The New Normal: Group of moms boycott new pro-homosexual TV show

July 24, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A pro-family group is calling on citizens to boycott a new NBC television series focusing on a gay couple who obtain a surrogate to have a baby.

One Million Moms, a group of mothers affiliated with American Family Association, says The New Normal, which premieres Sept. 11th, is “attempting to desensitize America and our children.”

The show features an unwed mother who offers to be a surrogate for a homosexual couple to make money for law school, a plan she postponed when she found out she was pregnant with her now 8-year-old daughter. In the trailer, the woman’s grandmother is portrayed as a racist, anti-gay, southern conservative Christian who implies that she would have aborted her daughter if she had realized she was pregnant soon enough.

The trailer depicts the homosexual couple asking the woman if she has problem being a surrogate for two men. She responds saying, “A family is a family; love is love.”

A recent study found that children raised by homosexual couples have a higher incidence of contemplating suicide, suffering sexual assault, and being unemployed.

One Million Moms (OMM) says the image of family life portrayed in the show “is the opposite of how families are designed and created. You cannot recreate the biological wheel.”

“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,” says OMM. “These things are harmful to our society, and this program is damaging to our culture.”

OMM is asking supporters to email NBC asking them not to air the show, and telling NBC that their family will not be watching the show.

The pro-family organization has had a part in the cancellation of other shows and advertisements in the past, including The Playboy Club, Skins, and a JC Penney commercial which used sex to sell men’s clothing.

Queers to right of us, queers to the left of us! We're surrounded, thanks to the sodomite media and the sycophantic politicians and their thousands of staffers. Time to remake America. This is the 'reset' button that has to be hit!

I wonder how they feel after Ellen Barkin was foaming at the mouth the other day on Twitter calling conservatives f*cking morons.

Gee, I didn’t know NBC was still in business. We live and learn. It’s fun to see the look on the face of someone who asks me what I thought of “Last night’s American Idol” and I answer, “What is that?” I don’t even know what network it is on, but I love the unbelieving look.

attempting to desensitize America and our children...
Too late. Everything today is acceptable. Nothing is shocking anymore. We are so doomed. Prayers for all Godfearing Americans.

Unfortunately the Million Moms will be outnumbered by all the liberals and the rainbow advocates.

There needs to be an even bigger push-back against all of this, and maybe as it gets worse and worse this will be in the offing. I hope so.

Don’t let the 5% get you down!! IF Christian families have meals together and daily devotionals everything could change instantly. Also, turn off the TV and don’t let your children watch the rot on it. Go play ball outdoors until they are tired, etc. Make a list of all the GREAT and GOOD things to do and put it near the remote!

What was really a sad thing about the movie deaths is that a 6 year old died. What is even more sad is that her mom took her to such a violent movie at midnight. That press should be a wake up call and shouted across this great land!

Praising GOD from whom ALL blessings FLOW!!

It’s difficult to comprehend how TV could slide any further into the societal gutter than it already has, but we can always count on ABCCBSNBC to step up to the plate.

My boycott won’t do any good. I’ve been doing it since 1997.

One show I will definitely be missing. I give it two weeks max.

A television program of today entitled Leave it to Beaver wouldn't be about a precocious 12 year old boy and his all-American family.
