CBS declines to run 'mancrunch' homosexual Superbowl ad

Superbowl controversy
public domain
It was announced today that CBS turned down an offer from Mancrunch.com, who wanted to buy a Superbowl commercial. The reason given was, “After reviewing the ad - which is entirely commercial in nature - our Standards and Practices department decided not to accept this particular spot.”

Now, CBS is taking the heat – and may be facing a discrimination lawsuit – for being “homophobic.”

I contacted the local CBS affiliate KPHO to ask: If CBS had chosen to run the ad, would KPHO have had the option to run or not run the ad, and which option would they have chosen? Program Director Seth Parker said “every station has the right to decide what they will put on the air,” but without a preview of the actual ad, he didn’t want to speculate on what KPHO’s decision would have been had CBS chosen to send the gay ad down the pipeline.

Don’t you hate that word “homophobic?” I do. I’ll be the first to admit, the idea of two men kissing makes my skin crawl, so Society says that makes me homophobic. No, wait. Homosexuals say that makes me homophobic. Well, who died and made them Society’s policemen? The idea of a priest sticking his hand down the pants of a little boy also makes my skin crawl. Am I a “pedophobe?” Not real wild about sex with animals, either. Am I a “bestophobe?” (Who do I see about trademarking those words?)

The only reason their is confusion and guilt about the whole “gay” thing is that people stereotype. They equate activities with personality types. A good friend of mine I’ll call Michael is very particular about how he dresses and cooks, has a lisp when he talks, and punctuates his speech with very effeminate gestures. The gay community screams, "He's one of us!" but he is not “gay.” He does not engage in homosexual activity. He is happily married. He does, however, have to endure no end of jokes at his expense because of his apparent lack of testosterone.

When I was very young, my father referred to Liberace as a “pantywaist.” Politically incorrect as that was, it was better than labeling someone as a homosexual. Why? My father also referred to Frank Sinatra as a pantywaist. Neither, compared to John Wayne, was a “real man” in Dad’s book. Dad’s label referred to their demeanor, not their sexual habits. Today, Jay Leno jokes nonstop about Ryan Seacrest’s fussiness, but in the jokes there is a strong implication that Seacrest engages in homosexual acts.

There is a difference between a person’s having a demeanor such as my friend Michael has, and being homosexual. Homosexuality is not a condition or demeanor; it is an activity. No one ever mentions it in polite company, but it is an activity that consists of inserting one’s penis into another man’s mouth or anus, and vice versa. It is an activity that is chosen by its participants, like skateboarding. Surely no one would contend that some people are born to be skateboarders and have no other choice?

The ‘gay’ community hijacked the word “gay.” Then, having done so, they have attempted to hijack a segment of Society. They have proclaimed that everyone who looks, talks, and acts like Ryan Seacrest or my friend Michael is ‘one of them.’ It’s unfair, sure, but it’s far worse. By playing on everyone’s fears of being politically incorrect, by creating labels like "homophobe" for morally upstanding people, they are gradually succeeding in forcing people to abandon moral views that are perfectly proper.

For 200 years, this country accepted the Bible as the “gold standard” of morals. The bumper sticker “God said it, I believe it, and that settles it” would never have been printed if that were not the case. Being a God-fearing person used to be a compliment. The meaning that it still has, for me, is that I don’t fear any man. I could care less about homosexual activists trying to change legislation, programming, or coining cute titles for themselves and derogatory ones for me. God can take care of that.

The Bible is crystal clear on homosexuality. In case you need the references, here they are:

• 1 Corinthians 6:9-10: “Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.” Then verse 11 adds, “And certain of you were these! but you were washed clean…” If you question that statement, that men who formerly engaged in homosexual activity can change, Google “former homosexuals” and see what you find.
• Romans 1:25-27: “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator… Because of this did God give them up to vile passions: for their women changed the natural use into that which is against nature; and in like manner also the males having left the natural use of the female, did burn in their longing toward one another; males with males, doing what is inappropriate with men…”
• Leviticus 18:22: “You may not have sex relations with men, as you do with women: it is a disgusting thing.”

The modern day “gay rights” movement would have us believe that theirs is an ‘alternative’ lifestyle, that they’ve come up with some sort of “new openness.” Not true. Ancient Greece was extremely open-minded on homosexuality and pedophilia. That was the society in which the second half of the Bible was being written. Yet the bible writers of that day, inspired by God, condemned it. And 2,000 years before that, the city of Sodom was very open about their homosexuality. (Genesis 19:4,5) But God’s view of them, stated in Genesis 13:13 was: “Now the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners against Jehovah exceedingly.”

If you’ve read my previous columns, you know I have no love for most churches. Most modern-day churches have chosen to cave in to the gay community. Not surprising. The Bible warned that people would find teacher who would tickle their ears. Our society has become so politically correct that no one wants to take a stand on anything. Either Alexander Hamilton or Malcolm X (depending on who you believe) said, ‘If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything,’ so I suppose one has to give CBS props for standing up for what they know about their audience. They are in the business of keeping people in their seats and keeping them from changing the channel. Clearly, CBS knows that the majority of their audience still have enough Christian values that they will not respond favorably to a commercial showing two men kissing. But it sure would be nice to believe they did it for moral, rather than commercial, reasons.
