TVC seeking equal time to challenge GLAAD PSA; too bad both viewpoints aren't equal

by Jeremy Hooper

   In response to GLAAD's partnering with the CBS soap opera "As The World Turns" to produce a PSA encouraging gay acceptance, the folks at the Traditional Values Coalition are requesting that the network provide them with equal time to present their anti-gay views. From TVC:

TVC Urges CBS To Provide Equal Time
Traditional Values Coalition Chairman Rev. Louis P. Sheldon has written a letter of concern to Mr. Leslie Mooves, President and CEO of CBS asking that he provide TVC with equal time to respond to GLAAD’s PSA.

Rev. Sheldon told Moonves: “Most major religions denominations consider homosexuality a sinful and disordered behavior. GLAAD calls these Americans discriminatory and hateful because of their religious beliefs."

At the very least, I believe CBS should apply an equal time standard to this sort of activity. My organization, Traditional Values Coalition, would be willing to discuss some sort of message which would provide the balance lacking from GLAAD’s anti-religious attacks.

Relatedly, we hear Mr. Sheldon is also pitching his own show to the Eye net called "Are We Sure The World Turns?" wherein he will challenge science, logical thought, and widely accepted realities with his own interpretations of morality and truth.

Should be good TV, that.

We'll have to wait and see how Moonves responds to TVC's request to go on air and plead for non-acceptance. We do know, however, that if we were network execs, our own consideration of Sheldon's proposal would snarkily begin, "Well, we do allow douche ads..."
