One sponsor down, more to go

The Real O'Neals ABCA pro-family activist organization isn't letting up on its criticism of a controversial show airing on ABC.

OneMillionMoms is expressing disappointment that the sitcom The Real O'Neals continues to air on the Disney-owned network – and that the network is pretty much ignoring complaints about the sitcom's content.

"What OneMillionMoms is concerned about is the influence it's having on young minds and children as far as normalizing sin [and] making fun of faith," says 1MM director Monica Cole. "Every scene has either a sexual innuendo or it belittles the Christian faith. It mocks God."

The group is urging sponsors to pull their ads on the show and has registered one success. But according to Cole, the response from Johnson & Johnson – that 1MM needed to contact ABC – wasn't a good enough response because that's already been tried.

Cole, Monica"OneMillionMoms, along with some other pro-family and conservative organizations, did contact the network last spring," she explains. "We contacted ABC giving them an opportunity to cancel the program. [But] Johnson & Johnson needs to hear from more mothers because of the fact that the network doesn't care. It's falling on deaf ears."

OneMillionMoms did get a positive response from TaxSlayer.com last week. The company informed 1MM that they were immediately pulling their sponsorship of the The Real O'Neals.
