HGTV On The Air Homophobes with a Pastor and Church of Also Homophobes




The HGTV "Fixer Upper" couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines, made headlines this week, after Buzzfeed published an article about the couple's church. The article accused Pastor Jimmy Seibert's church and possibly the HGTV personalities that attend it of being anti-gay. USA TODAY 
                                                                                            After the furor over HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines' membership in a church whose pastor who says that anyone who defines marriage as something other than one man and woman is wrong, the home-improvement network issued a statement in which it stands firm on its commitment to inclusive programming.
“We don’t discriminate against members of the LGBT community in any of our shows,” the network said.  “HGTV is proud to have a crystal clear, consistent record of including people from all walks of life in its series.”
On Wednesday, Buzzfeed published a story headlined, "Chip And Joanna Gaines’ Church Is Firmly Against Same-Sex Marriage." It expanded on an October piece from Curbed.com on the couple's hit show, Fixer Upper, in which Christian author Kate Henderson pondered what would happen if a gay couple applied to be on the program.
"My hope would be, if they are given that situation, they will just love on [the gay couple], but I would imagine that very conservative Christians in their audience might have a problem with that," she said. (USA TODAY searched the episode descriptions for the first three seasons and the Nov. 29 Season 4 premiere of Fixer Upper and found none that featured LGBT clients.)
The Gaineses, who reside in Waco, Texas, attend Antioch Community Church and are claimed as "dear friends" by their pastor, Jimmy Seibert, who, after the 2015 Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage, told his congregation that homosexuality is a sin.
"Why is it so important that we're clear on marriage — one man, one woman in a covenant — why is that such a big deal? Because it mirrors Christ and the church ... Paul said, 'When you defame marriage, you defame Jesus. You defame the picture of the glory of God on the Earth. Why is our marriage so important? Because when we do it well, it shows a picture of Jesus and his bride to the whole world. This is a clear biblical admonition. So if someone were to say marriage is defined in a different way, let me just say it this way, they are wrong." 
Seibert has also spoken in defense of the controversial practice of conversion therapy.
Although they have written about their faith in their memoir The Magnolia Story, neither of the Gaines nor their representatives have made it exactly clear what their own beliefs are on homosexuality or gay marriage.

The Gaines controversy comes two years after HGTV abandoned Flip It Forward, a series it was developing with brothers David and Jason Benham, following a Right Wing Watch report that David had protested at LGBT events and same-sex weddings, mosques and abortion clinics.
The brothers are the sons of Flip Benham, the leader of Operation Save America, the militant anti-abortion group formerly known as Operation Rescue. In 2011, a North Carolina jury found the elder Benham guilty of stalking an abortion doctor in the Charlotte area.
The largely hypothetical Buzzfeed story on the Gainses was criticized by several other outlets — Fox News's Dana Perino called it "activist journalism," and writing in the Washington PostBrandon Ambrosino, a married gay man, labeled it a "dangerous hit piece" whose "entire case is made by speculation and suggestion."
Ambrosino says the Buzzfeed piece essentially boils down to this: "Two popular celebrities might oppose same-sex marriage because the pastor of the church they go to opposes same-sex marriage, but I haven’t heard one way or the other." He adds, "I can’t imagine pitching that story to an editor and getting a green light, by the way.
Ambrosino cited another concern in the story: "It validates everything that President-elect Donald Trump’s supporters have been saying about the media: that some journalists — specifically younger ones at popular digital publications — will tell stories in certain deceitful, manipulative ways to take down conservatives."
“Stories such as this,” he warns, "will serve only to reinforce the growing chasm between the media and Trump, which means we are in for four agonizing, tedious years of 'gotcha” non-stories like this one."

Trevor Noah Schooled Tomi Lahren Why Her Anti Black Rhetoric Matters



 He was only kidding, what ever he is, he knows⬇😼



Normally on The Daily Show, Trevor Noah takes down hypocrisy and conservatives' misguided views from afar, but Wednesday night he had the opportunity to do so in person. That's because the "least woke, most awake person" in the country was finally a guest on Noah's show after the two traded video invites back and forth. She's Tomi Lahren, the anti-label millennial, conservative host of a show on The Blaze and viral Facebook videos that take on issues like Colin Kaepernick's protests and more. Don't miss Noah school Lahren on why her anti-Black Lives Matter rhetoric is plain wrong. But unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have sunk in with her.

