ABC's homosexual agenda
I received this in an e-mail and it has been verified by snopes for whatever that is worth. I know it is true because I have sent similar letters to NBC and ABC in the past and had similar responses. Not all responses have been this bitter but all have been in the same vein.
A Coach In Childress , Texas
Writes To ABC Network
My name is Jim Neugent. I wrote to ABC (on-line) concerning a program called 'THE PRACTICE.' In last nights episode, one of the lawyer's mothers decided she is gay and wanted her son to go to court and help her get a marriage license so she could marry her 'partner.' I sent the following letter to ABC yesterday and really did not expect a reply, but I did get one.
My original message was:
ABC is obsessed with the subject of homosexuality. I will no longer watch any of your attempts to convince the world that homosexuality is OK. ' THE PRACTICE' can be a fairly good show, but last night's program was so typical of your agenda. You picked the 'dufus' of the office to be the one who was against the idea of his mother being gay, and made him look like a whiner because he had convictions. This type of mentality calls people like me a 'gay basher.'
Read the first chapter of Romans ( that's in the Bible); and see what the apostle Paul had to say about it..... He, God and Jesus were all 'gay bashers'. What if she'd fallen in love with her cocker spaniel? Is that an alternative life style? (By the way, the Bible speaks against that, too.)
Here is ABC's reply from the ABC on-line webmaster:
How about getting your nose out of the Bible (which is ONLY a book of stories compiled by MANY different writers hundreds of years ago) and read the declaration of independence (what our nation is built on), where it says 'All Men are Created equal,' and try treating them that way for a change!
Or better yet, try thinking for yourself and stop using an archaic book of stories as your lame crutch for your ex istence. You are in the minority in this country, and your boycott will not affect us at ABC or our freedom of statement.
Jim Neugent's second response to ABC:
Thanks for your reply. From your harsh reply, evidently I hit a nerve. I will share it with all with whom I come in contact. Hopefully, the Arkansas Democrat Newspaper will include it in one of their columns and I will be praying for you.

Note: Wouldn't Satan just love it if people stopped using the Bible for a crutch?
Please resend this to everyone in your mailbox.
I wonder if the p erson from ABC considered how many people would eventually read this e-mail!
Please, if you are a Christian, pass this on to others so they may be aware.
WE NEED TO SAVE WHAT WE HAVE LEFT OF THIS COUNTRY!
Now that I think about it, I realize there's not one single show I watch on that network.
The views and opinions posted here are my own. They do not reflect the corporate policies of my employer and will most likely get me fired at some point.
For once you might be right al.
After watching all those john wayne movies in my youth I just can't keep the thought of kill red skins and gooks out of my head. no offense glen.
From Urban Legend
Synopsis Jim Neugent complained to ABC about the pro-gay themes of its television series 'The Practice' and received a rude antireligious rant in reply.
See the email here.
Is it true? Yes, but it's not quite the whole story.
Why? Yes, there really is a Jim Neugent. And, yes, he really did send the email complaint to ABC and received the rude reply from an ABC employee. But the story didn't end there.
What the email does not mention is that the ABC employee who originally replied was not authorized to do so and was fired as a result of the rant. The email doesn't mention that Mr. Neugent received two polite apologies from ABC for the incident.
Comments Whether or not one enjoys ABC's programming, it's hard to see how the response of an unauthorized ABC employee with no responsibility for programming content is proof of a particular agenda at ABC, particularly when ABC acted quickly to apologize and discipline the employee.
One brief note: some versions of the email describe Mr. Neugent as living in Childress, Texas. Mr. Neugent was living in Mena, Arkansas when he corresponded with ABC.

I bet they see a couple hundred letters like yours a day.

There is a vast difference between movies and programs about past historical periods and events slanted or not. Besides not all programs or movies were about war or Indians there was no agenda except during the war.
The difference is almost every program on network TV, movies and cable pushes a gay agenda which to the majority of people in this country is an aberrant lifestyle. We do not want our children or grand children to a lifestyle that is against our beliefs, this goes for any overt sexuality it is not necessary for a program to be entertaining.
A woman that has been on a soap for 19 years was fired because it was against her beliefs to portray a homosexual woman that is wrong. There is a new movie out that has lesbian vampires; please.
The point is the quality of the writers and actor today is sub standard at least compared to the past and they need nudity, sexuality and shock to gain rating instead of taking the time and having the ability create intelligent programming. It is also an agenda to indoctrinate today’s children with their perverted ideals and subvert the beliefs of the majority in this country.
Not sure how two women lapping up each other's love is any more perverted than me doing it.
