A long time ago, in a politically correct galaxy far far away...
Parents taking their children to see the latest installment of the Star Wars saga may have found themselves in the uncomfortable position of having to explain why Jabba the Hut's uncle Ziro is speaking with a lisp, wearing makeup and feathers and doing nefarious things to his nephew's son. Not exactly the kind of family friendly fun they had in mind.
If the latest trilogy of prequels wasn't enough to sink the once great sci-fi franchise, this sudden embrace of Hollywood-style PC brain washing likely will. If this is the kind of agenda people can expect to find being pushed on them in the upcoming television series that is being spun-off from the film, we're guessing its ratings will be dead on arrival.
It's one thing to be tolerant of people's sexual preference and what they choose to do in the privacy of their own homes. It's quite another to be subtly pushing an agenda on an unsuspecting youth.
George Lucas should be ashamed for interjecting this kind of social issue into a children's movie that is supposed to be about conveying the moral values of right and wrong, good and evil, and having faith in a power greater than your own.
Meanwhile, I am sure it won't go over well with the homosexual community that the one gay Star Wars character is the stereotypical creepy uncle and just so happens to be one of the evil characters in the film.
