As the internet becomes increasingly aware of gay-bashing, pandagator-hating website ChristWire.org, one issue keeps arising: Is this stuff for real?
ChristWire's genius (or evil) lies in its hyperbolic, worst-case-scenario Christian coverage of everything from wife-beating to ferreting out whether or not your husband is gay (sample sign: "Sassy, sarcastic and ironic around his friends"). But no one can seem to agree on whether the site is in earnest or not. It's so ridiculous that it must be fake...and yet some very real fringe groups have demonstrated a capacity to be ridiculous themselves. Moreover, the site features content from contributors such as Marie Jon, a known political and religious writer who is most certainly for real. And so while you want to think for all its absurdity that Christwire is satire, such elements lend it credibility.
