Family Research Council wants to silence Dan Savage sitcom. Will Kirsten Powers come to his defense? Of course not!

Dan Savage
Here is something for Kirsten Powers to write about. Oh wait. She only cares about "The Silencing" of conservative voices no matter how much vile they spew.

Us lgbts and liberals are on our own.

From a Family Research Council email:

What does an X-rated gay sex columnist have in common with Walt Disney? Nothing. And that's exactly the problem. Most Americans have probably never heard of Dan Savage, but unfortunately, that's all about to change this fall. Despite massive outcry -- thousands of phone calls, emails, and petition signers -- Disney's ABC is taking its LGBT activism to new lows with plans to bring the controversial Christian-basher to life in a sitcom called "The Real O'Neals."

Savage, whose "anti-bullying" videos are a favorite of the President's and Hollywood, has turned out to be the biggest bully of all -- using his platform as an opportunity to ridicule students and curse faith. Lately, though, the militant atheist has taken a break from hurling sexual threats at Republicans (warning: graphic content) to focus on this new fall sitcom, which producers say, "will follow the younger years of Savage's life and the experiences of his family following his decision to come out of the closet."

The trailer is already worse than anyone could imagine. When the show isn't mocking Christians, it's celebrating homosexuality. "…[I]t's a savage, if you will, caricature of a Catholic family and the Faith, where the parents are divorcing, one son has anorexia, the daughter runs a fake charity, and the son pictured in the middle is gay. Oh, and there's a Virgin Mary statue over the toilet."

While the Left is counting the days until the comedy airs, Savage's real-life legacy of bioterrorism and death threats is no joking matter. Our friends at Media Research Center (MRC) have come out swinging at ABC for glorifying a man whose dark attacks on Christians and conservatives are so profane that the network couldn't even air them on TV. Already, a coalition of organizations have sent a letter to ABC, asking the network to reconsider giving Savage another platform to be an apostle of division and hate. On, MRC's grassroots petition to get "The Real O'Neals" off the air has 10,000 signatures -- and counting. #CancelSavage is the cry on Twitter, where Americans are telling ABC to stop its one-sided attack on men and women of faith.

In other words, the Family Research Council and others are attempting to "silence" a show because it was created by Dan Savage. Granted, FRC lodges some accusations against Savage (with links to right-wing sites) but that is besides the point. The rallying cry of many anti-gays on the right  is that lgbts are attempting to silence those who disagree with us. Goodness knows they flood the airwaves and the bookstores with this tripe of a talking point.

And the concern trolls looking to make a buck aid and abet by giving ill-informed opinions or writing sloppy one-sided books on the matter.

How much do you want a bet that these concern trolls (particularly one blond pseudo-liberal)  will be silent over this situation instead of telling FRC to hush up and simply turn the channel. They are too busy collecting the bucks for unfairly labeling lgbts as bullies

For the record, here is a trailer for 'The Real O'Neals.' I find the show hilarious:

Savage's "bioterrorism." Even if that story were true, bioterrorism is total hyperbole.

The funny thing is that I would generally not have known about this show unless FRC was making a big complaint about it. Its funny how every "censorship campaign" seems to backfire like this. It usually acts as a promotional.
