Is this what Olive Garden deserves?

Religious censorship group One Million Moms is asking people to boycott Olive Garden because of its sponsorship deal with FOX's "Lucifer," calling the DC/Vertigo Comics-based series a "spiritually dangerous program."

On their website, the group asks viewers to "take action" against the series and Olive Garden, its corporate sponsor, with the following plea:

Contact Olive Garden, who sponsored the spiritually dangerous program "Lucifer" and paid corporate dollars to promote their restaurants in association with the content of the program.

Use the information we have provided on our website, and let Olive Garden know that its advertising dollars are supporting sympathy towards the devil and glorifying Satan and that financial support should be pulled immediately.

Of course, considering the religious nature of the series, "Lucifer" was bound to cause an uproar with some groups -- but does America's beloved Olive Garden deserve an attack?

Starring Tom Ellis as the spiritually dangerous lead, "Lucifer" airs Mondays at 9/8c on FOX.
