Oh there are prominent Christians who echo JAR's views I think. Certainly Bishop Spong, but then he's a Brit. Probably the Jesus Seminar and all those guys who are interviewed for the annual Eastertime inquisition of Christ in Time and Newsweek, or the many spokespersons who get interviewed on NPR or PBS on Christianity. Of course maybe they aren't well known enough. Jimmy Carter perhaps? Bill Moyers?

It is simply one thing on the list of anti-family values of the Christian right. Maybe I missed what the connection was with the media's role, but your comment made no sense to me. The idea that the right is pushing these values makes no sense if this is considered by them to be one of them. I still don't get what you're saying. Others on the anti-family values list are abortion, condoms in the schools, pornography and so on.
I haven't said one word about my own position on any of this and don't intend to. It's not the topic and I didn't join the thread except to inquire what on earth you were talking about. I still don't get it but I've also lost interest.
