If you wanna boycott a show created by Ryan Murphy, the sanctimonious mind behind Nip/Tuck and Glee, all the power to you — at least make it for a good reason, like the fact that his characters are achingly inconsistent and if you don’t agree with him, you hate the arts and puppies and babies and children trying to learn. What’s a bad reason to boycott a Ryan Murphy show? Because it features gay characters.
One Million Moms, the loneliest and bitterest of organizations, last heard whining about an Oreo, are now protesting Murphy’s new show, NBC’s The New Normal, about a gay male couple having a child via surrogate.
NBC is using public airwaves to continue to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and the sanctity of marriage in attempting to redefine marriage. These things are harmful to our society, and this program is damaging to our culture.
Millions of Americans strongly believe that marriage should be between one man and one woman. NBC’s “The New Normal” is attempting to desensitize America and our children. It is the opposite of how families are designed and created. You cannot recreate the biological wheel. (Via)
Having to watch Puck warble his way through “School’s Out” on Glee is worse than anything The New Normal could throw our away. In fact, Normal‘s premise is only the 34,372th most offensive thing Murphy has ever done, somewhere between casting Rosie O’Donnell on Nip/Tuck and once saying, “You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music.” That’s a reason to boycott Ryan Murphy.
