American Family Association’s OneMillionMoms.com Celebrates Dozens of Successes Cleaning Up the Media
Moms Fed Up with Filth That Entertainment Media Throws at Kids, and 1MM is Doing Something About It!
TUPELO, Miss.—This Mother’s Day, One Million Moms (1MM, www.OneMillionMoms.com) has a lot to celebrate.
A division of the American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net), One Million Moms calls out companies that are contributing to the demise of American entertainment by advertising on programs that are disrespectful, demoralizing and destructive to families.
“Moms are fed up with the filth that many segments of our society, especially the entertainment media, are throwing at our children,” said One Million Moms Director Monica Cole. “As mothers, we’re tired of all the negative influences our kids are forced to contend with. One Million Moms gives parents an avenue to have some impact with the decision-makers and let them know we are upset with the messages they are sending our children and the values—or lack thereof—they are pushing.”
One of the goals of One Million Moms is to stop the exploitation of children, especially by television, music and movies that spew immorality, violence, vulgarity and profanity.
“Entertainment media has a secular agenda they are forcing on society,” Cole said. “This agenda is destructive to families and reaches even into the realm of children’s entertainment. For years, One Million Moms has fought this battle on the front lines—working hard to remove offensive programming and the negative influences that flood the airwaves.”
Added AFA President Tim Wildmon, “AFA’s One Million Moms division has been a tireless force in cleaning up American entertainment. For the past 40 years, AFA has worked to ensure that American families and children aren’t subjected to a liberal, violent, graphic or even an LGBT-driven agenda. This Mother’s Day, we thank One Million Moms and all the moms behind the initiative who have taken action to make a difference in the entertainment choices for their children.”
Some of the issues One Million Moms has recently brought to the attention of parents include:
- Urge Yum! Brands to pull sponsorship from “The Mick”
- Dove ad features dad pretending to be mom
- Tell Clorox to clean up TV
- Disney downplays “Beauty and the Beast” LGBT angle after backlash
- Taco Bell’s tasteless advertising
And recent One Million Moms successes include:
- “Dating Naked” has been cancelled!
- My Pillow pulls advertising from “The Mick”
- “Impastor” has been cancelled!
- Zales going neutral in culture war
- Rue 21 has responded to our concerns
One Million Moms is also encouraging families to get in on the “secret” of AFA’s first-ever animated series, “Ryan Defrates: Secret Agent,” a project that aims to affirm, defend and restore Christian values in the culture.
The first three episodes of “Ryan Defrates: Secret Agent” are now available at the AFA Store, where visitors can also view a short promotional video and read an interview with “Ryan Defrates” co-creators, brother-and-sister team Kendra White and Jeremy White, in the AFA Journal.
