GLEE is Not Backing Down So Neither Will OMM




This is an exerpt from an email I received from One Million Moms on March 23, 2011

The popular teen television program "GLEE" is far from family-friendly entertainment.

Ryan Murphy, the creator of "Nip/Tuck," an open homosexual and the producer of "GLEE," is pushing political correctness and his lifestyle choice on teens. "GLEE" is not as graphic as "Nip/Tuck," but just as offensive and extremely inappropriate for their target audience of teenagers.

The music chosen for this show is extremely inappropriate especially for school activities. The choreographed routines are obscene and contain vulgar dancing which they perform for a regional competition. Foul language is used in every episode.

The writers mock Christianity with a song named "Jesus is a Friend of Mine" sung by competitors at regionals. The scene presented them as being cheesy, uncool and prudish.

One of the judges is a liberal nun, and a former exotic dancer. She became a nun because she needed a place to live. Another judge is Kathy Griffin, playing the part of Sarah Palin as a homeschooling mom and tea party candidate. Griffin portrays Palin in a negative light. They also mock Palin and her conservative beliefs by giving her lines to ask the students if they are born in the U.S. and to say homosexual students cannot win the competition because it sends a message to students that gay is okay. A third judge chimes in that two men can get married and raise a family. Then, the announcer for the winner of regionals announces that her husband is verbally abusive, and she has been drinking since noon.

Similar to most teen shows today, all the characters can talk about is sex. There are homosexual and lesbian couples on the show. These teens share passionate kisses on the mouth several times. The two homosexual boys sing a duet together, and the lesbians can only be friends since one of the girls has a boyfriend too.

In a previous episode, the substitute health teacher, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, takes it upon herself to teach the students sex education with visual and vulgar displays. She also joins the singing and dancing theme with highly sexual moves imitating a stripper. She says that abstinence is not reality.

TAKE ACTION

If you are outraged by this series send Burger King, Toyota, Lexus and Cellular South an email asking them to pull their support from "GLEE" and no longer sponsor this program through advertising. They have all sponsored the last three episodes of this show. Your email will also be sent to FOX Network.

  1. LOL! Well personally, I think this lady is overreacting. First of all, I don't think the target audience is JUST teenagers. Most teenagers would be doing homework or getting ready for bed at 8pm on a Tuesday night. Half the things she said are being twisted. Most of the instances can be explained, and even if some aren't everyone has an opinion. If you're that offended, don't watch it.

  2. I will now send letters of support to Burger King, Toyota, Lexus and Cellular South for their support of this great program. Because this show is tackling teen homosexuality in a positive way, and there are many teenagers across the country who NEED that portrayal as it doesn't exist anywhere else. It's very sad that the recent "Sex Ed" episode will likely be the only sexual education most young people will get outside of their peers and the internet... If she doesn't like the "message" it is promoting, my suggestion would be not to let her children watch it and to have in depth discussions about it and why it doesn't agree with her values with them - and let other people worry about their own children!

    As a former teacher, I always laugh at people who claim the teenage characters in this show are shown as too sexual. Trust me, I heard things in the classroom (or worse, the hallways) that would have shocked most parents.

    Vulgar dancing? Obviously she hasn't been to any national cheerleading competitions recently ;P

  3. Apparently you don't understand what teens are going through these days. Plus, I would never label Glee a family show. It's a free country, no one is forced to watch Glee.

    Maybe, if you don't agree with the show, you should make an anti-Glee show about kids who sing g-rated songs and ones battling with their own sexuality are kicked out of school or told to 'pray the gay away'. Where they are only taught abstinence and when that doesn't work, they are abandoned or forced to marry. Then see how many people watch your show.

  4. We don't actually watch TV in our house at all because I was feeling that everything was overtly sexual and unnecessary.

    Unfortunately, from what I have seen and heard around teens, GLEE is a very real example of what it is like at high school, apart from the breaking into song. (I have seen a few bits and pieces here, from the first season I think it may have been).

    I think it is up to us to decided what is watched in our homes. If shows are not popular they get canceled.

    I admire you for being so courageous taking a stand for something you believe in. Don't let the negative comments get you down. You are doing what is right for you and your family. :)

  5. Thanks for making me aware of what I can do and the site One Million Moms.

    I am appalled by what people seem to think is appropriate to film and shows like this are a disgrace.

    It is up to us to raise our children the best we can, but it seems that hardly anyone else in the world has the same views.

    It would be so nice to step back in time when people had values.
