We certainly love a good prank — the more drawn-out, mean-spirited, and reality-bending, the better — but our idea of a perfect hell involves being punk’d by a gang of uppity, characteristically tone-deaf Christians.
Unfortunately, that’s the fate suffered by attendees of Sunday’s Toronto Pride parade, which found a portly crew of antigay Christians inadvisably donning green, skintight body suits and rainbow-themed accoutrement to “infiltrate” the festivities and hand out sheafs of insipid propaganda.

This fledgling bit of performance art was spearheaded by Christian extremist Bill Whatcott, who tellingly was found guilty of hate speech by the Supreme Court of Canada in 2013 for handing out antigay pamphlets.
The marauding horde of milquetoast miscreants registered to march under the name “Gay Zombies Cannabis Consumers Association.” They trudged through the parade holding a banner with the group’s name, and they’re even listed as participants on Pride Toronto’s website.

Talking to Christian website Lifesite News — which we’ve accidentally forgotten to link to because it’s the day after Fourth of July weekend and we’re braindead — Whatcott crowed, “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 [sic] thing that looks like a condom, and they really can’t grab it fast enough. I had three thousand out in 20 minutes.”
The stunt is in accord with a similar schtick he pulled in 2014 at the Vancouver Pride parade under the alias of Matthew Davidson, where he registered the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
He also threw together a Heterosexual Pride Day parade in Regina back in 2001, but it wasn’t renewed for subsequent years due to its floridly antigay sentiment.
Back in 2002 he was featured on “The Daily Show”, where he complained of being discriminated against for being heterosexual and talked about the Regina Heterosexual Pride parade event.
Whatcott posted photos of himself and his half a dozen or so fellow Christian activists at the Toronto Pride parade to his blog — which we’ve accidentally forgotten to link to because we’re preoccupied with a number of personal problems — as well as links to the pamphlet they handed out to unsuspecting attendees who thought they were getting condoms and safe sex tips.
The pamphlet instead featured graphic images of sexually transmitted infections and antigay and anti-trans hate speech.
It also criticized Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for marching in the Pride parade, as well as going after other pro-LGBT politicians. Trudeau was the first Prime Minister to march in a gay pride parade.
Watch footage of him marching below.

For those who watched the youtube clip, you’ll notice a man, carrying the Canadian Pride flag dressed in a white t-shirt and a white cap – He’s a gay Syrian refugee – So food for thought.
Hey Queerty! Where is your report on Black Lives Matter shutting down Toronto Pride until their list of demands were met?
In typical leftist manner, the Pride organizers caved and gave these thugs what they demanded before the gay pride parade could continue after a 30 minute take over.
Why hasn’t Queerty reported on this event? Because they don’t like the narrative – Left Eats Left.
@Alistair Wiseman: Yes BLM did this and it should be reported about more. Furthermore the people who run Toronto Pride actually gave into their list of silly demands.
I was there. I recall the “green people” but they were one eccentric-looking group among endless others marching most handing out condoms, assorted corporate lit, other crap. Most people didn’t even read or take notice of what was handed out.
As for BLM what I find annoying that I don’t hear mentioned is that Justin Trudeau was just down the street from their “sit in”. In fact his bodyguards took notice of the “smoke bombs” they set off. Are you kidding me? You have the prime minister of Canada down the street and you throw smoke bombs? If this was Obama the FBI and security would have arrested them on the spot. And for good reason. I still think they should be legally charged and this director of Toronto Pride should grow a pair and develop some backbone. Whatever he signed is not legally binding anyway. There’s a question of duress and besides he has a Board to report to first.
Is that the same group that was giving out corn at gay pride a few years back
Re: BLM….. I think their demands are outrageous. If they are trying to get people sympathetic to their cause they are going about it in the wrong way.
I don’t blame the director for signing their ridiculous list of demands. He did the only thing that would get the parade underway again thus avoiding what could have been a much messier situation.
And next year they should have their manifesto ripped up in shreds and be told to go fuck themselves.
However – I do fault the Toronto police for not arresting them for causing a public nuisance. But I guess that’s what they wanted and would be playing into their hands.
You appear to have witnessed it, why don’t you write an article and submit it.
You’re the one who sits on the sidelines complaining about everything and that you could do better.
Or you’re Donald Trump.
Proof, if you needed more, as to what a sh*t religion Christianity is, and how it’s home to so many kooks, nuts, mental cases, and deranged people. Invented by the Romans to quell any more jewish rebellions (ur messiah’s already been, is dead and was pacifist – pay your taxes), it has been a boon to every kook, freak and weirdo since not to mention the ever-enriching con-man. These people though, are obviously disturbed and in need of professional help – or jail time.
@davidjohng:BLM is a necessary part of any Pride parade; black human rights are a part of human rights for all. If you or the other bigoted morons can’t stand that, stay the frack out of the parade and stick to the dance things that are probably more to your liking.
