The anti-gay group One Million Moms is in a furor over a new television series produced by Jennifer Lopez for ABC.
The group blasted the show, which centers around a lesbian couple, as “anti-family.” In a statement, the group vows to stop it “dead in its tracks.”
“Obviously, ABC has lost their minds,” the statement says.” They haven’t let up, so neither will we. ABC’s Family Channel has several anti-family programs, and they are planning on adding to that growing list. ABC Family has approved a series pilot from Jennifer Lopez’s production company, Nuyorican, about a lesbian couple and their diverse family.
“Many families have already discovered that ABC Family Channel is anything but family-friendly. But because of family being part of the network’s name, we thought a warning should still be sent out for anyone who continues to watch the channel.
“A premiere date has not been set, but One Million Moms wanted to sound the alarm about this new series. It will be airing on the network soon unless we do something about it. They are in the beginning stages.”
“Hollywood is continuing to push an agenda that homosexuality is acceptable when scripture states clearly it is a sin. As Christians, the Bible also says that we must speak up against sin. If we remain silent then we are guilty of sin also.”
The series under attack has the working title of “Meet the Fosters.” Industry observers say OMM’s opposition will not influence ABC Family, which has long ago written off the fringe-right Christian community.
One Million Mom’s frequently launches boycotts and crusades against companies that do not follow their interpretation of scripture. The group vigorously attacked JCPenney for choosing Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson, but the brand saw a positive increase in perception as a result, according to market analysts. Their attack on the NBC show “The New Normal” (pictured), which debuts on Sept. 11, resulted in a Utah station cancelling the program. But they put the comedy in the news and generated unusually high viewer interest.
Before turning to Lopez’s TV show, OMM attacked the candy Skittles over a commercial in which a woman kisses a walrus. OMM said the commercial shows the candy maker “is taking lightly the act of bestiality.”
