M is for the ...?

One Million Moms, a group affiliated with the American Family Association, describes itself as "a network of Christian moms who have joined together to stand up for our children and families."

They are urging customers of JC Penney to vote with their wallets in opposition to the use of Ellen DeGeneres as a JCP spokesperson.

Yet One Million Moms can ignore the beating to death of a seven year old boy for his failure to read the Bible and do his homework.

Hmm… being gay and living a kind and good life is worse than being Christian and killing your child because he lied about reading the Bible?

If my mission was to stand up for children and families I could find better places to spend my time and energy than attacking JC Penney’s use of Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson.

Sadly there is a long list of Christian fundamentalists who beat their children to death in the name of God and there is the Catholic Church who continues to cover up child abuse by their priests… Hmm… yes… standing up for our children and families is a daunting task and noble goal; one just needs to make sure to aim our focus in the right direction. 


  1. They should be honest and change their name to One Million Haters. Moms indeed. They show no caring at all. It's horrifying that, because of their organization's name, news stories say "Moms" object to (whatever). It's just a slick cover. Why not say "anti-gay group objects to..."? That would be much clearer. Another hit for our terrible media. It's like they exist to spread lies. Walter Cronkite, where are you? Oh, right. Never mind.

  2. Excellent point, Keith, thank you as always for your comments.