If you've never heard of Lahren either, you probably should get familiar. Her inflammatory and sometimes racist rants against all things liberal, inclusive, or supportive of social justice have made her extremely popular with a certain segment of the population. That Kaepernick video in which she criticizes him for criticizing the country that protects his right to criticize went seriously viral — we're talking 66.6 million views. That kind of audience is scary when you consider her statements like "Black Lives Matters is the new KKK" and see her boiling anger over any social critique delivered by a minority (anger to her show is dancing to Ellen DeGeneres', according to Noah).


Lahren wouldn't say she's angry but rather "calling people on their sh*t," to paraphrase her view of the job. Thus it was lovely to see Noah do just that — especially around the Black Lives Matter movement that Lahren has been demonizing. "For somebody who is not racist, you have to spend a lot of time saying, ‘I’m not racist,'" Noah pointed out, and then he jumped right into the debate.



"What is so bad about Black Lives Matter?" Noah asked. Lahren said that it may have started with good intentions but now it has turned into rioting, looting, burning, and "militant actions." She's also not a fan of the "hands up, don't shoot" slogan which she called a "false narrative." Noah pointed out that "Black Lives Matter has never said go out and shoot people." And that one person's actions doesn't represent the whole movement, just as some KKK members support Trump doesn't mean that the Trump is in the KKK, Noah argued, repeating something Lahren has said herself.

On The Daily Show, Lahren wasn't connecting the dots. She continued to argue with him on this, broadly painting the whole movement as bad due to a few people's actions by saying, "These are more than just a few people." That was pretty much her whole argument, and she failed to accept Noah's logical conclusion then — using Lahren's warped logic — that because a few police are racist, it must mean that all officers are. The difference to her was a one-line answer about “the media emboldening.” 

Since that wasn't going anywhere, Noah asked Lahren what she wanted the world to know about her. Basically she would really like everyone to stop considering her racist, despite the racist things she says and arguments he makes. As she told Noah:

I wish that we could disagree with each other without thinking that we are bad people or ill-intentioned folks. So because I criticize a black person or I criticize the Black Lives Matter movement, that doesn’t mean I’m anti-black. It does not mean that I don’t like black people or that I am a racist, it means I’m criticizing a movement. I criticized Colin Kaepernick. That doesn't mean I don't believe in his First Amendment rights. It means that I believe in my First Amendment rights to criticize him.

She went on to argue that she's not racist because she's "never used racial slurs to address people," nor has she "looked down on" people of color. In fact, she said, "I don't see color," to which Noah had the best answer of the interview (immediately after the studio audience lost it in a mix of groans, laughs and boos directed at Lahren):

So what do you do at a traffic light? I don't believe in that at all when people say that. There is nothing wrong with seeing color. It is how you treat color that is more important.

Then he went on to criticize her more inflammatory talk — such as "Black Lives Matters is the new KKK." He argued that is wrong because one, the KKK still exists, and two, it minimizes what the KKK stood for and what the KKK did — "That is not the same," Noah added. "Surely you understand the incendiary feeling of your comments."

But her response showed that there was not going to be much headway, at least not today "What did the KKK do?" she asked, implying it was essentially the same as some looting and rioting. Again the audience lost it. So while Noah schooled her, she might not have passed the lesson.


Lahren has already responded to the interview and has claimed that she was edited unfairly. 

(adamfoxie)These bitches always complaining about how unfair people are to their rights except when they put many of ours out.

