AFA ripping 'The Book of Daniel' to shreds

by Jeremy Hooper

   The folks at the American Family Association are encouraging their followers to write NBC executives to protest the yet-to-air show "The Book of Daniel," because they say the hour-long drama "mocks Christianity." Among the AFA's points of contention with the program (which they note is written by a "practicing homosexual") is that the show's central family features "a 23-year-old homosexual Republican son," and the show's main character has a "lesbian secretary [who] is sleeping with his sister-in-law." The AFA also makes a specific, sorta out of place comment that "The homosexual son will be network prime-time's only regular homosexual character in a drama series."

To which we say: This is simply OUTRAGEOUS; there isn't a regular homo on any primetime drama series? If there's one thing the gays know, it's drama -- how can this be? Thanks for pointing out this gross oversight, AFA.

In a related story, we are encouraging our followers to protest "Joey," because it is a televised turd. Just ill-conceived, that one.

***If you would like to write to NBC and encourage them to stand strong against the AFA, you can email them here. If you choose to do so, you might want to point out that this same organization recently accused the Walgreens company of sponsoring a gay event in order to encourage HIV, therefore increasing the need for their HIV drugs.
