    Good Lord (Deeply Political/Religious Topic)

    Good Lord, kids' television sure has gotten supportive of the gay/lesbian/transgendered/bisexual community. I have NickJr. on right now, and Diego (I think), just had a rainbow flag for a "finish line."

    In my opinion, this is great! Showing support for all people is something that, I think, has been missing in our society as of late. Anyone else remember the Des Moines community being against the high school that put on the play about the Matthew Shepard murder?

    There are a lot of ignorant people in the world, that cannot accept anyone for who they are. There are so many other problems we have in this country, I just dont understand why we focus in on sex so much. I guess that all comes from this being a religious based country.

    Not a gay thing here, but cartoons suck these days. I remember being a kid in the 80's and you could get up and watch cartoons from 7:00 til noon on 3 channels (abc nbc cbs) that were good. Cartoons on saturday mornings suck. Thank goodness for the boomerang channel, so my son can watch some of those good old cartoons.

    Not gonna lie, but I was beyond ****** when Cartoon Network created the Boomerang Channel. I loved watching the Flinstones and the Jetsons before that channel took them away.

    The intro to My Gym Partner is a Monkey is a howl. The cartoon itself isn't good.

    Re: Good Lord

    I'll agree on the cartoons sucking these days. What ever happened to the good cartoons that you could actually understand? I remember growing up on The Flintstones, Duck Tails, Tail Spin, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dennis the Menace, Goof Troop, Transformers, Hee Man, Thundercats, Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers to name a few. Then you had the non-animated shows like Alf, Dukes of Hazzard and The A-Team for instance.

    I've tried to watch some of this crap now and some of these cartoons are the dumbest things in the world with no story lines. And what the heck is a Spongebob Square Pants?

    Of course perhaps they come about their view from a historical perpsective of homosexuality being a disorder that is against natural law and like all things disordered have problems accepting them.

    I agree with all of your post until that last line. SpongeBob is by far the best new cartoon out there (just above Fairly Odd-Parents). Both of those shows are hilarious!

    The thing to me is, even if you do see homosexuality as a "disorder," (I don't think it is) why shouldn't they be allowed the same things heterosexuals are? If it is a "disorder," why should they not be allowed to adopt and/or get married? If it's because of "tax breaks" that's a rediculous reason to say that someone shouldn't be allowed to have a child or legally commit to one person.

    From my point of view it is because the very basic building block of society is the family and intentionally introducing disorder into that building block is a recipe for further eroision. If the persons disorder was Child Molestation instead of homosexuality would you still advocate them being allowed adoption?


    As far as marriage goes, I don't think something so far removed from God's law should seek a title designed by Him. of course I am so set in my ways I don't support hetero unions unless performed in God's presense i.e. I don't htink people married by a judge are truly married. I think they have a legal arrangement to derive the tax and other social benefits but are not a married couple.

    I agree. Now, I realize that all the cartoons I watched as a tike probably reinforced deprecated gender stereotypes and chided any hints at homosexuality/overt femininity in male archetypes by moving really fast and blowing stuff up... but dammit that's the way I like it! I'm not sure why there are no longer any shows like the Transformers, G.I. Joe, Ninja Turtles (the good one from the 80's), and so on. I'm not convinced that activism and diversity have tainted the awesomeness factor of modern cartoons; I think that as a whole the quality has just sunk.

    As far as marriage goes, I don't think something so far removed from God's law should seek a title designed by Him. of course I am so set in my ways I don't support hetero unions unless performed in God's presense i.e. I don't htink people married by a judge are truly married. I think they have a legal arrangement to derive the tax and other social benefits but are not a married couple.

    Hmmm.... interesting points. However, I think that child molestation is something that is far more severe than consenting adults initiating in a sexual act. I'm not sure if child molesters are able to adopt, but I think they'd be more likely to adopt a child if they are heterosexual than a homosexual couple currently is.

    I agree with the marriage thing, actually. I've never been a fan of state-sanctioned marriages, but the fact of the matter is that hetero couples CAN get married in such a way (ie: outside of the church) but homosexual couples are unable to. In his respect, I think homosexual couples should have that ability. If a church says that they won't perform a homosexual marriage, that's fair, as that they aren't a federal group. But by not allowing a judge sanctioned marriage, we're alienating people and citizens of our country, and the government is there to protect the rights OF ALL CITIZENS. As long as they (homosexual couples) are not allowed to have a state-sanctioned marriage/civil-union at the very least, we are telling them that they are an inferior people in a way. (Think women and voting until the 1940's)

    Which of God's laws are we talking about here? "Love your neighbor as yourself" or "Judge not lest ye be judged"?
