Dollar Shave Club (dollarshaveclub.com) was the major advertiser who paid corporate dollars to promote products in association with the content of the program.</p> In our campaign concerning the program "Black Jesus," none of the sponsors 1MM contacted returned for either airing of the most recent episode. Supporters of both 1MM and parent ministry AFA contacted Hydroxycut (Iovate Health Sciences) and K12.COM/free, and after the joint effort neither company advertised during the past "Black Jesus."

An email from Vito Sanzone, chief marketing officer for Hydroxycut, acknowledged the campaigns from AFA divisions of 1MM and AFA Action. "We are thankful to the American Family Association for bringing this program to our attention," the email read. "We have instructed our media agency to withdraw all advertising from this program permanently. We appreciate the AFA's voice in matters like this and applaud your members for the valuable input."

The past episode of "Black Jesus" aired during two timeslots, but the dwindling number of sponsors shows few companies want to be associated with this program.

TAKE ACTION                                                                        

Contact the company who sponsored TBS's anti-Christian "Black Jesus." Dollar Shave Club (dollarshaveclub.com) was the major advertiser who paid corporate dollars to promote products in association with the content of the program.

Let this company know that their advertising dollars are supporting bigotry and animosity toward people of faith. We've got an email ready for you!

Contact Sponsors of 'Satisfaction' Again <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Satisfaction." The sponsors are: Booking.com, Fingerhut.com, Subaru, KFC (YUM Brands) and Target.</p> Dyson, Jaguar and State Farm pulled their ads from the inappropriate (USA) program "Satisfaction." After One Million Moms contacted these sponsors in our previous campaign, they decided to no longer sponsor "Satisfaction." Their ads have not been present in the last several episodes.

USA's new program, "Satisfaction," has a name that says it all. I suppose the name "Unsatisfied" didn't sound as attractive. Like a revamped soap opera, spouses get themselves tangled in a web of lies and hurt the ones they love. "Satisfaction" airs on Thursday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. CT.

The tagline for the program is: "They have everything but are still not satisfied." The show focuses on attempts to find satisfaction by having an affair, paying for an escort or getting paid for sex. A show full of adultery, cheating, drugs and lies is the last influence our society needs. Even though the program airs a little later in the evening, it is not late enough since the bedroom scenes are soft porn and the previews are aired earlier in the day.

"Satisfaction" centers around a married couple who have no regrets and feel no remorse about committing adultery with someone else - or cheating on their own spouse. Infidelity is the new trend sold as normal by USA.

To put it on a scale, "Satisfaction" is more pornographic than the show "Mistresses." This program consists of so much nudity and erotic sexual content that it probably is the worst show we have seen since "Nip Tuck." Hollywood is continuing to push casual sex, sometimes with multiple partners, as acceptable.

Take Action

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Satisfaction." The sponsors are: Booking.com, Fingerhut.com, Subaru, KFC (YUM Brands) and Target.

Urge advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list in protest of pushing sin directly into America's living rooms.

Levi's Tasteless Commercial <p>Please send Levi Strauss &amp; Co. an email letter urging them to no longer air offensive commercials and to pull their newest "Live in Levi's" ad immediately.</p> In the newest "Live in Levi's" commercial, there are many suggestions of what you can do in your Levi jeans. The ad states consumers can do many things in their Levi's. For several reasons this Levi commercial is distasteful and sends youth the wrong message. 

Many have found the "unbutton them" and "button them" segment highly inappropriate. The scene shows a couple making out leading up to a sexual encounter. The female begins unbuttoning the male's jeans until their young daughter walks in on them and the male quickly buttons back up his jeans.

There are a few other offenses during this commercial including a water drenched man air drying his jeans from a public bus window while wearing his underwear, along with the statement you can "wash them or not." Then there is a "roll them" reference, with a couple rolling on top of one another while wearing their jeans.

Levi Strauss & Co. is being irresponsible in their new advertising campaign, especially since it is aired as early as 6:30 pm when families are likely watching. This advertisement is harming children in the name of humor.

TAKE ACTION

Please send Levi Strauss & Co. an email letter urging them to no longer air offensive commercials and to pull their newest "Live in Levi's" ad immediately.

Uni-ball Coupon Ad Offends Customers <p>Send Uni-ball (owned by Newell Rubbermaid) an email letter and urge them to no longer produce marketing campaigns that cross the line and to stop circulating the newest "Please go to H*ll" coupon ad immediately.</p> Shame on Uni-ball for using inappropriate language in a new coupon ad currently being distributed in newspapers. The caption states, "Always send the right message." An image shows a handwritten note that says, "Welcome to the office," and then "Please go to Hell."

Spilt liquid hides the remainder of the note, but it is obvious what the company is implying. They make sure there is no doubt of their intentions in pushing the limits.

Uni-ball's print ad is irresponsible and offensive. We all know children repeat what they read and hear.  It is extremely damaging to impressionable children - not to mention adults - who will be exposed to this profanity. This ad is not only extremely detrimental to our society, but also serious to Christians who do not desire for anyone to go to H*ll, a real place of eternal misery.

TAKE ACTION

Send Uni-ball (owned by Newell Rubbermaid) an email letter and urge them to no longer produce marketing campaigns that cross the line and to stop circulating the newest "Please go to H*ll" coupon ad immediately.

Hardee's and Carl's Jr. - Enough <p>1MM has attempted to contact CKE Restaurants (Hardee's and Carl's Jr.) by email, but our last email campaign was put to a halt after they began blocking our emails. We are asking you to take this one step further and do this the "old-fashioned way" and make a phone call expressing your disgust.</p> Will Hardee's and Carl's Jr. ever learn? They are at it again with another disgusting ad. Their newest Texas BBQ Thickburger commercial focuses on the model's sweaty chest and legs with several suggestive shots. This ad is extremely degrading to women and should be pulled off the air immediately.

Not long after One Million Moms contacted the company about its advertisement starring Kate Upton making out with a burger at a drive-in movie wearing only skimpy lingerie, the company aired three different commercials all with the same theme. The restaurant is using sex to sell its burgers with scantily-clad models licking sauce seductively in provocative poses. 1MM has had enough with their soft porn ads! We will politely, but sternly let them know that we are not giving up on protecting our families.

There is strength in numbers so be sure to send this to everyone you know! 1MM will remain consistent and dedicated, especially with companies that seem not to budge, which means we need EVERYONE'S help in taking action!

Hardee's and Carl's Jr. (both owned by CKE Restaurants) in review:

(1) CKE Restaurants is a hamburger business catering to families yet it has consistently used sex to sell its product.

(2) In 2003, Hardee's (Carl's Jr.) featured Hugh Hefner as a poster celebrity.

(3) Hardee's used an erotic ad featuring a mechanical bull and a scantily clad female.

(4) In 2005, Hardee's used a pornographic ad with Paris Hilton using sleazy movements to sell burgers.

(5) In 2009, Hardee's featured their new "Biscuit holes." In the ad, various customers individually name them using such verbiage as B holes, A holes, dingle balls, and biscatles (as in testicles).

(6) In 2009, Carl's Jr. has just launched its newest in a series of raunchy sex-laden ads.

TAKE ACTION:

1MM has attempted to contact CKE Restaurants (Hardee's and Carl's Jr.) by email, but our last email campaign was put to a halt after they began blocking our emails. We are asking you to take this one step further and do this the "old-fashioned way" and make a phone call expressing your disgust.

Suggested talking points:

"Your advertising continues to offend me and my family.  You have shown no respect for common decency, values or women. If you continue to advertise in this manner and refuse to remove your recent ad, my family will no longer eat in your restaurants. I also plan on telling everyone I know never to visit your restaurant again unless you pull the Texas BBQ Thickburger ad off the air and remove it from your website immediately!

In the past, your reply has been that men are your target market, but women, especially moms, make the majority of meal decisions. Not to mention a majority of the men you are "targeting" have wives and daughters which they love and respect and are offended by your advertising choice that is degrading to women. These fathers also have sons they do not want exposed to your sexually explicit content that is considered soft porn by many families."

Number to call:

CKE Consumer Relations Dept. -  1-800-422-4141 (Press 0 for the operator & ask for guest response line. Then press 1 for TV ads. They are keeping up with complaints and will report back to their marketing department. You will have the option to leave your information similar to our email campaigns.)

I also encourage you to call your local Hardee's and Carl's Jr. Franchise immediately! Ask them to use their influence to stop the offensive ads.

Contact Sponsors of 'Black Jesus' <p>Contact the companies who actually sponsored TBS's anti-Christian "Black Jesus." Foot Locker, AutoTrader.com, Haribo Candy and Radio Shack were the major advertisers who paid corporate dollars to promote its products in association with the content of the program.</p> 1MM was Heard Loud and Clear!

Update:

Victory! American Eagle Outfitters heard you loud and clear and pulled their support from the "Black Jesus" program! Here is American Eagle's quick response:

Dear One Million Moms,

Thank you for expressing your concerns. American Eagle Outfitters does not support or affiliate ourselves with messaging of the show Black Jesus and have pulled our spots from their particular broadcast times. Advertising during this show was an oversight on our part and we sincerely apologize for any offense this may have caused.

Thank you,

Kayt Pritts

American Eagle Outfitters

Associate Manager, Communications

One Million Moms has thanked them on behalf of all of our supporters for their quick response and for their cooperation. One Million Moms appreciates that they listened to our concerns and will no longer sponsor this inappropriate program "Black Jesus." No further action is needed.

After recent victories, a few of our supporters have expressed they would like to send out a thank you email when a company responds positively to our concern. We encourage you to visit the company website and send your comments through their "Contact Us" form. Companies have this setup for this very reason and can review comments at their convenience. One Million Moms feels that after a company has met our request, we can show our support by giving these companies more of our business. We can confidently patronize companies that support family values. Sending out mass emails two weeks in a row could slow down productivity in their offices.


Your voice was heard once again!

You are making a HUGE difference!

Original Alert:

Religious mockery, blasphemy and extreme profanity, all directed at the Christian faith flooded the airwaves last night. Turner Broadcasting System (TBS) did not hold back its disdain for Jesus, as TBS's Cartoon Network delivered on its promise to be offensive and vile.

"Black Jesus" was even worse than its promotions portrayed in the trailer leading up to the broadcast. In the 30-minute premiere, Jesus is recruited by his friend's mother to buy a block of "weed" for a party. He is the "only one" she trusts with the $2,000 she gets as her tax-refund check.

When the drug deal goes bad, his friends riding in the car with him abandon him and escape police, while Jesus is arrested. In the end, he is released from prison when the marijuana miraculously turns out to be salad greens.

In this episode entitled "Smokin', Drinkin', and Chillin'":

•             88 profanities are used, including God's name in vain (MA-L rating).

•             Jesus uses the f-word multiple times, uses God's name in vain.

•             Jesus smokes marijuana and complains about having to share it.

•             Jesus is arrested when a drug deal he is leading goes bad.

The Jesus character irreverently refers to God as "Pops," himself as "lord and savior," and is continually obsessed with alcohol and drugs.

TAKE ACTION

Contact the companies who actually sponsored TBS's anti-Christian "Black Jesus." Foot Locker, AutoTrader.com, Haribo Candy and Radio Shack were the major advertisers who paid corporate dollars to promote its products in association with the content of the program.

Let these companies know that their advertising dollars are supporting bigotry and animosity toward people of faith.

Radio Shack Disappoints Customers <p>Please send an email letter urging Radio Shack to pull both the "Laundry" and "The Talk" commercials immediately.</p> Radio Shack is offending families with not one but two inappropriate commercials. Both ads use sexual innuendos and include children. Parents find this type of advertising disgusting.

In "Laundry," a dad enters the room with a laundry basket and says to his son, "Mom just finished laundry. Anything you want to tell us?" The boy has a guilty look on his face and replies, "Sometimes I have these funny feelings and I'm not sure what's going on, but I looked online and it said it was normal." The dad has a surprised look on his face and is almost speechless, but says, "Uh, you left your phone in your jeans and it went through the wash."

In "The Talk," the dad approaches his son and says, "I think it's time we had a little talk about 'protection.' I know you just want to get out and show it off, but you can't just go swingin' it around all willy-nilly, trying to impress the girls. You gotta be careful." He then displays and refers to a tablet, remarking "this glass is fragile."

Why would Radio Shack deliberately turn off consumers with sex-laden advertisements? Radio Shack needs to hear from 1MM concerning these sleazy commercials. There is no reason to use indecent ads especially when they feature children in them.

Take Action

Please send an email letter urging Radio Shack to pull both the "Laundry" and "The Talk" commercials immediately. Otherwise, many customers will be left with no choice but to avoid making any purchases from Radio Shack stores.

Hold Sponsors of 'Satisfaction' Accountable <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Satisfaction." The sponsors are: Dyson, Subaru, Jaguar, Geico, State Farm and Target.</p> USA's new summer program, "Satisfaction," has a name that says it all. I suppose the name "Unsatisfied" didn't sound as attractive. Like a revamped soap opera, spouses get themselves tangled in a web of lies and hurt the ones they love. "Satisfaction" airs on Thursday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. CT.

The tagline for the program is: "They have everything but are still not satisfied." The show focuses on attempts to find satisfaction through having an affair, paying for an escort, or getting paid for sex. A show full of adultery, cheating, drugs and lies is the last influence our society needs. Even though the program airs a little later in the evening, it is not late enough since the bedroom scenes are soft porn.

The premier episode wasted no time in letting viewers know what this show is about. The episode began with a graphic sex scene, ended with another pornographic display, and mixed in a few more explicit scenes throughout the show. "Satisfaction" centers around a married couple who have no regrets and feel no remorse about committing adultery with someone else - or cheating on their own spouse.

Infidelity is the new trend sold as normal by USA. To put it on a scale, "Satisfaction" is more pornographic than the show "Mistresses." This program consists of so much exposed skin and erotic sexual content that it probably filled half of the one hour program.    

Hollywood is continuing to push casual sex, sometimes with multiple partners, as acceptable. But Scripture states clearly it is a sin. The Bible also says as Christians we must speak up against sin. If we remain silent, we are accepting it and are guilty of sin also. One Million Moms is determined to clean up broadcast airwaves.

Take Action

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Satisfaction." The sponsors are: Dyson, Subaru, Jaguar, Geico, State Farm and Target.

Urge advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list in protest of pushing sin directly into America's living rooms.

Guinness uses hymn in new beer ad <p>Please send an email letter strongly encouraging Guinness &amp; Co. to change the background music in their "Empty Chair" commercial. Ask that they no longer use a hymn out of respect for Christians.</p> Guinness & Co. is currently airing a commercial for its beer with a popular gospel hymn as background music. The song "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" is played during the entire ad and even though there are no lyrics it is unmistakably the beloved hymn Christians know and love.

The cherished "Everlasting Arms" hymn has no place in a beer commercial. Christian music should not be associated with an advertisement promoting drinking. The choice of including this hymn in the ad disrespects the Christian faith.

Take Action

Please send an email letter strongly encouraging Guinness & Co. to change the background music in their "Empty Chair" commercial. Ask that they no longer use a hymn out of respect for Christians.

Adult Swim's Blasphemous New Show <p>Please send an email letter strongly encouraging Adult Swim, owned by Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (a Time Warner Company), to drop all plans to air the anti-Christian program "Black Jesus."</p> The late night programming on the Cartoon Network, known as Adult Swim, plans to air the non-animated show "Black Jesus" portraying Jesus as a "black guy living in the hood." The show depicts him living in Compton Gardens and makes a mockery of our Lord. The foul language used in the trailer, including using the Lord's name in vain, is disgusting. In addition, there is violence, gunfire and other inappropriate gestures which completely misrepresent Jesus. This is blasphemy!

"Black Jesus" is set to premiere on August 7 at 11:00 pm ET/ 10:00 pm CT, unless we intervene. Adult Swim plans to blaspheme Jesus on a weekly basis. This mockery will be similar to "South Park" and "Family Guy," but much worse since the entire program will be based on lies about Christianity.

1MM will defend our Savior because He is Holy! Adult Swim is obviously not a family network, and this program is set to air later in the evening when children should be asleep, but that is no excuse. Adult Swim has crossed the line by belittling the Christian religion with foul jokes.

We need to send a loud and clear message to Adult Swim, its owner Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (a Time Warner Company), and all potential advertisers of "Black Jesus" that this kind of programming is insulting and completely unacceptable. Adult Swim is not ridiculing any other religion currently and wouldn't dream of mocking Mohammed or Muslims.

If we speak with one voice now, we can keep this program from ever seeing the light of day. Christians must take a stand and not be silent. Networks like Adult Swim continue to mock Christianity, and we will not stand for it. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow this blasphemy to continue without speaking up in protest. "Black Jesus" is anoher attempt to distort the truth about Christianity. There is power in numbers! Forward this to everyone you know in a fight to keep this show off the air.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter strongly encouraging Adult Swim, owned by Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (a Time Warner Company), to drop all plans to air the anti-Christian program "Black Jesus."

Tell them you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list in protest of this anti-Christian bigotry.

Payday's Disturbing New Ad <p>Please call the Hershey Company's corporate headquarters and ask that they immediately discontinue their Payday ad that encourages viewers to expose themselves.&nbsp;The Hershey Company's corporate office number is 800-468-1714 (press 0 for a Consumer Representative, available Monday- Friday 9:00 am- 4:00 pm ET).</p> Payday candy bars (owned by the Hershey Company) has launched a new marketing campaign symbolizing nudity and encouraging exposing oneself. This distasteful advertisement portrays the candy bar undressing as the wrapper is peeled away to expose a pixilated midsection.

The commercial voiceover includes:

"It's the candy bar that is too hot for TV - in all its naked glory - stripped of chocolate with nothing but salty, roasted peanuts on soft, sweet caramel. A Payday bar will get you through your day - Expose Yourself to Payday."

Now parents cannot purchase Payday or any Hershey products with a clean conscience. This inappropriate advertisement is morally wrong and promotes illegal behavior.

TAKE ACTION

Hershey will probably block incoming emails from our server like they have done in the past, so you'll want to personally call the Hershey Company's corporate headquarters and ask that they immediately discontinue their Payday ad that encourages viewers to expose themselves.

Let them know we will not buy any Hershey products until the Payday "Standing Tall" commercial is pulled off the air and removed from their website. Offensive ads cause parents to lose respect for a company. Hershey should not take complaints lightly because any advertisement intended to be naughty should be avoided if a company is concerned about its reputation.

The Hershey Company's corporate office number is 800-468-1714 (press 0 for a Consumer Representative, available Monday- Friday 9:00 am- 4:00 pm ET). I encourage you to be firm but polite in your request for Hershey to cancel their Payday "Expose Yourself" ad. Please stress the point that you will not purchase any Hershey products until this marketing campaign is pulled.

Take Action One More Time <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Mistresses." This week's sponsors were: CSpire, T-Mobile, Pier 1 Imports, Walgreens, L'Oreal, Macy's and Applebees.</p> In America, we are free to speak out and let our voices be heard so let's take action one more time before we celebrate our freedom this holiday weekend. ABC's "Mistresses" is degrading to women and damaging to our culture. The show centers around a group of four women who have no regrets and feel little or no remorse about committing adultery with someone else's husband - or cheating on their own.

"Mistresses" includes inappropriate content such as adultery, cheating, lies and deceit in explicit and sensually graphic scenes. Our society doesn't need more negative influences than it already has on broadcast airwaves.

"Mistresses" airs on Monday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT. Even though the program airs a little later in the evening, it is not late enough, especially during the summer months when school is out. In addition, previews for the show air earlier in the evening when children are likely watching.

Take Action

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Mistresses." This week's sponsors were: CSpire, T-Mobile, Pier 1 Imports, Walgreens, L'Oreal, Macy's and Applebees (Dine Equity).

Urge advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list in protest of pushing sin directly into America's living rooms.

There is No Mystery in 'Mystery Girls' <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Mystery Girls." This week's sponsors were: L'Oreal, Diet Coke and Marshalls (TJX Company).</p> ABC Family Channel's new program "Mystery Girls" does not involve innocent detectives fighting crime as parents might hope, but instead is just another show primarily about sexual encounters.

The show airs during primetime when children are likely watching. The season premiere aired Wednesday evening at 8:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. CT, and with a 14 DL rating it is not suitable for young viewers.

The majority of the content in this nonfamily channel program is adult oriented and includes sexual references and innuendos. The first episode centered on the search for a lost sex tape, which involves forgotten identity of the partner in the tape, not remembering all past sexual partners and a fake funeral.

