Offending the moral sensibilities of millions of Americans, Time Magazine is featuring cover stories showing two white homosexual couples kissing. The Right Scoop blog ran a “censored version of the offensive covers.”
John Aravosis, the homosexual activist who runs Americablog.com, said this is part of a propaganda campaign to normalize homosexuality. He said, “The kiss has been quite a powerful political weapon in the gay arsenal for a while now. And checking our archives, it’s rather amazing how important the ‘gay kiss’ has been to our political struggle over the years.”
The purpose is to desensitize people to homosexuality and increase acceptance of the lifestyle.
Media bias is also evident in the influence of the media-funded National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA).
The NLGJA says coverage of the homosexual marriage debate before the Supreme Court was “balanced—supportive even” and that program hosts “felt compelled to disagree with them [opponents of homosexual marriage] on air.”
We noted the media’s failure to cover the March for Marriage in Washington, D.C.
On the Time cover photos, the NLGJA said, “The black-and-white photos are an interesting, provocative selection. The magazine didn’t opt for family photos of smiling, nonthreatening gay and lesbian families and their kids: It went for the part of same-sex marriage that may be most off-putting to mainstream cultures. The kissing, the sexuality. It’s a bold choice for a mainstream publication to make.”
Regarding the story itself, the NLGJA said it “was largely positive, save for a colorful sentence about AIDS and bathhouses.”
The offensive phrase was that the deadly disease AIDS was “burning outward from the bathhouses…” These are places where anonymous gay sex is common. Homosexuals are determined to keep coverage of the health hazards of homosexuality out of mainstream media.
On his Reliable Sources program, supposedly devoted to media criticism, host Howard Kurtz featured two homosexual rights supporters, John Aravosis and Jennifer Rubin, who writes “The Right Turn” blog for The Washington Post.
Nevertheless, he noted the bias in the coverage, explaining that “Liberal commentators are thrilled that the marriage debate is swinging their way, at least in the court of public opinion, while many conservative pundits were muted or surprisingly supportive.” He cited Bill O’Reilly of Fox News declaring that “The compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals,” and dismissing opponents as Bible-thumpers.
The latter was apparently a reference to the Christian teaching that marriage involves a man and a woman and that homosexuality is prohibited in the Bible because it is unnatural and sinful.
Rush Limbaugh countered: “So how many of you who watch Fox are Bible thumpers? Do you think there are any Bible thumpers, quote/unquote, that watch Fox? Because last night you were sort of marginalized on [O’Reilly’s show] The Factor as not having a compelling argument and just being a bunch of Bible thumpers.”
Limbaugh also noted the influence of the “Gay Mafia,” which he described as “the activist homosexual lobby” contributing “big bucks” to the Democratic Party and leading the campaign for homosexual marriage.
Interestingly, it was Time Magazine that ran a 2008 story, “The Gay Mafia That’s Redefining Liberal Politics.” One of the rich members of the group was identified as Timothy Gill of Denver, the founder of Quark, Inc., a computer software company and a tech multimillionaire, who says he has singlehandedly “invested more than $220 million” in the cause of homosexual rights through his Gill Foundation.
An earlier 2007 Time story, “The Gay Mogul Changing U.S. Politics,” estimated his fortune at $425 million. Denver political analyst Floyd Ciruli compared Gill to George Soros: “What you have are extremely wealthy individuals who aren’t personally interested in running for anything but have this tremendous passion. Like George Soros, Tim Gill is actually changing the political landscape”
But Soros, too, has a big hand in changing the landscape for the benefit of the homosexuals. In 2009, he financed the “New Beginning Initiative” to encourage the Obama Administration to make “policy changes” to benefit the homosexual movement.
The Gill Foundation is also behind “OutGiving,” which claims to have “provided unique opportunities for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and allied donors to gather in a private setting to engage in conversation with each other and with respected LGBT and allied leaders about ways to advance equality through philanthropy.” OutGiving says it has “inspired hundreds of donors to give more strategically and more generously to improve the lives of LGBT [Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender] people across the country and around the world.”
The biannual OutGiving Conference is said to be “geared toward individuals whose annual philanthropy exceeds $25,000 and who are interested in increasing the effectiveness of their giving in support of the LGBT movement.”
They are meeting in Chicago, Illinois this week. However, the event is by “invitation-only” and “private,” and “no media are permitted.”
Don’t look for the homosexuals in the media to blow their cover.
Media bias is also evident in the fact that 13 of the top 15 newspapers in the country have editorialized their support for homosexual marriage. The pro-homosexual American Foundation for Equal Rights identified these publications as:
- USA Today
- The New York Times
- Los Angeles Times
- San Jose Mercury News
- The Washington Post
- Daily News
- Chicago Tribune
- Chicago Sun-Times
- The Dallas Morning News
- Houston Chronicle
- The Philadelphia Inquirer
- The Arizona Republic
- The Denver Post
The homosexual movement senses that victory is just around the corner. And Limbaugh himself says federal approval of homosexual marriage may be “inevitable.” But referring to the group’s March 26 March for Marriage, Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage said, “Forget the media hype and confusion, our numbers today show that the American people are strongly pro-marriage and pro-marriage Americans aren’t going anywhere. This is the beginning of the fight to protect marriage. Our opponents know this, which is why they are hoping the Supreme Court will cut short a debate they know they will ultimately lose if the political process and democracy are allowed to run their course. Those who believe that marriage is the unique and special union of one man and one woman are on the right side of history.”
