As The World Turns Gay Kiss
I love the christian "value" of hypocrisy.
Now CBS and Proctor & Gamble (the company that sponsors/produces (?) the show are taking a huge risk here. It's not common to have a gay couple on tv (especially any couples that aren't there for comedy) and here we have two young men starting a relationship. And I guess daytime tv viewers hate this.
Now for the hypocrisy. I just visited the As The World Turns Message Board and found these comments. (I appologize if the links are messed up. CBS, like many TV networks, have the most gawd-awful forum software imaginable.)
I have watch as the world turns for 30 years. How could you help to young men go to hell? I hope the find the lord Jesus soon be for it to late.
now that atwt had shown two guys making love in public, it has caused too much damage to soaps on daytime tv. it is such a shame and a waste of time.
It is bad enough that we constantly see men and women rolling around in the sheets and slobbering on each other, now you went to a whole other level. Shame on you, have you forgotten that children could possibly be in the room while this mess is rolling? I am very dissapointed in the show and like other viewers that still have morals and have the guts to speak out against this madness,
Remember, this is about a kiss. Just a kiss.
Those are a few examples. There are many more, but the posters usually only had one or two posts, so I'd count them as trolls then regular contributers of that forum.
Anyone who said that the Luke/Noah kiss was reprehensible to god and it was a sin seems to forget about everything else that goes on.
Think of all the lying, the cheating, the coveting, the other sexually "immoral" behavior. That's what these soap operas are. They're everything god hates in 60 minutes.
And these people get pissed because two guys kiss.
So thank you CBS/P&G/ATWT for pushing the envelope. Just make sure you push back when hypocrites come ringing your doorbell.
The YouTube video has one of those "content warning" screens on it. Even though it's a kiss. So here's a link to the vid which may work better.
Decided to add the video from YouTube. You know, to make hypocritical religious types mad.
