Another one for the Enemies List

Patti Bouvier from the The Simpsons:
Anticipation has been building for months at FOX over who would be outed on The Simpsons? After months of speculation, it was Marge's sister Patti Bouvier who took a trip down the aisle with Veronica, a pro golfer.

But in typical Simpsons fashion, things couldn’t stop there. Veronica turned out to be a man, as was revealed by a protruding adam’s apple at the altar. The ceremony, which was presided over by Homer after he applied to minister same-sex marriages on the Internet, may not have been a success, but Patti is officially out to her cartoon family.


The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation welcomed the development, describing it as a "ray of light."

The Usual Suspects are outraged. Outraged:
Ed Vitagliano, a researcher for the Mississippi-based American Family Association, says anyone who does not believe that Hollywood has a pro-homosexual agenda learned from Sunday's episode of The Simpsons that that is not the case.

"Even though The Simpsons is generally kind of a wacky animated program, it was still very one-sided in its presentation on the issue of same-sex marriage," Vitagliano says.

The AFA researcher notes how the pastor in the program, Rev. Lovejoy, was portrayed in the episode.

"Reverend Lovejoy was shown to be rather hypocritical," Vitagliano says. "He believes that the Bible does not allow same-sex marriage. And yet when Marge tried to show him and explain to him that, as she put it, scriptural scholars disagree on this issue, he simply began ringing the church bell to drown out her supposedly more reasonable approach to the issue."

Vitagliano points out that although The Simpsons really is not a kid-friendly show, many young people do watch it. And Hollywood, he says, will "pull out all the stops" to promote same-sex marriage -- and children will be influenced by it.

Cartoon homosexuals: bad for one another. Bad for America.
