Jerry Falwell is to blame for popularising the idea of a sexual identity for Bert & Ernie. The inspiration for the muppet characters is pretty clearly The Odd Couple. Adults might read a subtext into the relationship but there’s no reason children would, unless adults, like Falwell, try to impress it upon them.

And now, it seems, Bryan Fisher is hysterically blaming the New Yorker with the bizarre accusation of endangering children, an inadvertently indirect chastisement of Falwell.

I disagree that it’s the cover of the day. They couldn’t find a nice, real, existing gay couple to depict in celebration?

All this does is add gasoline on a fire — we’re accused of being a threat to children — then well meaning heterosexuals use children’s puppets to celebrate? And this is helpful how?
