Back in February, the conservative group One Million Moms (Facebook membership: 48,488), famously called for a boycott of JC Penney’s for choosing Worlds-Most-Likable-Person Ellen DeGeneres as their spokeswoman. Why? Because she is a scary, icky lesbian, of course! Of course, their plan totally backfired in their bigoted faces.
Since then, they have also leveled their teeny, tiny sword of influence at Oreos (*yawn*) and now they have found something new to annoy us with!
This fall, NBC is debuting a new show called “The New Normal” about a single mom who has agreed to be a surrogate for a gay couple.
I shall give you a moment to swoon and clutch your pearls.
“But Jessica!” you are surely saying, “How dare evil NBC tell the stories of people who don’t conform to our antiquated views on how a family should be!? Sure, show after show features pre-marital sex, couples living together in sin, and, you know, murder…but this! This crosses the line! A committed gay couple who desire to have the life-changing experience of raising a child? The nerve! The very nerve!”Take it easy, fake reader, you have someone to champion your silly beliefs! Once again, One Million Moms (Twitter follower-ship: 1,849), our favorite moral watch-Chihuahua, is standing up for you!
NBC is using public airwaves to continue to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and the sanctity of marriage in attempting to redefine marriage. These things are harmful to our society, and this program is damaging to our culture.
Millions of Americans strongly believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman. NBC’s “The New Normal” is attempting to desensitize America and our children.It is the opposite of how families are designed and created. You cannot recreate the biological wheel.
I mean, you kind of have to respect their tenacity. OMM (as in “OMM Nom Nom”) seems to have very little success, but they just keep plugging along.
And actually… the show looks kind of cute.
