TV Station Fires Staffer Over ‘Straight Pride’ Post

Christian Talk Podcast

An Ohio television station fired a longtime staffer after she posted a message on her personal Facebook page promoting heterosexual pride.

WFMJ TV in Youngstown, Ohio, confirmed through a Facebook post last week that the station’s Community Relations Director, Madonna Chism Pinkard, was fired over a Facebook post advocating for “Straight Pride” during June’s “Pride” Month, according to news outlet Mahoning Matters.

She is an award-winning broadcaster, who had been employed by the NBC affiliate since 2004.

“The post, on her personal page, which has since been taken down showed a meme with a newlywed man and woman that stated, “Celebrate Straight Pride,” “It’s Natural, It Has Worked for Thousands of Years,” “And You Can Make Babies!”

“WFMJ has terminated the employment of our Community Relations Director following her unauthorized post on a company-linked social media site last week,” the station said on the post.

“WFMJ is committed to serving our entire community with the respect we believe all people deserve. We recognize we live in a diverse community with differing views on many topics, and we believe discussions of those views and reporting on them should be done in a respectful manner by all. We deeply regret that our Community Relations Director crossed the line.

That statement, on her personal page, apparently still contradicts company policy at WFMJ, a television station owned by the Maag family.

This story once again reflects the anti-Christian declining culture’s intolerance of traditional values, and in this case, reality.
