Anti-gay Hate Group American Family Association Launches 'One Million Dads'

Dads

If you're unfamiliar with One Million Moms, it's a conservative watchdog group ostensibly formed for the purpose of protecting impressionable children from inappropriate themes, messages, and imagery in mass media. In practice, it's a collection of wingnut anti-gay scolds who make Helen Lovejoy look positively bacchanalian by comparison, which is not so surprising given that they're a project of the increasingly-misnamed American Family Association. We cover them from time to time on Towleroad, but Joe Jervis at Joe.My.God. practically has binders full of these women's antics.

It's no surprise, then, that Joe discovered that the AFA is filling out their pearl-clutching family with the foundation of One Million Dads. It seems like OMD would be a companion organization for OMM, but the mission page suggests a more..."patriarchal" intent:

The mission of One Million Dads, is the mission of Ezekiel 37.  The men of the church have long been asleep.  We have relinquished our God given position of leadership.  Not to subjugate our families, but to lead them with the loving hand of Christ.  Our hope is to wake up the fearsome wonder that is the mighty man of God and restore him to his role as leader, teacher, counselor, and then thereby change the world we live in for the better.  

That reads an awful lot like, "We've been letting the womenfolk run things long enough; it's time for the men to step up and take charge." For the moment the site seems to contain mostly personal accounts of introspection and how to live a conservative Christian life, but we can be sure that we'll be hearing more from them as time goes on. For now, enjoy their post that compares legal elective abortions to the Holocaust.

As it currently stands, One Million Moms has a little over 70,000 likes on Facebook. One Million Dads has less than 500.


Wingnut Bryan Fischer: 'Ordinary Americans' Fed Up With LGBT Advertising - VIDEO

Bryan fischer

Bryan Fischer has warned that advertisers face a backlash from "ordinary Americans" because of ads aimed at the LGBT community.

In recent months there has been a marked increase in LGBT-focused advertising.

A recent spot for Chevrolet which includes both same-sex and single parent families with the voice-over "while what it means to be family hasn't changed, what a family looks like has,” are representative of this shift towards LGBT-friendly advertising.

Speaking to Press Telegram, Bob Witeck, president of strategic communications firm Witeck Communications said:

“What we’re witnessing is the idea that you don’t have to isolate gay ads and messaging to markets only intended for gay people. Families all look different from the traditional family Americans grew up with 50 years ago. They are far more multiracial, more single parents, more gay couples raising kids. If you start leaving them out, you’re not only erasing gay people, but you’re also erasing people who are part of people’s family.”

However, Fischer, Director of Issues Analysis for fundamentalist Christian non-profit group The American Family Association, which maintains OneMillionMoms.com, argued:

“I think eventually this LGBT advertising push is gonna trigger a blowback from ordinary Americans. I think that ordinary Americans are getting fed up with having the homosexual agenda shoved down their throats when they’re watching TV with their families. What American families are gonna begin to react to is that they are recognizing that this is no longer about advertising a product. This is about propaganda for a sexually deviant lifestyle.”

‘Good Luck Charlie’ Features Disney Channel’s First Gay Couple - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-01-27 at 10.49.55 AM

You probably missed it, but the Disney Channel passed a historic milestone last night with the introduction of the first openly gay characters to ever appear on the channel. The characters, a lesbian couple, were a part of the newest episode of Good Luck Charlie, which is currently on its last season.

TV Guide reports on the episode’s synopsis:

Good luck charlieIn 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 kid arrives, the Duncans learn that Charlie's pal has two moms. That's fine, but the potential new friendship is put to the test as one mom chats with Amy, and the other is stuck listening to Bob's dull stories.

Check out a video of the characters' nonchalant introduction, AFTER THE JUMP...

Back in June, Disney Channel announced its plan to feature the network’s first gay characters, saying:

"This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors. 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.

Unsurprisingly, American Family Association’s One Million Moms threw a fit about the company’s plans to “corrupt the children’s network with LGBT content.” The group launched an email campaign last year and warned that 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.” 

One can only hope so!

Sadly, because the episode will be a part of Good Luck Charlie's final season, the characters are only expected to appear in this one episode. Reruns of the episode are expected however.

One Million Moms Enraged Over 'Kinky Boots' Macy's Parade Performance: VIDEO

Kinky

American Family Association sub-project One Million Moms sent out an action alert to its members today, urging them to voice their disapproval over the fact that Tony Award-winning musical Kinky Boots was allowed to perform in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Right Wing Watch reports.

The group's action alert reads:

As a parent and a member of OneMillionMoms.com, I am greatly disappointed in your company's choice to include the "Raise You Up" drag performance during your Thanksgiving Day Parade with millions of children present and watching from home. It is inappropriate to highlight cross-dressing in a sexually charged performance during a traditional family activity. Your blatant agenda and in-your-face message was quite offensive, and Macy's cannot be trusted. Shame on Macy's for promoting this behavior.

It is clear that Macy's does not have my children's best interest in mind. I can no longer trust Macy's Dept. Store. Your company needs to know that trust must be earned and once trust is lost it is difficult to get back.

Your decision was irresponsible, especially at an event when families are watching together. Nothing about this particular performance was family-friendly. The ENTIRE parade should be kid-friendly; not 95% of it! Your company can do better than this.

As Matt Lauer noted in his introduction of the musical, it's about learning to celebrate the differences in each other.

One Million Moms Can't Handle the Hot Stud Ball-Ringing in the Kmart 'Jingle Bells' Ad

Kmart

Kmart has incurred the wrath of One Million Moms with its sexy ad in which six studs play 'Jingle Bells' with their balls.

Writes the group:

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.

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.

One Million Moms has called on its followers to attack Kmart on Facebook and Twitter @kmart, so if you'd like to do the opposite, feel free.
