Ironic Follow-up on "The Book of Daniel"

Okay, so NBC completely dumps "The Book of Daniel" and as par for the course the American Family Association is claiming it's all because of them.

AFA Chair Don Wildmon was quoted as saying:

“This shows the average American that he doesn’t have to simply sit back and take the trash being offered on TV, but he can get involved and fight back with his pocketbook.”

Don, are those the same pocketbooks that are opening for "Brokeback Mountain"? Teehee

Anyway, the biggest irony is that this "trash" is being replaced with re-runs of "Law & Order."

Supposedly, it's much more wholesome and family-oriented to tell stories of murder, adultery, rape, and incest than a priest with a not-so-picture-perfect family. Now, if the priest had kicked his gay son out of the house in the first episode, the show would have been lauded as "groundbreaking" and "classicly American."

Hypocrites!

Cassy, you'll have to trust me on this, but the priest's family problems have zero to do with we religious conservatives' problems with The Book of Daniel. It is a rare family, no matter how conservative, that doesn't have a "black sheep" or two at the family reunions. Mine sure does, on both sides, and we haven't kicked anybody out yet.

The Book of Daniel was problematic because of its vacuous portrayal of Jesus and its dismissive additude towards the Gospel. Period.
