Christian Broadcaster Warns Parents That 'Glee' Feeds Kids a 'Steady Diet' of Homosexuality: VIDEO


The prime time TV fall season is on the horizon and the Christian Broadcasting Network is on alert:

Says Matt Philvin of the "Culture and Media Institute" of gay and lesbian depictions on TV:

"The people in Hollywood. This is their worldview. They don't really know anybody who doesn't have lesbians in their family who are raising young children. The rest of us, not so much. I think we're just desensitized now, and they're giving us what they see as the normal world."

  2. Well, he's right to an extent, Glee does have a steady diet of gay, and that's a great thing.

  3. Better than what most parents are feeding their kids - a steady diet of chicken Mcnuggets and soda. At least the gay is fat free.

  4. The FDA recommends at least 4 daily servings of homosexuality, although it warns that sources like "Glee" may be high in sugary sweetness. Experts suggest, instead, getting your daily gay from literature, art films, and Dave Franco comedy sketches.

  5. When will these people learn that not everyone is (or aspires to be) white, straight, privileged, and Christian? And that "normal" is in the eye of the beholder?

  6. And we get a steady diet of self-loathing, closeted homophobic homosexuals!

    Right back at cha!

  7. Here is a novel idea Mr Philvin: Rather than try to dictate or censor what EVERYONE sees, how about you just stop watching the TV shows you find objectionable? Further, you can instruct your followers to also stop watching objectionable TV shows. Rather than try to change everybody else, just change yourself. See? Problem solved.

  8. They are right. Because their bigotry makes these religious fanatics unapproachable, their gay relatives (I seriously doubt they have gay friends) would avoid coming out to them. So they live their lives in blissful ignorance of the real world. Typically, I avoid intolerant people whenever I can, too.

  9. Glee is boring and very clean show. I wouldn't call it a bedroom story.
    Is this MP really an expert?

  10. ever wonder why homosexuality is such an issue with the religious when there are a gazillion people alive on this planet?? Looks to me like there is plenty of heterosexual coupling going on.

  11. I was going to care about this story until I saw the CBN logo. Seriously, does anyone really listen to them? And the people who do are probably way too far gone to accept anything else as reality.

  12. Is that why he bought all the DVDs?

  13. It's not that no one cares about what CBN has to say, it's that no one under 75 cares what CBN has to say. They would be broke if it wasn't for their decades act of scaring seniors into sending a portion of their Social Security check to them to stop the "radical homosexual agenda" (always pairing a gay rights story with a report on molested children for an extra dose of scare tactic). Basically, Pat Robertson is a welfare queen. Without those SS checks he's be a pauper.

  14. Hate to break it to you, dude, but it pretty much IS the normal world. Almost everyone has a family member who is either gay or bi.

    Or, in other words:
    We're Everywhere, We're Everywhere!

  15. The reason why they "don't" have gay people in their families is because the gay people in their families are IN THE CLOSET. Dumbass!

  16. 'Glee' is feeding kids a 'steady diet'
    of homosexuality? Here's another piece of breaking news: The kids don't seem to mind it that much, or they would have stopped watching (you don't want to eat what you don't like).

    And besides, what exactly does he want the parents to do about it? Get the show off their subscription? The kids will go watch it at their friends'. In fact, they'll hunt it down even more just because their parents forbade it.

    You want to warn parents about something? How about warning them that KFC is feeding their kids a 'steady (and highly addictive) diet' of artery-clogging fat. Funny how no-one seems to have a problem with THAT. It might have something to do with the fact that there's profit at stake, and in this country profit is just another name for God.

  17. I swear -- so many of today's articles seem to be coming from an alternate dimension. How determined do you have to be in order to avoid the real world like these people do? And the real world is so much more fun!

  18. It makes me very happy to see the Christian Right squirm like this. They know their bigoted views are on the wane and within a few years, guys like Matt Philbin (above) will be gone and such opinions and attitudes not tolerated. Keep it up America. We are winning each and every day!

  19. The Christian Broadcasting Network sure does have a Sexy Anchor Woman for a network railing against sex on TV! haha what a joke!

    Posted by: ChrisMe | Aug 25, 2011 1:58:43 PM

  20. The Christian Broadcasting Network is the network that has a steady stream of gay. They talk about it every day, they rail about it, gnash their teeth about it, cry about it, it's gay, gay, gay all day, all the time.

    We're the guy in the motorcycle jacket with the cigarette tucked behind our ear that your mother warned you about on the Christian Broadcast Network.

    Thank you for making gay so appealing and popular with your viewers, because as we all know, everyone loves the bad boy.

    Especially when the good boys look like the men who appear on this network: bloated, wrinkled, usually white, balding and pasty with voices that usually pitched in the soprano range.

    CBN, the network with the MOST gay coverage of any network on the air.

  21. why do they keep trotting out the most mockable folks? seriously, this is the best you can do?

  22. He said "the romp is really in the bedroom".
    So, I guess I've been missing that part of the show every week because I haven't seen any "romping" at all. In fact, a kiss is as much as I've ever seen...although I have missed a few episodes...mea culpa!
    These are folks preaching to the choir and if "Pastor so & so" says it happened...well, hell...it sure must have happened. Braindead and probably loveless, sexless excuses for human beings.

  23. Maybe the media is just sensitizing kids to bigotry and that it is a bad thing and what their parents spout at home and what they are taught by their religious leaders is nothing more than sanctioned hate towards fellow human beings.

  24. Did he end by saying that if he can repress himself every other gay person should be able to as well? Because my gay-dar is beeping.

  25. There are many reasons to skip Glee, but the gay diet isn't one of them. There are more reasons to skip all of CBN.
