By now, everyone knows that ABC has bought the series pilot for Jennifer Lopez’ new dramedy about a lesbian couple and their children. Of course, this family friendly series is being portrayed as being “anti-family” by One Million Moms, but more about that in a minute.
Recently, One Million Moms have been on a campaign to try and get rid of every show on television that they disagree with because, hey, freedom is only right for them not the rest of us. Since their founding, they have managed to only take out one show, and claimed victory in the case of another despite the fact that GCB had low ratings.
Now they are trying to get rid of Lopez’ show. They stated:
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.
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.
ABC Family knows their core audience isn’t the Christian Community any more, and that even those within the Christian Community who are as hateful as OMM are a small percentage of the audience that they will bring in. Part of the problem is that most TV shows on cable networks get by with lower ratings than do shows on network televison. For instance, ABC Family’s top rated show is Pretty Little Liars. The show gets a top rating of about 3 million viewers. This is despite protests and attempts to derail the show over having a lesbian character.
In truth, OMM is never going to be effective, and they know it. They just want money. A lot of nonprofits out there are being used in order to make their owners very, very rich.
