One Million Moms’ latest missive, about a week late we might add, going after The New Normal seems to be the usual mixture of self-delusion and contrite bullying. They even announce that they “will continue our attempts to have this program canceled because it goes against Biblical principles and Christian values.”
It is rather obvious that Biblical principles and Christian values include forcing opinions on others, bullying them until they relent, and mentally torturing people since this is what One Million Moms love to do.
OMM states that:
Last week’s episode of “The New Normal” referenced One Million Moms. Even though they attempted to poke fun, the show actually made One Million Moms look good. The conservative grandmother chose three girls who are raised in traditional families who share the same beliefs she does to help her cancel her granddaughter’s fake wedding. She tells them, “I need the help of every one of you future One Million Moms.” By the way, thanks for the free publicity!
Any conservatives that may have briefly checked out the show primarily to see how bad it is who have never heard of One Million Moms just found out about our organization on their dime. If the writers thought this would get us off their backs they are sadly mistaken.
The grandmother does misrepresent conservatives at times since her character is not consistent in her actions, but focusing on last night’s episode she was pretty accurate. She stated marriage is sacred and between one man and one woman. She was upset that her granddaughter was having a “real” pretend wedding. They didn’t actually go through with it when the nine-year-old girl found out the ten-year-old boy had cheated on her the day before by kissing another girl.
The grandmother is not pleased with the pretend wedding and says that marriage is not for children or homosexuals; next it will be for dogs. She does make the statements that, “Marriage is a sacred vow. Marriage must be kept sacred. Homosexuals are trying to redefine marriage. Marriage is to be taken seriously.”
Perhaps the most obvious and telling statement comes from when OMM states “One Million Moms continues to discourage our supporters from watching the program to insure we do not help the show’s ratings.”
A long time ago, the Catholic Church hid away and even destroyed books in order to prevent people from reading them and learning. Umberto Eco wrote in The Name of the Rose that the Inquisitor’s biggest fear was that “Laughter kills fear, and without fear there can be no faith, because without fear of the Devil there is no more need of God. . .No, to be sure, laughter will remain the common man’s recreation. But what will happen if, because of this book, learned men were to pronounce it admissable to laugh at everything? Can we laugh at God? The world would relapse into chaos!”
That is what One Million Moms fears. They fear laughter. They fear knowledge. For in those humans can learn to think and when they think their chains are broken.
One Million Moms doesn’t want their people watching because they are afraid that their ridiculousness will be laughed at.
