The funniest thing is that the episode in question scarcely promoted anything in favor of (or against) gay marriage.  It presents a lesbian couple for a few minutes, culminating in Buster being surprised that their kids have "a lotta moms." I suppose some people were upset that Buster didn't launch into a tirade and subsequently set fire to their home. 

The show merely presents something from a distinct sub-culture within the United States, not unlike it presents various cultural situations in other countries that are arguably more controversial than gay marriage.   For instance, children conforming to Muslim Sharia Law, 5-10 poverty-stricken trailer park kids jam-packed into a single crammed bedroom, or stray dogs and other beasts roaming the streets of India.   

By the same logic, I suppose PBS must also promote and endorse abject poverty and allowing wild animals to roam free in the streets among children.   :D

This is just another case of an extreme minority causing a ruckus and ruining things.  In reality, most conservatives could care less about something like this.
