Singer Adam Lambert on Sunday called
the anti-gay group One Million Moms “hateful bigots.”
One Million Moms, which has close ties
to the Christian conservative group American Family Association
(AFA), is the organization which made national headlines earlier this
year when it called on JCPenney to fire comedian Ellen DeGeneres as
the department store's spokesperson because she's openly gay.
More recently, the group told
retailer GAP to “quit pushing a deviant and unhealthy
lifestyle” after the company erected a billboard in Los Angeles
which features two men hugging each other.
Million Moms also attacked comic book Astonishing X-Men
for marrying a gay mutant hero and DC Comics' decision to have the
Green Lantern come out gay.
“This is ridiculous! Why do adult
gay men need comic superheroes as role models? They don't but do
want to indoctrinate impressionable young minds by placing these gay
characters on pedestals in a positive light. These companies are
brainwashing them into thinking that a gay lifestyle choice is normal
and desirable. As Christians, we know that homosexuality is a sin
This week, the group once again
criticized JCPenney for including two
gay dads in a Father's Day ad.
“Fuck 'One Million Moms,'” Lambert
tweeted to his nearly 1.5 million followers. “Hateful bigots.”
