  1. Aren’t there more pressing issues in society we should be concerned about?

  2. I’m sure Ryan is crying into his pillow every night.

  3. Excellent, free publicity, what more could they ask for?

    1. I had no idea about this upcoming series until today when I read this article. Defo going to be watching this when it is aired in the UK so thanks 1 Million Moms lol.

  4. They really need to change their name. Have they even hit 50,000 yet (One Million Moms, who have a mere 47,134 Facebook fans)?
    AND: Are they all Moms?
    Hard to take them seriously if they insist on such a shoddy ruse.

    Whatever number of moms there are – are they menopausal?

    These women are on the wrong side of history..These would have been the same exact people in the 1800’s felt so strongly about their “God given right” to buy and sell other human beings they protested. The same people that picketed in the south when blacks were allowed in schools. The same people that ridiculed women who tried to vote because women should know their place like it says in the bible. The same people that oppossed birth control pills and abortion and said anyone having one should be jailed. “Mom’s” Please go away and let people live their lives and you live yours. (Except of course it is just the lie and fabrication on the AFA and there are very few, if any, mom’s involved – just demented bigots!).

    1. Well said, Gary!

  5. Wow! and they don’t think all the crap that MTV shoves out might be responsible for what they say is the moral decay of America.

  6. I wonder if any of these “moms” have gay children?

    1. If they did, they’d probably have the poor kids ‘cured’ immediately.

  7. They should change the group name to “47,134 homophobic mom’s”

  8. I feel the constant urge to go up to these people, slap them and tell them to get a life!

  9. Ok, I guess they (One Million Mom’s) only have 1 channel…. Or the remote control is broken. No one if forcing anyone to watch anything. And, my other question is, why didn’t they do the same with Glee?

    Directed at One Million Moms. Be the parent, if you don’t want you child watching this program then turn the channel.

    Personally, I love ‘Glee’, it is a great sitcom, reminded me of ‘Fame’,

    Then we have what they are boycotting. Hmmm, looks like they won’t be using anything, or for that matter wearing anything. It is about EQUALITY!! And educating people about LGBT. Been here a long time, and we’re not going anywhere.

    And a shout out to ‘Ryan’ thanks keep up the great work!!1

    If (OMM) would just put 1/2 the effort into raising their own children instead of this B.S. ….

  10. And they just can’t turn it off?

  11. Their morality obviously is subjective, because in my book of morals, it is wrong to judge another person’s non-harmful lifestyle choices. Why do people care so much about how other people live their lives? If you don’t like the show, don’t watch. You are free to be intolerant and ignorant.

  12. “One Million Moms, a ministry of the anti-gay American Family Association”

    Because of this widely known fact I have to ask why the media is even reporting on these idiots. Who cares what they think.

  13. There, there now, dears, (one million moms) run along and do something else instead of irritating people with your unconstitutional rhetoric and hate. I really feel sorry for any children you may have.
    Thank you and well done to NBC for running the new sitcom.

    Well at least they seem to be watching the show and if they are so offended then simply don’t watch. Nobody’s pointing a gun. Oh just go ahead and watch you might learn a thing or two about what your children have to deal with even if you refuse to believe any of your children haven’t already been made gay by Lady Gaga. Go on watch and get brainwashed. You know just watching a gay makes you gay. Studies show that watching gays will eventually turn you gay. Just like reading holy scriptures makes you holy. Boy I’m sorry I’m rambling. I must be gay. Hey it’s okay to be gay. My boyfriends gay. And since my nephews and nieces see us together these last 14 years eventually they’ll turn gay too. It’s the gay agenda to make everyone gay. Yeah yeah let’s all be gay gay gay. I love that word. Thanks for bearing with me.

  15. Of they they will be a bunch of conservative Stepford Wives who are dreadful parents.

  16. Their comments do make me laugh! FOr example: “NBC is using public airwaves to continue to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and the sanctity of marriage in attempting to redefine marriage” How many of those who are complaining are on their second or even third marriage? And the only thing that is damaging to society is their hatred to LGBT people everywhere!

    Oh, hey, thanks, One Million Moms! I would never have heard of this new show, which sounds like something I might like to watch, without your hatemongering! Keep it up!

    HAHAHA
    “One Dozen Moms” have probably never touched their husbands’ … mmm… er… “thingies”….[That would be too 'dirty'.]

    Funny that they don’t deal with divorce or drug/alcohol use, with child abuse or elder abuse, with obesity and diabetes that result from poor lifestyle choices.

    re: the comments about where they would have stood on slavery issues in the USA, there is a great book/movie out: “The Help.” You can see the “One Dozen Moms” all together at a house party.

    good for the million moms . I do hope its at least good if not excellent . no better publicity then to have those nut cases against you ..
    cant wait to see it thankfully there is dvr …

  20. I’ll have to tune in. I hope it’s a huge hit just like “Glee”.

  21. Paddyswurds 23 Jul 2012, 5:58pm

    So the vile Don Wildmon Aka; One Million Moms, does not like a sitcom…I am sure the Network must be having lots of sleepless nights about that…. NOT. They are raking in the big bucks from the extra publicity rather.

    Reminds me of a few years ago when I lived in Boston, when shows would open in Boston first in the hope that they would get banned if they were a bit risque.The accolade “Banned in Boston” guaranteed a hit run on Broadway and other cities.

    There are no One Million Mom’s, thats only a name. Last I read they had 5,209 homophobic members.

  24. Can’t wait for this show to come to the UK !!!!! AHHHHHHHH so excited :P
