So Could My Picture Over There Be an Icon?

Interfax quotes Moscow Patriarchate spokesman Fr. Mikhail Prokopenko:

I would not say that absolutely all cartoons... are immoral and offensive. In fact, some of the cartoons... can even be called Christian and promoting family values - take, for instance, The Simpsons, a cartoon series that I, for one, really like.

Just kidding about the icon joke.

HT: Orrologion.

    Remember when the Simpsons first came out and there was such furor over how immoral it was and how it would destroy the fabric of society. What a difference 20 years makes.

    Does that say more about the change in culture over the past twenty years, or that the critics of the society look for easy blame for societal ills but completely misplace them?
