    It is unbelieveable to me that in this day and age

    people can STILL be this prejudice. Do you realize that,

    to the open-minded righteous folks out there, you sound

    exactly like those like-minded racists of the 60's, trying

    to keep a certain kind of people out of your "too good for

    them" kind of society??

    This story is beautiful and Luke and Noah deserve to be

    together, though I agree that the forced Maddie

    relationship was really the military man's child trying to

    turn himself away from the ways of nature and it will

    probably take awhile before Noah and Luke become Loah, but

    it will be a wonderful day when it finally happens. If you

    love someone, love them. There is enough prejudice in the

    world, as proved by this board, to let something so

    beautiful pass you by. Regardless of whether we are male

    or female, falling in love is the most beautiful thing in

    the world and it would be a great injustice if the writers

    screw this up as most other soaps have done before them.

    Also, it should be pointed out that actual terrible

    things have happened on this show, (most recently: murder,

    rape, kidnapping, psychosis) obviously you should not be

    watching a soap with your family anyway. If you are afraid

    of a natural love and relationship between two people

    being shown to your children then you should probably

    purchase those plastic bubbles now because the world is a-

    changin' and after the next election the opression will be

    over. You can count on it. Kudos to the writers of As The

    World Turns for being with the times and acknowledging

    real life. Keep it up.

    Prejudice has nothing to with what is right. That's just a word that liberals use when then want to flaunt their sick attitudes and hurt people who believe in God. If you really believe that two males or two females doing what only husband and wife hae the right to do then you muat believe that having A.I.D.S is a right. This is wrong and I don't watch things that promote it.

    Bravo viewers!!!

    I am so proud that there are enough people out there who can tolerate different people and a different type of love. Just because it's on television doesn't mean you have to watch it.

    But this SL will show the teens we know are watching (because we get one posting here all the time), that it's ok to have and acknowledge those feelings without feeling shame or guilt. Not acknowleding them can lead to other problems.

    I applaud ATWT for having the guts to grow with the rest of the world. Sorry to those of you who choose to walk around with your eyes closed..... but you need to watch out cuz you may run into something alot worse than two men together.

    My goodness.... you don't have to accept it as something you would do, I just hope that no one in your families comes out to you and you treat them with this kind of intolerance.

    I can't believe that in this day in age people still think like this. No one is asking you to march in a parade, just wait and see what happens. They may never get past the look they had on their faces.

    I for one feel that Luke and Noah would make a great experiment. I say experiment because the show won't go too far with this story. They've even already have written an "out" for Noah, if the SL isn't working then Noah can go off to the military.

    Isn't it something how the writers gave the gay couple biblical names? Luke and Noah??

    This show has people fornicating, commiting adultery, robbing, coveting their neighbors...... shall I go on? We are watching all kinds of "sin" on this show, we now have decided to pick and choose which sin is worse than the other?

    So is Jack and Katie having sex on television as bad as two boys in a relationship by the the way you described that it's something to be shared between a man and his wife? If so then a whole lot of us are wrong for watching and supporting this show for so long!

    Okay, then I choose "in this so called day and Time" all these things have benn going on since the beginning of time.That doesn't make any of it right and showing it in this paticular venue is not the place for it. I enjoy a little relief from the soap opera of life like the rest of you. I've seen what happens to children and women when perverts act out their desires for what they call "love". Do you have any idea what happens to a young boy or girl when someone decides their style of love is good for the innocent. I stay away from that kind of person. This is not an innocent act of love.

    Ok I am reading some of the post here and I don't understand what half of you are saying....


    In your last post are you saying that you've seen young women and children who have been raped or molested??? It's sad when that happens, really horrible infact but watching this show is not saying it's ok to do that.... it's saying it's ok to love regardless of who you are loving.

    This question is directed at no one particular.....

    If Luke were a real boy would you want him to hate himself for the rest of his life because he has feelings that no one else shares??? Would it be ok because it would make you happy?

    Characters on this show do some nasty stuff and we choose to hold the moral high ground when it comes to homosexuality??? Come on!!! It's interesting how we pick and choose.....

    Oh yeah Libra, yeah, it's interesting how they chose the names Luke and Noah, it's like the writers knew they would cause a bit of controversy.

    "This is wrong and I don't watch things that promote it."

    I just wanted to point out that saying this just doesn't make any sense to me. If your argument against watching the show is that homosexuality is wrong, then you should take into account everything else in the show. People have affairs and switch husbands and wives ever day. They do all kinds of things that are wrong. IF you haven't stopped watching the show yet, then you probably aren't able to claim the moral argument in order to now.

    Now, I know what you mean when you say it's not predjudice cause it's not. When something is wrong it's wrong. This is not a family show. It is a soap opera. Soap operas have always had things that are not morally right on them. Either you watch the show or you don't.....but don't use God to bash people. I have a feeling He wouldn't like anything on the show.

    And for the record it is a gross scene for me to watch as well but so is katie and jack having sex on a counter in a studio. I don't think this is any more gross than that....and they are both wrong situations....and not either one more than the other

    To all of you people who hate Carly for trying to rescue your son....I would like to see what you would do if your child was kidnapped. I for one would not sit back and expect someone else to save him if there was something I could do. I applaud Carly for following Kit...she tried to call Jack and he wasn't available so she did what any true mother should do. Oh and I probably would have wanted to pay the ransom too. I think you're all Katie lovers and are just trying to bash Carly. You know I think Katie should be ashamed of herself for being upset that Carly, the mother of Jack's children is there trying to get her son back. She is so selfish and I think that just proves it. Anyways back off Carly....if Jack gets killed, it's not Carly's fault. If that happens and everyone blames Carly they're stupid. JJ was kidnapped. They have to do something.

    Ashley Jr,

    I like what you said. I don't like it when people use God and the Bible only when they want to show you how bad one thing is, but will accept anything else.

    How is sex with Luke and Noah any worse than sex with Carly and Simon or Maddie and Noah? It's still wrong. But no one said a thing.... in fact we applauded when Maddie and Casey finally had sex!!! They aren't married!

    Posted by La Libra at Thursday, August 09 2007 08:04 PM

    I take back what I said, what I meant to say is....

    How is sex with Luke and Noah any worse than sex with Carly and Simon or Maddie and Noah? It's still sex.
