The seemingly always-outraged group known as One Million Moms now has its sites set on Jennifer Lopez, or rather, her new ABC Family show “The Fosters”, because it follows “a lesbian couple and their diverse family.”
Though the show has yet to air a single episode or even film the pilot, the premise is enough to enrage the conservative watchdog group.
In a released statement, One Million Moms accused ABC of having “lost their minds” for continuing to grow the list of so-called “anti-family programs.
One Million Moms was also the group behind the protest of JC Penney when the company announced openly gay Ellen DeGeneres as a new spokesperson.
A portion of Christian groups latest statement:
ABC Family reported the comedy-drama pilot, working with the title “The Fosters,” is about two women raising a “21st century,” multi-ethnic mix of foster and biological kids. While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing and the Bible does teach us to help orphans, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together. One Million Moms is not sure how the explanation will be given on how the biological children were conceived. None of this material is acceptable content for a family show.
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.
Lopez will be an executive producer for the hour-long project. Casting has not been announced. It’s still in the pilot stage and hasn’t been picked up for a series yet. Let’s stop this dead in it its tracks.
One Million Moms is asking supporters to help write to ABC Family and urge them not to air programs such as Lopez’s which they claim promote anti-family agendas. They are also asking advertisers to pull commercials from the network as well.
The group has also taken issue with Skittles commercials, TV Land’s “The Soul Man”, ABC’s “666 Park Avenue”, Urban Outfitters stores, NBC’s “The New Normal”, Gap stores, both DC and Marvel Comics, and many other stores, ads, and programs.
