TV Station Won't Air Show Featuring Jesus


An Indiana television station is refusing to air a new NBC series that features Jesus Christ as a supporting character, citing complaints from viewers.

"The Book of Daniel," which debuts Friday, stars Aidan Quinn as an Episcopal priest who speaks to a physical Jesus Christ.

Duane Lammers, WTWO-TV's general manager, said he was exercising the station's right to reject network programming.

"If my action causes people in our community to pay more attention to what they watch on television, I have accomplished my mission," he said in a statement posted on the station's Web site.

The show has drawn fire from conservative Christians, including the Tupelo, Miss.-based American Family Association.

"We expect other NBC affiliates will join WTWO in their decision," said the AFA's chairman, Donald E. Wildmon. It was not immediately clear whether any other stations planned to do so.

NBC Entertainment President Kevin Reilly told The New York Times last month that the show was intended to be thought-provoking.

"Some of the best shows on TV start with the perception of controversy, which is usually not an issue if it's backed by quality," Reilly said.

On the Net:



~'Jesus in a supporting role'. LOL

~And this of course has nothing to do with the minister's son being gay and 'out' only to his family. A good Christian would send his faggy lil ass off to a Dominionist Re-education Camp.

Bill O'Reilly got into it with David Letterman last night. It was spectacular when the gloves came off.

My $.02: O'Reilly could have been a typical Letterman guest and loosened up and had a few laughs, but instead decided to try to make a scene of his appearance on the show, and it really cost him. Lesson learned: Don't f*** with a professional! ;-)

Highlight of the show.. )

A bit scary

In his Newsweek column, Rabbi Marc Gellman praises the actions of the Evangelicals for their assistance after Katrina with phrases like:

"I hope that even people who are suspicious of their motives for America can admire the power of their good works when America needed good works the most."


"Even if they wanted to evangelize the storm-tossed remnants after giving them food, shelter and clothing—who cares?"

This is exactly the sort of attitude that lets the Talibangicals get away with their various schemes. Not to vilify charity here, but turning a blind eye to their true purpose is like letting a rabid dog loose in a pre-school just because it scared off some thieves in the night.

Charity is a fantastic cover, as Jim Jones found out in the late 70s, and because it has been abused to such an extent, I think that charitable organizations should be held to the same standards for reporting and conduct as any other business. As we've read, the Salvation Army has a lock on the modern day American Slave Market, but that remains one of those wink-and-a-nod secrets. If any for-profit business tried to emulate, they would be set upon faster than hungry shark on a fat baby seal, but since the Salvation Army is a charitable organization (and a "Christian" one at that), they fall completely under the radar.

Fundamentalist Christians are the worst kind of "Zionists"



Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson suggested Thursday that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was divine punishment for "dividing God's land."

"God considers this land to be his," Robertson said on his TV program "The 700 Club." "You read the Bible and he says 'This is my land,' and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, 'No, this is mine."'


He also said, however, that in the Bible, the prophet Joel "makes it very clear that God has enmity against those who 'divide my land.'"

Robertson added, "I would say woe to any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the EU, the United Nations, or the United States of America."

He noted that former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated.

Robertson said God's message is, "This land belongs to me. You'd better leave it alone."

Quite frankly, Christian "Zionism" shouldn't be considered anything of the sort. Unlike authentic Zionism (which I have objections to), Christian "Zionism" supports the state of Israel not out of concern for the survivability of the Jewish people and/or nation-state, but because of a Christian theological belief that says that Jesus will return and wipe out the non-believers (including Jews who do not convert to Christianity) and the existence of a Jewish state called "Israel" is essential for this warped and evil theology.

Plus, they just plain hate Muslims. (They hate Jews, too, but they won't say that out loud, since they're using the Jews.)
