Homosexual Acts Before 11 PM on ABC-TV Should be Punished

Liberty Counsel has filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission against the American Broadcasting Company ("ABC") for airing an outrageously lewd and filthy performance by Adam Lambert on November 22, 2009 during the 2009 American Music Awards.

Prior to going on-air, Lambert explained that his motive went beyond performing. According to the Associated Press, Lambert "wanted to break down a double standard that existed where female performers are often sexually provocative while men don’t do it that often."

When faced with the opportunity to edit the performance before airing it on the West Coast, ABC’s reaction was to promote Lambert’s indecent acts and actually tease and tout his actions as "what everyone will be talking about tomorrow." This shows that ABC used Lambert’s obscene sexual conduct and not his vocal performance to promote its show.
