    >If more of us took a stand maybe we could have some decent TV programs.


    >Jim Neugent is a coach in Childress, Texas.


    >Jim writes:


    >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 lifestyle? (By the way, the Bible speaks against that,

    >Here is ABC's reply from the ABC on-line webmaster:


    >How about getting your nose o ut 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.


    >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.


    >- -Jim Neugent


    >Note : Wouldn't Satan just love it if people stopped using the Bible for a

    >crutch? Please resend this to everyone in your mailbox.


    >-- Thanks, Jim Neugent


    >I wonder if the person from ABC considered how many people would read this

    >e-mail! This is one we should definitely pass on.

    I stopped watching ABC a while back, for that very reason. Their programming makes me sick (as does most programming on all channels these days).

    It is an Email I received.

    Maybe you can give him a call.

    I stopped watching all the networks, but expecially ABC, several years ago.

    Besides Fox News and the History Channel, only Bugs Bunnie catches any of my time! Call me shallow but I don't want any of the tripe they think is entertainment. With that kind, count me OUT.

    I like the phrase that Fox coined, "Fair & Balanced."

    What I keep in mind, it's entertainment and "whatever", is subject to change. :D

    I watch...

    The History Channel, the Weather Channel, and Fox News...

    I can't watch Bugs Bunny because those cartoons aren't on any of the channels we get here anymore. I refuse to watch any cartoon except for Looney Tunes though.

    Despite having 45 channels, I could do without about 41 of them. In fact, I could probably be happy without a TV at all. I do like the radio though for my classic rock.

    kind of off subject so I'm done.

    My TV watching is "Andromeda" on Saturdays, here. As for the rest of it: that which doesn't sicken me, just doesn't interest me. Can't get cable without spending about $90,000 for the incoming line, and satellite at $45 per month forever doesn't particularly make my heart flutter, either. FirstInLine watches "Jeopardy" and "Antiques RoadShow."

    Ttttthat's all Fffffffolks.
