Conservatives are raising a stink about the latest episode of the hit TV series Glee concerning bullying of a gay student. The bully, who's gay himself, apologizes in last night's special 90-minute show with the help of a closeted lesbian student, then the whole school gets comfortable with who they are and belts out Lady Gaga's "Born This Way." And for a really happy (upcoming) ending, the now-liberated bully and his former victim will apparently be named prom king and queen (the extra that spilled those beans has reportedly been fired).

This is Glee creator Ryan Murphy's "latest depraved initiative to promote his gay agenda," conservative media critic Dan Gainor told ABC News. Gainor called Glee's fictional school "the gayest high school in the history of mankind. This is clearly Murphy's vision of what growing up should be, not most of America's," he added. No response yet from the Glee crew. Last month, former Saturday Night Live comedienne Victoria Jackson called a kiss between two gays on the program "sickening." (Read more Glee stories.)
