Get ready, the gay agenda is about to launch a new front. This is a battle that must be won if we are to prevent our homes from being assaulted even more than they are now.
According to a New York Times article earlier this week, two major cable providers -- Comcast and Cox Communications -- will offer the homosexual network titled "here!" through their video on-demand offerings. Billing itself as "America's first gay television network," here! was established in 2002 by Regent Entertainment and boasts current availability in more than 40 million households.
The same Times report noted that Viacom -- which owns such well-known media outlets as CBS, MTV, Nickelodeon, Nick at Nite, and Paramount Pictures -- will have its own advertiser-supported network targeting "lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) viewers." That network, which will be known as "LOGO" and will be launched by MTV Networks, promises "authentic, smart, inclusive and open-minded" programming that will appeal to the homosexual community -- a group that, according to MarketResearch.com, has a projected buying power of almost $500 billion. That fact is not lost on Viacom.
Ed Vitagliano, a researcher for the American Family Association, says he is hopeful concerned parents will make themselves aware of the prospect of homosexual-oriented programming coming into their homes. He says even though LOGO is claiming there will be no pornographic programming, parents are still due for a shock.
"It's going to come as a shock when their children are scanning or flipping channels on the way to Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon or the Disney Channel and run across LOGO," the researcher says. He anticipates children happening across programming that "will probably [depict] two men kissing -- or at least having the kind of sexual content that you can get on the regular networks, like NBC or CBS, except that it will be of the homosexual variety."
LOGO is scheduled to launch on June 30, 2005, in several major American markets, including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia and Atlanta. Cox Communications and Comcast were slated to begin airing here! content this month.
