'Lucifer' Continues to be Portrayed as a Likable Guy

'Lucifer' Continues to be Portrayed as a Likable Guy

FOX's new drama "Lucifer" is spiritually dangerous. The new program "Lucifer" glorifies Satan as a caring, likable person in human flesh. The character Lucifer Morningstar makes being the devil look cool and irresistible to women. "Lucifer" airs on Monday evenings at 9:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. CT with a 14-DLSV rating.

The series focuses on Lucifer portrayed as a good guy "who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell." He resigns his throne, abandons his kingdom, and retires to Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals.

At the same time, God's emissary, the angel Amenadiel, has been sent to Los Angeles to convince Lucifer to return to the underworld. Lucifer questions Amenadiel, "Do you think I'm the devil because I'm inherently evil or just because dear old Dad decided I was?" The question is meant to make people rethink assumptions about good and evil, including about God and Satan.

The program included graphic acts of violence, a nightclub featuring scantily-clad women, and a demon. The message of the show is clear. Lucifer is just misunderstood. He doesn't want to be a bad guy, it's God who is forcing him to play that role.

As a parent and member of OneMillionMoms.com, I strongly encourage your company to drop all plans of financially supporting FOX's new drama "Lucifer" that airs on Monday evenings at 9:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. CT with a 14-DLSV rating.

The program mischaracterizes Satan and is spiritually dangerous. While your company is a household name, I do not agree with your financial backing of this program.

I certainly hope your company's financial support of this type of television programming through advertising is simply an oversight.

As a consumer, I am asking you to please pull your ad immediately. My decision to support your company depends on it.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding my concern.
