    Archie Andrews will die taking a bullet for his gay best friend.
    The famous freckle-faced comic book icon is meeting his demise in Wednesday's installment of "Life with Archie" when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on Kevin Keller, Archie Comics' first openly gay character. Andrews' death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals.
    "The way in which Archie dies is everything that you would expect of Archie," said Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO. "He dies heroically. He dies selflessly. He dies in the manner that epitomizes not only the best of Riverdale but the best of all of us. It's what Archie has come to represent over the past almost 75 years."
    Keller's character first joined Veronica Lodge, Betty Cooper, Jughead Jones and Reggie Mantle in the Archie Comics spin-off "Veronica" in 2010. He later appeared in his own solo title. In "Life with Archie," Keller is a married military veteran and newly elected senator who's pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting.
    "We wanted to do something that was impactful that would really resonate with the world and bring home just how important Archie is to everyone," said Goldwater. "That's how we came up with the storyline of saving Kevin. He could have saved Betty. He could have saved Veronica. We get that, but metaphorically, by saving Kevin, a new Riverdale is born."…

    That's the most absurd buncha junk I ever read. Archie was supposed to be funny because he was a self-absorbed, horny idiot. How does he get from there to "selfless hero" and what makes the editors think they have to introduce to prepubescent children the concept of gay marriage, gay "rights" and gay agendas?

    Glad my kids are adults. I'd burn this stuff in the front yard if they brought it home. Which they wouldn't have in the first place.

    Just saying ... <-- for the participants in the "What Words Drive You Crazy?" thread.

    What he said.

    The indoctrination starts so early. I was watching Sprout the other day with my grandson. Talk about bombarding kids with junk! They have a superhero type that eats superhero "candy" that happens to be fruit and vegetables. Following that was a craft project that was good for the environment. One character wanted viewers to join him in casting a spell against something harming trees. I lost track of all the foolishness but after a few minutes of I had to turn the channel.

    Archie taking a bullet for a gay guy fits the narrative.

    It's not your ....

    .... mama's world any longer .... I am waiting for Clark Kent to move from the phone booth to the closet and then come out! And for Batman to to be sued by Batboy for years of molestation!

    Who gives a "flip?" We should all give a flip or more than a flip, because this is the kind of subtle brainwashing, the liberal left is putting in the mindset of our children and their children's children to normalize everything from abortion, to empathy for the illegals, to seeing gays as a way of life, to collecting welfare and enjoying sending texts to your friends on a government paid cell phone! Don't worry about the signal light, if you don't feel like stopping, just speed up and go right on through, and if you hit and kill someone in the process of breaking that law, get out of there and keep a low profile, chances are no one will ever catch you, because we as a society finally convinced the powers that be, that red-light cameras were an invasion of privacy. Nevertheless, when it comes to the invasion of our borders, that is an okay thing!

    It is in the music, the news, the television sitcoms, and on the large screens! Everywhere you look, this society we live in has come out of the liberal university classroom theories to infiltrate our social structure in an attempt to sway the masses to the point where the new morality is love, love, love (I think that was a Beatles chorus line?); and God will surely not judge anyone for practicing love and accepting sin, because that is what Jesus was all about, wasn't it? Except one another for who they are, drop the better than thou approach, and please don't quote offensive verses from the Bible, because in my world, God has only heaven for all of us. Hell was a figment of the religious person's imagination used to control others!

    A loving God would surely never send anyone to hell! Even old Archie is a sort of Jesus by giving his life for his gay friend to continue in life, populating this society with an atitiude to live and let be, gay if that is their choice!

    It is not your mama's world any more! Things are a changin' and not always for the good of the people as a whole!

    Archie isn't important .....

    But...the morals that are being written into these one-time cool comics are important! If we continue to turn our heads, we have only ourselves to blame for what this society becomes!

    I do not like or agree with 90% of Islam, but when it comes to their stance on homosexuality, I admire their stand! I don't agree with the Mormon faith, because it is a cult, but they have stood united against homosexuality!

    Unlike the church in Western civilization, Ilsam and Mormonism have drawn a moral line in the sand and so far; they are not allowing anyone of their following, to cross it! While the once evangelical churches of year's past, is no longer giving into to a lack of moral standards in order to keep attendance from ending their denominations as a whole!

    We listen to a lot of old time radio shows. Every now and then, they'll throw an episode of "Archie Andrews", the old radio show on which the comics are based, into the mix.

    It's not one of the better programs, not even by 1940's standards, but it's very family friendly and good for the kids.

    Sometimes, the time comes to just let some things go. If Archie is going to become a pro-perversion, anti-2nd Amendment activist, then maybe it's time to let him die.
