One Million Moms vs The New Normal
I'm entirely convinced that if you went into a darkened, candlelit room and said "gay" into a mirror three times, the leader of One Million Moms would pop out of the mirror and try to claw out your eyes. I haven't actually tested this out because I don't want to die, but still, I have anecdotal evidence! Sorta!
A couple days ago, I told you guys about how a TV station in Utah was refusing to air The New Normal, due to the fact that it is about a gay couple hiring a surrogate to carry their child. And if there's one thing One Million Moms hates more than their inability to understand how much "one million" is, it's non-traditional families, and any show that acknowledges their existence is an affront against god.
Cole proceeded to slam the show for "[continuing] to attack Christian values, conservative values, the traditional family...you cannot recreate the biological will." The criticism comes just days after a Mormon-owned NBC Utah affiliate announced it was yanking "The New Normal" from its fall lineup for its "explicit" and "offensive" content.
Still, Cole's remarks are hardly surprising. In 2011, One Million Moms condemned "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy for being an "open homosexual" and for "pushing political correctness and his lifestyle choice on teens" via his hit television series, Right Wing Watch reported. Defending his show as "a discussion of tolerance," Murphy has said, "Actually, if they watched it, I think they would like it." [via HuffPo]
Once again, if you're actually confident in who you are and what you believe in, what other people believe or who they are shouldn't threaten you. At all. And if your entire life revolves around what other people do, you may want to go over the choices that got you where you are and maybe reconsider a few things.
