she's amazing, her words saved me:
The Gay Agenda is one big musical, according to the hatemongers at something called C.H.O.P.S, or (ugh) Converting Homosexuals into Ordinary People. They've helpfully put together a list of musical acts that promote homosexualism or include notable homosexualists, so parents can disinfect their children's iTunes libraries from digital GRIDS. You get some of the expected targets -- kd Lang, Ani DiFranco; Elton John is listed twice, as he's "really gay" -- and also some dark horses, like Kansas, Metallica, Wilco and Jay-Z. Perhaps this is all a hoax, as Morrissey is listed as "questionable," and a list of "safe bands" includes Cyndi Lauper. If you're wondering why this organization even exists, it's because its founders believe that the lesson of the 2006 election is that the Republican Party is far too gay.

(h/t: Nah Right)

UPDATE: The site's founder posted an introduction in which the viewer, um, supplicates before him, and then films with his band a music video in which we learn that "God hates fags, and if you're a fag, He hates you too." It's a shame I don't know how to perform any acts of internet sabotage.

Ravi Shankar??!!
And can someone explain to me what Man or Astroman? is doing on there as well.

I agree, however, with the idea that parents should keep their children from listening to Phish.

This HAS to be a parody.

Yeah, that's got to be satire. Other bands on the list inlude The Rolling Stones, Velvet Underground, The Doors and. . .wait for it. . .Frank Sinatra!!

This is clearly meant to be a joke. And a very good one, at that.

Dude, Man or Astroman, an instrumental surf rock band with a predilecition for b-movie samples, is listed as a "gay band". If that doesn't scream "punk'd" or whatever, I don't know what does.

It's just a joke.
