Seen any Christians on TV lately?

From Kelly Boggs and the Baptist Press.

“All television is educational television,” observed Nicholas Johnson, former head of the Federal Communications Commission. “The question is: what is it teaching?”

If TV content is any indicator of what the medium is seeking to advance, then homosexuality is in and Christianity is out.

As previously reported in Baptist Press, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) released Aug. 6 its first-ever “Network Responsibility Index” which examined the inclusion of “lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender” themes or characters on TV.

The index found that 15 percent of all of ABC’s primetime programming hours during a 12-month span contained either homosexual characters or the discussion of homosexuality. The CW was second at 12 percent, followed by CBS (9 percent), NBC (7 percent) and Fox (6 percent). For their content ABC was rated “good,” the CW, CBS and NBC “fair” and Fox “poor.”

If you include the non-prime-time programs and cable shows that are friendly to GLAAD’s cause, there are positive portrayals of homosexuality 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.”

    As a Christian and a writer I find it really sad! I can write about some hard hitting events going on in the US and all over the world. I can write and make people mad over my opinions. I get some pretty hot comments.
    I am not bothered by this.

    BUT when I write about MY LORD and anything CHRISTIAN..I get hate mail and threats!
    I AM bothered by this!

    The US is supposed to be the land of the free! Which to mean would be freedom to express your beliefs no matter what they are..PERIOD!

    FDR spoke of the 4 MAIN freedoms (in his eyes in a speech for the entire world, really)

    freedom from fear
    freedom of speech
    freedom from want
    and freedom of religion
    We have lost most of these freedoms.
