A Million Moms, Really?

OneMillionMoms is in the news again blasting Burger King for using "damn" in one of their ads.

So who are these 1,000,000 Moms? This from their FAQ page:
" is a ministry of the American Family Association"

The AFA is a super right "Christian", LGBTQ hating organization and are a driving force behind invented controversies like people being forced to say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”. They are based in Mississippi and that should tell you all you need to know. (P.O. Drawer 2440 Tupelo, Mississippi 38803)

"... (OneMillionMoms) is basically One Meddling Mom with an agenda, and no company should be giving her the credence she so desperately craves. Her name is Monica Cole. In the decade that I have been aware of One Million Moms, she is quite literally the only staff member I have ever heard anyone name. She is the one and only person who appears on their petitions, as well as the one and only person who speaks for them to the media. She is the mom. Her. Solo. One person, supposedly representing one million."

"On Twitter, @1milmoms (created in February 2010) boasted a grand total of 4,525 followers... On Facebook, the page had a far bigger following than it did on Twitter. In fact, 98,649 people liked the page as of December 17 2019; a lower 93,533 followed the page for updates.
In their individual efforts, petitions to “pressure” various groups seem to garner slightly less than 15,000 signatures."

As Ellen said, ",,,They are rounding up to one million..."
