The Rampant Promotion of Homosexuality in Movies and Television
[Editor's Note: We are being inundated with a torrent of highly organized Leftist propaganda to accept the notion that homosexuality is normal, healthy, and merely another 'lifestyle' choice. If you characterize or reject homosexuality as the immoral, perverse, and degenerate behavior that it is, you are branded a bigoted and prejudiced 'homophobe,' akin to a 19th century slave owner, who doesn't realize that the 'battle for gay rights' is simply an issue of political rights and equality under the law, similar to women's sufferage or black emmancipation.
The promotion of homosexual behavior is part of the larger NWO agenda (see the Protocols of Sion & the Communist Manifesto) to decimate and dismantle the nuclear family unit (mother, father, and children bound together in physical and spiritual adhesion) and replace that family unit with a non-bound, androgenous society where marriage, monogamy, heterosexuality, and birth-parent child rearing are unnecessary burdens upon our 'liberty' to do whatever we want, with whomever we want, whenever we want, and suffer no societal or legal constraints upon that licentiousness (the attempt to create this sort of societal example began with the Nazis before and during World War II).
Children are the future of America. Do we simply sit back and allow their vulnerable and inexperienced minds to be molded and shaped and warped by those who would promote perversion as normal and healthy? Or do we take a stand and push back against every individual, institution and outlet that has been co-opted and coerced by Leftist propagandista and the 'homophobe' police?..Ken Adachi .]

The Rampant Promotion of Homosexuality in Movies and Television (Nov. 26, 2011)
Excerpted Interview with Pastor Joe Schimmel of Simi Valley, California
Pastor Joe Schimmel digs up the roots of gay activism
– June 27, 2011
I had the recent opportunity to review international Christian apologist Pastor Joe Schimmel’s expose’ called Satanism and Homosexual Agenda. Pastor Schimmel resides in Simi Valley, CA and has been in ministry over 25 years. In 1990, he founded and pastors Blessed Hope Chapel in Simi Valley and is president of Good Fight Ministries. His testimony of transforming power of Jesus Christ in his own life is told in the powerful documentary “They Sold Their Souls for Rock & Roll,” which has been heard during live presentations at churches around the world. In it, he describes his own deliverance from the bondage and satanic influence of Rock Music at age 18.
Pastor Joe: ...As Christians, we need distance ourselves from two extremes regarding homosexuality. One extreme is the “God hates fags” crowd, who treat homosexual behavior as the unforgivable sin. The other extreme to taking a cavalier attitude toward homosexuality, and fail to recognize that the scriptures teach that sexual sin is destructive in a way that other sins are not (1 Cor. 6:18).....
Shofarsound: That’s an interesting point you bring up about the “two extremes”. Given that, do you think it contributes to the increasing spread of homosexual influence in America?
Pastor Joe: That homosexuality is spreading throughout the United States is absolutely undeniable. Its rapid spread in America began with the expulsion of God’s Word and prayer from the government schools in the 1960s and the introduction of a steady diet of Darwinian indoctrination and moral relativism. Add to this the so-called “free love” movement espoused by godless atheists and occultists in the hippie revolution of the 1960s, and you have a volatile recipe for apostasy. It was at this time, like never before, that the moral compass of America began to be buried under an avalanche of liberal propaganda.
In the 70s the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses and it gained more and more approval in the academic world. Its spread slowed down precipitously with the advent of AIDS in the 80s but this trend was soon reversed after homosexuality began to be intensely advertised and glorified in mainstream media.
Shofarsound: You believe that homosexuality and satanism have a direct link. Tell me about that. Harry Hay
Pastor Joe: In my estimation that would be the most notorious Satanist of the last century, Aleister Crowley (1875-1947). [Crowley died just three years before organized homosexual activism took root in America]. Crowley stated that he had gone over to “Satan’s side” and wanted to become Satan’s chief of staff. Crowley was a bisexual, and his “Abbey of Thelema” or sex temple in Italy was found to have biographical graffiti, depicting orgies that included little children. We document this from his own admirers in our documentary, The Kinsey Syndrome. He influenced the sexual revolutionary thought processes of everyone from Alfred Kinsey to Harry Hay. It is important to know that Crowley’s end goal was the ushering in of the age of Horus and the coming Antichrist, the man of sin. He literally signed his name “The Beast 666.”
Shofarsound: What was Crowley’s purpose in partnering with the agenda of homosexual rights activists?
