Oh Cardinal Francis George, you narrow-minded man of god, you. A few days ago Cardinal George took to that bastion of journalistic integrity, Fox News, to express his concern over a gay pride parade in Chicago, fearing that those feather-boa-wearing, man-thong-loving queens could “morph into something like the Ku Klux Klan, demonstrating in the streets against Catholicism.”

Cardinal Compares Gays to Ku Klux Klan, KKK Probably Not Too Happy About It

The gays don’t really demonstrate against Catholicism so much as, you know, live, thus flying in the face of people like Uncle Fester from the Addams Family Cardinal George who see the mere existence of homoexuality as an affront to their very beliefs. So, yeah, some gay abominations death-dropping to Gaga and Beyoncé in the streets could easily turn into a cross-burning, horse-riding, good ole-fashioned lynching.

But with a twist.

Imagine, if you will, the GayGayGay: instead of burning crosses, they’d probably just burn Paris in a series of balls where they vogue the shame out of some priests, and eschewing those staid white robes, they’d instead opt for a bold print from the spring 2012 runway. Demonstrations would be DJ’d by Samantha Ronson, there’d be a disco ball somewhere/everywhere. Maybe Cardy George is onto something…pardon me while I put in a call to the Velvet Mafia.
