Some of you may have seen portions of this hysterical and startlingly dishonest production (I doubt many could suffer through more than a few minutes of it) in which an assortment of god-soaked buzzard-people squawk and screech about being discriminated against merely for standing up for their version of what’s right, which in this case means shouting in public about the evils of homosexuality and essentially–no, literally–demanding it not be mentioned anytime, anywhere as something that is acceptable.
OneNewsNow, whose mailing list I for some reason wound up on, issued a release today complaining that this TV special is being “stifled.” Here’s the corresponding Web page.
The whole thing is a breathless and laughable crock, but here are some of the more ridiculous passages.
According to the website SilencingChristians.com, the majority of Americans get their information about the homosexual movement from Hollywood and the secular news media — outlets that deliver what AFA says is a message “tainted by pro-homosexual propaganda.” That is why the pro-family group produced the 14-episode Speechless series that initially aired on the INSP Network, and then put together a one-hour special based on the series.
Let’s assume showing gay couples doing their gay thing really did constitute “propaganda” by some definition, and that homosexuals were really mounting some sort of “movement” (a neat trick, given how high a fraction of them do not disclose their sexual orientation). Since when has this lumbering and anachronistic shitheap of an institution had a problem with propaganda? Okay, okay, I suppose that just because religions rely on propaganda for their very sustenance doesn’t mean they approve of it. It wouldn’t be the first internally contradictory thing about Christianity, or even the hundredth.
AFA is now buying prime-time slots on the nation’s television stations to present that special to provide factual, Christian-based information on the topic. But the pro-family group reports it has run up against blatant “silencing” of that message. “There’s a real threat to our First Amendment and free-speech rights because Christians are being shut down and shut out and shut up by the very people who say they champion freedom of speech,” asserts AFA president Tim Wildmon.
Who outside of the dupes who actually visit this site expecting trustworthy information can see the phrase “factual, Christian-based” without laughing? That’s like a “high-triglyceride starvation diet” or “drug-free anabolic steroid regimen.”
And here’s an idea for poor, beleaguered Timmy. First, have someone explain the First Amendment to you. Second, buy your own TV station and broadcast your worthless and often destructive ideas 24/7, and many godders station already do. If media outlets you happen to not own refuses to show your freakumentary no matter how much you offer them to do so, you have no recourse.
Let’s turn this around. How much dough would it take for Christian stations to start airing educational specials on evolution and the objective roots and history of Christianity? How much money would it take for megachurches to institute factual sex-ed programs and start advising people to consider having their daughters vaccinated against a sexually transmitted potential carcinogen?
And on the “homosexual agenda” thing: If this is what’s happening and it’s an effective campaign, why hasn’t the incidence of homosexuality shot up in recent years? If a conglomerate of liberals, the mass media, Hollywood, Satan, and others comprising the vast cabal aligned against that hideously persecuted U.S. minority consisting of Bible-believing Christians is really hammering away at the message that All Must Be Gay, they really need to focus their message better.
The overriding belief of shameless haters like Timmy Wildmon is that they can put the roaring of the masses to their advantage. They want to control everything through howling public sentiment and decide all matters by sheer plebiscite. This is why they always speak of actions like those of these TV stations as being inspired by “a few of the homosexual, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered supporters out there” and warn that the stations “haven’t heard massively from our folks yet.”
My sincerest hope for outfits like the AFA–a group for which this anti-gay thing is literally an industry–and the people they employ is that they fail unconditionally and apocalyptically, and that anyone making money from their efforts either winds up in the cold streets with nothing or is forced to take a job that doesn’t involve preying on the collective stupidity of America by way of condemning behaviors allegedly frowned upon by a mentally challenged assclown.
