Imagine The Onion (theonion.com) crossed with godhatesfags.com, and you’ll have an idea of what Landover Baptist Church is all about. Found at landoverbaptist.org, this send-up of Christian supremacists features an interactive quiz on biblical punishments (unruly children: death; women who wear showy clothes: death; overeaters: death), reviews of Hollywood’s ”anti-Christian trash,” streaming audio of hellfire-and-brimstone sermons (including “Pokémon: Pocket Demons!” and “Indians Try to Ruin Thanksgiving”), and headlines like “Happy 6000th Birthday, Planet,” plus an animated picture of a Boy Scout eating watermelon over the caption ”What will go in little Billy’s mouth next? Keep Homos out of the Scouts!” The site’s one weakness is that it’s hard to parody groups whose views are so ludicrous they already seem like satire.
