I supposed now that Reverend Falwell has passed on, it is okay for the liberal media to start promoting the Teletubbies as gay friendly again. Or, is it?
Articles published all over the web today take issue with Poland’s government looking into the famous children’s TV show to determine if this is homosexual propaganda aimed at introducing the gay lifestyle to young children.
As Ann Coulter pointed out on her webpage,the main media outlets like People magazine, Time magazine, and the NY Times were celebrating Tinky Winky’s ‘out and proud’ way of life before Falwell ever mentioned anything about them.
Now today after Poland has decided to invesigate this, the article mentions how “conservative” their government is and of course drags Jerry Falwell back into the issue by implying that Falwell was the first one to make the homosexual connection to the TV show:
“The 10-year-old Teletubbies, which features four rotund, brightly coloured characters loved by children around the world, became a target of religious conservatives after Falwell suggested Tinky Winky could be homosexual.”
If I was a gay man (oh wait, I am!) I would think to put the needs and safety of children before my own insane agendas. Globally, parents have rights to make sure their children are not being baptized in activist blather whether it be on PBS or in a classroom.
What should be taught in a classroom, OR on the Teletubbies is the ultimate respect for ALL people without having to shine spotlight on one issue like homosexuality.
Respect and decency is one thing but acceptance is quite another. Let parents do their jobs.
