In another setback to One Million Moms, the conservative Christian campaign has retreated from Facebook after a post about DC Comics’ reintroduction of Green Lantern Alan Scott as gay was inundated by comments largely supportive of the publisher’s decision.
The New Civil Rights Movement reports that moments after issuing a “warning” Friday about DC’s official announcement (see below), the page’s administrator began deleting positive comments before apparently giving up and removing the post entirely. Shortly afterward, the One Million Moms page disappeared from Facebook, certainly the initiative’s most valuable social media platform. The abrupt exodus was followed by a tweet announcing, unconvincingly, to Facebook users that, “OMM will be offline most of next week for Vacation Bible School!”
The timing might not be quite as suspect if One Million Moms hadn’t pulled the same disappearing act in February, after its boycott of retail chain JC Penney for hiring Ellen DeGeneres as a spokeswoman backfired spectacularly, drawing supporters of the lesbian talk-show host in droves to the group’s Facebook page.
What’s crazy about these One Million Mom clowns (and really, does anyone believe there are a million of ’em) is that they aren’t even picking battles with proposed changes in the law regarding gay rights. No, they’re such bigots that they are spasmodically protesting the mere existence of gays.
