Christwire.org Writers Trick Extreme Conservatives Into Writing For Them

Christwire.org is a satire website that features articles with titles such as "Gays Now Using Santa To Entice Man Boy Love Relations" and "Aging Liberal Jon Stewart Struggles to Stay Relevant." It is very often thought to be real by people who stumble across it! So much so that they tricked uberconservative writer Marie Jon from RenewAmerica.com (sample headline: "The homo con continues") into syndicating her articles to them. Amazing. And today, having been anonymous since the site's launch, the two founders unveiled themselves to the New York Times.
