If you still doubt that the mainstream media are anti-American and are actively working on corrupting our society, this post should remove all doubt.
Last May, Gallup conducted its annual Values and Beliefs poll on the American people’s views on the moral acceptability of 21 issues.
The poll found that despite our bitter partisan divisions, conservatives and liberals are broadly united in their belief that these five behaviors are morally wrong: suicide, cloning animals, cloning humans, polygamy, and extramarital affairs:
- An overwhelming majority of Americans, 80%, believe polygamy to be morally wrong.
- An even greater majority, 89%, believe “married men and women having an affair” is morally wrong.
But the major television networks are actively promoting sexual promiscuity and “polyamory” — which the Cambridge Dictionary defines as “the practice of having sexual or romantic relationships with two or more people at the same time.”
Peter Hasson reports for The Daily Caller, Oct. 29, 2019, that “major media outlets” are normalizing non-monogamous relationships.
The latest major media outlet to do so is CBSN, the digital streaming arm of CBS News, which aired an hourlong special, “Non-Monogamy,” last Sunday (Oct. 27) night.
The special portrayed non-monogamous relationships in a sympathetic light. CBS promoted the special in an Oct. 25 press release two days before the program’s airing:
For years, monogamy has dominated what society perceives as, and allows to be, ‘normal,’ but in the modern era, those parameters are softening….
The newest CBSN Originals documentary, “Non-Monogamy,” highlights individuals engaging in various forms of consensual non-monogamy including polyamory, a triad monogamous relationship, a polyfidelitous closed quad, and a committed couple dating outside of their marriage. As Dr. Elisabeth Sheff puts it, “I think of it almost like a menu, a relationship menu, and that serial monogamy is at the top of the menu, and probably the most popular dish that people order, but there’s all these other things that people can order now, and they are.”
Sheff calls herself (itself?) “one of a handful of global academic experts on polyamory”.
The CBS digital-streaming special included a 22-minute documentary of interviews with people in openly non-monogamous relationships. The documentary is followed by interviews with a pro-polyamory researcher and a pro-polyamory lawyer. The people in openly non-monogamous relationships who were interviewed include:
- A man identified as Alex, in an “open marriage” with his wife Bridget of just one year, told CBSN: “The way our parents were brought up, monogamy felt like it was necessary. It was just the way culture accepted you, it is the way everybody accepted you. Now, things are different, things are opening up.” Alex and Bridget both have outside sexual partners.
- Husband and wife C.J. and Brandi, who have a “triad monogamous relationship” with Brooke. “Triad monogamous” is an oxymoron because the very definition of “monogamy” precludes a threesome. Brandi said that “with three people it makes it a little bit easier to get those [sexual] needs fulfilled.” Brandi and Brooke don’t have sex with each other, which means that the purpose of the threesome is to “fulfill” the “sexual needs” of the man, C.J.
- A man called Mahdi, in a “triad” with two women, said “I had to divorce my first partner because my second partner had immigration status issues” and that he is in a relationship with both of them. Mahdi complained that he lost his health insurance since he divorced his first wife.
According to The Daily Caller, “CBS is just the latest major media company to promote polyamory.”
Other major outlets promoting polyamory include:
- The New York Times: In August, NYT published a feature piece titled “Polyamory Works for Them,” describing monogamy as “a curious stalwart” and that more and more young people are rejecting its “blandness.” In an Oct. 2 article on marriages involving members of polyamorous relationships, NYT said “People are becoming more curious about consensual non-monogamy.”