Game of Thrones } A Gay Man in Westeros

Renly and Brienne
Gethin Anthony wasn’t given the easiest of roles to play on Game of Thrones: a gay man in Westeros. The world of the show is far from the most accepting place in fiction. Women, homosexuals, bastards, and other groups are all put at a disadvantage, and King Renly Baratheon had to step carefully.
We’ve complained before about the portrayal of homosexuality on Game of Thrones, although usually in terms of how Loras Tyrell was reduced to a caricature of the man we knew in the books. But when it comes to Renly, there was something of a beauty to the way the “love that dares not speak its name” in Westeros was allowed to flourish on screen. In a recent interview, Anthony said that this was a deliberate choice.
Speaking to Attitude, Anthony reflects on his time with the show and says that he wanted to make sure there were positive portrayals of relationships in the brutish world of Westeros, where marriages are more like alliances, and many love affairs are unhealthy.

Westeros is a very scary world, with all the politics and violence going on, so it was nice to play an affectionate gay couple within that world. We were very passionate about it being a positive thing. I still hold on to that and I’m still very proud of it.
It was certainly a change from the books, where no one ever says outright that Loras or Renly are lovers. In fact, there are precious few references to anyone outside their immediate families even realizing they are gay. (At one point, Cersei even accuses Margaery and Loras of incest, oblivious that Margaery might not be his type.)
But the show’s choice to make them far more out afforded it a chance to to deepen their relationship. And Anthony sees it as a net positive for on screen LBGT relationships.
I got some lovely letters. One that sticks out was from a gentleman who was about to propose, or has perhaps just proposed, to his partner. He said some really nice things about seeing a gay relationship on television. Whenever people connect to things you’re involved with or a story you’re telling, it’s a lovely thing

CNN Contributor Comes out Wishes her daughter would be Gay too



                                                                                 
                                                                      

Sally Kohn, a CNN contributor and progressive activist, says she hopes her 6-year-old daughter will turn out to be gay.
Kohn, who has previously described herself as a “butch lesbian,” copped to the preference in an opinion piece for the Washington Post.

“I’m gay. And I want my kid to be gay, too,” wrote Kohn, who also contributes to The Daily Beast.
Kohn defended her position, arguing that it’s normal for parents to want their children to follow in their footsteps, whether it involves extracurricular activities, political outlook or sexual orientation.
“More often than not, we define happiness as some variation on our own lives, or at least the lives of our expectations. If we went to college, we want our kids to go to college. If we like sports, we want our kids to like sports. If we vote Democrat, of course we want our kids to vote Democrat,” wrote Kohn, who lives with her partner Sarah Hansen and their daughter Willa Hansen-Kohn in the “liberal bubble of Park Slope, Brooklyn.”



Kohn made it clear in the essay that though she ultimately wants her daughter to be happy whatever her sexual orientation, she plans to do everything she can to encourage her daughter to avoid adhering to gender norms.
“When my daughter plays house with her stuffed koala bears as the mom and dad, we gently remind her that they could be a dad and dad. Sometimes she changes her narrative. Sometimes she doesn’t. It’s her choice,” Kohn wrote.
The activist highlighted her dilemma with a story about how her daughter recently developed a crush on an older boy who rides her school bus.
“Time will tell, but so far, it doesn’t look like my 6-year-old daughter is gay. In fact, she’s boy crazy. It seems early to me, but I’m trying to be supportive,” Kohn exclaimed.
When Kohn’s daughter said she wanted to buy the boy presents and a card, the essayist asked another student’s mother for advice on what to do.
“Bet it wouldn’t bother you so much if her crush was on a girl,” the mother told Kohn.
“She was right,” Kohn wrote. “I’m a slightly overbearing pro-gay gay mom. But I’m going to support my daughter, whatever choices she makes.”
Kohn has displayed a penchant for making controversial statements.
In an essay for CNN last summer, she argued that using the word “illegal” to describe undocumented immigrants was like calling an African-American “the n-word.”
An in an essay at The New York Times last month, which Kohn advertised on her website as “Butch Lesbian Mom Takes Daughter To Princess Makeover,” the pundit lamented that her daughter gravitates towards dolls and dresses rather than jeans and sports.
“Even in the midst of our hyper-liberal and hyper-diverse neighborhood with girls and boys of all kinds on display every day, it happened,” Kohn wrote. “Did I do something wrong? Is feminism mysteriously skipping a generation? Meanwhile, I have to bribe her to wear jeans.”

