Two family television watchdog groups are warning parents that the new version of the iconic children's series "The Muppets" is no longer the loveable kids show it used to be and is now exposing children to sexual innuendo and references to alcohol, drug use and adult content every three and a half minutes.
The Parents Television Council and One Million Moms have launched campaigns informing parents that ABC's new adaptation of "The Muppets," which features beloved children's characters Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog, is not suitable for younger viewers.
The first four episodes of the new series, which premiered on Sept. 22 and airs Tuesday evenings during primetime, featured adult content every three minutes and 38 seconds, according to research compiled by PTC. In the four episodes there were 33 different adult references, with 46 percent being sexual and 45 percent related to drug or alcohol use. more >>

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The LGBT agenda will not outlast Christian witness, according to Michael Brown, founder and president of FIRE School of Ministry, who believes "the gay revolution has within itself the seeds of self-destruction."
Speaking at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics at Calvary Church earlier this month, Brown said while many churches don't want to address issues pertaining to LGBT culture and rights, he believes they "absolutely must be addressed."
