An anti-LGBT group claims that Fox News is promoting a new “pro-homosexual agenda” by moving Megyn Kelly to conservative Sean Hannity’s weekday slot.
America’s Survival, Inc. (ASI) has compiled a report entitled, “Unfair, Unbalanced and Afraid: Fox News’ Growing Pro-Homosexual Bias and the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association” which is basically trying to suggest that the conservative news channel is turning gay!
Megyn Kelly has been described as the ‘New Hero to the “Gay” Lobby’ by Peter LaBarbera who has prepared the seemingly interesting report.
Calling a Kelly a ‘rising star,’ LaBarbera says the Fox News host has emerged as a committed pro-"gay" advocate. She is a valuable media ally for homosexual and transgender activists, who routinely tout her on-air pro-LGBT advocacy.
In order to prove his point, LaBarbera cited an example from one of Megyn Kelly’s interviews. It was conducted conservative evangelical pastor:
“This country has a long history of discrimination against certain groups. Eventually we wind up getting it right. Right? Against women, against blacks, the civil rights movement and so on. And in justifying that discrimination when it was in place, some folks turn to the Bible and turn to their religious beliefs and said we have to have slavery because it’s in the Bible.”
“Women have to be second-class citizens because that’s in the Bible. Blacks and whites can’t get married because that’s in the Bible. That wound up in a case. A judge wrote that in an opinion, which the Supreme Court ultimately struck that down, saying, ‘That’s not right, judge — the Equal Protection clause says you can’t do that.’ Why is gay marriage any different?”
ASI’s official website stated that the organization’s president, Cliff Kincaid, who is a veteran journalist and media critic, said, in releasing the report, "Pushing Sean Hannity out of the 9:00 p.m. slot, to make way for pro-homosexual advocate Megyn Kelly, is another sign of the channel's left-ward drift and decline."
It’s quite interesting to see how moving Kelly’s slot has led to such an ‘astonishing’ report. Do you agree with Peter LaBarbera’s stance? Or do you think it’s absurd? You can share your views in the comments section below.
