Dolly Parton also comes out in favour of Homosexual 'Marriage' on Show
HOLLYWOOD, November 7, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Famed talk show host Oprah Winfrey has once again promoted homosexuality, this time going so far as to tacitly endorse homosexual 'marriage' by nonchalantly putting forward the term without qualification on a recent show. Throughout the show, Oprah referred to guest Melissa Etheridge as "married" to her lesbian partner Tammy Lynn Michaels even though homosexual 'marriage' is illegal in the United States.
WorldNetDaily.com lists several examples of Oprah's use of the term "married" to describe the lesbian couples throughout the show. Oprah's website offers a preview clip where she can be heard using the word "married" to describe the couple. Country singer Dolly Parton, also a guest on the show, said she believed in same-sex 'marriage'. [See Section on Homosexuality]
Winfrey's support for the homosexual agenda and for abortion has long concerned pro-family advocates. During the Emmy awards in September 2002 she was awarded the inaugural Bob Hope Humanitarian Award. In her acceptance speech, Winfrey said, "We all are just regular people seeking the same thing: the guy on the street, the woman in the classroom, the Israeli, the Afghan, the Zuni, the Apache, the Irish, the Protestant, the Catholic, the gay, the straight, you, me -- we all just want to know that we matter. We want validation." [See Section on Abortion]
In 2000 Winfrey was the keynote speaker at a luncheon held by the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, a group whose priority this year is to ensure that minors, without parental consent, maintain their access to contraceptives and abortion. Oprah's cameo appearance on the "coming out" episode of the TV show "Ellen" in 1997 demonstrates her long-standing promotion of homosexuality.

Oprah Winfrey Endorses Homosexuality Again With Upcoming Show
Monday October 17, 2005
CHICAGO, Illinois, October 17, 2005, (LifeSiteNews.com) - According to the web site of well known talk show host Oprah Winfrey, her endorsement of the homosexual lifestyle will continue when she interviews a man who took part in a reality television program entitled “30 days: Straight Man in a Gay World.”
“30 Days” is a reality show produced by Morgan Spurlock who gained notoriety for his documentary “Super Size Me” in which he ate only McDonald’s food for 30 days. During this particular segment a farmer, Ryan Hickmott, from Michigan spends 30 days with a gay marketing consultant in San Francisco. The program notably did not address the sexual practices of many homosexuals that are said to often eventually lead to disease and other serious physical and psychological consequences.
While Hickmott doesn’t disavow his belief that homosexuality is contrary to biblical teaching he does say that he has “a very positive image of homosexuals.” He claims to be newly “open-minded, matured,” and “a better person.” He admits to having made uninformed opinions in the past.
For this reason Oprah is bringing the man onto her show. In 2000 Winfrey was the keynote speaker at a luncheon held by the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention, a group whose priority this year is to ensure that minors, without parental consent, maintain their access to contraceptives and abortion. Winfrey's cameo appearance on the "coming out" episode of the TV show "Ellen" in 1997 raised concerns at the time over the promotion of homosexuality.
In 2002, during the Emmy awards in which she was awarded the inaugural Bob Hope Humanitarian Award, she said, "We all are just regular people seeking the same thing: the guy on the street, the woman in the classroom, the Israeli, the Afghani, the Zuni, the Apache, the Irish, the Protestant, the Catholic, the gay, the straight, you, me -- we all just want to know that we matter. We want validation."
In 2003 Oprah referred to guest Melissa Etheridge as "married" to her lesbian partner Tammy Lynn Michaels even though homosexual 'marriage' is illegal in the United States.
Oprah's Promotion of Porn and Adultery Shameful,
An October 2, 2007 article in the American Family News Network says ..
“A special counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) is blasting talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey for promoting pornography on her program.
On a recent show titled "237 Reasons to Have Sex," Winfrey featured a number of so-called "experts" on marriage and intimacy. Among them was a woman who traveled worldwide experiencing one night stands -- and then wrote a book about the experience. Another guest advocated the use of pornography for couples to enhance their marriage.
ADF special counsel Pat Trueman says it is shameful that Winfrey would advocate destructive behavior on her national talk show. "Shame on Oprah!" says Truman. "There are lots of children who watch the show. Many adults; many, many Christians; she's got a loyal following because she does have good things on her show."
But he argues that because of Winfrey's status, giving a forum to people with what he describes as "anti-Christian" and "sinful" values only serves to popularize such behavior -- and that encouraging adultery and pornography can only harm marriages.
"They had a show the same week on the bipolar disorder that many people suffer from," notes the attorney. And he points out that in the past, Winfrey has aired shows examining the topic of pornography addiction. "She has shows on a variety of issues that are helpful, so she's built up a solid reputation."
Trueman suggests that Winfrey think twice before using her top-rated program to promote such things as adultery and pornography”.
