World Net Daily is reporting two stories that show that bigotry against Christians on television is becoming almost common place. The first involves the show “Late Night With Conan O’Brien”:

Excerpt:

NBC has plummeted to the level of CBS, with a late-night skit that blatantly mocks Christianity by portraying Jesus as a homosexual voyeur, a stunt that would have been instantly condemned nationwide if it had focused on any subject other than Christianity, according to a pro-life leader.

Excerpt:

“The NBC and CBS television networks may be rival corporations, but they have one thing in common,” he said. “Both networks have allowed programming that blatantly mocks Christianity.”
He told WND in an interview that the fact that such ridicule is allowed in the U.S. reflects more on Christians than on non-Christians.
“We’ve been put in the back of society’s bus. The bad thing is we’re willing to do it. If we responded like blacks, Jews, you name the different groups, homosexuals… If we responded like they do, only in love, this kind of thing wouldn’t happen. It wouldn’t be tolerated here,” he said.

Excerpt:

In the latest episode, O’Brien introduces the skit: “Our last new character’s heart is in the right place, even if he’s a complete idiot. Please welcome … the homophobic country western singer.”
Then a middle-aged man wearing western clothes comes out from behind a curtain and starts to play a guitar and sing:

Oh I love you Jesus
But only as a friend.

You touched my heart but I hope

That’s where the touchin’ ends.

You’re always lookin’ over me

When I need a higher power.

But you better look at somethin’ else

When I’m in the shower.

“The idea that anyone would think about the Son of God in this way is simply appalling,” Scott said. “The inferences that permeate the song are utterly disgusting.”

Scott said he’s written to Kevin Reilly, president of NBC Entertainment, objecting to the airing of this material.

“I notice the song was not about a Rabbi. I notice the song was not about Buddha. I notice the song was not about Muhammad. If it had been about any of these, the network would surely have disallowed the airing of such garbage,” Scott said in the letter. “But since the song was about Jesus Christ, nothing was done.”

The other case involves the show “Two and a Half Men”:

Excerpt:

On the Dec. 11 episode of “Two and a Half Men,” actor Charlie Sheen was shown lighting candles and adjusting Christmas decorations, apparently in preparation for a party.

He’s singing the melody of “Joy To The World,” but the words have been altered to:

Joy to the world I’m getting laid

I’m getting laid tonight.

We’ll light the Yule log

Deck the halls

And then we’ll play some

Jingle balls.

It’s been a real long wait

This is our second date

It’s Christmas Eve

And I’m getting laid.

The Tupelo, Miss.-based AFA said that’s unacceptable to the vast majority of Christians. The association, with millions of supporters, takes Christian stands on gambling, “gays,” pornography and abortion, and many other social issues. Its previous boycott promotions have been credited with having an impact on corporate behavior in America.

“CBS approved Sheen’s adaptation of the favorite Christmas carol, making it into a vulgar sex song,” said Donald E. Wildmon, chairman of the group. “The network and sponsors paid Sheen to mock Christ, Christmas and Christians. Many in the Christian community are growing tired of this bigotry by the networks and Hollywood.”
