Christian Moms Label ‘How to Get Away With Murder’ as Soft Porn

Barb Wire

How to Get Away With Murder. What a name for a show, and it’s certainly indicative of the days in which we live.

But is it appropriate for prime time TV while kids are watching? Is it, for that matter, appropriate for television at all?

One Million Moms doesn’t think so and the activist group is targeting the Shonda Rimes series on ABC in its latest campaign. The group called the show “creepy.”

How to Get Away With Murder is a serial legal drama that hit the airwaves on Sept. 25. Viola Davis stars as a law professor at a high-profile Philadelphia university. She becomes entwined in a murder plot with her students. Over 14 million viewers watched the series premiere, and critics lauded the show.

“There is a whole slew of sins in this series that the network calls entertainment. This program has included assault and murder on several occasions, as well as graphic heterosexual and homosexual sex scenes on a pornographic level, foul language, mockery of Jesus Christ and Christians, sex with a minor (statutory rape), adultery and marital affairs,” One Million Moms bemoans in its alert.

“This series also pushes casual sex as acceptable, even when with multiple partners and encounters in public places. This wicked show has many dark images including a rotting corpse, dead bodies and other gore. Even though the program airs on Thursday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET/9:00 p.m. CT, it is not late enough for this violent, twisted plot and sensual scenes that are completely soft porn.”
