‘One Million Moms’ launches attack on yet to be seen ABC Family series

Monday, October 8, 2012

The anti-gay group One Million Moms (rounding up from their actual 50,000 Facebook supporters) is now targeting the planned ABC Family channel’s upcoming show, “The Fosters” — even though the series does not even have a completed pilot episode.

The series, an hour-long drama from Executive Producer Jennifer Lopez, and co-created by Peter Paige (“Queer as Folk”), centers around a multi-ethnic family headed by a lesbian couple.

One Million Moms has called the yet-to-be-seen program “anti-family.”

Obviously, ABC has lost their minds. 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.

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.

The group claims that “Hollywood is continuing to push an agenda that homosexuality is acceptable when scripture states clearly it is a sin,” and is urging its supporters to urge advertisers to place it on their ‘do not advertise’ list.”

ABC Family, part of the Disney-ABC Television group, currently counts five LGBT series regular characters among its shows, according to a report last week by GLAAD, making it one of the leading cable networks for LGBT-inclusiveness. It’s broadcast counterpart, the ABC television network, has the highest amount with 5.2% (10 out of 194) of their regular characters identifying as LGBT.

One Million Moms is also actively protesting NBC’s “The New Normal,” and past campaigns have targeted an Archie comic book featuring a gay wedding, Marvel and X-men comics, J.C. Penney (for hiring Ellen DeGeneres as its spokesperson, and featuring gay couples in its advertisements), Urban Outfitters and The Gap, also for advertising targeting the LGBT community.

OMM is “a project of the American Family Association (AFA)” — an organization designated as an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

  2. Of course they are upset…they don’t have anything else better to do. It seems like by now, they would realize that this do VERY LITTLE in ending anything, it only creates further division.

  4. Why not bankrupt the 1 million moms? If enough ppl donate .01 per month- the credit card processing feels will quickly run ‘em into the ground

  5. One million yentas, 50,000 that when all speaking at once sound like a million. The squeeky wheel will get the oil. I hope LGBTQ Nation well forward our likes and comments to ABC to out squeek the yentas. The twisted view of the bible is losing momentum and I couldn’t be happier! Let this pilot air. Let the masses vote on whether they like it or not.

  7. Their group should be called 50,000 moms with nothing better to do.

  8. OMM is full of delusional loonies but that aside this definitely seems like a show I’d love to see! I’ve been wishing there was something with a lesbian focus since The L Word ended!

  13. Oh dear One million Ass wipes, still there’s more than that in this world Sadly.

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 2:27pm
  14. They have little to be worrying about.

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 2:31pm
  15. I love how they say “has several anti-family programs”….Exactly – it shows that what OMM is doing has no effect, so it’s time to give up already. It’s really getting old hearing from these bitter hags.

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 2:32pm
  16. Oh gee. A show about a family is anti-family. I wonder what these people think a family even constitutes? Oh wait. It must be one that is White, Christian, heterosexual with one mom and one dad, and preferably middle or upper class. Gotcha. As for all the other families, purge them I guess, in the name of being Pro-Family. O_o

  17. one million a pain in the ass

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 2:37pm
  18. Those bitches ain’t got nothing to do but sit around and hate. Tell me 1 good thing 1 mill moms has ever done.

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 2:37pm
  19. They haven’t seen what they’re against, and already they’re against it.

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 2:38pm
  20. Bored housewives with nothing to do but be bigots. How charming.

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 2:43pm
  21. I’m glad, it’ll give the show a ratings boost for the first episode. And if it’s any good it’ll stick around.

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 2:44pm
  22. Those dumb ass bitches dont even know really what it is and yet there trying to get it off the air…people now a days are so closed minded and stupid

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 2:44pm
  23. These crazy bitches would say that The Brady Bunch encourages divorce, and maybe pseudo incest! Nobody wondered where the Brady kids came from. Their biological parental pears were missing too. It is plain to see these people, OMM, simply hate gay folks.

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 2:45pm
  24. these women have too much time on their hands!!!! go have an orgasm and deal with the reality that 10% (at least) that’s 1 out of 10 (for those moms that find math hard) of your kids may be different than you are when it comes to orientation… so hugs crazy people… you are the keeper of the new generation instead of hating let them know its okay to be who they are and that you still LOVE them

  25. one million bullets should do the trick.

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 3:01pm
  26. I completely agree with everyone on here this show sounds amazing and also do these so called omm not know that the biggest and most often mentioned sin in the bible is lying they need to calm it down a bit and let the preachers preach and also how could this show not be family oriented maybe it will teach some of these little children to not bully those who are different

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 3:01pm
  27. Thank you for posting this! I have been on there site and have been reporting it as abusive. How dare they say they believe in god when they break one of his commandments “Thou shalt not judge” and treat this beautiful family like this. It’s disgusting. *hugs* Thank you so much. :)

  28. I’m pretty sure OMM is headed by a guy or there’s guy in charge of their press releases which to me defeats the purpose of OMM since it should be called One million moms plus this guy.

  29. I wish ABC would do a sitcom on a Christian Extremist family. They could get Michele Bachmann after the elections as she will need to look for a new job. Although she is funny in their own but scary as it is true in her case. Instead of the Bunker’s for All in the Family it will be the Bachmann’s. A Christian Extremist wife and a repressed gay husband.

  30. A few heterosexual moms calling themselves one million and believing there love for a child the only real love or “god-given” is a load!

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 3:18pm
  31. Would someone please show those hateful cows how to change the channel on their TVs?

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 3:25pm
  32. I really really wish they would just shut the hell up and sit down. They are just perpetuating hate and need to be muzzled. I could care less what they think and have to say. I think to each is own. And I personally believe that if a girl loves another girl then that is her right to do so and that all love is beautiful.

  33. One million moms and half of them are closeted lesbians dying to get out!

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 3:31pm
  34. I knew we loved ABC for a reason! :)

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 3:51pm
  35. And the joke lives on! One Million Moms!

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 4:19pm
  36. Most people believe that there should be truth in advertising. So isn’t “Thirty Thousand Moms” closer to the truth?

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 4:31pm
  40. Geez do these women have anything useful and better to do? If they are MOMS I would think they are busy with their kids. All the moms I know barely have time to brush their own hair as they are busy with IMPORTANT things, things that REALLY matter.

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 4:47pm
  41. These are the same people who complain about all of these shows on TV and yet don’t use the v-chip that they probably fought for decades before. Use the V-CHIP ! It will solve your problem. :)

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 5:30pm
  42. These are probably the same people who protested Harry Potter for “promoting” witchcraft. Idiots. The lot of them.

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 7:37pm
  43. So tired of hearing them call themselves “one million moms” when there is nowhere near that many of them!!!! Seems they should be taking math class instead of watching ANYTHING on television!!!!!!!

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 8:51pm
  44. These women are crazy. Stay out of LGBT Community. We don’t want you!

    Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 11:48pm
  45. yeah, let’s have some transparency here…I want to see the list of one million moms or they should change their name to the 25,469 moms. they are entitled to their opinions, but, please, dont try to ram it down our throats.
