Some dogs moo

I've been meaning to post about this for two weeks now, but I kept forgetting. You know how sometimes anti-gay people say cruel things and it makes you sad? Isn't it AWESOME when they say silly thinks and you laugh hysterically for a good five minutes?

Well, here's the latest in silly, silly news.

Huffington Post reported:

James Dobson's Colorado Springs-based ministry stands firmly against same-sex marriage, gay rights initiatives and, now, mooing puppies.

On Tuesday, Focus unveiled its new "straight" puppy Web site,, featuring a basset hound named Sherman, who barks as biology intended. During a news conference, a Focus employee dressed in a dog suit, who serves as a mascot at the group's visitors center, made a brief appearance.

"Dogs aren't born mooing, and people aren't born gay," a Focus news release stated. [note: that's the entire post]

Think Progress has a little more up here.

And now my favorite part: the actual site.

Honestly, I thought this was a joke at first.

You know, it pains me to say it, but the Huffington Post missed the story pretty badly. The opposition site is actually making fun of our side's ad campaign which uses essentially the same metaphor (see Colorado Springs Independent story) As for whether our side's campaign is effective, I'll leave that to the reader to decide.
