From: Press release from the American Family Association, (AFA) a Fundamentalist Christian anti-homosexual group, 1997-JAN-14

Anti-gay Fundamentalist Christian groups have been concerned at the portrayal of normal, gay and lesbian relationships on TV. When Rosanne kissed a lesbian on the Rosanne show, there was considerable outcry, even though the kiss was photographed from behind. But the Relativity show broke new ground during its episode on 1997-JAN-11. "...it was the lesbian scene, complete with caressing, nuzzling and passionate, open-mouthed kissing, that propelled network television where it has never gone before."

The AFA has condemned ABC television for allowing this show of affection on TV. To our knowledge, the AFA and other Fundamentalist Christian organizations have never condemned the media when it has shown gay or lesbian characters in criminal or deviant roles; but they do object vociferously when homosexuals are shown realistically, and when engaged in normal affectionate relationships. ABC television is owned by the Walt Disney Corporation which the AFA is boycotting because it promotes equality of treatment for gays and lesbians in its employment and theme park policies.

In addition to the kissing episode, the AFA is distressed that the same episode showed a married woman engaging in extra-marital sex and a heterosexual couple who are living together without being married. Tim Wildmon, the Vice President of the AFA said, "The television industry continues to push the homosexual agenda with increasing fervency, with regular homosexual characters, same-sex marriages, and now passionate lesbian kissing scenes. And they won't stop their assault on morality until American society cries 'Uncle!' and fully accepts the homosexual lifestyle as legitimate." [Although we see no "homosexual agenda" on the part of the entertainment industry, we certainly hope that they do not stop progressing in this area].
