It’s a gloomy day for the pop diva and progressive thinkers everywhere...
Just moments into her newest creative venue, executive producing television series “The Fosters,” Jennifer Lopez is facing a giant, throbbing obstacle of activist hate. One Million Moms, an online community focused on the entertainment industry, is urging its supporters to ban together against the series in its infancy.
In a post on the One Million Moms website, the group narrows in on the ABC network specifically.
"Obviously, ABC has lost their minds,” the post reads. “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.”
The organization’s main beef in the post is J.Lo’s show that follows a lesbian couple – played by Teri Polo of “The West Wing” and Sherri Saum of “Rescue Me” – as they raise a mixed family of biological multi-ethnic foster kids.
“The Fosters” is produced by J.Lo’s company Nuyorican Productions and has already been picked up for a pilot by ABC, which is known for their critically acclaimed pro-gay series “Modern Family.”
And, rather than just turning the channel or having their kids read a book instead, One Million Moms would much rather dust off their pitch forks and raise a big stink.
"While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing .... this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together" the post continues. "None of this material is acceptable content for a family show."
One Million Moms claims to be a Christian-based organization, speaking out against gay relationships that the Bible “states clearly” as sin.
But “The Fosters” shouldn’t feel too upset as there’s plenty of company in the shun… Other topics excluded from their shrinking pigeonhole of approved cultural features include “The New Normal,” “666 Park Avenue,” Skittles candy, Urban Outfitters, Sears, Oreos, Gay Superheroes, “The B- in Apt. 23,” Macy’s, The Kardashians and “The Client List”…
