Offend a Moslem and you are threatened with death. Offend a Christian and the United States public declares that you are a right-wing, librel-hating wackjob with a tiny mind.
Here is the latest anti-Christian entertainment news:
A conservative advocacy group accuses NBC of "hitting back" at the Christian community in an upcoming episode of "Will and Grace."
The April 13 episode will mock the crucifixion of Christ, the American Family Association said. AFA pointed to wire reports saying that Britney Spears will make a guest appearance on the April 13 "Will and Grace," playing a conservative Christian sidekick to Sean Hayes' homosexual character, Jack.
When Jack's fictional TV network, Out TV, is bought by a Christian TV network, Spears hosts a cooking segment called "Cruci-fixin's." "To further denigrate Christianity, NBC chose to air [the episode] the night before Good Friday," AFA Founder and Chairman Donald E. Wildmon complained. "NBC does not treat Jews, Muslims or other religions with such disrespect. Yet the network demonstrates a deep of hostility toward followers of Christ."
NBC recently cancelled a series called "The Book of Daniel," amid loud complaints from conservative Christians who saw the series as a slur on Christianity. (See related story) The series was canceled only three episodes into its season; NBC blamed low ratings, but Wildmon said it went away because "NBC had to eat millions of dollars each time it aired."
Now AFA is urging Americans to wage a similar protest against the upcoming "Will and Grace" episode."Call your local NBC affiliate and ask them not to air the April 13 episode of "Will and Grace," AFA said in a message to supporters.The group also wants concerned Christians to send a letter of complaint to NBC Chairman Bob Wright, and to spread the word about NBC's latest insult in church bulletins and newsletters.
