Its basic logic to not try and legislate ot enforce religious law in a secular nation and yet here we are.

Natural law is a logical basis for opposition to homosexuality. Granted, it makes it very difficult to be only opposed to homosexuality, but it is a logical basis, if often applied inconsistently.

Is your god also punishing people who get HIV from heterosexual sex and blood transfusions? What about babies who are infected in utero?

No it is really not. Homosexuality is not unnatural. And even if it is that proves nothings as natural does not equal good.

Wrong. Homosexuality has been a tradition at least since the times of the Ancient Greeks.

Well according to google it is:

"a body of unchanging moral principles regarded as a basis for all human conduct."

Which basically proves nothing and is no logical basis to say homosexuality is wrong.

With the decrease in governmental support, PBS is more dependent upon private donors.

Maybe they were afraid of losing that support.

I got a good compromise idea, Canada offers to lift their ban on that pro-life movie if in return Alabama and Arkansas allows the Arthur episode.

Seeing how Alabama is obsessed with Abortion it'd likely work too.

This is a frankly bigoted viewpoint. APT owes you nothing. The people of Alabama owe you nothing.

Should the people of Alabama protest the decision then sure.

APT is funded directly by federal agencies (IE: my taxes) so yes, they do.

Even further actually. There is evidence that points to same sex marriage practices as far back as ancient Mesopotamia.

Or we could not just allow a federally funded broadcasting agency to violate the 1st Ammendment to preserve the feelings of those in one of the worst educated states.

I could see some racists using that argument to demand that Public Broadcasting allow them to host their own content.... oh well it might at least be amusing to see how bad they'd be at it.

I still think my compromise has merit.

Personally if some backwoods yokel wants a public access show where he circle jerks about Lincoln Rockwell or something with his buddies I dont see why they shouldnt be able to.

Give them the 3 AM slot, most public television is off the air around that time anyway. It would at least defeat their argument that Public Television is propaganda and likely would lessen resistance to situations like this.

Or just get both sides pissed off, which shows it's a true compromise.
