The group One Million Moms has called for a boycott of the ABC Family Channel over an allegedly “anti-family” show being produced by singer Jennifer Lopez.
“Obviously, ABC has lost their minds,” the group said in a statement. “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.”
ABC’s The Fosters is a hour-long drama about two mothers raising a mix of foster and biological kids.
One Million Moms said that adoption was “wonderful” but accused the show of “attempting to redefine marriage.”
The organization, which is a part of the American Family Association, urged its members to boycott the show and ABC Family’s sponsors. They hope to stop the show “dead in it its tracks.”
One Million Moms has launched numerous campaign against companies that it claims violated their interpretation of Biblical teaching.
“Hollywood is continuing to push an agenda that homosexuality is acceptable when scripture states clearly it is a sin,” the group explained.
Earlier this year, the group launched a campaign against JC Penney for the store using popular and openly gay talk show host Ellen DeGeneres as their spokesperson. But when JC Penney refused to back down, One Million Moms announced it was moving on to other issues.
