(Reuters) - Two New York area radio hosts have apologized for talking on-air about a note they fabricated from a fictitious parent chastising a supposed same-sex couple over their child's birthday invite, and the broadcasters admitted they kept on with the lie even after it took on a "life of its own."

Steve Harper and Leeana Karlson of Long Island pop music station WKJY, also known as K-98.3, posted the apology on Friday on the station's website.

I swear these pro gay people are going to one day blow up, because of how crazy they are! (Watch out and hold your kids close, with a guns at your side if they do).

The sad thing is not that it was fake, but that people actually think that the response was not appropriate.

What parent in their right mind would allow their child in the home of 2 homosexuals pretending to be married?

But, to be fair; the liberal dialectic goes something like this: “We know the bigots feel this way, just not enough are exposing themselves to ridicule. It’s not really fiction when it’s true.”

It’s the fake but accurate school of rooting.

It seems like half of these stories are hoaxes. I’d lay good money the *other* half are mostly setups.

I simply do not believe all these stories about bakeries, dating sites, etc. and gays being refused this or that are random. It’s always “we were shocked and no idea”, even when the local business in question was known to be owned by Christians and so on. I think it far more likely these businesses were targeted so as to get a test case into the courts.

(Sorry for the rant!)

When broadcasters start making up propaganda, which makes the moral among us look bad and airing it, we should all care. We should care enough to insist on the perps being run out of the business.

Apathy breeds strength in those who dismantle uor once-great Nation.
