Warnings are going out about a raunchy new "comedy" on TBS in which children are cast – and a recent episode of AMC's "Preacher" that's being described as blasphemous.
OneMillionMoms is calling attention to a new comedy on the cable network TBS called "The Guest Book." 1MM director Monica Cole takes issue with the fact that child actors are cast in the sitcom, which is rated MA-LS ("Mature Audience only" – "crude indecent Language" – "explicit Sexual activity").
"These children are the victims of what I would call a form of child abuse," she tells OneNewsNow, "because they are participating in a mature-rated program. But also for any children who may accidently stumble across the show ... it would draw their attention [because it has children cast in it]."
Cole also points out that the sitcom includes taking Christ's name in vain and heavy drug use. She laments that TBS is bundled into most family's cable package.
"As cable subscribers we are helping pay for these mature-rated programs that have more sexual content and encounters or even innuendos then any conservative family would want to help support," she states.
OneMillionMoms urges parents to contact advertisers on the show, asking them to pull their sponsorship.
A new low on AMC series
The controversial AMC drama "Preacher" (TV-MA) is in its second season – and while Cole says the program has always been sacrilegious, she adds that it recently "hit an all-time low."
"They have [gone] extremely too far in the latest episode with having [the character of] Jesus with a woman, sinning in sensual scenes," she describes, adding that it portrays "any and everything imaginable."
Cole continues: "And even though there are silhouettes at times [in the scenes], the dialogue described gives plenty of details of what is going on during this particular scene that lasts at least five minutes."
The 1MM director is calling on Christians to take a stand. "[We are] asking parents and supporters and Christians to sign a petition that we have on our website ... asking that [the network] issue an apology for not only ridiculing Christianity and people of faith, but for mocking Jesus Christ."
Cole knows the blasphemous episode was going directly after Christians because she explains that "never in a million years" would AMC air a show that defamed Islam's prophet, Mohammad, in a similar fashion.
