There are only two episodes of Bridgit Mendler's hit Disney Channel series Good Luck Charlie. It has been reported that sometime between now and the season finale, the show will introduce a same sex couple. Now One Million Moms is protesting the show and the Disney Channel for featuring a gay character.

Good Luck Charile is almost at its end, but the hit series won't go quietly. The show is reported to feature a family with two same sex parents.

Now the radical anti-everything group One Million Moms has launched a campaign to stop the upcoming episode. Apparently, you can have One Million Moms, but not two in any one family. The group's rally cry, in part, reads:

“Disney Channel has very few sponsors and advertisers on its network. Care.com was the only Disney Channel sponsor that was promoted during the January 19, 2014, newest episode of Good Luck Charlie. Care.com often sponsors programs on the Disney network."

"An upcoming episode in this last season of Good Luck Charlie will feature a family with two moms, a first for Disney Channel. Because Good Luck Charlie is coming to a close, the characters are only expected to appear in one episode. However, one episode is enough, especially since the network repeatedly airs reruns of all its programs."

One Million Moms launched an email campaign in 2013 that urged Disney officials to abandon their plans to corrupt the children’s network with LGBT content.

However, Disney officials have not responded to the thousands of emails protesting their plans. Disney has decided to be politically correct instead of providing family-friendly programming. Disney should stick to entertaining, not pushing an agenda.”

What do you think about the Good Luck Charlie having an openly gay character? The season finale of GLC airs Sunday, February 16 at 8 p.m on The Disney Channel.
