Default NBC to mock the Crucifixion of Christ

NBC to mock the Crucifixion of Christ



NBC, fresh from giving us the anti-Christian The Book of Daniel, has decided to hit back at the Christian community by presenting an episode of Will and Grace which mocks the crucifixion of Christ.

On the April 13 edition of NBC's Will and Grace, Britney Spears will appear as a Christian conservative sidekick to Sean Hayes' homosexual character, Jack, who hosts his own talk show.

Jack's fictional network, Out TV, is bought by a Christian TV network, leading to Spears contributing a cooking segment called "Cruci-fixin's."
To further denigrate Christianity, NBC chose to air it the night before Good Friday.

Click Here to read the Associated Press article.

NBC does not treat Jews, Muslins or other religions with such disrespect. Yet the network demonstrates a deep of hostility toward followers of Christ.

TAKE ACTION
  1. Call your local NBC affiliate and ask them not to air the April 13 episode of Will and Grace. Ask others to call. Click here to find your local NBC station.
  2. Click here to send a letter to NBC Chairman Bob Wright. Ask your pastor to run a notice in your church bulletins and newsletters and request members to go to www.afa.net and send the email to NBC Chairman Wright.
  3. Click here to print out a petition(pdf) asking your local NBC affiliate not to air the April 13 episode and distribute it to your Sunday School class and fellow church members.
Next, and this is very important, please forward this to your friends and family today!

If you feel our efforts are worthy, would you consider making a small donation to help us in this effort. Click here to make your donation.

Thanks for caring enough to get involved.


Sincerely,

Donald E. Wildmon, Chairman

P.S. Please forward this to your family and friends!

I suppose I should be shocked, but sadly-I'm not. I did send a letter to NBC.

For me, I think it is time to pull the plug.

That really makes me sick! I signed the letter to NBC, and I also alerted The Catholic League in case they haven't heard of this yet.

1) That show is dead anyhow and this will burry it further.
2) Basically it is the same show over and over. Its repetitive and stupid.
3) NBC is going down the tubes already.

Forced to pull its highly touted new show "The Book of Daniel" last week because of charges its portrayal of Jesus was blasphemous, NBC is pushing the envelope again with news Britney Spears will guest star on "Will & Grace" as a conservative who hosts on a Christian TV network a cooking segment called "Cruci-fixin's."

I do not know. However, saying that, I may have a way to get NBC to watch it. Being a huge NASCAR fan, I think if enough of us fabs write the governing body, me may get results due to many of the second half races being on NBC. NASCAR fans tend to be stronger Christians and do not take lightly to this type of stuff.

They are ruining the entertainment value of TV, which IMO is in the negative numbers now.
I'm sure the sponsors will be the next to feel the wrath.

Not only do I hope the Catholic League gets on this, but with all the **** that NBC puts out, I'm considering not even tuning in to their channel at all anymore.

They nominate movies that most people aren't going to see due to a gay rights agenda of theirs in Hollyweird. They don't care that they aren't earning that much money on these movies. I guess NBC is taking the same strategy. We can all boycott, send letters and ruin their numbers. Maybe they will get the message. I quit watching TV sitcoms a few years ago and I haven't missed them.
