Fall's televised tribe divisions not confined to 'Survivor'

by Jeremy Hooper

Wayne Besen's Truth Wins Out organization is speaking out against "Pure Passion," a new "ex-gay"-focused television show that's soon to launch on Christian television.

We, however, say to Wayne: "Easy tiger. What's the big deal? I mean, there are loads of fictional programs hitting the screen this fall. For instance, there's a new NBC show called 'Heroes,' where ordinary people will learn they have super powers. And while that may be a much less far-fetched concept than people just realizing all of a sudden that they're no longer gay (yet not heterosexual, mind you, just 'ex-gay'), we should be open to fantasy program on our nation's airwaves. Any good parent teaches their kid the line between reality and fictional television at an early age, so there should be little danger that the vast majority of young'uns would take the so obviously make-believe plot of the show as truth. So Wayne, we think we should just sit back and welcome this latest entrant into the pantheon of escapism TV, as it will surely join such classics as 'The Flying Nun,' 'My Mother The Car,' 'ALF,' and "Star Trek" in the museum of fantasy programming."

Wait, what? The show's going to be a talk show where such characters as Alan Chambers will attempt to pass off this unsupported "gays can change" concept as fact? Oh. Well someone's not getting a GLAAD Media Award!
