Stay tuned to faithforward...

For all your cartoon news needs.

From-- Beliefnet:
New York, March 10 - A children's music video that conservatives charge is part of an effort to encourage acceptance of homosexuality is being distributed to more than 60,000 schools nationwide, producers said Thursday.

The video features about 100 children's TV characters including SpongeBob SquarePants, Miss Piggy and Oscar the Grouch singing the 1979 disco hit "We Are Family." It will be accompanied by a teaching guide that promotes tolerance of diversity.


And a smaller distribution effort from Daily Kos' Renee in Ohio:
Remember that PBS "Postcards from Buster" episode that Bush's new Secretary of Education deemed inappropriate for public television because it included a family with two moms? There's an article in today's Washington Post about families getting together at Church of the Pilgrims Presbyterian in D.C. to view the episode.


In response, the American Family Association and Focus on the Family considered a joint release of a Pres. Bush animated series, but had to scrap those plans upon realizing that Bush is already a cartoon character.*

*This is of course a lie.

What do you mean it's a lie? You can't possibly be implying that Bush is a real person, can you?
