One Million Moms Flip Out Over Lesbian Family Drama, 'The Fosters'

The One Million Moms comedy hour continues.  The Moms got quite heated this week (probably the onset of menopause) when ABC Family debuted its new series, The Fosters (brought to us by Jennifer Lopez).  The show centers around a lesbian couple raising a family of biological and foster children. 

The horror.

The Moms hate it and they're making their feelings known in this latest call-to-action post. They write:

ABC Family Channel has several anti-family programs and has now added to that growing list. ABC Family's new show "The Fosters" is about a lesbian couple and their diverse family. Adding this program to a lineup that already includes "Pretty Little Liars," "Twisted," "Baby Daddy" and "The Lying Game" many demonstrates to families that ABC Family Channel is anything but family-friendly. But, because "family" is part of the network's name, we thought a warning should be sent out to anyone who continues to watch the channel. The premiere was aired this week and will continue to be aired several more times, according to the following schedule:

Friday, 6/7 at 12a/11c

Sunday, 6/9 at 7a/6c

Sunday, 6/9 at 11p/10c

Saturday, 6/15 at 8a/7c

Saturday, 6/15 at 11p/10c

New episodes will air on Monday evenings at 9:00pm ET/8:00pm CT. In addition, frequent promos are airing for this new series. Families should avoid the network completely; otherwise, you run the risk of viewing a commercial for this new, offensive program.

ABC Family's show "The Fosters" is about two women raising a multi-ethnic mix of foster and biological kids. While foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing and the Bible does teach us to help orphans, this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together. Unacceptable content in the first episode included one foster child as an inmate in a juvenile detention center, sneaking and selling prescription drugs to earn money, a lesbian couple kissing on the mouth and snuggling in bed together, mentioning they are gay multiple times and purchasing condoms for their eldest son.

The ratings for this program are 14 DLV - which you would assume means it is suitable for 14-year-olds - but keep in mind this is the same rating "Family Guy" receives, which obviously is not appropriate for a "family" network.


Honestly, this reads more like a promo for the show than an indictment.  Thanks for the show's schedule, by the way!
