There are those on both sides of the LGBT debate who love to push this false decision between religion and sexual identity. There are, of course, those in between who want to make it clear that you do not have to choose between religion and being gay. Catholics in Media Associates honored the show “Modern Family” this past weekend.
Modern Family is known especially for the fact that there is a gay married couple on the show, and it has received numerous awards from LGBT organizations. CIMA, though, stated about the show “This remains far and away the best prime-time sitcom: crisp and farcical, but very kind. This fast-paced mockumentary perfectly captures the experience of parenthood.”
According to Yahoo News “Other honorees at the ceremony included Martin Scorsese’s 3D film ‘Hugo,’ the Emilio Estevez/Martin Sheen movie ‘The Way’ and the Tom Shadyac documentary ‘I Am.’”
CIMA Awards is meant to recognize “those projects and people in the entertainment industry who, by their work, have made clearer the Word of God.”
