Shock and Awe: Horror on the Airwaves

Mar 8, 2015

Wow, so it has finally come to this. The moral freefall of the West is now all but complete. If we can allow this sort of stuff on television, then you know we have reached rock bottom. Just how dare some people even think like this? Utterly revolting!

So what sheer horror has been allowed? Was there a snuff film aired on primetime TV? Was a new show promoting and praising the rape and torture of children featured? No, something far, far worse was actually allowed on television last night.

Get ready for it: they actually ran a short ad on two stations daring to tell us that we should be concerned about the wellbeing of children. Yes, and the ad actually claimed that children need a mother and a father! Just how disgusting are some people!

This is absolutely shocking! Just what the heck is wrong with some people? How have we managed to get to such a place as this? Can’t we round up the makers of this ad and execute them? At least lock them away for life. How deplorable!

Imagine actually running an ad which says that heterosexual marriage is best for children! This is proof that society is now at a tipping point: actually standing up for the rights and welfare of children! How dare they! Lock up these sick perverts.

OK, by now you might realise that I have been using just a bit of satire here. The actual facts of the case are true: a pro-child, pro-family, and pro-marriage ad was run last night, but judging by the reactions of the lamestream media, you would have thought that the above scenarios in fact took place.

homo 2The media and our ruling elites are now so utterly obsessed with the homosexual agenda, that they will do anything the militants ask of them, and they will express hyper rage at anyone who dares not to bow the knee to these social engineers.

The moral inversion of society is now complete. What was once seen as disgusting and reprehensible is now held up as the greatest good ever, while what was once always seen as the obvious good for society, for family, and for children, is now viewed as the greatest evil imaginable.

This is everything and then some the prophet warned about millennia ago: “Woe to those who call good evil, and evil good.” (Isaiah 5:20). For simply standing up for children, our sodomised media are attacking the ad and those who made it.

Since when has the media started writing articles about ads that appear on TV? And those that simply want to protect children? Since when has that become some great evil that must be reported and condemned? And you can tell the slant they are taking from their headlines.

One report offered this headline: “Anti-marriage equality ad airs on TV”. Um no, it is not anti anything. It is pro-children, pro-family, and pro-marriage. Fake marriage is just that: fake marriage. There is no inequality here because marriage has always been about one man, one woman, and any children that result.

That is exactly why marriage exists: it is the world’s greatest pro-child institution. Now that the activists want to destroy marriage, they are destroying children as well. Yet the clowns in the media find nothing wrong with this, but they do think it is terrible that real marriage and the wellbeing of children are promoted and defended.

In this particular article (see link below) as much time is given to a homosexual activist as to the ad itself. Yet any time a pro-homosexual piece appears in the media today, nine times out of ten an alternative point of view is just not heard. And if it is, they will get just one line at the very bottom of the article.

That alone tells you how utterly homosexualised the entire mainstream media has become. Nothing critical of sodomy can ever be heard, and if it does get a hearing, it must be attacked mercilessly. But pro-sodomy stuff is fanatically and relentlessly being pushed every single day of the year.

Since the MSM is now fully in bed with the homosexual lobby, allow me to get some truth out into the public arena. Allow me to do the job the MSM refuses to do. The Australian Marriage Forum, which produced the ad, featured it during last night’s annual debauchery and perversion parade, the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

I will let them tell the story of this. Dr David van Gend, President of the AMF, begins a letter this way:

Dear AMF friends and supporters,
As you receive this email, the first television ad in our campaign, ‘Think of the Child’, is being broadcast in Sydney as the Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Parade gets underway. For those of you in New South Wales, tune in to the 6pm news on Channel 7 or 9. The Mardi Gras Parade is a political parade which has, as usual, a ‘Marriage Equality’ float. Our ad is a gentle but direct challenge to that deceptive slogan, pointing out that ‘marriage equality’ for adults always means inequality for kids. Here is the ad: youtu.be/s80wL5al5NA

Censorship by SBS
Our ad was also booked and paid for to be shown tomorrow night during the SBS delayed broadcast of the Parade – but only yesterday (Friday 6th March) our agent received this message from SBS management: “we choose not to run this TVC for the Marriage Forum during the Mardi Gras telecast.” No explanation. As I see it, this is a case of censorship by a public broadcaster of even the mildest expression of ‘unacceptable opinion’ on same-sex marriage. That is a disgrace, because:
-SBS is a publicly-funded broadcaster, paid for by people on both sides of the same-sex ‘marriage’ debate.
-They broadcast hours of the Mardi Gras protest rally, free of charge, with its ‘marriage equality’ float and other political themes.
-Now, they refuse to broadcast even one minute of a paid ad arguing the child-centred case against ‘marriage equality’.

