From the Paper:

"Power of the Penguins: Myths and Morals of the Religious Right In this article, McKnight defies the Christian right's arguments that penguins in the film March of the Penguins can be used as examples of morally superior beings that humans should emulate. McKnight's main arguments are that the penguins in the film do not support the Right-wing arguments that penguins exemplify monogamy, practice self-sacrifice for their children and mates, are pro-life or are moral in any way shape or form. According to McKnight, not only are these claims not shown in the movie, they are not even supported by other evidence."