"Mystery Girls" is not the Nancy Drew type detective program one might expect on a family network. This show is inappropriate for any network but especially for a family channel. This program is vulgar and vile and needs to be removed from the air immediately.

Take Action

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Mystery Girls." This week's sponsors were: L'Oreal, Diet Coke and Marshalls (TJX Company).

Another Adult Sitcom on ABC Family <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Young &amp; Hungry." This week's sponsors were: Yoplait (General Mills), Dove (Unilever), Purina (Nestle), Marshalls (TJX Company) and Diet Coke.</p> Warning to parents! ABC Family Channel has introduced yet another sex laden adult sitcom. The "Young & Hungry" premiere aired Wednesday evening at 8:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. CT and, with a 14 DLS rating, is not suitable for young viewers. The show is airing at a time when children are likely watching. Not only is the program broadcast during primetime, but it will attract a young audience with the title and with the main character being played by the same actress who played the best friend of Disney's "Hannah Montana."

The show includes sexual references, innuendos, foul language, homosexual attraction, one night stands and excessive alcohol consumption. Specific examples of content aired during the new thirty-minute family channel sitcom are below.

  • Main character, a young personal chef, gets drunk and sleeps with her new boss after the boss's girlfriend breaks up with him
  • Discussions about sex preferences and experiences during majority of the episode
  • Boss and girlfriend both admit to sleeping with someone else the night before
  • Boss and girlfriend make up and sleep together
  • Girlfriend is mentally unstable and extremely selfish, with bizarre behavior and unhealthy relationships
  • Crude humor about utensils used during an OBGYN visit

This program is obscene for any network but especially for a family channel. This show is indecent and offensive and needs to be removed from television immediately. "Young & Hungry" is a kiddy version of the lewd show "Two and a Half Men."

Take Action

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Young & Hungry." This week's sponsors were: Yoplait (General Mills), Dove (Unilever), Purina (Nestle), Marshalls (TJX Company) and Diet Coke.

Urge advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list in protest of pushing sin directly into America's living rooms.

'Mistresses' Encourages Illegal Behavior <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Mistresses." This week's sponsors were: T-Mobile, CSpire, XELJANZ (Pfizer) and L'il Critters Gummy Vites (Church &amp; Dwight Co.).</p> The show "Mistresses" centers around a group of four women who have no regrets and feel little or no remorse about committing adultery with someone else's husband - or cheating on their own. The program has always been degrading to women but now also encourages illegal behavior. Two characters on the show glamorize the escort service as being wonderful for many reasons including a way to make money, feel beautiful, have excitement and never have to sleep alone. This is morally wrong and also dangerous as it places one in situations that could be unsafe. The show references this life as being consequence free when that is the furthest from the truth.

"Mistresses" includes other inappropriate content such as adultery, cheating, lies and deceit in explicit and sensually graphic scenes. Our society doesn't need more negative influences than it already has on broadcast airwaves.

"Mistresses" airs on Monday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT. Even though the program airs a little later in the evening, it is not late enough, especially during the summer months when school is out. In addition, previews for the show air earlier in the evening when children are likely watching.

'The Fosters' is Back <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's program "The Fosters." This week's sponsors were: T-Mobile, Dove (Unilever), Maybelline (L'Oreal), TJ Maxx and Marshalls (TJX Company).</p> ABC Family Channel is anything but family friendly, but because "family" is in the network's name, we thought a warning should be sent out to anyone who continues to watch the network.

New episodes of "The Fosters" are airing 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, they run the risk of viewing a commercial for this offensive program.

ABC Family's show "The Fosters" is about two women raising 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.

Additional indecent content includes but is not limited to promiscuity among teens, prostitution, foul language, bullying, vandalism, drug and alcohol abuse, abortion without parental consent, rape, homosexuality, theft, anger issues and violence. 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.

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's program "The Fosters." This week's sponsors were: T-Mobile, Dove (Unilever), Maybelline (L'Oreal), TJ Maxx and Marshalls (TJX Company).

Hotwire is in Hot Water <p>Please send Hotwire.com an email letter asking them to pull their "Lucky Me" commercial immediately.</p> Hotwire.com is in hot water with conservative families over their newest commercial. Consumers should be aware of the offensive ad because there are many other travel sites to choose from if parents are warned about this indecent ad.

The commercial is about a couple going away for their anniversary while the grandparents take care of their kid for the night. But while one partner is dreaming of sleep and says, "It's all about sleep," the other partner says disappointedly, "Not all about sleep!" The dialogue goes on to say, "For me it is." And the reply is, "Lucky me."

A commercial should not discuss what does or doesn't happen in bed, plus the couple consists of two men. Hotwire is obviously not concerned about the message they are sending our children.

"Mistresses" season premiere aired on ABC this week and the name says it all. I suppose the name "Living in Sin" didn't sound as appealing.

NBC is Insensitive and Despicable <p>Please send NBC an email letter now insisting that they pull the entire school massacre scene from the program "The Mysteries of Laura," and no longer air the promo with this particular clip.</p> NBC network is currently airing a clip of "The Mysteries of Laura," a new series that begins this fall starring Debra Messing. Messing plays a homicide detective, and one scene shows her alarmed after rushing into a schoolroom where the walls and windows are smeared in bright red.

She says disgustedly: "This is a depraved, unspeakable act. Get ready to be inside for a very long time."

The scene's punch line follows with the character's two children, also covered in red, from getting wild with paint during an art project, and saying in unison, "Sorry Mommy."

NBC is not only insensitive to the families and students who have been forever changed by school shootings, but the network goes so far as to joke about school massacres. Also, no one needs to view a horror scene that insinuates blood all over a classroom, especially not children.

TAKE ACTION

If you find this despicable, please send NBC an email letter now insisting that they pull this entire scene from the program and no longer air the promo with this particular clip.

 

P.S. Thanks to a strong opening weekend, "Moms' Night Out" will play a second week in all of the opening theaters! "Moms' Night Out" is directed and produced by the Erwin Brothers, who also brought us "October Baby." Jon Erwin says that his desire was to make a comedy, but to also make a film that honors his wife and all mothers. He wants women to know that they are appreciated for all they do and don't have to keep trying to be perfect. The film has been endorsed and recommended by many women and men of faith, but is also being attacked by feminists and the liberal media as sexist and dangerous. Of course, they are the same critics who praise raunchy, sexually exploitative and demeaning movies. Moms are loving this movie and are walking away encouraged, inspired and reminded that they are God's Masterpiece. That is exactly what the film was designed to do. Together, let's defend the movie's values and faith elements. Help get the word out to go "vote with your movie ticket" this week, and silence the critics of traditional values.

'Bad Teacher' is just that – Bad <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of recent episodes of "Bad Teacher." National sponsors were: ACE Hardware, Sheba cat food (Mars), Victoria's Secret, Shark vacuums (Euro-Pro Operating LLC) and Johnson's Baby Lotion.</p> CBS's newest program, "Bad Teacher," is exactly what the title suggests; a show about a bad teacher, in more than one sense. What could be misleading is the main character not only lacks teaching skills, experience and education, but also is lying about who she is just to try to snag a rich, divorced father. Of course, with a TV-14 DL rating you can be assured this will not be for family viewing. However, the name of the show and the school ground setting along with elementary age cast members will attract young viewers. The content in this program (and even in its commercials) is inappropriate for children and teens and will send the wrong message to America's youth.  New episodes air on Thursday evenings at 9:30 p.m. ET/8:30 CT.

Unacceptable content in the program includes: sexual innuendos, one night stands, sleeping around, smoking weed, alcohol at school, greed, lying, deception and plans to go away for romantic weekends with different divorced, rich dads whom the teacher just met.

CBS's newest show is irresponsible and an insult to all good teachers. It is appalling that CBS is airing a show that features immoral behavior in a positive light while attempting to draw in young viewers with the title and adolescent setting of the program.

Take Action

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of recent episodes of "Bad Teacher." National sponsors were: ACE Hardware, Sheba cat food (Mars), Victoria's Secret, Shark vacuums (Euro-Pro Operating LLC) and Johnson's Baby Lotion.

Macy's Cannot Be Trusted <p>Please send Macy's an email letting the company know you no longer trust their store because of their decision to include the "Raise You Up" drag performance during their parade with millions of children present and watching from home.</p> Families have traditionally enjoyed watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade together in person or from home, but not this year. Children look forward to the parade that includes gigantic balloons, hundreds of clowns, music and marching bands. This year an estimated 3.5 million bystanders viewed the parade live and 50 million viewers watched the broadcast from home by tuning in to NBC on Thursday, November 28. The once family focused department store had an unpleasant surprise in store for viewers less than 30-minutes into the program.

The annual tradition for family entertainment had a not-so-discreet agenda this time around. This year's parade chose to send a Politically Correct message, but their plan backfired and the statement they really sent to families is that Macy's cannot be trusted.

"Raise You Up" was not suitable for families for many reasons. The inappropriate act starred Kinky Boots, referencing a musical written to celebrate the differences in each other and included: (all) the men and women in thigh-high boots [mostly red pleather while others were sparkly "hooker" boots], a man in boxer shorts and men in burlesque and Moulin rouge costumes prancing around expressing themselves, RuPaul (famous drag queen) along with several men dressed in drag, transgender and transvestites, singing and dancing as an expression of "diversity" and honoring whatever sexuality you want.

The performance was sexually charged and quite offensive. Here are some, but not all of the lyrics to the song they chose to sing, to give you a better idea:

Celebrate you to elevate you!

Ladies, Gentlemen, and those who have yet to make up their minds.

Instill the truth… learn something new.

Accept yourself and you'll accept others too.

Let love shine… let pride be your guide.

Change the world when you change your mind.

Just be who you wanna be.

You're beautiful; it's beautiful!

Shame on Macy's for promoting this. We cannot trust Macy's Dept. Store any longer. This is the straw that broke the camel's back. It is clear that Macy's does not have our children's best interest in mind. Macy's needs to know that trust must be earned and once trust is lost it is difficult to get back.

TAKE ACTION

Please send Macy's an email letting the company know you no longer trust their store because of their decision to include the "Raise You Up" drag performance during their parade with millions of children present and watching from home.

Contact Poise about SAM ad now! <p>Please send Poise (Kimberly-Clark) an email letter urging that this ad be pulled immediately!</p> Poise is airing a new commercial, and it is extremely sexually suggestive. This indecent ad includes two women having a discussion about "SAM" in their pants. Poise products are designed to provide protection for light bladder leaks so they have introduced liners with super absorbent material, or the acronym SAM.

The Poise commercial begins with one woman telling another woman about how she loves SAM. She continues by saying, "SAM knows how to take care of a woman. SAM is also very small, but SAM can last for hours!" Then a man they do not know looks over at them shocked because he is close enough to hear their conversation and finds it inappropriate. The ad ends when she says, "I have SAM in my pants right now," and then points to the Poise liners she has in her handbag. The other woman then states, "I wish I had SAM in my pants."

It is the most disgusting commercial that Poise and parent company, Kimberly-Clark, have ever produced and similar to an ED advertisement.  Some may say, "turn it off if you don't like it" or "change the channel," but that is impossible if a terrible commercial comes on all of a sudden while you and your family are watching a decent show. You may not have time to turn it off before you are subjected to the filth. Problems are not solved by burying your head in the sand. Instead, identify the problem and destroy it at the source.

Poise even has posted on their website, "SAM is satisfying women everywhere." Not only is this advertising campaign blatantly sexually suggestive, but this horrible ad is turning off their target market and primary customers.

TAKE ACTION

Please send Poise (Kimberly-Clark) an email letter urging that this ad be pulled immediately!

TLC has done it again! <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "My Five Wives" asking that they pull their support immediately from a program that degrades family and marriage. This week's national sponsors were: Subway, Realtor.com, Arm &amp; Hammer (Church &amp; Dwight Co.), Evolution of Smooth (eos) and Capri Sun (Kraft Foods).</p> TLC obviously enjoys promoting immoral reality shows with unethical lifestyles! The new reality show, "My Five Wives," promotes another polygamist family airing on Sunday evenings at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) and 9:00 p.m. CT on TLC. 

The family in the show consists of one husband, five wives and their combined twenty-four children. Not only is their unconventional family structure absurd and confusing, but their living arrangements are as well. These five women are constantly discussing how difficult sharing a husband is and have to stick to a schedule on who gets the husband on which night to keep jealousy to a minimum, especially concerning time spent together. This is their solution on how to function without chaos.

TLC implies that the loving, tight-knit family has established a cohesive, loving unit. In other words, everything is fine and dandy, and nothing is morally wrong with their lifestyle choice.

Instead of TLC airing programs that are enlightening and encouraging- after all they are The Learning Channel- they have decided to stoop so low as to show this controversial content, again. TLC doesn't seem to mind that this lifestyle is illegal, nor that it is ethically wrong. The network outdid itself by adding even more wives to the mix than in its original polygamist television family. One Million Moms already voiced its concern and contacted TLC before they aired "Sister Wives," featuring a husband with three wives and eventually adding a fourth wife. This time it is necessary to contact the sponsors of the show "My Five Wives."

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "My Five Wives" asking that they pull their support immediately from a program that degrades family and marriage.

'About A Boy' Needs Our Attention <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's episode of "About A Boy." This week's national sponsors were: Outback, Staples, Chili's, Colgate, Subway, Pizza Hut and Maybelline/L'Oreal.</p> NBC's newest program, "About A Boy," could be misleading to parents with this title, but with a TV-14 rating you can be assured this will not be for family viewing. The name of the show along with the age of the primary cast member will attract young viewers. The content in this program, and even its commercials, is inappropriate for young viewers. New episodes air on Tuesday evenings at 9:00 p.m. EST/8:00 CST.

The program is about a single mom raising her child the best she can. She has her own way of doing things and pours her entire life into raising her son, but then is ridiculed as a prude for focusing on her son instead of her own social life and dating. The child is a nerd who is picked on at school because his mom is overprotective. Meanwhile their wild adult male neighbor tries to help the boy out, overstepping his boundaries by taking the eleven-year-old boy to a bikini party where alcohol is served and giving him "The Talk" without his mother's permission. She asks this neighbor to watch her son when she is in a bind for a job interview, but on most days repeatedly asks the neighbor to keep his distance because he is a terrible role model. Their neighbor has one night stands almost every night of the week and sleeps with different women constantly. The young boy often sees these women in their lingerie. The show uses foul language and includes sexual encounters and innuendos throughout the entire thirty-minute program.

Honey Maid offends conservatives <p>Please send U.S. key executives for Honey Maid and Nabisco (owned by Mondelez International) an email urging them to pull this liberal commercial immediately and remain neutral in the culture war.</p> Nabisco should be ashamed of themselves for their latest Honey Maid and Teddy Graham cracker commercial where they attempt to normalize sin. Right away it shows two men with a baby, followed by other families, and ends with different families pictured including the one with two dads. This commercial not only promotes homosexuality, but then calls the scene in the advertisement wholesome. The ad states, "Everyday wholesome snacks for every wholesome family. This is wholesome."

One Million Moms stands up for Biblical truth which is very clear in Romans 1:26-27 about this particular type of sexual perversion.

Honey Maid is also using the hashtag #thisiswholesome. There is concern about the way this ad is pushing the LGBT agenda, but an even greater concern is the way that they are changing the meaning of the word "wholesome."

This is truly sad. If this is what Honey Maid thinks is wholesome, then my family will no longer purchase Honey Maid or Nabisco products.

TAKE ACTION                                                                                                                                                            Please send U.S. key executives for Honey Maid and Nabisco (owned by Mondelez International) an email urging them to pull this liberal commercial immediately and remain neutral in the culture war.

Red Robin's Disturbing New Ad <p>Please send Red Robin an email letter urging the company to discontinue "The D.G.B." ad campaign immediately and rename their newest burger on the menu with a more decent option instead.</p> Red Robin's new burger "The D.G.B." - short for "That's One D*mn Great Burger" - has an ad campaign that is following a trend of using profanity in its advertising. Red Robin is replicating a form of media that is intended to be naughty and catchy, but it should be avoided if a company is concerned with its reputation.

Marketing campaigns using profanity are never appropriate, especially when advertising food for a family restaurant. Offensive ads cause parents to lose their appetites and their respect for a company.

Take Action

Please send Red Robin an email letter urging the company to discontinue "The D.G.B." ad campaign immediately and rename their newest burger on the menu with a more decent option instead.

Ram trucks air profanity-laced TV ad <p>Send Ram and parent company Chrysler an email letter urging them to no longer produce commercials that cross the line and to pull this profanity-laced ad immediately.</p> Don't let Ram offend your family unchallenged...defend your values!        

A commercial for the Ram pickup aired multiple times during Sunday's Daytona 500 broadcast on Fox network, when millions of families with children were watching. Everyone knows children repeat what they hear.

In the commercial, the announcer says, "A man will ask a lot of his truck. Can it tow that, haul this, make it all the way over the top of that? Well isn't it nice to know that the answer will always be, 'Hel- yes!'"

Ram's use of profanity is irresponsible and offensive. It is extremely destructive and damaging to impressionable children viewing the commercial.

TAKE ACTION

Send Ram and parent company Chrysler an email letter urging them to no longer produce commercials that cross the line and to pull this profanity-laced ad immediately.

To spare you the nasty details; the unacceptable content in just the most recent, thirty-minute episode included: drug abuse, sexual encounters, disgusting dialogue, graphic sexual descriptions, sexual innuendos, strip club, a prostitute and extremely foul language.

This is just the tip of the iceberg and only sums up encounters of the characters during this program. The sponsors and the CBS network are being irresponsible in promoting such a vulgar program.

50th Anniversary Swimsuit Issue <p>Send an email letter to Sports Illustrated now! Let them know they are pushing pornography and that this year's issue in particular is nothing more than soft porn. Also, request they only display their swimsuit edition on the magazine aisle in nontransparent plastic bags and away from entrances, checkout counters and lanes.</p> The cover of the Sports Illustrated 50th Anniversary Swimsuit Issue features three topless models hugging with their backs turned and focuses on the thong bikini bottoms they wear. There is also a side view of one model's breast. The SI Swimsuit Issue is nothing but soft porn and most closely resembles Playboy magazine. This soft core pornography is displayed in many family stores, often at checkout counters which is extremely offensive, disgusting and disrespectful to families. This type of publishing is also degrading to women.

Families should be able to enter supermarkets, convenience and drug stores without being subjected to indecency. Since SI is pushing pornography this magazine needs to be removed from stores, or at least moved to the magazine aisle so families can avoid being exposed to this filth. Customers can choose to avoid the magazine aisle, but they cannot escape when the magazine is displayed at the checkout counters and lanes. Also, SI should place this in a nontransparent plastic cover to protect minors who are browsing the magazine aisle.

The 2014 issue hits newsstands and digital formats next week.

Also, request they only display their swimsuit edition on the magazine aisle in nontransparent plastic bags and away from entrances, checkout counters and lanes.

Even though SI has an opt-out option for magazine subscribers, families should let the company know that if the magazine refuses to cover the models appropriately without anything exposed then you will cancel your entire magazine subscription. This way, you will no longer financially support a company participating in the printing of soft porn. Sports Illustrated needs to realize families do not want indecency shoved in their face.

'2 Broke Girls' Needs to Go! <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's program "2 Broke Girls." Urge advertisers to place the program on their "do not advertise" list in protest of the attempt to desensitize America and push filth into our living rooms.</p> CBS continues to air the program "2 Broke Girls" on Monday evenings at 8:30 p.m. ET/7:30 CT. The 14-DL rated show is full of sexual innuendos. The show's primary dialogue is sexual references and it airs during primetime. This program has been on our radar because of inappropriate content like "eat something from the girl's soft opening." Another example from a previous episode involved a girl with a pet taxi telling another girl holding a cat to "Just put it in here." The other girl responded by saying, "That is what I say when my hand gets tired."

Unacceptable content in just the most recent thirty-minute episode included:

  • Having sex in a dumpster
  • "I know I couldn't keep my hands off my first love - of course I am talking about my penis."
  • "I once had sex on a bus, and I was driving it - boy were those kids late for school."
  • "No one is having sex on my clock." And the reply, "Maybe your clock isn't big enough?"
  • "If the dumpster is a rocking, then don't come a knocking."
  • "Come on - get a stairwell!"
  • "Suck on that."
  • "He got me hooked on heroine."
  • "It's 8:45 and no one has their tops off!"
  • "I'll cut your thing off!" And the reply, "I could stand to lose 5 pounds."

