“The Fosters,” a new TV show from Jennifer Lopez, is being condemned by conservative watchdog group One Million Moms because it features a lesbian couple raising children.

Even though the upcoming ABC Family project from Lopez’s production company does not have a cast or even a completed pilot, One Million Moms has posted a call to arms on its website, decrying the “anti-family” series and asking supporters to “stop [it] dead in [its] tracks.”

FULL STATEMENT BELOW

Earlier this year, the group targeted JC Penney for using openly gay Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson, leading to an ill-fated boycott that did not change Penney’s association with DeGeneres.

In anticipation of “The Fosters,” One Million Moms issued the following statement:

“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.”

One Million Moms then asks supporters to “take action” by writing to ABC Family to encourage the network to “drop all their plans to air the program” and urging advertisers to pull commercials from the network in protest.

What do you think about the proposed protest?
