The ABC Should Be Put Out Of Its Misery

Certainly one of the most unbalanced and biased programs ever shown on Australian television was aired on – you guessed – “our” ABC last night. It appeared on the ABC ‘religion’ program Compass, and was the most appalling attempt at “journalism” I have seen in quite some time.

But I have written about this program before. It is supposed to be a religious program but it instead does everything to push every religion but Christianity. When Christianity is featured, it is almost always attacked and/or trampled on as I have documented here: www.billmuehlenberg.com/2...%99s-war-on-christianity/

But last night’s program really took the cake. It was one of the most blatantly one-sided and bigoted programs to air on national television. Of course we expect this sort of behaviour from the secular left ABC, and it does this sort of thing all the time. But even by its own horrendous standards this had to hit a new low.

The program last night was about same-sex marriage. Simply putting these two together (‘ABC’ plus ‘same-sex marriage’) means you know exactly what the result will be. Unlike the poor bloke who put a million dollars on the Cats to beat Essendon the other week, only incredibly to lose, one could put a billion dollars on this outcome from the ABC and be guaranteed a sure win every single time.

The ABC will always push the homosexual agenda, as sure as day follows night. The place is on a special mission to force the homosexual agenda down the rest of our throats whether we like it or not. Why it does not change its name to the GayBC is beyond me.

It certainly is not the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. It refuses to properly represent the majority of Australians who are sick and tired of this tax-payer funded outfit pushing one radical activist agenda after another. It is clearly time for the ABC to come out of the closet.

Last night’s show was called “Marriage Right Vs Rite”. It featured the host, Geraldine Doogue, and six guests sitting around a dinner table discussing the arguments for and against same sex marriage in Australia. Well, that’s nice, you say; a nice range of views on a complex social topic.

But it wasn’t nice at all since there was no diversity of opinion here whatsoever. What we had was a hatchet job, plain and simple: one of the persons was against same-sex marriage while the other six were all effectively in favour of it. But surely the host was impartial, you say.

Sadly, the host is rarely impartial or neutral either on Compass or on any other ABC program, be it radio or TV. I have done dozens of these “debates” over the years on ABC radio and TV. Their idea of balance and fairness is to have me as the sole conservative voice, taking on 2, 3 or 4 people with the opposite point of view. And invariable the so-called moderator is not moderate in the least, but sides with my opponents.

The same here. Doogue is a left trendy, end of story, She in fact was seen at times laughing while the sole voice was trying to make his case. That sole voice was Anglican Bishop The Right Reverend Robert Forsyth. I repeat, he was the only one out of seven people to make the ‘no’ case on same-sex marriage.

So who were the other five? It is really quite incredible who they were. Were they disinterested moderates, or impartial observers? Were they run of the mill Australians or just ordinary folks providing a bit of the cross-section of Australia? Not on your life.

Every single one of them was a homosexual (or lesbian), or was just about100 per cent in favour of the homosexual cause. So who were they?

-Professor Dennis Altman, academic and renowned homosexual activist.

-Melbourne Baptist minister Reverend Nathan Nettleton, a long time supporter of the homosexual agenda – and an apostate from biblical Christianity.

-ABC broadcaster Julie McCrossin, a lesbian activist.

-“Dad” Geoff Thomas, a homosexual rights activist who has a homosexual son.

-Catholic Jesuit priest Father Frank Brennan, known for his leftist views on most social issues.

There you have it folks: six to one. This is the ABC’s idea of a fair debate! So bold and brazen is the ABC in its despicable bias and imbalance that it can actually feature a show on a highly controversial topic like homosexual marriage, and only allow one voice to speak against it.

This is utterly detestable, and the ABC should be ashamed of itself. This is what passes for debate at the ABC? This is supposed to be an example of balanced journalism? This is supposed to be a fair and even-handed debate? These guys are pitiful. And we have to fund this blatant propaganda machine with our tax dollars.

Lest you think I am being unfair on at least one of the guests, Father Brennan, simply read for yourself what he said in the transcript (see my link below). He did hardly anything to properly represent the Catholic Church on this. For example, he said, “Now I say to Julie and Melissa, look I espouse your relationship. I not only tolerate it, I endorse it. I admit not every church person would endorse it. But I do endorse it.”

He also went all gushy about civil unions: “I remain of the view that the Blair government got it right in the United Kingdom six years ago with civil unions. I mean if it comes to pass, yes. I mean people like Julie and Melissa will feel that this is a better country to live in, and Geoff will be happy for his son. And I for one will say well that’s a good thing.”

Civil unions of course simply give the homosexuals activists 95 per cent of their demands, with nothing left over except the word “marriage”. A few Christian groups in Australia have also run with that incredibly nonsensical strategy, and it has been an appalling failure, and simply undermined the work of pro-family forces here.

So my point remains: we basically had another typical ABC “debate”: this time it was six against one. And of course one of those six was a “human interest story” – the father of a homosexual. This of course will offset any argument from the other side: simply present an emotional and teary personal story, and the debate is over.

The ABC knows this full well because it does it all the time. It always drags out someone to put a human face on the radical agenda they are seeking to make. But that is not unfair, some might claim. OK, let me call your bluff. Simply tell me how many times the ABC allows a personal interest story from the other side. Please provide me just one example.

Have they ever allowed a kid harmed by being raised in a homosexual household to come along and share his or her story? Have they ever allowed a former homosexual to come and share his or her experience? Nope – never. They never have and they never will. Why? Because they do not give a rip about fairness, truth or balance. They only care about pushing their radical agendas, and they will resort to any dirty trick in the book to succeed.

It really is time to put the ABC out of its misery. It represents no one but the usual radical activist groups. Given that we have to pay for it to keep it alive, it is well past time for it to give up the ghost. It is a joke and a sham.

PS: Can I suggest that every single one of you contact the ABC and complain forcefully – yet respectfully – about this blatant bigotry, bias and propaganda? Use this link to start with: www2b.abc.net.au/tmb/Clie....aspx?b=81&WT.svl=explore