Pastor Joe: Crowley stated that he was out to “sodomize the boys of England,” and wanted his diabolical teachings to be “circulated among the young.” He later stated that he would target the USA to push his satanic agenda. We document that in our video “They Sold Their Souls for Rock and Roll” that Crowley’s teachings provided the social architecture for the counter culture revolution of the 60’s. We prove that many of the leading social revolutionaries and academics of that era, as well as a host of top rock stars, have done Crowley’s bidding and were, wittingly or unwittingly, major change agents.
Shofarsound: Crowley’s views certainly mirror those of homosexual activists we see in the spotlight today. How did he view the nuclear family?
Pastor Joe: Crowley not only stated that he had gone over to “Satan’s side” but proclaimed the family to be “public enemy number one.” His licentious motto was “Do What thou Wilt,” and he taught that the word “sin” is “restriction.” This kind of thinking will destroy both family and society, once it is embraced
Shofarsound: There’s hardly a TV show now that doesnt have a “well adjusted” homosexual character. Is this intentional?
Pastor Joe: That’s a great question. Tragically, almost anything that is treated favorably by Hollywood and mass media becomes infectious and catches on, even if it is deadly. Humans are very impressionable and easily led by the liberal media. Television shows and movies have been a powerful weapon in Satan’s arsenal to erode godly morals among the American populace.
Oprah Winfrey, who influences millions, promoted homosexuality when she made a cameo appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ “Coming Out” Episode. Since Oprah claims to be a Christian when in fact she is a new ager, she has duped God only knows how many biblically uninformed Christians on the issue.
Television shows that promote homosexuality are too numerous to list, but in the last couple of years shows like “Degrassi,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Pretty Little Liars,” and “Glee” are at the top of the list, when it comes to glamorizing the sin of homosexuality. Many of these TV shows receive awards from the homosexual organization GLAAD for their promotion of homosexual lifestyles. Wise parents will protect their children from being enticed by programming that is intended to program their little ones with gay propaganda.
In “The Overhauling of Straight America,” authors Kirk and Erastes Pill, advocate this strategy to propagate the gay agenda:
“Where we talk is important. The visual media, film and television, are plainly the most powerful image-makers in Western civilization. The average American household watches over seven hours of TV daily. Those hours open up a gateway into the private world of straights, through which a Trojan horse might be passed … So far, gay Hollywood has provided our best covert weapon in the battle to desensitize the mainstream” (Marshall K. Kirk and Erastes Pill, “The Overhauling of Straight America.” Guide Magazine, October and November 1987 [emphasis added].
Consider the following revealing stratagem from a popular manual, advocating homosexual propaganda, by Harvard trained gay activists Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen:
“… Famous historical figures are especially useful to us for two reasons: first, they are invariably dead as a doornail, hence in no position to deny the truth and sue for libel. Second, and more serious, the virtues and accomplishments that make these historic gay figures admirable cannot be gainsaid or dismissed by the public, since high school history textbooks have already set them in incontrovertible cement. By casting its violet spotlight on such revered heroes, in no time a skillful media campaign could have the gay community looking like the veritable fairy godmother to Western civilization” (Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen, After the Ball).
We can look at just two of the top movies that came out in the month of June 2011 to see how this propaganda works. The latest X-Men movie (X-Men: First Class) was number one at the box office and very few of the millions who viewed it, knew that they were being indoctrinated by a subversive gay propaganda film.
X-men films develop the theme of various X-men discovering their superpowers, as they struggle with their various mutations and societies reluctance to accept their “coming out,” with their superpowers. Unbelievably, some behind the X-Men movies want their audience to see X-Men as superheroes “coming out,” as analogous to gays coming out of the closet, and their superpowers, as analogous to homosexual lifestyles.
Gay X-Men screenwriter Dan Harris, who wrote the screenplay for X2 with gay screenwriter Michael Dougherty, admitted that he sees X-Men mutancy, and the X-Men’s struggle for acceptance in society, as corresponding to homosexuality:
“…. it’s become more a metaphor for sexual identity and orientation because it’s more appropriate to look at a person and have to say, ‘Are you a mutant?’…. you can’t always look at a person and know that they’re a mutant just like you can’t look at a person and know that they’re gay” (Filmfreakcentral.net critic Walter Chaw, X2).
