I am extremely thankful that over 7 years ago Jesus set me Free from the sin of homosexuality (YouTube video). However, because I choose to live Free and not a slave to homosexuality I am called all kinds of names when all I am doing is letting folks know that they can choose freedom and go to heaven. God gives us a choice to either live for Him or reject Him as our Savior. If you need to be gay, that is your God given right to sin and go to hell. As a man of God (xgaygreg) I pray that you will choose life - JESUS CHRIST!!

It's probably the same poster posting under different names and he/they are totally off topic.

OK, so here's an on topic comment: Hope the networks see the light on how people are not entertained by gays.

Whether acting on the screen or behind the screen doing the writing, directing, producing, etc - we are not going anywhere. This article just panders to shallow sensationalism. We are here, we are queer, stay tuned.

Good on you that you feel the need for your god. Me, I don't - never have. If that means in your mythology that I'm going to some kind of hell, then you can believe that if you want - it is a free country. But just remember how it felt to suck those dicks or ride the pony! It's wonderful!!!

We see the last gasps of mainstream media as they attempt to draw in the last few people to come into the future. You are already dead, mainstream media, and this is just your desperation plea, to drain the last bit of blood from the gullible masses. Education and intelligence is not only the death of religion, it is the death of television as we know it, rest in peace to both.

Sweetie, whether they realize it or not, "people" have always been entertained by us gay folk. It makes you easier to live with.

On the actual subject at hand. Saw a preview of "The New Normal", didn't find myself interested in seeing it again, only saw "Smash" in a couple of ads that didn't really pique any interest and the other two, never even heard of. Their getting the axe isn't saying anything about television programs with lesbian and gay characters, just that you have to make programs that people want to watch, quality or not.

If you get Chiller, they're running a marathon of one of the best programs that hardly anyone watched when it was on, "Pushing Daisies".

Your perpetual presence in gay forums indicates quite the opposite, SniKKKers. You're nothing if not consistently simple.

It kind of makes obvious that the first post was a call for attention, doesn't it? The only question is whether the poster[s] are straight pretending to be ex-gay, or temporarily ex-gay hoping for validation of the choice that they know is doomed.

Oh, another "ex"-gay martyr. Spare us, nancy. If you were a slave, it's because you're a doormat. My orientation has snever un me; I run it.

I don't suppose you've ever heard of bisexuality? Denial?

I don't know what the big surprise is.. All that" data" and "surveys" and "polls" are just spun up crap by the media.. Truth is, that lifestyle is just a minuscule percentage of the population.. And not admired! I don't care what those people do behind closed doors.. Just don't want it thrown in my face all the time!!
