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.
My thoughts exactly!
We don’t watch much television in our house...it’s almost never on during the day (except to watch baseball). I was channel surfing to find a game the other night, and what I clicked through was...shocking. I have not lived in the backwoods all my life — I know what’s out there — but what is on television is just astounding. The problem is that people watch that junk and think it’s normal, and they emulate it.
I’m scared to death for my kids. They know homosexuality is a deviation from healthy, normal sexuality. They know it’s a sin. They also know they will be labeled as hateful, backwards, etc. Knowing it and experiencing it will be two different things, though.
I'm sorry, but no, they won't. Not if they haven't said "enough" by now and as long as "normal" people keep consuming the media bilge, like American Idol, that is pump into "normal" homes.
You are cheating your kids out of a million wonderful things. There's brilliant, educational, fun things on everywhere, all the time.
I’m in the same situation as you. Except for NCAA men’s basketball in the winter and old movies, TV for me now is mostly just noise of dubious morality. Too bad the system isn’t such where you get a total pay-per-view and only pay for the particular shows you want, like ball games, and not have to take the sewage.
“All we want is to be left alone!” Has always been a lie.
Every lone, lonesome, unhappy, downcast child has been a target for the homesexual activist - which is probably most.
All over a minuscule segment of the population. But the ubiquitous PC “gay” agenda serves to give kids a bad case of homosexuality on the brain. That incessant PC propaganda, not Christian morality, is the source of the conflict and bullying.
How many conservatives even watch American Idol any more?
Never watched it, never will. Hours of sleep I lose over this fact: 0.
exactly! this season of AI featured disgusting performances by Lady Gaga... this is no longer a family show... i watched it the first 3 seasons--and it was pretty tame back then, if i remember correctly...
...and a Muslim in England, posted a bunch of “gay free zone” posters in a Muslim area of the city.
...Gays objected. so he was arrested. and eventually punished, with...
a 100 lb fine. ($150?)
Gays are learning, that for the left, Islam trumps even gay rights, and women’s rights.
why? i don’t know...
it’s a mystery.
this is so silly... our kids read wonderful, classical literature, know Latin, are learning Greek... they study art, music, science and public speaking... are excellent swimmers and top-notch baseball players... both study piano, and our older son is teaching himself guitar... in fact he just picked up an electric guitar... they camp, build, plant, even cook... they are learning how to handle firearms, and they also feed the homeless.. they are witty, sharp and are at ease around all people... our yougest even has a talent agent... and they are only 10 and 15 years--with so much more ahead of them... all of this without television... and i would say, "all of this because they don't watch television."
There are things out there, sure, but to say they’re being “cheated”? Come on...
It is Recruiting. It is how they reproduce.
This is such an obvious choice I’m surprised more don’t make it. Thank you for helping pass civilization onto the next generation.
Thanks. We see our kids as our legacy and try to raise them accordingly.
Netflix is a great solution...lots of shows from the 80’s available, so I don’t have to worry about censoring today’s ‘family’ entertainment.
And commercial-free as a bonus. This past Christmas one of the guys in our office related a story about asking his twin daughters what they wanted for Christmas. Their reply: “We don’t know, nobody’s told us”. Ha! Paid for the annual subscription right there.
You expected better from television?
Wake up. Smell the coffee. Get rid of the TV.
Life is like a garden. Get rid of TV and the weeds it brings and you have tons of room to put in better things. Not saying that there isn’t good stuff on TV, it’s just that the time and effort to screen, select and unavoidably counter the rubbish outweighs all of the “wonderful things” that are there. Another great advantage is that you stop the messages of a declining culture dead in their tracks since the tube is the #1 source of enculturation and publik skoolz are #2.
Fertile soil, good seed and the rest is up to the parents.
What he doesn’t understand is that kids of religious families are those most likely to not be influenced by these kinds of ads. Generally, they’re more firmly grounded in their beliefs, and unlikely to be drawn to things they know are wrong.
Gay groups targeting these kids are wasting a lot of money! (But don’t tell them; let that be our little secret.)
Indeed - cut off the media. Don’t let Satan’s messengers into your home.
Really, we don’t miss it, folks.
There’s plenty to do besides sit and be entertained.
It’s a specific agenda promoting modus operandi that they call “jamming”. Making it appear that they are more prominent and ubiquitous than in reality.
Do you swim through sewers to get a drink of clean water?
I may have watched an episode about 9 years ago. It was
not bad at all; I remember thinking the programming was
suitable for really all ages. There were 2 teenage girl
singers, and 2 adult men dancers in that show. From what
I see on this thread, if this was American Idol. it has
gone way downhill.
wow, simply wow. “Nobody’s told us” Any idea how old these
girls were? It would make superlative dialogue... for
Not too long ago I read online a good discussion about
how TV degrades us, not by formal indoctrination but by
simply showing us what they want us to think the world looks
like. It was much better put than what I have been able
Whenever someone says that TV/media doesn’t try to influence behavior,
I ask them “why do people advertise, then?”
Just proves it’s a choice, no genetic predisposition about it.
