Christians mock gays at shocking Easter service
Thousands of Christians gathered for an outdoor Easter Sunday service in San Francisco to publicly mock gays and humiliate gay heroes.
The flagrant attack, which included skits, obscenities and impersonations satirizing gays and gay stereotypes, sent shockwaves of outrage and disgust throughout the region and across the nation.
This report features photo and video documentation of the free public Easter service, which was attended by a majority of Christians in the city, who laughed at and insulted gays and the homosexual community.
Thousands of Christians make fun of gay stereotypes by dressing up as gays in Mission Dolores Park as they watch an anti-gay religious service and performance.
One of the Christian performers paraded around nude on stage, in an attempt to make gays look bad.
Another Christian satirized gay behavior by standing on his head and displaying his anus to the crowd.

THIS HAS BEEN A TEST OF THE
EMERGENCY DOUBLE-STANDARD SYSTEM
If this had been an actual case of Christians mocking gays, you would have heard about it in the mainstream media.
As you've undoubtedly noticed by now, everything in the report above is the exact opposite of true. Yes, there really was a huge public event in San Francisco on Easter Sunday involving Christians, gays, mockery and humiliation. But it was gays mocking Christians and it involved thousands of people laughing at the Christian "hero," Jesus.
The event in question is known as the "Hunky Jesus" competition, a semi-serious annual male beauty contest seeking to crown the "hunkiest" -- i.e. most sexually appealing -- gay (preferably half-nude) Jesus lookalike in San Francisco. Actually, Hunky Jesus is only part of the story; it's the culmination of a day-long Easter Sunday festival in the city's Mission Dolores Park. The massive public party/picnic is the closest thing San Francisco has to a municipal Easter celebration, and features several events including an Easter egg hunt for kids, burlesque shows, a campy Easter bonnet contest, musical groups and so on, with Hunky Jesus as the headlining final performance.
As you will soon see in the report below, Hunky Jesus is intentionally as blasphemous as possible, an over-the-top religious-themed sexual beauty contest steeped in mockery of Christians and Christian beliefs.
Now, you might think, considering how I started this report, that I'm opposed to the Hunky Jesus contest and everything it stands for. But you couldn't be more wrong.
I actually like Hunky Jesus; I'm not a Christian, nor am I religious in the slightest, so the "blasphemy" doesn't bother me one bit.
No, what bothers me is the double standard. In San Francisco (and places like San Francisco, including most newsrooms and TV studios), it's perfectly acceptable to mock Christians. But to turn the tables and mock gays in a similar way is considered totally beyond the pale; a hate crime; bullying; bigotry and oppression of the worst kind.
If the story as I originally titled it was true ("Christians mock gays at shocking Easter service"), it would indeed have been national news. But when the reverse happens -- silence. And what this tells me is that our society is currently enduring a condition of mass rank hypocrisy.
What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Since the gay community has carte blanche to mock Christians (as proven here), then the reverse should also be true -- Christians should be free if they so choose to publicly mock gays or the stereotypical gay lifestyle. Why not? Neither side may like the mockery, but fair is fair.
To be consistent, we should either allow even-handed free speech for (and against) everyone -- or ban all critical speech whatsoever. And that second option is the road to totalitarianism (not to mention being unconstituional), so Option 1 it must be: free speech for all.
As you will see in the photos and videos below, the gay community is very, very good at dishing it out. But can they take it? The moment anyone attempts the slightest mockery or put-down of stereotypical "gayness," an entire class of professional victimologists and whiners and lawyers go apoplectic; no criticism or mockery is allowed!
This double-standard (and similar double-standards -- take your pick) is destroying our national soul. I demand equal rights for all -- the right to mock the target of your choice. The gay community wants to mock Christianity? Fine. Go for it. But then you necessarily must be prepared to take it on the chin uncomplainingly when it's time to turn the tables and you are on the receiving end of the mockery.
Sound fair? Sounds fair to me. Now let's have some apolitical fun at the Hunky Jesus contest!
