God hates shrimp.

Leviticus 18:22 calls sexual relations between two men an abomination. But who knew the very same book says that eating shellfish, shrimp, lobster, or crab is also an abomination (Lev. 11:10)? The creators of the parody website godhatesshrimp.com want to make sure the word gets out.

"We call upon all Christians to join the crusade against Long John Silw'r's and Red Lobster," the website reads."Yea, even Popeye's shall be cleansed. The name of Bubba shall be anathema?' They sell T shirts, mugs, and even barbecue aprons that aim to "show the infidel you mean business"--perfect for your local courthouse protest rally.
