We Hate Your Work, Have a Cookie

Sometimes, even though we strive to keep the ZRC focused on its mission and as non-partisan as possible, events in ‘conventional’ politics compel us to respond, like we did to a Republican plan here in Wisconsin to disenfranchise Zombie voters, amongst many others.

Other times we’re simply inspired by the actions of other lobbying groups, as we were today when I heard about this story:

Today an Iowa House committee will meet to consider a proposed 2013 ballot referendum that would repeal same-sex marriage. While that is happening, anti-gay activists plan to show their “Christian love” to protesters by offering them cookies. SRSLY.

‘The state’s most vociferous opponent of gay marriage, The Family Leader, which is headed by former GOP gubernatorial candidate Bob Vander Plaats, has announced it will hold a prayer meeting in support of the bill in Room 305 from 12 to 1PM. “Several of us plan to bring a token of Christian love (like a small bag of cookies or other treats) to share with homosexual activists who we’ll be encountering Monday,” the group wrote in a newsletter to supporters. “It’s time we dispel lies about Christians, by tangibly showing love to people who struggle with homosexuality.”’

If this news didn’t come from such a trustworthy source I’d have sworn it was a joke. Agitating against the civil rights of an entire group of people, then offering them cookies to show that, what, it’s not personal?

Is that really all it’s supposed to take to avoid hard feelings? A cookie?

We can do that!

So The Zombie Rights Campaign is making an offer here and now to all the big, or even not-so-big names in Anti-Zombie bigotry: send us a line, whether via Twitter, email, facebook, so that we can denounce you directly and personally. Then, you get a cookie, free of charge, shipped to wherever you happen to be.

George Romero, Tom Savini, Sam Raimi, Peter Jackson, Danny Boyle, Zack Snyder and so forth? Any of you guys want a cookie?

Tell you what, it doesn’t just have to be *any* cookie. I will make you a delicious chocolate chip cookie from scratch with Ghirardelli chocolate chips (semi-sweet by default, other varieties available), real Madagascar vanilla, flour and two kinds of sugar, my favorite cookie recipe. If you happen to be in the area, you can stop by and receive your Hate Cookie piping hot out of the oven alongside a personalized condemnation of your career bashing the Differently Animated.

This offer is open to videogame designers as well, naturally. Valve, you want to send us a line? I can get you your Hate Cookies, no problem. Capcom? You’ve earned a whole *box* of Hate Cookies by now, just ask and they’re yours.
