Apparently, Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie are gay

Cover Story: Bert and Ernie’s “Moment of Joy”

Next week's cover of the widely circulated New Yorker magazine.


“It’s amazing to witness how attitudes on gay rights have evolved in my lifetime,” said Jack Hunter, the artist behind next week’s cover, “Moment of Joy.” Hunter, who originally submitted his image, unsolicited, to a Tumblr, continued, “This is great for our kids, a moment we can all celebrate."

Huffington Post thinks the cover is "amazing", in a good way.
"The New Yorker celebrated the Supreme Court's historic rulings on gay marriage with one of its most awesome covers of all time. It marked the moment by featuring what many people consider to be one of the most famous gay couples in pop culture: Bert and Ernie. In the magazine's cover, titled "Bert and Ernie's Moment Of Joy," the two Sesame Street characters are shown snuggling together on the couch as they watch the landmark Supreme Court rulings on television."

It might be a moment that gay rights activists celebrate, but the celebration will be a moment in time compared to the wrath of a holy God leveled upon the unrepentant sinner.

A commenter at the NewYorker site called "HonestGirlScouts," wrote, "Perhaps the saddest legacy of the homosexual lobby is that no one can be friends anymore. We are all potential sex partners, in the eyes of gay activists. What a loss to society and humanity that everyone must be on their guard, must have an extra wall of self-consciousness, even amongst peers of the same sex. To "fundamentally change" the friendship of Bert and Ernie into a sexual relationship shows an intolerance for fraternity and belies the degrading nature of the LGBTQI movement."

LGBTQI stands for L-esbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Trans-sexual, or Questioning, and Intersex. Don't ask me what intersex is. I don't know and I'm not looking it up.

And messing with children, putting such sin in front of them? Using an innocent childhood icon, one that has been used to bring education and entertainment to kids for over 50 years?? O! Jesus wept.

"Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea." (Matthew 18:6)

  1. It is sickening to think about what this all may mean to young children. And what about teens and young adults? What if a person makes a sexual advance towards them and they become defensive...will they be accused of being homophobic or hateful? Especially when it seems as though the gay rights are not only equal but special rights.
    Is the definition of sodomy going to be obliterated from our dictionaries, and from our language or changed now?
    Something considered a crime only a decade ago is now considered a consumation of marriage!

    I wonder who will be allowed in public restrooms...will they become unisex? I know this has been an issue in Canada recently, although I am not sure of the final outcome of it as of yet.

    My husband and I shut off the tv for that entire day when the decision was announced, as all you saw was the PDA (public displays of affection amongst the gays)
    And now Bert and Ernie!...I knew there was a reason they freaked me out so much as a child. LOL!
    Hope the Lord comes back soon...especially for the sake of the children!
    And when he does, I wonder if he will instruct us to not look back like Lot's wife did when Sodom was destroyed? (just kidding...I know we will be with him in glory by then ;)

  2. "Perhaps the saddest legacy of the homosexual lobby is that no one can be friends anymore. ... What a loss to society and humanity that everyone must be on their guard, must have an extra wall of self-consciousness, even amongst peers of the same sex."

    So true, and so very very sad.

    And leading a child astray - infuriates the Lord immensely. A lot of children's programs (most, maybe all?) though are designed to indoctrinate. That's why Scripture says train up your child in the LORD.

    But even in this dark hour, there is ample hope in Christ, forgiveness of sin, and true freedom and peace with God. Repent while today is still today.
