An episode of “Good Luck Charlie” on the Disney Channel introduced a same sex lesbian couple Sunday night and the show is being met with praise and criticism, Fox News reported Tuesday.

Plans to produce an episode of the series with a same-sex couple was first announced over six months ago, so the Good Luck Charlie episode over the weekend was not unexpected.

The episode featured lesbian mothers Susan and Cheryl. The same sex couple were shown dropping off their daughter Taylor for a play date. The fact that Taylor had two mothers came to a surprise to Charlie’s parents, played by Leigh-Allyn Baker and Eric Allan Kramer, and the characters did not keep that surprise a secret.

“Taylor has two moms!” the father blurts out.

“Wow, nothing gets past you, Bob,” his wife quipped.

Miley Cyrus chimes in

One of the Disney Channel’s biggest former stars, Miley Cyrus, AKA Hannah Montana, voiced, or rather Tweeted her support.

“I commend Disney for making this step into the light of this generation,” she wrote on Twitter.

Conservative opposition to same-sex couple on Good Luck Charlie

But the support for the episode featuring a lesbian couple was not supported by everyone. The conservative organization One Million Moms was less than thrilled.

One of the group’s current issues listed on its website reads,

One Million Moms launched an email campaign in 2013 that urged Disney officials to abandon their plans to corrupt the children's network with LGBT content. However, Disney officials have not responded to the thousands of emails protesting their plans. Disney has decided to be politically correct instead of providing family-friendly programming. Disney should stick to entertaining, not pushing an agenda.

Conservative families need to urge Disney to avoid controversial topics that children are far too young to comprehend. This is the last place a parent would expect their children to be confronted with topics that are too difficult for them to understand. Mature issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, and it is extremely unnecessary.

One Million Moms is calling for supporters to contact Care.com to urge the advertiser to withdraw their sponsorship of Good Luck Charlie following the series’ decision to go ahead and introduce an episode with a same sex couple.
