Calmamity: Uhm, if they really were doing a slow hand lowering thing like he says (as though the flag is lowering, I assume), then he really has a point.I think those kids are being exploited in a much crueler way by being indoctrinated with Christian bigotry, but that picture was bullshiat.
Three Crooked Squirrels: Anyway, congrats, AP, on feeding these fundies' persecution complex. They will say they are being unfairly portrayed (and thus victimized), and in this case they'll be right.
lockers: "It really misrepresented what was going on," Stemberger told me. "There are children involved and that made it more outrageous. They were exploited and misunderstood."You adults told them to do it. Is it unfair to mention nazi's? It was your f*cking picture. How did you fail to see it as opposed to everyone else who caught it immediately? We both know you didn't you just wanted to call yourself a victim of this obvious thing so you can to the heat off of your homophobia.

jake_lex: They should have gone with the pic of them invading a Polish restauarant.
KidneyStone: It's articles like these that really show how many people here post without reading said article.
Three Crooked Squirrels: I have nothing against these trail boys. Their parents, on the other hand. . . .Anyway, congrats, AP, on feeding these fundies' persecution complex. They will say they are being unfairly portrayed (and thus victimized), and in this case they'll be right.On an aside, autocorrect changes fundies to fun dies. Make of that what you will.
hitlersbrain: Um... they're a scummy organization with scummy values and they should probably get used to being viewed as scum.
Nabb1: If they had a bunch of pictures of those kids and they were moving their arms around and that's the one they picked, yes, that is pretty low to run a picture of kids to make it look like they are giving a Nazi salute, even if they are being put into some sort of Boy Scouts knock off because their parents think the Boy Scouts are too liberal (Really?) or whatever. Those kids have enough problems.
12349876: They're just kickin' it old school.
wambu: So apparently a photograph that gives the impression that young boys are saluting Hitler (when in fact they were not) is not egregious enough for the Associated Press?Not if it involves a religious group organized around anti-gay ideology. They are fair game, it seems.[i.imgur.com image 280x216]
Mr. Coffee Nerves: Ahh, yes, yet another nerves-of-steel True American who'll shoulder Paw's trusty Remington 860 and face down the ChiComs and the brainwashed armies of the lesbian liberal atheist Islamofascisocialisticommunists in the name of Reagan who instantly starts shrieking "Unfair! UNFAIR!" when the media doesn't do what he wants.
