You remember what happened because it was just last week. Invisible Children co-founder Jason Russell was detained for drunken public masturbation not long after the Kony 2012 video went viral. Amanda Marcotte hasn’t had much time to comment on the story, but did say this today, and it pretty much sums up The Way Things Are with our ideological opponents:
At this point in my life, when I hear that self-aggrandizing evangelical Christians are making a name for themselves in any field, I fully expect that some kind of sex crime or sex scandal is in the immediate future. Thus, I wasn’t remotely surprised that Russell was running around naked and masturbating in public. I’m still waiting for the other shoe to drop with Tim Tebow, in fact.
It’s funny because it’s true, and also kind of sad.