Every single sponsor that One Million Moms contacted in our previous campaign decided to no longer sponsor "The Fosters." 1MM will continue to monitor the show and keep you updated on current advertisers.

"The Fosters" aired this past Monday on ABC Family Channel with a 14-DLV rating and included a whole slew of inappropriate content for what is supposed to be a family program. This is a rating that mature, adult programs receive, but this family channel finds it suitable to air for family viewing with teens as their target audience. New episodes will continue to air on Monday evenings at 9:00pm ET/8:00pm CT. In addition, frequent promos are airing for this series during primetime and during G rated programs on multiple channels.

There is too much unacceptable content in the program to describe here, but recent content in the past episode included:

  • Foul language
  • Drug, alcohol and sex addictions
  • Prostitution
  • Transgender male teen (Nicole now goes by Cole) and shown taping down chest

  • Theft
  • Bullying
  • Anger issues

If Disney goes through with it… <p>Please send an email letter and urge Care.com to stop sponsoring the Disney Channel if it pushes the LGBT agenda on our children during the program "Good Luck Charlie."</p> Alerting all parents! If "Good Luck Charlie" goes through with introducing LGBT content, then the floodgates will be opened for all programs on the Disney Channel - a trend that will be almost impossible to stop.

Disney Channel has very few sponsors and advertisers on its network. Care.com was the only Disney Channel sponsor that was promoted during the January 19, 2014, newest episode of "Good Luck Charlie." Care.com often sponsors programs on the Disney network.

An upcoming episode in this last season of "Good Luck Charlie" will feature a family with two moms, a first for Disney Channel. Because "Good Luck Charlie" is coming to a close, the characters are only expected to appear in one episode. However, one episode is enough, especially since the network repeatedly airs reruns of all its programs.

One Million Moms launched an email campaign in 2013 that urged Disney officials to abandon their plans to corrupt the children's network with LGBT content.  However, Disney officials have not responded to the thousands of emails protesting their plans. Disney has decided to be politically correct instead of providing family-friendly programming.  Disney should stick to entertaining, not pushing an agenda.

Conservative families need to urge Disney to avoid controversial topics that children are far too young to comprehend. This is the last place a parent would expect their children to be confronted with topics that are too difficult for them to understand. Mature issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, and it is extremely unnecessary.

Take Action

Please send an email letter and urge Care.com to stop sponsoring the Disney Channel if it pushes the LGBT agenda on our children during the program "Good Luck Charlie."

Content of 'The Fosters' worsen <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's program "The Fosters." This week's national sponsors were: Revlon, L'Oreal, Olive Garden, Lunchables (Kraft) and Little Caesar's Pizza.</p> The winter season premiere of "The Fosters" aired this past Monday on ABC Family Channel. The 14-D rated show is packed full of inappropriate content for what is supposed to be a family program. The controversial plot includes a lesbian couple raising children together, but that is only the beginning of the not family-friendly content in this program. But because "family" is a misleading part of the network's name, we thought another warning was needed for anyone who continues to watch the channel. 

ABC Family's show "The Fosters" is about two women attempting to redefine marriage while also raising foster, adopted and biological children. New episodes will continue to air on Monday evenings at 9:00pm ET/8:00pm CT. In addition, frequent promos are airing for this series during primetime and during G rated programs on multiple channels. These promos include the two women nude in bed together while hugging and kissing, teen with a bloody face and teen bashing in a car windshield with a baseball bat.

Unacceptable content in the season premiere included:

  • Lesbians on their honeymoon lying naked in bed together while hugging and kissing
  • Grandmother admits to staying with a past boyfriend she did not really like only because she loved his bed
  • Engaging in casual conversation with prostitutes and asking for their help
  • Female teen shares a bed with a guy at a hotel
  • Teen steals with the goal of getting arrested
  • Runaway teen
  • Teen breaks probation

Staples New 'What the L' Ads <p>Send Staples an email letter and urge them to no longer produce marketing campaigns that cross the line, to pull the newest "What the L" commercials off the air and stop circulation of the printed ad immediately.</p> The new Staples ad campaign uses the tagline "What the L!" We all know children repeat what they hear. Everyone knows exactly what the company is implying with the mock swearing, but their commercials make sure there is no doubt of their intentions to push the advertising envelope. Staples printed ad spells out "STAP ES" (minus the L), - leading to the question, "What the L is going on?"

Staples commercials use these slogans: "There will be L to pay; L if I know; Get the L out of here; All L has broken loose and What the L is going on."

Staples' ads (airing on broadcast airwaves and in print) are irresponsible and offensive. They are extremely destructive and damaging to impressionable children who will be exposed to this suggested profanity.

GLEE Mocks Christianity at Christmas <p>Please send an email to this show's sponsors and let them know that we will not stand for Christianity to be mocked. Urge advertisers to place the program GLEE on their "do not advertise" list immediately.</p> Most families enjoy watching Christmas programs and movies this time of year. Unfortunately not all Christmas features are wholesome entertainment. Glee's previously "Never Aired Christmas" episode should have stayed just that and remained unaired, considering it was complete with a bisexual Santa, transgender Virgin Mary and its fair share of drunkenness.

Other religions do not tolerate this behavior and as Christians we will not either. Why any producer or network feels mocking a sacred and religious holiday where Christians celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ is acceptable is beyond me. GLEE should not and will not get a free pass to make a joke of Christmas.

This is not the first time the show has aired blasphemous content in their program. Glee producer Ryan Murphy is used to pushing the moral boundaries on his show, but last week's episode went too far. The mockery of the Christmas story was blasphemous and an abomination.

The show featured the transgender student, Unique, portraying the Virgin Mary in their high school's nativity scene and acts out giving birth to the baby Jesus. The doll representing Jesus wore a sequin diaper and was thrown from singer to singer while they sang "Love Child, Never Meant to be." Baby Jesus is tossed around like a rag doll and shown no respect.

In another scene, a bisexual "Sexy Santa," gets two female characters and the show's gay male character drunk before robbing them blind - all this after making out with and tying the male character up in bed. These same females in a previous scene are elves at the local mall and tell kids to ask for mobile devices they could download porn on while wearing skimpy elf costumes.

Glee is not a late-night program and is rated TV-14 DLSV. While it currently airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/ 8 p.m. CT on FOX, in February it will be moving to Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT - well before many children's bedtimes.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email to this show's sponsors and let them know that we will not stand for Christianity to be mocked. Urge advertisers to place the program GLEE on their "do not advertise" list immediately. Last week's national sponsors were: Kay Jewelers, Nokia, Kleenex Brand (Kimberly-Clark Corporation), Victoria's Secret, Old Navy, Maybelline (L'Oreal), Hershey's and Macy's.

Kmart Continues to Cross the Line <p>Please send Kmart an email letter requesting they cancel their new "Show Your Joe" commercial immediately!</p> Kmart (Sears Brands, LLC) has a new commercial that is not only offensive - but this once family department store has made a deliberate decision to produce controversial advertisements instead of wholesome ones. This is a terrible plan on Kmart's part, especially at this time of year!

The title of the current ad is "Show Your Joe," and Kmart includes sexual content during a Christmas hand bell choir performance. The commercial focuses on several men wearing Joe Boxer underwear thrusting in a sexualized way to the tune of Jingle Bells. They start gyrating and shaking themselves instead of the hand bells, intending to make their "bells" ring in song - which is highly inappropriate.

The commercial ends: "Shop Your Way, Joe Boxer, Kmart. Get In Get More Christmas."

Normally, we do not provide a link since One Million Moms does not want to contribute to this filth being spread around even more, but we made an exception this time to show how ridiculous and disgusting this ad really is. The link to the commercial is provided here for reference only so you will have the information you need to voice your concern. If you would rather not watch the video clip, you may take our word on it, knowing this is not the first or second time Kmart has aired offensive commercials.

This commercial is airing during primetime, even during Christmas movies on family networks such as the Hallmark Channel, which families will likely watch together. Kmart should be more responsible in their marketing decisions. Let them know that as a parent and a consumer you are disgusted by their recent marketing choices.

Take Action

Please send Kmart an email letter requesting they cancel their new "Show Your Joe" commercial immediately!

Take it a step further:

1. Facebook users - Copy and post this message to your Facebook page and encourage others to take action!

Kmart's distasteful new commercial has to go! This ad should be pulled off the air immediately.

Report 'Family Guy' to the FCC <p>Please send an email letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) about the indecent content on "Family Guy."</p> It is a violation of federal law for broadcasters to air indecent material on publicly-owned airwaves when children are likely to be in the viewing audience.

Yet that is EXACTLY what the Fox Broadcast Network (not to be confused with Fox News) did this past Sunday, November 10th, with its most recent episode of Family Guy.

The network brags to its advertisers that Family Guy is "#1 with Teens" and because it is a cartoon, the show is watched by tens of thousands of young children every week.

What were children exposed to on Sunday's episode of Family Guy? Unbelievably vile sexual content - including "jokes" about child molestation, exploitation, rape and the sexualized use of food and perverse 'internal defrosting' of frozen hot dogs.

Beyond the repugnant sexual content, the overall theme of the episode was that it is humorous for a boy to bully and beat up a girl.

This episode aired at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, which is only 8 p.m. for the Central/Mountain time zones.

It's high time for the FCC to enforce the law and act in the best interests of children and families. It's long past time for the FCC to take responsibility for what goes out over the broadcast airwaves that our children are watching!

PLEASE join with other Americans in holding the broadcasters accountable for their violation of the federal broadcast indecency law.

Mom Mocks Christians <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of the most recent episodes of "Mom." The national sponsors are: TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Maybelline, L'Oreal, Fiat (Chrysler Group) and Ore-Ida (Heinz Co).</p> CBS's newest program, "Mom," could mislead parents with this title, but with a TV-14 DL rating, you can be assured this will not be for family viewing. The name of the show along with the age of the child cast members will attract young viewers. The content in this program and its commercials is inappropriate for tweens and teens and will send the wrong message to America'' youth.  New episodes air on Monday evenings at 9:30 p.m. ET/8:30 CT.

The characters of the mom and her own mother both set terrible examples of motherhood and are the farthest from a positive role model for women today. Children will also see this program, which airs entirely too early for the content presented, and they will be effected negatively by this broken television family. Offensive content in the program included three generations of teen pregnancies, adultery, sexual innuendos, mockery of Christians and crude language.

WARNING! Content is offensive - feel free to skip to Take Action if you prefer.               

There is too much unacceptable content in the program to describe it all, but content in the most recent episodes included:

  • Third generation teen pregnancy
  • Mom's coworker experiments with bisexuality
  • Mocks Christianity and say Christians are not normal
  • Makes fun of pastor and his family
  • Daughter tells mom, "Go to Hell!"
  • Characters saying, "Doing it in the backseat like a bunch of 9th graders. Or what age will make me sound normal?"
  • "I think God wants me to get laid."
  • "Dream sucking monster shoot out of your hoo ha!"
  • "If it stands up to pee; I'm banging it!"

NBC's new program "Dracula" airs on Friday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. CT with a TV-14-SV rating. The gory series will air on weekends when children and teens usually stay up later. Not only is this show extremely violent, but it also includes a high level of sexual content that should be considered pornographic material.                                                                             

NBC's website describes the series with words like sex, style, mystery and adventure. Even the previews included several brief clips of sex scenes that would be considered soft porn. This program is entirely too graphic in too many ways.                                                                             

Previews of this program also included: terrifying screams, a rotted corpse, death, murder, a woman burned alive while tied to a stake, spirits, satanic and occult elements, homosexual content, tons of blood (mostly on Dracula's face and victim's necks) and other gore, including decapitated heads in boxes and pools of blood.

In the original "Quicksilver" Capital One commercial starring Samuel L. Jackson, he blurts out the d-word! Capital One's "Quicksilver" ad was irresponsible and offensive but after our members contacted the company a new commercial has begun airing. Capital One has updated their commercial to leave out the profanity. The revised commercial now says, "Every single day."


This is a HUGE improvement! The commercial is family-friendly now. 1MM appreciates Capital One taking appropriate action to make this correction.

Your voice was heard once again!

(I have personally contacted Capital One to inquire if the previous ad will continue to air also, but have not received a response at this time. I have not been able to confirm that the original commercial has been pulled off the air entirely or if it will continue to air later in the evening on select, non-family, racy networks only.)

___________________________________________________________________________

Original Alert:

In the newest Capital One commercial starring Samuel L. Jackson, he blurts out the d-word! We all know children repeat what they hear.

Capital One's "Quicksilver" ad is irresponsible and offensive. It is extremely destructive and damaging to impressionable children viewing the commercial.

TAKE ACTION

Send Capital One an email letter and urge them to no longer produce commercials that cross the line and to pull the newest "Quicksilver" ad off the air immediately.

'Dracula' Set to Air on NBC <p>Please send your email to oppose NBC's new show "Dracula" and strongly encourage this network to drop all plans to air the program.</p> Warning! NBC's "Dracula" season premiere is set to air this Friday, October 25 at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. CT with a TV-14 rating. The gory series will air on weekends when children and teens potentially stay up later. As another program to warp the minds of our youth, it will likely give children nightmares.                                                         

NBC website describes the series with words like sex, style, mystery and adventure. The preview included several brief clips of sex scenes - one including a woman in lingerie with her dress hiked up and legs spread with Dracula between them. This program is entirely too graphic in too many ways.

Previews of this program also included: terrifying screams, a rotted corpse, death, murder, woman burned alive while tied to a stake, spirits, satanic elements, tons of blood (mostly on Dracula's face and victim's necks) and other gore.

Take Action

Please send your email to oppose NBC's new show "Dracula" and strongly encourage this network to drop all plans to air the program.

Let NBC know you and your family will not be watching the series premiere of "Dracula" or any following episodes. Also, inform NBC that you will no longer watch the network at all in order to avoid seeing the graphic previews for this dark show.

Let NBC know also that you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list, consider pulling all ads from the NBC network in protest.

Hardee's - Enough is Enough <p>1MM has attempted to contact CKE Restaurants (Hardee's and Carl's Jr.) by email, but our last email campaign was put to a halt after they began blocking our emails. We are asking you to take this one step further and do this the "old-fashioned way" and make a phone call expressing your disgust.</p> Will Hardee's ever learn? They are at it again with another disgusting ad. Their newest Game Day Fantasy - Buffalo Blue Cheese Thickburger commercial focuses on the model's sweaty chest and legs with several suggestive shots. The male football commentator says, "Holy Moly, I am definitely sweating! I'm 100% excited! Are you seeing what I am seeing? Hello!" This ad is extremely degrading to women and should be pulled off the air immediately.

Not long after One Million Moms contacted the company about its advertisement starring Kate Upton making out with a burger at a drive-in movie wearing only skimpy lingerie, the company aired three different commercials all with the same theme. The restaurant is using sex to sell its burgers with scantily-clad models licking sauce seductively in provocative poses. 1MM has had enough with their soft porn ads! We will politely, but sternly let them know that we are not giving up on protecting our families.

There is strength in numbers so be sure to send this to everyone you know! 1MM will remain consistent and dedicated, especially with companies that seem not to budge, which means we need EVERYONE'S help in taking action!

Hardee's and Carl's Jr. (both owned by CKE Restaurants) in review:

(1) CKE Restaurants is a hamburger business catering to families yet it has consistently used sex to sell its product.

(2) In 2003, Hardee's (Carl's Jr.) featured Hugh Hefner as a poster celebrity. 

(3) Hardee's used an erotic ad featuring a mechanical bull and a scantily clad female.

(4) In 2005, Hardee's used a pornographic ad with Paris Hilton using sleazy movements to sell burgers.

(5) In 2009, Hardee's featured their new "Biscuit holes." In the ad, various customers individually name them using such verbiage as B holes, A holes, dingle balls, and biscatles (as in testicles).

(6) In 2009, Carl's Jr. has just launched its newest in a series of raunchy sex-laden ads.

TAKE ACTION:

1MM has attempted to contact CKE Restaurants (Hardee's and Carl's Jr.) by email, but our last email campaign was put to a halt after they began blocking our emails. We are asking you to take this one step further and do this the "old-fashioned way" and make a phone call expressing your disgust.

Suggested talking points:

"Your advertising continues to offend me and my family.  You have shown no respect for common decency, values or women. If you continue to advertise in this manner and refuse to remove your recent ad, my family will no longer eat in your restaurants.I also plan on telling everyone I know never to visit your restaurant again unless you pull the Game Day Fantasy ad off the air and remove it from your website immediately!

In the past, your reply has been that men are your target market, but women, especially moms, make the majority of meal decisions. Not to mention a majority of the men you are "targeting" have wives and daughters which they love and respect and are offended by your advertising choice that is degrading to women. These fathers also have sons they do not want exposed to your sexually explicit content that is considered soft porn by many families."

Number to call:

CKE Consumer Relations Dept. -  1-877-799-7827.... then press "1" for Carl's Jr. or "2" for Hardee's.

They are keeping up with complaints and will report back to their marketing department. You will have the option to leave your information similar to our email campaigns.)

I also encourage you to call your local Hardee's and Carl's Jr. Franchise immediately! Ask them to use their influence to stop the offensive ads.

Continue to Contact Sponsors of 'Mom' <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's episode of "Mom." This week's national sponsors were: Chili's, M&amp;M's (Mars), Olive Garden, Disney Parks, BMW and Planters (Kraft).</p> CBS's newest program, "Mom," could mislead parents with this title, but with a TV-14 DL rating, you can be assured this will not be for family viewing. The name of the show along with the age of the child cast members will attract young viewers. The content in this program (and even in its commercials) is inappropriate for tweens and teens and will send the wrong message to America's youth.  New episodes air on Monday evenings at 9:30 p.m. ET/8:30 CT.

The character playing the mom and actress playing the part of her mother both set terrible examples and are the farthest from a positive role model for women today. Children will also see this program - which airs entirely too early for the content presented - and they will be effected negatively by this broken television family. Offensive content in the program included three generations of teen pregnancies, adultery, sexual innuendos and crude language.

There is too much unacceptable content in the program to describe it all, but recent content(WARNING! Content is offensive - feel free to skip to Take Action if you prefer)in the past two thirty-minute programs included:

  • Third generation teen pregnancy
  • Grandmother blames her daughter for granddaughter's pregnancy since she didn't tell her, "Oral sex is a work around."
  • While the entire family is at the OBGYN's office the pregnant teen's little brother is reading diagrams on wall and says, "Clitoris!"
  • Grandmother asks pregnant granddaughter if she has quit smoking pot and drinking (hinting she didn't when she was pregnant as a teenager).
  • Grandmother teaches young grandson how to gamble and takes all his money in the process.
  • Grandmother gifts her daughter a vibrator since she isn't ready to date yet.

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's episode of "Mom." This week's national sponsors were: Chili's, M&M's (Mars), Olive Garden, Disney Parks, BMW and Planters (Kraft).

Ruby Tuesday's Disturbing New Ad <p>Please send Ruby Tuesday an email letter urging the company to discontinue the "Fun Between the Buns" ad campaign immediately.</p> Ruby Tuesday's new pretzel burger "Fun Between the Buns" ad campaign is tasteless, blurring everything in the middle of the burger similar to an advertisement that reveals inappropriate images. Ruby Tuesday is replicating a form of media that is gaining popularity and intended to be naughty but should be avoided if a company is concerned with its reputation.

The only question is which is worse, the slogan "Fun Between the Buns" or the graphic that is included with it? Parents do not want their children repeating the slogan, and the graphic is equally disturbing because it is symbolizing nudity. Everything between the top and bottom hamburger buns is pixelated, including condiments, meat, cheese and other toppings. This should only be done when trying to protect someone's privacy and should not be tolerated when unnecessary in any other form of media.

Marketing campaigns using sexual innuendos are never appropriate, especially when advertising food for a family restaurant. Offensive ads cause parents to lose their appetites and their respect for a company.

Take Action

Please send Ruby Tuesday an email letter urging the company to discontinue the "Fun Between the Buns" ad campaign immediately.

CBS Makes 'Mom' Look Bad <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's episode of "Mom." This week's national sponsors were: BMW, Simple Skincare (Unilever), Trop50 (Tropicana/Pepsi) and Planters (Kraft).</p> If possible, try to imagine the worst possible characteristics a mother could have. Then multiply that by ten, and you have the entire plot to one of the new TV shows airing this fall. The premiere of "Mom" aired this week, and it was shocking. The character playing the mom and actress playing the part of her mother both set terrible examples and are the farthest from a positive role model for women today. Children will also see this program - which airs entirely too early for the content presented - and they will be effected negatively by this broken television family.

