Fox and advertisers assault upon Christmas and our youth

By: American Decency Staff

It should come as no surprise that Seth MacFarlane, the creator of Fox TV’s debased cartoons Family Guy and American Dad, is an avowed atheist.  Yet that doesn’t keep MacFarlane from producing “Christmasâ€Â episodes of his vulgar and profane animated shows.   And while some secularists shy away from referring to the holiday as “Christmas,â€Â MacFarlane is blatant in his use of the word – not to honor it, however, but to mock it. Knowing what we know about MacFarlane and these shows, it also comes as no surprise that he uses the theme of Christmas to bring an assault upon decency with both barrels. Below we give a brief synopsis of this week’s Family Guy and American Dad.  These shows are extremely graphic, yet we want to give you an idea of what our youth are being exposed to and what advertisers are empowering, without being too explicit.  Know that what is described below is toned down from what is shown on television. Sunday night’s episode of Family Guy was narrated by MacFarlane’s father shown in a cozy Christmas setting as a grandfather telling children a Christmas story.  However, this narration was no “Night before Christmas,â€Â rather a vulgarity-ridden diatribe that revealed that the apple did not fall far from the tree in the MacFarlane family.  MacFarlane’s father’s crudities included a comment that his son “Seth came out of my penisâ€Â and he offers to sell marijuana to viewers. Those opening comments only set the stage for the episode which began with the Family Guy characters singing about what they want for Christmas.  Husband and father Peter sang that his Christmas list is:  “Jessica Biel and Megan Fox wearing nothing but their socks, is all I really want for Christmas.â€Â While he’s singing two naked women are shown coming out of giant boxes.  Peter’s wife wants to “spend a week in Mexico with two black guys and some blow (cocaine).â€Â Stewie, the pre-school character, grabs his private parts and tells the family dog, “I’ve got your Christmas right here.â€Â Their teenage son wants a woman in his bed and a sex-addicted friend sings, “Japanese girls with no retrain, just to chock me ‘til I faint,â€Â while images are shown of him in bondage surrounded by several leather-clad dominatrix women whipping him. These are the opening scenes to this 8:00 p.m. animated show – a program that draws millions of young viewers.  The episode only gets progressively crude with references to vulgar sex acts, foul language, and violence.  The episode also makes a mocking statement about God, and when two of the characters travel to the North Pole to see Santa, Santa is portrayed as a Muslim and shown with a pornographic picture of a woman on his office wall. After this hour-long Family Guy, American Dad continued with the same debased themes which included blatant references to perverse sexual acts, including bestiality as one character prepares to have sex with a dead reindeer. One aspect of Family Guy and American Dad we haven’t mentioned as much as the sexual perversity, is their regular depiction of gruesome violence.  These are cartoons, but we’re not talking about silly depictions of Wile E. Coyote trying to blow up the Roadrunner.    These are morbid, graphic violent acts showing psychopathic forms of violence.  This episode of Family Guy showed the explicit and bloody cutting off of limbs, a horrific and conscienceless  beating death of a husband and father in front of his wife, the terrorizing of a child, and much more. Research has long shown a detrimental impact on young people from the depiction of violence – including animated violence from video games, and by correlation, shows such as Family Guy.  In monitoring these truly gruesome scenes, I can’t imagine the impact it has on desensitizing young, impressionable hearts and minds. And week after week advertisers empower such horrible scenes and perverse themes and dialog. Take Action!
