Bert and Ernie, no longer pawns in the new sexual revolution

I've often felt--particularly in recent years--that our society is quickly becoming saturated with sexuality to the point that nothing is sacred, nothing is pure--not even children's television.  If we're not imposing sexual labels on everyone, it's as if society hasn't done its job.  And more and more, people seem to live or die by whether or not one is open and transparent about their sexuality.  Well, I have to draw the line when we start sexualizing children's television in the name of political and social agendas.  It just sickens me.  But enough editorial...

A priest friend of mine posted the following article from Lifesite News on Facebook.  I won't repost the whole article by Chuck Colson (, but I highly encourage people to go have a look.  Here's a little taste:

"Christian relationships marked by love, honesty, selflessness, intensity, and a chaste brotherly or sisterly passion for one another are a powerful witness to the love of God in our largely friendless world...Bert and Ernie, in spite of differences in personality and temperament — and without any sexual overtones — are the very best of friends. And our kids need that kind of example. They need it from television, parents, and especially the Church in order to see through the hyper-sexualized fog that’s all around them."
