Tolerance?

This just in from Fox News

NEW YORK — Britney Spears will guest star on an episode of "Will & Grace," NBC announced Tuesday. The pop star will appear as a Christian conservative sidekick to Sean Hayes' character, Jack, who hosts his own talk show, on the April 13 episode, the network said.
Jack's fictional network, Out TV, is bought by a Christian TV network, leading to Spears contributing a cooking segment called "Cruci-fixin's." As a young girl, the 24-year-old Spears was a regular on "The Mickey Mouse Club." After becoming a pop singer, she starred in the critically panned 2002 film "Crossroads."Last September, Spears gave birth to her first child, son Sean Preston, with husband Kevin Federline. "Will & Grace," which also stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing and Megan Mullally, is in its eighth and final season. It airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. (EST).


This is probably not the best place for this public confession, but I watch Will and Grace fairly regularly. I don't agree with the agenda behind the show, and I certainly don't care for the casual way the cast members deal with serious issues. But dang it, the show is funny.

This episode might spell the end of my toleration.

I'm confident the writers of Will and Grace will present a fair portrayal of conservative Christians. I'm sure Britney Spears (ahem... Federline) will present an intellectual, caring, loving, Christlike portrayal of Christianity. Yeah right.

I could be wrong, but isn't this head-on attack of other ideals the exact same intolerance that has been the rallying cry for the homosexual agenda over the past ten or so years? When we do it, it's intolerance - hate speech. When they do it, it's activism.

Honestly, I wouldn't have a problem with Will and Grace promoting whatever agenda they want to promote; I can change the channel if it offends me. But if they're going to dish it out, they had better be ready to take it. The tolerance argument wins no sympathy from me if it isn't going to go both ways.