Offensive content in the program included two teen pregnancies, an affair, sexual innuendos and crude language.

Additional unacceptable content in the thirty minute program included:

  • "My daughter is an easy lay, and it's not my fault."
  • High school yearbook quote from mom, "Smoke pot and drink alcohol."
  • Mom says to daughter, "Getting pregnant as a teen ruined my life. No offense."
  • Mom does a poor job trying to have sex talk with daughter.
  • Mom told her, "Can't tell you not to have sex because I did at your age."
  • Daughter says, "I'm not having sex!"
  • Mom states, "Don't lie to the one who washes your sheets."
  • Young son tells mom his teen sister took a shower with her boyfriend.
  • At AA (Alcohol Anonymous) Meeting mom says, "Sober now, and the worst days of my life."
  • Mom is having an affair with a married man who is also her boss.
  • Downplays role of dad since he doesn't live in the house. He is made to look like an irresponsible and immature slob.
  • Mom says to Dad, "You can't sell enough semen to pay child support."
  • Dad says, "I know; I've tried." Same dialogue is exchanged concerning him selling pot.
  • Dad gives elementary age son tips on video game they play together, "It is ok to hit the hookers with bats."
  • Son replies, "If you hit the hookers enough times, they give you your money back."

Please request that Motorola no longer air provocative and vulgar commercials.</p> The new Moto X Lazy Phone ad makes families uncomfortable and uneasy; disgusting commercial includes touching and freeing up your hands.

Rundown of the offensive commercial:

  • The ad slogan is "Tired of having to touch your lazy phone? Moto X responds to your voice and frees up your hands for more important things. Just talk."

  • One male represents the other male's lazy smartphone
  • Male phone owner wants a song to play while giving a female a back massage and is aggravated because his phone insists on also being caressed before it will work
  • Lazy smartphone male makes his owner rub him on his bare belly so a song will play
  • Lyrics to song are nasty and inappropriate
  • The female's phone has the new touchless control and plays the song without having to be touched
  • The male portraying a phone shakes when he gets a text
  • Text is identified as being from the "other woman"

New Slim Fast Ads are Turning Off Parents <p>Please send Slim Fast (Unilever) an email letter urging them to no longer air offensive commercials and to pull their newest ads that include sexual innuendos immediately.</p> Slim Fast's new marketing strategy has backfired. They are offending their target market, especially the new moms wanting to lose the last of the baby weight. One commercial even states this, but concludes saying, "I wanna be the hottest MILF in my area code." MILF is short for "Mom I'd Like to F*ck." Slim Fast is also airing commercials mentioning "the reverse cowgirl position with the lights on" and "just when I am twisted up like a Russian gymnast, I wanna look like a Russian gymnast." On their website, they allow anyone to choose which video clip they want to view by selecting PG, R or NC-17.

Slim Fast is being irresponsible in their new ad campaign. This entire ad will make you lose your appetite, especially if you have children in the room asking you to explain the meaning of the innuendos. The Slim Fast commercials are inappropriate and tacky. These commercials have aired during the day when families are likely watching.

TAKE ACTION

Please send Slim Fast (Unilever) an email letter urging them to no longer air offensive commercials and to pull their newest ads that include s*xual innuendos immediately.

Additional step you can take to make your voice heard:

Make a personal phone call to Unilever, so your concerns are clearly understood.

Please call and politely request that Unilever no longer air provocative commercials. The number is 1-800-298-5018 (available Monday-Friday 8:30 AM-6:00 PM Eastern Time).

Last Chance to Make an Impact on Camp <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's episode of "Camp."

This week's national sponsors were: Bertolli and Tresseme (Unilever), Old Navy, Chef Boyardee (ConAgra Foods), Hellman's (Best Foods) and Celebrex (Pfizer).</p> Keep up the great work! Almost every single sponsor that One Million Moms contacted in our previous campaign decided to no longer sponsor "Mistresses." Their ads were not present in the last episode.

ABC's p*rnographic show, "Mistresses," is like a revamped "Desperate Housewives," where four friends get themselves tangled in a web of lies and crush the ones they love. Obviously, the name of the program says it all. "Mistresses" airs on Monday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT.

A show focusing on adultery, cheating and lies is the last influence our country needs. Even though the program airs a little later in the evening, it is not late enough since the bedroom scenes are completely soft p*rn and should not be aired at all.

The most recent episode included a scene at a strip club where three people leave hand-in-hand, one a dancer, insinuating a three-some. The episode ends with a graphic s*x scene. All this aired before 10:00 pm in the Central Time Zone.

ABC has sunk to an all time low with this program "Mistresses." ABC is making a trend out of selling infidelity as normal. Hollywood continually pushes casual s*x with multiple partners as acceptable behavior. One Million Moms is determined to clean up broadcast airwaves, but we need your help!

MTV Plans New Reality Series <p>Please click on link to send Viacom our prepared email letter asking that they drop all plans to air this disturbing program.</p> MTV has given the go ahead for their next reality show which is very different than any other it has ever produced. Even though it will be the opposite of the vulgar Jersey Shore, many will likely still not approve of its newest program.

The network, owned by Viacom, has ordered 12 episodes of a new series following a group of virg*ns. This will be a cross between a documentary and a soap opera, a docu-soap, and will probably include graphic content given the track record of the network. The series will likely make a mockery of those saving themselves for marriage which will have a negative impact on young people.

This show, so far untitled, follows the lives of several abstinent young people (ages 18 to 25) trying to handle their love lives, parental s*x talks, s*xually active friends, and the pressure to give in to their tempt*tions. Throughout each episode, MTV chronicles virg*n cast members from across the country, all "plagued with the overwhelming question of keeping their virg*nity… or losing it." Reality stars usually will stop at nothing and do anything to become famous and this pressure will possibly cause cast members to cave in on a decision they had made prior to being put in the spotlight.

The show will include messaging from MTV's Peabody-winning "It's Your (S*x) Life" campaign, which claims to empower young people to make better decisions about their s*xual health.

This production decision is an unusual twist from the network's normal programming, but with their strong immoral reputation, it will likely be graphic and offensive in its own right. The channel has a history of reality hits starring s*xually active party-going young people such as: The Real World, The Hills, 16 and Pregnant, Jersey Shore, and Buckwild. While it's common for such reality ensembles to have one character who is still a virg*n, this may be the first time a docu-soap reality series will have an all-virg*n cast. Previously, TLC aired a one-time special titled The Virg*n Diaries, which followed virg*ns in their 20s and 30s.

This new series has a different focus; a group of virg*ns who may or may not eventually have s*x. If cast members decide to shed their virg*nity, the act itself will not be filmed which will be the defense tactic the network will likely make to prove it is acceptable for television, but the discussions alone will be inappropriate for broadcast airwaves.

Take Action

Please click on link to send Viacom our prepared email letter asking that they drop all plans to air this disturbing program. Let them also know you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list and to consider pulling all ads from the network in protest.

Distasteful Commercial by RAC <p>If you agree this commercial is inappropriate please give Rent-A-Center a call and ask them to pull their pixelated ad immediately.</p> Rent-A-Center has joined other companies in tasteless advertising. Its latest commercial begins with a man and woman walking into their store wearing nothing (their fronts and backs are pixelated) but obvious they are both n*ked. The commercial ends with a n*de man lying on a sofa with one leg propped up exposing a pixelated cr*tch.

This isn't a first for Rent-A-Center. Rent-A-Center is following a trend in crude commercials. Their last offensive commercial had a male wearing a pair of women's th*ng p*nties peeking out over his daisy dukes while wearing a cropped tank top.

This ad is airing as early as 6:00 pm ET/5:00 pm CT when children are likely watching. It is airing on numerous networks including family channels. This ad is vile and disgusting; Rent-A-Center should be ashamed of themselves. 

TAKE ACTION

If you agree this commercial is inappropriate please give Rent-A-Center a call asking them to pull their pixelated ad immediately at 1-800-665-5510 for Customer Service or 1-800-422-8186 at their Headquarters.

NBC's newest show is irresponsible and tasteless. It is appalling that NBC intends to air a show that features immoral behavior in a positive light while attempting to draw in young viewers with the title and adolescent plot of the program.

No More Bare Bodies! <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "N*ked And Afraid." This week's national sponsors were: Carrabba's, IHOP, Kingston (The Clorox Company), Geico, TGI Friday's and Kayak.</p> As the newest show airing on the Discovery Channel, "N*ked And Afraid" has cast members who are completely uncovered and dropped in the jungle with no food, no shelter and no clothes. They must each survive with only one survival item of their choice. The program airs on Sunday evenings at 10:00 ET/9:00 p.m. CT.

The two survivalists are n*ked, not only to make it more difficult to stay warm when it rains, but also to make them as uncomfortable, vulnerable and miserable as possible while they survive in the jungle for 21 days. The two humans selected, one male and one female, are to work as a team but they have never met before in their lives. This is awkward for them and for viewers. A couple of episodes have aired which showed them uncovered, blurring out frontal body parts but never blurring out their backsides. One episode showed the female making clothes for them to cover the front and continuously replacing these items after they wear out. These articles of clothing made from leaves, vines and fur do not provide complete covering because the network has to continue to blur out body parts that are revealed from time to time.

Discovery should be ashamed to air n*dity and then call it entertainment. In fact, having the cast be n*ked is the basis for fifty percent of the show. Even though the frontal body parts are blurred out, showing so much skin is considered soft p*rn.

An additional warning to parents is that some channels, including the Hallmark Channel and TNT, are starting to advertise other networks' programs, including offensive shows like "N*ked And Afraid." Before, it was easy to just stop watching the offensive channel to avoid seeing commercials for their own inappropriate programs, but now that is changing because even family-friendly channels are showing commercials for these other networks' programs, even if they are not family-friendly. This is why we must get these appalling shows off the air and cannot just change the channel.

Do Not Let Up On "Mistresses" <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Mistresses." This week's national sponsors were: Gevalia (Kraft), Burger King, L'Oreal, Maybelline and Macy's.</p> Keep up the great work! Almost every single sponsor that One Million Moms contacted in our previous campaign decided to no longer sponsor "Mistresses." Centrum Silver (Pfizer), Subway, M & M's (Mars), Lexus and Taco Bell (YUM Brands) have pulled their ads from this provocative ABC program. Their ads were not present in the last two episodes.

ABC's newest program, "Mistresses," is like a revamped "Desperate Housewives," where four friends get themselves tangled in a web of lies and crush the ones they love. Obviously, the name of the show says it all. The name "Sinful Lifestyles" would be equally appropriate, but doesn't sound as attractive. "Mistresses" airs on Monday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT.

The tagline for the program is: "Attraction. Passion. Deception. I can't help it." Advertisements mention "Endless possibilities," "Thirteen weeks of s*duction" and "Who have you been doing?" One character even gets involved with another woman. A show full of adultery, cheating and lies is the last influence our country needs. Even though the program airs a little later in the evening, it is not late enough since the bedroom scenes are completely soft p*rn.(An asterisk is used to ensure our emails get through to those who have signed up to receive our alerts. Otherwise, referencing specific words would cause our emails to be blocked by some Internet filters.)

The past episode lost no time in letting viewers know what this show is about.  The episode began with a graphic s*x scene, ended with another p*rnographic display and mixed in a few more explicit scenes throughout the rest of the show.

ABC is making a trend out of selling infidelities as normal. Hollywood continually pushes casual s*x with multiple partners as acceptable behavior. One Million Moms is determined to clean up broadcast airwaves.

Content of 'The Fosters' has Grown Even Worse <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's program "The Fosters." This week's national sponsors were: Revlon, L'Oreal, Maybelline, McDonald's, Burger King and Greenlight Loans.</p> 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 children, but that is only the beginning of the nonfamily-friendly content in this program. But because "family" is a misleading part of the network's name, we thought another warning was needed for anyone who continues to watch the channel.

ABC Family's show "The Fosters" is about two women raising foster and biological kids while attempting to redefine marriage. New episodes 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.

Unacceptable content in the program included:

  • Moms provide children with condoms by keeping a full stock in the children's bathroom, which leads to teen s*x scene
  • When one son has unprotected s*x, one of his moms gives the girl the morning after pill without her parent's consent because her parents are Christian and would not have approved
  • One son is invited to church camp, but one mom won't allow him to go because the church doesn't approve of their family
  • Christian bashing by one mom and a girlfriend's parents give incorrect information about the Christian faith
  • One adult speaks negatively about religion while others give a distorted representation of Christianity
  • Illegal immigrants
  • A boyfriend's foreclosure party where all the kids from school are invited to consume alcohol as they trash and vandalize his home right before the bank takes possession of it
  • Lesbian mothers discuss their s*x life and later are shown getting intimate in the backseat of a car
  • The youngest foster son, probably an eleven-year-old, is made fun of at school for painting his fingernails and one of the moms says it is ok to be different like she is
  • Foster daughter shares how she was raped by a foster brother at a previous home

NBC Continues to Offend Viewers <p>Please send your email to oppose the new show "Camp" and strongly encourage NBC to cancel this program immediately.</p> NBC continues to produce inappropriate programs and plans to add to that growing list. Let's voice our concern and let NBC know of our disapproval of their newest program "Camp." The title says it all, and with a TV-14 DLS rating you can be assured this will not be for family viewing. The name of the show along with the age of the cast members will attract young viewers. The content in the preview for this program is inappropriate for tweens and teens and will send the wrong message to America's youth.  The "Camp" series premiere is scheduled for Wednesday, July 10, at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT.

One Million Moms will be as persistent as we were with NBC's "PB Club" in asking sponsors to pull their financial support. We had proof this works when "PB Club" was canceled after only three episodes.

The pilot preview included:

  • A boy saying, "By June 15th, I'm playing with bo*bs, both hands, full cupping." Later he says, "We need c*ndoms." (An asterisk is used to ensure our emails get through to those who have signed up to receive our alerts. Otherwise, referencing specific words would cause our emails to be blocked by some internet filters.)
  • The camp director says, "Poison Ivy rash is very contagious. Don't touch yourself. I know what it is like with you boys. But you got to give it a rest." Later, the director is making out with another adult counselor on her office desk.

NBC's newest show is irresponsible and tasteless, especially to air when families are likely to be watching and during the summer when kids are out of school and may stay up later in the evenings. It is appalling that NBC intends to air a show that features immoral behavior in a positive light while attempting to draw in young viewers with the title and adolescent plot of the program. One Million Moms is determined to clean up broadcast airwaves.

Shame on Kraft <p>Please send Kraft an email letter and urge them to discontinue their offensive "Let's Get Zesty" campaign immediately.&nbsp;</p> Last week's issue of People Magazine had the most disgusting ad on the inside front cover that we have ever seen Kraft produce. A full 2-page ad features a n*ked man lying on a picnic blanket with only a small portion of the blanket barely covering his g*nitals. It is easy to see what the ad is really selling. A person has to look closely to see the item the company is marketing because the salad dressing bottle is so small next to the male model, picnic basket and other food items. There is also a small Kraft logo in the upper corners with the words "Silverware Optional - Let's Get Zesty." The website getmezesty.com is listed in the bottom corner.

Kraft has gone too far and will push away loyal, conservative customers with this new ad campaign. Christians will not be able to buy Kraft dressings or any of their products until they clean up their advertising. The consumers they are attempting to attract - women and mothers - are the very ones they are driving away. Who will want Kraft products in their fridge or pantry if this vulgarity is what they represent?

One Million Moms cannot get over the gall of this company. It is unnecessary for Kraft to use s*x to sell salad dressing!

The premier episode wasted no time in letting viewers know what this show is about.  The episode began with a graphic sex scene, ended with another pornographic display, and mixed in a few more explicit scenes throughout the rest of the show. "Mistresses" centers around a group of four women who have no regrets and feel no remorse about committing adultery with someone else's husband - or cheating on their own.

Infidelity is the new trend ABC is selling as normal. It has been declared soft core p*rn not only by One Million Moms, but by 9 out of 10 reviews you find on it. The trailer for the program on ABC's website has snippets of intense s*xual scenes, but the premiere consisted of so much skin and erotic s*xual content that it probably made up half of the content during the one hour program.

Contact 'Save Me' Sponsors <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Save Me." This week's national sponsors were: Red Lobster (Darden), Applebee's, Allstate and Macy's.</p> NBC is now airing a Christian bashing program titled "Save Me," starring Anne Heche and Michael Landes. The previews alone can make believers sick to their stomachs with the blasphemous content in episodes with names like WWJD, Born Again, Beth the Prophet and The Book of Beth. The new show airs on Thursday evenings at 8:00 ET/7:00 p.m. CT.

This program is a new drama that digs up sins from the characters' pasts that lead to scandal, only to have the holier than thou character come along and play God. The main character, Beth, is the complete opposite of a saint, having lived a terrible life and always treated others badly. She claims that she was changed and that God now talks directly to her. Beth is confused why God has chosen to speak to her, but decides to call herself a prophet. She hears voices and says it is God. The network makes her appear to be a holy angel, while including crude humor, foul language and distasteful dialogue.

Content in recent episodes included a Bible with the center cut out to hide weed in Beth's home. Beth cannot remember if the drugs are hers until she caught her daughter looking for the hidden pot in the Bible. Then, Beth, her family and the neighbors discuss with excitement how they long for a gay couple to move in on their street to increase their property value and fulfill their fantasies. Also, Beth constantly refers to God as He-She, which is extremely disrespectful.

"Save Me" is a demeaning show portraying Christians in a negative light once again. Beth, the most unlikely person, attempts to fix everything and mend relationships since God supposedly talks to her and has chosen her. Her family, friends, neighbors and other church members think she is losing her mind. In this way, the program suggests that a born again Christian is a crazy person. The show's disgusting attempt to portray how the lost see believers only leads to gossip, belittling the Christian faith and poking fun at those trying to do the right thing.

Networks like NBC continue to mock Christianity, and we will not stand for it. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow it to continue without speaking up in protest. "Save Me" is another attempt to distort the truth about Christianity.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Save Me." This week's national sponsors were: Red Lobster (Darden), Applebee's, Allstate and Macy's.

Urge advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list in protest of this Anti-Christian bigotry.

Disney Channel Features Two Mom Family <p>Please send Disney an email letter requesting they omit the scene in "Good Luck Charlie" featuring two moms or do not air this controversial episode at all.</p> Alerting all parents! In a first for the Disney Channel, an episode in the next season of "Good Luck Charlie" will feature a family with two moms.

The episode will air in early 2014 as part of "Good Luck Charlie's" final season. Because "Good Luck Charlie" is coming to a close, the characters are only expected to appear in one episode. However, one episode is bad enough, and the network repeatedly airs previews in commercials leading up to new episodes and also replays episodes in reruns.

In the storyline, parents Amy and Bob Duncan (Leigh-Allyn Baker and Eric Allan Kramer) set up a playdate for preschooler Charlie (Mia Talerico) and one of her new friends. When the child arrives, the Duncans learn that Charlie's pal has two moms.

Disney Channel understands the controversial nature of featuring a same-sex couple on one of its sitcoms and said it took extra care in crafting the episode. "This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors," a Disney Channel spokesperson said. "Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness."

Just because something may be legal or because some are choosing a lifestyle doesn't make it morally correct. Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda. Disney decided to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly programming. Disney has a choice whether to produce a program with certain fictional characters; the storyline could be re-written or changed. Conservative families need to urge Disney to exclude confusing topics that children are far too young to comprehend.

Media influences children tremendously. Gay-rights advocate Miley Cyrus, who got her start on the channel's hit series "Hannah Montana," has praised the network for the decision. In a post on Twitter, she wrote, "I commend Disney for making this step into the light of this generation. They control so much of what kids think!"

Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to same-sex marriage on a network that is designed for kids. This is the last place a parent would expect their children to be confronted with topics that are too complicated for them to understand. Issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, and it is becoming extremely common and unnecessary.

Families tuning in to watch a children's network may encounter a premature discussion on sexual orientation that is completely uncalled for. Disney claims it is not responsible for Gay Days held at the Magic Kingdom because it is out of its hands, but Disney cannot hide behind that excuse any longer and pretend it is not pushing an agenda. One Million Moms will hold Disney accountable for the content produced and marketed directly to young viewers over the Disney Channel Network, which they have complete control over.

