Those damn liberal homosexual Hollywood-types ...

Our most important fundraising drive of the year is now underway. After you're done reading, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to ensure that In These Times can continue publishing in the year ahead.

Those gay cowboys; what were they thinking?Today, the Concerned Women for America expressed their displeasure at the fact that the movie about "male homosexual sheepherders" was spreading "acceptance of homosexuality."CWA also indicated that they were very unhappy with Felicity Huffman for her Golden Globe award-winning role in Transamerica, and at Philip Seymour Hoffman for winning a Golden Globe for best-actor as the raving homosexual Truman Capote.“Once again, the media elites are proving that their pet projects are more important than profit," said Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, CWA’s Senior Fellow of the Beverly LaHaye Institute.That's right! As long as Hollywood gets to promote gay sex, who cares about capitalism!

Support progressive media

As a nonprofit, reader-supported publication, In These Times depends on donations from people like you to continue publishing. Our final, end-of-year fundraising drive accounts for nearly half of our total budget. That’s why this fundraising drive is so important.

If you are someone who depends on In These Times to learn what is going on in the movements for social, racial, environmental and economic justice, the outcome of this fundraising drive is important to you as well.

How many readers like you are able to contribute between now and December 31 will determine the number of stories we can report, the resources we can put into each story and how many people our journalism reaches. If we come up short, it will mean making difficult cuts at time when we can least afford to do so.

If it is within your means, please make a tax-deductible donation today, to ensure that In These Times can continue publishing in the year ahead.
