Ernie and Bert Celebrate Supreme Court Ruling?

By Bobby Eberle

Is nothing sacred any more? It's quite obvious that the institution of marriage as being between a man and a woman is set for annihilation by those on the left, but one magazine will "celebrate" the recent Supreme Court ruling in a truly odd way. The next cover of The New Yorker magazine will feature Sesame Street's Ernie and Bert cuddling as the decision is delivered.

Under the title "Moment of Joy," the the new cover, shows Bert's arm around Ernie as they pair watch the television coverage of the Supreme Court. For those of you who haven't followed the case, the Supreme Court's ruling essentially wipes out the Defense of Marriage Act and also nullifies the will of California voters by stating that the existing lower court ruling against Proposition 8 shall stand. And this is cause for celebration by Ernie and Bert?

Why even bring children's characters into this? As CNN reports, the so-called "debate" over the "sexual orientation" of Ernie and Bert has actually been settled by Sesame Street itself. The organization issued a statement "insisting that the characters were 'best friends.'"

"Even though they are identified as male characters and possess many human traits and characteristics (as most Sesame Street Muppets(TM) do), they remain puppets, and do not have a sexual orientation," the statement said.

So what's next? Oscar the Grouch wanting a sex change? Or maybe Big Bird becoming a cross-dresser? How about if we keep the children's icons out of it and just let kids be kids.

    The question to be ask, are the advocates of gay marriage really seeking to enlarge the boundaries of marriage or to breakdown barriers?

    Instatiable desire knows no bounds. It is a consuming fire, burning everything and everyone in its path.

    No one is safe, least of all children

    Bert and Ernie? The perfect paradgim of a Progressive Liberal Sock puppet with someone’s fist up their rear moving their mouths and pulling their strings in disoriented misguided pleasure pursuits. Is that what you people desire to become? Liberal sock puppets whose mouths just move when they put their words in? How about Big Bird, the Liberal paradigm of the cute cuddly sterile cuckoo bird, a brood parasite who builds no nest of it’s own but drops their eggs into YOUR nest to raise their DNA denied spawn and offspring. How do you feel swimming in the destroyed American Gene pool of strength and foweled nests of former American Eagles turned vultures, that now resembles a septic tank of dumpster divers and rump fisters, which is where they want to make love to you? Get ready for more pain, and Obamacare expense to pay for the disease cure, a disease that begins in the brain and spreads quickly throughout the body politic. These race of birds only deficate where they eat and fowel your formerly clean love nests and are the debilitating Democrat DDT that will destroy your formerly clean offspring.. This is all they have to offer you.

      Well said, inluminatuo. I think they bring children’s characters into the mix because they are “grooming” America’s kids to not only accept the homosexual life-style as a natural option, but also to encourage same sex experimentation by our youth. Many “loving” adults would be more than happy to show kids the ropes. Nothing is off limits, anyone or anything that “makes you feel good” is fine and dandy. Next step? Adults and toddlers, people and animals… I can’t imagine anything worse but I’m sure there are people out there in liberal land who will come up with something.

    That’s just sick and totally perverted to use Ernie & Bert to wave the homosexual agenda. There had been generations of young children that learned valuable & wholesome lessons from Ernie & Bert and other characters … until the left got their mitts into Sesame Street.

    It’s bad enough that you want to be perverted, but to advocate it from the platform of children’s programming clearly shows that these people have absolutely no morals, no sense of propriety and no limits to their efforts and agenda.

    We are living in the 21st Century’s version of the Fall of Rome … history will repeat itself on both economic and moral basis … it is only a matter of when it will come crumbling down, not if … as long as our “leadership” continues to take us down these dark paths as being appropriate.

      No gritchie…the filth is where the homosexual lobby wants it corrupting and co-opting everything they can to press forward the homosexual agenda. They are not happy to go about their business. They want everyone to accept, view as normal, and even celebrate that which is a sin against God and man. Kindergarteners are already being taught that homosexuality is no big deal, experimentation with sexuality is fine, and parents have no say since it is legal in a state for two people of the same sex to marry.

    Sorry not to be celebring the success of the Gay Nation in wining an “unnatural argument”, that continues to corrode the Moral and Christian foundations that created our Great Nation.

