It appears that the parody atheist blog, Discomfiting Christianity, has fallen off the map. I am not sure, but I imagine that the owner of the blog realized that the satire thing had gone too far, and honest people were being impersonated and slandered.
Similarly, the parody Christian blog, Brother Blark has also disappeared, seemingly at my request (check the comments section of this post to see Brother Blark accept my request).
This makes me very happy. While I don't mind a little satire now and then, I do want some degree of up-frontness about it. Places like Landover Baptist at least have a notification on their site that they are a parody or satire page. In addition, they don't run around pretending to be serious apologists, nor do they jump into serious apologetic blogs and waste people's time with gags and misinformation.
The Discomfiter and Brother Blark were trying to inject their satire/parody blogs into a serious debate community. And while it was fairly apparent that they were joke blogs, they didn't admit it themselves. Technically, they were lying. No disclaimers, nothing.
And then the whole impersonation of John Loftus thing was way overboard, as if The Discomfiter's obsession with Loftus wasn't overboard enough already. The whole debacle quickly crossed the line into extremely bad taste. Whoever was impersonating John Loftus needs to take a good honest look at their own conduct and ask themselves how they would feel if someone did that to them.
So like I said, I am very happy that the satire has toned down. I don't want to see dishonesty from either side of the ideological fence. And I want to thank both The Discomfiter and Brother Blark for taking the more mature and reasonable route and closing down their blogs.