Take Action

Please send Disney an email letter requesting they omit the scene in "Good Luck Charlie" featuring two moms or do not air this controversial episode at all. If producers keep this episode as originally planned, then conservative families will have no choice but to no longer watch Disney Channel Network in their homes so they can avoid the previews, commercials and reruns for this irresponsible episode. Families will not allow Disney Channel in their homes if they must protest the network veering away from family-friendly entertainment.

SheZow Transgender Superhero <p>Please send your email to oppose the new show "SheZow" and strongly encourage Hub (Discovery and Hasbro) to drop all plans to air this program.</p> Warning to all parents! This Saturday, June 1, the premiere of the transgender superhero show "SheZow" will air on Hub at 12:30 p.m. ET/11:30 a.m. CT/9:30 a.m. PT. The media is determined to pollute the minds of our children and there is no better way to desensitize them than through a cartoon program. Everyone knows children are drawn to animated shows; both boys and girls love superheroes. This character especially will appeal to both boys and girls since the superhero represents both genders by cross dressing and being transgendered. This dude becomes the FEMALE superhero SheZow dressed in pink and purple.

The Hub network, co-owned by Discovery and Hasbro (children's toy company), produced the "SheZow" show which follows the adventures of a 12-year-old boy named Guy who uses a magic ring from his deceased Aunt to transform himself into a crime-fighting girl. Yes, you read that correctly. When Guy says the magic words "You go girl!" he becomes SheZow the superhero.

This is just another attempt by the gay, lesbian and transgender community to indoctrinate our children into accepting their lifestyles.

The Hub currently shows many children's shows like, My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake and Chuck and Friends, which are all very popular among young TV viewers and their parents. The target audience for the Hub is children aged two to eleven.

Even the chief executive of the Hub, Margaret Loesch, initially had the same reaction that most parents will have. Loesch commented, "When I first heard about the show, my reaction was 'Are you out of your minds?' Then I looked at it, and I thought, 'This is just funny.'" There are several possible reasons why she may have changed her opinion concerning this gender-bending program for kids.

There is no doubt this superhero character will confuse kids. Children desire to be just like superheroes and will mimic a superhero's every action, even to the point of dressing up in costumes to resemble the characters as much as possible. It won't be long before little boys are saying, "I want to be a girl, so I can help people and save the world!"

Christian parents don't need a TV show to contribute to what might be a real problem for some children. Loving your child is to teach them right from wrong and find help when they need it. We are all sinners, but we try to do better and get help when and where we need it in our lives. Thousands of Christian counselors and pastors are available all across the country to help anyone who is struggling with any kind of sin including homosexuality, gender identity disorder, gender confusion or gender dysphoria. If you or someone you know needs help finding a Christian counselor go to www.AACC.net for more information.

TAKE ACTION

Please send your email to oppose the new show "SheZow" and strongly encourage Hub (Discovery and Hasbro) to drop all plans to air this program.

'Save Me' Disrespects Christianity <p>Please send an email letter strongly encouraging NBC to pull the anti-Christian program "Save Me" off the air.</p> NBC is now airing a Christian bashing program titled "Save Me," starring Anne Heche and Michael Landes. The previews alone can make believers sick to their stomachs with the blasphemous content in episodes with names like, WWJD, Born Again, Beth the Prophet and The Book of Beth. The new show airs on Thursday evenings at 8:00 ET/7:00 p.m. CT.

This program is a new drama that digs up sins from the characters' pasts that lead to scandal, only to have the holier than thou character come along and play God. The main character, Beth, is the complete opposite of a saint, having lived a terrible life and always treated others badly. After choking on a sandwich, she claims that she was changed and that God now talks directly to her. Beth is confused why God has chosen to speak to her, but decides to call herself a prophet. She hears voices and says it is God. The network makes her appear to be a holy angel, while including crude humor and distasteful dialogue. This character constantly refers to God as He-She, which is extremely disrespectful. The premiere includes an affair between the main character's husband and his secretary. Beth then performs impossible actions such as striking her husband's secretary with lightening during a storm, which leaves the secretary in the hospital. Beth also makes sparks of fire when scaring her teenage daughter and her friends.

"Save Me" is a demeaning show portraying Christians in a negative light once again. It also includes worldly plots involving church members poking fun at those who have special needs and "sexting" by text message with sexual desires expressed. Beth, the most unlikely person, attempts to fix everything and mend relationships since God supposedly talks to her and has chosen her. Her family, friends, neighbors and other church members think she is losing her mind. In this way, the program suggests that a born again Christian is a crazy person. The show's disgusting attempt to portray how the lost see believers only leads to gossip, belittling the Christian faith and poking fun at those trying to do the right thing.

Networks like NBC continue to mock Christianity, and we will not stand for it. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow it to continue without speaking up in protest. "Save Me" is another attempt to distort the truth about Christianity.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter strongly encouraging NBC to pull the anti-Christian program "Save Me" off the air.

Tell them you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list in protest of this Anti-Christian bigotry.

ABC Continues to Offend <p>Please send your email to oppose the new show "Mistresses" and strongly encourage ABC to drop all plans to air this program.</p> ABC continues to produce inappropriate programs, and plans to add to that growing list. We have already contacted sister network ABC Family concerning the new show "The Fosters," and now we need to let ABC know of our disapproval of their newest program "Mistresses." The title says it all. Like a revamped "Desperate Housewives," four friends get themselves tangled in a web of lies and hurt the ones they love. "Mistresses" series premiere is scheduled for Monday, June 3, at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT.

The tagline for the program is: "Attraction. Passion. Deception. I can't help it." Advertisements mention "Endless possibilities," "Thirteen weeks of seduction" and "Who have you been doing?" One character even gets involved with another woman. A show full of adultery, cheating and lies is the last influence our society needs. Even though the program airs a little later in the evening, it is not late enough since the bedroom scenes are completely soft p*rn. (An asterisk is used to ensure our emails get through to those who have signed up to receive our alerts. Otherwise referencing specific words would cause our emails to be blocked by some internet filters.)

One Million Moms will be as persistent as we were with ABC's "Good Christian Belles" in asking sponsors to pull their financial support. We had proof this works when "GCB" was canceled after only one season.                                                                                                             

Hollywood is continuing to push casual s*x as 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, we are accepting it and are guilty of sin also. One Million Moms is determined to clean up broadcast airwaves.

Take Action

Please send your email to oppose the new show "Mistresses" and strongly encourage ABC to drop all plans to air this program.

Let ABC know you will not be watching "Mistresses" and that your family plans to avoid the network all together so there will be no chance of viewing a commercial that promotes this vulgar program earlier in the evening.

Let them also know you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list.

June 1 Gay Pride Day at Disney <p>Please click on the following link to send your email to Disney's CEO and other Disney officials urging the park to no longer "go along" with Gay Day. Disney should monitor this day and event for public displays of affection and require proper conduct and appropriate attire. This should always be policed, but especially on Gay Day.</p> As soon as school lets out at the end of May, many families will plan to take their family vacation right away. Tens of thousands will make reservations in Orlando, Florida, for the first weekend in June. Warning! Not everyone there will be excited, innocent children anticipating a fun weekend at Disney World. The first Saturday in June, homosexuals, bisexuals and transvestites will be at the Magic Kingdom with an agenda and purpose different than what would be expected at Disney.

Homosexuals will be celebrating the 23rd anniversary of Gay Day wearing matching Gay Day merchandise, such as T-shirts. There will also be transvestites dressed in drag showing their support for the event. This event is planned with the intent to expose and desensitize children to this lifestyle by same-sex couples holding hands, hugging and kissing. In short, a Gay Day participant's main goal is to be seen versus seeing Disney World.

In past years when we have contacted Disney representatives about this same issue, their response was simply that they do not sponsor this event.

On June 1, unsuspecting families will witness a well-orchestrated event that Disney says they have no control over. Disney has taken no action to stop this, which leaves families stunned and offended. So instead of a normal day at this popular theme park, parents will be angry at the harm this causes families.

Disney has been irresponsible for far too long. Disney representatives and security need to maintain a family-friendly atmosphere and require proper conduct and dress code on a daily basis.

Parents who have already made travel plans to be in Orlando during this time should make arrangements to visit a park other than the Magic Kingdom on Saturday, June 1.

Take Action:

Philips Norelco's Crude Ad <p>Please send Philips Norelco an email letter requesting they cancel their new "body grooming" commercial immediately!</p> Norelco's new ad crosses a line of decency.

The new Norelco commercial goes beyond a close facial shave to body grooming well below the chest and back. This commercial went WAY TOO FAR! During the commercial, it shows a man trimming hair in different areas of his body. Toward the end, it shows him standing with his boxer shorts down with hair falling to the floor as he uses the hair trimmer. It is implied that he is shaving in his private area. The dialogue in the ad is equally offensive. "I'd wink at me; I'd hug me," he says. Then he looks in the mirror, admires himself, and says, "I'd F*** me." The F-word is bleeped out. But then they display their website, www.IdFAQme.com. This is clearly a play on the F-word.

After receiving complaints on its Facebook page, Philips Norelco replied by posting:

"To our fans: The goal of our community is to talk about guys' shaving and grooming needs. Lately we've received some comments that our new TV ad doesn't resonate with everybody. We wanted to take a moment to let you know that we've heard the feedback. In response we're going to run the TV ads later in the evening beginning this weekend. In the meantime, we look forward to getting back to what we do best, talking about men's shaving and grooming!"

The excuse Philips Norelco gave by phone was equally dismissive, saying, "We are trying to reach a certain audience and would pass along these concerns."

Their response isn't good enough.  The ad shouldn't run at any time. It is not only inappropriate for children; it is offensive to adults also. The company's response to people's concerns is in poor taste. They are basically saying that they don't care, and they are going to run the commercial anyway. That just doesn't cut it.

Take Action

Please send Philips Norelco an email letter requesting they cancel their new "body grooming" commercial immediately!

Take it a step further:

1. Facebook users -Copy and post this message to your Facebook page and encourage others to take action!

Kmart is attracting the wrong kind of attention <p>Please send Kmart an email letter requesting they cancel their new "Ship my pants" commercial immediately!</p> Kmart (Sears Brands, LLC) has a new commercial where the whole ad is based on the slogan "I shipped my pants." This double entendre of the s-word is repeated over and over again.

The entire commercial's dialogue has various people saying ship or shipped instead of the s-word, including a family, a child, a Kmart employee, a senior citizen couple and other customers shopping in the store.

Normally, we do not provide a link since One Million Moms does not want to contribute to this filth being spread around even more, but we made an exception this time to show how ridiculous and disgusting this ad really is. The link to the commercial is provided here for reference only so you will have the information you need to voice your concern.

We have also provided the text here if you would rather not watch the video clip:

"Ship my pants, right here. You're kidding! Ship my pants. You can ship your pants right here. Did you hear that? I can ship my pants for free. Whoa! I just may ship my pants. Yes, ship your pants. Billy, you can ship your pants too. I can't wait to ship my pants Dad. I just shipped my pants, and it is very convenient. Very convenient. I just shipped my drawers. I just shipped my nightie. I just shipped my bed!"

Kmart should be more responsible in their marketing decisions. Let them know that as a parent and a consumer you are offended.

Take Action

Please send Kmart an email letter requesting they cancel their new "Ship my pants" commercial immediately!

FCC set to drop ban on f-word and nudity <h3><strong>They are seeking public comments; make your voice count! Submit your comments to the FCC, urging it to reject any changes to the current policy.</strong></h3> The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced it is considering dropping current broadcast decency standards that ban explicit profanity and "non-sexual" nudity.

You can read the press release from the FCC here.

Specifically, if enacted, the new FCC policy would allow network television and local radio stations to air the f-word, the s-word and to allow programs to show frontal female nudity, even during hours when they know children will be watching and listening.

It is accepting comments on the proposal from the viewing public until the end of April.

Current broadcast decency law prohibits expletives and nudity, even if brief or "fleeting." The Supreme Court has upheld the law as constitutionally enforceable by the FCC, despite lawsuit attempts by networks NBC and FOX to overturn it.

TAKE ACTION

Submit your comments to the FCC, urging it to reject any changes to the current policy.

The FCC will not accept general email comments. To be valid, you are required to file a formal comment via the FCC's website.

Please follow these instruction carefully, to insure your comment is accepted by the FCC:

1. Go to http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/begin?procName=&filedFrom=X.
2. Enter the code "13-86" in the "Proceeding Number" box and fill out the few remaining required fields.
3. Enter your comment in the text box provided and click "Continue."
4. From there, review your comment and click "Confirm."

Here is a sample comment you may submit:

I oppose any changes to the current FCC indecency standards that would allow television and radio stations to broadcast expletives and nudity on the public airwaves, even if brief or "fleeting."

The Supreme Court has confirmed the FCC's authority to enforce policies regarding expletives and nudity, especially during times when children are likely to be watching or listening.

Relaxing the current policy would not serve the public interest and I urge the FCC to reject all proposals that would allow for the broadcast of expletives and nudity on FCC-licensed stations.

The Secret is Out- VS is After Young Girls <p>Send Victoria's Secret an email letter urging they pull their "Bright Young Things" line immediately!</p> Controversy is nothing new for Victoria's Secret. One Million Moms has alerted parents concerning their televised fashion show so families can avoid the network during the times it airs. Parents also avoid certain parts of malls so their families will not be subjected to the soft porn displayed in the storefront windows of Victoria's Secret. Now Victoria's Secret has gone too far.

Victoria's Secret is currently targeting teens with a lingerie line called "Bright Young Things," part of their Pink collection. The line has an array of panties, from a lace trimmed thong with "Call Me" or "I DARE YOU" on the front, to underwear with the word "Wild" on it and green-and-white polka-dot hipsters reading "Feeling Lucky?" on the back.

Victoria's Secret's new teen-themed undies line sexualizes young girls. Shame on them! Victoria's Secret has been trying for years -and succeeding- to persuade younger and younger girls to purchase their sexy line of clothing.

Despite the argument that they only market to eighteen-years-old and up... we know better. Stuart Burgdoerfer, CFO Limited Brands (Parent Company of Victoria's Secret), said, "They want to be older, and they want to be cool like the girl in college, and that's part of the magic." If this disgusts you, please let Victoria's Secret know!

TAKE ACTION

Send Victoria's Secret an email letter urging they pull their "Bright Young Things" line immediately! You may also call 24 hours a day, 7 days per week:

Sales: (800) 888-8200

'Preachers' Daughters' Sponsors are Listening <p>Please send an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Preachers' Daughters." This week's national sponsors were: Shoe Carnival, Oxi Clean (Church &amp; Dwight Co.), Remax, and Geico.</p> Keep up the great work! All of the sponsors One Million Moms contacted last week decided to not advertise during this week's episode of "Preachers' Daughters." Cadbury Adams USA LLC, State Farm Insurance, Lunada Biomedical (Amberen), Barilla, Hillshire Brands (Jimmy Dean), The Hershey Company (Reese's) and Mars Inc. (Temptations Cat Treats, Uncle Ben's Rice, and M&M's) ads were not present in the most recent episode.

Barilla's direct response here:

"Thank you for your e-mail regarding our advertisement during the show, 'The Preachers' Daughters' on Lifetime network. Barilla values its role as a positive part of family mealtime and your feedback is incredibly important to us. Our commercials air as part of a general cable television media buy and the appearance of our ad on that show was not intentional. In fact, we prohibit the use of our commercial segments running during any program that does not meet our strict standards that are reflective of Barilla values. We have learned that the Barilla placement in question was made in error and we have taken steps to ensure that, moving forward, our advertising does not run during this program. Barilla is a fourth generation family owned company that prides itself on its commitment to representing and promoting the best in family values. We are acutely aware of the significance of our products to families, and our actions on families, and especially to the younger generation. Thank you again for taking the time to alert us and share your concerns."

Sincerely,

Christine N.

Consumer Relations Supervisor

Barilla America, Inc.

And State Farm's direct response here:

"As you are aware, as a company, we at State Farm take great care to be sensitive to the television programming where we place our advertising messages. We continually review all of the media where our advertising airs to ensure it meets our company's objectives and guidelines. This particular program was a mid-season replacement and while a State Farm ad appeared in it, we do not have any other ads planned to air in any future airings of the "Preachers' Daughters" program.

Please note that State Farm is a proud member of the ANA Alliance for Family Entertainment. This is an association of national advertisers encouraging the entertainment community to provide more family friendly programming options.

______________________________________________________________________________

Original Alert:

Keep up the great work! Several sponsors that One Million Moms contacted last week decided not to sponsor this week's episode of "Preachers' Daughters." Kellogg's, Turbo Tax (Intuit) and Jenny Craig pulled their ads from Lifetime's Christian-bashing program. Their ads were not present in the most recent episode, and we have included Jenny Craig's direct response here:

"Thank you for contacting Jenny Craig. Thank you for sharing your concerns about programming on the Lifetime Network. We respect your concerns. Our advertising is purchased as part of a national cable buy that includes the Lifetime Network, and we regularly monitor our buys to ensure they adhere to our programming standards. Through this process, we have found that "Preachers' Daughters" does not adhere to our programming standards and we will no longer be advertising during this specific program."

Jimmy Dean (Hillshire Brands) and Reese's (The Hershey Company) are sponsors who kept their ads running, and we will contact them again this week.

Lifetime's newest series, "Preachers' Daughters," is a reality show about Christian girls gone bad. The show airs on Tuesday evenings at 10pm ET/PT (9pm CT). Christians are deeply saddened that these "daughters of the manse" and their parents agreed to participate in this program. Of course, Lifetime undoubtedly made no effort to follow preachers' kids who are living in accordance with the Good Book. It is sad that Hollywood prefers to portray ministers' families in a negative light and hopes to see them mess up.

This reality show has three preachers' daughters in different situations that include teen pregnancy, a paternity test, drug and alcohol use, a hotel party, getting high at weed bars, lying, disrespecting parents and discussing sexual acts with sisters and friends. The episode began with an older sister saying, "The mind is warped living in a Christian box."

Instead of presenting Jesus as holy, the program is making condescending jokes and dragging Christianity through the mud. Aired in this manner, statues, paintings and stained glass windows of Jesus, crosses and scripture only mock the Christian faith.

As Christians, we know that no one is perfect other than Jesus because we are all born sinners who are saved by grace, but to publicize someone's struggles for a buck and exploit pastor's daughters in the process is pathetic.

TAKE ACTION

One Million Moms feels that after a company has met our request, we can show our support by giving these companies more of our business. We can patronize companies that support family values confidently. Sending out mass emails to them again 2 days in a row could slow down the productivity in their offices.

You are making a HUGE difference!

Original Alert:

Lifetime's newest series, "Preachers' Daughters," is a reality show about Christian girls gone bad. The show airs on Tuesday evenings at 10pm ET/PT (9pm CT).

Christians are deeply saddened that these "daughters of the manse" and their parents agreed to participate in this program. The premiere was worse than expected. It was horrifying to see how shameless these girls and their parents were in making a mockery of their faith. Of course, Lifetime undoubtedly made no effort to follow preachers' kids who are living in accordance with the Good Book.

Preachers and their families live in a fishbowl and, while no one is perfect, they have additional pressure since they are role models and all eyes are on them at all times. My pastor has said that when he decided to join the ministry he told his wife, "When you live in a glass house better keep the windows clean." In other words, being in the public eye goes with the territory, but making a profit from your children's mistakes is another story.

It is sad that Hollywood prefers to portray ministers' families in a negative light and hopes to see them mess up. The network could have proved the stereotype that preacher's kids are the worst ones to be wrong since a huge percentage of preachers' children are great kids. Instead, Lifetime found every imaginable scenario of sins parents would never want their children to commit.

This reality show has three preachers' daughters in different situations that include teen pregnancy, contemplated abortion, planning a paternity test to discover who the father is, past drug and alcohol use, dreams of becoming a porn star, lying, disrespect for parents, and discussions of sexual acts with sisters and friends.

Each of the three girls has an older sister who is concerned for her younger sister but also embarrassed by the bad choices she has made. The pastors and their wives genuinely care about their daughters, but these girls are being exploited in this reality show and their mistakes made public just for money. If the pastors thought they could witness to others during the program with prayer, sermon clips and other messages, they have failed. It is impossible to witness to the unsaved in a show that plays creepy music and even has a devil's horns and tail on one of the letters in the title. Instead of presenting Jesus as holy, the program is making condescending jokes and jabs while dragging Christianity through the mud.  Aired in this manner, statues, paintings and stained glass windows of Jesus, crosses and scripture only mock the Christian faith.

