05:07 pm - For god's sake think of the kittens
There was some debate on ... er... lost the reference, Eschaton I think, about whether this site is a spoof or not. The page I have connected to seems manifestly parodic, but if you read the rest I think these people are sincere, cheerful, rational and yet paradoxically barking mad.

"Operation Save The Kittens." The premise: God kills a kitten every time you masturbate.

They do venture into theology.

Does God really kill kittens?
You would have to talk to Bible scholars about that, but I don't think he does. It's just a great way to think about this issue in a non-threatening way.

The site is a rich source of nonsense, such as the puppet pornography that in some way is supposed to be part of the fight against pornography. What do you think - real or not real?

Not real. Although bits of the forums might be.

Real. The domain is owned by these people who certainly don't seem to have any humour at all, to judge from their own site.

Oh my. I'm afraid I think it's real. There are too many links to it from serious sites, and too many real-sounding details, for it to be a spoof (I think).

Whatever, it gave me a good laugh.

The kitten thing is not real. The anti-porn/masturbation stance is real. They appear to be attempting to approach a serious topic in what they consider a light-hearted way. Clearly, it doesn't work for everybody--I think it's just confusing.

A little late seeing this post, Catalyst just pointed it out to me.

Unfortunately, my first thought was to apply a little reverse logic.

Soo, If every time I masturbate, God kills a kitten... what happens every time I kill a kitten?
