I had forgotten about that episode. That's a good example, too.ArcticFox wrote: It's one I generally avoid along with the incredibly Anvilicious Star Trek: The Next Generation episode (The Outcast) where Riker falls for an alien from a race that are all androgynous... but occasionally one pops up with male or female characteristics. When that happens they get reconditioned to being back to neutral. Of course, the speech they gave is practically straight out of a LGBT rhetoric handbook.
Any future story line in either genre that touches on that stuff will almost certainly be an overt celebration of same sex couples as Hollywood continues to try and strengthen it's "progressive" cred. Kinda like the comic book you mentioned.
But let's turn these scenarios back to the question at hand. By purchasing these comics, or purchasing these episodes on DVD, aren't you quietly sending the message to Marvel, or Paramount, or whoever, that you support the agendas that they're trying to push? Even if you try to avoid the issues or episodes that promote causes you disapprove of, you're still sending your money to these companies that they can use to donate to political causes, or pay writers to create more of the media you disapprove of.
That's kind of the focus of this Web site, on the video game front. By letting Christians know what certain video games contain, it gives them the knowledge to make their own decisions - namely, "do I want to purchase a game that supports things that compromise my values?"
Understand that I have no problems with boycotts. I tend to have a few personal boycotts myself. There is a short list of celebrities and companies that I won't give money to because of their stance on different issues. (For example, Roman Polanski, for being a child molester and avoiding the law for so many years.)
But back to the matter at hand - what's the difference between refusing to attend a gay friend's wedding and giving money to a company or a celebrity that endorses gay marriage? Or is there a difference? Should both be avoided whenever possible?