The Christian bashing program is much worse than "GCB," which was canceled when advertisers withdrew their funding after being contacted by people of faith. This program is not only offensive to pastors and their families all across the country, but to all Christians. As Christians, we know that no one is perfect other than Jesus because we are all born sinners who are saved by grace, but to publicize someone's struggles for a buck and belittle pastor's daughters in the process is despicable.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter to the sponsors for the premiere of Lifetime's anti-Christian program "Preachers' Daughters." This week's national sponsors are: Kellogg's, Sears, Turbo Tax (Intuit), Jenny Craig, Jimmy Dean (Hillshire Brands), Reese's and Hershey's.

Distasteful Jack in the Box Ad <p>Send an email letter to Jack in the Box and insist they pull their "flashing" commercial immediately, or they will leave us with no choice but to select one of the many other restaurant options available.</p> Jack in the Box restaurants will likely drive customers away if they continue advertising in a manner that offends parents. Their newest commercial has Jack telling his son how he met his mother at a rock concert. In a flashback, just as she is about to lift her shirt exposing herself to Jack, the ad ends but leaves nothing to the imagination.

Even though Jack in the Box is not located nationwide, One Million Moms has received numerous complaints from concerned parents and could not ignore this issue. It is important to let people know how they market their restaurant so they do not patronize the fast food chain while on vacation.

Jack in the Box needs to know we do not approve! Distasteful commercials are becoming the norm for this restaurant chain. Even if you do not have one located in your area, your voice needs to be heard so that other fast food restaurants will not mimic this distasteful type of advertising.

TAKE ACTION

Send an email letter to Jack in the Box and insist they pull their "flashing" commercial immediately, or they will leave us with no choice but to select one of the many other restaurant options available.

Lifetime Series 'Preacher's Daughters' <p>Please send an email letter strongly encouraging Lifetime and its parent company A&amp;E Television Networks, LLC to drop all plans to air the anti-Christian program "Preacher's Daughters."</p> Lifetime's newest series called "Preacher's Daughters" is a reality show about Christian girls gone bad. Lifetime's website describes the show in this way:

"Teaching kids right from wrong may take a village… except when it takes a congregation! Lifetime will premiere its provocative new family docuseries "Preachers' Daughters," following the lives of three families for a behind-the-altar look at what happens at home after the sermon concludes, on Tuesday, March 12, at 10pm ET/PT (9pm CT). "Preachers' Daughters" reveals a hard-hitting but often humorous look at the lives of these pastors' daughters as they balance the temptations every teenager faces with their parents' strict expectations and code of conduct as influenced by their faith."

The Christian bashing program is much worse than "GCB," which was canceled when advertisers withdrew their funding after being contacted by people of faith. This program is not only offensive to pastor's, their daughters and families all across the country, but to all Christians. As Christians, we know that no one is perfect other than Jesus because we are all born sinners who are saved by grace, but to publicize someone's struggles for a buck and belittle pastor's daughters in the process is despicable.

Lifetime should be ashamed of themselves. Networks continuously mock Christianity, and we will not stand for it. Some in the entertainment business have gone too far, for too long. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow it to continue without speaking up in protest.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter strongly encouraging Lifetime and its parent company A&E Television Networks, LLC to drop all plans to air the anti-Christian program "Preacher's Daughters."

Tell them you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place the show on their "do not advertise" list and to consider pulling all ads from the Lifetime network in protest of this anti-Christian bigotry.

P.S. Amazon began blocking our emails not long after our last campaign over the Kindle ad began. If your email was one of the ones that were blocked, you may call 206-266-7180 to voice your concern.

Inappropriate Beach Commercial <p>CKE Restaurants (Hardee's/Carl's Jr.) are currently airing inappropriate beach commercials that require our attention.</p> CKE Restaurants (Hardee's/Carl's Jr.)  are currently airing inappropriate beach commercials that require our attention.

Hardee's and sibling restaurant chain Carl's Jr. are again provoking people of faith with controversial advertising. This time the ad features a bikini-clad model whose tiny swimsuit barely covers her. This is extremely apparent in a side view where she almost falls out of her top before she unties it, exposing her bare back. She exhibits seductive behavior while eating the new Charbroiled Cod Fish Sandwich. The commercial concludes with a male checking her out.

The men and boys in our country are under attack from the common belief that "sex sells" in our culture, which is apparently CKE's favorite marketing strategy. The restaurant chain has gone too far again when porn and food go hand-in-hand.

Webster's definition of pornography is "material created for the purposes of eliciting a sexual response," and so this ad is pornographic.

CKE Restaurants, Inc., parent company of the two restaurant chains, has been using pornographic ads since 2003 when Hardee's and Carl's Jr. featured a porn king and Paris Hilton in their raunchy TV commercials.

This type of advertising is offensive and unacceptable. It is degrading to women and gives young women and girls the wrong impression, contributing to self-esteem issues, depression, and eating disorders.

This commercial is airing nationwide and are damaging to the minds of young children and adolescents.

Take Action

CKE Restaurants (Hardee's/Carl's Jr.) block our emails so a phone call alert is needed. They have ignored our emails in the past so let's burn up their phone lines.

Call CKE Restaurants (Hardee's/Carl's Jr.) at 1-800-422-4141, and then press 0. Ask the operator for the comments line so you may express your concern about their recent commercial (remember to be polite). Let them know that until CKE Restaurants make a drastic change, your family will never frequent Carl's/Hardee's again. Hopefully many will call, which may result in the possibility you will be on hold for a minute.

Disgusting Geico Ad <p>Please send an email letter to Geico regarding their new "Pig on a date" advertisement and ask that they pull this offensive commercial immediately.</p> Maxwell the Geico pig goes on a date in Geico's new piggy commercial. In Geico commercial, the pig and a young female are in a parked car on a lover's lane. The car is actually broken down, but while sitting there the girl appears to be turned on by the pig. She hints that she wants to make out. She is disappointed when she learns the tow truck is on the way and they won't be able to "pass the time."

Geico has succeeded in offending its customers with this inappropriate advertisement. One Million Moms has received numerous complaints because Geico's new commercial plays with the idea of bestiality. Parents find this type of advertising repulsive and unnecessary. Airing a commercial with an animal in it will surely grab children's attention, but this is a horrible commercial for families to see. Geico does not have our children's best interest in mind.

The Geico Marketing Team may have thought this would be humorous, but it is disgusting to see how the company takes lightly the act of bestiality. Let Geico know their new ad is irresponsible.

TAKE ACTION                                                                               

Please send an email letter to Geico regarding their new "Pig on a date" advertisement and ask that they pull this offensive commercial immediately.

Spencer Gifts: Need We Say More? <p>Please send an email letter to Spencer's corporate office explaining that because of their storefront window displays, your family will no longer visit the mall. Let them know that you plan to contact your local mall with the same message. Spencer Gifts should also put in place a carding system and have an employee card customers, not before they make a purchase, but before entering the store to ensure they are at least 18.</p> Spencer Gifts in malls across the country sell more than gag gifts. Their stores are full of adult games and toys, soft porn to pornographic material, crude greeting cards, and items with foul language on them in plain view. Currently, the huge window displays for Spencer Gifts are pornographic and satanic. It is scary to know that they are pulling in tons of teens, and not by selling mood rings and lava lamps. The store has a dark atmosphere, and influencing teens negatively.

The main poster is of a woman wearing a G-string while falling out of her corset. The second poster is almost as revealing and has a male with satanic characteristics gazing upon her. This display is degrading to women, harmful to young impressionable women, and dangerous to boys and men alike by encouraging temptation.

It doesn't do much good to complain to store managers. They say there is nothing they can do about it because the home office dictates what is in their storefront windows and on their shelves.

TAKE ACTION

  1. Please send an email letter to Spencer's corporate office explaining that because of their storefront window displays, your family will no longer visit the mall. Let them know that you plan to contact your local mall with the same message. Spencer Gifts should also put in place a carding system and have an employee card customers, not before they make a purchase, but before entering the store to ensure they are at least 18.
  2. Take it one step further and call your local mall and urge them to enforce decent storefronts and window displays since you are sure they attempt to  uphold a family-friendly environment or your family will have no choice but to shop elsewhere. Also, suggest that they require stores that sell adult material to implement a strict carding system before any customers enter the store. If this is too much to ask, then this type of store shouldn't be in a mall where families frequently visit, but instead in a free standing building so families with children can avoid it entirely or parents of teens will not have to worry where their child is shopping during a mall visit.

Icing Store Promotes 'Fifty Shades of Grey' <p>Please send an email letter urging Icing (Claire's Stores, Inc.) to remove the entire "Fifty Shades of Grey" line/collection from their shelves immediately.</p> If you are not familiar with Claire's Stores, Inc., they carry a jewelry and accessory line that caters to teens and tweens. They offer ear piercing which can draw in an even younger customer. Claire's and Icing stores, another establishment owned by Claire's Stores, Inc., are popular among young girls and teenagers and are found in malls all across the country.

Icing is now carrying an accessory line based on the vulgar and sexually explicit book, "Fifty Shades of Grey," which is inappropriate and completely out of line for any age. The company is using the trashy "Fifty Shades" brand to appeal to trend-conscious young ladies. They are selling iphone covers, CD's and keychains with the "Fifty Shades of Grey" logo and artwork.

Another inappropriate item Icing has on their shelves currently is their "Fifty Shades of Grey" jewelry line that includes earrings and bracelets made of tiny handcuffs, chains and keys. Attempting to make sex and bondage cool and profiting by it is wrong when teenagers are frequently visiting the store. Older teens may be their target market, but many tweens enter their stores and are influenced by these items as well.

Icing store claims to cater to teens 18+ and up. It is no secret that tweens and teens shop in Icing's trendy jewelry stores. Icing stores may attempt to be geared to an older demographic but obviously won't deny younger customers from entering the store since they do not card at the door. It would be a false statement to say 14 to 17 year-olds do not shop in their Icing stores when I have witnessed it myself.

Icing's Facebook comment in response to the concern for marketing this product:

"Thanks for sending us your thoughts. We love our customers and always want to hear what is on your mind. Our Icing stores are targeted to appeal to young women ages 18 and up. We choose our fabulous jewelry and accessories carefully and hope we can inspire her, cause her to smile and help her say something about herself. We do hope to see you in our stores soon."

Icing is making money off teenagers who are purchasing these items with sexual innuendos so they can fit in. This fashion statement is unacceptable for any age, older teens included. Icing is marketing merchandise that promotes promiscuity and sinful behavior.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter urging Icing (Claire's Stores, Inc.) to remove the entire "Fifty Shades of Grey" line/collection from their shelves immediately.

File an FCC Complaint: 'F-Word' Aired During Super Bowl Broadcast <p>Please click link below to send an email letter to the Federal Communications Commission if you think it's long past time for CBS to take responsibility for what goes out over the broadcast airwaves that our children are watching!</p> Together we will hold CBS accountable for airing profanity in front of children and families! The network did not keep their promise that the Super Bowl broadcast would be safe for children and families. CBS aired an unedited "F-bomb" during the Super Bowl broadcast in front of an estimated audience of 108 million Americans - including tens of millions of children and families.

CBS is to blame for not taking precautions against broadcasting it into every home in the country. The network has violated the law and shows no remorse. CBS has had ample time to apologize but has chosen not to. No apology for their error shows lack of responsibility and zero regret.

CBS should have been on their toes, especially with their history of slip-ups similar to this, and better prepared during a world championship victory celebration. The network should not be surprised that the winning Baltimore Ravens quarterback and MVP Joe Flacco might make a slip of the tongue at that emotional and exhilarating moment.

It's simple enough for the networks to have a seven-second delay during live interviews with players like it did with other parts of the broadcast, but CBS didn't even bother! And the network's executives won't even apologize! The lack of concern shows they will likely do this again unless we put a stop to it. If we do not say anything, foul language will routinely appear once every game, then twice every game, and could spiral out of control unless we do something now.

This accidental mishap has happened again and again and again, both during sporting events and live talk shows. Every time, the networks promise they will be more careful, and it will never happen again. And every time, it does. The more it happens, the more desensitized everyone becomes. No one wants their children or grandchildren to pick up this type of language.

By taking action today, you can ensure the FCC does its job in enforcing the law and holding the networks accountable for their actions. Let's make sure the billion-dollar broadcast industry takes its obligations to the public seriously.

Take Action

Please click link below to send an email letter to the Federal Communications Commission if you think it's long past time for CBS to take responsibility for what goes out over the broadcast airwaves that our children are watching!

Send a Thank You to Dodge <p>Please take a moment to let Dodge (owned by Chrysler Group LLC) know how much you appreciate their company's bold stand and for openly sharing faith while honoring farmers during this year's Super Bowl commercial.</p> On occasion, a company shows its commitment to faith and family values in such a way, it deserves to be thanked.

Dodge is such a company. Let's show our gratitude by sending a thank you email to a company who not only kept their newest ad clean and family-friendly, but also mentioned God numerous times. It stands out because of the touching, positive message. Their powerful commercial which aired during the Super Bowl was a tribute to farmers across the country. It began, "So God made a farmer," and focused on the farmer's work ethic, faith, and family. It aired a family praying together and working hard together.

The Dodge Ram brand declares 2013 the Year of the Farmer. This movement is encouraging you to join them to help raise $1 million to support Future Farmers of America and assist in local hunger and educational programs. You can find out more at Dodge's website.

A farmer's work is not for the weak. My grandfather was a farmer before he went to be with the Lord. He was a Godly man with a huge heart. His passions were Jesus, family, and farming in that order. He enjoyed the outdoors, an honest day's work, and was never materialistic. Agriculture is what he chose to study in college to do what he loved. He never really retired, just slowed down a little. He couldn't imagine his life any other way. I remember he was tough but still compassionate. I witnessed personally his faith, but also his struggles as a farmer. My father told me stories about how early they would rise to get everything done. The entire farm family is dedicated and devoted. Dodge's tribute to farmers is well deserved and long overdue.

Foul Language on 'The Biggest Loser' <p>Please send an email letter to NBC asking that they take appropriate measures to insure that the program is suitable for family viewing during primetime and also an encouraging environment for all contestants, especially for the children participating in the show. Also, let the network know that if the offensive language continues, then we are prepared to file a formal complaint with the FCC and/or contact sponsors if necessary.</p> NBC's "Biggest Loser" is back with a twist. The program, now called "The New Biggest Loser Challenge America," airs on Monday evenings at 8:00/7:00 CT with Season 14's focus on childhood obesity. This season includes three children from thirteen to sixteen-years-old ambassadors that are competing. Viewers welcomed this addition to the show, but the excitement is extinguished almost immediately once the vulgarity and obscenities from trainer, Jillian Michaels, ignite and continue through the entire show.

This week's episode has many parents pretty fired up! NBC has the audacity to say that the show is perfectly suitable for family viewing. However, while trainers need to motivate and can be tough, Jillian needs to tone it down. Way down.

At one point the children are outside the gym with trainer Dolvett Quince, and Jillian is screaming obscenities so loud in the gym that they can hear them outside. The network failed to bleep out this foul language and other choice words the trainer used during the entire program. What a disgrace! The idea of profanity being used is unacceptable and unnecessary. NBC and "The Biggest Loser" should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this type of conduct.

This show has some excellent qualities, but Jillian's profanity and conduct is ruining it. Other trainers are able to do their job without using this type of language.

Keep in mind that broadcast television requires a license to use the airwaves that you own! NBC is aware that formal complaints to the FCC could jeopardize the network's affiliates broadcast licenses. Let's remind them by giving them fair warning.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter to NBC asking that they take appropriate measures to insure that the program is suitable for family viewing during primetime and also an encouraging environment for all contestants, especially for the children participating in the show. Also, let the network know that if the offensive language continues, then we are prepared to file a formal complaint with the FCC and/or contact sponsors if necessary.

Oxygen and NBCU New Reality Special <p>VICTORY! After tens of thousands of One Million Moms members contacted NBCUniversal on Monday concerning their new reality show, the network announced that they have halted any plans to continue the "Babies Mamas" project.</p> UPDATE:

VICTORY! After tens of thousands of One Million Moms members contacted NBCUniversal on Monday concerning their new reality show, the network announced yesterday that they have halted any plans to continue the "Babies' Mamas" project. The network contemplated airing a controversial reality special titled "All My Babies' Mamas," but Oxygen, owned by NBCUniversal, has given it the axe after hearing from you.

In a statement issued Tuesday, Oxygen said, "As part of our development process, we have reviewed casting and decided not to move forward with the special." The cast included a man who fathered eleven children by ten different mothers, but the show has now been dropped before the first episode aired. Praise the Lord!

Thanks to you, the project has been curtailed. The network made this decision immediately after hearing from you! By letting your voice be heard you are making a HUGE difference in transforming our nation's culture one program at a time.

Thank you for doing your part and participating in One Million Moms, one of the most effective pro-family forces in the country.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Original Alert:

Since reality shows of families with many children have been done, Oxygen Media, LLC has decided that a program with one dad, eleven children, and ten moms is a good idea. During a Fox News interview, the dad finds nothing wrong with the show or his choices since he supports all eleven of his children on his own without any government assistance. Parents are concerned that this show sets the wrong example for today's youth on a moral standard.

The basis of the program is that the man has fathered eleven children by ten different women and a lot of drama is created by the situation. This is morally wrong, but the network finds the chaos produced to be entertaining. Oxygen Media, owned by NBCUniversal, will promote this program with commercials which will cause confusion for the children viewing them. It is appalling that this man will be paid because of his lack of values while young viewers could be desensitized into thinking this is normal.

The show is set to air soon so we need to contact NBCUniversal and let them know that this type of programming is unacceptable and they need to cancel it immediately.

TAKE ACTION

Please send NBCUniversal an email letter asking that they drop all plans to air this disturbing program. Let them also know you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list and to consider pulling all ads from the network in protest of how this show pushes immoral lifestyles directly into America's living rooms.

Contact Urban Outfitters <p>Please send an email letter urging Urban Outfitters to clean up their website immediately or your family will make a conscious effort to shop elsewhere. Also, suggest they refrain from using this type of irresponsible marketing with vulgar slogans in the future.</p> On their website, the retailer Urban Outfitters is promoting a new line of holiday sweaters with the catch phrase "F*CK YEAH HOLIDAY SWEATERS." Their website is clearly geared toward teenagers, and they should refrain from using this type of advertising.

The majority of the company's customers are between the ages of 18 and 24, but the second largest demographic are kids under 18. Bottom line, their website and products are offensive and inappropriate for a store whose primary customers are teens.

Please contact Urban Outfitters and let them know their website must be cleaned up immediately or you will avoid their stores and online store while doing your Christmas shopping. Let the company know you will also no longer shop at their stores after Christmas if this type of advertising continues. This is offensive and inappropriate for anyone, but especially for their target market.

'Person of Interest' Turned PC <p>Please send an email letter and request that they stay true to their original style instead of becoming politically correct. Let them know that they do not need to follow the trend in normalizing homosexuality, or they will lose a majority of their viewers that tuned in for clean entertainment that did not push any certain agenda.</p> Many One Million Moms supporters have contacted us in concern that a go-to show for parents and older children is no longer acceptable to watch. Several of our members were regular viewers of the CBS program "Person of Interest," until now. This is not necessarily a show for young children since it is action packed with some violence and a 14-V rating, but one of the few programs on television that is fairly clean with no foul language or nudity. One Million Moms members have said they thoroughly enjoyed this series that airs on Thursday evenings at 9:00/8:00 Central. It is a fresh, intriguing, and extremely interesting show. As a piece of "escapism" there is no better show!

One Million Moms is disappointed that CBS and Warner Brothers turned "Person of Interest" into a politically correct machine. In mid-November, an episode aired that went way too far in an attempt to normalize homosexuality when creator and producer, J.J. Abrams, decided to introduce a married lesbian couple.

Viewers find out the female heart surgeon's spouse is actually another woman. They treated this immoral relationship just like any other married couple.  Clearly this is a way of promoting the homosexual agenda by making it appear absolutely normal.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter and request that they stay true to their original style instead of becoming politically correct. Let them know that they do not need to follow the trend in normalizing homosexuality, or they will lose a majority of their viewers that tuned in for clean entertainment that did not push any certain agenda.

God is using One Million Moms to help remove this filth from television. As the hands and feet for the Lord, we are making a real difference.

______________________________________________________________________________

Original Alert:

Keep up the great work! Every single sponsor we previously contacted did not appear on the past several episodes of "666 Park Avenue." Your voice was heard!