Openly gay X-Men Director, Bryan Singer, has not only directed most of the X-Men movies but recruited openly gay activist actor Ian McKellen, to star as Magneto, by convincing him that mutants were comparable to struggling gays. McKellen stated “I think he expected that I was going to consider it a not posh-enough job,” but revealed that he was told that X-Men is really about Lesbain, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people. “I thought he was right,” says McKellen. “It’s not just a fantasy story. It’s a parable.” McKellen is a co-founder of the LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender] gay activist group Stonewall.
McKellen further stated “[The producers] will tell you one of the demographics that X-Men appeals to is young gays…. There are enough people in this world who think that the answer to the ‘problem’ of being gay is to be ‘cured’ of your abnormality.” Thus in McKellen’s mind, rather than view sex between two men as immoral behavior, why not portray it as positive genetic mutation, on the level of the fantastic powers of a superhero?
Homosexual William Earnest in his article “Making Gay Sense of X-Men,” admitted “Singer and his screenwriters equipped X-Men and X2 with the rhetorical stealth needed to fly below the gaydar of many critics and audience members.” [source] Ian McKellen
In the latest X-Men installment, when an X-Men who works for the US military is asked how he got away with being discovered through the years, he replies “Well, they didn’t ask, and I didn’t tell.” An obvious reference to the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy regarding homosexuality in the U.S. military. Thus the line is drawn from this X-men’s superpower to homosexuality, and Hollywood has gone a step further than simply legitimizing what billions of people deem to be sinful and destructive behavior, to glorifying it as something to be coveted like a cool superpower.
When we turn to Pirates of the Caribbean, which like X-Men, has been one of the most successful series of movies ever released, we see similar brainwashing. Johnny Depp admits that he read the book “Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition,” to prepare for his staring role as Captain Jack Sparrow.
Famous Film Reviewer, Robert Ebert wrote: “Depp seems to be channeling a drunken drag queen with his eyeliner and the way he minces ashore and slurs his dialogue ever so insouciantly.” When Rolling Stone asked Depp about the “certain gay undercurrent” so obvious in his Jack Sparrow’s character, Depp responded:
“Well, there was a great book I read…. ‘Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition.’ A very interesting book. I wasn’t exactly going for that with the character. And Keith [Richards] is not flamboyant in his actions. Keith is pretty stealth. But with Jack, it was more that I liked the idea of being ambiguous, of taking this character and making everything a little bit…. questionable. Because women were thought to be bad luck on ships. And these pirates would go out for years at a time. So, you know, there is the possibility that one thing might lead to another. You’re lonely. You have an extra ration of rum. ‘Cabin boy!’” (Rolling Stone, July 2006, p. 50).
Sadly, millions of parents had no idea that Depp had inculcated aspects of a homosexual pirate into his character. Children who are enticed by this character, are led to believe that since Captain Jack is portrayed as a hero, that wearing eye shadow and acting effeminate is the stuff heroes are made of today, unable to always discern the difference between fact and fiction. Gay activist Darrell Risk, in his article “Are Homosexual’s Born That Way?” acknowledges the infectious nature of homosexuality, when young people are exposed to it:
“I have found that even many of my most unbiased straight friends grow skittish with my homosexual candor—say, kissing my mate—when their children are around. Underneath it all, they too understand that sexually free ideas are infectious and that, once introduced to the suggestion of same sex love, their kids might just try it and like it” (Darrell Risk, ‘Born?’ p. 424).
In light of Darrell Risk’s admission that his own public sexual expression has the power to “infect” children who witness it, how much more are the purposely-seductive characters of Jack Sparrow, the X-Men and other Hollywood caricatures and story lines, enticing and infecting millions of our children? Harry Hay, the founder of the gay liberation movement stated, Everyone, even heterosexual people, all have the potential to have that fairy spirit.”
Perhaps no movie has been quite as successful in propagating homosexuality as natural and normative as Brokeback Mountain. To get an understanding of how this movie manipulated the public we can look at a piece of propaganda created out of thin air by the father of the sexual revolution here in America, Alfred Kinsey. Kinsey was exposed for fabricating bogus numbers, when he claimed that 10 percent of Americans are homosexual. Subsequent studies revealed that the truth ended up being between two and three percent. Kinsey was found to have inflated his statistics by interviewing large numbers of prison inmates and prostitutes.
Kinsey also made bogus claim that a disproportionate number of cowboys, who ride their horses in the open range, are in fact gay and hook up with each other to have homosexual encounters. Kinsey never showed any study that would suggest such was the case. I mention this because Kinsey was trying to get America away from the effeminate stereotype of homosexuals that repulsed so many people. Kinsey sought to cast homosexuals as real men. What Kinsey may have done though, was take a page from a Marlboro cigarettes advertising campaign that popularized Marlboro among men just a few years earlier than Kinsey’s wild assertion.
