"Planned Parenthood Throws Condoms at Youths — Literally"
Well, no ... but that was the headline of the Focus on the Family
article, which actually referred to a commercial
filmed by Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, where "a seemingly gay flight attendant throws condoms and birth-control pills into the laps of young-adult passengers." (I'm not so sure about the "seemingly" since apparently at the end of the ad, according to the Christian News Service
, "the attendant is sitting in the lap of the pilot winking and smiling at him as he encourages viewers to make 'sweet, sweet love'," but whatthefuck ...)
See, when an actor does something in an ad
, that's not the same thing as when a person does something out in the real world.
But then again, these religious types have always had some difficulty telling reality from fiction...
And of course, Bob Knight, director of Media Research Center's cultural analysis think tank (bet a few recorded hours of that
would make one hell of a documentary!), thinks the ad conveys a "terribly destructive, dangerous message."
