The creator of NBC's The Book of Daniel is warning viewers that "bullies" at the American Family Association may succeed in their fight to kill the show unless viewers speak up.
Jack Kenny, the creative force behind the prime-time drama about an Episcopal priest and his dysfunctional family, posted his appeal on a blog, www.blogofdaniel.com, whose host is the Episcopal Diocese of Washington.
It is interesting that Jack Kenney calls those who vocalize their protest for his type of entertainment "bullies," but I wonder what the difference is for someone who attempts to pour their filth and disrespect for our LORD and HIS Word out to a national audience in the name of "entertainment." I think we can assume it to be a brand of "bullying." Praise the Lord for the removal of this show, whether it was due to ratings or morals; it has been removed nevertheless.
If the show's creator really wants to experience "bullying" let him try doing a show in the same vein about a rabbi.
I always wondered if "Thelma & Louise" would have ever made it to the theatres if it was called "Rhoda & Zina" & set in Brooklyn instead of the South, & the villains were not good old boys, but a couple of Manhattan jewelers. Fat chance.
I have a special alert message that AFA sends me whenever they feel a Christian needs to take some action. I did send a letter of concern on this very topic and I am happy to see that it didnt go to waste.
They have you type in your zip code and I guess this is attached to a database which runs a query finding out what senator represents you. They then will have a templated letter that you can change to your liking and then you hit the send button. They make it very simple for us to get the message to the people that have the power to get the needed attention. This country desperatly needs christians to get more involved with the people that can make a difference. And the AFA is a good starting place.
Below is the web site for the AFA, please pass it on.
Ick. This show gives everyone the creeps and the reviews by unbelievers were terrible. Al Mohler is right, if it was quality (by the world's standards), the fact that Christians are offended would make no difference because unbelievers would watch it just like they watch Desparate Housewives. Al Mohler is also correct in that this man has no constitutional right to have a hit show.
If people don't want to watch, for whatever reason, that's just the way it is.
