Children’s TV show Clifford the Big Red Dog has introduced a character with same-sex parents and Evangelicals are not happy.
The series – which has been rebooted this year – is based on the book series about a 25 feet (7.5 m) tall red dog named Clifford.
And in a recent rebooted series – which began airing this month – has introduced a character called Samantha who has two mums.
But the homophobic group, One Million Moms, have once again proved their homophobic and bigoted stance after hitting back at introducing LGBTQ characters to a show about a 25 FOOT TALL RED DOG!
In an exposed email, the hate group leader Monica Cole called out broadcasting channel PBS for having the nerve to show that families can come in all shapes and sizes.
She wrote: “The same-sex couple was first introduced in a mid-February episode titled ‘The Big Red Tomato/Dogbot’.
“There was no disclaimer at the beginning of the episode where their relationship is explained.”
She also hit back as Sesame Street who are set to feature Pose star Billy Porter in an upcoming episode.
Cole continued: ”And if a same-sex wedding and a same-sex relationship in children’s programming weren’t enough, PBS recently announced that Sesame Street will feature a drag queen activist wearing a gender-bender tuxedo gown in one of its episodes this year.
“Discussion of such controversial topics and lifestyle choices should be left up to parents.
“PBS KIDS should not introduce the LGBTQ lifestyle to young children.
“PBS KIDS should stick to entertaining and providing family friendly programming, instead of pushing an agenda.
“According to the PBS Foundation, ‘PBS stations reach more children, and more caretakers of young children, than any of the children’s TV networks’.
“For example, ‘18 million kids watched PBS last year’.
“Many families have already discovered that PBS KIDS, largely supported by federal funds, is anything but family friendly.
“However, 1MM is warning anyone who continues to watch the channel.”
