J.Lo’s New Series Bashed by Anti-Gay Group
Jennifer Lopez stays in headlines…
A television series about a couple raising a rainbow family of their biological kids plus foster children sounds as warm and fuzzy as it gets. Isn’t that like a modern version of “The Brady Bunch?”
Except there’s one big difference—on this series, both parents are women, and they’re lesbians. That’s why notorious anti-gay group One Million Moms is upset about “The Fosters,” a new series in development for the ABC Family Channel by Jennifer Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions.
The group, which has previously targeted the JC Penney chain for hiring Ellen DeGeneres as its spokesperson, has called “The Fosters” “anti-family.”
Apparently the organization, which has more like 40,000 members than a million, doesn’t consider a “multi-ethnic mix of foster and biological kids” to be a “real” family.
Here’s what One Million Moms says on the group’s issues action page: “Hollywood is continuing to push an agenda that homosexuality is acceptable when scripture states clearly it is a sin. As Christians, the Bible also says that we must speak up against sin. If we remain silent then we are guilty of sin also.”
Remaining silent isn’t likely for this group, which seems to always find something to get riled up about.
The group claims it has no problem with fostering or adoption, stating, “foster care and adoption is a wonderful thing and the Bible does teach us to help orphans,” but adding, “this program is attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together.”
It sounds like this family is a bit too “diverse” for One Million Moms, who appear to have no problem with sending the message to the children adopted into multi-ethnic families that their family isn’t as good as those lily-white suburban clans from the TV shows of the ’50s.
