Ace Pryhill has an amusing post about the recent Simpson’s episode where Marge’s sister marries her lesbian lover and Homer gets ordained over the internet so he can perform gay marriages. My favorite part is this wonderful quote from the endlessly ridiculous L. Brent Bozell:
L. Brent Bozell, president of the Parents Television Council, criticized “The Simpsons” for addressing the issue of same-sex marriage, though he said he hadn’t seen the episode.
“At a time when the public mood is overwhelmingly against gay marriage, any show that promotes gay marriage is deliberately bucking the public mood,” he said.
Oh my god! Deliberately bucking the public mood! Why, those people should be SHOT. We’ll have none of that freedom of thought stuff here, by God. Hilarious. It’s the freaking Simpsons, people. Who on earth tunes in expecting anything but deliberate bucking of the public mood?