Since 1924, Marlboro was marketed to women, as they were originally designed with a red band around the filter to hide lipstick and advertised as “Mild As May.” In the 1950’s, after cigarettes were proven to cause cancer, Phillip Morris wanted to attract men to his filtered cigarettes, men who would never use filters in the past. How could he get men to smoke what was previously billed a women’s cigarette? Simple: reposition Marlboro as a man’s cigarette by placing it in the mouth of a rugged cowboy. This cowboy, depicted on thousands of billboards nation wide, came to be known as the Marlboro Man. In a matter of months Marlboro went from a market share of less than less one percent to one of the best selling brands in the United States!
Ironically, even though homosexuality is often more deadly than smoking, Hollywood, like Kinsey, sought to make homosexuality acceptable by using a page out of Phillip Morris’ playbook. The licentious movie Brokeback Mountain, recast homosexuality as a lifestyle akin to a healthy masculine cowboy. Kinsey would have been proud!
Shofarsound: Can you give a little more detail on Michael Swift’s comments in the Gay Community News that you mention in your CD expose’ Satanism and Homosexual Agenda?
Pastor Joe: Homosexual activist Michael Swift flaunted gay aspirations in the Gay Community News piece entitled “Gay Revolutionary” as he envisioned a gay utopia:
“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools…. in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms…wherever men are men together. Your sons will become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us” [Michael Swift, Gay Community News, 15 February 1987].
What I find chilling, is that while some of Swift’s statements in the piece are somewhat satirical and inflammatory, is that many of the things he articulates as gay aspirations, with regard to our children, are already happening in our “youth groups…. movie theater’s [and] bathrooms” every day.
[GCMW Note: Homosexual activists claim the Swift peice was only intended to be taken as “satire”.]
Shofarsound: So can we assume that Swift’s revisioning of America under a homosexual rule is coming true?
Pastor Joe: My comments on the question you asked earlier about the media and Hollywood, reveal that they are indeed seeking to “recast” our children in their “image,” as Swift states. Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen detail a three-stage plan to homosexualize America in their book, After the Ball. They describe the plan to further the gay agenda and homosexualize America as a threefold plan, “desensitize, jam, and convert.”
The first stage is to desensitize by inundating the public with a “continuous flood of gay-related advertising, presented in the least offensive fashion possible.” They go on to say, “The main thing is to talk about gayness until the issue becomes thoroughly tiresome . . . If you can get [straights] to think [homosexuality] is just another thing—meriting no more than a shrug of the shoulders—then your battle for legal and societal rights is virtually won.”
The second stage, “Jamming,” is described as “psychological terrorism meant to silence expression or even support for dissenting opinion.”
The third stage is “Conversion” and they define it as the “conversion of the average American’s emotions, mind, and will, through a planned psychological attack, in the form of propaganda fed to the nation via the media”
Shofarsound: Tell me how the homosexual agenda fits into end time prophecy.
Pastor Joe: Jesus warned us that in the last days, just prior to his return, that the world would become just as vile as it was in the days of Lot, who was persecuted by homosexuals of Sodom (Luke 17:26-30). That homosexuality is one of the sins in view in Sodom is made clear in Jude 1:6-8.
We are also warned in the book of Revelation, that the world will become so wicked, that even the holy city of Jerusalem will become like Sodom and Egypt in the last days (Rev. 11:8).
Add to these passages the fact that the apostle Paul, in 2 Timothy 3:1-7 stated that the last days perilous times would come, and that many people would be “without natural affection.” The Greek word that Paul uses is Astorgos, which literally means “without family love” or “without natural love.” The only other place that Astorgos is used in the New Testament is in Romans 1:31, just after Paul condemns homosexual behavior and other sinful activity. Paul’s warning in Romans chapter one, that men abandoned their natural relationship with women for that which was against nature, is certainly “unnatural affection” and against God’s plan for what He created to be a truly loving family. This brings us back to Crowley’s satanic quest to usher in the age of Antichrist, and destroy the family, which he called “public enemy number one.”
Moreover, in the book of Revelation, which deals with the end of the age, Jesus, not only prophesies about a return to Sodomy, but warns that the final judgment will be for many sins including “abominations,” which we discussed earlier, includes homosexuality (Revelation 21:8, 27).
