Another Attack on the Family: Amped Up and Animated

Please forgive me for not being consistent on my blog recently. We have been in an extremely wonderful but demanding missions conference for the past five days. Thankful to be home (less than two hours), I did want to touch base and let you know that I am still alive and well. There's so much to tell......

During a national counseling conference at the beginning of this month, I had the privilege to be introduced to an organization called"One Million Moms". (Click HERE to go to the informative website.) There are so many things out there that can compromise our values - and most of us are so busy that we don't have time to keep up with the dangers, the junk, the things that will harm our families - but that is Monica's passion! 

Below is a letter I received from Monica today. Unbelievable, but yet......this is becoming more and more the norm in our society. And FOX leads the way - as usual.


Newest Animated Character on Fox is a Seven-Year-Old that Drinks and Hits on Women

October 20, 2011

Dear Kim,

A new series on Fox Network, "Allen Gregory," premieres on Sunday, October 30 at 8:30 p.m. EST (7:30 p.m. Central). "Allen Gregory" is a new animated series that tells the story of one of the most pretentious seven-year-olds of our time.
Fox describes Allen Gregory as a young man who is intelligent, sophisticated, worldly, artistic and romantic (which translates into sexy)- characteristics he inherited from his doting father, Richard. Richard's life partner, Jeremy, is helping raise his son, and Allen Gregory has minimal respect, if any at all, for Jeremy. They live together in a loft, along with Julie, Allen Gregory's adopted Cambodian sister.
This sexy, wine drinking seven-year-old thinks he is grown and flirts and hits on women 3-4 times his age, including his teacher. This new series will join the animation lineup along side "Family Guy," "The Cleveland Show," "The Simpsons," and "American Dad."
Please send an email letter to Fox Network urging that they not air this inappropriate new animated series. This controversial content should not air on Sunday evenings during primetime.

Monica Cole, Director


Before viewing the clip from the series, please note that I do not condone any attitude or overlay presented in the show. This video is simply provided for you to see for yourself the makeup of the show. Decide for yourself. Make your own list of concerns. Mine are below:


1.  Narcissistic attitude - all about HIM
2.  Disrespectful to authority - to his father, to his teacher, to the principal
3.  Adult mindset with the opposite sex - flirting and manipulating
4.  Drinking is cool and acceptable - even in a school cafeteria?
5.  Has the look of a teenager - why can't kids just be kids anymore?

Never a fan of Family Guy or The Simpsons, this new Fox show bludgeons family values in a darker, deeper way.
