Gay Zombies Strike a Blow for Sanity
I’m just back from a symposium in Gardone, Northern Italy, where we learned much about Martin Luther’s Revolt—I refuse to call it a Reformation—and why it was such a runaway success. One reason was Luther’s remarkable propaganda skills: a master manipulator, he pioneered the use of the media to crucify Catholic Christendom, employing pamphlets, woodcuts, and even music to get his message across. Some of the woodcuts were particularly obscene; for instance, one portrays demons sitting on a privy, defecating monks.
Michael Matt of The Remnant newspaper expressed a certain degree of admiration for Luther’s media skills, and suggested that disenfranchised Catholics could learn quite a lot from him. In particular, we could make judicious use of some of his techniques, but this time against the Church’s enemies, imparting the truth instead of lies and employing ridicule where necessary.
I must confess I thought this to be a tall order. True, we have a very powerful instrument at our disposal—the world wide web. But how could we effectively expose, for example, the all-powerful militant sodomite lobby and help to negate some of their mendacious propaganda??
But today I opened the LifeSite News site and found out how this has already been done, quite brilliantly, in Canada, by some Christians—presumably Evangelical Protestants, who would be in some sense heirs of Luther. It’s rather ironic, really.
Here’s the LifeSite News report by Pete Baklinski, slightly edited:
Christians dressed as ‘Gay Zombies’
Half-a-dozen Christians led by activist Bill Whatcott paid the $100 fee to parade organizers to register “Gay Zombies Cannabis Consumers Association” so that they could move more easily along the parade route to deliver their message.
The group said their goal in participating in the event was twofold: First, to be a prophetic and unambiguous witness against the unfettered celebration of homosexuality, and second, to offer people caught up in the same-sex lifestyle a way out through a call to repent and to turn to Jesus Christ to be saved.
“Our delivery was a bit creative,” said Whatcott to LifeSiteNews, “but, we wanted to give people this message because it is truthful.”
Whatcott said that as a street preacher in other Pride parades he seldom handed out more than a few dozen pamphlets. But this time, dressed as gay zombies, he and his crew managed to hand out thousands of pamphlets.
“I asked them if they wanted ‘Zombie safe sex.’ Everyone loved it. But if you try to give out a Gospel pamphlet, they swear at you and throw slushies on your forehead. But, give them some wackadoddle thing that looks like a condom, and they really can’t grab it fast enough. I had three thousand out in 20 minutes. He described the handout as “pretty direct hitting stuff” that was also “charitable” because it offers people caught up in the same-sex lifestyle a “way out.”

The pamphlet shows graphic images of diseases associated with same-sex behaviours, including anal warts and AIDS. It states:
Natural law is clear, homosexuality is incompatible with human nature. Disease, death and confusion are the sad and sordid realities of the homosexual lifestyle. The ‘Gay Zombies’ are concerned about the spiritual, psychological and physical welfare of all potential homosexual pride attendees, so we want to give you this accurate information and encourage you to abstain from homosexuality. The rejection of true marriage is also in direct opposition to God’s law and it is our duty to warn you that those who choose to rebel against the God who created them, do so to their eternal peril. For those reading this Gospel package we also want to let you know there is a God who loves you, and who is real, and who has made a way for you to come to Him.
Whatcott said that same-sex attracted people need to know the medical facts about the practices they engage in. “We don’t feel that this message should be closeted and that we should be bullied into silence.”
In 2013 the Supreme Court of Canada found Whatcott guilty of “hate speech” against homosexuals for pamphlets in which he warned that “children will pay the price in disease, death, abuse and ultimately eternal judgment if we do not say no to the sodomite desire to socialize your children into accepting something that is clearly wrong.”
I hope to do several more blogposts on the Gardone symposium in the coming days.
