An honest question

I followed a link from Balloon Juice and ended up on Calvinists 4 Conservatism. I am seriously not being snarky when I ask if someone can tell me if this site is serious or parody. I would myself giggling at what seemed obviously over-the-top faux-righteousness and, the next thing I knew, I was getting the willies thinking that it might be real. WTF?

I couldn't tell whether it was real or satire. Either that guy is very good, or the world is much wierder than I imagined.

I vote spoof. It's subtle, but you just don't find people with flawless grammar and syntax begging the Lord to save them from fags.

Not satire, though. Satire tips its hand. Either he's setting up fundie flypaper or he just really enjoys needling liberals, and I gotta say, I can sort of see the attraction. Their credulity is astonishing. Judging by the reactions obviously fake trolls can provoke on lefty threads, I'm surprised Jesus's General hasn't been reported to a hate crimes unit.

So either he's a whack job or he just likes to play the part of one. I'm honestly not sure which is worse.

Spoof...most certainly. And among the best.
