“Should children be exposed to sounds of sodomy?”

“Should children be exposed to this beastly obsession with unholy acts?”

“Should the sounds of sodomy echo in the halls of a Christian home?”

This is not a parody, these are the actual questions posed by the latest anti-gay campaign by Ireland’s religious right, in opposition to marriage equality. But instead of getting angry, the whole twittersphere is poking fun at the ‘Sounds of Sodomy’ campaign. It accuses:

“At this very moment the liberal agenda conspires to undermine God’s Word and is drafting law to allow homosexuals to adopt children,” the leaflet warns, urging voters to contact their representatives.

It’s currently unknown which Christian group produced the anti-gay propaganda, and it’s unlikely anyone is going to want to claim ownership for the ludicrous campaign against hearing gay things now.

Twitter users were signposted to the absurdity by this tweet, then all holy hell broke loose.

Twitter users across Ireland and the world chimed in with their own versions of the ‘Sounds of Sodomy’ leaflet, and before long, the hashtag #SoundsOfSodomy was trending.

Here are some of the best offerings:

Anyone for a little ABBA?

Bit of Julie Andrews…

But of course, there was the odd…genuine (cough) supportive suggestion.

The hashtag is still going strong with people declaring their support for equal marriage, their ire at the religious right’s ham-fisted scare tactics, and general great humor.  A reminder that however much we might condemn the darker corners of the internet, there are moments where twitter and its many users come into their own.  This is most definitely one of those moments.

Because kids have never accidentally heard hetero parents either. This is ridiculous.

How does a gay man fucking another gay man up the ass sound different from a heterosexual man fucking a heterosexual woman up the ass?

Do they fart rainbows, or something?  Simultaneously redecorate their room in earth-tone pastels?  Knit used condom disposal bins in the shape of chihuahua shih tzu mix puppies?

That's the first one to hit me, too, but it is followed closely by the ABBA one. I wonder if whoever is responsible for this campaign is thrilled at how humorous it has become. I would guess not, but it has been good for some laughs.

Quoting mikiemom:
