The word "scapegoat" has come to mean a person who is blamed and punished for the sins of others, generally as a way of distracting attention from the real causes.

Looks like the old addage is true: people who refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. We kicked your Nazi asses in WWII and we'll do it again if necessary.

if you seriously believe that then I'e got .5 cents an acre of swamp land to sell you. NO where do you see the GLBT community asserting there view on anyone. Asking for equal rights and fighting for equal rights is the only thing I've seen. As tax paing americans fighting for the right of Equality. Religion and a 6'2 fictitious god who lives on the planet KOLOB telling you what you what you can and can not watch thats an AGENDA...go drink the Kool aid

I am not a religious individual however I do believe that homosexuality is not a natural way for us humans to exist! I find the mechanics nasty and repulsive.

Amen!

so Mormons know what's best for me. Why do religious organizations have any control over matters of my personal life. If I want to watch the show I will,

The situation sounds like polygamy to me except with two men and one woman.

I thought you said you weren't a religious person then why end your statement with AMEN? and what makes you critique on being gay.

All I can say is *Gasp!*

And wonder about censorship. But, many southern tv stations wouldn't initially run Oprah either, because she was black.

Yeah, deciding in behalf of all the viewers in your area that this is "inappropriate" is not simply reaching -- it's easy to call it FACTUALLY incorrect, since it is factually impossible that 100.0% of the viewers in the area would agree.

This is how "those people" operate, quite bluntly: There is a never-ending series of attempts to *decide for EVERYONE* and even to *FORCE* everyone to live by a certain standard.

Not for nothing are those opposed to this "ideology" (by now) viciously opposed, and extremely vocal about their refusal to "go along with the program" (pun intended). The ultraconservatives can expect to see an endless litany of very, very strongly worded refusals, and rightly so.

You do not tell others how to live.

The end.

What's interesting to me about this post is that it is so "inside" the viewpoint that *I* cannot make sense of it. It makes way too many assumptions and leaps to propose them as "fact." It presupposes that this and that have been the "goal" of the people whom the poster opposes.

Laughably (to the point that the post is absolute nonsense, utterly and unarguably by *any* standard that is sane), the poster attempts to draw that age-old line between "straight and gay" and to propose that *EVERY* straight person is moral and upright and that *NO* gay person is.

Way to blow your cover and sound not entirely sane.

Thanks for playing.

This is one of the more amazing posts I have seen in a long time, and I smiled widely. If I am reading it correctly, it purposely presupposes that the "opposition" is part of a group whose nastiness and evil are unquestioned -- not even taking a moment's breath to suppose anything *but*; and then opposes the previous poster *in that context* while ripping them a new one. THANK YOU for this awesome post.

Bingo. Here's the winner.

That violates their philosophy, you see. They must *literally goddamn F-O-R-C-E* everyone not to have a chance to watch. They *M-U-S-T* decree that *EVERYONE ALIVE* has to live as they do.

They do not champion individual choice. They champion forcing their views -- like Nazis -- upon the rest of the populace.
