Follow-up on Fall TV

So, I scanned the most recent episode of Stargate: Universe and found a lesbian cuddling scene. No, we won't be watching that show anymore. That was the last straw. Bummer.

You know what really chaffs me is that on network television (not the barely more graphic cable) Hollywood pretty much portrays every gay and lesbian relationship in some sort of ideal way, as if those relationships are somehow more meaning, trusting, and loving, as they do what they do in the face of this supposedly horrendous outside opposition. So very rarely do you see a normal, traditional relationship displayed with such a positive spin. Maybe because that's not dramatic enough, I guess.

A few thoughts from the scriptures:

Wo unto them that call evil good, and good evil, that put darkness for light, and light for darkness, that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 2 Nephi 15:20.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; ... Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, ... Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves ... for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful ... Roman 1: 18-31

A lot of these labels can easily be placed on the so-called champions of the gay and lesbian community, as they spew out their hatred towards those of us who have the gall to speak up against that behavior. I respect their right to choose; I just wish they'd respect mine.

The media is portraying the gay lifestyle as something desirable and normal. On a recent episode of Ugly Betty, a 14-year-old boy who acts very gay, tells his mother and friends that he is not gay. The response is one of disappointment that he is not acknowledging his apparent sexuality. I've noticed ABC in particular goes out of their way to champion the gay lifestyle. Maybe other networks do as well--I just happen to watch ABC the most.
