So there's this show on PBS called "Postcards From Buster" or something, and it features this animated rabbit (relation to Bugs?) called Buster Bunny, who travels around the USA visiting children and documenting how they live.
According to the New York Times:
One episode featured a family with five children, living in a trailer in Virginia, all sharing one room. In another, Buster visits a Mormon family in Utah. He has dropped in on fundamentalist Christians and Muslims as well as American Indians and Hmong.Wait a minute. This show is produced using federal funds. How dare they visit a fundamentalist Christian family! I mean, some people wouldn't want their kids exposed to fundamentalist ideas like that.
I'm writing to PBS to ask them not to show any more whacko religious groups on their show. I think you should too.
In case you didn't pick up the sarcasm in the above (or read the original story which you probably have to pay for now) my outrage is a sad, clownish mirror of the outrage of some Christians that the Buster Bunny show featured a family in Vermont with two moms.
As if lesbians blow up buildings or burn books, doctors, or witches like Fundamentalists do.