    They should rejoice for now, on their Victory but, everything that goes against God and Nature, ends tragically, sonner or later.

    Everythin that the Left a/k/a Cancer, pushes forward, ends in failure and “pain” for others… It is in their DNA.

    Communist leaders have been quoted as saying “give me your children UNTIL they are five years old and we will be able to control them for life”. That is exactly how it is done. Teaching begins from the day they are born. Christians that join a church for their social life and do not take seriously the REASON for attending church are sadly mistaken about how this is affecting their children. Attending and committing their lives to Christ is a necessity for parents in helping their children get established in life. Schools, unless they are Christ centered, will compound the problems that the child will face. Now that we have Socialist, Communist, etc. as our elected officials and brazenly proclaiming this- we must be more attentive than ever.

    It isn’t good enough to press their agenda on the general population. Now the homosexuals feel they need to co-opt and corrupt even the most basic of childhood relationships, that of being a friend, by placing sexual overtones if not outright visuals into them. They will not be happy until the homosexual lifestyle is considered normal and every child is shown that it is a common, usual, and even to be celebrated life ‘choice’.

    Every society that has gone the directions ours is going, where perversions and abnormal behaviors are accepted as OK and even welcomed, has fallen into oblivion. We are well on our way.

      In ancient Rome they used to pull all the teeth of the “toy children” to make the oral sex more pleasurable for the perverted adults. When we talk about other societies going this route before us, we need to look all the way down the road to how horrible this eventually becomes when we live by the one rule, “whatever feels good to us.” Whenever people live entirely by their own rules it is always a sliding scale, and it doesn’t stop until it hits the bottom of human degradation. We need a God in our lives besides ourselves, to save us from ourselves.

      The Devil is ALWAYS in the deception,,,which our COurts have now empowered, to deceive ourselves that homosexuality which can only be sustained when they are a mionority in society can EVER work when it becomes the majority lifestyle. It is a society killer of the greatest magnitude and will hasten the fall of the American strength which used to reside in the family structure of man/woman/child, but now rots sans real men, real women and real children who have been replaced by hollow creatures of the night who in their self-recognized inability to sustain SELF must feed off the productive personal property and productive persons in the form of our innocent children turned as gay and non-productive as they are.

      It’s just too immoral and they use too many subtle methods to deaden you to it. I don’t trust it anymore.

      shafawn,
      We too have gotten rid of TV in our home. We don’t like to feed junk food to our children because we know it will be unhealthy in the long run even if they love the taste. Even more we don’t want to fill their brains with the junk food and filth that is so frequently found on TV. It is even more important to watch what goes into a child’s brain since an image, once seen, is impossible to erase from the mind.

      We watch videos that we know are upholding the moral and ethical tenets we hold as a family. Favorites include Andy Griffith, Lassie, for fun Mr. Ed, etc. At times we use the computer to watch programing on EWTN or to watch prescreened by parents videos that relate to our home education of our kids. It is more work to not use the TV as a sitter and to home educate but our kids are our responsibility and if everyone relies on the government for the formation of the young who will be able to save our society or rebuild when it is destroyed by the degradation abounding today?

      When my girls were younger, I was extremely selective about what they could and could not watch on TV. When they were not home with me they were with their grandparents who had the same principles that I have about what is good for children. There were many “popular” movies and books which I would not allow them to watch or read when they were younger. Once they got to be high school age, I would allow them more freedom to watch those types of shows; however, they had a clear understanding of what my objections were when they were younger and so were not in the “sponge stage” where they would just soak it all in where it could affect them without their realizing it. Music is another one of those types of things. How many parents truly sit down and listen to the words of the songs their children listen to? Maybe they don’t listen to them at home, but the radio is usually played on the school bus. Kids are allowed to bring movies to school from time to time. There were a couple of times over the years where something was brought into one of my daughters’ classes and the teacher was willing to allow them to watch it, so they would come home and tell me. I would go to the school the next day and complain – but what of all the other parents? The whole use of Bert and Ernie is to desensitize your kids about something that is morally wrong. Pedophiles have always used stuffed animals and live animals as a ruse to get to their child targets. God calls homosexuality an abomination for a reason. Find anything else in the Bible that is called that. There is a reason.