The satanic and demonic series "666 Park Avenue" is described on ABC's website as a mix between "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Shining."

To paraphrase the description of the program given on ABC's website: The show is about a young couple who find what they think to be an amazing apartment when in fact it is haunted. Those who live in the building seduce others to get what they need and want. But how far will they go to get what they want? The finest living in the city comes at a cost.

ABC also describes the apartment building as wicked and dangerous and the owner of the building as a dark power.

The evil owner of the apartment building in the show portrays characteristics of the devil himself. This series includes: terrifying screams, death, murders, dead bodies, spirits, satanic symbols, mark of the devil, and souls bought for a price. These details are also shown during previews of the program. It airs Sunday evenings on ABC (Disney owned) at 10:00 pm ET/ 9:00 pm CT.

Take Action

Please send your email to the sponsors of ABC's new show "666 Park Avenue," and strongly encourage them to no longer financially support this program. Sponsors include: Petco, Clorox, Outback, Dyson, Dairy Queen, and Red Lobster (Darden Restaurants).

'Suits' Uses Jesus as a Curse Word! <p>Please send the prepared email and let USA Network (a division of NBCUniversal) and "Suits" know that Jesus' name is not to be used as a swear word.</p> Every night on TV and every week in the movie theaters, the name of Jesus is being used not to refer to God's Son, but rather as a curse and swear word. The Bible says this is wrong!

The Ten Commandments clearly proclaim, "You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain."

In the USA Network's show "Suits," the name of Jesus is blasphemed and hauled through the sewer constantly. And even ONCE is too much.

Now suddenly in the second season, the characters are all dragging Jesus' name through the mud! This is typical of current television, and our children are being desensitized by it so that some don't even recognize blasphemy when they hear it.

God is never glorified when his Son's name is taken in vain. You and I cannot let this continue.  One Million Moms intends to do something about it.

'The New Normal' Blasphemes Jesus <p>Please email the sponsors of NBC's "The New Normal" and strongly encourage them to no longer financially support the anti-Christian program. Sponsors include: Disney, ACE Hardware, Olive Garden, Revlon, L'Oreal and Fisher-Price (Mattel).</p> If there are any Christians who continue to watch "The New Normal," then this past episode would be their last after it insulted any viewers of faith. The program has constantly ridiculed anyone who believes differently than its makers do and even mocks conservative values. It has crossed a line that no one should ever cross, and that is blasphemy of Jesus Christ. The entire previous episode showed disrespect of the Christian faith.

For NBC Network to air a Christian bashing program is disgraceful. In the past episode of "The New Normal," the homosexual couple is searching for godparents for their new baby, since they are no longer spiritual themselves. Here are just a few of the direct quotes:

  • "Jesus was ripped."
  • "God has taken a divine dump on my dream."
  • "Twelve dudes sitting around gossiping and drinking wine- you call that the Last Supper- I call that a Tuesday night."
  • While looking at a painting of Mary in a cathedral, "Hi Mary. I'm a virgin too. I've also slept in a barn with three Wisemen."
  • While looking at a painting of Jesus, "Sorry, I shouldn't be talking smack about your mother, but you know who judges me- your Father."
  • "I'm gay. I lay with a man Leviticus style."
  • "Do you think the church can change?"
  • Priest says, "Contraire to popular opinion being gay isn't a sin. Church is not anti-gay. You must fight for what you believe."
  • Nine-year-old girl says, "We don't know what happens (to us) after death."

This anti-Christian bigotry is an attack on our faith. We must take a stand for our Savior.

TAKE ACTION

Please email the sponsors of NBC's "The New Normal" and strongly encourage them to no longer financially support the anti-Christian program. Sponsors include: Disney, ACE Hardware, Olive Garden, Revlon, L'Oreal and Fisher-Price (Mattel).

Help us urge advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list and consider pulling their commercials from this program immediately.

Email Viacom To Cancel NickMom <p>Please send an email to the president and other key executives at Viacom and urge them to cancel NickMom immediately.</p> Apparently, Viacom-owned Nickelodeon doesn't mind negative publicity. Just a month after the Jason Biggs incident that AFA reported on, the children's network is still on parents' bad list. Nick Jr. launched NickMom recently, and it is not what you might think. This new block of nightly, adult-themed Nick Jr. programming is completely inappropriate for a kids' channel.

The two-hour block includes a reality show called "NickMom Night Out" and "What Was Carol Brady Thinking," in which "Brady Bunch" reruns are laced in a style similar to VH1's "Pop Up Video," with racy thought bubbles added to represent what was really on the family matriarch's mind in the scene. (Example: "Does Mike think needlepoint is foreplay?").

"NickMom Night Out" airs foul language and women in the buff with carefully placed black bars and even cowboy boots to cover strategic areas during comedy scenes.

Obviously, the channel behind "Dora the Explorer" is modeling its new block after "Adult Swim," which airs at 10:00 p.m. on a competing kiddie cable channel. However, unlike the Cartoon Network, Nick Jr. does not air separate East and West coast feeds. Therefore, the block airs at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. CT/7:00 p.m. PT and even earlier in the afternoon in Hawaii, at a time when children are still watching.

NickMom is a profanity filled, perverted comedy that combines characteristics of a women's trashy talk show with standup comedians. One Million Moms will not sit quietly while Viacom's corporate greed and irresponsibility destroy one of the few twenty-four-hour preschool channels available.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email to the president and other key executives at Viacom and urge them to cancel NickMom immediately.

'New Normal' Refers to One Million Moms <p>Please email the sponsors of NBC's "The New Normal" and strongly encourage them to no longer financially support this program. Sponsors include: Dyson, Fisher-Price (Mattel), Sprint, LensCrafters, Synsodyne (GlaxoSmithKline), Nissan, Loreal, Car Max, and Wonderful Pistachios (Paramount Farms Int., LLC).</p> Last week's episode of "The New Normal" referenced One Million Moms. Even though they attempted to poke fun, the show actually made One Million Moms look good. The conservative grandmother chose three girls who are raised in traditional families who share the same beliefs she does to help her cancel her granddaughter's fake wedding. She tells them, "I need the help of every one of you future One Million Moms."  By the way, thanks for the free publicity!

Any conservatives that may have briefly checked out the show primarily to see how bad it is who have never heard of One Million Moms just found out about our organization on their dime. If the writers thought this would get us off their backs they are sadly mistaken. We will continue our attempts to have this program canceled because it goes against Biblical principles and Christian values.

The grandmother does misrepresent conservatives at times since her character is not consistent in her actions, but focusing on last night's episode she was pretty accurate. She stated marriage is sacred and between one man and one woman. She was upset that her granddaughter was having a "real" pretend wedding. They didn't actually go through with it when the nine-year-old girl found out the ten-year-old boy had cheated on her the day before by kissing another girl.

The grandmother is not pleased with the pretend wedding and says that marriage is not for children or homosexuals; next it will be for dogs. She does make the statements that, "Marriage is a sacred vow. Marriage must be kept sacred. Homosexuals are trying to redefine marriage. Marriage is to be taken seriously."

Chick-fil-A was also mentioned when the grandmother said she was going to eat there, and the homosexuals' assistant said she missed Chick-fil-A. The two homosexual men just shook their heads saying no that they were not eating at this particular restaurant.

One Million Moms continues to discourage our supporters from watching the program to insure we do not help the show's ratings. The producer, open homosexual Ryan Murphy, is playing a game so One Million Mom supporters will tune in. Murphy even stated in an interview after our campaign was launched that our supporters should watch because One Million Moms will be represented during the program. One Million Moms records all major networks and will continue to monitor the program to keep you informed.

The program ends with one of the homosexual men proposing to his partner, and he asks, "Will you be my husband?" Clearly, NBC's "The New Normal" is attempting to desensitize America and our children.

Keep up the great work! The majority of the sponsors you contacted last week were not present this week.

Progress with 'The New Normal' <p>Please email the sponsors of NBC's "The New Normal" and strongly encourage them to no longer financially support this program. Sponsors include: Old Navy (GAP), Seven Up (Dr. Pepper/Seven Up, Inc.), Dreft (P &amp; G), and T-Mobile.</p> Keep up the great work! With one exception (V-8 owned by Campbell Soup Company), the majority of the sponsors we previously contacted did not appear on this past week's episode of "The New Normal." One Million Moms will continue to monitor and send out updates for the sponsors who have permanently removed themselves from sponsoring the show and if any reappear. Once again, we need to contact new sponsors of this irresponsible program that has no business being on television at all, especially on NBC.

To sum it up, "The New Normal" is about a homosexual couple who hire a surrogate to have their baby. Through the character of the grandmother, the show mocks anyone who disagrees with their sinful lifestyle choice. The show refers to those who oppose their decision as intolerant and a bigot.

The third episode was mostly a political debate largely pro-Obama and anti-Romney. Planned Parenthood, women's right (it never came out and said pro-abortion but it was obvious what the program was referring to), same-sex marriage, and healthcare for all were the controversial topics discussed during the 30 minute episode. The show was a platform for the liberal agenda. The program was also extremely racist and made anyone who has traditional values appear to be racist. This is a false representation. The twist at the end was when an African-American man revealed he was a Republican. The show is demeaning to conservatives and degrading to the black community.

The show airs on Tuesday evenings at 9:30/8:30 p.m. Central. It is no surprise that openly gay Ryan Murphy is one of the executive producers and director. Murphy also brought us "American Horror Story," "GLEE," and "Nip/Tuck."

NBC is using public airwaves to continue subjecting families to the decay of morals and values, belittling the sanctity of marriage and attempting to redefine marriage. This program is harmful to our society and damaging to our culture.

Millions of Americans strongly believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman. In fact, thirty-two states have voted in defense of traditional marriage between one woman and one man. Out of the states who voted, it is 100% in favor of traditional marriage.NBC's "The New Normal" is attempting to desensitize America and our children.

To sum it up, "The New Normal" is about a homosexual couple who hire a surrogate to have their baby. Through the character of the grandmother, the show mocks anyone who disagrees with their sinful lifestyle choice. The script refers to those who oppose their decision as intolerant and a bigot during the show.

In the second episode, the ultra conservative grandmother catches the nine-year-old girl kissing a boy. The grandmother immediately takes her to Planned Parenthood. She wanted the little girl put on birth control. Her actions and opinions are constantly contradicting each other. Then the little boy makes extremely perverted comments and also hits on the grandmother. Later, the gay couple is asked to stop kissing in an outlet store by a father who is shopping with his entire family. When asked to stop the PDA the gay couple felt mistreated even though heterosexual couples are not typically kissing on the mouth while shopping, parents feel that any form of PDA is not acceptable in front of children, but the gay couple still felt singled out. The father did not want to have to explain homosexuality to his little girl so he was portrayed as the bad guy.

The show airs on Tuesday evenings at 9:30/8:30 p.m. Central. It is no surprise that openly gay Ryan Murphy is one of the executive producers and director. Murphy also brought us "American Horror Story," "GLEE," and "Nip/Tuck."

Contact 'The New Normal' Sponsors <p>Please email the sponsors of NBC's "The New Normal" and strongly encourage them to no longer financially support this program. Sponsors include: Olive Garden, Macy's, Arby's, and Walgreens.</p> NBC has begun airing their new show "The New Normal" with the subtitles "A post-modern family" and "She's Having Their Baby." NBC's website describes the program as: "These days, families come in all forms - single dads, double moms, sperm donors, egg donors, one-night-stand donors... It's 2012 and anything goes. Bryan and David are a Los Angeles couple and they have it all. Well, almost. With successful careers and a committed and loving partnership, the one thing missing is a baby."

To sum it up, this show is about a homosexual couple who hire a surrogate to have their baby. The first episode mocks anyone who disagrees with their sinful lifestyle choice through the character of the grandmother. The script refers to those who oppose their decision as intolerant and a bigot during the show. There is also a graphic bedroom scene where the surrogate walks in on her now soon to be ex-husband who is completely nude and in the act with another woman. The most saddening is the child who plays the part of the surrogate's eight-year-old daughter who is cast in a program that is inappropriate for anyone, but especially for someone her age that is being exposed to information she is too young to understand.

This unsuitable program airs before 10:00 p.m. which is primetime and when children are likely awake especially in the Central Time Zone. The show airs on Tuesday evenings at 9:30/8:30 p.m. Central. It is no surprise that openly gay Ryan Murphy is one of the executive producers and director. Murphy also brought us "American Horror Story," "GLEE," and "Nip/Tuck."

Urban Outfitters – Dangerous Influence <p>Please send an email letter urging Urban Outfitters to discontinue this inappropriate t-shirt line immediately.</p> The clothing chain Urban Outfitters is promoting a provocative new line of t-shirts with slogans such as "I Vote For Vodka" and "USA Drinking Team" which promote underage drinking. On their website under women's graphics, other versions modeled by young women who appear to be teenagers wear tees that read "I Drink You're Cute" in blurred letters and "Spooning Can Lead to Forking." Sadly, what's apparently meant to be a joke isn't far from the truth. Alcohol use is associated with increased rates of sexual activity for teens which can lead to contraction of STDs or teen pregnancy.

These products are offensive and inappropriate for a store whose primary customer is teens and tweens. The majority of the company's customers are between the ages of 18 and 24, but the second largest demographic are kids under 18.

It is unacceptable for a company to market alcohol related material to teens because kids should not be wearing these disturbing t-shirts that glorify drinking and sexual activity.

Take Action

Please send an email letter urging Urban Outfitters to discontinue this inappropriate t-shirt line immediately, or you will make a conscious effort to shop elsewhere. Also, suggest they refrain from using this type of irresponsible marketing with provocative slogans in the future.

ABC Continues to Produce Anti-Family Programs <p>Please send your email to oppose ABC Family Channel's pilot "The Fosters" and strongly encourage ABC to drop all plans to air the program.</p> Obviously, ABC has lost their minds. 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 Family has approved a series pilot from Jennifer Lopez's production company, Nuyorican, about a lesbian couple and their diverse family. Many families have already discovered that ABC Family Channel is anything but family-friendly. But because of family being part of the network's name, we thought a warning should still be sent out for anyone who continues to watch the channel. A premiere date has not been set, but One Million Moms wanted to sound the alarm about this new series. It will be airing on the network soon unless we do something about it. They are in the beginning stages.

ABC Family reported the comedy-drama pilot, working with the title "The Fosters," is about two women raising a "21st century," 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. One Million Moms is not sure how the explanation will be given on how the biological children were conceived. None of this material is acceptable content for a family show.

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. 

Lopez will be an executive producer for the hour-long project. Casting has not been announced. It's still in the pilot stage and hasn't been picked up for a series yet. Let's stop this dead in it its tracks.

 

Take Action

Please send your email to oppose ABC Family Channel's pilot "The Fosters" and strongly encourage ABC to drop all plans to air the program.

Let ABC know you and your family will not be watching "The Fosters" if it is in fact picked up for a series.

Let them also know you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list and consider pulling all ads from the ABC network in protest.

The satanic and demonic series is described on ABC's website as a mix between "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Shining."

To paraphrase the description of the program given on ABC's website: The show is about a young couple who find what they think to be an amazing apartment when in fact it is haunted. Those who live in the building seduce others to get what they need and want. But how far will they go to get what they want? The finest living in the city comes at a cost.

ABC website also describes the apartment building as a wicked, dangerous power, and the owner of the building as a dark power.

The owner of the apartment building in the show portrays characteristics of the devil himself. Previews include terrifying screams, death, spirits, satanic symbols, and souls bought for a price. It premieres Sunday, September 30 on ABC (Disney owned) at 10:00 pm ET/ 9:00 pm CT.

Disgusting Skittles Ad <p>Please send an email letter to Skittles (owned by Wrigley Co. and now a part of Mars, Inc.) regarding their new "Walrus" commercial and ask that they pull this offensive commercial immediately.</p> We are not sure of Skittles' thought process behind their new ad, but if they are attempting to offend customers, they have succeeded. Skittles' newest "Walrus" commercial includes a teen girl making out with a walrus. The two are on a sofa in an apartment kissing on the mouth when her shocked roommate walks in on them. Parents find this type of advertising inappropriate and unnecessary. Does Skittles' have our children's best interest in mind? Skittles candies are for all ages, but their target market is children.

We don't see what he sees, but the cringe on his face and wide eyes tell us enough. This boy catches his parents in the act and walks away in shock.

"Parents in bed, but it's just eight o'clock; that's why they taught, you should always knock," a singer tells us. "He needs Ragu, 'cause growin' up's tough. Give him Ragu, he's been through enough." The parents then give him a plateful of spaghetti to calm him down. The Ragu is supposed to make him feel better. It's all part of Ragu's "Long Day of Childhood Calls for America's Favorite Pasta Sauce" campaign.

This entire ad not only makes someone lose their appetite, but Ragu is also being irresponsible in their new campaign. Instead of being helpful, it is harmful to children in the name of so-called humor. The Ragu commercial is inappropriate and tacky. The commercial has aired during the Olympics when families are likely watching.

TAKE ACTION

Please send Ragu (Unilever) an email letter urging them to no longer air offensive commercials and to pull their newest "Long Day of Childhood" ad immediately.

Avoid JCP this Father's Day <p><span>Make a personal phone call now to your local JC Penney's store manager.</span></p> One Million Moms (OMM) is disturbed that JC Penney's (JCP) is continuing down the same path of promoting sin in their advertisements. In JCP's June catalog, there is another homosexual ad, but this time with two dads celebrating Father's Day. The advertising booklet began arriving in mailboxes yesterday. If their marketing department follows the same plan they did in May, this mailer will be available to view on their website on June 1.

The ad shows two men on the floor playing and hugging their two children at home. It reads, "First Pals - What makes Dad so cool? He's the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver - all rolled into one. Or two. Real-life dads Todd Koch and Cooper Smith with their children Claire and Mason."

It is obvious that JCP would rather take sides than remain neutral in the culture war. JCP will hear from the other side so they need to hear from us as well. Our persistence will pay off! One day we will answer for our actions or lack of them. We must remain diligent and stand up for Biblical values and truth. Scripture says multiple times that homosexuality is wrong, and God will not tolerate this sinful nature.

OMM will continue to avoid shopping at JCP until they take a neutral stand. If you receive their advertising booklets or catalogs in the mail, OMM recommends you write "REFUSED...RETURN TO SENDER" on your JCPenney catalog and try sending them back. If they receive an onslaught of their returned magazines, they will take notice. Also, you may email, call, or use their contact form on their website to unsubscribe from their mailers so you will no longer have these delivered to your home. If you have a store credit card, you can close your account, if you have not already done so, to help get the message across that you have no plans to shop with them in the future. Be sure to tell them why you are unsubscribing and canceling your credit card.

TAKE ACTION

Since the corporate office doesn't consider your call important and are blocking our emails, please call, or visit, your local store manager. Local managers are more likely to listen to your concerns and pass them along to the corporate office.

Please be kind and request that the store managers to pass along your concern to corporate and urge them to remain neutral in the cultural war.

You can find the phone number of your local store local store here, or in your local phone directory.

Making Progress with 'The Soul Man' <p>Please send an email letter strongly encouraging sponsors to drop all plans of financially supporting the anti-Christian TV Land program "The Soul Man."</p> UPDATE: Way to go! Every sponsor we contacted, excluding one, has decided to no longer sponsor the "The Soul Man." IKEA, Allstate, PetMeds, and Chobani have pulled their ads from the Christian-bashing NBC program. Their ads were not present in the most recent episode(s).

One of TV Land's newest sitcoms, "The Soul Man," blasphemes the name of Jesus Christ and mocks pastors. The mockery is similar to "Good Christian Belles," also known as "GCB." The program focuses on one family but is far from family-friendly programming. The show is described as: "R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce 'The Voice' Ballentine (Cedric The Entertainer) was living the high life in Las Vegas at the top of the music charts when he got 'the calling' and decided to relocate to St. Louis with his family to become a preacher in his father's church. However, his wife and daughter are not exactly eager to give up the fabulous superstar life for their new humble one." The show airs on Wednesdays at 10/9c.

