Transcript Page 4 / Montrose Voice / May 29,1981 The State /The Nation Roger Staubach said to be fighting to "save children" from "smut TV" In the old Anita Bryant style Former Dallas pro footballer Roger Staubach is leading the fight against what he called "cableporn," reported Houston Chronicle columnist Ann Hodges this past week. Staubach was said to have grouped homosexuality and "women being brutally molested" into the same category. "What I'm telling you Is so shocking, so threatening that you may not believe it," Hodges quoted Staubach in the May 26 edition of the paper, adding, "But I can't let another day go by without alerting you to the danger that may invade your home. Homosexual acts, women being brutally molested and raped, and other explicit sex acts can now explode into your living room on some public access cable TV channels." Staubach, Hodges reported, was sending out letters under the banner of "morality in Media" urging parents to join in his fight against those who would turn cable TV into "a dangerous weapon that might be used against our children and grandchildren." The Montrose Voice, the ONLY publication in the world JUST for Montrose The material sent out by Staubach to Hodges was said to be part of a general mailing by the organization and included a postage-paid return envelope requesting contributions. <La Cage' going to Broadway NEW YORK—Producer Allan Carr, the subject of much of Alan Cartnal's new book California Crazy, will be producing a Broadway version of La Cage aux Folles next season, reported the New York Times in a copyrighted story through its news service May 15. If the show goes off, it will be Carr's first Broadway production. His film credits include co-producing Grease. The La Cage story started on a Paris stage, was made into a movie, imported into the U.S. on film, where it became the largest-grossing foreign film ever. A sequal, La Cage Folles II is now touring the U.S. The story line in both revolves about two aging gay nightclub owners. In Carr's Broadway version, the locale will be moved from the French Riviera to New Orelans and will be retitled The Queen of Basin Street, the newspaper reported. Among the people Carr reportedly said were being involved included Houstonian Tommy Tune as a co-director with Mike Nichols. Tune will also choreograph the play, the paper said. The New York paper said that Carr expects the play to cost about $2.5 million and to go into rehearsal after Labor Day. He was said to be looking toward a Dec. 14 ten-week tryout in San Francisco. James Robison in debt, cuts back ministry HURST, Texas—James Robison, one of the more vocal anti-gay television ministers, is hurting and cutting his staff down by about a third, a spokesman said in mid-May, reported UPI. Robison's program was being broadcast on about a hundred stations, including KHTV, channel 39 in Houston, where it had been airing at 9:30 p.m. on Sundays. The news service said that it was told by Tammy Ledbetter, director of public relations for the James Robison Evangelistic Association, that about 50 positions ofthe 170-member staff were recently dropped. His electronic ministry was said to be more than $1 million in debt. About half of the debt was said to be for television time Robison was purchasing for his broadcasts. It was reported that ten stations were being dropped to help cut expenses, including stations in Los Angeles, Chicago and Denver. Houston was not mentioned in the UPI news item. Walter Bennett Advertising was handling the placing of the programs for Robison, and the news report said an agreement had been reached that would be salvaging the remaining stations. Other cutbacks reported to have been made included moving into less expensive offices, cutting the ministry's monthly magazine from 32 to 16 pages, and eliminating a toll-free telephone line which was used for counseling. The Federal Communications Commission last February refused to review a February 1980 decision that dismissed a complaint by Robison against WFAA-TV in Dallas. The association had charged that the station acted improperly and misinterpreted the fairness doctrine when it canceled the program James Robison Presents in February 1979. The program was canceled after Robison preached a sermon on moral decay in the United States that spoke derogatorily about gay rights activists and the gay movement. WFAA said it canceled the program because the station deals with controversial issues of public importance only in news and public affairs programs. Since the station is responsible for everything on its airwaves, it is within the station's discretion to decide how best to meet its fairness- doctrine obligation to discuss controversial issues, the commissioners said.
