One Million Moms is targeting Disney Channel’s show Good Luck Charlie for featuring a storyline with two lesbian mothers. The episode isn’t scheduled to air until 2014 but these ladies are urging the network to scrap the entire episode. In one of the episodes, parent Amy and Bob Duncan schedule a playdate for their preschooler, Charlie, with a new friend who happens to have two mothers.
