We all know the score.

This is how the game is played.

They lie, and cooperate with lies, and become willing participants in things that are very likely to be lies, and they do it all for the greater good.

Did you hear about the infamous gay bashing birthday party RSVP from earlier this week? The story set social media on fire. Two gay dads threw a tie dye party for their 7-year-old daughter, Sophia, and invited all of the neighborhood children over to celebrate. But some anti-gay mother (probably a Christian, as countless people on Facebook and Twitter observed) declined the invitation, and she did so in the rudest way possible. Rather than simply offering a polite ‘sorry, we can’t make it,’ she jotted down a vicious anti-gay rant, and sent it to Sophia’s dads.

The note said: “Tommy will NOT attend. I do not believe in what you do and will not subject my innocent son to your “lifestyle.” I’m sorry Sophia has to grow up this way.”

When I first saw this story, my initial thought was: who in God’s name throws tie dye parties anymore?

Then my second thought was: how long before we find out that this entire story is a hoax? I told my wife it would be two weeks. I was wrong. It took one week. A couple of days ago, the inevitable inevitably happened. We discovered that the Tale of the Anti Gay RSVP was, in fact, a complete fabrication, cooked up by a morning radio show.

Don’t worry, they say they only wanted to “start a conversation.”

Mission accomplished. Conversation started.

Well, it wasn’t so much a ‘conversation’ as it was an excuse for a bunch of nincompoops to spew tired old anti-Christian and anti-conservative clichés – but I guess that’s what passes for dialogue these days.

You know, I’m beginning to suspect that the folks who spread these fraudulent parables of “anti-gay bias” might be doing it on purpose.

I’m starting to suspect that these people aren’t as gullible as they pretend to be.

I might be onto something.

Look at Jezebel’s post on the bigoted birthday snub: Gay Dads Receive Mean, Homophobic RSVP to Their Kid’s Birthday Party. The writer rants about this “mean” woman, and reports the perceived ”facts” of the case. Then, in the second to last paragraph, she says this: “Of course, this note could be a fake just to get us all frothing and get this radio station’s name in the news. It kind of seems fake.”

She thinks it “seems fake” YET SHE SPREAD THE STORY ANYWAY.

Hey, Lindy West, if you think the story is fake, howza ’bout tossing an “allegedly” into that title? Or maybe you should, I dunno, just not intentionally reiterate an anecdote you suspect to be false.

It’s called “integrity.” Look into it sometime.
