Bert and Ernie gay marriage controversy continues

Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie have been roommates for more than four decades.

And some people have long believed the two Muppets are more than just friends.

Now, just weeks after New York legalized same-sex marriage, there's a cyber-campaign pushing to let the pair tie the knot.

A page on Facebook called Bert and Ernie Get Married already has close to 7,000 fans.

But the page was quickly challenged on-line by opponents of gay marriage.

Another page named Bert and Ernie Should NOT Get Married has close to 700 fans.