He continues:

Time to fight back
The SBS censorship makes it even more vital that we SHARE the YouTube version of tonight’s TV ad far and wide, to prove they cannot silence the child-centred case against same-sex marriage. Also please watch and SHARE our ‘Think of the Child’ Campaign Promo, where I explain the motivation for our ads with passing mention of SBS (this was recorded prior to their last-minute pulling the plug): youtu.be/7tZzbfsTeYE

Well done David and the AMF for having the courage and the compassion to do this. To take on the might and the wrath of the homosexual militants and their MSM stooges takes real guts – and a lot of money. All their finances were raised by donations. And they hope to do more such ads. They need all the help we can give them.

Please view the two links above, and please get involved in supporting the AMF. Compared to the wealth, clout, reach and coercive power of the homosexualists and their media supporters, these tiny pro-family groups are completely outgunned, out-financed and out-everythinged.

They only thing they have going for them is truth. And as Alexander Solzhenitsyn once said, facing the might of the Communist Machine, “One word of truth shall outweigh the whole world.”

  • Thank you as always Bill. Voltaire said : “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” Prayers for you.

  • Good for them! Ignore the critics and I hope they can keep running the ads. Many people know instinctively the truth about marriage, and are just waiting for a short confirmation and encouragement about the uniqueness of the husband-wife relationship we have always called marriage, and the obvious truth that 2 men are not the same thing, nor are 2 women the same thing, as the unique union of husband and wife. It’s often a good sign when the devil gets angry at what you’re doing – it means you’re on the right track! Right on.

  • Some people are more equal than others.

  • Thank you so much to Dr David van Gend for having the courage and the ability to produce and screen (or try to) an ad that promotes the God given gift of marriage and the welfare of children.
    As you have often mentioned, anything that God decrees is under serious attack, first through mockery and ridicule and now as we have seen in other parts of the world from the ‘law.’ To use the full force of the state and the law against Bible believing Christians has always been very effective as far back as Roman times and the Middle Ages and will be their main objective. But, one of the saddest facts is that many Emerging, Liberal and other churches and so-called pastors (wolves) side with Satan.
    Thank you for this gleam of hope as we descend deeper and deeper into darkness. I would also like to thank Bill. Despite suffering ‘the slings and arrows’ you persist in declaring the truth.
    Does SBS have the right to refuse the ad or is this discrimination?

  • SBS must be challenged even if it through the courts otherwise this bias will get bolder and hard to turn around. There needs to be stronger MP in charge of media as Turnbull is too far left to care.

  • No idea how they work out ratings, but isn’t it time Australia turns its tv sets off at certain times of the day or the year? Best not to have one in the first place, a tv I mean since you can look for any news you want to on the net. Apparently the parade is now a platform for airing your “anti csg stand”. Must be that most voters are now parade watchers?
    I like your Solzhenitsyn quote and believe it is absolutely true.
    Good for us and bad for them 🙂
    Many blessings

  • “Mr Croome said children in the care of same-sex couples deserve the same opportunities as other children.”

    Well, duh! Thanks for making our point for us, Rodney.

  • Its good when honesty comes from the horse’s mouth.

  • It is outrageous that this girl was taken away from her adoptive parents – chickens. What about chicken rights?

  • But we now have a situation where, since marriage can be defined however one wishes , in democratic society, a person can have three different marriages at the same time.

    For instance a lesbian could be married to a man who simply impregnates her or gives his semen to her in syringe so that she can have children. There is no love here or close relationship
    Then she could also be married to a group of people who simply give her companionship and emotional support. No sex and no babies.

    Thirdly she could be married to someone just for the sex. No babies and no close personal attachment.

  • Surely this presents us with the stark choice.
    Either the well- being, dignity and respect for the vast majority of society is recognised through the democratic process , or we simply acknowledge that a tiny minority have the divine right to impose their tyrannical will on the rest of us.

