Speaking out against Immorality
There’s at least one voice in America speaking out against immoral and negative influences bombarding our society. It belongs to OneMillionMoms.com (OMM). The original organization was founded around 2008 by several women fed up with government, businesses and decision makers who allow the media and others to force immorality, violence and vulgarity down the throats of decent moral citizens. However, membership is open to all sharing like views.
Monica Cole, spokesperson for the group, explains their main goal is to put an end to the exploitation and moral decay of our nation’s children, especially by the entertainment media. Cole says they are searching for one million moms willing to join the fight to allow our children a chance to grow up in a moral society. That sounds like a noble cause since our children are our future.
OMM views are shared by American Family Association, one of the largest and most effective pro-family organizations in the country, who recently hosted Cole on their show Focal Point. The topic focused on why America should be upset by an NBC comedy called The New Normal that features a gay couple who hire a surrogate mother. Cole said the show attacks Christian values, conservative values and the traditional family.
The organization is against those who exploit children for financial gain. Some detractors say their methods of protest, consisting of petitions, boycotts and targeted letter writing campaigns and emails, amount to nothing less than a form of economic terrorism. To boycott is not using or buying a product or service in order to show support for a cause.
Apparently, some believe it is. Anyone doing a search for OMM online will undoubtedly come across more than a few sites denouncing the organization. Be forewarned as some may be viewed as extremely offensive. For example, one initiated by a man identifying himself as Mad Mike and under the guise of a spoof, pokes fun at the OMM. However, his site also prominently features a picture of Jesus Christ giving a one fingered salute.
Here's how the OMM works. It’s free to join and doesn’t require a large investment of time. They contact their members by e-mail, with information about a particular issue and supply a link to where action can be taken. Members are encouraged to forward the link to other likeminded individuals.
When people watch a TV program, they should reasonably expect the content to be free of indecent or profane language. When it isn’t they can file a complaint against the station with the FCC. In turn, the FCC will begin a formal investigation to determine if the station is subject to fines or license termination. The FCC encourages consumers to first try resolving the problem with the company whose products, services or billing are at issue. However, if that does not succeed, a complaint may be filed online with the commission at: http://www.fcc.gov/topic/complaints