Why No Gay Sex in Game of Thrones? Writer says “This is not a democracy” Certainly Not A Gay one





George RR Martin

everyone wants to see them.' Photograph: Murdo Macleod for the Guardian
There is plenty of bloody, ruthless violence in George RR Martin's novels, and lots and lots of sex – but why is there more explicit gay and bisexual sex on display in the Game of Thrones TV adaptation than in his books? The question was asked as Martin addressed an audience at theEdinburgh international book festival on Monday night – why do his A Song of Ice and Fire novels only hint at the subject?

 Martin, who has two more in the series to publish, said he would put it in if it lent itself to the plot. He said the books are narrated through his "viewpoint" characters, so he was more limited than the TV shows. "Frankly, it is the way I prefer to write fiction because that is the way all of us experience life. You're seeing me from your viewpoint, you're not seeing what someone over here is seeing.
Because none of the viewpoint characters are gay, there are no explicit gay sex scenes in the early books. "A television show doesn't have those limitations," he said. "Will that change? It might. I've had letters from fans who want me to present particularly an explicit male sex scene – most of the letters come from women."
But he added: "I'm not going to do it just for the sake of doing it. If the plot lends itself to that, if one of my viewpoint characters is in a situation, then I'm not going to shy away from it, but you can't just insert things because everyone wants to see them.
"It is not a democracy. If it was a democracy, then Joffrey [the sadistic boy king] would have died much earlier than he did."
Martin was one of the star names at the book festival, staged in association with the Guardian. His books are global bestsellers and adored by his fans, but he admitted there was still a kind of literary prejudice against his type of fantasy fiction. "I've been aware of this since I was a kid and I take heart with the fact that it is changing.
"When I was 12 or 13, I had teachers take away science fiction books by [Robert A] Heinlein and [Isaac] Asimov and say: 'You're a smart kid, you get good grades. Why are you reading this trash? They rot your mind. You should be reading Silas Marner.' If I'd been reading Silas Marner, I probably would have stopped reading."
The prejudice against sci-fi and fantasy is still there, but is not what it was. "These things are breaking down. It is an artificial distinction anyway – literary fiction in its present form is a genre itself."
The event in Edinburgh sold out quickly and the queue for book signings quickly became one of the longest the festival is likely to see.
But it had not always been the case, Martin said. A writer's real enemy is obscurity, and he had been there, sitting behind huge piles of books in shopping malls waiting for people to come only for them to ask where the cookery books were.
Martin was relaxed, cheerful and funny – there was no repeat of himreplying "Fuck you" to questions about his health.
He conceded that internet speculation and conspiracy theories abound about how the story will unravel – but that did not influence him, even though he had been dropping clues along the way. "I've been planting all these clues that the butler did it, then you're halfway through a series and suddenly thousands of people have figured out that the butler did it, and then you say the chambermaid did it? No, you can't do that."
He said he had been coming to Scotland since 1981, the year he visited Hadrian's wall, which later inspired the much bigger wall in his novels. "I remember standing there on a cold October day – not quite as cold and grey as today – and I stood on that wall and stared off into Scotland, or what was Scotland, and tried to think what it was like to be a Roman legionnaire … at the end of the world. It was a profound feeling. But fantasy is always bigger, so when I wrote the books, I made the wall 100 times as high and a lot longer."
He said to the Scots in the room: "You should build a gigantic wall. It would become a tourist attraction, and then you can keep the English out!”

Attorneys Olson and Bois Promote Gaya Marriage Documentary at Sundance


David Boies and Ted Olson, Proposition 8 Plaintiff Attorneys; & Ben Tracy, CBS News Correspondent; Screen Cap From 27 June 2013 Edition of CBS This Morning | NewsBusters.orgAttorney Ted Olson, who argued for same-sex "marriage" at the Court, "This was a big win, but not a complete win. So what is next?" The journalist then played his sole clip from a traditional marriage supporter, National Organization for Marriage chairman John Eastman. But he followed this with his profile of the impromptu ring ceremony between two homosexual men.