    Listen. Peter Tatchell has already said at Word Pride 2012,

    “There are no borders or boundaries when it comes to Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender human rights. No nationality, no culture, no belief system can stand in the way of the historic quest for LGBT freedom,”

    What is that people do not understand about this? Or is that they think he is joking?

  • I’m angry about this seeing as SBS is 80% taxpayer funded. Please God may this little band of like-minded people on Bill’s blog take the time to let SBS know their displeasure: Contact SBS (Special Broadcasting Service Corporation):

    Phone: 1800 500 727 (toll free)
    Email: [email protected]
    Mail: Locked Bag 028, Crows Nest NSW 1585

    Remember that most people in corporations are gutless wonders because groupthink reigns. So as Christians let’s make these highly paid people uncomfortable by making a fuss about this.

  • David,

    Just today I responded somewhere to a man who wrote that an unborn child even in the last trimester of pregnancy was just a “potential” human. I informed him that a woman in her third trimester wasn’t pregnant with a kitten.

    Yet today’s press is all agog about the heartbeat of an unborn gorilla:
    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-03-08/heartbeat-of-unborn-baby-gorilla-heard-by-zoo-keepers/6289122

    You really have to shake your head sometimes, don’t you?

  • David, either those south Carolinians win or the West is doomed.

    I think (not hope) that the depraved media have underestimated the strength of Christians. Yes, we turn the other cheek – but like Johnny Cash – we won”t back down: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8i5NLyXZdc

  • From wikipedia: A study on short-term same-sex registered partnerships in Norway and Sweden found that divorce rates were 50-167% higher for same-sex couples than opposite-sex marriages, and that unions of lesbians are considerably less stable, or more subject to serious change, than unions of gay men. The authors cited that this may be due to same-sex couples “non-involvement in joint parenthood”, “lower exposure to normative pressure about the necessity of life-long unions” as well as differing motivations for getting married.
    Doesn’t sound like children caught up in this are winning.

  • I would like to know who decided that children no longer require a Father and a Mother? You hear a lot about the rights of gays to have children but nothing of the child’s right to a natural set of parents. How is a woman going to teach a boy how to be a boy or a Man teach a girl on how to be a girl? They bang on that its all about love, but it’s not only. Its about structure, discipline, role modeling among a host of other things. It’s true that some heterosexual couples should never have had or be allowed to have children, God help them. But just how screwed up will the children of same sex couples be? Probably well loved but not knowing if they are Arthur or Martha, Literately.

  • Well, Tony, lesbians would agree with you and are even prepared to go to extreme lengths to express the view that a child should have a daddy.

    http://www.iol.co.za/news/south-africa/lesbian-couple-guilty-of-gruesome-murder-1.270415#.VPxYZ_msVNg

    However, in contradiction to this, it is claimed by the lesbian, the very Rev Sharon Ferguson that research shows that it is better to have a mother than a daddy, so it’s commonsense that having two lesbian mothers gives a child double the dose of a mother’s love.

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/03/22/3-children-found-starving-1-chained-to-floor-in-california-home/

    Moreover the lovely Sharon claims that the research also shows that children brought up by lesbians are better behaved and more socially adjusted that children with a dad and mum.

    Well I suppose they would be if they had had the stuffing knocked out of them by lesbians.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00bqcs2

    Can anyone really imagine if grown men are steamrollered into silence by a female bruiser like this, what chance would a child have for expressing an opinion contrary to gay theology?

  • Will the censoring of Biblical understandings of authentic humanity by mass media entities eventually drive biblical Christianity in the West underground? How long will it be till Christians in the West find themselves “radicalised” by the anti-Christian elements of the societies in which they “live like citizens from another world”?

  • These children will be the next Stolen Generation.

  • Isn’t it astounding that the mandate for both SBS and the ABC clearly states that there should be no bias yet we have endured at least fifteen years of one sided broadcasting and promotion of SS”M”. The most that I have seen or heard of that has opposed their obvious agenda has been a few seconds on The Drum where Lyle Shelton was allowed a small say and the clear and obvious set up of Fred Nile who was essentially shouted down by an obviously stacked panel on Q&A and that is about it. When I made an official complaint about the ABC’s constant promotion of the false “marriage equality” slogan the official response from ACMA was that yes the use was somewhat “tendentious” but apparently that did not qualify as being biased. To balance their obvious bias we need fifteen years of telling the truth. How dare those in authority in the SBS and ABC and ACMA get away with this sort of constant, one-eyed political propaganda and lies. They obviously give people with this agenda orders of magnitude more air time than people with the opposing view – from Stephen Fry to the air time for the “Mardi gras” to the stacked panels on Q&A the push is constant. They need to be brought to account.

