Green Lantern is gay announces DC Comics.

Kafka had it right when he pointed out that deviant activity that is accepted eventually becomes mainstream and normalized. Consider his parable: Leopards break into the temple and drink the sacrificial chalices dry. This happens again and again repeatedly. Finally it can be counted on beforehand and becomes part of the ceremony. -Kafka, Parables.

Marketing a homosexual equivalency aganda has no place in the pages of entertainment material marketed towards young children.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The bad news is homosexual activity is becoming mainstream and is now being introduced to children in their comic books as morally equivalent and even commendable. What sexuality ever has to do with comic books is a fine question, but one that remains outside the scope of this reporting. What is understood is, DC comics has come out of the closet, announcing that the original Green Lantern character is gay.

The homosexual character will be appearing on "Earth 2" in a fictional parallel universe from ours. However, kids will read about him in our world, the real world, everyday.

Comic book characters are fictional constructs, so it's not like someone needs to save Green Lantern from his own deviant ways, but these fictional stories are sold to both children and adults as mainstream reading material. Superheroes can make desirable role models for children, often exemplifying character traits we'd like our children to emulate. Examples include patriotism, loyalty, integrity, justice, righteousness, self sacrifice, heroism and, yes, other virtues. Remember when we wanted our children to be virtuous? 

Now thanks to an editorial decision, we are somehow expected to add homosexual practice to that list?

Meanwhile it's not just DC Comics. Marvel Comics announced last month that the pages of the X-Men comic book would soon feature a homosexual "wedding". 

Superheroes should be protecting the innocent, catching bad guys, and serving up justice. Overt homosexual practice, and promoting the agenda related to promoting it, should have no place or in the pages of comic books especially when they are marketed towards children. The fact that it does is just one more sign that the homosexual equivalency agenda is rolling full steam through the fabric of our nation.
