While unelected U.S. Supreme Court Justices debated the issue of same-sex marriage in America on Tuesday, NBC’s Today featured a panel promoting gay marriage. Co-host Matt Lauer parroted a controversial ABC/Washington Post poll that supposedly shows a majority of Americans now support same-sex marriage. Carson Daly (The Voice) chimed in, saying “There is a new normal out there. We gotta move on.”
NBC’s Nancy Snyderman even went so far as to say same-sex marriage will be accepted by all people “once it’s institutionalized” and even compared gay marriage activists to the civil rights movement! (Juan Williams did the same thing Tuesday night on Fox News while debating ACLJ’s Jay Sekulow.) Attorney Star Jones also chimed in and compared gay marriage to interracial marriage.
On National Public Radio’s (NPR) Morning Edition, Carrie Johnson had four liberal and/or homosexual activists as guests and not one conservative or Christian view represented. NPR gladly receives our tax dollars and has a history of left-wing and anti-Christian bias, especially when it comes to the same-sex “marriage” issue. It should be called National Progressive Radio.
But this isn’t new, and NBC is not alone. The point is that today’s entertainers in the mainstream media, formerly known as “journalists,” used to care at least a little about what the people thought.
On ABC’s Good Morning America, Terry Moran reported from outside the Supreme Court: “this issue is changing in the American mind so fast…” The show featured four voices in support of the high court affirming gay marriage and just one against. ABC’s Josh Elliot spoke at a Gay and Lesbian Alliance Defamation (GLAAD) dinner and declared “I’m proud to work at a place that believes in advocacy journalism!”
It has been proven that the media are generally opposed to the Bible and generally favor laws to redefine marriage. Three out of four ‘journalists’ believe that homosexuality is acceptable and no different a lifestyle than heterosexuality.
The same media that resisted George W. Bush’s stances on social issues has gladly kept in step with the Obama White House’s marching orders to bring about progressive social change to America. Shortly after being elected president, Barack Obama gave a speech to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) advocacy group and political lobbying organization in the United States. He told the audience they will “see a time in which we as a nation finally recognize relationships between two men or two women as just as real and admirable as relationships between a man and a woman.”
When it came time to make a 2012 campaign statement, non-practicing Catholic Joe Biden happily endorsed same-sex marriage and homosexuality. The party of abortion, big government, and irresponsible spending openly added same-sex marriage to its platform, and the mainstream media has gleefully followed suit.
Not many of us can forget the vitriol of those who oppose traditional marriage and Christian values when Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy was attacked for his beliefs and free speech. Cathy simply said marriage should be between one man and one woman and that he chooses to operate his company with Christian values. Network news and the cable shows provided a platform for homosexual activists, Hollywood liberals, and plenty of progressive Democrats to rail against Dan Cathy and others who supported biblical values.
