Just Another Story that Proves....

Fundies have no freakin' sense of humor.

According to NBC's initial synopsis of the episode, Jack's fictional TV network, Out TV, is taken over by a Christian broadcaster, leading Spears' character to do a cooking segment on his show called "Cruci-fixin's."

The American Family Association immediately raised objections to the planned episode, saying it "mocks the crucifixion of Christ" and will "further denigrate Christianity" by airing the night before Good Friday.

On its Web site, the Mississippi-based advocacy group called on its supporters to urge network affiliates to refuse to run the episode and to write letters of protest to NBC.

Hellena has a suggestion for the American Family Association: Turn the channel if you are offended. Also, if you have time to write letters of protest for this, please think about writing letters for some things that REALLY stand for family values, like tell President Bush that going to war on a LIE is not family values. Write Fred Phelps and tell him that as Christians, you don't think hate speech reflects family values. And while you're at it, write Pat Robertson a letter to tell him to keep his mouth shut as every time he opens it, he spews something other than family values.

I'm sure there's more, but that's enough for now.

Whew, Hellena feels better.....
