LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Ultra conservative group One Million Moms is calling for a boycott of Glee creator Ryan Murphy's new show.
Murphy's show The New Normal revolves around two homosexual men who want to start a family, and the conservative group has blasted the creator for being 'openly gay.'
"These days, families come in all forms - single dads, double moms, sperm donors, egg donors, one-night-stand donors... It's 2012 and almost anything goes," say the website for the upcoming NBC show.
One Million Moms says it will stop at nothing to make sure the TV series does not air on television. "OMM is prepared to contact any and all sponsors of this program if it is aired," they warned in a letter posted today.
This isn't the first time the group has taken aim against homosexuality in the media. They famously went after JC Penny for hiring Ellen Degeneres as their spokesperson.
"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," OMM added.
The season premiere of The New Normal is scheduled for Tuesday, September 11.
