I had several thoughts leaning both ways. ABC must have given some thought about how their response might be used. What do you think?:confused:

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 (or should I say abscessed) ! 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 lifes tyle? (By the way, the Bible speaks against that, too.)
--Jim Neugent


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 existence. You are in minority in this country and your boycott will not affect us or our freedom of statement.

That show got cancelled. Really it just got replaced by Boston Legal. I've watched both for several years. The way they dealt with the homosexuality issue really wasn't that offensive. I'll bet this e-mail is four years old.

I seriously doubt that ABC's response is authentic.

This thread borders on being political, we should probably just drop it.

ABC has every right to fight the intolerance of the right with their own form of intolerance.

And the letter writer now has every reason to beleive that ABC is actively using The Pratice to convey their left of center social political message.

I don't see it as political. No party is involved here. More religious than politcal. I simply brought it to the table as fodder to discuss who's more correct here. And this is the Lounge.
