Family Research Council blasted on twitter for attack on children's show featuring same-sex wedding

Here is a pleasant piece of news as we begin the week. Recently, the PBS animated series Arthur featured a same-sex wedding when one of its characters, Mr. Ratburn, came out and got married.

Naturally, this has gotten the anti-LGBTQ industry angry, with many crying about the so-called "indoctrination" and "recruitment" of children into the "homosexual lifestyle."  One of these groups, the Family Research Council, took to twitter to say so:

This did not go well for FRC because the majority of the responses to its tweet blasted the hate group for its attack on the cartoon, marriage equality, and same-sex families.

It was a wonderful thing for me to watch because I can remember a time when a majority would endorse FRC's views. To see the acknowledgement of LGBTQ lives, relationships, and families (on a children's program no less) was sweet enough. But to see a huge number of folks defending this acknowledgement was icing on the cake.
