As everyone waits to see how the Supreme Court will deal with the emerging trend in the United States towards equality for gay and lesbian couples, the news that the Disney Channel will have a child with two moms in a show on one of its featured series should say just about all that needs to be said about the role of gay couples in this nation.

|These look like good Americans to us|
In a first for the Disney Channel, next season an episode of Good Luck Charlie will feature a family with two moms.
Producers are currently casting the couple, with production set for next week. The episode will air in early 2014 as part of Good Luck Charlie's final season. Because Good Luck Charlie is coming to a close, the characters are only expected to appear in this one episode.
In the storyline, parents Amy and Bob Duncan (Leigh-Allyn Baker and Eric Allan Kramer) set up a playdate for preschooler Charlie (Mia Talerico) and one of her new friends. When the kid arrives, the
learn that Charlie's pal has two moms. That's fine, but the potential new
friendship is put to the test as one mom chats with Amy, and the other is stuck
listening to Bob's dull stories. Duncans
In actual fact the Disney corporation has for a long time been a leader in providing equality for gay and lesbian employees and while this may seem horrific to the so-called-but-not-really religious conservatives, the episode where a character has two moms is just the next natural step.
So regardless of what the Supreme Court says on gay marriage, equality and decency is on the march. And no conservatives, you cannot stop it, and why on earth would you want to?
