Tony Perkins vs. ABC Family


A few weeks after being honored by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation for its positive LGBT portrayals, ABC Family has been lambasted by the Family Research Council's Tony Perkins for the same reason, Think Progress reports.

In its annual Network Responsibility Index, GLAAD stated, "This year, ABC Family becomes the second network, cable or broadcast, to receive an 'Excellent' rating in this report due to the quality and diversity of its many LGBT impressions,"

ABC Family also ranked highest for LGBT-inclusive original content posted the largest increase in such content.

Perkins, president of the antigay Family Research Council, responded to the situation by saying, "That's a serious problem, considering that ABC Family is the highest-rated network for 12-to-34-year-olds. Most parents trust the channel, which used to be owned by Disney. But it's a different story now that the network's going out of its way to indoctrinate kids. That won't change until you get involved. Contact ABC. Tell them what they gain by being gay-friendly doesn't compare with what they'll lose. And that's viewers."
