Christian television channel Revelation TV has been fined $6,000 for homophobic remarks made on one of its breakfast shows. The channel, The UK based channel which broadcasts in Spain, was given the penalty by the Spanish National Commission of Markets and Competition (CNMC). The offending conversation was about transgender children following a Christian family removing their child from school because one of his classmates identified as transgender. The pastor on the show said: “We are going to create a political party or join a party to change this madness.
We are going to have to do this, because if we don’t, we will have Sodom and Gomorrah at our doorsteps. A statement by the CNMC explaining the penalty said the comments on the discussion show “could be considered threatening to the dignity of the homosexual and transgender group, although there was no manifest incitation to hate against these groups by the channel that owns the programme”. However, Gordon Pettie, director of Revelation TV has denied the conversation on the show was homophobic. And because it has become aggressive, it has become heavy, and if we don’t confront this militancy it is going to get worse, it is going to get really bad.
He went on to say: “We need to understand that the people behind this agenda are not foolish, they know exactly what they are doing. They know that the child doesn’t have a clue what is going on, so if they can manage to manipulate those kids to believe that this is what is natural, that will stick to the children. They want to influence a generation ahead of time, so that when they are 20 or 25, the whole world has changed to exactly where they want them to be.” Revelation TV is also dealing with a Charity Commission investigation looking into the organisation’s finances. Revelation TV bosses have consistently denied any wrongdoing.
