Perkins Assails ABC For Having Chaz Bono In 'Dancing With The Stars'
Family Research Council president Tony Perkins used his daily Washington Watch radio alert to slam ABC for selecting Chaz Bono to appear on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars. Bono, a transgender man, said he hasn’t “been paying that much attention” to critics like Fox News and conservative activists who have attacked his selection. The American Family Association’s One Million Moms accused ABC of trying to “promote this destructive lifestyle” by selecting Bono and Carson Kressley, who is openly gay and best known for his role on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and urged members to contact ABC and demand that “these cast members are replaced”:
Email ABC Network and let them know that we will not tolerate these subjects being forced into our homes. DWTS airs 8/7 central when children are awake and Christian families will not enhance the ratings by watching the show when it returns September 19 unless this issue is taken care of and these cast members are replaced (Kressley was added last minute anyway because of another cast member's injury).
Today, Perkins slammed the network and advised parents not to watch DWTS, warning, “The indoctrination is in full swing.” He claimed that the show is working “to advertise for the radical Left” and has become “an hour-long political statement.” Perkins said:
Forget "Dancing with the Stars." ABC is dancing with the transgenders. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. On the 13th season of Dancing with the Stars, the indoctrination is in full swing. This fall, ABC's picked its first transsexual to compete. Chaz Bono, the famous child of Sonny and Cher, may have been born a woman--but she'll be dancing as a man. And while the gay community approves, fans certainly don't. ABC's been blasted by thousands of viewers for turning a popular show into an hour-long political statement. The message boards are full of angry parents who think ABC's gone too far. One mom wrote, "I am not about to risk the potential for on screen dialogue about sex changes and gender confusion while my 7- and 9-year old are watching... We are NOT tolerant--[if tolerance means allowing] any influences to come unfiltered into our home..." I guess if "Dancing" wants to advertise for the radical Left, they'll find out how out of step they are!
