When two men kiss, is it ideologically offensive? News Limited columnist Paul Gray thinks so:
My young family were among the viewers. At Christmas, they all sat down to watch the Spicks and Specks yuletide special, A Very Specky Christmas. Despite my often caustic anti-ABC comments, I was impressed that the ABC could create a show attracting a genuine family audience.
Then when Spicks and Specks host Adam Hills worked in a gag involving a gay kiss — he walked across the set and gave Brokeback Mountain style mouth-to-mouth to fellow program regular Hamish Blake — I looked around the living room at the embarrassed looks on my children’s faces and said: "You bloody idiot."
I wasn’t referring to the kids, of course, or to Hills. I was angry with myself for believing, even for a few minutes, that the ABC could broadcast a straightforward lifestyle program without inserting some form of ideological offensiveness into it.
According to Paul Strand at the Christian Broadcasting Network, Hollywood and America’s television networks are involved in a "well-planned propaganda campaign" to promote the homosexual agenda. As far back as 1988 gay propagandists like Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen "proposed using tactics on ‘straight’ America that are remarkably similar to the brainwashing methods of Mao Tse-Tung’s Communist Chinese…" Perhaps the US Congress should set up a House Committee on Un-heterosexual Activities to investigate.