    I don’t usually comment in discussions about homosexuals, because I don’t care what consenting adults do behind closed doors. But here’s my opinion. If two adults want to live in the same household and set up a “civil union” to enjoy the benefits of being able to get medical information in case of emergency, or file joint tax returns, or whatever, let them do it. This includes two sisters, father and son, a dozen fraternity brothers, or whatever combination of consenting adults. But if someone wants to be recognized by their church as a married couple, that’s an entirely different matter, and the government should not be legislating that union. My old 1970s dictionary defines the government and church definitions of marriage as “wedlock” and “matrimony” (“holy matrimony”) respectively. These arrangements need to be defined by the states and not involve the federal government in any way. I don’t know how to solve the question of adoption, though.

    Also, same-sex marriage has nothing to do with civil rights. I saw a website somewhere that explained this better, but civil rights involve discriminating against an easily-observed attribute of a person, like skin color or sex or age or disability. Civil rights are not about something that you claim you believe inside your own head but can’t be verified by an external observer. I believe that it’s offensive for gays to claim they’re subject to the same types of abuses that blacks suffered after emancipation.

    Bert and Ernie have absolutely no place in this discussion.

      Dear haljordan:

      Thank you for your intelligent and on target comments…

      Really happy that they came out of the closet… and I want to think that it took a lot of courage. Booyah! But, make an effort and act civilized, and keep you sexual activities, in private. Have some decorum and respect for yourselves.

      My serious objection to this “endless Agenda of the Gay Nation” is that, it is no longer limited to whatever they want to do, in private, anymore. Now, they do it, openly, in front of adults, as well as children, as an inmoral provocation to our Moral Roots, and Christian believes… They find their acts in public, fashinable and chic…

      Not long ago, viewed a report on TV where a member of the Gay Nation was standing outside a children school, distributing pamphlets to children coming out, with Gay Propaganda, trying to brainwash them with their famous “alternate way of living”… and that my friend is repugnant and immoral way to abuse children minds.

      Many years ago, while in New York City, do remember the Gay Nation began by asking for equality, in the Renting of an Apartment and having the Contract Prepared in Both Names…
      That was the begining , and personally, I didn’t find anything wrong with it but, nor for them to request equality in receiving insurance and other benefits. But now, moving fast-forward, they want to take over the Nation, with the help of brainless corrupt Liberals, Socialists, and the Radical Left -three types of Cancers that destroy everything they touch – with the intense help of “immoral and corrupt politians and members of the Courts”, who need the Gay Nation for their relections and/or own survivals…

      In a nutshell! They must respect the great majority of heteroxecual believers, and take back their shinanigans, inside their bedrooms or kitchen, or whatever: but in private…

      At the same time, show respect, if they ever want to be respected!

      Remember, for the Gay Nation to move forward, your fellow citizens must accept you first, for who you are: Right now, politicians and their operators will continue to use you all, for their own benefit.

      Thank you again for you valuable imput!

    Lindsey Graham is Obama’s front man in the Republican Party he gets Obama’s far left judge appointees confirmed.

    Lindsey Graham saved Obama’s far left radical Judge appointee’s Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. They would have been stopped in committee if it wasn’t for Lindsey Graham.

    The rules of the U.S. Judiciary Committee Article IV are there must be one affirmative vote from the minority to stop debate and bring the subject to a vote.

    They only received one affirmative vote and that vote came from Obama’s front man Lindsey Graham which brought them out of committee and to the floor of the senate for a vote by the full senate. Radical Judge Sotomayer and left wing radical Elen Kagan was then confirmed by the far left socialist democrat senate. The only vote from the republicans that Sotomayer received came from Obama’s front man Lindsey Graham.

    I wouldn’t put it past the producers of Sesame Street to embark on the issue of same sex marriage. It’s all about indoctrinating the children at an early age, despite the fact that parents may not approve of same sex marriage. When these children do attend elementary school it will make it easier for the teachers to continue the indoctrination (at least in crazy California).

    John Wayne Gacy wore a clown costume to lull his victims into believing he was harmless. Ernie, Burt, and Big Bird are just John Wayne Gacys in different costumes, constantly communicating the subliminal message that allowing our government to own a television network is harmless and even beneficial.

