I don't know how Alabama television is but I imagine the other nine channels are news and dramas

Westerns and oldies from what I've seen. It's not all bad. You get The Rifleman, Bonanza, Wild Wild West...

First the abortion law and now this? Interesting, Alabama seems to want to cause an uproar on social media.

And the source also says that there is alot of outcry for him to be removed from his position and even removed from the country for his alleged statements so...no matter what this source does absolutely nothing to forward your case.



He wont be removed because hes a muslim meaning untouchable in the modern UK, but aside from that Im showing the hypocrisy of the "tolerant" left when it comes to different religion's views on homosexuality. While christians the white ones dont kill gays the ones in the Congo do, and muslims in the middle east kill homosexuals as well yet the left shows vicious hatred of tolerant white christians that allow homosexuality to happen in their nations. Showing gay marriage to kids makes them think its normal because kids dont know any better like muslim toddlers being brainwashed by imams being unable to think outside of an islamic worldview for a long time its indoctrination.

Did this need a thread? It's sad that teh gay is so controversial in some areas of Murica, but this is hardly something that goes against the grain of what you'd expect and there's hardly ramifications for the future coming off it.

It is normal. Millions of same sex couples have been getting married for years, more countries allow same sex marriage every year, and it's never going away in the countries that already have it. And if you have kids, they will probably grow up being okay with gay people despite your efforts, because homophobia has really fallen out of fashion in 21st century culture.

Well plenty of people will get pissed off for passing laws that remove women's rights in 2019 and when as a state you're too ignorant and scared of teh gay to show a cartoon.

I mean that does tend to be the hardline conservative policy when it comes to such things.

It bothers me how they censored this, but it bothers me more that it was a religious and moral issue. Alabama is trying to create its own Christian utopia with its abortion ban and LGBTQ+ discrimination, and I can see how too many Christians in the US will agree with that.

American Christianity often revolves around tradition. Unfortunately, it seems like these traditions are not always Christian. Really hope the SBC and other prominent Southern Conventions do something about this. If Westboro didn't come from the Deep South, think about what would happen if it was.

Gosh dang it Christianity, you can't see that you're heading right for cultism.

Sooner or later they'll have to accept that same-sex marriage is an actual thing, and that this is going to be depicted in television programs and other media because it is a part of everyday life.

Why must christians tolerate homosexuality while other religions in America dont? If one is truely a religious egalitarian then they wouldnt view one religion above the other.

I hate to tear down a point I agree with here, but Liberals don't get on Muslims in the US for opposing gay "marriage" because muslims are proportionately more likely to support gay marriage than Christians.
