Skip to comments.Walter Cronkite's Push for Abortion and Homosexuality, 1965-2003

Famed CBS news anchor Walter Cronkite has been lauded in the media since his death on Friday, at the age of 92, with tributes paid not only from secular media, but even Vatican Radio and other Christian news sources.
But while remembered by many as "the most trusted man in America," many of Cronkite's more radical, but lesser known views, would be considered repugnant even to many of his greatest fans.
For instance, up until his death Cronkite served as honorary chair of the Interfaith Alliance, an organization dedicated to countering the influence of conservative Christianity on federal politics. In 2007, the Alliance initiated a campaign to force Christianity out of the public sphere by promoting policies that would silence the Christian voice. They recommended that churches be prohibited from endorsing political candidates, that research and health policies should not be based on "religious doctrine," and that faith-based schools should be banned, among other things.

Oh yes, Cronkite. That old lying commie who turned the devastating North Vietnamese/VC loss of the Tet Offensive into a victory and made the war go on for another 7 years. THAT Cronkite.
“...would be considered repugnant even to many of his greatest fans.”
Putting aside Cronkite’s traitorous anti-Americanism, and his support for perversion and baby murder, why would anyone be a “fan” of a newsreader in the first place?
People should be “fans” of their closest friends and family, not some pleasing, moderated grandfatherly voice on the television.
He’ll have some splainin to do at the Pearly Gates.
amen amen I just do not understand why people have this adoration and love-fest for celebrities! They see these people on TV and movies and think they know them but for the most part we never know who these people really are.
