    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 CW’s Supergirl (0.7, even with last week). The CW’s 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?

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

    A lot of people have a problem with viewing homosexual individuals as deviant.

    People not going out of their way to see a movie or a television show doesn't really say much about the topics they cover.

    There were a trilogy of Atlas Shrugged movies made, with a total budget of roughly $35 million.

    Much to Paul Ryan's disappointment, they made less than $9 million back total.

    Moonlight cost $1.5 million to make and has already brought in $25 million. Seems like a solid investment.

    One show fails to get viewers, Americans reject The Gays?
    The difference between Breivik and Bannon? One "crusader" horded some guns and bombs for his private war. The other seized the government with the world's greatest military.

    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.

    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?

    Best response quote that I saw written regarding "When We Rise" (which is short, concise and to the point): "Because it's lame and unnatural."

    Maybe next they'll try a toe-sucker or bestiality show.

    So when a show with all straight characters gets bad rattings it means America is rejecting straight people?

    Of course it's not "normal" in that only 3-5% of the population are homosexuals. Who cares about "normal"? And the idea that it "goes against nature" is simply a naturalistic fallacy. By that same argument, remaining single and celibate goes against nature. Are you gonna start criticizing Paul advocating remaining single in 1 Corinthians 7?

    People are more and more accepting of homosexuals and that trend is going to continue. Stories like Blue Babies Pink (which I highly recommend to everyone! Brett is a fantastic story teller.) are changing the hearts and minds of Christians and I know that just gets your panties in a twist.

    What evidence do you have that viewers shunned it because of the homosexuality focus as opposed to it not being very good?
    • The unexamined life is not worth living.
    • Wisdom is knowing how little we know.
    • The arguments stay the same...only the sides making those arguments change.
