Ugh, we don't wanna boycott, 'Grey's Anatomy' is just getting good!

by Jeremy Hooper

    Focus on the Family is proudly announcing that their recent marketing campaign, which featured an advertising spot on the ABC television show "Supernanny," has attracted 10,000 new families to their "Focus on Your Child" program.

So what's the big deal? One could certainly argue that more parents should be directing more "focus" to their children, right?

Well, unfortunately FOF's idea of successful parenting includes raging homophobia, discrimination, bigotry, and all of those other words we use to describe groups who would be happier if the 'mos just didn't exist.

Under the Special Challenges section of the "Focus on Your Child" website, FOF lists homosexuality as an issue "that require[s] extra patience and prayer" and informs all who visit the site that "parents, families and churches have a responsibility to love the homosexual while clearly denouncing this lifestyle." Links are provided to all sorts of articles dedicated to "converting homos" such as "Helping Boys Become Men, and Girls Become Women," and "Helping People Step Out of Homosexuality."

And yes, ABC proudly sold precious May Sweeps ad time to this message of hate.

Aye dios mio!

We'll cool our jets for now, but if and when James Dobson shows up as the new "playboy of Wisteria Lane," you best believe we'll be takin' some action.
