If more of us took a stand maybe we could have some decent
TV programs. Jim Neugent is a coach in Childress, Texas.
My name is Jim Neugent. I wrote to ABC (on-line) concerning a
program called "THE PRACTICE." In last nights episode,
one of the lawyer's mothers decided she is gay and wanted her
son to go to court and help her get a marriage license so she
could marry her 'partner.' ! I sent the following letter to ABC
yesterday and really did not expect a reply, but I did get
My original message was:
ABC is obsessed (or should I say abscessed) with the subject
of homosexuality. I will no longer watch any of your attempts
to convince the world that homosexuality is OK. THE PRACTICE
can be a fairly good show, but last night's program was so typical
of your agenda. You picked the 'dufus' of the office to be the
one who was against the idea of his mother being gay and made
him look like a whiner because he had convictions. This type
of mentality calls people like me a "gay basher."
Read the first chapter of Romans (that's in the Bible) and see
what the apostle Paul had to say about it.... He, God and Jesus
were all 'gay bashers'. What if she'd fallen in love with her
cocker spaniel? Is that an alternative lifestyle? (By the way,
the Bible speaks against that, too.) --Jim Neugent
Here is ABC's reply from the ABC on-line webmaster:
How about getting your nose out of the Bible (which is ONLY a
book of stories compiled by MANY different writers hundreds of
years ago) and read the declaration of independence (what our
nation is built on), where it says "All Men are Created
equal," and try treating them that way for a change! Or
better yet, try thinking for yourself and stop using an archaic
book of stories as your lame crutch for your existence. You are
in minority in this country and your boycott will not affect
us or our freedom of statement.
Jim Neugent's second response to ABC:
Thanks for your reply. From your harsh reply, evidently I hit
a nerve. I will share it with all with whom I come in contact.
Hopefully, the Arkansas Democrat Newspaper will include it in
one of their columns and I will be praying for you. - -Jim Neugent
Note: Wouldn't Satan just love it if people stopped using the
Bible for a crutch? Please resend this to everyone in your mailbox.
