Ben Patton Staff Media Lead While millions of Gleeks might have enjoyed the Christmas episode of Glee last week, there was another million people who were “outraged” over the gleeful portrayal of the Christmas story. The Christian-based group One Million Moms, who has been linked to anti-gay sentiments aimed at Ellen Degeneres and JCPenny, recently took aim at the hit FOX series after their Christmas episode aired with transgender birthing scenes and a bisexual Santa. The group released a statement via email urging advertisers to pull out of the show. Read the statement below: Other religions do not tolerate this behavior 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 Savior 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 the 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 shown no respect.In another scene, a bisexual "Sexy Santa," gets two female characters and the show's gay male character drunk before robbing them blind - all this 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 and tell kids to ask for mobile devices they could download porn on while wearing skimpy elf costumes. It’s no secret that the hit show has caused waves on many occasions; pushing the boundaries with their controversial themes and depictions of real life struggles, which can be too much for some viewers. While I doubt One Million Moms stands a chance with their plea to advertisers, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I’m not here to place any judgment. What about you PopWrappers; what are your thoughts on this new Glee controversy?
