Is it a Parody?

It has been pointed out to me that the website for Objective: Chrisitan Ministries, which I linked to in one of yesterday's postings, is probably a parody. Having read some of their articles more carefully, I think this is porbably right. I couldn't find anything to explicitly identify the site as a parody, but the clues are there nonetheless.

Assuming it is a parody, I would say it's a bit too good. The articles they have up there are similar in both tone and substance to genuine conservative Christian websites that I have enocuntered. I suspect that supporters of Answers in Genesis, for example, would find much here they agree with.

Pretty sure it's a parody.

You know what they say. It's tough to parody something when it's already a parody.

Of course it's a parody. I think it's one of the best of any I've seen on the internet---much more subtle than Landover Baptist. I was introduced to the site by somone on talk.origins drawing my attention to this page:

I was competely taken in by it until I reached this bit:

'It is is also the first year that Muslim students from the Al-Jannah Islamic school have been invited to participate; two of their students presented a project on human anatomy entitled "Allah (SWT) Created Me" which, while it was found ineligible for a prize due to a number of Biblical inconsistencies, did win a special Interfaith Outreach ribbon.'

at which point I burst out laughing, and I've been a great fan ever since.

If you're still not convinced, have a look at the three articles on anti-triclavianism:

or on Al the anti-lies bear:

The link to Landover should have been a sure givaway.
