    Seriously, even the linked article makes a case for this story being a hoax.

      The "Paul Jackson" Facebook page has a picture that looks like it came straight out of a life insurance or Polident commercial.

      Fans of the site look like an especially hip and young crowd.

      Any Facebook aces want to examine it for other signs of hoaxiness?

        but I did check the page out, and I followed their links on the left sidebar. One link is to a pro-marriage equality article, and the other link was to a website associated with the Landover Baptist Church website, which is a parody website that lampoons Christianity. So yeah, I'd say that there is a 100% chance that this is a hoax.

        If you're reading this, that means I've broken my New Year's resolution.

          The Landover Baptist links seem to be a giveaway.

          I mean, sure, this Utah group could be real, and the Landover folks are just fucking with them, but this smells more and more like a hoax.
