Top gay rights leader: kids of religious families are ‘target demographic’ of anti-‘gay bullying’ ad

June 10, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - After the broadcast of a homosexualist advertisement during the family-friendly Fox show American Idol prompted outrage, the founder of the ad campaign has confirmed that such advertisements are intended to promote the message of the gay rights lobby to young children in households that normally wouldn’t support it. One conservative leader has now demanded that Google, Fox, and Disney-Pixar sever their ties with the campaign.
Peggy Nance of Concerned Women for America expressed outrage that the Fox network aired an anti-gay bullying advertisement, part of the “It Gets Better” campaign, during the extremely popular competition show.
Doubling as an advertisement for Google Chrome, the ad features several Hollywood personalities, and even a character from the popular Disney-Pixar movie series Toy Story, who speak directly to and encourage an audience of young people identifying as homosexual, telling them that “It gets better.”
On her blog, Nance called Fox’s choice of ad placement a betrayal of trust of conservative households everywhere.
“Apparently, American Idol with the help of Woody from Disneys Toy Story, thinks that my 4th grader needs to be fully aware of the plight of teens who view themselves as ‘gay.’ I am sorry, but he doesnt even know about heterosexual sex yet. Can you give me some room here?” wrote Nance. “I am ticked because I feel tricked. Fox blew it last night.
“The point is parents felt secure in allowing our entire families watch this show. They lured us into a false sense of security and broke trust with us last night.”
Dan Savage, a homosexual activist and founder of the It Gets Better project, shot back at Nance, saying that promoting their message to those with religious upbringing was precisely the point.
“Nance’s son was always our target demo,” wrote Savage. “Again, we don’t know if he’s gay. But he might be and, if he is, he needs to hear from us.”
The “primary goal” of the campaign, he explained, is “to reach LGBT kids who are being bullied by their peers and their families.”
“Now I dont know if Nances son is gay, bi, or trans, but if he is, he needs to know more than most that it can get better for him too, that theres hope for his future, and that the adult world isnt entirely populated by hateful s***s like his mother,” he wrote, adding “here’s hoping” that “Nance’s son is gay.”
Nance later wrote to supporters that Savage’s response revealed “a serious threat to every family.”
“This campaign isn’t really about stopping gay bullying in school,” wrote Nance, who also demanded that Google, Fox and Disney sever ties with Savage’s campaign. “This is about using the power of prime time television and Google to infiltrate your home and your family and get their message to our sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters.”

If this perv likes kids so much maybe he should get a job with the TSA...So he can target them all day long while hinding behind the rule of law.
I am so old that I can remember when the “alternative life-style community” had a slogan of “All we want is to be left alone!”
Then it became “In your face” and now it appears to be “Proselytize to the Max!”
At some point normal people will say “enough”. I was furious when I saw that commercial. My kids are adults and heterosexual, but why should parents have to have conversations with their little children about this crap? For such a small fraction of the population, homosexuals sure have a lot of power.
thinks that my 4th grader needs to be fully aware of the plight of teens who view themselves as gay.
it’s already in the official curriculum of many public schools, for children even younger than that.
Recruitment is paramount. Your children must be assimilated.

What the hell is your 4th grader doing watching American Idol?
“One conservative leader has now demanded that Google, Fox, and Disney-Pixar sever their ties with the campaign.”
Conservatives should sever their ties with tv. If you give money to Comcast, Dish, or whoever, you are not only supporting this but the Logo channel, MSNBC, and a host of other channels that would not be in business otherwise.
Does that sum it up for the great liberal unwashed?
Psst! Arabs kill queers, don’t they, psst psst psst.

Somebody needs to get a new rope for perverts seeking children. There is no end to what these disgusting mental cases will be allowed to do. I think of Roman times when male homos were allowed to buy, sell, and trade young boys. They even had a name for the young boys owned by the same type of perverts we see today—catamites. Read your history and see that the modern world is following this same road. White trash at its worst.
Get RID of TV. I did. And I DON'T miss it!
The 2 percenters need their molesters prosecuted.
They don’t need their assault excused or normalized.
It’s no wonder that people think homos are 25% or so of the population when they’re really 1-2%.
It’s just a constant barrage these days.
They realized that the power of the state is the best way to condition people to accept them and punish them when they don’t.
Of interest to homeschoolers.
Back in the day they stayed in the closet rather than get the devil beat out of them at school.
Oh how I long for the days when bumpers were chrome and TV was in black & white.