Shofarsound: The recent passage of California’s gay indoctrination law reveals a tell-tale moment about the goals of homosexual activists. What do you think is the ultimate goal of the homosexual agenda?
Pastor Joe: The most hideous aspect of the goals of the homosexual movement is that many homosexuals want legal access to our children. While this is obviously not true of all homosexuals, we can see that many of the leaders of the modern day gay movement, going back to Crowley, Harry Hay, Alfred Kinsey and Kenneth Anger, they were after the very young. Whether it was Crowley’s sexually perverted orgies with young boys; Harry Hay’s marching with NAMBLA; Kenneth Anger’s relationships with young men like Bobby Beausoleil or Kinsey commissioning the molestation of children in an effort to prove that children are sexual creatures. We document in “The Kinsey Syndrome” that Kinsey favored incest and that he, and many of his associates, have led the way in lowering or eradicating the age of consent laws.
Shofarsound: How is the homosexual agenda influencing the gay christian movement’s theology?
Pastor Joe: The homosexual agenda influences Gay theology by continuing to place the worship of the creature above the worship of the creator. When this takes place, the whole created order is inverted. Tragically, those who embrace gay theology hold the words of their leaders in higher esteem than those of the Lord Jesus Christ, the apostles and the prophets. When you erode the authority of scripture and begin with Satan’s premise in Genesis chapter three, asking “Hath God said?” about things He has already made clear, you fall into the trap of replacing God’s truth with Satan’s lies. Homosexuals, who claim to hold to the authority of scripture as the word of God, typically seek to explain away the many texts that condemn homosexual activity. They ignore the fact that the entire church for 2,000 years, beginning with the early church father’s, uniformly understood God to have made Himself abundantly clear throughout holy scripture, to be against all sexually immoral behavior, including homosexuality.
In 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12, we read that the world will refuse to love the truth and be given over to the lie. The apostle Paul reveals to us that this will result in the worship of the Antichrist as God (2 Thes. 2:1-4). Paul makes a similar point in Romans chapter 1:18-32, when he states that those who worship creation instead of God, believe a lie. Discerning Christians should see where this lie is going and hold fast to God’s Word without wavering.
Shofarsound: We don't see a lot of evidence of the church responding, but in light of what you have revealed, how should the Church respond to the homosexual agenda?
Pastor Joe: I believe that we need to respond to the homosexual agenda with Christ’s great commission. We need to speak the truth in love, and share with homosexuals, the same way we share with those who are caught up in other sins. We need to approach those who have been deceived by the leaders of the homosexual agenda, in a spirit of humility, remembering that we too were enslaved to one vice or another, whether it was homosexuality or a myriad of other sins. We need to remember that we are saved by God’s great grace and that God impartially extends this grace to all of humanity (Titus 2:11-13). We need to remember Paul’s Holy Spirit inspired words when he instructed us to:
“…. always to be gentle toward everyone. At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit” (Titus 3:2b-5).
We need, as the Lord instructed us through the apostle Peter, to always be ready to give an answer for the hope that is within us, with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15).
We need to share the gospel and remember that it is the power of God to salvation, to everyone who believes (Romans 1:16). We need to share with those caught up in homosexual activity, that the power of the gospel to save, refers not only to the power to deliver us from the penalty of sin, but the power of sin. Many who are caught up in homosexuality have experienced the power of the evil one and cannot comprehend the fact that they can be set free. We need to share with them the power of God’s Word (Heb. 4:12); the power of the gospel (Romans 1:16) and the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8). We need to let them know that the same power that rose Jesus from the dead, is available to them in person of Jesus Christ, if they are only willing to sincerely repent of their sins and embrace Him through faith as the Lord and Savior (Romans 8:11). He has promised victory to whoever will come to Him (John 6:37).
I would strongly counsel that we fast and pray for our friends and loved ones, and all who are bound by the spirit of homosexuality. I truly believe we will see greater and greater victory in the lives of those we are witnessing to, when we first break up the fallow ground with prayer and fasting:
“Is this not the fast which I choose, to loosen the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free and break every yoke?” (Isaiah 58:6).
We need to sincerely love and pray for those who have been given misinformation and taught that homosexuality is not a sin, or that it is genetic, or that it is impossible to be set free.
Lastly, I would encourage that those who are in need of help or guidance, to contact ministries like your own, that specialize in biblically based ministry to those caught up in homosexuality. We need to pray for ministries that are on the front line of this battle, so that God will graciously hold them up, and use them mightily to save those who are bound by the stronghold of homosexuality.
