According to The Tribune of Thursday, September 27, 2007, the Bahamas Christian Council (BCC) has appointed a sub-committee to focus on fighting the "gay agenda".
Apparently the BCC was driven to appoint this committee after a group called the Rainbow Alliance asked Cable Bahamas to provide a gay television station.
It appears that the BCC is over reacting. A novelty station would obviously not be provided in the general subscription lineup. I would imagine that in order to access a channel like that one would have to pay an additional premium or fee. Of course there are lots of other stations to choose from, so one would not have to watch the gay pride parade or whatever else they do.
Not only that, I would think Cable Bahamas would have to justify the business case to offer any channel with limited viewership. And if is not a profitable proposition it won't be offered.
A quick flip through regular network programming one can't help but notice gays are present, just as they are in real life.
Furthermore, if one is inclined watch "gay" television in the privacy of their home, what does that have to do with the BCC or me for that matter?
Where is the BCC outrage at the garbage on the streets, molestation of children, crime, and our failing educational system et al?
