March of the Penguins Redux

I found this via Wonkette:
Today, the New York Times investigates the Christian conservatives' fifth column: Penguins. Turns out conservatives have become unlikely champions of the documentary "March of the Penguins," saying, among other things, that the film promotes monogamy and family values. Clearly, no one has told them about the gay penguins (of course, they choose to be gay). Says one minister:

"Some of the circumstances they experienced seemed to parallel those of Christians," he said of the penguins. "The penguin is falling behind, is like some Christians falling behind. The path changes every year, yet they find their way, is like the Holy Spirit."

It seems like a stretch but, hey, it's an improvement over talking vegetables.

UPDATE: Several readers have called attention to penguin's not-so-socially-conservative serial monogamy. Also, fathers take off pretty early. Republicans soft on deadbeat penguins!

Well - just wait until they find out about Wendell and Cass. Or Roy & Silo.


The good news for the conservatives keeps flying in: German zoo tempts gay penguins with straight penguins from Sweden.
How about this: Gay penguins found in Japanese aquariums.

US religious conservatives are enjying something from my country ?? From F R A N C E ? I mean...

I do not know if I have to be happy of such a twist or if I have to be suspicious. I'd go with suspicous.
