    I recently came across this site:

    ChristWire

    And I cannot decide for the life of me whether it is a parody of conservative Christianity, or a genuine conservative Christian site. There's no disclaimer that I can find, and some of its articles are... suspiciously stupid. Thoughts?

    EDIT: This article was written by someone asking the same question. Consensus seems to be that it's a parody... or, at least, that he hopes it's a parody.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Surely it’s a parody. Would a real Christian web site admit they receive hate mail and create a section to display it publicly?

    I dont know, it could be real as it seems to be a lot of work for a poe.

    Parody, and a fairly broad one at that.

    OK, I'm fairly certain it's a parody sight now :p

    All I want for Christmas is one person, just one person, to take this seriously. Please, Almight Santa, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease!

    EDIT: The article has a video that's a bit... disturbing. That's a parody too, right?

    EDIT2: The video came from here. Either I'm falling for a large Poe, or it's an actual incident. If the latter, ChristWire shouldn't use it to parody Christianity.
