'Concerned Women' not concerned enough with Logo programming

by Jeremy Hooper

The Concerned Women For America really need to concern themselves with fact checking when it comes to tomorrow's launch of Logo.

You might remember a few weeks back when CWA's Martha Kleder prematurely claimed that "MTV launched the homosexual-themed channel Logo in February" while decrying something else she found too accepting for her liking. Well now in their latest press release, the CWAers say that:

"LOGO will feature the 16th Annual Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Awards, as well as series like “Queer as Folk” and new feature films like “Happy Endings.”

This despite the fact that head Logoer Brian Graden has made a point of saying that "Queer As Folk" will not be part of the network's lineup. Of course to them it all reads as "Camera-friendly Sinners" anyways.

CWA is calling the Logo launch an "assault on children's innocence," and though tempting, Logo is instead going with the tag line "See yourself, be yourself." Rumor has it that the "ex-gay" loving CWA will diligently spend the next few months trying to convince the accepting slogan that 'yourself' is a depraved wicked beast, so be something that you're not, sinner.
