The world's largest anti-gay bukake (otherwise known as the Values Voter Summit) has kicked off in Philadelphia and made itself a prime target for the more vocal of progressive protesters.

Sure, unknowing bystanders might have confused last week’s pop-up mental institution, otherwise known as Family Research Council’s “Value Voters Summit,” with a filming of a One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest remake, but little did they know the guest speakers were not actors merely portraying the crazy.
