From the beginning, the producers of television have had an agenda. Even in the most “harmless” of shows, alternative lifestyles are being promoted. Consider, for example, “The Andy Griffith Show.” The show centers around a single parent who lives with his aunt. Admittedly, his wife supposedly died, and he is not divorced. However, we are still being desensitized to the idea of a single parent which is neither the norm nor God’s plan. The show also features a character, Gomer Pile, who is played by a man who is a homosexual in real life.
Consider the show “The Odd Couple” from the 1960’s. Aside from sinful content, we are being exposed to an alternative lifestyle of two men living together as roommates. Genesis 2:24 tells us God’s normal plan, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” Although neither man in the show is a homosexual, this show was obviously a forerunner of the sitcoms of today which feature homosexual characters.
Consider “The Brady Bunch.” The show is about a widowed man and a widowed woman who have three children each. Now they are married and have six children collectively. This is an extremely rare scenario but mirrors the very common scenario of divorce and remarriage. We are subliminally being exposed to the idea of stepparents and stepchildren which is far more common in divorced situations than in the rare circumstance of young widows.

Don't forget that incredibly sinful and evil Hogans Heroes. About a large group of men sharing an alternative lifestyle situation, whilst being disruptive and disobedient and doing it all the while not being on American soil.
How dare they they make television show that portrays more that just antiquated notions of misguided values held some 50, 60 odd years ago.

How about Laurel & Hardy - not only did they have wives in some of the movies, they often were living together - and sometimes were shown in bed together. And the one time they had children there were no women around and their kids looked like each other. (Stan's kid looked like Ollie, etc.)
Oooooh, the E V I L of Hollywood!

Well Andy was supposed to marry the first virgin he found. And Carol was supposed to kill herself when her husband died.
That's how I'm reading it.

So, everything living situation where the couple are:
virgins before they are married,
are only male and female,
only having sex in the missionary position,
only have sex once a week,
only having sex to reproduce,
is a not a sin.
I am leaving anything out?
Probably because the couple would have to be a particular type of Christian. Even then there are probably a whole bunch of rituals that have to be observed.
Bottom line, to avoid sinning, humanity should have gone extinct 2000 years ago.

What about the moral travesty that was Three's Company? I'd love to read what you have to say about that.

Widowhood now equals divorced? Well if this is so, god is the one who forced the situation, so let him/her deal with it.

That's very insensitive to people that have lost spouses. Such words must make Jesus very ashamed.

"The Brady Bunch? Really? The show that wouldn't even let you see the toilet in the bathroom?"
They wouldn't even TALK about the toilet. I remember one episode where one of the girls locked herself in the bathroom, and Greg pounded on the door saying, "You've been in there for almost an hour! There are a bunch of us out here who need to brush our teeth!

If Steve got Gomer and the Odd Couple, the betts of many a crude joke, he missed one of the more obvious. Sesame Street. Ernie and Bert, sharing a place. Never showing the slightest interest in girls, or even going to Mister Rogers' Neighborhood for Henrietta Pussycat or Lady Elaine Fairchild (when King Friday XIII isn't looking, of course.)

I wonder how Mr Anderson would react to "Classic" Doctor Who, circa seasons 19 -20..?
After all, you have 4 young (youngish in the Doctor's case) people, 2 men & 2 women, all unrelated, & living together.
I suspect his brain would explode...
3/9/2009 8:39:56 PM
Yes, I see how your logic works. Steven L. Anderson is a white American male, subliminally exposing us to the idea of people like Jeffrey Dahmer.
You might want to work on that a little bit more.

Micky Mouse with Morty & Ferdy
Donald Duck with Huey, Dewey and Louie
Raymond Burr was homosexual.

Consider the Andy Griffith Show(Why I watch it is anyone's guess): Gomer Pile was also a gospel singer.

Well, at least he got the PILE right in "Gomer Pile" (sic).
