Twitter Liberation Front!

Yesterday Jim Wallace of the Australian Christian Lobby tweeted the following:

"Just hope that as we remember Servicemen and women today we remember the Australia they fought for - wasn't gay marriage and islamic."

As to be expected, there was a firestorm of condemnation from the twittersphere with most calling him to task not just for his homophobic and anti-muslim views, but for daring to use ANZAC day (a day which is generally viewed as being above politics) to push his own narrow minded views.

After a couple of hours of being told to pull his head in he deleted the original post (of course this was useless as numerous screen caps had been taken of the offending tweet), and put out a media release in which he used the Scott Morrisson defence of claiming that the only thing wrong with the tweet was the timing.


Of course, given that there was a lot of interest around the tweet, Channel 7's Sunrise programme invited Jim onto this morning to be flayed with a scented boot lace:

This of couse inspired me to spend 5 seconds knocking up a logo for the twitter activists mentioned in the interview above:
