Straight Dogs and Gay Penguins
Friday, July 21, 2006
(SNN Colorado Springs) Tuesday, Focus on the Family launched a new website. On that website, they introduced Sherman, a basset hound who can bark. "Dogs aren't born mooing, and people aren't born gay," a Focus news release stated.
But this is where they're wrong. Debbie is a three year old springer spaniel from Denver. When Debbie was four months old, she was watching the Showtime series "Queer as Folk" when she started to moo. "It's really quite amazing," says Debbie's owner, Karen Sinatra. "But I think that maybe it is partially my fault for exposing Debbie to lifestyles outside of the social norm.
The site also features the story of Manhattan's gay penguins, Silo and Roy. A few years ago, these penguins started "hanging around" each other. They were touted in the national media as the "most famous gay penguin couple". Then a female penguin was introduced into the equation, and Silo dumped Roy. Now if these were people ending a homosexual relationship instead of penguins, Silo would have a F350 and five kids and Roy would have taken his own life.
