In "KSL's family brand" (Forum, Sept. 1), Thom Benedict criticized KSL for refusing to carry "New Normal," a new NBC fall sitcom about "modern family that happens to include two dads."
I agree with KSL. A two-dad family is not a "normal" lifestyle. If you want to participate in or approve of this lifestyle, that's your choice, just as it's mine not to accept it. I will not try to convince you that is it not the way to live.
Like the Mormons, as a Christian I believe homosexuality is a sin and do not care to see it on TV. God does not approve of this lifestyle; it is a lust forbidden by God (see Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13).
God created one man and one woman with the ability to reproduce. So please stop trying to persuade me that homosexuality is OK, and stop calling me homophobic because I stand by the Bible.
A lot of TV shows now include gay couples. I am tired of it. My hand gets tired from switching channels. What next? A family with a father who is a child molester and to be told it is just another "normal" lifestyle?
