One Million Moms loves, just loves, to pretend that they can actually get something pulled off the air so that the schmucks who buy their propaganda will donate lots of money to them so that they can continue to live a nice cushy life away from any kind of actual heavy lifting or actual work. OMM’s latest kvetch is ABC’s “Mistresses”. Of course, they’ve already griped about “The Fosters”, but that was expected.
They can’t stand the idea of a lesbian drama that is a lot more on real life and a lot less on sex.
OMM’s latest, though, goes after a show that they liken to a revamped “Desperate Housewives.” Apparently the plot revolves around four friends and the web of lives they weave around themselves while looking for love. The show is based off of a British TV show of the same name. I have no doubt that OMM would have been furious about “Coupling”.
Yep, it’s a classic soap opera. Not something I’m interested in, but expect that people will watch it. Still OMM put out this missive:
The tagline for the program is: “Attraction. Passion. Deception. I can’t help it.” Advertisements mention “Endless possibilities,” “Thirteen weeks of seduction” and “Who have you been doing?” One character even gets involved with another woman. A show full of adultery, cheating and lies is the last influence our society needs. Even though the program airs a little later in the evening, it is not late enough since the bedroom scenes are completely soft p*rn.

One Million Moms will be as persistent as we were with ABC’s “Good Christian Belles” in asking sponsors to pull their financial support. We had proof this works when “GCB” was canceled after only one season.
Hollywood is continuing to push casual s*x as 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, we are accepting it and are guilty of sin also. One Million Moms is determined to clean up broadcast airwaves.
Oy vey, they can’t even say the word ‘sex’. As for their “proof” regarding “GCB”, the ratings were pretty abysmal on that show, and that is why it got the kibosh. “The New Normal” had the same problem. The fact that they have continuously claimed victory over specific shows despite the show not doing well in the ratings just shows how desperate they are for money…sorry…attention…sorry again…moral viewing options. Of course, they could just not watch the show, and maybe just stop trying to immorally force everyone to fall lock step behind them. Then again, “Mistresses” is just the kind of show that they probably watch religiously while jotting down notes about how they hate the show vehemently.
