Is Television Shaping Our Value System?

    As a former avid viewer of HGTV and Bravo I am now turning the channel everytime they promote gays.

    I am straight, I want to see a straight couple, I want to see the family united, I want to see people married.

    This is destruction of the American society by convincing us this is normal.

    I am not against gays but I am against promoting this lifestyle. This lifestyle means the end of our society - someone knows this and is manipulating us.

    What do you think? Would you turn away from a channel if you felt it's ultimate goal was to change your core value system?

    I don't even like hearing the religious channels so why would I be acceptable to this re-conditioning? I want to see the family unit united - husband, wife and children. I want to see wedding rings. I want to see babies, I want to see our families, our country flourish.

      What? Do you not see that the king is wearing his new outfit: a wonderful  pair of chartreuse and black striped pantaloons, a blouse of magenta and lace, an ermine trimmed violet velvet cape and a pair of the most beautiful pointed silk slippers. 
      In all reality he is quite naked (and ironically this is the vision the gays would probably enjoy the most.)

      Yes, you are, completely, totally and with full bigotry.

      Sad really.

      TV hasn't shaped your morals, your religion has eliminated them.

    I don't watch those channels, so I'm not sure what you mean. But, we tend to fear what we don't understand. Having a more open gay presence in the media helps you see the diversity you may not have been aware existed. I'm not sure how it changes one, except to make one more accepting of the values of others, by exposure.

    Either way, there are plenty of channels to choose from. Watch what makes you happy. The only reason shows are on is because they make money for the corporation making them. Someone might have an agenda, but if they can't find an audience the show won't last.
