Quote# 90121

LaBarbera: Homosexual activists in many ways drive our culture, they decide what’s going to be in a movie, we see all the portrayals, homosexuals are the most positively portrayed in the movies and on TV, Christians are often negatively portrayed and stereotyped. In many ways, in fact Judith you are Jewish, I think you’re starting to see Hollywood what they’re doing to Christians and to people of faith who actually adhere to traditional values, they’re demonizing them like the Nazis used to do to the Jews. They would compare Jews to rats and we see these vicious, ugly caricatures of Christians coming out of Hollywood. How did we go from that in such a short amount of time to homosexuality being deviant conduct which wasn’t spoken about to now driving our culture?

Reisman: You answered it. I mean it’s not that much time when you think that Germany, Hitler’s Germany, I think was twenty years that went from a basically conservative German culture to the films being controlled by—I forgot which one—and the films being made that described what you are now describing for Christians well that was what they were doing for Jews and actually they included Christians in there quite often too, and the schools were taken over by the fascist government and the children were told that their parents, who were old-fashioned, were old-fashioned and you know you don’t have to tell your parents, you mustn’t tell your parents, what you’re learning here in school. They gutted the libraries of anything that was Christian in belief and they pulled down the Ten Commandments. You had the Ten Commandments all over the walls of the schools in Germany, just like we had in the United States of America, and so they had removed all the Ten Commandments and they put up of course Hitler. Well here in the United States we removed the Ten Commandments but we didn’t put up Hitler we put up the AIDS posters, which is just as telling, isn’t it?

Vet Emergency

If you ever compare anything besides ethnic cleansing, genocide and/or fascism to the Holocaust, I think Israel gets to take your Jewish card and punch you in the dick.

Ok, lets just say for the sake of saying, there are no gods, people are just people, some are black, some are white, some are gay, some are straight, some are Chinese, some are idiots. You, for example, are an idiot.

Wait, Americans for the Truth About Homosexuality Radio Hour?

Hey, let's just start a radio show based on nothing more than this petty issue. It really should be a non-issue, but because we're perfectly sound, well-rounded individuals who just so happen to be so obsessed with it...

Fundamentalist Christians are blackening their own image. Gay rights websites like Truth Wins Out quote fundies' words verbatim, and the ugliness of homophobic bigotry disgusts a lot of the straight audience.

There's no gay conspiracy to make fundies look evil; they're doing a fine job on their own.

@Mattiedef: Good to know American High Schools aren't just used to train quarterbacks.

"Homosexuals are the most positively portrayed". Questionable. Often they seem to be portrayed as stereotypes, even if positive. And part of the more positive portrayals is to counteract the history of portrayals of homosexuals as deviant or diseased, like those public information films from the 50s.
"Traditional values", left undefined, of course. What exactly are they?
I don't think homosexuality "drives your culture". It's just more accepted. If people are more tolerant, that is a good thing.
For the rest of it, German history fail. The Nazis were reacting against the decadence and tolerance of the Weimar years with conservatism, more or less analogous to what these people are attempting.
If you watch "Hitler Junge Quex", or something like that, the hero of it is a Christian, in contrast to the Jews who are the villains. And I don't think it's accurate to say that parents weren't informed of what was being taught in schools.
Hitler... AIDS posters... oh I give up. I thought I might be actually able to make some sort of sense of this, but it's just nasty authoritarian lies, trying to pretend like they're not the natural heirs of the Nazis.
