Oh no! Ellen DeGeneres mentioned One Million Moms, an affiliate of the hate group the American Family Association, because she mentioned them on her show. Of course, OMM had to respond. They are, after all, pretty upset over the whole thing. JC Penney’s has made it clear that they are not backing down on choosing DeGeneres as their spokeswoman.
So, in an email blast, they wrote:
If you haven’t already heard, Ellen DeGeneres mentioned One Million Moms on her television show yesterday with a few hand-picked Facebook comments that supported her of course. Watch the video of her show to see how she validates all of OMM’s concerns about the J.C. Penney decision. She starts with celebrating California’s Prop 8 decision that came Tuesday, February 7, 2012, against traditional marriage, and then goes after OMM in a rant. For those who are not aware, Prop 8 bans same-sex marriage, but unfortunately the Appeals Court ruled earlier this week that it was unconstitutional. If something is legal it doesn’t make it morally right. What it boils down to is agenda.
Of course, OMM would know about how something being legal not making it morally correct given that they push hatred and are part of a group that actively uses hatred, lies and attacks on every minority under the sun including many Christians who do not agree with them. While hate speech is legally allowed, it is certainly not morally correct to say that Native Americans deserved to be slaughtered, or Blacks deserved to be enslaved. The AFA, of which OMM is an affiliate, have said those things in the past.
They went on to say:
OMM appreciates your support for our agenda – standing up for Biblical values. As Christians we know God says homosexuality is a sin (Romans 1:26-27), like adultery, fornication, and other sexual sins. Ellen is attempting to indoctrinate our children.
And yet, adultery and fornication are legal. It should also be noted that children cannot be indoctrinated into being lesbian or gay since science has shown sexuality to be inherent. Even the Roman Catholic Church has admitted that homosexuality is inherent even if they believe it is wrong. Of course, that is a problem given that homosexuality is inherent. That is like demanding that a Black person stop being Black just because it is considered morally impure. Oh that is right, at one point, being Black was seen as being automatically immoral.
Oh, and it is nice to see that they admit that they have an agenda.
In today’s culture when an individual stands up for what they believe in and someone disagrees with them then they are referred to as a hater when in reality it is OMM’s opponents who are hating us. Tolerance does go both ways. Apparently, OMM must be doing something right because scripture says that we will be persecuted for our Biblical beliefs (Matthew 5:11). Our voice is being heard! The Word also says that Jesus told his disciples that they would be hated because He was hated first (John 15:18). OMM will remain strong because we are to be the salt and light.
There is, of course, a difference between disagreeing based upon something factual and relying solely upon someone’s religion given that religious beliefs are not universal. What is more, when someone has to rely upon lies in order to spread their agenda, they are easily someone who hates. If they actually had any facts to support their beliefs that do not rely upon their religious beliefs, then they would use them. Instead, they rely upon lies about how children are hurt by homosexuality even when it has been shown to be incorrect time and time again. They rely upon claiming that children raised by lesbians and gays are harmed, even though the evidence shows that they are incorrect on that front too.
And finally, they wrote:
OMM has hundreds of thousands of supporters joining together for what is right. Yes, OMM will have its critics, but remember Godly principles validate our stand. OMM is growing everyday and has gained new supporters over this past week. There is strength in numbers! It is our responsibility as parents to do everything in our power to protect our children from being misled and desensitized.
OMM plans to cover other issues in the near future, but we will not change our stance on Ellen becoming the new spokesperson for JC Penney. OMM will not back down or give in to pressure from the media.
Hundreds of thousands. . .hundreds of thousands. . .Ellen’s show brings in 2.4 million viewers every day. Guess who people are listening to more.
