The bands who mock God's holy ordinances

... or, at least, those ordinances as interpreted by Love God's Way, a bunch of Christians who, rather than concentrating on loving their neighbours, are instead stirring up a spot of hatred by providing a list of Gay Bands:

One of the most dangerous ways homosexuality invades family life is through popular music. Parents should keep careful watch over their children's listening habits, especially in this Internet Age of MP3 piracy.

Yes, this Internet Age of MP3 piracy is, effectively, enforcing homosexuality into children's faces through their iPods. So, who should we be watching out for?

The list is a curious grab bag, where Tegan and Sara rub shoulders with Erasure and Queen. Elton John appears twice, once with the words "really gay" in brackets. Boy George merits an unexplained asterisk - perhaps that's some sort of prize for being good at it? - while there's an entry "Morrissey(?questionable?)" - it's not clear if they believe the man to be questionable, or his sexuality.

They're seeking further suggestions:

In Our effort to keep this list up to date we'd appreciate your help. If you know of a band that is Gay or propogating a Gay message please email us so we can update. Donnie is handling this his email is:

The response is overwhelming. You guys know of a lot more Gay Bands than I do. I can't keep up. Hopefully soon we'll have it so you can add them by yourself.

Let's hope they are researching this properly and not merely throwing up any and every name they get - after all, since they clearly think there's something wrong with having sex with people of the same or similar genders, they wouldn't want to wind up libelling anyone, would they?
