Tell FOX News NOT to Go Liberal on Homosexuality - AFTAH in the News

Dear Readers,

One of the reasons we are in such big trouble regarding the promotion of homosexuality in our culture is that "conservatives" have stopped acting conservatively on this particular (sin) issue.  A good example is frequent FOX News guest Margaret Hoover.  She espouses legalized homosexual "marriage" as a Republican Party and "conservative" issue -- despite the longstanding GOP plank against counterfeit "same-sex marriage" and other aspects of the larger homosexual agenda.  Please read below as Hoover makes the same fraudulent connection between homosexuality and race that drives Blacks nuts when it's trotted out by "gay' activists and liberals: 

We Republicans have often found ourselves on the wrong side of civil rights struggles since the 1960s, but there was a reason that Martin Luther King, Jr.'s father is said to have supported Republicans.

Republicans were historically the party ever-expanding freedom to disenfranchised minorities, from newly liberated slaves to giving women the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony was a Republican. By supporting the [pro-homosexuality American Foundation for Equal Rights trial against California's Proposition 8 upholding traditional marriage as between a man and a woman] we have an opportunity to establish our historic credibility on civil rights issues once again. But we should support marriage equality because it is the right thing to do.

Gays and lesbians are our friends, neighbors, doctors, colleagues, sisters and brothers. Does it sit well with you that because of their sexual orientation, a factor outside one’s control, that they should have less rights and protections in the eyes of the law?...


...That's why the Supreme Court, in 1967 Loving v. Virginia, legalized interracial marriage –six years after our current president was born to an interracial couple. At that time 73% of the population opposed “miscegenation.” How long would it have taken to change popular opinion, for the minority to democratically win their constitutional rights? As Martin Luther King, Jr. famously asserted, “Justice delayed is justice denied.”
 

Note that the above excerpt is taken from Hoover's column, "Why I'm Joining the Fight for Marriage Equality."  on the Fox News website.  Yes, folks, something is rotten in the state of Denmark -- and what's rotten is that morally-challenged libertarian Republicans are pushing Danish values on the Grand Old Party.  (Actually, Hoover -- a "Cultural Warrior" on Bill O'Reilly's "The O'Reilly Factor" (oreilly@foxnews.com) is to the left of Denmark, which was the first country to recognize homosexual "Civil Unions" but still has not legalized sex marriage.")  Please help me to ask FOX News to treat the issue of homosexuality and the aggressive, anti-Christian, anti-religious-freedom "Gay" Agenda more seriously than they do now.  Ask that FOX NOT marginalize conservatives, Christians and morality advocates who stand on principle against the pro-homosexuality agenda.

AFTAH in the news: the following is reprinted from the excellent pro-family website "LifeSiteNews":

News Corp., parent company of Fox News, to publish mag promoting gay ‘marriage’

 

NEW YORK, NY, September 6, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Fox News’ parent company, the conservative-leaning, Rupert Mordoch-owned News Corporation, is preparing to publish a magazine devoted to homosexual “marriage” in the wake of its legalization in New York.

 

The September 29 debut of “WEDDING Pride” by News Corp.’s Community Newspaper Group has drawn fire from both homosexual supporters, who have slammed the move as a transparent case of financial opportunism, as well as conservatives concerned about what the move says about the future of News Corp and Fox.

“It has come to my attention that News Corp, parent company to virulently homophobic Fox News and NY Post doesn’t apparently hate the gays enough to not make a buck off them, if the opportunity presents itself,” quipped one writer on the liberal Daily Kos blog.

Peter LaBarbera of Americas for Truth about Homosexuality said, however, that “Conservative and faith-based Americans do not look to Fox to promote sin.”

“And yet, every time Fox promotes homosexuality, that’s exactly what they’re doing; they’re promoting bad morality.”

“I think the problem is Fox News is based in New York City, which is a gay Mecca,” he said, noting that while other news networks devoted considerable time to reporting on a New York Senate vote to legalize homosexual “marriage,” the cable news channel devoted zero segments to the vote or to the governor signing the measure into law.

WEDDING Pride is to be a high-end, glossy publication and is to have an initial distribution of 35,000 in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Ad prices in the magazine are to range from $850 for a quarter page to $3,120 for a back cover.

Concerns about the direction Fox News was taking in regard to homosexual issues were also raised in 2006 when the news agency was listed as a “Feature Level” sponsor of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA) annual convention after donating $10,000 to the event.

LaBarbera expressed to LifeSiteNews his fear that Fox News may “go neutral” on social issues.

“People expect Fox to avoid the typical liberal media bias on issues like homosexuality,” he said. “Already, Fox supports the NLGJA, and frequent Fox Bill O’Reilly guest Margaret Hoover is a strong advocate for homosexual ‘marriage.’”

LaBarbera said that there is reluctance on the part of most Fox News programs to treat the homosexual agenda as a serious threat to religious freedom.

““We certainly hope that News Corporation’s support of homosexual ‘marriage’ does not presage a tilt by Fox News in that direction,” he said.
