Teenage orgies, brought to you by the AFA
I got this wonderful missive from the American Family Association today.
In summary, Viacom agreed to donate a paltry $3.5 million to the FCC in exchange for dropping thousands of indecency complaints filed against it by taxpaying consumers.
Basically, the FCC cut a deal with CBS. What was the result? CBS immediately went back to their standard fare of lewd and indecency programs.
On December 31, 2004, CBS re-aired an episode of Without A Trace, complete with an extended teen-age orgy scene. The original broadcast of this episode had thousands of FCC complaints against it, which were tossed out in the November FCC/CBS "back-scratching" deal.
Click here to view the abominable Without A Trace scene for yourself! Be warned, it contains offensive and graphic scenes.
So I clicked there, because if there's one thing I have in common with the good folks at AFA, it's a deep interest in watching teenagers at an orgy. As usual, they disappoint me. The video is grainy as all get-out, and it's hard to tell that the kids are wearing more clothes than you would assume orgiers would wear. It's almost as if they are trying to make it as hard to see as possible, so that your imagination fills in scandalous details that wouldn't be on TV. But these good people would never do something like that, now would they?
Because of these kinds of backdoor deals, the FCC continues to allow networks like CBS to flood the airwaves with indecency.
Damn, who knew that the letter-writers at AFA like their floods of indecency in through the backdoor? I feel a blush coming on.
I'm not going to bore you with the contact material to make a complaint. If enough people complain, then CBS might actually scale back the amount of sex they air and then how will the folks at AFA get their rocks off? But I will point out this bit of business in the signature line of the email:
It's Not Gay: This 28-minute video presents a story that few have heard, allowing former homosexuals the opportunity to tell their own story in their own words. Along with medical and mental health experts, these individuals express a clear warning that the sanitized version of homosexuality being presented to students is not the whole truth.
"It's"? I hate to overstep my bounds here, but I have a feeling that whatever else Jesus would do, he probably wouldn't use the sexless pronoun "it" to describe gays and lesbians.
