ABC Continues to Offend
ABC continues to produce inappropriate programs, and plans to add to that growing list. We have already contacted sister network ABC Family concerning the new show "The Fosters," and now we need to let ABC know of our disapproval of their newest program "Mistresses." The title says it all. Like a revamped "Desperate Housewives," four friends get themselves tangled in a web of lies and hurt the ones they love. "Mistresses" series premiere is scheduled for Monday, June 3, at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 CT.
The tagline for the program is: "Attraction. Passion. Deception. I can't help it." Advertisements mention "Endless possibilities," "Thirteen weeks of seduction" and "Who have you been doing?" One character even gets involved with another woman. A show full of adultery, cheating and lies is the last influence our society needs. Even though the program airs a little later in the evening, it is not late enough since the bedroom scenes are completely soft p*rn. (An asterisk is used to ensure our emails get through to those who have signed up to receive our alerts. Otherwise referencing specific words would cause our emails to be blocked by some internet filters.)
One Million Moms will be as persistent as we were with ABC's "Good Christian Belles" in asking sponsors to pull their financial support. We had proof this works when "GCB" was canceled after only one season.
Hollywood is continuing to push casual s*x as 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, we are accepting it and are guilty of sin also. One Million Moms is determined to clean up broadcast airwaves.
Please send your email to oppose the new show "Mistresses" and strongly encourage ABC to drop all plans to air this program.
Let ABC know you will not be watching "Mistresses" and that your family plans to avoid the network all together so there will be no chance of viewing a commercial that promotes this vulgar program earlier in the evening.
Let them also know you are prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list.
