. Just because something exists in society does not mean it is good and is to be paraded in front of everyone, especially children."

To them: Wow. Just wow. Srsly?
To you: I am jealous of your outfit, and also that you're in a marching band.

This looks like a good ol' fashioned family-fun parade to me!

This outfit can be yours if you play a musical instrument. Regardless of the name, the band is open to anyone who plays an instrument and doesn't mind being in a room with lots o' fags and dykes.

I just realized that that's my picture! Needless to say, they didn't ask for my permission. Here's the original:

Well, as long as you've got the explicit copyright notice on your Flickr images, I'd say you have a legitimate complaint.
