Gay rights foe Matt Barber has called
Fox's Glee “radical homosexual promotion.”
Barber, the director of cultural
affairs at Liberty Counsel, a Christian-based group opposed to gay
rights, made his comments during Wednesday's episode of the group's
Faith and Freedom radio program.
Liberty Counsel has filed a brief
asking the Supreme Court to toughen decency standards on television.
The standards are important, Barber
argued, because otherwise children would be indoctrinated into being
gay through shows like Glee.
“I believe that this is by design,”
Barber said, suggesting a conspiracy. “That there are those who …
are using media, using television, using various forms of multimedia
in order to effect social engineering and cultural change. And if …
they can remove the barriers that we have had relative to morality
and these things from the airwaves, we know that entire cultures can
be changed and people are desensitized. We see programs like Glee
– this radical homosexual promotion. It's nothing but pure
indoctrination on television masquerading as entertainment. And
we've seen that children are watching this in droves and it is having
the effect of changing their viewpoints on all form of various
sexually immoral behaviors.” (The video is embedded in the right
