|One Million Moms disappears from Facebook|

It seems a targeted campaign to have One Million Moms removed from social networking site Facebook because of “hate speech” was a success. Either that, or the anti-gay group was so tired of reading pro-gay posts on its Facebook page that it voluntarily removed itself from the site.
As of this weekend, the group's Facebook page is no longer active. Links on the organization's website still direct to Facebook, only there's nothing there. Poof! Just like that, it's gone.
OMM calls itself “a network of Christian moms and grandmothers taking a stand for our children who are being exploited by the entertainment industry.” They lead a boycott charge against JC Penney over its decision to hire openly-gay Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson. They weren't too happy when the retailer included a happily married gay couple in its Father's Day catalog either. Oh, and don't get them started on the gay Green Lantern.
At its height, One Million Moms had around 46,000 “fans,” but many of those were undoubtedly opponents of the group, a far cry from what its name would suggest.
There's no word from OMM about why the page was removed, but they acknowledge a “copy cat” page was created after their own went offline. The new page, is decidedly less anti-gay than the one it usurped.
Hmm ... It seems the moms have gone into hiding.
