Two more NBC-TV affiliates have dropped the new series "The Book of Daniel" in response to the protest of viewers who consider it offensive to Christians.
Stations in Nashville, Tenn. and Amarillo, Texas, announced this week they would no longer carry the program, says the American Family Association, which launched a protest campaign last month. Earlier, stations in Terre Haute, Ind.; Tupelo and Meridian, Miss.; Little Rock, Ark.; and Beaumont, Texas, dropped the show. The NBC affiliate in Hattiesburg, Miss., also is considering not airing it....
I might be totally in favor of a show like this if there were some way to clearly communicate that this is a portrayal of APOSTATE christianity rather than the genuine article, but I just don't see that happening.
Even if the affiliates weren't refusing to carry the show, the ratings for it were bad, thank goodness. It should be canceled and if the ratings go lower, it should be canceled sooner rather than later.
Just for the record, I blame Christians who will watch anything anywhere as long as they can use it as an 'evangelistic' or 'church growth' tool (barf). If The Passion and Narnia hadn't been such cash making cows, Hollywood wouldn't be doing its best to exploit the 'Christian' community in every way possible. If the Christian community continues to support psuedo Christian entertainment, we can expect to continue seeing this sort of trashing from Hollywood, because they'll be doing their best to make money off it on both ends. Selling fake Christian stuff to Christians and selling disdainful stuff to those who hate Christians.
