Passing Gas, Wrong House, -and- Prison Diet

Passing Gas - Iceland abandons gasoline
Wrong House - homeowner shoots and kills intruders
Prison Diet - inmate loses 31 pounds to escape

NBC's "The Book of Daniel" may have launched with a bang, but, today, the show died with a whimper! It pulled unceremoniously from NBC's Friday night schedule, effective immediately, without formal announcement.

"The Book of Daniel," written by a homosexual, was promoted as the only show on television in which Jesus appeared as a recurring character and the only network prime-time drama series with a regular male "gay" character, a 23-year-old Republican son. The main character was a troubled, pill-popping Episcopal priest. The show also featured a wife who relied on midday martinis, a 16-year-old daughter who was a drug dealer, a 16-year-old adopted son who was having sex with the bishop's daughter, and a lesbian secretary.

One NBC affiliate after another dropped the show. Advertisers ran from it. And, apparently, so did viewers.

I find it truly encouraging that affiliates, advertisers, and viewers exhibited moral clarity and raised their voices against such abhorrent programming. Hopefully, this is only the beginning!
