Will and Grace Update

According to the website of the American Family Association, producers of Will and Grace have elected to pull the show featuring Britney Federline's "conservative Christian" character due to pressure placed on them by the viewing public.

Some have asked, "Why do you care? Shouldn't we expect unbelievers to act like unbelievers? What good does it do to boycott programs because of their moral content?"

The answer is, as a Christian, I understand that unbelievers won't conform to the moral standard of Christianity, because they can't. But as an American, I have the ability and privilege in a free-market society to affect change in culture through my vote.

While the fact that NBC has taken this offensive episode off the air doesn't get them a step closer to Christ, their real need, it does prevent NBC from further murking up already muddy waters by propogating stereotypes of Christianity that are an unfair characteristic of the belief-system I follow. The more often secular television unfairly presents a stereotype of what Christianity is about, the more baggage we have to fight through to reveal the Truth behind Christianity.

I'm between classes right now, but wanted to post this while I had a chance. Maybe I'll further clarify my thoughts on this issue later.

So Chris did you make up the F.A.T. thing, or did you "steal" that, because I just noticed in my magazine that they use the exact same acronym.

Everything I've ever taught you has been stolen from someone smarter and/or wiser than me. Hope that's okay :)

That's fine by me. By the way Cord is teaching a class before red pill using a book by someone named Hendricks sound familiar :)
