The Center for Reclaiming America for Christ (the acronym is CRAC--I'd've thought of a different name) has written a letter to Academy President Sid Ganis to protest the fact that Brokeback Mountain has been nominated for Best Picture.

Read the letter here.

Now, apart from the silliness of the letter to begin with--I love the part where they say the agenda is even more obvious because Narnia didn't get nominated--he signs it "Regrettably". It sounds like something out of Lemony Snicket.

Regrettably,
Jen

Love & Kisses!

I hear that 500 "scientists" have already co-signed.

I sign all my letters (I don't write any) "Hatefully yours," because I think it adds just the right touch.

I never send a letter when a half starved polar bear will convey the same intention.

Where do you get these polar bears and how do you make them do your bidding?

You give them all t-shirts that say "Everyone is born right-handed, but only the best can overcome it." Then, while they're still impressed with your show of solidarity, you can con them into anything.

Karl, I love you.

Purely, platonic, you understand...er, well, maybe not seeing as how Plato was ummm...

You make me laugh, Karl.

Your agenda is even more obvious when considering that movies like The Chronicles of Narnia, that have themes that resonate with most Americans, are virtually ignored by the Academy.

Regrettably? Nah. Perhaps Regretfully was what this Mensa wannabe meant.

I work with a nurse who is always sending disgruntled emails to her supervisor. (We read them out loud for a laugh). She signs off, "Good Day!"

We just crack up at that one. When her supervisor reads it out loud to the rest of us supervisors, we all chime in at the end for the "Good Day!"