 Attorneys Ted Olson and David Boies once argued the Bush v. Gore case in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, but they say fighting California's law prohibiting same-sex marriage is the most significant thing they've done.
The two courtroom veterans fought on opposite sides of the case that determined the 2000 presidential election, yet they joined forces to defeat California's 2008 gay-marriage ban, Proposition 8. Their five-year effort is documented in "The Case Against 8," which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
The film follows the attorneys and plaintiffs in the lawsuit that resulted in the marriage ban being overturned last year.
"This is the most important thing I've ever done, as an attorney or a person," Olson says in the film, which won a directing award at the festival Saturday for filmmakers Ben Cotner and Ryan White.
Cotner, 34, and White, 32, gained access to the attorneys and plaintiffs in the case when the American Foundation for Equal Rights first filed its lawsuit in 2009. The film chronicles the case as the legal team and the two gay couples named as plaintiffs in the suit take it through California state courts and then to the U.S. Supreme Court.
"That's the luckiest job you could have as a filmmaker and a gay person," White said.
Olson and Boies said seeing their landmark case in the form of a film "was a really wonderful experience."
"Most of our cases involve a plaintiff and a defendant and a winner and that's it — although Bush vs. Gore was a little different," Olson said. "This involves tens of thousands of people in California, but really millions of people throughout the United States and beyond that to the world."
He and Boies have been deeply moved by their involvement with the case and the "seismic shift" in legislation and public opinion that followed. When they began arguing against proposition 8, only three states permitted same-sex marriage. Now it's 17, Olson said.
"There's been a remarkable transformation, and for us to have been a part of that is really extraordinary," he said.
"For all of us," Boies added, "it's probably the most important case, both in terms of the impact on the law and the impact on people."
"It really doesn't, as a lawyer, get more fulfilling," said Ted Boutrous, who also served on the legal team challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 8. "(It) just doesn't happen in that many cases where people around the country thank you and hug you."
The film is set to air on HBO in June, but the filmmakers plan to spend the next six months hosting grass-roots screenings and bringing the film to festivals around the country. They hope Olson — who represented the Republicans in the 2000 case — will draw more conservative viewers to take a look.
"One of the things he says in the film is marriage is a conservative value," Cotner said. "The fact that he's such a prominent conservative figure will hopefully pique people's curiosity about the film that otherwise might not be interested in a gay marriage film."
Said Olson: "Everybody who sees this film is going to be affected by it."
Meanwhile, the attorneys enjoyed feeling like celebrities during their week at the Sundance festival.
"Everybody's been very nice to us," said Boutrous, "even though we're lawyers."

HBO Prepares to Make Documentary on Prop 8


HBO/Prop 8
 HBO Network said Tuesday that it has begun production on a telefilm focusing on the landmark Supreme Court case that overturned Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage.
Over the past five years, directors Ben Cotner andRyan White have had exclusive access to the legal team led by conservative Ted Olson and liberal David Boies as well as the lives of the four plaintiffs in the case.
The untitled feature will be completed by year's end for a 2014 debut. 
"The story of the battle to overturn Prop 8 is the story of a modern-day American revolution,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said. “HBO is proud to present what is intended to be the film of record on this landmark case.”
The lawsuit against Prop 8 was backed by the American Foundation for Equal Rights on behalf of couples Kris Perry and Sandy Stier and Jeffrey Zarillo and Paul Katami. The documentary will tell the story of the people behind the case and their respective journeys to secure marriage equality in California -- and for all Americans.
The Supreme Court invalidated Prop 8 on June 26, handing a major victory to same-sex couples in California. A majority of justices ruled that the petitioner in the case lacked standing and invalidated the anti-gay marriage legislation, clearing the way for same-sex marriages to resume in the state.
“I’ve always said that the best evidence in this case is to hear our clients tell their stories," Olson said. "Paul, Jeff, Kris and Sandy have been brave enough to share their lives with the courts and now with the world. As Ben and Ryan tell this incredible story -- that for me was the most important case I’ve ever worked on -- people will inevitably be moved by getting to know these amazing individuals.” 
Cotner is senior vp acquisitions at Open Road Films; White's credits include featuresPelada and Good Ol' Freda, which will bow in September.
Josh Braun of Submarine Entertainment and Victoria Cook of Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz negotiated the deal with HBO.           Lesley.Goldberg@THR.com

