American Family Association Attacks The Trevor Project and “Degrassi” For “Recruiting Teens to Become ‘Gay’

The officially recognized American Family Association with its umbrella hate group the Florida Family Association is attacking The Trevor Project which is airs a suicide prevention spot during the Teen Nick channel’s  DiGrassi.

Degrassi: The Next Generation (renamed Degrassi from the tenth season) is a Canadian teen drama television series.  Degrassi:  follows an ensemble cast of students at Degrassi Community School who face various challenges like poor self image, peer pressure, child abuse, sexual identity, gang violence, self-injury, teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, homosexuality and death. And in a recent storyline portrayed a transgendered teenager.

According to the AFA:

Not only is Teen Nick affirming the homosexual and transgender lifestyles in the content of the program itself but also includes promotions during Degrassi which lead America’s youth toward, not away from embracing these behaviors.

The David Colton Executive Director of the FFA continues:

“They are openly recruiting teens and children to become ‘gay’ on a program that also promotes the transgender and homosexual lifestyle, if you call this helpline, you are not persuaded to walk away from the lifestyle. You are persuaded to be proud and embrace it.”

Oh and get this  The main sponsor of the Digrassi?  TARGET.  And the AFA is calling for financial terrorism, er I mean a boycott against TARGET CORP.   Irony or what?

As for David Colton.  “Dangerous lifestyle?” Please bitch, that meme needs to go. The only danger a gay teens faces is from bigots like you make thier living from the money they receive from the fear, studity, and hate of it’s members.  If anything must go it’s YOU.  And I will do my damndest to see that happen.
