"The stories and content on The Holy Observer are mostly fabricated and should not be taken seriously. Real names are used on occasion for satirical purposes, but the quotations and situations associated with those names are usually fictitious.

"If you are offended by any of the content on The Holy Observer, there is probably some good reason why you shouldn't be. If you can't figure out what that reason is, it doesn't necessarily mean you're not smart enough to understand why you shouldn't be offended, but it probably does."
