The 5 Most Unintentionally Offensive Things Done For Charity

Well ATB's streak of good articles may have ended. The comments are raging a storm of insults (and throwing the word SJW around), and everyone is giving him grief for insulting the Mormon church by calling it stupid.

Overall, I didn't particularly like this article. Too much grasping at straws in some parts.

*sigh* not again.

Will read later. cracked freezes the browser up on my totally not work computer. And South Park does the same thing to LDS all the time, but they probably get insulted too. Not sure tho.

I'm already whoring out the site on the article's comments. Eric, if you're reading this, you wouldn't mind doing the same, would you?

I thought the bear pm'd people. I know cracked does not want/like links actually in the comments.

He went straight to the comments from what I saw on the troll article. I recall NotCIAAgent doing the same thing on McKinney's feminism article.

I don't think it's particularly warranted in this situation. It's just an ok article at best, and I did enough site whoring yesterday. I don't want to end up as a spambot.

And it's not really worth PMing people over, either.

I liked it for the most part but I approached it with the tone of "we don't seriously think these people are awful people for doing it, they just went about it in an amusingly terrible way."

I like to use the phrase "perfectly terrible" in these kinds of situations.

OK, point taken.

But yeah, it was just...mediocre. And not like "Thor: The Dark World" mediocre where it still has entertainment value. Just...purely below average.

I don't get it. What's wrong with making fun of Mormonism? They're all going to hell anyways.

Uh...you do realise we have at least one Mormon or ex-Mormon on the board, right?
