Sometimes, when a religious group decides to talk about various issues, it can become downright crazy!
We’ve decided to compile some of the most insane, awful, and unintentionally hilarious religious public service announcements (PSAs) that we could find!
Touching one’s self is bad (apparently), especially if you are deaf. You wouldn’t want to go blind too, right? This is what it looks like when Jehovah’s witnesses try to tell deaf people exactly how awful the evil practice of fapping can be! (The original was taken down for a copyright violation, so an AATTPer offered this in its stead.)
Brigham Young University released a video comparing self-manipulation to being involved in “The Great War.” Not only does our protagonist pleasure himself with the door wide open as the video explains that all of his friends know about his nasty habit (because…door), but it complains that they do nothing to “help” him.
Somehow, he is transported to a battlefield where most ignore his “problem.” Eventually, a “friend” decides to “help” him by telling a trusted authority figure. The video ends with an incredibly homoerotic theme.
Brigham Young has removed the video, and viciously pursues malicious copyright claims against all who have had the audacity to save the video, but it’s still available all over the place.
Ever see something so stupid that you want to bash someone’s–yours or otherwise–head into the wall repeatedly? Well, this one will do it! It’s no secret that some religious groups are anti-woman. It’s even less of a secret that they hate contraception.
Imagine if you will a video that is so mind-bogglingly insane that it can’t help but be funny. In 2012, the group Come Unity accomplished just that with its video, “You Deserve to Know the Truth: Contraception.”
The video explains that contraception turns men gay, men are more attracted to women who do not use contraception than to supermodels, and that the use of contraceptives is making our entire population infertile! Birth control is also leading to an increase in um…”animal-loving” and a rise in North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) membership.
Go ahead–watch it. You deserve to know the um… truth…
Of course, we can’t leave out “the gays!” This video, produced by the National Organization for Marriage, focuses on the harm gay marriage does to children. It presents a series of “confused” children asking questions about two people loving one another that a.) most children would not ask, and b.) any responsible parent can explain acceptably with little to no thought.
Sometimes, you just need to realize that Planned Parenthood is an evil organization that exists solely to kill black babies. Thanks, Rosary Films!
… and PSA #1.
This anti-evolution ad is not only filled with some absolutely hilarious misinformation and logical leaps (Did you know that when you open a random jar of peanut butter, there’s no new life inside, so evolution is wrong?)–but we just want to know who in the hell holds bananas like that?