    Did Sesame Street actually allow allow this or is it an illustration done by a political cartoonist?

    If Sesame approved this or had any hand in it, I want it to be known to the general public so that they can in turn keep their children from watching, and can express their disgust by not buying the Sesame toys etc.

    As for someone who commented on the future plans of Disney to support a gay agenda, You might like to read a book “Disney: The Mouse Betrayed.” I grew up on Disney, but after the death of Walt, the creative division of the company has changed and not for the better. It is a shocking book.

    The use of unreal characters in unity and happiness of a controversial act that defeats the purpose of marriage works a reverse psychology on me because of my maturity and intelligence. But to Children it sends a unrealistic and fantilitic mixed message. Beloved pupets can always be put away because of truly unnatural content of sexual act. Fantasy is just what it is. Wrong is wrong.

    I am glad that Sesame Street has stood up and refuted the implications imposed on Bert and Ernie. It is absolutely disgusting to target children in this cultural war. However, the proponents of the homosexual lifestyle are counting on “winning” it by using such tactics. Archie comics even came out with their own gay character several years back to politicize and desensitize the rising generation.

    However, as I see it, we are no longer a nation governed by law, but by men. Our Constitution was to ensure that the voice of the people would be the ultimate governing voice and when the will of the people is over-ridden by the judiciary branch which is NOT supposed to make law BUT FOLLOW law then our legal system and our governing system is bankrupt.

    If it is illegal for constituents to put on the ballot propositions for general vote then the court indeed would have recourse in over-turning Proposition 8. However, if that is not the case and, if our government is founded on the premise of “We the People,” (which it is) then this is a direct violation by the government against the voice of the people.

    Laws regarding marriage and divorce were for the protection of children and women. When a woman got married and gave up her place in her parents home or the marketplace to help create a family she and her future children deserved some protection by the state in case her husband turned out to be a lout. She needed an avenue to ensure that she would not be left with a house full of children and destitute. The law was about protecting the family. It used to be understood that strong families would ensure a free and prosperous society. Children properly taught in the HOME the values needed to govern themselves would ensure productive citizens.

    State and Federal Representatives in our legislatures are elected only to be a voice for the people, not to further their own particular biases when it conflicts with the will and voice of the people.

    In an Associated Press story dated October 19, 2012, a Gallup poll estimated that 3.4% of American adults were LGBTs. They surveyed 121,000 people and 4.6% of blacks surveyed, 4% of Hispanics, 4.3% of Asians and 3.2% of whites said they were LGBT. A funny fact: 44% of the LBGT adults said they were Democrats, 43% independent and 13% Republican. My question is how can less than 4% of the population set the standards for the other 96%? How can this 4% decide what our kids should learn in school about the LGBT lifestyle?

      Because communists do not have a soft spot for homosexuals any more than they do for anyone else.
      This is about wrenching power away from conservatives and Christians.

      Communists are Atheists .. so the immorality of introducing homosexuality to small children is another form of socialist indoctrination. Communism cannot replace God unless the family unit is completely broken down and destroyed. Encouraging and pandering to homosexuals is part of a much larger agenda.

      They don’t care what’s ‘good’ for culture or society. They care only about controlling the masses and directing it’s power and wealth to the government .. period.

      That’s why in Communism conglomerate corporations thrive and small individually or privately owned business is made impossible. So the biggest corporations of the world are pushing for America and everyone else to turn the world into communism and wipe out all economic competition. They’ll set the prices and live at the top of the pyramid….. so they think. I’ve read Revelation and it doesn’t work out that way…

      The tail is wagging the dog, a common liberal tactic. Unions are another example of this. The press gins up the pictures and stories so that our kids (and our uninformed countrymen and women) believe 50% of the population is LGBT. Oh for the days when this was the “love” that dared not speak it’s name. Then none of us would be parading our sexual preferences in the streets.

The sick democratic politicians are pushing this very hard! They could care less what this will do a to the non-queer society—-period!

    Thanks guys. It’s easy to speak your mind here because we’re all preaching to the choir. Daily we’re overwhelmed with the reality that our society and culture is collapsing all around us. Coming in massive waves and chunks now every day we’re caught up in a whirlwind of events aimed at destroying the America we grew up in and is no more and honestly will never be again.

