Wingnut site: Oprah 'endorses homosexuality again' on upcoming show
Lifesite‘s a web portal that says it is “dedicated to issues of culture, life, and family” — and features a thumb-sucking fetus on its “About us” page). It is fixated on Oprah’s apparent influence on pro-gay and pro-choice politics, and they want to put a stop to it.
This time the site is getting on Oprah’s case because she will have on as a guest, the straight guy that appeared on the fourth episode of Morgan Spurlock’s documentary series “30 days: Straight Man in a Gay World.” (Spulock’s also the man behind Super Size Me). A description of the episode:
A God-fearing 24-year-old conservative homophobe from red state America travels to San Francisco’s Castro District to live in what is notoriously known as one of the gayest areas of the country. As he joins a gay sports team, works a job that caters to gay clientele, attends gay-friendly church services and lives with a gay roommate, he gets an inside view of what it is like to live as a minority that still elicits strong feelings of hatred among many Americans.
Throughout the 30 Days this former youth minister and member of the military will have his Bible-rooted values severely challenged as these important issues become very personal.
This show has really set off the Lifesite people.
During this particular segment a farmer, Ryan Hickmott, from Michigan spends 30 days with a gay marketing consultant in San Francisco. The program notably did not address the sexual practices of many homosexuals that are said to often eventually lead to disease and other serious physical and psychological consequences.
While Hickmott doesn’t disavow his belief that homosexuality is contrary to biblical teaching he does say that he has “a very positive image of homosexuals.” He claims to be newly “open-minded, matured,” and “a better person.” He admits to having made uninformed opinions in the past.
For this reason Oprah is bringing the man onto her show. In 2000 Winfrey was the keynote speaker at a luncheon held by the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, a group whose priority this year is to ensure that minors, without parental consent, maintain their access to contraceptives and abortion. Winfrey’s cameo appearance on the “coming out” episode of the TV show “Ellen” in 1997 raised concerns at the time over the promotion of homosexuality.
They also cite this bullsh*t from the Family Research Council.
Hollywood and the media relentlessly propagate the image of the fit, healthy, and well-adjusted homosexual. The reality is at polar opposites to this caricature: homosexual and lesbian relationships are typically characterized by instability, promiscuity, and unhealthy and risky sex practices, factors that greatly increase the incidence of serious and incurable sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including hepatitis, HPV, syphilis, gonorrhea, and AIDS.
