Pat Robertson: Hollywood is going to force us to watch homosexuals until Jesus comes back
But, that's the point of a story/tv program, right? You can't have a plot without something "bad" in it.

Why would anyone think your awful for not watching a show you dont like, people dont watch shows they dont like all the time. You seem defensive for no reason.

he was speaking to his 'target audience
but I do agree there is a lot of gay characters on tv nowadays in sitcoms and 'reality' shows
its really nothing compared to the softporn on european tv
My husband and I have a game when we watch new TV shows. It's called count the gay characters.
There are almost no new TV shows that don't have a gay character, the show may not be multiracial which is what we really need to see on TV, but you can be certain there will be a gay character. It is practically required for every TV show now to the point of ridiculousness.
It's not that we object to gay characters, it's just so gratutious in TV and movies these days, so gratutious as to be absurd.
When people are offended there is the off button, we just FF the porn that is on most TV shows these days and explicit lesbian scenes which are prevalent.
If we end up FF due to porn, offensive language, excessive violence, more than 1/4 or more of the show, then we don't watch it anymore.
That is our choice, if you think I'm awful, tough, it's my right and choice.
And yes that means there are a lot of shows we don't watch, our choice, our business, a right everyone should exercise, don't like it, don't watch it.
If TV wants to put porn, offensive language, and excessive violence on TV, they deserve to have the shows fail and should not complain if no one wants to watch it.

Not to, you know, post on topic or anything, but what Pat Robertson is saying is that Christians (and like thinking moralists) have lost the "culture war" and the moral cesspool that the media has created will never be drained. Whether you think that he's an idiot or not, it is difficult to argue the point.
Just as an example, I like to cook, and I like to watch cooking shows. Cooking shows, where you have recipes and techniques taught to you. Pretty mundane stuff. Well, until recently…
And that's just cooking shows, for pity's sakes.
