Default Is Depeche Mode gay?

According to this (religious) website it is!

I thought it was hilarious! (and i'm 99.9% there's already a thread like this)

http://lovegodsway.org/GayBands


"We Strongly recommend that you burn the CDs. Make sure your child is watching. Make sure they can feel the heat. It is crucial that the image remains emblazoned in their young minds. They need to know that if they continue to listen to these bands they may Burn eternally as well. "

1. Is this a joke?
2. Does christianity have a problem with DM? (Blasphemous Rumours, Personal Jesus...)
3. What do you guys think?

OMG. Meaning: Oh MY God (not theirs)
I am proud to see Depeche Mode on that list.
Religion can either lift you up or Drag you down, creating hatred, wars.
I have a problem with organised religion.
The single 'Blasphemous Rumours' was very controvertial to some religious groups when it came out.
The lyrics to 'Personal Jesus' are controvertial to some people....

Donnie Davies is clearly an uneducated homophobe

For goodness sakes, even wearing makeup, having a gay family member or being 'questionable' gets you on his list! As far as I can tell Donnie himself is 'questionable'. Perhaps everyone should email him and ask him to put himself on the list

It's a spoof website: Donnie Davies is a fictional character.

I find it HYSTERICAL that they call out Kate Bush (for kissing a girl? WHAT? do they mean Katie Perry???) and yet they call Morrissey QUESTIONABLE????? AAAAAAAhahahahaha!

Anyway, "God Hates Fags" is an offshoot of Westboro Baptist Church, a hate mongering group that uses the legal system to provide them with publicity and funding. They are hateful people who picket soldiers funerals and Jewish centers, hoping to provoke a response.

And Cyndi Lauper is a "safe" band? Did anyone ever hear "She Bop?"
