The Danger of "Modern Family"

From Addicting Info:  

Evan Martel for the Media Research Center—a conspiracy theorist publication whose “sole mission is to expose and neutralize the propaganda arm of the Left: the national news media” openly confessed to having watched the episode of Modern Family in which the two men get engaged, and furthermore, he confessed that it gave him feelings. He actually found himself sympathizing for gay people. For a moment, Evan Martel actually thought that gay people were human beings entitled to basic civil rights, and that, he says, is that makes the show so dangerous.

He writes:
“I laughed. I cried. I felt. It moved me like good art is supposed to do. But that’s the problem. It moved me. It made me feel joy for Cam and Mitchell after the Supreme Court over-ruled California’s Prop 8. And that is what makes this show great. And dangerous.”
Why “dangerous?” Well, because this show, he says, is an unrealistic portrayal of homosexuality. It relies on “misleading” feelings about gay people—like that two men can truly love one another, that gay couples are part of the evolving landscape of American family, and that, for many, the overturn of DOMA and Prop 8 was a life-altering event. It’s “dangerous” because the show can leave you feeling sympathetic to the LGBT community– the horror!
