A considerable amount of my time growing up during my pre and early teen years was spent by watching the original cartoon animation series The Superbook. It is an anime series that chronicled the events in the Bible’s Old and New Testament.
The Bible in its written form can be so intensely deep and enormously ornate in words, idiolect and terminologies. Because of this, its thoughts, teachings and philosophies can be at times so difficult to understand. Because of this, The Superbook then was my early basis and reference on how to understand the stories and teachings of the Bible.
And from among all episodes of this valuable anime series during the 1980s (including its re-runs dubbed in Filipino language), never did I saw Christian, Joy and their toy robot Gizmo encounter an episode that being gay and falling in love with a person of the same sex or gender is a sin.
Maybe it is because the creators of The Superbook series knows that it does not take a person to read, know and understand the Bible to realize that falling in love is not a sin. I guess The Superbook creators knew that love is universal and that love is beautiful. I guess The Superbook knows that there’s no book on “how” and there’s no book on “who” when in comes to love.
The same thought that this music conveys…
Ay lab Superbuk! Ang kumontra, Chaka!
