Evangelical Christians are the latest to join a growing group calling for the boycott of a show about an anti-Christian hate peddler.
The group that is angered about the show “The Real O’Neals,” based around the life of Christian-hater and gay activist Dan Savage that is scheduled to debut on ABC this fall, includes the Media Research Center, the Family Research Council, and the American Family Association according to Newsbusters.
Following a letter sent by the Media Research Center and the Family Research Council to Ben Sherwood,president of Disney-ABC Television Group, asking him to cancel the show, more than 9,000 viewers have called ABC and more than 20,000 have sent postcards to the company’s board of directors asking for the same thing.
STATEMENTS FROM EVANGELICAL LEADERS
“What does an X-rated gay sex columnist have in common with Walt Disney? Nothing. And that’s exactly the problem. Most Americans have probably never heard of Dan Savage, but unfortunately, that’s all about to change this fall. Despite massive outcry — thousands of phone calls, emails, and petition signers — Disney’s ABC is taking its LGBT activism to new lows with plans to bring the controversial Christian-basher to life in a sitcom called The Real O’Neals.
“Savage, whose ‘anti-bullying’ videos are a favorite of the President’s and Hollywood, has turned out to be the biggest bully of all — using his platform as an opportunity to ridicule students and curse faith. Lately, though, the militant atheist has taken a break from hurling sexual threats at Republicans to focus on this new fall sitcom, which producers say, ‘will follow the younger years of Savage’s life and the experiences of his family following his decision to come out of the closet.’”
–Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council
“Gay activist Dan Savage embodies the mainstream ‘gay rights’ movement, decrying “discrimination” while spewing some of the most hateful and obscene venom. Hollywood likes to pretend it battles against “hate” when, in reality, it regularly churns out race-baiting, anti-Christian, anti-conservative, anti-Life propaganda every day. Why do Christians continue to financially support a media empire like ABC/Disney that flaunts its disdain for our values and beliefs?”
— Ryan Bomberger, Chief Creative Officer, The Radiance Foundation
“The anti-Christian rhetoric that Dan Savage espouses is not suitable for mainstream America. Giving him such a platform is tantamount to poison for our youth to view. I would never allow my children to watch a network that produces this kind of hateful ‘entertainment’ and I will insist that all Christians boycott ABC/Disney should they continue to pursue this immoral agenda.”
— Christopher Doyle, Equality And Justice For All and Co-Founder of Voice of the Voiceless
Does anyone think a show about the life of Pamela Geller would’ve been picked up by any network?
