As a consumer, I desire to support companies that are not actively working to oppose my value system. The television program a company chooses to advertise on speaks volumes as to whether or not I choose to buy that product or patronize that business.
And so, as a potential customer, I am contacting you to let you know how troubled I am by your sponsorship of the show Glee on FOX Broadcasting.
Instead of offering positive role models for its millions of young viewers, Glee teaches teens a course in illicit sexuality. The most recent episode entitled “The First Time”, which you sponsored, glorified teenage sexual activity – both heterosexual and homosexual – and gave teens the view that casual sex is meaningless and that young people who chose abstinence are abnormal and “odd.” Our youth are paying the physical and emotional price of these lies – lies your company help pay for.
Glee creator Ryan Murphy has made clear his agenda to push illicit sexuality on our youth and over the airwaves, having stated:
“It is tough to get that sexual point of view across on television. Hopefully I have made it possible for somebody on broadcast television to do a rear-entry scene in three years. Maybe that will be my legacy.”
I urge you to pull support from this concerning program and use your corporate influence in ways that build up, not tear down, our society and our youth, exercising greater care in the ideas and content you promote.
I look forward to your response.
