    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".

    I think it is her nose job. I don't know why she did that. Sort of the way Renee Zellweger and Jennifer Grey ruined their unique beauty.

    Neither are interracial relationships. I'm sure I wouldn't need to try to convince you that something that isn't in a cultural norm isn't inherently bad, now would I?

    You seem to think there is a rule that all human relationships or activities must produce offspring in order to be acceptable or valuable. How can that be true? Humans engage in thousands of activities and relationships that do not produce offspring. Are they all bad save those that produce babies?

    Ah. So are you standing around being a magnet more frequently so she can jump you?

    No, our social lives just intersect occasionally because we both watch hockey games at the same bar.

    I noticed nobody here answered my initial question:

    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 (Referring to the corruption of Beauty and the Beast)?
    Either the rights to the story have expired and anyone can do anything they want with it, or whoever owns the movie rights to the story allowed it to happen.

    Let's ask Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villenueve, who is credited as the author of the original fairy tale.

    "'Sup Gabby, howzitgoin? So Frenchy, whaddoya think of the new Beauty and the Beast movie?"

    Gabby doesn't answer, because she's quite dead.

    Yeah, I don't think she minds. So get over yourself, Trumpkin. One bad miniseries doesn't make you any less on the wrong side of history here.

    She's gotten older and a little chunkier.

    You know, it is interesting you bring this up, because, with all of this controversy, I took the time (about a week ago) to actually read the original book itself. There isn't even a character Le Fou in this book, nor anywhere near any type of homosexual relationship. My conclusion: Disney has taken upon itself to alter and edit authorship of books for quite some time now.

    So you're thinking Disney started this in '91, and is just remaking it now for a double dose of gay propaganda?

    Um...no kidding...since most of the source material they use is certainly not suitable for children.

    The original Little Mermaid and Snow White and Cinderella, for example?

    Quote hideous imagery in those stories.

    My thought would be, if you don't want your story being changed, don't sell the rights to it. As far as legality is concerned, copyright law in the u.s is life of the author plus 70 years. After that people are free to put whatever spin on it they choose. Since the folktale of batb was wrote in 1790 don't think that qualifies under said protection. In particular the new film was based on the Disney adaptation of the story so those writers sold or were hired by Disney to write it and thus it's copyright belongs to Disney and they can do whatever they choose with it.

    As an example of what I was talking about the writer of Mary Poppins was so concerned with her character being changed that it took decades for her to agree to let someone use it, in this case Disney. And even then she insisted on absolute creative control over the film which she got.

    I am a very spiritual person - I can't deny that whatsoever. If I were in heaven (or, say, purgatory......I'm Catholic). The last thing that I would want is to have my work which I had labored at on earth to be altered and corrupted - of which altering and corrupting is both offensive to the God I serve and to children on earth.