    Somebody else commented that America has reached the point of no return and I believe that he is correct. It’s too late to rally or expect congress to suddenly overturn and fix anything. They’ve proven in the last year they will do nothing and have no intentions of seriously organizing any campaign to stand up to Obama’s regime. Obama has greedily and busily gone about destroying the network of safeguards built in by our forefathers to secure us from tyranny.

    I’m sorry to offend anyone but America as we knew it is over. Our generation came in on the tail end of a wonderful experiment in freedom, culture and liberty as the world had never known before or will ever know again until Jesus sets up His kingdom to reign for a thousand years.
    America’s enemies love to point to the vileness of America which embraced slavery in the past but I would like to point out that as a result of slavery there are black men and women in America today who in the extreme poorest conditions of poverty live like kings and queens compared to their counterparts all over Africa. Anyone born and raised in America is blessed just to be here and the opportunity afforded every citizen here is still equal to no other place on earth. All of this wonder and splendor of blessing poured out in such extravagant abundance was due to the faithfulness and grace of God who has honored a contract entered into with the founding fathers of this nation who diligently prayed and sought His favor at it’s inception.

    In fact every country or ‘tribe’ on the earth that has embraced the true light of God’s salvation through Christ has been abundantly blessed and walk in liberty to the extent which they embraced that truth. None differing in extent of freedom because God is any respecter of persons but because the truth will set you free to the extent you surrender to it.

    We have now instead surrendered to vile passions and corruptions and rejected the truth of God’s salvation through Christ and indeed have made his very name a reproach and offense to be spoken in public.

    This is controversial but I believe within the next 5 years the left will bring about legislature that makes it against the law for any preacher or pastor or religious person to deny a gay marriage ceremony or the use of their buildings and to make any public speech against homosexuality punishable by law and that will be carried out now rigorously.
    And when the church protests the REAL motivation will be revealed which is to do away with the tax exempt for the church. With this tax exempt gone the left will hungrily come up with new taxes just for churches to burden and break them down and make them conform to their corruption in attempt to destroy Christianity in America once and for all. Many churches will collapse under the weight of these new taxes in an ever weakening economy and when the Christian churches who are left finally rise up in protest the media will declare them mentally unbalanced and extremists and cults and treat them about like they did the WACO massacre and with equal disdain.

    Then the great falling away will occur. Nobody goes to church anywhere .. not in America and not anywhere else. Christians will have to meet in secret and many will be turned in to the government by people they thought they could trust.

    So what is the good news? Christ is coming to get us. The rapture is upon us. THIS Is the season.. THIS is the generation.
    Hold fast to your profession of faith and pray for your family that they follow Jesus because nobody knows the hour or the day of His return.
    God bless you all :)

    As it’s been preached to me many times, the biggest weapon of the enemy is “discouragement.” All he has to do is plant the seeds of discouragement, and many times, people will do the rest all by themselves, by giving up and quitting. Well, I think it’s important that we do not give up. We know right from wrong. It’s important that we continue fighting the good fight, regardless of the changes that seem to be going on against our will.

    If you’ve ever studied the Revolution, you’ll know that things looked very bleak for the little Continental Army at the start. But they did not give up. And thank God they didn’t. Now we must honor their memory and sacrifice by not giving up either. I believe we can turn this country around again. But it will take all of us becoming very active in our local politics and national politics to get things sorted out. We need to contact our congressmen and senators. We need to attend protests, comment on message boards, start blogs, and maybe even our own newspapers. We’ll need to talk to everyone and anyone, and spread the message as to why conservatism is right for this country. I don’t believe the greatest country on the planet is doomed just yet.

      Absolutely! If the founders had given up, we’d be British subjects today!

      I think your suggestions are spot on, because we know that there are a lot of good people out there who feel the same. We’ve got to speak up and out in order to reach them thru whatever avenues necessary. I think many people have come to believe that their vote really doesn’t count, but that is the sure road to serfdom.

      We need to teach our children about the Constitution, and we need to be involved in our system. Each generation has to fight it’s own battles to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution–and protect the moral fabric of our society. As one of the founders stated (and I paraphrase), “our Constitution was made for a moral people.” Obviously, we cannot allow our politicians to be the only ones entrusted with that charge. It is “We the People” who must, like the founding generation, pledge all and not give up.

