When liberals took over the Disney Channel, they were hoping for a happy ending for their agenda. What they're getting is anything but. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. If you're looking for conservative values at Disney, it really is a small world after all. Producers made that clear when they introduced the channel's first same-sex couple to kids. After a year of planning, Disney finally made good on its promise, using the show "Good Luck Charlie" to give Taylor two moms. A spokesman says the show "was developed under the [advice] of child development experts..." But if Disney thinks that'll fly with parents, they've spent too much time in Fantasyland. OneMillionMoms is flooding the channel with complaints. Like us, they know what the research says: which is that kids who are deprived of a mom or dad grow up with significantly more emotional and academic problems. So it's a little ironic that the show's called, "Good luck, Charlie." Without a dad, he'll need it.
