cute furry animals

A quote from this interview on Focus on the Family, where they discuss how to deal with gay activists infiltrating the public school system with their sneaky agenda:

“The gay activists have become very adept at using fun engaging images, cute little pictures of furry animals, to capture children’s imagination and familiarize them with the whole idea of same sex parenting and gay marriage.”

Well, who would ever think of doing something like that?

As a side note, I have always found the cute animals in the book linked to above odd. They are randomly inserted in page after page, generally unrelated to the stories in any way.

    You know, having listened to Focus on the Family often, I do admire that their heart is usually in the right place. It’s just too bad that their heads are often out on vacation, such as on this one! :-)

    “infiltrating the public”
    Like they came from outer space.
    When will the stupidity end!

    BTW, Buddhists are doing the same damn thing. Sneaky bastards!

    re: having your head out on vacation. That’s a big problem with the faith thing, when it can encourage people to devalue critical thinking.

    re: “infiltrating the public”, I saw a comment elsewhere asking how is it “sneaky” to put a book in a library that is listed in a publicly accessible online catalog. Statements like that are not logical, but sound OK in the context where the listeners already agree with what the speaker is saying.

    Animals in a Buddhist book for children? The audacity of using animals in a children’s book is shocking.

    Ah, Focus on the Family. “Used to do a lot of good until fear of homosexuals drove them off a cliff with most of their constituency in the car.” — Internet Monk (from memory)

    And as a 20+ year veteran of Furry Fandom (which in my area WAS first organized by a gay guy), this is just too good a lead-in to pass up.

    Lol. Sounds like a reincarnation of the Tinkie Winkie trevails. Enjoying your blog. All the best.

    are you kidding me?! I mean really? Do we really need to look for something dodgey in everything?
