New NBC TV show mocks Christianity

That's what the American Family Association says, anyway. The AFA apparently doesn't like what they've heard about NBC's upcoming series, "The Book of Daniel." The AFA says that the show portrays an Episcopal priest as "drug-addicted" and shows him consulting with Jesus. The AFA also claims that "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. At the office [Webster's] lesbian secretary is sleeping with his sister-in-law."

Homosexuals, drugs, and sex, oh my!

The AFA is urging its members to sign an on-line petition to NBC chairman Bob Wright, demanding that the network show "a little more respect for Christians who believe the Bible."

NBC's response to the AFA: "The Book of Daniel is a fictional drama about an Episcopalian priest's family and the contemporary issues with which they must grapple. We're confident that once audiences view this quality drama themselves, they'll appreciate this thought-provoking examination of one American family."

Our response to the AFA: If you don't like it, don't watch it.
