The AFA & Focus on the Family

There is a group that calls them selfs The American Family Association, but what in the hell do they really know about family’s unless they fit in to there narrow minded views on issues. Well the AFA and the dumb dumbs over at "Focus on the Family" need to grow the up and get with the times. This is the year 2006, not 1906 and I think you guys should act like it. In the year 2006 we have this thing called "diversity", yep, "diversity". I hate to go all nerd on you, but "Diversity" is defined as "The quality of being made of many different elements, forms, kinds, or individuals".

Diversity means that we live in a world where we not only accept different, but celebrate out differences. Also this means that we live in a world with homosexuals. Since we are on the subject, there is no such thing as the "Homosexual Agenda". Well, I take it back; the only thing WE want is to get all the same rights as everyone else. So I guess you could call that the "Homosexual Agenda". I know Homosexuality is a really big hot button item, believe me, I know. But I also think if people had any ideas who around them in there family’s is gay, they would be surprised and not have a clue! Everyone has someone in there family who is gay, if they know it or not. And I mean everyone!

Also, in my book, abortion is a choice a woman should have. What is so wrong with giving someone the choice to make a decision that does in fact affect them? Why is this so hard for you guys at the AFA and the Focus on the Family to see? Why is it so hard to let people make there own decision? That is something that I just do not understand, and I guess I never will.

My last item of rage or rant is Entertainment! Why is it that whenever there is a TV show, or movie that has god or someone talking to god, or any sort of religion in it related to humor, people get pissed off. I for one would like to think that my god (and your god for that matter) has a very big sense of humor. I mean just look at this planet we live on, or humans for that matter. I mean God has to have a sense of humor.

I think Gregory Lee who is a bivocational pastor for two United Methodist churches in south Georgia said it best when he sat down and watched "The Book Of Daniel", and had this to say in his blog on the homosexual topic in "The Book Of Daniel" as related to religion and church in today’s world, and the AFA's boycott of the tv show "1. Acceptance of Homosexuality. As most of us know, the Episcopal Church is very liberal, in cultural issues and in theology, and accept homosexuality as normal behavior in both parishioners and in clergy (as evidenced by the recent affirmation of a professing homosexual as Bishop). This is objectionable to me, but that is not something that NBC put in the show. Whether we like it or not, this is part of the Christian community in America. This is real life as lived out by our brothers and sisters in Christ in the Episcopal Church and in other denominations throughout the country. This is something that most of the major mainline denominations in the U.S. have had to deal with or are in the midst of dealing with at this time. Boycotting it and sweeping it under the rug does not take away the problem in the church." (Link to full blog entry here)

Anyway, the AFA and Focus on the Family must have no sense of humor cus they seem to think every show is out to diss God, when I think most shows are just trying to show life, with maybe just a little more drama. Joan of Arcadia was a really great show in which Joan talks to God who appears as normal everyday people from the street. I do not remember if the AFA or if Focus on the Family had a problem with them, but I would think they would. Those are the only shows, but as Gregory Lee, who I talked about above, said that the show showed "Jesus in a positive light", and "when was the last time you saw a television show portray Jesus in a positive light?" Which I think minus a few shows is a very true statement.

Anyway, I think I have said enough for now...
