OK, Hey Jenny Slater readers -- yes! all three of you -- I have a mission for you. Or a favor to ask. Or an assignment, or something.
It has three parts:
1. Watch the video located here. (It's safe for work, but you still might want to listen via headphones.)
2. Explore the site(s) associated with it, including those of Love God's Way Ministries and Donnie Davies.
3. Vote in the poll below. (Removed -- see updates.)
Have at it . . ."
UPDATE: Donnie Davies surfaces again! He's got a new video that would seem to expose the whole thing as a spoof -- he thanks the openly gay, HIV-positive blogger Andrew Sullivan for "getting behind" him in his efforts. But The Stranger has a new theory: It is a hoax, but "Donnie Davies" is still a homophobe. Readers? All I know is I'm more confused than ever.
UPDATE THE LAST: The polls are closed, because the denouemént has been reached; go here for the exciting conclusion. In the end, it was 39% voting for "hoax," 32% voting for "oh, crap, it's real," and the other 29% still too confused to state a definite opinion. Results that even kind of tell you just how slick a job Joey Oglesby . . . er, I mean, Donnie Davies did.
