Sponsors of 'Mistresses'


"Mistresses" is a new summer show that premiered on ABC two evenings ago, and obviously the name says it all. I suppose the name "Sinful Lifestyles" didn't sound as attractive. Like a revamped "Desperate Housewives," four friends get themselves tangled in a web of lies and hurt the ones they love. "Mistresses" airs on Monday evenings 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.

The premier episode wasted no time in letting viewers know what this show is about.  The episode began with a graphic sex scene, ended with another pornographic display, and mixed in a few more explicit scenes throughout the rest of the show. "Mistresses" centers around a group of four women who have no regrets and feel no remorse about committing adultery with someone else's husband - or cheating on their own.

Infidelity is the new trend ABC is selling as normal. It has been declared soft core p*rn not only by One Million Moms, but by 9 out of 10 reviews you find on it. The trailer for the program on ABC's website has snippets of intense s*xual scenes, but the premiere consisted of so much skin and erotic s*xual content that it probably made up half of the content during the one hour program.                                                                                                         

Hollywood is continuing to push casual s*x some with multiple partners as acceptable when Scripture states clearly it is a sin. As Christians, the Bible also says 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 an email letter to the sponsors of this week's "Mistresses." This week's national sponsors were: Olive Garden, Lexus, Chili's, Geico, Applebee's, Jergens and Taco Bell (YUM Brands).

Urge advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list in protest of pushing sin directly into America's living rooms.
