8 Reasons Why God Hates Denmark?

Wow ... this guy is tough, going after Hans Christian Andersen, Legos, and Pippi Longstocking who, it turns out, is just part of a plot to make innocent girls "uppity".

More seriously, this sort of hate is just ignorant and sad.

Hat tip: Lars Skipper

Alert reader Daniel points out that the Landover Baptist Church is in fact a parody. I would add that it is a good one - it fooled me!

Addendum 2: several commenters point this out as well.

Landover Baptist is a satirical website that mocks religious fundamentalism. They're very tongue-in-cheek and almost never break character, but it's all a big joke. The fact that all the bible verses were complete non-sequiturs is sort of a giveaway, though.

You've either fallen victim to Poe's Law ("Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humour, it is impossible to create a parody of fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing") or you've double-cross-pranked us all. In either case the more readers Landover Baptist gets the better.

I hate to break it to you, but Landover Baptist Church is a satire site. I presume its forums are too.

Ignorant hate or parody? I think this is another example of Poe's Law (http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Poe%27s_law).
