There's a web site called "God Hates Figs"... I don't know what it's all about, but I'm not overly fond of figs, either.
Sentient, I'd rather see that sign than, "God Hates Fags." (stoopid, ignant xtians.)
Very disturbing. I hope my neighbors don't put up this sign.
Looks like I was taken in by a Poe!
The reworked Boy Scouts poster is #37 in Austin Cline's series of satirical posters (and explanations) on atheism.about.com highlighting absurd Christian Right beliefs. The page on Hitchens Watch even uses the same filename for the image, "Boy-Scouts-Bigotry-e.jpg".
In the larger version at atheism.about.com, the engraving on the sword is clearly visible: "Bigotry, Discrimination" replacing the original poster's "Be Prepared".
I too love that "gay agenda" poster!
TFA, thanks for showing us the original Boy Scouts / war bonds poster that the "Hitchens Watch" forgery was based on.
They really thought they could get away with it, when image searching is widely available? And that the typeface Impact (created in 1965 and well known through LOLcats) wouldn't scream anachronism?
Damn damn damn. I hate the fakery. I really do.
Sentient, that Boy Scout poster is a modern mock-up of a War Bonds drive poster from 1917. Believe me, "Hitchens Watch" is not a reputable source!
Here's the original poster: Third Liberty Loan Campaign
My friend sent me this one. Love it. Now we know.