  • Dear Bill,

    Yes! and there was a silly woman on a Morning Show at the weekend blustering about the audacity of the ad for suggesting that children needed a father and a mother. She thinks that the ONLY thing children need is love and in her opinion same sex couples were just as capable of giving children as much love as they needed as a father and mother could.

    However, there is a glimmer of hope for the poor standard of Australian journalism when Andrew Bolt stated on the Bolt report yesterday that it is hypocritical to protest about human rights and the death penalty whilst staying silent about the killing of unborn children up to birth in Australia. It was a clear reference to Victoria’s draconian abortion laws drafted and supported by feminists like Julia Gillard

  • Rather than approach the topic through the “wellbeing of children”, it would be better to approach it from the point of view of the Bible. “The Word of God says that homosexuality is a sin and an abomination which leads to eternity in hell”. That is the only firm foothold. Once you step off this stand, you are on the same ground as the LGBT, trying to prove what is best. When we remove the argument from the Word of God and from the Name of God, it is ineffective and has no authority. The sword of the spirit is the “Word of God’ not good christian morals.

    This is a great movie which explores this topic. Here is the trailer. I recommend it.

  • Thanks Sharon. There is of course a time and a place for sharing biblical truth with non-biblical language. Had the makers of this pro-family ad just quoted Scripture, they likely would never have gotten it on to Channels 7 and 9. And since all truth is God’s truth, simply quoting the social science research on this issue can be quite effective as well.

  • Thank you Antonia, I just rang SBS and registered my disapproval of the ad being cancelled. All the woman said was that she would pass it onto the programme manager.
    Many blessings

  • Bill and friends in the comments column – this is an oasis of encouragement amidst the dust storm of the last few days. We are on track to reach our half-millionth view of the ad tomorrow! That is a lot of good seed – gentleness, beauty and truth – sown on the sometimes barren soil of our culture, a greater impact than we could have dreamed of. Our concern at Australian Marriage Forum is to give moral support to the great sensible middle of society, who know that a child should have a mum and a dad if at all possible; and that marriage can only ever be between man and woman, because that’s how it is in nature. Please help us make our planned next ad a reality, in the not too distant future, by chipping in at http://www.australianmarriage.org/donate

  • I wrote to SBS ‘comments’ this afternoon and this is the reply that I’ve just received.

    Dear Spencer,
    Thank you for contacting SBS.
    SBS reserves the right to determine what advertisements it broadcasts.
    Regardless, I have passed on your comments to our relevant departments as viewer feedback.
    Regards,
    SBS Audience Relations

    My response was:

    If SBS reserves the right to determine what advertisements it broadcasts (and that is reasonable to suggest), the time to discriminate/censor is when an attempt is made to book the advertisement. This was not done. This is deliberate censorship by a network that receives 80% of its funding from the public purse. Thank you for passing on my comments to the relevant departments, but your comment demonstrates the negative attitude towards the content of my email to you. I’ll be shocked beyond measure if SBS does anything further to apologise for what it did to the Australian Marriage Forum.

  • Bill,

    Thanks for your encouragement. The content of the email I sent to SBS I have edited mildly and sent to my local federal MP and to some Queensland federal senators, asking what they will do in Parliament and on my behalf to help remove this kind of censorship from SBS. I await their responses with baited breath.

  • David, John Holmes is very brave – is he still around?

  • Of course showing ads promoting marriage is a crime against humanity, but showing ads promoting adultery is a cause for diversity.

  • Dear Bill. Gay Activists are always spruiking that homosexuality occurs in nature, so these acts should be considered normal as far as humans are concerned. How do I intelligibly and eloquently argue against this?

  • Thanks Helen. That is easy enough to counter. A few quick points:
    -This is nowhere near as prevalent as the activists claim.
    -Even so, so what? We are not animals.
    -Animals sometimes also kill and/or eat their young – should we as well then?
    -Neither humans nor animals can continue to survive in homosexuality. Nature designed us to continue by heterosexual reproduction.
