A Miami area Christian media company, which owns radio station WBIY (88.3FM) has decided to protest the Univision Spanish Language television network because they believe that an interview with recently-out pop star Ricky Martin is “pornographic”. Oscar Aguero Ministry says that the show is too accessible to children at around 7 or 8 PM and that the content is not child appropriate.
Oscar Aguero Ministry is threatening to report Univision to the FCC for supposed violations. “Univision's complicity in transmitting this message deserves, on our side, our complaints before the FCC,” says Oscar Aguero, “which says that any pornographic, indecent or obscene content can be reported as a complaint.”
The interview, titled Ricky Martin – Without Secrets features footage of Martin and his twin sons and at a separate point in the production, the singer discusses his earliest sexual encounters and the first time he fell in love with a man.
The Advocate Magazine notes that the church also says Martin has long promoted the “homosexual agenda” at concerts by urging people to live “la vida loca.”
Without Secrets comes at the heels of Martin’s new autobiography “Me”. Read SFGN’s review of the autobiography here.
