It should not be surprising that One Million Moms is going ballistic over the final three episodes of “Good Luck Charlie.” The show which comes to an end early next month will have an episode featuring a child with two moms, and according to One Million Moms “If “Good Luck Charlie” goes through with introducing LGBT content, then the floodgates will be opened for all programs on the Disney Channel – a trend that will be almost impossible to stop.”
Actually, it may already be impossible to stop. The episodes were filmed last year, and it is doubtful that, with a week to go until the next episode, and two weeks until the end of the series, that Disney would refilm the episode just to appease One Million Moms.
Not to mention the fact that the attempts to boycott shows like Pretty Little Liars on the Disney-owned ABC Family have fallen incredibly short, and the attempt to scuttle The Fosters has also flopped.
One Million Moms notes that:
Disney Channel has very few sponsors and advertisers on its network. Care.com was the only Disney Channel sponsor that was promoted during the January 19, 2014, newest episode of “Good Luck Charlie.” Care.com often sponsors programs on the Disney network.
An upcoming episode in this last season of “Good Luck Charlie” will feature a family with two moms, a first for Disney Channel. Because “Good Luck Charlie” is coming to a close, the characters are only expected to appear in one episode. However, one episode is enough, especially since the network repeatedly airs reruns of all its programs.
One Million Moms launched an email campaign in 2013 that urged Disney officials to abandon their plans to corrupt the children’s network with LGBT content. However, Disney officials have not responded to the thousands of emails protesting their plans. Disney has decided to be politically correct instead of providing family-friendly programming. Disney should stick to entertaining, not pushing an agenda.
Conservative families need to urge Disney to avoid controversial topics that children are far too young to comprehend. This is the last place a parent would expect their children to be confronted with topics that are too difficult for them to understand. Mature issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, and it is extremely unnecessary.
You will note the ‘thousands of emails’. . .compared to the approximately 3 million viewers the show gets routinely. Basically, even if OMM managed to get 100,000 emails to Disney, there would still be thirty times the number of people watching the show as bothered to email Disney. Part of this has to do with the fact that Disney has long been persona non grata with the Conservative movement.
