Remember when Falwell said one of the Teletubbies was gay?
What was going on there?

why would he say something like that? Did he explain how he came to that conclusion?

2. Tinky Winky carried a "purse"
Or what was thought of as a purse.

QED: Falwell labels Tinky Winky as gay. In his feverish, idiotic mind, that is.

4. Rev Falwell's relationship with Tinky Winky is a private matter

between the two of them.

At the same time, the Reverend's confession was a real eye-opener for millions of people who had not realized that either plush cartoon characters without genital organs or Rev. Falwell had a sexual preference.

6. Well.....


He had three reasons:
1) Tinky Winky had a purse-like thing
2) He also had an inverted triangle as his antenna
3) He was also purple, which is a gay pride color (not really...)

So he MUST be gay.

10. Oh come on!! He was gay!
I don't give a rats ass about Falwell, or about gays, but you gotta admit, this one had issues! If I had a name like "Tinky Winky" when I was growing up, I think I'd be gay too!

13. I think it was because the purple one's antenna was a triangle
Quite a stretch.

Of course, one of the talking Teletubbies plush doll said, "faggot faggot." The Teletubbies people tried to blame it on a random syllable babble, or bad use of Cantonese, or something.

14. What a jackass
"The current edition of Falwell's journal contains a serious warning to parents that the large purple Teletubby with the triangular antenna may, in fact, be gay. The article points out that Tinky Winky has the voice of a boy but carries a purse. "He is purple -- the gay-pride color; and his antenna is shaped like a triangle -- the gay-pride symbol."

http://www.datalounge.com/datalounge/news/record.html?r...


This horse's ass Fartwell is nothing but a Pharisee. him and his ilk are constantly trying to make up some evil imagined threat to society to divert attention from the evil they are participating in.

It makes him feel important to make a big noise and stir shit up. Probably has a cocktail wiener sized dick and needs something to make him feel important.

the cocktail wieners association of America, or, CWAA, and we find your reference offensive.

Hallucinating and babbling, like that guy who wrote Reveleations.

19. Falwell was looking for shock value
it had absolutely nothing to do with a beloved kids TV show. BTw, that show works wonders if you're 3 and under. :D

I think of it in the same vein as Dan Quale picking on Murphy Brown. Yet, another attempt by a coservative to seem hip and with it by picking on a popular icon.

Tinky Winky lovers unite! :D :loveya:

20. Hey, why practice tolerance and acceptance of others
when you can be a neanderthalic, hating, hypocritical bigot? Heck, that's more fun anyway, ain't it?

See, that way, people won't notice your shortcomings if they are too busy investigating the idiosynchracies and lifestyles of others who are not like "normal people".

What a dumbass.

You gotta see this!

It involves B*s*, and Falwell's favorite Teletubby.
