A Public Service Announcement from the Irreverent Skeptics

As you probably know by now, the United States Supreme Court has ruled that bans on same sex marriage are unconstitutional. We applaud the bravery the Supremes made in actually reading the constitution and defending the rights of all people to marry as they so choose.

But there are those who oppose the ruling – for example, Texas Southern Baptist pastor Rick Scarborough. Dr. Scarborough made a very serious promise while talking about just how much he opposes marriage equality despite public condemnation of his position:

“We are not going to bow, we are not going to bend, and if necessary we will burn.”

As skeptics, we care about honesty and integrity, and we know Dr. Scarborough does, too. So we wish to encourage our listeners to help him keep his promise. You can do this by sending matches and lighters to him via the PO Box of his organization, Vision America:

Rick Scarborough
C/O Vision America
P.O. Box 10
Lufkin, TX 75902

If you want to help but don’t want to spend a lot of money, we suggest a 3-pack of refillable lighters for just $4.98 with free shipping. Or, if you really want to be thrifty and make sure that he catches fire and stays caught, there’s always the 300-count package of strike-on-box matches for just $4.32, also with free shipping.

Thank you for your attention on this important matter. We now return you to your regular programming.