Networks like TV Land (owned by Viacom) continue to mock Christianity. This program includes vulgarity, sexual innuendos, and portrays Christians in a negative light. Here are just a few examples from the past two episodes:

  • Rev. Ballentine has women's underwear thrown to him while singing on stage as a guest at a club like the old days when he sang R&B.
  • Ex-girlfriend visits Reverend at the pastor's study alone for marriage counseling and begins kissing him, and then she shows up at his house and begins kissing his wife.
  • Wife hosts tea at her home for the women at the church, which the Reverend's cousin crashes and spikes the punch with a fifth of Vodka.
  • Cousin liquors up church women to sell her line of adult toys, and the women are shoving each other out of the way to get what they want.
  • Women make their purchases and worry how it will appear on their bank statement; they are reassured it will be under a discrete name like economic stimulation.
  • Reverend comes home and sits on sofa which accidentally turns on a vibrating toy that is hidden under a pillow.
  • Reverend is quizzed heavily by a group of pastors that resemble the mob to earn their approval and gain acceptance in their circle.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter strongly encouraging sponsors to drop all plans of financially supporting the anti-Christian TV Land program "The Soul Man."

The sponsors of this week's episode of "The Soul Man" include: T-Mobile, Sears, Toyota, Applebees (Dine Equity), and Procter & Gamble (Olay and Swiffer).

Sears has a problem telling the truth <p>Call Sears' corporate headquarters directly and urge Chairman Edward Lampert to keep his company's word to stop selling pornography.</p> Along with explicit nudity, Sears now adds books on bestiality and pedophilia to its website

After our last Sears Action Alert, Sears assured the American Family Association (AFA) and One Million Moms (OMM) it was updating filtering equipment and enforcing strict guidelines to prevent sexually explicit products being available on their websites.

We took Sears spokesmen at their word and… apparently shouldn't have. Sears made the same promise in 2010. They broke their word then too.

Less than two months after Sears' latest promise in May 2012, the pornography has returned. Sears continues to offend their customers with nudity in ads for the posters they sell and the naughty lingerie.

But that's not the worst of it. Sears has added books on pedophilia to its website. Sears also sells books on bestiality and zoophilia. These books are "how to" manuals for people who want to have sex with animals. I don't want to be too graphic, but they contain descriptions, drawings and sketches beyond belief.

Technology allows Sears to remove and stop selling these products within minutes, if company executives want to. I hope you will take my word for it, but if you must see the proof, you may look for yourself on Sears' website.

Recently, AFA and OMM asked twice for a face-to-face meeting (at our expense), so we could share our concerns in person. We asked for only an hour of their time. Both times, Sears specifically said its people did not want to meet with us.

Take Action

Unless Sears hears from you, the company will continue to sell hardcore pornography. If you can only do one thing, please:

Make a personal phone call to Sears, so your concerns are clearly understood. Call Sears' corporate headquarters directly and urge Chairman Edward Lampert to keep his company's word to stop selling pornography. The number is 847-286-2500.

Additional steps you can take to make your voice heard:
1. Send an email in your own words using Sears' website feedback form.
2. Make a call to the Sears Public Relations Department at 847-286-8371, option 1.
3. Call your local store manager and politely ask him to pass your concern along to his district manager. You can find your local store phone number here, or in your local yellow pages.

Oreo - No Longer Favorite Cookie <p>Send your email letter to Oreo (Kraft Foods) now! Ask that they remain neutral in the culture war versus promoting the homosexual agenda.</p> Oreo (Kraft Foods) is joining others in supporting Gay Pride. This month is LGBT Pride month and only time will tell if Oreo's support will continue. The company announced its support for same sex marriage on the Oreo Cookie Facebook page with a picture of a rainbow version of their famous cookie. Oreo's Facebook thread read, "Proudly Support Love!" with a graphic that read "June 25| Pride."

The cookie maker is quick to point out that the picture is simply an ad, and doesn't depict a true product. But it announced to American consumers where it stands on the controversial "gay" marriage issue nonetheless. Homosexuals are weighing in, hoping Oreo makes the fake cookie real.

Moms are aware that Kraft manufacturers a long list of popular products, but Kraft needs to know that there are competitors that make similar products. Moms also know that store brand products will help the grocery bill in this tough economy.

As we know, this stand has not gone well for other companies. For those who do not know, JC Penney (JCP) has parted ways with their president, Michael Francis, after only eight short months. JCP CEO, Ron Johnson, admitted in a recent statement that their Father's Day sales were a bust. "Penney's shares fell 8.8% Tuesday (after Francis' departure was announced) to their lowest level in a year, and store traffic was down 10%." This is in addition to their huge, first quarter loss. According to the Wall Street Journal, "J.C. Penney posted a $163 million loss and said sales fell 20% in the first three months of its fiscal year."

This loss should tell companies that siding with radical homosexuals has its price. Another example is Ford Motor companies. Obviously, the company's far-Left approach is driving away shoppers and its executives. Whether J.C. Penney will learn from its mistakes is yet to be seen. But JCP's freefall should serve as a warning to other companies before they decide to cater to homosexuals and their sinful lifestyle choices.                                 

There are plenty of cookies on the market for moms to buy for their families that do not support liberal causes. We have a choice. Kraft's brands include Oreo, Cadbury, Maxwell House, and Nabisco.

One Million Moms will continue to support companies in the future with full understanding where they stand on principles and morality. We will choose to stay away from those who do not support moral decency.

TAKE ACTION

Kraft needs to hear from you. Supporting the homosexual agenda verses remaining neutral in the cultural war is just bad business. If Christians cannot find corporate neutrality with Kraft then they will vote with their pocketbook and support companies that are neutral. Send your email letter to Oreo (Kraft Foods) now!

'The Soul Man' blasphemes Christ <p>Please send an email letter strongly encouraging TV Land and parent company Viacom to drop all plans to air the anti-Christian program "The Soul Man."</p> TV Land's newest sitcom "The Soul Man" blasphemes the name of Jesus Christ and mocks pastors as well. The mockery is similar to "Good Christian Belles" also known as "GCB" with a family sitcom feel. The word family is used loosely since the program focuses on one family but is far from family-friendly programming. The show is described as: R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce "The Voice" Ballentine (Cedric The Entertainer) was living the high life in Las Vegas at the top of the music charts when he got "the calling" and decided to relocate to St. Louis with his family to become a preacher in his father's church. However, his family members - including wife Lolli (Niecy Nash) and daughter Lyric (Jazz Raycole) - are not exactly eager to give up the fabulous superstar life for their new humble one. "The Soul Man" premieres Wednesday, June 20 at 10/9c.

Pilot includes:

  • Pastor's brother and father use foul language and the father is a retired preacher whose uses the excuse he isn't a minster anymore.
  • Lolli wears inappropriate attire, mostly low cut, tight dresses.
  • Ladies at the church hate the pastor's wife or at least that is how Lolli feels.
  • Bribery, gossip, and jealousy
  • Female church member hits on Boyce and is disappointed when she concludes his marriage is going to make it.
  • Lolli tells Lyric, "We are all having a hard time on account of your father" referring to his decision to become a pastor.
  • Pastor's brother says, "Wow! People still come to church? Well, old people. Oh! Hot chicks in Jesus name!"
  • Lyric tells MTV, "My dad's only been a minister for a few weeks, and I'm still cool!" when attempting to be casted on one of MTV's reality shows.
  • Church member, "Didn't put me to sleep with long winded Scripture stuff."
  • Lolli tells Boyce, "Lack of booty makes you moody!" and "Women's parts start percolating when husband does chores."
  • Lyric pitches fit and says, "I liked being a celebrity's daughter, but not a preacher's daughter. I hate it!"
  • Boyce and Lolli sing "I want to have S*x with You" together at home and also played when they role the credits. A piece of the lyrics "I want to have sex with you,… in the kitchen, in the bathroom,… sitting down, standing up."

Networks like TV Land (owned by Viacom) continue to mock Christianity. In 2010 Viacom created an animated show 'JC,' which was the acronym for Jesus Christ. The show was canceled before it aired because we took action. Christians should not sit idly by and allow it to continue without speaking up in protest.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter strongly encouraging TV Land and parent company Viacom to drop all plans to air the anti-Christian program "The Soul Man."

Tell them you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list and consider pulling all ads from the TV Land network in protest of this Anti-Christian bigotry.

DC Comics and Marvel Gay Superheroes <p>Please send DC Comics (Warner Bros. Entertainment Company) and Marvel (Disney) an email urging them to change and cancel all plans of homosexual superhero characters immediately. Ask them to do the right thing and reverse their decision to have sexual orientation displayed to readers.</p> Part 1: DC Comics recently announced one of their most popular, but as of yet unnamed, prominent characters will soon be coming out of the closet. DC Comics, owned by Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, has decided that one of their beloved superheroes will be homosexual. Who will they choose; Batman, Superman, Flash, Green Lantern, Plastic Man, or another one of their characters that children look up to?

Last year, DC Comics Co-publisher Dan DiDio said that the company would not change the sexual orientation of an existing superhero and would bring in a new one altogether. Parents may have been able to avoid a new character since it would not be one many children have grown to admire. DiDio has changed his mind and will not be introducing a brand new character. They will feature an existing character who was previously assumed to be straight, will now become openly gay. Senior VP Sales Bob Wayne said DiDio's view 'had evolved', comparing the shift to Barack Obama's recent endorsement of same-sex marriage, according to a report. DiDio did not specify which character would 'come out' or in which issue it would be featured. It will likely be a June issue during LBGT month, joining lesbian character Batwoman.
 
Part 2: And to make matters more shocking, Marvel, now owned by Disney, followed DC Comics' announcement with a surprise of their own. Northstar, Marvel's first openly gay hero, is going to tie the knot with his boyfriend in the current issue of "Astonishing X-Men." This is the first same-sex wedding in a superhero comic book.

In "Astonishing X-Men" #50, which hit comic shop shelves Wednesday, Northstar proposes to his boyfriend, Kyle, a fellow snow sports enthusiast who possesses no superpowers. The couple will seal the deal in issue #51, slated for a June 20 release.

"The story of Northstar and Kyle is universal, and at the core of everything I write: a powerful love between two people who have to fight for it against all odds," said X-Men comic writer Marjorie Liu in a statement.

Children desire to be just like superheroes. Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up in costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible. Can you imagine little boys saying, "I want a boyfriend or husband like X-Men?"

This is ridiculous! Why do adult gay men need comic superheroes as role models? They don't but do want to indoctrinate impressionable young minds by placing these gay characters on pedestals in a positive light. These companies are heavily influencing our youth by using children's superheroes to desensitize and brainwash them in thinking that a gay lifestyle choice is normal and desirable. As Christians, we know that homosexuality is a sin (Romans 1:26-27).

Unfortunately, children are now being exposed to homosexuality at an early age. Comic books would be one of the last places a parent would expect their child to be confronted with homosexual topics that are too complicated for them to understand. Children do not know what straight, homosexual, or coming out of the closet even means, but DC Comics and Marvel are using superheroes to confuse them on this topic to raise questions and awareness of an alternative lifestyle choice. These companies are prompting a premature discussion on sexual orientation.

Northstar's wedding will be the first same-sex wedding in the world of mainstream superhero comics, but not the first gay comic books character. Earlier this year One Million Moms emailed Toys 'R' Us concerning the "Life With Archie" No. 16 with two gay characters getting hitched. Toys 'R' Us had the audacity to display "Archie- Just Married" at the front of the store by the checkout counters.

Please send DC Comics (Warner Bros. Entertainment Company) and Marvel (Disney) an email urging them to change and cancel all plans of homosexual superhero characters immediately. Ask them to do the right thing and reverse their decision to have sexual orientation displayed to readers.

GAP 'Be One' Billboard <p>Please send your email to GAP now and let them know you are offended by their disrespect for family values and common decency. Request they remove their "BE ONE" billboard immediately.</p> In Los Angeles, CA, GAP has a billboard located downtown that reads: "GAP- BE BRIGHT- BE ONE" with two homosexual men pressed together under a shared t-shirt. They are hugging each other and facing the camera cheek-to-cheek. "BE ONE" is in large letters which emphasizes the same-sex relationship.

GAP Inc. Brands, including Old Navy, Banana Republic, Piperlime, and Athleta, does not deserve, nor will it get, money from conservative families across the country. Supporting GAP is not an option until they decide to remain neutral in the culture war. GAP needs to seriously consider how their immoral advertising affect the youth of our nation.

Christians should urge for the removal of GAP's offensive billboard in Los Angeles and any other city where it is located. GAP will also need to cancel any plans to use the "Be One" ad campaign elsewhere including store-front posters, its website, and in print magazine ads.

GAP Inc. Brands approved this type of ad in public areas where families and children are sure to see it. Please send your email to GAP now and let them know you are offended by their disrespect for family values and common decency.

Contact Clorox on New Liquid-Plumr Ad <p>Please send Liquid-Plumr (The Clorox Company) an email letter urging they pull this offensive commercial immediately and go back to their more responsible advertisement methods.</p> Clorox Needs to Clean Up Their Ads Fast

Liquid-Plumr presents two sexy plumbers in their new commercial. The Clorox Company introduces the Liquid-Plumr Double Impact Snake and Gel System in this ad which is full of sexual innuendos as well. They are attempting to use sex to sell a product to unclog drains.

The commercial starts off with a woman in a supermarket daydreaming about what this new Liquid-Plumr product has to offer. She says, "Double impact," twice as she reads the bottle. In her dream she is at home and answers the door to find a sexy plumber. The plumber is nice looking with huge biceps and a tight shirt. He says, "I'm here to snake your drain." She says come on in and he walks upstairs. The doorbell rings again and it is a second sexy plumber. He says, "I'm here to flush your pipe." She answers with an okay and while he walks on upstairs she lets out a squeal and moan while letting down her hair. Then she wakes up to reality to find the two men in the supermarket. She flirts by giving sexy eyes to the one man in the deli slicing meat and the other in produce holding two melons. These two men are the same as in her dream. It may be coincidence, but the man in produce is standing beside cucumbers with a price sign behind him reading 69 cents.

The new Liquid-Plumr ad is offensive and completely inappropriate for television.

TAKE ACTION

Please send Liquid-Plumr (The Clorox Company) an email letter urging they pull this offensive commercial immediately and go back to their more responsible advertisement methods.

Email ABC and Disney <p>Please send an email letter strongly encouraging ABC and parent company Disney to drop all plans to air the anti-Christian program "Good Christian Belles."</p> OMM will Continue to Fight ABC on 'GCB'

Starting with the good news, after tens of thousands of OMM members signed a petition several months ago encouraging ABC to drop all plans of airing the program "Good Christian B-tches," the network has announced they will change the name to "Good Christian Belles" and "GCB" for short. This means profanity will not be used or insinuated in the title and be listed in television guides, listings and schedules. Your voice was heard!

The bad news is ABC is going forward with airing this Christian bashing program. The graphic they have chosen to illustrate the title of the new series based in Dallas, TX features a woman wearing a tight mini-skirt and a cowboy hat that has a diamond studded cross hanging off the hat, which gets thrown on the floor. Originally, ABC planned to air the new series last fall, but it disappeared from their schedule after we sent them tens of thousands of emails. Now the premiere is set to air this Sunday, March 4, 2012 at 10/9 Central and rated PG with the title "We Shall Receive."

This show is described as a wicked new drama that digs up sins from the characters' past and leads to scandal. They make sure no one is a saint, and the revenge and scheming involving church members is like no one has seen before on network television. ABC's promotion states the good girls have gone bad and get rowdy.

The trailer on their website includes: flirting at church, a woman in angel costume being thrown into a stained glass window of Jesus which shatters, a couple making out on an office desk where they intentionally show a framed picture of Jesus that they turn face down, a woman telling a mom "Hers are real. That is going to save you some money." while cupping the mom's teen daughter's breast. There are also tremendous amounts of gossip, all portraying Christians in a negative light. Previews include Christian music like "Forgiven, we know not what we do," during make-out scenes and some previews include the use of foul language as well.

Networks like ABC continue to mock Christianity and we will not stand for it. Some in the entertainment business have gone too far, for too long. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow it to continue without speaking up in protest.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter strongly encouraging ABC and parent company Disney to drop all plans to air the anti-Christian program "Good Christian Belles."

Tell them you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list and consider pulling all ads from the ABC network in protest of this Anti-Christian bigotry.

Then send this to everyone you know because there is strength in numbers!

'The Client List' is on our List <p>Please send an email letter strongly encouraging Lifetime and parent company A&amp;E Television Networks, LLC to drop all plans to air the highly sexual program "The Client List."<br /> <br /> Tell them you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list and consider pulling all ads from the Lifetime network in protest of this soft porn they call entertainment.</p> Email Lifetime

Lifetime's newest show "The Client List" is described as: a Texas housewife "Riley Parks" (Jennifer Love Hewitt), who, after being deserted by her husband, is left in serious financial straits and takes a job at a seemingly traditional day spa in a neighboring town. But when she realizes the business in part also provides other services, Riley must make the difficult decision whether or not to embrace an opportunity for her to resolve her financial hardships like some of the other women in the spa do. The series will follow Riley as she delicately balances a moral conflict between two starkly different lives -- one as a single mother in a conservative town struggling to provide for her family, or the other as a savvy and ambitious businesswoman working with a raucous, sexy and unpredictable group of women.

So in other words, a mom is employed at a massage parlor that gives happy endings. The trailer on their website shows Hewitt barely dressed when a man drops his towel and then states, "If you are on her list, you want to get off." There are plans for it to premiere in April unless OMM does something about it. If the promo for this program is too appalling to watch, then the show will be completely unsuitable for television.  

Networks like Lifetime continue to produce offensive programs, and we will not stand for it. Some in the entertainment business have gone too far, for too long. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow it to continue without speaking up in protest.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email letter strongly encouraging Lifetime and parent company A&E Television Networks, LLC to drop all plans to air the highly sexual program "The Client List."

Tell them you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list and consider pulling all ads from the Lifetime network in protest of this soft porn they call entertainment.

Macy's Continues to Offend Customers <p>Please send Macy's an email letter asking that they discontinue their "two groom" advertisement.</p> Email Macy's

Recently Macy's Department store mailed its newest catalogue out to many Americans. In the hopes of making sales, instead they offended many customers in the process. The back cover looks like just a regular advertisement for their wedding registry service, but there is one major difference.

When you take a closer look you see the cake topper of two men instead of the traditional man and woman. The ad also includes a license plate that reads "I do" and hearts scattered everywhere. Macy's must believe this is mainstream, but just because gay marriage is legal in a few states, this is inappropriate marketing and conservative customers will not support it.

TAKE ACTION

Please send Macy's an email letter below asking that they discontinue their "two groom" advertisement. Many of our supporters have already spoken up concerning Macy's policy on transgender men allowed into women's dressing rooms, and we will continue to speak out on traditional values. Some of our members have reported that they requested that their Macy's store credit card account be closed and shared the reason behind their decision. During our last campaign, we did not receive a reply from Macy's, but this does not mean that we will give up.

Mattel Considering Kardashian Barbie <p>Urge Mattel to reverse their decision to partner with the Kardashian brand by sending them an email now.</p> Worst Barbie Doll Idea Ever!

Kardashian sisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe have teamed up with Barbie to launch their own line of limited-edition dolls. "The dolls will reflect the girls' measurements and may even come in Kardashian-designed outfits," a source told New York Post.

Children should not be influenced by toys that idolize lifestyles that lack morals and values. These reality stars are not the example our young girls need. Beyond being materialistic and superficial, it is a fact that a sex tape led the sisters to fame and fortune. The 72-day marriage, multiple divorces, and multiple children (Kourtney pregnant with second child now) out of wedlock are completely inappropriate role models for children.

Scenes and topics of discussion on their reality show(s) include:

•    Nude yoga with a nude male yoga instructor
•    Modeling in Playboy Magazine which gives mother the idea to model nude in pictures as a gift to her husband
•    Discussion of sexual bondage
•    Watching porn on their computers
•    Suggestions of a three-some
•    Excess alcohol consumption which leads to violence
•    Arrest for DUI
•    Married Kim strips in front of male friend to see if he looks at her to determine if he is gay or not
•    Huge fights between siblings
•    High volume of foul language


This material is completely inappropriate for television and as the basis for a child's toy. Can you imagine if your daughter sees a Barbie commercial or a doll on the store shelves for a porn star? Or worse your child receives this toy as a gift at her birthday party!

TAKE ACTION

Urge Mattel to reverse their decision to partner with the Kardashian brand by sending them an email now. Let Mattel know that if they produce these limited-edition Barbie dolls then you will no longer buy Barbie or Mattel products and will gladly give your business to toy manufacturers that have the children's best interest in mind. Mattel should back out when they are slammed with emails from angry parents about their making a porn star doll for young girls.
