Lucifer TV Series: One Million Moms Continues to Urge FOX to Discontinue TV Series, Lucifer

Calls to Stop Airing FOX TV Series Lucifer
In a series of calls to stop the TV show which started airing back in January 2016, suggesting that Lucifer, or "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."
As One Million Moms suggested,
The series focuses on Lucifer portrayed as a good guy "who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell." He resigns his throne, abandons his kingdom, and retires to Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals.
At the same time, God's emissary, the angel Amenadiel, has been sent to Los Angeles to convince Lucifer to return to the underworld. Lucifer questions Amenadiel, "Do you think I'm the devil because I'm inherently evil or just because dear old Dad decided I was?" The question is meant to make people rethink assumptions about good and evil, including about God and Satan.
The premiere included 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.
One Million Moms also posted that the latest TV series by FOX, "is a new comedy that focuses on a holier-than-thou character who is anything but that. The network also cast children in scenes that are extremely inappropriate, such as the angel using foul language in front of them and then joking that she never promised to be G-rated."
Encouraging Sponsors to Stop Supporting TV Series Lucifer
In one of their recent calls for sponsors to stop supporting FOX TV series, Lucifer, One Million Moms asked "Olive Garden, who sponsored the spiritually dangerous program 'Lucifer' and paid corporate dollars to promote their restaurants in association with the content of the program."
