AFA Survey regarding homesexuality friendly companies [24 Apr 2007|06:44pm]

ladygaia87
It's a one-question survey being done by the American Family Association.

They're expecting an overwhelming majority of respondents to say that they would be less likely to do business with a company if they knew it supported the "homosexual agenda" (good grief! There's an agenda now? I missed that memo!) So far, they're the results they're getting. Of course, they're only publicising it in places where they're likely to be agreed with...

So various people are posting the link all over the internet, in an effort to change the results. Filling out the survey-it really is only the one question-takes all of about ten seconds.

According to some comments on the original post by Jenni, you have to click on the link in the confirm thing for it to accept your vote, and join the newsletter. Its stupid, but..apparently they want to be scam artists. Lets catch them in their scam!

Brokeback Mountain - Vyle's Review
X-Posted to vyleishious
Well all i went to see Brokeback Mountain last night FINALLY and WOW! Heath Ledger was awsome. I was pleased by the movie. In fact it's on the "TO BUY" list. I personally don't see what all the hype was about. There was what 1 sex scene 1 love scene you can draw your own conclusions and a few kisses. I spose if your a man and you put your arm around a man it's a bad thing huh? And not once did i hear either of them say I Love You. I would rate it about a 7 on a scale from one to ten. And if Ebert don't give it 2 thumbs up...Well i guess we will have to. If you havn't already check it out. I do however have to add that it wasn't as good as Latter Days...Man i love Latter Days..*Giggles*

**URGENT!** SIGN THE PETITION TO STOP THE ANTI-GAY MARRIAGE PROTECTION AMENDEMENT! [11 Jan 2006|08:19pm]

xpresiveamiable
[ mood | angry ]

Pennsylvania's families are under attack by the right-wing Pennsylvania Family Institute. On Tuesday, January 24, 2006, they will introduce an amendment that would ban civil unions and threaten domestic partnership benefits, hospital visitation rights and much more for all unmarried couples.

Same-sex couples are already denied the right to marry under Pennsylvania's Defense of Marriage Act. This amendment is unnecessary and divisive.

Please sign the petition to protect Pennsylvania's families and ask your friends to do the same.http://www.libertypa.org/main.cfm?actionId=globalShowStaticContent&screenKey=userPetition&htmlID=4466&s=libertyPA

WTF??? [30 Dec 2005|11:19am]

On My Welcome Screen This Morning This Is What I Read..........

New for Conservative Christians: Film Reviews, Not Protests

Like other reviewers of "Brokeback Mountain," Steven Isaac was impressed by the quality of the filmmaking. But for Mr. Isaac, who reviews movies for the conservative Christian organization Focus on the Family, the movie, about a love affair between two male ranch hands, posed other critical challenges.

"The actions of (the film's cowboy lovers) cannot be endorsed" according to the 'Brokeback Mountain' review from the Office for Film and Broadcasting of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

"When Ang Lee brings his considerable talents to a film that promotes homosexuality, which I believe personally hurts our culture, you get a movie that sells its message more effectively than one by someone less talented," Mr. Isaac said in a telephone interview. In a review that acknowledged the film's virtues, published on the Focus on the Family Web site pluggedinonline.com, he objected that it portrayed the characters' tribulations as consequences of an intolerant society rather than of "the destructiveness of acting on homosexual temptations."

"Brokeback Mountain" has received overwhelming acclaim from mainstream critics, but elicited a different reaction from conservative Christian media: respectful and often laudatory, but finding biblical fault with the film's content.

As the Office for Film and Broadcasting of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops put it, "While the actions of Jack and Ennis" - the film's cowboy lovers - "cannot be endorsed, the universal themes of love and loss ring true." The office originally rated the movie "L," for limited, signaling that it was suitable for adults who can evaluate it from a Catholic moral perspective. But it changed the rating to "O," for offensive, so readers would not think the movie's treatment of homosexuality was "an acceptable Catholic moral position, which it is not," said Msgr. Francis Maniscalco, director of communications for the bishops' conference.

This critical ambivalence represents a change in the way conservative Christians engage popular culture, said Robert Johnston, a professor of theology and culture at Fuller Theological Seminary, an evangelical institution, in Pasadena, Calif. Until recently, he said, Christian groups would have ignored a sexually explicit movie like "Brokeback Mountain" except to protest it.

"Ten years ago, conservatives would say 'Schindler's List' should not be shown because of its nudity," said Professor Johnston, adding that he had not yet seen "Brokeback Mountain." "But just as in the wider culture, evangelicals as a group are becoming more sophisticated in their interaction with popular culture. There's been a recognition within the evangelical community that movies have become a primary means, perhaps the primary means, of telling our culture's stories. For this reason, evangelicals have become much more open to good stories, artfully told, but they also want stories whose values they can affirm or understand."

Reflecting this new approach, Christian media have increased their cultural coverage and influence lately.

The mainstream evangelical magazine Christianity Today last year started Christianitytodaymovies.com to coincide with the release of Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ." The site gets 125,000 visitors a month.

---------------------------------
What i wanna know is this since when do church officials get to critisize movies? And why should what they think be worth anything? It's obvious much like the little mermaid incident with the christians that okay if you don't like the movie that's fine. And then shove moral ethics down our throats. Because they think it's wrong..............It must be. FUCK THEM religious bastards who are closed minded.

I just wanted to be the first to wish everyone a Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate it. Being awake still at three in the morning, kinda puts you ahead of the game I guess. Well anyway, Merry Christmas, May your candy be sweet, and your presents returnable ;-), (just kidding)

Blessings Always,
