    Then I suppose it's time to sit down with Junior and have a talk. I know, parents having to parent. Horrifying concept.

    Here's how easy it is: "Well, Timmy, some families don't follow the word of Jesus as closely as we do. We don't support that lifestyle, because we try to live a holy life so we can enjoy God's presence in our lives and meet Him in Heaven."

    How hard is that? Really? Why would such a discussion be so traumatic that one must demand the government get involved and ban an episode of a children's show? Especially, excuse me while I chortle, when one claims to support liberty and freedom.

    Like where is the propaganda in this?
    The propaganda is that gay people exist apparently.

    So if it was a striaght wedding that means they're trying to get kids to accept straight relationships?

    And that's exactly what this Programming Director and others want.

    here's the problem with that... Federal laws > state laws. We fought a civil war over that, after all.

    We can't pick and choose based on feelings... if COL or CA can legalize pot against federal law (I'm supportive) then why can't alabama pass a law against federal law in another department?

    It's a slippery slope and not one with a good answer because on a moral stand point i'm for pot legalization and gay marriage/abortion was settled a LIFE TIME ago so shouldn't be an issue again in 2019, but how do you pick and choose which states/laws can override federal law with state law, or not? And if so, whats the criteria? and if not, then certain other states like CA would have to cancel sanctuary cities, illegalize drugs, etc etc..

    It's an honest hard question to answer, with no real or easy answer. Obviously the answer is "because one is right and one is wrong" but that could be viewed as subjective.

    With straight wedding, they don't have to do anything. Nature will do it by itself.

    People don't get married in their bedrooms. I don't think the Arthur episode depicted the gay characters fucking. It's depicting something that happens in every day life in public places all over this country.
    It shouldnt be promoted as neither OK or not OK. It just shouldnt be mentioned at all.

    Being gay is perfectly ok. It's natural.
    And a single episode of some cartoon where it isn't at all shoved in anyone's face isn't harming anything. It's just Alabama continuing their trend of being backwards.

    Not unless you think love between the same gender is unnatural of course.
    You did flame me by saying I hate gay people. You're a liar or ignorant to deny it. You projected on me out of your own ignorance.
    For some people, everything is a moral question. If you agree with them, you are virtuous. If you don't, you are a monster.

    pretending it doesnt exist only makes it worse, and only more likely to drive said kids to ask questions.

    The best thing you can do is be OPEN and honest with your kids. Support them, even if they don't believe what you do.

    its ok

    Factually untrue. Lions, several apes, and wolves have all been documented in the wild engaging in homo- or bisexual activity. This most often arises during times of overpopulation, providing adults that can assist the tribe/pride/troop/pack/etc. in hunting, gathering, and child-rearing without contributing more children to a burdened ecosystem. Bonobos apes in particular have been witnessed engaging in casual bisexual relations as a means of strengthening bonds within the group.

    I mean you may just hate a part of yourself instead? That seems to be the theme with homophobes.

    You do know weddings aren’t a natural thing right? Marriage is something made by people not nature.

    It's not negative affect on their brains, it's negative affect of understanding what is right or wrong. I am totally fine to show same sex marriage in cartoons if they also explain that same sex marriage cannot have natural way of having children. Deal?