Nurse Jackie, Don’t Go!!..I need MINE Pills

Nurse JackieMy heart is broken one more time. Just as fall in love with a series and it goes out just when is become a big success and out it they go. Yet there stupid series that had their day decades ago and they are they are still looking at me in face.
After four seasons Nurse Jackie showrunners, creators and executive producers Linda Wallem (pictured left) and Liz Brixius (right) are stepping down from Showtime’s darkly funny Edie Falco starrer about a prescription-drug addicted New York nurse, according to Deadline.
Wallem and Brixius -- out lesbians who were once a couple--cite traveling between their homes in Los Angeles to New York, where the show is shot, as part of the reasoning behind moving on from the critically-acclaimed show, reports Deadline.
A TV veteran Wallem was a writer on Cybill, executive producer on That ‘70s Show and a co-executive producer on Lisa Kudrow’s short-lived critical darling The Comeback. These days Wallem is also busy being Melissa Etheridge’s partner, and therefore a mom to four step-kids. She tells Deadline she’d like to spend more time with the kids.
“This has been the best job of my life, but the travel, having to spend six months (in LA) and six months (in NY) and be away from home, took a toll on me,” Wallem says.  “I have four stepkids, and I would miss all of the family stuff.”
A Third of the way into its fourth season Nurse Jackie’s ratings are holding high, which means their could be a 5thseason. Showtime is looking to bring on a new showrunner to work with star and executive producer Falco, reports Deadline.
With Nurse Jackie’s fourth season wrapped Wallem is looking for TV jobs closer to home while “doing carpooling and making lunches” for her stepkids, she tells Deadline.

$123. for Cable n 2015 and Climbing up } Unsustainable

TV Evolution Image Gallery

By Eve Tahmincioglu

If you're one of those people who complain that there’s nothing to watch on TV today even though you have a gazillion channels, you’re not going to be happy with this news – turns out, you’re paying more for cable.
The monthly rate for pay TV has been rising at an average of 6 percent annually and hit $86 a month last year for basic pay and premium-channel TV, according to a reported released Tuesday by market research firm The NPD Group. The uptick in licensing fees - which are the fees cable and satellite providers pay for programs - is driving much of the increase, at a time when consumer household income has hardly budged.

At this rate, NDP estimates consumers will be paying an average of $123 a month in 2015 and $200 a month by 2020.
The study was based on a quarterly electronic survey of 1,000 U.S. households.
Not surprisingly, the rising costs are making many consumers pull the plug on premium television. Today, there are five million fewer U.S. households viewing pay-TV services due to the mortgage crisis, the NDP research found, adding that those who did cancel service were prompted to do so because of economic reasons. But overall, the number of pay-TV subscribers has not declined substantially because of “bulk-service pay-TV contracts with apartment complexes and homeowners’ associations that have allowed pay-TV operators to retain subscriptions in vacant homes,” the study said.
Among the pay-TV cord cutters, most are still viewing their favorite shows via free Internet TV, traditional free broadcasting, and video-on-demand services such as Netflix, NDP reported.
The growth of lower-cost options, as well as cash-strapped consumers, is the reason the total number of subscribers of paid TV dropped to 100.9 million in the second quarter of last year, compared to 101.4 million in the first quarter, according to a IHS Screen Digest report released in September.
“As pay-TV costs rise and consumers’ spending power stays flat, the traditional affiliate-fee business model for pay-TV companies appears to be unsustainable in the long term,” said Keith Nissen, research director for NDP. “Much needed structural changes to the pay-TV industry will not happen quickly or easily; however, the emerging competition between S-VOD (subscription video-on-demand) and premium-TV suppliers might be the spark that ignites the necessary business-model transformation of the pay-TV industry.”
Indeed, something’s got to give: $200 a month for cable may end up getting some consumers pulling out their dusty old rabbit ears; that is, if they still work with digital TV.
