An online dating site created specifically for single Christians has pulled its sponsorship of a controversial TV program.  

ChristianMingle.com has announced it will no longer advertise on the show "Impastor" which is airing on TV Land. 

That decision comes after OneMillionMoms.com, a division of the American Family Association, launched a campaign urging the dating site to withdraw their financial support.

OMM director Monica Cole says she was pleased with Christian Mingle's swift response.

Cole, Monica"It was an extremely quick turn-around time, a prompt response from ChristianMingle.com," she tells OneNewsNow. "And we thank them on behalf of all the OneMillionMom members for their cooperation and their concern on this serious matter."

What ChristianMingle.com decided to pull its money from was a sacrilegious show in which a pot-smoking slacker, on the run from a loan shark, steals a man's identity and poses as the new homosexual pastor in a small town.

Christian Mingle didn't pull its commercial from the show – it pulled away from TV Land to reconsider advertising on the cable network. 

OMM is now asking the public to lobby restaurant chain IHOP to drop its advertising from "Impastor." 


American Family Association is the parent organization of American Family News, which includes OneNewsNow.
