AN openly-gay TV producer and Glee have been laid out over the knee and given an old-fashioned spanking by American non-profit family group One Million Mums.
OMM, who have in the past spoken out against companies like JC Penny for using lesbian talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in their ads have criticised Glee for their 2013 Christmas special who “should not and will not get a free pass to make a joke of Christmas”.
In an email to the shows network advertisers, OMM wrote:
“Other religions do not tolerate this behaviour and as Christians we will not either. Why any producer or network feels mocking a sacred and religious holiday where Christians celebrate the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ is acceptable is beyond me. GLEE should not and will not get a free pass to make a joke of Christmas. This is not the first time the show has aired blasphemous content in their program. Glee producer Ryan Murphy is used to pushing the moral boundaries on his show, but last week’s episode went too far. The mockery of the Christmas story was blasphemous and an abomination.”
The show featured transgender student Unique portraying the Virgin Mary in their high school’s nativity scene and acts out giving birth to the baby Jesus.
The doll representing Jesus wore a sequin diaper and was thrown from singer to singer while they sang Love Child, Never Meant to Be. Baby Jesus is tossed around like a rag doll and in another scene, a bisexual Sexy Santa, gets two female characters and the show’s gay male character drunk before robbing them blind – after making out with and tying the male character up in bed. These same females in a previous scene are elves at the local mall while wearing skimpy elf costumes.
Do you think this is too naughty for Christmas, or a little bit nice?
