WASHINGTON (BP)--Depictions of religion on broadcast television plummeted during the latest season, according to a new study by the Parents Television Council.
In addition, negative portrayals of religion surpassed positive ones slightly, the PTC reported Dec. 14.
The analysis of prime-time programming on the six commercial broadcast networks for the 2005-06 season showed there were only 1,425 depictions of religion, a 39 percent drop from 2003-04, when there were 2,344 portrayals.
Ah, if only that were true. I had seen some animated Christmas shows that seemed to support Christianity, but when the major networks do anything about Christianity they have former Catholic teachers, note both the words, "former" and "Catholic," in the description, a double dose of error if ever there was one. The ABC network is infamous for using the Jesus Seminar as their experts.
