Last week we brought you news about the group One Million Moms and their campaign to get The New Normal off the air. Now, the show’s openly gay co-creators Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler plan on fighting back.

For their upcoming episode, where the plot revolves around Shania (Goldie’s primary school daughter) having a pretend wedding to another classmate, NBC has released a clip where her strict and deeply conservative great grandmother, Jane (played by Ellen Barkin), enlists the help of “future One Million Moms” to help her stop the wedding.

One Million Moms accused the show of “subjecting families to the decay of morals and values and the sanctity of marriage in attempting to redefine marriage,” and it’s clear that the creators have embraced these words and put them right back into Jane’s mouth, and nearly verbatim too. “I’m sure you’ve heard your parents speak to you about the sanctity of marriage?”

Through the funny exchanges between Jane and the kids, as well as their side interviews (“My uncle was gay, but we cured him. Now he’s a youth pastor.”), Ryan Murphy and Co. are able to show their audiences just how ridiculous the group is, and also send the message that they don’t feel threatened by One Million Moms. What do you think, was it wise to respond to the group or should they have ignored it?

    Haha, yes. This is awesome.

    Good for them. I’m really tired of One Million Moms trying to attack almost every show I love. Just because you don’t believe in a marriage between two gay men doesn’t mean it is wrong. If you don’t like the show, don’t watch it.

    It can’t be a response considering how long ago this must have been film. Television is scripted/filmed about 5 episodes ahead of air date. For example, Revolution aired episode 4 yesterday and they just finished filming episode 10.

      They can add scenes up to the day before. Remember when Glee added that RIP Whitney Houston title credit at the end of that episode. The episode aired 2-3 days after she died. They can easily add scenes last minute, they just prefer not to.

    Sigh, One Million Moms…
    Well it’s good that Ryan Murphy and Co. “don’t feel threatened by One Million Moms”, but this ‘response’/'take that’ seems unnecessary.
    On the other hand, why don’t we scrutinize the mediocre writing of the show?

    One Million Moms still shows up in Google’s search results…this is a problem, as I distinctly remember a Google Valentine’s Day Doodle containing images of gay couples. One Million Moms also uses Youtube, which is, of course, owned by Google.
    Please, everyone email One Million Moms so they stop endorsing this company supporting moral decay! All they need to do is take their website out of Google’s directory and remove all of their own Youtube videos.
    …Everybody wins. :D
