Anti-equality young person Ryan Anderson: 'Glee' corrupts youth!

by Jeremy Hooper

Ryan Anderson, one of the four or five young people who the other side keeps pushing forward in order to convince us that they are stand-ins for a much larger movement (Peters, Teetsel, and Seery being the other main subjects), shares the following thoughts about the very pro-LGBT Glee:

"We should be as concerned about what the FOX TV show Glee has done to corrupt a young generation as we are about anything the Court has done. But what is the Christian alternative to Glee? We need to encourage those with vocations in the artistic realm to continue their important work."
Ryan T. Anderson, in a speech to the Alliance Defending Freedom

A few things.

  1. Really? As concerned with what a lightweight TV show has done than with what the United States Supreme Court does? I mean, don't get wrong—if that really is the Heritage Foundation/ADF priority list, then I'm certainly not complaining. Just surprised.

  2. What exactly does "corrupt" look like you to, Ryan? Kids who are more accepting of their peers? Kids who hold conversation even though difference and divide? Kids who know the all the lyrics to "Don't Stop Believing"? I mean, what exactly has this show done to "corrupt"? Does it even have that power?

  3. Things are not anti-Christian just because far-right, conservative, politically active Christians claim them to be! Glee is a show that has actually talked a lot about Christianity! More than most shows in fact! This show has done several episodes all about faith, and the show has several characters who are outspoken about their Christianity. It's also a show that, year after year, makes Christmas carols—including decidedly religious Christmas carols, to be clear—the centerpiece of its winter finale. Again, this happens more than anywhere else on TV. Just because Ryan T. Anderson doesn't accept these characters as Christians or these celebrations as God-centered doesn't negate the fact that they are.

  4. When you do launch your version of Glee, will your Kurt and Blaine stand-ins be "ex-gays"? Because if that, the endgame messaging in which all anti-LGBT Christian messages ultimately culminate, is the kind of thing that you'd like to put on network TV, don't lie yourself into believing that this will help your cause. We on the right side of history, civil rights, and science are more than ready to have that conversation with a wider audience! Far too many in the general public are unaware of how far the "protect marriage" movement can and does go!!

Now as for Modern Family? Total propaganda tool that the Obama administration designed for its own militant agenda. Justice Ginsburg is a script adviser, actually.
