The new face of sin?

The New Civil Rights Movement reports that hate group One Million Moms have released a press release stating that they want ABC’s The Muppets taken off the air for indecency, claiming that they are the new face of sin:

“1MM suspects there are going to be a lot of shocked moms and dads when they discover that the family-friendly Muppets of the 1970s are no more. It appears that no subject is off limits…

“The new show is aimed at a mature, modern audience and addresses subjects not suitable for family viewing…”

Alluding to advertisements that feature Kermit The Frog and copy reading, “Finally, a network TV show with full frontal nudity,” the press release asserts that “technically, the advertisement is correct — seeing how Kermit doesn’t wear pants.”

The press release continues:

“The mature version of The Muppets will cover a range of topics from sex to drugs… Miss Piggy came out as a pro-choice feminist during an MSNBC interview. The puppet characters loved by kids in the 1970s and 1980s and beyond are now weighing in on abortion and promiscuity…”

In more Muppet-related news, Frankin Graham — son of evangelist Billy Graham — has also come out against the puppets, claiming they “promote sin.”

The New Civil Rights Movement reports that the evangelist recently proclaimed:

“It sounds to me like the whole show should be off limits! Hollywood seems to be in a frenzy to see what new moral low they can reach in their programming…. The Bible says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.’ That goes for Kermit the Frog as well!”
