Gay dads Cooper Smith and Todd Koch said Tuesday that response from their JCPenney Father's Day ad has been overwhelmingly positive.

The Texas couple appeared with their children, Mason and Claire, on Dallas-Fort Worth station on Tuesday.

The group One Million Moms, which is closely associated with the Christian conservative group American Family Association (AFA), criticized JCPenney for including the real life couple and their children in a Father's Day ad.

“One Million Moms (OMM) is disturbed that JCPenney's (JCP) is continuing down the same path of promoting sin in their advertisements,” the group wrote on its blog.

The copy of the ad, titled First Pals, reads: “What makes Dad so cool? He's the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver – all rolled into one. Or two.”

Smith said the ad “just reflects our life. We care about the exact same things any parents care about. Are our kids safe, are they happy, are they getting to school on time and have they eaten lunch yet.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
