Lucifer premiered Monday night on FOX with more than seven million viewers tuning in, and one group is not at all happy with the new series. In fact, they are demanding that FOX cancel the series immediately.
One Million Moms has called on networks before to cancel series they object to. At the start of the fall season, they released a call to ABC to cancel The Muppets.
Now, they have set their focus on Lucifer. Read part of their statement about the series below.
“FOX’s new drama “Lucifer” is spiritually dangerous. The new program “Lucifer” glorifies Satan as a caring, likable person in human flesh. The character Lucifer Morningstar makes being the devil look cool, drives a fancy car, gets out of a speeding ticket, owns a nightclub in LA, and is irresistible to women.”
They go on to say that the premiere showed “graphic acts of violence, a nightclub featuring scantily-clad women, and a demon. The message of the show is clear. Lucifer is just misunderstood. He doesn’t want to be a bad guy, it’s God who is forcing him to play that role.”
How does One Million Moms want to get their message about Lucifer? They have asked people to focus on Olive Garden restaurants. They are asking people to contact the restaurant chain and let their feelings known about Lucifer because Olive Garden is sponsoring the FOX series.
