This is not the Babylon Bee anymore. At this point, if you make a comment, ask a question, or say anything at all, even, "Nice weather today", without also inserting, "Also, trans people are great", you are a hate group.

IMO, that is one of the reasons so many people jumped on the bandwagon to boycott Bud Lite and AB products in general.  A LOT of people are upset by this crap and are just looking for something they can do about it.

That was awesome.  The teenage daughter, disinterested and with her face in her phone the whole time but secretly listening (if for no other reason than to correct her mother) was played perfectly.  The John MacArthur cameo at the end was unexpected, :lol:  especially the daughter actually engaging with him when her parents were gone.

Turns out, that's a real university in California, and John MacArthur is the prez.  They apparently collaborated with The Bee to do a commercial.  👍

Hmmm - I may have missed it, but has the Southern Poverty Law Center designated Master's University and the Babylon Bee as right wing white supremacist transphobic hate groups yet?

Pro: Resting place of Noah's actual ark.

Con: No one can agree on how Louisville is pronounced. This is actually what started the American Civil War.

The "No one can agree on how Louisville is pronounced" is factual
