    Default Uh oh! LGBTQ Ratings Flop (Rejection by Americans of LGBTQ Propoganda)

    The miniseries "When We Rise" (centralized on two gay men and other LGBTQ issues) featured on ABC which received abundant advertising during the Oscars has apparently flopped - it tanked from the first episode: From Deadline: "It was a noble effort, but viewers largely shunned it, with the opening two hours averaging a paltry 0.7 in 18-49 and 3 million viewers coming off the strong Bachelor lead-in." When We Rise was the lowest-rated program on the Big 4 [CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX] and second lowest-rated overall last night, matching the CWs Supergirl (0.7, even with last week). The CWs Jane The Virgin (0.3) was off by a tenth

    From Lifesitenews: "The homosexual magazine [The Advocate] was reduced to urging its readers to start watching When We Rise, as well as Oscar Best Picture-winning movie, Moonlight, which features a young gay black man coming out and a homosexual relationship. As Forbes reported, Moonlight is among the lowest-grossing Oscar Best Picture winners ever.

    My comment on this is: I believe, that because God lives in all of us, God, graciously gives mankind a certain level of a sense of discernment - whether we are religious or non- religious. (Whether we accept this discernment or not, is up to us).

    I believe that most humans can sense (even without religious teaching) that homosexuality is "not normal". It absolutely goes against nature - a nature that is visible to most. It goes against life itself in that it produces no offspring on its own. One normally senses "something is off here" - something "isn't right about this".

    Final comment on this: "the propaganda doesn't seem to be working".

    Do you actually think that parents/kids went to see Beauty and the Beast to see one or two seconds of a "gay scene" (weasely put in by a gay producer with, "who knows what motives regarding children") which should have never have been put in there in the first place?

    Secondly, I have a very serious question to ask here of any reader reading this: "what if you wrote a story that was near and dear to your heart - you put your whole heart and soul into it. You could even very well be a devout Christian, Jew, Muslim, etc. Then someone whom you've never met, don't even know, takes your painstaking work, and decides to "add in storyline" that was never intended by you to be added - and, in fact, this "added storyline" was to promote an outlandish agenda to "corrupt children". How would you feel? And my next question to you is - how is this even legal to do?

    of course not, but a fair amount of Buzz was created (both for and against) LeFou.
    as to the question of whether its legal? guess who owns the rights to Beauty and the Beast?

    Wait, so how would I feel if I sold the rights to my work for someone else to make a movie how they want, and they change things in it? Well, I would feel that I shouldn't sell the rights to my stories to people if I may not like the outcome.

    All you need to do is write a series of books like Martin or Rowling that are so insanely popular that the studios will bend over backwards and give you whatever creative control you want just so they can cash in on your work.

    I don't think that Martin has creative control over HBO's GoT.

    Have you never heard of Hollywood? They have been doing that from the beginning. Jazz up or eliminate the storyline to make it better "fit" a motion picture. As far as corrupting children... hello?

    As far as I know the Beast is male and Belle is female, Gaston is male and he's hot for female Belle so the only touch of gay in this movie is Gaston sidekick crush soo what is your point?

    the main stream media has a problem with homosexuality being deviant behavior so they are working tirelessly to make it, well, mainstream.

    And some people, like the Republican leadership of Congress and much of conservative talk radio, have tried to mainstream objectivism. Apparently that hasn't worked so well.

    I have a lot of problems with the MSM, but there is nothing deviant about homosexuality, and have no problem with it being considered mainstream.
    Putting ketchup on fish sticks is deviant, homosexuality is not.
