When five U.S Supreme Court justices voted to effectively legalize same-sex marriage, they decided they were bigger than God. They made Jesus cry. They pushed this country down a slippery slope that ends in people marrying goats and becoming polygamists. They basically summoned a big gay apocalypse.
At least, that’s the impression you get from reading some of the more outlandish conservative backlash on Twitter since the DOMA and Prop. 8 repeals last week. The humor-mongerers at Funny or Die channeled that right wing fever dream to a tee in a gayed-up parody trailer of blockbuster zombie thriller World War Z called World War G.
In the spoof (a preview that says it “has been approved for conservative audiences”), Brad Pitt tries to save his family –and the world – from the out-of-control proliferation of same-sex marriage. “Heterosexuality as we know it will come to an end in 90 days,” warns a booming PA announcer over images of soldiers evacuating valuables, burning cities and just a whole world generally falling apart because, you know, gay marriage.
Save us, Brad.
