Conservative Group Labels NBC Sitcom as "Damaging to Our Culture"

by at . Comments

There are television shows about families with 19 kids. And television shows about teenage mothers. There's even one that features strange addictions such as eating laundry detergent.

Yet One Million Moms - a conservative group that went after JC Penney after it hired Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson - believes an upcoming NBC sitcom titled The New Normal is "attempting to desensitize America and our children" because it centers on a gay couple and a surrogate.

The series stars Justin Bartha and Andrew Rannells as partner looking to adopt. That's the entire premise. And this is the statement One Million Moms has released in response to it:

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. These things are harmful to our society, and this program is damaging to our culture. Millions of Americans strongly believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman.

As for the millions of Americans who believe marriage should be between any two people in love and/or don't believe that their beliefs ought to dictate the airwaves?

The organization appears to have no comment.

These women are usually two kinds of moms; one, usually stay at home moms have nothing better to do with time or two, rich mom with nannys that raises their kids for them. My thing is monitor what you kids watch instead of allowing the world to monitor them for you. Their is an audience for every show. Its not fair to cancel someones fun because you are to uninvolved, busy to raise yours or to bored with with your lives.