      The way I see it, “decent, hardworking, true Americans are NOT bringing the fight to the enemies of our Country, domestic and foreign, hard enough. Most people have become too complacent…

      I always remember what Pres. Ronald Reagan said: FOR EVIL TO SUCEED, THE GOOD HAVE TO DO NOTHING! and that is, exactly, why there is so much evil going on in our Great Nation…

      WE have to close ranks, and fight Evil a/k/a liberals, progressive, socialists, progressive and stealth communists, in our Country till they are defeated, and vanquished, once and for all!

      America can not let its children come close or exposed to sickning and inmoral education ideas. It is against everything GOD tought us.

      GOD created A MAN AND A WOMEN, AND TOLD THEM TO MULTIPLY: HE DID NOT CREATED, TWO MEN OR TWO WOMEN!

      I’ve contacted my representatives so much I have them on speed dial. I’ve email them almost every week and keep all their correspondence. I’ve even gotten phone calls from their aids before and I appreciate that but it doesn’t seem to make any difference does it? Can you unscramble an egg?

      It’s not that I give up .. it’s that I believe the majority of the people want to live a lifestyle contrary to the accountability and morality that the country was founded on by our forefathers. We are NOT a Christian nation and that IS THE source of all blessing.

      And I can no longer keep myself in a state of upset over what the communists are doing. My citizenship is in heaven. I know who I belong to and I know where I’m going. I know the book of Revelation is at hand. You know it too if you search your heart. We are right at the door of it.

      My heart is turning away from the desperate cry to save our political nation and more toward the desperate cry to save every individual soul I come across with the truth of salvation through Jesus.

      I still pray for our nation every day. I pray hearts and lives would be softened to the truth of God’s love and mercy and they would want to know HIM who is the source of all healing and blessing.

    “But reams of post-election analysis found that even if Mitt Romney had won 70 percent of the Hispanic vote, he still would have lost the election. Low white voter turnout coupled with a record high number of black voters made Obama an easy winner.” (Guzzardi: Gang of Eight…”

    Let’s see, as I understand it the black population represents about 12% of the population, now how could that so tip the scales unless there were a lot of white/other voting blocks supporting him? Even the Hispanic population cannot make up that much of a difference in the equation. It’s not that we need white voter turnout as much as we need high numbers of people who represent conservative principles to turn out and vote for the candidate who best represents that.

    Low turnout by any one opposed to the direction our country is headed in is the real culprit for the hijacking of our nation. It is a natural consequence that when the majority fails to do their civic duty and people do not vote in their local and federal elections then those who do will win—even if it goes against what the majority values.

    I believe the majority of Americans still are Christian, and still hold conservative values. However, what the majority has failed to do is be an active voice in shaping our government. A hinge is a small part of the door but it directs the course of something which is far greater. So it is with America, if we allow the small percentage of countrymen to be the only voice in the public square then what can we expect other than to taste the bitter fruits we are now reaping.

    I agree with a previous sentiment of someone else that hearts need to be changed.

      I would also mention that voter fraud almost certainly played a part in the last election. When 130% of registered voters turn out to vote in certain precincts, and 100% of those “voters” vote for the exact same ticket, one would think eyebrows would be raised. It’s the Chicago way gone nationwide.

      @pwpmmp–Yes, I agree, and I have had many questions about that too. I find it hard to believe the election was an honest one. My biggest question is–WHO authorized the outsourcing of counting our votes? And when it was discovered by the media, why wasn’t it corrected? Now that alone makes conspiracy theories look mighty valid. If you have the answer to that one, please let me know.

      This is where apathy and lack of involvement by the majority sticks us with men and women in our legislative halls who fail to uphold the Constitution as they have sworn to do. As a nation, we have failed to be the kind of enlightened citizens who would prevent what was meant for our protection (The Constitution) to be used as a tool for tyranny.

      An excellent series on the Constitution is called, “Constitutional Literacy” by Michael Farris. We need to educate children and adults on the principles that were meant to keep us free. This series takes real time court cases and compares them to the intent of the Constitution. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Education is the source of change be it for good or evil.
