Why am I stupid enough to read the comments to news articles?

There's a controversy going on about the virtual version of the board game "Life". It seems (gasp!) that:

"Kids Game Promotes Same-Sex Marriages
"Concerned parent cries foul when she discovers the virtual version of the popular board game Life lets you go gay."

So why was I stupid enough to read a few of the comments to the article when I know it's going to make me mad?

Just once, I'd love it if a fundamentalist could explain to me what the Biblical story of Sodom and Gomorrah has to do with two men living in a committed same-sex relationship? The Sodom and Gomorrah story describes a planned gang rape. Can't the fundamentalists tell the difference?

Don't get me started on Leviticus. If a fundamentalist uses Leviticus to condemn homosexuals, that person ought to be following the dietary laws to the letter. If they aren't, can we spell hypocrite?

Gah!
