Corrupted by Hollywood–and His Parents: Above is The Fosters star Hayden Byerly, who is 14 but plays a 13-year-old in a budding homosexual relationship with his best friend on the ABC Family sitcom.

“Both Brad [Bredeweg] and I are gay men and it felt very true to both of our early coming out experiences,” [Peter] Paige told [The]. “More than anything else, we felt responsibility to those kids and to our younger selves who didn’t see themselves reflected anywhere.”

“When people question the scene my response has been: ‘Everyone has a first kiss and you remember it. How old were you?’” Bredeweg added. “Ninety percent of people who have an answer come back and say, ‘I was 12, 13 and 14 years old,’ and I say, ‘Exactly. It was time to see this, time to put this up for the world.’” — The Fosters co-creators Peter Paige and Brad Bredeweg, positing a moral equivalence between homosexual behavior and normal heterosexuality, quoted in “ABC Family’s ‘The Fosters’ Creators Defend 13-Year-Old Gay Male Kiss: Watch Before Judging”

ABC Against the Family:  AFTAH has blocked the homosexual kiss above from a recent episode of ABC Family’s “The Fosters.” The characters, Jude and Connor, are 13-year-olds, and are in the 7th grade.

Dear AFTAH Readers,

The ongoing entertainment media’s corruption of children and youth took another devilish leap recently with the youngest ever homosexual kiss on a TV show, ABC Family’s “The Fosters.” ABC Family is wholly owned by Disney/ABC.

Social “progressives” are destroying morality in this country. We are in big, big trouble because their God-defying sexual revolution has advanced much farther than most pro-family advocates are willing to admit. Just a few years ago, I was writing about how liberal, outwardly pro-“gay” journalists were squeamish about putting photos of homosexuals kissing prominently on a newspaper page. Now ABC “Family” is showing young teenage boys making out–yet where is the national outrage?

In the last few weeks I have been trying to wrap my mind around the escalating evil surrounding the promotion of the LGBTQueer agenda in America, which now includes powerful Hollywood “gay” activists directly promoting and celebrating immoral homo-sexual behavior to young boys.

AFTAH is breaking its rule against showing indecent homosexual kisses by including a short YouTube video of The Fosters’ kiss and the best-friends-falling-in-love plot leading up to it; go to the end of the piece HERE; or you can view it on YouTube HERE.

The Fosters has always had a socially left agenda: the main character, Jude, is adopted into a lesbian-led household. The show has dropped various hints about the “Jude” chacter’s sexuality (he once tried on his mom’s dress)–and has been building up to the perverted “boy-kiss.”

I fully get it that Hollywood couldn’t care less about Scripture, but I’m going to write this anyway: Christ Jesus warned that anyone who causes children to sin–“it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown in the sea.” Strong words. But in Hollywood, GLAAD matters more than God, so this corruption of boys is being celebrated. Here’s the post on The Fosters’ boy-kiss by GLAAD–formerly the “Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation”–on their website.

I have to believe that despite all the Political Correctness and ubiquitous “gay” propaganda, the vast majority of parents in the United States still would be appalled at the idea of modeling homosexual behavior to their teenage boys and girls during primetime TV. In “progressive” circles, it is a different story: homosexuals like Brad Bredeweg and Peter Paige [see quote above] are desperate to validate their own sinful life choices–and apparently too self-absorbed to see the irresponsibility of guiding boys into acting out homo-sexually.

It is bad enough if grown men embrace homosexual perversion; it is quite another thing to model it to young teens.

Social liberals seem to care little about that and have gone ga-ga at the idea of treating youth homosexuality like boy-girl romances: just watch these online “AfterBuzz” commentators gush over the “Jonnor” (Jude and Connor) kiss.

Homosexual gossip blogger Perez Hilton loved The Fosters' boy-on-boy kiss.

Modeling immorality

We are in a Brave New ‘Gay’ World in which networks like ABC Family are saturating America’s TV screens with pro-homosexual propaganda aimed directly at young teens. Aberrant sex is marketed as a social good–with noble-sounding euphemisms like equality, diversity and love. In reality it’s just sin, sold with sophistication, but in this case it is targeting teenagers, who are not exactly known for their maturity and judgment.

