KETK-NBC news anchors ask: “Will the acceptance of homosexuality in this society be the downfall of America?”
"So?" you ask. "What's the problem? They're taking a survey, getting the audience input. Happens all the time in this land of free speech. So?"
I discovered this info on a site demanding that NBC drop this local Texas TV affiliate because this is intolerable, apparently. The site asserted the following:
Oh, no, it didn't end there. The station then proceeded to have the gall to actually allow callers to answer this question! How dare they? Didn't they know that some people might actually believe that cultural embracing of homosexuality as a legitimate and healthy lifestyle will be the downfall of America? What about that? Some people may voice this opinion and that is NOT ACCEPTABLE!!
Yes, that was a question actually posed to viewers by a Texas-based NBC affiliate TV station, both on the air and online. But it didn’t end there.
It's clearly acceptable to voice the opposite opinion. But agreement in this case is anathema! Agreement is automatically touted as violent hate speech. There is no acknowledgment of the possibility to love and still oppose. We have forgotten that the best parents say "no" out of deep love and faithfulness to their children. We equate love with allowance. Love is NOT the same as allowance. NOT.
I think it is going to require much boldness in the very near future to speak definitively regarding a Biblical position on this issue: much boldness, much faith and confidence, and a clear mind.
I'm thinking we need to carefully teach our children. What about you?
