The puritanical pressure group known as One Million Moms has announced its own homosexual-free cartoon series.
Entertainment giant Disney has come under sustained fire from evangelicals in recent weeks after a surprise gay kiss in a Disney TV series, followed by news of a gay character in live-action remake Beauty and the Beast.
In response, the American Family Association and its puppet organisation One Million Moms launched a boycott of the brand – and this week 1MM confirmed their very own, very heterosexual TV show.
They wrote: “Let’s face it… entertainment media has a secular agenda they are forcing on society. This agenda is destructive to families and reaches even into the realm of children’s entertainment.
“For years, One Million Moms has fought this battle on the front lines – working hard to remove offensive programming and the negative influences that flood the airwaves. But that is not enough.”
Announcing their own cartoon series, they said: “1MM in association with American Family Studios is pleased to introduce a brand new family-friendly series ‘Ryan Defrates: Secret Agent’.”
The show, created by an evangelical Kentucky pastor who explains the show will “introduce spiritual truths in a fun way”.
A release states: “Ryan Defrates: Secret Agent is an animated action-adventure series about a young spy with a whole lot to learn! He’s arrogant and reckless and always insists on working alone.
“That is, until the day he’s paired with a very unlikely partner… his mom! Deb Defrates is not a spy. She knows more about cutting coupons then cutting down on crime, but her wisdom and kindness somehow always seem to save the day.
“Ryan Defrates: Secret Agent offers a story that will reflect God’s heart for the family by building it up rather than tearing it down. It focuses on the relationship of a mother and son and presents parents in their God-given role as sources of wisdom and love.”
The cartoon series will go straight-to-DVD, having failed to be picked up by any TV network.
It is the second animated venture announced by the AFA in a week as they ramp up the ‘culture war’.
We still have traumatic flashbacks from when we sat down and watched the first release from American Family Studios.
