Entertainment that teaches a lesson

How To Write An Anti-Gay Tract In 15 Easy Steps: "I have counted fifteen key steps to writing an anti-gay tract. While the steps are very wide-ranging as tactics, there is one common element that ties them together: fear. Each step builds on the previous one, reinforcing the things the writer wants his readers to be afraid of. It starts with a fearful premise reinforced with fearful “facts,” and leads to the fearful consequences of those “facts.” It ends with a fearful depiction of the future for our society if these fearful problems aren’t dealt with."

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
