They are using my name... without a warrant

New NBC Drama Show Mocks Christianity
NBC is touting the network's mid-season replacement series "The Book of Daniel" with language that implies it is a serious drama about Christian people and Christian faith. The main character is Daniel Webster, a drug-addicted Episcopal priest whose wife depends heavily on her mid-day martinis.

Webster regularly sees and talks with a very unconventional white-robed, bearded Jesus. The Webster family is rounded out by a 23-year-old homosexual Republican son, a 16-year-old daughter who is a drug dealer, and a 16-year-old adopted son who is having sex with the bishop's daughter.

This is what passes for a family sitcom these days. The only part that shocks me is that the parents are married. AFA has a link on their site to send a letter to those at NBC responsible for this mockery.

No doubt about it! Our entertainment industry is over-ripe and about to fall from the vine where it will further decay into oblivion.

Guess we will all need to stomach the smell till its over.

As said above, the market will dictate what gets shown on TV. This may be offensive to some, but if others like it, it doesn't hurt me any...

Hardly the worst the media has to offer.

This is part of an overall hatred of Christians. The secular entertainment industry is always ready to show everything that can go wrong with those hypocrite Christians. If they did the same thing with Muslims there would be an outrage.

To be perfectly honest, I know alot of Episcop. that go to church that I honestly would not call Christians. Many people use the Christian churches as sort of society-sponsored clubs for good works and coffee clutches. Christianity is much more in-depth than many of these churches give it credit for. I have worked as a musician in many types of these main-stream churches, so I think I know what I am talking about.

Hm, hatred? Sounds to me like it was meant to be a joke. A somewhat tactless one, of course.

And to think, just a few years ago, network television caved in and refused to continue airing the actually funny and intelligent "God, The Devil, and Bob."

My prediction is it wont last a season.

As Americans we are willing to fill our heads with all kinds of stuff we shouldn't be taking in.

But there is still something about outright blasphemy that most Americans wont find funny. In fact, there will be an internal revulsion to it and they will turn the channel.

Mark my words. Under one season.
