The onslaught of companies and their commercials celebrating and advancing the “gay” lifestyle seems to be increasing at an exponential rate.
Several years ago I began to notice a drastic change on the Food Network and HGTV. Chefs were competing for their same sex “spouse,” same sex couples were looking for houses.
I finally made the decision to stop watching my favorite FN Show, “Chopped” after a particularly offensive episode and wrote the network last year:
Dear Food Network,
I realize I am just one person, so this may be an exercise in futility. You have been one of my favorite channels, and Chopped has been my favorite show on the Food Network.
But the last 2 episodes I found so offensive, I deleted them from my DVR after just the first few minutes and have deleted Chopped from my series recording.
I realize many channels, in an effort to advance the “Cable Positive” vision, are implementing gay characters and a pro-gay message. I love ALL people, but I believe in a biblical worldview. I don’t enjoy seeing same sex folks kissing and chefs in drag.
It has nothing to do with hate; it has everything to do with my faith and values.
Let me be clear: I believe EVERYONE has sinned and fallen short of God’s glory and standards. That includes me and and my friends…should they choose a heterosexual or homosexual lifestyle.
I am a writer, editor, and talk show host, and am doing all I can to uphold solid, biblical values: to love God and people and be an instrument of His grace.
Unfortunately, I won’t be watching your channel in the future, and I will tell friends and followers why. Again, I bear no ill-will nor hatred for anyone.
But some things are worth standing up for, and to the best of my ability, I choose to do what pleases God.
Although I don’t expect one email from one person to sway your determination to impose your agenda, perhaps it’s a start. My listening audience is a paltry 100- 200K…not large. But they will know and be informed.
I am so sad that I cannot simply watch a wonderful show, with talented chefs, many of whom cook for causes.
By the way, my favorite Chopped episode of all time was the show where Lance, the Evangelical Christian, won the redemption re-match and then gave money to the runner-up to see her dying grandmother in France.
That was so moving — I watched it several times and had friends watch.
Unfortunately, the Food Network has chosen a different, stringently pro-gay agenda to showcase…and lost a formerly faithful viewer.
With great sadness,
That was February 2014 and I had just learned about “Cable Positive” TV, a network of broadcasting affiliates working to advance a “positive” image of homosexuals and the homosexual lifestyle.
Now, a little over a year later and the real occupy movement is the radical homosexual activists, representing a segment who comprise a very small 4.6% of America’s population.
How is it that less than 5% of the U.S. population is able to completely saturate our media and education?