Hollywood elites now treat homosexuality like an ethnicity, rather than the destructive, unnatural behavior that it is. God’s revealed law for human conduct is out. Homosexuality and gender rebellion are in. Obviously, this is a generational thing: young people are being effectively brainwashed–through non-exposure to critical information–into thinking that homosexuality is natural, when it is anything but. And liberals in all areas of society have succeeded in implanting in the American mind that “being gay” is “who people are”–as opposed to homosexuality being about immoral conduct and lifestyles that can be changed.

Like all faithful Christians, we at AFTAH reject the new godless “morality” and all efforts to impose it on society and impressionable youth. My friend Stephen Black–a former homosexual himself who is active with two ex-“gay” groups, Restored Hope Network and First Stone Ministries– is correct: The Fosters’ perverted kiss is a form of recruitment of young people into the LGBT movement. Call it digital recruitment, and it is evil.

ABC Family is helping to give parents one more thing to worry about: whether their kid and his/her “best (same-sex) friend” will get sexual!

Love is love?

Young people are told glibly that “love is love,” and that all love is “equal”–as such mindless mantras go. But the facts don’t bear them out. Homosexual “love”–i.e., “gay” sodomies–cannot produce life. Period. And why are so many STDs linked disproportionately to Men having Sex with other Men (MSM)? How many men who embrace homosexual lifestyles have to die young for us to see that God is right and Western liberals are wrong on homosexuality? (According to this CDC report, “approximately 658,507 people in the United States with an AIDS diagnosis have died overall,” and “In 2010, white MSM continued to account for the largest number of new HIV infections (11,200), by transmission category, followed closely by black MSM (10,600).”)

It is time for ABC Family to change its name since the “progressive” side of their programming–like “The Fosters”–is inimical to genuine, wholesome family values. Note the troubling quotations above by the show’s two homosexual creators–Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg–who are corrupting young boys in part to justify their own bad sexual choices.

Modern liberalism is morally depraved: more accolades for the “Jonnor kiss”

FALSE MORAL EQUIVALENCE: “The Fosters'” co-creator Bradley Bredeweg, an open homosexual, wanted to model a “first kiss” for young homosexual boys to match the “first kisses” on TV between a boy and a girl..

In our Isaiah 5:20 society (calling evil good and good evil), modeling destructive, unnatural and wrong behaviors to young teenage boys and girls in the name of “gay” equality and social justice actually fuels social liberals’ sense of moral superiority. All organized opposition to it is dismissed as “hate” (how convenient), and God is utterly out of the picture.

Here’s an excerpt from a piece in the liberal Daily Beast extolling the The Fosters’ “History Making Gay Kiss” as “setting a fantastic standard”:

“The kiss between Jude and Connor isn’t a first in the world of television teenagers. When endgame Blaine and Kurt kissed for the first time on Glee, it wasn’t even the first time the show displayed some same-sex lip-locking. And Teen Wolf has featured some steamy same-sex scenes between the students at Beacon Hills High School.

“But Jude and Connor are in the 7th grade (their actors are 14 and 15 respectively), a good few years younger than their Glee and Teen Wolf counterparts. According to a 2013 Pew Research Center survey of LGBT Americans, 12 is the median age at which members of the community first felt they might not be straight, and gay men reported that at around age 10 they first thought that they might be gay. It’s inspiring to see that young characters on television are matching reality. Jude and Connor’s nervousness—capturing the nuances of a young friendship—turning to something more is teen naturalism at its finest, and in some ways more so than the passionate sex scenes that LGBTQ characters are chalking up in pop culture nowadays.

“The Fosters is already lauded as one of the most progressive shows on TV, with the heads of household being an interracial lesbian couple raising a family of biological, foster, and adopted kin. With the kiss on The Fosters setting a fantastic standard, we’re inching toward more accurate representation of LGBTQ youth in entertainment. It reassures all the real-life Judes and Connors out there that their feelings of self-discovery during those middle school and junior high years are valid, while also providing a heartrending example for those who don’t endure this to understand and learn from.”

