    Questions should be asked of Fox News hosts about this, over and over again. LOL !!!

    Bachmann and a few others won't be able to hold up Fox News as having the 'christian principles' to be their spokesmen anymore. All these far righters should be questioned about this too.

    An awkward issue for the haters, no doubt, including those on this site.

    Its not an awkward issue. I can explain it to you fairly easily.

    Newspapers, tv networks, etc are businesses. They generate income for the company that owns them. The bottom line is revenue. You create your niche and fill it.

    The hosts on Fox would have nothing to say about what their parent company does in its business ventures because its not their concern. They are employees. If they felt strongly, they would leave I suppose. You think all of this is personal. Its not. Its business. The fact they are launching a gay magazine proves the point. If there is money to made, good executives exploit it. Money is green, no matter if it comes from straight people or gay people.

    ^^^ Exactly!! ^^^ I don't understand why that is such a hard concept to grasp. There's a reason why more liberally skewed networks on TV (like MSNBC) and radio (like AIR AMERICA) struggle for an audience when stations like FNC thrive. Even CNN has moved more to the right as of late and guess what -- ratings are UP!. These are businesses, and they are run as such. Not any real big surprise there.

    "Haters on this site"? Really Art? Do name names. I'd be really curious to hear who YOU consider a "hater" -- someone who disagrees with your opinion? icon_rolleyes.gif

    I don't think they are either, but all the politicians with their 'christian principles' in order, won't allow intrance to their repub/TBagger club without each new 'recruit' having their own 'Christian bonified's" in order. This group (Palin, Bachmann, Santorum, Huckabee and the like) uses FOX as their mouthpiece so this should be brought out loud and clear, lets see how they can twist this new gay venture of their FOX partner into their 'christian principled' political sceem.

    The only one who could have a problem with it is Huckabee. He is an employee who happens to be a devout christian and this might be a conflict. It wont matter to the others. The others wont care about it and they shouldnt.

    Your probably right, but I'd sure like to see how they and their TBagger backers deal with the subject.

    T Party backers? Backers of whom? You mean of the political candidate and the fact they are on Fox? I dont think the average Joe is going to be aware of a tiny magazine catering to gay marriage. I also dont think they would care very much.

    ^^^ Exactly!! ^^^^ It's astounding to me how some here thinks the whole world runs around caring (or even thinking) about anything "gay". Sorry, guys, we're not THAT important!

    You guys need to sort out reality and the news. Its the media's job to confuse the two; that is how it "makes news" .The last election showed that the christian right amounts to 15% of the voting population. So they aren't really an issue unless there is money to made making them News and gay folks are exploited to do that by fox in a big way.
