Doug TenNapel, the self proclaimed creator of Earthworm Jim, now runs an online comic called Ratfist. In the comments section of page 99 of his comic, TenNapel decided to speak up about his views on Christianity and homosexuality. Read the title of this post one more time and take a guess as to what his comments were like.
But in America (and this would be alien to Canada and Europe) we have a thing called freedom of Religion, freedom of expression, freedom of creed and freedom of speech. It is specifically our right to hold our “minority” religion and vote accordingly that makes America unique. So though the majority thinks every church ought to be forced to perform gay weddings, the minority traditional religious perspective is protected by the Constitution…and be careful how you undermine that right because it’s the same place where we find our right to be our race, be our sex and be treated equal to others. ANd the rights of the minority in this instance are in tact. Everyone, regardless of sexual identity, has the right to marry someone of the opposite sex. That’s the law, it’s fairly applied to all. There are minority groups that are for multiple marriage partners, and we put those more controversial ideas up for a vote. Nobody seems to mind the outcome of those results when they’re in fashion with pop-culture.
In a later comment, he also mentions that the 78.5% of Americans who are Christian are "why [Americans] kick ass," and that his reason for opposing gay marriage is "the same argument [he has] against letting a man take a dump in the ladies room" (supposedly so that we don’t hear what girls talk about while they pee).
Now, I’ve met Doug TenNapel in person and he seemed like a really nice guy to me. We chatted about Earthworm Jim and how he and Interplay were planning the fourth game for the Wii. Then he talked about how Interplay originally wanted to do a quick-and-dirty sequel to make some fast cash but—Mr. TenNapel? He’s a pretty cool guy who won’t stand for such trash. He told them that if they wanted to do a sequel to Jim, they’d have to do it up proper.
Then, when I took to the Internet to tell people how cool he was for standing up to his publisher, Doug TenNapel called me a liar. So fuck that bigot. I hope this ruins his career.
