CBS Los Angeles via Drudge ^ | August 10, 2011 1:57 PM

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Will the Children’s Television Workshop give way to same-sex puppet love?

An online campaign is calling for the producers of TV’s “Sesame Street” to allow characters Bert and Ernie to get married in an attempt to “put an end to the bullying and suicides of LGBT youth”, according to the group’s Facebook page.

The petition letter adds that “[w]e are not asking that Sesame Street do anything crude or disrespectful by allowing Bert & Ernie to marry”, suggesting that the show “even add a transgender character to the show…in a tasteful way”.

This is crazy talk. Why would they want these two to get married?! It is just plain sick. It is quite obvious that Ernie is constantly subjected to mental cruelty by Bert.

Ernie is in an abusive relationship and they should get Ernie into a shelter. He could hang out there with Oscar, the homeless character.

Then Bert could go to an institution to get help controlling his anger. Maybe a group setting that deals with multiple problems like compulsive eating (Cookie Monster) and obsessive compulsive disorder (the Count.)

...such as teabagging, salad tossing or anal sex. Oh wait! That's what makes homosexuals what they are. That would be homophobic not to show Bert and Ernie doing that.

Clearly, this would be both blatantly unfair and very exclusionary to those of us married to goats and donkeys; why not have Bert and Ernie marry chickens and sheep?

Come on, people, let’s get modern!

I always disliked Sesame Street, as long as I could remember. Even for a 5 year old, it was mindless, unfunny, not entertaining, and I could smell the political correctness even then.

Are there heterosexual married couples on there? If not, then, this seems unfair. Seriously, what next, a bdsm episode?

How about a moslem muppet that decapitates a non-moslem muppet?

That sounds absurd, but Hamas TV broadcasts that type of stuff.

They have moslem bunny rabbit characters that kill Jews.

How about a moslem president that betrays the USA and tries to destroy us? Oh, wait....

Sesame Street is brought to you today by the letter “P” (for perverted). Also by the letter “S” (for Sodomy).

I would really like to hear the best argument these pervert maniacs can come up with to jsutify their claim that marrying bert and ernie will somehow stop bullying of perverted youts.

The logic leap is farther than across the Grand Canyon.

Teens do not watch or give two craps about Sesame Street.

They just want to pervert a childhood tv show.

That's the very thing that gets a lot of homo relationships going, usually the bullyee at the behest of the bullyer. Might as well have the Count do the honors, he's creepy enough already.

You shouldn’t call the Count creepy. He obviously has OCD, which is an illness, and appropriate accommodations should be made for that. :)

Some twenty-something b*tch reporterette on CBS’ NYC affiliate is “covering” this too. Why? Because “it’s all over Facebook...and Twitter too!” When the disgraceful “report” was over, an anchor back in studio asked “children don’t understand about sexuality, so why even bring this up?” To that, the other anchor staff had a stunned silence, with the weather guy then saying “send cards and letters” to the offending questioner, who probably will be sent to CBS re-education camp very soon. The FEAR to even question the radical homo agenda was reminiscent of Stalin or ‘1984’. This nation is finished.

When fornicators hold p posters with images of Bert and Ernie
under a banner proclaiming Support Gay Marriage—it really says a lot about the fiction these people believe.Bert and Ernie are fictional characters—puppets. they were not Created by God and are not persons —and cannot do or say anything that is not scripted and directed by those who control these
fantasy characters. Marriage is the Union for life of one man and one woman in the Holy estate of matrimony.Once our Courts acknowledged as much. That divisions have been allowed suggests we are as goofy as the fantasy world of Seseme Street, and those who believe Bert and Ernie ought get “married.”

This is probably the funniest comment I have ever read on this site!! You, my friend are clever.
But what about Telly? Does he have massive paranoia? Or Snuffaluffagus? He needs help with his depression.

As an aside, I have to agree that Bert and Ernie are an unlikely couple. It would be like Bugs and Daffy or Spongebob and Squidward getting married.

~sigh~ Edutainment gone propoganda. It’s one thing to have a deaf character, to educate kids about diversity. But we’re talking morals now, which being deaf has nothing to do with morality. Can’t we just stick with the ladybug’s picnic?

No, you don't want to know. I'll just leave it at that. I wouldn't have known except for an Oprah episode I was forced to endure.

You are probably right - I’ll trust your opinion and not pursue it.

Thanks for the warning.
So many things shock me now days, and I didn’t think I was naive.
