Did you see the Simpsons “same-sex” episode last night? It was a nightmare come true for most of the conservative’s morality!! Gays kissing, same-sex marriage left, right and centre, sex change etc. It was great watching the episode. I have been watching the Simpsons off and on in the past 3 years and each episode is unique in some way. Lately I have noticed that more and more social and political issues have been put into the stories. I think that’s a great way to promote an opinion although I am sure the conservatives probably cry “foul”. But is it more fun to ridicule conservative’s issue or liberal issues? What do you think?

I personally love it when a conservative tries to put across his/her views in morality terms. “Same-sex is illegal because it says so in the bible”, “Theory of evolution is no better than creation theory”. When I read and hear statements like this one I just laugh and hope that not many people believe this. Have you ever heard of Ann Coulter? I used to find her comments inflammatory but when I read her commentary now, all I do is laugh as to how can a person be so incredibly stupid. Some of the (incredibly stupid) comments from Ann Coulter are as follows :-

  • The ethic of conservation is the explicit abnegation of man’s dominion over the Earth. The lower species are here for our use. God said so: Go forth, be fruitful, multiply, and rape the planet–it’s yours. That’s our job: drilling, mining and stripping. Sweaters are the anti-Biblical view. Big gas-guzzling cars with phones and CD players and wet bars — that’s the Biblical view.”
  • My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times building
  • It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950 – except Goldwater in ’64 – the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted
  • They [Canadians] are lucky we allow them to exist on the same continent (ed – my favourite)

    “Homosexuality is wrong because God says so”..”god also says the white race is supreme”

    Another comment…some Family Association of America has joined forces with certain religious institutions to condemn this simpsons’ episode and have the writer apologize..

    they haven’t stopped there they are now after Shrek 2. Apparently they are against the idea that Pinochio(incorrect spelling) wears women’s underwear (thong). They say that it gives out the wrong message to little children.

    Unfortunately they forgot to look at the bigger picture. This movie had a moral. Moral of the story -Its not what is outside that matters, its what is inside that counts. That is what we need to teach little children.

    All this political bickering for no reason..just to get attention!!
