The Bible's Mini-Series On The History Channel Bows To The Gay Agenda...

Perhaps, it is because I am getting older or perhaps, it is the fact that the History Channel provides more decent and ‘family friendly’ programming than the fluff on most of the other stations... is the reason why I am a regular viewer of the History Channel, which is currently in the process of depicting a mini-series based on the Bible; but even in the age of chronic cynicism and the dominance of Secularism, the History Channel’s audience so far for the Biblical stories has been reverently and surprisingly huge. However, it is the wont now that more and more every aspect of life in America and beyond… and even the sacred stories in the Good Book are being subjected to the tyranny of Political Correctness.

Those of us who have read and continue to read our Bible know that were I to mention the Biblical Judge, Sampson, our collective minds would think of his wife Delilah, his long hair, and his strength; and were I to speak of the Exodus of the Jews from Egyptian slavery, the plagues and the advent of Moses’ parting of the Red Sea would be foremost in our minds. Yet, strangely enough, the Sodom and Gomorrah tale, as was depicted in the first episode of the History Channel’s Bible mini-series, conspicuously left out the homosexual acts of Sodom/Gomorrah’s citizens behavior that were among the main catalysts for God’s judgment and their subsequent destruction. The History Channel was faithful and adhered to other aspects of the Biblical story because we did see the angels of God guiding Lot to safety and Lot’s wife turning into a pillar of salt for not heeding the angels’ warnings… not to look back at what must have been the fair cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, but alas… no mention of the acts that caused their destruction.

Such now is the power of the gays to influence virtually all aspects of life in America. As recently as two weeks ago, a female pop star was warned by the gays not to perform for the Boy Scouts and she assented and refused to perform. Let me show you how hypocritical some of those who support the gay agenda are: do you remember some amateur film maker in California, among many of his apparent slights, associated homosexuality with the Muslim prophet? These same supporters were up in arms and some even put aside their penchant for free speech and gave their assent - if not overtly, tacitly - for the film maker’s arrest on some trumped up charges - now, if the homosexual behavior is natural and inherent in some, then why the outrage over the film maker’s depiction of Mohammed… and why the conspicuous absent of the homosexual behavior from the History Channel’s depiction of that episode of the Bible? Perhaps, no question marks should be depicted in the prose immediately above because the queries are rhetorical!

A little over a decade ago, minty fresh out of law school, my first boss, after seeing the many gay lawyers and case managers at the firm we were employed, wondered what he was going to do when the law said that gays could marry and he was invited to a gay wedding by say a Partner of the law firm… would he go to the nuptials, given his religious beliefs - how prescient my boss was then. There are still areas - though fewer and fewer - of the American life that have not succumbed to Political Correctness, manifested in the undue influence of gays and the secular overlords: I take pleasure in the fact that after church on Sundays, when I watched NASCAR… that I can still here a preacher praying in Jesus’ name before the start of every race; and that the irony of gay adoption is the fact that the babies were birthed by women; and that it is still disrespectful to attribute the homosexual behavior to the Prophet Muhammad… yes, grandma was right when she used to say, ‘monkeys indeed know what tree limb to jump on.’

I love it when narrow minded so called Christians, don't realize that there are people of other religions in this world who do not consider the Bible as you do. And I also love it when they refer to the "gay agenda" whatever that is. I am happy that you read and study your Bible and interpert it as you are told, but the Bible is just one book of many religious books that some people follow. If there indeed is an agenda here it is intolerant right wing Christians trying to force their beliefs down the throats of Americans. You are free to believe as you wish, but don't try to force your beliefs on others and don't try denegrate and deny rights to those who do not believe as you do.

My forcing my beliefs on you - are you kidding, no group is more determined to force their behavior even on children than alternative lifestyle folks.

I agree with your comment above my fellow Hubber. It seems that when Christians voice what their beliefs are, it then becomes an issue that we are 'forcing' our beliefs on someone else. We are free to voice what the Bible says just like those who choose to follow an alternative lifestyle. I feel if you choose to live a certain way that's 'alternative' it's human curiosity in general that when someone does something different, to look at it as foreign (because it's out of the norm) just like anything else in society, not just 'gay' people. And might I add, that it was the 'religious book,' the Bible upon which the American nation was supposedly founded...but I can't say that it's still standing on that today. God gives ALL of us a choice to follow or not to follow so in essence God agrees with people having the right to make their own decisions, with the understanding that consequences come with every decision..

"The Bible's Mini-Series On The History Channel Bows To The Gay Agenda..." Wow. Really? Got any paranoia, my man? What did you want? Guys humping on the screen?

Papa told me ---If you think it's PROPAGANDA ---don't watch it. Watch any of the Christian channels...at least they'll vive you a fair shake.

Who's got an agenda here, exactly?

I have never hid my so called agenda - my biases and take on the Christian religion are spelled out for anyone who reads my bio recorded in this forum... now, how am I going to know what is in a Biblical mini-series before it airs and I supposed that it is too much to ask that 'they' stick to the narrative that is recorded in the Bible pertaining to Sodom/Gommorrah... next thing you know the upcoming episode on Jesus will be void of His virgin birth, His attendant miracles, including the Resurrection.

I will never question your biases and your "so called agenda" now that I have a straight answer. Thank you.

You must agree that the Bible is filled with gruesome violence (reason I refuse to see Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ"). Most of it is simply not suitable for film let alone television. If you know some truth about Sodom and Gomorrah, what does it matter how it was portrayed? Is it not the responsiblity of priests and pastors to convey this message and a television may not be the venue for it? If it important to you, imagine what a film version of your truth would look like? Yikes! Why don't you write a Hub giving us the gritty details?

What is a "secular overlord" and why should we base our civil society on a collection of myths called The Bible?

Those so called myths to me are based on the actual Word of God through His Son Jesus Christ found in the Bible and please do not try to convince me otherwise because it is going to be a waste of time on your part!