The media accolades keep rolling in for The Fosters and what is being called in social media the “Jonnor” (Jude & Connor) kiss. Homosexual gossip blogger Perez Hilton gushed that the boy-on-boy kiss was “revolutionary” (it was). Hilton is also right about this:

“We already know that what people see on TV affects their hearts and minds; Joe Biden has specifically credited Will & Grace with the great strides in marriage equality over the past decade.”

Now how do we who defend the natural and normal–and God-given–sexual ethic respond? One thing is clear: retreating to a defensive posture of focusing mainly or solely on “religious liberty” is not the answer to the crisis wrought by the growth of homosexualist power in our culture. We need to explain to children WHY homosexual behavior is always wrong; what is God’s plan for sex and marriage; why same-sex “love” (feelings) must not be indulged to preserve virtue; how ex-“gays” have overcome homosexuality in their lives; and the physical destruction of same-sex acts.  — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

PS. What kind of parents would let their underage, acting sons engage in this behavior?

Christian News Network reports:

ABC Family’s ‘The Fosters’ Generates Controversy Over TV’s First-Ever Kiss Between Teen Boys

March 5, 2015 | Christian News Network

Monday night’s episode of “The Fosters” on ABC Family, a sitcom created by two homosexual men, is generating controversy after two of its teenage male actors kissed each other on screen in an episode about same-sex feelings among youth—the first-ever depiction of its kind on American television.

The sitcom, created by Peter Paige and Bradley Bredeweg, and produced by actor Jennifer Lopez’s production company, Nuyorican, centers around two lesbians who raise both foster children and biological children together. In Monday night’s episode, characters Jude and Connor, played by Hayden Byerly, 14, and Gavin MacIntosh, 15, kiss each other as they realize that their relationship has developed into more than just friendship.

Paige and Bredeweg told The Wrap that they had planned the scene for some time, but thought that they should hold off on it until the second season. They stated that since they both identify as homosexuals, the scene both reflects their young “coming out” and serves to connect with young viewers who also experience homosexual feelings.

“Both Brad and I are gay men and it felt very true to both of our early coming out experiences,” Paige told the publication. “More than anything else, we felt responsibility to those kids and to our younger selves who didn’t see themselves reflected anywhere.”

“When people question the scene my response has been: ‘Everyone has a first kiss and you remember it. How old were you?’” Bredeweg added. “Ninety percent of people who have an answer come back and say, ‘I was 12, 13 and 14 years old,’ and I say, ‘Exactly. It was time to see this, time to put this up for the world.’”

The creators also noted that they sat down with Byerly and MacIntosh’s parents before moving forward with the scene, and that they were “supportive” and “understood what we are trying to do.”

But not everyone is supportive of the episode. Social media blew up this week on both sides of the issue, with some applauding the scene and others expressing concern.-  C“I can’t find the words to describe how evil this is–marketing sexual perversion to teens and pre-teens and in the process requiring these underage actors to act out homosexually,” Peter LaBarbera, President of Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) told Christian News Network. “This glamorization of a behavior that God calls ‘detestable’ is sickening–and it is destroying our nation because a nation that celebrates sin.”

He said that many parents will not agree with the creators’ motivation behind the broadcast.

“This whole immoral story line comes down to the need of ‘The Fosters’ homosexual creators to rationalize their sinful ‘gay’ lifestyle. Their perverse supposition is that this homosexual ‘first kiss’ is just like any other first kiss and so it deserves to be modeled to the nation,” LaBarbera stated. “The problem with that is that most parents are not buying this false moral equivalence. They don’t want their son spending too much time with girls—but they certainly don’t view him getting into a homosexual relationship with another boy as anything like that!”

He noted that homosexual behavior is increasingly being promoted in film and broadcast media.

“Now not only are Hollywood and the media ‘All Gay, All the Time,’ but they are pushing nonstop to normalize homosexual behavior to impressionable young people–even pre-teens,” LaBarbera said. “This is reckless and it will lead to more and more young people embracing destructive lifestyles that grieve the heart of our loving Creator.”

“If youth-corrupting propaganda like this doesn’t shake the Church into action, nothing will,” he stated. “Americans need to express their outrage to ABC Family for using their network to essentially teach and mainstream sexual perversion to a new and very young generation. We must not allow corporate America to corrupt our children with impunity.”
