Yet They Say There Is No Attack On Christianity

We just went through the Christmas season and all the anticipated hatred spewed by hate groups who want to remove Christ from Christmas. When Bill O'Reilly went on the air and said there was an attack on Christmas he was made out to be a nut. Rush Limbaugh says that the attack has been there for years but now Christians are fighting back so the left just simply states there never was an attack. I view the attack on Christmas, and yes there is one, as an extension of the attacks on Christianity that take place everyday. This is done under the guise of separation of all religions from state (something not espoused in the Constitution) but when you break it down, Christians are the people who are usually censored.

Now comes this new show from NBC called The Book of Daniel. It is supposed to give us an accurate portrayal of Christian life and how Jesus fits into it. Read the following and tell me if this is not an attack on Christian values and in addition, a cheap shot at Republicans:

NBC considers new show featuring a completely dysfunctional family a positive portrayal of Christ and Christians
Dear Wayne,
On January 6, NBC will begin a new series entitled The Book of Daniel.

While the public has not seen the program, NBC is promoting "The Book of Daniel" as a serious drama about Christian people and the Christian faith. The main character is Daniel Webster, a drug-addicted Episcopal priest whose wife depends heavily on her mid-day martinis.

Webster regularly sees and talks with a very unconventional white-robed, bearded Jesus. The Webster family is rounded out by a 23-year-old homosexual Republican son, a 16-year-old daughter who is a drug dealer, and a 16-year-old adopted son who is having sex with the bishop's daughter. At the office, his lesbian secretary is sleeping with his sister-in-law.

NBC and the mainstream media call it "edgy," "challenging" and "courageous." The series is written by Jack Kenny, a practicing homosexual who describes himself as being "in Catholic recovery," and is interested in Buddhist teachings about reincarnation and isn't sure exactly how he defines God and/or Jesus. "I don't necessarily know that all the myth surrounding him (Jesus) is true," he said.

NBC considers The Book of Daniel a positive portrayal of Christ and Christians.

Now the media and the anti-Christian coalitions out there can tell us all they want but this show is a direct attack on Christians and their values. I am not indicating that there are not homosexual Republicans or clergy who have sexual affairs or even that there are not Christians who are gay. I am merely stating that this show is an attack on the values of Christians using those things that Christians (and Republicans) oppose as an item of reality within the family depicted by the show.

I imagine if we had a show about The Book of Mohamed and it featured little Habib growing up learning to manufacture bomb vests while daddy was out deflowering little boys in the village and mommy was forcing her little girls to keep their bodies covered and to be subservient to men there would be an uproar like you have never hear. Look at how the movie The Passion of the Christ got the Jews all up in arms. Yet, we can continue this attack on Christians because it is the "right" thing to do.

You can read about it here (includes actions you can take).
