Bring it on Patty...

Love them or hate them... The Simpsons have for 16 years provided us with many hours of entertainment... ranging from the bizarre to the downright stupid. So what's next... may you ask? Well it seems The Simpsons has taken a swipe at the real world controversy of gay marriage by having its latest episode centre on a same-sex union. MARGE'S chain-smoking sister Patty has come out as a lesbian in cult American TV show The Simpsons and marries Veronica" - a golf pro on the female tour. The minister was none other than Homer himself who becme a minister on the Internet charging $200 a pop to conduct same sex weddings. You go... Homie! WOOHOO! Now sit back and watch the conservatist right-wing fanatics crawl out of the sewer and cry foul. Says L Brent Bozell, president of the Parents Television Council, said: "At a time when the public mood is overwhelmingly against gay marriage, any show that promotes gay marriage is deliberately bucking the public mood." Not to be outdone, supporters of gay marriages welcomed the plot "It's saying to those who demonise homosexuality, or what they call the homosexual agenda, anything from 'Lighten up' to 'Get out of town'", said Communications Professor Marty Kaplan. Gotta love America!!
